Full Name: Durrak Uskrad

Current Age: 84

Sub-race (if any): Cave dwarf.

Clan (if any): none

Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):[/b]
As a child Durrak was always busy making little wooden swords made from sticks he found lying around and then use it to play with it and act like he was a warrior. While his dad played the bad villain he would play the hero and defeat the villain. This was what Durrak did most of the time, if his dad was home of course, but if he was alone he would usually play with his brother Fargrim and played a made an made-up story every time they would play together. While they were doing this their mom just watched and laughed at the things the little dwarfs did and at the great imagination they had, and after a while she would say: ‘’Come inside boys, I baked some cake and have a nice drink for you both.’’ and the boys would drop their wooden swords on the ground and run inside to enjoy the fresh baked caked their mother made for them. When Durrak was older he started working at a blacksmith in his hometown and learned a little bit about minerals and ore’s. When he was old enough, he and his brother went on an adventure to live a new life in Anthos.
Durrak and his brother came with the boat to Anthos. When he arrived he found an pamphlet that said something about a dwarven clan. After that he joined a dwarven clan where he got lots of training in the art of combat. He got very skilled after years of hard training and learned a lot about the use of lances. He trained hard every day and learned to master the lance with training every day from sunrise to sunset. He read books and practiced with the lance with the help of his training partner and his leader who learned him a lot about the lance and its history. Because the leader’s favorite weapon of choice was the lance as well. The leader always told him: ‘’One day you will be the best soldier we have ever trained.’’ and this gave Durrak lots of hope and that’s what kept him going. After years of hard training, reading and lots of cuts and bruises from the fighting, of which he still got a scar on the left side of his chest, he finally learned how to master the lance. He was a great soldier in the dwarven clan that knew how to use the lance instead of his companions who used battle axes. Over the years he got in higher ranks because he was so skilled and even learned his friends some of his best tricks. He started as an unskilled dwarf with almost no knowledge about the art of combat and grew to a great soldier in the dwarven clan he had joined. Later on he found out that the general was planning to use the clan to go on a suicide mission. With around 500 men they wanted to try and take over the home of the humans: The holy Oren Empire. He warned his friends about this plan and they got away safely at night without anyone noticing them. So he needed to go somewhere else and went on an adventure to search his brother to join the caravan his brother was in. But finding his brother wasn’t easy because he travelled around the world with his caravan. After Durrak and his friends split up because they went home, he needed a place to stay for a while and to write a letter to his brother Fargrim. So he found a little inn where he could stay and started writing the letter which said:
’’ Dear Fargrim,
Not too long ago I found out the army I join had evil plans on taking over The Holy Oren Empire so I left and got a nice place to stay for a while. But what I wanted to ask is if I could join the caravan you’re in, and be the guard of the caravan. I would like to hear much about your adventures and would love it to meet you soon my brother. I hope I will hear from you soon.
Greetings,
Durrak’’
And he posted it. After a while he received a letter from his brother which said:
‘’ Dear Durrak,
My dear brother I haven’t spoken to you in years! I would love you to join our caravan and be the guard of it, we need one of them. I have travelled much and would love to meet you soon. So if you travel to the city of Salvus we can meet up there. And then you could join our caravan as our guard. I will tell you everything of my adventures when we meet up. I will see you soon my brother.
Regards,
Fargrim’’
So Durrak went to the city of Salvus where he met his brother’s after many years and met the friends of his brother. As his brother said he could join the caravan and be the guard of it. And then he went on an adventure with his brother and his new made friends.
Ambitions for the Future: Durrak joined the caravan where his brother is in and is the guard of it and helps the caravan get safely around the world and defend the caravan and its members with his life. Help the caravan get big and popular amongst the people. And improving his skills in how to use the lance and learning how to use the crossbow is what he wants to learn.

Personality: Durrak is a dwarf who is nice to all people that are nice to him, but if they are not he will be an intimidating dwarf that you need to look out for. Durrak protects the innocent and the weaker people and is loyal to all of his best friends. But he is inpatient, sometimes stubborn and he doesn’t trust many people.

Skills: he knows a bit about ores and minerals because he worked in an blacksmith. And he knows how to use the lance pretty good, but he might need some improvement here and there.

Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin): Durrak has dark orange hair and has the same eyes as his brother.file:///C:/Users/GEBRUI~1/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image002.jpgfile:///C:/Users/gebruiker/Desktop/d9tPvah.png Posted Image

Open-Response-Questions
Each question in this section must be answered with a minimum of one paragraph which must describe the event in full. Please be as descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.
____

1. Whilst mining deep in the undergrounds of Kalos you see a large deposit of diamond ore at the other side of the ravine you are on. There is a very thin rock bridge that looks precariously unstable, but it is the only way to access the deposit. What do you do?

Answer: Durrak throws some stone’s at the bridge and poke it with a pickaxe to see if it holds. The bridge holds. Durrak safely places a foot on the bridge. A bit crumbles off in the middle of the bridge. Durrak takes away his foot and doesn’t bother getting the diamonds anymore because he doesn’t want to risk his life.

2. You are sitting in the local tavern with a large pint of ale in your hand - sitting nearby you is a rather young dwarf whom is clearly going through a bad time. He is crying to himself, and clutching a small wooden hammer toy. In the other corner of the room two shady dwarves are sitting whispering to each other and pointing occasionally at the dwarf. They stand up, one with a small dagger in his hand and begin to approach the young dwarf. What do you do?

Answer: As the two Dwarves approach, Durrak places his hand on the lance that's leaning on the table. "What 'yer gettin' in yer 'ead ther', ma'e?", he says to one of the Dwarves. The child looks hopefully at Durrak as he stands next to him. "Git out of me way, ye fool. It ain't ye business!'', one of the Dwarves says. Durrak takes his lance and holds it right before the Dwarves's faces, the blade glittering in the light. ''Move 'long now, lil' one. 'Urry.'', hey says to the child and he hurries away. As one of the Dwarves tries to move forward, Durrak places the grip of his lance before him, looking him in the eyes ''Yer' not gittin' trough 'ere, ye bugga!’’ The Dwarves nod to each other, knowing it will be a lost fight, and move on with their business.

3. Whilst wandering through the Dwarven Caverns you hear a voice call out to you; “Oi, ye’! C’mere n’ get ye’rself an ale!”. You spin on your heel and see a heavily bearded bar-owner looking at you - a huge grin on his face, and a mug of ale in his hand. How do you react?

Answer: Durrak looks at the dwarf with a confused look. ’’ What’s in tha’ ale of yers.’’. The barman became a bit nervous. ‘’Uhh… erm just a goo’ ol’ale brewed by me father.’’. Durrak came closer to take a look at it and sniffed the ale. ‘’ I don’ trus’ this ale of yers’’. The barman stutters. ‘’ Bu’ bu’ its realle’ goo’. Why don’ ye trust me?’’. Durrak looks at him. ‘’ Because I ‘ave more imporan’ things to do than listen to a bragger like ye’’. The barman opens his mouth wide. ‘’ Goo’ day sir’’. Durrak turns around and walks away.

[b]Out-Of-Character Information[/b]
Please fill out the following questions as accurately as possible, and ensure the essential details are accurate.

Minecraft Account Name: SirSnowMan
How old are you?: 15
Time-Zone: Eastern (USA)
Have you read, understood and agreed to the rules?: Yes
What previous experience have you had in role-playing?: Not a ton. I have played RPGs and was on a rping forum before. I understand how to do it, and I'm mature.
How did you hear about the the Lord of the Craft?: Planetminecraft
Link any applications that you have previously made for the server:http://www.lordofthe...an/#entry712509 http://www.lordofthe...an/#entry712509
Have you posted this application on the Minecraft Forum? If not, then please do so (link above): This is it :D
Have you read the Human lore, and shall you ensure you make use of it and follow it in your biography?: Yes

Definitions
In your own words define the following terms. Do not take any definitions from elsewhere!:

Role-playing: When two or more people interact, acting as something they are not, or someone they are not. And example would be me pretending to be a king, giving order to people on a server, and than someone else on the server doing what the character would do to the given situation.
Meta-gaming: The use of out-game knowledge or resources to affect someone's in game decisions. For example, say I'm on LORD OF THE CRAFT, and I come across a monster MY character has never seen before. I then use knowledge from out-game, and attack using the monsters weaknesses. Even though my character has never seen the monster, I attack using the weaknesses. This is meta-gaming, and it can destroy role-play.
Power-emoting: Also known as god-emoting, is when one player focuses a result on another player, that does not let the other player react or have a chance to do something to stop the affect being focus on him/her. A example would be "Player 1, being huge, grabs Player 2 and chucks him across the room, making him not a threat anymore." <--- That is power-emoting. But instead of doing that, the person can do; "Player 1 jumps forward, trying to get a hold on Player 2". This gives player 2 a chance to react.

In-Character Information:
Complete the following biography on your character:

Full Name: Relk Darlek
Current Age: 21
Sub-race (if any): Northerner ( Basically just a normal human)
Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):

       Relk grew up like most children. He lived in Ager where him and his family raised and sold cattle. His father was a hard working cattle raiser named Joshkerez, and his mom was a kind women named Jazmeenez. They lived almost a normal, boring life-style. Relk was often bored and went to find make believe adventures, often getting him into troubled. Some of his favorite day-to-day things was to egg guards and climb trees.

       When he was old enough his father arranged for him to be a apprentice/helper to a local hunter named Lucler. They would go into the woods where Relk learned how to hunt, sneak, and use a bow. He became quite acquainted with using the bow, and still today it is his favorite weapon/tool. But the life as a hunter was not for him. He decided that he has seen all there is to see in Ager, and will go to Arethor to find a job. He hopes to join the Military/Guard and protect his fellow citizens.
Ambitions for the Future:[/b] To become either a guard, scout, join the Rangers of the Forest, become a Emerald Knight, , or a assassin (I know I will have to make a villain application, so it will be a long time until this happens, seeing the rules forbid new members to have a villain role.)
Personality:[/b] Relk is mostly quiet. He likes to travel and keep to himself. He is nice to fellow humans, and is loyal. He can be rude at times, and will do what he thinks is right.
Skills:[/b]  His years of hunting have made him good with archery and sneaking. He is also a good thinker, being able to give advice and help when its needed.
Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin):[/b]  Depending on what my character actually becomes, I will change my skin to meet the job. Posted Image
Any other details you wish to share about your character:[/b] No. I fixed the definitions and the bio like I was told. I also said how he learned his skills(hunting), and I expand the last answer like I was told.

[b]1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperors palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?[/b]

Answer:
Relk studies the man. He looks at him for another minute, than deciding he is surely up to no good. Relk fallows the strange man, bored and curious. The man is starting to mumble and almost skip. Than he notices that the man is going towards the human capital. "Out-oh" relk says in a whisper. But whats that? The man reaches for a dagger as he comes towards a official who is talking to a shopkeeper. "Guards!" relk yells. A few guards turn towards Relk with puzzled looks. He points to the strange man who is getting closer. The man grabs the official while cussing. Relk runs as fast as he can, sloppily throwing himself onto the cloaked figure. Three guards come over, lifting Relk up and grab the cloaked figure.



[b]2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?[/b]

Answer:

" Oh god." says Relk, seeing the situation. "If I had a bow I could pick them off...But I don't." He mumbles. But he must help the poor old man. He runs up, about thirty feet away and shouts; "Looking for money, eh? Why don't you try me?" he shouts, throwing a small stone at one of the bandits. Obviously they are not to happy about the stone and the taunts. They begin to take chase after Relk, Having the thirty feet advantage, Relk hauls it like no tomorrow. Eventually, he gets far enough away, and loses sight of the bandits. "Well, I helped that guy, for now."


[b]3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).[/b]

Answer:

Relk walks around the human capital, looking around shops and stalls. "No emeralds...?" Relk says with dis-taste as he keeps searching. "Emeralds? Take a look over here." says an old merchant in a colorful stall. "Finally..." says Relk as he comes up to the stall. "Yah, I got plenty of emeralds here. Make me a offer, I have no set price." says the merchant. Relk thinks for a few moments. "How about, say 350 Minas for that big one?" Relks says, picking up one of the large gems. "No way! A fine emerald like that is at least 450 Minas!" says the merchant, almost getting upset. "Your crazy." Relk says to the man. The merchant snorts "How about you quit your crying and make me another deal". "Fine, I'll meet you in the middle at 400 Minas, and thats as high as I go." Relk says leaning forward putting both hands on the table. The merchant stairs at the emerald for a couple moments. "Deal..." he says. "Here." Relk says, putting a sack of Minas on the table. The merchant than counts every single Minas until he begins to nod. "Alright, here." the merchant hands over the emerald. "Well, pleasure doing business with you." Relk says. "Yah, you too." the merchants says. Relk, happy that he bought the emerald, walks away.

Arthur grew up with his younger sister Melany (2 years younger) and his older brother Jack ( 3 years older)  in a town called Aegis. Arthur’s mother and father we very much in love and cared for the children as best they could. When Arthur turned 5 his father had decided for the good of the village that he would create a little task force to protect the village from bandits and small groups of raiders. All was well, or so it seemed. Only 1 month after his father started the task force they were thrown into action. A  huge group of about 40 bandits road into town seeking only destruction and death. The task force didn’t stand a chance. It was a slaughter! Arthur, his sister, brother and mother managed to escape but his father was killed protecting the village.

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?

Answer:
I quickly access the situation figuring out how long it would take to get the guards or if I yelled that it might alert the “Dark-Clothed person”. I figure out where the guards are located and decide to run over to them. I alert them of the man who entered the palace and ask if I may be of assistance. While the guards go one way I go the other and start looking for the Dark-Clothed person. After a couple minutes In the palace I see the dark clothed person. Now I am sure he I an assassin because he has dagger in hand  and is about to enter the Emperors chambers. I yell For the guards and draw my sword, at that moment the assassin spins around and trys to attack me. I wound him but not kill him so that the guards may deal with him. After he has been taken away by the palace guards I leave and re embark on my quest.


2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?

Answer:
I stare and access the situation. I sneak up behind the bandits and say. “ Hello, how are you fine gentleman doing today”. The bandits turn around and draw there sowrds. I saw “ Well I was just trying to have a intelligent conversation but if that’s the way you want it, I will comply”. I draw my sword. The first bandit swings at me screaming. I block with my sword and hit him in the face with the bunt of my sword knocking him to the ground. The second man takes a swing at me, I perry his sword and slice him across the chest killing him. All of a sudden the sword from the first bandit slices my arm from behind, in pain I swing around and slice open his neck. I turn to the old man and ask if he is all right. He replys “ Im fine now that you’re here, thank you young sir, I don’t know what I would have done without you”. I ask him for a needle and thread so I can sew up my wound. After mending my arm I grab my gear and hit the road again as I travel on my quest.


3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).

Answer:
I walk up to the stand, look around at the goods and I catch my eye on a Iron longsword with a polished rock at the end of the handle. I check my pocket …… I only have 100 minas and i need to eat tonight. Maybe I can strike a deal. I say to the owner “ How much for the sword’ He said “ which one?”   I paint to the sword. The stall owner says “Ahh, I see you have caught your eye on the sword of power” I reply “ The sword of power? Why is it called this” The stall owner says “ I have no idea but the name helps it sell” I frown. ‘How much” I ask again. “ 110 minas” he says, I reply “HA, 110 minas for a fake named sword, how can you expect so much, based on your stalk and the time of day I say you maybe have sold only 1 or 2 items today yet you still ask for 110 minas”. “ well, I guess maybe 100 minas” “Good day, I will try my luck somwere else” As I walk away he shouts “ Fine 81 minas but that’s my final offer” I turn around with a grin on my face and walk back to the stall and say “ Well that’s more reasonable, ill take it. I hand him the money and go on my way.

____



1. Whilst in the
mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure
stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s
palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?




Answer: Jarin runs up to one of the guards and whispers "Keep an
eye out for that man who just walked in." the guard nods his head
slightly, and walks into the palace. Jarin walks close behind him. Once inside
the palace they notice the shady figure again. the guard yells "Stop right
there!" and the figure bolts to the left, only to be stopped by two more
guards standing by the door to the dining room. The assassin pulls out a knife,
and stabs one of the two guards by the dining room in the chest. The guard let
out an agonizing cry before falling to the ground. The other guards rush
him, and the guard Jarin warned earlier stabbed the assassin through his back
with his sword. The guards thanked Jarin for warning them, and two guards
carried the wounded guard to a healer.





2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large
clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armor and an iron longsword, how do you react?




Answer: Jarin realizes that the old man could be in danger, and walks
toward the cobbled cabin. Jarin then realizes that one of the bandits is
sheathing his sword, in retaliation Jarin charges the man and stabs him in the
back with his Longsword. The other bandit jumped back and sheathed his sword,
Jarin went for his hip, but the bandit was too fast and cut Jarin’s cheek. Jarin
retaliated and sliced off the bandits head. The old man came up to Jarin,
shaking but not harmed and thanked him for saving his life from the bandits.





3. You are standing within the mighty human
capital when you notice a small man standing behind a
colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).




Answer: Jarin approaches the stall and see’s  a steel sword sitting on a shelf in the stall
“How much for that sword?” says Jarin “Well what price were you thinking of?”
Replied the merchant “How about 70 minas?” the merchant picks up the sword and
puts it the front counter. “Well… I could let it go for about 80 minas, but no
less.” Jarin only had 70 minas in his pocket at the time “Well I’m not going
any higher than 70  minas.” The merchant
looks at him with a sneer “This is fine sword lad, I’m not just going to let it
go for 70 minas!” Jarin had to think of something quick, swords like the one
the merchant was selling don’t come around that often, because it was a really
fine sword indeed. “I think I will just go to that stall on the other side of
the street and buy a sword, he is selling them for about 65 minas each.” Says
Jarin with a grin “65 minas! For a steel sword! No one would sell a sword like
that at that price!” Yells the merchant “Fine. 70 minas for the sword.” Jarin
hands the merchant the money which he quickly snatched, and handed Jarin the
sword. “Pleaser doing business with you.” And with that Jarin walked away with
his brand new steel sword.

Role-playing: Role playing is not just when you play a character in a game but act, think and learn as that character. Your speech, actions and where you go and live must all fit in with the history and story you have built around this character.
Meta-gaming: Meta gaming is using information not available to your character. For example if you overheard about a battle on team speak you could not attend unless you were told about it in game. A very common example on Lord of the Craft is addressing someone by name after reading their character card but before actually asking their name in game.
Power-emoting: This is when you emote an action in roleplay that gives the other player no chance to respond or defend themselves. For example: "I swing my sword at you removing your head" should instead be emoted as "I swing my sword at you attempting to remove your head".

Full Name: Dr Erasmus Shelley Dippel
Current Age: 24
Sub-race (if any): N/A
Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):

Born in Salvus under a wealthy name in a small family Erasmus had nothing to set him apart from the other rich boys of his area. Like them he attended a private school, excelled at it thanks to overpaid home tutors and swiftly moved on to one of Asulons more prestigious University's. It was only there that he path took one slightly different to most of his childhood peers. Although still not unusual for his social class Erasmus settled comfortably into scientific studies as opposed to the more popular politics and scholar courses offered at the time. Coming out with full honors in biology, chemistry and anatomy Dr Erasmus (As he had now become) set up a practice in his town which quickly grew popular with a steady stream of recurring patients. Erasmus quickly settled into a comfortable life.

To combat the dull void between patients Erasmus begin playing with science as if it was a toy. He found the body a particular playground where chemicals could manipulate the mind and jolts to certain areas could produce spasms. As he sunk deeper into his knowledge it became a crutch for him. Any problems that arose could be combated by science. Illness could be cured, limbs repaired and minds soothed. Only when the body was ready to expire did science become limited and that Erasmus understood. Life and death was beyond mans control and that did not reveal a weakness in science as it limited the world as a whole. Even the Elves, long lived eventually expired. Of course that view was not true. Erasmus had seen one source of power that COULD ignore the rules of life and death. Magic. He did not understand it but viewed it as an alternative branch of science. One less tested and seemingly more erratic. One that didn't suit the more superior science he himself studied. Those who practiced in it could keep it as long as it didn't get in his way (and he did his very best to get out if its way!). Unfortunately there came a day when magic and science clashed.

One day a patient was brought in who did certainly not have an appointment. Erasmus father. Suffering a wound to the stomach he was bleeding heavily and one look at the wound told Erasmus that his father could not be saved and his time to die had come. His mother not being able to bare the grief fled his practice only to return in the arms of a magic wielder. One who claimed that his fathers wound weren't mortal. Erasmus protested but his mother only silenced him as the mage quickly mended his fathers wounds. The smiles on their faces and their reassurance that their son had "tried his best" stung worse than his fathers death could ever have. As he grabbed his medical notes and tools shoving them into a leather bag he stormed from his practice, his father shouting "Don't do this, you must understand science has its limitations and that is not your fault!" only for Erasmus to reply "One day it wont." He never returned to the practice.

Boarding one of the first boats for Elysium with his leather bag in hand and but a few minas to his name the Dr moved around town to town making money from field surgeries and medicines he mixed himself. All the time learning and observing from the races he visited. With the knowledge he needed the day came when he could board the boat to Anthos to set up a more permanent practice and fulfill his promise to the world that it was not magic it needed. It was science.

Ambitions for the Future:[/b] To replace magic in its form with scientific alternatives. Be it healing, transportation or any other day to day application of science. Prevention of magic being used on people is also a smaller goal but the ultimate would be to remove death or at least to reverse it via scientific means.
Personality:[/b] Dr Erasmus is a calm, quieter man who does not support violence in exchange for mental solutions to problems. He is slightly reclusive but only to the extent that he rarely makes friends and would prefer to stay at home most nights. Highly intelligent but with a narrow mind towards science and anything related such as the undead.
Skills:[/b] Skilled surgeon and doctor. Has extensive knowledge in chemist, biology and the human anatomy (other races limited). A significant lack of combat skills.
Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin):[/b] Always smartly dressed in a long woolen coat with a pair of glasses and often leather gloves. he is always seen carrying his leather doctors bag containing notes on his research. Posted Image
Any other details you wish to share about your character:[/b]
He is an atheist.

____

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?

Answer: Dr Erasmus observes the figure. The Dr is currently on his way a pregnant mother who needs his assistance and also recalling the Emperors religious policies and rule considers all this to be none of his business. The Dr may be a good man but he is also logical. Any danger to himself would be a danger to his patients health. Someone else will spot the figure he is sure and with that he continues on to his patient.


2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?

Answer: Dr Erasmus dives towards the bandits, as the one swings his sword towards Erasmus's chest he twists his body and strikes at the bandits exposed shoulder. The bandits best arm is injured and he drops his sword looking at the blood trickle and pool into his hand. The other bandit now strikes for Erasmus skull. Erasmus grabs his hand before headbutting the bandit in the head so hard he crumples into a head on the floor. He then helps the old man to his feet as two stunning ladies exit the cottage congratulating and praising him. Erasmus then awakes from his vivid dream chuckling at the prospect of himself being a warrior. He moves the vial of coal dust and spider venom a little further from his bed before nodding off back to sleep.

3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).

Answer: As the Dr moves through this new marketplace he spies the stand. Trying his luck and thinking that one has to get to know the town eventually he approaches the vendor. "Sir you sell everything I can image. Am I correct?". The seller eying the Dr as a stranger smiles as such an easy target "Why yes sire, Can I interest ya in some drakes teeth or prehaps a frost which hair?". The Dr smiles and simply says "What about embalming fluid?". The vendor slightly puzzled pauses for a moment before removing a small bottle from a stand behind him "Thats all I got but its usually enough fer hunters and the like to mount a head or two on the lodge walls. You don't look like any hunter I have seen before though?. "That is because I am not a hunter. I am a scientist and Dr who has recently set up practice just east of here" replies the Dr politely. "What need does a Doctor need for embalming fluid? the puzzled merchant asks. The Dr simply replies "Some things are so much more easier to study when they are dead". The Dr views the price of the bottle frowning slightly but then shrugging and handing over the exact amount of minas without an argument. The keeper clearly happy with the easy trade thanks the Dr repeatably and encourages him to return. The Dr, still smiling turns to him and ends the conversation with a simple sentence "Oh don't worry i wont have to. I now have the formula to replicate my own embalming fluid" before walking away whistling leaving a distraught vendor in his wake.
"Reality is only limited by your imagination!"

____

1. As you walk through the deep forests you hear the
sound of whispering and snickering. Upon inspection you
realize that a group of High Elves are mocking a small
Wood Elf child. How do you react?

Answer:
- Aliel's footsteps landed gently on the leaf covered ground. The faint noise of voices caught her attention, taking her to a scene that unfolded before her. A small child, mali'ame, was practicing with his bow and doing rather horribly. It was showing on his face his frustration and how upset he was by those that were mocking him. A small group a High Elves. Ali's pale gray face darkened as her eyes narrowed. First she would help the child, then she would deal with the Mali'aheral.

Ali walked up to the child who had again missed his target of an apple on a log. He looked over at her, scared at first but she kneeled down and coo'd softly, "Shh look. Can I help?" She asked, holding out her hands toward the young boy. He sniffs, wiping away some fallen tears and nods holding out his bow and an arrow. Instead of taking it, Ali stands next to him. She took the next few minutes to show the boy a better stance, and he shot the apple on his next few shots. When he went to thank her, she was already gone. Facing against the High Elves who were mocking the boy.

"I don't know who you are, but I know who you think you are. You are not that here. And your fun is over. Look, the boy made the shot. Now if you could kindly be on your way, I'm sure you mali'aheral's have a much better place to be than this." Her voice growled, her purple eyes fierce. Glaring as the group lifted their chins with huffs and walked off.

2. Whilst wandering through the Elven forests you come
across a frail old man with a walking stick. He collapses
in front of you, falling to the ground with a sharp thud.
Out of his pocket falls a small pouch of gold coins,
which hits the ground and splits open spreading coins
across the pathway. The man lies there, defenseless -
what do you do?

Answer:
- Ali watched the man collapse, falling quickly to her knee's to pick him up and sit him up right, asking him if he was alright. Her violet eyes followed his gaze to the gold that was spread across the pathway. She moved to collect it all, pouring it all back into his pouch and handing it to him. She promised him that she would find him some help before she would even think to leave him there.

3. Whilst traversing the Elven Woodlands, you come
across a small clearing in which a colored carriage sits.
A trader stands outside of it and calls you over, telling
you of his wares. He points out that his carriage sells
just about everything, and that he's willing for you to
haggle for a price. What does your character do? (Please
include:- item, haggling for prices and the discussion
involved).

Answer:

- Ali looked through his wares, a certain violin catching her eye. It was made of a sturdy maple, and was a deep red color. With a matching bow and rosin. She asked him about it and he responded with a price that was a bit out of her budget. He mentioned he would haggle so she placed a hand on her hip and gave another look at the violin.

"Mind if I play it a bit?" She asked and the man shook his head.

"No 'mam. Please do. I haven't heard a good song in ages it seems."

Ali smiled and after fiddling with the sound a bit, she played a quick song her father had taught her. The man smiled at her talent and took the violin back from her.

"It sure is nice isn't it?" He asked her, a big smile on his face.

Ali knew it was a very nice violin, but she was a smarter girl than to put it out there. "It's alright.."

"Just alright?!?"
"It's alright.."

"Hmm. How much ya want for it?"
"I can trade you this bracelet for it."

Ali said, holding out her arm where a simple gold bracelet lay at home. In the middle of one of the loops of the bracelet laid a shiny purple gem. She had found the bracelet in a walk through a city, she couldn't find the owner so she kept it. The merchant seemed to like this idea and nodded. Ali traded him the bracelet and left being the one coming out ahead in the deal.

Kevin lives the life of the elf and, makes all decisions for his character.
Meta-gaming: When someone uses external sources to effect In-Game experience to get an advantage. This is wrong in my opinion and should never happen. Example: Sally knows Bob in real life. Sally knows that Bob has a secret chest under hid house from talking to him. Sally goes to Bob's house in game and takes the secret chest.
Power-emoting: When someone emotes against another person, and that person being emoted against can not prevent it. Example: Someone goes up to another person and does. *Bob slaps Sally* <-- There's no way Sally can prevent this and this is power emoting.

Full Name: Kelvin Grove Wisp

Current Age: 200

Sub-race (if any): Wood Elf

Past /
History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):
Kelvin was born to a poor family. He couldn't get food from the local towns. His father, Arthus, always believed that hunting was the key to survival. His mother, Elest was an exceptional gatherer. She always brought ripe fruits and vegetables to the dinner plate. Kelvin was always taught to be a mannered person, but rarely talked to other people living out in the wilderness. He was always never allowed to leave their yard alone. Kelvin's father took Kelvin out to hunt every week. They would bring an abundance of food. Every few months, Arthus would go to the local town and collect house supplies. All the furniture in Kelvin's home was made from gathered materials. They didn't have the money to buy a house, so they built one instead.  Kelvin's grandfather was a very wise old elf. He knew the ancient Elven tongue well. He had past away before Kelvin's father was even born, so the language had been lost in the family.

Kelvin was a master archer. He was very talented in archery, and even surpassed his own father, who taught him how to first handle a bow and arrow. Kelvin had some weaknesses though. He did not know how to properly hold a sword. He was also not as big in body shape for him being a Wood Elf. He also doesn't have great stamina. He isn't as tough as the other elves, but he is agile, fast reactor, and deadly archer. One day changed his life completely and led him to a world of adventure. On a stormy night, when Kelvin was fast asleep, Vicious Orc raiders wandered the woods near his home. His parents were up hoping the raiders don't find them. Arthus grabbed his bow that was handcrafted by Kelvin's grandfather. The bow was given the name, Celest. Arthus would some day hand Celest down to Kelvin when the time was right. When Arthus aimed to grab the door handle, a rock flung by an orc hit the door. Arthus stumbled backward, and saw six angry orcs with axes run toward the house. They were about 50 yard away. Arthus opened the door and opened fire on the orcs. While Kelvin's mother, Elest woke up Kelvin and told him to run to the hill right behind the home. Kelvin ran straight up to the top of the hill. Trying to see if his parents were alright. Every now and again he saw an orc running,then the orc disappeared under the trees. Just a few minutes later, Kelvin's mother caught up and hugged Kelvin. Kelvin was worrying for his father, so without hesitation, he ran down the hill and glanced to the right. He saw his father stumble over a rock and tumble into a bush. He ran straight to his father, picked up Celest and an arrow. He looked up, and saw an orc running straight toward him. He aimed Celest, and fired.

After the raid attack from the orcs. Kelvin and his family became different. They were more cautious, and had emergency plans. Kelvin's father only suffered minor bruises and cuts. He had taken out five of the six orc warriors with Celest. Kelvin had finished the last orc. The orcs had almost killed Kelvin's father. Arthus knew that now was the time to pass down Celest to Kelvin. The bow he had cherished would now be in Kelvin's hands. Kelvin has grown up now, and is ready to explore the rest of the world.

Ambitions for the Future: Kelvin wants to be the best archer ever known. Kelvin also wants to be a very successful elf and become a part of the economy.
Personality:Kelvin is a well mannered elf. He is charming and loves to go out hunting. He can be ruthless when tempted to.
Skills: He is a master archer. He also is skilled in gathering and harvesting.
Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin): Posted Image
Kelvin has light brownish skin. He has brunette hair color. Dark eyes. He wears archer clothing.He Always has a quiver full of arrows on his back. He is tall and slightly slender.

[b]1. As you walk through the deep forests you hear the sound of whispering and snickering. Upon inspection you realize that a group of High Elves are mocking a small Wood Elf child. How do you react?[/b]

Answer: Kelvin clenches his teeth, as the sight of this sickened him. He pondered on ideas to help the young wood elf. He decided to run up to the young boy, and take him back to town. As Kelvin walked up to the Wood Elf child, one of the High Elves grimaced, and said, " Is that your puny daddy there. Well he's about to get a beating. " The three High Elves started drawing their magical weapons at me. One High Elf conjured a small fireball and shot it at me. Kelvin rolled over to the side just barely dodging it by a few inches. Kelvin screamed, " We don't have to fight, just withdraw your weapons and let this boy go!" The obnoxious High Elves ignored Kelvin and kept shooting fireballs at him. The Wood Elf had become frightened and ran through the woods. Kelvin ran after him, he kept on sprinting and then halted. He was breathing hard, and couldn't run much further. The High Elves were on his tail. Kelvin couldn't see the Wood Elf child anywhere, then thought to himself that it may be better if he's away from the High Elves. Then Kelvin spotted a twig snap above him. The Wood Elf had climbed the tree in front of Kelvin. The High Elves had caught up to Kelvin by now, but Kelvin with Celest aimed at them, fired 2 arrows until he was knocked out by a fireball. He was burnt on his left arm and leg. He had crippled two of the High Elves though. The 2 High Elves retreated back into the woods, while the remaining one started walking up to Kelvin. Kelvin drew an arrow, but his hold on Celest slipped and he dropped the bow. The High Elf snickered and said, " You are a pretty good shot, its too bad your about to be burned alive. " Just as the High Elf was about to conjure another fireball, he was hit on head with a rock. As The High Elf tumbled forward right at Kelvin, Kelvin saw the Wood Elf child holding a few pebbles picked up from the earth. Kelvin took a few looks at the High Elf, and it seemed as the High Elf was out cold. Kelvin said between gasps, " Thanks kid, you saved my life." The Wood Elf Child, smiled and ran off into the woods.


[b]2. Whilst wandering through the Elven forests you come across a frail old man with a walking stick. He collapses in front of you, falling to the ground with a sharp thud. Out of his pocket falls a small pouch of gold coins, which hits the ground and splits open spreading coins across the pathway. The man lies there, defenseless - what do you do?[/b]

Answer: The old man manages to get one raspy word out before knocking out, "Help." Kelvin becomes shocked. Kelvin immediately first suspicion was that this might be the Wood Elf Child he encountered before. Kelvin dismisses the thought, as that was impossible for the Wood Elf Child to age this much in only a few years. Kelvin then picks up the fragile old man and lays him down near a bush. Kelvin notices the old man is bleeding, as he fell upon a twig on the grass. Kelvin takes out Celest, and glances around the woods, making sure no one was chasing the old man. Kelvin saw no one so he withdrew Celest. Kelvin notices the old man is a Wood Elf, but can't determine his age. He also noticed the old man had battle scars on his arm. Kelvin took out is medicine bag,and took out some mixed herbs and smothered it across the wound. Kelvin then took out a strip of cloth and wrapped it around the old man's leg, where he was badly cut by the twig.  The old man started to regain consciousness and opened his eyes. The old man was shocked and took out a hidden knife he had tucked in the worn robe he was wearing. The robe was dirty and had many holes in it. Kelvin backed away a few steps and said, " It's alright, I'm only trying to help you. " The old man then relaxed and dropped the knife. Kelvin walked up and took the knife, " I'll take this for now. " Kelvin had no idea where this man came from. Then the old man started to speak, " I was running from the town that was being raided. I couldn't bring any of my belongings except that knife and a few coins, that should be somewhere. Kelvin looked around and just now saw the gold coins spread out on the floor a few yards away. Kelvin went and picked up the coins, he noticed that the coins looked very valuable and might be worth plenty minas. He puts the coins back into the pouch and tightens it. Kelvin hands the pouch to the old man and asks, " Where were you headed?" The old man looks at Kelvin and responds, "I was headed to the Elven Capitol, Normandor, it should be up ahead." Kelvin helps the old man up, and takes him all the way to the capitol. As they arrive the capitol, the old man says, " Oh thank you, young elf. You had healed my wounds and helped me get to me all the way here. I am going to live here for now, and these gold coins shall help me get settled. They are very valuable and just one is worth quite a few minas. So here I will give you one coin for helping me through this. That should be enough for what you did. I will be on my way now, farewell." Kelvin says goodbye and goes on to explore the capitol, he had never been to

.
[b]3. Whilst traversing the Elven Woodlands, you come across a small clearing in which a colored carriage sits. A trader stands outside of it and calls you over, telling you of his wares. He points out that his carriage sells just about everything, and that he's willing for you to haggle for a price. What does your character do? (Please include:- item, haggling for prices and the discussion involved).[/b]

Answer: The trader offers Kelvin a fine quiver made from high quality deer skin. Kelvin offers a price, " I will pay 1000 minas for this fine quiver that will hold my valuable arrows. The trader responds angrily, " No, I will not sell this fine quiver for a mere 1000 minas! That is an outrageously low price wood elf!" Kelvin flinches as the maddened trader yells. Kelvin responds, " Please calm down, maybe we can haggle for a fair price on the quiver then."  The trader cools down and then says, "Oh right, I am sorry for my yelling, I have some problems as you can see." The trader ponders for a few moments then says, " Hmm, how about 5000 minas." Kelvin responds, " I don't believe I have that many minas currently. If maybe you could lower it and I could chip in some medicine." The trader makes a face, that is neither happy nor angry. Then responds with, " What sort of medicine, and how much minas with it?" Kelvin replies, " Medicine that I have made with my skill in herbalism and made from fine herbs I have searched throughout the Elven woods for. I would also like to pay 2500 minas. The medicine could also be sold for a nice profit too. As this is a one of a kind recipe that my mother had told me. This medicine will help any cut, wound, or scrape." The trader looked a tad surprised and then reclaims, "If you could make it 3000 minas and a bag of that medicine, we will have a deal." Kelvin thinks for a moment, then realizes he had gotten 2000 minas cheaper then what the trader originally wanted, and the medicine he could easily create again by going out to collect the herbs used to create it. Kelvin finally responds, "I'll take that deal. Thank you for the quiver." They exchange items and Kelvin equips his new high quality quiver.  He then continues his adventure.

Full Name: Vectis Vekon.

Current Age: Eighteen years old.

Sub-race (if any): None.

Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):
Born in Ager, Vectis was raised the son of a shepherd. ( He is not Rolf from Ed, Edd, and Eddy ) When Vectis's father wasn't tending the herd, he was teaching his son swordplay and how to read and write, being a veteran man-at-arms of the Oren Lances. Vectis enjoyed these lessons and when he was idle would often be found with either sword or book in hand. When he grew old enough to look after the herd himself, he would often forsake the staff and bring his father's sword to the field and sharpen it, sometimes hoping a wolf might stray towards his flock so he could strike it down. His mother was a quiet, godly woman who often lectured in lessons of the true faith and quoted parables passed from her peers to relate to their life.

When he came of age, he bid farewell to his parents, following the advice of his mother to 'find his own way'. His father proudly bestowed upon his son the heirloom of his sword and with it, he set out onto the road to find his own way.

Ambitions for the Future: Vectis is young and naive and often dreams about enlisting in the Oren Lances or becoming a great scholar.

Personality: Vectis is friendly if not racist; wise if not ignorant, and strong if not afraid.

Skills: He is literate, well skilled with a sword for his age, and damn fine at herding sheep.

Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin): Vectis has medium-length blonde hair and cerulean-blue eyes. He stands tall at five feet and eleven inches tall. He is neither muscular nor weak, nor skinny or fat. Vectis speaks in an eloquent tenor voice, rather surprising for the son of a shepherd.

Open-Response-Questions
Each question in this section must be answered with a minimum of one paragraph which must describe the event in full. Please be as descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.
____

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?

Answer: Spotting the malicious figure, I shout with certainty as to the potential assailant's agenda, "Guards! Assassin!" Drawing my father's sword, I join them in apprehending the individual, regardless of their true intentions. The guards, impressed by my handiwork, reward me with a few Minas.


2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?

Answer: Stepping forth with courage in my heart and an overwhelming sense to do good, I draw my father's sword and shout to the bandits to step away or be cleaved in twain! One of them step forward to handle me but I outmaneuver him in my lighter armor, splitting him in half horizontally with a powerful sweep of my sword. As the second bandit now turns on me, I shout, "now!" as the old man rushes forward, stabbing the bandit in the back, ending him. The old man invites me in to share in his drink, but I have more important things to do, and set off.


3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).

Answer: Laying my eyes upon a set of iron armor, I point towards it and say, "that one". He responds with a smile and asks a price. "Four-hundred and ninety Minas."
"Five-hundred and fourty Minas."
"Hm-... Five-hundred and twenty Minas-.. and I'll add three cuts of wool."
"Deal!"
And so I take the armor and exchange the wool with the merchant.

In-Character Information:
Complete the following biography on your character:

Full Name: Kili Kuldak
Current Age: 18
Sub-race (if any): Northerner
Past /
History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long): When I was 8 years old my family moved down from the north down to the southern capital of Al'Khazar.  There I spent my days going to work with my father, Tyron Kuldak, down in the mines.  My father was the best of the miners because there were not many northerners in the city.  My mother, Brittin Kuldak, and my sister, Hijaa Kuldak, worked at home cleaning most of the time.  When I would get home from the mine my mother would teach me and my sister how to read and to write and the history of Oren.  
Once when I was 10 my parents went out for the afternoon.  I thought that it was a great opportunity to to go exploring outside the city because my parents didn't allow me to.  I was walking down the path away from the city, when I saw a group of shadows coming from the woods.  I didn't pay much attention to them because I figured it was another group of guards on their patrol.  I noticed that the group was making a strange noise; it sounded like clattering bones.  I looked over to see a rogue group of Undead walking right at me.  The lead Undead notched an arrow in his bow, pulled it tight, and released.  All of a sudden I got hurdled at the ground.  My chest seared with pain, my vision was blurred.  I felt cold chain-mail on me.  Suddenly a roar of hollering came out of the forest, and a group of Teutonic Sariants came bounding out, charging fearlessly at the mod of Undead.  The Teutonic Sariant got off of me and ran to join in the battle.  I watched as they slashed at the Undead with tremendous strength and precision.  when the battle was over, the man who had tackle me to save me from the arrow came walking over to me and held out his hand to pull me up.  I accepted it and he pulled me up.  He said to me, "You shouldn't be out here.  How about you run back into the city."
"Yes Sir," I said trying to please him.  "I have one question though.  What were those that attacked me?"
He answered, "A group of rogue Undead that have existed since the war against the Undead.  We have been tracking them down for months."  He then reached into his chain-mail and yanked something off his neck.  He told me to close my eyes and hold out my hand.  I did as he told and I felt him put a warm chain necklace in it.  I opened my eyes and saw a black chain necklace with the Teutonic black cross on the end of it.  He then said, "So you remember never to endanger yourself like this ever again."  I was too shocked to do anything except clench my fist down hard on the necklace.  He turned and walked over to his comrades where they started walking away.  I realized right then and there that when I grew up i was going to join the Teutonic Order and Become a Sariant myself.

[b]1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperors palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?[/b]

Answer:  "Hey!  You there! Where do you think your going?" I yell over to him and he turns and glares at me.  "Guards, do you this this man?" I yell over to the guards.  The shadowed man freezes and turns to look at the guards and sees that they are walking over.  He starts to sprint away.  He's quick, but I'm quicker.  I ran at him and "Slam!" I tackle him with tremendous force.  I wait for the guards to come over and get him before I get off.  I brush the dirt and dust off me and say, "Just another day in the kingdom."


[b]2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?[/b]

Answer: I rush over and push aside the bandits and walk over to the old man and turn around to face the bandits.  "What are we doing here boys?" I ask.
"It's none of your business kid," one of the bandits responds, "Now run along.
"Everything is my business."  I say back.  The two bandits look at each other and nod.  They pull out their swords, as do I.  I tell the old man to back off and he follows my orders.  The two bandits charge and the first one swings.  
I quickly parry the attack and hit him with a strong counter strike to the torso causing him to fall to the ground.  The second bandit swings and I dodge it.  I kick the second bandit's shin and thrust my sword into his chest.  I pull out my blood stained sword and see the first bandit hobbling away.  I turn to look for the old man and see him coming out of his house with money in hand.  He offers it as a reward but I refuse.

Answer: "Do you have some arrows for sale?" I asked the merchant.
"I do," the merchant answered.
"How much would 32 arrows cost?" I asked him making sure that he was the first to set a price.
"Around 192 minas." He answered.
"How about 96.  That is a fairer price."
"160 and you got a deal." The merchant countered.
"Ok, we'll split the difference at 128 minas." I said.
"You got a deal!" He said.  We shook hands and i gave him my 128 minas and he gave me the 32 arrows.

Definitions

In your own words define the following terms. Do not take any definitions from elsewhere!:



Role-playing: To me, role-playing is taking up the persona of a character and doing what they would do in a situation.  You behave as your character would behave and not what you would be like.  Eg. if you were in a situation and you had to share gold, you might be generous and share it all out evenly, but your character might be greedy, so you would have to be greedy: like your character.

Meta-gaming: To use information that you have gathered outside the game to your advantage inside the game.

Power-emoting: Doing things in game that your character would not be able to do like saying your character can dodge every attack and kill anything with one strike of a twig.



In-Character Information:

Complete the following biography on your character:



Full Name: El'Malios Leoduin (Mostly refered to as Leo)

Current Age: 243

Sub-race (if any): Wood Elf/Dark Elf

Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long): Leo was orphaned quickly after he was born so he spent the whole of his childhood in a rough and hard orphnanage for low class children.  Life was hard for him growing up in the orphanage because he was often bullied and left out because of his hair and skin tone.  His father was a dark elf and his mother was a wood elf, this lead to him having a light shade of skin and hair which is unusual for dark and wood elfs alike.  He soon became acustomed to the abuse and he started to find ways to get by.  After a few years he learned to fight well in hand to hand combat and built himself up so he could escape one day and survive on his own.

Leo eventually left the horrible place and although still young he could handle himself in most situations he got himself into.  Another former orphan gave Leo a house to live in until he could get a job and pay for his own.  Even though Leo tried his best to stay out of trouble and to lead a good, innoccent life, he couldn't get a job so he quickly fell behind payments for the house and eventually got thrown out onto the streets.  After being on the streets for a few days he was aproched by a man saying he looked strong and should work in his mine.  Leo took him up on his offer and started to earn some gold by mining in exremely dangerous places.  Even though the job  was dangerous Leo enjoyed it and stuck in to get gold.  After Leo had earned himself a decent amount of gold he desided to trace his mother's footsteps and find out about her.  He travelled to Malinor, where his mother lived all her life and he used his money to buy a house and set up a bow business.  In his spare time he tries to learn about his mothers past, and he practices his jumping and bow skills on the massive trees surrounding the city.
Ambitions for the Future:  Leo aims to fight for the wood elves and try to find more out about his mother.

Personality:  Leo loves to use the bow and arrow, he somtimes wields a sword but he is hopeless at it.  He is extremely nosey and always wants to know what other people are up to.  Leo is quite patient and forgiving but once fired up hr finds it hard to contain his rage.

Skills:  Good with a bow and arrow and hand to hand combat, can also talk himself out of nearly every situation.

Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin):  Leo often wears a light liolac tunic with a bright red scarf and trousers, he also wears gloves and brown boots.  His hair is long and light grey and his skin is quite pale.

Any other details you wish to share about your character:  None that I can think of, sorry.

point.

1. As you walk through the deep forests you hear the sound of
whispering and snickering. Upon inspection you realize that a group of
High Elves are mocking a small Wood Elf child. How do you react?




Answer:  I walk over to the elves and ask them why they are doing this.
" We can do what we want peasant, now carry on and leave us alone " exlaimed the leader of the group.
" You have no right to mock that child " I say to them calmly.
" You heard him, we can do what we want, now leave us alone or prepare to face the consequenses" s­ed one of the elves behind the leader.  The child trys to run away while he has the chance but one of the smaller elves quickly catches him and hauls him back.
" YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE DOING THIS " I yelled at the top of my voice while pulling back my tunic to reveal a bow with arrows tucked into my belt.
The elves relise that I am not joking so they turn around and walk away, murmering to each other as they do.  I comfort the child nd tell him to go home but not to tell anyone about what happened, I also give him a gold coin for being so brave.



2. Whilst wandering through the Elven forests you come across a frail
old man with a walking stick. He collapses in front of you, falling to
the ground with a sharp thud. Out of his pocket falls a small pouch of
gold coins, which hits the ground and splits open spreading coins across
the pathway. The man lies there, defenseless - what do you do?




Answer:  I quickly run over to the man and kneel beside him to see if he is ok.
" Did you hurt yourself ? " I ask in a worried voice.
" It is ok, I fall over all the time, I am quite clumsy you see " says the man in a soft voice.  I help him pick up him coins and I give him one of my empty leather bags to put them in.  He gives me the old bag and a few coins for my help.
" Watch where your going, not everyone will help you if you fall over again " I shout after him.  He says something but i didn't quite make it out, I decide it probably wasn't important so I continue through the forests.



3. Whilst traversing the Elven Woodlands, you come across a small
clearing in which a colored carriage sits. A trader stands outside of it
and calls you over, telling you of his wares. He points out that his
carriage sells just about everything, and that he's willing for you to
haggle for a price. What does your character do? (Please include:- item,
haggling for prices and the discussion involved).




Answer:  I look over the items he has for sale and I spot a jet black cloak shining in the sunlight.  He see's my intrest in it and says " Ah, I see you like the cloak ?  It has been woven from the finest spider silk to give it the amazing texture ".
I ask how much he would like for it and he says " 50 gold coins ".  I could afford it but I am not willing to pay that much.
" I only have 25 gold with me, are you willing to sell it for that ? " I lie, hoping he will not see that my leather bag obviously has a lot more than 25 gold in it.  " Surely you have more than that ?! " he says in a startled voice.  " I am sorry but that is all I have, are you willing to sell ? " the man gives me a stern look and passes over the cloak.  I quickly throw out the gold, put it on, and dash back into the forest.

I played Age of Conan about 3 years ago for about a year as well. I have about 2 years worth of playing runescape previously too. (Also, I was PMed by the person who declined my previous application to ask if this is a serious role-playing server or more MMO style combat server. I said it is a serious role-playing server. I am placing this text here because I think that because all these games here are MMORPGs not plain RPGs. Just to clear thing up so I hope not to be denied because of that I am saying here that from what i have read this is a serious RP server not combat-style like mmos.)

How did you hear about the the Lord of the Craft?: More player models mod.

Link any applications that you have previously made for the server: Here is the first app. This was my second app. Here is my third application.

Have you posted this application on the LoTC Forum? If not, then please do so (link above): Here.

Have you read the Elven lore, and shall you ensure you make use of it and follow it in your biography?: Yes


Definitions
In your own words define the following terms. Do not take any definitions from elsewhere!:

Role-playing: Role-playing is when you take on the role of a character and act as if you are that character. Also when you are in a group else doing a specific job. The rest of the group will then when necessary play their own roles and contribute to the success of the group. In short role-playing is several players all helping each other out in their own way.

Meta-gaming: Meta-gaming is using external information which will affect your gameplay. Eg. Using a wiki whilst trying to accomplish X and X and X. Basically giving them an advantage over other players.

Power-emoting: Also known as god-emoting, power-emoting is typing something like "Player1 kills Player2" where Player2 can’t do anything about it. The preferred emote would be something such as "Player1 tries to kill Player2 by stabbing him/her in the chest with his/her sword" so that Player2 can reply with more or less something like this “Player2 parries Player1’s blow with his/her dagger.”

In-Character Information:
Complete the following biography on your character:

Full Name: Evareyla Leyun

Current Age: 46

Sub-race (if any): Mali'ame (Wood-Elf)

Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):

I grew up in Elandriel. Our (my family's) house burned down when I was seven years old. We wandered about for several years until we settled down in Normandor. When I was 22 I moved out of my parent's house. Two years later I was falsely accused of stealing from a merchant in the marketplace and was put in jail for five years.

I was finally released and I became an adventurer serving whoever paid enough, slaying dragons and monsters. I was quite experienced with the bow and trained daily when I wasn't on a mission. After about twelve years I had slain so many monsters I was nicknamed 'The Slayer'. My younger brother joined me on a mission and we decided to pair up thereafter.

Not long after we were asked by a nobleman to assassinate his brother. I refused however my brother accepted and I knew we would no longer be a team. I decided to visit my parents again after about sixteen years without seeing them. By now I was about forty years old. I attended the nature's boon with my parents and the Great hunt. While we were hunting I got a bit separated from the group and heard voices coming from the direction opposite of the group. As I drew nearer I caught snatches for a conversation. "What if we get caught? We....." says one of the voices.

"I've thought it over. We are safe here." replies another voice.

"Yes we....." adds a third.

I draw nearer and see that two of them are Wanted criminals. I mark my way as I rush back to the group and tell them of what I have seen. "Come quickly!" I gasp, so out of breath I can hardly speak. "Criminals, wanted, come!" four of us return to the spot. The criminals were still there. When we emerged from the brush the men jumped up in alarm and the first voice I heard says, "What did I say?" We all jump forwards and grab the thief’s hands. They struggle but we tie their hands behind their backs.

While escorting them to the law an arrow whizzes by my head. "Watch out! We are being attacked!" I say, "Go on without me, I will deal with our attackers." I stealthily detach from the group so that wherever the attackers may be they should be unable to see me. Another arrow flew between the group. It came from the left. I climb a tree as quietly as elvenly possible. I Spot a man on a branch in a tree about twenty meters away. I draw my bow and just as I shoot he jumps out of the tree.

"Bad luck." I mutter under my breath. I jump down and creep after him. He shoots again this time grazing the leader of the group's leg "Close." I say to my-self, "Luckily he's not a good shot with a bow." When I got closer I aimed, fired and..... Missed..... "Oh no, now he knows where I am." I whisper. He stops and turns, but just before he does I dive behind a tree. I waited until he drew nearer with my bow drawn. I heard his footsteps and jumped out from behind the tree and shot at his right arm so as to stop him from being able to shoot at me. "It's a hit!" I shouted with joy. I tied his hands and rushed with him to join the group.

When we returned to the town and turned in the criminal we were poorly rewarded. I have been living in town with my parents still. That was my greatest hunt yet.

Ambitions for the Future: I aspire to be the greatest ranger in Asulon. (Now Anthos I believe.)

Personality: Kind, friendly, honest and sometimes a bit impatient.

Skills: Healing, Growing Plants, Raising Children, Markswomanship. Hunting.

Open-Response-Questions
Each question in this section must be answered with a minimum of one paragraph which must describe the event in full. Please be as descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.

1. As you walk through the deep forests you hear the sound of whispering and snickering. Upon inspection you realize that a group of High Elves are mocking a small Wood Elf child. How do you react?

Answer:

Creeping slowly forwards along the edge of the path partly in the bush I investigate more closely. I spotted a dagger in the belt of one and another has a staff but other than that they are unarmed. I get an arrow ready in case they try anything dangerous. One of them says "Look at its skin, it’s so brown, one could easily mistake it for dirt." he laughs.
"And that dirty hair!" says a second, "It looks like straw."
The child was curled into a ball on the ground crying in the middle of the group. He looked extremely scared. I pitied the child so much. I ran into the middle of the group. All four elves jumped back in fright. "It's another dirt elf!" sneered the tallest. "Get her!"
I drew my bow and shot an arrow through his shoe so as to stick it into the ground. I then drew my bow again and aimed at the nearest elf and aimed for his thigh. At this the other two jumped on me before I could draw my bow again. I decided to use my clumsy short-sword. I grazed the bigger ones arm and barely pierced the other's stomach. When the tallest managed to finally unstuck his shoe he shouted out to the others, "Run for your lives! She's a madwoman!"
When they were gone I asked the child if he was alright.
"Yes thank you." he said still crying, "I’m just a bit shaky."
"I think it would be best if I carried you back to your home, could you direct me to it?" I offered.
"It is right this way, along the path, I was heading home when those horrid elves started pushing me around."
I carried him back to his dwelling.

2. Whilst wandering through the Elven forests you come across a frail old man with a walking stick. He collapses in front of you, falling to the ground with a sharp thud. Out of his pocket falls a small pouch of gold coins, which hits the ground and splits open spreading coins across the pathway. The man lies there, defenseless - what do you do?

Answer:

I help him to his feet and check for bruises and perhaps broken bones, him being a frail old man. Upon seeing that he has none I retrieve the pouch for him and hand it over.
"Thank you kindly." he croaks while dusting off his clothing.
"It's a pleasure sir." I reply while checking the road for dangerous looking figures, "Would you like some help getting to your destination?"
"No thanks. I'm not as old as I seem." he chuckles.
"If you're sure." I say.
"Yes I am." he says. I watch him walk off slowly.
I turn and then as I walk off I hear the bushes rustling behind me but do nothing. I hear the old man shout out, "Help! Robbers! Thieves!"
I silently enter the woods and sneak around until I am behind the robbers. Approach them with my bow drawn. When I am directly behind them they notice I'm there. I hear the one whisper, "Watch out, someone’s behind our back. When I say 'What’s this you have here old man' we turn around and jump on her."
"Sure thing boss." replies the smaller thief.
I shoot the one robber in the leg and shout, "That ain't your pouch is it? You'd best be going before I really hurt you!"
When the Thieves are a good distance away I turn and help the old man again.
"Are you okay?" I ask.
"Only a bit nauseas." he says. "I could use some rest."
"Ok, but I think you had best accept my offer to escort you." I say.
"I agree with you." he smiles.
Several minutes later he gets up and takes his pouch. "I'm ready to go. I am heading to

3. Whilst traversing the Elven Woodlands, you come across a small clearing in which a colored carriage sits. A trader stands outside of it and calls you over, telling you of his wares. He points out that his carriage sells just about everything, and that he's willing for you to haggle for a price. What does your character do?
(Please include:- item, haggling for prices and the discussion involved).

Answer:

Having just found twenty minas and already had another thirty, I was in need of a new quiver I decided to see what he has in store. Perhaps it is true that he has everything. Upon seeing a suitable quiver and arrows I say, "I see you have a quiver and some arrows here." trying not to sound too enthusiastic in order to perhaps get it cheaper.
"Aye, 'tis the best I have." he lies.
"May I examine it more closely?" I ask.
"Here you go. Please be careful." he replies.
I examine it for a little while and I notice a few scratches probably from bumping in the carriage and a broken arrow. After a bit more studying I decide it is good enough. "What is your price for the quiver and the arrows?" I ask.
"How’s thirty-five minas" he says.
"The quiver is a bit scratched and this arrow is broken." I show him the flaws in the set. "I’m sure I could get a better set for the same price." I say.
The merchant thinks for a while and says "Thirty and it's yours."
Knowing I would need more than 20 minas I try to bargain for a better price.
"Twenty would be my highest." I state.
"I'm sorry madam." he says. "I will sell for no less than Twenty-five minas."
I think it over for several minutes and come to a decision.
"I will trade in my old set and pay in twenty minas for this set."
"Done" answers the merchant. "Enjoy your quiver and arrows."
"Enjoy your money." I reply.
I walk off again and continue my journey. Thrilled with the prospect of a new quiver and arrows.

Full Name: Arthur Baranthor

Current Age: 25

Sub-race (if any): Northerner

Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+


paragraphs long):


Arthur grew up with his younger sister Melany (2 years
younger) and his older brother Jack ( 3 years older) in a little town on the northern
borders of The Wilds ( In Asulon ) . Arthur’s mother and father were very much
in love and cared for the children as best they could. When Arthur turned 5 (
Birthday almost at the end of The Secound Seed) his father had decided for the
good of the village that he would create a little task force to protect the
village from bandits and small groups of raiders. All was well, or so it seemed.
Only a short time after The Grand Harvest began the task force they were
thrown into action. A huge group of about 40 bandits road into town seeking
only destruction and death. The task force didn’t stand a chance. It was a
slaughter! Arthur, his sister, brother and mother managed to escape but his
father was killed protecting the village. When Arthur and what was left of the
town returned everything was in ruins, there were body’s everywhere and the
houses were still on fire. It took several years to rebuild the town and even
though Arthur was only 5 he never forgot what those bandits did. From that day
forward Arthur had sworn that he would honor his father and he would become a
knight to stop this from ever happening again. About a year after Arthur’s
father’s death people started to notice that he was lost, he didn’t know what
to be doing himself. The hunters of the village decided to be his role models,
they took him on all there fishing, camping, and hunting trips teaching him
valuable survival skills








On Arthur’s 10th birthday he was given his father’s sword,
it was rusty and dull but it was perfect to Arthur. Along with the sword his
mother gave him an Iron cross necklace. She said “ Arthur, This necklace
belonged to your grandfather, then your father, and now it belongs to you. It
symbolizes everything that is still good in this world, keep it safe and your
father will always be with you”. That day he went outside and took a broom,
some old clothes, and a bucket and made training dummy. Every day since then
rain or shine, weak or strong Arthur would hit and practice on that dummy while
dreaming of the day he would become a knight and avenge his father. On the beginning
of Arthur’s 25th Second seed He kissed his family goodbye and set
out on his quest To become a knight, He did not know what would happen next but
he was ready. He had his sword in hand, his backpack full of travel gear, and
the necklace around his neck which had belonged to his father. That day he
became a man, it wasn’t fun and games anymore, no more dummies, now it was the
real deal. It was his time to go out into the world and make something of
himself. It was his time to become a knight.

descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.








____

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed
figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace – he is clearly
up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?



Answer:


I quickly assess the situation figuring out how long it would
take to get the guards or if I yelled that it might alert the “Dark-Clothed person”.
I figure out where the guards are located and decide to run over to them. I
alert them of the man who entered the palace and ask if I may be of assistance.
While the guards go one way I go the other and start looking for the
Dark-Clothed person. After a couple minutes in the palace I see the dark clothed
person. Now I am sure he I an assassin because he has dagger in hand and is
about to enter the Emperors chambers. I yell For the guards and draw my sword,
at that moment the assassin spins around and trys to attack me. I wound him but
not kill him so that the guards may deal with him. After he has been taken away
by the palace guards I leave and re embark on my quest.





2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you comeacross a
large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside itstands an
unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by twoheavily armed
bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed withleather armour
and an iron longsword, how do you react?





Answer:


I stare and asses the situation. I sneak up behind the bandits
and say. “Hello, how are you fine gentleman doing today”. The bandits turn
around and draw there swords. I say “Well I was just trying to have a
intelligent conversation but if that’s the way you want it, I will comply”. I
draw my sword. The young bandit swings at me screaming. I block with my sword
and hit him in the face with the bunt of my sword knocking him to the ground.
The second man takes a swing at me he’s stronger than I am but somehow I manage
to push his sword away with my own. Now the second man is back on his feet. I’m
not sure I can beat them with strength but maybe I can buy them off. I say “ OK
, ok you win there is no need for more violence take my money and we can
all  go our separate ways. The bandits
smile at each other, the older one says “where is the minas”, I point to my back
and say “ in my bag”. One goes over to check it out and tells the other to take
my sword and watch me., I wait for him to turn his back, when he does I hit him
in the head with a rock I found on the ground, I lean down and pick up my
sword. All of a sudden the sword from the older bandit slices my arm from behind,
in pain I swing around . I turn to the old man cut the man’s leg, as he falls I
stand up. I say “Again, no more blood must be spilled , leave now and take you
friend and never return ”. The leave and the old man is safe. I turned to the
old man and ask if he is all right. He reply’s “I’m fine now that you’re here,
thank you young sir, I don’t know what I would have done without you, but I
must say I thought they had you there for a moment”. I ask him for a needle and
thread so I can sew up my wound. He replies “You’re in luck I was, the village
physician for a very long time” He sews up my wound and lets me stay the night,
in the morning I hit the road again.








3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you
notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall
and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he
is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to
allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling,
items of choice and the discussion that happens).


Answer:


I walk up to the stand, look around at the goods and I catch
my eye on a Iron longsword with a polished rock at the end of the handle. I check
my pocket …… I only have 100 minas and i need to eat tonight. Maybe I can strike
a deal. I say to the owner “ How much for the sword’. He replys “ which one?” I
point to the sword. The stall owner says “Ahh, I see you have caught your eye
on the sword of power” I reply “ The sword of power? Why is it called this” The
stall owner says “ I have no idea but the name helps it sell” I frown. ‘How much”
I ask again. “ 110 minas” he says, I reply “HA, 110 minas for a fake named
sword, how can you expect so much, based on your stalk and the time of day I
say you maybe have sold only 1 or 2 items today yet you still ask for 110
minas”. “ well, I guess maybe 100 minas” “Good day, I will try my luck somwhere
else” As I walk away he shouts “ Fine 81 minas but that’s my final offer” I
turn around with a grin on my face and walk back to the stall and say “ Well
that’s more reasonable, ill take it. I hand him the money and go on my way.

In-Character Information:
Complete the following biography on your character:

Full Name: Pierre Flahough
Current Age: 28
Sub-race (if any): Northerner
Past / History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long): Pierre was born and raised in Ager by a rather poor family. He was never big into physical activities, and excelled in his mother, Thresa’s lessons about the world. He always dreamed of going on an adventure, but at the age of 12 he became rebellious. He was defiant to authority, and got himself into trouble. Days after his 15th birthday, his father Dunkin was arrested for killing a dwarf in a drunken rage, and he was never heard from again.

When his father was put away, Pierre left his home armed with nothing but a stone sword and a dream to explore. He traveled from city to city, meeting people and learning new things. He and his mother reunited years later, and Pierre became more of a local adventurer, talking to people in Ager and learning more about Asulon’s history.

But when the plague struck, Thresa died of the Plague. Pierre hid out in a small community of goblins, where he learned some blah. However, bandits attacked the village and Pierre ran off again. He traveled around the world, trying to stay as far away from life as possible. But one day, he saw boats being boarded by the shore. He could finally leave his past behind and start a new life in another land.

Ambitions for the Future:[/b] Pierre wants to become fluent in blah and discover the world’s many secrets.

Personality:[/b] Pierre prefers to talk his way out of situations instead of facing them head-on. He rarely uses his sword, but he always carries it around as a last resort. He is cocky and sometimes he doesn’t think his plans through well enough which leads to some sticky situations. He always wants to learn more about the world and the creatures that live there.

Skills:[/b] Pierre has vast knowledge of the land and its inhabitants. He can fluently speak common and can speak very little blah. He is a fast talker and has gotten out of many violent situations by reasoning with people. He is decent at best with a bow and is terrible at swordplay. He has spent enough time running from combat to know how to evade captors and sneak away from an enemy, something that has saved his life more than once.

Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin):[/b]
Can't post it on here, it's saved on my computer and I don't know how to upload.

Each question in this section must be answered with a minimum of one paragraph which must describe the event in full. Please be as descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?

Answer: The figure climbs up the side of a building and draws a blade. An assassin. I inhale and yell “ASSASSIN!” at the top of my lungs. Every guard in the square can hear me and they run towards my direction.

“Where?” One of them asks. I point at the rooftops where the assassin is trying to escape. The guards chase after him and I watch as they restrain the killer and drag him away.

2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?

Answer: Not being one to solve problems with violence, I approach the bandits with my weapon sheathed. “What’s going on here?” I ask, stepping between the two parties.

“Stand aside or else you’re next.” One of the bandits orders, pointing his sword at my throat. I draw my bloodstained sword and hold it in a defensive position. “Trust me, you don’t want your blood to join theirs.” I bluff. In all honesty, that is my blood from when I accidently cut my shoulder while practicing.

The second bandit draws his sword and steps close to me. I point it at him as well. “I have taken on at least five better armed scumbags at once. You won’t fare any better than they did.” The bandits called my bluff.

“Then you can take us.” The second bandit taunted. They charged at me with weapons drawn. I clumsily blocked the first attack with the blunt side of the sword and the second bandit cut a strap off of my leather armor. I recoiled from the strike and dropped the sword. “Some tough guy, eh?” The second bandit asked his partner.

“Suuuure.” The first one quipped and charged me. I ducked under the strike and started to run away from the bandits as fast as possible. They chased after me, but I scampered up a tree and jumped onto another. I slid down the trunk of the second tree as they were inspecting the first and dashed off.

3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).

Answer: I walk up to the stall and browse his wares. An odd trinket catches my eye that is shaped like the Orcish god, Krug. “Where did you find this?” I ask.

“I uh, found it in a cave in the countryside. I can’t remember where, but it uh, was definitely a cave.” This guy was obviously a thief, trying to sell any objects he once had. I grinned and toss a single minas onto the stall.

“Here, I’m being generous.” The thief scoffs at my offer.

“I could never sell such a rare artifact at such a low price!” He demands, appalled by my offer.

“How about you sell it to me and I don’t alert the authorities?” I lean in close to him with an arrogant smirk on my face.

The thief’s eyes went wide. “Fine. Take it and leave!” He shouts at me. I pick up the trinket and walk away from him, but not before sarcastically thanking him for his business.

Role-playing: Role playing is when you fill the shoes of another character, it is sort of like being a different person completely, and forgetting everything you know, and learning what your character knows. Role playing is being able to be a completely different person, or to live a completely different lifestyle, with different surroundings, and different people around you.
Meta-gaming: Meta gaming is talking out of character, or (OOC) chat, or having out of character knowledge.
Power-emoting: Power emoting is using emotes in an improper way, which in the end enforces the result on another character without their consent.

In-Character Information:
Complete the following biography on your character:

Full Name: Alexandrith Bronzebeard
Current Age: 20
Sub-race (if any): None
Clan (if any): Bronzebeard
Past /
History (include childhood, major-events, etc. 2+ paragraphs long):[/b] When I was but a wee-little lad, my father, Fenaldrith Bronzebeard taught me in the skill of mining. My family was not rich, but we were happy. My father worked for the wealth of Aegis, mining day and night to feed our family of three. By the time I was age 10, I was already an apprentice blacksmith to my father. I was taught all that I would need to know other than my profession from my mother. She taught me how to read, and how to speak. She was one of the people that helped my father when we were in bad times, and stayed with him throughout. I thought that everything was going swell in the Bronzebeard family, until the fateful day that I walked into the mine my father worked at. What I saw was a gruesome scene. All of the men in the mine were slaughtered, and I immediately worried about the life of my father. As I ran deeper and deeper into the mine, I saw him, with a wound in his stomach. As I collapsed in agony of the sight, I walked closer to him, and told him I loved him, and that he would be able to survive, but I was wrong. On his last dying breaths, he told me who did the deed... It was the orcs. From that day on I swore to avenge my father, and to right to wrong. After then, I took over responsibilities as the man of the family. It was only when I turned 12 when I had to start mining. I've learned to keep my chin up, and think my mug is always half full. When I turned age 16, my mother died when the orcs invaded my village. I remember those moments vividly, running out of the mine looking at all the destruction. It 'twas only days later when I started to adventure into Aegis. Leaving the mountains was tough, but I learned to deal with tragedy, so this was nothing in comparison. After adventuring around Aegis for 4 years, I finally decided that I would start to try to piece my life together, so I decided to work as a mercenary for hire. Ever since I chose my job I have not run out of ale, and my cottage is suitable. I live a nice life.

Ambitions for the Future: All I have ever wanted to do is to be able to own a mine, and to sell my goods to to wealth of Aegis.
Personality: I am a Dwarf of a strong willed nature, and I love to be generous and to help those in need, but if I have to use force, I will.
Skills: My father has trained me well in the traits of blacksmithing and mining. I have also learned how to wield an axe quite well.
Appearance (this must include an in-game screenshot of your skin): I have a semi-pale skin from being inside the mine so much, but I am strong and powerful from my mercenary work. I have a brown-reddish beard.

[b]1. Whilst mining deep in the undergrounds of Kalos you see a large deposit of diamond ore at the other side of the ravine you are on. There is a very thin rock bridge that looks precariously unstable, but it is the only way to access the deposit. What do you do?[/b]

Answer: As I look at the diamond protruding from the wall, I think to myself, "Is the diamond really worth it?". After a swig of ale, it was, so I precariously crossed the bridge with iron footing. As I reach the diamond, I realize, "If I mine the diamond, won't the shock cave the bridge in?". After the ale kicks in, I don't think about that anymore. I mine away at the diamond, and when I go to return, the bridge had collapsed. When I am finished with my last drop of ale, I try and think of a solution, but, it doesn't work too well, and I fall into a deep slumber. After falling asleep, I don't remember much. All I know is that I awoke back in my bed, thinking "Aye, that lager really is strong.".

[b]2. You are sitting in the local tavern with a large pint of ale in your hand - sitting nearby you is a rather young dwarf whom is clearly going through a bad time. He is crying to himself, and clutching a small wooden hammer toy. In the other corner of the room two shady dwarves are sitting whispering to each other and pointing occasionally at the dwarf. They stand up, one with a small dagger in his hand and begin to approach the young dwarf. What do you do?[/b]

Answer: Looking at the young boy and the dagger both, I realize what the shady dwarves might do. I stand up and shout "You want to hurt a wee lad? What kind of dwarf are ye!", and then I charge toward them, mugs 'o ale raised high. As I smash the mugs over their heads, I feel a tingling sensation in my stomach. As I look down, I see the dagger planted in me. I rip the dagger out, and throw it to the floor, and I shortly pass out. Later, I awoke on the bed upstairs in the tavern. As I looked up, I saw the little lad, smiling at me. At that, I grinned, and realized that I saved his life.

[b]3. Whilst wandering through the Dwarven Caverns you hear a voice call out to you; Oi, ye’! Cmere n get yerself an ale!”. You spin on your heel and see a heavily bearded bar-owner looking at you - a huge grin on his face, and a mug of ale in his hand. How do you react?[/b]

Answer: Seeing the ale in the bar-owners hand, I rush towards him, shouting "Why not!". After walking with him back to his bar, we talk about the way things are going in our town. I just kept chugging the ale, and speaking 'bout the town. Eventually, I got so drunk that I passed out. I awoke only to see that my coin and sword have vanished. Walking over the bar owner to ask him what happened, I realize he has my sword! As I stumble over to him, as hungover as a sober dwarf, I ask "Why did 'ya take my sword!?". He replies with "Aye, you gambled your sword and coin away last night.". As I proceed with the walk of shame out of the tavern, I realize, that shoes vanished. Looking around the bar, I see orphans selling a homeless dwarf my shoes. I think "Aye, I got 2 more pairs.", and I leave the tavern.

Open-Response-Questions
Each question in this section must be answered with a minimum of one paragraph which must describe the event in full. Please be as descriptive as possible and do not break character or lore at any point.

1. Whilst in the mighty human capital you notice a dark-clothed figure stealthily making his way towards the Emperor’s palace - he is clearly up to no good. There are guards within shouting distance - what do you do?

I wander over to the guards and tell them "Someone is trying to sneak his way into the damned palace".They reply with "Thanks old man where is this intruder?".I tell them to follow me and we find the figure attempting to get in.The guards apprehend the subject and the dark clothed figure gives Augus a dirty finger sign while she is being pulled away from the palace.

2. Whilst wandering in the deep oak forest you come across a large clearing, in which sits a small cobbled cottage. Outside it stands an unstable old man armed with a small iron blade, surrounded by two heavily armed bandits - they appear to be threatening him. You are armed with leather armour and an iron longsword, how do you react?
I wander over to a nearby tree and watch the bandits taunt and threaten the old man. I decide that interfering will be bad for my health and I tell myself that it's the mans problem not mine.I watch the men knock out the old man and steal his belongings.I wander off into the woods to find some game leaving the event behind.

3. You are standing within the mighty human capital when you notice a small man standing behind a colourful stall. You approach the stall and notice that the man is selling a variety of general goods - he says that he is selling just about anything and that he has no set prices. He is willing to allow you to haggle and choose prices. What do you do? (Explain: your haggling, items of choice and the discussion that happens).

I notice the man has an orcish axe which turns out to be my favorite kind of axe that I was looking for. I ask him "How much are you giving for that axe there eh?". He replys with "Well that axe there has been on me for quite a while no one seems to buy these.You could have that there axe for three gold coins if you can get it off my back."I reply excitingly with "Okay then I'll have it". I give the man three gold coins and he seems happy that I got it off of him. He says "thanks doing business", and I wander off with the axe in hand.
