Name:

Answer - Frank Terier


Age:

Answer - 19


Culture:

Answer - Oserian


Story & Biography:

Answer - Growing up without parents in the streets of Dunsgate, the homeless teenager spends most of his time scavenging for food, or begging for kura. Growing up with an absence of parents, he's often very trusting of everyone. Frank also is a very weak malnourished Oserian. Considering the Oserian culture, Frank would be considered a failure of the culture. He lives alone in alleyways, hungry waiting for the next day. It wasn't until he had aged 17 that he realized he had to become a true Oserian. Getting food as a child was of course easy. However, now he was being shoved away. With this, he realized he had to make some honest kura. So Frank proceeded to work for the tiniest bit of pay for a blacksmith. He would deliver notes, pick up materials, and deliver ordered weapons to customers. Better than ever, Frank had finally received a steady job and a nourished stomach. Frank idolizes the blacksmith, and he dreams of being able to save up enough kura in order to open up his own blacksmith.



Part 4 of 4
Open-ended questions
At least three must be answered. Delete the spares(if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each of the answered questions.

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...

Answer: Frank is too poor for heavy drinking.


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?

Answer: Frank would see the refugees sleep on the floor as a usual thing, before looking around the stalls for anything to eat. He'd then try to bargain and trade his wares he's traveled to sell. After very luckily being able to retrieve some cooked chicken, he'd devour it instantly. Every single juicy bite, gives Frank a very satisfied face. Eating is one of Franks favorite things, but he has trouble holding himself back and he tries to savor every single bite. After finishing his meal, Frank would toss the bone to the side, and proceed to look for a place of rest. Walking through the dimly torch-lit area he'd find a seat among other refugees. Frank would set himself to the ground, and he'd have a rest, while he waits for the opening of the gates.


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...

Answer: Frank is too poor for food.


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…

Answer: Frank would look to the soldier, and cry. He couldn't help, but cry along with him. He'd fall to his arse, and look around at all of the dead bodies. Frank would put his hands to his eyes and bawl them out. He'd continue to do this, before being shook and he'd look up to see a wounded soldier with a scared gaze. Frank would wipe the tears from his face and stand up. Frank and the soldier ran across the battlefield towards safety in allies, until large shadows drew themselves on the ground. Looking up, there was a hail of arrows headed straight for the force. He crouched quickly to pick up a shield, and raise it above his head. Two arrows cracked through his shield, before another pierced his foot. Screaming at the top of his lungs, he'd look up and see around 20 dead from the hail. Another would soon come, so he desperately continued to drag himself from the force.


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?

Answer: Frank would return to his old ways, and take a seat upon the streets. The breeze would blow, causing his hair to flail around and expose his pale skin. He'd then proceed to beg, and beg. After receiving nothing, he'd look for a nicer place to sit. He'd stumble across the streets, blowing into his cold hands. Eventually he'd stumble upon an alleyway, where he'd instantly be reminded of the life he's lived. The countless nights spent begging for food or kura. Wiping the feelings from his face, he'd take a place to the floor, with a back to the wall and close his eyes to enter a deep sleep.

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 powergaming definition covers one of two types of powergaming, please also define the second type of powergaming.

2. Please expand your Mary-Sue definition, perhaps giving a detailed example.

3. Expand your answers to the three roleplay scenarios you have chosen to answer. Mostly I'd like to see some more detail in the things you are already describing, take the chance to show off how well you can write.


4. Expand on your backstory, providing more detailed explanations of how your character became who he is. I'd suggest including some memorable events and/or describing what your character has been doing from the ages of 17 to 19, as he tries to escape poverty.

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!
