Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.


Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewellery on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

-*I clumsily walk swaying over to the woman* “Ma’m arrreee uo *hic* oook?” *I look down to see her bleeding* “Ohh ey, yer bleeding… Imma go… get… some elp” *I pass out and fall to the ground*

Question 2

You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

-*I pull out my Lute and start to strum a bit catching the eyes of some of the refugees. I start playing some songs I learned from the merchants when I was a child. The refugee children sat intently listening to my ballads of battles, adventures, and love stories. Soon the guards from Telth approached me to let me know I could come in but I sat longer and continued to play my Lute.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much, but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders. You...

  • *being a merchant’s child I’ve had experience with questionable food and I take up the challenge. As soon as the food hits my tastebuds im reminded of the sea and the sailors who came to port and shared with me their spare cooked fish, and their stories. I awaken from my trance to notice the woman has made off with my pouch of coins. I then decide to keep my sword by side tonight.*

Question 4

In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. They continue to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name in despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

  • *I put my sword down and let the man live. I then go and regroup with the rest of my fellow soldiers before the enemy forces encroach us.*

Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what have felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few metres ahead. Being almost out of resources, you are delighted to find out that you have stumbled your way to a village. Upon closer inspection you find out it's a Northern village, and the residents are not very friendly towards strangers. What do you do in this dire situation?

-*I beg to the villagers* “Please just let me wait the storm out in the pig pen. I have money to pay for food.” *The villagers decide to refuse housing me but they will sell me food.* “Will you be able to tell where I’m at so I can tell where I’m going?” *The villagers give me their name and I quickly find their village on the map. I continue off in the direction for the nearest city hoping that I don’t die.”
