    Uhm.... Yeah. Don't exactly know what is happening here? It says I'm flagging it as spam and now it won't let me edit anything? Uhmmm... Don't know what I need to do. My app keeps appearing as spam I guess. Spam isn't even that tasty.

    Don't know why my app was flagged as spam? It was right away apparently.

    That's alright. I'll repost is below:

    ----OOC Info----

    -Minecraft IGN:

    -Skype name (Optional, for server OOC chat): N/A

    -Do you have any prior roleplay-related experience, if so could you give an example? Yes, I have been hardcore roleplaying for two years now. I've played on various servers including, Legend of Aelryth/Alvaeron/Elnion, Age of Adventures, and Project Horizon. Before that, I played other semi-hardcore roleplay servers for around six months.

    -Define Power-gaming in your own words: Power-gaming in roleplay happens when one party performs an act that is specifically gives no reaction opportunity to the other party unless there is a logical in-character reason for this an example being that the other party in unconscious. If Bob is in sword fight with his brother Billy Bob (because Billy Bob refused to take out the trash) and Bob emotes the following "Bob swings his sword upon Billy Bob's right knee sheering a clean cut and bringing Billy Bob to the ground." which gives Billy Bob no chance to block or dodge his attack, then Bob would be power-gaming.

    -Define Meta-gaming in your own words: Meta-gaming in roleplay is when one party performs an act using information learned in some out-of-character form. If Bob is off adventuring without his brother, Billy Bob, (because Billy Bob took an arrow to his knee) and during his travels is surrounded by the vicious Robert Robber Bandits and then procedes to out-of-character message all his Bobby brothers to save him and they came, then the Bobby brothers would be meta-gaming.

    -Define Role-Playing in your own words: Role-playing is the act of one person playing the role of another person in a fictional sense, often for recreational work. If Bob is a role-play character and Robert Childan acts for him, then Robert Childan is role-playing.

    ----IC Info----
    -Character name: Taurith(Taur) Violetti

    -Character race: High-Elf

    -Character gender: Male

    -Character age: 76

    -Character Occupation: Mineral Collector (also known as a miner)

    -Character description:

    ~A small group of dwarves sit around a lantern in a remote part of the cave eating one of the lunches their wives packed for them. At the same time, a man begins to approach appearing to be the tallest thing in the mine besides the ceiling. At every low bearing beam he must duck under what would be feet above the dwarves' heads. As he got closer the tall man begin to produce a chinking and jingling sound as a variety of small bags tied to his belt or shoulder pad bumped into one another. Presumably, those bags would be for sorting small amounts of precious gems and stones. The light flushed on his slightly dirtied, but well-kept face and two dark lines protruded from underneath his eyes. The lines are the color of dark black coal and are probably just that. His hair is the brightest and cleanest thing about him. Two strands fall on the sides of his face imitating sideburns and the rest is brought back into a raised ponytail. His chin is extended by a small, yet full pointed blonde gotee. He wears a think tan scarf around his neck like ones used by humans in the mines to filter out the bad air. The rest of his clothing is dark though, black tunic, and black pants. The seven foot man approaches the group his right slightly muscular arms rests on the handle of an stone iron-tipped pick that rests into his shoulder pad. His deep blue eyes, his speckled orange eyes (freckles) and his crescent moon scar on under his right eye stared at the dwarves. His long elvish ears wiggled and he muttered "'Ello."

    -Character personality and traits:

    Some may say that Taur seems like a quiet person, but in reality he just isn't inclined to talk. He doesn't find small talk necessary nor is it appealing. One wouldn't find Taur making much conversation, but instead getting his work done. He has a drive for his work, probably because it constitutes all he has. Taur isn't very sentimental though. He isn't extremely attached to material, but he does value people. Although he may come off as abrasive he does enjoy time with friends and values the ones he loves. His friends are mostly just his bar buddies some of which work in the mines as well. They are all people who just decided to treat him with kindness nothing special. He also doesn't discriminate although, he does believe people are made and built better than others, but this isn't a racial thing to him. His respect is measured by how much he acknowledges you and not by calling one sire or sir which is just a adage he has.

    -Character biography:

    It was on a normal day in Silivrenmîr that Taur was born. The day was bland there was nothing particularly bad or good, beautiful or ugly, interesting or dull, about it and the day really represents the person it brought. Taur was a bubbly baby as in bubbles came out of his nose. He was a healthy baby, but a sick baby. He always had a runny nose when he was little for around a year until The Pact War came. When The Pact War came his mother's hope that Taur would have a true elvish education faltered (not that his family could afford it anyways). Taurith's father was a warrior, but only stayed at the entry-level position because he owed his captain money. His father luckily stayed home and manned the walls because of this though. Taurith's mother came from a rich family, but she fell for Taur's father when she was young and disobeyed her parents which lead to them disowning her. Taur's mother couldn't of been happier being with Taur's father though.

    Again, The Pact War had came and eventually the family's happiness would be thwarted. When Taur was around ten The Pact sacked Silivrenmir and Taur and his mother were forced to evacuate. His father died fighting The Pact and his mother told him so did his grandparents (even though later he would find out that they survived, but his mother couldn't and didn't to go back to them). Taur never asked about them knowing they never wanted him to exist. He doesn't even know his mother's maiden name. While they were evacuating a number of humans soldiers followed them to protect them. They were put to use when an orcish calvary unit came to raid the refugees of their possessions. The horse backed orcs rode straight into the brigade. One of them rode with his sword lowered to cut the elves below him. The sword nearly missed Taur and his mother, but left a nasty cut on his cheek that would scar. One of the humans instantly came to guard Taur's mother and Taur. Taur's mother saw this man as courageous and gave him credit for their lives. She kept in touch with the man once Taur and his mother arrived in Barkemsted and eventually she fell in love with him and married. He was a respectable warrior and respected his mother so Taur really had know problem with it even though he believed his father was still alive. His mother gave birth to a half-elf named Terin. Terin was more human than elf it seemed and fit in a lot more than Taur in Barkemsted. Taur didn't desire time with human children and no elf would go near so he often stayed home doing chores for his mother or letting her teach him to read and write elvish and common. Taur loved his mother mor than anyone else because she cared for him. Taur never really got to know his step-father he was always gone in battle.

    When he grew up Taur had no desire for war unlike his half-brother who immeaditely enlisted in the army. Taur stayed with his mother and helped run her little bakery. He was never much of a cook though and so he became a waiter a job he hated. So, when there was a big push for helping the war effort Taurith signed up to be a miner. Taur quickly learned the techniques of mining and what each type of mineral was and what it was used for, but took awhile to develop the muscles to swing a pickaxe. He managed though and has been mining since that date. He hasn't made much money, but then again everyone no fighting was mining or lumberjacking so there was lots of competition. When mining Taur developed his habit to go out for a drink and developed his accent. Taur enjoys what he does and works fairly hard especially since he isn't caring for his sick mother anymore after her passing. Her death was the only one that has caused Taurith significant pain. Not his brother's or fathers' deaths. His mother gave him time and that meant a lot to him. So live ro make her proud is what Taur says and he has been working hard since not trying to end it in a demon war, etc..

    -Please give us a short RP response to these two scenarios. :

    You’re walking around the markets at around noon. There’s a lot of people around you, still gathering their items as they prepare to shut down their many stands. Suddenly you feel a gentle lifting of your coin purse as a child graces you and soon after they take off sprinting. You have been robbed.

    After swiftly turning around Taurith arches his brow curious about himself putting anything in his pocket and not in one of the pouches that are tied to him by rope. Remember he left his overflow coin purse in his pocket Taurith chuckles turning around counting on one hand how many coins were in there. Won't make that mistake again he thought to himself. He would abruptly check his other pouches hoping that the boy wasn't able to sneak anything else. Not wanting to have any small talk with the dimwit guard stationed in the market square today Taurith continues on his wasy right up to the precious stone vendor.

    You’re heading back to the city through the woods when you hear a whining coming from nearby. Upon further investigation you come across a grey-coloured wolf that appears to have its leg caught in a bear trap. Around it is three smaller lumps of fur, obviously puppies belonging to the trapped mother. Without help, they’ll all die, but wolf skins are quite valuable too, not to mention that the nearby farms suffer quite a bit from the wolf population.

    Taurith would let out a long sigh after seeing the trap intended for a bear inflicting so much pain to the poor animal. He knows it's all natural for a wolf to die, but never with so much pain. Taur sometimes wished that one day the hunters will get caught in their own traps. Yet, Taurith thought that a wolves teeth are like a bear trap themselves causing so much pain to the sheep. Is it just then that the hunters get trapped in their own trap then? He looks at the little pups and then the mother thinking A mother doesn't deserve this. His thoughts go back to his own mother and how she cared for him and how he loved her so much. Out of that fact alone Taur decided to release the mother and her pups walking back along the path thinking of his mother.


    -Magic Biography; Explain the reason you want your character to have magic through backstory application: (At least three extremely well-crafted paragraphs. You must describe to us why your character can use magic, what drives him to further his ability, how he learned that he could use magic, and what benefits magic brings to this character, what type of magic they’ll strive to use, etc. This is not a middle school paper! I will not accept applications that say “My character got my magic from x, and he wants to use it because it’ll help him! Also for RP!")

    Taur has absolutely no magic experience at all. He knows that most High Elves have magical capabilities, but he is the kind of person that will let the cards fall into his hands. He remembers as a kid his mother telling him stories of the three elemental elves. He was always fascinated by the stories of the elvish knights fighting dragons using the powers of nature, fire, and ice and distracted him from the war going on around him as a boy. It was the only game he would ever play with his brother. he never has had the opportunity to test himself though he concludes he probably has the capability. In fact, the only thing his mother ever told him about her family was that they had magical capability and their ancestors had been mages. Taur liked to think they were the three elementals when he was a boy.

    Taur has never met or seen an actual mage just the traveling "magician" that existed in the early days of The Pact War. Although, Taur fantasized being a fire mage when he was little. Now though, he thinks it would be pretty useful. He imagines lighting a lantern with his forefinger and his thumb or even just to watch the flame float above his thumb with just a flick. He also likes to imagine how threatening it would be. Even if he couldn't do much he could scare a person with a flame easy. Taur has thought about magic, but he has never tried it. He thinks it one way to make his mother proud or maybe he wants to be proud of his heritage.

    -Please give an example in your own words describing the limitations placed upon those who use magic (This should be at least one well-crafted paragraph):

    Though there are physical limitations of a mage a mage's biggest limitation comes from the source of their power itself, their trinket. Their trinket's power is what limits a mage. If a mage tries to channel more through the trinket than the trinket can hold then the trinket will fail and explode. Additionally a mage must put a lot of work into channeling power through a trinket. A mage must put a lot of time into a trinket meditating and learning it's capabilities. If a mage tries to channel more power than they physically can take then they can expend themselves and physically hurt themselves or even kill themselves if too much power channels through the body. All mages must be careful too because mages aren't immune to the magic they wield and can physically hurt themselves when channeling even the smallest amount of magic.

    -Please give a description of the magic system in your own words:

    The magic system of Saphriel is unique being a mage can' cast a spell or channel magical energy without the use of a trinket. These trinkets range in power too. A mage can cast only so much through one trinket before having to get a stronger one. One trinket might only wield the tiniest flame while another might let a mage cast a giant fireball. Trinkets also come in many different forms each providing only one aspect power. Aspects can range of anything from fire and other elements to dark and light magic. Also how much power one can channel through a trinket or artifact is dependent on the experience of the mage. If a mage is more experienced then he can do more with a trinket.

    -You are given a weak trinket of flame, you haven't had much practice with magic yet, but you will try your best. Describe some things you could/would do with this trinket:

    Taur would stare at the weak trinket before standing from the barstool to ask the mysterious old man who gave him it to look at some questions about it. Seeing the man disappeared Taur walks into the street waving off the bartender saying "I'll pay my tab next week, I promise or you can double charge my ****." before the bartender could open her mouth. Looking around the street Taurith sighs as he just misses the old man walking into an alley. He would continue on his walk and after not finding the man he heads to the market square to see what he could get for the red gemstone trinket. The precious stone vendor just looked at Taur exclaiming at him.
    "I can't take this, you ****. What if it a dark-y magic-y thing-y? I could get arrested, eh. Feck off son."
    Taur would sigh "Your lost, ****!" He would walk off not happy with the vendor ever. Not knowing where to take it Taur takes it home. At home he investigates the peculiar thing. It is a transparent red crystal attached to a broken gold chain. It's attach by etched gold clamp. Nothing Special he thinks. Taur sits on the ground with it thinking. What am I supposed to do meditate? He tries this for only like a few minutes before giving up.
    "Maybe I'll check out the Mage's Guild 'morrow..." he mutters before heading to bed after putting the trinket into one of his pouches.

    Side Note:
    I have no intention for him to start with any magic ability or even an aspect. I just want Taur to have the capability.
