- 1589345961734.png

Name:

-Tektrill

Age:

-22

Culture:

-Oserians

Story & Biography (please go into detail, we recommend two paragraphs but expect at least one. Please outline character history, personality traits and the things that make your character unique. Have fun with this section!)

(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted) Found here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/intrigue-application.119/ (Intrigue Application)

-Tektrill was raised in a small family having his mom and his little brother, they were loving but times were trying, being an oserian he worked long and hard from a young age, but like most oserian boys he dreamed to one day join the military, he is strong willed and hopes to do everything he can to fight for his home one day but fears what will happen if he leaves his small family, he knows the oserian people look out for each other but he stills feel doubt in his heart about leaving to truly find him self.

Tektrill also tries very hard to do the right thing but he finds himself lead astray in order to preserve the bonds between his family and friends and can often end up struggling between the two, hes struggles with making decisive decisions in times of panic when others may be affected, this ends up getting himself and others in trouble, He can also be conceited having a nothing can stop me attitude that can get in his way, he also likes to take a lead in things and usually finds it hard to take a back seat, but he can read a room well and can tell when to turn it down a notch.

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...

-He would leap into action immediately trying to shoot an arrow into the back of the thief and then rush to the aid of the injured person, he would then take them to somewhere safe and make sure someone see to their injuries, and then take off to try and recover the stolen goods and maybe recover a body.

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?

-Talking in the area trying to spark up conversation and make new allies in the foreign environment while also being weary of those around him as he knows that not everyone is to be trusted, he would likely get bored as well as he certainly seems to be impenitent and could probably end up getting him self in some kind of trouble.

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...

-politely deny and go on looking for more food trying to avoid unnecessary sickness

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…

-He would see them as no threat and try to focus on the enemies rushing to his position and make sure hes ready to take on multiple foes as it seems that they may be tricking him for a surprise ambush, once he had the chance he would then try and regroup with some friendly soldiers and avoid large groups of approaching enemies.

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 try to establish my self as a friend just looking to wait out a nasty storm and stock up on supply and try to let it be known i mean no harm and try to generally try to keep to myself and learn of these people to make it easier to survive in such an unfriendly environment.

The End! Once you have completed this application and post it here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/whitelist-applications.13/ (Whitelist Applications)

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.


There are only a few things to change for a final decision.

Make the following edits to your application:

1. OOC chat is not against the rules, I suggest you give them a careful read ;3 Your definition of powergaming is also not entirely accurate to a roleplay context.

2. Your character's biography makes no attempt to include server lore, please read the official server lore and include this in your characters bio.

3. Even though you answerd all five open ended questions your responses lack significant detail.

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.

Good luck!

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.


You will now be whitelisted on the server.

Your application is a little rough around the edges. I can see a few grammatical errors such as missed capital letters and full stops. Please keep in mind we expect you to use proper grammar when roleplaying on the server.

Your powergaming definition is also a little off, remember powergaming can also mean forcing your actions on another player in roleplay without giving them a chance to react.

In response to question one your character directly attacks a fleeing villain. If a player is fleeing from combat in combat roleplay on the server you would not be able to attack them with the intent to kill as at that point in combat they would have technically yielded, even if they have just committed an act of violence towards another. If they are not attacking you personally you require an Intrigue Application which can be made here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/intrigue-application.119/ (Intrigue Application)

You would however be able to tackle the player and interrogate them under Tier 0, Action 3 'Interrogation'.

If the player however was a known villain posted on the bounty board (found below) and your character recognizes them prior to the roleplay combat you would be justified in trying to kill them.

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/the-bounty-board.165/ (The Bounty Board!)

Your open ended questions are still a little short but I can see you have answered all five questions and made effort to make the alterations so I'm letting you in with caution, please remember Tale of Banners is a serious roleplay server which asks for a high standard of RP and character development. ;3

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.

Join our server on the 9th of May at 9PM BST for the official release!
