[Accepted] Devildabeast's Command Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Devildabeast
Character names: spacer.png

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: A few months! I had a break last year, but have been playing consistently late last year throughout this year.
Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I want more job-based opportunities for roleplay and interaction to be open to me, and what better way to do that than with the Representative role?
Why did you come to Aurora?: I'm always seeking new venues for roleplay environments, and Aurora caught my eye when I was trying places other than Baystation. I've been very committed to it, only going back to Bay for a while last year, ever since.
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? Nope!

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 a system of entertainment and interaction between two or more parties. It's all about conveying something outside of yourself, and presenting it in a way that's enjoyable to others and to create a world and setting outside of our own. Of course, it takes a lot of creativity and inventiveness to make it work, not just from yourself, but from the people you're playing with. When done right, it takes you into something that you could never experience in day-to-day life otherwise, and lets you create a whole world that everyone involved contributes to.

 

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:
Heads of Staff are meant to delegate the responsibilities of their respective departments, acting as managers and even representatives for those departments. While it's important to know all the important components of your department, the main purpose certainly isn't to be a jack-of-all-trades or specialist, but to, again, be a leader to your department, trusted with all the extra duties and abilities that entails, including sending faxes and suspending employees. It's certainly not to be superior to anyone else or have more power.

 

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

While keeping the game progressing and being entrusted with additional responsibilities are certainly important things for any whitelistee to do, especically on other servers, I believe that first and foremost on Aurora, ensuring that a superior and interesting roleplay environment takes precedent. I see many people who take on SS13 for the "action" component, and while that is perfectly fine, I myself come to Aurora for a more "slice of life" approach (beyond every-round antaggery and special events, of course) where I can truly explore the nuance of a character and their environment, and Heads of Staff and aliens should both be there to expand on that possibility with career management and multiculturalism respectively.

 

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau Ceti and how it affected your character and their career?

Among other things, Tau Ceti is still recovering from the aftermath of a hostile embargo from the Sol Alliance. Tensions are high, and the Coalition itself doesn't foster much respect for Sol after the Interstellar War. Lelise would be likely to expound on this, attempting to improve relations with the independence-valuing Republic however she can. The Federation attack on the Aurora is also likely to have left a sour taste in her mouth, leaving her unsupportive of the Skrell's (in her eyes) authoritarian government. She is more likely to be supportive of rebels, along with other alien employees.

 

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Most likely? Just the Representative role. I can't honestly foresee myself being any actual Heads of Staff down the line.

 

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:

Lelise Marimo - Consular Officer

 

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:

As I've stated in my alien applications: Somewhere above average! I definitely try to put a lot of thought into the spirit of the game and my interaction with others, although my playstyle tends to be experiential, with ideas being solidified as things go along, rather than premeditated, with lots of background already packed in. I consider both styles to be good if done right!

 

Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? I do.

Have you familiarized yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes!

 

Extra notes: None at this time.

Devil is a wonderful person who has, time and again, shown their superiority at roleplay. It's always a joy to see Hawun or Annie around, as the ones I tend to see the most on the list there, and they definitely know what it's all about. Big +1.

Per my recommendations on his other applications; he puts quite a bit of effort and research into predominantly RP-focused roles, particularly Chaplain, which would leave me very curious to see what he'd bring to the table for Consular. +1

I've been playing with this dork for years and he always delivers a consistent and enjoyable experience with the various weirdos he concocts. I would be more than happy to let his characters tell me what to do. +1

Did some bartending (albeit shortly) with Gentle, as GERHARD, and it was enjoyable. I also really like Hawun. Devil's a great RPer, I support this application, +1

I have had some lengthy interactions with Chiamaka and they have never disappointed, an insightful and scrupulously made character that has a solid basis in the lore and interacts with others regularly, I have no doubt that Devildabeast would do well in a command position. +1.

Really, you just need to interact with Devil's characters in one round and you can already see they are a competent, capable roleplayer who fits the consular role perfectly. Suits their style just fine. I have no doubt they'll put the same amount of effort they do in other roles, into this position too. I would like to see them in action.

Only recognize them from their one round as consular officer, but they seemed interested and knowledgable about their lore background, and interested in my character's as well.

Insightful, pro-active Consular Officer from my personal experience with them. It was refreshing to see an Officer from the Coalition occupy the position and I was very happy with how they played the role.

I've enjoyed every interaction with this character. Devil plays the role well, and seems to have a very impressive grasp on the lore.

A Scarab CoC consular is not really something that is usually seen. While my interactions with them when they have been playing their consular has been limited so far, I have observed them quite a bit. They really do act like an outside force that is pushing their own agenda and trying to influence things in favour of the Coalition. Which is nice to see. Their consular has personality and vibes well with the rest of command. Hope I get to see how things further develop.

Okay. My Opinion is based around my Interactions with their character named "Lelise Marimo" their Consular Officer.

 

For some Background on our interaction I will explain (shortly) what happened.

 

Following Events unfolded:

A Vampire was preying on my Offworlder and used the Merchants Vessel to make their move. They discussed with the Merchant how much they would pay for turning a blind eye. My Character (Linh-Vy Tien) managed to send a SOS-PDA Message to Devildabeasts Character and they responded by notifying Security and Medical.

 

The real gem of an interaction followed afterwards. Marimo fulfilled their duty to represent the coalition by taking Tien's statement in a compassive but also very official manner. Taking a recording, adding the transcript to the necesarry forms, basically proving their blackbelt in paperwork judo. All while reassuring my character and staying in close Radio contact with command to relay the necesarry informations.

 

It was a very immersive interaction and I felt like the Character really cared about the matter. They were deadset on finding justice for a fellow Coaliation Citizen and outraged by the attack.

 

This has been a bit longer than I wanted but I write this in a state of Good-Rp-Euphoria!

 

Bottom line:

+1
