Day 1 of Record: It's nice to take a break from roaming house to house and to take a seat by a tree, the weather is lovely for a change without a cloud in the sky. Today I've lightly filled my bag with lots of food and drink, far more than I will ever need for ones self. I have everything I need to keep myself well looked after right now, fresh clothes, food, water, a gun, it's strange to think anyone can be comfortable and... Dare I say it, happy in this rising hell. For the life of my I still can't read Russian but I have been roaming around by a huge forest and higher up in altitude, this village I stumbled across even had a Church! It was about time I found my inner religion of Christianity, it's at times like today that I feel God is looking down on me with a helping hand. For the last few days God has guided me and helped me along my journey, it feels only right to do a bit of giving myself. If anyone finds my journal after I pass, or I lose my book, head to a house of the lord to find help if you are struggling to feed and drink. It's quite nice knowing that there's working Polaroid cameras even after the world has gone to shit...
Now all I need is a new forum signature with transparent background and I'm sorted
give me 1 minute
not as good as the ones @Spartan used to make but I tried ok
So, I'm a very little known person. I never really connected with anyone when I used to play previously. I guess you could call me a lone wolf among wolf packs. However I used to play with those of 'The Cavaliers', led famously by @Aristocrat who was the friendliest face I have ever met in any RP community. I've recently started playing DayZ again and with that, thought of coming back to DayZRP. So hello again. I'm sure I'll bump into a few faces in game, however through my characters persona, I wouldn't guarantee a friendly encounter.
Birmingham born, London raised. Marcus Aston AKA Marc was born into an uptown family who took pride in themselves, it's no secret that the African American family has had a diverse history, with ancestors dating back to slavery, the Aston family have worked up the chain to become a respected family name. The peak of the family falls to World War 2 where Marc's great grandfather was company CEO of a small firearms company that helped supply the British Army through 1941 to 1945. Marc's father Edwin continues the family trend of being a CEO, his mother is a hugely successful Lawyer and his sister headed into her last year of university to graduate and receive honours in Medical Practice, so what is Marc's story? He fell from the tree, he got into the wrong crowd from a young age, shoplifting at the age of 11, doing drugs at 13 and even getting into the young offenders list at 15 before having a jail sentence at 18, but was later released on bail. Did that stop him though? No it didn't. At the age of 26 he was arrested for a gang related attack on a mansion which was owned by a certain individual one of the other gang members had a serious issue with. Marc was also arrested with attempted murder with a handgun, breaking and entering as well as assault on a police officer with a kitchen knife he obtained while inside the house. There was no bail for Marc, this time he would serve 14 years in a Category A prison in London, also known as 'Belmarsh'. 2 years into his sentence, the British government trialed a new prisoner housing plan in which they would transfer some of Englands most notorious criminals to a new prison in the Russian/Ukrainian justice system. 4 months before the infamous virus outbreak Marc took up his cell on the lone island just off the coast of Chenarus. The prison fell as the country fell to its knees in the coming months, Marc escaped, but no one knows of his whereabouts... Or his mental state.
Logan Lorenzo, shortened nick name 'Renzo' is a simple young man. He doesn't have the knowledge of other people, he doesn't have the common sense or the capability of most, but what he lacks in knowledge he excels in craftsmanship. During his younger years in the rural areas of Tex' he lived with his father and younger sister, who which he put before himself, and that would be the only person. Although later released on bail he served his last teen in jail for attempted murder of someone who assaulted his sister. Being in a rural area he was very well equipped with firearm and melee weapons to deal with the pests on his land, nothing phased him when it came to extermination, even to the point he bludgeoned a coyote with a barbed baseball bat. Renzo's interest in weapons, arson and other miscellaneous military tech took a little stride in November 2009, he heard of a recently ended civil war in a place called Chernarus, although he could never pronounce that name. He spent a week over in the war torn country before heading back to the his homeland. His knowledge and memory of Chernarus would ultimately fade to black until several years later he sees a viral video of a helicopter flying into, to his knowledge, restricted areas in the place he once visited. Renzo wanted to get involved in a fight he hadn't had a clue about. He had previous military experience as an Army Reservist, however he seeked a new beginning. Once he got over to Chernarus he had no idea what he was in for...
I would also further like to clarify I was not under any influence of drugs or alcohol, I also was not on my phone or distracted with anything in the car. It was a simple case of me not looking straight as I was looking towards the flow of traffic instead of ahead of me as I assumed the front of me was perfectly clear.
Hey guys. I thought I'd share a story that happened to me at 7:25pm last night. I was driving home from work on what I thought was going to be a normal day. The drive home is never full of drama, it's the usual case of a 15 minute journey on a dual and a single carriage-way. I've never had any issue driving since the first day I began learning. I have been driving legally for almost 3 years now and I have never once been involved in a car crash my whole life. Yesterday I was at a roundabout, I was about to merge onto it when the car ahead of me slammed on his brakes during his merge, from what I saw the roundabout was clear but obviously he saw differently, his car was half-way onto the roundabout when he stopped. I was looking at the roundabout and looking for cars coming my direction, to which I didn't see anything coming. While I was still looking towards the roundabout the car in front of me was out of the corner of my eye which is why I didn't see him, next thing I knew... Bang. The result of the crash can be seen in the image below. If there's any message I can give it's always be 100% concentrated while driving, never let your guard down once. This was my mistake. I have plenty of friends who drive on a daily basis. I was prevented from injury thanks to the fact I'm not stupid enough to drive anywhere without a seat belt. I would like to clarify to all those reading this who didn't already know about the crash that I am perfectly fine, slight bruising in the sternum but that's it. The other driver who I had the incident with was a real nice guy. He was calm and helped me relax during the whole ordeal, we exchanged details accordingly and he then left the scene as his car was in full working legal order. Please, for everyone of my friends stay safe on the road, this is a true wake-up call for myself as this has made me fully aware that anything can happen on the road. I'm lucky that this didn't end up worse than what it was. R.I.P to my first car though, almost 3 years of owning it and almost 20'000 miles by myself clocked. It's been a good first car and I will definitely miss the thing...
This may be a bit of an unpopular suggestions but just hear me out. Metagaming is frowned upon in this community, as well as any serious roleplay server, there's no denying that and you'd be pretty silly to disagree. Using 3rd person view to peek around walls or doors is considered metagaming as it uses a form of out of character (OOC) advantage since your character can't see around the corner you're looking beyond. I have need numerous player reports that show either the reporter or the defendant showing clear signs (or even in the POV evidence) where they use this exploit, and on a personal level I do get annoyed about this. I have been killed on many servers as a result of exploiting this 3rd person privilege and it is unbelievably frustrating. This server according to staff allows this as "There's not much we can do about it". Now obviously it can't be punished in game as it happens however it should (in my opinion) be punished if evidence on a player report clearly demonstrated the use of this.
