How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Around 11 months now

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I want to play Command & Counselor roles every now and then, and getting on the whitelist is how to do it.

Why did you come to Aurora?: After my first experience with HRP in SS13 got shut down, I wanted to continue to play SS13 on a more established HRP server, so I decided to try Aurora out, and finding that I enjoyed it, stayed.

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yep.

Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? No administrative actions that I can remember or find.


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 creating a unique character that fits into a setting, and then using that character to interact with both other people, themselves, and the setting at large. It should be about the interactions your character goes through, both with people and things happening outside, but also their interactions with themselves and how all these interactions shape their growth as a character.


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

I think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff has three parts. Firstly, they are there as educators, OOC’ly a head of staff player should know the ins and outs of their department, how it functions, and what its role in the wider station is, while being able to explain any part of this to another player OOC’ly. Secondly, they are the link that ties the station to the rest of the setting, being able to send and receive faxes from the Odin or other parties. And lastly, they are there to facilitate RP, how this is done can vary from character to character.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:
I think the only real OOC responsibility of command whitelisted players is when playing a command role to keep in mind the experience of other players. There are multiple reasons why characters may do things that would harm the experience of other players, most examples revolving around the command characters' likes/dislikes. While this can be believable in the setting, and shouldn’t be completely off-limits, I believe it should be kept to a minimum in order to make the experiences of a round enjoyable for everybody.


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

For Bastin Schmidt, the CMO I hope to play during trial, after the stresses of the second incursion bled of, instead of going to his seemingly all-but assured job as a chief medical officer aboard a Nanotrasen, now SCC, station, he found himself propelled away from his family and into the CRZ to tour medical facilities on newly acquired planets, speak with doctors, giving tips, tricks, and general advice on how to become more efficient, as well as teaching them how to use newly purchased corporate equipment. He found the work enjoyable but dull, on top of keeping him away from his family, still wishing he could return to Biesel proper and manage a department aboard a Nanotrasen Station. He was noted for being able to teach effectively, and had a higher rate of corporate purchases from hospitals he toured than most other doctors.  Eventually, he got his wish, and was assigned as a chief medical officer aboard the NSS Aurora.

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?

CMO & Consulars, maybe HoP if I feel like it, possibly CE after a month of playing engineer again.


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

[Bastin Schmidt] - CMO

[Farid Achaari] - HoP


How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I’d say I’m a solid 7.5/10, I still stumble and get dry in some scenes, but I’m much better than I was before.

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


Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yep, despite the fact the CMO one is really out of date.


Extra notes: N/A

i usually do not take time to write these +1's when people mention them because, well im fucking lazy, but playing with them on a mercenary round showed me this guy was overall competent and knew what he was doing. so here is your epic gamer +1

Triogenix is a pretty knowledge person from my experiences with them OOCly and on discord. 

By simple happenstance, I've not had serious interactions with their characters, outside of calling Vadmin a Republican Dog once or twice. But, I'm sure they do well on that front as well. +1, give'em a chance.

I don't have any doubt that you're capable of CMO'ing. i think that the command mindset takes a little practice to get into, and i'd like to see you be more of a presence in medical. Give orders, assign tasks, make sure the department is ready to respond, etc.

Thanks for the feedback! Yea, giving orders and having an actual presence I feel I need to work on. As I play more higher population rounds, I think I'll get much better at having a presence in the department, most of my shifts so far have been very lowpop and extended, so I think I started playing bastin a little too passively for how he should be.

A CMO that is not super cringe. Knows mechanics and even roleplays, what more would I want from a command member? They even talk on the command channel which CMOs tend to dodge like the plague, so overall a very good addition to the whitelisted peeps. Big fat +1
