Head Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: TheNitrosKiller2.

Character Names: Anastasia Kosmanov, Maximilian Valentine, Ace Crowley, Mobius Klein.



How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Since before Aurora broke off from Apollo.

Why do you want to be on the whitelist?: So I may lead my fellow crew members to greatness. And heads are fun to play.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Well, quite a while ago I was browsing servers to see which should be my main. This was it.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Why yes, I have. I also have a lot of experience.



 

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: I agree in how role play is defined in the rules (partly because I am having trouble finding words to describe it). I think role play is being "able to assume the role of a character and stay in that role." You should have your character different than yourself, and to think of this as real life, not a video game.


What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: I think that the Head of Staff should be limited to in character power, none out of character (unless of course, you are staff or really well liked by other players). In game, the head of staff is a leader among their department. They are also part of the best in their department. They are also important to the whole crew, advisers and informers to the captain. And as the captain you advise and inform other heads of staff.



 

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: I think that whitelisted players are leaders among the community with the admins. They are to be respected. I would uphold them by doing my best to be respected, and lead my community.


Character name: Maximilian Valentine

Character age: 31

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Maximilian Valentine was born to a wealthy family on Earth, the heir to Valentine Enterprises. He was formally educated, unlike many people who lived on Earth. As he grew older, he found that he was gay. He decided to come out to his parents, but to his surprise, he was met with disapproval. This caused a scandal that hurt his fathers company. For this, he was kicked out of his house, forced to live on the streets. The only thing he could do to live was to somehow get in to prison. He non-violently robbed a store so he could receive shelter in prison. He barely made it out, but when he did he decided that he needed to get a job, not go to prison again. He joined the 9th Earth Battalion of Space Marines. Here he was trained in martial arts, and weaponry. He became very robust.

After fighting in a few wars, he decided as he got older to settle down with a real job, not the army. However, when he went back to Earth he was awarded a Medal of Valor for saving his best friend in battle, Ace Crowley. He found a high paying job at NSS Aurora, where he would be handsomely paid. And that is where the story of Maximilian Valentine... For now.


What do you like about this character?: Max is different, as a member of the LGBT(Q) community.


What do you dislike about this character?: Max has impulse problems. His parents were murdered the night he was kicked out, sparking a rumor he killed them.


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): Yes, I do believe he is fit for staff. He is 31 (31 > 30)


Why?: Max has a lot of experience (as do I) in leadership roles. He led his battalion through two waves of Space Invaders. He is also very smart, as he received a formal education. He also can handle himself and survive for a while without much. Like when he was stranded on a derelict Soviet Space Station, with not much but a space suit and an oxygen tank that could fit in his pocket.



 

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I believe that my role playing is an 8 / 10. I am not always perfect, but I do very well with role playing. I have been playing this game for 3 years, and before that have watched many S.S.13 Youtubers who also helped out with that. I mainly play Baystation, and I read all the role playing guides.



Extra notes: I have been admin on one server before I was fired for unknown reasons. I was Co-owner on a server before it died expectantly.

Are you sure, you only just registered on forums and I have never seen you before

 

Maximilian Valentine was born to a wealthy family on Earth,

Um, there are no wealthy on earth, Earth is a slum planet, only descendants of those poor souls who didn't flea the dieing planet live there

 

What do you dislike about this character?: Max has impulse problems. His parents were murdered the night he was kicked out, sparking a rumor he killed them.


Why would nanotrasen hire you? let alone promote you?

Can we get some details please.

Here, I doubt this very much. You've only recently arrived here, seeing as I've never noticed your ckey before, none of the people who have actually been here since the split have ever even heard of you, nor have the regulars I've spoken to, and well...yeah.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Well, quite a while ago I was browsing servers to see which should be my main. This was it.
This brings me back to my previous point. If, as you stated before, you had been here 'since before Aurora broke off from Apollo', you wouldn't have been browsing in the first place, and would have been a part of the server since its inception. That, and I specifically remember you asking Skull about the beginnings of the server (today, October 26th, actually). A final point, you just registered on the new forums, and didn't have an account on the old ones (unless you can come up with substantial proof of using another alias).


Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Maximilian Valentine was born to a wealthy family on Earth, the heir to Valentine Enterprises.

And that is where the story of Maximilian Valentine... For now.


A few issues with this. Let's start from numero uno.

  • Earth is, simply put, a hellhole. Very small population, and suffers from Kessler's Syndrome. Hardly the place for the owners of some huge enterprise, and why would that wealthy family live on such a horrible world?
  • As for the fact that he was shunned by his father, that's understandable. That it would bring shame upon the company and the family? Not so much, seeing as although society progresses slowly (and then in bursts), I'm sure that same-sex marriage isn't quite that much of a big deal so much as perhaps, interspecies marriage?
  • He nonviolently robbed a store? How does one..do that?
  • As for his service in the completely non-canonical 9th Battalion, why would a military even consider accepting somebody with such a fresh criminal record? Today, at least in the US, that wouldn't fly at all. Criminal records disqualify individuals from military service.
  • Lastly, a high-paying job? He's a security cadet (from what I've seen). Even if he wasn't just a cadet, he'd be a security officer who, quite frankly, wouldn't have made that much in the first place.

Final thoughts: Story is in need of some major revision.

What do you like about this character?: Max is different, as a member of the LGBT(Q) community.

 

That doesn't make him different.

At all.

There are so many characters of the LGBT(Q) community on the station, it's not even funny. I think this was just an assumption on the author's part based off of limited experience ingame, which is another reason why I find it so difficult to believe you've been here since the inception of the server. If you had been, you'd have known that, well, it's not uncommon on Aurora at all.


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): Yes, I do believe he is fit for staff. He is 31 (31 > 30)

Just because he's older than thirty, doesn't mean he's fit.

 

Why?: Max has a lot of experience (as do I) in leadership roles. He led his battalion through two waves of Space Invaders. He is also very smart, as he received a formal education. He also can handle himself and survive for a while without much. Like when he was stranded on a derelict Soviet Space Station, with not much but a space suit and an oxygen tank that could fit in his pocket.

 

Space Invaders? What are those even? Might need some clarification there, because the only Space Invaders I'm familiar with are the 2D ones from my childhood. Furthermore, just because he received a formal education, he's very smart? Anyone who has any sort of familiarization with the education system would know that just making it through does not exactly make you the epitome of intelligence. And lastly, surviving on a derelict Soviet station? With an emergency oxygen tank? The one that holds 303 kilopascals of air within it, and even if you breathe 16 kilopascals of that air every so often, you're not surviving on a derelict. No way, no how.

 

Extra notes: I have been admin on one server before I was fired for unknown reasons. I was Co-owner on a server before it died expectantly.

If you could provide us with a name of the server, that would be appreciated, but until then I'm going to have to view this with some healthy skepticism.

I've seen you like. Three times in the past month tops. Really haven't seen you play at all until today.

I've had issues with you shitposting stupid things in OOC already. And then you come up with all of this stuff that quite frankly is quite unbelievable and completely ludicrous.


I'm abstaining from voting because that would imply I'm taking this application seriously.

Are you sure, you only just registered on forums and I have never seen you before

 

In response to that, I had a long absence and in that absence, Hippie Station became a thing along with Phoenix. And BestRP had also fallen. And I have not bothered to register for the forums.

 

Um, there are no wealthy on earth, Earth is a slum planet, only descendants of those poor souls who didn't flea the dieing planet live there

 

Think of India. Most of India is a slum. But, there are really wealthy people there who control India. And since Earth is really industrial now, it would make sense that a manufacturing company would have wealth and power.

 

Why would nanotrasen hire you? let alone promote you?

 

Companies do not instantly know everything about you. It could have been kept hidden.

 

Can we get some details please.

 

Sadly, no. In my absence I have forgot much about SS13. I was addicted and I needed a break. I forgot the mechanics, the player base, and the servers and what I had done on them.

 

Here, I doubt this very much. You've only recently arrived here, seeing as I've never noticed your ckey before, none of the people who have actually been here since the split have ever even heard of you, nor have the regulars I've spoken to, and well...yeah.

 

Not to be rude, but I have probably been on here longer, but since my absence you just haven't seen me.

 

This brings me back to my previous point. If, as you stated before, you had been here 'since before Aurora broke off from Apollo', you wouldn't have been browsing in the first place, and would have been a part of the server since its inception. That, and I specifically remember you asking Skull about the beginnings of the server (today, October 26th, actually). A final point, you just registered on the new forums, and didn't have an account on the old ones (unless you can come up with substantial proof of using another alias).

 

I found Apollo that way, and when I saw it not on the server list after my absence. So I needed to find a replacement and Aurora seemed nice. I learned that this server broke off of Apollo. And I did not bother to register for the Apollo forum.

 

A few issues with this. Let's start from numero uno.

Earth is, simply put, a hellhole. Very small population, and suffers from Kessler's Syndrome. Hardly the place for the owners of some huge enterprise, and why would that wealthy family live on such a horrible world?

As for the fact that he was shunned by his father, that's understandable. That it would bring shame upon the company and the family? Not so much, seeing as although society progresses slowly (and then in bursts), I'm sure that same-sex marriage isn't quite that much of a big deal so much as perhaps, interspecies marriage?

He nonviolently robbed a store? How does one..do that?

As for his service in the completely non-canonical 9th Battalion, why would a military even consider accepting somebody with such a fresh criminal record? Today, at least in the US, that wouldn't fly at all. Criminal records disqualify individuals from military service.

Lastly, a high-paying job? He's a security cadet (from what I've seen). Even if he wasn't just a cadet, he'd be a security officer who, quite frankly, wouldn't have made that much in the first place.

 

They were wealthy because Earth, in the first place was an industrial planet. That is how they made their enterprise in industrial related things. Society on Earth may have changed, but some of the owners of other businesses that worked with Valentine enterprises could have been bigots and could have reflected badly on business. From what I have seen, you don't need to shoot someone or attack someone to rob a store. You can just threaten them and ask for money. The military would want someone even with a criminal record because A) there are not a lot of people on earth and B) everyone is poor, they need someone who is healthy and fit for service. And just because I was a security cadet once, doesn't mean that is his job all the time.

 

That doesn't make him different.

At all.

There are so many characters of the LGBT(Q) community on the station, it's not even funny. I think this was just an assumption on the author's part based off of limited experience ingame, which is another reason why I find it so difficult to believe you've been here since the inception of the server. If you had been, you'd have known that, well, it's not uncommon on Aurora at all.

 

As I said, I wasn't here for a while. Then there weren't many, and I haven't seen that many now, either. And none the less, he is still a minority, making him different.

 

Just because he's older than thirty, doesn't mean he's fit.

 

This isn't the Why, this is just is he fit for it.

 

Space Invaders? What are those even? Might need some clarification there, because the only Space Invaders I'm familiar with are the 2D ones from my childhood. Furthermore, just because he received a formal education, he's very smart? Anyone who has any sort of familiarization with the education system would know that just making it through does not exactly make you the epitome of intelligence.

The one that holds 303 kilopascals of air within it, and even if you breathe 16 kilopascals of that air every so often, you're not surviving on a derelict. No way, no how.

 

Space invaders can just be generic invaders that live in space. And a formal education from elementary through college, I assume would be much sought after.

 

If you could provide us with a name of the server, that would be appreciated, but until then I'm going to have to view this with some healthy skepticism

 

It is healthy, I just forgot the name, is all.

Yes, I agree with that completely. And I apologize.

I can tell you, I was a frequent player before this place split off from Apollo.

The actions of Mobius Klein, a non antag, completely fucking the science outpost for little reason was enough. I've hardly seen any of your characters and when I do they're out making trouble. I don't think you have what it takes to lead.

Earth is a hellhole. It's under quarantine and is being terraformed to try to make it less of a hellhole. You'll have to pick another planet, for that.


Your character has snowflake all over him. Being LGBT isn't a flaw, and in 2456 it's accepted by the majority of human society except the obligatory bigots that themselves are outside the social norm. And sexuality isn't even a flaw or benefit, it's just a trait.


And there are no "Space Invaders". You should look to our wiki for the lore on any wars that have broken out. The best i can do for you there is say to change it to 'pirate raiders', if we absolutely must have another 'grizzled man's man from the Navy Walruses who can kill a man in 50 different ways with nothing but his BICEPS'


But .7 of the -1 is due to your IC behaviour. I don't think you have the maturity to properly play a Head; you're pretty much always acting like an antag, and in a way that has no RP or attempt to give other people enjoyment.

The snowflake special-ness is strong with this one. I have no clue why Nanotrasen, or this 9th battalion, for that matter, would take on someone like this, nevermind hiring them/awarding them a high-tier medal. This history needs some serious revision. And that's all I have to say about this character in particular.


Seeing as how the others are not the scope of this application, though, I won't go into details on them. I'll just leave it at, 'They're all equally disappointing, but for different reasons.'

Some of which have already been pointed out by others on this thread.
