Hey all, should be jumping into DayZRP soon for the first time with my character playing a firefighter. Wondered if anyone else is using a character with the same skillset, if you tend to group and how you play your character?

I've seen some people playing firefighters, but tbh it's kinda odd. I always found it weird when I came across a guy actively seeking fires to put out. Doesn't really make sense. Like, feel free to play any character you want, but please don't walk around in full firefighter gear looking for fires to extinguish.

In my ~2 years here, I've only ever seen one firefighter, or at least only one that was straightforward about it. It's a unique-ish idea; it's not an unheard of character idea, but you don't often find people playing a character like that.

Well the reason I chose a firefighter is because they do much more than just put out fires. They're adept with first aid and first response, good with a large number of tools including axes, sledge hammers, saws, cutting equiptment, etc with a lot of specialist training and are physically fit as part of their job. Seemed a good choice as a base for me, I wasn't planning on attempting to go around extinguishing fires but more as a support character with a broader skillset. Although I'm happy it's something different, keeps it fresh.

Sounds good man. I just cringe when I see people trying to find fires to put out in the apocalypse. Sounds like you have a solid idea though. Good luck.

That would make a little bit more sense tbh. I mean if you think you will enjoy it then by all means go for it.

I think any emergency service experience is a pretty good background for a survivor. They'll often have lots of skills pertaining to staying alive as you said, and is a nice breath of fresh air from the usual "I was a soldier" backstory behind a lot of characters who have any sort of survival skills prior to the outbreak.

Not a bad idea to do something different. There are a lot of soldiers, but the main reason I play one is because I was actually a Marine for 8 years. Can't tell you how many times I run into soldiers who are 20-25, and are somehow Captains, and Sergeant Majors and what not. Glad to see you are pursuing something different.

I had a pal whose character gimmick was that he was a Firefighter in Elektro when everything went down. Trauma caused him to stay "locked" in time, effectively being "insane". I say "insane" in quotations because he simply suffered from PTSD but folks called him insane. He roleplayed it incredibly well. Constantly stayed in uniform, carried an axe, extinguisher, water. Didn't use a gun because he'd say he was on duty. Once walked into a camp that had a fireplace going, screaming for everyone to get back, then extinguished the flame with his water and told everyone they were safe and secure, and to try and prevent forest and wild fires.

It was quite honestly beautiful.

I'd say go with being a firefighter, be creative with it, and have an absolute blast. It should be cool to see.

Ive always wanted to do this with a squad of 5 or 6. Running around helping people. I feel like I would make it trolly though, so i never did it

Hey all, should be jumping into DayZRP soon for the first time with my character playing a firefighter. Wondered if anyone else is using a character with the same skillset, if you tend to group and how you play your character?

how do you join can you help me talk to someone about it?

You need to get whitelisted then create a character. Click on Newcomer Guide and it will walk you through how to do it.

Sounds interesting that, my character hasn't quite lost his mind yet but he's struggling. Just played on the EU server but didn't see a single person in Cherno, Electro, Balota or Kamy so hopefully I see someone soon.

Hey there, new guy here ^^

Firefighter sounds like fun, though do you need permission to actually play one or was it more to share thoughts and opinions?

Still need to get whitelisted before I could make any character though ;)

Don't think so buddy you can make whichever character you like as long as its relevant to the lore of the RP. Good luck for getting Whitelisted :D
