  2. Slaps Davy Crockett on the roof. "This bad boy has so much bang"
  3. Group Theme Song Shortly after the ship has left everyone stranded, there seemed to be no refuge in sight. The remaining human survivors of the crash made their way into Berezino and gathered at the school. There, they weighed options about where they could go and who they would take with them. They decided to stick together and make their way inland to find supplies and maybe others. They encountered more infected, careful not to rouse their senses, they snuck around. They went inward toward Kabinino. There, they were told, was a military safe house conducted by the CDF, UN as well as the WHO. While there, they ran into many survivors much like themselves, stranded, alone and without aid. It was there too, that they first encountered the VDV. Russian Militants sporting red berets and thick accents. There they imposed their own laws while CDF, NATO, UN and WHO stood by and allowed the bullying of the new-citizens of Chernarus. The group decided it was best that they leave and build a home elsewhere until the promised evacuation was delivered by NATO, The UN and WHO. While in this camp, it came to light that one of the survivors was doing some illicit drug selling and gun smuggling. While he ran, his girlfriend was arrested under suspicion of aiding him in the smuggling. The VDV took her to an airfield where they kept her locked away. She was beaten, tortured and released to deliver a message. The man, Garrett would be found and put the trial. The VDV were hunting him down and would continue to bully the group until he was found. Meanwhile, the camp was shut down and they were forced to leave the camp to go back to Kabanino where they were forced to remain. She has been stabbed in the hand, her ribs broken and her face cut and bruised. She refused to tell anyone what had happened, but whenever the VDV were present she seemed to cower. While her wounds were being treated she was under round the clock watch by the Russians. Luckily for the group, there was a doctor, working with the UN, who rescued and smuggled them out of the Kabanino camp. Brackett took them away to Altar radio tower. The other half of the group that had not been captured met with Taryn, Brackett, and his friend and took Taryn off of his hands. After they were rescued, it came to light that a member of the group, and older man named Rysen, had told the VDV that Garrett’s girlfriend Taryn was involved with the smuggling though it was known that she wasn’t. He had done this out of spite for Garrett and wanted to teach him a lesson by putting the young girl in danger. He hadn’t know, however, that she would be tortured. That night, at Devil’s castle summer camp, a fight broke out and Rysen was tied up along with John, a reporter. In anger, Garrett executed the old man, in front of the entire group to make an example. For the entirety of the group, it was the first time they had seem someone executed, but wouldn’t the last. He made sure they knew this too would happen to them if they messed with him or the rest of his people. In fear, Taryn sent Garrett away and they hunkered down at the Devil’s castle summer camp. Days Later, the VDV came and stole Taryn away again. This time because they could not find Garrett and because they had run from Kabinino. Their new camp was smack on the border of their new quarantine. They told taryn the only way she could keep the camp and help civilians as she had been doing, was to give them information as it was given to her. She agreed to be an informant to save her people and keep them safe. That wasn’t enough however. Ermak, then the station leader of the VDV present in the country, took Taryn in the night and used her as bait to lure out Garrett. Garrett showed up for his trial… for the Murder of Rysen, for smuggling and abetting, and for contraband. He was put to death by firing squad while Taryn watched on. While distressed and emotionally ruined, they returned her again to kabanino where she refused to tell her friends what had happened. Instead, in a cold and proud voice, the news was delivered by the VDV: Garrett had been brought to justice. The next few days were a blur to the group. There wasn’t enough words to explain the pain, betrayal and painful silences that followed. Oliver, the group’s youngest member, had found himself with the responsibility of keeping the group in line, along with Samia, Winston and Joey. The group continued to feed information to the VDV in exchange for the allowance of keeping their camp. Ermak and his men would stop by frequently to ‘check’ on them. People of all types would stop by to get needed items, eat, drink and be on their way. It wasn’t long before the quiet was broken. While some uneasiness had caused the VDV to withdraw, a member or two remained in the country, hiding with the survivors at their camp. They had become criminals of desertion. One of them, Anton, had recently come into Taryn’s view as a potential lover. This caused upheaval within the ranks of the survivors. They couldn’t trust an ex-VDV member, let alone one of which who was personally there and had helped to torture Taryn. She reassured them and begged they give him a chance. As this was happening, a power vacuum caused many small groups that wanted a foothold to rise and begin bullying those around them. One of which, came to the camp and demanded 60% of the profits of the camp. The group tried to explain that there were no ‘profits’ and that the camp was a charity, to which they were told that they then would have no problem giving them everything. They were told the camp no longer belonged to them. Anton, Winston, Joey, and others stood their ground and a firefight broke out. Winston was killed. Joey, John, Anton were severely injured and they lost the camp. Defeated, they retreated to Severograd. They buried Winston there. They then moved further north to a small town called Nagornoe, where they made their home to prepare for winter. Anton has talked the rest into taking up mercenary work amongst other thing to prepare for the winter. They needed hundreds of cans of food. On top of this, just before the camp was taken, it had been announced that Taryn was pregnant. They worked hard, stealing, working, robbing people. They were having a hard time making ends meet. It wasn’t until an unlikely set of friends made themselves available to the group that they got the help they needed. They went by the Gremlins, and at the time Brackett had become a member. He offered to help them, provide food and make their work a little easier. Meanwhile, Anton left to work with their members and promised to return with some much needed food and relief supplies. To this day, he still hasn’t returned. After he disappeared, with Joey out of work, and Taryn newly miscarried as well as the recent heat rising from warring groups: Taryn and Samia retreated to the woods. They lived alone for some time before they eventually were split up due to unforeseen troubles. Taryn would suffer an unfortunate fate, brought on by terrible circumstances. A man named Borris would pick up her torch to lead the group, hoping to carry on Taryns values. Borris now attempts to pick up the pieces and keep the group together.

  4. I regret to say it, yet inevitable, with life coming to, and group activity at a low. I wish to archive riptide. I as a leader have a lot of coming things in life so I cant be here as actively as I should be. As well I would like to focus my attention towards other things. On that note, to all my, our, members. Friends, its been fun, Riptide will return in the future. I can't say I could have had anymore fun then leading you guys, watching our stories develop together. Watching your characters grow as our time lines progressed, and weaving threads in the fabric of eachothers stories, as well as the servers. It was beyond fun, I'm glad I could lead you guys for the time being, and I hope to again in the future. To those of you that I have talked to and have agreed upon it, our story does not end here, we're not just "vanishing". I plan on writing up a story to describe our leave and who shall be coming with us and where we are going in this next chapter of riptides life. This is not the end of Riptide. To our friends and allies, its been fun, we'll be back in the future. -B // Request to archive.

    What would you like to see in the server.

    Does this have to do with you wandering, I'll have you know I run an closed state, no corruption from outside sources, like the DPRK or Turkmenistan..... You can apply for a press pass, it will give you, minimal, access.....
  6. I'm aware of the inactive members, one was inactive due to personal life problems, the other has just been in active, I'll update this though as requested. -B

    *Borris would turn on his vox system, speaking into the air waves in his naturally somber tone.* "I was informed about a radio message that went out, something about fuel for a ship." "I dont know if you're still looking for what you're looking for." "But I might have something, a deal that can make us both happy, settle what was going on." "Bring these events to an end." *He would pause thinking to himself.* "If you hear this, let me know if you're interested...." *He would shut off his vox system awaiting reply.*
  8. @MichTheMedic Sad to see you go, but good luck on your new character. I hope to run into you in game.
  9. Pffft, I already beat you to that. keep your "paws" off you dirty member snatchers.
  10. Roster updated. Removed @Fives due to inactivity. @Liberty Berntson Sad to see you succumb to such things. I hope to run into any future characters you make. -B
  11. The hush slow clap of waves can be heard kissing the sandy shore line. Foot steps pace through the shallow sands towards the echoing waters, eventually meeting the sea them self. Splashing of a single pair of feet would interrupt the subtle dance of the current. Dear Taryn... A Russian man would read an unfolded letter to the somber waters. It feels like just yesterday I was talking to you, like we were having a laugh and sharing our joy. Intertwined in our emotional friction, solving each others problems, comforting one another. Some times I swear I still see you, like you're not actually gone. I hear you laughing, or sometimes I see you out of the corner of my eye. Passing behind me in door ways, while I look to the reflections of mirrors. This might sound morbid, perhaps self inflicting. But sometimes I swear I feel you through Calandra. Your soft touch, translated through her, like an essence of you rubbed off onto her. Like you've come to let me know you're still here, still watching, and still care. I see you in others as well, I recently had a fight with Tatiana, for some reason I seen you in her. A certain fire... I think you two, if you had known each other longer, could have been good friends. Sometimes, I pass by the last place I seen you happy, vavilovo, I stare to the house you once took up. still at times, despite being the one to take lead, I wish to call out to you, to say. "Whats our next steps T?" "What do you want me to do?" "Whats our plan to solving this?" You always knew something to say. The last words you muttered to me before you departed this world were. "I love you..." I just wanted to let you know, if you never heard me say it all those times I thought of you. I love you too. I hope this letter reaches you, where ever you are now, that you see it and know. I'm trying my best to keep everyone safe, for you. I hope to see you again one day, some place. love. ~Borris. As he finishes, he would fold the letter into an origami paper boat, ensuring the folds were near perfection. He would bend down placing the paper boat softly onto the water, it slowly being whisked out into the sea, on its final voyage. The Russian man would watch as his paper boat filled with his words of sorrow and love set sail. Slowly turning around, looking over his shoulder to his letter as he walks away from the body of water, his hands would be snug in his jacket. He would let out a deep sigh, pulling out several hand rolls from his jackets pocket dropping them into the sand as he takes leave. Reaching into his jacket once more he would pull out a hard candy, unraveling it, Placing it into his mouth, he would hum the tune of "Kukushka" The man sets for the direction of home.
  12. Ooof, I got a few, but i'll stick to the more PG one. Long while a go, got together with a few close friends of mine, we all got drunk, obviously. we all ended up getting so plastered a few of us threw up, I threw up some, then proceeded to help the others through their shit. I recall shoveling vomit with my bare hands down our "hosts" tub while taking care of the guys who did all the vomiting. I didn't really care about the vomit, cause I was to drunk. 10/10 would do again.
  13. welcome @MichTheMedic about time you decide to join us! Glad to finally have you aboard!
  14. "Thank you and everyone in Riptide for making me want to play this game again. You're a lot of really good people and you remind me of what it was like to play when there was a lot more focus and attention given to the RP aspect of things (From my perspective at least). And you're just awesome individually as well. Look forward to seeing you again soon after I've had a chance, IC and OOC to rest up a bit and get in a better headspace" - @Mace On behalf of riptide, we love you to mace. you may have never been an official member, but as I said to you, you're one of us. love ya friend, take care, we all hope to see you soon. -love.

  19. POV I was asked to come along to help @Roach, @Mr. Blue, they wanted to do something over at green mountain. We walk up there and discuss details of what they wanted to do. we arrive at green mountain and do some RP there. We we're accompanied by @Jman14102, @Genji, @Dirty Dan, @Liberty Berntson, Taryn was there as well, but she left before the initiation. So, I ended up finding out @LouieRP approached outside the tower, went over and shot the shit with him, joked around ect, he was claiming he was drunk and so on. Asks if any one we needed killed, I think then he spots @Dirty Dan then goes "Hold on I gotta talk on the radio" he then proceeds to run off into the woods talking over his radio. I'd say a good 5 minutes later after that the "Communists" show up, I never pulse checked them and I haven't learned their voices well enough to link them to their players. I was out side the gate at green mountain as @Dirty Dan got held up, they shouted for him to put his hands up, but no one else. @Dirty Dan would comply to the commies orders, as this happen I would open the gate and approach the situation. Three armed men would have taken @Dirty Dan giving him orders to move around, he would be herded over to the wall of the jail house at green mountain. @Dirty Dan would try to explain his side, how anything he did in the past was due to self defense, ect, of course the lead commie doing all the talking wasn't really taking that, nor really cared. The lead commie would continue to say and repeat stuff about how Dan killed their men, it didn't matter if it was in self defense, you killed one of our guys, ect. The others two just stood around as guns ensuring no one initiated. @Liberty Berntson and @Genji would attempt to intervene at points, near the end of the fairly short conversation with and obvious end. @Dirty Dan would be asked by the lead commie if he had any last words. @Liberty Berntson would try to approach to ask Dan if he had any ado's to say, or if he wanted a prayer or something like that? The lead commie would then retort not allowing anymore conversation to lead on, blasting Dan with a single shot through his head. Of course the wound being played out differently as the death was not a perma kill. The commies run off, I think they say something as they trot off through the front gate, I cant remember the words correctly. @Liberty Berntson and I RP helping @Dirty Dan stitching his wounds up, ect in the jail house. End scene one. Scene two. I'm approached by the commie (now back in vybor.) who I believe put the round through @Dirty Dan he tells me how Dan was working with viridian and that they killed countless people. The reason he "killed" @Dirty Dan was due to the fact he shot some kid named alexi through the throat who was dear to @G19RP. He basically told me all of this so there was no misconceptions with my group thinking the commies were bad people for just shooting a man. End Scene two
  20. Welcome @shipwreck117 & @Reckless Stay out of trouble will ya?
  21. Welcome @Ryan Carter to the collective No flirting with Tatiana....
  22. *Borris would have been sitting on the side of his bed, having set his radio to auto scan the waves as he picked away at his ingrown toe nail.* *The radio would auto stop the scan as it receives a strong carrier signal.* *Scouts cheery voice would boom through his radio, gaining his attention, he would sit to listen, all the way through to Robbies message.* *As Robbie finishes, he would pick up the radio from his bed side table, pressing down the PTT, his vox system not plugged in.* *He would speak in his thick monotone Russian accent.* "What do I need to hear? What is this about the mountain men? Tell me everything that happened... I'm listening...." *He would release his PTT, awaiting response.*
  23. What needs to be changed? I'm not aware to much of the past stuff if it involves the story line of the VDV. send me the edits that need to be made, I'll update it accordingly.
  24. As requested, moved @Mr. Blue off the official roster. Hope to see you IG as your other character. As well, hope to see you return to the riptide in the future. -B
