  1. Boone 'Lawless' Hardy grew up in the desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico in the great United States of America. He grew up with a Pa and Ma that were hard working folk. His Pa worked the fields as a farmer in charge of many acres of wheat, peppers, and even some cotton. He was one of the biggest farmers in the state making a profit once a year when harvest season came around. Hardy's Ma worked in a bar in town and she busted her ass every night to bring home some extra cash for her family. They were a functional family, unlike many families around 'em they had dinner every night together and went to church together when they could and thanked god for the rain and all the time they had together. Hardy won't much of a farmer himself, he pushed the plow or drove the tractor when he had to but that wasn't where his interests lied. His attention was turned to the more fortunate of the New Mexico area. It was ridiculous to him what they'd spend money on. Fancy cars, pools, expensive houses. What he noticed though was when people'd spend so much damn money on their pets, it was mind boggling to him how people would push out a grand or more when one of their pets would need surgery or that they'd buy a pure blood cat or dog. Boone'd be more than happy to have a mutt or just a cat outa the street. So he got a plan together with some of his childhood friends and men he could trust. That's when they started rustling cats. They'd break into and steal high end bred cats and sell them through a representative to an underground market where these kinds of cats and things that were meant to be hush hush happened. He had quite a knack for it too, he started to travel world wide and smuggle them back to the states and sell the animals. He found himself in Russia quite a few times rustling cats and bringing them across to the states to sell them. He found himself in South Zagoria on his way back to the states one time and he just had a string of bad luck and that's when the infection began to spread through out the country.
  2. Dude, let the contractors rest in peace, they'll never be forgotten. o7

  5. *As Marcus sits and old run down house by himself he rubs a rag over his M4, after a little cleaning he sets it aside and begins to tune up his radio and the field radio pack to prepare a broadcast that can be heard throughout South Zagoria* "This is call sign Ryder, I'm a leader of a group of guns for hire that go by The Contractors. Typically we wear armbands that are a darker blue color. Lately I've been receiving word that there are other men wearing a similar color band around their arms impersonating us. We are neutral party for hire by anyone and everyone. Due to our neutrality we do not attack or rob anyone unless we're hired to do so. The men known as "The Liquidators" are tarnishing our band color and I wish to report to other survivors that we are are not robbing or murdering civilians without a hired contract. While I'm on the air I might as well give my sales pitch about ourselves... We're willing to do any job for payment, payment varies from job to job. A few examples of jobs we can do are scavenging runs, search and rescue, securing a safe house or a town, securing a target alive or dead. Confidentiality is our priority, finding myself or a contractor in person is the best possible way to set up a secure contract, or discussing it over a secure frequency. One thing to always remember is that we're paid, we're not permanent. Call sign, Ryder, over and out. *Marcus turns off the field radio and takes out the battery and looks out the window as the sun begins to rise outside*
  6. Thanks to @FruitPunchG we got a much needed makeover!
  7. Thanks for the support, more artwork and some more touch ups will be coming soon!
  8. Had some RP with a few of you earlier due to a certain neck being bitten. Interesting needless to say, hope to run into y'all again sometime. RP was good, if theres anything that we did you'd like to address feel free to PM me and we can discuss it further!
  9. At a very young age Charles was orphaned when a drunk driver drove his family off the road into a river, while he was strapped into the back seat the front of the car a good Samaritan stopped while the car was slowly sinking into the river broke the window and rescued the young Charles. His father who was driving died due to faulty air bag deployment, his mother wasn't unable to unstrap herself and drowned. Through his childhood he was bounced around through various orphanages and foster homes. After turning 18 due to federal funding and scholarships he earned since he worked very hard in school he pursued learning about Nuclear Bio-Hazardous Chemicals, and how to clean up and dispose of messes the world made. He started to travel to Russia with an American team helping clean up some small waste leaks. Eventually the team was hired to travel to South Zagoria and work on at some Nuclear Plants in the northern part of the country. Not long after that, the world died.

    A song of whitenames and roleplay.

    I agree, I think the standard for roleplay has definitely been lowered with new comers. Having been in the community for quite a while, back in 2015 as a new comer the bar was set a lot higher I think. Like I did my best to be a good roleplayer and like @Jasper said. I fucking studied the lore and rules for at least a day before I put my application in. A rework is needed, but instead of just a rework. I haven't read all of the comments, but perhaps a system that can "train" new comers of what's to be expected as a minimal at least, then maybe give examples of different type of characters they can play and how to do it minimally well. I know we have guides on the forums and what not, but perhaps making these guides more intertwined with the application and make whitelist applicants give examples (more than one) of characters and how to play them after reading these types of guides.

    Group cap

    Don't see the point to cap it off. Like what advantages does it offer? I see none.
  12. (Somethings are omitted from the back story that you can learn in character) Born in Casper Wyoming to a single alcoholic mother. Marcus didn't have much drive for the academics in his younger years, getting through the grades as best as any other student his age. Though he did join Scouts. It was an opportunity for him to get out of the house and into the outdoors. He fell in love with it. Being in the outdoors, no one around, no one to tell you what to do, well except for the other scouts and adults but he usually ignored them when he could. After high school and aging out of Scouts, he started to take some night classes at a local community college. He was able to get a job during the day and move into a small flat and get away from his mother, leaving her to go about her business in peace. Marcus eventually dropped out of school after two semesters, it wasn't because he didn't do well academically. He simply wanted to travel with the money he had saved and gained from a recent inheritance. He was set on travelling across Europe and through some of the middle east. After doing some research he was much more interested in setting out on a hike through some of the safer countries there. Over the course of a few months he hiked and camped, eventually returning to the states. When he returned to Wyoming he decided to continue his outdoors lifestyle and bought a cabin in the wilderness where he could have easy access to the outdoors anytime he wanted. He started to take up hunting as a normal hobby as something to do when he wasn't working at his new job as a bartender. Working most weekend nights picking up tips and chicks when he could and hunting during the week and selling the pelts he got online, Marcus was making decent pay. His interest in the middle east was still in mind. He kept saving up his money and took up bird hunting, collecting feathers and talons that he got from hunting them. After saving up enough cash and going to a few more night classes at a local college to learn some Arabic he found an underground hunting party that travels out to the middle east to do some sketchier hunting. Hunting rare birds and mammals for rare trophies and furs to sell. Well armed and with a small hunting party they flew out to begin their hunting. The band was rough and tough living off the land and MREs that they brought with them, after a few weeks of being there they heard radio frequencies about an outbreak happening in a country near by in South Zagoria. News reports started coming that the infection was spreading rapidly to other countries as well. It wasn't long before the hunting party went into a small village to hunker down and encamp and make a safe place for themselves they scared off the locals with their gunshots. The hunting party understood it was a dog eat dog world now, trying to work with civilians in a different country just wouldn't work out. Some of the hunters were resistant to some of the things they did, but they were quickly whipped into shape when threatened with being thrown out, or just shot on the spot. The group made a good camp for themselves establishing a good safe house for themselves, when they had to go out eventually to neighboring villages. They found another encampment of locals, with weapons. Due to Marcus' Arabic classes he was able to talk to them a little, it was obvious they were hostile but they didn't try and attack the large group of Americans. Marcus did his best to negotiate supplies for food and rations, the group wouldn't have any of it and said that they needed workers to help build up their encampment. Marcus wasn't about to employ himself and his men to help build a camp, so he gathered up his men and went out on a mission to appease these locals. Marcus and the hunting party came back a few days later with a few captured men and women tied up. The local leader of the encamped men came down and gave a crooked smile to Marcus revealing yellow teeth, he gave a signal to some of his men and they brought down plenty of rations to compensate the hunters. The hunters found a new way to make a profit and decided to go all in, ruthlessly. They made a good life for themselves. Resources eventually did begin to dry up after quite a few months of easy living, this made tensions rise between the hunters and the locals, eventually a small skirmish broke out between the two groups. When the only two hunters Marcus was close with died, he left in the night taking enough rations and ammo for himself, he headed east bringing him to South Zagoria.
  13. Thanks @Wong If you bump into us in game and/or have any feedback feel free to PM me!
  14. Rule 4.6 Hostages do not comply with your demands after repeated requests or try to escape. Hostages do not value their life, for example they repeatedly talk back or insult you despite being told to stop. One warning does not give you the excuse to shoot someone when they step out of line ONCE. Yuri tried to further roleplay by disagreeing, the roleplay could have been furthered with beatings or other intimidation tactics. He had value for his life through out and simply voiced his characters opinion to further roleplay, which didn't happen. Also weren't you AFK throughout the entire situation? Side note as this was looked over in the other report; (@Bounty @MotorCycleHelmetGuy) https://plays.tv/video/5c7f3e5536f3bbd4e9/goggles-prison-break In this video no one survived that saw that I killed Kaya as Goggles. As well there were four hostiles in the building, anyone of them could have killed Kaya. https://plays.tv/video/5c848dc5f32acb79f2/full-hostage-situation (at 6:20) Goggles is accused of killing Kaya. "That's a lie" Which is straight Meta-Gaming. I didn't execute anyone, she was gunned down. How would anyone know that it was me EXACTLY. There were four hostiles in the police station (prison break). All hostiles die, and the green dragon survivors are left to figure out who died. There is no way for them to deduce that Goggles is the one that "executed" Kaya, a little suspicious to me. I would also like to request who ever this motor cycle helmet guy is to post their POV, because it seems rather obvious he's with them as him and a woman are set aside. (2:50) "You two are nice"

    Let me drop this "yeet" on these "kids" https://plays.tv/video/5c7f3e5536f3bbd4e9/goggles-prison-break In this video no one survived that saw that I killed Kaya as Goggles. As well there were four hostiles in the building, anyone of them could have killed Kaya. https://plays.tv/video/5c848dc5f32acb79f2/full-hostage-situation (at 6:20) Goggles is accused of killing Kaya.

  16. As staff does not take word v. word. I would like to request you post any evidence that Yuri was part of any of these altercations you claim he was in. Yuri lives in a different time zone, and wasn't active in any of the firefight or raids on the Freemans' base. Sorry to burst your bubble "boii". Sleep well.
  17. Being aware of the members of The Freemen are and being aware of the members that are involved in hostile actions are two different things. 4.6 If you successfully capture a player through a hostile action and then take him into your custody, he is now considered your hostage. You must do everything in your power to keep your hostages alive and in a relatively good health. That includes protecting them from external threats like zombies and leaving them with a realistic chance of survival when they are released. A character that is taken hostage may be executed once for a hostile incident that happened in the past where the hostage was PERSONALLY responsible for, or PARTICIPATED in a death of your ally.... Guilty by association is not part of the rules. Yuri was not involved in the situation in the police station, nor has he been involved in any firefight with The Freemen up until today.
  18. Goggles was not a part of the Freemen when he killed Kaya, Goggles is not a member of the Freemen. Yuri was not present in the police station when Kaya was even killed, if you were present I believe I even killed you too (brown leather hat I believe?) therefor not having memory of her death from that specific event. "In theory" You killed him after demands were made to him and he refused, this is just scrambling to try and find a way to wiggle out of an invalid execution. If you had role played out executing him as a member of the Freemen for his fellows killing Kaya that would have been fine. The only reason you know the character "Yuri Petrov" is a Freemen is because we're on the forums and you see it next to his name. In the church we're asked to gather information on the very group his character is a member of, if you knew this in character you would have tortured him and gotten information you wanted, but you didn't. This execution had nothing to do with the death of Kaya. Yuri was killed in the middle of a hostage roleplay situation. You had no clue Yuri was a member of the Freemen. If you should have executed anyone for the death of Kaya it should have been Goggles, not Yuri. I'm sorry you've been having IRL issues. I hope everythings works out. I as well will not be posting anymore on this report thread unless instructed to. Edit: I also have a video of Kaya's death, anyone there that would have witnessed it died, the Freemen were never mentioned through out the situation either. Any information that the Freemen killed Kaya is metagaming.

    POV: https://plays.tv/video/5c848dc5f32acb79f2/full-hostage-situation I'll leave it up to @Kirby-KP to mention the timestamps he deem significant. Written POV. I was going into Stary with some other survivors, where we bump into a trader and chat for a minute. Then a man with a green armband comes up and tells us to put one hand up and run to the church. We all do this, we bump into a man in his car, he's taken too. Once we get into the church a few of us ask why they're doing this and (4:38) where they say it's just cuz they want our shit "why else?" the rp continues until we're eventually let go (after Im beaten to uncon twice).
  21. I was taken with @Rapid Steve and a few other survivors by the Green Dragons. As RP continued and began to wind down and we were going to be let go, the leader of the group started to make his demands for us, to gather information and gear for them. Yuri (@Rapid Steve) refused the demands then was immediately shot without hesitation or discussion, sending him to the coast and ruining an entire RP session.
  22. https://plays.tv/video/5c7ee1d88ab1e43e23/scarring @Zanaan There yah go mate
  23. @Zanaan I'm home now, I'll see if I can gather the video mate
