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?

-Role playing is the he act of playing out a role of a character that may or not of existed in a storyline where you may interact with various types of settings.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-Powergaming is the act of taking advantage of something in the game to gain an unfair advantage that can lead to others having a bad experience.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-It is when you use knowledge you possess in real life to effect your character in roleplay.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-A character which is overpowered for no good reason. For example, think of Rey from the Star Wars the force awakening and how she went from thinking the force was just a myth to being able to throw off an experienced force user without training for no reason besides that how the director wanted it to be. Also it is character allowed to do things that they logically should not be able to do. For example, a character gets away with burning a town down with no reason given to explain why they were allowed to get away with it.

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

-OOC is when you talk or behave in a manner that is out of character. It should be used when looking for help that does not revolve around roleplaying, such as asking a moderator for help with something.

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/noble-houses.142/ (Noble Houses)
- Kyle is a simple Oserian farmer that had enough interest into reading and writing to learn, but would be hard pressed to write a full essay or to write full novel. He grew up in relatively small Oserian village in the south where the few villages around were many miles away due to how sparsely populated it is and had hit puberty quite early and so developed a beard early on. His parents and family have unfortunately passed away due to a particularly bad outbreak of yellow fever, but Kyle had been lucky enough to have survived though alone he may be. He because of this tends to have a good work ethic and positive attitude due to being shaped fiery forge of hardship that some unfortunately have to endure. During his upbringing in the little village he grew up in, he learned how to farm wheat and some other variety's of crops. He doesn't have any still living friends from his home because they had also passed away from the fever. From what he knows yellow fever is different from the plague that many of what's left of the South Oserians live in fear of are different, but as he knows it is still dangerous.


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...

-Kyle goes to help the woman injured on the ground and let the thief get away. This is because Kyle is not skilled in the art of fighting, having not been taught much, but most basic of basic by his father years ago. Plus the woman if critically injured in not helped could die and that would leave him feeling guilty for the rest of his life. Besides, there would likely be town guards nearby that could apprehend the thief.

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?

-Kyle would wait patiently to be let passed the gate. This is because if he doesn't wait there and goes to explore the refugee camp he may very well miss his chance to be let through into the city. Also he would feel uncomfortable there seeing how he isn't a refugee and so should be taking up refugee areas.

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...

-Kyle eat it and thanks the old woman for the food. Even if it's taste is bad, it's not like he has another choice of what to eat so he makes do with what he's got. Also, he is in a situation where the locals not viewing him negatively would help his chances of survival.

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 pity, Kyle would give a quick killing blow to the enemy soldiers neck to end his sufferings and let him join his friend in the afterlife. This is because Kyle is not a bad person and does not enjoy the sight of another person in suffering, but he is also practical and knows he has to fight and keeping the soldier alive may come back to haught him by the man going head and rejoining the fight later on to avenge his fallen friend.

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?

-Kyle would carefully make his presence know and ask for permission to stay for just long enough for the snowstorm to blow over. If they said yes he would make sure not to complain with what ever temporary living arrangements they give him for during his stay. This behavior is because the village does not need to help him and could if it wanted to even kill him, if he became a problem.

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 mary sue description has the right idea, but if you can describe it a bit more in detail.

2.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.

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!

I made the changes, but I'm not sure what you mean flora, and fauna as a lore item.
