Additional Spawner Role Ideas

Recommended Posts

So! With the arrival of Free Golems also meaning the arrival of TG's spawner role stuff, I put together a couple of simple enough to make ideas that could be added to the cycle to ensure we've got at least a couple available during every round.

Role: Space McDonalds

Essentially the staff of an interstellar Fast Food chain restaurant in the same sector as the Nanotrasen station. A special corporate portal would allow customers to be ferried between the station and the restaurant, where the restaurant staff can take their orders and make food from a special restaurant-themed menu, either by manually cooking it or using some sort of corporate synthetic food replicator. There'd also be a drive through, where the Mechanic and Security Pod Pilot can order food from their pod on the go!

Role: Podmen Enclave

Essentially the same role from Lavaland on TG, but obviously with a few changes. They'd be located on a small, secluded station, with an incredibly large botany bay, supplies and basic living quarters, and free reign to grow whatever plants they like with little chance of interference, save particularly adventurous folks from the NT station.

Role: Space Hotel

Again, a port from TG. A luxurious hotel and retreat station's staff, tending to guests who arrive from the Nanotrasen station via a similar method to the Space McDonalds idea, a corporate portal. It'd be up to them to keep their guests happy by whatever means necessary, with sufficient supplies to do so for an entire round. They'd also have to deal with the occasional pest problem, to keep things a bit exciting.

Role: Crashed Abductor Mothership

The small crew of a large Abductor vessel that has sustained major damage after colliding with a large asteroid. All of their abductor science and implantation equipment was utterly destroyed, and the crew must use what tools they have available to sustain their life support, repair atmos damage and await whatever rescue that might come to save them.

Role: Merchant

A travelling merchant with their own trading station and shuttle. From the station, they'd be able to freely order an impressive stock of goods to sell aboard the Nanotrasen station, including more exotic items that aren't usually available on the station itself, such as vintage spacesuits and other cool but practical knick-knacks.

Role: Nostromo

THIS would be a lot rarer as a spawner menu option, but would essentially be a derelict but intact ship floating through space, filled with the corpses of the prior crew and populated by a single Xenomorph Drone, unable to evolve into a Queen but potentially a threat to whatever intrepid explorer accidentally stumbles upon it. The ship itself would have an impressive haul of vintage and rare technology for those who manage to survive it's guardian.

Thought these up after about ten minutes! I may post additional replies with more ideas over time.

Merchant is just the trader event, isn't it?

Also, the mob spawner menu has existed ever since ancient station, not just since the free golems.

 

Hmm, how about a syndicate listening outpost for a ghost role?

For a moment there, I read this as "Swarmer roles" and was all excited to talk about Swarmer Warriors and Swarmer Queens.

Suggestion instead of the McDonalds: interstellar fast food truck. Essentially, similar to Sol traders, but they sell specialty foods.

Bring back Vox Traiders.

Add 5~ Cryosleepers to the skipjack, 20 minutes into the round ghosts are given an notice that the pods are now active and players can take control, giving them a grocery list of goodies they need to collect from bars of gold to a kitchen knife or even some used or useless trash items and the occasional kidnapping 'Guest of Honor' objective. Enforce the involaite, so as side antagonists they can't start shooting and killing people, but they are free to loot anything they feel they can run away with, and are encouraged to defend themselves or capture anyone continuing to show hostile intent towards them (such as overzealous security officers and tiders trying to get aboard their ship.)

It should be later into the round, not a 100% chance, and only for some roundtypes, like the free golems.

To expand on this: They can sell special other items too, like robust gold tobacco, some other luxury items, I dunno?

Better idea: their meals will include figures like from the arcade.

Better better idea: Not just figures but fluff items in general like plushies, toy weapons, donk items, etc

I might be the only one but I'd like to see the old derelict be available again. The idea of waking up on a trashed station centuries after some unknown events and having to piece things together is such a fantastic story/RP premise.

This might fall under the topic of a different discussion, and if so I'll make a new topic somewhere.

This is sorta off-topic: but I feel like the long-distance cloners that admins use sometimes for shenanigans could be moved to the mob spawner menu.

    • Now, this is a tale from the far reaches of Baystation, onboard the SEV Torch.    It had been a quiet shift, everyone was either talking or working, the poor janitor had been attempted murdered by the mime, but survived and the mime was swiftly arrested.  Everything seemed fine, except...  The mime had been a mere puppet for something far worse, a mindslave trying to fulfill his masters impossible wishes.  That master were currently loading a revolver in a dark spot.  Loaded and with spare ammo, he hid the gun in his pocket, the joys of holdout weapons, and continued towards the brig, intent on retriving his puppet.  The first officer got a single shot on him, but to no avail, the puppeters work vest deflecting the shot, soon the officer fell on the floor, clutching his wounds as he begged for mercy.  "Please! I surrender! I SURRENDER"  He begged, but the puppeter was already unloading his revolver and putting in new bullets, the pain of a non-removable magazine.  Another officer came rushing to his aid, firing his tazer but missing every shot as the puppeter evaded each shot, continuing to load his revolver.  Aware of the threat, the officer pulled his lasergun instead, took aim and fired....  BOOM He had hit a transfer valve, causing it to detonate, filling the hallway with smoke and debris, allowing the puppeter to fully load his gun in relative peace.  The puppeter took aim and nailed the officer right in the head, thankfully just a fleshwound, but enough to incapitate him.  Another officer showed up, an unathi, an angry female one armed with a big laser rifle.  The puppeter took aim and nailed her right in the head...  She stumbled, she screamed in pain, but was still standing, the bullet had lodged itself in her snout, the bleeding wound.... Healing, blood drying and clotting, new scales growing..  She took aim and fired, dropping the puppeter with a well aimed shot to the leg.      That day, Alfred learned that Bay Unathi were a tad different from Para.  He lamented his lack of knowledge as he bleed out on the floor... 
    • We have already told Yuliy to keep the matter to ban appeals / ACs. They have failed to do this. Thread locked. They are now banned from the forums as well. Goodbye.
    • Howdy, Is this still something that's of interest? If it is, I can put some time in to polish up the sprite optimiser script, instructions, and finish / share some of the documents I was writing to go with it and the sound stuff.
    • I have never been hostile towards you during this entire endeavor of you talking about me openly, and I don't appreciate you talking about me negatively to other people in discord direct message's resulting in people making their own judgement of my character. You have to understand that if you behave negatively it only causes more negativity. You decided to escalate things to the point of trying to kill me and hide my body. (Poorly at that, as I was found literally moments after you left me.) I usually give people the benefit of the doubt when they are antags and willing to barter for life. I will now be listing the events as I remember them so the facts are there. Regardless of how it makes me look. First off, I walked into science and you were hostile as you always are. I head patted you and you decided to hit me with your telescopic baton multiple times and threaten my demotion from science as you were the RD. I went down to the experimenter to make myself some gadgets as all of the other science department wings were in use. I ended up getting a soap device and you demanded that I come to your office to have my demotion carried out. I instead stood outside of your office and used the soap device as you came at me to take my ID away. This part I'm unclear of as you mention a syringe gun being used, however I don't recall this. You then caught up with me, zip tied me, and brought me into your office to remove my headset and ID. Upon removing my ID you demoted it to civilian using the console in your office. You then decided to drag me into science maintenance down to the medical maintenance airlock and sucked my blood to the point where I died. Removing my clothing and shoving me in a locker to rot. The mime just happened out of (luck for me I guess) to look around maintenance and happened to find my body. While watching in ghost you were trying to get the coroner not to revive me and he then revived me when you walked out of the room. Upon coming out of the cloning tube I gave you two options: I got to security with the information leading to my death, or you give me my job back and I stay quiet. You insisted I hand you my ID right then and there while in the cloning room. I had no headset at this time so if I were glared again and dragged into maintenance I would be completely defenseless against you like the first time as no one was around cloning at that time. I then came to a ultimatum with you saying if you went to your office with me following at a distance you would be able to fix my ID. You insisted on arguing with me regardless of how much power I held over you at the time due to my information. I then decided to say "Fuck it, I'm going to security." and stormed off to security because of your inability to realize the great deal I had offered you. I got to security and they decided to cuff me as well for absolutely no reason. I then tried to break from my restraints as I was in fear of you using the powers given to you from draining my previous body as security left us in processing together. As we were being processed a syndicate bomb went off south of the processing room leading to us being separated: You being dragged off to isolation cells until the blast happened, and I was dragged into brig bay. I was then released by the Head of Personnel and brought to brig lobby. I heard you attacking the head of security with vampire powers from the lobby of security and I had informed them as to you doing so. You then walked down to the lobby of security stunning both officers in the area with a screech and escaping through the doors leading into security. I then went to the head of personnel and offered to be the new Research director.    I apologize for any issues I caused you, but your ban was definitely nothing that this situation contributed to as I hadn't informed the administrative team of your hostile messages in discord after this round had happened. You took it out on me in direct messages and in the general chat of the paradise discord.
    • Mate, I'm not gonna lie here, That doesn't sound like grief, that sounds like you smacked him with a telebaton randomly, so he took it from you. If you abuse an item or randomly smack people around, it's gonna get taken. Ask any player here, if a sec officer starts to whack random people down, some assistant is gonna grab his baton and run off with it.   From what information I gathered, he headpatted you, you smacked him with a telebaton multiple times, and he took it, That's not grief. That's action and reaction.   Number two, it wasn't a stun grenade, it was a strange device that created soap, there's a difference, a stun grenade has the ability to blind you if they're used repeatedly in a short period of time, which could in some ways constitute as grief if he randomly ruined your eyes. However he slipped you with harmless soap.   Three? You are dragging a scientist as the RD into maint, after shooting him with a syringe gun, everything about that screams 'EOC'. He has every right to scream, and kick, and call sec. That's his duty. If we had a standard of nobody screaming out when an EOC grabbed them, Security would be out of a job. Lets keep going on. You, as the RD, told the CMO that they were an EOC, The CMO doesn't have to trust that at all, unless you are in an EOC marked body-bag, and the Captain/HOS can recall it, or the HOS/captain have said he is an EOC, the CMO can over-ride that and clone him at any time, that's not the CMO's fault. Now, lets go into any reasonable roleplay aspect, you offered him his job back, since CMD isn't actually forced here, he remembers that you just killed him, now, lets put you in his shoes, yeah? Fear roleplay comes into effect here, you have a brig, where you can be protected, security forces who are more than capable of taking care of a single vampire. You have to pick between going to work for a boss who legitimately just killed you, or going to security? I'm pretty sure you already know the answer for that yourself.   Now, lets tie all this into the perspective your taking here?  You understand that this is a roleplay server, we're low-med roleplay, meaning you are still roleplaying a character, what Koala Ice may have done, doesn't reflect on the player behind them, and your post clearly seems to take a OOC aspect to this, as do the DM's you've been sending to the guy. This sounds like alot of your actions were based on OOC distaste, or dislike of the guy, including how you've been likening him getting back at you ICLY for you randomly smacking his shit around with a telebaton as 'griefing'. I think you have very slurred lines between IC and OOC, and you need to understand that what happens IC isn't directly a reflection on the player OOCLY   I play multiple characters, ones an extremely egotistical self centered Vulp Anothers an insanely kind, and overly-trusting IPC I have another thats a very angry/snappy Tajaran with a really kind hidden heart.   These are characters, both ranging from the complete opposites of each other, to being similar in small ways. it doesn't reflect on me as a person OOCLY as I am playing them ICLY. That's the spirit of roleplay, to play a role, to play a character.   Finally? This doesn't seem like an apology at all, this seems really like your trying to incriminate a guy who just put a ban appeal up to lessen his chances of getting unbanned, I understand that you may be 'attempting' to make an apology, but it seems very half hearted, and at the very least insulting to another player of the community.
