rrrrrr's head whitelist application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: BotanistPower

Character names: Walter Brooks

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: About 2 months

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: To better coordinate security and make rounds more interesting.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Roleplay.

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

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: Roleplaying is like being a character in a story, except the story is interactive and the quality of said story heavily depends on how good the other people are at writing. Basically, roleplaying should be about telling an interesting story. I'm not going to fluff this up with a whole bunch of words, so I'll leave it at that.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Primarily to make things interesting (especially for traitors & other antagonists), secondarily to set an example for that department, at least in terms of behavior.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Generally, to not be absolutely eye stabbingly awful at their department. Chief Engineers shouldn't be awful at construction and atmos. Captains shouldn't have much trouble coordinating large masses of people who all hate each other. Heads of Security should be fairly robust and humor antagonists. And so on, and so on. Other responsibilities, I think, are making shit interesting for their department.

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

Character name: Walter Brooks

Character age: 47

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Walter is Earth born, having been born in New York City in 2410. Walter is fairly old - at least among the crew of the station - at 47 years old. Having a long and not so interesting career with NanoTrasen starting shortly after he graduated college, Walter has been with NT for around 21 or so years. Basically, he's way too invested to call it quits now.

Walter met his wife, Judith, in 2437. They've been married ever since, having had an unspecified number of children together, somewhere between 4 and 7. Neither of them are happy and they argue like a married couple. Still, neither of them want to divorce due to their children and how long they've been married. Basically, they're both too invested in it to quit now.

What do you like about this character?: Pretty fun character to play.

What do you dislike about this character?: I am limited to telling dad jokes as a way of breaking the ice.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: Walter's been with NanoTrasen for a long time. I think becoming a head of staff is the next logical step for the character. Or maybe his wondrous jokes have touched a NanoTrasen higher up? Who knows. The possibilities are endless.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Pretty average. I've been roleplaying for a while but not long enough to consider myself good - that, and it's mostly been in SS13. SS13 isn't really the best environment to become a better roleplayer, but hey, look at me!

Extra notes: 8-)
