    I used to believe we could help everyone one way or another, but since time went on, that concept isn't valid anymore. Since I've been back in this godforsaken country, the people I call friends have changed. Other folk around these parts would say they are nothing but scum because they simply fear them. I'm lucky enough to have my words and people believe in what I say or they fear them. I've never been much of a soldier and I've always had some sort of PMC or people to enforce my words to those who don't believe. When I was a kid a man called Rustin used to preach to all the child slaves about how we are a family and we have a duty to the people to give them a new home and help those who can't. I used to believe in it and thinking about it today, the knowledge and wisdom that man used to tell us, I've started to teach others in the same light of things, Ironically I was scared of him and now I'm telling teaching the very thing I feared. I was travelling through some burnt down the village and I saw a church with a someone hanging from the arches. I remember seeing his face somewhere, but I can't remember his name. I heard a few months back around these parts there was a group that kidnapped people and held them a countable for their actions or so called actions they committed and if they were guilty they would be put to death and looking at the man hang, he must of being guilty of some crime. I didn't stick around for long and kept on walking. I ran out medication that the doctor gave me and I was looking for some more, but I couldn't find much and I could feel I was getting weaker and I ended half dead in a town called Polana and I heard some voices I rather I didn't. It was the Wolf Pack, I kept to myself and took my beret off and went to the water well and didn't say anything and I was walking out of town I one of the Wolfpack started to talk to me and I kept on walking. I must of got about twenty yards before I start chucking up everywhere, sick, blood everything. Wolf Pack being Wolf Pack saw I was chucking up and came running over. I got up and kept on walking and Phoneyxx walked in front of me and saw my face and knew it was me straight away. I had my pistol out as I could barely hold my rifle. I'm not sure what it was but she just stood there looking at me, it could of been the blood coming out of the mouth or she was surprised to see me like this but I knew I had to get out of there. While I was walking out I looked over my shoulder she was the only person left standing there. While I was walking down the road I saw a stream and walked down to it and washed my face and I got back up to start heading down towards the coast and I blacked out and the next thing I knew I was on a bed, It took me a moment until I realized where I was and I saw a woman standing to look out of the window and I went to grab my pistol from holster but it was gone and I looked around the room and saw I was hooked up to a saline and god knows what else. I lifted my legs from the bench I was on and pull the needles and everything else from my arms and got up, the girl that was at the window turned around and it was a girl called Willow, she was the same girl that was around the Moon's camp and I always thought she was known it all kid that thought she was gods gift to man anyways she rushed over to me and tried to get me to lay back on and I pushed her off her off and I said 'where's my shit' and she pointed and I put my jacket back on and grab my guns and bag. While I was putting the belt on, the door opened and Phoneyxx walked in with few guards and she said I need to sit down and but I brushed her off and when I walked out, I saw the last person I expected to see. The leader of Anarchy, Dimitri. I stared at him for a few moments and he walked over saying he heard I was down here and came down to see If I was dead or not. After a few moments he said I looked like shit and need to go back in, I explained what I did to these people and he said he would sort it, After a few hours, Dimitri came back with a PMC, The Legion and I spoke to the leader of that called Jericho. Dimitri must of explained what I had, what I could make and do, and they sent what they call the best doctors what was left in the world to patch me up.

    "Deus Vult" As they say, "God Wills It". And so, The Crusaders were willed into existence, although not by the gods specifically, But the founders of the group itself. As Medieval warriors are, we Crusaders are a strong and loyal group, we protect our own and prove our ability in both battle and strategy. Some of us more in one than the other. Of course all good thoughts of God mostly gone, the Crusaders, instead of their Medieval counterparts, follow a Queen or King with leadership goals and inspiration. United by our faith in each other, and in the Crown itself to lead, we as a group help those who can't help themselves, and punish those who stray from a humane deposition. We are not just a group of like minded individuals, but friends and family coming together to stake a claim and prove themselves in the land of Chernarus. Knighted under the Queen herself, a good Crusader always has a strategy planned out and is as sharp as the tip of their sword. Although we carry weapons from a time long lost, beware the warrior that you have previously crossed, for we carry more than we appear, and will rain down upon you, far and near. Artura, being one related to a long forgotten King of times past, found her way to Chernogorsk before the infection. Of course, she brought along her favourite book on the nine crusades and after losing her family, being taken hostage, and generally all around being mistreated, she turned to the books teachings. Eventually finding people that agreed with keeping peace and punishing those who didn't, The Crusaders were born, with each one of the founders having agreed upon their role within the faction based on their abilities. Having ultimately gathered the group together, Artura was to be crowned the Queen of the Crusaders, her previous guard, Maverick, was to be Executioner of all that deemed worthy of such a fate. Richard, as agreed upon, took up her right hand man, having the skills with a sword, and strategy for battles, he was a perfect fit to be a leader of the Order. Now Robert, Forbes as hes called, was as wise as they come, being a historian and knowing the ins and outs of the castles and weaponry of the ages, he was chosen as the Seneschal, or Grand Commander, ultimately handling the men and history of the Crusaders, as it had just begun. Together, they all formed the first Round Table. After founding the group and finding an area worthy of their presence, Artura and the Round Table attached tiny scrolls to the back of Pigeons in the area, with contact information and location, promising sustenance and defence, though this idea actually had failed testing due to feral pigeons, the Crusaders like to believe it hadn't. ⦁ Thou shalt stay loyal to the Crown and shalt respect all members. ⦁ Thou shalt defend thy Army. ⦁ Thou shalt be up to code while being employed in the Crusaders, with another Crusader or not, thou shalt obey the laws of the land. ⦁ Thou shalt respect all weaknesses, and shalt constitute thyself the defender of them. ⦁ Thou shalt not recoil before the enemy. ⦁ Thou shalt perform scrupulously thy duties ordered by the Queen and high rankees of the Army. ⦁ Thou shalt never lie, and shalt remain faithful to thy pledged word. ⦁ Unless granted the ability by a direct underling of the Queen, thou shalt not speak for, or constitute any deals for thy Army. ⦁ Thou shalt be generous, and give largesse to everyone of need. ⦁ Thou shalt be everywhere and always the champion and bringer of the Right, and the Good against Injustice and Evil.

    I don't think there's been more griefing reports since the update, to be fair. The lack of proper means of storing guns will hopefully alleviate a little bit of the hoarding (though it will definitely not stop it as long as we still have the means to store them, because groups with access to enough manpower and time to find tents will inevitably start hoarding the same thing again). The root of the problem is, as @Rover put it, the community's stance of "gots to have the loots". Everyone (myself including) is guilty of that to some degree due to our exposure to games in general. And as long as that attitude persists, there'll always be people hoarding, raiding and complaining about there not being guns to find for RP purposes (somehow the complaints are always about not being able to find fully automatic rifles however. There's barely any complaints about finding shotguns, pistols or bolt-actions. #Civiliangunsmatter). And while I agree with @Craig on the fact that not having a way to store guns at all will definitely be a better bandaid to the hoarding problem, I don't agree with there magically being more roleplay coming from the non "campfire/gear" RPer side. In fact, I feel there'd be a drop in RP because it takes away the value of a base as a hub. And when the hostile groups already have all their RP rifles, what do they have left to go to the bases for other than hostility for the sake of hostility? This issue comes from both sides, not just one of the other. In a ideal world, everything would be really hard to find. Guns, ammunition, food, protective clothing. That would put value on ANY item and not assault rifles/military equipment. But considering the current complaints with the loot table, making things even more scarce would end up with a lot of people frustrated/leaving, which is a equally bad outcome. All in all, this discussion/issue is something that won't go away anytime soon. To end with, adding more storage options won't really add anything right now, because most people won't bother with containers that can't hold guns and as we've seen before, adding more containers capable of holding guns will only lead to a small portion of the server having a large chunk of the loot people care about.

    Guns! Guns! Guns! You get a gun! You get a gun AND you get a gun! Somewhat I am still baffled about the discussion always going to guns. Someone has too many, some have too few. Usually it's that the campfire role players have too many of them, and hostile pvp:ers too little. And it's always about Automatic guns. No one ever bitches that they cant find a role play Mosin or Shotgun. "All the AK's and M4's are gone!!!!" And usually it's either a hostile group or a new player saying this. I truly hope that one day the discussion on the forums goes that "It's so god damn difficult to find ammo and food and medicine. Not forgetting the guns." But once again this is a video game. And we are here to have fun. To some, it's fun to have loads of internal and external rp, go looting, trading, fighting and just "living" in the world we have here. And to some it's go shoot up a camp, take some fingers, ask for perms to PK and pew. And for 3rd the peeps that just go into bush, set up a tent and gather gear gear gear. But every time someone raids a base it's either 3 things they take. Storage, Guns or nails. Not specifically in that order. And 75% of the time it's offline raiding, because heck, why interact with people. Sometimes I wish someone would nick the god damn ibuprofein, charcoal tablets and 50 steaks we have for our group. But naah. Guns, storage and nails. Because the world of DayZRP is FULL of everything else. I spawn in, walk into city and am pretty much geared. Tadah. Except the dank roleplay FAL or M4. You can see where I am getting at here, on this response to this thread about Creates, turned into talk about guns and hoarding of guns. This is too easy for big groups to amass equipment, just because there is so much of it. I remember someone saying that 556 will be made more rare. Well, it is still most common ammo type after .45 acp. Or food? Easy. I spend 10 minutes in smallest town and leave with least 3 cans of food. Wildlife is easy to find, medical supplies are plenty. Only thing that is rare or uncommon are GUNS. And Guns are not really a requirement for RP, only pvp. End of story.

    Basically there is a finite amount of each type of gun that will spawn. Hypothetically, lets say 30 M4's. The way it was explained to me is if a player has either of those M4's on their shoulders, or in their hands, it does not count against the limit of 30. Once a weapon is placed inside of a container (backpack, any form of clothing, a box, tent, etc) it is counted against the limit of 30. Once all 30 are spawned, no more spawn until they start getting reintroduced into the loot cycle again by being despawned. The issue with the loot economy isn't anything to do with a system that is easy to change. Its a mentality in the community that needs to change, but its also one that is heavily ingrained in any gamer. "Grab the loot." If we doubled the M4 spawns to 60 it means that for the first day or two people would be finding them... Then they'd wind up eventually ferreted away into tents to rot. The issue was much more pronounced with crates being able to store guns as crates were dirt cheap to make and small, and some groups quite literally had hundreds of weapons stored in them. Short of removing the cap on weapons to begin with, which may have other stability/balance issues, any amount of guns will always wind up being squirreled away until the community changes its mindset to only carrying the guns they can fit on their person. Gun racks specifically were removed due to hoarding issues, if I recall. They made it far too easy to hoard weapons. This is one that I mourn, because I loved what they looked like. But also, as a player, I once walked into a room tucked away in an apartment complex and came across a dozen gun-racks loaded with military guns, M249, AWM, etc. Crates were far too cheap to make, even without being able to hold guns. These are things that should not be early game for people, it should be 'end game'. It should cost a lot, it should be difficult, and it should mean something to have one.

    Completely this You don't need to collect every single automatic rifle you see so that it can be stored in a tent for months on end without ever being used. If you want weapons to not be taken from a tent my advise is don't put walls around the tent and hide the tent in the middle of a forest with a camo net over it (believe me works a lot better than putting up walls that practically might aswell have a big neon light flashing with "weapons and loot in here")

    For the most part I've met quite a lot of people in the more northern areas. I find the "Hubs" like Cherno/Elektro etc.. can get bloated and make it harder for solo players to initiate and instead sort of make a "clique" style system where you group up or get left behind. Plus, whilst it is a Roleplay server, people will always want some sort of stash for when they inevitably get "Dayz'd" and can get a new set of their gear without having to pay 30 pound for clothing. Are bases an issue? I'd say no, but I'm sure that the removal and cleanup of abandoned bases should be considered. If a player can submit a report about an abandoned base perhaps an admin could look up the base creator, PM them, and solve it. As for finding more people randomly? Honestly I would use the radio more if it wasn't Map wide and didn't have the glitch where I'm hearing/talking thru a turned off and battery-less transceiver. Maybe when radios get fixed and we can make a use for Altar/Radio Backpacks/Etc.. it will open up more possibilities for people using In-Game comms to set up roleplay.

    Dear community members, A short verdict is fine, as per the admin team. So chill. GMs don't need to describe or rehash every little thing. Just say if someone broke a rule, and if so what rule and why. If you have issue with that, feel free to put in an application for staff. But please for the love of shark week stop backseat staffing.

    Firstly, I would like to say that I think it’s a great idea for us as leaders to communicate more with each other to address issues and work to improve RP for our groups and others in the community. I personally disagree that everything should be handled IC. Why do we have rules, forum discussions and reports? Because we RP as characters, as people who may act and think very differently from the person behind the screen. Ultimately, we are all here to have fun and if the roleplay you are being subjected to is not enjoyable, then people should be able to reach out to the other party to constructively communicate their concerns. If we do not talk to each other OOC, it is very hard to determine if someone genuinely enjoys the RP and make adjustments accordingly to ensure that both sides are content. I think it is a very selfish attitude for a person or group to subject people to the RP they find entertaining with no consideration for the other side and I see a lot of this happening in the community sadly. Telling someone to deal with it IC when the solution may be detrimental to their RP is equally as harmful. In my opinion, poor quality hostile RP is forcing a fight or flight response, leading to constant unwanted PvP or people moving bases and hiding in the woods. While this may be characteristic of the apocalypse, this is a game we play to have fun. This same fight or flight response can be seen OOC, with constant arguments on the forums or people leaving the community. The issues will not be solved IC! With that being said, I have spoken to my group regarding feedback for this thread. What things do they enjoy/would like to see more of? We enjoy interacting with random people on our travels or at our base which constitute more than a hi/bye or a quick trade. We’d like to see different people/groups meet up to RP and build stories. We enjoy maintaining good relations with other groups, setting up trade and security deals which are of mutual benefit. For example, having a trader convoy actually travel between bases to exchange requested items. We enjoy negotiating arrangements to ensure our safety from hostile groups. We enjoy the threat of good hostile RP that does not involve constant initiations and raids. For example, our camp has been tormented for weeks by a dynamic group who broadcast creepy coded radio messages and pick us off one by one. This has been some of the best story forming, tense RP I’ve had and OOC we eagerly await their arrival because its just so terrifying and well done. We would like to see more movement across the map. With people remaining inside bases, it seems that you can run for hours without meeting anyone. Our group concept revolved around picking off the lone wanderer but lately, we struggle to find good RP. This leads to more internal RP, which as much as I love it, doesn’t contribute positively to the community as a whole. Since we have such a large group, we aim to split people up so that while the base is still manned, others wander the map and interact more with other groups. What is it they are displeased with and how can we correct this? We work incredibly hard IC and OOC to maintain good relations with the hostile groups to mitigate their reasons to attack us but it is still a daily struggle for us to avoid and deal with poor quality hostile RP and unenjoyable trolling/memeing. We do not fight back against groups as a rule for fear of endless hostilities and we do not appreciate people taking advantage of this. We do not enjoy unprovoked constant attacks on our home or our people. We do not enjoy ‘shut up, stare at the wall’ hostilities, nor do we enjoy being constantly raided and big dicked. We do not enjoy people coming to our camp and baiting initiations or attempting to create reasons to justify initiations. We do not enjoy sexual and racial comments made towards our members. We do not enjoy people accusing us of being a BDSM group. We do not enjoy people loitering outside our camp for no apparent reason. We do not enjoy excessive banter and memeing. We don’t enjoy people walking in and stealing right in front of us because they know we can’t/won’t stop them. We do not enjoy having to flee from our own camp to avoid poor RP. Yet sadly, we are encountering the above way more frequently than we would like. It’s getting to the point where I have to deal with unhappy members daily, which I think is incredibly sad considering the numbers, talent and experience we have. Numerous members are thinking of moving servers and its becoming more common for people to run away and log rather than experience the poor RP from certain groups/individuals. I am struggling to keep everyone positive and focus on the good RP we do have because the negative encounters taint the RP and moods of everyone involved. This will not be corrected by IC means. Sadly, there are those in the community who simply do not care for the enjoyment of others. This needs OOC intervention because as much as I love this community, it’s getting too much even for me. I wish I had a magic solution for this. I personally think that the community is way too lenient when it comes to poor quality RP. The standards are too low in my opinion. The stance appears to be that if it’s not a rule break, its okay. It’s not. This allows people to provide RP that is just acceptable for them not to get banned, but is not pleasant either. The shift of people to other servers has already begun and while the new players may make up the numbers, they do not make up for the skill and experience of the quality RPers that may leave. What style of gameplay/roleplay are they most interested in? We are a group who enjoy both giving and receiving good hostile RP. Our reasons when taking hostages are always IC motivated and we do not steal gear or look to execute. Our purpose is to create long term storylines. We initiate daily but PvP a few times a month only when we have little alternative. We aim to provide quality RP with enough build up to initiations that we very, very rarely have uncompliant hostages. We welcome and enjoy hostilities against us when there is a storyline behind it with goals that don’t involve constant raids, initiations, executions and big dicking. We respect and follow reasonable demands. We do have a substantial amount of internal RP, both hostile and campfire, but we are welcoming to outsiders where appropriate and actively seek external RP daily.
