-Aaron was born in the oserian plains under a family of smiths, he was raised to be a good child but he didn't always feel a connection to the one, because of this he felt shame and is dishonest about his faith. He grew up with a loving family who thought him the way of metal working and because of this just like many oserian boys he grew a great appreciation for his craft, as a only child he felt lonely so he made many friends to help fill that void in his heart. In his later years he left the forge in exchange for adventure he spent his younger days running through the plains he grew up in discovering new places and people after some time he went back to the forge and picked up the hammer once more because he had a passion to create the very weapons he had seen the warriors in his child hood use, but not just any weapons, weapons of legend to be brandished by heroes and legends across the ages.

After many years of perfecting his craft he had grown to the level of a master craftsman, one day he decided he wanted to learn to hone his skill with the very tools he had forged with his own blood sweat and tears so Aaron went off and joined the oserian army as a forger, there he was able to keep perfecting his craft while still learning the way of the blade, due to rising conflicts with the korsians Aaron family was left shattered leaving him with not anger or fear but with the resolves to become a great warrior and bring peace to his homeland.after the great plague he was left conflicted knowing only one thing as true, that he must restore oseria and bring peace across the land.

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...

-so Aaron rushes towards the women using the skill he had learned in the army to try and stop the bleeding and save her afterwards he would write a report and hope the authorities could stop the man.

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?

-He spends his time looking for other smiths trying to pick up new tricks in the forge as well as try and sell his wares to the people through the area.

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...

-so he goes off trying to find food if he is unsuccessful he would accept knowing its not the best meal but at least he eating.

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…

-with the duty of being a soldier weighing on his shoulders and the stress of the approaching enemies eating away at him, in the heat of the moment he would strike them down only with thoughts of self preservation at hand.

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?

-he would plead with the northerners to stay only until the storm passes with the promise of trade.

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

Your definitions are a little short and remember powergaming in roleplay combat is different from the video game definition. You need to give players chance to react in roleplay combat for example.

Some of your answers to the open ended questions are quite short but you answered all five questions and I can see a good understanding of roleplay from your application.

Very high quality character biography and concept! Well done!

A very strong application! I am more than happy to accept this!

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.
