    Group has been archived, thank you everyone. I would also like to mention about everyone who gave us a headache during the run of Anarchy and constantly tried to attack us one way or another that regardless of that, we still had fun and didn't care about that bullshit. Because that's what you're supposed to do here, have fun. I thought everyone in the server was nice until I actually RP'd with these people and ran a proper hostile group. We ran into people trying to fuck our RP up (OOCly), people trying to get us banned one by one, people constantly trying to trap us, snake us out and everything like that. But you know why we remained strong and stayed here? Because people couldn't find a way to take us out, because unlike what everyone likes to say, we stayed true to our word and we followed the rules. In 4 months of existence we rounded up 4 bans, that's about it. Compare that to a 20 man roster, with dozen encounters every day and thousands of hours combined. We decided to stop having discussions about reports and situations and we tallied like 5 reports in less than a day. See, when you decide to have fun and actually talk shit out you can actually have fun in this game. People think the people in this group are dickheads and non-rping noobs. But you know what? I've RP'd with people that people claimed to be the "best". Honestly? They were trash. RP is what you make of it in the moment, not everyone will like our RP, but people think that we are people's personal maids when it comes to RP. Not every interaction will be the best but I know for a damn fact that everyone in Anarchy strived for the best out of every situation. To the people that decided to listen to the rumors, oh well - you spent all that time hiding and missed out on some great RP - to the people who RP'd with us, thank you, it's been a pleasure to RP with you.

    Welcome to the 2018 rule overhaul thread. You will be presented a rule draft which was carefully *cough cough* cut and copy pasted from the current rules in order to reduce the overly restrictive nature of majority of them. Here you can see the current draft: https://www.dayzrp.com/newrules/ Major changes are as follows: Focus switch from rules to role play. We believe that if role play is good and enjoyable, rules shouldn't matter much as role play is the #1 priority here. Most rule breaks can be punished without need for restrictive rules (like the hostage rules telling you exactly when you can or cannot kill a hostage). Instead, Game Masters can just judge quality of RP that resulted from players actions on case to case basis and whether that decision made sense based on IC. Rule points reduced from 15 to 4, rules covering only the bare necessities giving freedom to the players to better role play in a chaotic, post-apocalyptic world where there are no rules or law enforcement Removed a lot of restriction rules that may no longer be an issue or were unnecessary and covered by other rules. Removal of hostile/peaceful characters, all rules apply the same to everyone Old kill rights split into "defense rights" that can be shared with anyone you play with and are valid when you were being initiated upon, and "kill rights" that you can share with your approved group members, which are valid when you're the one initiating on someone. Things you should vote on that the staff is currently split about: RULE 3.4 - Choose whether NLR rule should stay as it is now where you remember the situation you died in, or be changed back to previous setting where you forgot the entire situation that lead to your death (that's how it is defined in the draft) RULE 4.1 - Reason for initiation - some staff believe there should be no reason requirement in order to attack other players, as long as the role play provided is good and engaging.

    I think I and many others have noticed a change in attitude from Rolle and I guess now the admin team in recent months. A shift towards a less forgiving and more "my way or the highway" approach. I cite the lore wipe as marking the beginning of this change and the way groups, specifically hostile groups were threatened with removal and punish from Rolle, something that is continuing. Other important events are Dusty's perma ban and, from personal experience, my removal from staff. But I'd say one of the most drastic and uncalled for displays of admin authority was tonight with the banning of 4 individuals from a report by the same administrator who reported them. Something Rolle approved of. The exercise of Rule 4 in a way that only paints a picture of the admin team and Rolle simply not giving a fuck what anyone else thinks because they run the server and they will do as they please. The first instance of this was JimRP giving me warning points for a status I put on his profile and then denying my ban appeal himself. Now we have Aiko making a report against a group of people without video evidence, waiting for a PoV and then banning all of them minutes after it was posted. This "Deal with it" attitude in my opinion is extremely detrimental to the community. I don't play on the servers because I am not satisfied with DayZ right now, something most people agree on illustrated by the decline in players, but seeing this type of behavior dissuades me from ever playing again. I can only imagine how current players must feel knowing now that if they slip up the admins will not hesitate to permanently remove them at a moment's notice with Rolle's blessing. I can only imagine how new players might perceive the casual removal of players by administrators in a report they made. I can only imagine how the rest of staff must feel about this whole thing, especially Gamemasters who have been basically cast aside for a liberal use of Rule 4. I made a poll to gauge these opinions exactly. I didn't want to get sucked into some drama in this community again, I prefer being a lurker who beanz posts or banters in status updates. I don't like having to call out Rolle or the admin team, since the other two haven't given their opinion and because I considered Aiko one of my best mentors in staff. But I firmly believe this attitude will kill the community and there are no viable alternatives. This is the only DayZ roleplaying community that isn't a pile of shit, so let's not turn it into one.

    *The wave of intense static and white noise begins to fade as a strange broadcast begins to clear through the noise, making itself heard over all of South Zagoria and beyond* (You may need to adjust volume through out the broadcast) *The static and white noise begins to overwhelm the air waves once again as the broadcast comes to an end*

    This is just... oh boy is this wrong. *cracks his furious typing fingers* let us begin. (Now before I begin, there are some people I feel are an exception to what I say. This does not apply to everybody in this friendship group, only a few that seem to lead the problem.) What we "see in game" is quite often you run around getting into fights very often, you're extremely aggressive with people for the sake of being aggressive. Why? Because you're good at PvP. But where you want to argue "it is what we see in game," what others see is a man getting shot repeatedly and never dying. Your argument follows that of a realistic one based off what happens in game. On one hand I can say fair enough, but what you then disregard is any other form of realistic hostility. Your group of friends fights, relentlessly. Your go to response is initiation. It's not hostile RP, it's initiation. People don't want to fight you because they will lose most of the time (and losing 90% of the time kills passion to get in game). People don't want to comply to you because you will execute them whenever you get the chance. Exhibit A: Whilst I take into account this is my groups report, the unbiased verdict presented by people that are not in my group shows what I am talking about. I will quote 2 parts of the verdict: "That being said we do not blame Para for refusing as it was painfully obvious what was going to happen" & "However, like in all situations killing someone should be a last-ditch effort even if you have rights.". As is obvious from the verdict, your group of friends executed 2 hostages simply because 'you could.' It was our first official hostility, and it was painfully obvious what would happen yet your party still chooses to kill as often as they can. Again I ask why? the image you constantly portray, through your actions and through your words on the forums, is that you only want to win. This in itself is detrimental to RP. Now, to move onto why people criticise your viewpoint specifically on the military group presence: Firstly: Here we have a prime example of an issue. You regard @Mexi's comments as 'nit picking' despite him actually proposing a very valid concern. Another example where you belittle another's argument instead of actually addressing the concern they put forwards. You don't, and evidently won't, roleplay out a fear of the military presence looming all around South Zagoria. The Russian military, as it currently stands in the lore, is incredibly high. The CDF, the UN, everything still retains a massive amount of threat looming nearby the region we play in. Hell, I refer you back to the days of the VDV when a nuclear blast went off. This shows the capability of the military is still at large, and we have not heard anything to say otherwise. Realistically, if you want to run around executing and killing as many people as you possibly can, how long is it going to be before the military stops regarding the civilian lives and pulls a 'Noah's ark', a purge of the area. You don't take into account the incredible power that could easily come back and destroy the entire area, one that is realistically more likely to come back if the zone is being overrun by a rag-tag bunch of bandits running around causing chaos. Missiles, tanks, more than your small band of now 'anarchists' could handle. And need I go into the detail about how little sense this makes for the character Luke Krey. In the Black Fangs you were involved with running a settlement, known as 'Tortuga' which took place in Stary. Then you moved on to try and help the PCC establish a Government, which was a military organisation. Then you established the 'farming organisation' which had the purpose of allegedly re-establishing 'Tortuga', which i don't need to remind is a settlement with rules. Now all of a sudden you're an anarchist? How does this make sense at all? A lovely screenshot of your backstory as to why this makes no sense: Now, this just proves everything you have done prior to this does not support Anarchy. And what's even more alarming is the fact he 'shot down a jet with an RPG'. Even if this were feasibly possible, you'd be fucked. You'd have the military hunting you down, this would be an official attack on a military organisation of the world, it would result in MORE, military intervention. So when you purport that the concerns raised are 'nit-picking' you are so, sooo wrong. Lastly, To quote a goal "i) Establish a place for people to feel equal as well as a place for our people to call home." from this group. Your goal pushes for equality among all, but you pushed for an agenda in the black fangs where "We are the bad guys, we can do what we like and push you all around because we're better." That was fair enough, but now all of a sudden it's equality? @Mr.Panda you pose the exact same issue here. Your character's actions pose contrary to anarchy and make no sense. So to summarise, your mentality is the problem and it needs to change. This dismissive and 'must win' attitude is one of the biggest problems to RP currently, and there are MANY that share my view. I have tried to talk things out with you numerous times, but you don't change and at this point I highly doubt you will. You don't care at all about realism, and you don't care about other people's views on realism as your emphasis, on everything, is to win. You've made this obvious to everybody over your last year of being here in DayZRP and to be quite frank, half of the community is sick of it. Many people have grown tired of it, and it is one of the reasons half of the players-base is done. People will not raise these concerns with you because A) you dismiss it as 'hate' and disregard it, and B) those that speak to you directly (at your request) give up because you don't change. What's even more ridiculous is that you always ask other people to change, to embrace your style and to open themselves up. This mindset you have portrayed is not one that benefits or promotes RP, it promotes your agenda, to win. For example you state "who cares dude If they cant physically show us this so-called magic military then it's irrelevant. I go by what I see in game." You, in game, always win through forcing your agenda on to people. You're good at PvP, so are your friends, there is no doubt about that. But what you want is to win, and you'll do that by crushing / steamrolling any group that opposes you. Your force groups into situations where they have no option but to fight back or give up. --------------- Now @JimRP what I have said above does not really apply to you in the slightest. I've got no issue with you, or any other of your members. Anarchy is a very well constructed group idea, and in the current times it probably would fit quite well. The graphics are incredible, and work very well with the group idea. The lore is a very interesting read, and I have no doubt about you being able to pull this idea off. I wish you the best of luck with the revival of Anarchy!

    For now it is time for me to say farewell, my real life is taking over fast with the army approaching my family and college need more more right now and i've got commitments in other places of the internet such as other games/communities that I feel I will have more fun with. I guess everyone gets burned out eventually and since I joined a little less than a year ago i've pretty much played non stop and that is... bad but not regrettable. I've had a lot of memories and made a lot of friends here who I can say are closer than my whole like 7 IRL friends who I definitely don't take for granted. People act like this place is going down or whatever but honestly it's really not, this place hasn't changed other than new blood in some places and less in others but for the most part this community is about 100x better than most other places and you only have to go join a discord community to get a true taste of cancer. Sure DayZRP has its issues but everywhere does and its not broken just misguided but I got some wise words from vets here a while back which I took on seriously. But imma shout out my friends/people I respect in the community in no order other than how many people I can remember at 12am; @Jadeboat What can I say a really good staff member and a really good friend (Yeah I said it) you've always put thing in perspective and been honest which is all you can look for in a person through my eyes, we talked about the randomest shit at 4am then go watch Diary of a wimpy kid like its no one business then have the courage to watch fucking Mean girls afterwards. Don't change for the world and come back to staff when you get stuff sorted because honestly you are one of the better community members to do this kind of stuff (No offence to the current GM team ya'll are great too <3) Also @Drbeans *Insert multiple out of context soundboards here* @Buddy I could go on for hours with how much i've agreed with you and the things you have done for the community. The Mentor System that you picked up may not be popular but it works and really you are doing god's work and you don't bathe in the glory, you do it through PM's create meetings and get it done no need for a thread every time you help someone. You told me a while back in my "Community" thread to just enjoy myself and make the changes myself and I really took that in and I have enjoyed myself. Thanks for that advice that set me straight for a long time along with a lot of other things. @Strawberry One of my earlier friends throughout the community, after my horrible 6 fire fights a day RP in the saviours you took me in with 2eazy into Symptom and it did develop my hostile RP even more than the family did even if it did turn out cancer in the end. You always around on snapchat or whatever to play games and we talk on the regular enough to say we do, from everything to 3am chats about motivation to like just the crazy things its been nuts and you are a really good addition to the community. Keep fighting the good fight! @Brady Hell man you told me off more than anyone when I did some dumb shit and I needed it, you gave me a good insight on the rules from a staff perspective and from a community members one, I knew you before staff and to be honest you are the same as you are now so no dumb power trips here. You are a honest friend and funny, from listening to you negotiate to a female drunk at a party to you just being a lemon iC. Like strawberry (You two are like the same but different and I met you at the same time so you too will always be like a package deal) keep fighting the good fight. @Cocomii I met you in the newcomers channel and you told me you were stuck between a bin and my first advice to you was to kill yourself, ever since bringing you to symptom you have always been chill, another person I can say anything around and you will just send it back my way with good advice or some weak roast but ya'know... I'm glad you've come back recently as I do enjoy your RP and you commitment to it is unquestionable. @Honeybee You are sexy and I love you and that's all I have to say. Stay angry to be honest.. <3 @Jasper You are gone now but I still love you and you know everything I have to say about you already. Same with @LawRP @Darion Real chill dude, it's a shame we don't talk as much as we used to but times change, i'll hit you up soon since you guys don't even go into discord anymore I swear. I hope you come back and RP again because I missed your RP and our group OOC discussions. Stay chill! @Lyca n' @Ender The mayhem twins, you two are like so cool and people really just fucking go at you for fuck all reason and its unfair but sometimes that's just the way assholes are and you gritted your teeth all the way until the sweet end. You guys deserved everything you got after leaving staff except a big fucking thank you from all the people you helped indirectly like helping solve those peoples reports/disputes. Also you are both cool to talk to and I know I can come to you two with anything. Love you both <3 @Para What can I say except you are a good guy, drive your point and keep things flowing. Some people may disagree with that but eh, at least most people think you're right or you wouldn't of been a GM. Keep up with your education man and you better be my lawyer when I do some dumb shit in the future like idk not pay my Tv license or something like that. Stay cool man. @Elmo You are my favourite irishman, you've got a good head on your shoulders and the first person who gave me my caution. Also I remember you barging in and shouting at me and @2Eazy for putting things on Shiros wall Good times <3 @Methias Helo fy nghyfeillion dydd Mawrth nesaf! @PCJames You are the gift that does not stop giving, we have similar viewpoints for tasteful conversation and good synergy with our humour. I know I can trust you with whatever and we could talk for hours about life itself and the secrets of the universe. I'm glad you got LM after trying for so long and honestly even though it may be your cup of tea all the time the team needs you still because that's what you are a team even if you don't have any powers really as to say it. I'd leave you feedback but you leave that yourself on other groups Stay loving my prince. @Clumsy Thank you for all the graphics and advice for streaming when Is started out, I really appreciated and ill have to tune into your streams more often when I have free time! Good luck with your kid I wish you the best! @BostonRP Just memes man <3 As for everyone else that I can remember coming over my journey I appreciate ya'll (If I miss you and we talk or have been friends and I didn't mention you I love you too man <3) @2Eazy @Josei @Tony @Spartan @Brayces @Eddie @Hebi Kotei @Lad @Chewy @Sexlaxarienlaxask @Enigma @Jack Bandit @Will @Taryn @WulfeGirl @Stagsview @Laski @Macbrine @KyleRP @ExoticRP @Everyone else on this damn platforum I get along with. A song for the road Hopefully this will be on my gravestone @Laski O O F

    Have you ever wondered what life would be like, if.. we all got along without an hierarchy? If, people managed to maintain a group without having to pay their dues to someone? As Kant himself said.. from a certain point of view, anarchism is a society where law and freedom can be maintained without force. Of course, in today's society.. surviving is the hard part. However, with the right people, with the right mindset, surviving can be achieved and so can maintaining a society where no force is required to possess the rights that any person deserves to have. Anarchy is an ideology that most people would take for granted in our society, because of the massive chaos, but most people are not well educated on the matter and what anarchy really is about. Everyday, there's a new group of people out and about who believe they can rule the world. There's a group of people who believe they know the answer to what this world we currently live in is about, what is right and what is not.. but the answer had always been there and is the same for everyone. A self governed society where people's cause is re-establishing a society where no one is wrong except for people who try to force their opinion on other people. In our current society, there is only one way to achieve something remotely close to a society like that, a revolution. Violence is deemed right and wrong depending on the reason behind it, depending on people's perception on the situation and how necessary certain actions are. If for example the french revolution did not happen, or the revolution in South Africa, imagine how the world would've changed. Everything must be reshaped, reformed, even in a society where chaos rules.. if someone doesn't step up to make a change, then.. it'll never happen, which is this group's sole cause. Letting people know that they can all take part into opposing themselves against all forms of oppression, no matter what the cost is and no matter how that message can be carried across to other people. Collection of relics. Anarchy's art. Roots of Anarchism "When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes a duty." Anarchism is a political philosophy where a society is self governed by its own members and are not represented by another group or 'party' if you will. The idea of a nation state is opposed by anarchists. Anarchists believe in ideas of mututal respect for others, creativity and cooperation, while opposing hierarchy and government. Anarchism has traces from the 6th centuary BC by a Taoist philosopher Laozi and his successors had written pieces that hint to anarchism. Such as Zhuangzi's passage saying "A petty thief is put in Jail. A great brigand becomes a ruler of a Nation", a brigand being a foot soldier. The first sight of Anarchism in politics and religion was in Islam shortly after the death of their propher Mohammed, where Islam split into different branches as they all had different ideas on who to follow, you had the Shia, Sunni and Khawarij. Where Shia and Sunni had different ideas on who to follow, Khawarij Muslims believed that it was Allah's decision and that they would remain in their 'free' states in their own tribal villages where they shared similar ideas to anarchism but it was not full anarchism. Our tale "We anarchists do not want to emancipate the people; we want people to emancipate themselves." Dimitri Tarasov was born and raised in the region of the southern coast of the Black Sea, Pontus, near-by Trabezon in a really small village. The roots of his family originate from the Christian Pontic Greeks that remained throughout the area (including Trabezon and Kars in northeastern Turkey/the Russian Caucasus). He was moved to an early stage of his life inside the region of Caucasus and later on to Chernarus thanks to his parents getting into legal trouble with debts within the Caucasus region. He was brought up for the early stages of his life by a very caring family that only wanted to bring the best to their son, educating him well by actually homeschooling him for most of his life due to them not really being able to be in a position where they can properly pay for his education, but rather wanting him to teach other things which they considered mostly important in life. He was always a really silent person and tried to stay away from trouble, as much as he was able to. Dimitri joined the military and served for about two years when he realized the military was not the answer to our country's problems and that he was not helping the country by any means by spending his days aimlessly in the ranks of the army (pre-outbreak). He was much more of an artist and chose to quit the army at a young age to be able to focus onto his artistic side and look at life from a much different perspective. And oh boy was he in for a big surprise.. coming home in July of that year, to the outbreak. He knew he was fucked, he didn't know how to survive alone. Of course, he wasn't that social either and by that time the only way he could get involved with people was by signing up to join, kinda like he did with the military and so he did, he decided to join the ranks of PCC, not only to help his family out but to also become a part of a group that will help others, hoping he would actually not get in too much trouble but boy was he wrong. Dimitri Tarasov did get a warm welcome into PCC and was serving in their ranks for a long time. Dimitri saw a lot of things, he saw how people who everyone thought were all for saving people would turn as time went on. One valuable lesson for Dimitri was that no one is good and no one is actually right. People don't want to to help each other, they just want as much power as they can get. One great example would be Dimitri's encounter with the people north of Tisi, as well as multiple other groups near Stary that changed his view on what people really want to do during the outbreak. Same with BF, in Dimitri's eyes it was a handful of individuals that were all crazy from his point of view. After having a few situations with them, clearly people like them for Dimitri do not want a peaceful country, they want all the power in our country, rather than making the situation which we're currently in better. After PCC decided to disband the current organization built within the nation, Dimitri realized that there was no way law & order could be established in means that would better what was left of Chernarus, it was all about power. It came down to having to do what was necessary, whether that required violence or not, to preserve a world where Anarachism is the ideology which people follow. Dimitri of course realized that was certainly not easy along with the wide-spread activities of the Black Fangs and the PAU and also the slave traders and so on, it would be hard to get rid of every form of oppression. However, Dimitri has collected individuals that are all helpful in a way or another which can make his job a lot easier. People like Fyodr, Luke, Alexi as well as himself. These men were all collected by Dimitri for one job, to end the oppression on the people of Chernarus. To stop the evil of the power hungry men, to stop nationalism and in general all forms of oppression. These individuals were also gathered because they were all skillful in their own way, skillful social engineers, skillful marksmen and of course, great supporters of the anarch-communist ideology. The most important point promoted by this kind of anarchism is the abolition of the state. The group's views lean towards insurrectionary/platformist anarchism to an extent (organization wise). That means that this group was formed due to a common interest, which would be stopping the tyranny and oppression throughout Chernarus among also expanding knowledge about our ideology. The group also embraces the views of illegalism which means that the people of the group embrace the fact that they will have to get their hands dirty to achieve their goal. Every and each member that takes part in this group's activities know that violence will be the answer in most cases, due to what today's world has come to. These men are not scared to take part in such events, because it is needed to preserve our individual freedom and the freedom of our country from tyranny and terror reigned by other people and groups. Each member carries a relic on himself, which is a way to identify other members of the same ideology. Members of the group have their own unique relic, which is assigned to them by Dimitri.

    Operation Eagle - Lore Event Series - "Tipping Scales" No.1 - April 14th, 2018 As Chernarussians and stranded foreigners alike attempt to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of the first year of the chaos in South Zagoria, events continue to unfold outside of the province. The Chernarussian government's attempts to preserve elements of the CDF have succeeded in part, but have resulted in massive safe-zones and a lengthy perimeter that must be manned by armed men. This string of fortified towns, airbases, safe-zones, and even cities stretch all the way from the Takistani border plains, to Primorsk's docks and the remote reaches of villages deep within the Black Mountains that rely on government shipments of supplies and hunting to survive. Outside of these areas the infected rule most of the countryside, with many locals trapped outside safe areas forced to scavenge and to try and find shelter. Often survivors find themselves dodging the bombs and rockets of government warplanes and helicopters that continue a relentless bombing campaign far from government territory in an attempt to draw the infected away and to clear out the countryside. Such an effort has killed many civilians, as standing orders for the air force are to bomb and strafe anything that moves outside of civilization. In a rather rare stroke of brilliance given the poor strategic command of the CDF during the Outbreak, the government quickly recalled flyable aircraft from airbases in danger of falling to ones safely within government territory, preserving the ability to launch combat sorties and more importantly, to drop supplies and aid to cut-off areas. As the crisis evolves outside of Chernarus, the logistical nightmare being resolved in part, the preservation of the CDF and the air force can be counted as pyrrhic victories for the Chernarussian State and those who still cling to it either for service or protection. Despite these limited advances, many around Chernarus view the inaction on the part of the Chernarussian State and the CDF to Russian occupations in Belozersk and South Zagoria as weakness or cowardice. However, the State cares little for such sentiments and is currently opting to preserve its resources and strip of territory along the coast and elsewhere, as opposed to martyring its remaining strategic assets against the might of the Russian Federation for PR. As the bombing and fighting against the infected continues, the Chernarussian Air Force continues to train inexperienced and rookie pilots to man combat jets in the bombing campaign. The air force's supply of aircrews in the Outbreak has dwindled significantly due to defections and therefore training of new pilots is essential to continued operations. Fueling this effort are the Primorsk and Miroslavl Air Force bases, the latter launching dozens of daily sorties of Mi-17, Mi-24, Su-25, and Mig-23ML aircraft on supply and attack runs. Within the base several two-seater Mig-23UB jets allow the squadron to continue training pilots to meet their personnel needs. Such training missions are undertaken almost daily and fly over the Green Sea, Black Mountains, and even within South Zagoria as they serve the dual purpose of recon and training. But unfortunately, such jets are aging rapidly under the stress of daily operations and the often low quality of repair work done to keep them in the air. High ranking air force personnel often fly in the Mig-23UBs to instruct their front seat pilots, putting officers with years of experience at risk if a technical failure occurs and they fall into enemy hands or are killed. While the Russian Air Force presence currently deters Chernarussian aircraft from flying too close to the border, training flights such as these often fly over the coast between Utes and the province. Our story begins with a late morning training flight from Miroslavl AFB, the CDF's military aerodrome on the edge of South Zagoria. [Across the sprawling airbase dotted by concrete hardened air shelters, taxi-ways, and jets ground crews and pilots disembark from their aircraft as they return from their sorties, others just beginning their missions as aircraft are armed for attack. In the north-east corner of the base, a couple two-seater Mig-23UBs sit inside their hardened air shelters as the ground crew fuels one of them for a flight around the coast of South Zagoria and along the Russian coast to the east of Chernarus. Colonel Nikola Mladek and his front seat trainee Lieutenant Karel Novak walk out of their barracks towards their aircraft as a T-72 tank off to their right fires a canister round at a crowd of infected about a kilometer away outside the perimeter. The two men glance over at the noise and quickly return their eyes back to the tarmac as they keep treading towards the shelter. A Mig-23ML of the local 54th Squadron begins the slow return approach to the base in the distance as it gets closer and closer to the edge of the runway.] "Nice morning huh?" Lieutenant Novak says as they walk up to the air force intel officer standing beside the jet. "I suppose, nice mornings like this can be deceiving though..." Colonel Mladek utters as he signs off on a sheet on the clipboard held by the officer. Both men salute and start a pre-flight inspection of the aircraft before climbing up the ladder and sitting in the cockpit. One of the ground crew in a blue jumpsuit climbs up the ladder after the pilots to hand them their AKS-74Us, maps, and IPads used for guidance. As Lieutenant Novak begins his pre-flight checklist the base commander and a COBR officer begin to walk into the shelter and Colonel Mladek waves from the backseat. The base commander climbs up the ladder to see the flight off as the COBR officer stands at the bottom, glaring up at the cockpit with gold-plated aviators and cigar in hand. The base commander whispers something in Mladek's ear that Novak can't hear from the front seat, and as the two shake hands Novak notes what just occurred, the thing which had happened so many times before. The one at the bottom of the ladder keep an eye on the one at the top of the ladder, the one at the top of the ladder lets the one in the back seat keep an eye on him. A lovely system of political loyalty and people so scared to misstep for fear their grandmother would tell someone in the party or God forbid an intel officer. Any discussion of defecting or flying a plane out of Chernarus to say, Turkey or Ukraine was promptly stamped out and those involved wouldn't be seen again for weeks. These jets and pilots were the State's last line of defense to keep it in power and to keep the quarantine secure and standing. Either this or be one of those poor wretches in South Zagoria where it had all started, fending for themselves or killing to stay alive. Within civilization, these problems felt distant, except when the lieutenant would depart his fortress of a base to go skyward. He observed hundreds of civilians lining the coast on the unusually warm Spring days fishing for hours to catch enough food for ration cans that were made and distributed, he saw the distant glisten of Russian ships out in the Green Sea, waiting for something to happen or to do something. Civilization was only a mirage even before. It is only what we tell ourselves and what invisible boundaries we think hold up civilization that matter. People going about their day, working, shopping, only a kilometer or less in some cases away from a mostly dead and desolate landscape. Politics aside, it became clear for Novak what he personally was fighting for. In the past his comrades had been deployed on peacekeeping missions to Takistan, fighting an enemy that was driving what they viewed as a foreign power out of their homes. Here it was much clearer. They were literally fighting for their right to live within civilization, a place where law and order reigned and armed men made it all possible. A hardened air shelter like the ones at Miroslavl AB. [The ground crew salutes the jet as the Mig-23 pulls out of the hardened air shelter and onto the taxiway, the worn and weathered portrait of Radek mounted atop the shelter with the slogan Smrt Nepratel Statu! (death to enemies of the State) gazes down on all that moved. The jet taxis out of the north-east fighter squadron block of the base and to the west by the transport section where 5 Mi-8/17s sit near an An-24 that had been busy dropping supplies to a federation of government towns north of Miroslavl that were surrounded by infected and militants. To the left on the strip of concrete between the taxi routes and the runway sit two Mi-24 Hinds, one painted in the standard CAF camo but with a slick wolf paint scheme around the cockpit, the other with an alligator mouth around the cockpit.] [As the jet continues down the taxiway to the west a soldier on the ground points to the sky and yells something neither men can hear, but they could guess what it was. The radio of the jet suddenly comes to life: "This is tower to Fawn-1, how copy over?". "Solid copy Tower, permission to take-off over?" "Permission granted Fawn-1, proceed to the end of the runway and fulfill your pre-planned flight path over." "Fawn-1 to tower, wilco."] The jet barrels down the runway and up into the sky towards the east, the base below growing smaller and smaller behind the aircraft. Towards the north, a hundred tiny fires burn, to the east lies the glimmering Green Sea. The pilots keep quiet and fly a couple miles off the coast of South Zagoria, high and away from the Russian no-fly zone. As they turn around the "Skalisty bend" as they call it Novak looks and sees two Russian Su-27s, "two contacts 12 o'clock high!". Mladek glances up at the pair as they head towards the Russian fleet, watching them as they get smaller and smaller on the horizon. "Disregard and continue, nothing to worry about they are just reminding us they are here." says Mladek with a grin. As the jet continues its flight Berezino is visible down and to the left in the far distance, a mere cluster of buildings surrounded by green and fronted by the deep blue of the ocean. Novak looks over a map on the IPad as he adjusts course when a sharp thud is felt from the rear of the jet, the airframe shuddering violently. "Are we hit?", Novak yells as Mladek strains his head to see as far back on the jet as he can. "No, but the controls are not responding", Mladek utters as he returns to a normal seating position. Novak tries to point the nose towards land as the pitch more or less gives out, making his only real option to roll left and try and get closer to shore. "If we go down out here we are fucked Lieutenant", Mladek says. The Mig shoots downward towards a fishing village in the far north east of the province as the radio buzzes with the warning of a Russian jet to stay away from the no-fly zone. As Mladek takes over the what is left of the controls he goes back over the cockpit radio: "Lieutenant prepare to eject, I am going to get us in as close as possible, Mayday Mayday Mayday Tower this is Fawn-1, we have experienced a technical failure and are going down, I repeat we are going down!" Lieutenant Novak grips the ejection handle along the sides of his seat and waits for the Colonel's call to eject. "Annndddd EJECT!" the Colonel yells as a massive rush of air and sound fill the cockpit as both men rocket out of the stricken jet and into the air. As the pair float towards the ocean they wonder what will become of them, bound for a place they know little about. God knows who or what will get to them first... Colonel Nikola Mladek and Lieutenant Karel Novotny When?: April 14th, 2018 Plan: As the Mig-23UB crashes in the distance, the pilots will float down somewhere between the Vavilovo and Kamenka border checkpoints. The Vavilovo checkpoint will be controlled by forces of the Belozersk People's Republic that are friendly to the Anarchists within South Zagoria. At the Kamenka checkpoint will be a contingent of CDF troops from Miroslavl. Coalition forces will want to attempt to rescue the pilots and see them safely to the checkpoint in Kamenka. This will grant them additional CDF ground troops and a supply shipment for the next event/battle against Anarchy and the potential for a formal alliance with the Chernarussian State. Chernarussian Checkpoint If Anarchy is able to capture the pilots, there is plenty of intel they can use to their advantage that the pilots will be carrying (Ipad for flight navigation, orders, documents, etc) aswell as the knowledge they carry. If they are killed or harmed it could be detrimental to Anarchy as they would lose options for the rescue of the pilots. If Anarchy captures and turns the pilots over to the government as part of a deal, they could receive arms, and possible an agreement to cease arming and backing of the Coalition. If they turn them over to the Belozersk People's Republic they will likely be granted a formal alliance, arms, more intel, and an HQ in Belozersk from which to have meetings. Belozersk People's Republic Checkpoint However, the pilots will attempt to evade any approach made to them, but will comply to any hostile threats or actions. If the pilots reach the government checkpoint without any assistance from the Coalition or any capture by Anarchy the event will result in no gain for either side. Radio calls will be made by scouts from various sides on the location of the pilots, so the pursuers will have an idea of where to search for them. The immediate area around Zelenogorsk to the west is a probably landing site but they could drop anywhere. Thanks to @Erik for the ideas! Event Description: This event is meant to minimize the plethora of issues that SA events normally have, and to make it absolutely as open-ended as possible. I was originally going to do this last year but it never worked out. The pilots will be carrying maps and plenty of intel of the state of things in the rest of Chernarus and beyond, and are far more valuable alive than dead for their bargaining power and their knowledge outside of what they carry on them. This event is an introduction into our series "Tipping Scales", and will serve to involve as many groups as possible as outside Lore factions affect the state of rp in South Zagoria. It will provide some context and support to the current conflict with Anarchy and those who oppose it, as each side can leverage Lore factions to their advantage if they will. The goal is to have as many folks around as possible when we do it. If you are active and easy to reach and are versed in Chernarussian rp and would like to play as Lieutenant Karel Novak please send me and @PCJamesa pm entitled "Event App" with some background on the rp you have done in the past and whatever else you think we need to know. We also need a 5 man team of CDF troops who will man the coastal Kamenka CP, and 3-4 BPR militants who can man the Vavilovo CP to take delivery of the pilots if Anarchy catches them. Hope you guys enjoy it, the thread will be updated with more details as we get closer but the event is set for the 14th of this month, with an exact server time TBD. Needed: 4 CDF/Government Troops, 5 BPR Militants. Roster Government Forces @Sgttater - CDF TBD @Razareth - Willem Nedved @Spartan - Lieutenant Karel Novak @Major - Colonel Nikola Mladek Belozersk People's Republic @Sylva - BPR TBD

    As announced previously, here are the new major rule changes for 2018. The main goal with these changes is to create more balanced experience on the server, where the role play is not dominated by one side and other role play styles are being suppressed because of it. We hope that these changes will bring focus back to running large successful groups that affect the lore and all players on the server, allow a revitalization for new and old ways of role play, and restrict even further abusive and unfair hostile role play and PvP. We expect a large influx of new group ideas after this change, please be patient as we will not be accepting all of them at once - that would make the whole point of balancing the server through official groups pointless. This goes especially to openly hostile groups. We want to accept some groups and see where on the scale between good and bad they are, so that the next group added doesn't shift the scale too much in either direction. If we approved a bunch of groups at once, we could end up with an unbalanced mess that we have now and as we know, approving groups is much easier than unapproving them which usually causes a lot of drama and accusations of bias. Highlights of the new rule changes: Core values have been added to the rule page. These alone should give you an idea about what is or isn't desired in this community, both in game when role playing as well as when interacting with other members on TS or forums. Merging and move of some rules, to remove duplicates and better suit the rules nature with main category. Removal of dynamic groups and introduction of official groups and all benefits or restrictions that come with it. This change was significant enough to warrant a whole new section in the rules, see point 7. Also introduction of group wars, let the games begin. Added griefing rule, that should clarify for some that despawning an entire camp because "I don't like that guy on the forums" is a big no no Added event rules, all official events are now protected by rules unless specified otherwise by the event organizer, so that we can have nice things once in a while Minor rewording or clarifications that do not change spirit of the rules, but rather explain it in a way that is easier to understand. TL;DR for the impatient: You MAY NOT share kill rights with other players unless both of you are in the same official, approved group. If you are not in an official group - you are now on your own. You MAY NOT attack other players without a proper justification that comes from in game role play or radio chat forum. You may not use an excuse that your group or character is super evil bandit and their story justifies being hostile. It must be role played out and the role play lead to a hostile situation, not just written down somewhere on a nice character page or group thread! You MAY NOT destroy camps, vehicles, tents etc of other players for OOC reasons You MAY NOT sabotage, interrupt or attack any official events or its participants (official events are the ones that have a banner on the top of the website), unless the event organizer has said it's ok. You MUST be a nice community member, play fair when in game, focus on role play and be respectful towards other players on the forums and TS. You SHOULD help to make DayZRP a better and more interesting place to role play in, by contributing through creating interesting groups that forward the lore, organizing events or creating a player hotspot in game. Here is a full changelog: The rule changes have been highlighted with green color on the rule page. There will be without a doubt a lot of questions and clarifications needed with such a large change of how we are allowed to play, so feel free to ask questions and leave feedback. I am unsure myself how some of the new rules will work in game and play out, that remains to be seen if this change is for better or worse. The rule changes go live immediately. As always with the new rules, we shall try to be a little more lenient for the first week or so where the rule breaks were caused by accidental misunderstanding of the rules.

    Its a farming life for me. Establish a place to call home and to conduct business in. ( Day 210 outbreak) Establish a large radio network advertising our farming company. (Day 215 outbreak) Find military organizations and ask for their protection. (Day 220 outbreak) Establish the best farming community in South Zagoria. Protect our fellow farmers any means necessary. Produce enough food to feed the majority of South Zagoria We wanted to try out a new way of roleplay here in the community currently hostile RP is shunned either way. So we are going to take the route of campfire roleplaying but we will defend ourselves based on circumstances. The plan here is to set up a hub for people to come roleplay with us and share supplies. Food will be supplied free of charge. Rules don't be a dickhead and keep your weapons holstered. Click the radio to contact us ICly. Recruitment will be handled in-game but If you really want to join send @Vytis a message. Shoutout to Kyle Jones for the graphics.

    "We have to show common citizens that our actions are focused on rooting out the evil, not on punishing anyone based on their nationality. Disarm the ordinary armed men, but eliminate all commissars, commanders and functionaries ruthlessly." -Soldier's Handbook, allegedly by Prizrak, supreme warlord of NAPA The name Kameníci roughly translates to 'Stonemen'. They originate from the town of Sinistok, in the Northern part of South Zagoria. It was a rather small town, but was bordered by the rather Russian-ethnic communities in North Chernarus. They could go 20 minutes up the road, and the dialect would be day and night. They were the 'frontier' of the true Chernarussians. They all bled green and yellow, and believed in what their country stood for. Most members of the Kameníci, prior to the infection, were located in the town of Sinistok. They were neighbors in the small, tight-knit town. Most knew eachother, they all grew up together, and once they hit their adult life, most took up the trades of their parents, or moved and joined the CDF. When the Apocalypse began, those who took on the name Kameníci did their best to secure their families to the city of Miroslav when martial law was instated in the early parts of 2017 before returning back to their town to defend against, what they believed, was an immanent Russian invasion. A rag-tag group of Chernarussian survivors stayed together up in the mountains, led by the NAPA guerilla, Mikhail Barta, he and a few of his brothers who fought in the civil war, were the ones who organized the group of locals. Watching from the sidelines as bombs, militants, and civilians all tore apart the country. The CDF left, and Anarchy reigned over all the lands of South Zagoria. But now- now was the time to stand up and reclaim what was once theirs. They were forced back to Miroslavl- defending their families in the city. Gathering more like-minded Chernarussians who aided in their guerrilla tactics against the BPR, who were attacking from the North. Mikhail gathered his band of patriots and fought the BPR alongside his countrymen and women, fending off, what they saw as, the second coming of the Chedaki. Whilst fighting, an IED containing poisonous gas killed 200+ civilians and CDF sentries inside the city, with the leads stating that the bomb had came from inside South Zagoria. They returned back to South Zagoria, finding an Irishman, Louie. He was responsible for the creation of the bomb, and the nationalist were told that the bomb was aimed towards the Kozlov brigades, specifically the Svobada terrorist who the Kamenici never really saw eye-to-eye to. Though brothers of the lands, they had different means of seizing their country. It was told then, that a lady, Taryn, and her group was responsible with the bombings of many of their loved ones inside of a refugee camp inside Miroslavl. After executing Taryn, Mikhail made the decision- stay within the region and make sure nothing like this will happen again. After achieving their goal of exacting vengeance for the despicable terrorist attack on Miroslavl, Mikhail Barta and his troop remained in South Zagoria for several weeks. Mikhail was wounded in an engagement with an unknown terrorist element somewhere to the north of Dubrovka and was carried to a nearby tree line. Their medic did his best the stabilize him, but without proper facilities or medicine -- he sustained near-fatal injuries. While the bullets flew around them, they performed a staggered retreat, and managed to escape with minimal losses. The Sousek brothers, being the ranking men left assumed command of the unit. They discussed for days on what they should do, with members of the formation vying to follow Mikhail's path to stay in South Zagoria and fight the terrorists, whereas the older Sousek, Dusan, supported a more liberal approach, one that would take them back to Miroslavl, to petition the remainder of the government for support. In the end, they ended up taking Dusan's route, making the trip through the countryside yet again back to civilization. They let the people know that justice had been served, distributing copies of the tape they had taken during the execution of the one responsible for the Miroslavl attack, and hoped to use this as leverage for military support on their return to South Zagoria. They had delivered their commander to an overcrowded military hospital north of the city, later receiving a mistaken report that he had died. It took months of heavy campaigning, political discussion and a vast amount of support from the people to afford them a respite, the government had agreed to send them a small consignment of special forces advisers along with material support. The preparations for the expedition began, and the Sousek brothers commenced with efforts to relocate the old members of their unit, well, the ones that survived the past few months at least. They did what they could to get their veterans and reached out to several elements within the civilian populace that had an interest in joining up. And so, it began, the march back to South Zagoria, their home. This time, they didn't have a plan, or a goal, but they knew whatever they'd do would affect the region for the better or worse. In late December around Christmas, the unit got word of a rising communist threat in Elektrozadovsk and made a brief expedition back to South Zagoria to combat it. They assaulted their compound, situated in the school on the hill above the city and came out victorious. With the threat vanquished, they began their journey back west, back to Miroslavl. They went back to their respective lives, retiring in peace. Dusan decided to pay a visit to Mikhail Barta's remaining family in their government issued apartment, and when the door opened stood the man he had believed dead for months. Mikhail explained what had happened, and that the information Dusan received regarding his death was down to a clerical error. They caught up, and Dusan explained the situation in South Zagoria to him in detail -- something he hadn't been up to speed on in months. The new year came, and a broadcast in early January piqued the interest of the two soudruzi regarding a Russian Colonel announcing the 58th Army's illegal invasion of Chernarus, and decided to get the unit back together once again, who they could, anyway. They gathered who they could, dug up their weapons and began the march back to South Zagoria. They were headed back to their home to fulfill their original purpose -- defending South Zagoria.

If i were going to tag everyone I enjoyed working with I'd still be tagging people tonight so don't be sad if you didn't get tagged. @Ender @Lyca, thanks for giving me a chance and helping me get settled in the red chair. @Aiko what are dual IPs? What is a whitelist? @Oliv you were always there for a second opinion or when I had a question, even after staff. Definitely one of the kindest people in this community. @Jadeboat lil jiddle ;-; spend hours with you in TS looking at a single report and I didn't event want to kill you in the end. Siege soon? @Brayces I enjoyed training and helping you get settled. You're a great admin, don't be afraid to show it. Also, accept the butts! @Ark jog on Sparklez. @Jamie you and Elmo convinced me to come back, thanks for that. I'm glad you decided to come back too in the end. @DrMax if you let the interview & screenshot of the month die, I'll kill you. @Dino don't burn out.

    I know what you're thinking... Thank God. *Sigh of relief* Truth is: i have been trying for weeks to resolve issues i've had with fellow staff members, to do everything i could to do the job right, and be friends with everyone all the time. While some fellow staff members were able to talk things out with me and get things fixed, like @Harvey and @Brady, others haven't and It clearly didn't work out, and it's made evident in the way i am treated by them while they face no recourse. Instead of coming to me with concerns or listening to me when I express mine, I am sometimes ignored for days, or weeks with no answer. So he's my answer. I Quit. Not that it really matters, since i'll be replaced in days. I'm tired of being inconsequential, or just a number as i was made to feel. Sorry. @DrMax - You're truly a sweetheart. Keep on the right track and don't change a thing. @Harvey - I'll likely miss you most. I'm sad we won't get to work together. @Stagsview - I tried. I'm sorry. @GenjiRP @Zanaan @Dakotaen @Flapjack @Svenne - Good luck and remember you're a TEAM. It's not all about you doing all the work.

    Hello all, I was notified earlier today that my position was no longer necessary and that I was to be forced out of LM. For better or for worse I understand the decision if it is a little disappointing. I was never the most visible staff or the one who did the most work, but I did take all my work very seriously and I hope the stuff I did that was visible to the community was at least appreciated. It's hard to think that I had been in staff for seven months and in that time I was able to work and hangout with many great people, most of which are still with us. I'd like to thank the staff team, past and present, for assisting me but even more importantly for simply doing their job. A lot of what staff does, especially the moderators and support is never made public and therefore goes unnoticed. I'll end this staff termination thread with a very short list of thank you's. @Major-What can I say, you always were the top LM and in some way, you probably always will be and we both know I never would have joined staff if you weren't in it already. I look forward to that beach trip @Taryn-Although we didn't work with each other for all too long I came to count you even after you changed positions. You will make a great GM. @Dvlinhb @Kain @Mademoiselle -To the next generation of LM's, I'm sorry it had to turn out this way, but even if y'all aren't apart of staff, you just as well should be. Keep doing what y'all doing, and only good things will come. And one final thank you to everyone who helped with any event or simply just sent me a lore questions on the forums. That might seem petty, but every time I could do my job and help someone out made me feel really satisfied. This is LM PCJames, signing off, (from staff)

    I cannot believe I am doing this... but... After tonight, I just cannot continue with this community... I have finally come to realization, no matter what RP in here is dying. There are so many different types of people in this community, which makes it good and interesting, but also creates loads of issues. Certain types of people you can talk to, but you can see they will never see your side of the story, no matter how many times you have tried to talk with them, point out issues and emphasize that RP should take the priority... their focus is something else. Hey after tonight if I met said guys, who knows we could be best buddies... but on RP and what it is supposed to be, we will never see eye to eye. I am sorry you can not see my side and I am sorry... but I feel to continue in this community and share my RP with said people I would have to lower my RP standards... it is something I will never do. @Roland I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for setting this community up. I mean the friendships I have had and still have with some of the people from 2013... I still hang with them every day and play other games although they left community when Arma2 DayZRP mod fell... I mean the memories are great... but like I said before... in these 5 years, being constantly active throughout, I have sadly also witnessed the downfall of the community... the focus seems to have shifted ever since I think when we went to Standalone (I supported switching with 2 hands and still do)... but the community itself changed... it become more memes, shade throwing and banter... Whilst we had problems back in the day, community as a whole felt more as a family... we fought IC and OOC but at the end of the day... 2 enemies IC could still have a laugh about it OOC... they were friends... I miss that community. Anyways, thank you all for being part of my life for 5 years... there are too many people to name, but thank you all. You all made this a wonderful place to be in... The memorize, relationships, creative ideas, experience is more that I could ever ask for. Thank you DayZRP !

    Well I have just been informed that the Loremaster position has been abolished. It has been an interesting run, not really ended how I wanted it to but it is what it is. I was planning on coming back to staff this next weekend to start to write events for .63 but it looks like that is out the window. Thanks for having us guys, we never got the guidance from where we needed it most, but I made some great friends in my time here who I will go on to do more stuff with. It was pretty shit how things ended, and to even have to reach out for an answer as to whether I was even still gonna be LM after James got booted. I was offered a position as a moderator for my 1+ year of service as LM but I turned it down as I don't much care for being around on that side of things. I know how the system operates and figured I would eventually get rolled over too. This community is a shell of what it used to be and I don't recognize it as what it was not that long ago. I honestly don't foresee me playing or doing anything with this place anytime soon. Please don't hesitate to contact me. Major, signing out for the last time.

    Yeah... No. Group threads are for feedback, not for "goodlucks" and "hope you get approved soon". They are mainly there so people can give you feedback, like @Mademoiselle just did. Reading through her feedback, it was in depth and constructive and not "trash" or "crap" like you dismissed it. Your replies are pretty hostile, I suggest toning it down a notch and read over this again before you dismiss feedback like that and tell the person to take their "trash" to PMs. Don't see feedback as a personal attack, see it as a way of improving your RP.

    Fooled ya. I'm going through some shit right now (mostly psychological) and really need some personal time, what with moving and whatnot. I won't have internet for a couple of weeks because of that and there's a lot of shit I need to figure out before I can focus on staff stuff on here. I will be dropping in here and there where I'm needed in staff comms. Anyone that needs me can drop me a message like usual or contact me on Discord. Stay safe boys and girls.

    The Battle of Novy Sobor On the afternoon of April 7th, 2018 a massive confrontation took place between the forces of the Coalition with the support of the Chernarussian Air Force's Mig-23s and reconnaissance drones and the forces of Anarchy. The battle began with the amassing of Coalition forces to the south around Zub and to the north near the Prud Castle. Coalition units converged on the town following an airstrike of chlorine gas from the CAF. The shooting started as Coalition units clung to fences north of the city, aswell as using the dry riverbed near the barns as cover for a dozen-man assault. Several Coalition teams were ambushed in the confusion as friendly sniper teams took up positions in the north treeline and also in the south-west. Several members of Anarchy were killed in the pitched battle as the shooting raged back and forth over the city. As the Coalition's forward forces were eliminated or retreated, Anarchy launched several mobile death squads to hunt down Coalition forces, all under the constant fire of snipers. Pushing out from the church and town, Anarchy advanced to the west of the farm, killing several and linking up with other units. At this point, Anarchy forces in the west pivoted to the north and took withering fire from the western treeline at a hunting stand. As a Commander of the Belozersk People's Republic who was supporting Anarchy laid down cover fire the squad advanced, taking out one sniper and pushed several more back, eventually killing another north-west of Stary Sobor, but not without first losing one of it's own members in the chase. Anarchy forces swung back towards Novy Sobor as the fighting continued to rage to the north. Eventually, another Anarchy squad was dispatched to clear the northern treeline after rescuing Luke Krey south of town. This squad took heavy fire as it went north but it was ultimately able to hunt down and kill 3 of the Coalition's members in that area. After this the squad went back to the east, securing the radio tower before returning to the Guglovo area where fighting continued right up to the area south of Novy Sobor. A confrontation occurred at the medical facility, and during this time Coalition forces killed two more Anarchy members in Novy Sobor and held the church. The battle ended after some two hours of all-out war, with many people participating in the fighting who had unclear motivations or allegiances. Several dozen members of the Coalition were killed, and with significantly lower numbers of Anarchy being lost. In the end each side spent large amounts of time in skirmishes after the initial massive engagement, but overall the battle took place in the entire area of Stary Sobor, Novy Sobor, Guglovo, Altar Radio Station, Gorka outskirts, and the countryside around Novy Sobor to the south. Even with the heavy support of 2 CAF Mig-23s and several drones the gas attack wasn't enough to dislodge Anarchy from the town, with the first airstrike hitting the police station and the second area striking the barn complex, an area that was largely deserted at that point. Chernarussian attempts to provide up-to-date intel on Anarchy movements were disrupted by jamming of drone to command communications by BPR scouts. Spetsnaz that were friendly to and supported the Coalition made little visible impact upon the battle, however the effect of their logistical support and training is yet to be fully realized. Prior to the battle Anarchy's David Anderson met with forward ambassadors of the Belozersk People's Republic, taking delivery of several Sa-7 MANPADs (man-portable air-defense systems) and 10 missiles, which are sure to critically impede any future air force sorties in the area. This support from the BPR may give Anarchy the edge to defeat the advance forces of the government and also to hold off and destroy the Coalition. The heavy losses of the Coalition only resulted in the death of a fraction of Anarchy's force, but it must be mentioned that this force has been worn down by the fighting, airstrikes, and battle wounds and will need time to recover. The Coalition's manpower is also much larger than Anarchy's, and as such it can take fewer losses than the former. The quality and skill of Anarchy's forces are also far beyond that of the Coalition, demonstrating tactical proficiency and communication not seen with Coalition's massive force. Anarchy still holds Novy Sobor and its gun embargo remains in place in the aftermath of the attack. The future of the conflict is unsure and due to the confusion and chaos of the battle both sides are certain to seek further bloodshed... //This post is not perfect as I only witnessed the event from one perspective, but following the battle I reached out to as many people involved and got several perspectives on what went down in several places. Had a great time and I am looking forward to the fallout from the battle and future events!
