Small 2-3 Sentence Description of yourself: I've recent finished freshman year and I am now on summer break. I'm mostly an inside person but I'm still active outside of the house. I enjoy to play basketball, soccer, and just plain hanging out with friends. Also I'm filipino if that means anything. (Go Pacquiao!)
How much time could you be on the server weekly?: Considering that I'm on summer break, at least five hours a day. Depending if my family will be doing anything at the time I could possibly go up to nine hours a day.
What do you know about Roleplaying? Give a definition of what it means to you: A simple answer, playing a role. If you want a more in-depth definition I would say it's like a form of acting. The acting of someone who you aren't in real life. It's a bit broad but if you could, you could be anybody. It could just be your imagination doing all the work, or in this case a mix of imagination and visual and oral help from Minecraft.
What experience have you had in Roleplaying, if any?: I've played on a couple SeriousRP servers, one in particular was Aeonis. I played about two or three months on this server and like any other server you start of at the lowest rank, in the two months I worked hard and in about 1 month I got the title Paragon, Dwarf king. These are all fantasy role-play servers, my favorite kind, but I have also tried other kinds such as Fallout style and Prison servers.
In your own Words, define what the act of Meta-Gaming is: Playing your character based off of knowledge that you know OOC. For example, you find out, out of character, that there will be a split in the road. You know the right path leads to sure death so when your back In-game you take the left path. So it’s considered cheating in a way.
In your own Words, define what the act of Power-Gaming is: Having total control over a situation. Being over-powered like hell. Like telling someone that you walked up behind them, stabbed them, then left them there. The other person was give no chance to counter, to run, or to do anything. Your ruling what goes on.
What do you expect this server will be like?: Hopefully it'll be better than the rest. I don't think I've been devoted to a server for more than 6 months, the servers usually just start to lack interest after a short while. I expect this server to live up to its high reputation.
What other server(s) have you played on and why did you leave them?: Aeonis - Got bored. Fallout - Not interesting. Killion - Have yet to leave. TheNationMinecraft - Got overrun, couldn't be controlled.
Have you read, understood, and agreed to the rules?: Yes, yes, and yes. Some I am particularly fond of such as the one against grief. This is a bit too common and slightly getting on my nerves.
Do you promise to abide by said rules, and laws? This includes the Server, Forum, and Teamspeak set Rules: Yes sir, although I'll almost never be on Teamspeak, if I am then yes, I will follow said rules.

His friend Tuor’s home.
Tuor and Beren went to school together, they both met each other in swordsmanship class, a skill they were both very fond of. As young kids they would sneak out and go past the city limits, past there they did extra training, hunting, and sometimes just fooling around. Sometimes Tuor and Beren would take some classmates to join them, when they had at least eight people they would have a small parring competition. Years later Tuor’s family had to move as they could no long support their family, this also meaning that Beren had to stay behind, Beren was thirty-seven at this time.

After these elven months passed Beren grabbed his stylish blue vest which he had received from Tuor’s parents. His mighty sword and he set out into the woods, their he did what he could to survive, even dying his hair a dark brown so that it could match the trees.

Other Information about your Character: Living in the forest for almost seven years Beren has adapted to the new lifestyle. Hunting for foods, getting what he can, and if it comes down to it, stealing.
Whilst traveling from the Cloud Temple you see a small halfling, being harassed by two armed warriors. They appear to be trying to steal money from him, how does your character respond? Beren ready’s up, stands straight and puffs his chest a bit out. Walks up the to the two warriors and asks “Excuse me but I’m just wondering what you want with this halfling.” One of the warriors says “He was on our land, we ‘ought to have the right!” Beren puts his hand on his sword which still unsheathed. “Don’t even think about it elf!” says the other guard. Beren slowly pulls his sword out, the guards mirror him. A clash starts between the two guards and Beren. Beren is obviously more trained than the individual guard but with the two of them Beren was getting slightly over run. Out of nowhere the halfling kicks one of the guards in the shin then running away immediately afterwards. This gave Beren the slight opening he needed, not wanting to kill them Beren hit both with the hilt of his sword knocking them out. Beren then proceeds to lie the down properly.
Your character wanders into Alras, and comes across a small stall, behind which a well dressed man is standing. He’s offering various wares, the merchant turns to you and says in a posh accent " 'ello there, what can I do you for today?" What is your character response? Beren never really liked to trade with strangers so Beren =, out of kindness, asks if he has anything more valuable than his swords. Beren unsheathes his sword and shows it to the merchant. The merchant’s eyes almost glow when he see’s it. The merchant says “I’m sorry sir but I do not.” Beren replies “Then no thank you, but maybe next time.” Winking at the merchant then walking past him.
Whilst wandering in the wilds, your character comes across a small hut, which looks abandoned. Inside it you see a chest containing a few iron bars, and a golden sword. How would your character respond?: Beren see’s the hut and wonders if anyone lives there. Beren spies on the place for about a couple hours, no one arrives so he rummages through the chest grabs the golden sword and the iron bars. Beren then remembers a merchant in Alras, he makes his way there and sells the golden sword. He think’s that he could make use of the Iron bars as well but Beren kept them to make armor in the near future.
Hungry and lost in the wilderness, you stumble across a small trading camp nestled among the forest, they greet you you in the common tongue, how do you respond? Beren responds “Hello, I’m sorry if I sound a bit rude here but may I rest here just for the night?” One of the camp members reply “Hmm. How do we know you’re not a thief or a-” She was cut off by their camp leader. He says “Beren is that you?” The camp is in confusion, but then out of nowhere they all slightly glow and rush to give Beren a hug.” Beren still confused asks “Do I know you? Any of you.” The camp leader replies in excitement “Yes! You, Tuor, and the rest of us would sneak past the city limits. Don’t you remember?” Beren has a small flashback in his head then immediately remembers every single one of them. With a giant smile on everyone’s face Beren was well fed and rested. The next day he set out and was told if he needed any help he was more than welcome to come back.
You hear word that bandits occupy the road outside the town in which you have been staying. The town guard have gathered, and are asking for assistance to help eliminate them. The leader of the party is offering a reward for any who offer their support. How does your character act on this information?: Beren is more than happy to help. They cut the bandits off at the road and circle around them, the bandits never stood a chance. The town guards were smiling as their city was safer. Handing some money over to everyone that helped Beren said “Thank you.” and walked away. As he walked away the guard smiled and said “No. Thank you.”
