Christopher Odd's Commander Application 2.0

Player name you use the most: Christopher Odd

Make a list of links to all of your applications and (job)ban appeals, including whitelist and staff apps, within the last year. Also, provide "Ban reason; Verdict" beside each (job)ban link:Denied 1st Commander Application
Denied 2nd Predator Application
1st Denied Predator Application

Do you understand that any player - even donors or staff members - can have their whitelist status revoked should they break our Server Rules or Roleplay Guidelines? I understand completely in regards to punishments for not fulfilling my role as a commander or any other role within the server.

Why should you be whitelisted?
Why I should be whitelisted? That's a really difficult question to answer, in all honesty I'm a good candidate for this role because I'm well versed and I'm dedicated to this community, roleplay and enjoyment for others. My objective is simple as a Commander; make sure everyone of those marines gets back home for chicken soup. It's simple on paper, but it's extremely difficult in reality. I'm a great candidate because I know how to fulfill the role to it's best potential making sure people have fun and have things done.

Being the Commander isn't solely based on actual capability as the role, but capability as a person. You don't have to win, though it's very fulfilling when that's done. Most of the time when things are hazy, when things are chaotic a proud and respectable voice can change the tides of war sometimes a motivating factor is all anyone needs. I think I'm capable of being said factor making sure things are set straight when my inferior Executive Officer cannot upheld the standards which is a Commander. Sometimes there will be times where our marines aren't good enough to withheld the threat that is on whatever hell hole colony we're investigating.

Sometimes that will happen, but a voice, a dream and some god damn motivation will make those last moments a moment to fight for. I intend to learn from experience and I will roleplay accordingly, I hate powergaming, it ruins the actual roleplay of the server and it's not fun for either side. If a Predator could just plasma cast every single alien because they were getting attacked, I don't think anyone would have fun. Sometimes people won't agree with certain actions, but it doesn't mean it won't be a fun experience. I'm human and humans WILL make mistakes so not every round will be outstanding but I will certainly try. I intend to focus on a fun experience and a fulfilling experience.

I'm a good person, good roleplayer, and I wish to have an enjoyable experience for everyone because sometimes a Commander is all anyone needs for a good time. If it were to arise a problem is within the platoon I would use my voice rather then actual threats, the marine's thought on command is more then able to turn the tides of war. There will be those moments where I might have to field execute but if I do need to I will be VERY, hesitant on doing so. It's a VERY important decision that will bring down moral and moral is important to me. I'd like to be a level headed commander making sure things go well and I'd be a stern commander though, insuring my voice is reached by all marines.

Lot of words about how you're a great roleplayer and not a powergamer but not a lot about how you're actually gonna roleplay. Simply maximizing the amount of alive marines is kind of just attempting a "hard mode" win, or maybe even just a strategy, it's not really roleplay... unless you OOCly want people alive to keep them enjoying the round or something? Plus it seems like it'd have weird results like your ordering a full evac of everyone off the planet the moment a single guy gets injured to a hostile... okay whatever you probably didn't mean it like that.

Basically what I'm saying is there's almost zero substance to your CO app. Write a briefing or lengthy IC interaction so I can judge your CO's voice. Also a nitpick but glowy text used anywhere, ever, screams "no taste" to me, just bold or underline the questions instead.

I'll go with a interaction....Me and the Corporate Liason.

Enter the Corporate Liason entering the CiC with the Commander sitting and smoking a cigar.

Christopher Odd
Hmm, what is it? It'd better be important, I love Weyland-Yutani's work but we're usually busy I mean we've just deployed so nothing is really going on but you know what I mean!

Corporate Liason
Well Commander, this is a Weyland-Yutani facility, and I'd like to ensure that our interests are upheld. I don't doubt for a second you'd try to ensure minimal damage to the colony is done. I'd just like you to remind the marines about this.

Christopher Odd
Well sure of course no harm, no foul I say. Though you must've missed briefing I reminded the marines, though I doubt any of them were actually listening. Most of the time the Squad Leader is the only one that cares. Only good boots listen.

Corporate Liason
Well you must have faith in your marines correct? Anyway, if you could make a command announcement that would be reassuring not only for the company's interests but for you as well. If you get what I mean.

Christopher Odd
Are you attempting to bribe me? Well...I mean really no harm in taking some free cash. Alright, I'll get to it, these younger vocal cords never get annoyed by talking to my marines.

Commander Announcement
Alright marines, I know you're all bad asses, I get that. Bad asses gotta vent out their bad assery on something, but I got some suits breathing down my neck about you breaking shit. I know you probably haven't but I want to remind you bad asses about not doing that, remember you'll probably be done with this operation in about 2 hours. So just keep yourselves restraint from breaking shit for that amount of time, I don't want to be handing out punishments for some of your silly shenanigans, you're marines so act like it.

Christopher Odd
You happy now suit?

Corporate Liason
Yes, very much. I'll be off. Hope this operation goes smooth like.

I don't know... Odd, i like you and all, but as stated previously, you didn't gave us any info on what you plan to do and i didn't liked the interaction since you were mean to the CL for no reason. I'll go with -1 since i want to put imput. Next time give us the info and you'll have a +1, but for now, keep trying. And you didn't said you weren't worse than Carson

Hello, I'm confused just a little. Wait, sorry if I come off a bit rude or whatever, but like I kinda did...a little I think. I'm not sure 100% what you mean I didn't provide how I will act? That's really just really more or less what you intend to find out, if I'm accepted. I Genuinely don't want to set in stone how I intend to act like because well. Sometimes you'll get a different Christopher Odd, I don't like making a new character with a different personality because well, there won't be much to remember. Sometimes you'll get a more mellow Commander with a stern voice that's seen it all. Sometimes you'll get a new Commander that just got the job and is nervous about his job, he's seen some things but he's been baby sat by his Commander. I intend to spice up the round every now and again with something more real, or fun. Of course I won't let said spice disable or hinder the marine's progress in anyway, I don't intend on winning every single round. Though why make sure it's a harder time for the marines trying? You know? Anyway, I hope you enjoyed some feed back and that I get you to change your opinion.

Damn, my engrish strikes me again. What i was trying to say is If i could fucking talk was that i didn't liked that you were so rude with the CL for no reason and the fact that you didn't said anything on what you plan on doing. Yes, if i got the information that you gave me now, i would've gave you a +1, but now it's too late and i'm feeling lonley as the only idiot that gave you a -1

Good luck, Commander. 07

I like Christopher Odd in game, pretty sure he's been a decent enough squad leader.

Think he can manage this. +1
"Memories can be vile. Repulsive little brutes, like children I suppose. But can we live without them? Memories are what our reason is based upon. If we can't face them, we deny reason itself! Although, why not? We aren't contractually tied down to rationality. There is no sanity clause. So when you find yourself locked down in an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your past where the screaming is unbearable, remember: There's always madness. You can just step outside and close the door, and all those dreadful things that happened, you can lock them away. Madness... is an emergency exit."
