The Departed - Post LW Group Interest Thread

Recommended Posts

Joules    226

I'm going to preface this entire thread by stating that this is nowhere near complete. The lore will be fully fleshed out. I just didn't find it fair to use my internal knowledge of the lore to write something before anyone else has the chance to. The graphics are also a WIP, and the group thread will have more pretty pictures. Any advice off what I present here would be appreciated.

Group Lore Basic - Will be expanded on to something stupidly long and indepth.
"Well its been one hell of a journey. I mean, look at what we've dealt with. I never expected that I'd actually have to evacuate the Embassy. It all started with the Russian aggression. We, the state department, figured it best to not evac and instead stick around to assist US citizens here. Then the news broke. The infection... Airports were closed and it seemed we might just be trapped here. We requested evac, and the steps went into action." 

"Everything within the Embassy went pretty damn smooth. We destroyed anything that could be used by looters or the Chernarussian State, loaded into our humvees and sedans and took off. We had a health size amount of US citizens who were being evacuated. Some stayed behind upon learning their Chernarussian loved ones weren't being evacuated. We arrived at Novigrad International Airport, having permission from the Chernarussian Government. As we drove, we encountered  a hail of violence from desperate citizens. Since we are still here, obviously the evacuation did not go as planned. We waited and waited, and nothing arrived. The locals were getting restless and we had to abandon the city. Quickly we drove out of Novigrad and recovered outside the city limits outside of an abandoned gas station. We decided our next move."

"Kirvograd was the plan. NATO forces were there, to the best of our knowledge. By the time we arrived however it was over. We saw the bombings. Scared, we needed a new plan. Miroslavl was one idea proposed, but we decided going there wouldn't help us get evacuated. We decided it was safest to attempt to travel to South Zagoria. Based on information available to us, NATO troops were in the area, and earlier the United States had deployed troops to Chernogorsk and Elektrodvsk from Utes. If they could arrive in South Zagoria, then obviously they would be able to get us out."

"Then the attack happened. On our way to South Zagoria, the first Humvee in convoy exploded and a hail of gunfire peppered our vehicles. Everyone scrambled. For a week, we searched for each other and a way to get out of the country. So far we have found a few of us. God help us all."

The Permadeath of Henry Nielson

Spoiler

"When it comes to permaing characters, I see it like this. Not only is it a way to give your favorite stories the ending they deserve, it’s also a great tool when it comes to furthering the stories of the people around you and the groups you’re involved in. I could give you several examples of that, but I’ll limit myself to just one so you won’t have to read a wall of text.


A while ago, I played a character named Henry, who had only one real friend in the world. Some time into the apocalypse, we got captured by a group of 10-12 people who somehow got the idea that we’d offended them. All we did was give them a car, but I’m not here to explain the logic behind their thoughts. Anyway, they had us in the middle of the woods, tied up on the ground along with a stranger who we met right before they captured us. After about an hour of hostage RP, they got word that some third party was tracking them down, and they decided to move their hostages. They untied me first, and I somehow ended up on the outskirts of the circle of people, just standing there as they got ready to move. I looked behind me and saw that they untied my friend, and so I pulled a knife and stabbed the guy next to me a couple of times, before I legged it through the woods. After some running, I took two shots to the torso and started to bleed, but I kept running for another two minutes before they finally got me in the legs. As they approached me, my screen was completely grey, and I was still bleeding. I was less than a minute from death, I’m sure. So, as they approached me and started saying shit like “Why did you do that?” “We could have been friends!”, I got up on my knees, told them to go fuck themselves, and stabbed myself in the throat.

Now, the main point of this is what happened after I ran. When I bolted, all but two of them followed me into the woods, and the two who were left were too confused to keep an eye on my friend. So, my friend legged it in the opposite direction and actually got away, and eventually met the stranger who was with us, who then told him what had happened to his friend (me). Not only did that incident bring some huge changes to his character’s personality, it also affected where his story went from there. This is the kind of shit you should keep in mind when you consider a permadeath.

Another thing to keep in mind, maybe the most important thing, is it the end of a storyline, or the beginning of a new one? You have to consider what kind of potential for RP your permadeath brings. Does it bring potential for further RP with people not in the group? Or does it bring potential for our friends and our group to develop their characters." - Oyface

The group will function on an IC and OOC recruitment basis. Currently, we are seeking people who can RP as 
former Employees of the United States Embassy to Novigrad, Chernarus. For example, we are looking for 
people who can make characters that were either Consular Officers, Economic Officers, Management Officers, 
Political Officers, or Public Diplomacy Officers. Here is a link that lets you go deeper into the subject. 
Here is a link to a quiz that can place you in a career track. 

Send a PM with the following format to either @Joules or @Method.

<3 thanx. Yeah there really isn't much to read as of the lore ATM. But if you know anything about me, you'll know by the end of it all, there will probably be like 12,000 words there or something stupid like that. Like I said at the top, I didn't think it was fair to write out my lore if others haven't had the chance to see the server lore yet.

Danke! If you look hard, you will be able to see Machiavelli's statue, a painting of Cesare Borgia, and the picture of the king from Thomas Hobbes Leviathan in the logo. I like to add little easter eggs that hint to the RP I plan on bringing to the server in the things I do.

Must be nice to be able to plan a group for the lore wipe.

What you see here in the thread is just the bear minimum information that hasn't really changed much from what my original conception of the group was back in 2016 when @DocofPinewood and I came up with the concept. As I also said above, I agree that it ain't fair for me having internal knowledge to be planning out a group extensively, hence why I haven't even touched the lore of my group past what had already been decided before the lore wipe was even a thing. Really, the lore of the group is going to be an adaptation of something I wrote as what was planned as a serial novel, but lazy me decided to stop writing it. The first paragraph is just a rewording of that first paragraph. If you or anyone else has any questions about the lore the LM team is free to help. While we still wouldn't be permitted to give out the whole lore, we can help guide ya in the right direction with group creation.

It sure seems so, considering so many people are doing it even though they have absolutely nothing to do with creating the lore. ;)
