The story begins with a party cruise that left the harbors of Istanbul, Turkey.

The Riptide was a large Karışık durum, also known as a luxurious yacht, spanning about 80 meters in length. It was owned by a premier entertainment company that boasts lively elite parties for A-list celebrities and their friends. This particular party cruise was headed for Batumi, Georgia, departing its port on the evening of July 11th. Supposedly a one-week excursion through the Black Sea along the coast of Turkey, the cruise never made it to its destination. About one day into the journey, the ship was only halfway to its intended port when reports of the initial outbreak occurred. Unfortunately, while things on land progressively worsened, the fate of the yacht was no different.

Before the ship departed its harbor, there were a few people who unwittingly were exposed to the infection in Istanbul. The first was a woman who boarded the ship with little to no symptoms but within twenty hours, she would cause almost all of the people on board to become infected. Onboard, she would hook up with a man, who later shared a drink with another woman, who would kiss another and so on. Between quick hookups, making out, snorting cocaine and sharing drinks, it quickly manifested in many.

Throughout the night, party-goers were retiring to their cabins due to sudden headaches and nausea. They would lock themselves in and while hidden away they would crop up with rashes and ocular bleeding, as well as coughing up blood. In the late hours of the evening, the infection would take complete hold of its host. Those who were unlucky enough to have come in contact would become ravenous and aggressive. Their behavior reminiscent of rabid animals. Some of these infected were released from their key-locked rooms accidentally and began attacking all those within sight. Those who were fast enough to lock themselves in some other rooms were spared, while others who were caught off guard were quickly ripped apart and devoured.

While most of the ship’s crew and passengers were hiding away and being picked off one by one, others decided it was time to fight back. They began to hunt down and kill those who looked infected or too injured to live. After a three hour fight, in the wee hours of the morning, the ship had been recovered. Those onboard were not infected, and the dead had been thrown overboard.

They discussed their options and found that there were few. They could take the ship to shore and find help, but there needed to be some repairs first, according to the captain. Some of those rabid people fell into the rotor propellers. Few dared say that dreaded z-word. What if there were more? How long could they last without more supplies? They would need to fix their radio for sure. One by one, they had been delegated their duties by one person who seemed to place himself in the lead and rightfully so. Garrett Mercer took on the mantle. He was headstrong, dominant and intelligent enough to assign duties where they need be assigned. Those around fell in line easily.

After a short while, the radio had been fixed and broadcasts in broken English and Chernarussian were being picked up. They spoke of quarantines, aggressive attacks from ‘rabid’ and ‘infected’ human beings. They were speculating this was an act of biological warfare. Someone wanted Chernarussia to suffer a great loss. They spoke of ground zero and mentioned the source of the infection. That was what they had gathered based on the chatter from civilian and possible Military radio carriers. Their decision was made. They would hold out until the radio chatter stopped mentions of hostility or their food and water ran out. Sadly, it was the latter.

After some time consulting one another, they figured out how to pilot the ship as best they could. It was slow going at first, but they learned quickly. Cutting across the Black Sea to the Green Sea, they found themselves in sight of a jetty. What they first thought to be thunder in the distance soon became an ominous expression of the loss of civilization and modern man. As the fog cleared and land became a bit more visible, the early evening of the 18th, the sky was alight with explosions. The sounds were distant but audible as the air rumbled angrily around them. All they could do was watch in horror as what they imagined to be hundreds and thousands of innocent lives were turned to cinders and ash. They couldn’t dock now. Really they couldn’t move the boat or risk becoming a target themselves. Instead, they stay put, keeping an eye on things from a good, safe distance.

Eventually, they explosions did stop. The Riptide landed somewhere along the coast of South Zagoria on the morning of July 19th. Within moments they realized that the world as they thought they knew it was over. The beach was empty, at first, but the sound of their poorly ported ship hitting a sandbar and becoming stranded seemed to be pulling the infected from the treelines just as the survivors disembarked and ended up in the waters off the shore. Soon they were being attacked again. A few more of the group of a dozen or so were taken and destroyed by the rabid monsters.

The rest of the passengers of the Riptide fought or fled, but as they pressed inland, they found cars strewn over the roads. There were puddles of dried blood and scattered body parts. There was a broken sort of silence. Flies, crows, and rats dotted carcasses as the carcasses dotted the landscape. It was carnage. Still, they pressed on. Eventually, they escaped the smell of the rotting flesh and the sound of the infected and random gunfire in the distance. Finally, they found silence and solace in the trees somewhere deep in the wood of South Zagoria. They needed to find food, water and a safe place to sleep now that the boat was unsafe. Where would they go now?

Shortly after the ship has left everyone stranded, there seemed to be no refuge in sight. The remaining human survivors of the crash made their way into Berezino and gathered at the school. There, they weighed options about where they could go and who they would take with them. They decided to stick together and make their way inland to find supplies and maybe others. They encountered more infected, careful not to rouse their senses, they snuck around. They went inward toward Kabinino. There, they were told, was a military safe house conducted by the CDF, UN as well as the WHO. While there, they ran into many survivors much like themselves, stranded, alone and without aid.

It was there too, that they first encountered the VDV. Russian Militants sporting red berets and thick accents. There they imposed their own laws while CDF, NATO, UN and WHO stood by and allowed the bullying of the new-citizens of Chernarus. The group decided it was best that they leave and build a home elsewhere until the promised evacuation was delivered by NATO, The UN and WHO. While in this camp, it came to light that one of the survivors was doing some illicit drug selling and gun smuggling. While he ran, his girlfriend was arrested under suspicion of aiding him in the smuggling. The VDV took her to an airfield where they kept her locked away.

She was beaten, tortured and released to deliver a message. The man, Garrett would be found and put the trial. The VDV were hunting him down and would continue to bully the group until he was found. Meanwhile, the camp was shut down and they were forced to leave the camp to go back to Kabanino where they were forced to remain. She has been stabbed in the hand, her ribs broken and her face cut and bruised. She refused to tell anyone what had happened, but whenever the VDV were present she seemed to cower. While her wounds were being treated she was under round the clock watch by the Russians.

Luckily for the group, there was a doctor, working with the UN, who rescued and smuggled them out of the Kabanino camp. Brackett took them away to Altar radio tower. The other half of the group that had not been captured met with Taryn, Brackett, and his friend and took Taryn off of his hands. After they were rescued, it came to light that a member of the group, and older man named Rysen, had told the VDV that Garrett’s girlfriend Taryn was involved with the smuggling though it was known that she wasn’t. He had done this out of spite for Garrett and wanted to teach him a lesson by putting the young girl in danger. He hadn’t know, however, that she would be tortured. That night, at Devil’s castle summer camp, a fight broke out and Rysen was tied up along with John, a reporter.

In anger, Garrett executed the old man, in front of the entire group to make an example. For the entirety of the group, it was the first time they had seem someone executed, but wouldn’t the last. He made sure they knew this too would happen to them if they messed with him or the rest of his people. In fear, Taryn sent Garrett away and they hunkered down at the Devil’s castle summer camp. Days Later, the VDV came and stole Taryn away again. This time because they could not find Garrett and because they had run from Kabinino. Their new camp was smack on the border of their new quarantine. They told taryn the only way she could keep the camp and help civilians as she had been doing, was to give them information as it was given to her.

She agreed to be an informant to save her people and keep them safe. That wasn’t enough however. Ermak, then the station leader of the VDV present in the country, took Taryn in the night and used her as bait to lure out Garrett. Garrett showed up for his trial… for the Murder of Rysen, for smuggling and abetting, and for contraband. He was put to death by firing squad while Taryn watched on. While distressed and emotionally ruined, they returned her again to kabanino where she refused to tell her friends what had happened. Instead, in a cold and proud voice, the news was delivered by the VDV: Garrett had been brought to justice.

The next few days were a blur to the group. There wasn’t enough words to explain the pain, betrayal and painful silences that followed. Oliver, the group’s youngest member, had found himself with the responsibility of keeping the group in line, along with Samia, Winston and Joey.

The group continued to feed information to the VDV in exchange for the allowance of keeping their camp. Ermak and his men would stop by frequently to ‘check’ on them. People of all types would stop by to get needed items, eat, drink and be on their way. It wasn’t long before the quiet was broken. While some uneasiness had caused the VDV to withdraw, a member or two remained in the country, hiding with the survivors at their camp. They had become criminals of desertion. One of them, Anton, had recently come into Taryn’s view as a potential lover. This caused upheaval within the ranks of the survivors. They couldn’t trust an ex-VDV member, let alone one of which who was personally there and had helped to torture Taryn. She reassured them and begged they give him a chance.

As this was happening, a power vacuum caused many small groups that wanted a foothold to rise and begin bullying those around them. One of which, came to the camp and demanded 60% of the profits of the camp. The group tried to explain that there were no ‘profits’ and that the camp was a charity, to which they were told that they then would have no problem giving them everything. They were told the camp no longer belonged to them.

Anton, Winston, Joey, and others stood their ground and a firefight broke out. Winston was killed. Joey, John, Anton were severely injured and they lost the camp. Defeated, they retreated to Severograd. They buried Winston there. They then moved further north to a small town called Nagornoe, where they made their home to prepare for winter. Anton has talked the rest into taking up mercenary work amongst other thing to prepare for the winter. They needed hundreds of cans of food. On top of this, just before the camp was taken, it had been announced that Taryn was pregnant.

They worked hard, stealing, working, robbing people. They were having a hard time making ends meet. It wasn’t until an unlikely set of friends made themselves available to the group that they got the help they needed. They went by the Gremlins, and at the time Brackett had become a member. He offered to help them, provide food and make their work a little easier. Meanwhile, Anton left to work with their members and promised to return with some much needed food and relief supplies. To this day, he still hasn’t returned.

After he disappeared, with Joey out of work, and Taryn newly miscarried as well as the recent heat rising from warring groups: Taryn and Samia retreated to the woods. They lived alone for some time before they eventually were split up due to unforeseen troubles.

Taryn would suffer an unfortunate fate, brought on by terrible circumstances. 
A man named Borris would pick up her torch to lead the group, hoping to carry on Taryns values.
Borris now attempts to pick up the pieces and keep the group together.

We've come to the decision. The dreaded decision that your group is to be...

accepted.

giphy.gif

We aren't going to hold back your group based on the following, but we would like to see more in the way of your group goals

Number 1 and 3 are very generic. Like I said, we aren't holding you back because of it, but we would be tickled to see some more goals. Then again, due to the lore being so new, group goals won't be as unique, but in the future when you update your group goals, keep this feedback in mind.
