Defendant’s ckey: Not sure
Complaint: When I saw someone with a gun I thought they were either an antag or a rule breaker due to their armor and gun as robo, and since I’m not used to MRP where you can’t handle a problem unless you’re sec, coming from Bee LRP where it’s “do or die” all the time, I decided to stunlock him via shoving until sec arrived, possibly getting his weapon away from him so he couldn’t kill me or anyone else. I’m also so new to NSV specifically that I had trouble finding medbay to clone a dead guy I found hidden in the chapel where I myself was hiding (that is to say I’m unfamiliar with the new content so I’m just playing low impact/difference roles like chef and thought I might try lawyer out).
He ends up firing the gun at me as sec arrives, missing me (lol), and the officer, Brendan, starts attacking me instead which is shocking, and because he’s wearing a full hardsuit, I’m able to knock him over and get this large ion sword thing away from him, and, since I assume he’s rogue or some guy in a sec costume I go look for a trash can to throw away the thing I stole from him, and end up finding sec, and a trash can in sec, and radio the other sec officers (bc I assumed there were more than 1) saying what happened.
I went and checked the logs and apparently the robo did say that he was part of a “Fireteam” and that it was “to stop boarders” but I must’ve missed it because I didn’t see it until I checked the logs again. I also absolutely recognize this whole situation would have been avoided if I’d stopped and asked him what was up, and/or waited for sec, but as I said before, I’m used to being in situations where if you do that you will absolutely die, and waiting for someone else to take the first shot usually leaves you dead. However I recognize this is absolutely not the anarchic Bee LRP I’m used to, and in future conflicts I’m going to err on the side of caution, because my actions seem to have pissed several people off. I hope that the fact I didn’t try to do damage to anyone (only thing I did was shove) shows I’m trying to act in good faith here, and not like a shitter.
I saw a random engineer in the brig, and remarked about it on sec comms, and I shoved him because I assumed he was tresspassing, and it looks like he attacked me (as in damage) but I’m not sure how. (It said “pinning you to the ground” and “tightening their grip”.) Anyway the Brendan Dugger guy shows up, and I assume it’s a real sec officer so I say “arrest him” and I get shoved and arrested myself, and called a tard again. Stuff happens where he searches me and takes my access and calls me a tard (7 separate times over the whole round, along with “fuckwad” and “brainlet”) and even hits me a few times and throws me.
Eventually he starts taking me somewhere after I’ve lost my access and such and I keep begging people to help me as we walk. Eventually I get away somehow and he fires his pistol into the crowd hitting me twice and the AI’s shell once, then starts attacking me. Thankfully I got away and was able to uncuff in the chapel.
Yeah what I did wasn’t right (the shovelocking) but there were so many chances for this guy to actually roleplay or even really explain it or defuse the situation, but instead he opted for attacking and throwing out petty insults, which seems really unfitting imo
TL;DR, I assumed someone with a gun was going to kill me because I’m used to Bee LRP, the arriving sec, instead of roleplaying or even trying to defuse the situation just called me a “tard” several times and attacked me even after I was cuffed because I was “being annoying”
