This is a pretty good idea, at least in my eyes. From what I know, there're very few people in this community that are good at creating objectives for themselves within the RP environment. Most people (including myself sometimes) simply join the server to run around and loot. People don't join the server with the mindset that they're gonna accomplish something with their character. They just hope to run into people and maybe have a chat and sometimes engage in some mindless hostilities. With your idea, people could look at the map and see that Group A has taken over Kabanino. Now they have an IC reason to go to Kabanino; to check out the situation, to find survivors, to take the town back... etc. Or they could hop on the server and instead of saying "oh, I'm low on ammo, lets go loot NWAF" they could say "lets go to the trade outpost to see if they have any ammunition." It would allow for more chances to create decent RP. All in all, what I'm basically saying is that its much easier for someone to RP if you give them an objective instead of expecting them to create one for themselves. It'd cut down on the whole "I'm bored, lets go rob someone" scenario.
Another point I'd like to mention. If you have a constantly updated map on the website that shows hot spots and points of interest; #1. Loremasters (or whoever updates the map) could easily add in points of interest on the map allowing them to guide the players to different locations instead of having them all bunched up in the triangle. And #2. People looking for RP would have a much easier time finding other people to RP with.
But what do I know?
