  • Still working on making this, essentially its a man cloaked in furs with half his face burned off.

Name:

- Ulric Of Bildgewater

Age: 38

-

Culture:

  • Northerner

Can your character read and write?:

- Yes

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!)

The icy wind slashed his face and the frozen rain threw itself upon his head. He pushed on through the frozen wastes, cloaked in various dirty furs and cloths; every step felt heavier as the wind began to crescendo into a hellish fury. The light… in the distance it shown brightly against the frozen and barren wastes, the promise of warmth and comfort, the promise of survival shot up its fiery rays ahead of him. One step after another, his mind blanking out and giving up as his legs continued to move. He had not remembered reaching the camp of the Kings Gaurd, nor had he remembered when they gave him as much aid as they could before throwing him in a tight cage close to the fire. The next thing he had remembered was waking up shivering in the back of a prison cart, he had remembered the sound of yell, then a force that rocked the cart, turning it onto its side and shattering his ribs. He had seen the men who had thrown the cart to its side, even with their hoods he knew who this men were; they were bounty hunters looking for the head of the bandit lord Ulric, and by chance these bounty hunters had found their mark. Ulric kicked against the half broken bars of his cage, his body screaming in pain and beginning him to lay down. As the bounty hunters plunged cold daggers into the necks of the Kings Gaurd, Ulric escaped into the icy cold darkness. He remembered sitting by the fire in the abandoned cabin, terrified to feel his face. He stomached this fear and rubbed his hands, he could not find his skin, only a fiery pain where half of his face once was. He could never look himself in the mirror again, and he knew not how he would ever start again; kicked back down to the very bottom.

Flaws- Drinks dubious amounts of alcohol when the pain becomes too much. Ulric does not forgive easily, and trusts little in others for good reason; fearing the wrath of vengeful bounty hunters. His lack of self control and anger can sometimes cloud his judgement.

(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)

-

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...

Mind my own business and walk off into the night, I don't want to draw any unneeded attention to myself even at the cost of another's life. Someone else will most likely notice her anyway… If there's something I live by, its dont get involved in something you dont need to be involved in.

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 sell some of my ill gotten wares to the people I can sell to, and ask around for opportunities. Desperate refugees make great criminals, and I can use them well.

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 the damn meal, I’ve eaten worse to survive worse conditions.

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…

  • Plunge my sword into the wounded soldier, I have a job to do and I’ve no time for mercy; and won't take the risk of having a dagger plunged into my back. After all I would have expected him to do the same thing.

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?

  • If they do not accept a fellow northerner then I will be forced to take drastic measures, my survival depends on it and I will do anything to keep my life; even if that means breaking a window or two.

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. We would like you to update the application with your skin once your done with it, feel free to message me or any other admins if you have trouble with that and send us your skin to get the OK

2. Your open ended questions does lack dialogue, I love the description for your actions but they need a bit more flesh to them. Try to write in some rp between Ulric and other npc's for the open ended.

3. Your character biography fails to use any server lore. We do require the use of at least two items of server lore. One can be a location, and one must be something else such as religion or animals. You can find the lore here. https://taleofbanners.com/forum/categories/official-canon-lore.158/ (Official Canon Lore)

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!

He could never look himself in the mirror again, and he knew not how he would ever start again; kicked back down to the very bottom.

Ulric grew up on the streets of Valdarr, an orphan of the great death. He quickly fell in with a group of his peers, when they were young they took to begging and stealing to get by in the city. Time went by and his criminal activities became more and more pronounced, and the more he did the more he felt his old self slipping away; these days he not remember his mother's face, and he did not think of it as to avoid the pain. The great death had taken all away from this boy, his mother had practically begged a passing merchant to take her child before the clean up crew came to burn the village, and everyone in it; in a desperate attempt to stop the plague.

Flaws- Drinks dubious amounts of alcohol when the pain becomes too much. Ulric does not forgive easily, and trusts little in others for good reason; fearing the wrath of vengeful bounty hunters. His lack of self control and anger can sometimes cloud his judgement.

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...

Ulric sees the women in the alley and pauses, he feels sorrow for the women, but he cant risk bringing the catchpole on top of him, so he walks off into the night...

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?

Ulric wanders around the mishapen tents, looking for the desprate and hungry alike, eventually he comes upon a particularly large man, the torn rags on his back reveal his troubles. Ulric slowly sits down next to the man.

Ulric - So when do you think they will open the gates?

Man -Its been weeks so far, and no news yet; I’m not sure how long me and my family will survive, my child cries and I can see her ribs under her pale skin…

Ulric - I… I am sorry my friend, these are terrible and unfair times we live in. You know, I would like to help you, but… no I shouldnt.

Man- What, Ill do anything for some food?

Ulric- Well I may know an opportunity, but you didn't hear this from me….

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...

Crone - Coommmeee in sweetie
The crone is dirty, and she licks and her sausage shaped fingers.
Ulric gingerly enters the hags domain, careful of the strange woman. He’s starving though, and is not sure he can turn down the opportunity of a good meal, no matter how strange the cook may be.
Ulric - Ill take the stew…
Crone- The stew is… unpleasent to those not used to the taste, are you su…
Ulric plops down a bag of coins onto the counter, they jingle as they hit the wood.
Crone - A bowl of stew coming up sweetie!
When the stew arrives ulrics slurps it down without looking, the texture and taste makes him gag, but his body does not control him.

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…

  • Ulric walks to the poor soldier, and plunges a dagger into his pale neck as he gurgles a final tone. He wish it were not like this, but he can only assume the boy would have done the same, the wounds he had were beyond repair regardless, he could rest now.. No more fear and pain

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?

  • After hours of searching ulric comes up empty handed for a place to stay, and so he creeps up to an abandoned looking shed, and throws his weight upon it. Breaking down the door and staying in for the night.
