Been havin' more fun on FiveM w/ @edgy Dingle @Daemon @Johnny Navid @ItsJet and some others and met some old friends from DayZRP on there that either got banned or left on their own accords. The RP style on there is different to the entire style of DayZ and it's a nice change after 5 years of playing DayZRP pretty much non stop.
Everytime I've been getting ingame on DayZ in the last 2 weeks, i've just not felt very interested and got bored pretty quickly. I also think the lorewipe started off great and then just started declining. The main people my character had the strongest bonds w/ have stopped playing, so I don't really have much drive to get ingame and do anything.
I'm gonna be dead honest, nothing's really been happening and a lot of us are taking a break because the server seems dead again. The first month after lorewipe was decent, and then it just kinda started getting boring again. Nothing new happening, no new lore groups, no nothing. We tried to make our own RP and own storylines but it doesn't help that there isn't really much going on right now.
Salem was born in Miroslavl, Chernarus - to parents of american & chernarussian heritage.
Her parents owned a traveling circus that dated back 4 generations. Due to the family business, Salem was home-schooled and didn't have much access to a normal childhood and social life.
When the first wave of the infection occured, her family saw a big drop in sales and audience attending the circus. After a few months, more money was going out than coming in and the business went bankrupt. In order to stay on above water, the family had to sell the circus and lay off every worker. Some even becoming homeless. It was never a good paying job in the first place, but when the numbers started dropping, it became a hassle to be able to survive on what money was being made.
At wave two of the infection, Salem and her family had no money left and lost their home. They ended up on the streets, where they spent the next few months.
When the third wave hit, they retreated more to the east of Chernarus and hunkered down in a cabin north of Svetlojarsk. Salem lost her parents to the infection a few months later.
