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...

- Go over to the figure, getting onto my knees and ripping off a piece of clothing, wrapping the wound up, wiping my face with the back of my hand. I’d ask about the hospitals in this area, as I’m not very familiar with it. Assuming they answered, I’d carry them to on of the hospitals, after some treatment (hopefully) I’d explain the situation to a staff member and asking to call the authorities.

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?

- Walking around, observing everything and everyone. Minding my own things, as people usually do not have morals.. walking in front of most of the stalls, looking at the goods and if I could do some business as it’d probably be a long wait. With a chance to get robbed, so I seek to get rid of my items and make a small fortune before something unfortunate could happene.

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...

- Thank them for the offer, but respectfully decline, who knows who and what you can trust. I’d go to the outskirts of civilization and make a small primitive animal trap. As I have some experience with the wilderness.. hoping to catch something, in the meanwhile making a fire under the leaves of a nice tree.

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…

- Stand in question, why do the wars still continue after witnessing the horror of the people? But, I’d come to my senses.. this man will be left to die, might aswell spare them the suffering. Giving them a moment to come to terms and pray to any god they might have, say their final goodbyes, write a note or whatever. As I raise my weapon, striking them in the neck for a humane kill.

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?
- Of course, as any person looking to live.. I’d approach someone, asking for a place to go, something I could do to get some supplies/resources, If they just shrugged me off, well, I’d go out to the outskirts.. there’s bound to be some small huts or houses right? Well, granted I find one.. probably steal something to sustain myself.

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. Your powergaming definition is lacking in the multiplayer roleplay context. Expand on it in this way.

2. Your mary sue definition doesn't cover the social aspects of a mary sue character.

3. Your skin has white hair for a 15 year old character. This is highly unrealistic, and all skins must maintain basic realism rules. White hair goes on older persons. The specific clothing for the character has been used before, and is fine, but does evoke a more 1800's than medieval theme.

4. You have nothing filled in for your character biography. This combines with the character name(I know its from FMA, but thats fine). The name is an Oserian, and I'd recommend you read up on the server lore more before you finish writing the biography.

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!
