  Event Manager Application - Scarlet-Oduko

General

BYOND Name:
Scarlet-Oduko



Discord Name: scarlet9355


What role you are applying for: Event Manager


Why do you wish to be in the position you choose?: I want to give back to this lovely community anyway I can, and to help facilitate and create stories that folks will hopefully enjoy. As well as help others create the stories and encounters that would help bring even further satisfaction. Generally just want to help elevate things where I can in an appropriate manner.


How long have you played on the server for?: Nearing two years now give or take, been playing off and on at times.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins? If so, why? As far as I remember I do not believe I've had any negative encounters with the staff here.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins on another server? If so, why? I haven't been recently warned or banned on any other servers, but have a few years ago before I shaped up and got into RPing and generally began to enjoy the slower aspects of ss13.


Have you ever been staff on another server? If yes, how long? I've not.

What do you want to gain from being staff? Memories really, want to be a bigger part of the community and just help create and envision stories with the wonderful folks here.

How do you see yourself in the future of the server? Hopefully still a part of this community and continuing to make it a better case in anyway I can.

What do you want to offer to the community? My storytelling abilities and a chance to be able to give players opportunity to express themselves in situations that perhaps they've not thought of or normally isn't available. 

What times are you most active? Please include your time zone as we'd like to cover schedule gaps if possible. EST from 8-12am and 8-12pm depending on the day.

Event Manager

If you have been a game host in the past, how good have you been at improvising? This doesn’t need to be ss13 and could involve examples such as being a Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master. On none ss13 RP's I've frequented I've done my fair share of being the game master for I believe I have an okay understanding of improvising and am willing to always try and better myself if something hasn't gone well. Learning and getting better is always applicable.

This is the most stressful position in the staff team; how well do you handle negative community feedback? Not everyone will enjoy the same type story as another, and negative feedback is going to always be there no matter how well something goes. It's always important to separate the emotional parts of such and focus on objective criticism and improve from what you can. 

I believe I can handle it well enough for it not to impact my duties if I were to be accepted.

  Yuliy Ban Appeal
Posted by: Yuliy - 06-13-2023, 04:47 PM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Denied - Replies (1)

BYOND Name: Yuliy


Reason Banned: Insult to another person via DM


Date of ban: Aprox. 1 year ago


Admin who banned: Razgriz


Length Banned: Indefinite


Appeal Reason: To begin with, I'm sorry I made a lie to everyone involved.

At June 2022, I made a decision of a suicide by being overdozed with my medication that is perscribed, which main toxic medicine type being Pristiq ER and Seroquel, about 1~200 pills total.
I was suicidal because of my family matter, severe depression, and my self-esteem totally annihilated during that time of month. Most biggest case was my abusive father continuously harassing me and beating me down (yes, I still get beaten down by my father even as an adult, and I have no power to fight against it).
I was tired. I thought I am hopeless at that situation.
I did asked few times to the admins about self-requested ban due to the depression and anxiety, and potential toxicity that may flew to unwanted peoples, but none of the admins were willing to ban me temporarely.

Yes, you admin team do not accept the requests of the self-ban.
As a result, I made a terrible excuse, and sacrificing my relationship to ban me from the community to protect them against me.
Yes, the harassment I made to Silenrea, who was one that was targetted, was intentional bluff and a lie I made.
I eventually managed to contact with Silenrea once more again on recent days, explaining this whole situation and a sincere apology since she has been a target of mine to terminate myself away from the community. She said she was simply shaken, not having a grief on to me, which was a relief.
However, I'm not sure how the chompers community will now look at me, especially since then... I have gone into more worser situation.
Multiple more suicide happened, yes. Even after the June 2022 one (September, 2023 March) so I am actually, afraid, in fear.
Chompers was a place my imagination thrive, and make it real. All that activities with the peoples, I don't forget it.
But now, with a year has passed... It has solidified, rusted, and decaying.
All my social skills, now turned cold.
Connections with peoples, now thinned down to none.

Now, the reason why I want to appeal this right now is... I realized, no one gives a damn about me, at all, even if I die.
I can just vanish into thin air, and no one will ever notice.
I am totally alone now.
And I now feel... Scared. So much.
Now to achieve such place that I wanted when I die, this lonesome is... Frightening.
I can either just... Die, and vanish, or... Maybe, even with a permanent scar, I may... Have someone on my side.
With more high dosage of medications and drug (yes, this perscription didn't decrease, but increased due to suicide attempt), and hopefully now normal brain compared with the last... I desire the connections with peoples.
I want the connections back. Hopefully, it's not lost forever now, even with how harsh my disconnect attempt was been.
I'm sorry that I lied to perma-ban me for my suicide... Now, after a year passed, I want to repair it back.

If, just if, the evidence is required, I can send a fax or a mail, or any possible method I could send about my medical records.
For 3 years of hospital visiting, I do have the evidence and record that is written when and how I have comitted suicide, and which medication is getting perscribed.
[email protected] would be my email address, in case the admin team requires the said written evidence.

Bug Developer Application: Selis
Posted by: Selis - 06-05-2023, 06:11 PM - Forum: Staff Applications - Approved - No Replies

General

BYOND Name: sirlionfur



Discord Name: Selis#7216


What role you are applying for: Developer


Why do you wish to be in the position you choose?:
I would like to assist CHOMPStation even closer when it comes to further development and offer myself as a general go-to person when someone needs help with UI development.
Additionally, I would also like to gather more player feedback more efficiently.

How long have you played on the server for?:
I joined the Discord server about a year ago to create/port characters and a few months after started to play a little with a friend. Then my studies began and I became a bit inactive again, though now I have found a bunch of more time and recently started to play more actively on the server.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins? If so, why?
I never have been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded as far as I know.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins on another server? If so, why?
I also have never been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded on other servers either.


Have you ever been staff on another server? If yes, how long?
I did host a custom server for a group of friends in the past, but that was about it. I did apply as a maintainer on another server in the past, which got pretty positive feedback.


What do you want to gain from being staff?
Communication is a very important thing when it comes to the development of new features and being part of the development staff would give me the option to ask around and poll about things in a more centralized way, especially when it comes to core or admin-based features that are not relevant to players at all.


How do you see yourself in the future of the server?
As I am currently developing Space-Station 14 but with all the features we require to switch, and once finished, I could of course see myself maintaining and developing that further and further depending on CHOMPStations needs.

What do you want to offer to the community?
Primarily I do want to offer my skills, especially on the TGUI side, to improve the overall user experience for everyone and contribute to the codebase with more advanced projects.
Additionally, I want to also offer help to those who are not that experienced with JavaScript/TypeScript yet to create custom UIs for their things.

What times are you most active? Please include your time zone as we'd like to cover schedule gaps if possible.
Most active will most likely be on the weekends as I have most time on those days of course.
But all in all the times that I would be most active/available would be about 6 pm to midnight.
Timezone: (Wintertime) UTC+1 / (Summertime) UTC+2 - Aka German Time

Developer

What expertise can you offer to the staff team (e.g. mapping, coding, etc.)?
Most of my expertise is in coding, especially when it comes to external stuff like tgui (JavaScript/TypeScript) or other custom things that are planned in future projects (see Map History API in the suggestions section). Otherwise, I also have a bunch of experience in server administration in general, though I suppose that is less required for this role.

Can you show any examples of your work (github PR’s count)?
In the past, I have done over 100 PRs on Virgo on various things. Some are bug fixes, but other things are also more notable projects.
Here is my GitHub Account: https://github.com/ItsSelis

Here is a list of some bigger projects:
ONGOING:
- SS14 (with Vore features)
- Browserized Statpanel
- Replacing VChat with TGChat
- Tickets System

MERGED:
- <Generally the maintenance and updating of the entire tgui backend, like bugfixes, quality improvements, and new components, etc.)>
- Nice ticket panels for admins/mentors
- <Various ports like admin tokens, weakref refactors, updating core functions like the MC/Subsystems)>
- HTML/VRDB Belly Export
- Fixing 2 Blocker Bugs, that could have crashed the server if players abused it too much
- Improved VorePanel UI (Belly List on the left instead of on the top for example)
- EventKit (Currently only the MobSpawner)
- MultiMap Testing
- TGUI Fallback Logic

Other non-SS13 contributions can also be found on GitHub like Microservices Development etc.
Contribution count in the last 2 years according to GitHub: 575.

  BottleOfFur Ban Appeal
Posted by: Fuzzy Wuzzy - 06-03-2023, 05:58 AM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Denied - Replies (1)

BYOND Name: BottleOfFur


Reason Banned: You were underage, and then when banned, committed literal crimes against other people.The discord admins will not unban you, and have recommended that we ban you as well.


Date of ban: 2023-06-03


Admin who banned: Cyrelius


Length Banned: Permanent


Appeal Reason: I have genuinely zero recollection of committing crimes against anybody. I was underage at the time of my last ban, then proved my age through ID vetting roughly three years later. That was yesterday. What did I do now to warrant a ban? I'm about as confused as I possibly can be.

Discord Name: Aroliacue#1911


What role you are applying for: Developer


Why do you wish to be in the position you choose?: I would like to keep working on Chompstation and the future Chompstation 14 with more staff and developer communication.


How long have you played on the server for?: Around six months.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins? If so, why?: I have not received any warnings or reprimands to my knowledge, and I have never been banned from this server.


Have you ever been banned, warned, or otherwise reprimanded by admins on another server? If so, why?: I have been tempbanned from Virgo for one day following an IC incident escalating to an OOC incident. Otherwise, I have not received any other bans or warnings on any other server (to my knowledge).


Have you ever been staff on another server? If yes, how long?: I am currently a developer for Halostation 13 and was given the role early this year.


What do you want to gain from being staff?

By being part of the staff team, I'd like to help work on the development of new Chompstation content and have greater communication with other staff members. I would also like to help work on Chompstation 14 in the future, if that ever becomes a thing.

How do you see yourself in the future of the server?

I would like to maintain a relatively consistent level of contribution to the codebase and mapping expansion, and see myself adding to the content available onstation greatly, as well as assisting with fixing issues and bugs wherever they might pop up.

What do you want to offer to the community?

I want to offer a greater and inclusive experience to the players that encompasses all in-game departments wherever possible, as well as expand upon overmap content and contribute to game balancing.

What times are you most active? Please include your time zone as we'd like to cover schedule gaps if possible.

GMT+10, live in Australia but my Discord DMs are always open and available. I work on projects in my free time but can expedite things if needed.

Developer

What expertise can you offer to the staff team (e.g. mapping, coding, etc.)?

I am an experienced SS13 mapper with projects across numerous codebases, most notably Polaris and Halostation. I have also made some maps for Aurora. I am familiar with how BYOND code (and in extension SS13 code) functions and can make smaller contributions and changes on my own, but I am not a coder.

Can you show any examples of your work (github PR’s count)?

As of writing I am currently doing a rework of the exploration carrier, but you can find my github account at https://github.com/Aroliacue with ~100 PRs in the last six months.

Carbon Shadekin Whitelist

BYOND Username (Ckey): Xioen


Discord Username/ID: Xioen#0339

How long have you been a member of CHOMPStation13: Roughly three years and eight months! (First joined in September of 2019)

Shadekin Character

What is this character's backstory? Alternatively, list out the idea you had for your character:
I normally enjoy making backstories, but for the sake of Shadekins being relatively difficult to make backstories for in regard to NT and other groups? I’ll stick with a general outline! The character in question is intended to be a timid, green-eyed shadekin with a bit of a curiosity streak, leading them to generally only appear before one or two people at a time to interact with, and study them. Albeit, likely with only one-sided communication, as the character is not intended to speak G. Common right away, but instead learn it over time.

Some of their quirks being a light bit of kleptomania (until interest is lost on the taken items), aversion to crowds and light, a tendency to pop in and likely startle individuals (mostly due to popping in just out of sight nearby), and a constant occurrence of not realizing just how different realspace is compared to The Dark.

The character’s name is intended to be “Velo”, with their mother having named them after a certain fibrous plant that they knew of from Moghes. The reason behind this name would be tied to their own appearance, with their fur being a stark white.

Why do you want to play this species?: The reason I want to play this species a bit simplistic, and slightly dumb. I just really enjoy the thought of RPing as a fluffy shortstack first and foremost. On top of the opportunity for the unique roleplay potential as a Shadekin that doesn’t know much about real-space, and is attempting to understand both its general laws, and inhabitants.

What will this character bring to the station's roleplaying environment?: My hope is to bring an odd observer type of character initially, and have them, bit by bit, begin interacting with other characters in ways that are their own way of studying the inhabitants of realspace.

How will the species influence the way you roleplay this character?:  The species in question would influence the way I play this character in a variety of ways. In regard to Shadekin lore itself, they would constantly attempt to be elusive to groups, and spend a large portion of time in the dark until they find an opportunity for interaction with an isolated person, or very small group, as well as roleplay a general aversion and dislike of light (Due to preferring to have an exit at a second’s notice). Additionally, this character is supposed to be rather new to the concept of realspace, and was curious about experiencing it, and so their existence as a character is meant to constantly be changing in regards to how much they interact, and what they take interest in regarding activities.

Of course, on top of this. I know it is expected of me to roleplay in a way that accurately represent and showcase a Shadekin by adhering to their respective guidlines and lore.

Shadekin Lore

Shadekins are very prone to change by their ability to adapt, but what is the most noticeable change that can happen on one? On the lore page, there were three incredibly noticeable changes that can happen on a Shadekin. An increase in size and strength from frequent fighting, the development of webbed features or the ability to breathe underwater in response to living near water, and finally, the third distinct adaptation is related to eye-color, which is generally used to identify general behaviors based around primary, and secondary colors (red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange).

Shadekins have a very unique ability to phase, but what are the limiting factors that prevent them from using it? The limiting factors that can prevent a Shadekin from phasing, unless highly specialized in the ability, are light and being observed.

In general, shadekins take pride and respect in their names, but what, who, and how do they get a name? Shadekins are normally given their first name by their mother at the Hub within The Dark, that of which normally pertains to a language that the Mother knew well. Additional names are earned through proficiencies, and given by the Shadekin’s peers, with these additional names having association with the specific proficiency.

Shadekin Mechanics

What abilities does a shadekin have in their kit? Dark Respite (self-healing ability while in The Dark, also automatically activates for critical condition with a Cooldown), Dark Tunnelling (allows the Shadekin to build a portal to the Shadekin hideout), Create Shade (creates a circle of darkness around the Shadekin), Regenerate Other (use to heal a target), Phase Shift (the iconic phasing ability of Shadekin), and Shadekin Empathy (long-distance communication with other Shadekin via their unique language).

Mechanically, what do different eye colors do on a shadekin?  Different eye colors, mechanically, alter their maximum health, their energy generation (or degeneration) in the light, and their energy generation in darkness.

What effects does light do on a shadekin, and how bothersome is general station lights to one? This one was not specified in the lore page from the Forums- However, light limits a Shadekin’s energy regeneration mechanically and for some Eye colors, even causes energy loss. Additionally, it can prevent them from entering The Dark entirely, unless the Shadekin is especially skilled (whilst not being directly observed). As far as how bothersome general station lights are to Shadekin (this is a bit assumption based), it would vary depending on the type of Shadekin, but would likely be a bother to those that prefer spending most of their time in The Dark (for the purpose of being able to phase when so desired), whilst causing little to no effect on those that prefer staying in realspace, but is never actually harmful to any Shadekin.

  Sk1Tz Ban Appeal
Posted by: Sk1Tz - 05-18-2023, 08:24 AM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Denied - Replies (1)

BYOND Name: Sk1Tz


Reason Banned: Harrassing staff, anger issues, general toxicity

Date of ban: 2022-08-07 02:52:33


Admin who banned: Cyrelius


Length Banned: Manual Ban


Appeal Reason: I understand the feelings felt for my overall attitude within the community. I am prone to anger and have a history of letting my emotions run rampant than what was needed during stressful situations caused ingame and outside of it. My aggressiveness at times when it came to expressing my disdain with the staff's decision-making wasn't the appropriate response to their actions during the events that caused things to snowball, and it should have been handled a lot better. It's something that is worked on, and needs more work on. If I were allowed to return, I'll be making a more conscious effort to leave from the problem if things start to elicit a more emotional response.

This goes with saying my behavior during these heated situations involved a lot of toxicity as well. I had moments where I salted in d-chat, shittalked, was excessively vulgar, argumentative where it wasn't warranted, and overall ran headfirst into problems rather than dealing with the hand that was dealt, especially when it was related to staff. For that,  I do apologize for not handling those issues much more maturely, and with a cooler, level head.

I know I am asking a lot considering how I originally left Chomp, but after a good 9 months now since, I do ask to be granted one last chance to partake in the community. I won't participate in events, which is where a lot of the problems in the past stemmed from, and I'll only be around to vibe with some folk, no mechanic-heavy roles in mind.

How long have you been a member of CHOMPStation13: 2 months

Shadekin Character

What is this character's backstory? Alternatively, list out the idea you had for your character: Iris is a Purple Eyes, named after the corresponding flower by her mother. Her eye color, although, is more tinted towards the red side of the color wheel, she tends to enjoy the more lively and fighty challenges of the creatures and cultists of redspace over realspace, and thus, more corrupted by redspace. In terms of realspace, however, she particularly enjoys picking people's minds apart, literally or figuratively, but has also found a fascination with being quite controlling, potentially binding them to her will. She also enjoys playing games with others, seeing how they react. Even still, she has a soft spot to those she finds and those that comply, and is not exactly evil, just doesn't tend to ask much. Kind of depends on her whims and moods. (And my own) 

Why do you want to play this species?: The mysteriousness. The ability to appear out of nowhere, to live in an environment where expectations of reality is vital, seems just quite fun to roleplay. In addition, the idea of kidnapping people into the dark sounds quite delightful, showing off the more dark-side of the lore, and its land of expectations controlled world, as well as the innate nature of being unknown to normal things. In addition, I have been quite impressed by the other shadekin that are around, and am quite interested in interacting with the other shadekin as one of them.

What will this character bring to the station's roleplaying environment?: My intent is actually to go and interact with people who don't really seem to be doing anything, or tease others doing things, and to try and bring the scarier style of Shadekin lore, and showcase it just as well in the interactions between us. I was particularly inspired by one rat's friend fear of a shadekin that we walked into as outsiders, of the potential of a terror in one. In addition, she is definitely an absorption character, alright.

How will the species influence the way you roleplay this character?: A fundamental aspect of Shadekin is an inherent desire to learn, of skills and useful information, their eyes a sign of which plane of reality they care the most about learning about, or gaining power, for the adventurous ones who leave the safety of the Dark. While she particularly enjoys minds, she will also be quite curious about realspace and the technology, customs, and other such things as well, as well as other opportunities to learn of valuable information valuable to shadekin society and perhaps gain a second name out of it. Alongside that, she lacks quite a lot of knowledge of more... normal customs.

Shadekin Lore

Shadekins are very prone to change by their ability to adapt, but what is the most noticeable change that can happen on one? Their Eye Color. It denotes the planes a shadekin spends their time.

Shadekins have a very unique ability to phase, but what are the limiting factors that prevent them from using it? Observation, as well as light.

In general, shadekins take pride and respect in their names, but what, who, and how do they get a name? One's first name comes from their mother, or named by those at the hub. Additional names can come from others from impressive accomplishments or incredibly talented.

Shadekin Mechanics

What abilities does a shadekin have in their kit? Phasing, healing others, creating a portal to the hub, creating a circle of darkness around them, the ability to communicate with other shadekin through any distance empathy, as well as healing major injuries and bloodloss in Dark at the cost of nutrition with an ability.

Mechanically, what do different eye colors do on a shadekin? Nothing at the moment.

What effects does light do on a shadekin, and how bothersome is general station lights to one? Can reduce or halt the ability to regain energy. It prevents phasing, but is otherwise not harmful to them.

How long have you been a member of CHOMPStation13:
Since 4/26/2018
Shadekin Character

What is this character's backstory? Alternatively, list out the idea you had for your character:
Kiti
They specifically are just a drifter. Going in and out through realspace and not to just-- well, explore and learn things. They like to help others they find, and tend toward affection at people. Kinda leading towards its' name being Kiti.
Snatch
Dumbass from a prior event I really liked playing, basically a dumb brat that usually ends up underneath, inside, or full of someone easily bullying him. He used to be a decently powerful red-eyed shadekin who used to steal stuff all the time. Now he just can't get this STUPID COLLAR off, and spends his days trying to get someone to remove it.

Why do you want to play this species?:
Shadekin are fun, plus that new ability seems like a fun addition to the mob-vers, carbon makes it more interesting.
What will this character bring to the station's roleplaying environment?:
Kiti, probably some more help if I see any miners around, while Snatch may mess with people-- and promptly get their ass kicked (Hopefully in a fun way.)
How will the species influence the way you roleplay this character?:
Not employed, I do the outside experience. We vibe in the caves and such.
Shadekin Lore

Shadekins are very prone to change by their ability to adapt, but what is the most noticeable change that can happen on one?
Size, although they are able to adapt their bodies to things they do often.
Shadekins have a very unique ability to phase, but what are the limiting factors that prevent them from using it?
Being seen, specifically. They're like the epitome of 'out of sight out of mind', but literal.
In general, shadekins take pride and respect in their names, but what, who, and how do they get a name?
By things they do. Snatch steals, so he's Snatch. Kiti is... affectionate and helpful, so kind of like a kitty. I guess. Usually it's by their peers if they do something pretty well.
Shadekin Mechanics

What abilities does a shadekin have in their kit?
Teleporting in an emergency, healing in the dark (active I think), phasing, and making their base. Oh, and the shadow ability- and healing others.
Mechanically, what do different eye colors do on a shadekin?
Nothing, at the moment.
What effects does light do on a shadekin, and how bothersome is general station lights to one?
It's not bothersome to them much at all.

Discord Username/ID: Nyx of the Lost#0008

How long have you been a member of CHOMPStation13: Roughly around a year or two. More around 600 days or so.

Shadekin Character

What is this character's backstory? Alternatively, list out the idea you had for your character: Tricky is a character idea that heavily focuses on the Red-eyed aspect/adaptation. Outwardly directing his focus into that of being verbally sly and silver-tongued, desiring to appeal and be friendly to as many beings as he can, forging connections. Tricky considers these interactions to be his form of "hunting". Very much acting akin to a angler-fish type of personality, as his pure desire is to either benefit himself with those connections, or to mark easier prey with each passing "friendly" conversation. Their joy comes from being a nigh-pathological liar in the way that they take delight in their two-faced hunting efforts.
Tricky is a intentionally nefarious though non-openly confrontative type, seeking to actively engage and prey upon people's more bored tendencies as to mark them as "friends/food". Very vore-oriented alongside player interactivity focused. They will likely be played or atleast desirably seen as a talkative and conversative Shade-kin when out and about, directly being helpful when he can when amongst groups, however leaning towards the "Cruel Pred" aspect when it comes to nomming those whom he's tricked. A playful two-faced trickster type. I do plan on having this character progressively develop as time goes on, since they are very dependent on being interactable and not one-note.

Why do you want to play this species?:
[i]I would desire to play a Shadekin to bring further versatile interaction, building depth of sorts via the unique context of the lore. Focusing on the traits that Shadekin have to bring interest within conversation, and or more vorish aspects. Enrichment with dynamic roleplay possibilities amongst the station.


What will this character bring to the station's roleplaying environment?:[/i]

A very outwardly extrovertive type to those whom have grown bored, or are not doing much. Being focused on being friendly and inclusive to pretty much anyone as to engage with his character. A focus on the aspect of dialogue and interest via conversation, with the later appealing to more of the appeal of more malicious/mischevious pred-types.
Tricky will mostly 85% of the time be played like a social and welcoming influence to other players, as their yearning desire and empowerment comes from their own two-faced "hunting" pattern which will be likely only exclusively be seen during scenes or one on one interactions. A very strange anomaly whom has a odd fascination for the company of those amongst real-space despite his oddities.

How will the species influence the way you roleplay this character?:
Tricky is very centered around the idea of Shade-kin and specifically red-eye lore, as it is the basis for the character. The lore and core idea of what the species is greatly influences the character's demeanor and desires. A mostly mysterious trickster whom takes alittle too much fun in playing around with people, getting to know them along the way. In short, by following said lore alongside the rules about them, it serves as a way to bring a unique type of being for others to interact with.

Shadekin Lore

Shadekins are very prone to change by their ability to adapt, but what is the most noticeable change that can happen on one?
The directly most notable change is the altering of their eye color, alongside their other physical traits such as height and bulk. Being incredibly adaptative creatures it is noted that they take many shapes and sizes due to that vast adaptive sense to change to befit their environment appropriately such as terrain, fights and ETC.

Shadekins have a very unique ability to phase, but what are the limiting factors that prevent them from using it?
Being able to phase-shift is reliant and or haltered by a few things, such as sight of other beings around them and the amount of light in the area, the brighter the light or well-lit the area is, the more affected the ability is. Cameras and people keeping their eyes on them and observing also halts the process and trait entirely.

In general, shadekins take pride and respect in their names, but what, who, and how do they get a name?
A Shadekin's name can be given to them via accomplishments, either given by peers whom witnessed those happenings, or the name being given by tendencies that the Shadekin has. Such names being highly important to the Shadekin as they will seek to live up to that aspect of themselves, whether or not it was given to them by themselves or another.
