[Accepted] Olympus7's Head of Staff Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Olympus 7

Character names: Dina Hegarty, Gwinevere Evans

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Two months

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: To fill positions as needed since I’ve been shoehorned into the CE position in game and to appease those urging me to write this application.

Why did you come to Aurora?: This happened by chance, after playing Yogstation and playing round after round of either revolution or cult, I felt I was wasting my time. Upon seeing heavy roleplaying, I figured it meant immensely less RDM and slower pace. I’ve enjoyed it ever since.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes, frequently


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 method of escapism. To play as a character that is not yourself and acting on events/obstacles/challenges in another way that you wouldn’t normally.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To teach and guide new players, to organise and correct regular players. As well to rein in players using resources for their own projects and not paying attention to the flow of the match.

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

Whitelisted players must demonstrate ability to follow server rules. They must be flexible and occasionally act as an RP guide during special server game modes.



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

Character name: Dina Hegarty

Character age: 46

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Born on Luthien into a well off and educated family, there were high expectations for Dina to do well in school. With little distraction and hardly a social life, she devoured most knowledge passed down to her. By the age of 26 she was well on her way as a microbiologist until four years later she and her lab crew were victims of sabotage. Being one of the least affected of the attack she had lost her right arm and heart to electrocution. She then resigned and turned to alcoholism.

While undergoing therapy for depression and regaining kinaesthetic abilities she developed a deep fascination of her prosthetic limb, its structure and applied the same curiosity to her surroundings. Using compensation left over from, she enrolled herself through university and several certifications. After graduating she was roped in by an NT research outpost where she excelled personally making minor repairs to the outpost and conducting tests on experimental exosuits.

What do you like about this character?: She’s desensitized to visibly traumatic events such as able to remain functionally calm around a scene of a murder or explosion. She’ll try to find some light to a situation, regardless of timing.

What do you dislike about this character?: She will quickly turn to alcohol if she becomes too stressed. She’s quick to ignore safety precautions if a task is quick and trivial, an example would be walking into the engine room without protection.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: Dina has experience as an interim Chief Engineer and has mentored a few apprentices. She’s calm and collected when things go to hell and is able to prioritize tasks by importance.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 6/10 Based on my inability to type quick enough to keep up with the match or self censoring resulting in long pauses.

Even though the person in question is GREATLY lacking detail, which I can understand from my own app. Although this is true. I will still give a +1 due to their ability to conduct themselves IC and their OOC way of presenting themselves respectfully, I would like to note thought, that the applicant should go back through and make sure that ALL the answers to the questions satisfy the requirements
