Scholar's New Head Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: AbandonedScholar

Character names: Alexander Lecter, Arssa Vess, Arthur Beaumont, and some smaller ones(including some not known on this server.)

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Over a year, with some downtime once in a while.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I enjoy running the different sections of the station, and playing head makes way for interesting role-play alternatives.

Why did you come to Aurora?: The thought of heavy role-play on Space Station 13 was enticing to me, and after a bit of time on the server, I found that interest to be well invested.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes I have. Over the past few years of playing SS13, I have spent time in each head role at some point or another, learning the roles and developing understanding of what it's like to be in that position.

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: Role-play is, for me, chiefly about making an enjoyable experience for yourself and the players around you. You take the position of a character outside of reality, and embody that character to the best of your ability. In this way, you make memorable, and hopefully pleasant experiences for everyone involved.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: It is the responsibility of the head to monitor the other players of their section, and to do their best to make sure that everyone can be involved in some way with the current role-play. The head is also to make sure that players understand what is expected of their job, and to help them LOOC as well as IC to the best of their ability.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Be an exemplary member of the community, showing other players how they are expected to behave in a respectful and friendly way. I'd like to think that I am generally a very friendly person, and I would strive to be helpful and friendly, whilst respecting the guidelines of the rules of the server.

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

Character name: Alexander Lecter lulfukdatguy Arssa Vess

Character age: 30

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

Arssa Vess is a timid and quiet Unathi. He is soft spoken, and often has his eyes downcast. As a young Unathi, his father expected much of him as a growing warrior. However, despite these high expectations, Arssa grew to be a more slender Unathi, quite feminine in physique. This distressed and displeased Vess' family greatly, estranging him from his family up until date of their death by slaughter, upon which he was adopted.

Despite his troubling youth, Arssa did his best to make the best of his new life aboard a new home. However, his emotional security took a beating when he began undergoing verbal and physical harassment from the many Unathi he ran into during his life. These many instances of physical and mental torture have made him very uncomfortable towards people he does not know, especially when it comes to those who share his race.

Once again, aside of these many trials, Arssa began his work to becoming a valuable scientist at the age of 15, first working as an unpaid intern in biomechanical engineering. Showing promise in this field, and a large interest in science as a whole, he spent the next several years perfecting his craft, and working to try and make himself feel appreciated. After several years of this work, and some time as an assistant in science, Arssa began an 8 year educational program to learn the ins-and-outs of working in and running a science department. Following this expedition, Arssa hopped through the system for a few years, before landing himself on the Aurora with his good friend Axton Florent.

What do you like about this character?: I generally play a character that is intended to be enjoyable for people who like entertainment created by antagonists. With Vess being a much kinder character, it allows me to role-play something unlike I general play.

What do you dislike about this character?: This character has a tendency to be far too nice, and has in the past taken the fall for things that were not his fault, simply because it was asked of him.

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff?: Yesplz i dont want to do this all over again.

Why?: He's intelligent, capable, and easy to work with. He can be professional when he needs to, and he is adept in science.

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

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Like, Dungeons and Dragons, or something? That thing nerds do?

Ugh, my eyes!

You should've maybe made an effort to crank up his age and update the bio, but considering this app is mostly a formality, I can understand. Still, based on your answers I will support your app. I'll just add:

A respected quality of any head is an ability to keep your department busy with tasks and ideas, that both make sense IC-ly and are fun OOC-ly. From what I've seen you're a very engaging antag and I'm sure you would be able to transfer this quality to a head of staff position.

Basically what the others said and what I said on your last app. This character seems more sane, but his age should probably be upped to meet the requirement, which is something that you said you'd do.

I can't really say anything here beyond what I said on your previous app so +1

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is to do about the same as the Head of Staff IC. You are to run the section, and make sure everything runs smoothly. That means, if one of your staff does not understand a certain part of their job, you take action, potentially in LOOC to help them better understand their position.


Notice that this says "OOC Purpose" you answered with an IC purpose, I kindly ask you to edit your post to address the question.


Character age: 21


Yes, please do scale this up to 30. 30yo is the absolute minimum for Head of Staff Positions.

Having seen Vess in action, I can see that Scholar is more than capable of the sort of serious RP required of a Head of Staff. This puts my fears regarding Lecter's actions at ease. Lecter is "off" because he is meant to be, not because of any fault of the player.

Scholar has proven to be responsible, competent, and quite skilled at RP. This application has my approval.

Scholar wouldn't be good for this, as such a BIG STUPID NERD would never be fit for a head whitelist. Especially one that smells so much.

Being serious however, Scholar is a good friend of mine and I have seen him in action on many different characters. Not once have I thought him incompetent from an OOC perspective, but rather the opposite, as his knowledge of in-game mechanics is fantastic. ICly, he is spectacular with roleplay, to a degree that often makes me envious; especially as an antag, and I'm sure he can bring the same skill to head positions. +1, filthy scrub.
