Character Sheet
Name: Alleairam
Advanced Class: Seer
RP Title: SWTOR

PostSubject: Alleairam's Application (Approved)   Fri Jul 15, 2011 2:36 am

Character Name (this will be your name on the
site and forums):*

Alleairam

2a. Primary Class (Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight,
Smuggler, or Trooper):*

Jedi Consular

2b. Advanced Class (if decided):*
Sage/Seer

3. Please describe your knowledge of Star Wars? The
more detailed the better, please: *

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
well, not too far away, I had the pleasure of being the first in line to see
Star Wars (Episode IV) at our local theaters. I was only twelve back in
1977, but I was taken in, hook, line and sinker!

I became quite the addict, gathering as much Star Wars paraphernalia as my
meager allowance would buy. My favorite being the extensive blueprints of
R2D2. I continued the tradition, lining up early enough to be first for
Episode V and Episode VI as well.

By the time Episodes I, II, and III were released, I had children of my own to
bring into the saga. Although not as up to date on everything in the Star
Wars universe as I was at that age, I am still fairly knowledgeable about the
entire story line, from the chronological discovery of young Anakin Sywalker,
in Episode I to his redemption in Episode VI.


4. Please tell us about your other guild/MMO
experiences. If there is more than one guild/experience, please include all of
them. If you left your last guild, please tell us why you decided to leave. If
you have used more than one name, please list them all.*

If accepted, this would be my first guild
experience. My brother and I usually play many MMOs together, but I do not
believe he will be joining in this one. I figured this would be a perfect
opportunity to try joining a guild.

I have played World of Warcraft, Rift, Eve, and City of Heroes/Villains, as
well as many non-MMOs, too numerous to list. I primarily prefer playing
support characters/archetypes/classes, and will often join groups if I am
fortunate to have my dear spouse take my children elsewhere, but if I feel I do
not have a good block of uninterrupted time, i usually stick with solo play.


5. What type of role do you wish to take within the
guild? How do you plan to be active? Please be specific.*

I work from home, and at night. This allows
for fairly consistent play time and duration. I am an extremely patient
player. I have no interest in power leveling, or rising through the ranks
of a guild at some exponential rate. I would take whatever role was
granted, and be an example to others of what it takes to eat, drink, and
breathe that role until my masters felt I had earned a promotion. As the
old saying goes, not everyone can be a chief, you have got to have some
indians.


6. Why do you feel the Army of Light is a good fit
for you?*

From what little research I have done, this guild
appears to exude both organization and maturity. If I want to spend all
my time playing with whining children, I would play with my own. (Although they
don't whine like the online gamers I seem to encounter all too often). I
tend to gravitate to the good or heroic factions, and this guild just stood out
to me.


7. What do you expect of the guild? Please be
specific.*

I expect the guild to understand that while I will
truly do my best to be active, and uphold the duties of my rank, and follow the
teachings of my masters, that I do have a real life which will always take
priority of gaming. I will not tell my children that I cannot help them
with their homework because I am in the middle of a raid, as an example.


8. Age* (Must be 16+):
At the time of this writing, I am 46 years of age.

9. Time Zone:*
GMT - 5 (EST)

10.Role-Play experience/expectations. Can you give
us some examples of Role-Playing you have participated in before. When it comes
to expectations, give us an example of what would be fun to participate in,
what you are looking for, etc.*

My preference in role-playing is tabletop
RPs. I was playing AD&D when it was just D&D, and in its 1st
edition. I can make the adjustment to online RP of course, and once in
character, will remain there for as long as need be, or until RL calls me
away. I enjoy role-playing mostly when others are disciplined enough not
to allow non-universal slang and other such dialogue to slip in.


11. How can you benefit and help the guild? Please
include any skills or talents you have that you would enjoy doing within the
guild. How have you helped your previous guild(s), if you have previous
experience?*

One problem I have always had in other MMO's has to
do with games that have an element of crafting in them. What good is it
to become a master of a craft, and have no one to craft for? As a member
of a guild, i would look forward to performing task which the guild feels are
necessary. To me, it is simply a new element to a game that I would not
be able to otherwise enjoy. I usually solo craft, quest, hunt, or
whatever, but now, as part of a guild, additional avenues of playing enjoyment
would be open to me.


12. How do you define a quality member?*
Simply put, a quality member is one who goes above
and beyond to fulfill the duties asked for by the guild. In other words,
if role-playing is requested, then play in character. If activity is
requested, then be active. If asked to assist others of lower level or
rank, then do so with enthusiasm! Don't take from the guild without
giving back.


13. How did you find the Army of Light? Did someone
recruit you? If so, please let us know who.*

Guild searching. I was not referred.

14a.Have you visited our website and chat room, and
familiarized yourself with the, Charter, Mission Statement, and Rules of
Conduct? (You must answer in the affirmative and please prove that you have)*

Yes.

14b. Do you pledge to fulfill them, most notably to
uphold the virtues of Maturity, Honor, Respect, Personal Ethics and No Drama?*

Yes.

14c. The Army of Light wishes to have members who
take the concept of Commitment and Loyalty very seriously. By applying and if
accepted, you are taking an Oath to both the guild and your guild-mates here.
Is this something to which you can commit?

Yes.

15. Would you say that you embody the qualities of
Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity? What are your definitions of these four
words? Please don’t just answer yes or no, let us know why you think you
possess these qualities.*

It would be better for my children to answer this
question. How does one become a successful parent without instilling in
their children the true meaning of Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity, as
well as a host of other traits, like Integrity, Assertiveness, and so on.
To try and capture this in such a short amount of space is nearly impossible.


16. Tell us about a time you offered assistance to
someone who did not ask for it but clearly needed it. If you have never had
this experience, tell us what you would do if faced with that situation?

I do this on a daily basis. In fact, this
question is closely coupled with the previous question. I demonstrate the
qualities listed previously by showing respect to everyone I meet or work
with. I honor and respect and am loyal to those who earn it.



17. Role-play Scenario (please tell us how you
would handle the situation): You are leading a group of 3 others through a
forest on a remote moon to destroy an enemy communications relay. Up ahead in a
clearing, you happen to spot a small Sith camp. Your group has not yet been
spotted by the enemy. You are reasonably well supplied for your mission,
including armaments. The clearing containing the Sith camp is not necessarily
in your direct path to reach your original mission objective. Attacking the
camp could alert the guards at the relay. However, attacking the relay without
first dealing with the camp could mean enemy reinforcements from the camp. What
do you do?

Based on the few details of the scenario presented,
I would assume if my team is capable of taking out a relay station, then we
would also be able to handle a small Sith camp. Bypassing the camp would
be a mistake. We wouldn't want to risk fighting on two fronts or facing
reinforcements that we had a chance to not have called down on our
position. We also wouldn't want other teams in the area to run into a small
camp we should have wiped out on our own. The correct move would be to
remove the threat at the camp, at the risk of alerting the relay station.


18. In more than 50 but less than 200 words, please
describe your personal character and the type of person you are (We wish to get
a good feel of the type of person that will be becoming a part of our guild
family - a very important question!)*

I am a hard working individual, meticulous to a
fault, and always eager to assist others. I am exceedingly patient, which
means you would be getting someone who finds joy in helping others. I am
respected both at and away from work for the integrity of my personal
character. People know what I stand for and know they can count on me to
stand up for what I believe in. But, the most important thing to me is my
family loves me for who I am, and nothing is more important to me than that.


19. Tell us a little about your in-game character*
-Character Name: Alleairam Ynoxsom
-Character Physical/Mental Features: Although I am leaning towards a female character, until I
have a greater feel for the character generation in the game, this is tough to
comment on. In many games, I play either gender, any race, and am willing
to try most character archetypes, preferring the support roles most. So,
I imagine my physical/mental traits would demonstrate this.

-Character Biography: At this time, I will list the major milestones in my
timeline, choosing to reveal the details over time.


My father, Oinger Ynoxsom was a space trader along the Hydian Way, transporting goods from the colonies on the rim into the core worlds. My mother died during complications of childbirth of my younger sister, Elibag. It was a fairly boring life, spending most of my time with my younger sister aboard our small ship. We often flew the trade lanes alone, or in
small convoys for additional protection.


Unfortunately, at Age 6, our convoy was captured by the Mandalorians. (From a Galactic Timeline perspective, this was around BTC 14 when the Mandalorians started to grow again in power.)

My father was forced to join their navy, as were most seasoned pilots, and my sister and I were placed with a foster family aboard a medical frigate. Families were separated to break children’s spirit, and ease the bonding of the children to the new foster families. I never saw my Father again.

For the next seven years, Eli and I were raised as Mandalorians, learning their ways. We were both taught to fight as all the children were, but poor Eli never really took to it like I did. Writing was her love, and she showed more of an affinity with the scholars and historians. For me, it was all about the gladiatorial combats.

It was during this period that my first signs of the force began to emerge, but I kept this knowledge hidden from everyone including my sister. The Mandalorians felt I simply had a way with healing. Bones seemed to knit back together better and stronger. Cuts, bruises and abrasions faded more quickly under my care, but they never suspected this may have been a result of my use of the Force.

In BTC 7, at Age 13, the Mandalorian Blockade was broken. Eli and I were rescued, if it could be called that, by the smugglers. The freedom was short-lived, as the Hutt Cartel took vengeance on the double-crossing smuggler’s, and wiped many of them out. Eli escaped to Alderaan, but I was taken by the Hutt Cartel to Tatooine, to continue working as a medic both on Tatooine, and aboard ships traveling back and forth to Nar Shaddaa.

Over the next five years, I was exposed to a world of organized crime and smuggling, and the seeds of escape were
planted.


Finally, at Age 20 (BTC 0), I was able to stow away aboard a colony ship bound for Taris, and now am assisting with the
efforts to once again colonize the planet 300 years after the Sith destroyed it.


(It is at this point that I
imagine I will begin my adventures in SWTOR)


20. What is your registered user name on
swtor.com?* (Please note that you should have applied at our Guild HQ as a part
of this Application process by this point.)

BlackPlagueTM (a name I have used for years based
on the board game Risk, but that is a story for another time.)
