LeMirk's Vaurca Re-app


Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:mirkoloio

Character Names:Eric McArthur, Jamison Stamos, Fabian/Janosch Goellstein, V.O.D.A.P.H.O.N.E ((Vampire Operated Defense Apparatus, Perpetrating Harm On Nefarious Entities, AI))

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Vaurca gray

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yup


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question


Why do you wish to play this specific race: I already had played it. But was banned for not abiding their Lore. While there are no decent guidelines on how to play them at this time, though. Further info in notes


Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Vaurca are bugs. From a far, far far away world. Sedantis, to be correct. They went trough many wars and their warriors have a honor code to follow. To not kill with weapons other then the ones integrated into the body. Means, mandibles, claws and whatever. They are weird. They know not much about human behavior and want to learn. They want to Adapt. Vaurca have come to learn from Humans. And that they will.



Character Name:Za'Akaix'Ghul Zo'ra

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs

Za'Akaix'Ghul, Type BA unbound Vaurca, a warrior from Titan Prime.


He has been trained very well in his past before the human contact, having lived 3500 years yet among them. Guarding, fighting and taking care of or for his hive. He was sent to NT as one of the best of his unit. ((Assuming the Vaurca have 'units' of Military/Police/Security forces here.)) He was sent to learn the human ways, his inbuilt weapons deactivated and made un-usable for the time being. He did well amongst the Humans, racism unknown to him untill he was confronted once with it. A group of young people harrased him. He however, did not care. Or did not understand what they meant. His hive is most important to him and he will do everything to preserve it from harm and to secure it's superiority. This includes following the directive of the queen. To serve NanoTrasen as if it was his own hive.


What do you like about this character? I like that he's not quite curious and knows how to handle himself. He's not afraid of learning new things and especially not of helping NT to achieve their goals. He is generally mistrusting of the Human race, but yet found a few friends aboard the Exodus/Aurora


How would you rate your role-playing ability? My RP abilities are sufficient.


Notes: I would like to point out that I was banned for something wich actually isn't something you'd ban for. Here's one of the things that lead to it:


I was attacked by a Juggernaut in a cult round. I shot the Juggernaut with a shotgun. Then emptied the NT MK58 Pistol into it. It still stood and came at me. I had a knife on me and was wearing -Tactical Armor-. It cornered me in sec where the detective's office is. Running past was impossible. The Safety shutters were down due to a breach. I killed it with the knife in close combat, but succumbed to the wounds immediately afterwards.


Please, someone tell me why this is a bad thing?


Also, IF POSSIBLE, I'd like Silver and whoever is responsible for the Vaurca lore to provide -detailed- information on how Vaurca react.

+1.


I played multiple rounds with Ghul, as my Captain, Erransis.


While I not like unbound Vaurca, because they're brats, I never, in my many rounds with Ghul, noticed anything that would require a whitelist strip. If we do not want Vaurca being Overpowered, remove the warrior class and remove the mechanical benefits that Vaurca have and make them like Skrell, a mechanically neutral RP race.


All the +1s

This wasn't the reason you were removed, I removed you for reasons that would be inappropriate to mention in a /public/ whitelist.


Vaurca have soldiers, guardians of sorts, They protect their hive, its what they live for, They can't protect their hive if they threaten it, They don't brag about their conquest's or challenge more to fight, In this case you would be working to protect the best interests of Aurora and to that extent, Your Hive


Edit: Vaurca have no concept.of honor, There is loyalty to the hive, traitors to their hive are treated like Bound and are usually cast out.

Nope. You know why the whitelist was removed, Mirk, and it wasn't for minor lore misconceptions or mistakes, nor was it an instance of overcoming an unrobust juggernaught in combat.

Bugs have no honour code; I don't know where you are getting this from, because it is nowhere on their page at all; bugs =/ lizards.

Some battles are seen depicted on cave murals, and a sense of honor is creaed around drones where, if victorious in battle, the enemy bodies must be consumed after their head is severed from the body with the victor's mandibles. All fighting was done using the claws on a drone's hand, with mandibles, or usage of the legs; although tools existed, it seemed using them in battle was a form of taboo. This may explain why most warriors of present day Vaurca use weaponry integrated into themselves; a way to fight more efficiently without breaking their code of honor.

If we're going to strip my whitelist because I went over the top with the lore, then I suggest looking at a few other Vaurca too. Because many have been behaving similar to me. And, I want to point out Zah, who changed his hive name twice. Once to Isra, and once to Void. Wich, as far as I know, is against the lore. Vaurca don't just change hive

It appears Mirk knows our Vaurca lore better than our Vaurca loredev. Can the reasons for Mirk's whitelist strip be posted or disseminated with his consent? I hardly doubt that the reason for the strip is actually 'inappropriate' for the public, unless it involved from Caste C Vaurcae :roll:
