Special Character Applications Format and Rules

Want to play a Vox? A Diona? A special snowflake former l33t SWAT Spetznas supersoldier failed experiment from Deathkilldie-6? This is where you come to pitch your ideas for everything normally not allowed as characters on the server, so we can mold it into something usable.

Special Character Applications Format and Rules

Postby Aces » Mon Oct 05, 2015 9:01 pm

This is where you can post your applications for playing as whitelisted species and special characters that normally don't belong on a space station like ours, such as for long-term events.

See here for some examples of what might require an SCA: https://wiki.vore-station.net/Whitelist

You'll have to make a separate thread for each application, as each application is subject to its own criticisms.

Be prepared to deal with criticism here. Anyone on the forum is allowed to post on your application to give feedback, even after it has been accepted (if it has), so if your idea is shitty, we're will let you know.
That being said, the global rules about forum etiquette still apply, obviously.

How to apply:

For special species apps: Make a thread with the title: BYOND Key - Species (e.g. CoolMcDude - Vox)
For special characters and languages apps: Make a thread with the title: BYOND Key - Short summary of idea (e.g. Toolboxy - Syndicate who defects to NT / Human who knows Gutterband)

For special species applications (Vox, Diona, Xenomorph Hybrids, or anything ripped off from another franchise such as Jawas from Star Wars for example):
Code: Select all
[b]BYOND Key:[/b]

[b]Species you want to apply for:[/b]

[b]Name of Characters In-game:[/b] (If applicable)

[b]How long you've been playing Vorestation:[/b]

[b]What is this character's backstory?:[/b]

[b]Some example names of the species:[/b]

[b]Summarize what you know about the species:[/b]

[b]Play out the following simulated RP scenario (also feel free to alter this, as it is just an example scenario):[/b]
Recruiter: "So, tell me about yourself... what was your name again?"
You:
Recruiter: "Riiiiiiight..." The recruiter scribbles on his notepad, taking down notes. "Tell me about how you came to live on Virgo Prime."
You:
Recruiter: The recruiter nods, hardly making eye contact as he reads off the standard list of questions. "Do you have any past experience working on NanoTrasen stations?"
You:
Recruiter: He nods again, writing down some notes, or perhaps doodling. It's impossible to tell which. "And what do you think you can bring to the company?"
You:
Recruiter: "Very well. Thank you for your time. We will contact you as soon as there is an opening suited for you." The impatient recruiter finally looks up again and waves the applicant along, ready for the next potential new employee.
You:

[b]Why do you want to play this species?:[/b]

[b]What do you expect them to bring to the station's RP by this character being allowed?:[/b]


For special character applications (Mercenaries, Defectors, Pirates, Syndicate, or fan characters from another franchise such as Sgt. Johnson from Halo for example):
Code: Select all
[b]BYOND Key:[/b]

[b]What kind of character/language do you want to apply for:[/b]

[b]Name of Characters In-game:[/b] (If applicable)

[b]Are they a fan character of another franchise?:[/b]

[b]If so, what the hell are they doing here?:[/b]

[b]How long you've been playing Vorestation:[/b]

[b]What is this character's backstory?:[/b]

[b]If they speak any special languages, why do they speak them?:[/b]

[b]What do you expect them to bring to the station's RP by this character being allowed?:[/b]

[b]Play out the following simulated RP scenario (also feel free to alter this, as it is just an example scenario):[/b]
Recruiter: "So, tell me about yourself... what was your name again?"
You:
Recruiter: "Riiiiiiight..." The recruiter scribbles on his notepad, taking down notes. "Tell me about how you came to live on Virgo Prime."

You:

[b]Why do you want to play this individual?:[/b]

Then just wait!

We ask the community to please weigh in as much as they can. In order to be approved, either one supervisor admin, the admin in charge of the species, and/or at least one other admin must approve (this differs between species, contact the admin in charge of each for more specifics).

Thread Rules

  • Supervisor Admins and above have the final say in applications. Should an application be accepted or rejected, no reason has to be given.
  • Lore Masters can also approve applications, but supervisor admins and above outrank them.
  • Applications can also be revoked without warning or reason by Supervisor Admins and above.
  • Repeated applications (e.g. within 1 week) after a rejection will be ignored and possibly penalized.
  • Any players are allowed to weigh in with their opinion of whoever is making an application. This is to let the community have a say.
  • Posts must be relevant to the discussion. Off topic content may be removed without notice.
  • Keep discussion civil. Personal insults should not come into it.
  • Applications take time to process. If you feel nothing is being done, you are allowed to bump the thread using the forum's "Bump" feature without any repercussions.
  • These rules are subject to change at any time and for any reason.

If your app requires a whitelist, once it's accepted, it can be added to the server through Github.
