Ban Reason: “Killed curator as non-antag chaplain over a minor misunderstanding. Massive over-escalation, then stripped bag rather than bringing curator to medbay.” auth: Archanial
Appeal Reason: I feel like the admin did not consider any of the information I gave them and the ban seems to paint me as the violent instigator in this incident and that I just looking for loot and an easy valid.
Arch and efemu seem to not even notice what happened after the incident, and make it seem like I left him to rot after taking his gear(of which one item I actually accidently took and returned)
- Chaplain - Calico
- Curator - Jestie Boxcutter
- Head of Personnel - Maximilian Simpson
- Captain - Steve O Lastermine
- Engineering Borg - THAD 2.0
Let’s start from where this began.
I was at the hopline looking for additional information when a rad storm goes off. It is only me and HOP in the line so he lets me into Command maintenance to shield me from the storm.
Hop was in the process of changing my access, and my ID with maint access was left behind when we went into maint.
In this corner of maints, there was the curator (who I mistook for clown due to his outfit), SSD engiborg(might’ve been AI shell), SSD Captain, and the Hop who were all probably within a 5x5 space of each other. As the radiation dies down, the captain leaves to get mutadoned and the HOP begins to make his way out the door…
The floor is littered with blood, so I take a spray bottle out of my satchel and spray the ground. Unbeknownst to me at the time, this bottle was not filled with space cleaner, but with tanning oil.
What’s different is that tanning oil is a minor eye irritant, so when I sprayed it, it gave an 2 second stun to the curator(the only one in the room unprotected by sunglasses)
After this, the curator flies into a rage and starts screaming obscenities at me. A reasonable response after all, though I expected perhaps a shove or a punch to the head to go along with his displeasure for my idiocy.
Instead, the Curator whips out his Claymore and begins slashing me. He gets three or four slashes on me before I take out my Hanzo Steel(Null Rod) and begin blocking his hits and slicing back in what I thought was a fight for my life. He falls down but isn’t out so I slash him several more times to see if I can incapacitate him to crit.
By this time the Hop has left and it is just me, the SSD engiborg, and the curator’s body.
As our brawl ends, I realize I am alone in maint with just the SSD engiborg with no way out. My quickest solution is to take his ID so I can get out of maints where I can then bring him to sec and he can be revived.
As I take try to rifle for his ID, I mistakenly pull his backpack off, where I then find a syndie box filled with throwing stars, syndicate bolas, and other gear.
At this moment THAD 2.0 the engiborg wakes up, whereupon I tell him I was nearly killed and that I suspect this curator was a traitor. I holster my Hanzo, drag the curator’s body, pick up his fallen claymore in one hand, and use my other hand to grab the offending backpack.
The engieborg lets me out down through Bridge doors into the hallway. I make my way to security.
As I am dragging the curators corpse I see the HOP in the hallway.
I say I was attacked.
He says he saw it.
I say the curator was likely a traitor.
Simpson believes me.
Then he says something interesting:
open this in another tab
Hop offers to eject his corpse, effectively round ending him
*Contrary to THIS
then stripped bag rather than bringing curator to medbay. -efemu
I could have let Hop take him and gotten rid of the syndie, after all, he was my superior in the service department and if he decided to space the syndicate, so be it.
So no. I didn’t just loot and forget. I brought his corpse to security, and gave the bag with the evidence.
I would like to note that I had forgotten to return his Holy claymore, but that was remedied after Sec found the box unrelated to him being antag or not, and I returned the sword.
After that, I was promptly informed I would be banned for my egregious overescalation
tl:dr if the ban reason was twice as long, half of it would still be a lie.
