[Denied] Kreylawn21's Head of Staff Whitelist application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Kreylawn21

Character names: Miguel Hoenshell, Zachariah Levett

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I've been playing playing aurora for quite long, don't remember exactly how long but it was my first server.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I've been playing here for a while now and I feel that I have enough game knowledge and will to be able to play as a Head of Staff. I enjoy playing normal roles but I feel like I am willing to carry more responsibility and to be more influential on the round. My preferred role would be the CMO.

Why did you come to Aurora?: My friend introduced me to this server and ever since, I've been playing a lot. I enjoy heavy role-play because, unlike low RP or medium RP, you feel like you have a role that you must carry.

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes

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:

Role-play is to act and speak as if you are the character you're portraying. Basically all the speech said must be within the settings of the character you are looking to portray. Role-play is in itself an art of creating a story that entertains everyone partaking in the said RP. Role-playing should be all about fun and immersion. RP is limitless, and the possibilities are infinite, there is just so much you can do without finding any borders at all.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

The OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is keeping to round flowing and making every second of it interesting for every single crew member. The heads of staffs are often faced with hard obstacles that they need to overcome by being calm and decisive. Being a Head of Staff is all about decision making and and decisions made should be right ones. For example, as CMO you need to make sure that the whole medical department is fuctioning well, and that everyone under you is doing their job, while giving the people playing as personnel in your department objectives to make the round more entertaining for them. Therefore I believe that a Head of Staff is mandatory to keep the round going and to ensure that everyone is having fun.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of White-listed players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

White-listed players are often counted on to make decisions for the other players, therefore it is one of their main responsibilities to perform this task to ensure that everything is going smoothly. These players are also responsible for keeping the round flowing, and giving players a chance to role-play properly while guiding them and making it interesting for everyone partaking in the said role-play. Another duty White-listed players are responsible for is making sure to give antagonists a chance to role-play without valid-hunting making sure that every department would be able to partake in the role-play.

Please pick one of your characters for this section, and provide well articulated responses to the following questions.

Character name: Zachariah Levett

Character age: 42

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):

Born in 2411, Zachariah Levett is a 178 cm tall young man who strives to become the best doctor there is. Emerging from planet Earth of Sol, Zach was one of the best students of the Lunar University of Medical Sciences. Graduating with a doctorate in Medecine and Surgery, then taking a course in management to get a bachelor's degree. The man loves Medicine. He loves every aspect of it, and mainly its purpose, which is saving people.

Being a single child, Zachariah was surrounded by two loving parents who supported his every action. His father and mother were both in the medical field. His dad, Arnold Levett was a medical doctor, meanwhile his mother Aria Fintz was a nurse. Having been raised in such a household, Zach was very fond of his parents' jobs. Therefore he chose to pursue the same career. After graduating University, Zach's father passed away due to a terminal space disease. Unable to save him, Zachariah got into a whirlwind off despair and guilt. However, his father know beforehand what was going to happen and left a will to his son. A paper with one sentence. It was this small sentence what fueled Levett's desire to become the best doctor there is. "Live on, and save lives."

What do you like about this character?:

I love how this character strives to break his limitations to become an amazing doctor.

What do you dislike about this character?:

I don't like how my character is always working and doesn't give much important to social interactions.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?:

Zachariah has vast knowledge in his field and knows very well how lead a team and guide them.

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I believe my role-play is a 7/10. I really enjoy rp'ing and I love to take it to the next level with non script actions as well as adding in some (Me")s.

Extra notes: I believe that if I manage to become white-listed I can create a lot of fun RP for the medical team and for the whole crew.

I haven't actually played with your chars so I'll just comment based on the app itself.

First, it's nice when the headers are in bold, much easier to read and think that is the way the format is supposed to be.

Second, the character doesn't seem to fulfill the requirements on the job's wiki page being 5 years too young and not having a bachelors in Management.

Third, I'm sorry but I really dislike the last part in the biography about the will. It sounds more like the intro to a superhero than something for a whitelist.

Thanks for the input, I really appreciate the feedback. I edited the post to make the character fulfill the requirements about the job. As for the biography I'm willing to change if it turns out that it's disliked. Also hope we can play sometime.

Kreylawn21 plays one of the best doctors that have ever helped through my frequent round injuries, he knows his stuff, memorized the wiki quite well, and doesn't take the famous wiki pause most doctors are know for, he is fast and efficient, does his paperwork and uses the medbay facility quite well.

10/10 would make him a lunch box again.

As for the story it's a bit standard, father dies and leaves will, motivates his son to do so and so, but i can't complain, he has good motives and you don't need to write a novel about your character.

I hope you get accepted!

I've played some shifts with Zachariah Levett (he's medical doctor) and he does some fun stuff as a doc. He does these medical check ups where he uses stethoscope and penlight and roleplays a lot. I definitely give him a +1. Would love to see what sort of RP he'll create as CMO.
