  1. My thoughts haven't changed, but I will bump them again at Danse's request. There are rare exceptions to wizard rounds being bad (I just came out of one) but the overall sentiment still applies, and it isn't worth wading through the 9/10 funny meme ones to get to the one that's actually halfway passable and conducive to a high roleplay server.
  2. Hi, I'd like to ask for an extension on this. I didn't play at all last week on account of the scale of the ongoing event catching me a little off-guard; I wasn't really up for figuring out a way to introduce new characters during a total Aurora lockdown that made any sense to me.
  3. I am interested in the permanent repercussions of the arc much more so than the arc itself. I don't know if a week of Solarian ghost roles and a flat lore ban on your character living anywhere than the Aurora for X amount of time is really what I was expecting or hoping for. For me, this arc peaked at Clandestine -- which was wonderfully mysterious and exciting in every way except for the hellish lag. Everything since then has been a steady spiral downwards -- from the conspiracy that suffered very hard from having already-established players monopolise it and the generated activity/intri
  4. BYOND Key: Omicega Character names: Alicia Parker -- Security Guard Yingmei -- Bartender I have others, but these two are by far the most significant and well-known, I think. How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Two months now in a solid block. I dabbled for a few days at a time in the past, but this is the first time I've really seriously played here. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist? I want to play some of the head of staff roles as well as a consular officer from time to time. I'll be honest and say that I don't really see why these roles are gated
  5. Can I bump this without being crucified? I hope so. This is event is doubly annoying for bartenders now that fragile glassy items smash when thrown. It is also infinitely more annoying for IPCs, who can get whacked with a vendor-tossed item and have to go bug a roboticist to fix the red overlay they get treated to for the rest of the round. I don't know if I've ever seen rampant brand intelligence add something in the way other events can. Carp migrations and spider outbreaks stimulate some kind of interaction, the blob pulls engineering into the mix with an emitter, and so on. RBI d
  6. Wizard is absolute anathema to a high roleplay environment. It boggles my mind that the lore writers and staff team as a whole here have gone to such lengths to craft such a high-quality roleplay environment and maintain its integrity over all these years, only to let it regularly get dumped on by the clown fiesta that is wizard. I don't even really care that it's low-impact on its own; to me, any round type that has wizard in it is just straight up worse off for it. There is nothing immersive about Mungo the Magnificient materialising on the station at 12:15 to grab the spare and then ca
  7. I have had my disagreements with Robotic in the past, but having played with them and seen them play in a fair few rounds on Aurora -- both as their consular Nguyen and their warden Palmero -- I can easily give them a +1. I can only second the above poster in that their consular got me very interested in Gadpathur.

I feel like this question is mostly meant to crop up for Skrell or Unathi whitelists. I'm planning on making a shell, though. Have you read our lore section's page on this species? I have, and I feel as if I have a good overview of them. Please provide w

Somewhere between a kind of minty teal and a watery light blue. The colour on display on their wiki page is a very neat sort of aqua and it's extremely tempting. Have you read our lore section's page on this species? I have. There are a lot of them, and I was tabbing around most or all of
  10. offensive social coding Never did I ever expect to read something like this said entirely without irony. Taking offense at pixel cigarettes is, frankly, ridiculous, and I don't know if having one (1) other person who allegedly thinks the same as you is enough to make it rational or reasonable. I don't see why you need mechanics to back up simply roleplaying disliking nearby smokers or smoking in the workplace. You don't need game mechanics to tell you that having someone next to you smoke is disgusting -- you just, you know, act like it. Is all the complaint in the OP about b
  11. Aren't you the guy who stalked one-- or was it two? -- people on CM really hard because you thought they were girls in real life? Somehow it doesn't surprise me that you'd be unstable in general and otherwise thoroughly unsuited for a mod position.
  12. Hello, As a certified CM addict, I only barely play here on Aurora but I take credit for bringing Wildkins here. I've known him for a long time now (since 2013? 2014) and he's always been nothing short of enthusiastic and personable when he gets involved in something. The poor guy is highRP as heck but barely even plays, as far as I know, because he's so busy staying up until 6am or something chasing bugs that he doesn't have time. Either that or he genuinely enjoys it, which is frankly frightening. Anyway, I don't think my vouch counts for jack but I feel at least a bit compelled to
