    Probably depends what happens with regards to what just happened. I'd love to be able to host this properly at some point, without the interference.

    The Red Letter {Strict Recruitment}

    I wasn't there, but to my knowledge that was a misunderstanding and we apologised IC. There's always been a rule in these fights that you keep all beef outside of the event, I said this plenty of times. You wanna start shit with us? Don't do it when we have out event. You can settle stuff in the ring with us or you can wait patiently, but don't fuck up the event. Asking for the ammo in compensation for shooting us the day before is the most utter bullshit thing I've ever heard. They won the firefight, surely that's enough. Initiate on us next week if they so fucking desire.

  4. Hey guys, So people find that my microphone is quiet in game, and unless I raise my voice a lot it's not really an acceptable level. My volume is fine, if anything too loud in teamspeak and stuff, just seems to be DayZ. I've got my microphone boosted to the max in windows, max in steam and VOIP is also on max in the DayZ settings. You guys got any solutions for me? Thanks a lot

    @N-Tox Does Mr. Macarno want to settle his beef sans-rap?
  6. I've reinstalled it since I've had the problem, but no harm trying again I guess.
  7. My microphone is that loud out of DayZ that I have to set my recording software to record it at 15% to be level with other people in DayZ, otherwise it's deafening.

    It's Sergei the police officer and that guy from Brooklyn, was it Johnny or something? Videos on the way soon-ish.
  10. Great hostile encounter with @Felix Corten, thanks for the great hostage RP, it was really fun! Cheers to our child warrior @Methias too. Also @Jack Rees-Mountbatten, @Sandy and @Spanners.
  11. Josef was born in a town just north of South Zagoria, where the crime rate was high and officials were either corrupt or ineffective. He involved himself with people involved with drugs, theft and other such crimes. He began selling drugs from a small age, using his street smarts he managed to create quite a profitable business, moving from selling for others to dominating the market by himself. He forced other dealers to give up their business, one way or another. Eventually, he controlled the whole market in both the town in which he was born and even surrounding towns. Having come from humble beginnings he had a vision of what to do with his money. With no competition to worry about, he began using his funds to help change the town that he was living in, moulding it to whatever he wanted. With all police paid off, and the town being irrelevant the police presence in the city was small. He would pay people to be private security to reduce the crime rate, he would use his money to fund parks and other local utilities. The only crime allowed in the town was his own drug business, to the point where it was impossible for anybody else to think about moving in. He did all this because he felt like he had a loyalty to his country, and to his origins. He cared not for any officials, but did care for the people who made him who he was. Eventually it got to the point where the whole town was run by Josef and any government steered well clear of the town. This was all up until the infection hit, and many of the people he cared for were lost. Be under no illusions, Josef is not a great man. He has an idea of how he wants things, and how to get through anyone that stands in his way.

  15. @The Traveler @Loscham I've had some not so good experiences in Stary lately but your characters were perfect, loved the hat slam so much. Wish I could have rolled around with you guys for longer.

  17. The problem is so many people aren't willing to have an end for their character. This ruins the whole idea of hostile RP because you can have beef with them, have a story arc or whatever and then find them and kill them. Okay, they don't perma because they wanted more so you do the process again later on, all in the name of RP. But there's only so many times you can capture someone and kill them and they keep coming back. In the end it makes you and your squad look like a joke if you keep trying to put a bullet in someone's head and it keeps hitting their shoulder. Its not that hard to not die either. If you value your characters life (which you should) so much then play more cautiously. I walked around a lot solo on a character who was the leader of one of the most hated groups at the time, and I only ever died once which wasn't the result of a rule break and that was to hypothermia (I know I'm shit). People are wandering around like gods, making infinite enemies both on radio and IC and never ever suffering repercussions for it. There red has to be a base level that everyone can agree on to an extent, of which once you've surpassed then your character is dead. Otherwise, when you have people who are willing to perma and others who really are not it screws with how these characters interact with each other and foils the RP.
  18. This so much. Hostile RP nowadays always involves initiating and then either a gun fight or //permission to perm/execute. It's just vapid. There should be no reason why people can't have standoffs in the street, with high amounts of tension that don't lead to either of those things and just yield solid RP. When gun fights/executions become over done the whole RP is watered down to the point where deaths and executions are irrelevant. On top of this people now had hard ons for permaing people. When executions and fights are this frequent it gets to the point where nobody wants to give permission to PK. People are walking round, wanted by lots of people and constantly getting killed and they keep on coming back over and over again, basically invulnerable. This is DayZ, it's not some boy scout game where people just huddle round campfires and nothing ever happens. People should be seriously scared and concerned for their characters' lives, which isn't the case at the minute. There are groups running round which just want to firefight etc. and that just leads to repeated character deaths and make no sense. I always have the attitude that if I get captured and I get good enough RP I'll PK if I get executed, whether they ask for perms. Obviously on some characters I want them to have gotten to a certain point in their objectives/development before I lay them to rest but I'm also always cautious about getting captured. One night I'd just made a new character and within a couple of hours I'd been captured and was eaten by a cannibal (PK). I don't expect everyone to be so open to offing their characters but there has to be a willingness to allow stories to develop (both yours and other peoples'), and in DayZ this usually happens with deaths. At the minute you have people who are wanted and they're running round, getting captured and just allowing anyone to execute them for "RP". But it's not RP, there's only so many times you can claim to have survived getting shot in the head. I understand you put time in to your characters but that's what makes the whole experience so fleshed out, being able to kill people who have stories. tl;dr stop trying to kill people so much, but sometimes be willing to PK in the name of RP. edits: didn't realise this thread was half a week old, my b

    Character Name: Osbert Oakley Character Age: 30 Does your character have any physical shortcomings? He wears glasses. Does your character have a mental disability? No mental disability but people think he's crazy since he believes some conspiracy theories and doesn't trust the government. Does your character have a specific disease? (Diabetes etc.) No. Does your character have any phobia? Fear of being watched and his privacy being invaded. Does your character have a love interest? n/a Does your character have any addictions? n/a Does your character do any drugs? Drinks in private when he can let his guard down and is open-minded to other things. Is your character overweight? No. Would you like your messages to be strictly serious or would you like a comic relief comment from time to time? Both are fine. Anything else that we might have missed that you'd like to experience in game? He has a deep-rooted mistrust of government officials/anything related to government. He is quite solitary but talks to people recently since he's been hidden away for so long. He doesn't give away personal details or much that anyone can trace back to him, he goes by a nickname with no one really knowing his real name.
  20. I'm sure you probably know this being on the events team and all, but I wouldn't be too disheartened if the event gets not much traction. Rory's fishing event only had two people sign up on the forums but there were at least 6 competitors and about 20 people in total there. I'll attend any event if I'm online that night and I'm sure that there are a lot of people like me. I think the calendar is a great addition, people who don't always browse every thread on the forums will see the events straight away from the home page. I'd say get an idea for an event and make a date for it in about a weeks time and just go with it, see how many people show up. There are some really good ideas in this event, but the events don't need always need to involve shooting people, they can be purely RP events. Take the fishing event for example!

    The server definitely needs more Chernarussians, I like this. Do you role exclusively with Chernarussians?
