[Accepted] DatBerry's Vore-Kah Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:DatBerry

Character Names:Rob Oster, Jasper Roberts, Gordon Armstrong, Solomon Howard, Mok'rrad Al'Adeli, Arraja Mi'dynh

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): you can color vaurca? if so, id go bluish black or something

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

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: my next step to roleplaying different species, vaurca are rare and unique, their hive and bound/unbound lore is pretty interesting.

i find the part about losing contact with their home world pretty interesting, and how unbound went from nobles to 'filthy space ants' status on human space can be ground for some traumatized vaurca characters

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: they're space ants in space, who are almost as close as IPCs to being cyborgs, while being organic, they have hives they're loyal to, and a refugee like status, and then you have game mechanic differences, they're suited for dangerous and hazardous work yet are hard to fix, making them disposable resources.


Character Name:Ka'Akaix'B'lad Zo'ra

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

B'lad had a hard time adapting to leaving his VR, infact, he still haven't, having a hard time distinguishing between reality and VR.

but that wasn't the only problem, b'lad was not very creative, his life in the VR had no challenges at all, the concept of working and failure are all too foreign for the antman.

zo'ra scientists have tried to help b'lad with downloading info into his brain, yet he lacked any motivation, after giving up on the cybernetic treatment, a psych advised b'lad to 'go outside' and meet other people, following with the advise, b'lad tried to get a contract with nanotrasen, failing to achieve what is needed of an engineer, his construction and EVA knowledge could be useful in smaller jobs, where he managed to get a contract in supply.

What do you like about this character? i like his backstory, a bit more interesting than a textbook 'fresh out of VR go find work'

i tried to make him a bit unique while not snowflaking in liquid nitrogen

How would you rate your role-playing ability?"5/10 its ok" - IGN

Hello. I've recently taken over Vaurca applications and lore, and I've noticed some peculiarities within this application that cause me to hesitate, because I don't want to set a bad precedent by accepting an application containing said peculiarities.

Vaurca, as you probably know if you've been paying attention to their existence on this server since their conception, have been considered a 'meme race' for essentially their entire lifetime. This is a result of a few unfortunate lapses in moderation, and a few bad eggs. Thus, I am very concerned with developing a respectable image for the Vaurca, and this means that whitelist applications for the Vaurca may very well receive weightier review than applications for other species. Vaurca players need to be trustworthy to repair the Vaurca image. This applies to ALL Vaurca whitelist holders, not just Datberry.

Now, how does this apply to your application specifically? Well, we discussed this a little over Discord, and I'm very interested in you making the changes I suggested:

-A less "memey" backstory. The core storyline is acceptable, provided that a little more justification for the continued existence of a mentally deficient Unbound Vaurca is provided.

I also have heard you refer to the Vaurca as "the perfect greytide species". This, coincidentally enough, is almost directly contrary to the sort of respectable image I want to establish for Vaurca. Comparing the Vaurca to the assistant Greytide, the baldies, is not something I want to become prevalent, and it seems your backstory, what with its whole mental deficiency shtick (And it's obvious name), seems to be trying to emulate the baldie.

If you have any questions, or want any clarification on what I mean, please feel free to ask. Otherwise, I will reserve my final decision for after the customary wait period for peer review, and then review it myself.

After some consideration and review, I have found this application to be acceptable. While it is by no means exceptional, and on it's own merit would likely not succeed, the player has shown a pliable willingness to adapt to the lore and to maintain the behaviour that I expect of all whitelist-holders of the Vaurca race. With this in mind, I formally accept the application.

Please note that despite being whitelisted and having your application accepted, your evaluation does not end here. I will be keeping a watchful eye on you and all other Vaurca whitelist holders, and I hope that you do not disappoint my expectations.
