this dude fuckin name was alucard
hatustries circa 2011-ish?? it was the birth of the idea of clarissa donaghy and she was awful and i didnt know how rp worked on gmod so i was kind of a minge
the owner ended up interrogating her and shot her in the foot twice, stomach once, and finally a neck-shot bc he was edgy as shit.
she should've stayed dead.
I used to troll on Homestuck chatrooms and play a lot of darkrp. One day tnb had like 70 people on and I joined it and hit /votemayor. Lawrence painstakingly explained that this is Advanced playing pretend. 2015 sucked.
I'm pretty sure TnB was the first server I went on but I didn't know much about RP at the time, the things I specifically remember was finding two rebels with a helmet less recruit when those were a thing and they both had guns aimed at him. I told them I was a rebel since I had a pipe script and mask from someone I met in outlands. I lost the pipe after throwing it at a scanner and it fell down into a pit.
First dose of RP was Halo 3 then GTA IV on the 360. Sometimes we'd literally give NPCs names and interact with them as if they understood what was going on.
From there I found homestuck and RP'd that HEAVILY from tumblr pms,Skype group chats and dedicated websites full of different chatrooms. This soon led me to GMOD as there were small cliques that RPd homestuck on gmod with some actually accurate player models.
I branched out, tried some misc RP servers(F:NV,WW2,Metro) I settled down in a community that was essentially glorified base wars and met @Nat Attack then one night bored off our asses we joined TnB.
And now I hang around this hell hole.
Joined TnB because of the name in 06 or 07. Got confused and left. Tried again the next day on Mine-Dog, where I RPed myself and abused the loan system to make 40k, which I hired people to launder.
My next character was named Phil Razor and he helped my other one legitimize the money I was making. He was the intermediary between me and the people laundering.
Eventually I worked out the point of RP and made my first real character, now known as Bishop.
I'm using those chaotic old days of RP to illustrate the confusion and haphazard nature of early Combine occupation, cherry picking plot points to make a cohesive narrative that doesn't suffer too much from Old Character Syndrome... but the stuff like mowing down Overwatch squads with a PPSh had to be toned down a little.
Just a little.
i joined a base wars server once and it was actually fun
Started out on some Combine control server, was never taught how to properly Roleplay outside of how to emote properly. Got bored of that, and then I found TnB.
Came into TnB not knowing what the fuck I was doing, so I made some old guy who carried a sword cane (mistake number one), was part of some illuminati-esque secret society that was hell bent on killing one of Scone's character (mistake number two). Poor ol Augustus got his head blow off, and then I proceeded to go make two cookie cutter characters that were just like him, but without the sword cane (Mistake number three). Then had the last one died from a tumor in his brain.
Took a long break to learn how to RP better, and then came back to TnB. Some claim I've gotten better. Some claim that I'm insane. But one thing has yet to change.
I STILL PLAY OLD WHITE GUYS
server in question
I actually joined before patriot. I got on once, made a forum account, then never played again for like a year.
Some shitty clockwork server. Only things I could say help figure out what one it was was that all ground units wore trench coats and had different colored mask portholes and varying amounts of suit LEDs depending on their rank and squad. (and i think the squads were biased on specialty, so like all the medics were in a squad, all the engineers in one, and so on.)
stopped playing after i let my character get involved with some terrorist shit, and by terrorist shit i mean leading a few units to a back alley so that a fella could launch a grenade at them. safe to say that was a PK.
got on with a friend started a riot and mugged a cop for a beanbag shotty, then we ran to canals and an admin spawned cop npcs and we left i think? i got on a few weeks later and went to coast where @Pew gave me a broken mp7 for the shotgun
e; in tandem to the thread though
italy came from the iteration before this one and persisted through it and emerge in this one, which admittedly might not sound like much, but he was one of the five survivors from Operation Arctic Fire/Fox (whatever the name was)
pictured: italy (post hl2rp) acella appleton (post hl2rp, now deceased) and richard barnes (post hl2rp, currently mia)
i'll be honest and say that whatever was happening with toasts character is entirely hazy, but im pretty sure his character walked off after we threw him out of the bunker
ending with this iteration, this picture was shortly before Italy, Hothead, Crenshaw, Rooster, Cassandra Grey, Lily Conden, Isaac and later Quinn among other characters names that I forget
I remember fuckin around on hl2rp back in 2009. Earliest memories were making a restaurant in the pizza place thing on rp_city 18. The canals were a magical place back then.
I played hl2rp for two weeks before I tried the superior TRP on August 31st 2009. They were on gm_atomic the day I joined. I remember going through one of the doors and ending up at the gas station, where I met Fal0x's old character.
Good memories. Comforting to reminisce on the simpler times.
This map looks dope. Don't suppose you remember what it is?
Pretty sure thats a Brotherhood Bunker event map made by Rowtree using segments from mission improbable the mod.
saw this thread
made a character named layne or some shit
gordy harmony or somebody had this mobster/marriage broker character that hooked my character up with some irish chick
irish mail order wife was taken into the nexus so layne tried to punch his way into the nexus to FIND WIFE
my first characters were made while i was basically going through puberty so there was some Weird Shit i did
i think my shameful memories of that are why im so vanilla now
i spent a couple hours downloading 5gb packs trying to get my game to stop looking like an lsd trip
never found out how to fix it and i gave up for about a year
played spire and made a generic wastelander that few people remember and should not remember, but to summarise how he was i applied to have night vision eyes
met a few people like nec and owain
after that died i hopped around for abit, got permabanned by steve for harassing bishop
years later i appealed and got unbanned and now im here
as unpopular as ever and yearning for death
Joined Infusion Gaming around 7 years ago. Made a character, I got the basics of it but tried to punch a mutant creature that was being rped. Was lucky enough to have someone patient enough to explain what combat rp was and what rp was in general. Spent awhile fucking around there, made a new character that was my first 'real' character, a vault doctor who got expelled when the Outcasts took over the vault. RP'd him for awhile till I got bored and left.
I think my first foray into tnb was around the time I made this account, I rp'd for a little while and then left because I had no clue what I was doing and Tacoscript confused me. Spent most of my time on fallout rps and random HL2RPs. I dropped in on TnB every so often but I didn't get on the forums much, just sort of went with the flow. Until roughly two years ago when I rejoined tnb and played here basically all the time.
Still not sure if it was a good decision or not, but hey, it worked out.
I remember just being told to stand guard while you talked to Scone, ready to ice you on command. Good times.
Which time was that???
i already talked about my first hl2rp experience but I might as well talk about my first TnB experience
First came on when a certain bird (@Nerdbird ) exposed me to this hellserver. made my first character and named him Kyle Watson, some of y'all may have seen him around idk. Dove in head first to some roleplay involving a character called Dawn Patterson and B block on i17. Ended up being held at knifepoint and thrown into the sewers. Shortly after that encounter I made a new character named Borya "Benny" Yolklov and wrote him to be a almost stereotypical Russian strongman with a soft spot so I could goof about and learn the ropes on while I re-wrote Watson's entire character and backstory.
Been memeing it up ever since
But real shit shoutout to nerdbird for showing me TnB, she's the best
Don't remember when exactly, years ago. It was when Gaff went by Joey instead and it was at tnb_coast at the lighthouse.
Wasn't told any details or anything, just something like 'Stand here and keep an eye on things.'
ipod's great i don't regret showing him tnb
and fix your spelling mistakes you dingus
i hopped on the server and made a character called 'gordon frohman'
i got banned for an hour and i complained but still came back after a week or so. i managed to become a cringe god really fast but i like to think that ive grown up a tiny bit since then
I joined in 2008 after being sick in bed for literally 2 weeks because I couldn't down more than three crackers at a time. Boredom is one hell of a thing, especially when your only game at the time was Gmod.
Darkrp was getting stale after a week and then I stumbled upon the same face punch thread @blooregardo found and joined TnB making some terrible Irish character with some stereotypical name. I brought my brother into this shit show as well.
After like a week I made a proper character (Will Knight) and eventually got caught up with Dave, poo lord, dr.jake and tisen. @Dark_Knight brought me into the canals after I got caught up in some s2k and I finally learned that shotcop wasn't the only form of rebel rp. (In my defense most of the decent rebel to only happened behind a passworded server that near impossible to get on if you didn't know anyone).
Those were the days. Donator guns being refunded after every shotcop. Swathes of poorly optimized donator models. Trench coats on civil protection. Trans-human rebels. It was a blast.
First joined somewhere late 08 / early 09 (?) give or take around that time by all means.
My first character which I don't even remember the name of was a guy who ICLY ran that little shop place on the corner of C18 at the square, but that was just a front for my scheming means of getting scripts! Repeatedly lured units up the catwalks to that back room, spawned some decorations in there and no collided something tall enough to hide in... Knocked units out with little real RP, took the loots and then ran.
I got banned (24h or something) for doing that and just being a script kiddie whore, little knowledge of actual serious RP. I read up on some guides and began to take it more seriously and now here we are.... 2k17 and lining up onto 2k18. (Had a period of being an admin on HL2RP, TRP...)
My fondest memories of HL2RP are just RP'ing with @Shep and @Foley (Aleksei Fedorov) with that inevitable demise at the hands of @Drakens his character.
Part 2 Electric Boogaloo;
I realized serious RP was pretty much dying and somehow TnB was still up. Got on the server and walked around for a bit, had some computer issues (thanks u guys for being around and having something fun to do while I got a new computer)- Made Chelsea Dixon, a now moderately established character that's seen her share of hardship but mostly just ended up being Donald Trump thanks to a few units and some people like @muffinbowl and @Vegas and @gutshot - @zap430 and @Carrie are probably playing her best friends right now but Carrie took a small break from the server, it'll be interesting to see how she brings Aisling back. She's not dead, though, just sick. But anyway, Chelsea's even made it all the way to being a CP in the few months I've been on the server this second time around, and now I play both sides of the field. Muahahaha.
oh wait no i take that back, the first time was when i got involved in some s2k with the rebel crew, dave got on, cota was called. holed up i n the c45 xccr in the back. i pegged an EOW with a dinky glock before going down in a single shot
or i think they got me before i got a shot off
either way, it was silly
