- Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean with culture, but I'm gonna try.
An enjoyer of good music, a nice conversation about weapons (specially axes), not much of a reader, not religious.

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)
(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: (Noble Houses)
- Darius was an orphan child raised in the streets, making what was necessary to survive, not an aggressive man, not a "looking for trouble" kind of man, but he knows one when he sees it, he does know how to defend himself, how to wield a dagger, an axe (likes this one), a sword (the basic). As Darius always liked the "Axe warriors", he ended trying being a lumberman as he never got an opportunity to be a soldier.
Hard worker, trying to make his living. Likes music, friends and ale!

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 to aid the wounded woman

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?

- look for some ale and a music circle

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...

- take the deal but try to hunt a small animal, if the night comes first, eat the deal.

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…

- knockout him

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?

- look for food and shelter, stay there until I can continue my journey.

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 roleplaying and power gaming definitions need a little bit more to them, for roleplaying write a bit more on how you fit into roles, for powergaming write up a little bit more on what goes on in a powergamers head as they powergame.

2. For culture, we are talking about where your character hails from, Oserian? Korsian? Drahl? or are you Northern.

4.Your biography does not use server lore. You will need two lore items, one which must not be a location. You can use things such as religion, flora, and fauna. You also need to work on the capitalization of letters for your Biography.

5.Your short questions lack length and interaction with the npc's that were presents. I would suggest writing up a converation with the people that are in the question in between your character and them. Try and remember, not everything goes your way in life, feel free to put some conflict in there.

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!
