BYOND key: FreshRefreshments
Character names: Most notable, Erin MacGregor, Suzuul Guwan, Mjraarjiarr Roshtanov, and Ziakra Brickscale. I havent updated my list in a little while, but most of my characters are in my signature. I have a lot.
How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Im very bad with perception of time, but probably over half a year by now, or getting near to such, most likely. Again, very poor with relative time.
Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: Command Roles have a certain degree of responsibility. I enjoy being given responsibility, its why I enjoyed playing QM when I regularly did. It felt more important. I want to be given a responsibility, and use the responsibilities of a head of staff to satisfactory results.
Why did you come to Aurora?: I originally came by with Erin MacGregor, as a Psych/Bartender, in search of HRP, as I had come from RP servers on various other mediums. After getting scolded a bit for jobhopping, I stuck with bartender, and actually learned firsthand how different the RP was here, rather than on Oracle, where I came from. I was having actual interaction, and although not all of it was good, I can safely say in hindsight that I appreciate the HRP far more than MRP, and have made good memories with my time here.
Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes, I have.
Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? I have indeed received a few warnings on rules (particularly, on a deleted character, Bonnabelle Spakes), although they resulted only in warnings through ahelp. Recently, I have not recieved any administrative action aside from a few ahelps asking about my characters, just to confirm I was acting ICly or tell me to keep something in mind.
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 creating a story, and running with it. It allows you to use your creativity, to create a separate personality, and interact with a completely different world, and the people in this world, or even change how a character reacts to things over time, such as gaining a fear of Vaurca after a massive warform attack. Its about being one of many writers, in a large, ever growing story. Even if not every action has a massive impact, characters still have an impact on one another.
What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Someone who can be trusted to understand a department, its workings, and coordinate the people in such a department in response to actions that happen as the round goes on. Something to tether people.
What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Whitelisted players are there to be a trusted source of information. Many CEs you could ask anything about the Engine and they would know it by heart, for example. Someone you know you can go to, if you have a question. Mentors, there to make sure anyone working knows how to perform their jobs, as well as have jurisdiction over their own department.
Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? Currently, theres all the news with the Lii’dra; a warform attack, a New Gibson centralized invasion and Blac K’ois outbreaks, and the reaction of the Vaurca in District 9, as well as the prejudice they face, most notably from Tajaran gangs. It spreads a degree of worry and distrust. My character wants to help with that. He wants to give himself selflessly to helping the Vaurca, but is facing an increasingly large argument against them. There is also the fact that ATLAS is coming to Mendell, something many people are very against, with over 10,000 signatures for them to be labelled as a hate group. While he is not particularly friendly with ATLAS, he far from condones drastic action done without danger of ones self. Defend yourself if you must, but do not be the one to instigate the fight. Finally, there is the election for VP; an IPC, Aristalus, vs a Tajaran, Fahjil. As a Si’akh, my character is far more predisposed to favoring Fahjil and his ethics, though this conflicts with his ingrained duty of supporting NanoTrasen, which falls more under Aristalus. It will be a tough choice for him, when the choice inevitably comes.
What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Head of Security, and once I get a better idea for the character to use, Head of Personnel.
Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:
Haz'ala Karak , Head of Security.
How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 8/10. I feel that I do try and give people the best interactions that I can, though sometimes I do make mistakes, particularly in escalation. Unless someone is specifically attacking, or making serious threats, I do feel I am sometimes too slow to escalate a situation.
Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Of course.
Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes.
Extra notes: Also, any feedback, good or bad, is appreciated! I did post a Command app once, although I took it down as Erin MacGregor did not meet the requirements needed, and said I would reapply when I had a character in mind. Well, now I do!
Ive got like, 2 or 3 characters.
And a couple of hot and spicy memes for you fellas
