[Accepted] Silver's Head Whitelist thingy

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Silver116

Character names:Jason Sanders, Garret Clarke, Summer Thompson, Walter Hirleman, Jesse Rhineheart

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: About five months, give or take.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: Access to the best ERP spots on the station. New jobs available come with new roleplaying opportunities. I've never played a head before, so it'll be interesting and new.

Why did you come to Aurora?:I was new to the game and trying out servers. Aurora easily had the best quality of players, so I stuck around.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?:Yeeep.

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:

Roleplay is a form of escapism. You play a character and put them in various situations that you would never be able to be in. When you roleplay, you create a story with various people, and it should be about creating that story first and foremost. When you roleplay, your main concern shouldn’t be winning the game, it should be creating a fun and interesting story with others and making sure it’s fun for all. Also ERP. A boatload of it.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

A Head of Staff is there to regulate and keep the station to at least some semblance of sanity. A good Head should make it easier for players to have fun, good roleplay, and harder for players to blow up the station. A head of staff needs to be able to make sure the station is working efficiently, and if it isn’t, they should be able to fix it. A Head of Staff isn’t there to make rounds fun and interesting as much as they’re there to make sure everything runs smoothly.

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

A whitelisted player's responsibility is to provide an example of good rp. They must fulfill the responsibilities that come with playing a Head of Staff dutifully and do their best to keep rounds from being completely derailed. A whitelisted player should play as a head when it’s necessary, and should be able to help any players that need it.

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

Character name: Jesse Rhineheart

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):

The Rhineheart bloodline is a very long and very, very rich family tree, stretching back for generations and generations, with many ties to NanoTrasen. The Rhinehearts always believed they were better than everyone else, especially any other species. Many generations prior to Jesse’s birth, it was decided that for the Rhineheart clan to truly prove they were better than everyone else, they had to get genetic modifications to expedite Darwin’s process. The most obvious of which was the striking, almost neon blue eyes that almost all Rhinehearts possess.

Jesse is the youngest official Rhineheart, and is set to continue the traditions of the bloodline. By the age of eighteen he had enlisted with NanoTrasen. In only a relatively short ten years, he’d climbed the ladder all the way to becoming a Head of Security, and only five years after that, a Captain. He spent much of his time living a lecherous lifestyle, however, in a workplace incident, he was made completely sterile with no heirs. It seemed the Rhineheart bloodline was lost there, but, it seemed that one of his extra-marital activities had given him a bastard son. He, by now an Admiral, decided to return to his post as a Captain, heading to the station where his son worked, the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?:I like that he’s so dislikable. To be frank, Jesse Rhineheart is one of the biggest dicks of a character I’ve ever made up, and I’m excited to play someone so different from my usual type of characters.

What do you dislike about this character?:Well, as said before, he’s a total dick, but beyond that, I’m a bit worried that it might be a bit too far from my comfort zone, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to properly play him. Oh, also he’s racist.

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff?: I believe he is.

Why?: He’s like, seven hundred years old (actually fifty-three)) and he’s had a lot of training for a job like this.


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

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I think I’m pretty decent. I like to think I’m better than some players on the server, but my roleplaying more than pales in comparison to others. I think it’s a mixed bag. I’m good at somethings, but I’m not so good at others.

I'm surprised you didn't have a whitelist already at this rate.

We could always use another good racist character, or another complete asshole. This time, this asshole is gonna be in command of us. Don't worry about being out of your comfort zone; How did you think I felt about playing Buck? I'm sure that Silver is more than capable of leading the station.

Kindly don't fuck this up, people do the whole asshole thing badly sometimes. (Look at all of Skull's chars in command positions (nah kidding, love you Skully.))

But seriously, he'd better be at least half decent some times, and be redeemable in some qualities, cause people like this don't tend to last long under the wrong conditions.

Also, be too much of an ass, Davey will be on his ass in a matter of seconds. (Gotta love head warfare by the way, it's pretty fun, though I always end up winning ;) )

But yeah, good RPer (Jason is neh sometimes though.) And good char (he's actually a tad like mine..)

Be good, but be an ass.
