What are some goals people work towards?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering, as I am new to the role play aspect of DayZ, what kind of long term goals could you set for your character?

That depends on your character. Everyone has different needs.

Most survivors want to just find a place that is 'safe'.

Try to be creative though. It's always good to see characters with creative goals.

Here is a ooc goal that I have always followed. Aim to be the entertainer, while roleplaying always thing about the other you are roleplaying with, sell your character and in return you will get the same back....hopefully.

But icly? Make your characters background and work from there... Do what he or she tells you to do :)

This depends on what your character is like.

I would recommend that you stay open to letting people you run into affect your character, I mean mentally not physically. If you don't want people to perma scar you don't let them. I've had my current character for many months and a lot of crazy things have happened to make her the way she is now. I have no intention of ending her life any time soon as there is still a lot I want to do with her story.

I guess the best thing to do is keep aware OOC of what is going on in your character's head, and be open to things you didn't expect to happen while in game.

Honestly, Enzo doesn't have much goals.

Before, his goal was to find ways to survive, then people to survive with. Then, it was people to survive with that lasts for more than 3 weeks. At the moment, he's done that.

I'm working on a few things at the moment, that are leaving a few things open to outside forces to see how Enzo could play his hand next. He's made a radio broadcast about wanting to find some sort of female companion, but so far no one has jumped on that at all (not like he's looking for a wife, fuck lets just start with a date).

Things with the French are starting to get interesting as well, and it might lead to Enzo adopting his mafia ways more than he ever did before.

Eradication of the Cherarussians. :troll:

It really depends on your character and group. Some people are here on a mission, while others just want to be better off than other survivors.

My character stated off just trying to get out of the country (cliche I know) but as he met people he realised that his main goal was to help all those that needed it and to defend those that need defending. (this has become a hard thing to do though in SA as there are very few 'hero' groups)

A main thing to look for is thinking long term, try setting a camp or even finding a group with one already. Having supplies to trade or regear immediately with can make DayZ so much better.

The goal of my character is to like many others: Survive.

However, she also has a few side goals, like for example: never loosing who she actually is, a good hearted person who wishes nothing else but to give and help.

As I am a starting roleplayer, I have dedicated a bit more time to writing his story, and also added goals to it. Long story short (literally), his goal used to be to take the amazing girl I met and take her out of the hotzone. As soon as things went south worldwide, and the hotzone was no longer a contained area, his goal became to get to her and keep her safe, wherever that might be. I have planned out a chain of events that will lead him on some sort of chase across Chernarus, using his knowledge on electronics to gather whatever information he can. A prerequisite of advancing this personal quest is the presence of at least one other character, so that the story may be grown organically in maybe a completely different direction than I had anticipated. So far it has been interesting.

ICly I have a few goals that I don't quite want to advertise on the forums, but OOCly I like to think of DayZRP as a television show. Sometimes it can be really good, and other times you toss out the script. I aim OOCly to try and make the show as good as humanly possible, while at the same time trying to make it as realistic as possible. I find the immersion doesn't come from the game mechanics and the environment anymore, but it comes from the player interactions. If done well, I find myself becoming highly immersed, even if sitting in a chair looks like I've become one with it.

For me its to stop being a shy voice-RPer and finally roleplay with a group of people to learn how to RP better.. Although it's hard since I usually run trough map all lone, not meeting people for hours.
