[Withdrawn] DattMuffinMan's Head of Staff Application No.001

Recommended Posts

Application for Chief Engineer

BYOND key: Dattmuffinman

Character names: Anderson Bane, Greg Thasslethain, Reyonld Sylveste.

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: A week

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I have mastered engineering(aside from atmosphere which by the time this whitelist has been approved of will be dealt with) enough to fill in as head when there isn't one around, and the station is falling apart because of it.

Why did you come to Aurora?:I saw the term(HEAVY ROLEPLAY), and was all for it. In fact this is the first spacestation server I've ever played. Lucky me, good community.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?:Yes

Please provide well articulated and argument-ed answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:Roleplay is escapism at its core, a game we can play with each other on the outside, and finally a place where we can break all the rules if we wish. We make characters we love or hate, and roleplay them until their sticky, or boring ends.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To represent the department, to lead, to manage. Head's of staff are akin to general's in the fact they most know their men/women/anyother sexual orientationed personal enough to trust them with the jobs assigned to them. To uphold a view of the larger picture, and lead where help is needed most for the station.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:The responsibilities of whitelisted players to others is to uphold a quality of roleplay. To not ruin it for everybody else with incompetence or horribly performed roleplay.

I will strive and endeavor with my creativity to improve, and learn every aspect of any whitelisted position earned. I will also not always follow the rules of the Head of Staff to create interesting situations(a little crime always helps a roleplay along) whilst not compromising the station in a moments breadth like an arse.

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

Character name:Greg Thasslethain

Character age:46

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):Greg is a citizen of the Sol Alliance, a 10 year veteran from a deep space exploration voyage. He set out and left behind everything for a high-paying Nanotrasen contract aboard the exploration vessel “The Last Envoy”. The contract ended up lasting 10 years before a return to civilized space.

The purpose of this contract was exploration in a specified star belt close to the core of the galaxy, however any other information is not disclosed to any potential employers, as Nanotrasen has redacted such information. Greg has performed and was trained for various roles upon such a independent vessel. He excels in engineering skills from experience and training, but also has rudimentary skills from experiences aboard the vessel, the following which are; First aid, close combat, and finally weapon handling. Greg is deemed by Nanotrasen employment review, reliable and recommended for rehiring for Nanotrasen operations.

What do you like about this character?: I enjoy that he is a hybrid human, his limbs entirely mechanical, it adds some depth to the medical roleplay when you need a roboticist in a snitch and there is none. I also enjoy this character's strange sort of honesty, sure he'll tell you the truth, but it doesn't mean he'll keep lies/secrets from you on the occasion. That's how he avoids problems caused by lying, don't tell or lie, and you'll be fine. At his core Greg cares for other human lives despite his rough exterior. He has a social stance like that of a Sergeant.

What do you dislike about this character?:He can be stern and quiet most of the time, stubborn at others. He is hard to get into a close relationship with.

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff?:Yes.

Why?:He is a veteran of running independent space vessels in deprived extremes. He may not have much command experience, but can make it up with sheer knowledge and know how on how to keep everyone in a pressurized tin can alive.

Please provide well articulated and argument-ed answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:I would rate it at... 8.5/10 and improving. As I get to know other character's better, and develop my own more. Some of the recent rps have been getting intense for me and others involved.

Extra notes: I've only been playing this game for a week, however I've learned pretty quick a lot of the positions I've dabbled in and have pretty much got engineering down, and Forensic's mastered. I can't wait to get into some head roles for the community, and make things interesting and roleplay stuffed.

Not to nitpick here, but he's a half-human, half-cyborg combat-medical-engineer that served as a Veteran for the Sol Alliance before taking part in a highly classified contract with NanoTrasen? A contract, that is so classified, nobody is allowed to know about it, and has since been redacted?

Feels like a couple black bars should be pulled off the dossier for that contract.

And by that, I mean a lot. NSS Aurora is a civilian station, if you're a private contractor, you're better off elsewhere.

Ahh replies, such beautiful gifts from the forums.

No he isn't a private contractor(As in space mercenary..), yes he contracted for "Nanotrasen", Information pretaining to his employments specifics other than the fact he was in the deep space exploration vehicle for the amount of time shown; is strictly redacted. You would need captain level clearence, and the Head of security would probably have access aswell.

NO he did not work for Sol Alliance during his contract. He was a citizen inhabiting the Altair system, before he was offered such a contract by Nanotrasen. Also all space related contracts in his employment records have been Nanotrasen contracts.

The replies help me alot. As I said I'm new, and this was made up within less an hour. This tells me I need to read up on our RP background alot more. And fine tune this application aswell as the character.

So in the end thank you for your feedback! Tomorrow I will update some of the specifics for your viewing pleasure, and hopefully we can get somewhere.

It's okay to list what you consider as classified onto the background information, you can just put an OOC note that the information is classified to certain heads anyway.

It merely adds more depth to what your character did/or was/is capable of.

For now this is fine. I'll give it two weeks, and post another application. SO this application may be considered closed until further notice by my request at least. I have made a re-visioned version of this post, and will continue to add to it for when I'm back in the white list thread. Thank you all for your feedback.
