  1. I do like the idea of seeing the Detective weapon be updated. I am howrmever sad to see the Noire aesthetic disappearing slowly, but I think consistency overall is better. The new look fits better with the rest of the ISD gear. It also makes a lot of sense lore wise. Having as many of the gear be cross compatible, even if only in caliber, is logical.
  2. Coenie is probably one of my favorite characters to see on the Security manifest. He's reliable, he's nice and professional. You RP him very well as beint a Necro contractor, something I quite enjoy seeing. You always gave off the vibe to me that you're an experienced Aurora player. I'm acrually somewhat shocked that you arent! I think it goes to say you and your character have a confident aura about them, whether it be through RP or knowledge of game mechanics! All in all, blerrie nice character!
  3. I agree with this suggestion. It's fairly annoying how hard it is to get drunk now. I can't say I spend a lot of time drinking on the Aurora but the few times I've done so I barely got hammered, even when trying to be. Let us get drunk, y'know?
  4. This is interesting. I didn't 'allow' the person to get fed on, I intervened after some RP. I didn't see they were being fed on immediately when I got there. I'm not a fan of jumping the gun and going straight for the valid. I was Roleplaying shock. I'd like to know how you think someone could consent do have blood drained from them? At that time the only other Vampire we had was aggressive to the crew and under investigation by the RD as an anomalous Crew member. While they were certainly not outright aggressive, Vampire B was still not compliant. We gave them PLENTY of chances to come quietly so they could be studied by Science and Medical but they refused to do so. As for giving them a monkey? Yes, perhaps that should have been done, I'll admit, but I'm fairly certain that breaks regulations. I know the situation might have called for stepping outside the lines but it was round end and I was in the middle of a small fight in the brig. Pressure from all sides. I feel like a lot of this is looked at from an 'hawks' point of view. I'm trying to play my character in a first contact scenario. We already have someone in custody showing similar 'behavior' and they weren't exactly nice. We're not talking about nice little space dogs here but a creature that feeds on the blood of living crew members. WHO CAN COME BACK FROM THE DEAD. The part with the bystanders watching the situation in science was partly because I didn't want them to be caught in the 'blast' if things went south. The characters present were clearly fond of the suspect and I wanted them away so that they wouldn't attempt anything funny. That's my reasoning. I'll keep that in mind however for future situations, thank you for that feedback.
  5. I feel like a lot of people have so little faith in their fellow players on Aurora. Yes, there might be instances where Revs turn the round into TDM. That'd be very unfortunate. But I think something simillar could be said for any gamemode on SS13. Lets not look at this negatively from the start. I think some good Rev players will make great plays and narratives out of this update.
  6. BYOND key: Uaine Character names: Elise Taylor (Sec Officer) Krazak Skavit (Sec Officer) Javuk Sharzik (Engineer) Clarice Dupont (Medical Doctor) Serenity (Borg/AI) How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I think I've been playing for about 3 to 4 months now. The exact amount of time I can't recall exactly. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I'd like to receive the whitelist because I believe I could be a good driving force for some of the rounds that happen on the Aurora. I do believe I'm patient enough to deal with some of the more delicate situation. I also see myself as a bit of a pleaser in the sense that giving out RP to people is something I enjoy doing. I know that in my time playing SS13 in general I've always loved it when Heads of Staff RP'd with me. They were interactions that felt special and I'd love to give back to the community in that sense. I also think that playing the 'boss' would be fun for once! Why did you come to Aurora?: I played on Baystation for a while. It was my second server after Yogstation (I played it briefly to learn the basic mechanics. Didn't want to jump into RP without knowing how to open a soda can.) I've always been a big fan of RP but the atmosphere and the lack of canonical interactions, along with the scattered lore, drove me away from Bay12. I love SS13 and craved for more so I decided to give Aurora a shot, just to see how it was like on the other HRP server. I have to say I do not regret making the switch at all. I love it here. Everyone's been so nice to me and I love the community. You guys rock! Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes, I've read through both the Captain's and HoS guides alon with their respective pages thoroughly. The others I didn't study as much considering I have no intention playing them. At least not for now. Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? None that I'm aware of. I think I might have DC'd as a borg once? I'm not sure. Either way it was a mistake. 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 a collaboration between players to create a narrative in which everyone can have fun and drive a story forward. It's something a lot of people can escape into which I think is great. It's a way to immerse yourself in a role or situation in which you would have never found yourself into in real life. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To drive the story forward and to bring some order into the chaos that some rounds can be. A leader that gives out instructions and makes sure that no one is left unnoticed or without something to do/occupy themselves with.They're there to make some of the decisions a department wouldn't be able to make if it wasn't for them being present. I also see Heads of Staff as mentors for their department. They're the person people turn to with questions, IC and OOC sometimes too. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I think the answer to this question can be somewhat summarized well with my above response. Command players are there to keep the round going and assist new players who might be a little lost and whatnot. I think Command characters, from my experience, provide interesting roleplay and character development to other players. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? While I'm still fairly 'new' to the server I don't know exactly everything that goes on lore-wise, although I did read most of the wiki pages and I browse some of the postings on the forums. All I know is that the Jargons are being a little too intrusive on the Aurora and rumors have it that they killed/kidnapped some members of the crew. My characters find themselves a little torn between their personal opinions and their work ethics. Especially Elise Taylor. She lost a good friend to the TUPs which makes her very wary of Skrell crew members. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? So far I only wish to play Head of Security. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Krazak Skavit, an old Lizard war veteran who's seen too much. I've been having a lot of fun playing him. While he's a Unathi who believes strongly in the code of honor he still hates resorting to violence, preferring to find a peaceful alternative to most deadly situations. It doesn't mean he won't fight back if needed to, just that he's had enough bloodshed. It's been absolutely amazing to play a character that's focused on finding a different approach that most (At least from my experience) Sec players won't always consider. Negotiation and finding a middle ground. I'm hopping that having him being HoS will allow me to push that narrative forward a little more and sometimes maybe bring a fun and unexpected twist to some rounds that might have otherwise ended in a bloodshed. How would you rate your own roleplaying?: With multiple years RPing in videogames (WoW, FF14, ToR) and LARPing I think I have a fairly good understanding of what Roleplay is. I think I provide players who interact with my characters with an acceptable level of RP on most of my interractions, if not nearly all. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Of course. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes, like I already answered above. Extra notes: I'd like to note that while I'm still fairly new to the server I have a craving to learn new things. If I do get this whitelist and ever find myself in a situation where I appear to be lost and unsure of what to do please do not hesitate to tell me. I think no one is perfect and we should all strive to better ourselves in everything we do! I also encourage everyone to ask questions if they feel like I haven't answered everything in my app! Thank you!
  7. I found the event to be very enjoyable on my side of things. I got some really awesome RP and the combat was sort of light, which is pretty good. I know it wasn't the same for everybody, but I can only speak for myself. I do think it was a bit confusing in some parts, especially once the scream or whatever happened. I believe it worked in favor of the event in the end though. As for the Psionic abilities themselves... I can't really say much about them. I had the psiblade, which seems to be pretty cool. I can see the advantage of having a concealed weapon on yourself that no one can take away from you. The rest of the Psi system also looks really cool, even if I didn't understand any of it to be quite honest! Something about different levels of capabilities? Not sure. All in all, pretty solid event! Enjoyed it quite a bit and I'd like to see more like this one! Especially if it helps our Dev team nail down new features!
  8. BYOND Key: Uaine Game ID: b4I-dpM6 Player Byond Key/Character name: Arch Staff involved: I Ahelped to ask why I was implanted out of curiosity. Don't remember who answered me though. Reason for complaint: I'll start by putting you in my shoes. I join the round when it's about 50 minutes to an hour in. I get geared up and on my way out of the locker room I hear laser shots and see the Warden chassing around the cadet. They yell at me to stop them, so I draw my taser and tell the Cadet to get down. During my confrontation the cadet manages to use a injecto-pen (whatever they're called) on me, putting me into a coma for around 40 minutes. So far, nothing to complain about, really. Not the cadet's fault for defending themselves. So I sit in medical, unable to do anything for all this time and eventually they bring me to surgery. I patiently wait and eventually I manage to get out of there. I take a few steps outside the OR only, exchange maybe two words with the CMO and boom. I explode. Now, I joined the round late, so I can't say for sure if the Surgeon had any kind of escalation going before implanting me, essentially turning someone who had been stuck waiting for 45 minutes into the weapon they'd use to kill someone else. What I'm asking is for you guys to check if there was any sort of RP leading to my death, because I sure as hell didn't get any. I heard from some people that there wasn't really any indicators as to why I was used as a bomb, other than that it was an attempt on the CMO. I will cancel this complaint if told that there was, in fact, some story or anything leading up to my death. Did you attempt to adminhelp the issue at the time? If so, what was the known action taken by administration/moderation? Yes and No, I asked why I was bombed but the staff member (Cant recall who) told me they believed it was to kill the CMO. Didn't think much on it at first, finding it absurd still that I died in such a dumb way. I should have made a complaint right at that point, but I mostly just shrug off these kind of things. Thinking about it more made me realize how poor of a play it was if no RP was actually attempted before using me as an innocent weapon. Approximate Date/Time: December 15, I don't recall the time exactly. You should have it available with the round ID.
  9. He's 45 years old! A bit on the old size for most characters. I think. He's still religious. While he still grieves the death of his wife he doesn't exactly hold it against the Priesthood anymore. She died trying to save her honor, at least in his eyes. I'd say he's in a bit of a debate surrounding it. He's wary, but still supportive of it. Honor is a very important thing to him and he's sworn an oath to his Lord, which are supportive of it in turn. The Izweski had their own share of dishonor during the war but it's not comparable to the coalition.
  10. BYOND Key: Uaine Character Names: Elise Taylor, Elizabeth Foxfort, Serenity Species you are applying to play: Unathi What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Black Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes, I have read through it multiple times. I sure hope I don't get anything wrong! 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 a Unathi because playing a race that is very different from Humans is exciting. The rich culture of that race provides great RP potential and it's something that I strive to for. Also, who doesn't want to be a cool space Lizard? Lets be honest... Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Well, honor is very important to Unathi, something a lot of humans have forgotten about. Their society is completely different as well, especially the social status of women, for example. The fact that they are towering cold blooded lizards is also a big difference. It should be taken into account when facing certain situations such as environment and other dangers bound to arrive on the station. Character Name: Krazak Skavit Please provide a short backstory for this character: Spoiler for your convenience! What do you like about this character?: He's calm and he's collected. He's seen what war and conflict can do to people and wishes to keep the peace and avoid conflict above all else. While I want to play him as a Security Officer I'm really trying to go for the almost 'pacifist' route with him, if I can call it that. How would you rate your role-playing ability?: I'd say I'm decent. I've been Roleplaying for years across many different medias. (WoW, FF14, DnD and much more. ) I always strive to better myself and the way SS13 incorporates actual gameplay in it's roleplay has been a very fun challenge! Notes: Thank you for reading my app, whoever you are! If you find anything you'd like changed or corrected I'm always up for discussion and stuff!
  11. I really disagree with this one. I can already think about so many scenarios where this change would make no sense from both a Roleplay and Gameplay point of view. Bad guy trying to weld his way into the armory or the vault? Gotta wait for someone else to open the door. I get the idea of trying to include other departments, but in a dangerous scenario the last thing you want is bystanders to be clogging the maintenance hallways with you. There's already enough collateral damage happening. We don't need more. Another reason... Picture this; You're running after a bad guy and all he has to do is go into maintenance and shut the door behind him. By the time you get someone to give you access he could be anywhere on the station. This is just terrible and will terribly cripple the ability of ISD to respond to calls and threats. If your goal is to nerf Security why not just say that?
  12. All of my interactions with this player and her characters have been pretty positive. They're a solid RPer and I think they'd make a pretty solid Hos! They have my full support! +1
