  1. After playing quite a few rounds with their HOP, I can definitely give them a +1. They cooperate with other command members well and I've not had any issues with their behaviour.
  2. I've interacted more with Travis than Sarah, but both seem to be in their element and know what they're doing. Travis in particular is always on top of things as warden and I always enjoy it when I get the chance to interact with them. The answers they gave in their post pretty much hit the nail on the head imo for what command is about. They also seem to know what's expected of them if/when they get their trial. Definite +1
  3. Just had a round with Stev as consular. Very interesting to interact with so far, and they seem to be knowledgeable enough in their Sol lore. Can't wait to see what your Command play is like when you make your HOS/HOP.
  4. I'm sorry you feel that way Firaxias. Don't think it's out of malice or anything; sometimes there's someone else nearby or I'm already there and I can do it myself. I'll keep what you said in mind and try to get you more involved in what's going on.
  5. BYOND key: WhatsUpBrotendo Character names: Imran Zadeh, Kaden Rivers (There's other characters, but they've either not been played or I've deleted them and can't remember the names.) How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Nearly a year (joined around April/May 2019, took a break around September then rejoined around late March this year) Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I think it would be a good way for one of my characters to grow. I'd also like to use it as an opportunity to better teach new players ICly. Why did you come to Aurora?: The server fits my criteria for what I want to get out of playing SS13. Other servers I've played on didn't quite scratch the roleplaying itch I had for various reasons, the main one being that they're too fast-paced and difficult for me to keep up with whats going on. The overall speed of things on Aurora and the fact that its a HRP server mean I can actually roleplay with other players. 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? A few verbal warnings, around two or three if I remember rightly. No notes, warnings, or bans on my record. 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: Roleplaying is putting yourself in the mind of a character, and playing as if you were them while keeping in mind their ambitions, background, and quirks. I'd say roleplaying should be about having fun, while keeping in mind the setting that you're playing in and making sure that your character and their actions are at least somewhat believable. It's also about telling a story that everyone involved enjoys and creates opportunity for growth and advancement for not just your character, but others as well. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: I believe it's mostly dependent on the role itself, but generally speaking Heads of Staff are there to help move things along naturally. Whether that's assigning people to specific jobs in their department, signing off on paperwork, or interacting with antagonists to make their actions more meaningful during a round. I also believe command staff are also meant to be a guiding hand in their department, especially towards people who are either new to the game entirely, or just trying out a new role than what they usually play. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: A player with this whitelist has to have at least a decent understanding of the department they wish to play, and be able to fill in for most positions when possible. Their knowledge of their department doesn't have to be perfect, but they should know how most things work so that it doesn't cause disruptions to other players during a round that would negatively affect their experience. They should also be able to know when to properly escalate during a round, keeping in mind the current situation and what would be an appropriate response (e.g, not calling for an ERT when security is fully staffed and able to handle it on their own). They are also responsible for the overall flow of the round, making sure that things can progress in a believable and balanced manner, hopefully with no one having their immersion or roleplaying ruined. I try (and plan to keep trying) to be receptive to any comments about how I play, and using any feedback to improve myself. I hope that through that I'll be able to work with others in making sure I uphold the responsibilities of the whitelist, and everyone can enjoy themselves. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? The Tajaran conflict is heating up, and Imran is concerned that tensions between his coworkers will get to the point where he might get involved, even if he doesn't want to. He just wants to do his job and earn enough money to maybe retire and avoid everything else in the galaxy. He's met Tajarans from all three groups and even though he doesn't particularly understand what their differences are, he knows there's bad blood, and that some may see what's going on as an opportunity to cause trouble. Imran finds the Skrell to be fascinating, and looks up to them since to him they're much more advanced than any other race he's encountered. Even though he's heard disturbing accounts from the time the Federation sent agents to the Aurora, he isn't as concerned as others seem to be. He believes that he'll be mostly untouched by whatever their interest is in Tau Ceti, although he is worried that some of the IPCs he's befriended may be in danger. Overall Imran is trying to stay positive and hopefully be a reassuring presence for his coworkers that may be more directly affected by recent events. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Chief Engineer, and I'm on the fence about creating a Head of Personnel. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Imran Zadeh - Chief Engineer How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Nothing remarkable. I try my best but sometimes I catch myself roleplaying in a way that isn't up to my standard. Constantly trying to improve. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Yes. Have you familiarized yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes. Extra notes: I'd really appreciate any feedback people have regarding characters I used to play that I haven't listed. The two I've listed are probably the only ones most people would have interacted with, but I'm sure there's others that I can't remember that others will.
  6. +1, I enjoy RP'ing with Tryings characters and I'd like to see how they do as vaurca
  7. Reporting Personnel: KD2-6.4 (Kaden) Job Title of Reporting Personnel: Security Officer Game ID: Round before b2l-c1YG Personnel Involved: Riv Liwei, Officer (Offender) Tore Sigurdsson, Detective (Offender) Elwood Pesic, Shaft Miner (Victim) KD2-6.4 (Kaden, Officer (Witness) Jesse Armstrong, Head of Security (Witness/Punisher) Time of Incident: Real Time: Roughly 1930 GMT, 21/07/19 Location of Incident: Interview Room, ISD Nature of Incident: [] - Workplace Hazard [] - Accident/Injury [] - Destruction of Property [] - Neglect of Duty [] - Harassment [x] - Assault [x] - Misconduct [] - Other _____ (Place an x in the box that applies. If other, replace line and specify.) Overview of the Incident: I came across blood in the interview room, and came across a recorder that was still recording. I printed out the transcript (attached below) and it shows the two offenders talking about stun batonning the victim as they were uncooperative during interrogation, along with the detective admitting to dislocating the prisoners arm. I handed the evidence to Jesse Armstrong, that shifts HoS, and helped oversee the offenders suspension. Did you report it to a Head of Department or IAA? If so, who?: Jesse Armstrong, Head of Security Actions taken: Suspension of both offending ISD personnel. Additional Notes: Although the incident was handled during the shift, I believe more severe punishment is required as this was a gross abuse of power that should not be tolerated.
  8. +1 How you played during your first round as HoS was great. Enjoyed RPing with you and how you played.
  9. I like the idea. It'd definitely help during low-pop
  10. BYOND Key: WhatsUpBrotendo Character Names: Flint Styles (bartender), Patrick O'Callaghan (detective), Mitch Yung (engineer), Antoinette (medical borg), Keihakaka (Vox merchant) Species you are applying to play: IPC. 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'd like to finally expand my roster a bit, and I flipped a coin to see whether I should choose Dionae or IPC. I enjoyed reading up on the lore behind IPCs and love the tagging and overall disparagement of IPCs due to mistrust since its something I've not seen in IPC lore before playing on this server. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: In the end, an IPCs decision making is calculated, meaning that they would not make bold and rash decisions. Even though their emotions are simulated and they cannot actually feel pain, they would still have their own welfare in mind as they are expensive to repair. Saying that, however, they would also be willing to go into most dangerous situations that organics would refuse as they are sturdy and immune to most hazards. Since IPCs are not given the same rights as organics, and they are treated with suspicion or hostility by a large number of people, they would be more courteous and friendly to crewmembers than you would expect from any other species. Character Name: P.A.N.T.O. Please provide a short backstory for this character P.A.N.T.O. is a baseline Zeng-Hu Mobility frame and was manufactured in fabrication district 83 on New Gibson on 13/3/2456. Originally designated ZHP.3452-P, they were created to work in fields that require high dexterity and speed. A travelling theatre troupe called "The Carp and Hoverbike" purchased this IPC for the advertised dextrous mobility, and renamed it to P.A.N.T.O. to represent its role in pantomime theatre with the troupe. P.A.N.T.O.'s purpose was to be an understudy; with its capability to remember vast amounts of data, it was able to memorise the lines and actions for every other actor in the troupe and replace them if they were unable to perform. P.A.N.T.O. became a good investment for the troupe, and was received well by audiences - especially when P.A.N.T.O. had to fill in for the villain role. But after three years of service, the theatre troupe started to run into money issues due to low sales. To off-set the costs, P.A.N.T.O. was sold to NanoTrasen in 2459 and was assigned to the N.S.S. Canes Venatici as a janitor, where they diligently cleaned the station while also providing humour for the medical staff. P.A.N.T.O.'s style of humour from years of working in pantomime theatre was a welcomed break for the crew, and they were regularly acclaimed by patients whenever P.A.N.T.O. was cleaning their ward. Two years later, P.A.N.T.O. was reassigned to the N.S.S. Aurora. What do you like about this character? I like theatre and I really enjoy playing IPCs, and the idea of an entertainment IPC is something that I've played around with on a different server, but never really gave it more depth than jokes. I'm pretty keen on the idea of playing an IPC mimicking the personality of a pantomime actor. How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'd probably rate it a 7/10, I enjoy roleplaying but I've been told that sometimes I seem to "rush" things when playing SS13, something I'm trying to work on. Notes: This is my first app and I've only started playing here a month ago so I'd appreciate any sort of feedback.
