  1. Grammatically and just in the flow of the application, I have quite a few critiques, but we are not here to judge that (as long as it isn’t horrendous). From my experience in the relay and in seeing you roleplay in a few rounds, you seem to have a firm grasp on your character, and whilst this application doesn’t necessarily show a in-depth understanding of Skrellian culture and history, as long as you say that you’ve read it and understand it, I’m fine with giving this application a +1.
  2. I have been advertising, the only issue is I’ve only been able to fit in one shift per day Monday - Thursday because it was finals week at my school and I was busy studying for a significant portion of the day. I would have asked for a shift extension, but today I’ve begun traveling for summer and will be unavailable for some time.
  3. Just played with him as the HoS, Braun. Pretty good roleplay, always open to suggestions, and pretty understanding and friendly with the other heads. +1
  4. Good character, had a few rounds wit him. My high point with the character has always been his hilarious drunkrp, it's just the best part of a boring shift.
  5. BYOND key: Aptare Character names: Qerrshbi Weashugl How long have you been playing on Aurora?: In terms of time since first connection, over a year. Active playtime? I played a good bit late last year as well as in January, and have come back to it now in April. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I, simply, just want my character to become a Chief Medical Officer. I believe he has developed enough and has the necessary qualifications to be such, and deserves the role. Why did you come to Aurora?: I came to Aurora simply because I heard it was HRP. Hadn't thought of SS13 as being able to harbor that, so I joined to see what was what. I haven't been disappointed so far. Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes. Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? None. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each. Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplay is, as the name would suggest, pretending to be a role and acting in a way that is typical of that character. It's a lot like improv, except without comedy and deeper characters. Roleplay should be about, just what it is, roleplay. It should not be focused on trying to achieve some sort of OOC goal or something, it is about developing your character, your relationships with other characters, and letting the true beauty of your character's inner self be unleashed during times of crisis. That is what roleplay is about, playing a role, playing it good, and enriching other's experience with it. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Out of character, a head of staff is essentially there to make sure their department runs smoothly, and no chucklefuck comes in and messes everyone up. They are kind of.. the chief moderators of their respective department. They keep it safe, keep it together, and keep it ultimately functional. I think it is ultimately the same in-game, though it might be said in a bit nicer language. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: OOC, Head of Staffs, to me, are primarily teachers to the less knowledgeable. They offer a voice of reason, experience to the inexperienced. They are like a unofficial mentor for the department they usually head. They can also teach others about paperwork, about applications, like this one. I would strive to uphold this responsibility by.. being responsible for it. Even now, I'm perfectly willing to teach less experienced medical characters, and have in the past. Whether it be about basics like what medicine to use for which type of damage, or how to operate the cloning pod, or how to fill the cryo-pods, I am and always have been willing to teach those who don't know, and will continue to be in the future. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? In Tau Ceti, there has been a new influx of Unathi employees, from the new Aut'Akh "faction", though I could call it more of a.. group. There is of course tensions in Biesel, and all that. To be quite honest, Tau Ceti events has not effected my character in the slightest. Not being from anywhere near Tau Ceti or anywhere near the Unathi homeworld, his career has been minimally effected. The only effect it has had on him is him realizing that now there are "strange technologically hybridized Unathi", and they are beginning to get more power and rights. =============================================================================================================================================== What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Chief Medical Officer. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Qerrshbi Weashugl, Chief Medical Officer. How would you rate your own roleplaying?: A solid 8. I'm not going to say that I have perfect roleplay, or close to perfect roleplay, but I like to think I am consistent with my character, have somewhat interesting conversations with others, and have a solid personality. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Yes, and doing this application as it is now, I think if I did anything requiring administrative actions, I need to have it taken away as a lesson. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes. Extra notes: N/A.
  6. I'll try to answer your questions fully. I wasn't meaning to have it so he emerged from it as a prepared scientist. I gave him a job as a "genetics assistant", which I tried to liken to a dental assistant irl in the sense that you don't need much prerequisite for it, and it gives you some experience. He didn't get a degree in the orphanage, which was shown later, but I understand why that was tied in with the last one. I do agree with you in the sense that I might have glossed the orphanage over a bit too much. I'll try to elaborate on the "How did his time in the orphanage prepare him for life?". Well, he got a general education, as well as their version of high school, and he got a good amount of knowledge from the caretaker about how to survive in the real world, and learned even more of the world from the geneticist he assisted whom formed into a mentor of sorts for him. "How does his passion for the cosmos tie into his passion for biology?". Honestly, it doesn't. It was picked up from his caretaker, and it helps explain why he sought a job with Nanotrasen on a space station. I believe he might have found a bit of a link between genetics and astronomy, yes, though the story put so far doesn't show it. Some of his interest towards astronomy and going to the space station was studying how DNA is changed by being in space. (Such an example has actually been shown irl recently when a astronaut returned from space with different DNA.) I do believe the desire to know more of the cosmos does motivate him quite a bit and helps him in his studies to learn more about everything in the universe, though mainly with the building blocks of the body. The dishonorable behavior wasn't meant to signify childhood, though I can see how it can be said to be. I meant youth as in his 20's/30's, since that's fairly young in regards to the lifespan of the species. The dishonorable action was the bargain between him and the geneticist, and he put aside the corrupt favors part in order to further his academia. This question has answered the sterility question, I believe. The Regluk section was to show his respect for "The First Incident". As a scientist, he has greatly deliberated on the point of AIs, and while he doesn't enjoy AI's, he tolerates them, barely. He still respects greatly those who created AI, and respects and admires the ingenuity and dedication of those who managed to create intelligence, albeit artificial. I hope this has answered your questions fully and properly. Thank you for the questions, they have actually given me more insight into the character and helped me personalize it further to my enjoyment. [mention]Senpai Jackboot[/mention]
  7. I like how you give no justification and seem to gloss it over. Attacking a person who is unarmed, with no warning, for a consented aggressive grab documented on comms isn't proper. You didn't even own up to it in your last post and apologize or give evidence of otherwise. -1.
  8. Ah, wasn’t sure if that was frowned upon. I’ll begin making multiple characters for other jobs, if they interest me.
  9. Oh and also, [mention]Muncorn[/mention] , that name choice was intentional. I wasn't sure the format to use for a Skrell, so I decided to use important people and places from Skrell lore.
  10. Thanks for giving me feedback. I do want to say the hardship part wasn't what I was going for. The depression segment was added after the original post in order to try to give him more personality. My aim was to create a exceptional Skrell with his whole life ahead of him, so I could try to develop his character fully into the future and add more to his background. I do understand my mistake now, and will probably remove the depression section. I had read a few other good whitelist apps for Skrell, and I noticed all of them seemed to have a deep personality, so I tried to replicate it here with hardship. In all truth, I'm not sure how to give the character full personality without writing a 3 page document showing his entire life. Though, I could be wrong. I am often critical of my own work, especially when compared with someone else's. I'm going to be thinking of better ways to improve his personality, but honestly I feel it's best that the personality develops after the character is made, simply so the character will develop as naturally as possible based on his surrounding stimuli. That's just how I feel about it though. Thanks for giving feedback, and I'll take it to heart.
  11. Okay, fixed that error. Many thanks for pointing it out. All feedback is welcome.
  12. Oh, thanks for catching that error. I'll fix it as soon as possible.
  13. BYOND Key: Aptare Character Names:Neil Langford Species you are applying to play: Skrell What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): A light turquoise. Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question Why do you wish to play this specific race: I have many reasons why I'd like to play this race, and why I think I'd enjoy it. My first reason is that I've always enjoyed medicine and science of the sort, and I feel that Skrells match up with my logical thinking and interests. It also gives me an opportunity to invest more into my IC personality, making it more akin to my own, making it easier to play as. I generally think that this would be the best race for me because it conforms to many of my personality traits, as well as my interests. It even has it's own form of language that's more efficient. It's everything I could ever ask for! Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Well, playing a Skrell is quite different than playing a Human. As a Skrell, you are upheld to higher standards, as well as a general honor code and logic. I also enjoy Skrell quite a bit over Human because as a Skrell you are able to express your emotions better, as evident in the lore. The underlying ability and method of displaying emotion of a Skrell is amazing, and something that no Human could understand or comprehend fully, especially since they can't hear some of the frequency's Skrell's use when they speak. Character Name: Heshi-Regluk Jrugl Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Heshi-Regluk Jrugl was born on April 12th, 2380 on Qerrbalak, also known as Jargon IV, to an unknown person. Heshi-Regluk Jrugl was found shipped to a small orphanage with nothing but a tattered blanket. He was cared for by the orphanage caretaker until he was 18, when he was released from the orphanage's care. Upon his release, Heshi-Regluk Jrugl immediately sought a stable job. A week later he was hired as a genetics assistant for a small genetics research company, where he generally just assisted the geneticists in their work. It is here where he got his interest in the sciences, especially the medical sciences. He soon met another geneticist who worked at the company who had a connection with a professor at Aloise University of Medical Sciences, and the geneticist agreed to setup a interview for him at the university, as long as Heshi-Regluk Jrugl gave him 3000 credits a year for 10 years. After managing to get a scholarship at the university and paying off his debt to the geneticist, Heshi-Regluk Jrugl graduated from the Aloise University of Medical Sciences with a PhD in Genetics and a Master's in Clinical Pathology in 2420. Heshi-Regluk Jrugl immediately sought employment with Nanotrasen after graduation, as the employee benefits and high quality stations were quite enticing to him, not to mention he sought after a place for a fresh start. Nanotrasen eventually employed him in 2421, where he managed to gain a large understanding of genetics, and how it can help both of their races. During the period of 2421-2460, Heshi-Regluk Jrugl wildly advanced his knowledge of genetics, and managed to fit in quite a time to indulge in his religion, focusing quite a bit on astronomy and the study of stars in his free-time. He always found himself entranced by the cosmos, wanting to know more about it, and his place in it. It is 2460 and Heshi-Regluk Jrugl has been employed as a part-time Virologist, part-time Geneticist. He hopes that this proves a fruitful endeavor that can help him forward scientific research for both the human race and the Skrell race. What do you like about this character? I enjoy this character because he has been through hardships, and has several aspects of my own personality ingrained in him. He has been through a lot, and spent a great deal of time honing his craft, even resulting to a momentary unhonorable action in his youth in order to further his academic success. I also enjoy the ingrainment of his scientific knowledge and prestigious background, making him a well-sought and loyal employee for Nanotrasen. How would you rate your role-playing ability? On a scale from 1-10, I'd rate my roleplaying ability at a 7 or 8. I've been roleplaying on and off for many years, but I don't qualify myself as a roleplay genius or expert. I still have the occassional slip-ups. Notes:
