What’s the most important rule?: To me the most important rule is basically the no metagaming and powergaming rule, along with godmodding. But I guess Common sense and trust works as well.
If not born there, what brings them to the wild lands of Bide?: To have a new start at life, after all, his past was revolving around constant fear. Skraith is hoping that where he goes next, isn't as scary as the damn lumberjacks.
Backstory (optional): Skraith's tale is a sad one. Skraith was born in a humble nest in a tall, very tall redwood tree. He grew up with joy, and happiness, until one day when he was about 8 years into his life, A group of lumberjacks went and cut down his tree. His family had to evacuate the tree by climbing down it, and had to do it very slowly. They did infact make it down in time before the tree fell, but the lumberjacks saw Skraith and his family escaping deeper into the forest that they killed his family and cooked them up for a feast.
They had kept Skraith hostage for quite some time as they were planning on what to do with him. When he was about 11, Skraith overheard one the men saying that they were also going to cook him up the next day. He knew exactly what he had to do. He had to escape to somewhere far away. So that night when everyone was asleep he opened the cage he was in by using his feet/talons to pick-lock the cage's lock. After he was out of the cage, he slowly got up and took an axe and chopped up the entire lumberjack group.
He then escaped into the forest thinking he would find a better life. But before he left, he took his family's precious bow, it had the magical power of firing fast, for the trade of lower damage. Over the course of 9 years he had found someplace new, the land of Bide. He insists to show kindness to everyone after everything that has happened to him. He may not be a fighter but he is determined to help others out.
If any, list and explain combative abilities: Ranger and sorta can use magic that specializes in water. He usually uses it to help things grow, but if need be, he will try to shoot a pressurized jet of water at his enemy, though it is lacking a lot of strength, most of it mainly can just leave a bruise. His main fighting style is with a bow, and he usually tries to hide in plain sight.
If any, list and explain non-combative abilities: (Lock-picking, well educated in certain kinds of technology/magic, tracking skills. etc): Skraith is someone who likes to grow crops and such, while also using his water magic to well water the plants around him. Another thing Skraith is decent at, is using a forge to create weapons and tools, though he cannot make armor.
When writing, RP as all the characters involved including character emotes and talking. Since you’re roleplaying as all characters, think and act as you would in-game which means there should be no hint of powergaming in your application like automatically hitting someone.
Use this format (this is the format we use on the server):
Doctor Smith: *He rolls out of the way and grips his injured arm tightly* Watch out!
Cody: *Narrowly dodging the falling rocks, he lights up another stick of dynamite* I’ve been a prospector for years. I know what I’m doing! *shakes his fist angrily at Smith*
Vanessa: The ruins are mine, and this cave will be your tomb *She smirks as her tattooed hands begin to glow azure blue*
Prompt One: While riding your horse under the unforgiving sun, you come across an overly protective miner camping outside a cave entrance. He starts throwing rocks at you, barking at you to leave. At this instance, a person can be faintly seen coming out of the cave entrance.
*Skraith would be passing by the mine, on his horse which he named Sabrina, until a rock goes zipping past the back of his head.
Miner: "What do you think your doing? Trying to steal my crown jewels I bet!"
*Skraith would feel offended at being accused of trying to steal, though he kept a straight face. He would pull out his bow, and just stand there with bravery. Skraith didn't load an arrow at all, he merely stood there before beginning to say something.
Skraith: "You think I'd steal some expensive jewels and then get caught with my novice stealth skills? Nah, I be just passing through, getting to the town ahead... You best be going back into the mine from which you came from. But if you continue throwing rocks at me, well my good 'o' bow Gustow here will be putting an arrow in ye knee..."
*The miner would be taken aback by the threat, but would understand the self-defense coming from the bird.
Miner: "Guess you are right, I should probably stop throwing rocks at everyone who passes by, could get me killed if I don't stop. Well thanks for the advice I guess... Just please don't put an arrow in my knee..."
Skraith: I wouldn't think of putting one in that place, unless I had to... but have a good one comrade."
*The miner would then head back inside the mine after he waved goodbye at the birdfolk.
Prompt Two: As you set up camp for the night, you come across a Fjorn which is a creature I just made up and you're totally allowed to do as well. Make up what the creature is and handle it your way.
*It was dark outside as Skraith was setting up a campfire and a pot filled with mushroom stew, when he heard a branch break. Looking up from his soon to be meal, he saw nothing but darkness.
*The Fjorn would be circling Skraith's campsite until it froze after it stepped on a branch and broke it. It would think that stealth was out of the hunt it was trying to do.
*Skraith would look around him and see that nothing was there, and then he looked back at his stew. Then he heard a howl which sounded like the squealing of a pig, mixed with the screeching of a cockatiel. When he looked back up he saw the beast... It had a pigs head, with some parrot feathers sticking up at the top of the head. The body was a feathered scaled body, like that of a dinosaur called yutyrannus. The legs were just plain old gazelle hooves. But the thing that made Skraith worry was the tail of the beast. It looked to be that of another person, only thing was that the person was a rotting corpse. As Skraith looked up into deep black sockets of the eyes, he saw the Fjorn's glowing eyes staring threateningly back at him.
Skraith: "Sorry but I am not on the menu for today, please come back later..."
*And with that Skraith ran for his life, leaving his meal for another creature to eat. Though the Fjorn was terrifying, all it wanted was to have some of the mushroom stew that Skraith was making as it was a herbivore, and while it didn't get to make another friend, it got a full course meal...
Hope that is good enough, the Fjorn beast was a rip of a short story creature I made during one of my classes. I did try to be as descriptive with the prompts as I could, but it all comes down to you if I join or not.
Edit: Forgot my IGN lol
It's an interesting twist that leans more on the fantasy side which is a welcome addition.
