[ACCEPTED] Dark1Star's Command Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Dark1Star

Character names:Jake Jarvis, John Normandy, Xiquilixqip Sherup'Gell

 

How long have you been playing on Aurora?:about a year now.

 

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:Well, I’ve been thinking of doing a Command Whitelist for ages now, I just never really thought about doing it up until now. I think it would be really cool to have a command character, and join the ranks of command. Sometimes I feel like I could do well in a command posistion, that's not security intensive like HoS, so I'm thinking of putting it to the test. I would never make Jake a HoS mostly because being a HoS is... stressful. I have felt like making a HoP in the past and it seems like I could do well with that.

 

Why did you come to Aurora?:Well, I recently left college, and I was bored, and the SSeth video reminded me of SS13, I’ve been playing the game since 2012 now, and I was reminded of it after I took a long break from it. I decided to do some HRP servers, and the thing that drew me to this server were Hardsuits funny enough. I remember the server being key for having Hardsuits, I stuck around because I enjoy playing with this community, the admins are pretty chill, I have made many friends here as well, the events are also fantastic.

 

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 got like… 29 notes, and I’ve had two warnings that expired months ago, the warnings were for minor things that I used to do back in the day, but I believe I have learned from my mistakes and become a much better roleplayer on this server.

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 about taking an idea, a character, or a story, into your hands, and making it your own. Having other people take part in the story to improve on the roleplay, and having fun overall, create that story by making a character and involve them in events, situations and just talking to people in general. Roleplay is taking a story, and making it your own.

 

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:Heads of Staff are there to help drive a story, when an antag comes aboard, it is your job, if you are the only command member at the time, is to communicate with the crew, keep them in the loop so they feel involved in the antag’s story/gimmick. As the only command member sometimes, you just need to help everyone you can, people will rely on you.

 

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Whitelisted players serve has some form of mentor role I think, when someone is new to the server, they can look to you, who has a Command Whitelist, that they can ask you questions, and you can answer them. If I was to up-hold this, I would do my best to help everyone I can, if I see someone running around struggling I would ask if they need any help in LOOC. If they need more help, I will A-Help them and see if a moderator/admin can help them out a bit more than I could.

IC, I think as I said above, Command members are there to help drive a story in the round, and keep other players involved in the current round happenings. 

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career?: Diemi has been working in the Republic of Elyra all his life, from a young age he was all about making money, doing jobs for people while he was young, trading items for other items, valuables for valuables. As he grew older, he became a business man, a some-what successful business man working in the capital, making the credits and doing usual business man stuff, however it all took a change when the Lii'dra somewhat recently invaded. Killing his father who he looked up to a lot, which caused him to have an almost natural hatred for Vacura, even if they are not Lii'dra. He has a dislike for Skrell as well, thinking the Federation are full of them selves, being better than everyone else. Hearing about the recent... "attack" on the Federation archives almost brings a smile to his face. War is great for business afterall...

 

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?:I will make a Head of Personnel, I plan to make other afterwards, such as my Skrell Scientist Xiq, into a Research Director one day, after he has become more known and been on the station long enough.
 

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking:I will be making a Head of Personnel, (or a captain.) Depends on how I decide to make them once I finish them up, Jake will never be Command, Normandy will never be an RD, my Skrell will be an RD ONE day. As it stands for now however, I will make a HoP or a Captain, (going for the big one here ooo boy.) Because form personal experience I do not see them a lot.

The HoPs name will be Diemi Mayaki (Pronounced, Di-Emi May-Aki), a human male standing at around 6ft, the ethnicity of "Wasat" from Perispolis in the Republic of Elyra.

 

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Perhaps a 6 or 7, I like to think I have improved over my time playing. Some people have noted that I have improved as well.

 

Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?: Yes, as with any other whitelist, it can be stripped at a moments notice. Though these are more strictly combed.

 

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?: Yes.

 

Extra notes:Hi mom, hi dad. You know who you are.

Hey Jarvis.

You're pretty cool. Froskur probably won't forgive you for being a turncoat, but that's okay.

As one of the people who has interacted a lot, and I mean, a lot with Jake, I give him my Worthless Dishwasher™ seal of approval. Solid RPer, good understanding of game mechanics and overall a nice face to see whenever I'm playing, I would love to see him in command.

+1 from me.

Jake is a very good RPer with a good understanding of how the game works, mechanics and such as well.

Jarvis is an avid player, and I often see them during the low-pop hours of [my] the mornings. He's an established player, who has formed connections to many of the players aboard the Aurora (incluing me) and I really think they'd be a good asset to the Command team during the low-pop hours. 

 

A big +1 from me.

The amount of times I made you slap yourself makes me feel pointed out here ^^

You improved a ton over your time and I enjoy your characters. You stay in them and act in a believable manner.

Haven't had to slap you OOCly recently, which is good. In my books more then ready for command, just be prepared to get bwoinked more, just comes with the whitelist :P

You've shown that you care and that you have capability to improve. All past misgivings aside, I would be very much looking forward to see how you will perform in your trial.

I hate to be this guy, but at the moment, I'm not too sure I like the idea of you playing in a command role. I'm not sure if it's just the character or if it's you, due to you mostly playing as Jarvis, but the behaviour of Jarvis I saw in one round kind of soured me on the idea- acting in a generally unprofessional, unebelievable way for a security officer to act. When he was then demoted for it, he immediately resorted to calling command members cunts over the radio, then just instantly cryo'd. Not the kind of behaviour I want to see from a potential command player.

For now, I'm giving this a -1.

This was all IC, Jake gets eaisly annoyed when things don't go his way. Me and the player of the CE who was the cause of this happening, already talked this out over discord and there's nothing bad involved. It was just our chracters being characters. The reason I cryo'd however, was because A, it was extended, and B, I'm not a fan of playing a cadet.

I'm pretty fine with this, but the only thing that worries me is the fact that your HoS dislikes Skrell which irks me the wrong way because it feels like a small way to almost force them into the Warbling events, which I know you yourselve have been involved in as a conspirator w/ Jake and all. Before the events, Jargon was very quiet so humans mostly had a neutral outlook on them or a positive one based on what Fedcitizen Skrell said.

 

This is all just suspicion though- I really just don't want to see a HoS who would act unreasonable and stupidly deny tups basic things which I am sure won't happen over a little skeptic paranoia.

There's a good chance I won't be playing this character during the warble events. Mostly because I am focusing on Jake at the moment. Though I do understand your skepticism.

Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said, good RPer, have seen him interm plenty of times very successfully. +1

You've improved since your start on the server as Normandy but I'm not sure I trust your capability to handle a command role just yet. You seem to want to spotlight a bit too much, and that worries me for command. You have a history of being hesitant to accept consequences for your actions, though perhaps that's no longer true; your arrest during Warbling was handled well at the time. We'll see if you stick to any consequences. Your RP isn't terrible but you still seem to struggle here and there with powergaming. 

All in all, I think you're a good candidate for a trial, since I don't see any reason to deny you the chance outright. I remain skeptical, but, as always, I hope to be surprised. In any case, good luck.

I've seen Darkstar's HoP in a few rounds, they play the role well and how you'd expect an HoP to play, not playing as some sort of secondary captain or interm HoS when there is none, which I've noticed a select few HoP's have quite the problem with. All in all, he deserves the whitelist more then some who currently have it, without even having to mention his good RP ability. I stand by my +1

Had a couple good rounds with them, really enjoyed their HoP. Thought he'd take over as HoS when there was none, but he kept to his department and really promoted RP with the antags instead of "shoot them all". Good work so far. Staying with my +1 on this.

I held off for a bit for feedback and it seems to have paid off.
