  1. Hello everyone! I joined back in 2016 and had such a fun time with all of you! Real life caught up with me and I had to take a step back from DayZ, but now I'm eager to jump back in. I've spent the better part of today re-reading the changes and updated lore! I can't wait to see you all in game! -JayJr
  2. Jay learned from the beginning that life wasn't easy. Growing up in the heart of Detroit, he quickly became accustom to the harsh realities of life. If were not for his brother Eric looking out for him, Jay would've easily been consumed by the city. Jay was the type of kid who always had a grin on his face. It wasn't long until he had become a familiar presence on the streets. Jay was an adventurer, though growing up in the motorcity meant very little opportunities. His father used to take Jay and his brother up north camping and showing them practical ways of living off the land, Jay always thought it was a waste of time living in a city and all. But when his father wasn't teaching them how to tie knots or start fires, he was drinking himself into oblivion. So Jay couldn't complain. Jay hated school, and would slack off any chance he could. It wasn't until his brother caught him skipping school hanging out with a rough crowd that Jay began to change. Jay couldn't care less about disappointing anyone, aside from Eric. That was one thing that ate away at him. Once Jay graduated high school, he had moved on to college. He was the first in his family to go to college, so that was something he was very proud of. He took coursed for Electrical Engineering and Communications. It was a throwaway course for Jay, but after attending a few classes, he realized he had a knack for understanding radio equipment. Shortly before graduating with a bachlors degree in Electrical Engineering, Jay received an email from a previous classmate of his. The email was a job opportunity. It was a outsourced, contracting job in Chernarus. Jay of course had never heard of the place, but put that in the back of his mind as he stared at the Salary. The job was only for 6 months - March to September and was in search of Engineers willing to travel to the country and teach the locals how to fix and maintain communication towers throughout the country. To Jay it sounded like easy money. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jay thought hard about his choice to either go back to school or take the Job offer. After discussing it with his family, his brother told him to bring him back a souviner. That was all the encouragement Jay needed to go. He had arrived in country on March 14th 2017, and met with his work contact shortly after. Jay spent the first month becoming acquainted with the new surroundings. The country was odd, and felt stuck out of time in his eyes. Once he had his bearings his work began. He traveled across most of South Zagoria with his liaison Alexei Sokolov. A rather large man who spoke in broken English and had a jovial laugh. On July 7th, Jay could hear strange rumbling on the horizon as he worked up on one of the towers. Shortly after the small radio playing polka music shifted to a news report. Upon hearing the details, Alexei called Jay down and informed him the situation. Jay dismissed the workers, and left the tower with Alexei. Alexei took Jay to stay with him and his family in Tisy. They had agreed to remain hunkered down until the fighting stopped. Jay stayed in a guest house behind Alexei's while the situation cooled down. However it never cooled down. Days past and the situation was quickly becoming worse. Alexei told Jay about NATO's involvement and that things were starting to deteriorate. Jay attempted to contact his family back home, however external communication was non-existent. After a month of hearing nothing but silence on the radio, Jay wanted to leave that farmhouse and attempt to find away back home. Alexei advised against it but retrieved an old pistol he had kept in a cupboard, handing it to Jay and wishing him well. Jay never saw Alexei again after that. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jay traveled for months, trying to reach the coast. His first encounter with the infected was in the city of Novaya, he narrowly escaped with his life, and had expended all of his bullets in a panic. Over the months, Jay learned and adapted as best he could, scrounging what little he could to survive. A month ago, Jay reached the southern docks in Cherno only to find it overrun. It was then he realized he may never get home again.

    Forcing New Players to Read Rules before they apply

    I think anyone who actually gives a crap about the community would fully read and understand the rules. I often find myself going back and re-reading the rules to make sure I understand what they mean. Not only that, other more "veteran" players have been very kind and helpful when I ask 'noobish' questions regarding rules or situations. I know that mistakes will happen in and out of game, we're human after all. But if you blatantly and repetitively break the rules of the community you should face the consequences. It's not the community's responsibility to force reading the rules down new members throats. It's up to the new members to understand that, "You must follow and understand these or leave".

    Bring back Q and A

    Sounds great! To have a place to speak directly to staff would be helpful to a lot of new members like myself.

    Your luckiest moment on RP?

    My luckiest moment has to be when I climbed 4 stories in an apartment, walked to the balcony to check if there were any people nearby. Accidentally walked forward. I screamed all the way to the bottom. Landed. Stood up and walked away. Didn't even mess up my boots.

    Ho ho ho!

    Walking through the woods near the Airfield Jay hears his radio crackle to life. Pushing the PTT Jay cleared his throat. "Aye Saint Nick, Jay here. Lemme get a pack of smokes, a burger and fries." Jay pauses for a moment. "OH! YEAH! And a ---" The radio crackles violently with the screams of the dead, before going silent.
  9. While I agree it would make users think twice before interacting in hostilities, as well as how they act as a hostage. I think it should wholly be up to the user. For someone like myself (personally) who had to dedicate some time to crafting a background/character, I'd be somewhat annoyed that a hostile interaction gone-wrong had erased my character. I understand that people can/will just copy and paste a new character but all the experiences my character had up until that point would still be out of the window. I do like @Katzevon's idea regarding an injured rest period. You get into a skirmish/captured and tortured, it should take some time to recover (especially if you have a group where you can engage in internal RP).
  10. How about "The Un-Infected", I know it seems like a pretty general term for everyone. But you say you live among the dead so I thought it would be a clever idea. Or Perhaps "The Spectres" since you like to live in the shadows.

    DayZRP Groups

    It seems like a good idea, but at the same time I agree with the other's who think that salt would "over-season" the voting system. A group of randoms have a poor encounter with a larger group, and downvote based on emotion.
  14. Just had a new one happen to me, I was in a city with a lot of Zombies around. I caught one's attention and decided to dispatch him with my rifle. I clicked once and lag proceeded to unload the entire magazine into this one zombie. I turned around and the horde was in full pursuit.
  15. (I really hope I don't get flayed alive for making a thread) Although I am unable to currently purchase the game at the moment, I am somewhat fascinated by it and will probably be purchasing it in the very near future. My question is in regards to the backgrounds of races/types of people in our current Lore/LiF world. For example, are there Vikings? Can there be Vikings? Pirates? Tribal people? Magic? Can you make up your own race (E.g. Bretons, Nords)? Are we all just men and women from the middle ages as a whole? Is this similar to Elder Scrolls, where people come from vastly different areas? (not to the extent of lizard people, I realize we should try to conform to the character models) For a comparison, in DayZ we all come from the "real" world. So anything we have currently in real life (Doctor, Lawyer, Farmer, Soldier, Black, White, Asian, Latino) could potentially be on Chernarus to a certain extent. However, with a fictional fantasy land, it seems difficult to determine what would actually fit or not. I just don't wish to be that guy, who creates a Pirate. Then have someone OOC "//Pirates don't exist in this world..." Or a Viking and be returned with OOC "//Vikings are a real world historical group of warriors, we don't have those in LiF.." Or 'I am from a race of people know as the "Lederhosen" from the faraway land of Eamoreron!' OOC "//No you are not..." After reading the Lore, I understand that it is quite heavily a work-in-progress so maybe I am just too ahead of myself. Perhaps there is a Loremaster out there shouting "GIVE US TIME DAMMIT!" This is all simply to help me (and perhaps others?) better understand the current details of the land. I'm all for whatever the Loremasters say, I'm just trying to think up ideas for a character on the server at the moment and apart from Peasant Man, I don't know what else would be deemed appropriate to the lore and to the game in general. Please forgive me if this thread has been posted incorrectly, or if there is already a guide/lore somewhere showing me what an ignorant person I am. Or if it's as simple as "KNIGHTS NERD! NOW GTFO!" Thank you so much for taking the time to read my query, and I hope to meet you all soon in game!
