Lawkeepers

gunfighter-academy.regular.png

A group of people from a variety of backgrounds. From Farmers to Hunters, traders to diplomats and even cruise ship workers to retired cops! Brought together by the cohesion, vision and silver tounge of Luke Stem, The Lawkeepers are a beacon of reason in a sea of chaos, a force dedicated to ensuring order is maintained in the lands of South Zagoria.

The inception


The sun had rose to a seemingly average day in post infection Chernarus, the sounds of the moaning dead, screams of the innocent and the silent sobs of long forsaken souls echoed through the near desolate valleys. Luke Stem felt a strange comfort from the sounds, now a reliable constant in his morning routine, this sickened him. However, the state of affairs around him was the last worry on Stem's mind, as his supplies had run low, and his foraging had been for nought ever since the winter months came in. So here he was, forced into but one option... delve into the tight streets of the cities in a bid to keep his stomach full. He sighed at the concept and prepared what little equipment he had left for the perilous journey.

Stem traversed the danger filled street, every step moving him closer to both the supplies he needed, and the potential death traps these cities are rife with that he desperately wished to avoid. A can of beans here, a bag of rice there, it seemed like Luke may survive the winter yet, but this thought was swiftly overwhelemed by an uncontrollable need to wretch at the putrid smell of rotting corpses that littered the long abandoned streets.

But that's when he saw it... inside the police station, a light was escaping a gap between 2 planks of a boarded up window. Curiosity overtook him and, against every fibre of his being telling him to avoid the potential trap, he cautiously made his way to the front doors. As he did his eyes went wide and he could feel the shock induced rush of adrenaline when he saw it, half a dozen infected feasting on the flesh of a man dressed uncomfortably similar to himself... they turned to face him. 

However, even though his instincts told him to run, he surprisingly (even for him) drew his silenced .45, half a mag left at best, and aimed for the zombies rushing for him at speed. Everything went white for  a moment, and Stem was sure it had been the end, he had sweet release from this torturous existence... but then his sight returned and the zombies were all laid inanimate upon the floor. He'd mange to somehow, in a panic induced flurry, hit each of the creatures straight in the centre of their rotting skulls. 

Luke then turned his attention to the body, lying facing away from the armoury, it was likely he'd already looted the place. So Luke hesitantly began rummaging through the dead man's things. A few boxes of ammo, a bandage and.... a book?

In this moment Stem would of usually left, taken these supplies straight back to his camp, however curiosity seemed to be ruling the day. He barricaded the main doors as best he could, sat down against the wall and began reading. It was a journal, of one Jacobi Vaniski, the old commisioner for the Chernarus Police department. Vaniski talked of many things:

-The civil war his people had suffered through

-The slow slog back to prosperity since it's end

-Initiatves put in place to ensure the country's return to greatness

And that's when he saw it: "The Lawkeepers Initiative": A civillian - police force initiative that he was going to propose mere days after the date of the infection's start.

"Desperation within the streets is rising, many are in want of even the most basic of needs, this had lead to violence, riots, petty theft, this initiative would be used to ensure our people are not found wanting of basic sustiance, to better their lives and ensure petty crime does not plague this once great nation"

Luke spent over an hour reading the old man's plan. And he found himself inspired. The parallels between post war Chernarus and the state the country is in now were astounding. Perhaps this dream, this Lawkeepers Initiative, could still do some good. Perhaps Commisioner Vaniski's work wouldn't be in vane.. 

Stem began work almost immediately, using the book as a guide, he finally decided to think past his next meal, and start thinking about the future... 

Luke Stem would create the Lawkeepers. 

 

The set-up

It has been some weeks since luke made his decision, in this time he has been clearing some of the buildings around Chernogorsk and starting to form a plan on how to create this group. He managed to find an old military radio station so will be starting to recruit people to help rebuild the group.

It took many weeks of maticulous planning to get this gargantuan project off the ground, but stem percevered and built a solid foundation on which to build this group. After getting into contact with both John Westby,  a man who shared Luke's vision of the Lawkeepers in spirit even before he knew it existed, and Andrew Washington, a retired cop turned lumberjack in Chernarus, forever indebeted a country that repair his soul as much as he repaired it's infrastructure, Luke had his right hand men at the ready, and their goals in mind. 

They began patrols, and slowly but surely numbers in their ranks began to rise. Now in control over half a dozen men, Luke decided ranking was in order. And so he has since been known as "Commissioner Stem" to his fellow Lawkeepers. 

Through assignments to less stable areas of the country, diplomatic talks with various factions and all in all the word spreading about their organisation, Stem was content in saying the Lawkeepers had a steady foot hold within the region, his sights now turned towards the setting up of permanent infrastructure for the Lawkeepers. 

As the weeks pressed on, Luke , John and Andrew came to the conclusion that pure neutrality was not going to work. One cannot have a rapport with cannibals for god's sake! So it was decided to be made clear to both all members and those who do buisness with the lawkeepers that they were a force of order, not politics. "War" would be a word seldom used with righteous zeal within the Lawkeepers, but neither would the concept of "Rolling over and taking shit" be acceptable behaviour either. 

They would keep the peace within the region of Chernarus, but they would not do so through words alone. If worst came to worst, shots would be fired, and the deaths of few would ensure the lives of many. 

Along with this , if factions began to form within the country, borders , god forbid even "empires"... then the Lawkeepers would not only uphold order, but the laws of whatever land they happen to be residing within, to ensure peace is constant regardless of what "province" one happens to be in. Morality being but a byproduct of who laid claim to the land. 

So it was the main mantra of the Lawkeepers was formed.

Commissioner - The Leader and Community representative, Commissioners are veterans of the good fight in all respects, being able to hold his own in a firefight just as easily as he is able to hold his own round a negotiation table. Both the leader of his group, the motivation behind the group's actions, but also a symbol of a better tomorrow, whom must also be able to invoke that symbol, that hope, in the civilians and the various other groups around Chernarus, in the hopes that they will join the fight for peace and order. Commissioners are the reason the Lawkeepers are ,and always will be, more than just another group. The Commissioners also oversees all trails that happen under the Lawkeepers Name.

Marshal The role of the marshal is to be second in command while the commissioner is away on other matters. They are also master of agents, going from town to town where Lawkeepers are currently on assignment and ensuring they are upholding the values of the organsiaiton, along with aiding in any endeavours that require more than one Lawkeeper present. 


Enforcers - Carry out the punishments or do the will of the governing body. A role with great responsibility, but also risk. It would be up to those in this role to take full responsibility for their actions under the rule of a governing body... if other groups or people find displeasement with the Enforcer's actions in the name of said governing bodies, it would be their responsibility to take blame, as such sparing the group from retaliation of the in-content masses 

Lawkeepers - The main part of the group, trained in simple tactics and first aid, the Lawkeepers are the work horse of the group. After weeks of training under the Commissioner guidance, the recruit will finally be given this title, but only after they have passed the tests set by the Commissioner and his right hand men.  

Recruits - Recruits are those individuals who have heard the call of the Lawkeepers, and have decided to answer it. After meeting with the Commissioner they will be given a Lawkeeper to shadow and begin the extensive training needed to become a fully fledged Lawkeeper. Through their motivation, passion to do the will that is needed they are put through gruelling sets of tasks and missions, to prove their worth both in the fields of battle and in the eyes of the civilians they have now sworn to protect.

The Lawkeepers have a set of laws which they must follow in order to withhold the ideals from which the group was created, they are the following:

1: Do no harm to those who wish no harm to you if it has no purpose

2: Aid those in need when you are in a position to do so

3: Violence is a tool to be used as last resort, not to be abused as an initial solution to problems

4: Understand the suffering of a few to ensure the peace and security of the many is sometimes necessary. 

5: Ensure no political bias towards any in this country, we are here for order, not for political power.

6: Chernarus provides for you, keeps you warm, keeps you fed, provide for it in kind as if it was your homeland. Do not abuse her majesty.

Patrols: The Lawkeepers aim to perform weekly patrols, using nature paths to traverse to significant locations around the country (Major Cities, Settlements, Outposts etc etc). They will be well supplied to deal with situations both minor (Medical aid, Food, Water) and Major (Missing Persons, Robberies, Diplomatic disagreements between groups), if a Lawkeeper patrol is in town, you know you'll have a reliable extra pair of hands around!

Assignments: When not on Patrol, The Lawkeepers are given Assignments by the Commisoner + his right hand men. These assignments can be as simple as "Keep watch over the town of X for the week" to something more hands on as "Investigate the disappearance of X person" and can even be diplomatic in nature such as "Establish liaison relations with X group". This is to both get our name known around the country and ensure Lawkeepers have things to do when their fellow members are not currently available.
