Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions

Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).


What do you define as roleplaying?

-Pretending to be a character, kind of acting but you decide your text for your character

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-When someone breaks the limits in rp of what their character could do, example: "the small kid swung his sword and with one blow chopped of the big man's head" this is an unlikely situation plus, the grown man is forced into this action, the kid would have to say he was "trying"

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-Using OOC information in rp, your character can only know things your character knows, example: "your friend asked you on discord to come help him becaus he suddenly finds himself in a fight, your character wouldn't know this and come all across the land to him

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-A mary sue character is a character without any personal flaws, mostly social, example "the man is an introvert or he thinks he is better than everyone" that kind of of personal traits are necessary to avoid a mary sue character.

What does the abbreviation ‘OOC’ mean & when should this be used?

-Out of character, discussing things out of character about roleplay, or recent events, example: "Hey, did your character know this and this about my character?" Or something like that
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.

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)
(You are also able to apply with a noble but keep in mind you cannot play a noble character on the server unless you join an accepted noble house or apply for one.) Found here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/noble-houses.142/ (Noble Houses)

River and his family lived poor but happy on a farm specialised in crops and animals in north Oserian, they are considered peasents. His mother not of high heritage, Jelena, no surname, just like River, married to his father Nathan, who was of unknown origin, all they know was that he left his current position for Jelena, River also had a little brother named Julian, they had fights, but wich siblings didn't? He always protected him from bullies, he was also quite shy. River has always been hard worker ,so was his brother, just like most Oserians. He was always quit interested in medicine so has picked up a about that as well. Weirdly enough he always used to go to the south of Oserian looking for South-Oserian Pit-vipers, he knew quite good how to handle them because of his work on the farm.

One day at River's age of 13 he went chopping wood, but when he returned he saw his house in flames and his father taken away by guards, they were calling him a traitor, his father was screaming, apparentally his brother and mother were still in the house. Once the soldiers and his father left he quikly put out the fire with water from the river together with the other townsfolk, but it was too late, ever since he has been roaming around the land meaningless filled with despair and no hope left searching for meaning in his pathetic life. Due to this life of travel he has picked up on some common jobs like construction.
He is a shy man with a high pitched voice and quite the introvert, but still kind.

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...

-Run towards the woman to try and help her as much as i can with my little medical abilities i learned from getting wounds on the farm, after that i will call for help and try to find someone or somewere with better medical training or care.
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 quietly sit there waiting, not trying to start a conversation or meddle with anyones bussines, i'm way too shy for that.

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...

-Eat it anyway try not to complain, i'm scared they otherwise might get mad at me.

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…

-Try to heal the wounded soldier, because if i were to find myself in a warzone, probably not, i would be there as a healer not choosing any sides. if i where to be on any side i'd just walk past as he seemed no threat in his condition.

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 buy resources and find a place to stay for the night without trying to talk to people, i will be gone the next day anyway.

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

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. The attachment containing your skin does not work, consider using a website such as Imgur (https://imgur.com/ (Imgur: The magic of the Internet)) or formatting the attachment properly so it can be seen.

2. Your bio is far too short and contains no server lore at all, please extend it to include more information about your character personality and make sure it contains some of the servers lore and history. Specifically Oserian if your characters is Oserian born.

3. Your application has several grammar errors such as missing capital letters and spaces, keep in mind players may hold your English to a high standard when roleplaying on the server.

4. Your answers to section 4 are acceptable but very short, think about extending them and adding a little bit more detail.

I can see your heart is in the right place but your application is a little lacking, show us that you are able to roleplay to a high standard and I will have no issue accepting 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.
Good luck!
