Posted this on the Steam Group in the announcements as well but I'm out for a while due to a busted Motherboard. Amontillado and Assassinator are in charge until I get back. I will have internet on my sister's computer so if things start going to hell PM me and I'll deal with it as best I can.
-Paintcheck


((Alright so I've been noticing a huge lack in bandit activity recently which I think is partially due to a lack of organization and a lack of decent equipment to arm the bandits with so they can actually survive trying to rob someone. Figured I'd try and start one up))

To join this faction bandit flags would be nice to have (ie you should have donated) but they are not necessary. I will not be giving anyone flags for joining.

Faction Name: Birds of Prey
IC Name: Sergei "Hawk" Fedorov
Purpose: To get a well-organized and decently equipped bandit force operating again. I will supply them with Hawk's extensive finances and resources (him being the bandit faction trader and all). After we get some recruits I hope to get the slaving ring operating again as well. Right now though we'll just focus on building strength.

((I'll worry about ranks and shit later once I actually manage to recruit some people. Same with faction relations and shit.))

Backstory:
After several years in the Zone as a S.T.A.L.K.E.R, (as well as a year in a Ukranian prison for being captured S.T.A.L.K.I.N.G), Hawk decided there was more money to be had trading than actually looking for artifacts. Safer too. Using contacts outside the country to smuggle in Russian military surplus, Hawk was able to start a small trading post. Operating away from bars and other "bastions of civilization" (or what passed for civilization in the Zone), Hawk quickly developed a roaring trade with bandits and other individuals who would be shot/executed/imprisoned/tortured/otherwise inconvenienced by the factions that controlled the bars and outposts. The bandits in turn helped fund Hawk's shop, bringing NATO weapons, artifacts, alcohol, and drugs to the table in exchange for guns and load bearing gear.

After a while, once Hawk had enough capital to fund some real muscle, he hired outside mercs and experienced bandits to captured S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs to sell as forced labor in the numerous projects the factions had to complete in the Zone. The slaving business was a huge success at first, earning Hawk over 250,000 rubles in profit. However, with increased military patrols and more and more smugglers bringing better gear into the Zone, many of the bandits and slavers that worked for Hawk were killed. Hawk's income decreased drastically. There was no one left who would even try to rob others, even in exchange for free guns and even fewer who would agree to slave. Hawk realized his sporadic attempts at enticing wandering S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs and small time bandits into joining his crew wouldn't cut it. He needed to organize...

Alright boys there's only a few rules here because I figure you're all either smart enough to operate without fucking anything up too bad or you're all too stupid to live without more guidance and will shortly die anyway. The penalty for breaking any of these will be severe and may include death, mauling, amputation, beating, death, burning, death, shooting, death, and/or slavery.

IC Rules:
1. Thou shalt not steal from fellow members of the Birds of Prey.
2. Thou shalt not resell equipment Hawk has given to you/sold to you near cost for a profit to other traders or S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs.
3. Thou shalt not take slaves of or rob S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs coming to trade at the camp or too close to camp. It's bad for business if someone comes wanting to buy a slave/sell some equipment and gets it stolen from him.

((Alright I'm going to try something a little different to this slave business. Players taht have been captured and agree to RP as a slave for a bit will be listed here. Due to timezones/activity it might be hard to get slaves/masters together at the same time so the first few transactions will likely be "RP-paying-me" money and both parties can figure it out on their own. If it doesn't work then it doesn't work and I'll stop trying. Interested buyers can PM or SF me if they want to "buy" and hopefully we can pair people up. I'll also announce specials I might be having should I ever get active enough to do that))

BANDIT TRADING SPECIALS/CURRENT SLAVES AVAILABLE


Posted on the front of the Hideout is a beat up bulletin board. On it are several yellowing pages and a few recent-looking laminated sheets. One of the sheets is labeled Current Inventory. On it are the names of slaves for sale.

Current Inventory

There are a few names, but they are crossed out

Weapons/Gear Specials:
-Buy any rifle, get a free Makarov
-2 For 1 Sale on Medkits
-Bandit Jackets AT COST for BoP members
-An 94s AT COST for BoP members

OOC Rules:

1. This is an RP faction first. I hope both the bandits in this group and the people we rob will realize that and not be so petty as to do stupid shit for the "E moniez". If you rob someone and they want to RP giving you money or an artifact they may not actually possess, that's fine with me. This is more about RP than anything else. That being said if people do stupid shit to get out of being robbed (ie kill themselves, suicidally charge like 5 people just so they die without having to RP/pay up) then I will start PKing people.

2. Spread out your targets. Do not rob the same loner who is brand new to the server 5 times in 20 minutes. That's not fun for him.

3. Do not take everything the target has. This is about RP not about E rubles like I said before. If you find someone willing to go along with the RP then settle for whatever they give you. Don't take personal weapons or suits unless the player consents or the weapon spawns from a flag (ie feel free to steal AK74s from the milifags because they respawn with them).

Any questions, suggestions, or criticism is appreciated! Please SF me or PM me though so the thread doesn't get uber cluttered as I plan to recruit in here.

Current Roster (Will get IC names once I wake up a little more and remember them lol):
Paintcheck - Hawk
Assassinator - Asadel Rasheed
Amontillado - Senka Vadari
Sniper 3124 - Raven
Poxkillard - Austin Creed
Mangoman
KillSlim - Scotch

Protected Persons List (People We Don't Touch):
Cole Train's Exo character (Alphones something)
--To get added to this list, appease me.

You are right, anyone who has played the Stalker games knows that the game is not complete until you meet the bandits. They are the one faction that doesn't care about what happens in the zone, just about what happens to them. Like a Anarchy.

Alright this has started out pretty successfully. Had a couple takes today for...lots of rubles and Amontillado has been pulling down like 5-10k in gear a day. Looks like we're off to a good start at reviving the bandits.

Bandits shouldn't get AN-94's.

I'm pretty sure we can use whatever we steal. Actually I'm positive we can use whatever we steal seeing as I run the group and see no need to impose inane weapon restrictions that make no sense. You steal it you can use it. (Obviously no Exos or FN2000s)

AN94s are more complicated than AK74s true but honestly anyone with half a brain could figure it out. Guns aren't like "zomg quantum physics". I'll thank you to stop acting like itsjustguy and complaining about other people's FORP/STALKER RP things. Thank you.

And like I said in the first post

DO NOT CLUTTER THIS THREAD. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM SF OR PM ME HERE. THIS IS FOR BoP MEMBERS AND THOSE EXPRESSING INTEREST IN JOINING BoP ONLY.

Thank you.

I'd love to meet up and RP on my bandit character, I'd love to join. (I have experienced donators' status, getting Veteran at Christmas.)

Hey. I just joined. Thanks for the invite.

Good to have you? I'm going to need to get a head count of who's still in this once I get home and get GMod reinstalled on my now-working computer. If Amontillado or Assassinator could either make an announcement in the SF Group or PM me or something about what's been going on while I've been out for 2 weeks I'd appreciate it. THis will be interesting to do after the wipe because none of us will have any guns.

paint i posted some stuff on the group about the new members. Also posted a anouncement about us trying to go offical. Paint you dont know how much the Birds have grown.



Paintcheck

Reply #21 on: 02-01-2010
No I don't and that worries me a little bit. We can't allow everyone to join on the spot or we'll have what happened last time the server restarted: 30000 bandits stealing from like 4 STALKERs. I haven't heard any complaints about this so you must be doing a good job but still, try not to recruit too many people.
