*Bellum RP, *
a semi-realistic war-based roleplaying community.
***Getting sick of joining a cool sounding server, eg. Desert Warfare or something, only to find it’s either empty, or full of people who are just killing each other mindlessly without actually roleplaying?
Who are we?
**Essentially, we’re a small community that wants to roleplay as a military group (or groups in the future). The founders are mature and serious people, yet leeway enough to allow you to roleplay how you want.
**So what do you guys do?
**At the moment the plan is to set up a military style hierarchy, where new players start at a Recruit level. From there they will receive a basic training in multiple areas of field combat and regime. We call this Boot Camp. Basically you’ll be trained in how to engage in combat situations, operate different types of equipment, parachute, and other electives such as, Combat Support, Marksmanship and Stealth. After basic training you will be required to pass a short, easy trial which tests you on what you’ve learnt in Boot Camp.
After this you’ll be promoted to Private, and will be able to be involved in combat situations. From here your skills and resilience in combat will help you be promoted to new ranks, which increases your control over the Communities lower rank, and gives you access to new toys.
**What are these Combat Situations?
**Well combat situations can be either PVE or PVP. Sometimes we’ll have quite a large game against lots of NPC players, which will be from custom packs, so you don’t need to fear having to kill endless hordes of Combine Soldiers with SMG’s. Other situations could be against other Player groups, in a test of skill and accuracy. Or simply to make the situation a lot more realistic and interesting.
**Are you guys just DM’ing faggots who’ll spend all day just running around shooting each other, or do you actually want to do some roleplay?
**Roleplay is essential to this community. It wont be spawning and shooting combine. There will be stories to each situation, and main and secondary goals, such as protecting a package or getting a bombing run organized. People who will constantly Deathmatch, or do not attempt to roleplay in the combat situations will risk a rather extensive ban.
Sounds good, what type of script will you run?
At the moment, we’re going to run CakeScript for it’s flexibility, yet stern approach. But anything could happen at this point so we’re open to the communities ideas on this subject.
You said there was PVP involved, what if this community is always going to be unique?
Because Bellum is still very new and our community is very small, at the moment PVP matches will be played by squads in the community. We’re also planning on dividing in a Russian and American division if the member count grows.
What type of members are you looking for?
Discarding the stereotype of 12 year old’s, people of any age that have a mature attitude towards roleplaying yet is flexible enough to accept that we’re not going to be roleplaying all the time. Combat situations will have to be set up, and we want people that are patient enough to not exploit the tempting situations you’re given. We don’t want to see people spawning ammo or weapons, or using spawning props for cover, or to prop block.
Where are you in the development stage?
I posted the Militant RP Thread in the Server Advertisement (don’t ask why) thread yesterday while I was at work. Our community has grown to three members. We have a 30- and 40-slot server at our disposal. One will be used for Boot Camp and Private Training, the other will be used for Combat Situations. Both servers will be locked and passwords given to those who apply.
How do I apply?

This still sounds like it’ll be a deathmatching mingefest.
If you read through this thread properly you’d see that we will not tolerating minging, deathmatching or dicking around in general. There’s hundreds of other servers you can do that on and not be banned.
