[Accepted] DatBerry's Head whitelist Application!

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Datberry

Character names:Gordon Armstrong, Rob Oster, Jasper Roberts, Solomon Howard.

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: almost 8 months according to the server.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: to roleplay a character involved in decision making, and that has to deal with the responsibilities and consequences of being in a command position.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Realistic characters, better antags, great staff, a more fitting rule set.

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

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 playing your role, your character's role, in a story set by by everyone's characters, the gamemode, the mechanics and everything in between, in a unique mesh to create a new chapter each round.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: to organize the incompetent fools that staff your department, to fill in understaffed parts and making sure your department isn't at fault at ruining someone else's round on OOC basis.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

to be a model for a Heavy RP player, guiding new players and showing them the proper way to deal with whatever could be thrown at them depending on their character.


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

Character name: Steven Ashford

Character age: 32

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

Steve was born to a mid class family in the outer colonies, motherless, all his attention was on his father, a Police Officer, hired to keep a small research firm secure.

being close to his father, they were their childhood hero, beating bad guys and protecting the innocent, trying to follow his father's steps, Steve enrolled in the police academy.

on his first year, his father was caught in a accident, costing him his eyesight, being an accident unrelated to his work, treatment wasn't under insurance, and with his lowly pay

he couldn't cover the costs of the surgery, retiring early, the father soon fell into depression, drinking and in the end he flung himself out of an airlock.

Steven knew this future could very well be his own, he knew no one was going to cover his back, so he made the decision of dropping out of the academy, moving to the inner colonies and earning himself a Bachelors degree in business management, fresh out of his universe, he made a contract with a small research firm, the firm didnt last long

it went bankrupt and he jumped ship, hopping from one failure of a business to another, failing to find any small business that could last longer than 5 years without being bought over, he sought a contract with a bigger corporation, and he knew his bet was the one that was buying all of his former business associates.

What do you like about this character?: a self made man, only looking out for himself, he had an acute change from a moralist person to a very materialist man

What do you dislike about this character?: after the pressure of suddenly changing his career prospects, his nerves couldn't handle the stress and he lost his hair.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: his lack of morals fit very well with nanotrasen's interests, only doing what benefits nanotrasen(aslong as it benefits him in the end)


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 6.5/10

Extra notes: I'm not too familiar with the lore, so if there's any mistakes, please point them out

I like this backstory. It oculd give for some very interesting conversations.

You are the only person who can play a bald greytide and not be bad. And Gordon is one of Echo's best friends. You got my +1.

I'd like to take a moment to remind people about this particular section of the rule's post for whitelist applications:


And you're encouraged to! State clearly why you are supporting/rejecting the applicant. Votes that comprise solely of "+1" or "-1" with no additional input will be ignored and/or deleted.

Don't downvote someone just for being new! Instead, take note of their characters and make an effort to roleplay with them so you can make an informed opinion.

Pointless feedback will be deleted. If your feedback is in no way constructive or has nothing important behind him (such as simply writing "-1 he's dumb"), then your comment will be deleted without warning.


Please try to put some effort into your replies, beyond just a '+1' or a 'He's cool, +1'

I don't know why Datberry RPs Rob Oster as a permassistant, but he's pretty nice to have around. he seems to be a jack of all trades character who's around to help with what needs to be done, when things get tough

Be's a bald, grey suited assistant, and yet somehow still an interesting character.

+1 from me

DatBerry is actually a really great RPer. He's a level-headed and reasonable guy that's fun to RP with, and he knows whats what. I'd be comfortable giving him a +1. I haven't seen him play any positions requiring him to really be commanding, but he's never been trouble before and I'd be confident seeing him give command a shot.
