UN Peacekeepers Needed! (Lore Faction) (Recruitment: Closed)

Recommended Posts

Skinner    496
Posted (edited)

Hello, I'm TheMatt924. Some of you may know me as the brilliant, lovable, nerdy, harmless old Doctor West. Others might have played with me as James Skinner. Good times. Many of you have no idea who I am.  However, with the lore wipe approaching, I've decided that my next character is going to be a military character. Now I have no real military experience, and I suck pretty bad whenever I try to put on a Russian or Chernarussian accent, so my preference would be US/NATO forces. If you're like me then gosh golly gee do I have an opportunity for you! 

Q24wAIR.png

I want YOU for the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations

I'd like more Americans, however any UN/NATO military will be accepted. As the setting is immediately following the outbreak, I will be running this as a pretty strict military RP group, we will rely on in-game walkie talkies for the vast majority of in-game comms, using TS only when necessary. We will travel in formation, speak and act like actual military, and adhere to in-game ranks. I plan to task every member with certain goals and objectives to strive toward. Some will be very short term goals (such as go to this location, question civilians regarding this topic, escort WHO staff to this location to collect samples.) While others will be long term (Acquiring and maintaining advanced military communications equipment, arranging diplomatic negotiations between the UN and CDF, as well as any other military organization we might encounter.) 

What is the UN DPKO and what are our goals?

We are a Multinational Joint Task Force operating under the authority of the United Nations to secure peace and ensure the safety of the World Health Organization staff to conduct their operations. We will provide aid and basic supplies to any needy survivors that we encounter as well as offering them temporary shelter against the infected. We will operate defensively and make every effort to avoid firefights.

What we are NOT going to be:

We will not be shaking down civilians and stripping them of weapons, we will not be involving ourselves in wars between groups, we will not be hunting down known bandits to "bring them to justice" unless they pose a direct threat to UN or WHO staff. If we harbor a civilian who is then sought by a third party to the point where they demand that we "hand them over" we will not interfere. We will urge them to resolve the situation non-violently, but we will stand down and allow them to take the civilian without bloodshed unless they are UN or WHO staff. We will regularly attempt to scout and secure areas, particularly locations of value to WHO staff due to medical supplies or valuable research data. We will regularly attempt to liaise with local friendly CDF forces and offer whatever assistance are within our mandate (information, logistics, supplies, security). 

What should you expect?

Expect to be on the defensive all the time, we are not an offensive strike force. Expect serious military RP, we will talk and act like a real UN Military Force would be expected to for as long as that would be realistic. We're not here to meme around and rob people and devolve into crazy cannibals, so don't apply if that's your thing. People expect us to fall quickly, and I expect many to go out of their way to turn us into their enemy on the flimsiest excuse so that they can attack. I'm not going to lie, it's going to be tough. I need people who can RP and I need people who can PvP, people who know that they're going to be targeted and that they're expected to never be the first to fire. 

So all you filthy PvP scum and super soldier wannabes, now's your chance! Shoot me or @Chief a PM or comment here to say you're interested. If you're not interested in a military role and you'd prefer to be a doctor or researched for the World Health Organization, post here instead.

Update: Recruitment is now closed.

I think we have about 1 doctor role left available if anyone is up for grabs.

Private security has also been written down but will need to go through @Chief for more clearance on it.

Thanks man, but you'd better act fast if you want the chance. Judging by the lack of interest from the community, the UN will likely get melted faster than a snowball in Phoenix. I've got like 5 definite members and a bunch of "maybe's" so we couldn't guard a hot dog stand currently. Hopefully word gets out and people apply in the coming weeks.

I currently harbour at least 4 former UN soldiers, pre wipe. I'll have to see what they think of the idea.

This seems like a pretty good start. Past forms of the UN have been as described, for the memes and shakedowns. I like the direction this has and I appreciate the fact that it will be a defensive and hopefully longer lasting group. Most UN groups I have noticed have characters active for the time being of the UN (which was normally short). This seems like a good opportunity for some UN characters to survive and be RPed long after the UN has had its run in Chernarus. I know we probably have a few in game but I've never personally met them. (Like maybe a few people above me here, their character may or may not be ex-UN).

to be fair I know your rp and what you can do. If i wasn't promised to another, i'd be in. So I guess all you really gotta do is kill pado.

Good Luck Matt, But I'm planning my own group with a few friends right now for Lorewipe so I can't chip in on this one. 
Hope this all works out for you tho and if not, there's always a spot open for you in our "project"

It'd be a real shame if this group doesn't take off. I can tell that you have the right attitude and idea for this kind of group, all you need is people. Unfortunately this kind of RP is not up my alley, but I do hope you get the kind of people and the amount of people to make this a long lasting thing.

Welcome to the UN DPKO @bcarterames, anyone else interested in an official UN group sanctioned by the Lore Masters and run as a serious military sim group, shoot me a PM. The roster is coming together nicely, so just give me an idea of your characters name, country of origin, and what you have in mind for their backstory.

Lack of interest is likely from how boring the idea sounds. But thats just salty me talking. Matt is probably the coolest guy on the server, so if anyone can make this work, it'll be you. <3

Thanks Joffrey, I learned a lot from you and Blitz in the last UN Group, it really set the bar for me as far as RP in a military sense. I was initially a little worried that the very realistic portrayal of the UN in the new lore might suck the fun out of it, but having spoken to a handful of folks who've signed up already and speaking to Chief and Major I can honestly say that I am extremely excited for the lore wipe to start this group. After a slow start, I've been blown away by the enthusiasm for a real UN military sim group and we've been kicking around a ton of fun ideas to make this really stand out as the best iteration of the UN yet seen on DayZRP.

Question @TheMatt924,

 

So Just a thought, will you and your boys be using only 5.56 and 45acp weapons? or will they be a free choice of weapons for your boys like 7,62 x 39?

Good question. The UN Peacekeepers are permitted to use any military grade weapon. However, NATO weaponry and ammunition are preferred.

Negative, that's a civilian grade weapon. So we'll permit the use of:

  • M4
  • Aug
  • FAL
  • MP-5
  • AKM
  • AK-74
  • AK-74U
  • AK-101
  • SVD
  • MP-133 Shotgun (either variant)
  • CZ-75, Glock, or 1911 pistol
  • Baton or Combat knife

No axe, spear, longhorn, winchester, repeater, sporter, trumpets, RAK, double barrel shotgun (or sawed off), P1 pistol, blaze rifle, magnum, etc will be permitted. It's okay to hold one of these temporarily while you gear up to defend yourself, but it must be abandoned when grouped up with the rest of the UN or once a suitable replacement is found.

@TheMatt924 I have a suggestion, 

I was thinking that, yiur radii men or contact security people or whatever you call them, have a in game radio frequency that you contact or people survivers can contact your men for information where to go and such. 

What you think?

That's a great suggestion @Western. It's still early and I don't want to guarantee anything, but we are working on a communication process in the group that will allow each squad leader to have access to a separate frequency on the IG radios. This would allow our squads to communicate amongst themselves without interrupting each other, as well as allowing our Radio Operator/Communications Specialist (@Malet) to relate messages to and from each squad. 

The idea would also be that Malet would be monitoring a public frequency in order to speak to civilians in need, friendly foreign officers, local government transmissions, etc. Once the plan is finalized we will be posting more about that on our official group page (once that is created) more details to come!

You should stick to those weapons only.

Technically, you can use any NATO cartridge weapon. That includes 9mm, 5.56mm, and 7.62x51mm. That's what my NATO group is planning on limiting ourselves to.
