    (Al-Takhari Mujahideen) History (Founders of the Al-Takhari Mujahideen) The organization known as Al-Takhari Mujahideen came about in the year of 1987. The group's roots came from Zargabad, but they operated in the Takhari area. A majority of their missions were carried out within the Midwestern region of Takistan. The Takhari cell was formed due to the unstable region, the majority of the populace being Muslim and the potential of civil war breaking out at any given time. They were formed after they made contact with the Mujahideen from the Middle East with whom they established a weapon smuggling route from Russia to South Zagoria and into Takistan. The smuggled goods were then distributed from Takistan through other routes that the Mujahideen had previously established into the Middle East. Under the leadership of Fahad al-Zawahiri, the Takhari cell started radicalizing the local populace shortly into the Civil war in order to gain manpower and to make sure their smuggling operations were unhindered. There were those who opposed al-Zawahiri in the start, but after the 89’ bomb attacks in Zargabad, the opposition quickly dispersed. When the bomb attacks started the Al-Takhari were immediately labeled as a terrorist organization, and they became well known within the area. With the increasing influence of Western Civilization within Takmyr, the Al-Takhari decided to take action against those who supported the West. They started carrying out attacks on the Western military convoys using guerilla warfare tactics and planted several car bombs in residential areas that were mostly non-Muslim. Pre-Infection (Brothers of the Al-Takhari celebrating after another successful mission) Years had passed since the Al-Takhari Mujahideen was formed. After the civil war ended, a new Takistani political party came into power. In their desperation they allowed foreign militaries to come into Takistan and set up bases, the same foreign powers that the Mujahideen have been fighting since their inception. Due to the increased military oppression from western forces, the Al-Takhari decided to solidify their control of the Takhari ridge. They set up many underground bunkers, hideouts and caves complexes in the mountainous areas which proved ideal as the forces that opposed them had little information on the terrain while the Mujahideen were on their home ground. After the United States invasion of Takistan in 2012, the Al-Takhari suffered losses but the majority still held out in their bunkers and hideouts on the Ridge. In an attempt to behead the Mujahideen's leadership NATO forces bombed a meeting of the elders that took place in a village west of Zargabad. Fahad al-Zawahiri and the majority of the leadership that was present were killed in the operation and it left the Takhari cell without leadership. It was at that time that Ibrahim Al Suwaidi ibn Mustafa, a prominent soldier and commander, came into power of the Al-Takhari. He took an even more radical approach to dealing with the opposition with a submit or die ideology, and they began enforcing what they believed was true Islam. Although it became more difficult, they continued their gun smuggle trade to arm other Mujahideen in the East. The smuggle route was still possible because Ibrahim had connections within Chernarus that made it possible for them to continue where they had left off. The Al-Takhari became even more aggressive in their hit-and-run attacks on Western forces and they became well-known for their unmatched guerrilla warfare tactics under the new leadership. Due to their skill in rogue tactics and the tactical advantage of knowing every inch of the terrain, they could defeat enemies even when they were outmanned and outgunned. This came in handy considering it had become harder to smuggle weapons through the border due to the invasion, therefore there was a lack of arms coming to the Mujahideen. The Al-Takhari regularly would set missions to attack US and NATO force convoys in attempts to both disrupt their patrols and gather supplies. The Al-Takhari continued their fight against the western influences and continued their support to the Middle East. Post-Outbreak The situation only got worse with the outbreak of the new virus for the Mujahideen. With security becoming tighter around the border, the smuggle route had become practically non-existent. Supplies had begun to run low, and a lot of commotion had been happening in the west. Word had got to the Al-Takhari that there was something out there causing people to go crazy and attack others. The Al-Takhari blamed the infection on the western world and their way of life.They believed that the worst of the kuffars, moderates and those with ill morals were being struck by divine wrath. In their eyes, it was God's way of marking the “shaytans” so that they would have an easier time recognizing them and ridding the world of them once and for all. The Mujahideen now had a mission to do but the recent events made that entirely impossible. The Al-Takhari were low on supplies, and a majority of the military forces in the area had shifted their convoys towards the Takistani-Chernarussian border. It was around mid-August when the Takistani-Chernarussian border fell. A few more weeks had passed and the Mujahideen’s supplies were just about completely exhausted. Ibrahim ordered his right-hand man Said to organize a squad and head west towards the border to gather as many supplies as possible. Said and the men he brought with him dressed in civilian clothes and decided to head out on their mission. While in western Takistan the men had gathered some supplies but more importantly they also came back with valuable information about what was going on in Chernarus. Once Said and the other brothers returned Ibrahim and the other leaders of the Takhari cell sat down to discuss their findings. Said mentioned that some of his men overheard NATO soldiers talking about how the CDF had abandoned an entire region of Chernarus. He continued by adding that they could not hold the South Zagorian region due to constant civilian and paramilitary uprisings. Ibrahim was in disbelief that the Chernarussian defense force would abandon such a large region of their country. While, at the time, he believed it to just be a rumor the thought still lurked in the back of his mind. Ibrahim decided to investigate the matter and got into contact with his connection in Chernarus, Abdul Saddam. After he got in touch with Abdul via radio, Abdul explained the rumors to be true and more. Saddam went on in detail about how South Zagoria had fallen, and anarchy ruled the region. He told him how people ran around doing whatever they pleased, kill whoever they pleased, and robbing whoever they please. Abdul also explained that the CDF left their military bases unmanned and ripe for the picking. That meant military equipment which the Mujahideen sorely needed for their cause was completely unmanned and left behind. Journey to Chernaus Shortly after speaking with Abdul, Ibrahim summoned a meeting with the leaders of the Takhari to devise a course of action to exploit the situation at hand. It was then decided that a part of the forces were to stay behind and remain within Takistan to secure their territories and enforce the law while the rest will venture into South Zagoria. Using their established gun smuggling routes the men crossed the border into Chernarus with the help of Abdul Saddam and his men who knew the country like the back of their hand. Upon crossing the Takistani-Chernarussian border they found themselves West of Belozersk from where they crossed Lake Beloe in dinghy boats at night. Continuing their journey on foot they stuck to goat paths in the mostly unreachable mountainous terrain close to the Black Mountains to avoid detection. They moved in the night, they moved lights to avoid any detection. It was so dark that if one stuck his hand out he would not be able to see it. The moon was their source of navigation. Thanks to Abdul, they were able to make it to the northwestern corner of South Zagoria without detection. @Dew - Ibrahim al Suwaidi ibn Mustafa @Dusty - Abdul Saddam @Tom - Said al Saif ibn Saud @focus - Brahim al Fayed @Randle - Mohammad al Dukov @evanm23 - Abdul Al Samad Saleem @Shane - Shaheer bin Shafee @ExoticRainbow - Aaf al Abad @Gnikiv the Mountain - Maaz al Selim @Joffrey - Mohammed Al-Adeen @Pep - Saif Al Jabari ibn Saeed @Duorhs The Conqueror - Abdul Baasid al-Ismail @GreekGodx - Tarif al-Qahtani @Macbrine - Abdullah Al-Aziz @Undead - Omar Rasheed Faheen @Flash - Hassan Yasin - Send gasoline and valuable goods and resources home. -Acquire supplies to arm and aid Al-Takhari forces in the area -Expand the caliphate into South Zagoria for our Militant group. -Enforce the Al-Takhari’s vision of true Islam -Recruitment is set to [Open] - Must have been whitelisted for longer than 2 months.

    Roleplaying with Medical Facilities and Medical Supplies So, we all know games have limitations. This is especially true for the medical facilities and items in DayZ. We all know the various items, blue buildings, tiny hospitals, etc. These things are made smaller for a variety of reasons, none of which have to constrict your roleplay. Hospitals also have a very extensive emergency program and how to enact it. Too much to write and read, look up Hospital Emergency Disaster Protocol and you will find all kinds of things. So let’s start with the areas that are in game, and game vs. logical reality. A few are not actually in game but can be easily pretended as they are in real life: Areas in game to use for roleplaying Before reading this I want to challenge the reader, I want you to name for yourself all the places you think you could find medical supplies. After you’ve done that, read down the list and consider things that you have not thought of. More than likely, other people have not either, meaning that these areas may be good places to look. Hospital Medical Clinic Military Compound Field Hospital Military Checkpoints Doctor’s offices/general offices Specialists offices Walk in clinics Pharmacies Grocery Stores Red Cross Camps Shipping Containers Most business places/bars/schools Downed Helicopters Ambulances Homes Colleges/Bookstores Infected Military and Doctors And probably many more PROMOTING MILITARY OPERATIONAL PRACTICE THAT ENSURES SAFE ACCESS TO AND DELIVERY OF HEALTH CARE http://healthcareindanger.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/icrc-002-4208-promoting-military-op-practice-ensures-safe-access-health-care.pdf In Depth Breakdowns Hospital- · Located in major cities. I believe 3 floor buildings including the roof. Three large rooms on the main floor, including waiting room and bathrooms. Go to the side is the entrance to the hospital, go around the corner and there is a small storage area. If you go up the stairs the next floor consists of one hallway and no open rooms. Continue up the stairs and you find a roof. There are also ladders to get up and down from the outside. DayZ Hospital / The closest I could find visually was a children’s hospital in Russia Then, you have to realize how BIG hospitals are. Even the smaller ones are large. These are hospitals in major cities, they’re going to be huge. Obviously the game can only put so much into them due to graphics and stuff, but IRL, these would be packed. Also one window, could be a room of anywhere between 1-6 beds. Operating rooms · Actual city hospitals are huge and have a lot of equipment · Lots of different supplies · Usually stocked for emergencies, disasters, and triage. This includes survival supplies. This is stated in protocol and procedures. · If you are interested in learning about hospital procedures go to google and look up things like ‘hospital emergency protocol’, ‘disaster hospital protocol, protecting hospital staff in crisis, hospitals during epidemic, etc. · Mandatory to have: Pharmacy inside or right next to Pharmacies during emergency crisis locate all medical supplies needed, often regulating what goes where via who need it. They also stockpile for specific emergencies if they get word ahead of something. – Example, if they know there was a radiological attack, they’re going to stockpile all the hospitals immediately with medication and other items needed specifically for treatment of mass casualties that will be swarming the hospital. During an epidemic having essential medicines readily available is critical At least 1 decontamination chamber and supplies including protective clothing to at least deal with 1 person with unknown contamination Laboratory with tools to run tests, stocked Backup generators · Lots of different kinds of wards and rooms. In house laboratory Birthing Center Neo Natal Cardiovascular Radiology Dialysis Emergency Operating Rooms Outpatient Mental Health Morgue/Cold Room Possible Autopsy Room Lots of large machines like MRI, X-Ray, Dialysis Cafeteria Nursing stations and rooms with food, drink, microwaves Waiting room Laundry Lobbies Janitorial closets Pharmacy Etc. · Even if a hospital is shut down during an emergency, the supplies and vehicles are still able to be used for other areas. Usually they are actually left specifically for that purpose. · In absolute extreme cases, even though it is antithetical to how hospitals usually operate, they may lock down the facility to not allow contaminated patients inside. Medical Clinic- http://blog.cmecorp.com/a-quick-check-list-of-medical-equipment-items-for-your-primary-care-practice Blue buildings located in rural areas. Large waiting room and I think its 4 separate rooms, one contains a table and lockers. Would have basic supplies. Essentially the same as a basic walk in clinics or general doctors’ offices Basic ability to do examinations, tests and some other things and provide basic care, possibly minor procedures Military Compounds / Military Hospitals- · While there are no ‘medical areas’ in the actual compound for the game, it would make no sense for there to not be an onsite medical facility, or one nearby. Especially considering the need for triage in such a war torn area. At the very least North West Airfield, Tisy and Kamensk. Though Kamensk’s has probably been blown to rubble. Probable to be about as stocked as a normal hospital, including some major medical devices. Also military hospitals can range between triage levels, simple to maximum, where they can fix simple to extremely complex problems. Debating on the level of triage and care provided, also determines the type of supplies that should be there. Military Hospitals have to be ready to face nearly any problem. People are usually stabilized as best they can, and then are sent to specific trauma centers to deal with the type and urgency of their injuries. So a Tier I hospital may have basic supplies, but a Tier III could have a bunch of neurological equipment for brain surgery and such. Helicopter Landing Pad Medical facility Trauma Area Emergency Operating Room Beds and rooms to keep people Lots of large machines like MRI, X-Ray, Dialysis May actually have Field hospital kits ready to be deployed More suited to military combat medicine. Tactical Stretchers Field hospitals- “A field hospital is a small mobile medical unit, or mini hospital, that temporarily takes care of casualties on-site before they can be safely transported to more permanent hospital facilities. This term is used overwhelmingly with reference to military situations, but may also be used in times of disaster.” Portable hospital including surgical areas, labs, etc. Field hospitals are set up by multiple groups, military, Red Cross, and other humanitarian organizations during times of disaster. Essentially they are a movable hospital, fully stocked and run by capable people. They are also extremely likely to be put up in areas of disaster or mass scale problems Field hospitals would also have a lot of other survival things- food, water, collapsible/portable beds, surgical tables, various furniture The Army also currently has solar powered tents Erecting a shower facility Tactical Stretcher Portable Beds The AllEvac® Patient Recovery Bed was designed to help provide a fast, effective, and economical response to mass casualty and hospital surge situations. The bed’s aluminum frame supports up to 500 lbs. so you can provide care to almost any size patient. Also these places are stockpiled with supplies. Using areas they call ‘plug and play’. Set up of a camp/tent and essentially plug in all of the machines etc. and go.

Rugged expeditionary kit. • http://en.medin.by/production/operating-tables/general-surgery-portable-folding-operating-table-ok-omega Military Checkpoints- “Civilian checkpoints or security checkpoints are distinguishable from border or frontier checkpoints in that they are erected and enforced within contiguous areas under military or paramilitary control. Civilian checkpoints have been employed within conflict-ridden areas all over the world to monitor and control the movement of people and materials in order to prevent violence.” It would probably have basic first aid and anything that may be needed as extra for a specific problem. Such as in case of pandemic; lots of masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc. Doctors’ offices- Not in game, different from medical clinics. Most towns should have a few. Basic supplies. Walk in clinics, emergency walk in, etc. general offices- Basic mid-level medical supplies, laboratory supplies Specialist’s offices- Most major towns should have a few. Specialty equipment depending on the type. Probably have a combination of basic items, laboratory, and specialty tools. Some types it would make sense to find Addiction Allergist Cardiologist Dermatologist Pediatrician Endocrinologist Family Medicine Gastroenterologist Nephrologist Neurologist Obstetrician Oncologist Ophthalmologist Oral Surgeon Orthopedic surgeon Otolaryngologist Pain management Psychiatrist Pulmonologist Reproductive Rheumatologist Sleep Disorder Thoracic Urologist Vascular Pharmacy- Medications, weights, bottles, OTC meds, braces, canes, etc Grocery stores- Most major towns, some rural ones. Medicine, some random things. Band-Aids, basic over the counter drugs, reproductive health, first aid, braces, etc. Red Cross Camps- While non-existent in game, we do have Red Cross running around as characters. It would make sense some supplies is still scattered around. Likley the same as a field hospital. Shipping containers at docks- random, you never know what’s inside Most business places- Bars, schools etc. would have basic first aid kits. Crashed helicopters- I know, you’re probably looking at this one going ‘what?’ Think about it, all military helicopters would make sense to have 3 things. Also depends on the type of crash, did you possibly find an evacuation helicopter? Military? Medical? Maps of the area First Aid Kit, if not Trauma Supplies (even better!) Survival Kit in case of crashing Survival gear either for crew or civilians Long distance traveling helicopters may have kits with rafts and ocean survival supplies The short version is there are hundreds of various types of survival and first aid packs that would be in helicopters/airplanes/etc. So… while most people go running around and will role play looking for people or ammunition etc. My characters, once upon finding no one there (or alive), will usually climb inside the thing and look all over for anything useful. Specifically first aid and survival kits that may have been left behind. She will usually flip through anything she can find paper wise as well just to see if anything useful shows up APLS Life Guard is an extremely effective portable litter that provides essential thermal and absorbent protection during emergency rescues and evacuations.

DS2 decontaminating solution RIP AWAY EOD POUCH Small rip away medical pouch Personal medic rip off bag So let’s say you did run into someone who had been a combat medic going out for a mission, or find a helicopter that was transferring patients to a better level of care facility. What would they be carrying on them? The answer is, a lot. Combat Medic Gear Medical Equipment A combat medic will typically carry a backpack styled bag known as a "Unit One Pack". Aid bags are available from many different manufacturers, in many different styles. Depending on the unit and their standard operating procedures, the medic may have to follow a strict packing list, or may have the liberty of choosing their kit depending on the mission at hand. A typical aid bag will include: IV fluids and tubing saline- normal saline/sodium chloride saline- hetastarch/hextend saline- Lactated Ringers (LR) IV catheters, various sizes FAST 1 intraosseous infusion kit hemorrhage control CAT, SOFT-T or improvised tourniquets Emergency Trauma Bandages First aid pressure dressing Kerlix gauze Hemostatic agents (Celox, Hemcon, etc.) 14 gauge catheter, at least 3.25 inches long, for needle chest decompression Asherman chest seal, Bolin chest seal, hyfin chest seal, chest seal stickers, for sucking chest wounds Nasopharyngeal Airway (nasal trumpet) King LTD airway tube and cuff Combitube Surgical Cricothyrotomy kit Nitrile gloves alcohol/iodine swabs cravats (muslin bandages) Band-Aids assorted gauze bandages Coban (stretchy, self clinging wrap/gauze) Assorted sizes of medical tape Ace Bandages Assorted hypodermic needles and syringes combat casualty card SAM splint water jel burn dressing small sharps shuttle trauma shears safety pins morphine antibiotics Narcan Phenergan Epi-pen acetaminophen (Tylenol) naproxen/ibuprofen (NSAID) Pseudoephedrine (allergy) Guaifenesin (expectorant) Loperamide (Imodium AD) Pepto Bismol tablets Colace (docusate sodium) med strength stool softener stethoscope blood pressure cuff pulse oximeter otoscope ophthalmoscope thermometer How to Roleplay in These Areas? You get to be creative here, but also be logical. A hospital should have a lot of things: surgical room, tools, scrubs, patient clothing, cleaning supplies, and lots of things. While we can’t have an actual hospital in game that is open and we can run around and have all the rooms that should be there, we can still rp them being there. Does everything work? Probably far from it. A hospital would easily have surgery rooms, or a surgical room. I’ll usually commandeer Tyrus’s office as my triage room. (Usually because he’s not there at the time). This way I have a room to put the person in and can work. My character keeps check of stock and cleans everything up afterward. A downstairs office could also be a patient room. It really could be any room you want it to be. Just make sure that the people you are roleplaying with are on the same page or things will get very confusing. So via rp in the game, I’m tech using the downstairs office that Tyrus claimed as the surgical area because it’s all I’ve got in DayZ. In roleplay, I’m using a room inside the hospital that is a surgery room that my character maintains as best as she can. I had fun with Taryn as we were trying to find gynecological equipment. Considering the hospital we were at was in a larger town, (not the largest, but good size) after talking with Taryn a bit, we figured it would probably at the very least have basic exam rooms, reproductive health and probably a maternity section. Obviously the hospital was only so large via the game, but we emoted walking around hallways, looking at pictures, not understanding signs and looking until we finally found what we needed. Dice rolls explained below also had a large part in not finding, or finding supplies. How to get supplies? This is a rolling system I based off of one made by @Redbond9 during my introduction with him and @SpaceCowboy to the world of medical roleplaying via DayZ. Anyone can really make up their own system, just be sure that it’s a fair system. I may use different sized dice for different places I’m looking for something. A hospital would be a larger dice, while a helicopter would be very small. Again, you figure out your own system. For me, I use dice rolls in a similar way to this: Can I find what I am looking for? - If looking for specific items, higher numbers I find it. Just looking for supplies/anything- Same as above. How much do I find? – Depends on what I’m looking for, sometimes low dice, sometimes higher. I usually don’t take the number as literal, it could mean various things. 1 could be 1 box of items or 1 package (multiple boxes) depending on the area I’m role playing in. Hospital you are more likely to find boxes, while a clinic maybe packages or individual items. What condition is it in? - This is a big one. Things happen, medicine expires, places flood, etc. I use a large dice roll and separate the numbers evenly into three categories. Low. Medium. High. This translates to unusable, beat up but functional, great condition. Barriers- Sometimes add in things for your own experience. Looking for a book is it in a language you understand Can you get into an area due to locks to secure supplies Can you even find the special locker for chemicals Then can you get it open Is what you need there Is it in usable condition How many cabinets/drawers are in a room to look through Is the area or location compromised and thus making the safety of the equipment questionable There are a lot of fun ways to challenge yourself, or keep yourself in check during this sort of thing. You can come up with all sorts of things. Example: In blue medical facility, looking for a guide to suturing in English. Can I find what I’m looking for? Roll 1D20 Is it in English? Roll 1 D6 How many do I find? Roll 1 D6 What’s the condition? Roll 1D20 So I could end up not finding it at all, could find it in the wrong language, the correct language, multiple copies, in great or unusable conditions. How to Roleplay with Supplies. So, suddenly you have all of this stuff that isn’t actually in game. Imagination and descriptive typing time. You see us do this a lot with tools and the like. If someone gives me supplies or offers to keep an eye out for something, instead of things like saline and epi pens, I’ll ask for any and all suture thread they can find, certain medications, cleaning products etc. This makes roleplay more diverse in how you can interact with people. You’re not limited to just being given actual items you may have no room or use for because someone brings them to you. You get IC items you can use and would be in need of. Learn how to do certain procedures and how tools are used. Sometimes you may have to pause and say “I need to look this up”. Look up information online. Surgery guides, suture guides, etc. As long as you understand the process you can follow it and learn. WTF is this medical term? Google it. Learn about careers, learn about surgeries, learn about what tools you use and how. You don’t have to know everything by any means, tool names etc. Just get a basic concept of what is done during specific things and how would you go about rping it. Describing RP Description wise, you want things to be simple. I’m not going to sit in game and go: “She flips through a book, checking a chart. Then after sifting through some suture packages, she double checks one. Taking the 0.3 Pele Co. triple thread suture material with antibiotics properties, specific for organ suturing, back to the table.” That’s just too much for both my-not-actual-medical-field-self and for anyone else who I’ve lost already due to ‘wtf is she talking about.’ The much easier way; “She pulls out a book, and after double checking a chart in it, flips through a large amount of suture packets. Finding the right one, she double checks it against the chart and takes it back to the operating table.” I do something similar with medicines. You may not always know certain medications off hand, and doses? Nope. Painkiller, non-penicillin painkiller, muscle relaxant, etc. Much easier. Roleplay measuring the dosage in a syringe. If you want to get specific and have the right information, go for it. But don’t expect everyone to know it or to understand what you mean for rp. You will be learning and some people may know more or less than you do. The point is to have fun while being able to get a story across. Single Items vs. Kits So the awesome thing in this world, is we make things in kits. Medical supplies especially. You can have a kit for just about anything. Most places even have special kits with tools just to do that thing, so suture, or specific kinds of surgeries for example. Lots of hospital websites sell both Emergency Survival Kits as well as Procedure Trays etc. Here are some examples of items I’ve found. 50 person trauma first aid kit- trauma kit instruction sheet first aid guidebook first aid reference emergency document pouch folding stretcher (5) triage tags heavy-duty rubber gloves sanizide bottle (10) pairs latex gloves (15) single use thermometers (14) dust masks (2) 12- hour light sticks (12) biohazard bags writing tablet pens (5) disposable blankets (8) cardboard splints (3) triage bandage w safety pins (40 packets) triple antibiotic ointment (2 pints) hydrogen peroxide (2) sterile absorbent cotton roll (1) sodium chloride irrigation solution (10) 4oz water pouches (15) ABD pads, 8" x 10" sterile (100) Adhesive bandages, 3⁄4" x 3" plastic (3) elastic bandages, 2" x 4-1⁄2 yds (3) elastic bandages, 4" x 4-1⁄2 yds.

It will not contain everything needed, but it will include the essential tools to deliver a safe, efficient anesthetic. The bag can be divided into two compartments A and B [Figure 4] and each compartment has two sides, the bag can contain limited supply of the most commonly needed anesthesia supply materials, from IV line placement to a difficult airway management tools replacing the regular OR anesthesia supply cart with a much compact and easily mobile item The Sentinel® Chest Trauma Kit is a comprehensive set of products that deliver an enhanced level of user confidence and improve casualty outcomes when faced with symptoms of tension pneumothorax, the third leading cause of preventable traumatic death.1 For open chest wounds, the Sentinel® Chest Seal maintains static placement and ensures effective channeling for the simultaneous release of blood and air.

Yes third world countries do not have good health care or resources. Yet humanitarian groups have been working for years to deal with ways around that problem. While things usually would not be very good, remember that there was a lot of relief aid sent this direction. Honestly I don’t have the energy to care about this part of the guide. There are a lot of resources you can dig up about groups that help third world countries with medical stuff. Quality healthcare is available http://www.alternet.org/story/79768/doctor_proves_that_quality_health_care_is_possible_in_the_third_world A lot of items are also donated to third world countries. Thankfully medical innovation is very advanced for these areas to help with all of the problems. Debbie Teodorescu demonstrating a prototype of the SurgiBox she invented, which creates a sterile field around a surgical patient so doctors can operate in unsterile conditions, with fellow team member Robert Smalley. PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER MURRAY The SurgiBox can be carried in a backpack and uses a pump, to sterilize the air inside the box, that can be operated manually if there is no electricity. Dr. Teodorescu and her colleagues are still refining the design and working to keep the cost as low as possible. Ultimately, they hope the SurgiBox will save users so much, by reducing infections that it pays for itself.” Universal Anesthesia Machine http://medicalfuturist.com/the-10-most-innovative-health-technologies-saving-millions-in-the-developing-world/ Eco-Cooler In developing areas without electricity, soaring temperatures can leave huts unbearably hot. Eco-Cooler, a low-cost cooling system created from recycled plastic bottles, helps solve the issue by drawing cool air into homes. The cooler is made of halved plastic bottles on a board, which is then installed like a window. When in place, each bottle's neck compresses the hot breeze, cooling it down and dropping temperatures inside a hut as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Hemafuse In emergency situations and during childbirth, blood transfusions are often necessary to save a person's life. But in poor nations, access to a safe, reliable blood supply is relatively rare, leading to preventable deaths each year. The Hemafuse, from Sisu Global Health, takes the donation and storage barriers out of blood transfusions, recycling a person's own blood back into their body. The low-cost device acts like a large syringe, collecting blood and filtering it internally to remove clots and other particulates. The blood can then be deposited into a blood bag, where it can be pumped back into a patient's body. Paper Centrifuge Centrifuges, or machines that rapidly separate fluids, are critical pieces of laboratory technology, especially in developing countries where they can help detect diseases like malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis. Inspired by the whirligig, a children’s toy, Stanford bioengineers created a 20-cent centrifuge made of paper, twine, and plastic powered by humans (no electricity required). Blood is simply placed into a slot in the white disc (see below), and the “paperfuge” can separate plasma from red blood cells after about 90 seconds of rhythmically tugging on the twine.

Solar-Powered Medical Sterilizer In developing countries, about 33 percent of patients suffer from infections at the site of their surgery—a rate nine times higher than in the developed world. Researchers at Rice University tackled this issue by creating the Sterile Box, an all-in-one, off-the-grid sterilization station inside a 20-foot shipping container. Sterile Box houses everything doctors and nurses might need to prepare surgical instruments for safe use, including a water system for decontamination as well as a solar-powered pressure chamber for steam sterilization. Because it’s self-sustaining, the sterilization unit could work anywhere, but its most effective in areas where there isn’t reliable electricity or safe drinking water like developing countries or post-disaster areas.

It was designed by Jordane Vernet, a graduate of École cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL) and member of Sterilux, and integrates the sterilization technology that Spaltenstein developed. Designed as a box with a quartz glass on the top, the SteriBox is placed in a machine that generates ultraviolet (UV) light. Only a small amount of water – less than a milliliter – is needed per sterilization cycle. Essentially, the design uses UV light to turn the air’s oxygen into ozone. The items to be sterilized do not require any kind of preparation or wrapping. They are placed inside the SteriBox, and UV light shines through the glass fitting. This generates ozone, which in turn sterilizes the medical equipment. The process simulates the oxygen-ozone cycle in the earth’s stratosphere, where ozone is used as means of converting UV radiation into heat. The sterilization is further amplified by the generation of hydroxyl radicals from water, which are powerful oxidants and can destroy even the most resistant microorganisms. …. Sterilizing surgical tools in hospitals is a routine procedure in private healthcare, but it is difficult to do in public hospitals and emergency and disaster health care units in developing countries. Sterilux’s system is primarily targeted to countries that do not have access to conventional sterilization equipment. However, it will also prove essential to sites where mobile sterilization is required, e.g. temporary emergency centers and clinics.” Iwanejko Electronics s-teemer.com S-teemer (HandyShower) is a multipurpose, light and simple portable valve, making it especially convenient in post-disaster conditions. The solution serves as a portable hand tap, a shower or a bidet (shattaf) in one pen-like device. It ensures maximum water efficiency which is particularly important in water-scarce areas. Hand washing valve may be pedal operated, hence contactless and minimises the risk of spreading bacteria - a distinctive quality among portable valves. PneumoDart® The PneumoDart is a reliable solution for treating a tension pneumothorax injury, or sucking chest wound. Our robust innovation helps you to get it right, first time. It offers better efficiency, safety and important physical features. Typical methods for treating this kind of injury include the application of a plastic seal over the chest wound to inserting a needle catheter into the chest to drain air out of the chest and relieve pressure. However, successful application of a traditional pneumothorax needle has proven difficult. Our needle is 3.25” which is the optimal length as recommended by the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) who inspired the PneumoDart and we developed it with the US Department of Defense during a robust testing and evaluation phase. Reality vs. Game So there are a lot of things you have to keep in mind. As much as you may learn a lot of things, it’s all only really a guideline when it comes to roleplaying. • Trauma/war surgeon doctors do need to know how to put a patient under anesthesia safely, but it’s not something they’re supposed to constantly do. In a more appropriate setting, there would always be an anesthesiologist on hand, along with possibly 1-2 nurses for them. The anesthesiologist tells the doctor how long they have etc., not the doctor bossing around the anesthesiologist. There is a delicate line in what the body is willing to take, and that’s the job of the anesthesiologist. The surgeons job is to do what they can in that time period. • Obviously there are going to be very dire circumstances, especially with military, where a surgeon is the only person capable of putting someone under, so they do make sure it is a part of their training. • Game wise, you see doctors and surgeons running around, I’ve met one anesthesiologist and have not seen him since. So, it’s extremely impractical when you have to do surgery on people in game to be trying to go by actual rules of medicine. Like anesthesia machines, they are very complicated. We sort of just ignore their existence or use tiny versions. Can’t be perfect with everything. • It’s the same with medicine etc. The reason before surgery, that you are not allowed to eat or drink for so many hours, is because while under, it is extremely easy for your body to throw up something in your stomach. In this regard one of two things happens, either you choke to death, or get pneumonia. I read a story where a kid had this happen and the surgeon literally grabbed him by the ankles and hung him upside down in an attempt to save him. Thankfully, it sort of worked, poor kid got a nasty case of pneumonia, but lived. Obviously, when we do surgery in game, there is no waiting period, its emergency. So, we tend to toss this rule out the window. • Sterile environments are nearly out the window. Thankfully, this is actually a major part of war surgery. The environment is always contaminated, and the thought of a sterile surgical room is pretty much laughable for them. Obviously a regular surgeon would be petrified at the conditions of a surgery on the field. The surgical area (usually a tent) is kept as clean as possible, and everything is sanitized to the best of their ability. Yet in war surgery, they always treat the wound as if it is infected, because likely, it is. A lot of nasty things get into wounds when they’re from bullets, shrapnel, etc. There is nothing they can do about that except clean it the best they can and give antibiotics. My character always gives antibiotics for a few days to her patients due to this. It is one of the rules in war surgery. While the area the surgery is taking place in could be questionable, it’s the knowledge and skill of the surgeon that will make the impact of how clean the wound ends up being. • People will not react in any ways near reality with wounds. Some may come close, but most won’t. Bullet wounds seem to be people’s favorite thing here. Shoot in the foot, arm, leg, shoulder, etc. What most people don’t realize, is that even a limb shot has a high probability of killing you, depending on the bullet and where you were hit. Bones break, veins and arteries are severed, etc. Also pellet guns have the likelihood of amputating the limb it shot. • Essentially for rp, just don’t expect reality. It won’t happen. Go along as best you can with it. Hospital Items Honestly there is so much, it’s impossible for me to list without adding another 50 pages. Look at your own leisure.

    Note: I'll come back and make the charts bigger later, have to leave for work! Wound Guide for Role Playing This guide is to help understand the actual wounds certain weaponry make, in order to use better judgement in roleplay. Both for attack, and injuries. I’m going to use several books to cover various types of injuries and the damage they cause. This gives you a lot of information to roleplay with in how you decide to use weaponry or wounds. A lot of material is simply going to be copied to make it easier to read and understand. The majority of this book is either quoted directly, or condensed from multiple books. I will be sure to list them all at the end, but this will be too complicated to provide actual cites for each statement. Part 1: anatomy and science of wounds Projectile/Ballistics / Bullets What kind of damage does a bullet actually do? In most RP cases, it’s a straight in, straight out, usually nothing damaged case. The reality couldn’t be more opposite. I do have to think this is in relation though more to how many trigger happy players we have IC. Bullet wounds are far, far more devastating than role played out to be, with makes sense considering too many people are all too happy to simply shoot you. Personally I think a lot more actual study into psychology needs to happen because honestly, that’s not how so many people would be reacting, especially so suddenly. That is another topic though, that of which there are many debates already upon the forms for. So, how does a bullet actually hurt you? Bullets cause damage primarily via crushing, and stretching. The bullet/projectile does damage by first crushing tissue. This hole or missile track represents the so called permanent cavity. Dimension are roughly about the same size for all tissues. After the passage of the projectile, the walls of the permanent cavity are temporarily stretched outward. The maximum tissue displacement is the temporary cavity. Any damage from the temporary cavity is due to stretching the tissue. The result in temporarily displaced tissue is blunt force trauma. Damage is figured by measuring of both. Misconceptions: Some people think that only more modern, higher velocity projectiles produce temporary cavitation. This is NOT true as the diagram below of an 1870-1890 Vetterli deforming bullet. A larger exit-than-entry is not actually evidence for increased velocity. Velocity highest at the smaller entry wound, and less at the greater exit wound. Multiple other factors contribute to the damage the bullet does, including yaw, projectile fragmentation, etc. Construction: Bullet Flight and Kinetic Energy: Once shot, several things affect the bullet in flight that can have large differences between damage. · Spinning and given stability · Distance · Air drag · Crosswind directions · Raindrops hitting bullet · Hitting obstacles before target Yaw: the nose of the bullet moving up and down, away from the line of Flight, and describes an angle with the target surface at impact. Obstacles: bullets routinely hit obstacles during flight, this causes ricochet. Ricochet: the bullet from impact is given a small ‘push’ that destabilizes it. Can create yaw and tumbling. If the push is strong enough, the bullet can even be deformed or broken into fragments before hitting the target, if it hits the target at all. Kinetic Energy Any moving object has kinetic energy. Total kinetic energy Is the potential for causing damage, while transferred kinetic damage is the capacity to cause damage. Actual tissue damage, however, depends on the efficiency of the energy transfer. Kinetic Energy Formula Kinetic Energy Impact Formula If there is no exit, then v(2) = 0, and all kinetic energy has been transferred. If the bullet breaks up into fragments, then the mass (m) also changes, and E(kexp) is modified. · Low energy – knife or hand-energized missiles · Medium energy- handguns · High energy- military or hunting rifles, with a muzzle velocity above 600m/s or a large mass of projectile. Bullet Damage Via Types of Guns: Long Rifle Special NATO 7.62 AK-47 AK-74 357 Magnum JSP 22 CAL FMC (M-193 bullet shot from M-16A 1 assault rifle). .224 Soft-point (M-16) Fragments A moving projectile has kinetic energy. When the projectile enters the human body, it releases energy to the tissues thus causing a wound. There are two types of wounding projectiles: bullets and metallic fragments (or splinters, such as shards and shrapnel). Fragment Wounds Exploding bombs, shells, rockets, grenades, sub munitions, and some landmines, produce metal fragments from the weapon casing (primary projectile). In modern weapons the casing is scored, creating weak points that break off easily on explosion. Other shrapnel can be added such as nails, bolts, steel pellets, or any other metallic debris. Fragments are shot off at very high speed, which decreases rapidly with distance travelled. The farther the victim is from the explosion, the more superficial the wounds. At very close range, multiple high-energy fragments combined with the blast effect create mutilating injuries and are often fatal. Explosions may cause stones or bricks to break up, shatter glass panes, or force of the blast can transport other debris (secondary projectiles). Fragment wounds are usually multiple and the wound tract is always widest at the entry. There may or may not be an exit wound. Explosions/Bombs Explosive blast injuries The detonation of high-energy explosives creates a travelling pressure blast wave in the air, (or in water for underwater explosions). The wave causes rapid and large changes in the outside atmospheric pressure: the positive pressure shock wave is followed by a negative pressure phase (Figure 3.5). Immediately behind the pressure wave is a mass movement of air: the blast wind. As the blast wave passes any unprotected person it affects all parts of the body, especially those normally containing air. A victim of blast may not have any external injury. A single, large explosion may injure many people at the same time. Explosions in a closed space (building, bus, etc.) are more fatal than those out in the open. Categorization of blast injuries Blast injuries are commonly categorized into four types. 1. Primary These are direct pressure effects. Rupture of the tympanic membrane is the most common injury. Rupture of the lung alveoli and their capillaries (“blast lung”) is the most lethal injury amongst survivors. 2. Secondary These injuries include missile wounds. Fragments may arise from the bomb casing or contents (primary missiles). Home-made bombs (improvised explosive devices, known as IED) may be packed with nuts and bolts, screws and ball bearings. In addition, the blast wind may mobilize various objects (secondary missiles) that then cause penetrating wounds. 3. Tertiary These effects are directly due to the blast wind. It can cause total body disintegration in the immediate vicinity of the explosion; traumatic amputations and evisceration further away. The wind can make buildings collapse or throw people against objects. Trauma may be blunt, crush or penetrating. 4. Quaternary Miscellaneous types of harm due to burns, asphyxia from carbon monoxide or toxic gases, or the inhalation of dust, smoke or contaminants. The various injuries caused by major blasts cover a whole spectrum of trauma and many patients suffer several injuries from a variety of effects: i.e. multiple injuries from one single weapon system. Other situations of blast injuries The blast wave travels more rapidly and much further in water than in air. Blast injuries in water occur at greater distances and can be more severe. Moreover, underwater explosions tend to cause pure primary blast injury. A “fuel air explosive” – the liquid explosive material is dispersed in the air like an aerosol and then ignited – also tends to bring about pure primary blast injury and quaternary effects due to the consumption of all oxygen in the nearby air. The blast effect of a marine mine exploding below an icy surface, or the “deck slap” of a ship hit by a torpedo, produces a shock wave that can severely fracture the bones of anyone on deck or inside the ship. Similarly, some anti-tank mines send a blast wave through the floor of the vehicle causing closed fractures of the foot and leg. The foot appears like a “bag of bones” inside intact skin, which was described in World War I as “pied de mine”: a mine foot. Anti-personnel blast mines have a local blast effect, vaporizing the tissues of the contact foot, as described previously. Burns TBC

    “Humanity does not suffer from the disease of wrong beliefs but humanity suffers from the contagious nature of the lack of belief. If you have no magic with you it is not because magic does not exist, but it is because you do not believe in it. Even if the sun shines brightly upon your skin every day, if you do not believe in the sunlight, the sunlight for you does not exist.” ― C. JoyBell C. “There may never be another evacuation… This is your last and only chance.” Assumptions from the world slowly being infected by the virus, it seemed like we had a chance to go home and be with our loved ones. But that would never happen. Those who were at the airfield knew that in their gut there was more left to be completed. Whether it was to continue the mission, or naturally offer aid. Others didn’t even get the opportunity to board the aircraft. Left to believe and know they were to spend the rest of their life in a country where one wrong move could get you killed. The less fortunate would only have a few minutes to take in the view of their escape as the thunderous roar of the propellers hummed into nothing but silence back to Miroslavl. And eventually, maybe home... Those who saw and heard the aircraft realised they’d never forget that sound. The sound of escape and freedom, fading away into the valley. Those who knew they had that one chance felt a fire slowly being put out in their hearts. The hope and faith they had was dimming into nothingness. Everyone’s passion and desires to solve the problem started to become less of a priority and more a chore. “There may never be another evacuation… This is your last and only chance.” You’d never forget those words if you heard them. The replay in the back of your head until you break down into tears or snap at the person besides you. We will probably never get to go home and see our families. Most of us wished we could go back in time to give that goodbye hug a little tighter and a little longer. If only we knew this was going to be the last time we would ever see them again… But in those dim moments of hope, the almost two and a half months spent here, you really got to know who your true family were. Even if they weren’t by blood. Even if we couldn’t keep our loved ones safe at home, this gave us an opportunity to make things right. Even if it wasn’t the same. After we arrived to South Zagoria, high command went silent on us for a few months. Most of the Peacekeepers and civilians were losing hope. Others had to pick up the pieces. We had to trust each other to get through this. Otherwise it would be a lost cause. The family we made from trust and compassion gave us a place to have an open opinion… without a gun to our face. We corrected each other on a better path so mistakes could be avoided. Though most of us didn’t see eye to eye, we still stuck together with the bond we had. Through the hardest times, we got still through it.

    Went into a burning building fighting a fire, then my tank ran out of oxygen and was replaced with nothing but smoke. I tried finding my way out but It became harder and harder to breathe and see as I moved throughout what seemed like a never ending hallway til the point I couldn't breathe at all. Then I woke up.

    Verdict: @CrazyStryker [Invalid Kill (on sight)] Not Guilty @CrazyStryker [Invalid Kill (on sight) + Attempted Invalid kill (on sight)] Guilty @Javoo [BadRP + Invalid kill (on sight) ] Guilty @SoalXtractor [Unnecessary OOC] Guilty Explanation: This situation started off with Jerimie Adair’s character being captured by CrazyStryker and his crew. The situation ends up with Jerimie being released from their custody and the two hour revenge timer comes into play here as Jerimie plots his revenge by hiring CaptainTorch’s bounty hunter character nicknamed “Bran”. Little did Jerimie know that Bran was actually one of CrazyStryker’s men. The bounty hunter soon leaves after receiving his assignment. After CaptainTorch (Bran) links up with his mates, they work on a way to double cross Jerimie. However they wanted to ensure that it would look believable so they decided that they needed to wound CaptainTorch’s character so it looked as if he was in a fight. Alongside that they decided to take away fingers from Javoo’s character; Laz Kelly. This entire thing is rather excessive both OOC and in RP. OOCly because you actually shot CaptainTorch’s character as seen in the following logs: 07:42:17 | "Alex Stryker SHOT Alex Menendez by UMP45 into LeftLeg." 07:42:17 | "Alex Stryker SHOT Alex Menendez by UMP45 into LeftLeg." 07:42:17 | "Alex Stryker SHOT Alex Menendez by UMP45 into LeftLeg." This really wasn’t necessary as it could’ve potentially killed him. You could’ve emoted it through text by typing *Takes aim at Alex Menendez’s left leg and gently squeezes the trigger with his right/left index finger, firing a round at it.* On top of that, Javoo’s left fingers were amputated as means to prove the legitimacy of the kills made by the bounty hunter. That on itself is rather extreme, considering how far we are currently in the apocalypse, however the badRP rule break does NOT come from that. BadRP happens when you go into a firefight approximately thirty minutes after your -forced- amputation. Javoo, since two of your fingers on the left hand were willingly amputated, Staff will require you to roleplay out this disability from here on out. Ignoring this will be considered a rule break and anyone noticing it are within their right to report you for it. @CrazyStryker during this firefight you shoot Jerimie’s character which eventually leads to his death. The kill on him is invalid since you gained no valid rights from the contract being put on you & your friend. In order for you to gain these rights he would have had to pose a direct threat to your characters. The shooting of Anthony Leston has also been deemed as invalid as he was never a part of the fight nor had been initiated on for you to be able to gun him down in the manner that you did. It will however only fall under attempted Invalid kill as you managed to patch him up and continued RPing with him. @Javoo You shoot SebbePWNYou’s character during this altercation and he then dies. Sebbe’s character had not performed any hostile acts against you or any of your group members. He only started to shoot back once your group members decided to fire upon the compound. Therefore your kill on him is invalid. Seeing as there wasn’t any RP with Sebbe’s character what so ever, this kill is deemed Invalid Kill (on Sight). 7.1 Killing another player must always be justified with role play. See also rule 5.3. 7.2 Players gain kill rights when a hostile action is taken against them or their group, or when their characters life is directly at risk. These rights last for 2 hours after last interaction during the hostile situation and can be used as long as their use do not conflict with any other rules like NLR or NVFL. @shhhhlp's the kill on you has been deemed valid as you initiated on CrazyStriker and he used his rights to turn and shoot you. Shhhhlp during this case it is clear that you’re upset by the whole encounter as you felt his movement nor actions were realistic and you put up this report, this is further proven by the way you acted when Nihoooo confirmed that the kill itself was valid. In the future please keep calm and allow the staff to handle the rule breaks that are being argued as heated comments never work in your favour. @SoalXtractor, we also need to address and caution you for the OOC messages you made in game; 08:10:09 | Chat("Anthony Leston": //that was a kos wasnt it? 08:10:54 | Chat("Anthony Leston": // and an abuse of game mecanics shot while eating! Staff would like for you to know that OOC chat is not there for you to post what you personally may find to be rule breaks. We have our report section for that. Please remember this from here on out. 5.4 OOC communication can be done only through text chat and only when absolutely necessary. You may not use OOC chat to casually chat with other players in game. You may not speak OOC using ingame voice. Use the "//" prefix to indicate OOC text communication. Outcome: @CrazyStryker [Invalid Kill] No Punishment @CrazyStryker [Invalid Kill (on sight) + Attempted Invalid kill (on sight)] 7 day ban and 10 warning points. @Javoo [ KoS + BadRP] 7 day ban and 10 warning points + Verbal warning @SoalXtractor [Unnecessary OOC] Verbal Warning (Caution) (@Red, @Eagle & @Jade)

    (Listen to this to add the emotion to story - https://puu.sh/xILyI/42962e80c6.mp3) A mild ticking noise would echo from the abandoned room with a wooden grandfather clock hidden somewhere. Crimson red curtains draped in front of a fogged window as dust specks feathered down to land on the floor. The sunlight dimmed dramatically with a chilly feeling. Well, that’s how most stories start; others would begin with ‘Dear Diary’. But this isn’t like most stories. This starts with a family feud corrupting from false hope and wonder. Now most scenes would picture a camera gracefully flying down the corridor and fading into the argument of a mother and daughter screaming at each other. But that wouldn’t explain the full picture. Imagine being give a white canvas with nothing but a smudge, would you see it as art or an unfinished picture? Onto the argument. Two small figures stand in the middle of an apartment living room, decorated to almost look Japanese inspired with minor italian tweaks. The walls bloomed with hand painted cherry blossoms and dark wooden book shelves. The utensils and furniture cushioned to give a warm vibe to balance out the colour chart of the room. The pink tones complimented the dark chocolate colours inside the whole apartment room including the one or two red books on the bookshelf itself. One woman looked to be in her mid fifties; crows feet cracking at the sides of her eyes from old age. Her clothes draped from her fragile body as her arms tightly hugged across her chest. The other woman with tightly tied back blond hair would be squaring up to the other woman, pointing at a certain picture decorating the wall. The only picture that seemed to even be decorating the walls at all; the picture was of a man in a chef’s coat. Holding up a cookery book stating the title ‘Giovanni’s Family Secrets’. Both of them seemed to be of a strong asian decent, certainly the older woman but not the one screaming in her face. Something had happened and for some reason no one would know how it started until they were told. This argument started from twenty nine long years of a woman’s belief that was false and untrue, this would be the thought by the elder woman. This would perhaps explain why the young female is yelling in pure anger. Or was it anger? Or was it just hurt? Pain? Suffering? The young female goes by the name of Faith Capella. The picture she pointed at is of her father. And the argument they seemed to be having was caused by her mother, Miha Asura. Miha, the elder woman had believed Giovanni Capella was going to come back home and had lost contact after getting cold feet of having a child with a woman he was using for sexual intercourse and the publishment of his book. The woman strongly knew he loved her. If only she knew… Faith on the other hand saw much different. She grew up as an only child with nothing but her mother to guide her. The long daunting nights of sitting in her mother’s workplace reading books from romance stories to murder thrillers. Some of the stories gave a common depth to what Miha was living through. In this genre, a romantic tragedy. Faith had accepted her father would never meet her face to face. And with Miha’s false hope and securement, it hurt Faith. Nothing hurts more than seeing the person you love suffer from demonic tendencies. “Mama! You need to fucking stop right now!” The young blond cuts off Miha whilst she stares lovingly at the author photo of Giovanni Capella; talking about how such a kind person he is and she knew he was busy with his cooking. Her eyes snapped into a shocked expression, twisting over to her daughter who had a flustered red berried face. The young blond’s fist ball up in anger. Snatching the frame off of the wall. Her unknown father smiling as if it was to provoke her emotion more. Tears escape the female close to her thirties with such hatred towards a man she had never met... “This man, he’s nothing! He left you and you’re fucking crazy to think he’s ever going to come back! You need help! It’s not healthy and you’re not right in the fucking head! Every day you look at that smug grin painted on your wall!...” Faith rattles the photo frame in her hand to prove her point. A few creased lines of her brow as she frowns. Miha extends her pale hands almost ready to catch the valuable picture of her Romeo. Faith continues, her voice almost breaking from how she strains her voice “...And you stare at it! Like he loved you!?” She mimics, mocking Miha in some way from the past, “Papa will be home soon sakura no hana, he will be., I promise!...” Her voices returns to normal as she stresses in her shouting manor, “Don’t make promises you can never keep Miha! You stupid woman!” And with that, the golden frame holding the editorial author’s photo would collapse with force to the ground. The glass smashed against the floor with a shattering noise, enough to even replicate Miha’s heart crumbling into nothing. Not only did she realise perhaps her daughter was telling the truth, but that she may of lost the last thing Giovanni left her. A beautiful baby girl. Underneath the frame, the glass that peppered the floor would tear the photo minorly, causing bare to minimum damage but still showed the wrath provided from Faith. Miha sobs, collapsing to her knees as she smears the golden frame from the wooden floorboard. Blinded by hurt tears as she turns the photo over to view the slightly torn image of her loved one. By the time she looked up, Faith had gone. Whether she said something was unknown as everything around her went quiet as her heart broke. Meanwhile when Miha had gone to pick up the photo, her daughter stood and watched. In disbelief would be a word that couldn’t be consumed. It was more speechless that she’d still even care for a photo that remembered her of nothing but abandonment. And at the time, Faith didn’t realise leaving would be the final straw, abandoning her mother when she really needed her the most. Instead Faith spat through her teeth, almost a snarl past her lip, “Get yourself sorted out… You’re embarrassing yourself.” By then Faith would have travelled a few feet away to the front door of the apartment, taking one last look of the woman sobbing on the ground with the picture burrowed into her chest with a tight hold before slamming the door. The corridor seems longer than it did coming in, almost with a chilling feeling to follow along with it. But nothing stopped the rage from making Faith feel any different at the time. Just hot sweaty tears travelling down her cheeks from the anger she pursued with frustration. Rubbing her petite hands over her face before finding it hard to breath. Something in the back of Faith’s mind told her she was wrong, told her she needed to go back. That never happened. And somewhere, in some house, that grandfather clock that ticked away waited for the day and time where she’d return home and apologise. To be continued...

    Instead of saying "good luck" or leaving a comment with an attitude, I guess I'll leave proper feedback. There are a few things specifically, but alas. The Lore; ★ You have a good idea & story going. NATO from the current lore have been having a really shitty time both IC as well as OOC, and I think many notice it. @Bravo343, you did a great job making the group & doing the dirty work. I would suggest going back through the lore and rereading it, and touching a few things up here & there as you do so. It's a great start, but just a few adjustments could be made. This includes: Try to make the titles (The Beginning of the End, What do we do now?, To Rise, et cetera) a bit bigger. Try font size 16 or 18. Add more graphics, edit the graphics to look nicer. Fix any spelling, grammar & capitalization. Fix the spacing. Under the "Relations" section; ★ Maybe consider making the "Friend", "Assumed Friend", "Neutral", "Suspect" & "Hostile" titles a tad bit bigger & maybe bold. You could try out about font size 16 or 18. It might make the thread look a bit nicer. Under the "Objectives" section; ★ I would recommend making the "In Character" & "Out of Character" headers a tad bit smaller than the "Objectives" header. This might help to make the thread look a tad bit nicer. ★ I would also recommend perhaps putting bullets before each individual goal, as well as perhaps putting a space between each one. Again, this is mainly for cosmetic purposes and the choice is overall in your hands. Under the "Brothers in Arms" section; ★ You could possibly try to make this look a little nicer. I'm personally a huge fan of what most other groups do with character portraits. You could try to do something similar. Examples: Raspad Vosstaniye || Jánská || In Viridian The Name; ★ The name was a good idea & it's understandable that you didn't know that a group had been named that in the past. Some of you don't like the latin name which is okay. It does look like Quite Delicious after all. ♥ Take your time thinking of a name. Brainstorm together and take a vote on the name together. Shame on the people who literally got so salty about it. They've been in this community far longer than you guys have, I would've thought that maybe they'd be more understanding. Your Attitudes; ★ As I previously mentioned, you guys have gone through too much bullshit so far. You've all got bad tastes in your mouths which is entirely understandable, but don't let that knock the fun out of this for you. Like @Dew said, remember that this is a game. You're meant to have fun. This isn't supposed to feel like a job to you, and if it does, it's going to ruin it not only for yourselves but everyone around you as well. I know that you're big, tough & scary soldiers but remember that you're not going to win every firefight. Remember that there's nothing wrong in surrendering and having a bit of fun, hostile torture RP or whatever. Try to work out compromises with your enemies. Make deals. It doesn't have to be a constant battle like you think. It's okay to swallow your pride sometimes. Talk things out with one another. Make decisions together. You're not always going to agree with one another, but the least you can do is try to listen and respect each other's thoughts & opinions. Your group will fall quickly if you don't, and things will be taken OOC and it's not going to be pleasant. But, yeah. I think that's all. Again, good luck to you guys & keep your heads up. Have fun. o7

    Since @Taryn and @Kriss Blade have come to an agreement where the report would be closed and Kriss Blade would apply for the Mentor Program, we will close this report. Had this report stayed open however, Kriss Blade would most likely been found guilty of an Invalid Kill as he had no rights to kill anyone in this scenario. If Kriss Blade does not follow through with his participation in the mentor program, this report will be reevaluated and he will be found guilty of the rules broken here. Using the mentor program as an excuse to escape punishment is not acceptable and as such we expect Kriss Blade to hold up his end of the bargain. /closed

    Verdict: @Sivister [ Invalid Kills - roleplayed x3 ]: Guilty [ Troll RP ]: Guilty Explanation: In this situation the OP and his dynamic group were walking from the construction site to the pub in Severograd. They talked for a little bit with the accused and his dynamic group before Sivister walked up to them and killed both of them. 17 minutes later Thoros walked up to the same location were the OP and Spanners died. According to the accused and to Thoros they exchanged a few words before the accused killed him too. This section regards the following rule: 7.2 Players gain kill rights when a hostile action is taken against them or their group, or when their characters life is directly at risk. These rights last for 2 hours after last interaction during the hostile situation and can be used as long as their use do not conflict with any other rules like NLR or NVFL. 7.3 Kill rights are only shared between group members if the group's members are within 500m of the situation taking place or have a direct line of sight. @Sivister, You killed @Sandy & @Spanners because you thought they were involved in the torture of @LadyInBlue which happened at least 2 hours and 20 minutes ago. As seen in the logs both were not even online when the torture session occurred. On top of that you were also not online or present when LadyInBlue was tortured. The rule clearly states that you have to be within 500 meters of the situation taking place or in direct line of sight which you were not since you were not even online when the situation occurred. Instead of just ending the RP, you should have initiated on both of them and then you would have noticed in the interrogation that it wasn't in fact them who participated in hurting your friend. You had absolutely no rights to kill them. @Sivister, You also killed @Thoros because you thought again that he was the one who hurt your friend a few hours earlier. He was in fact online at the time when the torture session occurred but even if he participated you had absolutely no rights to kill him since it was already more than 2 hours ago and you never gained rights in the first place since you were not present nor online. In total you killed 3 people you never gained kill rights for. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The admin team has received video evidence of another RP situation which happened a couple of weeks ago. The next section regards the following rule: 5.2 Your character must follow our lore and their back story must fit well within the current lore. Your character must behave realistically and appropriately to the different situations you participate in. @Sivister, You were watching a few people in a hospital performing an operation as seen in this video here. While you were standing at the window you were constantly making vomiting noises. You refused to go away even though people told you several times to leave so you can't see blood or similar things. But you didn't leave or stop with those noises. It doesn't make any sense why your character would stay there vomiting for at least 7 minutes straight up saying that he has to watch and puke. We can understand that people can have a uneasy reaction when in the sight of blood or gore, but what confuses us the most is why you forced yourself to watch and make excessive vomiting noises disrupting all RP that was going on for several minutes. A few minutes after that you were entering the hospital crawling through different rooms for no reason at all as seen in this video here. We are a serious roleplaying community, we expect our community members to act realistically at all times and from what you have been showing in these videos nothing about this is serious nor realistic. You have already been found guilty of two rule breaks for BadRP and NVFL, both being fairly recent. We have even recommended the mentor program to you, which you refused to take part in. At this point we have lost all hope for you to learn from your mistakes and are not willing to give you another chance. With that being said you will be permanently removed from our community. Good luck elsewhere. Outcome: @Sivister [ Invalid Kills - roleplayed x3 & Troll RP]: Permanently banned from the community @Lyca & @Ender
