Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.
Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplay in my opinion is my escape from the material universe. It allows me to become a space commando or a commander of men just by acting a part. In essence it allows me to have fun by playing make believe and to create enjoyment for others by my own actions.
What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To lead the station in such a way that would reflect an actual captains or heads descisions based on reality and the fact that there on the payroll of an uncaring megacorperation.
What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I have been around here long enough to know this. In essence it means that I am one of the trusted few who the admins know will not be a total dirtbag and abuse the relative power I gain by such a position. All in all "Don't be a dick"
Please pick one of your characters for this section, and provide well articulated responses to the following questions.
Character name: Markus Vane
Character age: 34
Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): NanoTrasen and SolGov records show that Mr. Vane started out work at a SpaceHut on the lunar colony. He then attended the Mons Olympus university on mars and joined NanoTrasen out of a work study program.
He was first assigned to cargo detail on the NTV Circumference and after a eight year program got his MD in advance medicine and transhuminist studys. He then joined the research and cloning team on the NES Victor located in the Tau Cheti system. During an attack on the station by anti-tech terrorists Markus was awarded the NanoTrasen Honor Star for valor and sacrifice in the support of his corporation and fellow man.
Records show he utilized an unknown genome in the human DNA sequence to create a sort of superhuman that he used upon himself and, according to witness statements, "rip those bastards limb from limb while screaming stuff about some 'next step' and how 'you stand in my way and shall be destroyed by my science'. Markus was then instituted to CMO on the NSS Victor after releasing his viral pathogenic treatment to NanoTrasenMed. Unfortunatly the strain only works on his specific DNA sequence but it made a marvelous milestone in the quest for the perfect soldier. He has been transfered to the NSS Aurora by his own request to, in his own words, "Take a little break in a nice quite place for a change". It should be noted that Markus Vane's loyalty's do in fact NOT reside in the company but instead reside in the Transumanist cult run out of Earth. He however maintains a strong relationship with NanoTrasen for he believes it will be the one to usher in the new age, and he hopes to be the one designing it.
What do you like about this character?: Markus is an solid doctor who belives that the human form is somthing to be discarded and replaced by "improvements to mind and body" He has a unique temperament to his fellow man.
What do you dislike about this character?: He can be self centered at times and will not think twice about "removing" those who "stand in the way of progress"
Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff? (Please note that Head characters must be over 30, unless given special clearance): Yes, he has proven himself worthy to the task and has an actual reason to be on the NSS Aurora.
Why?: Like I stated above. He is a good man ... in his own way, but still believes in the good of men. Even if he thinks this can only be brought out by technology and science. Not social situations or policies.
Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions.
How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Slightly above average but I am getting better all the time. I can be REALLY good if I get into it and others go along for the story, I just LOVE telling storys. I have a slight grammar issue but that is easily overlooked. Mainly when I get flustered I might miss a vowel or something. And after five+ years on this game I think I know my shit. Kind of...
Extra notes: I am back baby!
