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?

  • Acting as an unscripted character in real time with other online participants

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

  • Describing your character or giving your character unrealistic attributes or powers that make it impossible for the character to fail at anything. Ex. In a roleplay battle, your opponent dodges everyone of your strikes but they hit you everytime they strike. The player you are battling is powergaming

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

  • Using terms that are recognized out of character for your character or gaining information out of character and allowing your character to acknowledge it even though they naturally wouldn't

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

  • I am assuming it is a character that is ‘power gaming’ and is too prim and perfect to fit into a realistic roleplay scene.

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

  • Ooc means out of character and it is used when players are talking to each other or about topics that don’t relate to roleplaying and should not be acknowledged by their character.
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.

Name:

  • Catori Bassard

Age:

  • 21

Culture:

  • Drahl Culture ( Shari subculture )

Can your character read and write?:

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!)

Catori was born in a small Shari Tribe to her Mother, Father, and older sister Mila. Mila had been a mischievous child. One day in the middle of the night, Mila and her close friend ( that the family didn’t know she had at the time ) snuck out. They ventured out miles away and began a Talhar Duel. Everyone in our tribe knew Mila had talent but that day talent just wasn’t enough. Her friend had shot her bow right in the center of Mila’s face when they were just aiming for the ground beneath each other. Once we found out she was missing, we looked for her day and night until we found her body three days later. Her ‘friend’ left as soon as Mila dropped to the ground. Mila’s death forever changed the way her family functioned. Catori's mother can barely look her in the eye without thinking of Mila and her father mines until his hands bleed. Catori expected a permanent cloud of sadness to rest over her but it never came. She never truly knew Mila because she was just a small child when the incident happened yet she feels guilty for not feeling anything. She fears if she acknowledged her trauma it would only bring her down so she bottles up almost every emotion possible except her ‘happiness’ to lighten the days ahead of her.
Catori dreams of owning a company that would allow her to travel the lands of Esna, forget about unstable emotions, and provide for her family at the same time. Yet, the old traditions of her tribe make her feel like an object rather than an opportunity for greatness. With no compassion or a set goal in place she might stay in the tribe for life. She has never been motivated and sees life as a chore rather than a gift. Nevertheless, recently things have been different. Catori has been waking up ready to feed the cattle and make food for her parents. Throughout the day Catori has noticed she has been extremely productive compared to the recent years. She doesn’t know when or how she will make her dream a reality, but she knows the power of Tsarra will show her path.

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 the women's side and ask if she is alright. I pull a few large leaves from a nearby tree, tie them together to make a wrap of sorts, then tie it around her torso to stop or slow down the bleeding. Once it is secured I call for help from someone else and quickly run out of the situation to hopefully allow someone more experienced help.
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 go to refugees who seem promising and advertise the wares I had originally bought for Kosarin city. I will most likely be turned down by many of them but I would have at least gotten one sale and be able to go home slightly accomplished

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...

  • Buy the sea-looking food and take the smallest bite, hoping that it is similar to the food in Shair tribes. If it tastes odd or unpleasant I give it to any poor children or animals around and settle for nothing because I have done so before.
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…

  • Ignore the dying soldier and continue onto the enemy forces approaching. I know I could not be of any help and the enemy soldiers have most likely killed many of my own already. So the best bet is to let a real fighter envege our fallen people while I use my strength for a different obstacle.

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 would ask at least one stranger who seems friendly, if there is any, and if I am turned down I would continue walking. At some point I would just give up and let fate decide if I ever return to humanity or the wind of the north drags my lifeless body away.
