InfamousDasher and I have completed our applications! I was keeping tabs on all of the questions you were asking people in this thread as we were crafting our bios, and was inspired to create a collaborative scene with her that answers all of them in character, while also providing role-play sample! Those that I felt we answered in our regular bios we omit, but I think you will find each of the topics in the dinner date were all reflective of your requested information.

That's pretty awesome, thanks for putting the table together

My application is pretty much done, I'm just getting it proofread currently. I want it to look good
Hopefully it should be ready by tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

Man, I wish I know of an artistic person, searching for the right picture for a very specific character isn't easy.

Neat table though, feels more organized then the one on the front page.

Tell me, was she taught the blade or did she just know instinctively how to use one?

and a fun question: Amphitrite is at a masquerade ball with all the kingdom's aristocrats. She recognizes them, but they don't recognize her or each other. Who does she follow and why?

I'm very impressed, you really seem to know what your characters are about!

What are Mistral and Marl's greatest fears? and if they asked each other that question would they answer truthfully?
Did either of them have a favorite toy growing up?

Thank you so much for the table, It was so kind of you.

Theore - Very nice table, I like that it links directly to the application post itself (usually these tables are not quite that intensive.) - System won't let me give you reputation again for a while, so... but you deserve some!

I added "Chapter 1" which describes her going through training at the Ministry of Shadows; an intelligence guild that trains James Bond types. From there she would have learned how to evaluate the worth of objects, how to poison, how to assassinate, self defense classes, etcetera.

However, I also made sure she flunked out - because who wants an assassin that might fall in love with her target? Or a thief that decides she wants to keep the pretty crown jewels for herself? at least if working for the Crown, eh?

I also added a "Chapter 2" to go more into her interactions with the world, her thought processes, etcetera. It is more "backstory" than RP, even though there is a little RP in it.

Chapter 2 also lends credibility as to why the King would send such an individual to accompany his daughter on a journey; as opposed to a grizzled old veteran. While both can be trusted, one would be much easier to dismiss by enemies until too late as not a threat, and has proven loyalty.

Regarding "Amphitrite is at a masquerade ball with all the kingdom's aristocrats. She recognizes them, but they don't recognize her or each other. Who does she follow and why?" that is an interesting idea.

Firstly, Amphitrite probably would not consciously target an individual to follow. She is above all a social creature, as such, she would attempt to infiltrate herself into a group of individuals who are having a lively discussion and seem to be enjoying themselves. (Unless ordered otherwise - even then, I'd give it 60/40% chance she'd get distracted anyway.)

Secondly, given this is a masquerade ball filled with aristocrats, she'd be marveled by the magic decorations, the sparkling dresses, the handsome men in various uniforms, the mundane decorations too (one would be amazed what a skilled artisan can do with paper!).

As such, your answer is probably going to be along the lines of a woman who flits between groups of individuals, attempting to enjoy all the conversations, throwing out flattery like it was going out of style, drinking in all the gossip she can, but ultimately - she'd be following someone in the third rung of society in such an event. (King's family would be first rung; nobles would be second rung; knights, advisers, dignitaries would be third rung; etcetera)

Thanks you guys! I'm glad you liked it. I'll likely get bored and tidy it up some later too.

@Jennifer: I do love my rpxp - just remember me when you can give it again

Updated her bio pieces lol

Her favorite toy would've been a fake princess tiara that she could play dress up in while she spent most of her childhood days stuck in her room~

Her fear is basically abandonment. Being left alone so much as a kid/young adult, and abandoned by her mother, she doesn't want to be alone again. She would be honest about it, but relatively reluctant to admit that she doesn't like to be alone.

@fancyjellyfish

Marl's greatest fear (minus accidentally crushing things underfoot as was pointed out in the collaboration :P) would be to upset the earthen spirits. His ancestors of his subclass are being flavored not as past goliaths (though I might throw that in from time to time), but more the actual essences of the earth itself, so to dishonor them would bring him immense displeasure.

He would be honest about this fear, and pretty much anything else. He lacks both the skill and desire to lie effectively.

As far as a favorite toy goes? Hmm. He didn't have a lot of time to play due to the high expectations placed on him - which is already pretty high for anyone else in the tribes as well. To function, everyone must pull their weight - as much as you can for that matter. With him also having a tremendous birthright, that weight was only heightened. With all of this in mind, play largely involved things like sparring with wooden toys, wrestling, and other fun activities that served a dual purpose: aiding in sharpening their survival skills. He may have had a favorite walking stick or staff, but had outgrown it's size long ago.

On that note, were we required to roll for our trinkets, or were we free to choose?

That’s probably a good question... I chose my trinket to fit into Woodwind’s backstory, but if we have to roll for it, I can try and make up its significance on the fly.

I imagine it is being left up to our discretion since so far jelly seems to like the trinket stuff you guys have come up with.

Table v2.0 is up! My next goal is having the character sheets that have been provided linked. Getting back into practice using the website code stuff. It's also helping me pass the time in between getting into some games after my year hiatus.
