Initiations with notes

Question

Guest   
Guest

Would it be allowed? Say you are just outside a popular area, and you want to quietly make your intentions clear. Would this be acceptable? Almost similar to how a bank robber would pass a note to a teller to not cause a scene immediately.

Just wanted to know what the communities thoughts on this was. Personally I feel if it was done right and wasn't done for the sole purpose of gear it could be interesting.

Obviously this wouldn't work for a group of people, but say a straggler was a bit far from the pack, and you could pull it off?

I think this is an absolutely brilliant idea. It is much like a bank robber handing a teller a note. I feel it would be within the rules of a valid initiation. However, the note would have to state your intentions and the threat. One question I do have is, how can you prove they read it? If they read it and simply walked away you could not prove they read it. This means they could just walk away from the initiation.

You make a good point. I was thinking something a long the lines you put it at someones feet and point to it. As they look down you aim your weapon. It would be a gamble but if they randomly started walking away from the situation it would be odd to me. Of course if there was any uncertainty you could escalate the situation vocally or bail.

Asking: Any Admin

Q1. Can I initiate through a note? For example I leave one in the middle of the road that says "do not move or you die, i am watching from a few hundred meters away. Drop your weapons backpack and anything sharp and stay put or i will shoot you."

/Rampage - Are you being serious? NO you cannot do that.

Found this, so idk.

That seems to be a different situation. I think that is a no because the initiator is nowhere around. I could be wrong though.

Drop your weapons backpack and anything sharp and stay put or i will shoot you." Like I said before, if you weren't sure if the person read it, you could always continue vocally, but most people Iv'e come across read notes. Especially when you make it obvious you want them to read it. Curiosity in this case could the reason someone is caught in a sticky situation.

/Rampage - Are you being serious? NO you cannot do that.

Yeah I was thinking something a bit more obvious and personal. It could say "Come with me now or i'll paint the grass with your brains, make any stupid moves or sounds and you're dead". You then proceed to nonchalantly escort the man away and continue RP from there once you feel you are at a safe distance to continue your hostile RP unnoticed.

I read all of Diggy's posts in Khaliif's voice. Is that weird?

I'll state my personal opinion here:

I would argue that it's acceptable if it's done properly and really I believe that it would be a pretty unique way of initiating on someone. The question that Rampage answered is indeed a different scenario than what I think Diggy here is trying to get at. What he is suggesting would be fine in my opinion as long as it is a direct, ambiguous threat, there is no doubt that the intended victim receives his message, and he/she is given enough time to comply to his demands much like a normal, spoken initiation.

If it is done right, yes. I think if you asked him to look at this note and then when he's read it, you both walk a way, you have your weapon drawn to show that you are going to rob him.

Here is the thing. If you sit 200m+ for example with a sniper and drop a note that says "drop your shit or die" and you shoot them assuming they read the note and did not comply that is badrp and to be honest a very lazy RP. That is against the rules in my opinion and something we dont want people to get into the habit in. However, lets say you were at green mountain where there are numerous people and you want to kidnap or do something hostile to a specific person. You drop a note by a person and say "Do not say a word, do not try to warn anyone over your radio or with any signals. You will go to a man with a red hat at the gate and he will escort you to us. If you alert anyone or do not comply to our demands we will kill you."

that would be something I could see working, however you have to make sure they read the note and understood it clearly.

but as I said if you are going to leave a note and camp hundreds of meters away and just start robbing/killing everyone, well that really isnt RP at all.

Mr. Diggy do you feel your question has been answered? You have gotten responses from the community as well as staff. Do you have any other questions as well?

I did this once. I knew that a bandit group was heading for a particular military base so I left notes in the barracks saying they you need to drop your guns and walk away with your hands up. One put his hands up when he walked out, the other made a run for it. He didn't get very far.

I love the idea, it's great! But as it has been noted by several people...how can you prove that someone read the note if they choose not to comply. Are you going to shoot them for non-compliance? Or are you simply going to let them walk away? I could see so much confusion over the details on this resulting in formal reports.

I can see the victim taken advantage of the fact that you don't know if he read the note or not. He can just walk away like he didn't read it and then shoot you later because he has kos rights, which is badrp imo. But I think Rampage kinda summed up most of the answer to your question, make sure its roleplayed out well and legit but be prepared for the consequences...hope these answers were what you were looking for, with that being said....
