I'll state from the outset that I've only been playing LLA for a few days. With that said, so far I'm enjoying it and I do intend to stick around. I do not currently have an admin sponsor or a significant number of Security rounds (on LLA) under my belt, however I frequently played Security/Cargocurity on /tg/station, circa late-2012/early-2013. BYOND KEY: Psyentific IC NAME: Karen Sharpe, alternately Lyra Steiner-Davion (Captain) PICK THREE THREE DIGIT NUMBERS THAT YOU LIKE (EXAMPLE: 079, 009, 356): 762, 556, 045 HAVE YOU EVER USED A DIFFERENT BYOND KEY ON ONE OF OUR SERVERS, AND IF SO, WHAT WAS IT AND WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT? - (THIS QUESTION ADDED BY HATTRICK): I use an alternate BYOND account on occasion; Starfighter-104. It's useful for when I don't want people to immediately recognize me. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN BANNED FROM OUR SERVER? EXPLAIN: Not to my knowledge. HOW LONG HAVE YOU PLAYED SS13?: Since mid-2012, inconsistently since mid-2014. I can confidently say that I've done everything I want to do, and have long-since reached the pinnacle of my robustness. Most of the game is trivially easy for me, and in the odd occasion that I find myself falling prey to something, it is almost always either bad luck or being caught unaware. WHAT DOES HAVING AUTHORITY MEAN TO YOU?: The responsibility to use your power to benefit those you have power over. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PLAY SECURITY?: Fairly frequently; Usually two or three out of every five rounds, with the remainder in Cargo. OH A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN HOW WOULD YOU RATE YOURSELF WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING A NORMAL SECURITY OFFICER? EXPLAIN: 8/10; I'm exceptionally robust, but I often ignore Space Law in favor of flying by the seat of my pants. It's my firmly held opinion that Space Law is a tool to do Security's job, not the job itself. Oftentimes, I consider context just as much as action, and I may or may not find myself looking the other way. I frequently go easy on first-time or benign offenders and go hard on repeat offenders or unpleasant people. In no uncertain terms, my greatest flaw as a Security officer is that I learned Security in a place where Space Law was a suggestion. I have never read spesslaw and do not intend to use it in day-to-day gameplay; It is a crutch I do not need. HOW MUCH DO YOU LIKE XENOMORPHS?: Not really. It's a cool idea that tends towards extremes more than anything else. Mechanically, Xenomorphs are incredibly OP, able to instantly knockdown anybody in melee range and throw facehuggers to disable unprotected mobs at range. However, they can quickly be shut down if the crew is robust and the initial xenos are not. Likewise, if the crew are unrobust, a passably-skilled alium will have the station at its mercy more often than not. They're a round-ender, and should be treated (and encouraged) as such. WHAT IS THE ROLE OF SECURITY ON THE STATION?: Keep the crew safe. Everything else is faggotry by degrees. ANSWER THESE HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION AS HONESTLY AS YOU CAN ASSUMING YOU WERE PLAYING AS SECURITY, HOW YOU WOULD HANDLE IT: *You are walking down a corridor of the station when you see a clown slip someone on a banana and pull their jump suit off and laugh, how would you handle this*: Slip the clown on a banana, steal his shoes and laugh. If possible, honk him with his bike horn. This isn't worth the time it would take to brig, search, and process. If I can't clownslip, flash him and tell him to fuck off; *scold would be a nice thing to have here. Either way, helpclick the slipped guy and make sure people aren't stealing the slipped guy's stuff, and flash him if he picks a fight with the clown. If the situation escalates (as it is wont to do), brig the clown for being a nuisance (Workplace hazard?), brig the dude for assault. *You are sitting in the bar having a light drink during a break when you hear someone yell about a xenomorph in the library. You run there and find an alien eating the librarian, what do you do?*: From the bar, say ";AI, check library cameras". Immediately after, say ":s Responding Library", then go to the library. Upon seeing the Xenomorph, shift-click to make sure it's not an assistant in a suit and get the fuck out of dodge. Once I've cleared the immediate vicinity, call it in to Security, Command, Departmental, and General, in that order. Make sure that everybody knows that the shit is hitting the fan. As an ordinary Officer, I am absolutely not equipped to handle this from range, and closing to melee with a Xenomorph is suicide. The best thing I can do in the immediate term is stay alive, followed immediately by getting a laser, riot helmet and riot shield from the Armory, then following the HoS/Captain/Officers in. If we don't crush the Xenos immediately, before they get a foothold, we'll lose the station. *You are standing in security and you see the head of security being especially rough with a prisoner in a cell, what would you do?*: Consider context. Do I know this guy? Is he a butt? Do I know this HoS? Is he a butt? People generally don't abuse prisoners 4noraisin, and shitter HoSes usually make themselves rapidly evident. If the prisoner is being an assblast, has been purposely antagonizing security, or is a frequent offender, just look the other way. That's one less problem for me to worry about. On the other hand, if the Head of Security is a comdom, is frequently abusing prisoners, arresting people 4nr, or generally making trouble, this is exactly the excuse I need to arrest him and push for his demotion. My reaction to this situation depends more on the people involved than anything else. ARE YOU CURRENTLY AN ADMIN, AND IF NOT-MIGHT YOU BE INTERESTED IN ADMINSHIP IN THE FUTURE?: Absolutely not. Every single person I know who's become an admin stopped enjoying the game. I want to enjoy the game, not volunteer to deal with its dregs. CAKE OR PIE? EXPLAIN IN AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE: Cake. Mematics aside, I prefer the soft bready-ness of a good cake to the sweet pastry-ness of a good pie.
