A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 10 )
There comes a time in the Zone when the only Artifacts you ever
still see or come across are those only found on the Dead. I took
everything but the useless Pistol and 9X18 Ammo that I had a Code
be them Friend, Neutral or Enemy, I always left the Dead their Pistol:
My kind of Loot. An Artifact, some Ammo and a Grenade:
I heard gunfire and as I approached the Gauntlet I ran into a Loner:
Found several Dead Bandits on the other side who foolishly tried to
attack the Duty Detachment. Great...now I had some Vodka & Food:
This was a very rare trip for leaving all the Dutyers still alive in Yantar
and coming all this way north and finding all the Dutyers still in place:
I stopped by my only major Stash in the entire Zone where I used a Body:
As I left the Wild Territory I glanced at all the dropped weapons of
all the Men who hard been ripped apart by Mutants at the Entrance:
I finally arrived in Eastern Rostok in the middle of the Night:
It felt so good to be Home but as expected it was mostly deserted:
I stopped by my Main Artifact Stash and dropped off some including
my Mutant Body Parts. I stopped selling all my Artifacts a long time
ago not needing the money. Collecting 101 Pseudodog Tails was Fun:
Other than the 100 Rad Bar Patrons, the Dutyers at each Gate and at
the Duty HQ, there was only a single Loner Guard in the small room
and 2 Dutyers walking about in the Warehouses. Rostok was Empty:
Gave the Bottle of Vodka to Arnie and went to my Ammo & Supplies Stash:
Sidorovich told me one of my Order had passed a message to him that
I was needed to go to the Red Forest to go help escort some Loners:
I sold him 2 of my worn out Shotguns. He had nothing I needed or wanted:
I prepared my Load for my next assignment going up to the Brain Scorcher
but before I left there was one more thing I needed to do at the Duty HQ:
I passed through the Main Gate just after 4am. The dual Seva Suited
Guards stood silently with their headlamps still on. I saw my Friend:
"How's Stalingrad?" Captain Ivantsov cheerfully asked holding his Tunder.
"Good...I even charged the Battery myself. Your Men said to send some more
Anti-Freeze...the usual Gas and also why you're at it...a couple of new rear Tires."
Ivantsov looked puzzled at the last request. "It's a real funny thing but the best
I can figure out is the Zombies shot up the rear ones for some strange reason."
Again, bless ya for putting up the link to this for me!
SoC: I didn't realize they said it was Bloodsucker TENTACLES that were worth so much. Well, what do I do with these........?
CoP: "Snowflake", I'll give that wise guy Beard "Snowflake"......
