  1. @PoZe I dont think it should be something team antagonists should be able to op out of. As otherwise they cannot coordinate with the rest of their team.
  2. Application accepted! I really wanta see how your character develops, and a key part of that development will be how your character obtains their avowal.
  3. Looks like its gonna get merged despite dissenting opinions ☹️. I suggest making the staff have a long cooldown, so it cant be used as a weapon. Next, make the transformation delayed, maybe giving the player some emotes. @ParadoxSpace What do you think
  4. Also, I have gotten some reports about your excellent character roleplay too.
  5. This is a very good application, and the approach you have and the reason your character has for coming to the Aurora is certainly interesting. I cant wait to see this character in action. I love creative writing, and this certainly showcases creative thinking! Application accepted!
  6. The OOC purpose of a head of staff in game is to drive round narrative. Driving round narrative is an umbrella term that includes but is not limited to; Recognizing and responding to antagonist activity, Promoting and developing realistic expectations in your department and with other players, thus increasing immersion. Promoting inclusive roleplaying, in yourself and other players, allowing them and yourself involved in the activities of a round in a realistic manner to make more dynamic and enjoyable roleplaying experiences for everyone. Roleplaying in abstract is recognizing that you are a part in the narrative of a larger story, and that by your actions, your relationships, your behaviors, you become small parts in the larger web of a story. Effecting and being effected by others, crafting a narrative together for the enjoyment of everyone roleplaying.
  7. BYOND key: BygoneHero Character names: I also play as the AI Ancillary, Cynosure, Mum, LORE, BEDLAM How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I don't remember how long, maybe since 2014-2015? Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: To play the hive representative role that I helped design Why did you come to Aurora?: Because I was looking for a certain kind of role playing experience, and where-ever I went it seemed to vanish over time, Apollo,Paradise are a few servers I've been on. Aurora has not yet lost qualities I am looking for, and I have become active in the community to ensure that it never does. 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?I've been permabanned before and probably others, they were a long time ago I cannot remember. 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 inhabiting a characters persona outside or parallel to your own. While also developing the role to eventually include tangential things outside of the scope of our games code. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To drive round narrative, but I do not intend to play a head of staff, of my years playing this game, I have never had an urge to. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I've written about this extensively, and I believe the OCC responsibilities of whitelisted players are as I said, to try and move a rounds arc along. If the crux of the antagonists plot is to rely on the ineptitude of a head of staff, then the head of staff should realize that, and adjust themselves accordingly. However, in practice this is not what happens. Antagonists are shut down more often than not as quickly as can be done, sometimes without even most of the crew even being aware of the antagonists existence. Perhaps this is a result of how heavily we push command staff to behave within IC parameters that do not agree with our expectations of their role OOC. If the role a head of staff has to play in a round requires them to be lenient, they should be so. If it requires them to be ruthless, they should be so. The adherence to regulation is in of itself a flaw in how heads of staff are treated. It prevents them from roleplaying the best case scenario for that particular round. Couple this with them having something to lose, and you have created the very thing we as a community do not want from their heads of staff, Command that shuts down a round before it has a chance to even begin. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? The arrival of the Lii'dra has sent the Zo'ra hive into overdrive. It has caused them to bury their enclaves deeper into the economic web work of humanity. This has manifested as more low cost labor being outsourced to their hive, while also promoting the TCFL as part of a long term goal to dilute humanities influence within Tau Ceti. By getting more aliens patriotic for Tau Ceti, over time, human sociopolitical dominance will wane. This is made manifest within my character, as Ta'Akaix'Xaol Zo'ra as a new hive representative for the Nanotrasen Megacorporation. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Counsel/Corporate Liaison Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Ta'Akaix'Xaol Zo'ra, Counsel/Corporate Liaison How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Between 800 Florps and 4000 Dorps Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?Yes Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes Extra notes:
  8. This reads to me like, "I like this design and I am tired of building it myself for 10 minutes every time I play roboticist :(" The current design is fine. Suggestions like removing the morgue and conveyor belt I could get behind though.
  9. This is a very good application, and it showcases what I love most about character apps. Creative writing. I have no doubt you would be great at this Moon, application accepted!

  13. I'll be accepting this. I am eager to see how you play. Remember to develop your character and ask if you have any questions, we are literally the nerds who love answering them. I'll be watching!
  14. Paradox helps people understand lore and I love them for it, but it has been frustrating having to carry virtually all of the lore writing burden concerning the Vaurca species. Every event planned has been hosted by me. Every arc has been hosted by me, written by me. The wiki, edited mostly by me. This isn't me complaining about my workload, but it is hard to point to anything concerning lore that Paradox has actually done and I know they can write. It makes it even more frustrating that they can, but cannot bring themselves to put in the effort.
