-Using unrealistic forces to gain an advantage, I'm very bad at explaining things so sorry if my wording makes this sound strange or something.

Section 3/4 - Character Creation

Here you will create an example character that could exist in the server’s history and lore.

Provide us with an in-game screenshot of your character’s skin.

-Sorry my screenshots weren't working so I needed to use gyazo in the player inventory to get a screenshot.


-Vernik Syren





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: (Intrigue Application)

-Vernik is a Northerner from a small clan in the North. He lived in a small house and was a part of a small clan. He was expected to help hunt food for the clan with his brother Lars. He and his brother would often compete with each other by seeing who could get their prey the fastest, the loser needing to stand outside in the cold for half an hour before being allowed back inside. He was close with his family and did the best he could to help keep everyone alive. He occasionally helped guard his clans' village and food supply, making sure intruding clans didn't steal their resources. He did what others asked of him as long as the requests were reasonable, and hoped he could help out the clan as much as possible. Vernik and Lars both ended up taming a few wolves to help them hunt for food. Vernik had tamed 2 dogs, while Lars had tamed only 1. The two brothers made money by selling anything that remained of the animal corpses once they took what they needed. At one point during a hunting trip, Lars got ambushed by members of another clan and lost his arm. Vernik got lucky as he had went after a deer he saw and didn't get caught up in the fight. After Vernik had learned about Lars's missing arm, he started to try and figure out which clan had ambushed his brother, but gave up after a few days knowing that one man alone could not defeat an entire clan, and he knew no one would try helping him fight the clan either.((I would right more but I can't think and I'm half asleep.))

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 would probably be unable to react as I would be almost blackout drunk. If I could react, I would most likely try to find another location to sit and rest in to avoid being robbed or harmed.

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 would attempt to sell my wares to the refugees while I wait to enter. If I sell the wares then while I wait I'd still be fulfilling the purpose of which I wanted to enter the city for.

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...

-I would likely decline as it could possibly be poisonous to people who aren't from around the area. Why would I accept food from a mysterious stranger?

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…

-There is no honor in killing a man who is not willing to defend himself. I would tell the soldier to run before any of my allies would arrive and finish him off.

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 would attempt to help one of the Northerners and receive resources in return while hoping I don't get killed by one of them.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

Don't take this to heart! This is a good application!

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

Make the following edits to your application:

1. I accept that you find it difficult to explain certain aspects of roleplay but I need a stronger definition of powergaming before I can accept this application. Your description of a 'Mary Sue' character is also very vague.

2. You may have provided answers to all five questions but your answers are quite short and lack detail. It is hard to grasp why and how your character would do these things on the server. Instead you may want to focus on doing three more detailed answers instead of all five. Use the questions and answers section to show us how your character would interact with others and why they would be justified in acting this way based on their personality.

This is a solid application with only a few minor issues! If you fix these I would be happy to accept you! ^^

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible, I will be around all tonight checking the applications so you should have a quick response.

Good luck!
