Whitelist Application Format


Copy and paste this application into a new post on the ‘Whitelist Applications’ section of the forums, place your answers next to the ( - ).

The application is made up of four sections and you must answer everything for it to be accepted.


The Tale of Banners Whitelist Application:

Section 1/4 - Out of Character Information

-yes

(Please give examples, no experience is acceptable)

Additional Information: (If any)

-nope
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?

-Thats hard to answer but I would say it's like acting, you get into the perspective of your character and really feel what they feel.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-Using a multitude of different characters that have no relation by one's self to achieve the same goal. another to defining it is in combat, the aim of maximizing the power the player wield in the world

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-taking knowledge your character doesn't know and using it to your advantage

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-A Mary Sue is a generic name for any fictional character who is so competent or perfect that this appears absurd, even in the context of the fictional setting. Mary Sues are often an author's idealized or flawless self insertion. They may excel at tasks that should not be possible for them, or they may upstage the protagonist of a fictional setting, such as by saving them. They may disregard previously established aspects of the fiction such as characterization and natural laws. (this is the most i can give you, I honestly haven't heard of this term before today so sorry for the lack of information. Also could not find anything for interactions but i would guess it would be to perfect of answers and would be exactly what you want to hear)

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

-Out of Character, it should only be used why there is one person present or if you absolutely need to ask a question that you are confused about
Section 3/4 - Character Creation
Here you will create an example character that could exist in the server’s history and lore.

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)

-Yuki was born a child of the Chieftains of the Northerners of Flintswood. He was raised to be a strong hunter and a proud warrior, including being raised to be very devoted to his Gods. He grew up wanting to travel across the land of Esna. By the time he was 14 he was living a decent life with his family, he was also sent into the military as a Warrior later to become a Berserker as he turns 20. Ever since he was little he was alway interested in the Way of the Five and especially Feynir, as he loved his family deerly and would die for them. He is very charismatic. He's always trying to make someone laugh. He not only is kind but smart too. And lastly he is very caution and on his feet 24/7

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...

-

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?

-Iwould first walk around looking at the different shops looking for something to read or look at. I would then not find anything worth interest and continue walking around. I would then go up to a shopkeeper and ask why so many people are commingin at this time. After getting my answer I would go to sit and wait out the time thinking about the money I'm about to make without making eye contact with anyone for any reason.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crook Mire 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...

-Slightly ill mannered, turn her offer down As i would not like to eat any suspicious food from someone i don't know. I would go out and look for some wild berries or some animal to hunt and have that for dinner. After heading back to camp i would make sure i wasn't followed as i would not want to deal with anyone during my meal
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…

-

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 walk up to a house and after they answered the door I would say that I too was a northerner from flintswood. I would ask for a place to rest for the night and be gone by sunrise for i an in a dire situation, as there is a snow storm. I would also promise to bring them extra food after the storm.

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. Your power gaming definition makes a good point about multiple characters but lacks in other areas, please expand upon it to apply more generally and to apply in a multiplayer RP scenario, such as combat. If you need assistance feel free to ask.

2. Your mary-sue definition implies that only female characters could be mary-sues. While technically the term does come from female characters, your definition should be expanded. In addition, it also doesn't touch on the social aspects of how a mary-sue interacts with people.

You had a short bio that made good use of the lore and your questions weren't bad at all, these are only minor definition changes and you should be on and running in no time.

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!

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

The only thing left to note is that powergaming can also be forcing an outcome in an rp situation such as combat.

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.
