Follows the Trail HoS Application
Usual character name:
 Bad Tim, Teef and Bones and for the purposes of this application: Follows the Trail
BYOND username:
Discord username (if you are on our discord):
Recommended by (if applicable): 
Discord - during discussion of HoS
Goon servers you play:
3, very rarely 1

Reason for application: 
I am comfortable in my ability to carry out the duties expected of a HoS, I normally play CE so I am used to command roles. I have been playing a lot more security and learning from a lot of the better security players.

Security experience (300 word minimum): Quite a few shifts, having a hard time putting a number on it, but enough to know the ropes, what situations could call for leniency and what situations call for escalation.

Answer two or more of the following:
  • What advice would you give to other sec players?
    Keep your cool, we aren't bullies, call for backup, only bully bullies. 
  • What was one of your favorite security moments? (Either playing as a sec officer or interacting with one)
    ANY of my Arcfiend rounds. I absolutely love interacting with the security on Goon3. Playing Security, I have been apart of many tense situations.
  • What game improvements or changes do you think would benefit security players?
    I currently think Security is in a good place and can't reccomend any clear answer as to what would make it better, and this application isn't for baseless conjecture and speculation.
  • Describe any differences in your playstyle when part of a full security team and when being the only security officer. 
  • ON TEAM - I typically will do my best to back up my team members, will go on patrol and call for backup as situations develop.
  •  SOLO SEC - I will stay close to security, respond to crew requests but mostly, keep medway and escape safe as possible.
Answer one or more of the following fun questions (because it's important for the HoS to be fun):
  • Write a poem to convey your thoughts on security/NanoTrasen/space/bees/anything related to SS13.
    Tiders, Crimers, and Nare-do-wells beware for IAm on the case now
Previous bans (while this will not affect your application lying about it will):

I had a ban from the automated system about a month ago that was resolved very quickly by Jan.

And of course *after* I post it I see the 300 word min for security experience.

My security experience comes from learning from a lot of really great players on Goon 3, Mav and Paladin to name a couple. They have given me tons of great advice both playing with and playing against them, as well as everyone else on Goon3

I have been learning where some of the unspoken grey areas [antag leniency, execution protocols, etc] are and how to balance between being fair, playing Security aggressive, or even the occasional traitor detective.

I have learned how to conduct a forensic investigation and try to catch culprits and most importantly, I have learned to not loose my cool, even if I am about to be torn apart by revs or eaten by a Ling.

I am fully confident in my abilities to perform these duties
But I am also open for any advice/criticism as I would like to continue learning how to be a better player in general, let alone HoS
We appreciate your time and effort in applying. However, we are not comfortable with making you a HoS at this time. You're welcome to reapply in 60 days, which would be 23rd January 2024. In the meantime, I'd encourage you to keep sec officering!
