Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Pyrotechnics2

Character names:Jack O’Keefe

How long have you been playing on Aurora?:8-10 weeks

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:I would like to be in a higher position than i am in right now and i would like to be able to play a position of authority in game

Why did you come to Aurora?:My friend told me about it and the game sounded awesome

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

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:I think role play is making a game as realistic as possible. So say a game like this it is 2D but there is lots to it so you can make this game a heavy role play because it is so complex that you can do lots with a job or a item. That is what make roleplay, well roleplay.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:The purpose of a head of staff is to make sure the staff under them work smoothly, and that if something goes wrong they can work together with each other to resolve the situation in the best way possible.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Making a mark as others who want to play better or advance to heads themselves. I got to the point where I thought I was ready to be a head myself from watching, observing and learning from heads. I hope that I can become more like the people I've observed.

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

Character name:Jack O’Keefe

Character age:34

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Mars. The fourth planet out from Sol and one of the most populated worlds in human space. Olympia is the planetary capital of Mars located within the Galle Crater Terraformed Zone and a place Jack was born. 15 January 2425 he took his first breath of air. It was a memorable day to his parents Elina and Adam O’Keefe. He grew up in a complete family, he was smart and man so his parents decided to send him to Olympus technological school in 2431. At the age of 17 he finished his education and decided to find a job. Unfortunately for him at that time it was a peak of unemployment crisis on Mars and he had no choice but to move to New Concordia.

New Concordia is the station on Mars orbit with a well- developed infrastructure where majority of senior administration facilities and personnel reside. He settled down there and started to look for a job. After a while he was able to get a janitor position in one of the most prestigious restaurants. It was a hard time for him, but he was not discouraged. As a result he took over his position after proving he worth it and finally were able to start a fulfilling life. Besides his work, he became interested in Sol Alliance Stock Exchange. Mars' economy is developed and mixed, with it's largest industries being orbital construction, mining, salvaging and a small but rapidly growing hydroponics industry. A lot of people(and not only) were making huge money out of small investments to raw materials stock exchange.

Everything was finally settled in his life and he really enjoyed it, but his heart was empty. He was young and full of ambitions mixed up with thirst for adventure. Days were passing, clocks were ticking and nothing changed...until one day the "gentleman" entered the bar. That "gentleman" offered common knowledge and wise advice . His NT Employment date is 25 october 2451.

What do you like about this character?:He is not afraid of much of anything and he is always up for a challenge

What do you dislike about this character?:He sometimes is in a bad mood and will not be nice to people and sometimes he drops something

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

Why?:He is very good at learning a new job and if he does not know something he will ask not just do.

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:I think me R.P. out of 10 i think i will put me self on the scale at 7/10 because i some time type say “say words..." because i did not remember that i had typed it before and sometimes i miss spell words

My first time interacting with Jack, was as an IAA. He told me that it "sucked we didn't have any cases. I like to make people's lives hell."

I don't find that to be Head of Staff material. And, his current position as an IAA wouldn't be suitable for, what I think is an application for a Chief Engineer(?) You've given him such a vague background, I'm not sure what you're applying for.

In his backstory, he has no former schooling that I can see of, something that is required for Head of Staff positions, (Unless the technological school is considered that, in which case finishing at age 17 is high on the snowflake scale.)

Withholding a vote, because I'd like to see these points addressed before I do.

Wait. Now I realise.... It was Pyro not Callum that was the IAA that chased a wizard...


Callum's RP isn't always at the highest standard, but you can say that about a lot of people on this server. With that in mind I've never had any problems with Callum, except maybe a slight feeling that he needs to rush into danger.

Honestly all my experiences with your characters have been quite good, literally the only issue I had with you was as an IAA you were trying to hunt a wizard, but I haven't seen you do something like that and people who've powergamed a lot more than that have been accepted into higher positions so I don't see why not.

I fully endorse this application, I think with a bit of work you could easily be a great roleplayer.

I have had very little IC interaction with Jack O'Keefe since his first whitelist attempt, so my opinion of this character has not changed. He is overly aggressive with prisoners. He has beaten prisoners to the point where he has been placed in handcuffs. I have seen him fill multiple non-security positions such as EMT and hydroponicist with no IC reasoning as to how he came to hold such positions.

In Pyro's first whitelist attempt, I stated that I am unable to trust this character as a head of staff. This has not changed. I have seen no RP that makes me think this character would be an effective Head of Security.

I hope to see this character develop in a direction that makes him more a more viable candidate for any security position. Until that happens, I can only remember the RP I have seen so far. Jack O'Keefe is not capable of being a Head of Staff. Not yet.
