    "Pixies - Where is my mind?" "The tales of Fifty Two, the backstory and information. A separate thread is being made for a continuous write-up of the group." Group Overview The Fifty Two is made up from a bunch of nobodies, and that's how it's meant to be. The group doesn't aim to become a famous nor infamous faction known by either banditry or heroism, whose name is passed throughout Chernarus. Fifty Two are simply just irrelevant survivors, but the fact they acknowledge it and strive to be themselves and nothing different is what makes the group work. Hopefully, in the future, those who are aware of our group can look at us as real down-to-earth personal individuals, each with our own behaviour, skills and interests working together as Fifty Two. We aim to provide thorough, enjoyable encounters with those we meet in-game, and develop our own group lore and stories as time passes. Fifty Two takes a neutral standing to politics in Chernarus. As well as developing each other's characters, the group also provides support outside of the game for its members and other community members to ensure everyone is ok in real life. - Formation The aces of Fifty Two first met after an incident Clancy experienced in Gorka (Горка) where he was held up by a masked man. The man was soon shot by Clancy, and he remained in the Police Station whilst surrounded by infected. Figuring it was his only way out, he began unloading slug rounds on the sea of infected surrounding the door. These gunshots intrigued a recent passer-by, a man by the name Kaine Wilson. With the new-found help of Kaine, the two cleared a safe exit out of the station and engaged in conversation about the whole ordeal. Sharing mutual feelings about the fate of the man, the two continued talking on a trip to Altar, where they hoped to meet an old friend of Kaine, Markus Lawson, an ex-group friend. The meet up was amazing, and whilst checking out a fortified radio station, the trio spoke of working together in an effort to survive more efficiently. Soon being joined by Liam Carter, Clancy's long-time friend throughout the epidemic, who was finishing his last bit of business in the North. When the four came together in Markus' old camp, they found themselves playing a game of poker, sharing their tales from their past. The four agreed to form a supposed group amongst themselves and that was when Markus came up with the genius group structure idea based off of the set of cards they were playing with. This structuring can be seen further down the thread. After sharing the idea with the others, all were in support and quickly sorted their strongest characteristics and skills into the four suits. Deciding each had their own responsibilities and oversight of the groups different tasks, they set about fixing up their old soccer field camp. They decided once camp had been set up, they could truly start working efficiently. During a supply run being made by Clancy, he came across a stranger using the wooden planks from the neighbouring city's construction site to fuel a campfire, the perfect stuff to supply the Spades with for the on-going camp construction. After introducing himself, and joining newly met Theodore Woodley Jr for some freshly cooked steak, the two made use of some nearby large-capacity bags to bring back double the supplies for Markus. Once arriving back at camp, Theodore was introduced to the Fifty Two family and their structure, loved what he saw and offered to be a part of its early growth. The boys welcomed him with open arms, and the five individuals continued to improve on the camp sharing the few bottles of vodka and cannabis Theodore and Clancy had picked up on the way back to the camp. "The goals of the group are split between the four suits, however, there is an overall group notebook, which is separated into chapters. This group notebook displays the past objectives set out by the group, as well as their current tasks and goals. Once a note is completed, it will change to the past tense and be struck through, however current notes will be readable and present tense." "The suit goals will follow through with the development of the current group notebook." CHAPTER I: Setting up camp Fifty Two members from all suits began construction on a suitably sized camp [Day 645] Achieved! Spades are making improvements on and expanding Camp Fifty Two till the main camp is secure [By Day 655] Hearts are assisting Spades by finding and bringing back the necessary tools, materials and equipment to make the improvements [By Day 655] Diamonds are also assisting in the finding of materials, as well as covering ground to understand the other nearby groups and factions [By Day 655] Clubs are focusing on protecting the Spades until completion of the current improvements being made to the camp. They are also working with the red suits to sort out weaponry [By Day 655] ... "The group is structured into four suits, Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts and Spades. When a member joins, he or she will choose which suit they would like to take responsibility in. The suit doesn't restrict what an individual can do, as work is open to all, however being in a suit means you take responsibility for the suit's main focus. If you are a Club, you should make protection still your priority, but you may assist Hearts in supply runs, as protection for example." "How the personal card works: When each member joins Fifty Two, they choose a personal 2-10 card within their suit. They keep this, as it represents their membership within the group, and their suit shows their responsibilities within the group. Everybody has one of these, it is a personal card." "How the face cards work: There are four face cards per suit, each displaying the amount of responsibility they have for their suit. This card is held at all times as well as the person's personal card. It should be clear that this does not represent POWER. An ace card shows that said person has the main role of responsibility for the management of their suit, they will be the person organising work and keeping track of progress. Everyone throughout the group is equal, all opinions are listened to and people have the freedom to think individually. Holding the responsibility of a face card is simply a physical sign that you hold more responsibility within your suit. These may be changed between members if needs be, for example, an ace passes their ace responsibility to another member so that they can focus on themselves more than organising things for the suit." Current Members: 5 The Clubs represent the group's security, and enforcers. A Club will take responsibility for the group's protection, and thus are more often armed heavily compared to other suits. Clubs will handle most of the group's dirtier work if necessary, including encounters of a more hostile nature. The suit of Clubs would suit the following characteristics: security workers; soldiers; gun enthusiasts, mercenaries etc... The complete active suit possession is as follows: Ace of Clubs: @EaZi 10 of Clubs: @EaZi The Diamonds represent the group's communicators and business organisers. A Diamond takes responsibility in maintaining communication and trade with other factions and groups, finding prospective members, organising work for the Clubs as well as Full Housework (Entire group work). Diamonds will often be sharing stories, making regular radio communications and so on... The suit of Diamonds would suit the following characteristics: public speakers, friendly people, deep thinkers, management, businessmen/women etc... The complete suit possession is as follows: Ace of Diamonds: @Alone 7 of Diamonds: @Alone The Hearts maintain the group's survival and wellbeing. They vary their skills between scavenging, medical practice, even just keeping morale high amongst the group. Hearts will organise supply runs, manage necessary farms and food management. Scouting, as well as mapping, can often be expected within the suit of Hearts. The suit of Hearts would suit the following characteristics: doctors, farmers, looters, survivalists, scouts & hikers etc... The complete suit possession is as follows: Ace of Hearts: @Welshie 10 of Hearts: @Peril 7 of Hearts: @Welshie The Spades represent the group's tradesmen and construction specialists. Spades will likely have experience in practical tasks, with a passion for building. Spades take responsibility for base-building, the maintenance of camps and other areas, as well as the expansion of it. Making use of Hearts' supply runs, supplies should often be sufficient, allowing creative minds to improve camp. The suit of Spades would suit the following characteristics: tradesmen, builders, architects, building-management enthusiasts etc... The complete suit possession is as follows: Ace of Spades: @LewOS 9 of Spades: @LewOS "The current official affiliates and hostilities of fifty-two. Note: denoted IC by being dealt a Joker from an ace." "4 Jokers are held, a single card designed respective of their suit. In the event that a Joker is dealt use by a suit, the person, group, or dynamic group that receives the suit becomes marked as friendly, ally, affiliated etc to Fifty Two." Clubs: N/A Diamonds: N/A Hearts: N/A Spades: N/A - Fifty Two members have noted down those they have come into contact with, the notes and opinions are as follows: "Ruski locals in Severograd - Friendly as of yet, lot's of shooting though, better to be wary" "A map of the group's active area. Green represents highly active. Yellow represents less active." "The current group standing on recruitment, joining, affiliation and other relations" Fifty Two is currently open to both OOC and IC interests in joining. Fifty Two is currently open to IC interests in group relations. If you are interested in joining the dandy bunch of fellas that make up Fifty Two, then please don't hesitate to message me expressing interest, with whatever information you want to share, the more the merrier, you're all cool individuals! People may not understand the way the face cards work, but I have tried to explain it as well as possible. Everyone is equal in this group. The overall oversight of suits IC, and the management of the group OOC will be done by myself as the thread poster, but I'm making it clear that the group doesn't use the face cards as a hierarchy.

    Hello Survivor! I've already seen a lot of groups and group ideas on the Server, experienced different kind of RP in the community and took place in lots of their scenarios. And while I did that i was again and again thinking about my own ideas for a group. What could be creative enough to entertain the players in and around the group and provide a healthy amount of RP? Well the answer to that question is already in my head. The idea for my own group is nearly completed. The only thing that I am really missing is the people who will form the group with me together. So this thread is about giving a short taste about what the group would be about and then see who can identify himself with the whole thing. Lets start with the basics. The mentality of the group will be hostile, chaotic hostile. But don't expect PvP. Because this is not what I want to aim for. What I really expect of the outcomes are interesting conflicts that every character will remember. No instant initiations, no boring robberies. It is more like forming a scenario from a movie where people we interact with will notice the difference between every single character of us. No Military stuff. The Group will be formed out of civilians.. with shotguns, pistols and other weapons in the game that most people forget that they are existing, No Platecarriers nessecarily to push for best outcomes in a firefight. It is not needed because we would do whatever we can to avoid a fight. We want to live. We want to choose our opponent smart. The following things are details that will give the whole Group idea a face so you can imagine how the Group will work. The group basically want to survive like everyone else in an apocalypse. And everyone has his own way to keep themselves alive. My Group will technically live from the fear of others. Yes, my idea is spooking the hell out of other Players so they will think twice if they want to mess around with us. And as soon as they fear you they will do everything to be safe from you. So they will give you food and you give them the promise to leave. Or they are stupid and refuse to follow your demands. then you give an example of what consequences will follow if someone tries to be fearless. The next time - I promise - they will welcome you with 3 cans of delicious beans because losing another finger might be worse than losing food or something else. You probably still think this is a typical hostile Group with no Specials, but here is the important thing: The Group will be two faced. As long as it is bright and shiny in chernarus every group member won't be that different to a normal civilian. Maybe a bit strange but definetly not dangerous. But when the sunlight leaves and the night arives everyone of the group will come together for a hunting season in the cover of darkness. Equiped with torches, flashlights and other light sources we haunt the unexpecting survivors for informations, resources or maybe for vengeance or a clear statement. another important factor is the way we will protect ourselfs. Our identity will be what is gonna be our Shield. Nobody will ever find out a name of anyone of us. And to make this a sure thing we will cover our faces when we go for a hunt - with masks of any kind to increase the spooky factor hehe. I am also a fan of staged RP Scenarios to serve unexpected situations for more interesting RP experiences and to avoid Rule conflicts. But I prefer not to tell examples of my ideas here I think this is enough Information to give a first impression about my idea. Are you interested to go a brand new way of RP with me? Then feel free to send me a PM for more informations and questions! - Sorry for mistakes. My english isn't always on Point -

    A lot of groups I find have been initiating out of sheer boredom and hoping for a firefight. At the same time, it's an RP server, there's plenty of other servers I know where they could get the same thrill of PvP if they seek it but they don't. I do hope future hostile encounters are more fruitful and not just purely taking gear and rping for an x amount of time just to loophole around the "You must provide RP for your hostage" rule.

    Question you'd like to ask: Lately and sadly there has been more and more mistrust and lack of faith from the community towards the staff team. How do you, not just the admins but the GM's/mods/support and loremasters plan to gain that faith back and if so, what examples can you provide to bring back at least some faith to the community.

    6 months ago, my hometown was destroyed by the third strongest hurricane to ever hit the continental United States. We were out of power, running water, and cell service for over a month, with thousands still displaced or living in roofless homes. It's been over 180 days, and we've received no additional disaster funding from the state or federal governments. Today, we rallied at our state capital to remind our Congress that we're still here and still struggling. Really proud of my community and wanted to share that here.

    Question you'd like to ask: What exactly qualifies for false report? Is it intentionally filing a report knowing there's no rule break? Because to my and most others knowledge, that's what it's supposed to mean, and yet recent verdicts strongly indicate otherwise. So what exactly precisely are all the guidelines for false report so that everybody knows when to and when not to report so we don't get nae nae'd on our own shit.

    Question you'd like to ask: In the past an accusation staff had to face from time to time was that some of them are barely active In-Game so that their only impression of the state of the RP came through community members, stream, reports and so on. Is actual In-Game activity (hours played in the last two weeks) by staffer being promoted within staff or even required?

    @ScarletRose It was nice meeting you and your friends on the hill near Bash and then again at the Novaya Church last night. I’ve seen you all a few times before, usually from a distance, including a very short encounter at a water pump in Vyshnoye. And yes, you were correct, I was definitely nervous because, thanks to a man named Wong, Rose thinks she knows. Also, you were smart to leave the church when you did. I fared well, but, most of the rest of my family did not. It seems you can’t trust anyone these days, including supposed friends. And it all was over a damned symbol on a hat. Oh, and the Chedaki. Goodness, they cause problems even when they’re not around! Anyway, thanks for being so nice to a lone stranger on a hilltop. The encounter definitely didn’t go the way I expected. (I would mention your associates, but, I don’t know who they are. Yet.)

    https://register.ubisoft.com/acu-notredame-giveaway/en-US Ubisoft is making A/C Unity free until the 25th of April due to the Notre Dame Cathedral being set ablaze. I understand not a lot of people like A/C games (Blackflag is where I stopped), but it is something that is an entire game for free, so if you want something you can maybe use mods in, or just run around lazily when bored, get it now. Because after the 25th you have to go back to pay for it, and if you get it for free it is permanently in your library meaning you own the whole thing. (Minus DLC's if there are any.) Just a heads up.

    “ I just want to help people “ kevin has been repeating this sentence over and over again as he try’s to write in his note book, the pen hasn’t been used so long that it has dried up and all it is doing is cutting into the paper. Weeks and weeks have passed and he hasn’t taken on a client in so long, his books remain closed and he thoughts nor his emotions are now not his own. So much has happened, with new cuts on his body and people trying to break his mind. The followers of Mann, the toy collectors, The comfort drug pushers....comfort...the evil drug that now controls his emotions. He try’s to stop himself, he is trying to find a way to get of it but every time he sees the drug or anyone mentions it he goes crazy and that’s all he can think about. Kevin just wants to roll over and die when he dosnt have any but he must stand and he must carry on with his work. His best friend Doctor James Cole, his only crime was knowing Kevin, for caring to much and getting involved with his shit to try and proctect Kevin, it cost him his eyes. The guilt is far to much, everything he looks at James he just wants to hold him and not let go, he just wants the nightmare to end for him and for James. “ I just want.....*the pen finally starts to work*...........to help people “

    Good morning, good evening or good afternoon! My name is Hiccup (not really but usernames are important), and I enjoy role play as a pass time and hobby, as well as an outlet to improve my creativity. I've been role-playing for a long time, my love for it was ignited the first time I played D&D. If anyone who is reading this hasn't played Dungeons and Dragons ever, I highly recommend it! Without it, I wouldn't have ever discovered how fun role play can be. I've been a player for going on 7 years now, and a DM for about 5. I found my love for writing before playing D&D, but suffice to say being a DM has definitely helped me translate that love into campaigns and stories that I can go through with my players. Being a DM, I've had plenty of experience role playing different characters for my players to engage with. Not only that, but I've been apart of role play communities before, and this one is certainly one I'd love to get invested with.

    I like this idea, my only advice is make sure your RP is amazing (I'M SURE IT WILL BE), I'd hate to see another hostile group labeled as a "Focused on PVP". Best of luck if you decide to follow through, it will surely add to the RP of the server!

    Before we begin, let it be known I an a friend of Dusty's, so there is a hint of bias coming from me, and what I mention following this disclaimer is my opinion. I'm going to be dissecting the verdict handed down in this report. NVFL: @YNW Dusty, you punched an individual having clear hostile intentions against you while said individual was carrying an assault-rifle in his hands. This unrealistic behaviour shows that you cared very little for your character well-being. 3.2 Your character must behave realistically and appropriately to the different situations you participate in, keeping the current world situation and context of post-apocalyptic world in mind. Do not act in a way that indicates no value for your characters life and survival. For example, attempting to kill people when heavily outnumbered, excessively talking back or insulting someone when taken hostage, or knowingly running into an area of active hostile engagement when not involved in the fight. Characters found guilty of breaking this rule will be permanently marked as dead. What...? So, in a server where we prioritize RolePlay over RulePlay and PvP, punching someone is considered NVFL? So, why according to this verdict found here, that isn't the case. There is literally zero difference from what I am reading in the situation. The guy, who had a gun, was punched and when the guy punching the person was shot, it became Attempted RDM because punching is literally stated in the link," First of all lets address the punch. This is something that falls completely within RP, you two had an aggressive conversation which led to -Snip- punching you once." Why is this situation not NVFL, but Dusty's is? What has changed? I don't see any justification for this. @Roland literally states that we prioritize RolePlay over PvP, so what the fuck should've Dusty done? Walk away and have Scar follow him until he is initiated on? I guess HostileRP can only be done by initiations these days instead of shit talking in person and fighting via fists. I'll remember that next time someone threatens me verbally or something in RP so I can just green light and gas them. Good to know. False Report: @YNW Dusty, you will be found guilty of filing a false report. You punched a man with an assault-rifle in his hands and allies in direct vicinity. While you might have been surprised that you got killed, the fact remains that you put a report up despite being the first person in the situation to start hostilities. The reasoning for False Report is lackluster entirely. False Reports are verdicts given out to people who do not know the rules, or throw up a report with malicious intent (eg. no obvious rule break, yet they want to try and get someone banned- like what a certain G person did to @Nihoolious in December, which in turn got he/she banned. From reading the report, there was no malicious intent behind it. Every community member has a right to put up a report if they believe a rule was broken. Dusty was fucking shot for trying to RP and punching Scar instead of escalating immediately to PvP or just bullshit shit-talking, which again is not against the rules. So, out of curiosity, are we allowed to put up reports against anyone, as long as it isn't any RP boys anymore? I promise you if the situation was reversed, the outcome would've been entirely different. I get that Dusty left a really bad taste in people's mouths when he was initially banned, but this is grasping at straws and throwing them at the wall hoping something sticks. It is very disappointing to see how verdicts have steadily declined since the beginning of this year. Hell, @Jasper was even wrongfully permabanned in a report he put up and it took almost two weeks for the error to be corrected. It is very disappointing to see how the rules are interpreted and how different verdicts can be with a new staff generation getting involved. I urge every GM+ to PM @Terra, @Ron, @Stagsview and all older and more experienced Ex-Staff for their input and guidance because we need it right about now. It takes 6+ days to verdict reports where people have stopped commenting on to be verdicted, we as a community and as a Staff team can and should do better. This isn't a flame thread or post, but I'm sorry. These verdicts lately, even accusing and involving people I don't know are just whack.

    What would happen to a CHDZK member If he punched an armed CDF soldier? What would happen to a rival gang member if he randomly punched the other gang whilst he's armed? RP wise this makes sense this is not some random bloke on the streets but someone who actively tries to kill him and your telling me you'd put your gun on your back and punch back? Fuck no he'd be shot on the spot. This used to always grant rights so people wouldn't just randomly punch you for no reason, what changed? maybe if he's a hostage sure he would have had control over the situation but there he had none, no clue how many where around and seeing as he just assaulted him his actions were warranted. Nihooliouse got banned for griefing, unless your referring to another case?

    So, I was actually in the video of Dusty's report when Scar's character asked me to hold Dusty's up. We already knew from the start based on their interactions that one was trying to bait the other (I will let people figure out who was baiting who). You can hear me saying "I got bigger fish to fry" as I didn't want any part in it, I wasn't even aware after they ran off that Dusty got gassed, I saw the report but didn't think much of it at first. Seeing the video, the situation could have gone a million different ways that didn't have to involve killing Dusty with a gun. NVFL? In a realistic scenario, if someone punched you while you had a rifle in your hand, you'd probably take a few seconds to recover from that punch and at that point (If we want to talk realism) some dope text rp could have happened here where Dusty's character could have attempted to disarm the man via text emote. (Though wasn't given the chance.) There was also the fact he could have said "If you punch me like that again, I'll put a bullet in you." at that point it's free game. I'm just seeing people are bored and trying to score free kills for the sake of either gear, the thrill or really any reason not to run around a huge map with your friends and finding nothing better to do. It's why even in game I refused to get myself involved, plus I had some other RP going on that involved something fairly fruitful in the end. I do believe the admins, are wrong in their verdict of banning him based off false report, there could have been a million things done here. A punch is nowhere near something threatening in the least unless he kept spamming it repeatedly. Not sure what to say but this is a small reason about why I am always strongly advising my group not to report things in case of Staff Bias or whatever other reason. It's not a secret there's friends of friends and nepotism is a real issue on this server. Can anything be done by the community? No, it's not our server realistically, it's Roland and Jim's, so at the end of the day, this thread will probably get closed like most and they MIGHT do something about it, it depends on how they look at the facts.

    I don't think the issue is with people being afraid of Hostile RP. The issue is that people are BORED of the hostile RP being provided by many groups. (Honestly, I don't really care if it seems that I'm pointing fingers.) Most of the hostile groups provide very 'samey' kinds of RP, regardless of their group goals or backstories. In all honesty, if it weren't for the armbands, I'd find it difficult to tell them apart. And these groups DOMINATE the server. They're always on in high numbers, at almost all hours, and it's always the same: Initiate, take gear, "give me information", beat if the information isn't good enough, and let go. And hey, I could deal with that on the off occasion, but when it's EVERY day for some people, when its THREE times a day.... trust me, it kills motivation to get on and play. Some of these groups claim to be "progressing peoples story-lines." But when you're trying to insert yourselves as the antagonists to EVERYONE'S story-lines..... again trust me, it gets stale. People are in fact able to have their own stories with other groups, have their own development with other people, rather than everyone dealing with the same 3-4 massive bandit groups that want information and guns. Now onto the "They just don't want to have their M4 taken" argument. Fair enough, it's true for some people. Especially those that run solo, those that never have any back up. For some, getting robbed for their rifle every single time they run into a large group gets tedious and boring. And c'mon.... you can't seriously be accusing them of GearRP for wanting to keep their weapon, without also being accused of GearRP for wanting to take their weapon in the first place. "But it's for my own protection." - I know of at LEAST two hostile groups that will either send people on their way with full kit, weapon and ammo included. I know some people that will set their gear on the ground, tell them to run across a field or something and THEN come back for their shit (giving the aggressors plenty of time to get away.) "But then they could hunt us down and kill us." - So what? That's part of the thrill. That feeling of never being 100% safe, even if you have a massive group of mates around you. Honestly? Grow a pair. Potius Cras for instance, are at a CONSTANT disadvantage as their whole group is KOSable at ALL times. My fucking hat off to them, by the way. TLRD; People are bored of the same Hostile RP style day in and out. Spice things up, don't be all about robbing people and demanding information. You don't even need to initiate to be hostile. Don't try to insert your group into every single persons storyline. Be willing to put yourself at a disadvantage by letting people go WITH their weapon sometimes. Not all the time, but sometimes. Acknowledge that everyone is trying to have a good time, and that NOT everyone is part of a group that can help them out if they're always being robbed.

    Not just a m4, an AK, an AWM, a M1A, a M16, and any other gun that big groups are able to horde while most of us can’t even find one. The dev team can feel however they want but I’d actually like to be able to use all these modded in guns at some point. The survival aspect is fine right now, zombies are a pain in the ass while you actually have to worry about food and drink. Don’t make it so we have to use shit guns when the entire lifespan of DayZ there was no problem finding good ones.
