    The Moretti Famiglia [IC Recruitment]

    The thread is very well put together and the graphics are very well done. I can only really find a couple things awry in the entire thread Nit Picky Shit that you can choose to adhere to or not The modern mob doesn't tend to deal much arms smuggling. Modern, sophisticated gangs, instead run prostitution rings, deal drugs, run casinos, run internet scams, fix the stock market, and try to influence American politics. If they need weapons for whatever reason, they usually buy them domestically. Even if they were dealing guns, considering most American mobs are more powerful than any Chernarussian mob ever would be, an American mob would never travel abroad for a simple gun deal. They would make the Chernarussians come to them, and if they refused, the Americans would find someone else. The only reason I say these are optional is that the way Tony's original mob was is still possible, albeit unlikely. Stuff you actually need to pay attention to The lore for the group seems to focus on one single man way too much. While the group would most definitely not be around without him, any reader should not feel like they are reading Tony Morretti's life story when they are trying to find out how the Moretti Famiglia was started. Like I said, I realize that this may difficult but it's important to create a balance. Considering you already have so much written down and I wouldn't want you to have to erase any of your work, I would advise that you make a spoiler containing 'Tony's Story' and then maybe have another section devoted to just the group with maybe a little less of every single person or group Tony has interacted with in the last 10 months. Like said, this looks great and I know that it will be great. Make these changes and you should be good to go! Thanks.

    Capax Infiniti (Serious Recruitment Only)

    This thread is very well put together and I enjoy the quotes scattered throughout. The only gripe I can find is that some of the beginning lore is a little hard to follow as it seems the focus seems to change too much with too little context or transition. While I may be a little late, it's always better to respond feedback appropriately regardless of whether it's negative or positive feedback. Senseless back and forth or pretty attempts to rebuke the person giving feedback makes the entire group look bad. Please make any needed changes when you can. Thanks.

    Lost Thunder "Tipping Scales" - Post Event Lore Update

    Post Lost Thunder Lore Post Due to a ravaging tempest the night before, followed by an encounter with a hundred walker hoard, Nikolai Belsky of the 12th Rocket Brigade found himself kilometers away from OTR-21 Toschka. With a broken leg, and stranded on a castle in a foreign land, Nikolai considers his options. He quickly fired his emergency flare gun but to no avail. Desperate times lead to desperate measures and this was clear when Nikolai foolishly sent an unencrypted radio transmission containing his location to Russian command in an effort to get evacuated. He was met with silence. Although he had used a code in an attempt to conceal his location, Nikolai was very quickly found by local, Everest Casmir. Due to an earlier radio transmission from the Russian military containing important details regarding Nikolai, and the information he held, Everest, along with many others in South Zagoria wanted to get to the Belsky. Casmir promised Belsky safe passage to Russia and tended to his injuries. Soon they were on their way to Grozovoy Pass, a known route of Russian-Chernarussian traffic. Last known photo of Nikolai with his initial savior, Everest. Many days later this picture was recovered and sent to Belsky's mother. Becoming increasingly frustrated with lack of response from his superiors, Belsky continued to speak on the same radio frequency begging for a proper evacuation. Still, he was met with silence. Further down the road Nikolai and Everest intercepted a truck looking for them. The occupants of the truck were an unknown Russian man, simply named Vasily, and an agent of Chernarus's COBR. The COBR agent had intercepted the agent and was forcing him to help him find Nikolai, so that the CDF could possibly take his OTR and its precious warhead for themselves. Being outgunned 3-1, the COBR agent was quickly restrained and Casmir and Belsky took the truck leaving Vasily to deal with his ex-captor. Just outside of the industrial town of Novoya Petrovka, Nikolai and Casmir's truck was intercepted by members of an Irish gun smuggling operation. Almost immediately Casmir was shot up and left to die in the streets while Belsky was led into a nearby building. There he was interrogated and forced to disclose the location of the OTR 21 and fervently promised that no more harm would come to him or the Russian people. Upon inquiry, the Irish told Belsky that they intended to take the warhead off the missile and travel to the United Kingdom where they would employ the weapon. The discarded missile after the Irish gun smugglers have unloaded the warhead Ever more eager to get home, yet dreading the inevitable court martial, the operator continues north to Grozovoy Pass. Once there, Belsky was greeted by a collection of cheerful foreigners and a squad of Russian armed forces who all seemed very happy to see him alive. Belsky recognized one of the Russians as an old colleague of his, but the others remained unfamiliar. The Russians had already called in a helicopter to pick up the men up but in the meantime, Belsky caught them all up on what had happened to him in the last 48 hours. As soon as the Mi-17 landed the status quo changed immediately. All the unfamiliar Russians suddenly changed their tone and quickly set about lighting the Mi-17 up until there was very little left. Pictured is the type of craft destroyed by local Chernarussian insurgents Unbeknownst to Belksy, the men set before him had been Chernarussian nationalists all along. Just like the rest of South Zagoria, they too had drooled over the idea of operating a Toschka and they were not pleased to hear that the Irish had already claimed their prize. They lead Nikolai and his unnamed friend to a house where they would surely meet their end. En route, Belsky slipped his copatriot a cyanide pill so they could go out with honor. Soon after the Chernarussians announced intentions of execution, both men took their own life. To the Russian military, this was seen was as a complete embarrassment and having lost both an OTR-21 and an Mi-17, Major General Yevgeny Nikiforov was demoted immediately. Both Nikolai Belsky and Dmitiri Oroslav of the 100th Reconnaissance brigade were simply listed as MIA and the entire incident was swept under the rug like it never happened. All units of the 58th who hadn't already done so were pulled well back of the Chernarussian front and prepared for the challenges ahead of them. Major General Yevgeny Nikiforov shortly before his demotion Nothing is known of who or what the COBR agent who found Belsky was. Members of COBR continue to roam South Zagoria gathering information, and pulling strings for the betterment of what's left of their government. The warhead remains unaccounted for. It was last seen being stripped from the OTR missile by the Irish Gun Smugglers. This sequence of events represents a major embarrassment for the Russian Armed forces.

    Lore Event Series "Tipping Scales" - Part 2 - Lost Thunder

    Lore Event Series "Tipping Scales" - Part 2 - Lost Thunder Backstory Recent border clashes in South Zagoria between the Russian military and Chernarussian forces had opened up a wide area of devastation along the national divide. A morass of destroyed vehicles and uprooted vegetation had been created by the air forces of both sides. With no real need for formalities at this point, neither side has put forth an official declaration of war. Therefore at one point along the border it would seem like total war with explosions and gunfire everywhere you look while just a few kilometers further down there could be complete silence as both sides simply stare tensely at one another. Knowing full well that they posses superior manpower and equipment the Russians have slowly started to probe the northern border of Chernarus, however because of internal conflicts among the top brass of the Russian military, a full offensive cannot take place. The Chernarussian Air Force's Su-25s and Mig-23s have exploited the gaps in Russian dominance and devastated a significant strong-point north of Kamensk. No Chernarussian aircraft have been shot down as of yet, but the wounded Russian bear is still potent despite the fact that it is defending areas of territory all the way from the Estonian border down to the Black Sea and all the way across to Vladivostok in the far east. Major safezones like Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Krasnoyar must be protected from massive wandering hordes, and recent escalation in rural rebellions have led to organized and armed vigilantes eliminating MVD units and seizing areas formerly controlled by the State. Russia is now a patchwork of safezones, infected areas, toxic zones, and violent wastes of quasi-civilization populated by the mob and other factions of looters that are in a fight for control. Regardless of their readiness, Major General Yevgeny Nikiforov of the 58th army based in Russia's Southern Military District, has started a psychological campaign of fear against the CDF. Since the first Chernarussian-Russian skirmishes occurred, Nikiforov ordered daily troop movements near the Chernarussian border in attempt to showcase the full might of Russian armed forces. On any given day it would not be uncommon to see convoys of T-72s,T-90s, BTR's and mobile missile launchers. The Russian Air Force has only seen limited use in recent weeks as ground forces have taken on the majority of the work and most aircraft are in heavy use elsewhere within the federation. NATO remnants in eastern Europe have re-emerged, and have proven to be a thorn in Putin's side as he struggles to remain in control of the nation that was and continues to be considered the one to have weathered the almost year-long crisis the best. For the Chernarussians little is at stake other than showing citizens and supporters alike that it can still stand up to its northern neighbor. Despite the numbers of Russian troops at the border a massive invasion is not on the table due to the state of South Zagoria and the need to retain a semblance of an actual country. The fate of Russia's entire southern region including Krasnoyar, Sochi, and Rostov-on-Don is at stake, and any military escalation could lead to massive changes in the current order. However imposing recent shows of force might be, they have proven quite costly to the Russian Armed Forces as several armored vehicles have broken down, or have simply run out of gas. Feeling the heat from his superiors in Moscow, Nikiforov orders just one more show of force and he wishes to make this one the most memorable of them all. Shortly following air raids on Russian border posts, he ordered a number of SS-21 "Tochka" ballistic missile launchers within clear view of the CDF. They have been deployed within range of the entire length of the Chernarussian government's coastal "Green Zone", and have the ability to strike island bases, population centers, barracks, and industrial areas that are critical to the ongoing stability of the Chernarussians capacity to guard, feed, and keep their safezone secure from enemies and infected hordes alike. These launchers are present within Russian bases from Belozersk to South Zagoria. *an astute listener might hear this radio broadcast early in the morning* “Внимание, внимание, это команда для всех позывных. 9K79 Точка 12-й ракетной бригады, по-видимому, исчез на пути к регулярному обслуживанию вблизи южной границы. Мы считаем, что экипаж оказался в беде и отказался от своего автомобиля. Нахождение этого автомобиля теперь будет главным приоритетом 58-й армии, иначе мы рискуем потерять эту ракету любому из диких людей, бегущих около границы. Выведите команду” Situation A mobile ballistic missile launcher of the 12 rocket artillery brigade of the Russian Armed Forces has been immobilized just north of South Zagoria in an area of destroyed woodland and frequent clashes. This launcher contains a chemical warhead powerful enough to plague a town with harmful gases for several hours and would be a very powerful weapon for anyone to possess. The operator of the Tochka was forced to leave his launcher on the border line and is somewhere in South Zagoria nursing a serious leg injury. The event will start when a radio chatter thread is dropped with the sole clue to the whereabouts of the operative. Groups or individuals must determine where the operator is. In his possession, the operator has a book with the coordinates of the Tochka. Once a party has found the operator they are presented with a number of options. They can either: Deliver the book to the Chernarussian state. With this weapon the state could deliver a massive strike to the BPR or the Russians or they could reconfigure the warhead to something more useful and use it as they wish. Because of the parties service to the state, they will be showered with rewards. Deliver the book to the BPR. With this weapon of mass destruction, the BPR could strike one of the remaining safe havens of Chernaurus. BPR is sure to reward the party greatly for delivering the book. Deliver the book to the Russians. With this back in their hands, the Russians can continue to operate a tight ship and stay mostly secure in the southern region for much longer. Because of their continued military might, they will be able to greatly assist the delivering party in potential future ventures. Treat the operator, and bribe him into helping you. The operator is at wit’s end and will do just about anything to escape certain death. If you treat the operator of his injuries and bribe him, he will set up camp by the Tochka and be on standby for when you or your group desire to use it. In order to set up a camp, the operator must be given a tent and at least 5 items of food or water. (Keep in mind, that there is a very specific set of conditions regarding the use of the launcher and the LM’s will discuss these with the group) Kill the operator and burn the book. No group, military or not, should have access to this kind of weaponry. Things to Keep in Mind If you choose options 1-3, as soon as you get the book and the operator you need to make a radio thread directed towards the desired party. They will arrange for a pickup however they will want the pilot with you as proof that this is the real book. If you choose option 4, you need to deliver the Operator with the book in hand to the northern border safe and sound. The operator will inform you where specifically on the border. If none of the criteria above is fulfilled by the end of the alloted time, the Russian Military will find the launcher and bring it back to base. TIME: 18:00-20:00 server time. Date: Sunday, May 13th

    *A man's voice would cry over the radio waves* Команда, это эхо-речь, в которой было так темно. Мы пошли прямо к большому стаду едоков, и мы быстро побежали. Скарабей перестал двигаться, и мы были вынуждены покинуть машину. Мой водитель был ... съеден. В моем замешательстве мне пришлось пробежать несколько километров на юг, и теперь я в Чернавре. У меня сломанная нога, и мне нужно использовать гражданское радио. Я не хочу рисковать сообщать вам, где находится МБР на радио, поэтому я дам вам свое местоположение в простом коде на радио. Старый, высокий, африканский. Пожалуйста, приходите быстро, я не знаю, сколько у меня времени.” *You would hear the man coughing and then the transmission would end*

    Vanguard of the Fasces

    While the background is very...unique, it's not completely outside the realm of possibility. I did the enjoy the read and the colorful figurative language was a nice touch. I do have serious qualms about the goals though and there is only one real tangible goal on that list. All the others could be molded into one ongoing goal. In order to be accepted this group really needs a few different tangible goals and not the same goal reworded 5 times. On a different note, the staff team will need to see that this group can be active. It appears that most members in this group have just recently come back to the server after taking a couple long breaks and need to show that they are going to be here for a while. Please make any appropriate changes as soon as you can. Thanks.

    What are you talking about? This appears to be a much different group than most of these guys have tried. Also there are many new faces in this group compared to just a few months ago. You really should contemplate your words more carefully before unloading on anyone's group thread.

    Lore Event Series "Tipping Scales" - Part 2 - Lost Thunder

    The event will last two hours max. If none of the options are fulfilled then Russians will recapture the vehicle. The instructions are very clear in the OP about how a group can use the Toschka. They treat the operator of his injuries, give him something nice, and then give him some supplies for a camp. They are then to escort him to a certain point on the border. Once this is done the delivering party will be able to call a strike anywhere in a 115 mile radius. However, because this is a game where we want to have fun, the missle cannot be launched to anywhere in the playable world.
  22. PCJames

    Lore Event Series "Tipping Scales" - Part 2 - Lost Thunder

    For the sake of the event, if you kill the operator yourself, you'll find yourself unable to operate the Toschka.
  23. PCJames

    Lore Event Series "Tipping Scales" - Part 2 - Lost Thunder

    Where in the OP does it state that it's an ICBM? I used the term ICBM in my comment simply because the casual passerby will understand that better than saying 'OTR-21'. Regarding your gripe about the air force perhaps you have forgotten Major's last lore post regarding the state of Russian military structure. Several internal factions have sprung up causing lots of internal conflict that is slowly causing an implosion for the Russian military, hence why they are having to fall back and condense their forces and not waste precious men on a country such as Chernarus. Regardless, I'm sorry if reading this made you contemplate the noose. If it's really so painful to even look that, then please don't participate in the event. I wouldn't want any harm to come to anyone because of something they read on an Internet forum.
