  1. Used to have fun interactions and meaningful rp. Now I walk around for a couple hours before I'mm robbed by anarchy. No real RP just take my shit or I die. Real fun. So much for the solo roleplayer. I came to rp. This Anarchy bullshit is not RP.
  2. Brian Monaghan was born in a small town in Northern Ontario. His father ran a moderately successful hunting retreat while his mother was the local doctor. Brian grew up heavily influenced by his parents as there were few children his age he actually saw outside of school being in such a remote location. He would often go along with his father on hunting and camping trips. To this day he still enjoys camping in remote parts of the world though he doesn't hunt as much anymore except when visiting his father. A very compassionate person, a trait he inherited from his Mother and as such led him down the path to becoming a Doctor as well. Not content to just take over his mother's role as the town doctor. Brian would complete his Doctorate in medicine and take fellowship programs and residencies in Toronto becoming a trauma surgeon. Finding a way to incorporate his personal and professional life led him to join Doctors without Borders which allowed him to help people all over the world. While in Western Africa dealing with the Ebola crisis, Brian was transferred with several others to help out with relief efforts in Chernarus. Completely unprepared for when the infection began, the aid station that Brian had helped set up was soon overrun by the infected. Many people were killed during the chaos. Brian was cut off from the others and was forced to retreat into the forest in order to survive. Brian had been surviving on his own in the woods several days thanks to his camping experience. Necessity would sometimes find Brian scavenging isolated farm houses that had been abandoned during the outbreak for additional food and equipment to help him survive. He would never allow himself to get too close to any cities due to the sheer number of infected that dwelled there and the sounds of automatic weapon fire. Brian tried to escape Chernarus to the north and west only to find that quarantine had been put in effect and anyone approaching the border was shot on sight. Brian retreated back to one of the abandoned farm houses and began to prepare to hold out until the epidemic had passed. The solitude would eventually wear on him and Brian finally set out into Chernarus to see if there were any survivors and if he could help anyone he could. Over time Brian would encounter survivors and offer assistance in any way that he could. More often than not he would just be beaten and robbed of the supplies he had gathered and left to survive once more with nothing more than the clothes on his back. He was determined to survive though, the oath he had taken to do no harm would not allow him to do anything more than reluctantly comply with bandit groups that roamed Chernarus. Though he would not pull the trigger except to hunt and defend himself from the infected, it still offered a modicum of deterrence if he pointed a weapon at a would be bandit. No longer as willing to help anyone he came across he became much more cautious of who he would help. He will do his best to survive this ordeal, keep moving and above all else… Survive.

  4. Hey Everyone! Took a hiatus from DayZRP when I got married last june. The new update got me re-energized to play and after familiarizing myself with the new features and content that have been added I felt a huge urge to rejoin this amazing community. My whitelist just got approved and I look forward to some great RP with whomever I run into out there! Feels good to be back!
  5. Make sure your character has some flaws, not too many though as that can handcuff your RP. It's not the skills your character has that makes them interesting, it's their flaws. Just make sure when you choose your flaws that you do your research on those particular flaws if you are not familiar with them. That being said research your proficiencies and skills as well. The more familiar you are with your characters strengths, weaknesses and general demeanor the easier the RP will be. Oh and keep a notepad and pen/pencil on hand. Write down things your character has learned in their travels and people you have met. It's probably the most useful tool you can have while you role play.
  6. The best weapon is the one you are most comfortable with. All guns are deadly in the right hands. I've seen people singlehandedly take out entire groups with a .22
  7. I spend a lot of time Lone Wolf, and I actually sing to myself in game with the mic open. Haven't had anyone run into me on a long trip while singing yet but I feel it's something my character would do if out in the middle of nowhere with nothing but his thoughts to accompany him. Once I find a town though that all changes and I'm as silent as a mouse.
  8. The key to roleplaying a good character is not their skillset but rather their flaws. The little things that make them human. Flaws are what really define a character and make them memorable. But flaws to can be like a ship on the water. A ship can float on water but it can also sink in it. Have a handful of interesting yet believable flaws. These flaws will govern how your character acts in certain situations and will add depth to your RP, just don't go overboard on the flaws or it will look to unrealistic and handcuff you as a role player.
  9. The only glitch I've roleplayed is when a guy dropped a weapon in a house and it disappeared on him. As he was trying to find his weapon I asked him if it fell through the floorboards and if so he may not be able to find it. This was an acceptable explanation for what happened and everyone rolled with it.
  10. Here's a pro-tip: Stop sprinting - You burn your food/water 3x faster than jogging but you don't move 3x faster. If you want to conserve food/water you need to slow down. It will take longer but you'll be able to go farther.
  11. People see opportunist and read it the wrong way. Basically what I'm saying is that I used to be 'good', did my best to help anyone who needed it. Now after being taken advantage of and beaten on several occasions just for wanting to help, he's now focused on himself. Being an opportunist does not mean I rob people. If I was starving and I needed food, maybe. But it hasn't come to that yet. If I see a group of people and they don't see me I take the opportunity to spy on them. If I see a group and they see me but there is a good distance between us I take the opportunity to get the hell out of there. I don't think my character would ever be malicious for any reason. But I will do whatever is necessary to survive and take any opportunity that crosses my path to ensure my survival.
  12. You die a hero or live long enough to become a villain. My character started out helpful, but now is a cautious opportunist.
  13. A strategy for dealing with Z's in town I've learned is to make a b-line for those little shack shops that have the ladder access to the roof. Make sure you close the door before you climb up. Great place to make a stand and shoot over the side. Just don't run out of ammo. Now if you have no ammo and are feeling lucky you can also try the same tactic but instead leave the door open so they all bunch up inside. Then look over the edge and close the door from the roof, locking them in (provided they don't clip through, that's where the luck part comes in) I haven't tested this strategy with the new zombies, but it was always my go-to move when I was getting overwhelmed or needed to bandage.

    It Just Took Me An Hour To Walk To The Store...

    As a doctor I'm selective about approaching people/groups on my own. If it's a group and they haven't seen me I tend to sneak up close enough that I can hear them talk for a bit before I decide to show myself. If it's a solitary person I make sure my gun is out but not raised. If I actually decide to interact with whomever I come across I usually identify myself as a doctor and offer any medical assistance they may require. If they don't need any help then I ask them where they are coming from, where they are headed and if they know of any groups. After that I wish them safe travels and head on my way, always keeping an eye out that they don't double back on me. If at any time things feels sketchy I cut and run. Just as I expect I would IRL. I'm not avoiding RP I'm avoiding risk. As any sane individual with an ounce of common sense should do.
  15. Take the magnum while looking for clips for the 1911, once you have 2 clips for the 1911 then start looking for the gun itself. One you have the 1911 you can trade/give/drop the magnum.
