Age: 15 ( birthday in literally 6 days when i will turn 16)

How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?:
I will try to keep thing fresh by choosing to use different types of styles like payloads. I could try things like ambushes where the troopers can get ambushed or cornered. I can help to make things fun and quirky as well by including event characters to make things feel new and fun. Having new people as event characters could help create a much more variable play style. I want to include linear plots and passive RP to let it be more fun for the players letting themselves express themselves through RP.
Have you participated in many of our Events?:
I have participated in lots of Gateway's events. This includes me being on for pretty much all days in the last month playing usually all three or at least two events each day. I have participated in being a n event character too which helps to give me insight into what i could possibly do with them in the future.
Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools?:
I have a grasp on some of the tools used by Event Masters but i would need help to get a better understanding of how they work and what circumstances they are used for.
Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses:
Voice Amp is used so that everyone on the server can hear you from any distance. It lets players hear the EM's directions and orders. Using it all the time is never advised but it is an essential tool used by EM's.
Advanced Duplicator 2 is used to quickly copy large or small groups of objects and paste them down it helps event masters to save time and helps them have built structures for the events.
Teleporters help Troopers get from one place to another in no time. It is commonly used so that players can get from spawn to the battlefront straight away without having to walk all the way.
Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?:
Using too many props is never a good idea and having as least as possible is usually the best thing to do because then everything can run smoother for everyone. Being that GMod servers are unreliable it is always best to keep props at a minimum.
Do you understand that you are not allowed to abuse your ULX rank outside of events? Provide 3 examples detailing different situations that would be considered abuse:
Changing your model because you feel like it, changing the map without telling anyone or making anyone aware and Killing people with ULX.
Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before:
I have played as a undercover droid in an event once and i have also played as a B1 multiple times.
On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have?:
4 or a 5
On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands?:
about a 2 or a 1. i really need some help with them
Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master:
Most of the events really have been pretty good in general. I loved how creative some of them have been and i have loved how good some of the event characters can be. Since they have started having more EC's it has been really good and in general has been really immersive. I really like the PvP events and recently there was a really cool event with Maul and Savage Opress which inspired me because they were in character most of the time and they made it a whole ship event and it was in general challenging. It taught me that not all events go well but in the end most events are fun. That really inspired me to become an EM.
Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)?:
Yes, I understand that in Events not all things can go to plan, especially when is they are not as much PassiveRP. When planning events i will factor in that if things go wrong i will be ready. I will make sure that i can change it if needed.
How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events?:
i feel as if i am competent enough to be able to plan event story lines and make sure that i tell the troopers every little bit of information that they need to know. I feel that i will be able to address breifing and debriefing with enthusiasm and respect for everyone around me. I will try my best to keep things interesting through breifing so that no one feels extremely bored and annoyed.
1. An event doesn't go to plan and General Grievous is crushed by an elevator. Players are laughing at you. What do you do?
In the event that a character essential to event is in this situation i would not take what the players are saying to heart and keep going. I would put General Grievous back on the elevator and come up with a reason of how he escaped getting killed by the elevator like /comms General Grievous used his strength to hold up the elevator helping him escape the elevator shaft.
2. A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react?
I would approach the user and ask him what i think i should change about my events in the future and ask what im doing wrong. I would take some constructive criticism if it was given and not care too much about what bad stuff he said beforehand.
3. You have to go AFK in the middle of an event you are running and there are no backups available. What should you have done to avoid this?
Plan before hand to make sure that you have nothing to do irl at that moment. Also to tell the other EM's a long time before hand so that they can fill in for you if need be.
4. Players and a few staff members are complaining about the amount of lag they're dealing with during your event. How do you resolve this?
First i would try and listen to their criticism and then i would do my best to delete unnecessary props. If things continue i will tell them that it is out of my hands and that it might have to do with Gmods unreliable servers.
To conclude your app. you are required to create and design your own event. This includes planets, maps and stage actions. Include lots of detail in your event design. You are required to involve PassiveRP elements.
Operation Hostage Lockdown
call "please make your way to briefing"
make sure LAAT's are on standby
hello there troopers, we have been tasked with an important mission to secure supply crates on the planet tatooine. They have supplies in which we need to take down the CIS. This mission is vital to the survival of the republic and for the safety of us all. Many lives may be lost down there and this mission may prove to be a difficult task. But i am sure you are all prepared. We are now orbiting the planet. Anyone want PTS?
Troopers board the LAAT's Ill tell you more about the situation once we are planetside.

"4 EC will be played (2 Weequay and 2 admirals Icefuse Networks Generic Admiral and get them to change it to their liking) Weequay holding down bases. staying deep in the caves and holding one hostage with them. they will then change their names and will hold the other hostage at the small crash site."
Hello welcome planetside troopers and welcome to Tatooine. Your task will be to search for supply crates which contain parts for a new weapon we can use against the CIS. You may find that the inhabitants can be very aggresive but do what you must, we have to find these crates. Our first task is to search the town south (i cant tell in singleplayer which way so im guessing off experience) and the caves search this area and take out any hostiles while finding the crates. I believe it will all be best if we split up and search in groups. We don't know whats out there so be on the lookout. It should also be noted that if you find anything unusual please comms it in. You know what do do troopers.
NO JETPACKS ALLOWED

Good Work out there troopers. We have successfully acquired the parts for the new weapon and we also found hostages there which we safely evacuated. It was a tricky mission and many lives were lost. In gaining these parts we can now move foward in our advancements and knowledge of technology. Now onto placements
Troopers, briefing is now dismissed
