It always bothered me how I could find 50 pistols and one mag to go with it. Who gets a pistol without a mag?
I can't even find pistols mate, the only one I'v found in twelve hours has been an engraved 1911, and a black derringer in a fire station.
I played with a CDF guy the other day, he 'saved my life.', so my character feels in debt to him and perhaps even the CDF remnants. Truly, this community is beautiful, I'm extremely excited my application was accepted.
Eh, I was playing with a friend who is CDF and he said we needed to clear any abandoned caches at military bases, so we traveled for literally three hours and we found one magazine, the only ammunition I found was .357 or .45 ACP. Maybe it's just me, but the loot spawns for magazines and ammo suck pretty bad at the moment. I'm an avid firearms enthusiasts and owner, own several weapons, and I always make sure there's a loaded magazine in my AR-15's or any of my pistols. I get that weapons should be hard to come by, but with the magazines? Eh.. The one magazine I managed to find belonged to infamous and rare MP5-K that usually only spawns at heli crash sites.
I just don't understand why someone would literally take the time trying to get white-listed, then just KoS, it baffles me they would waste their time like that. I mean, it's practically taking candy from a baby in a sense, you see someone and they expect you to engage them verbally, then "Bam." Screen goes black. No warning, nothing, I suppose that's what happens when CoD kiddies try playing other games.
I don't think anyone is thinking realistically when you say "Cannibals wouldn't group together." Humans are animals in their basic nature, they CAN, and WILL do anything to survive when put in the correct situation, it's just a human instinct to the bare bone. If that means banding together to form an intimidating, large party of people, then that is what they will do. You have a family, or a group of friends, you decide to band together in order to survive the apocalypse, you don't know how, or when it began to happen, you just one day accidentally killed someone, your stomach is in pain, your skin is slowly becoming just bone.
We could even cite history for that matter, the beginning of America in fact. "The Donner Party (sometimes called the Donner-Reed Party) was a group of American pioneer migrants who set out for California in a wagon train. Delayed by a series of mishaps, they spent the winter of 1846–47 snowbound in the Sierra Nevadas. Some of the migrants resorted to cannibalism to survive, eating those who had succumbed to starvation and sickness."
What people don't realize is that food diminishes VERY quickly. Years back, when tornado's completely wiped the power grid in Alabama, we were out of power for weeks, if not months, with little water, all of our food was rendered inedible because we use freezers and other forms to keep food fresh. Despite having a pantry of canned goods, it was quickly eaten. If not for relief efforts bringing in thousands of pounds of food and distributing it, people would have probably ended up hurting each other just to feed themselves or their families.
Food was taken from the supermarkets and emptied in the matter of days, if not hours. Canned goods? Gone. Cereals and other things of that sort? Gone. Bottled water? Gone. The fact is, food would not be plentiful in Chernarus, the only guaranteed way of food would be vegetable and fruit farms, and even that would only last for a time.
People underestimate how quickly food actually depletes, I've witnessed it first hand. And this was only from a natural disaster, could you even imagine if an infection like this actually spread? If a man is brought to desperation, do you think he is going to sit and watch his family slowly, painfully die from starvation? Or would he kill for survival, be it even a human being?
It makes perfect sense for that to be a cannibal group or two, the only problem is, it is, and will be prone for bad role-play seeing as they would literally have to kill in order to play their role, which in itself is a no-go.
A scene from the the movie 'The Road', an adapted film from the novel bearing the same name. The un-named father, with his son, happen across a very large group of bandit cannibals.

The un-named father and son happen across a large house, they believe there may be food or supplies in the house, unbeknownst to them, a group of cannibals has moved in, and they return shortly after they discover what acts are happening within the house's walls.
Jeremiah Young was born on January 1, 1985, in Alta, Utah, a small town that only consists of an estimated four hundred people. Growing up, Jeremiah was home-schooled, although through this method he could get more attention towards his education, he still had a hard pressed time with mathematics, some subjects of science such as chemistry.
During his free time, he often found himself taking his grandfathers bolt action rifle, and heading into the snow pelted mountain forests of his home, he often hunted moose, deer, beaver, and other small game, it was either hunt, or go hungry.
Jeremiah's parents were religious, following Mormonism, the Latter Day Saint movement. Through the small church that resided in Alta, he met a young woman by the name of Elizabeth Bell, often people said she was like a cactus flower, pretty to look at, but there was just no use getting close to her. Elizabeth, although attending services and practicing the religion, often did not actually follow the religion strictly like most.
Elizabeth was a troubled individual, her mother and father were distant, and her siblings had moved when she was young. People that knew her mother said it was her own doing that caused them to leave their home state. Her brother, Thomas Bell, had left long ago to join the United States Military, and her sister, Taylor Bell, had found someone in the Air Force, and married him, she resided in Alaska. Elizabeth, due to her mother, often thought that her parents simply didn't care for her, and her father, often belittled her, this led to her being distant to Jeremiah as well, although he loved her with all his heart, not even he could fix what had broken her.
After graduating in 1997, he married Elizabeth. Jeremiah decided to attend Salt Lake City Community College, and majored in English, hoping to later be a teacher. October 17, 2004, it was late at night, and the roads were wet, and for some reason, Elizabeth had been out late, Jeremiah had an argument with her on the phone, when she lost control of her vehicle, colliding with a tree, she died on impact, and he fell into deep depression, trying to turn to his religion for answers, although he began questioning his life. After finishing his battle with his inner demons, on December 11th, 2009, Jeremiah was sent on a religious mission to Chernarus, the relief effort would allow them to help rebuild some areas of the country, and try to spread their religion. He decided to stay to further help the relief effort, but would find himself trapped as a strange infection swept through the landscape.
Seeing the aftermath, it tortured Jeremiah, often seeing the state of the people succumb to the evils of murder, pillaging, and cannibalism, these horrors haunt him, and he suffers from flashes of PTSD after having to kill several of the infected individuals in self defense, as well as a person who attacked him with an axe.
He believes that the infection is God's way of punishing the world, and that it's the religious apocalypse, believing that the infected are demons. The aftermath has some what hardened Jeremiah, and he often quotes areas of the Word that deal with retribution, he sees thieves as nothing but unwanted filth, and often states "I don't enjoy killing, but when done righteously, it's just a chore, like any other."

What does everyone think? I know there are some religious characters around here but I'm not sure if anyone had a missionary from another country. Any criticism is wanted.
Hello, all! I am new to this community, and fairly excited to start role-playing with you all! I've dropped in the team-speak a few times to try and meet a few, and you all seem very friendly, I truly can not wait to meet some of you in game and begin making wonderful stories!
I'm still busy trying to decide exactly who I want my character to be, although, I am certain it hasn't been done before, the character I had in mind may just need to wait until Standalone has air vehicles in order to complete his story, I already have a rough line of where I want him to start, and how I want his story to end, all we would need is to fill in the parts from the beginning to the end, and hope that he escapes this hellish landscape he's been trapped in!
Truly can not wait, and I hope you all enjoy the time we have if we ever meet in the nightmare world of Chernarus!
Hm, even though I am waiting for my white-list, I can see why someone would dislike this, on one hand, it enhances immersion, on the other hand.. Well, I like looking at my character, plus, that allows for some good screen shots in my opinion.
