[Accepted] Taintedglorys head of staff whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Taintedglory

Character names: Za'Akaix'Ckin K'Lax, Sam Lowe, James Albright

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Honestly, I can't recall. I played a few years ago before New-Code, quit SS13, then came back because I remember it fondly being a decent server. So, probably a few months now on New Code?

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: Mostly because there are a few positions that I feel like need to be filled more often. Partly because why not?

Why did you come to Aurora?: See above two lines.

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: Roleplay is about forgetting you life, integrating yourself into a different world, different shoes, and forgetting your troubles. Atleast thats what it is to me.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: To make it fun. Also to make sure people who join the game, no clue what they are doing, are either given help or sent out an airlock, depending on their reactions ingame.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: This is a loaded question. OOCly? To atleast show other players that you have some wisdom, and they can trust you not to join the round as HoS and carbine everyone you see.

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

Character name: Sam Lowe

Character age: 37

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

Sammi Lowe originally joined Nanotrassen's team in 2446. As a cadet, working her way through the academy and into the on Station Security forces. Nothing special or noteworthy of her early career, just normal station daily operations. In 2449, she started taking addition classes, brig management, forensics, and paperwork classes. This made many sleepless nights and half-assed work days as she struggled through to get the education need for a promotion. Eventually, she got it. No confetti and flashy shows, just one day showed up as a Warden. Did her duty for another two years, occasionally on patrol but most stuck in that office filing mountains of paperwork. In 2452, She started working off station, as an ERT member, occasionally boarding and helping stations and ships in distress. Here she learned a decent amount of skills in the world of Command, being large and in charge. Because of the low amount of ERT callings, and the high amount of ERT members, she had plenty of time for additional schooling.

Now its 2453, she begins her first day of college at Crescent Moon Academy, where she took up an intense interest in figuring out how things worked. She started studying the ins and outs of engineering and electrical work. Never new before in her life that she was so fascinated by this stuff until she took the core classes. She spent her next four years getting her degree, and reapplying to Nanotrassen as a member of the engineering team.

In 2457, she had an operation to have her gender genetically modified to male, but it was under suspicious conditions, as the team involved were not apart of Nanotrassen and had sketchy degrees, so the operation had some complications, but now Sammi is Sam, and he has rejoined Nanotrassen, working on Station once more to make some addition cash.

What do you like about this character?:

Its my oldest SS13 character, rehashed and redone for Aurora lore. So Its kind of close to my heart

What do you dislike about this character?:

Fucking snowflake by just design over playing it for years

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?:

Worked in two major station departments, knows the ins and outs of daily station operation.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Terrible out of 20

Extra notes:

Look I know its a snowflake, but its also a character I hold dear from being apart of me, an extension of my personality. Alot of my life reflects in its backstory (Except the transgender thing) as I spent my teenage years, 6 of them, as a cadet for the Air Force, but once I hit college I became a Computer Science engineer, Bachelors in electrical engineering. So, I sort of just put alot of my soul into the person I play, to feel a connection to the game

Although I don't like the effort put into your answers for the questions(I know you can do better you lazy butt), I have to give this a +1 because I've role played with Tainted's characters a-lot. He can definitely handle head of staff if put into the situation, but some of his characters might not be suitable for it. (Mainly James.....)

Echoing the others, yeah, the application itself isn't all that great. But I can testify that 1. TaintedGlory's characters are great to RP with and 2. He is OOCly a good member of the community, and I really think they can be trusted with a head of staff whitelist. This character is a bit of a snowflake, but I like the self awareness, and I don't think it'll be too intrusive to our onstation experiences. I give my +1.

While the character is a blizzard, i dont think tainted is the kind of person to make cringe interactions with, all their characters are somewhat normal, and i believe he will make a good head of staff, he already does great in semi head positions like warden and quartermaster

Excellent roleplaying encounters with this d00d. Enjoyed playing with Tainted's Vaurca and James. From what I can tell as Sam as an ERT, they seen to have the ability resolve situations and keep their composure under pressure, especially as the only operative sent on the station; a trait that I think alot of heads should have. As for James he SHOULD NOT be a head, with that being said his character is very entertaining to talk to and does some pretty entertaining gimmicks from time to time.
