How long have you been playing on Aurora?: A little over a month now, possibly less. As far as a specific date, I'm unsure thanks to quarantine.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I would like the chance to play out being a Liaison and helping to bring more light onto the lesser known factions and groups in the lore, specifically the Eridani, though more exposure to the other groups would be a good thing in the long run I would imagine. It's nice to show off the options that players have for their backgrounds and their development, and to help show how all of these factions and corporations fit into the dance of the universe.

Why did you come to Aurora?: I originally heard mention of Space Station 13 in a Let's Play on YouTube, and was intrigued simply on the terms of it being about space. Once I got it running I was happy to find that Aurora was a "Heavy-RP" server, and 8+ years of DnD had me even more intrigued immediately. Since then I've been hooked, spending hours reading up on lore and stories, and trying to immerse myself as much as is possible. It hasn't been very long yet admittedly, but I'd be excited to be around for a long while more.

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Absolutely. The character I would be using for Liaison has an extensive background in Business, both from a management and work perspective, and of course the education to go along with it. As of yet Liaison is the only role I have an interest in, but I have been looking over the others in my off time. 

Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? None as of yet and I intend to keep it that way.


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: Roleplay is the act of taking on a persona, often of a fantastical nature, and planting yourself, potentially others as well, in a world that is made entirely of your own ideas and storytelling. Roleplay can have any setting, any timeline, and any setup, though the goal is often simply enjoyment and an escape to an ideal location for a time. These worlds can have their own problems, but in a roleplay setting we are allowed the opportunity to find creative avenues to deal with said problems, and an immense sense of satisfaction can come from a successful session. In the end, no matter the styling, the goal is always to have fun, and be satisfied. Roleplay truly is whatever you make it, and so the investment put in can bring forth incredible stories and experiences to treasure for ages after you're done.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: A Head of Staff, in my thought, is a player who is there to help guide newer players, or even just those who are new to those roles. You lead your crew, and they look to you for guidance or an example of how to play. The Heads of Staff are also players who show an example to those outside their department of a good player. They are also held to a higher standard as players than those under them, needing to step up and know full well what the rules and guidelines are to be followed, and to make sure those under them, and the round as a whole, hold to those guidelines or rules.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Whitelisted players, as I mentioned above, are also held to that same level of responsibility and guidance, though a Head of Staff may be held higher than someone whitelisted for a race. A whitelisted player as a whole is simply seen as a player you can look to for good examples of how to play the game, and how to thrive in the world that has been setup. For a Head of Staff role, these players hold an OOC responsibility to make sure that those under them are upholding the rules and guidelines of the server, even oocly, and for Race Whitelistings, these players have a responsibility to help uphold the standards of the race they are playing, and to help those that come after them fit better into that race.

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? Within the last decade Tau Ceti has seen a rise in activity, with NanoTrasen rising up to create and maintain a stranglehold on phoron mining and technological advancements in that area. They have also strengthened a hold over Biesel and the system in general, helping to make Biesel the central hub for the entire system, and moving out Sol influence considerably. The NSS Aurora research station was created, and serves as a state of the art phoron mining station, and up until recently was also a major source for research for NanoTrasen, only recently losing the mantle to the NSS Upsilon station. The station still holds a solid standing as the forefront of mining however, and houses a number of stations on facility for medical research or robotics work. 

Outside of the station's own advancements and changes, the system as a whole has gone through major events, with Mendell City specifically being home to a number of incidents throughout it's Districts, namely District 6, also known as "Little Adhomai" which houses the majority of Mendell City's Tajara population. The District was recently the center for what some might call an all out war between local gangs and police, and only recently came to an end, though tensions are still high. A mass of individuals from a number of other species have come to Tau Ceti as well, for any number of reasons, all different person to person. A number of these species are employed by NanoTrasen and put to work aboard their stations. The workforce isn't the only growth to NanoTrasen's numbers in the system, with a number of other corporations taking notice and getting involved with them, and some who would seek to disrupt the stations or planets in an attempt to halt NanoTrasen's work.

With any number of forces at work, most if not all involving themselves with NanoTrasen in one way or another, the megacorporation looks to solidify their monopoly even further, and keep their profits safe. 

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Corporate Liaison - Eridani Corporate Federation specifically

Head of Personnel


Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Anderson Hywell - Corporate Reporter - Independent(Eridani Corporate Federation) - He has been brought onto the station to make sure the ECF's monetary support of NanoTrasen is not squandered or wasted, and to be a hands-on link between them and NanoTrasen. He's a typical "Suit", interested in all things business and monetary, though he does show a bit more warmth than others within his own company. 

Cyrus Newark - Quartermaster - NanoTrasen (ECF Contractor) - Cyrus has both education and extensive history within the Business Management field, and team management as a whole. He has recently started pushing for a position past Quartermaster, feeling as though his skillset could be put to good use helping to manage more than that single department. He is still a "Suit", having been born and growing up on Akhet and Oran, then working with the Hywell-Newark Accounting Firm on Oran, but he is beginning to carry himself a bit more casually due to now living aboard the Odin and being immersed in the varied culture, rather than Oran's own strict setup.


How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I would rate it at around 6 or 7. Solid, but still always room for improvement and learning. I'd like to imagine I put forth good rp in each instance, but I still stand that I have a lot of room to grow.

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

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes, and I am still reading up to simply solidify the knowledge. I have a solid understanding of the Liaison role, but I am making sure to understand the others as well.


Extra notes: I am still fairly new to the server as a whole, and not exactly well known, but I feel I could fit well enough into the Liaison role and help to show more light on the Eridani Corporate Federation and it's various aspects. I've met a few "dreg" roleplayers and I think their quality has been fantastic, but I would like more light shown on ALL aspects of the ECF. If there are any issues or negative feedback to give for this or myself please do, and this application may be a bit premature, but I think I could do well enough in the role!

And as a side bit, thank you all for what has been an insanely amazing experience, and I hope to give back to the community as much as I can, even if it isn't in a command role or special way.

Just as a note, the application has been edited to include a second character, Cyrus Newark, for the position of Head of Personnel. 

Same as before if this is any issue or there is any feedback, negative OR positive, please let me know.

I've had the pleasure of playing with Bento in Supply for a couple of rounds now, and I have to say that my experience with them has been positive; very thoughtfully played characters and a desire to learn and improve create a wonderful atmosphere to work with and in turn, make it easier for me to work with my own characters in the scene. This is one of the aspects I value the most of a command role, involvement of the players. It's a breath of fresh air, honestly, and I'm looking forward to seeing how their play can develop further. Solid +1 for me, rock it. Addendum, bump your self-roleplay rating to a solid 8.

I like Cyrus, he seems like a nice character and a good HOP. Except for when he left me and all my friends to die on a cult round.


It was a Head of Sec's call not mine ;-; But thank you ❤️ And thank you to everyone who's given feedback so far.

Also, I noticed the app is actually past the Trial end date that go posted so for now I'll avoid playing Cyrus, but I'll still try and get some feedback and plug the app. Don't want to abuse having the whitelist.
