Chiefly being a player on a DayZ RP server leaves a lot to be desired in the way of control. As a player you can mould an entire character, deeply woven with backstory and life, but you are still stunted by restrictions the server may have. This is something we battled with constantly on various servers, not just one. We believed that many of the servers we played on were “totalitarian” in the way things were ran. There was no room for player engagement in how the server operated and players had no say in potential changes for the server. Often, these servers would start out with a predetermined idea and rule-set that would remain static for it’s entire lifespan. We feel this is a stagnant and stale way of proceeding, for everyone involved. Quarantined RP aims to adapt and modify the player experience based on our own ideas, and yours.
To begin with, Quarantined RP will have Quarantine zones that will rotate every three months in which PvP is strictly permitted and there is no limit to player freedom, role-play, and brutality. We’ve employed this because of the dryness of simply having one northern military base as a “hotspot” for PvP interactions. This is also relevant to our server lore in which the infection is airborne. The changing winds will make certain cities a hot-zone, and other cities safe to breath in. Gas mask usage is also HEAVILY enforced in these areas to add to your overall experience.
Leave your mark on the world. In-server lore is another important facet of servers we felt was criminally underused. DayZ is beautiful because of it’s ambiguity; it provides players the freedom to speculate upon different stories of the apocalypse and muse as much as they like on the cause of the outbreak. There is no wrong answer. With this in mind, Lore is a crucial part of our server. The game world will be directly affected by it and there will be continual posts within our own “encyclopaedia” of sorts which will contain, history, backstory and accounts from imagined characters. If players gain a certain level of notoriety within the server and are talked about both in character, and OOC, then they will receive a special entry within our “book” in which their character will receive a background containing information, history, achievements (whether those achievements are good or evil.) Players can read upon these entries before entering the world and gain a scope for the kind of people they’ll meet wandering Chernarus.
