    @Brayces fun times. I remember that. I'll never forget how tense it was the whole way through. Wasn't that the time we were walked (and forcefully run) all the way to Cherno?

    DayZRP rule changes - March 2018

    So, we can't create roleplay from an initiation? You're limiting the field of play here by not allowing an initiation to open up roleplay to display characters as watchful, vigilant, or protective. Now everyone has to be carefree and cuddle up to everyone they perform any hostile RP. Why? Why is this in place? Is it to limit rulebreakers? Are we taking the stick from every kid in the neighborhood because one kid hit another with it? It's not about whether you're catering to everyone or just not making everyone happy. You're taking away huge roleplaying opportunities.

    DayZRP rule changes - March 2018

    6.2 You may not use character or group story as a universal reason to initiate hostilities with other players. For example, role playing a bandit, murderer or crazy person does not grant you explicit rights to attack other players by itself, there must be other circumstances, previous history between the players or role play that leads to a situation where being hostile is warranted. So... if I want I'm not allowed to seek someone out and rustle their feathers, EVEN given I would strive to provide good hostile roleplay? I have to sit there and have a campfire chat with everyone I come across if I want to break the ice over gunpoint? I have to know someone personally to initiate on them? Am I missing part of the concept where this isn't as strict as it sounds?

    Ads on the website

    Sorry if that sounded like a jab at you. Didn’t mean it that way. I’m not saying you have to at all. You’re probably a better person than me for keeping them on, tbh. I just don’t see a reason to do this when there are plenty of people who have donated in the past and kept this place afloat, even if only minimally. I was against this in the first place and I’m still against it.

    Ads on the website

    Okay. Cool. I was wondering about the same thing but didn't look into it until today. Thank god we aren't forced to allow aids, I mean, ads. (Not a fan of the ads at all) Honestly, though, I can't stand the additional loading time ads add. (lol "add ads") They make the site very undesirable to visit. Not to mention stuff like what @th3inory had happen to him. I mean, what are the typical estimated earnings per day from the ads anyways? Have they even been generating a substantial amount of revenue? Don't you have to click on them to even generate revenue in the first place? So what if I have them on and just don't click them. I couldn't imagine them generating anything by simply just being THERE. (Mind you I don't have a fucking clue how ads work. I'm only speculating here. Feel free to educate me.) I leave ads disabled because I've supported the site in other ways, well exceeding: ONE DOLLA

    [Game] Catch someone looking at their own profile!

    I'd be watching my own profile if it was as lit as this one
  14. Born to an Air Force Pilot in Wichita, Kansas, Harvey showed great promise both academically and athletically. A true prodigy of his father during his early years. He first grew a love for baseball when he played his first game of catch with his dad. He grew up with loving and caring parents. His father, especially, wanted the best for young Harvey. They gave him all the tools he'd need to make it in the world. Discipline, respect, and a wealth of formal and informal knowledge to serve as his base for success after he left their home when high school was over. He played baseball from the time he was in Youth Leagues up until Sophomore year at Wichita State University. He moved out of his parents' home and began living in campus housing. It was during this year that he met the love of his life, Sarah Moore. She was a talented, beautiful girl, with a bad side that all the guys loved. She had long hair, a long jacket, and loved long nights. She introduced him to the party scene. One night, she seduced him and, during the act, pulled out a joint of marijuana. She laughed as she took the first hit and then curled back over him. "C'mon, babe, try it. It's only once," she told him. Of course it is. Once is all you need. He would enjoy his weekend, but on Monday, things took an unexpected turn when a random drug screening was called for the team. He knew he'd be done for, but what could he do? If he refused the test, he'd be kicked from the team. If he took the test and popped positive, he'd be kicked from the team. He was between a rock and a hard place. He decided it'd be best if he took the test and then quit the team before results returned. That way his results would be announced and his father would never know, sparing him the grief of a disgusted father. He managed to come up with some bullshit reason about why he'd quit the team. Something about wanting to focus on studies and grades. Harvey continued to date Sarah for a while. He did, however, stop going to school. Once his results came back, by unanimous decision, he was expelled from the school by the board of directors. He discontinued smoking, however, which made thing turbulent, to say the least, with Sarah. She started dating other guys behind his back since she could no longer gain the spotlight from being around him. She always made him feel like it was his fault by undermining him with loop-holed arguments and gaslighting. Eventually he couldn't bear it anymore. He started working low end-jobs to pay the rent and get himself somewhere. Being somewhat financially adept, he saved enough money to get to Europe, where he believed he could get away from everything. He didn't want to be anywhere near his ashamed parents, abusive girlfriend, and disappointed friends. He managed to get on board with a group of fishermen, through his connections with some of his father's military friends, in Naples, Italy. He became a hardened deckhand, by his thirties, shifting from ship to ship to keep a steady income. It was hard, gritty, work that pushed him to his limit every day. It was a very demanding job and there was never any room for slack. This developed him into the man he is today. When the outbreak finally hit Italy, he didn't take any chances on land. Things were already bad. He and his crew took a small group of passengers who weren't infected to sea to get as far away from the area as possible. They'd heard of a small safe haven guarded by a Joint Task Force in Incirlik, Turkey. There, some decided to stick around, and a few others, including Harvey, left to get even farther away. Feeling that keeping the only thing that would keep them alive was cooperation and moving on the road together, they established rules. These rules would be followed to the 't' or anyone caught breaking them would be exiled from the group or killed on the spot. No mutinous actions were tolerated and most people were able to get along this way. The group simply claimed what was theirs and took what they wanted to use for themselves. They managed to make it all the way to Chernarus, picking up new survivors along the way, coming across several other groups and absorbing some of their members. Once there, they fed off the land and its inhabitants, again claiming whatever they needed to survive.

    Upcoming community changes - February 2018

    Incorrect. "To communicate, all radios in your group must be set to the same channel and Privacy Code." -Direct quote from an two-way radio operating manual. It's not like you can just click through and find someone's channel while they're talking. It would be 100% realistic to use a private frequency. The only thing that makes sense is, like Rolle said, to make it so that any taunting and revealing conversations would have to be kept to PMs so that a combination of metagaming and salt-provocation can no longer occur via these "Private" forum posts.

    For the use of Capitol/capital, were you referring to Moscow as a whole, or just the Capitol building? (The lore is great. I'm just giving a thought because I want to make things hard for you.) Also, gimme New Moscow already!

    I agree. I did ask him about my barrel due to his look but he denied it and I found the original two responsible for it later on. He wasn't involved in my situation although I did see him in the area during the situation in the OP.

    Here is the rest of my video footage, as relevant to my prior statements regarding the second encounter. Mind the time lapse of about 4 to 5 hours between this incident and the incident prior due to logging off and running errands IRL. https://plays.tv/s/Laza74qgVZmi

    It's almost done uploading. I pulled it from Plays today because I didn't feel it was fully relevant to the original reported situation and now see that it could be of relevance. I didn't edit the footage in any way, but shortened it to a few minutes prior to the incident in question and a few minutes after, for the sake of the fact that I was logged in for nearly 2 hours of full footage, so it's condensed to about 20 minutes here for ease and relevance.

    Appreciate the input back from both parties. Being neither a Native American nor a Somalian bothers me in any way. It's the manner of roleplay. Your in-character harassment over a petty barrel isn't of concern until it becomes as confusing as it did. I was simply attempting to warm and dry my character and wanted to do so with the barrel, seeing how he's a hobo, thinking it'd be a novel prop for my camp. When you came about attempting to dismantle the fire by "vandalizing" the barrel that was, at that point, already vandalized with holes, it made no sense. To take it further, I made use of the tree logs, and the sticks, being that I was looking for anything and everything I could burn to keep it around as long as possible once I had it going. I had a reason to keep it going once people were around, offering them the warmth and companionship of the fire. When you took the barrel the first time, it was frustrating, but I let it go. When I got the barrel the second time, after managing to grab your hint, I had made a fire, composed of the exact same elements, sticks, rags, and logs, just to the side of my tent. No one had a problem with it. I moved it back to the barrel; you had a problem with it, purposely grabbing the sticks and logs from the barrel so you could passively grab it and move it away, even pulling out a bow, cuing that you knew you were under my skin and ready to fight. I pulled my gun and asked for you to stop, and your 'brother' pulled his bow as well, as if you'd been looking for a fight the whole time. Once we talked over the barrel and sorted out the 'coin' and 'claim' of the barrel, you left it alone. Again, I made a fire, same components; sticks, rags, and logs, right next to the barrel, and you had no issue with it. The same reason you gave for taking my barrel, you contradicted on multiple occasions. You also claimed the barrel was man-made, when I brought up this contradiction, and stated it was a sacrilege to burn the once living thing in a man-made. So clearly you are against man-made items and luxuries, yet your character backstories offer up that you were riding in planes on flights for a conference for Native Americans to meet in a country that had no bearing on your culture or ethnicity? If a Somalian, American, Italian, Irish, or whatever ethnic or cultural background has a good and consistent story to back up their roleplay, then why not let them? I don't care at all if you play a Native American, chant war cries, or pray to tree-gods. But for the love of roleplay be consistent. None of what you show is consistent or warranted. You only seem to do what you're doing to get a rise. THIS is why, if this report is closed, I'll continue the report on my own, as well as bringing in more video evidence from the second situation to back up my claims.

    I can confirm I was around during this occurrence and made an in-character plight of the ordeal. My PoV is as follows: I've been playing as the hobo, homeless character, Jerry Asher for a few weeks now. I got word of a populated town near GM and sought it out with another hobo friend of mine who wasn't involved in this instance, nor was he logged in at the time this happened. Once there (yesterday), we logged in hopes that a greater population would be around. I logged on today and it was as I'd hoped. Lots of people to talk to, friendly people running around, and security keeping things in check with regular patrols around the town. I decided to set up my hobo camp and scrounge around for the good coin to trade and managed to find a off-road wheel and an empty blue barrel. I quickly claimed them as my own and brought them back to my camp. I poked some holes in the barrel, cut down some trees, made a fire in the barrel and proceeded to RP with people as they came up to me. I did, however, end up having to leave momentarily and go to the nearby pond for a quick dip to cool off, losing connection and having to re-log. Once I came back to my small camp I found two old men calling each other their tree-brother or something, brutally assaulting my barrel with pumpkin and meat on sticks, complaining about how I'd cut down the trees. They kept babbling about how nature is living and how I shouldn't have cut down trees to make my fire (Which is weird because they had meat on sticks and leather made from the skin of dead animals. So much for loving living things). Then they started picking up the would-be-IRL red-hot barrel, WHILE IT WAS ON FIRE, and proceeded to run around screaming "I'm on fire! I'm on fire brother!" "It's a trial by fire! Help me it burns!" etc, to which I made no real complaint other than, I believe, mentioning how stupid it was that they did it and saying how the real ones not respecting nature were those who couldn't respect the power of fire. I was rather shocked by the crudeness of the roleplay. I went to report the instance to the nearest patrol, and found no one by the fire that had been gathered around earlier, so I came back to check on the two men and speak to them, at which point they'd already run off with my barrel. (Presumably just wanting the barrel in the first place, which is why I'm guessing they were testing if they could pick up the burning mess anyways.) I then began my search for the two men, not knowing their names, and only knowing them by the leather clothing they were wearing (Again, weird that someone playing off a nature-lover would be wearing the skin of an animal). The patrols I did end up finding, who seemed to know OF the men, weren't of much help as they seemed to accept the men without incident, not really believing what I had said. A lot of people seemed to be calling each other "brother" and I began to wonder if this 'thing' has caught on in the area. I never did end up finding the barrel, but did find both men, who denied they'd done anything and claimed I was mistaken. 19:50:02 | Chat("Alexa Valentine"(id= )): //ok 19:50:07 | Chat("Alexa Valentine"(id= )): //I see it 19:50:07 | Chat("Jerry Asher"(id= )): //Nothing here. Some guy ran off 19:50:14 | Chat("Alexa Valentine"(id= )): //let me relog 19:58:15 | Chat("Jiri Lanik"(id=)): Hi ,there. Just stored some stuff. 19:58:21 | Chat("Jiri Lanik"(id=)): had some useful things 19:58:32 | Chat("Jiri Lanik"(id=)): Jiri. Hi. Nah I'm good. 19:58:35 | Chat("Peter Zolsevich"(id= )): I'm lookin' for something. 19:58:46 | Chat("Jiri Lanik"(id=)): Thanks, that is very kind. 19:58:58 | Chat("Peter Zolsevich"(id= )): It's a bit of a rarity. I'm looking for a smersh backpack for my vest. 19:59:30 | Chat("Peter Zolsevich"(id= )): Hm, well, if you happen to find one, come seek me out, yeah? ^These are two of the interactions I had that were done in part text, part voice, due to the volume of the conversations in the vicinity. I continued to ask around about the barrel, even inquiring to one person who said it was her barrel, so I could apologize for it becoming lost in the first place due to me using it in the open. I did hear a little bit of the chanting and singing, but ignored it due to my search for the originally described trolly barrel-thieves. I just sat in my tent after a while, frustrated and confused about what had just transpired, trying to cool my head. I have video of the instance, and will post it shortly. I just need to render and post it to my Plays channel.
