    Thanks to every single person I met in my way last two days. But I don't know who are you in the website so I couldn't mention you. The traders and the people in there like Mason Thompson, Rex Wheeler, the chicken master @XxGrAipYyxX and of course all the yellow armbands' group. Specially Tully (@Steck), Tully Junior (@Jonas Gj) , Amy ( @Oisin) and Anton (@Grimnir) Thomas Krueger. I thought you were going down from the car to kick my ass. The docs' group: Thanks again for the RP. @Malet @Harvey and Co. Thanks to came to help us. But I have always in mind my family and group. You made my day. @AlanBrian @[email protected] [email protected]@[email protected] @FieJaxon @Blackburn @TiviylScratch and @DrMax. @bloodcrusader @pijkaCZ(dead but in our hearts) https://clips.twitch.tv/CrazyBlazingLasagnaHeyGirl See you in game!

    Enjoyed the RP from @Grimnir @Steck @Jonas Gj @Doc Holiday tonight, what a turn of events. Also from @Eddie Sorella and @Jean... and of course... @FieJaxon Apologies once again. To be fair, the RP was actually decent. Silver line in every cloud. I think honestly something like that would happen, as Skylar is young and has no firearm training. So, it made sense, but it shouldn't of happened. But still, decent RP.

    Probably gonna be spending less time around here. I have to get a new job to help cover costs or else I won't have a house to live in anymore. o7 maybe I guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Edit: I'll stay as active as I can, but I don't know what that will look like until I find a job. Not leaving, not giving up, just might have to actually get a life for a little bit.

    I'm rather at a loss for words right now... Genuinely. Congratulations to everyone and thank you all so much for showing love and support to each other. I absolutely cannot make any claim of being the only one who deserves either of these awards. So many people like me and my fellow nominees have never received a warning point in their entire time here, as well as others who didn't get any in just the previous year. On another note, to my dearest friends @AlwaysGamer and @Dustup. These two have stuck it out with me in the Mentor Program since day one and deserve every bit as much credit to its success and survival as I do. So to them and every other community member who has ever held the Mentor banner under their name; thank you so very much for helping make it what it is today. Every little bit has made the difference you guys .... now the color scheme of my name and avatar are a mess and need fixing. thanks everyone ❤

    Learning from other fictions , stories, games, shows, films... if you go out of your way to ballance good and evil, there is no investment... no... apologise, there is less investment. Good and Evil? Just a quota to be made. Do I believe there may be an issue with good guy groups and bad guy groups? Perhaps, but I do not believe the restriction of one over the other till ballance is reached would help anything. As then you would have but a clear cut line down the centre of the playing field, clear enemies and allies... That is not what RP is about... 2 distinct camps fighting it out against each other. The interesting conflicts are ones with uneasy alliances, betrayals potentially around every corner, no clear winner in sight and defo no definitive good and evil side... Groups joining together against common enemies, with one hand behind their backs with knives ready... small neutral groups banding together to weather the storm of large conflict going on around them, the subjugation of "good" groups by "evil" groups to gain an upper hand in a larger conflict etc etc.... I want more of that ^ And no amount of good and evil group restriction is going to cause it... With that I believe groups should be limited in one thing only.... Size... 10-15 people tops.... sad thing is we have only 60 slots on a server, and when 1/3 of the people online are part of the same group it is a sign of stagnation waiting to happen. Reduce group sizes, and those who cannot join the super awesome mega successful groups due to size constraints can make their own with the countless other people who are now also looking for groups. It might cause us to regain some diversity in the groups again, and we might actually see more conflict and interaction as different groups with different goals and ideologies interact with one another... So I call for more scrutiny of group goals in the poll above, but also push the idea we need to restrict group sizes if we ever want to see this unballance of "bad groups" to "good groups" solved...

    (I highlighted snip-its from your very short response above, and have linked parts to the lore that I think can be used to argue against you.) I mean... while you're right in saying that South Zagoria was one of the poorest regions, the lore also states: "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 as Chernarus got its name in the international headlines and people who didn’t know the country existed before 2009 became aware of it." (DayZRP Lore) I don't think it's fair to say that it would be irrational when the lore states itself that it had boomed in popularity since previous years, and tourism picked up. Not to mention, I can think of at least two scenarios where a class might travel to the country: a) a history class diving deeper into one of the more recent wars in the history of that world, and b) a collection of students from the same club or class who traveled abroad for relief work. The lore very clearly states that "revitalization efforts were planned to revamp the area", meaning relief work wouldn't be too far-fetched an idea. Not to mention, people travel to "poor, recovering provinces" all the time for relief/mission work -- I've done it myself, and it's really not that hard to consider that South Zagoria could be in a similar situation (if not BETTER than most). Additionally, in this fictional world, a very real civil war took place 8 years prior to the infection. It makes sense to me to conclude that history teachers/professors might be interested in learning more, considering that the country itself has stabilized since the war and travel to it had been made easier due to the booming tourism. TLDR: Saying that it would "never work" is a very broad stoke... and honestly, using that brush to paint that picture is very, very off-putting. I'm pretty fucking disappointed, actually.

    They do have a tourist industry. Sunflowers. haven't you seen the roadsigns and all the fields of dead sunflowers? Also come to think of it, haven't you seen all the nature signs and all the summer camps too? @PCJames Perhaps the principal swindled the students and took most of the money from the trip and used a small portion to send them to a cheaper location.

    Hey guys!! Since starting out, a LOT of people have PM'd us mentors asking us if we could share with them a list of RP "do's and donts" for basics to get them started on their RP journey. We of course give them our best, but I figure why stop with private messages? Let me post here what I've been sharing with some of my mentees, as well as add it to the OP of this thread to be used as a reference to anyone who wishes to take a look. Feel free to shout out more simple tips you feel should be added on! Again, these are just a few basics we feel that newcomers should keep in mind. Staying in character - This (in my mind at least) is the most important aspect of ensuring the enjoyment of your role playing experience. Honestly nothing is more annoying than being around a person who is constantly using //OOC text chat while you are trying to RP. Only use it in absolute emergency such as asking permission to log out or to let someone know you have technical issues. If you see a glitch happening or if someone says something questionable to you that would compromise yourself staying in character, I would recommend ignoring it and continue your role play. **IMPORTANT** Accidents in DayZ happen all of the time, such as glitch deaths for example. Don't freak out at all or breach OOC if they do. Simply keep yourself in character and react in a way that your character would. Also something to keep in mind; if you do happen to witness someone die from a glitch or they fall from a rooftop, I personally will role play out the person being injured / unconscious and RP carrying the person away from the scene. To flat out say "oh god they fell and died" would be powergaming their character when it was a game bug / accident and they probably did not want their character to die. Keeping yourself immersed - This one could piggy-back off of staying in character. Ignore any visual bugs you may encounter in the game, honestly just pretend that they don't exist. Unless it pertains to you and is an emergency, ignore when other people use //OOC text and try your best to avoid using it yourself. If you are in teamspeak with someone and there are other people around, be sure to prioritize the characters you are around in game over the people in your teamspeak. I personally will mute my sound in TS whenever I am in the presence of another role player and it helps significantly. Role play with the environment / infected / wildlife. Heck even talk to yourself in game while casually walking down the road mumbling what thoughts your character might be having. Anything that you could further do to enhance the immersion of yourself BEING your character. Use text emotes - I am a full advocate of people using text RP to further supplement their RP experience as well as those who are around them in game. Perhaps you're sitting by a water pump to get yourself a drink. Type out an emote depicting what and how your character is doing that action. A simple example being: *Holds his/her hands under the running water and splashes some on his/her face.* Maybe you're talking with someone and they say something questionable to you. A personal favorite of mine would be to emote *Glances curiously at the man with a raised eyebrow.* - Something as simple as that to show a physical action for others to see and act upon. Role play isn't always limited to VOIP or through the use of physical in game items. Make sure that your backstory makes sense with the lore of the setting we're playing in and always have something that your character can talk about when there are those odd moments of silence where no one is saying anything. Perhaps a childhood memory from you characters past or maybe you see a place / item in game that reminds your character of something or someone. Anything to strike up a conversation. The more in depth your character backstory is, the easier it will be to talk fluidly with other survivors you encounter. On the topic of talking with other survivors - try your best to avoid the generic "how did you get here in this country?" or "what did you do before all of this went to shit?" Then the all time worst being "are you hungry? I've got some extra food?" or "I need these types of bullets do you have any?" - Topics like those tend to bore people to death. The second two I mentioned will usually cause major eye rolls. Instead bring up something more relevant like something that may have just happened in game or maybe talk about something that your character is trying to do (refer to your characters personal goals if they have any) - You could warn others about a massive hoard of infected you saw down the street or that there were some shady people hanging about in the next town over. Something like this will for sure strike up a more interesting conversation. Avoid metagaming information at all costs. Anything that you as a person know but you character does NOT, you should never act upon with your character. For example you could pulse check a person and find out who they are, but obviously do not address them by that name you just got unless you've been told it personally by them or someone else in game. On the subject of "pulse checking" other players. If you're going to do it, be as subtle as you can. There is nothing more immersion breaking and obnoxious than when a random person runs up to you and gets right up in your face, says nothing and then turns around and walks away. That right there is textbook pulse checking. If someone does that to you I would personally in character react saying something like. "uh.. dude? you mind backing the fuck off? There's no need to get all close on me like this." It will almost always deter them from doing it again. Part of keeping yourself immersed better - VALUE YOUR CHARACTERS LIFE AS IF IT WERE YOUR OWN!!! If there's gunfire nearby, don't be a hero and run towards it. High tail it out of there and get to safety. If you are surrounded by potentially hostile people and you feel you're in danger, don't smack talk them because it will only get you roughed up or even killed. Hear a pack of wolves? RUN! Don't be a fearless GI Joe macho guy who fears nothing and feels no pain. It's incredibly cringey to witness happen. Don't refer to in game items as their actual names or use any DayZ affiliated terminology. I can't tell you how many times I've rolled my eyes when i hear a person talk about their new pristine conditioned hunting knife or other item. Honestly, who would ever refer to anything in the real world as pristine? Just say it looks unused or like new. Also your character (unless it's in their knowledge pool) shouldn't be able to identify all types of weapons and ammunition. 95% of the characters walk around being able to identify what an SVD or AK-74 is and tell people what exact ammo they use. That is honestly incredibly unbelievable. If you're on a civilian character, chances are you know little to nothing about the firearm you're using. So simply refer to it as a rifle and when looking for bullets, even ask people if they know what it uses? Chances are that your character wouldn't be able to know that off hand. Another thing; don't ever say to a person you're "dying of starvation or dehydration.." another really immersion breaking thing to say right there. Say instead "if i don't get something to eat i'm going to collapse!" Focus on PEOPLE and NOT GEAR! This is fairly self explanatory. If you and I are standing having a conversation outside of a military base and we see a guy run right by us to run in and out of every single building at full speed and not saying anything to us... that's just incredibly sad and it easily shows that person is far more interested in gear than role playing with us. Don't be like that guy, ever.
