CourierBravo/BejewledPot's Command Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: CourierBravo

Character names: Zeke Quirin (Ex Security, Janitor), Hannah Mi Young (Engineering), NT Clark (all cargo), Marceline Soto-Knot (Hydroponics, Cook), Mason Fournier (Chef, Bartender), Jasmine Rey (Pharmacist)

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: About eight months I think

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: Ive gotten a bit tired of the normal gameplay loop, and I think that the extra responsibility and access would add new options to make a round more interesting for both myself and other players

Why did you come to Aurora?: It was the second server I ever tried for more than 20 minutes, and the welcoming and patient community has made me stay long term. I love the HRP environment thats been curated, and its difficult to find anything close to it elsewhere

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: I have, yes.

Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they?: I have not, no.

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 an act carried out by one or more people to create some kind of story, narrative, or adventure thats fun or satisfying to some level. I believe that having, if not fun, at least a solid enjoyment of what is occurring is a major part of roleplay. There will always be lows to match the highs, and it can be or is difficult to manage. How people roleplay may conflict with how you want things to go, but its your choice to make something with what they're giving, to work against it, or to ignore it. But that's how it is. No one is going to like how everyone roleplays, but good roleplay can come from that and should be capitalized on.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: I believe heads of staff are to be part leaders, and part enablers of more unique roleplay. They're able to set a tone and agenda for the round for their department, and nudge players into both playing in a different way and getting them to roleplay in ways they normally wouldnt. When a round has a crisis and the antagonists for the round make things destabilized, command is there to bring back structure far easier and discourage LRP. They also should be able to make rounds more unique, by enabling easier cross department cooperation and helping to make new stories.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I believe that whitelisted players generally have to follow the rules to a closer degree, and take the servers rules of (don't be a jerk) more seriously. Being able to communicate and work together with people is a given, as thats a requirement in character as well. But Generally, I think the role OOC isnt gonna be a big one. At most? We should be encouraging people to try new things, play new characters in new and interesting ways, and help nudge them into that direction. Words of affirmation and constructive criticism are two very powerful tools at a players disposal, that are amplified by being command.

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau Ceti and how it affected your character and their career?: With the formation of the SCC, we're seeing what feels like Eridani 2 forming, but with corporations incredibly increasing cross company interaction and employment. The amount of power thats now in their hands is immense, and the people who come out with more than they lost when this is all over will probably be the ones who sided with the SCC. Unless the republic government does something crazy and drastic, I imagine that theyre gonna be ever more a puppet to legitimize NanoTrasens, and now the SCC's, jurisdiction rather than a real government separate from and above it all. Some of my characters, like Hannah and Petrov, will be coming better than they went in, as they are more loyal to NanoTrasen and the SCC than Biesel. Others like Zeke and Jasmine, are gonna end up in a bad situation for, while still feeling loyalty to their company, being more loyal to their government.

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?: CE, HoP, and Captain. But mainly CE. One day ill try out CMO and RD but I dont play those departments much so I don't have enough knowledge to be confident in playing such roles.

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking: Hannah Mi Young (Chief Engineer).

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Above average. There is many ways I still can and will improve, as Aurora is my only really good experience in roleplay. But Im trying, and Ive come a good way since I started, and Im asking other players for feedback and taking their advice whenever I can.

Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?: Absolutely, and I encourage staff to remove my whitelist if I prove too irresponsible to manage it.

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?: I have read them, yes.

Bejeweled is a lovely person ICly and OOCly, and honestly they've surprised me a few times with their characters. While they're often somehwat shy, they do have very defined unique personalities and wouldn't have guessed it's the same player behind them.

I think Hannah has proven herself be really useful at deadpop and would definitely like to see her in the big seat.

Also, I miss your Sec characters. You should make a HOS if you get the trial.

I don't know Bejewled much from an OOC standpoint but my interactions with their characters gives me nothing but positive things come to mind. They seem to capture the essence of roleplay well when they are playing, their reactions and interactions with elements of a round are realistic and serve to drive a narrative of their unique characters. I'm also satisfied with how they answered the questions, they have a sound grasp of the role of heads as leaders, as well as their OOC expectations as enablers of roleplay. Their in-lore knowledge is also well collected and they seem to extrapolate that knowledge to the use of furthering the stories of their characters.


I definitely think Bejewled deserves a trial, good luck mate.

I actually only knew that Bejeweled was Zeke, and that alone I like them.

However, finding out they were other characters I liked was a pleasant surprise, and only further makes me support them as a Head of Staff. They are quite capable of RP, and And I have no doubt that they can handle issues that can arise from Head Positions well. To which I must +1, and hope they get a trial.

Seen them a couple of times. Handled a rather interesting situation relatively well, from the sounds of IC comms, possibly needs some work on maintaining comms. 

But overall I think handled very well.

So far +1 from a fellow CE. Use it wisely.

I've been in contact with their CE twice at least and every time it's an amazing experience. RP is fantastic and they know what's right and wrong with Command play. 

Also they gave Szsk snaccs. +100

Chief Engineer I feel can probably be one of the more stressful Command Jobs, next to HoS. Hannah however, is a very good character, and Engineer, and CourierBravo does it well, and handles everything nicely from what I see.

I have limited IC interactions since they have been a CE, but when we do talk, it's always great. Definitely needs to keep the whitelist.

I played a golem last night and CourierBravo was CE and it was pretty great. The bar looked freaking phenomenal after Hannah was done with it, wish I had screenshots, it would be good to have that be the default bar layout, very futuristic looking with dining subsections divided by color. The RP was good as well and made being a golem enjoyable.
