New Era [Recruiting] Blame Zunn

Recommended Posts

"Is any of it real? I mean, look at it! A world built on fantasy! Synthetic emotions in the form of pills,

psychological warfare in the form of advertising, mind-altering chemicals in the form of food, brainwashing

seminars in the form of media, controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks.

Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived remotely close to it, since the turn of the century.

We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down

on digital displays, hypnotizing into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty

deep, before you can find anything real.

We live in a kingdom of bullshit, a kingdom you’ve lived in for far too long."

Introduction

[align=justify]We were building a technological civilisation, that promised to fulfill all dreams with almost the touch of a button. And yet when the wishes finally materialised, they were not material at all. Our lives had become a pattern of diminishing returns. Where every success was accompanied by a failure. Perhaps not our own, but the failure of others. We could not see that pushing for our selfish gains caused such distress that it could not pass without affecting us and who we were. We started to push more and more to get what we thought it was we wanted, only to discover that it was in turn accompanied by suffering and pain. We have almost no technology left. The buttons we were promised to fulfill our every need no longer surround us. To a point- as ironic and insane as this may sound- we have become free. Yet the presence of all that we have produced, the resources being an outcome of our past lives are still here- and they are shrinking. As they lessen, our frustration grows. The vicious circle takes it’s toll again. And old patterns start to settle in. The only thing we focus on is getting more and more- we’re greedy, lazy and lack curiosity. Through that we dedicate ourselves to an ongoing war for what is left.

We wander through towns and encampments seeing anger, aggression, hatred and we do not stop to witness. Silently we slip into the background and wait for the moment to pass. We are afraid of acting on what we feel is right. We only act in the presence of others known to us- as if we put our life and it’s meaning in their hands. We are not truly here. We don’t allow ourselves to be. Why? Because we never had the chance to learn the importance of who we are. The importance of being true to ourselves. The importance of discovering the vast unknown that is us. We have hidden away things that we knew once to drive us. We are ashamed of our fears, our weakness’, so we hide who we are. We distinguish between and judge what is positive and negative instead of accepting and through that rediscovering who we are and realising why it came to be that we remained.

We walk through nights seeing mile after mile of abandoned, darkened and decaying houses. The things once precious to one's present there before are fading into nothing. Those houses could be restored and utilised to help create a “today” worth living in and a “tomorrow” worth investigating.

Our Past

"The people of your culture cling with fanatical tenacity to the specialness of man. They want desperately to perceive a vast gulf between man and the rest of creation.

This mythology of human superiority justifies their doing whatever they please with the world, just the way Hitler's mythology of

Aryan superiority justified his doing whatever he pleased with Europe. But in the end this mythology is not deeply satisfying.

The Takers are a profoundly lonely people. The world for them is enemy territory, and they live in it like an army of occupation,

alienated and isolated by their extraordinary specialness."

[align=justify]We were all alone. Everyone of us wondering through life half awake, glued to our screens with a hope to find a fraction of humanity in that cold, motionless glass pane. On occasion we flickered through pages and pages of meaningless words. Inspirational quotes, self motivation, learning to love yourself… And all that superficial bullshit. We logged into our accounts, some of us never logged out and searched- for a “like” a “follow” a message anything that would show us we matter. We never got enough and how could we- it wasn’t real. We didn’t know that at the time, so we continued our miserable attempts. We photographed, commented, joined communities - socialised online in search of something that was missing. We played games on computers and consoles, we read books on Kindle’s and tablets, we watched movies and series on our tv’s and laptops. We used shit like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to connect with friends- the ones we once had and the ones we thought we were making. We learnt how to cook using reddit and how to tie a tie on youtube. We remained hidden in our safety bubble. Behind a screen and a microphone. Alone. At the first sight of discomfort we would run. Disconnect, block users- never have to deal with or take responsibility for what we were doing, saying or writing. Instead we lurked. Observed their profiles on social sites, silently stalked them until all of that anger and hatred got washed away, because we found our secret explanation as to why we are better than they are.  

We were Kings and Queens in our fake empires, built on the acceptance granted to us by others, based on the image of us we portrayed. It was easy to model self-control and stability from within the walls of our kingdoms. No one else was there to see, who we were and how the world behind our screens affected us.

Some of us had pets, others had plants and those were the only living beings we touched, besides family members during awkward gatherings and the odd friend that would stick by us through thick and thin- but in retrospect it was more out of sentiment than for seeing who we were. Even we didn’t truly know.

More than once we experimented with drugs, alcohol, we made questionable decisions all in the name of feeling something. Still nothing. Eyes closed, counting imagined stars with a desperate attempt to fall asleep and instead wondering what it was that we were missing.

We had nothing besides our jobs, plants, pets and the screens we held so dear, until one day he came. Out of nowhere on Reddit, a thread was posted: I AM A SELF ACCOMPLISHED MAN I HAVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU WANT, AMA. We asked. He answered. His name was John.

Read John's Lore here

[spoiler=Read more of our past]

[align=justify]With every answer he provided we felt he had lived our lives, knew what we had been struggling with. The void so much present in every one of our souls started to fill. Yes, he was wealthy, but he understood. Reading his answers was like hearing an echo of the thoughts we had pushed away from consciousness. From Reddit we moved to a private community he had set up for people like us. For the ones that needed something more than just a fraction of the feeling of being alive.

We spent hours exchanging messages and over time our community grew. We bonded over jokes and stories. And soon came to realise that we weren’t alone. That so many others were going through the same experience and only one of us knew why.

It was all thanks to the kindness of that man, one who wanted nothing else but to ease our pain, we came to be. He gave us what we needed. Council when we asked, a listening ear when we spoke, reflection when we needed it and worried for us, when we thought we were forgotten. It was thanks to John, that we started to want. To want to leave our shells, our false kingdoms and our lives behind.

He didn’t agree. He wanted to make sure that our new lives would start in a safe space, where we could in peace explore who we truly were. It was important to him to give us the opportunity to grow without pain and fear, the opportunity that he wished he himself had.

He told us the story of how he had built his empire and how he came to abandon it. How his father’s wisdom bought him back to the reality he was destined for, but which he left behind a screen. His father’s dying breath gave him a sense of purpose and his life a meaning. He shared his troubles and the pain he endured taking all of his father's wisdom in at once. He had to do it all in an express motion or perish and like the rest of the false Kings and Queens reign in his Empire alone. He didn’t have a choice then - we did. He wanted us to take small steps out into the world. Brick by brick he dismantled our walls and drew us out into the world of existence. He celebrated and commended every little step we made and weeped over our pains and failures.  Once he deemed we had abandoned enough of our virtual needs, we could finally meet the man that we had come to admire and love. He made sure that every one of us could make the journey, if only we decided to choose life- all we had to do is reach out and take it. He set up a fund for those of us that couldn’t afford the travel. He made sure we would reach our destination safe and sound. All we had to do is grasp it. That proved to be a difficult task for many. But the few of us that did, quickly came to realise -in John’s new kingdom we were home. There we began the New Era of our lives.

All of those who were ready, who were invited, who opted for reaching out and reclaiming their lives, could pursue self exploration under John’s watchful eye. All those who were ready to commit to finding their meaning, find what drives them and connect with that, were invited to stay as long as they wanted on the condition they carry their own weight. We learnt to hunt, to farm, build. We learnt the importance of taking care of our bodies- as each and everyone of them is the temple within which resides a true and unique beauty- us.

It wasn’t easy at first. The handful of dedicated community members, who arrived to Chernarus first, were the ones with the greatest task at hand. To rebuild the little village that he had bought for us. We worked day and night. Blood, sweat and tears accompanied our journey of creating a world, our world, where people could finally for the first time live.

LjLAn60.png

[align=justify]As we soon discovered our paths had a test that each and everyone needed to pass in order to awaken the curiosity needed to thrive. John was a brilliant man. He was one that could say without any hesitation, that he had lived his life to the fullest. He told us the story of how he regained touch with his soul, how he drank from the goblet of life in the Amazon Forest, where accompanied by locals he absorbed the truth about his “self”. He had spent months there learning the secrets of preparing the traditional ritual where one drank Ayahuasca. He learnt how to guide curious beings through the ritual and how to ensure their safety. He explored Vipassana, spent days over days in complete silence, meditating- and encouraged us to do the same. To meditate and search deep within ourselves for the truth. No one was pressured into anything. John knew that if one decided to undertake a ritual out of any impure motive- it would end giving no insight, but in turn expanding one’s fear and pushing him further away from enlightenment. The first few of us, who decided to go on the two week long journey came out...different in a sense. The ones that did so were peaceful, more self aware- they seemed to finally have found that missing piece and it felt good to watch them grow. John took particular care of them. He taught them about acceptance- not just of others, but also of one’s self. He explained to them the concept of how human emotions drive us and how important it was to always remember that it is the factor that drives us combined with our curiosity of the world that makes us human. He said that curiosity was present in every being and it was smothered by uncontrolled emotions. Anger - Fear, Sadness - Joy, Love - Contempt. We had to learn how to recognise, express and further down the path master them. We had to become one with ourselves. To forget all of society's expectations and simply BE. For only through being in the here and now one could find his purpose.

"It is here that I can concentrate my mind upon the Remembered Earth. It is here that I am most conscious of being, here that wonder comes upon my blood, here I want to live forever; and it is no matter that I must die." John liked to repeat when we drifted off into moments past.

[align=justify]Some of us were fast to learn, they adapted with ease to the pursuit of purpose. They learnt, and arose quickly on their journey of self discovery. Our community was growing, John couldn’t master all guidance by himself. He found the one’s he believed to have reached the state of, what he called Ohana and they were the one’s who had dominance in learning. He believed that students are the only ones with the potential to have superiority over the master, so the ones that he chose he called his Dominants and allowed them to help assist others, that were still learning to walk consciously. John would always have a reason behind everything, even the names he would provide us. The Dominants would teach us how to become at peace with ourselves, help us free our inner truth by exploring all aspects of our being.

Days and people came and went. Most of those who arrived stayed though. It was difficult at first. Living at the village, depending only what we could hunt or grow, not knowing the local language. John chose our home well. Surrounded by mountains and forests we did not make much contact with the outside world. None besides the one John and the Dominants had using a radio and a slow internet connection to guide others to our reality. It was peaceful. Everything was visual, real. Everything we established was built on our effort for a better coexistence. We were not put on this world to please anybody and nobody was put here to please us. Everyone was who they were and we learnt to recognise and accept that. We were good in our Empire. We were happy. We wanted for nothing else but to achieve what John and the Dominants had managed to reach. We meditated daily as they did, we pushed our bodies to limits of exhaustion, embraced pain that came along with development and slowly  under the gaze of our Dominants, grew as people. There were the occasional trips to “the outside world” but they were few, it was only when we needed medication, sanitary equipment or food that we could not get ourselves. Bills needed to be paid and mail collected from a P.O box in the closest postal office. It was always either John or one of the Dominants to handle the mundane assignments. They had already reached their Ohana so they took up those tasks for us, we still needed to learn and they provided us with the means to do so. On occasion one of us would go with them, but it was rare that someone volunteered. We all knew that we weren’t ready.

Seeing us thrive made John’s heart fill with wonder and above all pride. Yet after a time we saw him becoming restless, uneasy, he seldom came to join us in our meditation. We could see him sitting by the water playing with his bracelet. The Dominants said he spoke more and more of the need to expand, to help more people to achieve what we had.

One night he came to a gathering and said he and the Dominants have been carrying a burden. They had spent days contemplating the best course of action and came to a decision. He did not say what it was, only that we had to wait until those outside our enclave return from their hunt before we discover what it was.

Days passed and John was nowhere to be seen. We never gave it a second thought. After all reality is in the present, not the past or the future. Once everyone had returned the Dominants called a gathering. It was then that we learnt the sad truth about what has happened. John had left. Not one of the Dominants seemed distressed, by the fact that our founder had- what we thought at the time, abandoned us. The truth was he didn’t. The truth was something we had already been told multiple times, but never really caught. He followed through on the whispers we had heard. He went out into the world to spread his wisdom amongst those less fortunate, those who had not yet experienced life- John’s purpose was to be humble and selfless and he couldn't achieve that with all of us surrounding him with admiration. He left alone, because the world had changed. It was not safe anymore. At the time we didn’t quite understand what that meant- we were to discover it once he knew we were ready to know the truth.

Our Present

“Child of mine Come as you grow In youth you will learn the secret places

The cave behind the waterfall The arms of the oak that hold you high the stars so near on a desert ledge

The important places And as with age you choose your own way among the many faces of a busy world

May you always remember the path that leads you back back to the important places”

[align=justify]We wake up with a sense of unity and a common goal to achieve. We want to be one. One body, One mind, one state. John is still with us- not in person, but we never lack his wisdom. He stays in touch through radio calls. He reminds us through that of what is important. John is not with us, not because- as we thought- he abandoned us, but because his purpose was to be humble. He could not fully achieve that with us constantly surrounding him in awe.

One of his recent messages told us to come and seek you.

If we want to live knowing who we are and what drives us - we need your help as much as you need ours. We have abandoned our enclosure to find you. Because your being here is what keeps us, as humanity in existence. We have been helping each other to thrive to the best of our ability. Now we want to help you. Both we and you are here for a reason. We know how to find ours. We need your help to achieve it. You need us- we are all in this world together. For a purpose, a cause. We have to find what it is-before it’s too late. Many have perished not knowing where their paths were meant to take them. Those were not important, they are no more. We remain- all of us- that includes you.

Please note, that this section of the lore will be updated periodically, as the group develops. We are a group, but we are putting a strong emphasis on individuality. Our members are encouraged and given freedom to act and move in directions they feel are important for the development of both their characters and our storyline. “The Present” story is a sum of all actions undertaken by our members and will be updated accordingly.

“New Era” is a heavy RP focused group. We are putting an equal emphasis on internal and external role play. Internally we have additions to this public lore, providing our members with much more details on our inner secrets.

We are in no way PVP oriented, although it is likely to happen from time to time, it is not something we seek. You should not consider us “bandits”, “heroes” or “survivors”.

Mainly we want to bring a different style of roleplay on DayZRP, something new and refreshing.

We accept any and all feedback either here on the thread, or privately via a PM or on teamspeak.

• Lead people towards an understanding of their purpose in life.

• Helping people realize that finding their purpose has an expiration date.

• Reach out to people with a helping hand.

• Leave our home and reach out to people.

• Learn.
