Barman (3/37)

  1. Acknowledged. If an immediate situation does come up in the future, I'll let staff know. Otherwise I'll just cryo and (hopefully) come back out later, as long as it doesn't interfere with anything.
  2. So if this kind of situation were to come up again, it would be alright if I sent in a ticket saying I might not come back and to cryo me after 30 or so minutes? If not, please elaborate on what I should do instead. If this is okay, then thank you for suggesting it. If that's all, I can definitely start asking to be cryo'd if I don't come back.
  3. BYOND Key: DeteledSawI Total Ban Length: 3 days Banning staff member's Key: wickedcybs Reason of Ban: AFK for more than an hour, never came back. Reason for Appeal: I am not disagreeing with the ban, and admit I'm bad about AFKing like this. It's usually a this'll only take a few minutes situation that takes far longer than a few minutes. In my defense, the last time this happened was last May, the first being almost a year ago. I also feel like 3 days is a bit much considering everything. TL;DR, I've been gone for about a month and a half or so and was looking forward to playing. I'm really sorry for AFKing like this, sometimes stuff comes up. Please forgive me.
  4. So, I'm making a Himean roboticist, and I definitely want him to have some relations to the Scarabs, so I was thinking about having him spend a few years on the Jotunheimr. I also want him to get trained in the arts of robot making while he's there, so is the Fleet like giant cities with stores and homes, or more like the Odin? If the latter is true, are the stores like small markets or are there actual small, locally owned companies that do their own thing in there? As for spending time part, would it be likely for a Frontiersman to be welcomed on a Fleet ship, or would they just be a visitor? I want him to have spent a lot of time and effectively leave as an honorary Scarab, but still a Himean.
  5. Yes, I mean for docking ports, the ability to rent a docking space (not just for houses), nothing more than a tube that leads into an apartment-esque hall and park your ship in there and go to the middle and buy yourself something to eat. Like a bed and breakfast. The ability to park on the Odin was also supported by a system to rent a dock through NT.
  6. My wonderful brain thought about the equivalent of camping trailers for space, and I got houseships. As someone who lives on one of said house-ships, where would one park it? I asked about it in-game and got the idea of ship docking stations that act like bed & breakfasts, and also was given the idea that the NSS Odin might allow for renting docking ports and was told to come here since it was a very specific question. So, what do I stick on my records, is what i'm asking? I live on a ship; I don't have a planet or adress.
  7. Byond key: DeteledSawI Discord key: cud#2099 Character Name: Darrak Torigg Item name: 'PhD' Item function(s): Pressing Z or clicking on it whilst in-hand will switch from open to closed. Makes the paper rustling sound and says 'You unroll the paper.' and 'You roll up the paper.' when opened and closed, respectively. Item description: 'A rolled up sheet of paper. Looks official.' (When closed.) 'A PhD for Skrellian Language & Literature / Architectural studies. Looks official.' (When open.) Why is your character bringing this item to work?: As a Himean, he has a harsh accent and long, unruly hair. Often misconstrued with the lowly homeless beggar, it helps to have a PhD. If not to convince people you're smart, it's nice to have it displayed somewhere as a something to look at for support. How did your character obtain this item: Years and years of hard school work while balancing a coal mining job. It wasn't easy, but what fun would it be if you could just go grab one off of a shelf somewhere? What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: It's not for sale. Himean life is harsh, and most of them end up as miners- For Torigg, this is proof that he's better than what people expect from him at first glance. Archeology still hits close to home, though. Sprites: The two stamped scroll sprites in the wizard.dmi file. Additional Comments: Since the PhD is about Skrellian language and literature, how would being able to read and write in fishe speak sound?
  8. Byond key: DeteledSawI Discord key: cud#2099 Character Name: Darrak F. Torigg Item name: 'journal' (Lowercase as advertised.) Item functions(s): Glorified piece of paper. Blank inside, you can write in it. Item description: 'A synthleather book bound by thread to hold your thoughts. ARTIFACTS is broadly written across the front.' Why is your character bringing this item to work?: As a xenoarcheologist, you've got to have somewhere to log your studies of ancient stuff. What better than an old leather journal? How did your character obtain this item: It was worth 50 credits at NTMart. It's just a synthleather notebook, if a bit old. What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: It doesn't really have physical worth as much as it does.. Well, any value really, besides to that of the author. It keeps the absentminded thoughts of the holder, serving as an unrefined biography. It tells the story of the holder's everyday life, and it's worth as much as the holder, divided by a few exponents. The journal of a famous captain is going to be worth more than some miner on an asteroid. Sprites: I opened up a pixel art maker and made a sprite. Happy with how it turned out. Additional Comments: I think if not a custom item, this would be a great loadout item to have.
  9. So, I want to try to get into Xenoarcheology, and there's two things I'm trying to find out. 1. What's it like? Can somebody describe it to me? 2. What kind of alien artifacts are we looking at here? Skrell? Mystery artifacts?
  10. Well, two things. One, this isn't just any action figure lying around in maintenance, this is an ultra rare limited edition figure, 1 out of 100. In the entire galaxy. That's a lot of galaxy and not a lot of figures. Two, it's like a trophy. A source of great pride, to be displayed for all to see. In reality, a dart crossbow and a few foam darts from cargo would be worth more than that- but it's not about actual, solid value, it's about personal value. And as a librarian, I have a display desk where I display all of my fun toys, so of course this one would go up there.
  11. Byond key: DeteledSawI Discord key: cud#2099 Character Name: Joshua Browning Item name: golden captain action figure (lowercase, as written) Item function(s): Absolutely nothing. It’s an action figure. Item description: A "Space Life" brand captain action figure. Coated in REAL faux gold, only a hundred of these limited-edition figures were made. Why is your character bringing this item to work?: Because action-figure hunting is a hobby (as librarians have a lot of free time) and having a limited edition figure to display is a great source of pride. How did your character obtain this item: Bought off of sBay for 200 credits, (a slight markup,) he opened it to his delight and found the figure. One in a million chance, just about. What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: To a normal person, 100 credits. Maybe 300 if you could convince someone it’s real gold. But to Josh? This is invaluable. This thing is the best thing a collector could want- It doesn't tell as much of a story as it does stand around and look pretty. Sprites: The captain action figure, but golden-yellow. Y'know, because it's golden? Additional Comments: If anyone knows, I’d like to know which action figures aren’t in the game. It'd save me a lot of time.
  12. 1. Well, me being who I am, I don't 100% understand where or how one 20-something year old would acquire a brain in Mars Uni, so I assumed the brain was left in the chassis. Basically, he was reset and was like a baby; He had to learn to walk and so on, so forth- If that's not enough (which is totally fine) do you have any ideas? 2. Duncan died in SolGov space, bedridden on Mars. Mark had gotten citizenship with the Sol Alliance when he was about 13 but chose to stay with Duncan, as that was the best and only idea he had. I will most definitely expand on the backstory, I just have to spend 2 hours writing in my notepad draft, so gimmie a bit please. Actually, give me all the bits. I need more knowledge. Aha-ha.
  13. BYOND Key: DeteledSawI Character Name(s): Markus Thomasson (only got the one; i don’t have a concrete concept so i just switch jobs frequently) Species: Baseline Model IPC Species Color: N/A Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes, very frequently. Why do you wish to play this specific race: Well for the longest time I just wanted to be a robot because it was flashy and looked cool. I originally thought about becoming a Hephaestus G2 Industrial Frame, but after a while and time had passed, I really began to research IPCs, thinking for a bit and deciding a baseline in particular would be an excellent frame to incorporate my ideas, in contrast to the bulky G2 frames. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: They don’t have to or need to breathe, but this allows all models to go in any atmosphere whether it contains oxygen or not. This means some models can also go into space without a suit, but would otherwise need one- Regardless, they need suit coolers in the place of oxygen tanks due to the amount of heat they generate. They are also (for the most part) immune to poisons, unfeeling both physically and emotionally, and are most notably, mechanical. They go to Roboticists for injuries and can have their brain put back into different IPC shells if they die. Character Name: Mark Backstory: Mark was a baseline frame created on Mars by a young, 24 year old, human Mars University resident named Duncan. He was an aspiring roboticist who went to Mars University, longing to work for Hephaestus and had found a discarded frame which he repaired to working condition. Mark woke up with a practically blank mind and no insight on how to act like an IPC- It took weeks of work, but Duncan taught it to do basic things like walking and talking, some of which it picked up by itself. Mark worked in the university alongside Duncan until he graduated, whereas Mark left the university to work at Hephaestus Industries only to be snatched up by NT with a exemplary offer. In Duncan’s home, Mark was both a servant and a friend, whereas Duncan taught him how do paperwork and cleaning while Duncan was at work, with Mark was working as his accountant, butler, and rarely his assistant with work. He was above all considered Duncan's friend and equal, and at the age of 13, Duncan got Mark citizenship with ASSN. Eventually, he retired and travelled space selling his wares and services: the tech support of the stars. Recently, Mark’s master Duncan has passed at the age of 61, who miraculously left him his money and possessions where he was lacking family. Mark, lacking the only one who was and always had been his purpose, sought out work- Like his owner, he went to Hephaestus- But this was cut short by an offer to work at Nanotrasen. gladly accepting due to the similar circumstances Duncan was in, and is now on its way to Aurora Station, to find employment and a new purpose. What do you like about this character? I like the concept of mark, because I based it off of things like Star Wars (Anakin making C3PO) and the fact that he both has a versatile store of knowledge and has gained freedom and a rudimentary understanding of complex things like emotions and friendship. How would you rate your role-playing ability?: 7/10. Not perfect, but better than average. Notes: Duncan was never a builder, he rather learned to code complex devices. As an effect of this, he taught Mark human behaviors in a way it could understand. He can mimic pain: For example, jerking a foot away and holding it after hitting a table. He also has a rudimentary understanding of emotions but doesn’t understand things like wanting to be left alone, and gets confused when others refuse things like help. An adverse effect of Duncan not being a builder is the fact Mark still has hardware problems like shutting down somewhat randomly, 37 years after his creation.
