  1. Just to clarify, the Ta does live on Tau Ceti, but they live on Luthien, the home of their brood, which doesn't have a significant human or otherwise presence asides from research labs, and thus will have spent almost all of their time around their own brood, rather than with aliens, giving a rather secluded experience. As for the experience of interacting with humans, I believe they will be slightly taken aback, but expectant of poor treatment, based on the treatment of the brood of their own (new) High Queen in District Nine. This won't really affect them much in terms of an emotional response, however. The brood they originate from doesn't really care that much for humans or other aliens- the Ta'Akaix is there to further the ends of their Hive, not to make friends. As for availability, Monday tomorrow would be perfect for me, as I work on the weekends.
  2. Personally, I prefer the sprites from Brainos.
  3. Unfortunately, this will not have been me, as I do not have the whitelist or a trial at the minute.
  4. I don't see any real issues with the character presented in the app, and I think it's pretty interesting to see someone apping with a Bound instead of an Unbound. Cnaym has also shown themselves to be a competent roleplayer with a strong grasp on how to portray characters of varying species and backgrounds. +1
  5. I don't plan to play anything but a Consular during my trial, and it's unlikely that I'll play anything else command-related for a while after provided I get the whitelist. This was mainly put in there because my original character that I wanted for command was Xicic Riori, who I had planned to become a Research Director, but events in the Warbling arc ended up with them joining the rebel cell. I had assumed that this meant the character was gone from on-station roleplay, until we got the lore about the rebellion that adds potential for Xicic to return, though I'm still on the fence for it. It's not a certainty. As for how I'd get feedback on my roleplay as a Consular post-app, most of it would come from after-round OOC, and mainly, the Vaurca discord. Vaurca will of course be the interest group of this character, and the one they're most likely to have an impact on, so I think that'd probably be one of the best ways for me to get feedback on them outside of the app.
  6. BYOND key: Leudoberct Character names: https://gyazo.com/72b5b4d4f4b6017f6039cf5d9eb37907 How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I haven’t really kept too much track, but definitely over a year now. Possibly encroaching on two. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I wish to be on the whitelist because I feel like I can provide good-quality roleplay to the rest of the playerbase through the roles made available by the whitelist. Why did you come to Aurora?: I came to Aurora mostly because I was seeking a HRP server that I could roleplay on after an extended break from SS13. I wasn’t recommended by anyone, I just looked in the server list, saw it, and clicked. 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? I’ve received a couple of notes during my time, but I’ve never done anything serious enough to be banned. 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 about creating a narrative for yourself and other players to enjoy. It is the creation of characters based on a setting, with their own histories, thoughts and appearances, and interacting with the world and other characters around them to create an enjoyable story. Whether it is something as simple as a night out at a bar, or as impactful as a battle between nations, the main goal of roleplay, and what it should be about, is not to win, but to create an impactful, enjoyable story for all those involved. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: A Head of Staff, in my eyes, is someone that helps to facilitate roleplay. They are not supposed to be the centre of the roleplay or take up all of the attention: they are supposed to help to guide and provide roleplay for their department and the station at large, be it through assigning tasks in-character to give players goals for the shift, or acting as a mediator for disputes between characters. They should also act as somewhat of an example to other, potentially newer players, by setting an example of how to roleplay and act. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Like I mentioned in my previous answer, I think the responsibility of a Command whitelisted player is to set a good example to other players on how to conduct themselves and roleplay, as well as facilitate roleplay for other players by providing them with interaction and goals that a non-Command character may not be able to provide. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? Tau Ceti is currently a cultural melting pot, with numerous species making their homes in the young Republic of Biesel. Some of the more recent events to take place in Tau Ceti would include the abscondment of a Skrell wanted by the Jargon Federation for terrorism escaping to the system, prompting a sweep of a NanoTrasen facility (the Aurora II) for the terrorist, as well as the visit of a Star Chanter to the system. In terms of its affect on my character and their career, it’s largely “none”. The character is a Vaurca belonging to the brood of the Queen of Corpses, and has thus been relatively removed from the recent goings-on in Tau Ceti, due to being located on Luthien for the vast majority of it, and the general sentiment of Xaxt’s brood towards non-Vaurca being one of forming little attachment. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Consular Officer, with the potential for more Command characters later on down the line. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Ta’Akaix’Vizq Zo’ra, Consular Officer How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I would say that I am confident in my own ability to provide a high-quality standard of roleplay. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Yes. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes. Extra notes: None.
  7. maybe not an appropriate joke to make zundy
  8. Skyglazer has always provided a consistent standard of good roleplay, and I'm looking forwards to seeing them fulfill the much needed role of a Hegemony consular. +1
  9. I'm pretty happy at the minute with the way brainmed is after a fair few rounds playing as medical. The only thing I can really suggest is that ballistics should probably be more lethal. Having them do organ damage would probably help this.
  10. I don't agree with the idea of one physician, at all. You want one physician, but two surgeons? Even though the physician is replacing Medical Doctor, which is the role that tends to do more general treatment, with surgeons being a specialised role? What is the logic behind this?
  11. i'm fine with the current lethality of brainmed tbh, though guns could probably be made more lethal by doing more organ damage if they hit the upper body (ballistics, that is)
  12. do not pet the guwan do not look at the guwan do not acknowledge the guwan
  13. The character will work as a Medical Doctor, though on occasion I may play them as a Chaplain. I picked medicine and theology due to the interest I have in the way it me'ds with the Sk'akh faith. Right now, to the casual observer, it may seem like the Sk'akh faith is a very destructive one, with the iron crusades and inquisitions. However, the faith actually preaches maintaining balance between the three aspects. This is why I am interested in portraying a priest that portrays the Healer aspect of Sk'akh, as it is the opposite to that of the Warrior aspect.
  14. BYOND Key: Leudoberct Character Names: Xicic Riori, Branches of Flowing Life, Daniel Pitchford, Ka’Akaix’Sgzi K’lax, Atepomarus, Seebeck Species you are applying to play: Unathi What color do you plan on making your first alien character: (27, 76, 3) Green. 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 want to play as a Unathi because I’ve found myself interested in their lore after starting to read into it, thanks to working on the Kataphract Chapter map and talking in the Unathi discord. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Unathi have some pretty clear physiological differences compared to humans, being cold-blooded reptiles rather than mammals. Provided that the Unathi in question also comes from the Izweski Hegemony, there are multiple cultural differences between them and humans, such as the largely priest-centric social hierarchy, (though nobles are still above), and the fact that their homeworld is currently slowly dying thanks to the results of a global nuclear war. Character Name: Skkukoas Ukazozu Please provide a short backstory for this character: Skkukoas of clan Ukazozu was hatched in Skalamar in the year 2430, to clan Ukazozu. Skkukoas spent most of his early life in Skalamar helping his clan with whatever task he was capable of, often spending time running errands until he had grown enough to perform more physically demanding tasks expected of a male Unathi. He became used to the sight of Humans and Skrell from an early age, when the first shuttleport on Moghes was constructed in Skalamar. At the age of eight, the Contact War broke out, and Moghes was consumed in nuclear fire. Though his clan escaped the worst of the war, remaining in Skalamar, Skkukoas grew up seeing the results of the war, and the wave of refugees flooding the city, attempting to escape the growing Wasteland. Seeing such disunity among his people inspired Skkukoas, and he began to attempt to maintain a sense of balance and unity with his people, beginning to preach the word of Sk’akh. After considering the path he had begun to set himself upon, Skkukoas fully dedicated himself to a life as a priest of Sk’akh, attending a university in Skalamar, studying for four years to obtain a Master in Sacred Theology. Once his studies were complete, he became a fully fledged priest of Sk’akh, finding that he wished to attempt to embody the Healer, believing that Moghes had great need of healing after the scars of the war. Skkukoas at first tended to a church of his own, providing guidance and healing to those who came to his church. However, he soon decided that if he was to better embody the Healer, his knowledge of the medicinal arts had to be expanded. With financial aid from the church of Sk’akh, he attended the Skalamar University of Medicine, studying there to become a Master Doctor. Upon graduating, instead of returning to his church, he conferred with his brothers of the Church of Sk’akh, after receiving an offer from NanoTrasen to take a contract with them upon one of their stations. He came to the conclusion that there were many Unathi outside of Moghes who lacked a priest of Sk’akh to offer them guidance, and chose to accept their offer, taking to the stars to spread the word of Sk’akh to the Unathi outside of Uueoa-Esa. What do you like about this character? I like this character because I’ve not really gone overly deep into religion on any of my characters before, and this provides me an opportunity to do so, and to also become more familiar with another alien species on the Aurora. How would you rate your role-playing ability? I’d say my roleplaying ability is fairly good. I believe I can portray numerous different races to a high level of quality. Notes: N/A
