DayzRP Official Background(Refined edition)

4NmQ6.jpg

((WARNING! MASSIVE THREAD(EVEN BY MY DEFINITION). READ PAGE GUIDE FOR EASIER THREAD NAVIGATION. THIS WILL BE THE LARGEST THREAD I HAVE EVER MADE. ))

This thread is an attempt of mine to refine the official background story from this thread:

http://www.dayzrp.com/t-official-dayzrp-timeline-and-background

It will generally follow the same pattern, but this is an attempt to refine it, to add a bit more detail and media(shiny pictures!).

In addition to this thread, I am FINALLY making a proper attempt to create a larger server history. But this will be in a separate thread( http://www.dayzrp.com/t-dayzrp-history-after-the-first-2-weeks ) and it will feature a SUMMARIZED history of dayzRP, following these two first weeks mentioned here.

This thread will be built on the first two weeks, which is "fictional" in the sense that I basicly made it all up to serve as a suitable background for RP stories. It will answer questions like when the infection started, how it works, where it started and (roughly) how far and extensivly it has spread.

It will also detail how the world tried to deal with it.

Before the outbreak

Before the outbreak, the world was essentially our world. Yes, this statement confuses some, but to put it more clearly: Real world lore mirrors our own world with the sole exceptions of the arma2 incidents in Chernarus and Takistan.

This means things like Barack Obama is/was the president of the United States, there was a financial crisis, Putin is/was leading Russia, Iphones are still highly overrated and the PC is still superior to consoles etc etc.

The only addition is the 2009 crisis, which resulted in a chedaki uprising against the Chernarus goverment in the province of South Zagoria. How did this all end? The americans intervened in the conflict, along with the russians, and a spec-ops team called "Razor" succesfully managed to stop the conflict before it got out of hand. (In arma2 lore, this ending is refered to as "The War That Never Was" )

And finally in the summer of 2012, just a mere month before the outbreak, there was an american small-scale intervention in Takistan to overthrow the dictatorship ruling there. It was succesful, and thus its easily theorized that there was still an american military presence in Takistan at the time of the outbreak.

The first two weeks

1.0 - Day 1 JULY 25TH 2012 - PATIENT ZERO

Day 1 of the infection was, to many, a normal day. Not many people first realized this was day 1 of something, but some people started to hear rumours.

4Nnkb.jpg

The woods of green mountain can be perilous.

The rumours stated that a hunter in Sosnovka had been bitten by another person in the woods near Green Mountain. Since then a search-party had gone out into those woods and looked for this person, in fear that there was a madman on the loose.

The hunter was hospitalized on a clinic in Zelenogorsk, with near life-threatening injuries. Medical staff had managed to stabalize him but he remained in a critical condition.

There wasnt much else circulating that day, but it wasnt until the next couple of days when people started to realize the importance of what had just happened.

1.1 DAY 2 - JULY 26TH 2012 - INFECTION

By day 2 the news had spread outside of South Zagoria and made national news, because the hunter had first "died" in bed and then started to attack and bite several clinic staff. One nurse was severely injured, but a local policeman shot the hunter before he could hurt anyone else.

In a rare interview from those first days, the officer stated:

"It was horrible. He was chewing on her, litterly trying to eat her alive! I shouted for him to stop but he completly ignored me! I fired in the air, and only then did he lift his blood-covered face and look at me!

He...he let out some beastly howl and started charging me! I had to shoot. I shot him five times and I only slowed him down! Not until I shot him twice in the head did he stop."

The story grew quickly, and hit the blogosphere. Within hours, it was international news, although noone(except the usual zombie fanatics perhaps) were very concerned it was something to truly worry about.

Meanwhile, locals of Sosnovka reported worry that none of the search party that went out to find the man that bit the hunter had returned home.

1.2 - DAY 3 - JULY 27th 2012 - WILDFIRE

July 27th is by most nations actually regarded as day 1, because that's when the "infection" started to surface as a real problem. Until then, the "minor incidents" were thought to just be local and not an issue for concern among nations or people in general.

Day 3 was different in many ways.

First, news media reported large-scale rioting had occured in Zelenogorsk during the night and then later into the morning, with "people acting like rabies-infected dogs". Later in the day there was no contact with Zelenogorsk at all, and the few reports that came in was from the bordering villages of Sosnovka, Drozhino and as far down as Pavlovo. Apparantly the "disease" had reached these villages and civilians had called desperatly saying "people are dying by the hundreds!". Contact was soon lost with many of the police officers in these villages.

CDF forces deploying to South Zagoria.

Now the Chernarussian goverment responded in force. CDF forces were mobilized and within 6 hours they were sent to the entire region. Roadblocks were set in place and entire south-western South Zagoria was sealed off.

1.3 - DAY 4 - JULY 28th 2012 - FEAR

It was already clear in the beginning that the CDF efforts to contain the outbreak had failed. Civilian and police calls came in from all over western South Zagoria. Pushtoshka, Vybor, Myshkino, Rogovo, Pogorevka, Bor, Kozlovka, Kamenka, Kamyrovo and Pulkovo all reported incidents. In all villages except Kozlovka contact was soon lost.

In Kozlovka, the villagers had rallied and formed an effective militia that combated the infected. Contact with them was kept up and for a long time, they were the best source of information to both media and the goverment on what was actually going on.

That is, until the goverment started to keep a lid on the information was released.

This was quickly noted by the public. Some called it a proper effort to reduce panic. Others blamed the goverment for censorship and that they were trying to hide their own involvement in the outbreak.

Civil unrest in much of Chernarus followed, and it seriously slowed CDF's deployment of reinforcements to the area.

NAPA and other resistance groups started talking about taking to the forests again and doing what they could, or if just to find out what was going on.

By the end of day 4, the story was the main story circulating globally. Titles in media included "Hundreds presumed dead in disease that ravages Chernarus countryside" or "Goverment efforts to slow mystery disease fails in Chernarus".

There wasnt any global panic yet, but there was a growing concerns amid goverments and the WHO that they were facing another pandemic, but this time much more potent then SARS or the swine flu.

59slx.jpg

During the night of day 4, the infection spread quickly. Infected individuals congregated into "hordes" and overwhelmed military units in the field, before they roamed into the countryside and descended upon unprotected villages and towns that in the end only served to swell the size of the hordes. The size of these groups simply proved too much for CDF forces to handle.

1.4 - DAY 5 - JULY 29TH 2012 - CHAOS

Day 5 was generally regarded as the day when things tipped overboard. Some experts think that the situation might have been saved on day 5 if the CDF and international response had been quick and effective enough, but truth be told, it wasnt.

CDF did their best though. Regiment after regiment of the nation's army was sent into the crisis zone. Some emerged in tatters from the infected areas, with horror stories of what had happened. Some were never heard from again.

CDF even tried to deploy armor, which was effective in the beginning, but when CDF supply chains ran low the tanks became stranded. There was even reports of some infected managing to tear open crew doors and get inside, but those were generally disgarded as it would take super-human strength to do.

59sDC.jpg

In the end, CDF resorted to sending in their air force to bomb infected villages and towns. This only proved moderatly effective however, as the CDF had a limited number of aircraft and the infection was spreading too fast for them to keep up with.

Information of the disease started to become more and more specific though. The infected, in some circles now called "zombies" or "runners", displayed behaviour very familiar with rabies, just way more deadly.

The newspaper "Novigrad Daily" posted the following information of the infected, using survivor testimonies as sources.

- Any attempt to reason with them is futile. If they hear you, smell you or see you, they charge you and will attempt to bite you.

- Some of the infected just bite and then move on. Some however seems to litterly want to eat the bodies of the fallen. Some of the corpses are eaten until there's just bones left. Some of the bodies however are just "partially eaten" and then they rise again. Roughly 80% of all victims rise and become zombies within 1 minute of their death.

- The disease transfers through bites. There are however reports of unbitten people also being infected, which might indicate that the disease is airborne or travels through surfaces. It might also be food or water-supply related.

- Tanks and airborne assets are so far the only real effective ways to stop the infected. There are reports of thousands of them being killed in this way. It is thus assumed that the death toll is now in the thousands, not in the hundreds as previously stated.

- Bodyshots with low-calibre weapons are highly ineffective. High-caliber weapons do the trick, but the infected are difficult to hit due to their erratic running patterns. According to soldiers in the field, they often zick-zack and run very fast.

Headshots bring them down, but they are difficult to do.

Similar stories soon aired in other media, with some even outright calling the infected "zombies". The story was out globally, but most civilians in other countries considered it a local problem and not something that directly threatened or concerned them.

These stories did not help stop the panic that now erupted in Chernarus. Civil unrest peaked. Stores were looted, anarchy erupted into the streets. The president was moved from Novigrad to an unknown location, while the remaining CDF reserves and the police struggled to maintain control of the rest of the country.

1.5 - DAY 6 - JULY 30th 2012 - INTERVENTION

DAY 6 was known to many chernarussians as "the day the foreigners thought they could do better."

The infection spreads like a wildfire during the night of day 5, and envelops the NWAF and entire central south Zagoria. Cases are started to be reported on the outskirts of Berezino and Chernogorsk, and the NEAF is generally regarded as the only airfield still in control by CDF forces. Air assets are lost en masse as the infected take NWAF and Balota, with huge CDF casualties in the process.

Now however the international community intervenes. International forces from many countries, including France, Great Britain, USA, Russia, Germany, Poland, Italy and Canada, as well as some others, swarm the countryside of South Zagoria.

The american base on Utes, being kept as a base for a local garrison ever since the 2009 incident, is used to launch air assets and an aggressive campaign against the infected.

59tQt.jpg

US Special forces being deployed near Novy Sobor.

This "international task force" however is relativly small, just roughly a thousand men and women, and it has been put together in a mere few days to handle the outbreak, an outbreak the international community still believes is a limited disease that can be easily contained. Despite the countless complications, this task force is initially effective.

NWAF is briefly reclaimed by french and american forces, and elsewhere in South Zagoria the international task forces manages to give the infection a moment of pause.

Russia also intervenes, although separatly from the international task force. They send a few dedicated special forces units over the border to help contain the outbreak, and these units participate in some of the heaviest fighting in the northern part of the province.

59u3l.jpg

WHO(World Health Organisation) sends inspectors to the country in an effort to find what caused the disease and where it came from, and for a moment, media and the world seems to think the threat is largely dealt with.

Surely the gathering of the military might from some of the most powerful nations on earth can stop the disease?

To take further safety measures, the entire province of South Zagoria is quarantined by joint russian and CDF forces. Lingering animosity since the 2009 incident complicates the cooperation however, and some question how effective the quarantine actually is.

1.6 - DAY 7 - JULY 31ST 2012- COLLAPSE

It had now been a week since the first report of patient zero, and the efforts by WHO investigators to track down the source of the outbreak fails. The region around green mountain and Zelenogorsk is so heavily infested with infected that the international task force fails to establish security effectivly for the WHO investigators, and as a result the operation ends in a failure with almost all investigators and escorts killed.

The night of day 6 and the morning of day 7 sees some of the heaviest fighting between zombies and military forces in South Zagoria. Despite the military efforts, the infection spreads to almost all of south Zagoria.

59umT.jpg

The capitol of the province, Chernogorsk, sees some of the heaviest fighting in the outbreak. The city is shelled and the task forces send in a lot of manpower, but urban conflict against the infected proves a near hopeless task and the city falls with massive casualties to CDF and international forces.

On the morning of day 7, only Elektrozavodsk, Msta, Kamyshovo and Solnichiy are unaffected and have no reported cases. Refugees are pouring in from all over South Zagoria both to these areas and to the west.

Some try to flee north, but are met by massive russian forces guarding the border. Noone is allowed in or out, the russians even deny "allied" air assets to fly over their territory.

59uq0.jpg

Russian forces on the northern border of Chernarus on day 7. These russian troops were ordered to hold position to maintain the quarantine, despite the heavy casualties of allied troops just a few kilometers from their position.

Although the efforts to kill the infected has proved largely succesful due to a combined deployment of armor and air, the scope of the outbreak starts to overwhelm most foreign units in the field. The infection also hits their own ranks. Infected pilots crash helicopters and airplanes. Infected are seen tearing into APCs and vehicles, soldiers panic and fire on each other. As well disciplined and well trained these soldiers were, they were not prepared to have to fight their own friends when they were bitten or infected, not to mention having to face undead monstrosities in hordes of the thousands.

CDF forces disintegrate into almost nothing, and most other countries fall back to the south-eastern corner of South Zagoria.

These news however do not immidiatly meet the media, because the only news outlets reaching the public are in Elektrozvadosk and Solnichiy, and they are being scrambled and activly jammed to prevent panic from reaching.

People try to evacuate(intentionally trying to violate the quarantine), but panic erupts and hundreds people are lost in accidents, panic and friendly fire in these evacuations.

The docks in Elektrozavodsk and Solnichiy are overwhelmed with people trying to board boats to flee the infected, now encroaching on the remaining "untouched" territory. Soon the first cases are reported in the remaining villages and cities, and total chaos ensues.

Meanwhile, it becomes clear the south zagorian - Chernorussian quarantine fails, as cases are reported all over central Chernorussia.

A few cases are also reported in southern russia, but russian officials flatly deny this in the media.

At the end of day 7, the amount of communication from allied forces in South Zagoria has dropped sharply, as most units has collapsed in the field. One of the last statements comes from a major Tyler of the US expeditionary force, that he's pulling his troops back to Utes.

His last statement heard over radio is "God be with you all."

In a Chernarussian TV channel however there are reports that there are scattered incidents where people that have been bit have not turned. Doctors and scientists are trying to figure out of a "cure" can be made from these "immune" individuals, but an official states that it could take months of work, as they do not fully understand the virus yet. Also, he says, it is important to note that even if "immune", the infected will still very much try to kill you.

1.7 - DAY 8 - AUGUST 1ST 2012 - PANDEMIC

Survivors are still trapped all over South Zagoria. Some have isolated themselves in their homes or taken to the woods. Some have taken shelter with the few remaining enclaves of military forces in the province. The fact that many of these have radios or communication equipment capable of listening in to the broadcasts is the only reason many of them know what is going on outside the province after day 8.

The infection continues to spread at a rate that puzzles global experts. Entire Chernarus is now put under lockdown, with more foreign assets being deployed. Russia and Takistan deploys large units along their borders to maintain safe borders and to prevent the infection from spreading, leaving Chernarus to its fate.

Central chernarus is overwhelmed quickly, with barely any remaining CDF forces capable of resisting the infected. The reserves are quickly overrun and in the middle of the day, the first cases are reported in Novigrad, the capital of Chernarus. Mass panic erupts and people try to flee the country. Most are stopped however by the foreign military quarantine gripping the country.

But it is too late. New cases are cropping up in Takistan, and southern Russia are swamped with so many reports that the media can barely keep up. Even the russian goverment officials are no longer denying that the quarantine has failed.

At this point, the story is the main news worldwide, but many are still unaware of the true nature of the disease. Most believe it is still something on par with Sars or the swine flu, and they are caught offguard by the brutality of the infection.

Previously thought to be a Russian-Chernarussian problem, Cases are now starting to be reported in weird places. Goa in India, Tokyo in Japan, Edmonton in Canada, Hamburg in Germany, Bergen in Norway, Cairo in Egypt and Rio the Janeiro in Brazil. It is clear the infection is now spreading through commercial airline routes from Russia and Takistan, and despite efforts to ground flights, new clusters of infected emerge at an alarming rate around these new hotspots.

The world's militaries and health departments organise a swift response, in coordination with the WHO, to isolate these new pockets of infection. But somehow, the infection continues to spread.

Meanwhile in South Zagoria, an eerie silence settles. A few remaining foreign units are still fighting in pockets of resistance in the province, but most people have perished or gone into hiding.

1.8 - DAY 9-13 - AUGUST 2ND TO AUGUST 6TH 2012 - APOCALYPSE

To the people trapped in South Zagoria, there is limited information about these days. What is known is coming in from desperate news reportings across the globe. Across europe reports are coming in of how the quarantines have failed and how many new hotspots are emerging all over the continent. From the Americas and Asia the reports are similar, with sometimes extreme measures taken to try and isolate and contain the outbreak.

As the days go by, the reports are further and further between, describing an increasily deteriating situation. In Pakistan, there's reports of nuclear warheads going off. In Canada, Scandinavia and Russia there's reports of people taking to the wilds to escape the urban centers, that are gradually turning into death traps despite the best efforts of the local militaries.

Russia goes dark on day 9, in the sense that all outgoing media reports cease to exist. In one single day, it is as if the entire country is holding its breath.

On day 13, among the last media reports to reach South Zagoria, there's reports that the infection has reached the middle east, Africa and Australia, thus effectivly having spread to the entire world.

Media expert commentaries are stunned at the spread rate. Normal quarantine protocols prove ineffective, and previously contained outbreaks appear to fail as the outbreak mysteriously spread.

Meanwhile, the virus itself fails all attempts of a scientific analysis, and the WHO issues a statement, one of the last messages to reach South Zagoria from the outside world: "We do not know what this is. We have never ever seen anything like it. Therefore, it can take months, if not years, before sufficent research has been conducted in order to create a cure or vaccine."

1.9 - DAY 14 - AUGUST 7TH - SILENCE

On day 14, there is silence across most of the broadcast waves. A few select people still have contact with others, but to most people the radio is eerie quiet. Wether that is because the communication infrastructure is broken down or offline, because of jamming or because noone is longer broadcasting is unknown.

59D18.jpg

Few survived. Fewer still will endure.

The last transmission heard on most common radio devices is a statement from a survivor in Kozlovka.

"Brothers and sisters, the world may have ended, but we will not end with it! Rise and fight these foul hordes, for they are no longer our fellow humans! Throughout history humanity has always persevered the steepest challenges. We will survive this as well, but only if we fight for our survival!

May god be with you! And if god isnt, for it is clear he no longer thinks much of the earth, then may luck and perseverance be with you. We will all need it to endure what comes."

2.0 - Summary of Lore details

The following is the summary, which basicly lists all the main plot details and points you might find interesting.

- The infection is global, which means it has spread to most if not all countries in the world. The exact state of all of these countries is unknown, due to a lack of communication with them.

- The infection kills in 6-8 hours. Sometimes this timer is way shorter, depending on how you got infected and how much of the virus got into your bloodstream.

Once dead, it reanimates you within a minute.

- The infection primarily spreads through bites, but it can also spread through infected water, food or possibly even touch. It is unknown just how effective Fomites(objects capable of transfering the disease) is in spreading the infection, but there are recorded cases of it happening. Once in your bloodstream, you qualify as fully infected.

- There is no known cure.

- Chernarus was isolated and quarantined once the international task force was defeated in south Zagoria.

- The infection started on July 25th 2012. Up until that point, the world lore was identical to our real world, with the exceptions for the events in 2009 in Chernarus, and 2012 in Takistan.(Both Chernarus and Takistan are fictional countries)

- Tanks were effective against the undead, but once swarmed, there were reported cases of zombies managing to get inside, some by somehow managing to open the reinforced doors. (I realize this is a MASSIVE stretch of realism, but its the only way I could see them defeat armor without making the virus airborne)

- The "UEF"(Utes Expeditionary Force) is actually an older american garrison stationed on the island of Utes since the 2009 crisis. Ever since the apocalypse, they've been running Utes as a relativly safe colony of the coast of Chernarus.

- Some humans are immune to the virus. This immunity is fairly rare. This means they cannot get infected or rise as a zombie. Since most survivors in dayZ gets pummeled and bitten on a daily basis by the zombies, they can generally be assumed to be immune. The zombies will still very much consider you dinner, even though you might be immune.

- The CDF were largely destroyed, and only recently has a fraction of the CDF emerged as a part of the staff faction.

- The infection spread rapidly once the Chernarus quarantine failed, so fast that it puzzled most experts. In 14 days most survivors lost contact with the outside world. That doesnt mean there werent survivors or even nations still fighting the infection in the outside world however. The loss of contact could be for many reasons.

- The ingame time is the same as the RL time. In dayzRP it is now the 5th of November 2013, and ingame it is the 5th of November 2013. It has been over a year since Patient Zero.

And there we have it, the new "refined" edition. As before, I'll make an approval poll to see if people like the lore or not. This is why this is in the suggestion forum to start with. The thread might be moved about to get more attention(I do that sometimes), and once/if it has enough approval support, I'll move it to the roleplaying forum and replace the old thread with this one.

I hope people enjoy the work I put into it!

Also, the forum history thread will be coming up soon(I promise this time). It is a massive amount of work, unfortunetly.

Pretty much, yes. The text is roughly 70-80% identical from the first version, but I did change some details and added a few things. And of course, I added shiny pictures.

This is still a work in progress though. Will probably make a third version at some point. But I made this a new thread, rather then just edit the old one, in order to try and get more attention to the fact that dayzRP DOES have an official background. It seems that's been missed by a fair few people lately.

Nice work Tomeran, although I feel it could do with a little more work on the story telling side. If you want some in-depth tips then feel free to PM me, I have run hardcore roleplaying servers ( out of Arma & DayZ ) with mass amounts of lore. This Wiki: http://wiki.lordofthecraft.net/ I pretty much helped write the majority of. Anyhow, it's good as it is and will please the majority of the server just the detail whores like myself :P

that is all well and fine. I used to write this on the dayzRP wiki, but the articles dissepeared and I wonder how many actually use the dayzRP wiki. Compared to the forums, I think they are very few. Therefore, I am a bit limited in terms of detail and narrative when writing these threads.

I am already known as the "king of text walls", yet I tried to write this in as much of a summarized fashion as possible, to make it easy for the average player. I could write a much more detailed or narrated version, but I wonder how many would ever read it. Not to mention it would probably take me a couple of weeks of pure writing to do.

Still, might be something for the future. I appreciate the feedback. :)

Since this is already down to the third page(!), I figured I'd bump it and get a few more votes. 45 is good, but I was hoping for a few more before/if I move it and replace the previous thread with this one.

I approve and am using this lore in my future writings, the only bit I am adding is that Chernarus was the not the only point of origin. Imo it would be easy to contain if it only started in Chernarus. Whereas if the infection had already spread to various places it would be much harder to contain and stamp out. Just an addition of mine, I'm glad you left it open :)

Normally I'd agree, but there's one factor that makes this disease almost impossible to control: The zombies run.

Usually when people think "zombie outbreak containment", they think in terms of "the walking dead" or Max brooks "World War Z" book. The later is VERY good referance material in just how difficult an infection like this is to stop. Even in that book, its clear that once the initial area(just the very local area) is out of control, its bound to be global. I think even the american CDC did studies on this: Even in a zombie apocalypse with walking zombies, if you cant control the immidiate area of the outbreak, then its likely humanity will go extinct.

Now multiply that with RUNNING zombies. Basicly what you do then is increased the spread rate and danger hazard by at least 5 times. Couple this with the fact that the infection can spread through contaminated water and food, as well somewhat unreliably through fomites(surfaces and touch), and you're screwed. CDF failed to contain the outbreak in Zelenogorsk and the surrounding villages, it got worse, and then its pretty much over.

The infection already did spread to multiple nations just a few days after patient zero, no matter the procautions certain nations took(and there's a secret story to that). But the point of origin was always suppose to be Green mountain. That is an important part in some of the major plots we got going.
