Prospekt's Head of Staff Application #1.

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Prospekt1559

Character names:Odanu Adanutha, Silaris Uaekis, EPSiLON, and Prometheus.

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Around half a year or so, I joined on an old account which I forgot the password and username n' such. So I came back on this one.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I wish to be on the whitelist because, I feel the need to produce more roleplay out there on the station and I feel that being a head of staff would promote that. I've gotten comfortable here and built up the nerve to finally apply for this whitelist, It'd also help further my character Silaris' story in wanting to become the HoS just like Isil was in his clan, Uaekis. With that reasoning, I feel that I am finally capable of having this whitelist and guiding others around in the Heavy RP station Aurora.

Why did you come to Aurora?:I came because it was the only server to really harness the capabilities in serious roleplay. It has great staff, players, events, and an overall station. A great community, everytime I get caught up in doing something else or playing another game. I feel like it has this gravitation pull that pulls me right back to the community to play again. It's definitely a server worth staying on and roleplaying on.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes, I have indeed. I wouldn't be applying if I hadn't read everything on it.

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 essentially taking the role of a a specific thing/being be it fictional or non-fictional and carrying out that role, hence playing it which combines role and play. It ranges from serious or semi-serious, if you think of anything that you can take the role of and play as it, it's roleplay. Now, roleplay doesn't have to be in a game, it can be in real life too. A job for instance, it's a role in society that you are playing/working (Er.. Rolework.) that's an example of roleplay in real life. Another example would roughly be cosplay, taking the role of that character and playing it. You get the gist, roleplay is simple to understand but hard at the same time. It varies really, serious to not serious, it can take time to learn the full capabilities of roleplay. It's also not always about you, it's what you can produce to others for them to roleplay, such as making events, etc.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The OOC purpose from my understandings is leadership, guidance, production of roleplay for whoever you are "leading". It's more of a guiding role to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing in their specific role on the server. Another thing about the OOC purpose is that links with the previous sentence is that if someone is doing their job incorrectly, you should probably tell them and give them a warning if it's something that can fire them ICly. You are the guider when it comes to being a Head of Staff, responsibility is one of the key things in this OOC purpose.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: The responsibilities for Whitelisted players vary, the most important is to NEVER abuse your power as a Head of Staff under any circumstances OOCly and ICly; at least for me. The purpose of the being a head of staff is to ensure that other players are key in the stations work and roleplay. You are there like said in the above question as leadership and guidance. Your responsibilities OOC are to set an example of what you should do ICly in a certain job. You are there for the player OOCly, you are their guide through their job. You are also their production of roleplay. Think of yourself as spider and all of the players within whatever job criteria you are head of are your little little babies which you must teach to live and strive! You must uphold your responsibilities to be the players guide when things get tough! You are there for them not to be the big huge guy with a lot of power. That's the gist of it, one big cool guy who is there for others.

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

Character name: Silaris Uaekis

Character age:32.

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

Before the great Contact War which led Moghes into the vast wasteland it is now, Silaris was a young Unathi child born into the clan Uaekis. He had the average life of a Unathi child in the populated city in the Izweski Nation. Silaris grew through a strict honorbonded family, being strictly taught the ways of honor and war. The young Uaekis child never grew to bring what he was taught to war, at age 8 First Contact happened. The young now curious child slowly observed the new race that have now travelled to Moghes. Silaris now reaching the age of 12, four years after First Contact. He turned into the victim of war, the Contact War. He quickly took shelter in safe-zones which were deep underground to protect from the bombings that had beat into the city. The once curious Uaekis child is now the frightened Unathi child. Silaris was 50 miles away from the city. His parents had forced his evacuation to his grandparent's farm. Even then he saw the big mushroom cloud which casted the most devastating shadow over his home city. So far away all he could do is watch the bright light of the fission bomb demolishing the city, the aftermath was the most devastating. Silaris mourned his family's death, the heartbroken child scavenged the safe areas which most of the rubble had stayed such as scraps.

19 year old Silaris Uaekis. Finally broken from the shackles of wasteland Moghes, he traveled to a NT employment station in which he signed up and was accepted for the Security Cadet program. The smile which hadn't shined on his face for 7 years finally emerged. Silaris researched his clan's members, one being Isil which Silaris closely follows his footsteps. Silaris wanted to make a career just like Isil did, this was his main reason for signing up for Security. He was inspired by his clan member Isil, he wanted to grow to the ranks just as if he did. Silaris was around 30 years old when Isil was declared deceased, Silaris immediately turned to honor Isil by conspiring to be where he was in his career, the Commander of a Security team. Silaris strived in the Cadet program, now he had to work as hard as he could in Security. This was the story of a Uaekis child, the story of Silaris Uaekis is just beginning.



What do you like about this character?:Everything, his story, his compassion to be just like Isil, the things he learned from growing in the wasteland of Moghes.

What do you dislike about this character?:I really can't find something I dislike about him. I feel that this is probably the best character I've had on Aurora in a long time.

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

Why?:He's followed the footsteps of Isil from the Uaekis clan. He inspired Silaris heavily with getting out of Moghes and starting a career for himself. His death heavily impacted Silaris into honoring Isil and following up to become the next HoS from the Unathi Uaekis Clan.

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

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Seriously, I'd rate it at an 8/10. I'm not perfect, even with all the experience I've had with my 3 years roleplaying from server to server. I'm still learning new things, which is probably one of the things that motivates me to keep roleplaying because it's the only thing that really interests me.

You technically got your trial run as a HoS when I was a wizard, but I basically gave you that right.

it was mildly interesting, even though there were some issues at certain points that were rather questionable. It wasn't you specifically though, which is a relief.

At any point, I was impressed you didn't let the rest of security go under. I endorse the application, at any rate, I believe you're capable.
