    Character Information


    Name: Galen Tork


    Age: 29


    Race: Half Human, Half Wild Elf


    Physical description:


    Galen is taller than average (6'3"), and has a somewhat muscular physique that is more lean than bulky. He has dark skin, most likely from his origins in the hot, humid lands of Mezenia. He has various tattoos running along both of his arms and the right side of his neck.


    Skin:


    Biography (Minimum 225 words. Most very fleshed-out characters have around 300, but feel free to use even more than that if you wish. Try and avoid clichés such as loved one being killed by bandits or the like):


    Galen was born in the land of Mezenia, to a wild elf named Maybelle Tork who lived in a poor, mostly human farming village on the borders of the country's jungles. Before she had Galen, Maybelle kept the company of many men and therefore he never knew who his father was. After giving birth, she changed her ways, and focused on raising her only son.


    Galen grew up poor. The town's main economic activity was trading the food they grew with the wild elven tribes that would pass through it occasionally. For most of his childhood, farming was one of the only things he knew; when he wasn't working, he'd spend his time drawing people and trees. He picked up the wild elven language from his mother before he learned to speak Caro. As soon as he was old enough, Galen learned the basics of planting and tending to crops. When he was eleven, he began to trade crops with and regularly interact with a few of the wild elven tribes.


    Although she made it her mission to be the best possible mother for her child, Maybelle began to drink a lot, possibly driven by their harsh and seemingly hopeless living circumstances. Galen saw this and tried to fight against it with her, but they both ultimately failed as she fell deeper into a life of alcoholism. When he turned thirteen, Galen decided that he wanted to build a life for he and his mother somewhere away from Mezenia. He left their farm and traveled to the sea, where he brought passage to Alann with nearly all of the coin he and his mother had saved up. It was in the capital of the country that he spent the formative years of his life, and learned to fight. He helped Maybelle fight her addiction by keeping a watchful eye over her. He brought her everywhere with him, whether it was to the barracks for swordsman training, or to the town square where he'd often play chess (or this world's equivalent)) with a few other regulars. The nature of Alanni society required that Maybelle serve in the military as well, and this helped revitalize her wild fighting spirit. Together, they began to prosper in their own special way in Alann, Galen growing proficient with both the sword and the axe as he grew through his teen years. ((This is where he learned to wear light armor, and use simple weapons))


    It was when he was nineteen that Galen was contacted by a mercenary company based in Horizon. They were offering a nice amount of pay, enough that in a year's time, he might be able to buy a larger house for his mother and provide for her. He left Alann and traveled to Horizon to join the company, where he found that most of the members were orcs. At first, he was reluctant to join, thinking back to every terrible thing he'd ever heard about "savages" in his lifetime. However, he realized that the gold was too much to pass up, and so he joined the company. He wasn't the only human member, but they were definitely a minority.


    During the first six months of his tenure with the company, he was mauled in nearly every single sparring session with his orc companions. The beatings threatened to break his spirit, as he had gone from a very proficient fighter in his mind, to a beginner again. Despite his height, Galen was thin, due to his wild elven blood. It was hard for him to gain weight if he did not make a conscious effort to eat and exercise even more than the average fighter had to. After cursing the gods for making his body the way they did, Galen began to change his diet and practicing regiments. He made his workouts more intense, and ate as much as he could every day. After a few months, he began to see differences. He knew that he would never gain enough bulk to match the strength of the orcs, but the extra weight that he put on helped him adapt his fighting style to utilize his own strength. When he was finally able to hold his own against one of his orcish lieutenants, he joined the company officially and received his first tattoo. ((As he practiced, he began to use medium armor and martial weapons. He also learned to make heavy use of quick counter attacks, in order to use his speed to his advantage as opposed to strength)).


    In addition to making him a better fighter, Galen's work with the mercenary company gave him a better sense of self. It forced him to define what his moral limits were, and how far he was willing to go for gold. Perhaps it was because of his years of having to struggle daily that he decided that he was willing to go very far.


    It paid off. Galen brought his mother a house in Alann when he was twenty-six, and the smile on her face was nothing compared to the smile on his as he saw how far she'd come from her alcoholic days. We've gone from nothing to this, using only our hard work and innate skills, he thought as he left her. She still lived alone, but Galen visited her as often as he could in between jobs. He had the mercenary company sent a fraction of his pay to her every time they finished a mission. His mother seemed happy, but he wasn't sure if it was because they finally lived comfortably, or because she'd defeated her own personal demons.


    As he neared his thirties, Galen began to ask himself a similar question. Was he happy with his life? Would he ever be happy, living the life he was living? When he turned twenty-nine, Goraq, the current leader of the mercenary company and one of Galen's closest friends, sent him to the land of Enris to look for more recruits and perhaps set up a branch of the company to lead. It was only when he arrived in the Crownlands and was searching for passage across the sea that he heard tell of a new plight in Enris. Galen had never been one to fight for people that he did not know, especially for free. The only country that he felt any semblance of alegiance to was Alann, and that might have been only because that was where his mother lived. Still, he was curious, and perhaps there was opportunity to find something that had been missing from his life.


    Although he'd become stronger by being a sellsword, and he'd made valuable friends and allies, life among the orcish mercenaries left him feeling alive while fighting and empty afterwards. He'd seen many friends seek out death in battle. Perhaps for the orcs, dying in battle was fulfilling. The more he thought about it, the more he realized that the same could not be said for him. Perhaps in Enris, Galen would find what others found in religion, or art, or magic: some type of deeper meaning or sense of accomplishment. I want to die knowing that I've accomplished something for myself, he thought as he brought himself passage upon the next ship to The Holy Land.


    What is your character's main goal?:


    If anybody were to ask him this, Galen would say that his goal is to die rich. However, on a more subconscious level, he's searching for some type of direction in his life; perhaps some stability. For example, he's fought and killed many people, and met many women, but he's never truly been in love. To put it shortly, his life as a mercenary has left him feeling as if he's missed out on a lot. He wants to experience moments that he will remember for the rest of his life, because of now, he doesn't have many.


    Strengths:


    Galen's a proficient fighter, using his mix of strength and quickness to his advantage. Because he's never been a hulking giant of a person, he's adapted his style to incorporate his height and reflexes to maximize his advantages. He has a good work ethic and is very disciplined, adn when he sets a goal for himself, he will see to it that happens. Although he might have a gruff/outright mean exterior, once he gets to know a person, he's generally amiable. This can be viewed as a weakness, but he's very honest. He speaks four languages because of his upbringing and travels, which can help with communication with other races. Finally, he began to draw when he was a child and never stopped. He's fairly talented now, and still occasionally spends his time drawing depictions of scenery and people.


    Weaknesses:


    Galen is naturally thin, meaning that if his general plan of avoiding attacks fails, he's in for a tough fight. He's not naturally charismatic (unless he's had a few drinks), and so making friends isn't his strong suit. While he is intelligent, he has a temper, and can be extremely irrational when he's angry (and sometimes when he's not). When he was 25, he broke his left leg during a mission. Although he got treatment for it, something never healed right. He does not walk with a limp, however, it's a weak spot and if he's forced to put too much weight on it, or suffers a blow to it, he will be greatly disadvantaged. It wouldn't take much for it to be broken again. He never learned to read Caro. He can read some Savage, Alanni, and most Wild Elven. Finally, he is deathly afraid of fire, although he would never admit it.


    Peronality:

    Galen is a fighter, both in the literal sense and in terms of his personality. He is not quick to give up, and is very resilient. He is definitely one to hold a grudge, and he has a quick temper. He is extremely unsympathetic to those who complain about hardships in their life. He is very independent and respects others who carry the same trait.


    Bonus Language: Wild Elven


    Traits:


    1 - Light Armor

    1 - Medium Armor

    1 - Linquist (I'm giving this to him because in addition to Caro and Wild Elven, he's learned Alanni and Savage from his life in Alann and his work with the orcs)

    1 - Simply Weapons Proficiency

    1 - Martial Weapons Proficiency

    1 - Counter 1

    1 - Fast Healer


    Talented Human Trait - Forgery (Some of his mercenary contracts required more subversive techniques. Galen found that his skill for drawing helped him learn to forge other people's signatures for the company's more stealthy members to plant).

    Gamer, earlier today i went onto the server, to which i was very dissapointed. Now, not to offend you but i was expecting a bit more, these houses could use a looot of detailing, if you wouldnt mind, when or if i get accepted a builder, i would like a rework of these houses, keeping original shape and materials, but adding much more. Again, no mean to offend you and if i did sorry, but these houses seem like amateur builds. I am very sorry if i offended you sorry, but i hope again that you take this into consideration.

    One of our builders has been handling those--I haven't been working on them or been on the server much in the past few days. If you want, you can build a house the way you want and I'll come online tomorrow to check it out. If it's a good model, then we can talk to the builder who's been handling the housing and we can make a change. To anybody else who applied, I'll review applications tomorrow as I don't have access to the server at the moment. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Intipablo, you would gain the builder rank, and possibly more depending on how skilled you are at RP/how much I trust you. Also classes don't restrict building, so at the moment, everybody is able to build.

    Also, mineghost23, you've been added.

    I'll be online later on today.

    I can let you onto the server as a builder, as those are what we need the most right now. I'm not going to choose moderators/admins right now; If anything, I'll choose them after I see which builders are the most trustworthy/can roleplay the best since our staff needs those skills. Recruiting is also a valuable skill to have, so just respond here telling me if you'd want to be a builder/recruiter and I'll whitelist you!

    Do you have experience building with medieval settings?: Yes, its what I'm most familiar with when it comes to building.




    Character Name: Sir Erik Castillon, Captain of the Guard and Protector of Carm.


    Character Race, Age & Class: Carmi, 37, Heavy-Specialist



    Description of Character:



    Sir Erik is the descendant of a line of military commanders of House Castillon. House Castillon are natives to Carm and have alway been devoted to its protection and strength. Sir Erik had always wished to follow in the footsteps of his forefathers as the sworn protector of Carm. He spent his childhood learning the ways of a knight, chivalry and honorable combat. After the death of his father, (When Erik was 30), Erik stepped up to his duty as Captain of the Guard and Protector of Carm, a title important to the welfare of the city. Now, 7 years on, the city faces a new threat, one that Erik has not been trained to deal with. How will he protect the city from the plague which sweeps across the world? The Chancellor has order citizens to stay within the city walls, but will that be enough to save the city?


    What is powergaming? Metagaming?:



    Powergaming is forcing action upon other players through emoting. For example; *Erik draws his swords and slits the man's throat before he can even move, killing him instantly* rather than, *Erik draws his sword and attempts to slash at the man's neck* whichs gives the other player to respond.



    Metagaming is using knowledge or information know to the player OOC, IC to benefit his/her character, for example if someone's character runs away whenever they see a certain player, because they know OOC that the playerthey are avoiding is a thief IC.
