Application - Owen mason (ZEROTH) [Accepted]

Post by Zeroth on Sat 3 Jul 2010 - 0:27

------------------------------
Character Name : Owen Mason
Requested Callsign : Incognito
Location : New Hampshire, USA EST Time Zone (GMT -5)
Desired activity : Scout, Mapper, Trader, and with the proper training...defender.
Freelancer background : I've been playing Freelancer off and on (mostly on) for the better part of the last three years. After hearing about the game from a friend I found the demo and promptly downloaded it while pouring through gameplay vids and screenshots.
Upon completion of the download I started her up, skipped the intro movies and started a new game.
From the moment I left Manhattan for the first time after returning from the Freeport 7 disaster, I knew that I would be spending a lot of time in this universe.
After about 30 minutes of playing and maxing out the demo, I bought the full version online for $15 then went back to exploring every nook and cranny in the NY system.
I tried various waypoint grids to be sure that i had mapped every inch. I also made it a point to explore the system above and below the plane of the ecliptic. Finding nothing of interest, I honed my PvNPC skills against Rogues and Xenos alike.
Then I made a new game and did just the opposite. Finding safety at both Buffalo and Rochester base, I learned to evade those pesky LPI and LSF flunkies at every turn.

That was just the demo.

Then I came home from work to a package by the door.

From that point on...

...well, I suppose you'd call me an addict.
Mapping everything i could find in Vanilla. Taking notes in case the nav map forgot my way. I'll be the first to admit that a LOT of my single player time was spent with Difficulty set to 0.00 in perfoptions.ini...but...my lack of battle skills is hopefully going to be taken care of via training, while I'm sure that my complete exploration of Crosfire 1.81 (including Inner Core, DK systems, Lost Paradise, Hyperspace, and literally everything in between) will come in handy.

I've met several SA members in space and from the people I've talked to, I think that I would fit in rather well with you guys.
I hope that you agree.

See you in space...

Incognito/Zeroth/NemesisZero

The SAC is impressed by the passion that you share for space flight. You do seem to have a good experience in space and we already receive a good opinion about you from one of our recruiters. We hereby accept your application.

You will commence the Recruitment process right away : for 2 weeks time, you shall not wear a clan tag but you will get in action with our members, as a SA Recruit, to know us better and to allow us to know YOU better. This period will also ensure you will know what our organization is doing and if you are willing to participate 100%.

Your account will immediately be set up with the rank of Recruit but until you graduate, after the Recruitment Trial in 2 weeks, the private section of the board will remain invisble to you. Once you are a full member of the Silver Arrows, you'll be able to enjoy all our privileges and use our DB and cooperation boards, where allied clans UR and CFPD share tips and tactics with us...

Welcome abord Recruit Mason !

Vice-Admiral Sam Thomas, Chief Officer of the Silver Arrows

Thank you all very much for giving me this opportunity. I look forward to learning what I can, and hopefully I'll be able to return the favor with tips of my own whenever possible.

I look forward to flying with you all in the near future.

my original name in January was ZerothDimension (i'm still in the server list three hundred and somethingth)...and when i lost my mpid and went to disco for a bit (haven't done the dual installs but i might try that soon)...i ended up spending the most time in my luxury yacht character: Incognito...since he was a retired miner turned explorer...i had all the cash i needed from mining occasionally...so i just ran around meeting people.

the friend i left CF to play discovery with (he couldn't get his CF install to let him into MP despite me walking him through several reinstalls...after a few days i brought him to discovery...he was a complete freelancer noob...)
well...he stopped playing discovery for some other game...and i really missed CF...

so...i became incognito...

but i made Zeroth as an homage to my previous incarnation...and i figure that will work well here. Smile

so...

without further babble to incite confusion...

SA_ThePup_ZEROTH
SA_Scout_ZEROTH
SA_Incognito_ZEROTH (or something shorter if i have to)

if those names are approved, i'll create them when told, and transfer equips.

as far as flying together today...that was a blast. Very Happy

i'm not sure to what percentage of your capacity you pushed yourself in those battles...but i have already learned a lot about what works (kinda) and what doesn't...

well...at least for dealing with you flying that ship in that atmosphere...

gonna take a lot more fights with a lot more pros before i show real promise. Very Happy

i'm gonna start picking friendly fights with strangers. Very Happy

PvP update:

I've been sparring with Your_uncle and (IOC)Bugma in Arena lately.

Got my butt handed to my 5 times in a row by uncle.

Then i managed to take us both out at the same time.

Then i won 3 in a row. Smile

I hope this means i'm getting better, and not just luckier.

the difference between better and luckier is decided over many days... ^^ but i bet you get better, every single fight is a place to get better !

The best test will be a training session with [CFPD]Michael. If you spot him you can ask him for training and don't forget to tell him you're SA Recruit !

It was and is an honor to fight and fly with you, Arrow.

I look forward to many many many more rounds. Smile

As far as SA tagged names here is what i have so far:

SA_Scout_ZEROTH
Currently a Shroud. General purpose explorer. Available for light to moderate battle support. Will be the ship used for most mapping, will not always be guaranteed to be in the immediate vicinity, but is able to return to area of interest via fastest possible route, ignoring any enemies along the way.

SA_Prophet_ZEROTH
Currently Werewolf from Planet Pittsburgh, after server restart, will become an APC for making quick cash to finish off any fine tuning on new chars. Will be stationed only in Manhattan and will act as a personal storage unit, able to travel...but if carrying expensive items, may defer any necessary actions to another ZEROTH vessel, even if said vessel is further away from objective. Basically a safe ship.

SA_Fighter_ZEROTH
To be created. Will be used for dueling, pvp conflicts, assigned patrols. Will always be a capable VHF loaded for bear. Will always be docked within quick access of X-3043 (within reason) for immediate deployment as needed.

SA_Incognito_ZEROTH
To be created.


Any questions or comments before i create the last two...feel free to message me.

i'm currently taking scout to escort IOC Bugma to Sovetskaya.

good Z ! glad you made already such progress with your shroud and other chars in the process already Smile

A single word : don't lose your money in making an storage APC.... Keep the APC running out there and create a seperate SA_Storage_ZEROTH char instead (rhino). No need to put a dime on the Storage ship if it never leaves Manhattan's sky Smile

So havign one char suggestion done (storage), i propose to you to WAIT before takign the last slot : may be you'll want to try a capship, a train for bigger freight profit or an EM char perhaps ! Who knows may be you will discover the taste for hosting server events Smile We are always looking for available and dedicated Event Managers, may be it'll be your call !

No rush anyway !

As of right now, my Scout is a Fyrefly parked at Murmansk.

(IOC)Bugma and i wanted to head back to Altair since he hadn't explored all of the newer systems there...so i figured that i could combine mapping, and being a tour guide.

The reason for the APC rather than a rhino is that it's storage/grinding for credits.

I can make more money and simultaneously help more noobs chatting and grinding a route in NY with my APC than i could with another ship.

When i have the spare cash, i plan on upgrading that account to a Soulforge Train.

Why waste an entire account on storage when it can be used for making money, helping noobs AND storage all at once?
(can't make that kind of cash in a rhino Razz )

At any rate, i'm open to suggestions for new chars, and as of right now i've only created 2.

Zeroth and Incognito have been deleted, while NemesisZero still remains until i am able to trade items off again.
