  1. I have given the app a little edit, I've put that part in Italics for you; but yes the idea was that he would become lost - mostly due to the lack of faith towards his own race as he wandered the wasteland as a Guwandi, becoming subcoming to the elements somewhat. He would then rekindle that faith as he descoverd the Si'akh heresy, realising that he misjudged himself as well as his own people, if there are any other questions I will be happy to answer!
  2. +1 from me! I have played alongside Forktress for a few years now, both with other games and on Aurora. I enjoy RPing with their characters (Mostly Sabela, the maint goblin). And have the upmost faith in their ability to roleplay another race. As a mostly skrell player, yes... IPC man bad.
  3. BYOND Key: Xevanthraxis Character Names: Sarah Edwards, Paisly Ward, Shae’Jurlp Glubleuc, Ponoh’Vulun Kaaxi, CLEM 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 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: The Unathi are an interesting change of pace compared to my other more science based characters. Being more honor bound and warrior focused. But also because of my general interest in reptiles. Being among some of my favorite animals, following one of my personal interests. I have been interested in reptiles since for as long as I can remember (mostly with Dinosaurs) and I thought why not apply for Unathi. Which would allow me to put myself in a roll that I have not personally had much experience with, but also to put myself into the shoes of a Unathi. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: The first part would be the fact that they are reptilian, their environment usually needs to be very different and they have different resistances because of this. That being heat, whilst being weak to cold due to their Cold-blooded nature. Another would be their behaviour and honor structure, soon followed by their social hierarchy. They behave as a mix, at times similar to reptiles on earth yet as honorable warriors from various locations around the world. Their mannerisms are different, how they interact with one another, to various situations. Such as heckling and rattling their scales when agitated or thumping their tail against the ground. Other behavioural things such as tasting the air with their tongue like snakes and some lizards do, along with also being able to clean their own eyes with said tongue. The society structure is too more akin to older earth civilisations than modern day ones. With males of varying classes being placed in a pyramid structure, whilst women are at the bottom. Being treated as respectfully valued property. And below them, the Guwan. Character Name: Aasethiks Kuth’Rex Please provide a short backstory for this character: Aasethiks when he was younger was smaller than average for a male born in the year 2416 , and also thinner. Possessing snake like features unlike most of the other males in the clan. Because of this in his early years he was treated as a bit of a runt, picked on and bullied by others of the same age due to their larger size. However, Aasethiks didn’t take this lightly and strove to improve himself. He grew quickly, tall and lithe and became a great warrior, not through strength but speed and agility. Making him an excellent hunter. By the age of 21 he had managed to make a name for himself, managing to be one who sold various meats of the wildlife of Moghes. And was eventually married to a Kathes Vehk’aahk. However, on the same year - 2437 - the Ourean Catalyst upset his clan along with many and despite the words of his wife, he joined the Traditionalist Coalition. However accepted to stay within the clans region, to help support his own growing family. However, On September 5th, 2439, as the nuclear exchange occurred. Aasethiks was out hunting. Only to hear the loud deafening explosion in the distance. 5 seconds, 10...20. At the 30th second a shockwave hit him sending him back a good couple of feet. However his mind had no concern for himself, but that of his family. He rushed back to his clan’s village, only to find many homes destroyed, including his own. He managed to worm himself inside, only to find that his wife had been crushed, having managed to save both of his children. He and those who survived the blast soon left. Wandering into the wasteland. He gave both his children to one of his siblings. Before announcing himself as Guwandi; before wandering into the wastes. As he wandered the wasteland, fighting each battle with the desire to lose but fighting to win; after the 5th opponent he soon began to doubt himself. Would he ever be able to lose? What was the point in this if the outcome never arrives? A mixture of starvation and dehydration started to meddle with his mind as he soon began to realise there was no point in his actions if he believed he couldn’t lose. And he became lost. Both in the wasteland and in himself. Believing that his people were wrong for doing what they did, damning themselves to oblivion with whatever infernal weapons were used. As the years went on he would come across 3 more opponents, and only came close to losing once out of the total 8 over the course of the 4 years. Mostly due to his sanity wavering as he began to become feral. Lost in his own head as survival instinct took over. It was towards the end of the 4th year that a Landcrawler would stumble across the semi-emaciated Unathi, and took him aboard. Over the next month or two he would heal of any infectious wounds and would soon begin to put on weight. Here he would learn of areas outside of his home system. And possible things he could do. He kept the name Guwandi, but his time in the wasteland, isolation and various delusions due to dehydration and starvation made him forget the honor of Guwandi. And this he kept it when he left Moghes aboard a nanotrasen vessel, before heading to the frontier. Here he would wonder, exploring as he went. But also challenging the odd being who tried him on for size; now mostly out of simple necessity, using it as a way to keep himself together. He would easily put them down and soon managed to gain the attention of a local Raider gang. To which he gladly joined, finding a use for himself once more despite its moral implications. He would do various things that today he is not proud off. But there is one thing he despises the raiders for most. It was one specific job, to simply take over a freighter and take the liquid fuel aboard. And then sell that off to the highest bidder. It went well at first, the raiders managed to commander the vessel, however a member of the Raider gang who did not like Aasethiks started to get violent. Aasethiks, still with the title of Guwandi, took to the challenge with what honor he had left. Only for the Raider to pull a gun on him. Aasethiks managed to dodge the shot, only for the shot to hit one of the various fuel lines. In that moment, the 5 raiders were either killed or badly wounded, with Aasethiks being the 6th. The surviving raiders left him and the other 5 for dead. In the void of space, and missing half of his face and arm, Aasethiks soon blacked out. And when he awoke he was enraged. Saved by the original owners of the freighter, they had managed to get him medical attention. Giving him a synthetic arm. Outranged, he swung for those around him, badly injuring 3 medical staff in the process. But thankfully not killing anyone and was detained for a further week before being deported back to Moghes. Something he did not enjoy all that much. Here he still kept the title of Guwandi, and tracked down those he had brought into this world. He would find them, neither of them recognising him as their own father. Whilst this did hurt him, he was glad that his sibling had managed to bring them up in his stead. He would then leave once more into the wasteland. Over the next 8 years he would travel from clan to clan, trying to offer his own services, however upon learning he had a prosthetic he was cast out. And was almost officially a Guwan if he was not already a Guwandi. He would soon come across a strange village. Around it were defenses, and signs of battle. Around him he saw various Unathi with their horns removed and on par with a small militia. At the centre of the small village he would hear shouting. Not violent, but loud, commending. The man shouting would be a priest, holding up a journal as he preached about how he was the messiah, and how each and every Unathi was damned if they did not redeem themselves in the eyes of Sk'akh. At first he did not care, but upon hearing more of the sermons given by this man, he discovered his honor once more, realising that his faith was misplaced; and that it is because the Unathi are damned did they lose their way; as he did himself. He soon then went to the Reavers. Wishing to protect those who could not protect themselves, and also to help redeem others as he could not be redeemed himself. It is here that he takes back his original clan’s name. Over the next three he would travel around Moghes as a Reaver, before leaving the planet once more. Here he would soon gain his title of hunter once more. Helping those in need wherever he can. By 2459 he would enter Tau Ceti space, realising he could not do what he did in the Frontier, he thought of other ways he could help. And instead became a security officer aboard the NtCC ODIN. And, in the year 2461, transferred to the NtSS Aurora. What do you like about this character? I like this character as it helps me branch out into a role I haven’t done before. Allowing me to get acquainted and learn different mechanics within the game. Both as a different occupation, but also as a different race. Allowing me to further my own abilities both game wise and also roleplaying wise. I also find the Unathi an interesting race and different to the two I am mainly used too (Humans and Skrell), hence why I think it will allow me to improve my roleplaying ability. How would you rate your role-playing ability? I have been roleplaying for a good portion of my life now (a good 7 years), both in games and also various tabletop systems and this year Space station 13. Going through the odd sever, before finding Aurora itself. I would put myself at around 8/10 on my ability.
  4. It's no issue, same on my end as I have been busy the past few weeks, trying to get a few rounds in and also updating the app as I go. I have updated it here as of typing this, if there is anything else wrong I am happy for any critisism.
  5. Okay, thank you for the feedback: I will try to log in a few rounds within the coming weeks.
  6. BYOND Key: Xevanthraxis Character Names: Sarah Edwards - Paisley Ward Species you are applying to play: Skrell What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Teal. 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 wish to play this race as they follow my own personal interests, that being science; of which would mostly be Physics and Biology. I find them interesting in these aspects, from biology to their society along with their unusual relationship with slimes and their wanton to advance scientific understanding. They also have a suspicious tendency towards synthetic life due to the Glorsh Rebellion and Glorsh Omega, this has much potential in terms of RP. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Their aspects such as their dietary needs, along with their latent telepathic ability. Being the Wake and the Dream. With Receivers and Listeners, those who influenced directly and those who just listen. The wake is more passive compared to the Dream; as whilst the wake can allow Skrell to share thoughts, the Dream can allow much more. Allowing Skrell to share both memories and emotions, this can be dangerous for those who hold secrets. However, there are precautions such as plated walls, or headsets. This along with how their society works, being - whilst similar - different from humanity such as their handling with relationships and how their humour operates. Skrell experience humour as a mild pain in the mouth, similar to spicy foods. This can be enjoyed by younger Skrell, however older members find even the most mild jokes as rude and impolite. Their familial structures are different in that Skrell do not marry, but instead form Unions: that can include from 2 to 12 members, joining and leaving is a simple process and there is no shame in leaving such a union. And whilst humans do indeed take pride in their scientific works, the Skrell take it one step further. Wanting to know more about the unknown in the universe, having a drive in my opinion is stronger than a humans. The difference in opinion on AI is also another factor, and shows that the skrell can get by without the use of AI. Character Name: Shae’Jurlp Ghlubleuc Please provide a short backstory for this character: Shae’Jurlp Ghlubleuc was born on Qerrbalak in the year 2411 to a semi-wealthy family. The family would include a member that lived during the Glorsh Rebellion, having been one of newborns to receive the Genophage from Glorsh-Omega during the years following 2098. He himself was a Xenobiologist and was one of the major members of her familial union, which would be made up of around 7 members. Her early life was filled with learning of the natural world, more so on the life that would live alongside skrell; mostly taught by Phlur’gun, the eldest family member. He would explain that there isn’t just the life on Qerrbalak, but also on the many worlds that span the galaxy. One of which she would have been told about, would be Xrim, where Phlur’gun onced worked towards the end of the Synthetic rebellion, where he would go on trips from time to time. Helping with both conservation efforts due to Glorsh-Omega having used the planet to store other Xeno species, with the Skrell living there had to deal with the new Synthetic danger along with the already dangerous wildlife. It is during her she started to pick up on his own dislike of Synthetics and AIs, however despite not liking them directly; can see why they may be needed by other species. She also developed a hate for violence in any form. Unless it is to keep her self or others safe. 2416 to 2431 CE: Is where Shea’Jurlp would study her Kindergarten years, during this time she would occasionally go with Phlur’gun on various trips around Qerrbalak, which was when she saw one of the first slimes she’d seen. She had seen pictures and stories from Phlur’gun, but this along with his stories and the wonders of life on other worlds. Spurred her inspiration to follow his work. Sadly, a few years before she managed to be accepted onto The Gliutip’lyaz University board; Phlur’gun passed away. And over the time of her life she spent with Phlur’gun she had developed a love for the natural world. Loving everything nature can give and understanding that some things need to be done to survive. 2432 to 2454 CE: Due to missing a more influential family member made the first 5 years at Gliutip’lyaz University hard for her, only just managing to pass her tests; but this only pushed her further, wanting to continue the work of Phlur’gun. Training mostly on Biology side subjects, such as Xenobiology, Anatomy and Xenobotoney. Even after the initial 5 years she still struggled in other areas, however soon managed to graduate at the end of the 23 years, gaining her PhD in Xenobiology. 2455 to 2461 CE: After having Graduated from Gliutip’lyaz University, she then moved to Aliose to continue further training in her field. She now has a residency at NNTC Odin, and works aboard the NSS Aurora as a Xenobiologist. She would have been in this residency since 2457, two years after living on Aliose. She lives on the NNTC Odin for around 10 months. Spending one month at Aliose and another at Xrim. Having been able to get in touch with a fellow, and older Xenobiologist who knew her grandfather, and allowed her to take month long trips to the overgrown world. With her love for life she doesn’t like the part of her job that is extracting the slime extract with her dislike of violence. However, only does it due to her wonton to expand her own knowledge for the betterment of others, having a great care over the slimes. She would also share notes with fellow Xenobiologist Dr.Ward, being curious on the Human’s work on Slimes and their theories on slime biology. What do you like about this character? I like this character as it follows similar interests of my own, that being biology (In her case Xeno-biology); in both flora and fauna, which would allow me to also do my own passion whilst also doing one of the activities I like doing. She also has a love for the natural world, be it other races, or the Flora and Fauna she researches. She is kind to others, offering to help however she can. And with my own knowledge on biology, incorporating what I know well allows me to make my RP more believable, allowing me to make the best out of this character. It is also completely different from my other character (Sarah), who tends to take part in simpler jobs, and in a way this is me branching outwards from my usual role when playing on the server. (Minus Paisley Ward: Who is my Xenobiologist.) How would you rate your role-playing ability? I would rate my RP ability between a 7 or 8/10. I have been doing Rp in multiple forms for a good 6 years now in games such as Gmod, as well as various tabletop games. However I have been on the slow burn lately, hoping this will get me back in action. I do often make mistakes, mostly due to the odd spelling or grammatical errors, but they usually aren’t too prevalent.
