Current RP rank on StarWarsRP:
Have you donated to the server?:
Have you been banned on any GL server before?:
Have you received any warnings (please give reasons if applicable)?:
How much time do you have on the server?:
I have been playing on it for just over two and a half weeks now, and have 5 days of “game time”.
How well do you know the LORE? Explain:
I know the movies well and have odd tidbits of knowledge from random youtube videos whenever they pop up. I would say I have a standard amount of knowledge for a Star Wars fan
Why do you WANT to become a Gamemaster?:
Storytelling and writing are two hobbies of mine that being a Gamemaster can help satisfy. I also wish to expand on the current repertoire of events which occur on the server. Particularly in branching stories. Currently a lot of events feel linear where if the standard approach of “shoot em’ up” is a viable solution where command is minimally influencing the event other then simple status updates. I have a few ideas to make the passive RP more immersive and action RP more strategic.
Why should you be trusted to be a Game Master?:
I have been active on the server for a while now with minimal/no interaction with the staff. My career in the medical corps is also something I would prefer not to risk as I have some goals in re-structuring and expanding there as well.
Are you familiar/experiences with ULX?:
I am familiar with it, but have not yet used it. Kinda like learning the syntax of a coding language, but having not actually written anything with it yet. I am excited to try and write something with it now.
Are you experienced with being a Game Master and how they function?:
I am aware with how they function and the work which goes into it. I have not yet though been a game master though in Gmod. My experience is more on the writing side though, choose your own story and D&D kinda stuff. What I do not know I am willing to learn.
Give a brief example of an on-ship event, as well as an example of an off-ship event:
On-ship event: The ISD goes on a patrol around the asteroid field after de-scrambling a signal from an unknown source indicating that the rebels are transporting some weapons and droids to a rebel base. When arriving at the asteroid field the ISD encounters 2 rebel ships, one fighter and one cargo ship. Scramble the fighters and blow up the cargo ship’s escort, and attempt to capture the munitions to interrogate its captain on the location of the hidden rebel base.
On the cargo ship there are 2 actors. The captain, and his trusty gonk (oddly with minimal weapons). The captain will of course be taken to the brig to be interrogated. What happens to the Gonk is up to the players, but if the 31st do not scan him they will not find the engine jammers keeping the ship in the asteroid field. Also if no one scans the ship for other life after about 5-8 minutes on the ship two other actors will be released in MHB silently and flee to hide on the ship not engaging until the next stage of the event.
To not go into more detail on this. There will be an ambush launched from the asteroid field which the ISD will not be able to flee from if the gonk is not properly disposed of. The 2 on board rebels will attempt to rescue the captain, but if they are found out only one actor will be placed during the ambush phase of the event. If the gonk is destroyed/found out the ISD will be able to flee the asteroid field mitigating the number of drop pods, and the radius of the siege. If the ship continues to be unable to leave the asteroid field new actors will be brought in making it very difficult to keep the captain in custody. The captain will only reveal information when the ship escapes/wins against the ambush.
Off-ship event: Rebels on hoth I feel like will always be the premise here I feel like, but here is my shot at reversing the roles.
The ISD is asked to land a research team and set up a basecamp in hostile territory to assist in an already present small team of researchers. A team of volunteers is assembled and goes through a briefing on their goals: land, research the weird radioactive anomalies on the ice, and protect the site if any rebels were to arrive.
After landing though they realize the previous camp setup has been ransacked and has minimal cover, but the mining drill for samples is still mostly in place. Without 31st there will be little to no cover when the inevitable happens.
The rebel attack begins after a short while when a rebel ship kamikaze’s and blows up the away team’s way back to the ISD. The rebel attacks are led then by a single overzealous rebel commando actor. The rebels will not relent, but the team should be able to hold on. Back on the ISD a second larger rescue team is prepared to save the team and recover the research gathered. This will be of course a lot harder if the first team succumbs to the rebel assaults. After the research is recovered it is then brought back to the ISD. IF there is enough SF online a second rebel fighter may be released that must be taken care of first before the rescue team tries to return.
Do you know how to give a weapon/SWEP to yourself/someone? (Give an example):
Yes. !give Maple [Weapon of choice]
Do you know how to model yourself/someone? (Give an example):
Yes. !model Maple [Model’s directory]
Have you read the Gamemaster Guidelines?:
Yes, and this was quite the hunt may I add. Everytime I asked where it was I was never answered, and after doing a VERY thorough search through the forums and teamspeaks I found ONE link to it (https://docs.google.com/document/d/18qckhTYbaMqoUzH6OeXmEqe5iLlvkI0VLq_qSJ4jR_Y/edit?ts=5cedeb93). This link was in a post by Hotshot in a subforum which I believe was deleted as I did not have access to it. Please sticky a link again for future people looking to apply. This goose chase was relatively difficult, and I am impressed by everyone else who was able to find it without being handed the link by someone else.
