When I made this appeal it was pretty half-hearted, felt that it was a little hasty and warranted a little more discussion. I slept on it, and came to the conclusion that the ban is stupid and should be lightened.
Yes, I think I will poke this spider. Nothing bad will happen, because I have no reason to believe it may be agitated or defensive.
Here is another random picture of a perfectly calm and non-threatening creature. I see no reason to give it a wide berth and I will step on it if it is in my path. Nothing bad will happen to me.
I am a productive security officer. Next on my to-do list is to rush a dangerous criminal that has an innocent hostage at gunpoint. After that, I will attempt to detain an atmos tech pulling a canister of toxic gas who has warned me to stay back. I should not face any consequences for the aftermath of any of these actions.
You want roleplay? How’s this?
I am a humble atmospheric technician delivering a canister of trit to cargo. I see a blood-soaked security officer staring at me, visibly and audibly salivating as he thinks of all the horrible things he would do to me in custody. I shout a warning: stay back, I say, or I’ll open this canister! Not another step! My hand hovers over the valve. The blood-soaked security officer lets out a howl, signalling that the valid hunt has begun. He rushes me, weapon drawn. I slam my hand down on the valve as he attacks me. The scorching hot tritium billows out, sending the rabid jackboots scurrying for cover. It quickly burns a hole in the hull, venting within seconds. The threat neutralized, the redshirts descend upon the terrified engineer. Fade to black. I briefly regain consciousness in the permabrig as I am being harmbatoned to death. Fin.
Good one bloons. Any other jokes? Stop feeding me lines for a moment and use your head and realize that security does just about whatever the fuck it wants on bee, and as long as they aren’t executing people in the halls for shoving, they get away with it. I’d already been handled pretty horrifically (entire canister of pepperspray emptied into my face as I’m being dragged to the brig, chainflashing, etc). for… checks notes shoving and attempting to slip a security officer, so I really was not interested in seeing what was in store for me for shoving and attempting to slip a security officer and then escaping.
Unfortunately, I do not control the rate at which departments declare nations. Tensions were high, security was on a rampage, and just about everyone in engineering was wanted for some crime or another.
Yeah, it was not a good situation. I wouldn’t be as bothered about eating the bean if the sec officer faced some kind of consequence as well. If I am being called out for poor RP, how can you say risking death by tritium fire to nab a petty criminal is acceptable in the same breath?
How does this sound?
