Hello all,

We're considering adding a dedicated 50 player role-play server to our hive. It'll be white-listed but available to everyone to join once they've registered on the website and confirmed they have read the rules. 

We will follow similar rules to other established role-play servers although we're looking to make things a little more fun and slightly less restrictive than other servers. 

We will however still have the basic core rules of an RP server as follows:
  • Killing another player must always be justified by roleplayed actions. You must always have a genuine reason to initiate on another player.
  • Trolling, out of character chatter, and bad RP will not be tolerated.
  • Ghosting, Combat logging and any exploiting or cheating is forbidden.
  • You must value your characters life.

We will need to recruit a few more people to our team to decide upon the lore and fine tune the server rules.

If you're interested in getting in involved, then please reply to this thread.

Hi, thats great. We're looking to increase the community size on the website a lot before we launch it as an Rp server with no players isn't any fun. This gives us time to fine tune the rules and lore. What kind of role are you interested in?

I'm up for anything really. Lore building, rules refining, admining. I've never really participated in something like this before, but I generally like the idea and want to support it. Giving the game a little more depth than just PvE or PvP is definitely worthwhile. I can easily see defining factions and territory. Pre-planned territorial fights or bare knuckle duels to settle disputes and challenges. And of course some kind of neutral ground trading post with defined barter rates for goods so the economy is a bit more robust.

You have some good ideas there. Although a key thing with any rules is that we have the ability to enforce them, as well as them being fair and making the server a fun place to be.

I would not want to be as restrictive as other Rp servers, and I like the idea of faction territories. It was something I've considered before.

The rules don't have to be super detailed and a lot of stuff can be left to arbitration. Granted, that leaves quite a bit of room for IRL drama, but gives the most flexibility. A framework or set of guidelines goes a long way without having to explicit set forth a ruleset.

It could be as simple as: 
"By joining us, you agree to do three things:

1. Respect the theme. You are role playing in a post zombie apocalypse period where people are rebuilding civilization one camp at a time. You're welcome to play the lone wolf and interact with any factions, but if you don't respect their territory, don't be surprised if they refuse you entry. All in all, it makes way more sense to join a faction and help your faction achieve its goals.
2. Value your life. Bloodshed should always be a last resort. If you are caught trespassing, looting, harvesting, etc. in someone else's territory there will be consequences but the end result should be that you live. If you run, you forfeit the right to live. That same courtesy must be applied to others.
3. Play within boundaries defined."

If we consider doing factions/territory/etc we will need to setup and run something that keeps track of it all. A simple scoreboard maybe that lists controlled cities/areas and pending/current events such as territory disputes. A wiki might be just enough.

Then we can evolve whatever meta gaming we need to facilitate faction-to-faction interaction, what should be considered neutral territory, etc.

I've just bought DayZ and have been playing it with my friend for hours on end. We were wondering if we would be able to be whitelisted onto your server to RP and interact with other friendly members of your community.

Hope to hear from you soon.

An RP server would interest me greatly (And maybe my friends as well when dayz is 100% done) as I have very little interest in shooting people and rather be a medic/lone trader, with an outpost people can visit. Sadly, without a RP rule set, I cant really do this. I would just get KOSed so easily (as i don't really carry guns) and my outpost would be raided or stolen. So for now I will just RP with my self on the donor server and wait to see what happened.

Hope you get enough donations to keep your project going
