From Yogstation-13
Jump to: navigation, search

In Yogstation, your job is somewhat akin to your character class in that it defines your starting equipment, your station access, and what you are expected or required to be doing with your time. Various jobs, such as Security postings and Command roles have timegates to them that must be fulfilled before the option to play them is available. Additionally, due to the Muman-centric nature of the corporation running Space Station 13, Nanotrasen, only Humans are allowed to play as Command staff, though in times of need and understaffing, non-Humans may be promoted into these roles by the Head of Personnel or Captain.
