[Accepted] Conspiir's Vaurca App

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Conspiir

Character Names: Witcher II, Crop Circles Drawn in Dust, Solar Winds Blowing Plasma

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): (RGB 55, 0, 0)

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: I read the lore in physics class. It seemed neat, but I knew a new lore dev was just appointed. I’m interested to see how it’ll grow. Plus, Vaurca seem to be a little sparse on the station. I’d like to flesh it out a bit more if I can. I saw a whole three Vaurca on the station today. Most I’ve ever seen.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Their culture is kind of awesome, not going to lie. Having two separate, essentially, species within one is something rather unique. The way that they communicate with each other and their environment is shaped by everything that sets them apart, and it only widens the gap further. I'm happy with what I've read, but I'm sure I'll also be interested in how anything changes.


Character Name: Ka’Akaix’Khoshekh Zo’ra (A Worker Unbound named "Kawh-SHEK" from Zo'ra, if I have that right, though I do have another idea for a Bound one as well)Khoshekh is a totally original name and not at all from Welcome to Night Vale

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

Alright. Functional. Try it.


Good. Try again.

“Very gladsk-t. Working heresk-t.”

To be working here.

“To be working heresk-t.”

Minor static feedback. But progress from some models. Please say “This is my first day.”

“Thisk-t. Isk-t. My firsk-t. Day.”

Try again. Sound it out more.

"Thiss-kt iss-kt my firss-kt day."

Please say “Sorry, I stopped too soon.”

Sssskt. Sssskt. Sktorry. I ssskt. Ssskt…”


Try now.

“Szzckorry. I sszckopped. Too szszckoon.”

The buzzing is back. Allow adjustments.

Try again.

Sckorry, I sckopped too sckoon.”

Good. This voice modulator is working well. We may attempt to create more along these lines.


That was all. Dismissed.

Ask for this, that is no. But to make the best of this, however, that is yes.

The numbers were drawn. Ways were parted. Ka’Akiax’Khoshekh Zo’ra was assigned to the NSS Aurora II to help fill out their understaffed and overworked engineering department for NanoTrasen, because who better than a few Vaurca? She cared little. While secretly delighted in the tales brought to the Virtual about this Material world, she never wanted to Descend and live that way. That was work for others. Poisonous work. The limitations were unbearable. And to say nothing of the languages of its people. She can’t even correctly pronounce her own name. But this is how it was. And it is how it will be, until she can find her way back to her world of k’ois and fresh phoron. Preferably before she rots in this hellscape.

What do you like about this character? I wanted a Vaurca that sounded like he was talking through a radio every time he attempted to voice the s sound (don’t judge me, it’s the first thing that came to mind when I read about their voice modulators). So instead of that harsh z, it’s almost a harsh clicking sound in the back of the throat. Yup. No autohiss for me. RIP my head as I try to sort out every s sound with like six extra letters. Kind of like constantly prepping for a loogie, but worse. Not to mention, it'll be my first character back in engineering in two years. So you kids and your supermatter, huh? Back in my day we had a black hole and let me tell you what...

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

While I have had good experiences with your other characters on board the station and feel you would do a good job could you please add an actual backstory even if brief to the section that asks for it. It may seem pedantic but it helps ensure that you have a good understanding of the current lore and what it means to be a Vaurca.

Your vocal gimmick differs from the norm but it remains interesting and consistent to the lore so I like that and your name is formatted correctly so don't stress about that.

What jobs is this Vaurca intended for?

More added! This one's an engineering apprentice.

One thing to note is that the wiki lists jobs that Unbound Vaurca are allowed to do, but it does not list Janitor as one. It feels like it should be a given that all Vaurca, Bound or Unbound, should be allowed to clean floors, as menial as it is.

I'll go ahead and accept this application. It is well written, thought out and you have a decent reputation with your other characters. I believe you will do a good job as a Vaurca and its always nice to see more unbound.

I also made a minor edit to the wiki to include Janitorial work as it really should've been there to begin with. An oversight on my part.
