APPLICATION FOR:  Sidil “Tiptoes” K. Lochley

 

OOC Information –

 

For starters, I’m a HUGE RP fan and have been playing RP games of some sort or another since I was a child.  This love for RP got me into writing where in WoW, my guild came up with the goal to develop story-based RP/PvP server events.  It was a ton of fun!  For that reason, I ended up being a GM for about two years and eventually branched out into other games with the same basic idea.

For the technical info, I have Discord though I rarely use it these days. For time zone, I’m on EST and will typically be online after 8:00pm each night. 

As for MMO experience, I’ve played just about every role but tend to gravitate towards a tank.  For BDO, I’ve chosen to try something completely different and play as a Witch.  My character is actually from a story I was writing that after publishing a small portion, several people emailed me how much they liked the character and asked me to do more with her.  At the time, she was a secondary character with little importance but in developing her more, I just couldn’t not RP her in this game.  Besides, it’s good to sometimes break away from a comfort zone and try something new.

As for the rest of the questions, I’ll give a brief overview of Sidil and then simply add a short RP of her intro into the world of BDO.

Sidil, while being an elf, stands only about 5’5” which is why she was nicknamed “Tiptoes” at a very early age.  Quite simply, she so short that she was often forced to stand on her toes in order to see much of anything around her home town.  In addition to her height, Sidil is very small framed, keeps her hair in an often off-kempt style, and for some strange reason, usually dyes it blue.  She is free-spirited, overly blunt, and commonly comes up with the most unusual and crazy ideas to solve whatever problem she faces.  Strangely enough, they work in most cases.  She has no inhibitions and often speaks before she thinks.  

 

RP Introduction – Crimson Sails

Fl2ciYg.jpg

 

PORT OF VELIA – 2340hrs

 

The cool breeze that normally blew in from the north was absent, torn and replaced by an unnatural dry warmth.  The heat though, drew little notice by the common fishers and sailors of Velia as they watched the flames grow on the horizon.  They had heard the explosion, felt the sounding blast tear across the open waters.  It was the unmistakable cry of death – the final plea for mercy known only by those who had lived the war of the sea. 

A great and mighty warship had died.

 

SYREEN STRONGHOLD – 0127hrs

 

“Sir, the Maria Gaile has been engaged and destroyed as ordered.  None survived.”

The General sat at his desk and gave no physical response to the report of his most trusted commander.  His voice, calm, determined and demanding an undeniable presence.  He was the right hand of the Lord Marshal and chief among the Striders.  Above all, he knew the fullest extent of the plan.

“Are you certain of your statement Commander Tomlin?  There can be no room for errors in this late hour.  So precarious is our chance of victory.  The slightest of whispers can turn the outcome of this war.”

“My Lord Matthias, we executed the crew, then set afire to the powder storage.  I can assure you, we left none alive.”

The General paused for several long moments.  “So be it then.  Order the fleet to set sail for Calpheon.  The time has come.”

Commander Tomlin bowed before the General, “Aye.”

 

 PORT OF VELIA – 0535hrs

 

The small fishing boat stirred cautiously through the waters as the rising sun began to break across the horizon.  The scene of death and carnage spread all across the surface of the water as the remaining fragments of the once proud Maria Gaille crumbled and broke apart.  Her crew, lost forever in the black depths of the sea.

“THERE, that one looks like she’s still alive!”

“Yup, I see her.  Good eye!”

With a swift effort, the small crew of sailors pulled the floating crate towards the boat.  Inside was the battered, yet barely conscious body of a blue-haired Elf.  With an explosion of that size, how could it have been possible for her to survive?  

“Miss, can you hear me?  He wiped away the blood from her face as she desperately tried to recollect his voice.  “What’s yer name lass?”

She choked for a brief moment, and drew in a long, pain-filled gaze into his eyes, “I, I don’t know.”

Nice! There's no life like being shipwrecked! Of course, there's shipwrecked, and then there's shiprekt!
Like, fighting a sea monster with a sword, balancing on top of a floating crate in the middle of the open ocean in the maelstrom of a storm. That - is proper shiprekt!

---------------
*In Character*

--------------

*A unusually tall man strode across the pier as if he owned it, drumming against the planks with the clacking and knocking of steel sabatons atop heavy leather boots. He breached the crowd collected by the docks, and shoved his way through, moving people out of the way, to take a look at what the sailors pulled out. Most got out of his way, having recognized either the man himself, or simply out of common sense, seeing him being clad in full plate armor, and gave him room. A few of the more brawny kind contested their right to stand where they were and shoved back, to be promptly removed with a shoulder grab by a steel gauntlet. He was muscular, almost 7 feet tall, with a set of western transitional plate upon him, and a crest on his chest with a black bird of spread wings, talons ready for attack, depicted in descent, on the background of blood and grey smoke. The same crest was embroidered on his black cloak. Although his armor was no doubt high quality and very expensive, despite badly beat up, he wore no surcoat and no knightly belt, indicating that he is not a knight or otherwise a noble, but a wealthy man at arms. He did however, wear a chest sash of a military commander, indicating a rank.*

"Out of my way." - the armored man grunted. For a few moments he watched the ongoings, and tried to not lose track of the rescued person.

You haven't lived life until you've battled a sea monster with a greatsword, balancing on a floating crate in the middle of a storm in open ocean, having survived a shipwreck!

RP Update:

*Konrad sits down in his office and slowly, carefully, spells the report line by line in the company books. The large hand struggles with the quill, shaking fingers handling the writing implement with more tension than a sword. He writes very slowly, but does so correctly, checking grammar for references in other books. Never a master of spelling and certainly a novice at punctuation, he takes a long time cross referencing books, having some difficulty reading at times. But he is patient and eventually produces a complete and correctly written report on the first try, without cross-outs or blotches.*

Following a successful performance through the past 3 months, the Company closes its second fiscal quarter with the following profits and total budget.
