Stephen was born and raised in a lower class family in Manchester. He was nothing special and lived a mundane and relatively mediocre life, the only unique thing about Stephen was his passion for archery.
From a young age ste would play with his little toy bow and arrow and as he grew so did his interest in bows and hunting. Once is his teens Ste started entering competitions at first just based around archery but as his skill progressed he started moving onto hunting, the bigger and stronger the animal the better.
One day he entered a hunting competition the prize for the biggest trophy 10 thousand pounds.... the location Chernarus, little did he know he would soon turn from hunter to prey.
The day began as expected, Stephen turned up the sign in for competition and began his preparations for the hunt, a lot of people has turned and and most both older and more seasoned than Ste but it didn't deter him. 10:00am rolled and round and it was time to start the hunt, Ste raced off into the forests to find a good position to lay in wait for prey hours passed and he saw nothing until he noticed some rustling near by.... Stephen sneaked over and peered through the bushes and saw a hunter leaning over a giant stag, a prize kill but then Stephen noticed something was quite right he hunter was covered in blood, far more than from skinning and animal and besides why would he skin the kill before returning it for judging? Stephen crept closer when suddenly he stepped on a branch by his foot and a audible crunch was released the hunter span round and fix his gaze on Stephen, eyes blood red and his face smeared with the entrails of the stag and Ste instantly knew he was in serious trouble.... He sprinted away but the hunter gave chase like a man possessed he ran for what felt like miles until he stumbled into a dip in the ground and fell head over heels and within a instant the hunter was on him, Stephen struggled and fought but the man was too strong he thought it was all over but with one mighty kick Stephen hoofed the man off and quickly grabbed his crossbow and with one single snap of the string the man was dead but that was just the begging of Stephens problems....
John Smith POV:
The group noticed a large group heading down the road from Kabinino as i my role is over-watch in the group I immediately branched off from the group to a vantage point in case anything happened. A while passed and the other group headed away from us i took position up on a near by hill and watched. Nothing happened for a while so I went AFK for a bathroom break and when i came back one of the members from the group was stood over me. I RP'd i was taking a nap and we talked for a while the quality of RP from this member was very good although i didn't catch his name however the rest of the group full sprinted past me 0 interaction what so ever. After the RP with the one member was over I sat in my position and unmuted comms to hear my group backing away from the others saying "Keep running they can't shoots us they haven't dropped an initiation" Next thing i hear is the group in question open fire and kill/injure most of the group. As i am aware no initiation was dropped but i was further away that the rest of the group. I did not return fire on the group I as I felt i was outnumbered and my position was known it would of been NVFL.

*John Pushes the PTT*
" Look Ryan I've heard a lot of mixed stories about your group" * Johns Sighs* "But you're one of the few men I respected before I left this shit hole the first time around" *John looks down at the coyote symbol embroidered into his armband, reminding him of everything it once stood for*
" Regardless of what you think I know you're a good man deep down, you lead a camp and put your life on the line for those who could not protect themselves, My brother *John pauses a moment, a lump in his throat*
Well....he did a lot of things that gave you every right to hunt us down to last man but instead you let us back into the camp, offered food and shelter... I guess what I'm trying to say here is I hope the morals of the man I once knew are the same as what drive the World without borders, For my sake and everyone else"
*John releases the PTT and lets out a Deep sigh, thinking of his brother and what would of come if he had just been the one to put a bullet in him first*
*John here the voice of ryan come over the radio and slowly lurches forward to grab his radio, wincing in pain at the slight stretch*
"Protecting the weak and innocent hugh" *John scoffs* "Please explain to me then why you willfully let the pestilence militia gun down a group of innocent men last night and laughed from the side of the road, knowing that it was about happen!" *John winces down again*
" You was once a good man Ryan, what happened to you?"
*John releases the PTT button and slowly set his radio back down* "Why did I come back here?" *John slides back into his chair and stairs blankly at the wall, a mournful look on his face*
So I recently came back to Dayzrp after taking a few months break to go play other games and spend time with friends and in that time the playerbase seems to have vanished. I don't know if something happened or i'm checking at the wrong times but the server nearly always seems dead.
A couple months ago there was more Eu servers and you pretty much had to fight for a slot at any given time of day, now the most I've seen on at a time is 37 players....
As Goryan said we're essentially doing this already except we gain execution rights so you need to defiantly identify your target first rather than straight KOS for armband colour. from what I gather you're describing some kind of RP / TDM / Dayz. There are server which are RP encouraged but don't have rules as such which have groups etc but are still pretty much normal servers with large clans and a dash of RP.
If i'm understanding you correctly then you're describing pretty much what we have here but with pre-determined groups and the ability to KOS based on arm band colour. Sorry but this doesn't sound very appealing.
In this instance although people where at the camp they weren't on top of my body. People seem to be missing the point here, This instance isn't the focus of the thread it's the mentality of people just tunnel visioning towards a dead body to loot it disregarding nearby events or taking part in any RP.
It's also the second/ third floor building desync related heart attacks lol
This thread is also talking about people who will run into active firefights/Rp situations with no valid reason to just try scavenge from corpses.
I get that people would scavenge a body for supplies however in situations like this in the middle of a populated camp in which my character has made a lot of relations as well as being in the company of other group members running up a body and looting it as strider just said is just bad RP. In a real situation it would take a lot more time than just double clicking an inventory slot and it would be clear who is looting the body.
In reply to the "it's just gear comment" i couldn't agree more. I was almost permanently removed for having the mentality of emphasising the importance of my loot and have since change my mindset just shrug the loot off as immaterial. The thing that annoys me (and the reason for this thread) is the bad RP involved vulturing items of a corpse with little to no RP around the events of the death.
