Out of Character Information IGN: Sygnus_ How did you learn of The Crossroads?: Mystery invited me to build stuff. Discord: Sygnus_#1161 Your Age: 23 Describe the server in your own words: Crossroads a roleplay server that uses minecraft as a medium that uses Tabletop Roleplaying style, where players roleplay through speech. Unlike most roleplay servers that use minecraft, Crossroads is meant solely for a DND like roleplay that doesn't focus on PVP or nation building, but rather an adventure with a group in a dynamic storyline. You agree to the rules of the server, including that you cannot start conflict with other player characters without their out-of-character consent: Yes. In Character Information Character Name: Otello "The Hatchet" Bucknell Character Age: 38 Character Race: Human What does your character look like in 3-5 sentences: Otello is a 6’1” human. He has an average man build with broad shoulders and while he may not be athletic, he is still healthy with a fit body that can take a beating. Otello had brown hair, but as he got older it started to become a mix between gray and brown, so now he mainly styles it somewhat similar to a combover. This man also has dark blue eyes, a prominent mustache, and rough skin. His skin tone is also a darker shade of white. Otello proudly wears his bartender garbs, complete with a half apron tied to his waist, rolled up sleeves, bow tie, and a pair of worn leather boots. Lastly, this man can almost always be found with an old hatchet, a dirk and a variety of herbs and spices. Give us a mental/personal description of your character in 3-5 sentences: Otello is a charismatic man that enjoys the company of others. Due to being a bartender and tavern owner for 21 years, Bucknell is well versed in making a variety of beverages, foods, and as an added bonus, knows how to fight in close quarters in hand to hand combat due to the frequent brawls that arise when patrons have too much of a good or bad time. Despite this basic level of self defense, Otello has no personal experience with militaristic tactics and strategy, only tales of his patrons heroic acts in combat. Additionally, Otello likes to see the good in people and only resorts to violence if all other avenues leave no choice but to do so. Lastly, Otello is not very religious. Explain how your character made it to the Crossroads in 5-10 sentences and with 1 reference to the lore: Not much is known of Otello’s upbringing, except that he grew up in household that made enough money to keep food on the table and a place to lay down to sleep. Besides this, some common knowledge about Otello is that at the age of 17 years old, this man inherited his fathers rundown bar. Luckily, Otello also inherited an old hatchet from his father and through long hours of manual labor, Otello managed to turn the dive bar into a well known local tavern in his hometown. Due to people seeing the ambitious man work with his fathers hatchet renovating the tavern, Otello earned the name “The Hatchet”. After successfully renovating his fathers tavern, Otello would then spend the next 10 years running the tavern with the help of a loyal worker he hired named Samson, serving drinks and cooking food, despite not knowing much about cooking and mixing drinks besides what basic recipes his father and mother taught him growing up. Periodically, Otello would find himself venturing to other local taverns to see what he could learn of their craft. While he was away, Otello would leave his tavern in the hands of Samson. When “The Hatchet” would return to his own tavern, he would implement those ideas but out of respect to the origins of those ideas, he would apply his own personal twist to them. After a good 11 more years, Otello’s Tavern, “Fire on the Water” became a well known and successful establishment that catered to a travelers appetite, a business man's thirst, or socialites craving for a good time. Being a bartender had many perks, but the one that intrigued Otello the most was the stories of his patrons. Because the tavern was located in The Far East Merchant Republic of The Wellspring, it was common to hear of stories of privateers and merchants sharing their stories such as military service, travels to far away lands, and even some accounts of mysterious creatures, and magic. Nothing was more exciting than hearing about the marvels of the world beyond his humble work life, and so, this lit a spark in Otello and soon, this spark would ignite into a fire that would burn. And with 21 years of his life invested into his tavern, Otello would decide to leave Samson in charge of the tavern, with the promise that he would one day return with his own stories to share to both him, and his patrons. With his fathers hatchet in hand, some coin, and his experiences that he gathered over the years, Otello Bucknell would venture out into the Prime Materia to see what life had to offer outside of brews and glasses.
