Gimmick is a title spanning any job that spawns in random maint. They are usually equivalent to assistants, starting with maint access and no real job. All you have is your title and the gear you spawn with. All maint jobs have tools in their starting rooms that give them what they need to escape if they're locked in in some way

Bare minimum requirements: try to do what your assigned gimmick entails.

HELP! THERE'S NO WAY OUT OF MY SPAWN ROOM All gimmick titles spawn with the necessary tools to Break Out of their spawns if need be.


The Barber is a job that spawns in the barbershop. You have the tools to do surgery and other minor medical procedures, and the tools necessary to style hair. You spawn with a straight razor, which works as a normal razor, a scalpel, and a decent weapon due to its high blood loss, and a Hand Mirror, which allows you to style your own hair when you use it, and helps with self surgery. The barber shop also comes equipped with Hair dye, barber's aid, and a spray tan bottle which sprays enough spray tan to instantly overdose, giving any race short of an ipc a mop of hair to work with

  • Supervisor and Department: the Head of Personnel, and Service.
  • Barber maint shop: Your office is filled with some barber's tools, medical tools and a chainsaw. but the chainsaw might be taken to someone already.
  • FACEBUCKS cartridge: Can use 'Send to all' feature in the PDA messenger, and has 5 minutes cooldown time. It's the least way to advertise your barber shop.

Stage Magician

The Stage Magician spawns in an empty theatre. You have very little responsibility other than entertainment, similar to a Clown or Mime. However, you have a beacon that can give you one of three items, indistinguishable from his normal outfit.

  • Supervisor and Department: the Head of Personnel, and Service.
  • Theatre Access: You are a colleague of clowns and mimes too. Why not?
  • a choice of:
    • Tele-Gloves: After a cooldown, these gloves can let you use your empty hand on anything within three tiles, whether for remote stealing or force choking. They're loud and very visible, though
    • Bottomless Top Hat: This hat can store a limited number of mobs and items. You can even hide in it yourself! Simply hit something with the hat to try to shove it in
    • Invisibility Cloak: A cape that allows you to go invisible for a limited time, but recharges in darkness.
  • FACEBUCKS cartridge: Can use 'Send to all' feature in the PDA messenger, and has 5 minutes cooldown time. It's the least way to advertise your magic show.


A man with a doctorate in a field that is absolutely useless on the station, he has a room with two cells, one of which may or may not contain a potentially dangerous inmate. Try to at least bring the moodlet of everyone around you higher.

  • Supervisor and Department: the Chief Medical Officer, and Medical.
  • Medbay Access: Of course, you are a member of the medical department, thus you're allowed to access the medbay. Most of the time you are just an ad-hoc doctor with some more personal space if the chemist hasn't already taken it over as a drug factory.
  • Emotional Support Animal Delivery Beacon: Brings a cat. Hang around with your cat and let people pet it. Be careful of your cat since the cat is quite vulnerable from attacks.
  • Madness Immune: Since you're a master doctor of psychoanalysis, you're very capable of mental self-awareness, thus being immune to some hallucinations.


Whatever a VIP exactly is, It appears that you are allowed to be sticky with the captain. No? It must be an ignorant action against you. Nobody knows why you are a VIP, but there's a reason. El presidente, a CEO or an ambassador of a space nation, really whoever you are. Your payment is comparable enough to the captain and they know you are a VIP.

  • Supervisor and Department: No one. You don't need a supervisor. You are your supervisor.
  • High Payment: Your payment is exceedingly high, while you don't have any responsibility for your payment.
  • TWIT Cartridge: This allows VIPs to send their PDA message to all crews around the whole station! This is your true power, so don't hesitate to abuse it. Cooldown time is only 90 seconds which is 30 seconds faster when comparing to Captain's cartridge.
  • Loud mode radioset: Every crew must hear your voice with no misdirection. Don't make them miss your important voice and show them you're onboarding on the station.
