    Oh my, I'm only seeing this now... Holy shit am I boiling inside. How low has the standard of RP fallen? How can this be seen as anywhere remotely acceptable? THIS IS NOT MADMAX OR SAW MOVIE. WE ARE IN CHERNARUS, 2 YEARS INTO A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. YOU DON'T TAKE RANDOM PEOPLE AS HOSTAGES, BRAND THEM AS SLAVES, MAKE THEM SING SONGS, KILL THEM IF THEY REFUSE AND THEN RELEASE THEM LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, HOW IS THAT NOT BADRP?! Compliance rule is for hostages who do not comply to orders that are reasonable considering the situation. Specifically the rule is there so that as a hostage taker you may use lethal force should the hostage attempt to escape, pick up a weapon or other action that may be a threat to you or your group. It is definitely NOT intended to allow you to kill hostages because you made a demand for them to sing, jump on one leg while juggling or recite japanese poems and they refuse. Killing someone for not singing. That doesn't make any fucking sense at all in the game or lore you are in. What were you thinking? No, you cannot. You may not give unreasonable demands to hostages. They are your hostages, not personal play toys where you can humiliate the character / person behind it. If you're taking someone hostage, you MUST have some kind of reason for it that makes sense IC. You don't take a random person you found hostage to play life or death games with them. I don't care if your character is a psycho, mass murderer or a disturbed individual, it's bad RP. I've watched the video and it is sickening how low the bar has fallen and that this kind of RP is now days deemed acceptable, even worse that it was deemed OK by the staff team who signed this verdict. All I hear and see in the video is your group fucking around playing musical contest and giggling like little girls as if you're playing Second Life and not DayZ and you're forcing people to humiliate themselves for your own enjoyment because if not you will kill their character. That's post apocalyptic zombie role play where your characters are fighting for survival? Is this what hostile role play has been reduced to, robbing and making random bystanders sing songs for no apparent reason? Jesus fucking christ, last time it was that bad it was in May 2013 when all 12 year olds joined to play on no-KoS server and wanted to be bad asses. I won't be issuing any punishments to any of the people here this time, but for fucks sake, step up your game cause this shit that you've just shown in that situation is ridiculous. You're playing DayZRP, not Chernarus Life, ACT LIKE IT. /endrant

    Good evening Gentleman, I'm Fran Miller, the Boom stick's Spanish Guy according to Lord Aristocrat's accurate description.(as follows): "Whilst the PAU are bandaging their wounded, Fran the Spanish stallion takes out his boom stick and starts blasting away at the remaining hostage takers. He succeeds in killing three but is soundly defeated by the fourth. Tragically" I've made a comic of the story, I hope you enjoy. And I will be making a video fur sure, but with all the art I can...You can check other videos of mine in the youtube Channel Click storms...look for "Sammy" which is an episode with english subs...I've recently uploaded another one called "Ring of fire" but I didnt put the english subtitles yet so my comments are in spanish... I also going to describe my part of the story as this event has been our particular Red Wedding and should have an important episode either in the current Lore or in the next one. 0) I have to say, first of all that I'm so happy of the community, I think the mass mayority of you are excelent roleplayers, either the bandits and the Hostages. Specially the small version of Mr Chow that for a second I even thought it was indeed Mr Chow. 1) I'm inside the church really chilled, enjoying the music and the company, I'm not part of any group as the only person I previously known was Dr Elisabeth, who luckly for her, went to sleep before the blood bath. 2) I go outside to the door to Smoke a cigarrete and talk with the guards of the door when I see a really doggie North Korean Style offficial talking agressively to the guard and In the background some shots are starting to get deployed. 3) Knowing what was coming I rapidly take out my M4 with 60 bullets and a lot of spec ops expirience acumulated through my life, I've been in worse situations but...I take a look of the good people inside, all with their hands up and I decided they are not fighters, they are just normal nice people...I cant risk them...Damm, I put my hands up... 4) All in a circle, some pyscho bandits start to circle around and at the same time the outside guard I just been talking got murdered but this people...he was a good boy...RIP. The tension is increccendo, and the boyfriend of the girld of my right starts to become extremelly paranoid and stress...hyperventilating, he mange to pull out his gun and shoot...there is a cross fire, actually I think the bandits do a hell of a blue on blue expirience (friendly fire)... //The desync doesn't allow me to recognize the situation, I thought someone else has come through the back door and whipe out some bandits...otherwise, I have to say, I problably would have been decided not to take action, as the bandit roleplay was excellent, I have to admit, so for my contribution to the massacre, I'm sorry.../// 5) All that is left is few guards injured and bandiging themselves...and we are a lot of good people...I have a quick look to the girl on my left and told her everything will be ok...(The last words she'll ever listen out of anyone else...RIP)...they are scared as hell and The rest of the bandits are seriusly nervous and agressive...You can smell something terrible can happend...but winners anticipate: I have a quick look and take an account, there are 4 guards, 3 on my side of the room, seriously injured and one bastard with an akm with a 75 bullets drum...I cant risk to take action as the guy in the opossite side of the room could kill at least 5 people trying to reach me and I can't allow this to happend... But! Surprise! He put his gun on the floor and start's bandaging...It is the moment, I try to act fast but with precision...I succesfully take out the easier guy, turn around and kill a guillie that was just on my back...and then recieve some inaccurate shotts from another bandit next to the front door...I make use of my Army expirienced mussle memory and whipe him ass well...but damm...the 4rth guy is almost ready to shoot and has crouch to avoid killing inocents...I turn my gun as a Surgeon, and aim carefully to not kill inocents...but this manuver takes me time enought to let the bastard shoot first...I starting to recieve 7,62 impacts on my chest...I'm falling but still shooting...I think I manage to hit him once or twice but I breath gets interrupted...the last think I see is one of the Knight-Cowbows deploy his magnum and shoot the fucker in the face screaming "Bastard"...I know Im dying...my last thougth is about Samantha...my last valuable recent memory...I'm happy she is not here...I'm going with you Jonnhy (cash). Thanks to all and sorry if my action was shit...But adrenaline pumps out....and you never know...So many armed hostages for so few bandits...That's a thing to consider ass well. PS - I have to say that the guy that was "lagging" did not make a good action...as make a clear use of metagaming...which was interrupting the role flow because a supose technical problem, but desync was quite big...so you never know...

Epilogue “In an urban society, everything connects. Each person's needs are fed by the skills of many others. Our lives are woven together in a fabric. But the connections that make society strong also make it vulnerable.” - Threads, 1984 Not a soul could have possibly fathomed that a victorious Chernarus would ultimately sign the death warrant of all civilization. The world would appear dumbfounded as the work of rebuilding a broken country would eventually crumble. The peace that was achieved, was really what doomed us all. Nobody thought something like this could happen, the stuff of movies and TV shows. And in the off chance that something catastrophic did occur most people trusted the authorities and government to do the right thing and protect their citizens. The connectivity of a modern globalized society had led humanity like lambs into a forest full of wolves. We assumed the best and did not pay attention to what was actually happening. Ignorant, self-absorbed people who knew everything and yet understood nothing. Those observant individuals that saw it coming were too few and were disregarded and branded as conspiracy theorists and nerds. What they saw coming was not the plague itself, but how humanity’s illogical handling of a logical crisis would ultimately doom it to near-extinction. Global chaos that has been seen in the past will not compare to what will be seen in the coming days…or after those days had passed. Chernarus had made great strides in rebuilding since the conclusion of the bloody 2009 civil war and was on route to becoming something of a power in the region. Foreign investment in the Chernarussian coal, mining, gas, and agriculture industries had swelled the workforce and created many jobs in remote places where none before existed. South Zagoria was still a poor recovering province, the recovery period had ended, and revitalization efforts were planned to revamp the area. Tourism had picked up as a result of the war, Chernarus got its name in the international headlines and people who didn’t know the country existed before 2009 became aware of it. While Chernarus had not officially joined NATO for fear of losing national sovereignty, it did agree to host several bases within Chernarus. International Airports were expanded, allowing international flights heading to Asia or back to Western Europe to stop and refuel at a central place without having to fly to Dubai for a connecting flight. In the wake of the civil war, NAPA was disbanded by leader Josef Prizak, and most of its members joined the CDF and accepted general amnesty from the government. The Chedaki were hunted down viciously by the State, capturing all of its leadership that was not apprehended or killed during the civil war and put them on trial, many being executed for the genocide, insurrection, and murder conducted during the war. Despite Chernarussian-Russian relations being quite amicable immediately following the civil war, tensions would again rise to a boiling point between the two countries. Even with the election of a popular center-right statist nationalist party and a booming economy, military escalation was a frequent occurrence on the northern border. A marriage between a Chernarussian woman and a Russian man was attacked by right sector Chernarussian extremists in late April 2017. Following this event, protests, political demonstrations, calls for secession of ethnic Russian territories such as northern South Zagoria and Belozersk and ultimately violence led the State to declare martial law in South Zagoria on May 3rd, 2017. The province was gripped with fear and tension, and some citizens left to go to western areas that were considered to be safe, their belongings and vehicles left behind to rot for fear of another civil war. However, the attention of the world was focused elsewhere and not on the developing situation in Chernarus. It all began with seemingly benign activity at an old storage base north of Severograd, the easternmost base in a chain of facilities that stretched west along the Black Mountains. After the fall of the USSR and Chernarussian independence, the base was handed over to the fledgling CDF (Chernarussian Defense Force), and any memory of the base and its activities were forgotten. The sites were sealed to the public during Soviet times, and the local populace knew little of the activities of these bases. Whatever the Soviets were doing here was done in isolation, and rumors permeated through the region as to the origins of the operation, as it seemed as if the base had been there for an eternity. On the 7th of July CDF troops were sent to the base where they established a series of checkpoints on surrounding roads, stopping all foot or vehicle traffic and turning it back. Foot patrols began to move through the woods around the base in an attempt to make up for the abysmal condition of the base’s perimeter fences. A video filmed of a Russian helicopter flying into the base was posted on Twitter the same night, igniting a controversy. The following day the residents of Kamensk and Nagornoe were rounded up, those from Nagornoe were escorted south to Severograd and housed in the local school without any explanation as to the reason of their relocation other than their “personal safety”. The civilians from Kamensk who were the main witnesses to the whole incident disappeared completely, the most common rumor being that they had been held inside the base itself. National outrage ensued, and in the meantime, events escalated considerably around midnight, when an apparent disagreement between the two sides of the base resulted in the departure of the Russians back across the border. In the early hours of the 10th, the Russian air force completely annihilated the storage base that was the source of the whole controversy, leaving only a couple buildings standing and fifty dead Chernarussian personnel within the base. In response, Chernarussian jets from the Vybor Airbase raided Russian border posts starting a back and forth between each military. Chernarus awoke to a war in South Zagoria as national demonstrations and outbursts of violence occurred in the morning. Severograd began experiencing attacks from several soldiers that appeared to be rabid and unresponsive, the soldiers having emanated from the base. Many were severely burned or partially dismembered, and yet did not seem to care or respond with pain to their injuries. The first call came in from a farm north of the city, reporting three soldiers staggering out of the forest biting and attacking livestock. The station lost contact with the patrol sent to check on the farm. To make matters worse, following the bombing of the base and the subsequent dispersal of CDF troops in the area, Russian artillery launched an all-out bombardment of Kamensk, Nagornoe, and Severograd countryside. A man in Severograd who was interviewed by a local news station in Novodmitrovsk said the following about that morning: “The Russian bombardment was a distraction from whatever went on in the base that night. They had some stake in the course of events there after all the bombardment did little damage to any civilian or military structure. The goal was to distract the international press for as long as possible.” The Russian ploy worked according to plan, as the international news was fixed on the fighting and the armed confrontations and not on the strange attacks taking place near the site of the bombing. In the afternoon a wave of infected hit Severograd from the north, overwhelming the police the already packed hospital. Many of the people brought into the hospital were bleeding from the eyes, and had developed rashes similar to poison oak that secreted a clear fluid. On the 11th the north awoke to terror in the streets as those exposed to the virus on the previous day had turned. The authorities were completely caught off guard, as the few police officers on duty were not nearly sufficient to respond to phone calls coming in from their precincts. In the north-east towns around it were almost completely devoid of any military presence, putting them in a poor position to contain what was occurring. The virus was estimated to have a 6 hour incubation period, and that the average person would begin to attack non infected individuals 16 hours post exposure. Notably, within the first 6 hours of infection, coughing and sneezing were the most prevalent side effect. Any concentration of sick individuals seemed to focus the virus, making going into a hospital a near death sentence, especially with their patients so late into the stages of infection. On the 12th people in Turovo began to flee en mass causing a massive traffic jam and chaos as infected began to attack trapped drivers while soldiers at the checkpoint desperately attempted to assist. To combat the spreading chaos two battalions of CDF troops from Miroslavl arrived in South Zagoria and assembled in the Chernogorsk area, manning an extensive string of checkpoints, military camps, and refugee safe zones, the former built during the period of martial law. Local units were mustered and deployed to checkpoints and military bases, and all military operations in the province were directed from the Balota airfield. The turmoil in the north east spilled into Berezino and Solnichniy, as infected spread into the two towns, sending a wave of refugees down the coastal road as the pandemonium on the eastern coast escalated. Luckily most refugees stopped at Elektrozavodsk and camped out on the eastern and western shore of the city. The situation worsened near Vybor, as the airbase was rushed by infected at the northern and eastern perimeter. A swarm of CAF (Chernarussian Air Force) aircraft conducted strikes all day trying to halt the takeover of the base, but the bombing, rocket, and strafing runs only attracted more infected to the base. By this time the much of western Chernarus had major outbreaks, many spurring from refugees fleeing west from South Zagoria. Even before proper border control actions could be taken many tourists and Chernarussian citizens had fled the country by air via the Novigrad and Miroslavl International Airports to Europe, and the Balkans, triggering outbreaks in those areas. Russia moved to close the border with Chernarus off completely, and Takistan shut down its border, boxing Chernarus in. Meanwhile, in Elektrozavodsk a flotilla of privately owned boats and military vessels from Miroslavl and ports further south had sailed up the coast to attempt a mass exodus of the city, which was largely successful in leaving only a couple dozen civilians and CDF who stayed in the city. Unfortunately, this noble effort only served to move the outbreak to Miroslavl where the docks were overwhelmed with infected and refugees fresh off the boats, as the CDF had not set up a virus screening area for incoming refugees. The only major cities left in South Zagoria by then were Chernogorsk, Elektrozavodsk, and Zelenogorsk along with a handful of towns north of the coast. On the 17th, the CDF was struggling to hold onto South Zagoria with developing outbreaks in other areas in Chernarus bleeding dry reserves, meaning that South Zagoria could expect no further reinforcement as units further west were busy containing the epidemic near their bases, consequently it was on this day that help from abroad finally arrived in earnest. 200 UN peacekeepers and some 300 doctors and researchers were sent to Miroslavl where a large research center was established. A detachment of 100 were quickly dispatched to Chapaevsk where a base was created for treatment and research. A massive NATO fleet arrived off the coast of Chernarus, having been underway to the Green Sea since earlier in the week, joining an existing flotilla of NATO ships that had begun to assemble during the previous months of unrest. Now the fleet's goal was securing ground zero and preventing the loss of crucial NATO bases in the area. The Russian Black Sea fleet was waiting for the arriving ships, and had also been slowly deploying ships to the area as NATO had. NATO operations on July 17th focus mainly on reinforcing CDF troops in South Zagoria, deploying troops from its Kirovograd base to combat outbreaks in the city itself. Mostly US troops from the Utes garrison are deployed to South Zagoria, US Army troops dispatched to Chernogorsk and US Marines to the Elektrozavodsk area. Russian strikes mostly target border areas close to home, while NATO flies directly in support of the CDF and its forces on the ground. The fighting prior to the epidemic was put on the backburner in favor of each side defending its interests, Chernarus and Russia agree to a cessation of hostilities as the Outbreak worsened. The bombing carried into the 19th, and the CDF and NATO defense line began to falter, falling late in the morning sending a wave of infected towards Chernogorsk as US forces retreated from the city amid the infected and severe riots. By the afternoon Zelenogorsk was completely cut off, and the CDF forces within the city eventually withdrew to the countryside to ride out the crisis and refused to abandon the province completely. That night Chernogorsk was set ablaze, with many civilians ransacking stores of what supplies they had left while others locked up in apartments and partied late into the night. Around midnight the downtown International Hotel was struck by a cargo plane carrying relief supplies that had veered off course, killing all on board. By daybreak on the 20th, Chernogorsk was in shambles as CAF helicopters continued to search for refugees in areas deemed to have been lost and were often seen flying at telephone pole height for maximum visibility. The second wave of NATO, Russian, and CDF bombing began shortly after noon, spreading the infected westwards into the north Miroslavl province as they followed the bombing and fleeing people. On the 21st, the remainders of civilization within South Zagoria either gave up or were overwhelmed. Many civilians who had not already left or been evacuated fled to the Vavilovo and Kamenka checkpoints, bottlenecking the road and making it impossible for any vehicles to leave along the main highways headed into Miroslavl province. Thousands of foreigners trapped in airports across the country began to depart as their CDF guards left, hoping to find refuge elsewhere after being detained inside the airport for a week. Most of western Chernarus was in chaos, with only coastal cities being secured while the countryside was either bombed or fought over as the CDF slowly began to withdraw leaving many rural areas to fend for themselves. At night a massive storm erupted across the entire region with tumultuous seas and raging winds. Only adding to the catastrophe, a cruise ship, the Costa Risacca, carrying some 3,000 passengers, struck a rock formation during the gale and went down several miles off the coast of South Zagoria. The ship sank to the bottom, leaving those who hadn't gone down with the ship or drowned to try and bring their lifeboats ashore. A large cargo ship was forced into Chernarussian waters by the storm. Instead of risking life and limb, the crew chose to beach the ship. The storm raged into early hours of 24th, and by morning, Chernarus was eerily quiet. Novigrad, Primorsk, and Miroslavl prepared for the worst. Russia moved in and enforced a no-fly zone over South Zagoria. After two weeks, the majority of Chernarus was a desolate burnt-out shadow of its former self. By the conclusion of week two, Ukraine and Turkey were suffering from a total societal breakdown, and many areas across Europe, Asia, and the Americas were containing major outbreaks in and around transportation hubs. So it was, the decline of humanity was insured by the failures of our own arrogance. While our globalized society connected people in ways unfathomable to our ancestors, it also revealed a vital flaw in our very being. As a result of our interconnectivity, the infection was able to travel far and wide before anyone was able to throw the alarm. From Tokyo to Paris, Anchorage to Buenos Aires, the infected walked among us and war raged. Our nature of abstract blindness made us weak and vulnerable, and thus we suffered. Even what was occurring in one's own country was secondary to the drama unfolding right in their own neighborhoods. Similar stories would play out within nearly every country and continent on earth, all with one inevitable final climax. After a month, the remains of a global society was crucified on the graves of those who built it. However, resistance to the virus and its after effects remained as entire nations attempted to eradicate the threat in the midst, the winners and losers of this titanic clash yet to be determined. Credit to Majoo for headers.

    Link to the situation: Multiple things 1: General attitude 2: Heavy-handedness/overly strict Feedback: 1. Your general attitude and behavior as of late shows you to be out of touch with what is actually occurring on the server and in the community, and shows that you've made very irrational decisions recently as well as in the past. The first link shows that you don't understand what is actually happening on the server, which is very troublesome as you are doing things that are meant to restrict and constrain hostile RP. However, because most of the server is peaceful if not neutral, you're really just fucking over the minority of people who do play as hostile characters and bandits. Yes, this is your community and your server, but when you put forth suggestions, rule changes, etc or just make changes (especially some that have drastic effects on the RP and gameplay) without taking into account what your staff team says or what the community thinks about the idea, you are going to piss off a lot of people and push a lot of people away from the community. With our current population, this is something that cannot happen. The more people you piss off and push away, the less revenue the site has, the standard of RP lowers, and the server numbers continue to get lower. If you this community is to survive, we need to attract new players and keep our current ones. This community could not handle another tendy-wave of the same size as the first one. The second link has you saying the following "I am primarily thinking of some PvPers initiating on everyone and destroying the event". This shows that you are extremely negative against banditry or people who happen to get into PVP more than others. You believe that hostile RP would ruin everything and destroy it all, when in fact it could potentially create some interesting RP. Of course, you'd never know that because you avoid any and all hostile RP (even the potential for hostile RP) that comes your way. Hostile/bandit RP is still RP. PVP can be a byproduct of that. Nobody is ever forced into PVP. If they get initiated on, and don't comply, their death is their fault. Their life is in their own hands, unless a mistake or a rulebreak occurs. The fact that you're severely restricting hostile RP just because you don't like it, and just because you think it's a majority of the server is very worrying. If you want people to have fun in your community, you need to cater to more than just one type of RP. Thirdly, your replies on this status update also show that you have a terrible attitude towards certain playstyles and groups of people within the community. I will go more in depth on your replies and behavior in the status update and the circumstances surrounding the status update in my next bit of feedback, but for this part, I will focus on the following quote: "I am tired of that PvP banter shit that's going on currently and people treating rule 5.1 like a fucking joke". Nobody is treating rule 5.1 as a joke, as you suggest they are. This gives off the idea that you are extremely against any and all PVP. Again, nobody is forced into PVP unless a rulebreak occurs. The issue of people solely seeking out PVP is no longer as big as you think it is. The people who have abused the rules have been dealt with. You can relax with your persecution of anybody titled a PVPer now. Lastly, and I have no links for this, but people have been denied staff positions simply because of who they are friends with. I could understand if the person who was denied has shown to have a terrible attitude towards others, posts flamey or inappropriate things constantly, or any other negative things like those, but to deny someone simply because of who they are friends with is terrible. It once again shows that you have some sort of hate or focused negativity for a certain group of people. As the leader of a community, I would think that you'd want to be welcoming to everybody and remain at the very least neutral with active members of your community. Obviously you're human and have your own emotions and own opinions, but if you expect others in your community to behave well and be positive members in the community, perhaps it would be a good idea to follow the same guidelines you enforce on the members of your community. Nobody likes a hypocrite. 2. The first link of the second spoiler above shows the situation in which you permanently banned someone over them saying that they understood that what they did was a rulebreak. I understand that he did have a bit of an attitude, but permanently banning someone over some things that are so miniscule is way too heavyhanded. I did not agree with that at the time, and I still do not agree with that action. Giving them 5-10 warning points would have sufficed better, and it would have ensured that we didn't unnecessarily lose someone/multiple others from the community for something so small. The above link shows that their is a history of this behavior. The second link happened yesterday, and shows the situation in which you revoked the whitelist of someone for posting a literally harmless joke in an offtopic thread. @Boston Basher posted the following: "PVP > RP". This was posted in a thread titled "Unpopular opinions". Seeing as how the thread was in the offtopic section, the standards for warnings in that section is more lax. Likewise, other posts in the thread were humorous and clearly jokes. Posting a joke about enjoying PVP over RP was on the same level as the previous posts in the thread. Even if the statement was a fully serious one, stating that you enjoy PVP more than RP, revoking somebody's whitelist over that is so tyrannical and stupid that it is dumbfounding. The following links (1, 2, 3) show you taking it completely seriously and massively blowing things out of proportion. I know for a fact that what he said was no worth any sort of punishment. If anybody else but you had looked at the post, the same outcome would not have occurred. These are just some of the examples of you blowing things out of proportion or responding in disproportionate ways. I already stated above that the more things you do to piss off members in your community, the more it hurts the community and the worse it will be. You need to be careful with your actions and behavior, or else another chicken tendy wave WILL happen again. The whole tendy wave began after Echo received arguably unjustified points for a picture of a chicken nugget that was in the shape of a penis. Of course, some of the behaviors he showed along with his friends afterwards were not appropriate, however, that is not the point. Giving out unjust warnings and permabanning people for bullshit reasons will piss off a lot of people, and rightfully so. Nobody likes to feel like they were wronged, and when it happens multiple times, or it's shown that it happens many times to other people that they care about, they're going to react in terrible ways. Unless you want another tendy wave to happen, please follow my suggestions below. Suggestions for improvement: Take a backseat when it comes to running the community. Take care of everything else outside of implementing and enforcing rules, and allow the many staff members that have been recruited for the sole purpose of running the community for you, do their job. Everybody panics when you say "I got this". That is not a good sign. That shows that you are unpredictable and have a short fuse. Your actions are hurting the community, but you don't seem to realize that. The community is better and runs more smoothly when you are inactive, so please for the sake of the community, let your staff team do the task that they are here to do in the first place. Calling @Rolle for his POV. Please provide any video evidence you have.

    Hello folks! in the past few months I have rolled around with a ton of bandits, and seen great rp and bad rp. I know a few of my bandit friends are upset that non-bandit rp'ers are upset at getting robbed, and my bandit friends respond "There needs to be robbery and bad guys or the server will be stale!!!!" And.. they are correct. However; This^^^^ situation is what is presented to the non-bandit rp'ers at LEAST 40% of the time. Literal minutes of silence, while being told to stand in a circle and wait. And the only reason or build-up to the way of "Why was I robbed" is met with the most, boring.. stale... and awful basic beech Arr' P. After moments of silence.. the hostages self RP as nothing is being said by the folks who are running the show.. only then are they interrupted by the hostage taker ..to tell them " you are all going to die.. unless this stranger commits suicide in front of you". What the actual fuck? Now.. I will admit this story line of suicide jargon could be a really cool scenario with the proper build-up and hostage interactions.. but to just straight up, out of the blue say " Kill urself or all these pplz diez" .. I dunno man... This is why folks hate getting robbed. It isn't fun for the hostages, its just a weird... gathering of silent people. I don't mean to particular pick on the chaps listed here in the video... because I have seen this type of "Hostile roleplay" alot this year, and it's pissing folks off. Bandits, step up your game, because this is boring... and it's stupid. Get at me on TS if you'd like a full debate on the subject.

    Ground Zero - Place of Interest In the first month of the Outbreak survivors were occupied their daily struggle of finding food, safety, and some peace of mind in South Zagoria, generally forgetting or disregarding the place where the entire crisis had started. Some traveled into the base to search for supplies and anything left behind by the military forces that had manned the base before it was bombed. Many were smart and wore protective clothing and gas masks, others were either unaware or ignorant of the biological dangers of the site and went in unprotected. Some got lucky and some got sick, but most others just figured they had gotten bitten or exposed somehow. As the forces of the Russian Federation pulled out of the province and the CDF remnants were ordered out of the province, survivors left Chernogorsk and headed north to Severograd, a town which provided a fairly centralized location for commerce and hearing about the goings-on of the area. Apart from the occasional rumble from Tisy or the occasional Chernarussian Air Force jet high up in the sky, everything seemed normal. Aside from the amount of buildings that had been destroyed by Russian artillery the north Severograd countryside was almost picturesque. While downtown Severograd had mostly been spared, outlying areas were marked with destroyed houses and barns, a testament to the Russian attempt to distract the public from the epidemic that would soon grip the province and the world beyond. The civilians in the area had been evacuated or fled to Miroslavl, leaving behind ancestral homesteads and lands to rot. Cows and farm animals grazed at will in the countryside, and the frequent call of wolves in the forests to the north were a reminder of the dangers of travel as the summer months winded down and the temperature cooled down and the leaves began to change colour. The Kamensk Military Base was visited by forces of the UN in an attempt to discover more about the origins of the Outbreak. The former base of the 34th Engineer Company and the 176th "Gorka" Battalion was a shadow of its former self following the Russian bombing and the dispersal of the CDF from the base and the greater area. Most of the buildings present at the base had been in abysmal condition even before the Outbreak, most of which were leveled during the bombing. Tents set up by the military forces deployed to the site had mostly been looted or removed of valuables, and any documents or papers that could be used to deduce what had transpired there had conspicuously disappeared. The only real clue to what had happened being a pit down the hill to the south east of the base. A concrete slab punctuated by a small opening covered with a steel grate were apparent, but a look below the surface revealed a pile of bodies and a pipe that spanned the horrific pit, along with what appeared to be a shed jutting out of the side of the structure. The pipe had at one point been breached, with a jagged outline that showed where it had been. Since then it had been welded shut from the inside, and whoever had sealed the exposed pipe had conducted the job in a rushed manner among the pile of rapidly decaying carcasses that show evidence of being executed or subject to the blast of a grenade. The radiation level at the mysterious base is unusually high, not enough to be immediately dangerous, but enough to discourage anybody who knows about it to keep their path narrow and the duration of their visit brief. Beyond this, the level of biological contamination is far more of a threat to humans then the radiation. And as if that isn't enough, roaming packs of wolves make any trip to the site dangerous before one even reaches it. The feeling that you are being watched permeates the whole facility, making one uneasy as they tread through the area on their travels. In short, the location is a place full of questions and danger with few answers to offer up for the risk. //This thread meant to announce Ground Zero as a biologically contaminated site that would require sufficient protective gear and a gas mask to access safely. Those who don't would probably get sick dependant on where they went inside the base (pit, destroyed buildings, etc). It could also be considered bad rp to visit the site without the necessary protective gear and to play it off as if you were unaffected or safe from exposure. Everything that has been mentioned in this post can reasonably be seen by everybody IG, with the only small exception being the outline where the pipe has been welded shut from the inside. More will be done with Ground Zero in the future with the advent of hazmat suits in .63 (keep an eye on Tisy too) and as we start doing events in the area, many of which will be unannounced and dynamic which are directly related to the site.The radiation is just high enough to be suspicious but not really enough to do damage, the biological contamination is what will kill you.

    There's a real issue that seems to be plaguing our server lately. It's always been a part of the community, but with our consistently active playerbase shrinking by ~50%-75% on March 1st, this issue seems to have been magnified. Of course, everybody is going to enjoy different types of roleplay, and playstyles, but the mindset that they're somehow better than another person just because of the RP they enjoy/playstyle they play is toxic as fuck and is killing our server. It drives a huge wedge between members of the community, and it needs to stop. I'm not sure how to stop it, and I'm not suggesting any solutions, because this issue is much more complex than it may seem. However, I know for a fact that it will take everybody to make things better. There has always been a split between campfire RPers and RPVPers, and there has always been a sense of elitism on both sides. However, as I stated above, it seems to have been magnified since March 1st. PVPers are seen as scum of the community just because they rob people and get into firefights. Now, there are obviously some bad apples out there that ruin things for everybody, but just because there are those few assholes who have to abuse things, that doesn't mean PVPers should be stereotyped as terrible RPers who are only on the server to find PVP. This attitude towards PVPers can be seen both in game and on the forums. There have been many many times where either my friends and I, or another person I know, has been berated or insulted on an OOC level just because the person getting robbed is upset at the loss of their things. I've personally seen comments like the following from this report: 08:50:39 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //you have to emote you aids rping fucks jesus meta gaming, and now this jfc 08:50:44 : Direct: Dusty Mayfire: //stop ooc 08:50:51 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //stop breaking rules 08:51:15 : Direct: Axel Griffin: //dont break rules and i wont have to morons Or also things that are said directly to me/my friends, whether it be on the forums or in teamspeak. These don't necessarily have anything to do with PVP vs Campfire RP, but it shows that people lose control and allow themselves to act like an asshole over things that don't matter: Regarding things I've heard said about campfire RPers, I don't really have many examples to go on as I have not been a campfire RPer for at least 2 years now. However, what I have heard from other people, or even have heard myself said, are that campfire RPers are pussies that hide from everybody else or that they're piles of salt or that so-and-so is a whiteknight, or comments along those lines. Personally, I don't have a problem with campfire RP; my only issues lies with people who purposely hide away from other people and only internal RP, or people who avoid RP hotspots because it's 'dirty' or whatever. Now, both sides are guilty of elitism and OOC hate for the other side, and both are at fault for it. However, this is not something that can be easily solved. It will take everybody changing their mindset and being more open minded to make things better in our community. After all, we're all here to have fun and to create interesting stories, but this can be hindered when people allow themselves to get heated or upset over the tiniest things. Like I said, there's nothing that can really be done, besides everybody in the community opening their mind more and just being more chill in general. There is also the issue of people avoiding RP hotspots or hubs just because they think they're better than the RP that goes on there, or that avoid it because they don't want to ever experience bad RP. There is also an issue of people hiding away and only internal RPing with each other, and who completely avoid anybody that is not in their group. My issue lies with these types of people. I am not against internal RP, I am against people who purposely try to avoid anybody else for whatever reason. I've heard comments like "That type of RP belongs in Cherno!" and things along those lines. People calling the triangle, and more recently Cherno, cancer because the majority of reports are centered in that area. Like yeah, bad RP would happen there sometimes, but that happens when new people roleplay, or when somebody makes a mistake. Just because there might be a chance of bad RP happening, or because a majority of reports center around an area, doesn't mean people should just avoid it. That type of thinking is killing the server. Without an RP hub, or a place for people to go to RP with each other, it's just a bunch of people running around, searching town after town to find people to RP with. That's not fun. Just did it for an hour and a half. Ran from Elektro to Novaya Petrovka, and even over towards Severograd. Found literally nobody the entire time. Like I said, that's not fun. We're all here to RP with each other. Yes, bad RP can occur, but people shouldn't hide themselves away from everyone else just because they don't want to potentially experience bad RP, or because they're afraid of being robbed. When people hide themselves away, or avoid an area like it's the plague just because it's a popular area, it can and does kill a server. People come here to RP with other people. When they can't find anybody to RP with, it's not fun, and they're likely to not want to play on the server. That is how I am personally feeling lately. I don't have motivation to get in game, because it is difficult to find other people to RP with. I know for a fact that there are others out there who feel the same as I do. The idea that hiding away from people is better than RPing with others seems to be a relatively new idea. As far as I can remember, this was not an issue back in 2015. Green Mountain was always popular, as well as Zelenogorsk, Vybor/VMC, the airfield, Stary, Novy. Then there were times that Dolina was popular, and then the prison island, and then eventually the RP hub moved to Kabanino. It seems like the mindset of hiding from everybody stemmed from something during the time Kabanino became popular. I don't know why some people feel inclined to do so, but it's not a good mindset and will kill the community and server, unless our server populations rise again or unless that type of thinking is done away with. I'm not saying that people who do that are bad people or bad at RPing, but it is not a good mindset to have if we want the server to remain populated, and if we want our community to continue being about having fun and creating cool stories with each other. I'm also not saying that everybody should be at the RP hub 24 hours, 7 days a week. I just think that people need to get out of their comfort zones more often. Maybe that would keep the servers alive. Anyways, these are all my opinions. I am not trying to throw shade and flame people or a certain playstyle, and I am sorry if it came across that way. I am also not looking to get into arguments, and I would like it if other people could avoid flaming or flamebaiting each other, but that might be too much to wish for. What I would like to do, is create a discussion where we can all share our opinions and potentially open the eyes of people that were unaware of this issue.

    This is the first time the staff team has ever heard of this excuse. We have decided to test your theory ourselves. @Chewy and I went ingame and found a paintable weapon, Chewy (Character name: Caitlyn Myers) painted it and then handed me the gun. I proceeded to shoot her with it. According to your theory, the hitlog shouldn't show that I (Character name: Lexa Skyette) shot her. Below you can find the hitlog regarding our experiment: Below is the video of the experiment: @nicvin49, We have 2 questions for you: Would you like to edit your point of view to what actually happened? Do you have video evidence?

    So, I just got whitelisted here, and I'm not going to give my two cents on the safe zone because I haven't experienced anything on DayZRP yet. What this whole thread does do, is make me think twice about wanting to RP here. Clearly, most of you have "spirited" opinions on THIS subject, but I hope when I start reading the other topics, they aren't this negative. Please be respectful of both "sides" opinions and try to see things from other peoples points of view. Thank you.

    Server and location: S1, Kabanino. Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 7/31/17 18:00ish. Your in game name: Nikolai Trenkov. Names of allies involved: @Watchman & @Sleepyhead Name of suspect/s: Irish people. Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): I'll attempt to salvage some footage and upload it. Detailed description of the events: Ran into Kabanino to meet with my allies. Walking down the road, I am met with some Irish guy on the road. He greeted with me with "Who the fuck are you?" I replied to him in a similar manner. All of a sudden without anything coming from his mouth, all his friends spun around at the same time and bunched up on me at once. After some hostile roleplay, they took myself and my allies hostage. The forced me into the piano house, and I'm met with "If you chat shit, I'm gonna kill you." I get that quite a few times during the encounter. They move me into the house and ask me a few questions. They ask me my name, where I'm from and if I'm with the VDV for being Russian. It was quite simple roleplay in all honesty. Several of them were talking over each other and focused on other stuff, it was a little bit manic. But one of the allies of the suspect walked up to with me and told me to put on a white dress and dance for them. I point blank refused and told them no, I'm not a puppet to make a fool out of. They then shot me dead for non-compliance. I have no idea personally why a group of Irish people would be taking people hostage and telling them to wear dresses and dance for them 20 days into the infection.

    We don't need a picture of your neighbor. I honestly don't give a fuck about your neighbor or if you think they are retarded. To be clear here, you are not calling your neighbor sub human or anything else of that nature, cause like I said, I don't give a fuck about your neighbor unless they are a member of this community. What you said, verbatim was What that indicates to someone reading it is that your thoughts about what is subhuman is not your neighbor but actually transgendered people. What I also find interesting is that wasn't your original post, as it originally ended at What you did there was turn this into something that alienated no one and showed your displeasure as a parent of what your kids might have to see to alienating members of this community that are transgender. Had you left it the way you wrote it the first time, thoughts of points would have been much more hesitant and who knows if it would have even occurred. Outcome: Appeal Denied; These points are not here to stifle whatever notion of free speech or to tell you what you should do with your kids, but keep the hateful shit to yourself.

    Anarchy went through its course things come and go but I will say that I enjoyed my time to an extent till it became stressful to deal with. Playing here is about having fun and when you lose that you need to move on. I would sit there and deal with so much bullshit there on a daily bases get accused of being a toxic community member and stuff. I would get called a shit roleplayer people wouldn't give me or my friends a chance to roleplay so eventually when we would give up on dealing with bullshit people would be like hey uh why did they archive? I don't know maybe we get sick of peoples shit. There are people here that like to stay in a bubble they don't like it when you try to roleplay with them and when it doesn't go their way they get super offended. That shit right there is so annoying to deal with you walk up to someone you try and put effort into your roleplay but they're like oh hey it's these guys we don't like them lets just not put any effort in and when they do we will go in a drop in some feedback in. Then there's the whole report shit I legit don't want to report I don't but when it comes to the fact that we have to report to show that it's not just Anarchy that breaks rules then its becomes fucked. The fact that Anarchy was around for like 4 months and it was like 4 bans just happened to be frequently close to each other doesn't mean staff need to be heavy handed the fact that I had to go and help staff correct some report verdicts is ridiculous we shouldn't have to do that we should have confidence in the staff team to provide good verdicts. I would say I have faith in the current GM team but I do not I want things to change but I am one man and they will most likely not listen to me. I bet most of these issues would be tolerable with a better game but right now man its hard to deal with a shit game and a community that's so turned against itself I would like to see a place where we could all get along but that will never happen. I want to say to all my friends in Anarchy and especially @JimRP thank you guys for the time in Anarchy and If I'm not around after this then fuck it love you all.

    Ah, yes. The almighty Shiro. I was expecting this, but was hoping you would be mature about the situation. From my understanding the group rights were obtained by my friend Matt in 2015 from another individual from when he owned it. Myself as well as others pretty much led the group ourselves and changed the lore because we didn't agree with you power-gaming yourself into not only the Aegis lore (making it all centered around you), but also the entire community lore. According to the story I was told by Matt, he got drunk one night and you convinced him to hand the rights over. He did, didn't remember it the next morning but by then it was too late. You kicked all of us out of the group then told me as well as others that we couldn't play as the characters WE developed, that WE created stories with, and the characters that OTHERS enjoyed role-playing with. I am not certain but I think you even THREATENED to report us over it. After that you just archived the group. You complain, complain, complain all the time about how people don't like you or seem to not want to play with you and this is exactly why. You treat people like trash my dood. We developed the group in 2015 and had fun times with it, but you were no where to be seen. Out of no where you come out, essentially steal the group we developed during that time, and said "Fuck you all", then you left the community and didn't return for a year! I even messaged @Rolle about the issue and I believe he was willing to step in, but I dropped it because to be frank, I stopped caring and moved on. I then messaged him again recently and he said it was okay for me to make the group as I was a part of it in 2015, the last time it was active. By the way Shiro, the group itself I enjoyed playing, but stop trying to make it out as some ultra-original idea. It's pretty much an Umbrella Corporation reskin, all you did was replace the names Umbrealla Corp with Aegis Corp, originally you didn't even bother changing the character names, you just kept the old RE ones. I actually am planning on going back and revamping the lore entirely in an attempt to make it a bit more original. If you have anything further to say, please private message me.

    It's peaceful according to you. If it was peaceful I wouldn't be receiving multiple PM every week with complaints about groups or PvPers along with recorded videos of their bullshit. Players hubs like Pub wouldn't have to relocate due to constant attacks and griefing. Reports are still being posted at the same rate as before considering the number of players we have daily. How exactly am I not understanding what is happening on the server, I have proof in form of countless videos from reports section to back it up while you just have your personal opinion. And I am not here to restrict and constrain hostile RP. As I explained in this post just 2 days ago, I don't have problem with hostile RP, I have a problem with PvPers. These are completely different things in my book and it is clear that some people in this community do not see the difference, they think they are doing hostile RP, but what they're really doing is just run around and initiate on people or get in firefights. Damn right it's my community and the rules I set are always for the betterment of role play, never for PvP. So it's natural that PvPers will be pissed off and pushed away, in fact I count on it, because this community is not for PvPers. It's the entire point of introducing these rules - it's not to restrict the legitimate role players, it's to restrict and get rid of PvPers. It should be a pretty obvious thing I think considering the name of this community. I haven't really hidden the fact that I was more than satisfied to see large part of people who left during chicken tendie be gone, they caused a fuckton of issues in this community. Sure, there were some good people too whom I was sad to see go, but majority were just PvPers. So please, stop with the doomsday predictions, it's getting old. These "DayZRP is dying if you don't change now" has been going on since 2012 and during chicken tendie as well about how the community will fall without their awesome bandit PvPRP and as we know absolutely nothing has happened. In fact, I'd say the standard of RP has only increased. This community can handle many, many PvPer cleansings to come. What you don't see is the true role players who share my values are more than delighted to see the PvPers gone, but won't express it publicly as I do as they don't hold the position of power like me and they would be bullied and ridiculed for their opinion by the "bois". Again, it is not big as I think it is according to you. Everything else like PMs I receive, conversations in staff, reports posted, videos uploaded show a completely different story, so I cannot take your word on this. And again, I want to remind you that hostile RP does not equal PvPing. Genuine hostile RPers should have absolutely no issues with the changes being made as they rarely if ever get in reports unless the victim is salty about something. What are you talking about? I think I treat all members who follow our rules equally. What does expectation for people to behave well in this community has to do with whom me and my admin team chooses as new staff members? Choosing people who enter our team has nothing to do with equality. We choose people who we think are reliable and a good fit for the team. If your friends list consists of 50% of permabanned players then obviously you are not a reliable choice as we cannot trust you with internal staff information, your connections and the risk of leaks is just too great, regardless of how good roleplayers you might be. I don't see how that is being a hypocrite. This point kind of sounds similar to what happened during the PR Manager recruitment controversy (people questioned why someone was promoted to that rank). If I wanted to recruit 50 new completely unknown people into staff to handle DayZRP things I could. Who gets added to the staff is none of the concern of regular members - that is handled by admin team and me and stays there. We don't have to explain or justify our choices. You are free to disagree with the choices we make or criticize that staff members work, but our choice who to recruit is ours only. Why would we want someone like that in our community? He clearly didn't give a crap about anything that we stand for and has already broken one of our major rules, now he was doing it purposefully again. Giving 5-10 warning points and then what, wait for him to go on KoS spree and destroy someones RP? This is perfect example why we have rule 4 - if me or the admins see that someone is unfit or unwilling to role play in this community - they will be removed at moments notice without questions asked. It is not heavy handed, it is damage control before it reaches genuine role players in game whom we are here to protect. This community is for RP, not PvP. Someone who enjoys PvP more than RP has no place here, there are hundreds of public servers for that. We are not and have never have been a community for everyone and I have never claimed it to be as such. We specifically ONLY want people who want to focus on RP and not PvP. Once again (third time now?), note the difference between hostile RP and PvPing. If your priorities lay in PvPing then this is not a community for you. That's why saying things like Boston did on our forums is in direct violation of the core values or principles of this community, and since Boston didn't include any indications that his post is a joke, I as an administrator must take action. I will not risk someone disturbing ongoing RP with their PvP because "it was just a joke on the forums". It's called preventive action through rule 4 and it's similar how if someone posts a status update "going on kos spree brb", it will get you banned from the servers, joke or not. It may be obvious to you that this was not worth of any sort of punishment, but then again you are not administrator with the power of rule 4 whose duty is to remove unsuitable players at moments notice. You may think joking about breaking the rules in this community is funny shit, I do not think so because it affects MY players and MY community negatively and I as an owner have a strong commitment and desire to keep this community for role play and role players only. All warnings and bans issued are legitimate. They have a backing in our community rules or community principles. All bans and warnings are done on case to case basis depending on the situation. They are not meant to be justified by referencing to another similar case, they are not comparable. Besides that, Dusty please. "Some of the behaviors were not appropriate"? Cmon, let's name things as they are. The chicken tendie was a bunch of immature kids, PvPers and banter bois throwing a fit with hitler pics because when one of them broke the rules for the Nth time they expected getting smacked on the wrist with 3 points as usual and what they got instead was the hammer. They feel they were wronged? Well of course, they kept pushing the boundaries and breaking the rules, so they got thrown out, of course they feel wronged. I absolutely expect another banwave to happen because I know that we still have quite a few PvPers left in the community who do not care about RP at all and just want to initiate on role playing nerds, am I right? Whether they leave on their own through another staff suicide or I remove them remains to be seen. As you probably have guessed from reading this far, we will have to agree to disagree. I have to act the way I do because the staff team usually wants to avoid confrontation and controversy that results in drama or they do not feel like they have the power or authority behind them to enforce the rules to the level that they perhaps would want to. I on the other hand after 5 years of running this community am used to people hating me for and creating drama surrounding my decisions, directness and swift actions. My actions are hurting the people focused on PvP, just like intended, not the role playing players or the community that I created this place for. Regular role players should only feel improvements when they are exposed to less bullshit robberies, unjustified kills, receive hostile RP that is fair-play and are stopped being taken advantage of. Also a small correction - staff members do not run the community FOR ME, they do it for the community. I do not sign a contract with them, nor do I pay them and we only take volunteers. Those who show dedication, share the same opinion about our core values and have the right mindset are given a chance to have a large role in how the community functions by becoming a GM or Admin. Thanks for the feedback though, it confirms my understanding that there are still many people in this role playing community (just look at these BeanZ! ) who want this to be more of a no-KoS server with limited to no rules about RP, rather than a protected sanctuary of genuine role play. And I'm sorry if I made any typos, written fast before bed. Also I still love you Dusty, you're my favorite hostile RPer and I very much enjoy different viewpoints from you when discussing reports, no hard feelings.

    So this is discussion about point 7 in this thread: The goal here is to make it fair and realistic in hostile situation when someone is initiated upon or role played with. Currently: 1. When initiated upon you quickly tell your team mates in TeamSpeak that you are attacked and you say all details like where, how many the enemy are, their location, clothing etc. That is not realistic as in such a hostile situation the attacker would be able to hear you say all these things into the radio. The attacker has no way of preventing you from giving out this information as when they take your radio it is already too late. 2. During hostile situations the attackers are often seen walking around and doing things without ever talking to one another. They seemingly talk with one another and decide on things telepathically. After the rule is implemented: 1. When initiated upon you will have to say everything that you say to your team in game. That way the initiator has a realistic way of telling you for example "don't touch that radio" which is a reasonable demand considering the hostile situation. 2. When role playing with other players, OOC comms may not take priority over IC comms. Now, to formulate the rule, I was thinking about something like this: 11. Metagaming 11.5 In presence of other players you must use in game communications if your message contains IC information. This is especially important during hostile situations where you may not use external communication like TeamSpeak to share in character information like your location or details about the attackers. Feel free to discuss and suggest different definitions of the rule, I know this one isn't very good but I hope it shows you what the goal with it is.

    Hey folks, I'm here to talk about a subject that is touchy, and a fair amount of people completely disagree with. I ask you to hear me out. The Problem: Bandits running around robbing folks over and over and over again. Stale RP, and stale hostage RP. The Problem, explained: For a long time there has been no real massive story arc for groups. I think it's fair to say it has been since 2015 since a real server-wide story arc has taken place amoungst multiple groups.. and I'm talking like a real story arc here.. A beginning, middle, and end. Example; The Family started up, and made a bad name for itself by carving into folks and torturing people. The Valkeryies and The Irish banded together to bring the family down, and after a few key battles, The Family tore apart. This is obviously an oversimplification, but it outlines why folks enjoyed 2015 so much. Groups had a big storyling that had a beginning, middle, and end right? Today there are no fun story arcs, and I feel it stems from lack of consequences from both campfire RP-ers, and PVP heavy groups. If the campfire RP-ers dont want to get robbed all the time, and they get tired of getting robbed.. as anyone would.. they would fight back. The reason they are campfire RP-ers is because they do not enjoy PVP all the time.. only some of the time. Right? But in the current system if the Campfire RP-ers fight back ..it's just giving the PVPers what they want; PVP. There are no consequences of a firefight. The Campifre get shot, the PVPrs get shot.. they both respawn.. but now the PVP'r wants revenge his blood has been kicked up LETS GO BOYS ITS ON!!! Battle, after battle ensues.. the Campfire folks only wanted 1 or two battles but now it's everyday... for a week or two until the parties get bored of each other, or the campfire folks go afk.. salty. There is no way to progress story arcs outside of campfire RP in our current system. I mean.. there IS... but there is no way to enforce people to RP story arcs. Here is my suggestion, a 3 prong solution to help the server into a more RP focused mind-set. Step 1: Permadeath. I think it would be fair to say if your character dies 3 times via firefight or execution.. that your character is over with. Keep Execution rights nearly the same as they are and you have a pretty fair and realistic consequence for being a shitlord. This way, PVP'rs can still be the PVP group they want.. but now they have to pick and choose engagements.. cuz if you die ... you ded... right? Step 2: Implement @Rolle group balance idea to an extent. The pvp'ers just lost one or two guys 3 times in a firefight.. and they want to keep playing in the group right? JUST RE-MAKE A COOKIE CUTTER CLONE OF THE GUY WHO JUST DIED!! Obviously we don't want this, and it would be relatively easy to enforce. Anyone who's in game a lot will know the names of prominent Campfire, and or PVP players.. especially the enemies of said folks.. they will police themselves. "Yo... our group just killed David Mack like 4 times this week.. and now @Rebel Pado just made a guy whos name is Darvid Merck... and he acts the exact same way... WTf?! Report that shit!!" It will be painfully obvious when these cookie cutter characters come into play.. also.. if you are not allowed to cookie cutter, and you must make a brand new character.. the grouo will be forced to change. If you kill the leader, and his top 3 guys.. and those folks have to remake NEW AND ORIGINAL characters.. there is no way for them to follow the same story arc... the LoreMaster team should keep on top of the RP leadership.. to make sure groups are adhereing to a new goal-set if/when the leadership gets.. you know.. smoked. This wil VASTLY improve group story arc. Also make sure folks cant just make cookie cutter groups over and over again... Step 3; Radio chatter. Okay we've handled those DIRTY PVPERS.. what about the silly white knight campfire RP-r who will go into radio chatter and thump his chest.. only to get into game and sit up north, or be polite whilst he is right next to the guys he flamed two days prior.? How do we deal with this cancer? Make anything overtly hostile said IC on radio chatter count as a hostile action towards execution. That way Campfire RP-ers will be kept in check.. if the PVP bandits find that dude after he's said like on 5 different occasions that " WHEN I SEE YOU NEXT I WILL KILL YOU SCUM!!!" ... if the pvp-r can give good execution RP in response to the dick waving over the air... that will cut back greatly on the needless radio chatter cancer. Also, if the Campfire RP-r greatly values his or hers character... he/she will comply to robberies. And you bet for DAMN SURE they will act realistically to fear RP if their characters life is on the line. Some of these steps outlined will be difficult, and time consuming to police.. like group leadership dying and seeing the groups direction change in response. But it will largely be self policing. You can be damn sure the enemies of a group WILL be paying attention to that shit.. and the salt lords WILL call attention to ANY slight found in the enemies group, or RP. The LM's can go through the salt when it arrives.. and see what the truth of it is. Thoughts? I feel this would bring SIGNIFICANT group story arcs back.. and can solve the robberies issue.. and the shitty campfire hostage RP/radio chatter dickery.
