    A New Take on the Classic Universe

    The Story So Far
    The year is 2082. Twenty years after the Combine Multinational Beneficiary have succeeded in establishing their position of dominance over the human species, draining oceans of their resources, usurping mineral deposits and revoking the Earth of it's assets. The Metropolitic Authority are the peacekeeping jury of each capital city, numerated by a single or two digits. You are in City Two. Formerly known as Chicago, Illinois, this metropolis is now contained by a series of checkpoints & security borders. New arrivals are greeted by a weary, blonde-haired male onscreen, tattered American flags waving about in the wind. He spouts the typical Combine publicity spin, ending with an eery warning; "Be wise, be safe," he groans: "Be aware." Be aware indeed, civilian.

    It's not safe here.

    Hello, Cloud Sixteen. This is my first time writing a community thread, so bear with me here.

    Restitution Network is designed to give an atmosphere of brutality as well as uncertainty to the world of Half-Life 2, based on modifications to the game such as FakeFactory's Cinematic Mod, and Der Schwarze Nebel, a Half-Life 2 Beta recreation. This /is/ heavily plot related, obviously attempting to sway the plot in your own character's favor will result in consequences.

    [​IMG]
    The Metropolitic Enforcement Authority, more commonly referred to as Metropolice or Metrocops, are the judicial branch of the Combine Overwatch forces. With a swagger in their step, they guard the farthest reaches of City Two, be it high or low. They're labelled from u7-u1, similar to an older community titled Omega Nine.

    [​IMG]
    The Overwatch Terran Alliance is a single branch of the naval fleet of the Overwatch command. Automatic rifles in hand, they act as reinforcement to Metropolitic enforcers, as well as military sentinels to Overwatch command-points. You can expect them to roleplay not as your everyday 'robotic' transhuman, that's not what we're going for here. We encourage the ability for all of the main whitelisted factions to act simply as a support to the main star of the show,



    [​IMG]
    Civilians are the most important faction of any Half-Life 2 Roleplay server, and it goes to show here. Here in this universe, we operate under the assumption that players will group up, working together to meet their goals. Think of Dungeons & Dragons in this aspect. We also understand if some individuals wish to venture on their own, and we will accommodate for this scenario by splitting up our team to various sections of the map for this very purpose.

    Just to clarify, is this a normal City setup? Or anything different?

    Being a normal city server is not a negative, but besides the flavor changes with the naming and time-period.. Is there anything else?

    Does the server have any features aswell?

    :agree:
    It does sound interesting and the thread is, in my opinion, better than most starter threads but you didn't really tell us what other factions exist. Or anything else special that the server has. Because right now it just looks like a simple reskin.

  4. This looks pretty interesting, I really liked Der Schwarze Nebel as it had all the good parts of FakeFactory. Regardless of features though I'm interested in seeing a HL2 CRP server that is promising at driving a narrative more than anything. Sounds dope.

    @BananasTheKing Try explaining more about the features you're advertising. (Gameplay, Attributes, Weapons, Any custom things).

    I really appreciate all the feedback! Right now, the gameplay is very similar to your standard server; nothing /special,/ but it's definitely not vanilla either. You're going to see a lot of mishmashing of features from other popular servers such as a clothing system, with custom sounds for equipping, and using RealCS guns from Counter Strike: Source. In this universe, Combine infantry don't really use things like pulse-rifles, energy equipment, or anything like that. The most accurate thing you'd see in that regard is that they still use the same types of batteries for charging their suits. You'll instead see modern weapons, things like M16s, P228s, etc. Hence the RealCS system!

    Other features include, as stated, a narrative-point that affects all civilians; so I guess you could say we're civvie-biased? I don't know. We're operating under the point that factions like MEA & OTA are more roleplay supplements to aid the 'main quest' of sorts. There is in fact another faction, we've actually mashed the Civil Workers' Union with Proselytes from the nebulous.cloud franchise. I know, I know. Before you all get your basket of tomatoes to throw at me, it /will/ make more sense in the future, it's not like they're gonna have fully-automatic weaponry straight off the train.

    Right now, the most obvious thing you'll see straight in the main menu is a custom font, gradient & other variable things. Which is pretty easy to do, so I don't expect some of the veterans here to be impressed by that, but I thought it was worth mentioning anyhow.

    We're actually gonna have three 'Arcs' so to speak. Taking place over the course of a period of time.
    City, Canal-Station & the Barrens. Multiple 'parts' will be between these, major story events & such.

    Yea', our people don't do that. I've specifically removed the more common 'cringe' voice binds for this very reason.

    I like the focus on a overarching story, seems most hl2rp servers are void of this and the roleplay turns into rudimentary & boring city roleplay. Hopefully the story is fleshed out and finds a way to make the server fun for everyone involved.

    What time would be best for most here, so I can adjust to peoples' schedules? I'm thinking perhaps 4-5pm Mountain Time? Something around then, maybe.
