    Question for @Roland You removed me from staff with no warning other than this message: You said that "to go as far as to recommend people to go to other servers to play crosses the line for me..." You deleted my original post that I presumed got me removed: In the last paragraph I said "I'd suggest looking elsewhere for fresh new stuff outside of changing dates or server Lore". I'm not sure how that could be construed as me recommending people to go play elsewhere. You don't stay in a Loremaster position for the better part of 2 and a half years in the community to simply throw it away by telling people to leave. That is absurd. I told people to look elsewhere for solutions outside of changing Lore. My 2 posts in this thread were not inherently positive, but neither is a doctor when he walks into the room and tells you that you have a serious disease and that they are going to treat you for it. We were discussing a problem in the community, I didn't agree that the proposed solution would work and was advocating for my point of view. If you think that the view I put across or the way I got it out there was unbecoming of a staff member then that's understandable. If a larger enough portion of the community wants a certain course of action I will help them achieve it, even if I personally don't think that would be the best option. At the end of the day, I'd just like a little more explanation regarding my removal, maybe even to come back if we can talk and come to some sort of understanding as to how you expect things to be. This is extremely unfair to me to just simply be removed over something that I can distinguish as none other than an incorrect opinion held by myself, and wording that made you believe I was telling people to go to other communities.

    Some people rob for food, others for guns and some for... shoes. But it makes no difference to John Smith. They are all bandits in his eyes. Here is a clip of the notorious man himself facing against a gang of wrong doers.

    You know what. No. Just reread your last post to make sure im not crazy. You are researching members of the community's personal history without permission. You may think you are doing them a favor, and hell in a couple cases you might have, but in the process you've violated the trust of the community. @J1988Dizzle will be permanently removed from the community and the group archived. I apologize to anyone affected by this.

    Based on the popular request, I present you my idea of group settlements: What I'm unsure about: Are these requirements reasonable? Is the evolution idea good, considering increased workload? And if so... Is the evolution timer long enough, perhaps it should be monthly? Maybe we should require scrap and wooden logs to be "offered" to a GM (who then deletes them) as a requirement for upgrades? Maybe we should just get a developer who will be dedicated to handling these things? Anything else that I should think about that I've forgotten?

    While I was modifying loot table for performance increase, I have changed the spawning system we use for weapons. Because change is nice Up until now, weapons spawned in a limited number, depending on total number of type on the server, including how many were stashed in tents and players had in their inventories. For example, we had max amount of AK74 set to 50, and if 30 players had this AK on them and another 20 AKs were stashed inside various tents or storage around the map, no more new AKs would spawn at any barracks. So if you wanted an AK at this point, the only way to get one was to rob/trade with a player who had it, or raid a base. This system, while enforced strict scarcity and made weapons rare as it limited the number of weapons server wide to a static number has a large drawback of hoarding, where if too many weapons are stored away inside bases they will no longer be accessible to other players. So I have decided to change back to the default spawning system that all other items use, which will only take into consideration the amount of weapons presently available in loot spawning locations. With this system the number of weapons spawned is technically infinite, as new weapon will spawn as soon as they are picked up by players. This is fixed by appropriately decreasing the spawn numbers. So now, at most 10 AK74 will spawn around the map. Once a few of those are picked up or stored by players, a few more will spawn, repeat. Basically, system will aim so that there are always between 3 and 10 AKs available at all times in looting locations on the map, no matter how many are already stored or used by players. Obviously, some high end or rare weapons like M110 have min:0 max:1 values, which means there will at most be only one weapon of this type on the entire map, and sometimes none at all. Hopefully this should keep weapons relatively hard to find, while not making it impossible to find a certain type of weapon because it is stored in a 4 story superbase. After all, weapons are here to be enjoyed and used, not stored in tents Let me know how this change affects you and if you prefer this way over the old system.

    Since our active player numbers have dropped recently and we can't fill two servers anymore I was thinking about locking S2 once again like we used to before, where you couldn't join S2 until S1 was above 60 players or so. This would increase population density on S1 where majority of RP would happen, with S2 being an overflow server. This however degrades S2 to a temporary server of sorts and not many people want to play there, since they can't access their bases when S1 is not full. So I got a different idea - instead of locking S2 and reducing it to a shadow of former self, we can run S2 on a different map. Then the two servers don't have to "compete" with each other for population, since they are completely separated from each other. And we might even get more players interested in playing again. The map chosen is Deer Isle - this is the only good quality map which is being actively worked on and updated on regular basis for DayZ right now. Only the southern part of the island is finished as of now, but that should be plenty for the population expected to play there. Check the map of the island here (switch to satellite view) We have to still decide on the lore aspect of it, where the island should be located - I am thinking this map should replace Utes - it's part of Chernarus and close enough to south zagoria shore to make it realistically possible for your characters to travel between the two maps. We would have to rename the villages and towns to Czech though, since the original map is based on a location in US and town names are English. Once we decide on the outcome, a lore update will follow together with official launch of the server on the new map.

    Your group and your allies initiated on WP and Legion 9 times in a 6 day period, 3 of these instances you showed up with well over 20 people. The difference is, you guys know we won't throw up a 2.3 report because we disagree with the implementation of it, now when I spoke to Gallows and Mouse I told them exactly that. We don't report unless it's something major or outrageous would much rather speak to the people involved, which is exactly what we did when Black Roses invalidly initiated via megaphone, and your allies straight up didn't initiate before entering a firefight. The key thing that s being argued here isn't an inherit flaw in the rule, but the attitude of those who push it. There are 2 large seperations between these groups. 1: The valid claim The valid claimant is usually a medium sized group of veteran community members who have never been to keen on the combat aspect of the game. Fair enough not everyone enjoys combat, then a hostile group sets their sights on these indivduals and repeatedly harasses them for little to no reason other than the desire for gear. The defending complies in almost every case with maybe one or two people attempting to fight back. And often the attacking group uses those one or two people as a justification to come back and attack. Which isn't fair to the group in a whole. A group as an example of this is the Toymakers, but luckily for them everyone who was in that group were absolutely outstanding. Some of the nicest people in the community so often times they would message the attack groups and try to just be honest with them, and often due to their reputation it sorted things out. Had they thrown up a 2.3 on those attacking them it probably would've been valid. 2: The invalid claim (sometimes used as blackmail) And here we come to the invalid claimant, the invalid claimant comes from 3 places. The first comes from a genuine place and you can't fault them for it. Usually it's the people who simply mis-understand or whatever it may be, these people often just take on the rule into their reports after being attacked 3 or so times in like a week and a half by one group and are just throwing things at the wall in order to compound the rule breaks to just be certain that at least one ban is given out in the verdict. The second comes from groups that yes are being attacked often, but attack as well. And not only do these groups go on the counter-offensive but they also shit talk on radio threads and attempt to big dick in character as well. In my opinion the moment you decided to big dick OOC about the amount of kills you get during PvP or start to make coalitions against certain groups which number in the 40s-70s you lose the ability to make a genuine 2.3 claim because you vastly outnumber the aggressor and if you were given the opportunity these groups would un-undoubtedly take the members of the aggressing group hostage and would execute them. And often if the aggressing group had a base instead of being a roaming horde akin to the Beastmen from Warhammer they would be the first people to raid that base. Groups that fall into this category are groups like Wolfpack, where often @Huntercan be seen dishing out not only kills, but shit talking and aggression both in game and on the radio threads. (love u hunter stop smokin pls <3). The attitude that Hunter's character displays in game and on radio threads leads to his group getting in to a large amount of hostile encounters that in the end show that the Wolfpack is equally an instigator as they are a victim. And finally option 3, the blackmail. The blackmail option mixes with option 2 very well, the people that fall into option 3 are often the same people that instigate in character hostilities and refuse to accept the IC consequences whether that be a PK, being exiled from their group or location, or permanent scaring in some sort. As a result of this they often bring the mere mention of these consequences they begin to threaten the aggressing group OOC that if they didn't leave them alone they would throw up a 2.3 and get all of them perm'd. It is an easy contrast between the example of the former Toymakers mainly Jadeboat JKpfrog ScarlettRose Malthis and whoever else I forgot to mention. These members always were respectful and never attempted to blackmail members with perms instead they very politely came to the other group in order to legitimately sort things out in a way that was enjoyable to both groups, and it showed in the longevity of their group and the quality of their roleplay. Anyway with all that being said, I hope you enjoyed my look at the 2.3 fiasco and hopefully learned something from how a "hostile RPer" views things. Although to be fair recently my campfireRP roots are showing a bit more. Regardless Thanks for Coming to My TED TALK

    Our active playerbase continues to grow for some unexplainable reason, and we are reaching new records in queue length to the server during peak times. I opened server 2 yesterday to temporarily help this issue, however as we all know it comes with a long list of problems on its own, including using the second server for looting, loot storage and ghosting into bases. At the same time we cannot expect to grow as a community and server if we cannot add additional servers and have enough slots for everyone. I have coded a little addition to the server player check today. What it does is it locks the second server until server 1 is 80% full. This happens automatically and without requiring staff to start/stop servers or do anything in particular. This way both S1 and S2 can stay permanently online, but S2 will only be usable once S1 fills up. Once S1 dips below the player threshold, an announcement will be sent to players on S2 and they will be kicked some time after in order to move to S1. The locked/unlocked status of the servers is displayed on the front page using a lock icon. This status is updated every 5 minutes.

    OREL Unit - "Kanec" OREL (Eagle) officers are called up for robberies, riots, and some limited anti-terrorist operations. They wear black high capacity vests, green Chernarussian berets, black Gorka helmets, OREL blue kamysh (tiger stripe) uniforms, and black military or combat boots. Occasionally some units will don military camouflage like Rastr, Reed, and green kamysh. OREL officers can be found at the bigger stations within cities in Chernarus. They are exceptionally well trained in hand-to-hand combat and close quarters combat. OREL officers are armed with the same armament that CPD officers are, but can carry AK-74s, SVDs, and other weapons that are more powerful. Many OREL officers are ex-CDF soldiers who sought careers outside of the military. (A member of the Kanec unit from Severograd during a losing firefight with Chedaki at the start of the Chernarussian civil war, 2009) Each unit adopts an animal or emblem as their mascot, often reflecting local wildlife or for historical reasons. OREL, like their OMON and Berkut brethren in Russia and Ukraine are typically depicted as brutal riot police by journalists and human rights organizations, but the reality of the situation is far more nuanced. They are trained for deployment into a variety of environments including mountains, artic tundra, and even NBC situations. These OREL units form the backbone of the Chernarussian Interior Ministry’s (MVD) spetsnaz units that work in close concert with the less numerous but nonetheless deadly COBR Spetsgruppas. Many OREL officers go on to join COBR and the level of cooperation between the two organizations is renowned. (they often target low-level street crime and more serious criminal activity) OREL units vary in size based on their home city and will frequently train alongside other units and even be called on to deploy to cities like Novigrad or Belozersk to contain riots or demonstrations that strain the capacity of local forces. 29th of July 2019, North-west wall, Silná Stránka-8, Miroslavl, Chernarus https://puu.sh/E2Bhl/a3eb4a1889.mp3 “Oheň své zbraně!” yelled Sergeant Dvorak as masked figures appeared along the perimeter fence in the distance. As the officers exposed themselves and began to open fire the radio that they had been using to listen to the enemy’s movements blared with frenzied Russian chatter. Sergeant Dvorak, whose arms were as big around as tree limbs and could bench press a log clenched his cigar in between his teeth, rapidly lifted his PKM into the firing port in the concrete wall and let loose a hail of lead into the enemy that illuminated the shadows cast by the setting sun. The enemy fighters began to fan out and rush to defensive positions, but not before the men had cut down 4 of them in open, and 2 more with the machine gun as they frantically ran back around the ruins of several burnt-out cars. (Colonel Martinek during a training exercise, 2018) Colonel Havel Martinek, the commander of the detachment stepped down from his perch and rested his binoculars back around his neck. “Good work Sergeant keep killing these Chedaki sons-of-bitches and I’ll have drinks sent up for you lads,” Colonel Martinek said. The sergeant nodded and took his PKM out of the stoop and set it aside on a table, removing the box magazine from the weapon and replacing it with a fresh one from a nearby crate. The Colonel disappeared around the concrete revetment and down a flight of stairs back to the command post below. Silná Stránka-8 was the last position on the massive almost palatial wall that separated Miroslavl from the rest of the wasteland. Colossal concrete pylons had been set up along the edge of a former Soviet concrete factory to provide a fantastic deterrent to anyone looking to attack the city. (one of the many outlying industrial areas around Miroslavl that has been fortified) Despite all the industrial implements and military fortifications civilians lived and worked less than half a kilometer from the area. It was not that dissimilar from the forts that had guarded Hadrian’s wall in England so many hundreds of years ago. Each Stránka had previously been occupied by armored CDF forces who had leveled broken concrete scraps into heaps some 50 feet high into gaps in the walls. Once that was complete they deposited more crushed rocks and concrete into a ramp so that T-72s and other vehicles could pull up to fire out at attacking forces, infected, or whatever posed a threat. (OREL officers desperately attempt to stop a riot during July 2017) The system had been completed in late 2017 when it became apparent that the city’s hastily thrown together barricades would not be enough. Since then there had been many conflicts and other calamities that had befallen the coast, and the system of concrete and steel had held through it all. But more important was the brave men that guarded the ramparts night and day, ensuring that the thousands of citizens within the city could sleep peacefully. (peaceful streets of Miroslavl, August 2019) As spring turned to summer, more and more CDF units were pulled back and deployed to the west to face the hordes of Islamists that threatened the country. This meant that positions formerly occupied by the CDF were handed over to local OREL units. OREL was a spetsnaz unit that specialized in dealing with riots and handling heavily armed criminals that proved too difficult for regular beat cops. They had a fearsome reputation and were known for the brutality that they often inflicted upon protesters and political dissidents. But that was before the world went to hell. (Members of the Kanec unit during the first months of conflict with the Belozersk People's Republic, 2017) Following the initial chaos of the riots and infected they were re-structured and militarized even beyond pre-outbreak levels. They were given BTRs, RPGs, and grenade launchers, even access to Mi-17 helicopters in some cases. Each major city in Chernarus typically has an OREL unit, and eventually the units from South Zagoria, northern Miroslavl, and Kirovograd trickled into the coastal areas. This maximized the number of officers clustered together along a thin expanse of ground, but also meant that they could make up for gaps left by the CDF when the military deployed or went on the offensive. (OREL officers line up during the sectarian unrest during May of 2017 just prior to the outbreak) OREL enjoyed a greater share of power as even those within its ranks were called upon to sally forth outside of the safezones and destroy wandering hordes or groups of bandits. They also began to take over positions in Miroslavl that were historically CDF points. Tanks, BMPs, and all manner of trucks and other equipment were often left behind by the CDF and were re-fitted and used by OREL to keep fire control over the distant wastes when the air force could not be called on. This left the remaining CDF forces in the city as a fire brigade, running from point to point when the OREL could not contain a situation. However, this was soon to change. No longer would OREL serve as mere watchers on the wall for civilization, they would in fact be deployed farther than they had ever gone to fulfill a mission from the highest authorities.

    “You didn’t expect this, did you?” says a man covered in dirt with a long grin on his face. “You prey upon the weak, belittle those that you deem beneath you, laugh in their faces as you point your precious gun at them and taking their stuff like it’s a charity.”, the man smirks as he nods towards his two colleagues. “You tell yourself you are invincible, you play god with people’s fate and lives and you keep lying to yourself that it’s the right thing. Which one was I supposed to be? The second? The fifth? The fifteenth?” “God! Please no!” yells the man laying on the ground as the two others approach him. “Oh, but don’t you worry… We see you now.” _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Global warming, wars, discrimination, poverty… all the problems that we once faced are now all gone. Those people that protested, people who fought for what’s right, who took time out of the little they had to try and make their quiet voices heard; their dreams came true. Funnily, it wasn’t them that changed it, no, it wasn’t some inspiring young genius that found the solution to all of this, no… What wiped the slate clean was in fact far worse than anything we had yet faced. All these issues disappeared and were forgotten about in mere moments as the world we lived in morphed into something new. People said it was Ebola, others blamed it on people eating meat, some believed it was some new virus coming out of China trying to eradicate us all. Theories and conspiracies were thrown like shit at brick walls, anything to keep them occupied from facing what was happening. It didn’t take long for the dead to begin roaming the streets. Some countries fell in the blink of an eye, some managed to hold out hope and some might still be fighting, but the landscape of our world has fundamentally shifted to a place of no return. In the midst of all this, there was but one thing that has changed and that is us. In fact this whole situation we find ourselves in has even brought us closer to who we really are. With no government to police people’s behaviour, we have all become free in a way. No longer are there boundaries we are told not to cross, social norms we must comply to nor people we have to greet with smiles and kisses when we know they are as much of an asshole as you can get. So while the world around us burns to ashes the question we should be asking ourselves is not what will become of it but what will become of us. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Well, what a day this was. I thought I’d lost you too. It was around 10 AM when I decided to head to this baby store I picked out on one of our maps. It was a quiet morning so I thought that might be my only chance, so I got my bag, grabbed Sofia and got on the boat. As per usual, Venice’s canals were full of both dead and alive bodies, but still safer than taking the main streets. I was half-way there when I heard some shots fired pretty close, just a couple of streets away. Shots crack off inside the city almost hourly, that’s the norm, but this time I was out in the open and exposed. I’d write more about the interim but I don’t remember much leading up to the main event. All I know is that at some point I looked to my right and this figure jumped from the streets on top of my boat. The air filled with my startled yells and I tried to punch whoever this was out of my boat, but it was just a matter of seconds before he hit me in the head with what I think was a pistol. He grabbed me by the hair and pointed it at me. That is when I saw him. Blood covered his face, angry eyes staring at me, heavily breathing, clearly trying to catch his breath. Words came from his mouth but they were foreign to me, I think he was Slovenian. He pointed towards the other shore, so before he decided to pull some more of my hair out I pushed the boat that way. He began climbing onto the street when he noticed my backpack. Just like in the films we looked at each other and tried grabbing the backpack. The damn thing was empty anyway but he either didn’t care or couldn’t understand what I was saying to him. I tried to fight it but to no avail. He grabbed it and started climbing again. As I began to crumple in defeat, a loud noise cracked sharply from behind me, echoing down the narrow canal. My ears were ringing as the body of the man thumped back onto the boat, almost capsizing it with heavy shaking. I grabbed the backpack first, then looked at where the man jumped on my boat from. A group of people stood there, silent, four or five... maybe... rifles in hand, one of them aimed at where my attacker had taken his last breath. Running never even occurred to me, having been overwhelmed by the shock. For a moment I thought they would shoot me too, but just as one of them was about to speak more shots came from behind them. They looked at each other, nodded, one of them waved at me and just like that they were gone. Sofia’s cries snapped me back to reality, welcoming me back with the realisation that my face was covered in his blood. I pushed the body into the canal and carried on towards the store, got the baby food and now I am somehow back in one piece. One question keeps rattling through my mind: who were they? _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Day 419. Things were looking good. People seemed happy, the walls looked strong, we had plenty of food. Tereza had done an amazing job here. She had that fierce, determined look even the day we married. It was midday I think, I was talking with this kid, Jan, when everyone heard the lookout scream that someone is coming. I ran to the watchman’s tower and climbed in what felt like 2 seconds, grabbed my binoculars and looked for myself. It was a man, pretty tall, ragged clothes, so gaunt and disheveled had he not been holding a bag in his right hand you could have definitely mistaken him for one of the sinners. I looked back, trying to find Tereza but she wasn’t there. Must have been in the infirmary. I guess I had to think for myself for once. I signaled the watchers to be prepared as the man was approaching our gates. When he arrived within speaking distance, I asked him who he was and what he wanted. He simply looked at me. I could almost feel the sadness in his eyes. It didn’t last long, as he just keeled over right in front of our doors. If this was a trap then it’s a damn good one. I climbed down and before long I felt myself pacing back and forth, I could tell the rest were looking at me waiting on my call. “God, what should I do?” I remember asking myself. My conscience got the better of me and, the next thing you know, we were carrying him to the infirmary. He seemed to regain consciousness and started muttering something so we sat him down on a chair. I rehydrated him and we gave him some space to relax before questioning him. Words didn’t come easily, it seemed like he’d gone a while without proper food and water, topped off by the fact that he’d sustained a bullet wound some time ago. Before we could get to any more talking, the door behind me crashed open, sending a loud shudder through the room. Tereza was standing there with a face that said more than I’ll ever write in this thing. I got out of the room and closed the door behind me. What followed were screams and berates that I have never seen, not even when I called her fat by accident that one time. I wanted to argue my side but it was clear it wasn’t a discussion. Two guards came in, grabbed Tomas and carried him away. Apparently, we can spare neither food nor meds for “outsiders” she called them. This wasn’t like her to be so territorial but I guess with everything changing around us, so must we. Day 421. Don’t even know where to start this one. It was a… weird day. Me, Teresa, Jan and 2 others were in the back of this garage, we were looking for something electrical. I still don’t know what we picked up, I was just there to show Jan how the supply runs usually work and to keep him from messing anything up. Anyway, Teresa put some bit of kit in her bag and we stepped through the front door. As we moved outside, the sound of a safety switch flicking snapped off to my right, paired with voices and men to match those voices, all with rifles aimed at us. They had us dead to rights, easily 7 of them ready to fight and us loaded down with equipment. We are good at farming and repairing things, it lent itself well to creating our home. Fighting, however, has never been our forte. We put down the guns and raised our hands right above our heads. One of them quickly moved towards us but instead of grabbing our things, he grabbed Teresa by the shirt and pulled her forward right in front of all of us. No point in lying, I was a pussy and didn’t say a damn thing. I closed my eyes and waited for the bang but when I opened them all I saw was the same Tomas she kicked out 2 days ago, sitting crouched right next to her, telling her something none of us heard. When he finished, I felt my heart nearly stop as he turned his gaze towards me. To our surprise, they didn’t take our stuff; no, they just let us go but with one condition and a warning. We grabbed our stuff and headed home, warily looking over our shoulders the whole time in case it was some sort of sick game. I tried to comfort Teresa, as she was crying, probably thought that would be the end of her just like I did, but she still hasn’t fully snapped out of the shock. Judging from the mutterings around me, people think she isn’t fit to lead. Tomorrow, if she isn’t better, I’ll be assuming a much more… generous command, as instructed by Tomas. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ That fucking snake. I shouldn’t have trusted him. For three fucking days we ran together. Stupid piece of shit. We stumbled upon each other in the middle of town. I was getting ready to go to sleep in this shitty McDonalds when he came out of the back. “Friendly! Friendly!” he yelled. Should have shot him right there, but no… I tried to act like the good guy for once. I mean we bonded pretty fast, Artyom and I. Probably a fake name now that I think about it. He said he saw me come in and he had a plan to get out of town. Place was full of fucking drunk heads and I didn’t have any better ideas, so I listened. Apparently, there were a few working cars at the OOO Car Factory close to the exit of the town up near Myru Ave. He said he needed help finding some fuel and carrying it there. You can’t really hold a fuel can and shoot at the same time or so my dumb ass believed him. Next morning we set off to make our escape. We looked around town but didn’t really find anything, so we decided to push closer to the factory. The fucking things were everywhere but this Artyom fuck seemed not to give a shit. Again my dumbass didn’t question it and before we knew it, we were standing in the pitch black with nothing but dog shit and tomatoes to our name. Fuck me. We broke into some school and slept there for the night. He told me he really needed that car, his wife was sick in Velyki or some small town fuck knows where north of here. Apparently, he came here to get some meds and he showed me some antibiotics and shit. I mean, it’s the end of the fucking world who am I to question him. We woke up and tried again. I remembered an Okko Gas Station close to the hospital, which was in our direction anyway so we went there to check it out. I went inside while Artyom was checking the pumps. The store room was easy to get into, after searching it I opened a door to the next room and wouldn’t you know this fucking drunk head flew out on top of me, looking to give me one last goodnight kiss. Snake or not, Artyom knew what was going on and shot it deader than it already was. Problem was it alerted all these fuckers around, which, if you hadn’t already fucking guessed, was more than a lot. We made a run for the hospital with them hot on our tail, then barricaded ourselves inside. Another day, another fucking failure. At that moment I thought of him as a brother. Saved me from death and all that. Told him a bit about myself. How I was once sober but now I can’t be asked to keep it that way. He laughed with me. What a fucking actor. Next day we kept moving up the road. There was an ANP gas station and opposite of it a car part store quite close to the factory, so it sounded like the perfect spot, almost too good to be true. Our golden spot wasn’t just ours, there was another man there when we arrived, covered in muck and carrying… a fuel can. I heard people see shit in the desert, well I at that moment I thought I was in fucking Sahara. “I need that fuel. Should we rob him?” I couldn’t believe that this houseman Artyom was asking me to rob someone. Well, I’ve done it before so fuck if I cared. Ran up to the guy, didn’t say a word and just took him down. If I were born in America I’d be a fucking megastar football player. I told Artyom to come tie this shit head on the ground. He comes up and instead of fucking taking out the rope, he pulled his gun and smacked me in the face with it. Mother fucking snake. And then guess what, more fucking idiots showed up. Fucking picked me up from the ground and started laying in punches like fucking savages. Made me spit 2 of my teeth out just for agreeing to rob this dirty fuck. And if this shit couldn’t get any worse, snake Artyom picked up by last bottle of vodka and smashed in on my head, fucking waster of resources. And when I thought it was over that dirty fuck gets right over my body with a the stupidest grin I have ever seen and starts going on a monologue as to how I am the scum of the Earth or some shit. They fucking took my guns too. What am I going to rob people with now, my fucking tuna? Artyom… Stupid bitches. No clue who they are but fuck them. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So you wonder who we are… where we’ve been… what we’ve done.

    No. Mouse decided to ingame tendie and broke multiple server rules in the process, as well as PMing a staff member about him wanting to leave the community. When he broke the rules in such an extreme manner he essentially gave everyone else on the server KOS rights on him. The people that did in fact kill him did the community a great service. You should be thanking them, not wishing for punishment...

    “Do you want redemption?” Redemption took the form of a knife to flesh, the etching of a sin into already damaged skin in the trees outside of Eden. The word was worn as both a badge of honor and a reminder not to repeat past mistakes. Neither Constance nor Kase had any idea the symbolism the moment held, or how those symbols would lead them out of a self-inflicted hell. "Set her in the back seat of the car and I'll drive us out. It's not safe here." Sosnovka was the beginning and the end for Marcus, Kase, and Constance. All three had signed their souls to the proverbial devil in order to gain protection from the outside world, but it was at the cost of their own sense of morality. The catalyst came at the loss of a loved one and the callousness with which the death was handled. Constance broke down, unable to comprehend her failure to protect someone she called family. Kase was steadfast in serving to protect Constance and Marcus, while Marcus took charge in leading the three of them out of Sosnovka to safety. They drove to Northwest Checkpoint hoping to start a new life at the gas station, out of the way. Lost souls wandered upon them, people were invited, and not three days in death had been invited to their doorstep from someone they had welcomed in. It was a breaking point for them all. All ties needed to be broken and rebuilt. Those outside of the immediate family were to not be trusted. With the aid of the Mafia; Marcus, Kase, Constance and a young kid named Luke all packed up and disappeared to a new life. They were tired of running, tired of letting everyone else determine their lot in life. They wanted to return to normality, to morals and peace. Each had their role to play in helping the family and once the family was back on its feet, they could begin aiding others in finding their way back to peace. We aren't religious, but we can't deny the moral teachings represented by the Capital Vices. Morality and humanity are grossly absent, replaced by hedonism and self-service. How can we expect the world to heal without purpose or direction? We are here to offer guidance and purpose to those who seek redemption and self-improvement. We aim to own our flaws and sins so we can work towards overcoming them, or using them to our advantage so we might help heal both ourselves and others Set up a food drive event to further the group's humanitarian efforts. (735) Set up a blood drive event to further the group's humanitarian efforts. (745) Empower a resident of the sanctuary to continue the organization of said sanctuary moving forward. (750) Reach out to the Liquidators to identify their goals and motives to determine if we wish to aid them. (755) Work with major trade alliance to establish trade routes through Chernarus. (770) Begin working on establishing a secondary sanctuary for those who wish to better themselves. (780) Identify the needs of those living in and around the secondary sanctuary.

    After seeing Dusty's recent amnesty appeal being denied I have to wonder, what's someone's incentive to go through the final process? What's the point if they can just not accept it because...they don't like you I guess? It just seems a little odd to string someone along for three months, never telling them where and if they're slipping up at all, and not even using their one caution just to deny them after three months? He didn't get any posts removed or warned, he was active in game and on the forums, and didn't use a caution and yet he was still denied without being provided any evidence as to what his "bad attitude" on the forums was at all. Is the plan just to string him along for another three months? Is he going to wait six months and not do anything wrong, be active on forums and in game just to be denied again? That's half a year. I don't know. Maybe this verdict would feel less slimy if it had literally any evidence or examples or reasoning behind the denial beyond "Lol we don't like u" to it. But it didn't. Just feels like certain people that aren't liked by staff are just taken for their 50 euros, strung along for three months, and they just kind of hope you slip up and even if you don't, they'll just deny you regardless. To be honest even to this day I'm kind of nervous on the forums because, even if you manage to make it through all that, sometimes you'll just get permed anyways even after being off final. The whole amnesty process seems very flawed and run in a dishonest way to me. I'd love to hear the communities and staffs opinions and reasoning behind this decision though because from where i'm standing, it just seems like you said no because you didn't want to say yes, and not much else.

    Evening gamers! we all know now that approved groups can have a base implemented. Sounds good right? Who doesn't love some new area in the map, especially if its for yourself, you don't have to build shit. Back in the mod, the bases implemented would be a fortified broken down castle with some barriers or a little compound with 2 or 3 houses and a couple small walls. You had to have an entire thread detailing what it is, how it got there and the rules associated with it. It was a very difficult thing to accomplish. In the current times, we have a magically appeared 10+ semi detached buildings on the sea at the coast with only ONE entrance, a 50m approach to the buildings by a funnel bridge with minimal cover and not to mention a large clock tower for sniping those lovely raiders. The base was never really used, can live with that. The one that currently bothers me: a pop up CITY just a short jog south of the largest military base in Chernarus, Tisy. 3 metre tall walls, MULTIPLE city type shops and buildings, the building that is on prison island that makes prison island special. TWO entrances, wait that's okay isn't it? Not when they are in line with eachother in a very tunnel like aspect where any and all raiders will make a last stand raid like the that movie the last samurai. Why are such overpowered bases allowed to be implemented. What is the lore reason for a MASSIVE CITY popping up in an open field. Group implemented bases should only be what is actually realistic to construct, some wooden houses, couple small walls, few barriers maybe even a well. I personally think this is ridiculous, especially allowing this fortress/city of a base to be right next to the biggest military spawn in the map? What is everyone else's views on this? Also calling in @StagsviewRB for his lore opinion on our latest flat pack city pop ups.

    ''Hidden far in the western woods, the sound of music can be heard on the breeze'' Mr. Redwood There is a dusty old farmhouse in the little town of Bor, where once lived an old man. He lost himself in crackling vinyl. Records were everywhere in the house. Every single record was placed in alphabetical order in big oaken cupboards. He almost never came outside and didn’t talk to most of his neighbours, but one couldn’t pass his house without hearing music coming from some open window. At first the man didn’t even notice when the outbreak raged over the lands. He wasn’t connected the power grid anyway, so his records just kept on playing when the power went off. One day someone knocked aggressively on his door. It sounded like the person was trying to break down the door. The man stopped his turntable for once and walked up to his front door. Looking through the eyepiece he saw a man in torn down clothes with blood all over him. The old man yelled that he should leave. The only response he got was a loud beastly scream. He put some extra locks on the door. Just in case. He went back to his living room and started the turntable again. He put the volume up a little louder to be able to ignore the weird man at the front of his house. The next day everything got even worse. It sounded like multiple people were around his house now. He went looking again, only to find a whole group of these weird looking people. This time not only at his door but around his entire house. They were standing at every window and door. The old man started to panic and searched for everything he could find to barricade his house up. It worked. He managed to keep them outside. But for how long would it hold? Suddenly a loud gunshot could be heard in the town. All the knocking sounds stopped at once. The beastly screaming seemed to slowly fade away. The man peaked through the eyepiece again and saw all the people walking away in the direction of the gunshot. This was the chance he had been waiting for. He opened the door and ran towards his neighbour’s house. Only to find the house abandoned. Not only his neighbours house, but the entire town appeared to be empty. Not a single soul was around anymore. The beastly screams started to come closer again and the man ran back to his house as fast as he could. Locked everything up and hoped for the best. Alex Alex took out his binoculars and looked at the town in the distance. It looked like there were no infected in the town. A perfect chance to fill up his supplies. The town still looked very decent. Most houses were almost untouched. Alex wasn’t just looking for food and water. He hoped to find things that would remind him of the old world. While checking the houses, he suddenly heard infected screaming in the distance. He decided to quickly look on the streets. A group of infected were surrounding what seemed to be an old farmhouse. He didn't keep track of his surroundings while looking at the house. Suddenly one infected stood dangerously close to him. In a split second he had to decide if he would shoot it or not. The infected didn't leave him much choice because it started running in his direction. Alex shot, but what he didn't realise is that all the infected that were surrounding the house, were now coming after him. In his attempt to escape, he ran towards the radio tower on the hill. They couldn't catch him if he was up there. He had never climbed up a ladder as fast as he did that day. Out of breath he reached the top of the ladder. Alex had been in situations like this before, so he came prepared this time. He carried a road flare with him. In attempt to lure the infected away, he threw the flare into the field. It worked. Most infected walked away, but there was still a couple of infected left at the tower. Right at that moment he spotted someone crouching through the bushes. The person was wearing a suit and a cowboy hat. While Alex was observing the figure, suppressed shots killed the remaining infected. A male voice yelled at Alex to come down. Alex did just what he was told. Downstairs he followed the man back toone of the towns barns. Depressed cowboy Two groups of survivors showed up at the Zelenogorsk bar that evening. Jan was, as usual, doing a live performance in the bar. It was a great atmosphere. Everyone was enjoying themselves with a beer and some live music. Almost forgetting the shit hole, they are living in. Jan decided to do a little night walk when everyone left. He was too busy in his head to sleep anyway. He walked up the hill towards Bor. Jan figured it would be a nice trip if he went from that hill to Drozhino and then back to Zelenogorsk. From the top of the hill, he could see the town of Bor. It looked rather peaceful, but suddenly a loud gunshot came from the town. It wasn’t as peaceful as it looked. Jan walked towards the radio tower. He could probably get a better view of the situation from up there. Lots of infected were screaming from the town. Probably responding to the loud gunshot. But these sounds only became louder when Jan neared the radio tower. He took out his pistol and slowly moved through the bushes towards the tower. A bright flash flew went through the air and a group of infected rans in front of him. Still he heard more infected at the radio tower. He checked if the pistol was loaded properly before he moved towards the radio tower. Yet again there was a group of infected at the bottom of the tower. They were all looking up at the tower. Up in the tower was the person that was probably responsible for the loud gunshot. Jan helped the man out. Shot the infected with some supressed shots and yelled at him to come downstairs. They walked towards the nearest barn they could find and started to talk things over. Alex explained what happened to him and that he found this house surrounded by infected. Jan suggested to go checking on that house as soon as the sun would rise. They went back to Zelenogorsk to get some rest for the night. Investigation The next day that left Zelenogorsk early. They walked back up the hill towards Bor. On the hill they both checked the town with their binoculars. Again, it looked rather peaceful and quiet. slowly they moved a bit south, through the treeline over the hill, to get a better view on the house Alex described. They were almost back at the point where they met last night. Alex suggested to get on the radio. He remembered he had a clear view on the house from up there. And he was right. As soon as they were up there, they could see a big group of infected surrounding the house again. They had to plan first if they wanted to check on the house. Otherwise they would only end up as infected breakfast. The flare didn't quite work last time, so they had to try something different. After many thoughts, Jan came up with a genius idea. He had this cassette player with him that he used back in the day to make simple demos. In the shed next to the tower, was a box filled with variety of electronic devices. Among them they also found a megaphone. The plan was to let the cassette play in front of the megaphone. All the infected will be lured towards the megaphone, which gives them the opportunity to check on the house. They did exactly that. Jan pressed the play button and ran towards Alex that was waiting for him on the dirt road. They slowly moved around the town towards the farmhouse. The sound of the infected seemed to move in the right direction. There wasn't a single infected left outside when they arrived at the house. The front door was locked, but one of the windows was wide open. Very quietly they tried to climb in the window. Once inside they found the house in a mess. Things were scattered all over the floor. It looked like something had raged through the room. They slowly walked through the house ending up at a stair. Footsteps could be heard upstairs. Jan took out his pistol and Alex his shotgun. Ready for if something went wrong. What they found was terrifying. An old man was on the ground with one of those infected right on him. Jan shot as fast as he could, trying to save the man. But it was too late. They dragged the infected away and checked if they could hear a heartbeat. CPR didn’t work anymore. The man was already turning cold. He passed away long before they entered the house. The collection The only right thing to do, was to bury the man. They dug his grave right next to the house. Alex made a wooden cross to give the grave some meaning. Normal funerals take place with friends and relatives, but both Alex and Jan didn’t know anything to say, as they didn’t even know the man. They filled up the grave, after a few minutes of silence. They went back inside the house, after the quite unusual funeral. Sitting down in the living room for a while, Jan started to notice the enormous oaken cupboards. He walked to one of the cupboards and opened it. It was filled with vinyl records. He checked the next cupboard and found even more records. He was astonished by what he had found. There even was a pristine turntable with both an amplifier and active speakers. The puzzle was completed by this found. The infected most have been attracted by the music coming from the house. Jan had never seen such a big collection. Everything from Nashville country hits to rock and roll and even some UK rock. Jan yelled at Alex who was looking around upstairs. Alex came down and was just as astonished as Jan was. They concluded that they couldn’t leave this collection behind. It was too valuable for some scavengers to it as a frisbee. Planning and execution are two completely different things. Jan and Alex planned to move the records to a place where they could safely store them, was easier said than done. First of they had to find a good location. Secondly, they needed to get the records from A to B. Thirdly they needed to be able to secure the collection. Jan knew a guy form Zelenogorsk that could probably help them out. They didn’t want to let people know about their treasure, but Jan knew they could trust this guy. The man from Zelenogorsk had an old Lada car with a trunk big enough to safely get all records in. Jan and Alex were waiting at the farmhouse for the car to arrive. It was a cold misty morning. The sun was about to rise but got blocked off by the thick layer of mist. They could hear the car coming in the distance. They picked up all the crates from the house and placed them in front of the door. The headlights hit their faces and the car stopped right in front of the house. The man stepped out and opened the trunk. Jan and Alex lifted as much crates as they could carry and put them in the car trunk. At this point, every single record was in that car. They hoped for the best and drove of in the morning sun. Radio time Arrived at their destination they unpacked the car and thanked the man from Zelenogorsk. They placed the crates in the corner of their new house. It was the perfect place. Far from the big trouble cities. Jan set up the turntable, so they could listen to some of the records. They had a great time with the music. Although Jan played music on his guitar from time to time, he never got to listen himself. This got him thinking. There is probably so many people out there that haven’t heard music since the outbreak. Out of experience, Jan knew people’s reaction to his live act in Zelenogorsk. Maybe there is a way to expand this idea of brining music to more people. Jan discussed this idea with Alex. Alex told him that he was handy with about everything mechanical. Combined with Jan’s knowledge of audio equipment, they came up with the idea of setting up a radio channel. A lot had to be done to realise this idea. Everything from finding a suitable working radio tower, connecting the right equipment and even getting the power going to get everything running. Supplies, supplies and supplies Setting up a radio station is far from easy. The first test run was done with an old military transceiver hooked up to a small handmade antenna. Alex had to hold it as high as possible and Jan put on a record and tested the signal. After four tries their maximum reach was one kilometer. They both were a bit let down by the results. They expected to achieve something better. The only thing they could do for now was go out and search for more and better supplies. Radio supplies are not common at all, so they pinned down multiple locations in the area where they thought they could be successful. First location being Pavlovo military base. They didn't know a lot about the place, but knew that it wasn't a regular military camp. Second location was Green Mountain. Jan told Alex it was a controversial location, because a lot of bad things happened around there. Still Alex wanted to see for himself. Third location was the TES recreational camping site near Myshkino. A relatively isolated camp, which to be able to communicate with the outside world should have some radio equipment around. Fourth location was Myshkino military camp. They would already be out in the area for the third location so why not check this camp. The findings weren't good nor bad. They found a lot of things that they were looking for, but most were not working or needed repairing. Alex knows some things about electronics, but this was too complicated even for him. They took the best looking supplies with them back to the house. They couldn't take everything they wanted to take from the fourth location, so they went back the next day. From a distance they could see that there were a lot of infected in the camp. There was nothing they could do to avoid them, so they had to find a strategic position and shoot them down. So they did. All the noise they made, had been heard around the area and some people came down to have a look. One of the guys was named Erik. At first Alex and Jan thought he was a local but apparently came from Finland. They had a little conversation going and talked about the radio experiment. Erik seemed rather interested in the idea and began to speak about his background as an engineer. He said he would probably be able to help them out. They took Erik back to their place and showed him what they had going on. Erik was quite impressed by the broadcast and music equipment, but made it clear that there was a lot to be done on the radio side of things. It took Eric about two weeks to fix the nearest radio tower. They all worked together from sunrise to sunset. Alex and Erik did the hard thinking and planning, while Jan did whatever he could do to assist them. The end result was impressive. In simple terms, they converted the radio tower from a repeater into a transceiver that had an impressive reach. After multiple tests the result was a radio reach with a diameter of fifteen kilometres. This really was the beginning of Redwood Radio. The first couple of broadcasts were made like this. Along the way they improved the broadcast wherever they could. At a certain moment they decided it would be better if they would reinforce the radio tower and live there. A lot of work had to be done to build an entire station around the tower. With a lot of supplies and multiple weeks of work they made it work. Redwood Radiostation was a thing. Multiple people showed up around the station. Some left after a while and some decided to stick around and help the cause. Almost every evening they did a music broadcast. The only thing that bothered Jan a bit was that they never knew how many people were listening. If there were any at all. They decided to continue regardless. The goal of the broadcast was to show people that there is still a civilisation out there. Even in the darkest evenings. Break-ins happened occasionally at the radio station. They mostly took a gun or two and left again. Never touching the equipment they valued the most. Though at the end of spring a certain burglar decided to take seven out of the eight generators out of the tower and damaged a lot of equipment. After that the music broadcasts became impossible. Too much power was needed and the signal was not coming through strong enough. They decided to travel to the west of South-Zagoria for a while to look for new radio equipment. In the end they came back with new supplies, but what they found when they came back was terrifying. Almost all of the walls were bashed open or completely missing. Inside the compound they found two bodies that only had one bullet hole per head. More gun shots came from the town. They packed what they could and moved out as fast as they could. Wandering through South-Zagoria to find a new home and continue the radio show. ''Way back home'' Find, set up and maintain a suitable location for the radio station.

    Clan Skins/Arm bands should be compulsory and free for approved groups. They should be made in order to prevent reports such as Miss-ID or impersonating other groups. I understand Devs work hard but aren't they already volunteering? Some gamemasters work their arse off with very complex reports spending their free time doing so, most of my friends that became Gamemasters never even go in game anymore because of the work they do on the forums after an already busy in real life day, should they not be paid for report verdicts if thats the case? The fact that once the group disbands which is inevitable every groups lasts 3 - 4 months tops, its just the way it is and then the clothing/band they purchased is no more? Group clothing should be an incentive to keep a clean slate as an approved group promoting roleplay and setting a good image for the rest of the community, servers gotta pay for itself and not from @Roland's pocket of course, but isn't it doing that already? Bit iffy to me boyo's.

    D7 Mercenaries are Mercenary group ran by Paddy Devlin former British Army. D7 was founded after Paddy realised that army life was no longer for him, he wanted to maximize profits, however doing this changed his mentality. D7 has no allegiance and will work for anyone pays the right price regardless of their Nationality, Religion or Ideology. They have worked in multiple different countries, Iraq, Afghanistan, Takistan, West Africa, and Chernarus. They offer a wide range of services: Assassination, Abduction, Enhanced Interrogation, Sponsored Attacks, and more. The group's objectives and mentality can change varying on the contract they have, and what is happening in-game. Failing to pay the price agreed before signing the contract can have a major impact on the persons who made the contract. We want to get paid, and if you do not pay, you will be hunted.

    I do apologise first for the format I'm typing this. However I am doing this on my phone. The idea that I have is that due to a lot of the silly campfire vs hostile discussion going on, the main block of all this are the people involved in heavy and large groups. What I'm suggesting is that we could make the first step in improving transparency and actually have communication between clan leaders in a dedicated channel in the dayzrp discord. This way it can be monitored by staff, easy to manage and doesn't have to be hosted constantly by an outside force (like if the host suddenly goes afk for donkeys years). The idea is to improve communication between the clans, a less isolated approach and even a compromise between parties if per say: a report might up and leaders can discuss first, exchange ideas for concepts, improve on communication between parties... Break the ice between lots of people. Most importantly try and make rp fun for everyone. The idea isn't fully fleshed out... However I would like to hear ur guys thoughts on the matter? I tried this in a one on 2 with @Ducky and @Stannis before... Why don't we try this in a larger level?

    I wish people would read the replies ... She stated her CHARACTER does not like the other person's CHARACTER. And she wants to know is she's required IN CHARACTER to RP with another persons CHARACTER that her CHARACTER doesn't like. Nothing to do with her disliking the person OOC. The short answer is no, you're not required to if your character doesn't like someone else. But you cannot use //OOC to state this, you have to RP it out. If they show up do a emote like *her face would sour at recognizing Jim Bob* and then walk away. Or *she would whisper to her friend something with a foul face* "I don't like Jim Bob I'm leaving." Etc. Do what you'd do in RL if you dislike a person, tell them. Confront them. Avoid them. Or have a middleman speak to them. But you should not and can not use OOC to state your character doesn't want to interact with another Character. This can be considered BadRP and a misuse of //OOC. As other have said it's used for emergencies or to get important info across like markings, scars, perms, frequencies, etc.

    “Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.” Two years it has been by now... Two years since everyone's life was put upside down in a heartbeat... our lives. It feels like decades have passed, ever since this Infection started to ruin lives. Mother nature finally decided to pull the plug on us. Nations bleed, Governments broke, Armies fell and everyone is suffering. And we are right where it all started, in between the beautiful hills, forests and fields of South Zagoria, Chernarus. Three German Citizens trapped in eastern Europe, just like their grandfathers, just under slightly different circumstances. We've all lost people we held dear.

    Not sure how this thread isn't being used Appreciation time @Watchman - Honestly at this point you know way too much about me that I could ever allow you to leave, okay? But no, for real... You're my best friend and I appreciate the shit out of you. You mean so much to me and you know this. We've been through so much shit together that just made us stronger. Thank you for everything and thank you for existing bestie @Voodoo - I know we don't publicly speak about our relationship often because we like to keep it private, but I honestly just need to give you a massive shoutout for still being with me after 8 years considering the amount of times I nearly killed you by setting the house on fire or punching you in the face at night. Not sure how you're still with my derpy ass, but here we are I guess @Buddy - I fucking miss you, okay? For real, come hang out some time. You were such a big influence on my life at one point and now you're doing you and I miss you. Time zones suck ass too, so the times we do get to talk are usually at like 3am. I honestly miss the old gang. We fucked around so much and google hangouts was always the shit You deserve the happiness you're having with your girl, dude. You really do. I hope it keeps going strong. Remember Im always here when you need a friend. @Franny - My German sis. I remember the first time we met you in game in GenZ and you were so shy and adorable, we just HAD to adopt you. And now here you are! I love talking to you about cats and I love your cat videos! You're a great person Franny. Don't let anyone tell you differently. @Ducky - You know how the story goes... Didn't get along at first, two very opinionated people who would just clash left right and center. But here we are. I'm glad we became friends and I'm glad you're allowing my stupid ass in your group I hope I don't disappoint and I hope you see that I'm not as bad as I seemed, because I sure see that in you now. You're a great guy, even tho danes are weird. But that's okay! Thanks for being a good friend @ToeZies - Somehow we both thought that we hated each other, without anyone actually hating anyone at the end of the day. That's honestly fucking hilarious to me. I've seen what kinda person you are a lot recently and it means so much how you care about your friends. They can always count on you and I am glad I can talk to you to if I need to vent about shit. Thank you for that. You're pre cool, Jack @Peril - Oh hey, My Knee twinnie. Sorta anyways. You're doing great kiddo, hope you know this. I love chatting shit with you and hanging out in game. You're a great guy and I'm glad you're around in staff. I know you're gonna go far! It's good someone can relate about my fucked knee as well, so I can vent even more about that! @Harvard - I miss you. Where are you? You were like a brother to me at one point and you've just sorta stopped hanging about. It's a shame, but I hope you know you can always talk to me if you need to. Nothing's changed, I'm still here for you. Same goes for you @Aisling. Reeeeee you guys are missed okay? @BrianM - You're a good kid and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you and I am glad you're my friend. Thank you for everything. @Imation11 - I'm glad you're around whenever I need a therapy session But for real.. You're a great guy and you're very kind and care about everyone around you before yourself. That's a great deal, and I hope people tell you enough that they appreciate it, because you really deserve that. So incase they haven't, I'll be the one to say it here. @Eddie - Another one that I fucking miss. You're such a wholesome dude and you honestly deserve the world for your kindness. We all miss you, eddie. I hope you're well and you're gonna be coming to hang out some time again.# @Randy - My vent buddy in staff. You've been a lot busier lately since getting red, but I hope nothing's changed. I enjoy talking to you and venting about stupid shit like we always used to. It was kind of our thing @Roman - Somehow the only times we talk are after we've seen each other in game, which is funny But every time we both just compliment each other's RP and it's great, honestly. That's kind of become our trademark now If I'm being honest. I know you're a solid dude and I appreciate that you message me after RP thanking me for it. It goes a long way, not everyone has the effort to do that. @AlanM - We don't talk much anymore but I appreciate the time we had together ingame and ooc. I hope you're doing okay and know that if you ever need me, I'll be here b. Honorable mentions - @Kaiju47 @Fae @Banshee @Inferno453 @Osku @Simon @Derek Steel @Saunders @Realize @Hofer - My staff buddies. I'm glad to be in staff with you guys. You all do a fantastic job and I like the friendships we all have with each other. We're honestly a solid team at the moment

    Yesterday was interesting. Pulled my hair out so many times because of weird situations or miscommunications, but just the RP with everyone was fantastic. @Eddie - It's adorable seeing you hit on @Scarlett's character and wing-womaning for you Eddie's basically River's bestie, so she gotta make sure he's in good hands @Roman - Absolutely love the storyline we have going. We're so good at improving all this and going off of eachother's improv. It's fantastic! @DrMax - I could kill you for the amount of miscommunication last night but I like you too much fearless co leader @Miamomoh & @Hanro - Loved the internal rp when everyone else went to bed. Really felt like our characters bonded a lot last night. It's great to have you two around! @Franny - River's gonna be stepping back from Petersen after yesterday no more competition for ya And thanks to all the other people from yesterday I had a blast as usual @Watchman @Ducky @Brian @Kerkkoh @Ingvalid @Brayces @Dino @Ouromov @Hofer @Harvey @C-J @G_DateLR @JasonBR

    Here for shameless bean farming. Added new item - eye patch (crafted with a rag to a left/right variant) @Misho You find a EyePatch item and you use it together with a rag to chose if you want it on the right or left eye. Will try to make it craft able from scratch for next patch.

    I've got a pretty solid map here to signify owned territories across the map Currently no, there is no 'faction map', and with two servers, it's almost impossible to do. Just wander about and find out IC where people are set up.
