Head of Department App.

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Jakers457

Character names: Daniel Escher, Peter Stone, Micheal Forte and James Brook

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Maybe just under two weeks?

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: So we can exercise control in Research.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Heavy rolepay indicated a decent roleplaying experience within the SS13 universe.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Pretty much, common knowledge of all the labs and how they work. Including babysitting the manchildren and helping them out where I can.

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: Some consider roleplay to be constructing a character through backstories and records. I personally consider it to be growing the character in an organic manner, letting them develop over time through the experiences you put them through, to give them a more well rounded nature. Because for me, you can tell quite clearly when someone is sticking to a set background or trope for their character. Coming from a more 'acting' perspective, it is also to embody that character and to put what he/she might feel before the mechanics of the game, even if I the player have the ability to do something.. the character might not. Though I wouldn't say I'm an overly incredible roleplayer, I like to think I can be adaptive and can produce some decent roleplay for people to partake in.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: It depends on the Head. If we talk about the Head of Security, it is to ensure the players within security to abuse the equipment they are given, while also making sure that the round runs smoothly with little in the ways of chucklefucks. While the Chief Engineer, Chief Medical Officer and Research Directors are more like teachers than anything, they are there to help guide their staff through different problems. Perhaps an Engineer doesn't know how to properly construct a camera, or a medical officer isn't sure which medicine to use and Research Directors to help their departments if they get stuck. While the Head of Personnel on the other hand, is there so players can try something out if they dislike their current job or have been mistakenly placed into the wrong job. While the Captain.... ehh, I suppose it's to keep the other players in Head positions in line.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Whitelisted players have been entrusted with features of the server that either rely on proper roleplay and ability. And with this, the Admins have put their faith into these players to represent the server respectfully and not to abuse the whitelist given to them. I personally wish to show decent rolepay as the Research Director and hopefully help anyone new to the science department get to grips with everything.

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

Character name: James Brook

Character age: 35

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): James Brook is a reasonably mellow individual, who will only snap if it is necessary. Working mainly in Archaeology and Anomaly studies, he credentials are as respected as ones you'd find with Robotics and R'n'D. But he fully believes that anomalies, as well as the concepts of Blue Space will push humanity to great heights in space travel and power utilization. Despite working for NanoTrasen, he finds plasma being used for fuel to be arcane but does not question the large paycheck he receives for aiding NT's monopolization of plasma and agrees that is useful for aiding Xenobioligists to create new abominations.

Due to his ambitious nature, and willingness to push projects to their full potential while keeping them legal, or in the very least in a legal grey area. He has been considered to be a fine applicant to babysit their research departments through out the Tau Ceti system, and with ambitious individuals comes to the potential to make more money from these expensive facilities.

What do you like about this character?: Not much, I've hardly got to know the character. Once I've gotten to grips on how he will actually act, by playing him, will I know what I dislike and like about him. He could be sarcastic, or he could be kind... who knows?

What do you dislike about this character?: I dislike his long hair and beard, but I've decided most of the hairstyles are awful and this style may or may not suit the characteristics or atleast trope of a typical space scientist.

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff? (Please note that Head characters must be over 30, unless given special clearance): I am pretty sure he'll be fit for the job.

Why?:I like think he would be, with the basic foundations that I have given myself for him. He probably won't flip is shit, or atleast a little longer than most RD's. I would like to think he'd be there to teach and aid the science team, so that they may achieve something.


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

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I'd give myself a 7.5. I still make mistakes here and there. And I tend to make a lot of typos too, which makes me look a bit silly but there we go.

Extra notes: Applications are my weakness, this is why I rely on my charm to hit it off at job interviews.

From my experience in RnD, communication between various wings can bad, especially when people start hoarding materials and refuse to help each other. I've never seen the character ingame, but from the application standpoint, he seems like something RnD would benefit from, because he cares for the scientific progress that is being made in all of the departments.

If I remember correctly, Peter Stone usualy works at security as detective. If that is so, I have nothing but praise for the player because Stone's contribution to the security team is excellent and character is done very well.
