Hello everyone, I'm not going to waste your time with a boring essay. Without further ado....
● Have you roleplayed before? If so, where? If you have, how long have you been roleplaying for?
I've been doing so off-and-on for a long time now. I started out pretty young, actually, with Star Wars roleplays. Eventually I moved on to a place called Age of Intrigue, which was a historical rpg set in the late seventeeth century. As I grew as a person, I did fall out of touch with my characters, and that is primarily why I haven't been roleplaying as much for the past year.
● Do you have any nicknames you go by? Is there a name you prefer people to call you?
In many online communities, I have went by "Azarias" in the hopes to maintain a level of anonymity. But it's been more trouble than it's worth, so you guys can just call me Garrett.
● What are some of your most favorite characters you've made? They can be from MMORPGs, Video Games, etc.
I'm a HUGE fan of Bioware games, primarily because the worlds they create are so immersive, and allow me to really get inside of my characters' heads. It's hard to pick out a favorite, however, but I really enjoyed playing Dragon Age Inquisition as an ambitious mage. Basically, my every decision was based on creating a world just unstable enough to where my character would be able to keep a grip on political power.

More recently, I played through Mass Effect with a character with a good heart but ruthless temperament. She made the decisions that everyone else was too afraid to make. But it cost her dearly; though her decisions saved the lives of many, they caused the deaths of those closest to her.
● Is there anything you're excited about when it comes to the Standing Trials RP? Anything that you're concerned with?
I'm really excited to delve into the mysteries of your world. Specifically, I'm thinking of the relationships between Arcana and the deaths of the Immortals.

As far as concerns go, I'm a little worried about managing my character's introduction. I enjoy taking the initiative as much as the next guy, but if I may speak candidly, this is a bit of an unfamiliar enviroment to me. In particular, I am not quite sure how to go about establishing pre-existing relationships between the npcs and my character.

Is my character basically walking into a city alone? Or I will have pre-exiting ties to manage? I'm not quite sure if I'm explaining myself well, but hopefully someone understands what I mean.

That being said, I'm sure I'll end up getting a good feel for everything soon enough.
● Do you consider yourself skilled in something (Art for example), if so, what is it? Do you have a favorite hobby besides RPing?
I'm fairly comptenent with all things related to information technology. As far as hobbies go, I'm a gamer. I enjoy reading and learning, though I have not read a good fictional book in some time. I also have a certain fascination with the nuances of historic cultures.
● What is something unique about you?
I'm actually a thesaurus that's masquerading as a person. Just don't tell anyone.

I know I haven't been able to say hello to you yet but since you've got a post up, let me finally say hi!

I go by Jade or Nicole, either one I'll respond to, and I'm one of the Narrators on the site. I'm glad to see that you've got a major interest in games. One of our other narrators, Basilisk, loves games and does Lets Play for them. You two should get together and see what craziness you can come up with lol.

As far as the game goes, you've asked a lot of interesting questions that I didn't think about when helping the others build this site. It's perfectly fine to question everything because not too many role plays have the kind of game system we do. I'll just address something that I saw in the site chat after you were gone and just to kind of reiterate what Basilisk said about time within the story. We are in the season of ymiden. That means that there are 83 days that your character can role play in this season and you can choose any day at any time. Just like Bas said, if it's the 1st of June in our would but you want to role play the last day of Ymiden, you can do that. However, you cannot do future threads that occur within upcoming seasons. So say if you want to do a thread that takes place 2 seasons from now, that won't be possible. It's not allowed. However, if you wanted to do something we call a "memory" thread, where you role play in the past, something that is not in the current, present season and/or arc, then you could do that.

Also, it's completely up to you what relationships you want to have per established with npcs. If you want to have relationships established with city npcs, that's fine. Or if you want to create your own, that's okay too. Just remember that all NPCs must go through the narrator support desk for approval. This is a giant, sandbox world that leaves a lot open for players to create. Just ask for permission if you want to do something with your character and we'll see if we can make it happen. :)

It's wonderful to meet you and don't be afraid to send me a PM if you have anymore questions or concerns!!

It's a pleasure to meet you Jade. :)

And thank you for the clarification on the timeline and NPC system. It's clear that you guys put a lot of thought into creating the world of Standing Trials. I'll almost certainly have further questions, but for the moment I think I have what I need to get to work on a preliminary character sheet.

PS. I hope you guys will keep doing the livestreams. I really enjoyed watching them!
