A Truck named STALINGRAD

It was December in the Zone. The snow was everywhere and the wind
blew behind my back whistling and spraying ice and mist on my goggles.
There were those places found deep in the Zone usually at the farthest
reaches where so many Stalkers were drawn to like a Moth to a Flame.
A place of rumored Treasure and Wealth...endless Wonder and Artifacts.
A place where they were drawn to in countless numbers. The reality was
just like the Moths the Loners ended up the same way. A place of Death.
There were three places in the Zone I knew of where so many Loners
would travel to. All three of them were the same that few if any ever
returned from. I was in one of those places now. It was called Yantar.

I arrived down at the Loner's Camp in Yantar where I found 9 Stalkers.
Veterans, Experts and Experienced there were no Rookies among them.
Two of them here were my friends who I was stopping by to check on:

http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/8738/ygb04pr3.jpg

There was a big discussion going on about all of them assaulting the
Yantar Compound as a Group. I told them that there was no Loot or
Artifacts in there and the only weapons to be found were worn out
Zombie. They brushed me off and didn't seem to believe me:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/6972/ygb02ni3.jpg

The Loners were telling their stories and bragging among themselves
making them boast about the past and what they were going to do next.
A few of them seemed fueled by Vodka while the others just by stupidity.
Despite all the warnings of Zombies and Snorks they were not listening:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/765/ygb01kq2.jpg

Weapons were checked and loaded, Suits and Armor adjusted and
tightened and abruptly the Loners took off spreading about the hill:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/5734/ygb05id3.jpg

I had told a couple of the more levelheaded ones to stay behind
and watch our back and camp. We didn't need to be flanked from
the road. I ran up the hill to catch up with the lead three Stalkers:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/9136/ygb06uq6.jpg

With the running and crunching of ice and snow we were not quiet.
This was a terrible idea and plan but I couldn't let them go alone:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/4012/ygb07dv7.jpg

My Mini-Map displayed 15 Contacts which meant we had company:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5323/ygb08my3.jpg

We crested the hill and found the Road and lots of Zombies.
They were everywhere. I was firing my SVU left and right
and trying very hard to help cover all the assaulting Stalkers:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/6294/ygb09qi1.jpg

Georg Viking fell wounded right at the Gated Entrance:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/1885/ygb10yl8.jpg

I went through my first clip and quickly reloaded. The Zombies
were moaning and spraying bullets everywhere like crazy:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/7100/ygb11vr1.jpg

It was hard to shoot at the Zombies and keep an eye on the others.
I heard yelling and cries for help among the screams and moaning:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/9520/ygb12bg3.jpg

I checked my PDA Contacts and saw there were only four others left.
Three of them were friends who I told we needed to get out of here:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5240/ygb13hg7.jpg

Suddenly the Zombies seemed to flank us from each side:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5128/ygb14el0.jpg

I ran after the Neutral Loner who was going after that Zombie:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 2 )

I yelled at Petka Beast that we've lost too many of our Party and
to get the hell out of there and retreat behind me while I covered:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/266/ygb16iz6.jpg

Petka Beast ran behind me as I saw on my Mini-Map two of my friends
had made it back to the Front Gate...unknown number of Zombies ahead:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/3513/ygb17rw4.jpg

I lay down covering fire and was slowly stepping back when it happened:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/38/ygb18ve3.jpg

A wave of pain and fear briefly swept over me...I immediately
switched over to my SVU and sluggishly raised it to the right:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/7861/ygb19og1.jpg

Before I could shoot...one of the others had rushed back to help me:
http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/8608/ygb20id3.jpg

I heard him scream and fall as a blast of Psychic Power meant for me
took him instead and I saw the Controller raise his hands for another attack:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8812/ygb21pi3.jpg

I fired right as the Controller knocked aside my aim with his Mind:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/9325/ygb22vx5.jpg

I attempted to aim again and again the SVU was knocked about by him:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4948/ygb23od2.jpg

The Controller was getting closer and I could not get a fix on him to shoot:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4230/ygb24bz3.jpg

Everytime I tried to get him, I kept missing and he kept getting closer:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8008/ygb25ez5.jpg

I put down my Scope and saw he was coming right upon me.
My friends were at the Front Gate while Petka Beast was next to me:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/9826/ygb26nw8.jpg

Suddenly the Controller blasted me with a wave that made me see red.
I stumbled and almost dropped my weapon and struggled to stay awake:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4601/ygb27ca3.jpg

I could barely raise my weapon and could not even focus:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/1447/ygb28dm3.jpg

I heard Petka Beast yelling and firing and abruptly the Controller turned around:
http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/5320/ygb29ea4.jpg

Petka Beast had killed the Controller and had really saved my ass.
I looked at the Mini-Map...why were the others not moving from the Gate?
http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/8364/ygb30qg6.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 3 )

Slowly my vision cleared and I could think straight. Petka Beast
stood beside me while two of my Friends stood behind. My Mini-Map
still had six contacts meaning there were still more Zombies out there:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/7527/ygb31fj4.jpg

Petka Beast moved slowly towards the left where we both heard a
noise. Suddenly he screamed out and fell and two of us rushed to
help him. As I entered the building I faced an Exoskeleton Zombie
that got him, I killed it and quickly faced more fire from deep within.
I returned fire in the darkness and moved in as I reloaded my next clip:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/3343/ygb32lx4.jpg

I couldn't see where the Zombie had gone... I saw I had only one friend
still alive on the Mini-Map while there were a total of seven contacts:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/2564/ygb33pm8.jpg

Suddenly the Zombified Stalker sprang out from his hiding place.
The bullets were spraying wildly and I did take a few armor hits:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/6892/ygb34sf3.jpg

The Mercenary Zombie wailed loudly and started shooting away:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4169/ygb35rn9.jpg

One of the Loners had come back to help me as I steadied my aim:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/9395/ygb36ab0.jpg

Even with headshots the "Living Dead" were hard to kill again:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/5507/ygb37jx6.jpg

Finally he fell and I saw there were just two of us left:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/1262/ygb38qz4.jpg

I found where Grishko Professor fell and took his Ammo and Food:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/1562/ygb39gt0.jpg

I looked for the others but could find no one else alive. I still had
more contacts and heard shooting but could not see who or where:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/7043/ygb40sq8.jpg

I moved in deeper and ran into more Zombies:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4594/ygb41ss3.jpg

I unloaded a full clip and watched it rake up his chest to his face:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4937/ygb42sg4.jpg
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/5628/ygb43ro7.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4563/ygb44mc7.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4491/ygb45sp8.jpg

The Zombies hands faltered, he dropped his weapon
and then seemed to fall backwards in slow motion:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/892/ygb46iy5.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4660/ygb47rb0.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4787/ygb48wx0.jpg

I looked at my Mini-Map...there was one green dot still left:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/8238/ygb49sc1.jpg

There was a scuffling noise behind me and I quickly whipped around:
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/6619/ygb50kt4.jpg

There is one thing I don´t understand.
Seriously - I need help figuring this out...

Tejas, do you use ANY kind if mod in your game?
The reason I ask is that I have NEVER EVER seen a Controller attack exept for the very first one you meet in the Agroprom underground.

They just make their moaning noice and blur my screen. But never attack or do any kind of damage at all.

It is kind of boring

Cmdr. Vasily Kutnetz~

Every Day in the Zone is a "Cliffhanger"


Krubarax~

My Game remained totally Unmodded for 7 Months until December 2012
arrived to which I only added the Winter 0.3 Mod. Just didn't seem right
to be bright and sunny after spending so many months in the Zone.

I have been attacked and have had the "Mind-Pull" thing done on me:

- Agroprom Underground
- Yantar Underground
- Yantar above ground
- Army Warehouses

You have to be within the right range for it to happen.
It's a lot more dangerous Underground because you have
less room to maneuver. The biggest surprise I ever got was
when I was in Yantar running on top of the elevated crane when
the Controller pulled me out of my Body and slammed me to him.
When I was thrown back, I snapped back in my physical Body and was
so disoriented that I lost my footing and fell from up high to the ground below.

However I know what you mean about the Controller not being so
deadly when they get right up to your face. They should have made
the Controller be able to maul you with those claws like a Bloodsucker.

Hey common
I am not a n00b.

I have played this game since release and I have faced and killed hundreds of Controllers (maybe slight exaggeration )

I have, for the sake of science, seen them from 200 meters. then Stood motionless and just waiting for them to close untill we stand face to face.

They do ZERO damage and they never attack... they just walk towards me, moan and blur my screen, eventually turning it red as they get closer.

Controllers can kill you both at a distance and at close range, only with their psy power.

If check your your inventory, you will see 3 bars: a red one for health, a yellow one for radiation, and a blue one for psy-health. Some people may think the blue bar is a bugged bar for your suit. It is not.

If you play at higher difficulty levels you will see the blue bar drop a bit faster when in contact with a Controller, even without the mind pull thing. When there is no more blue health, you die.

interesting.
As you said I thought the blue bar showed my suit health and that it was bugged (because it always show full health)

I will head out to some controller infested areas and check this out.
Also, when the blue bar reach zero, is there instant death?
As in you will not lose any health but just drop dead?

Can't wait to finish work now to get home and try this out!

To extend what Daroo (and I; see Edit) said:

1) All controllers have the ranged attack. Most don't use it right away; tube_at_once for the controller defaults to false and is only set true for the Agroprom tunnels controller and the X16 controller.

You have to be a certain distance from the controller (default is 10 meters) and the controller has to see you, even if you don't see it.

To Tejas Slacker's list I will add Pripyat, although I don't know if the controllers are present in an unfixed game. But they all have the tube "Mind Pull" ranged attack.

2) The controller's up-close-and-personal melee attack has no effect on the Marked One at lower difficulty levels.* Your mental health, shown by the blue bar in your inventory and indicated on your HUD by a color-coded encased-brain icon, will drop noticeably at Master difficulty level when near enough to a controller. Once it hits zero, you hit ground.

Yes, Krubarax, death ensues when the mental health bar hits zero, and that's just seconds when you are near two or more controllers at once.

__________
*Hmm. Krubarax, you might not be a noob, but you could be a Novice. Or maybe Stalker (Experienced)...

Edit: Man, you guys type faster than I do. See my post at the end of the first page of this thread where I said the same thing:

Yes, I play at stalker difficult level.
I realize that I have played this game long enough and know enough about it turn it up a notch, but I do not like changing de difficult level during a game... and I have come too far to start all over

Maybe I should make an exeption and try to make it a littel bit harder.
As mentioned in another thread, the zone is basicly a walk in the park nowadays

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 4 )

Bullets whizzed by my head and one ricocheted off my helmet:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7581/ygb51ca2.jpg

The Zombie was getting entangled in the ladder and moaned louder:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/6067/ygb52ms1.jpg

A few rounds in the face put an end to that distraction:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/2554/ygb53xq0.jpg

I turned around and looked for the others. I had lost track of
how many of us had entered and where some others had fallen.
I quickly found one of my friends, Georg Viking fighting a Zombie:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/484/ygb54kc9.jpg

The Zombie fell and I heard more Snorks coming and someone shooting:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/6622/ygb55ay6.jpg

I told Georg Viking that we needed to get the Hell out of there now:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/3753/ygb56sr1.jpg

We moved towards the Front Gate when we were attacked again:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7924/ygb57nv7.jpg

I killed several Zombies and Snorks and then found my Friend:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/8168/ygb58uu9.jpg

I found another of my Friends next to an Exoskeleton Zombie:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/4954/ygb59ua3.jpg

It looks like everyone here was Dead and I was low on Ammo:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4538/ygb60ip1.jpg

I looked everywhere for any Survivors of our ill-fated Party:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4489/ygb61od7.jpg

My last Friend, I found laying right at the Front Gate entrance.
It looks like the Merc Zombie got him as he was trying to escape:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/5660/ygb62ts7.jpg

I was so overloaded I didn't have room to take his Weapon
and more than anything I wanted to put on some distance:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 5 )

For the first time it seemed I noticed the chill in the air.
My Armor was damaged, I was bleeding and low on Ammo.
I turned around and gave one last look at all my fallen Friends:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/2259/ygb64fm7.jpg

I walked down the Road and then turned towards the swamp where
we had come up. There I found Rus Trasher quite cold on the ground:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4687/ygb65bq9.jpg

Next to him lay Yashka Eared in his Seva Suit and dropped TRs 301:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/139/ygb66wy4.jpg

They had never even made it up the Hill:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6756/ygb67we0.jpg

I approached the Loner's Camp where I had left the two Guards but
my Contacts showed there was three and one of them on the ground:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5862/ygb68fy6.jpg

Sava Nothing was surprised to see me saying he thought everyone
else was dead. Only one he said had made it back before me wounded:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/8109/ygb69ek1.jpg

It was the only other survivor of our ill-fated Yantar Party.
I gave Alex Agent a Medkit and did for him the best I could:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/35/ygb70hp3.jpg

He slowly got up but walked right past his weapon:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/2401/ygb71zt3.jpg

Alex Agent sat down and started playing a Song for our Dead Conmrades:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/871/ygb72al5.jpg

I quickly looked around and decided to get going:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6096/ygb73ux0.jpg

I told Igoryok Iron the details of what had happened and said
I needed to get some more Ammo and sell some used weapons.
I promised him I would help them get some more reinforcements:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6596/ygb74cn6.jpg

I emerged again from the lower drained Swamp and scanned the
Road up ahead. I knew that the loss of a Controller ruling Yantar
would somehow and inexplicably have someone sending another:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5665/ygb75yp8.jpg

I climbed up the closest overlooking hill for a better vantage point.
No movement on the road or way down in the Swamp and Mobile Lab:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4855/ygb76ln0.jpg

I turned behind me and saw the 3 Loners with Alex Agent still playing:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/1889/ygb77vh8.jpg

I only had 48 total SVU Rounds left on me between here and Rostok:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6127/ygb78zl5.jpg

I didn't see a single Dutyer guarding the entrance to the Mobile Lab:
http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/3306/ygb79gy8.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 6 )

Some in the Zone have said that a Controller has to visually see you
first before they can start their Psychic Attack. This is not true as a
Controller can sense your presence from a good distance away. I
was far from the Canyon but suddenly I was being assaulted:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/262/ygb80yg8.jpg

I shakily raised my Scope and waited for several long minutes.
The Controller only now for the first time could visually see me
but we both knew the other was there from a kilometer before:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1162/ygb81bg2.jpg

I thought it would be using the road but it had other plans:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/8360/ygb82mu4.jpg

I fired a few Rounds but it was making me loose my aim and miss:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/7836/ygb83ok0.jpg

I had no idea where or what the Controller was doing:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/6348/ygb84yg1.jpg

It then looked like it was headed towards the Mobile Lab:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1421/ygb85xh5.jpg

I think I had only managed to hit it twice and it was moving away:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/9307/ygb86bz8.jpg

I looked back at the Mobile Lab still seeing no sign of Life:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/8274/ygb87tt6.jpg

Would the Controller go after Sakharov inside of there?
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/5280/ygb88rs7.jpg

Abruptly the Controller turned around and headed back:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3050/ygb89xj4.jpg

I wasn't going to waste any more SVU Ammo and decided to risk
the chance of it's deadlier "Mind-Pull" Attack. I loaded my SPSA-14:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6227/ygb90ds7.jpg

I thought I saw it ahead as I took careful steps forward in the snow:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9969/ygb91wg2.jpg

The Controller's back was to me as it stood over a Dead Body:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/8905/ygb92nh1.jpg

A wave of Psychic Energy painfully engulfed me and it turned and was
now in my face. I fired my Shotgun and blood gushed from it's mouth:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/7933/ygb93lt8.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2950/ygb94wz1.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/47/ygb95we4.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6323/ygb96ry6.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3098/ygb97qy9.jpg

The Controller grabbed me as I felt it's claws dig in and I
shot it again in the face at point blank range as it roared:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2895/ygb98wp2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/1245/ygb99sx2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/8943/ygb100lv3.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9293/ygb101qq2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2521/ygb102dh7.jpg

Suddenly it was eerily quiet...I could hear my heartbeat pounding and the
smoke from my Shotgun drifted upward and was dispersed away in the wind:

I'm only using the Winter 0.3 Mod added after 7 Months
to a totally Unmodded Game. Everything you see including
all Men & Mutant Behavior is simply found in the original Game.

Man, I think you and I have the same dang weakness:

You can't but help care for the fate of others trapped in the

fellow Stalkers is the cornerstone of being a Liquidator.
I've seen your work and you should take the Tests.

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 7 )

I didn't see any Dutyers at the entrance to the Mobile Lab but
found them inside the walls and out of the cold northern wind.
They greeted me and said they had heard my SVU far away
and asked about the Loner's Camp. I said a few were there:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/573/ygb104zk9.jpg

5 Dutyers guarding the Mobile Lab with the single sentry walking back
and forth near the Gate. I almost forgot to ask them the silly question
Captain Ivantsov back at the Duty HQ in Rostok kept bugging me to ask
them in Yantar. "How's Stalingrad?" I asked expecting to be laughed at
and told that was the nickname for the Duty Detachment down here:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/9780/ygb106mu3.jpg

"Tell Captain Ivantsov we need more anti-freeze" said Seva Diver.
I must have looked at them totally confused. "Tell him" another said.
Sanyok Witcher then explained that when the original Duty Detachment
first came down here setting up the Mobile Lab that they arrived in two
Trucks. They were Captain Ivantsov's Trucks and that he had named
them Leningrad and Stalingrad after the stories of his grandfather in the
Great Patriotic War. They said Leningrad now had fried electronics from
the strange Yantar transmissions and was right outside the Front Gate:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4103/ygb105nb4.jpg

"That's our escape plan" Pasha Hipster announced "In case everything
goes really bad." They continued to explain that the Truck named
Stalingrad was right outside the harmful transmissions range in the
Yantar Canyon. The Battery was kept charged and they would bring
in fuel and it was their way out of here if the Mobile Lab ever fell:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5097/ygb107po1.jpg

I went inside for a little warmth and sold some weapons and loaded up
on Ammo. Not surprisingly I heard gunfire outside and went on out to
find a couple of Zombies descending off the road and headed right for
me. I raised my SVU and noticed a total of only 38 Rounds remaining:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6105/ygb108nb2.jpg

The Zombified Stalker was not dead yet and wriggled wildly on the snow:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/7076/ygb109fy8.jpg

Not wanting to get my knife out in the cold I blasted it again
with my Shotgun. When I searched the Zombie Bandit I quickly
realized that this poor soul had very recently been converted:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6363/ygb110le5.jpg

I surveyed the entire former Yantar Swamp now only a small
fraction left of it's original large expanse. I looked for movement:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6180/ygb111xs6.jpg

Picked up a few more dropped weapons and headed back to the Mobile Lab:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/9665/ygb112ua7.jpg

The wind was picking up and more sleet was blowing through the air:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5849/ygb113il7.jpg

I stopped by my Main Yantar Stash and grabbed some AK & Viper Ammo:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/9087/ygb114ek0.jpg

Looks like Kruglov and Vasiliev are still dead tired:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/3796/ygb115fv9.jpg

As I was leaving, Sanyok Witcher called me over and asked me to do
him a favor. He said he forgot to put some Fuel Stabilizer in Stalingrad
and asked if I would do it for him without letting the others know he didn't:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/7775/ygb116qf0.jpg

Not a problem I told him. I left the Mobile Lab and saw a new Loner
approaching and decided to take a little shortcut over the Hills. I quickly
picked up some lethal Radiation but nothing the Artifacts couldn't deal with:
http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/5334/ygb117am6.jpg

I approached the Yantar Canyon and saw Stalingrad down below:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/498/ygb118wb7.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 8 )

The low elevation of the Yantar Swamp surrounded by the higher Hills
had really protected Yantar from receiving a worse dose of Radiation.
The Hills themselves however were quite deadly. My Belt Artifacts
cleansed me of all the harmful effects but it took a few minutes:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/7535/ygb119cg2.jpg

I put back on a Soul Artifact to reverse the Blood Loss:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/7666/ygb120ne3.jpg

The Road from Yantar going to the Wild Territory continued over that
rise and descended again to a large open plain. The wind died down
and there was a moment of absolute silence. Then I heard talking...
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/108/ygb121ai0.jpg

I thought a Loner was coming up the Road but it was just a Zombie:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/2825/ygb122ta4.jpg

A few rounds of my Shotgun put an end to that noise. Then I heard
running in the snow. A Loner appeared and ran right by the Zombie:
http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/9798/ygb123wz2.jpg

He wouldn't even stop to talk and turned to point his weapon behind him:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/4274/ygb124gd9.jpg

Suddenly his shout to me echoed in the Canyon.
"Get out of there Stalker, something really bad is coming!"
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/4198/ygb125vv0.jpg

I thought at least 2 or 3 Loners had made it to the Loner's Camp.
With only 5 to 6 there now they needed a few more to their number:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/1091/ygb126dk4.jpg

And I hadn't even had a chance to attend to Stalingrad. With that
thought in mind I turned around and walked back to the Truck:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/9718/ygb127hg8.jpg

Okay...Let's add the Fuel Stabilizer and crank up that Engine:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/1372/ygb128cj3.jpg

I charged the Battery and checked all the fluids. Maybe that Loner
had just gotten spooked coming up on the slower Zombie I had killed:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/7681/ygb129wp1.jpg

Stalingrad was in great shape and I climbed on top for the view:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/954/ygb130vx5.jpg

I was just about to hop down and head back to the Mobile Lab when
I got a sudden premonition to jump down in the bed and seek cover:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5760/ygb131vq0.jpg

For some strange reason I thought about the fact that there were no
found Anomalies anywhere above ground in Yantar...and then I was
reminded that meant no Suit & Health Regeneration within my reach:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/6756/ygb132ib1.jpg

I had a little Exoskeleton Suit damage and 100 Rounds of Shotgun, 200
Viper, 200 AK, a few Grenades and Medkits...what was I worried about?
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5046/ygb133hl8.jpg

The wind was picking up again...and I felt it was getting a lot colder:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5329/ygb134pc7.jpg

I switched to my Viper with more Ammo and to keep it warm and working:
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/590/ygb135dd7.jpg

I suddenly fought the desire to make a run for it and hunkered down even lower:
http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/5854/ygb136zo9.jpg

The Loner had been right...Something Evil this way comes.
And it looks like I was going to make my stand here and now...
http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/3220/ygb137zp8.jpg

In the back of a Truck named Stalingrad.

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 9 )

Suddenly everything got brighter and my head starting aching and
without moving a single inch myself I was knocked aside to the left:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/4660/ygb139ag0.jpg
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/4452/ygb140mj4.jpg

The pain and intensity washed over me and I could see clearly again:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/6614/ygb141hk7.jpg

I raised my Viper at the expected shape that was coming:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9248/ygb142te3.jpg

The Controller used it's Psychic Powers to knock aside my aim:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9546/ygb143xh7.jpg

I fired a few bursts into it's torso:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/3172/ygb144er6.jpg

Checked my weapon and reloaded my clip:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9372/ygb145ra1.jpg

I was blasted again but this time much worse and I saw red:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/7216/ygb146xn4.jpg

The Controller roared at me and seem quite agitated.
I tried very hard to focus the iron sights of my Viper:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/930/ygb147ab2.jpg

My aim was knocked downward this time:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9303/ygb148ev1.jpg

When I looked back up the Controller was passing me:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/7778/ygb149gs1.jpg

I couldn't let him get passed me to the others:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/7234/ygb150jr2.jpg

As if it read my Mind it turned around and stared right at me:
http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/7092/ygb151qw5.jpg

I slowly and carefully took aim with it's back to me when-
http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/9701/ygb152fd2.jpg
http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/475/ygb153gx7.jpg

The pain was blinding, my head felt dizzy..it turned and blasted me again:
http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/3833/ygb154so7.jpg
http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/7357/ygb155rl4.jpg

When I struggled to maintain consciousness it got around me:
http://img112.imageshack.us/img112/5831/ygb156qt5.jpg

It was escaping and I was hurting so badly I could not even see straight:
http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/4525/ygb157kp0.jpg

I was seeing two of everything...

My head and vision cleared but by then the Controller was slipping
out of range off all my weapons but one...and I only had one chance
as it disappeared behind the thick brush and trees. I couldn't let it
get to the Loner's Camp but hadn't been able to stop it so far:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/1133/ygb159hl5.jpg

Once it got past the tree it would use it's Psi-Attack again. I carefully
raised my Scope having just a split second to shoot it right as it would
appear again. I waited while the seconds seemed like hours when
suddenly the sound of my SVU rang out echoing in the Canyon. The
Controller went limp, dropped and slid down the hill in the Snow:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/7550/ygb160xi9.jpg

Strange to come across so many Controllers traveling alone without
their usual entourage. While Barkeep had only wanted me to turn off
the Psi-Transmission Underground, everything below was still operational:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/2340/ygb161ce8.jpg

The Unknown Forces at the Center of the Zone in Chernobyl
really seemed to be trying very hard to retake all of Yantar:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/6941/ygb162lf0.jpg

I suddenly heard a Mutant scream behind me...
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/3220/ygb163ij0.jpg

Recognizing the growl of a Snork, I knew they did not travel alone:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/117/ygb164gg0.jpg

32 Total Rounds for my SVU...I didn't need to waste them:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/5548/ygb165zt6.jpg

I switched back over to my Viper as the two Snorks approached me:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/3471/ygb166ww7.jpg

They leaped and flew over me and back again as I wildly try to keep
my sights on them. I quickly realized they were trying to make me
waste my Ammo. I grabbed my SPSA-14 and got the first one:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/1990/ygb167wx3.jpg

Once again it was only the sounds of Winter blowing through the Canyon:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/160/ygb168rm2.jpg

I brought up my Inventory and checked my Reserves.
242 AK Rounds, 131 Viper Rounds, 89 Shotgun, 22 SVU,
2 F-1 & 2 RGD-5 Grenades and 54 Pistol Rounds Total.
Down to 1 Medkit, 3 Bandages and 1 Tourist Delight:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/1462/ygb169cq4.jpg

I got out my AK and loaded a Full Clip:
http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/1896/ygb170zk0.jpg

Find the Secret Lab...Reach the Power Plant...See the Wish Granter.
All things I hoped to do soon but now I was kind of busy doing a few
other things. As I looked at my PDA I abruptly got another Contact:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/8326/ygb171il2.jpg

Was it a Man or a Zombie?
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5697/ygb172zj8.jpg

Vadik Conman...just the kind of Stalker that Yantar attracts:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/8141/ygb173gx6.jpg

As he passed by me I asked if he saw anything following him.
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/696/ygb174uv0.jpg

Yes he said that there were two Loners on the Road way behind him:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4985/ygb175aq9.jpg

I turned and shivered in the cold waiting to greet more needed Loners:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4112/ygb176qj7.jpg

I could hear them talking to each other as they were coming up the rise:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6893/ygb177vq6.jpg

I checked my PDA Contacts:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 11 )

My PDA Contacts showed 2 Zombies...wait...3 Zombies..no... it was 4
Zombies approaching me including an Expert wearing an Exoskeleton:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/8203/ygb179ps5.jpg

I steadied my SVU's Scope and waited for them to come into view.
The crack of each round echoed loudly through out the entire Canyon.
I watched as each of them dropped and slid down the snowy slopes:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/1552/ygb180ug7.jpg

I looked at the Road where their Bodies came to rest and saw some
movement...I had just killed 4 Zombified Stalkers but now I had 3 more:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/8425/ygb181eb0.jpg

Not 3 more...it was 5 and they were all muttering loudly:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/844/ygb182rg3.jpg

Their footsteps were starting to sound like an approaching Army:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/2646/ygb183eb4.jpg

Through my Scope I realized they had just spotted me and opened fire:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/111/ygb184sj6.jpg

The Bullets flew over my head and were soon impacting against
the thick metal bed of the Truck I was in. I quickly ducked down:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/6686/ygb185tf9.jpg

Several of them were now shooting as I peeked at how many were coming:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3320/ygb186ys0.jpg

My PDA quickly showed me there were former Dutyers, Loners, Bandits,
Mercenaries and even Freedom Troopers that had been turned into Zombies:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/5761/ygb187ak0.jpg

That meant they would be carrying AKs, Vipers, Obokans, TRs 301s,
IL-86s, Sawn-off Shotguns and every Exoskeleton armed with SPSA-14s:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/4595/ygb188ws1.jpg

The Zombies spread out and were going up the slopes on each side:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3039/ygb189ys1.jpg

One of them opened up with his AK with the clang-clang-clang of the
rounds hitting the steel bed of Stalingrad with one bouncing around
inside with me. Suddenly they all started shooting and I heard the
sounds of various automatic weapons and the shotgun blasts that was
deafening. With a calmness and clarity I have had very few times ever
in the Zone...I realized that I was not going to be getting out of here Alive:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/9040/ygb190if4.jpg

I had at least 15 Zombified Stalkers attacking. I tossed an F-1:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/5260/ygb191yh2.jpg

Bullets were spraying everywhere bouncing and ricocheting wildly:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/2681/ygb192ph6.jpg

I threw another Grenade but being Zombies they had little effect:

Too many of them had gotten too close to me beneath my protected
view and were flanking around me. My Grenade got one of the Zombies:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/9405/ygb194th1.jpg

All my Grenades were gone and I got out my Shotgun.
I fired a few Rounds but there were just too many of them:
http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/7307/ygb195po2.jpg

I pulled out my AK seeing only 232 Rounds left. I was cold, hungry
and knew I probably only had a few minutes left to live but sure as
Hell I was going to take as many of the Zombified Stalkers with me:

I guess the Zombie army will get attacked from behind and get distracted.
Or you undress from your armor and sprint away from there.. that´s what I would have done

The Winter Mod should have been a part of the original Game after you
spend enough time in the Zone for the biggest Seasonal change. It's Cool.

Unlike an Army made up of Members of any of the other Factions,
the Zombified Stalkers show no fear and can take a lot more damage.

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 12 )

I was carrying two brand new SPSA-14 Shotguns I was taking to Rostok.
I had thought stopping by the Truck named Stalingrad would be a quick
effort to add the Fuel Stabilizer, charge the Battery and check it over.
I had expected a few Loners to be passing by and also that I would
watch their back if any Snorks or Zombies had been following.
What I didn't expect was the marching of a Zombified Army.

My AK came to life kicking and spewing it's hot lead and warming my hands:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/6190/ygb197ts2.jpg

I had killed over half a dozen Zombies but my Mini-Map showed that
at least 14 were still coming. I jammed in another fresh Ammo clip:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/7274/ygb198ma6.jpg

Several Exoskeleton Zombies were blasting me with SPSA-14s all at once:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/5864/ygb199ee8.jpg

A Loner Zombie raked his AK across me hitting me in my Helmet
and Armor as I continued firing having my choice of so many targets:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/4992/ygb200nm9.jpg

The Zombies were getting past me and up the slopes where they
could easily shoot down into Stalingrad's Bed neutralizing my cover.
I moved frantically from right to left shooting and loading another clip:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/8500/ygb201do5.jpg

A few of the Exoskeletons had gotten high enough blasting me with their
Shotguns so I switched to mine as several of them were only meters away:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/3937/ygb202ey8.jpg

A Zombie had flanked me on the far right and from up on the slope
he had shot me in the leg as several of them on the Road fired their
automatic weapons. Bleeding I knew I could never run out of here:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/9543/ygb203rv1.jpg

I stood up and blasted several quickly with the SPSA-14 that had
surrounded the Truck's bed on all sides. I dropped the Shotgun and
reloaded the AK firing at several more flanking on the higher slopes
above. 12 of them left and I had used up the last of my AK's Ammo:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/3029/ygb204fc3.jpg

I grabbed the Shotgun again as the Zombies kept coming with their
Army having dropped down to 9 attacking and my Shotgun reserves
told me I had fired over 50 rounds with it in just the last few minutes:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/977/ygb205nz2.jpg

I looked quickly at my PDA glancing at the date and time and Contacts:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/1757/ygb206ge6.jpg

My Shotgun starting jamming so I pulled out my UDP Compact and fired:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/5691/ygb207ku5.jpg

The 45 Hydro Rounds tore right through the Zombie's Brain:
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/474/ygb208it0.jpg

Suddenly no more Zombies were attacking...but still 4 remained:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/6852/ygb209oh6.jpg

I found one of them in an Exoskeleton wounded as I climbed out of the bed:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/2928/ygb210gt7.jpg

3 more out there and for the first time I had a moment to survey the Dead:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/9873/ygb211lo9.jpg

And then it hit me I had actually survived what had just seemed hopeless:
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/9198/ygb212ft1.jpg

A few of the Zombies had passed me but did not get very far:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/82/ygb213hc1.jpg

The 3 Zombies I still had left were only the fallen and dying as I found the last
one a former Dutyer who was wounded and hiding underneath the Dead Exo:
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/4421/ygb214pu3.jpg

I watched as my PDA changed from the 4 Dying to the red tint of 4 Dead:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/8441/ygb215aki8.jpg
http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/9035/ygb215bcf7.jpg

I looked at my Inventory. I had no more AK Ammo, 17 Shotgun shells,
12 SVU, 38 Pistol and I switched over to my Viper with it's emergency
remaining 131 Rounds. I had solely used my Belt Artifacts saving that
very last Scientific Medkit. With no food, exhausted of all reserves and
still having a bullet in my leg I realized I would not survive a 2nd Attack:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 13 )

I climbed out of the Truck bed and quickly started searching for Ammo.
Saw a Loner Zombie wearing glasses that looked like the Freeman Guy:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/6986/ygb217qs6.jpg

Came across 2 more good SPSA-14 Shotguns and 100 Viper Rounds:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/962/ygb218bu0.jpg

The wind suddenly shifted and I sensed I was not alone again:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/3334/ygb219nl9.jpg

The searing pain hit me as I struggled to maintain consciousness:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/8265/ygb220io8.jpg

I repeatedly tried to aim but was physically knocked aside each time.
The Controller roared at me with defiance and kept getting closer:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/6536/ygb221xl3.jpg

Every ounce of my strength was used to keep my weapon steady:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/1258/ygb222tm9.jpg

The top of the Controller's Head exploded in a dark red shower of blood:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/456/ygb223iq9.jpg

The Controller's arms flew back as it let out a guttural howl:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/9417/ygb224ly9.jpg

I approached the dying Controller carefully...it's breathing was very
shallow and labored as it stared right back at me without any fear.
It's lips moved and it seemed to gurgle some words and then died:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/3186/ygb225cy6.jpg

I expected to see a lot of Zombified Loners, Bandits and Dutyers
but it's always a mystery to find a Mercenary who generally never
venture far at all into dangerous and unknown places but prefer more
safe, controlled areas where all the booze and money is usually found:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/1052/ygb226cc6.jpg

I gathered PDA Log Entries and looked for Info and clues on all the Dead:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/7161/ygb227me7.jpg

Found a Zombified Dutyer still carrying an SPSA-14. I was slowly able
to replenish my needed AK and Shotgun Ammo but it was not enough:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/4213/ygb228ll0.jpg

Looting on the snow covered slopes was quite dangerous as I got a
lot more harmful Radiation exposure and lost a lot of Blood real fast:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/1236/ygb229wi5.jpg

I started counting all the fallen Zombies...
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/448/ygb230br9.jpg

With also 2 Controllers and 2 Snorks, I had about 25 Zombies total Dead:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/29/ygb231gr7.jpg

I now had a lot more Shotgun shells, 2 clips of AK and 4 new Grenades
but I really needed to head back to the Mobile Lab to get some Food, get
a lot more Ammo, dump the Shotguns and get the Bullet out of my leg:
http://img507.imageshack.us/img507/5336/ygb232rc5.jpg

I stiffly walked out of the Canyon trudging through the Winter snow.
I turned around and looked back at where I had been and realized that
in the back of the Truck with it's thick steel bed was the only reason I
was even still Alive. I had been very lucky to be in the right place at
the right time when the Zombified Army came marching into Yantar
to conquer it but instead ran into me...and a Truck named Stalingrad.

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 1 )

Wounded and bleeding I made it back to the Yantar Mobile Lab.
Sakharov used some strange instruments and quickly removed the
bullet from my thigh. He said he had just gotten a Message from the
Duty HQ in Rostok. The Loner's Camp in the southern Wild Territory
had reported another large movement of Zombies heading this way again.

I dropped off all the Shotguns but one and loaded up heavily on Ammo,
Food and Medkits. I brought the Dutyers up to date and told them if I
didn't return they would know where to find my Body. I cut over the
Hills again and soon found myself with lethal Radiation as I arrived:
http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/7729/ygb234ot1.jpg

It was really hard on me with the blood loss going around the long way
but the element of surprise was gone with the ground littered with the Dead:
http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/6089/ygb235jo7.jpg

I recognized a Loner I once knew from a few months ago where I
had met him in the Agroprom. He had taken a turn for the worse:
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/9141/ygb236zd3.jpg

I climbed back in the bed of Stalingrad and let the Soul Artifact do it's work:
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/6669/ygb237sz4.jpg

I had Reserves of 567 AK Rounds, 404 Viper, 5 Grenades and more
Medkits, Food and Anti-Rad than I normally ever carry. I was not
going to be retreating or falling back after another Wave this time:
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/268/ygb238pb5.jpg

The wind was light, the skies were overcast and I stood up listening intently:
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/2553/ygb239mq9.jpg

From the last reported sighting they should be here within the hour:
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/6694/ygb240nn5.jpg

The wind abruptly stopped and the dead silence filled the Canyon:
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5293/ygb241cx5.jpg

I switched back over from the AK to the Viper to keep them both warm:
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/4226/ygb242mi2.jpg

I checked my PDA seeing there were the routine Yantar Jobs pending:
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/2007/ygb243np5.jpg

The question was were they using the Railroad Tracks or the longer,
winding Road to travel down here? And I firmly beleived the Controllers
were gathering and drawing all their Forces from the entire Yantar Region:
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/8425/ygb244gu4.jpg

I heard a roar and quickly put down my PDA and raised my weapon:
http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/8528/ygb245za6.jpg

The Controller had surprised me and blasted me with it's Psychic Powers:
http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/8895/ygb246ka2.jpg

I must have lost consciousness briefly...I rose back up very disoriented:
http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/830/ygb247xh3.jpg

I just got the Pied Piper...know it was time to meet all the Rats:
http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/4875/ygb248mt3.jpg

The wind picked up again and the branches of the trees began swaying:
http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/1176/ygb249jv6.jpg

Surrounded by so many of the Dead and I soon heard the snarls of the Living:
http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/6045/ygb250zt0.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 2 )

I heard the distinctive growl of several Snorks approaching and fired at
them with my Shotgun but they leaped into the back of the Truck Bed
with me as they thrashed about and ripped up my Suit until I killed them:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/2417/ygb251hk8.jpg

The second one I had blasted clear out of Stalingrad's Bed with me:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5978/ygb253vu5.jpg

Only when it got suddenly quiet did you really feel the cold seep in:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/6114/ygb252gg5.jpg

I heard the Beep-Beep-Beep of my PDA announcing new arrivals:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5788/ygb254qa3.jpg

6 Zombified Stalkers approaching with 386 Viper Rounds in reserve.
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/7481/ygb255cz1.jpg

Down to 299 Rounds and they kept coming. 8 Zombies on my Mini-Map:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/102/ygb256jk4.jpg

Destroy the Zombie at Vasiliev's downed Chopper. Another
Job I would fail as I was slightly busy with 9 of their number:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/7441/ygb257ka4.jpg

I continued firing trying to hit as many of them as possible:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/7471/ygb258kz8.jpg

Wounded and bleeding I switched over to RGD-5 Grenades:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/3571/ygb259qs7.jpg

The explosion echoed violently through out the Canyon:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/7022/ygb260am2.jpg

I got out my AK to shake the coldness from it and keep it operating:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/1828/ygb261uq2.jpg

Several shots just missed me and ricocheted right in front of my face:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/8545/ygb262gp5.jpg

Even though their speaking skills were degraded they could still shoot:
http://img212.imageshack.us/img212/1059/ygb263ii4.jpg

Purge the Lair of the Snorks expired and I still had 2 Zombies to take care of:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/237/ygb264do0.jpg

I thought I had only 2 Zombies left but some stragglers kept wandering in:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/2466/ygb265xl8.jpg

Finally a moment of peace to check on my remaining Inventory.
Down to 279 AK Rounds, 239 Viper, 91 Shotgun and 3 F-1 Grenades:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5092/ygb266ms2.jpg

I was quickly looting looking at a Zombie who had been carrying
two different kinds of weapons when I was caught outside the Truck:
http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/5929/ygb267yz5.jpg

I looked up to see a figure approaching:
http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/9059/ygb268ph4.jpg

A wave of Psychic Energy enveloped me as I fumbled for my Shotgun:
http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/4218/ygb269nr5.jpg

I raised it waiting to see the white of the Controller's Eyes to fire:
http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/3799/ygb270fr4.jpg

Maybe that wasn't such a good idea:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 3 )

Most of those Zombified appeared to come from the Loner Faction:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/5079/ygb272ab5.jpg

I walked among the Dead looking for clues about the Zombified Army:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/7396/ygb273kj6.jpg

Someone or Something really wanted to retake Yantar at all costs:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/1844/ygb274hn8.jpg

I gathered all the Ammo I could and a few more Weapons to sell:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/3314/ygb275gc1.jpg

To my horror among the Dead I found some unfortunate Stalkers:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/6900/ygb276qb4.jpg

Two poor souls that had come over the rise and into the rear of the Zombie Army:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/8943/ygb277mk5.jpg

Fully loaded and wanting to report the Loner's Deaths to Sakharov, I returned
to the Mobile Lab and left behind my SVU since I had no decent amount of it's
Reseve Ammo. I switched my SPSA-14 for a Chaser 13 and quickly returned:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/4962/ygb278en7.jpg

I looked over the battlefield below and counted almost fifty dead bodies:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/4179/ygb279wf9.jpg

This many Zombies appearing in one place was no accident:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/5499/ygb280wv2.jpg

The Crystal Artifacts removed the Radiation as the Soul reversed the Blood Loss:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/5025/ygb281ci8.jpg

Even with my breathing apparatus working the Snork really stank:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/8671/ygb282xv9.jpg

Having kept the Chaser 13 warm I switched back over to my AK:
http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/5563/ygb283ie4.jpg

I was fortunate that the weather had been good and no heavy snowing:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/9163/ygb284ez3.jpg

My Exoskeleton was holding up okay at about 75% strength:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/7427/ygb285xg8.jpg

Leaves blew briefly in the wind until enough ice clung to them:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/8387/ygb286ks1.jpg

I stood in the back of the bed listening intently for any approaching movement:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/2109/ygb287wz6.jpg

All the dead around the Truck were really starting to pile up:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/8500/ygb291og3.jpg

What the Zombified Army coming down the Road saw when I was standing:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/5258/ygb290bi8.jpg

Crouching:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/889/ygb289zg3.jpg

And the low-crouch where I stayed and waited:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 4 )

I had a moment to reflect on the overall situation. While Barkeep
had wanted me to turn off the Psi-Transmission in Yantar, all the
equipment was still powered and ready to be operational. Why
had no more Ecologists arrived to further study the Psi effects?
Were they already aware of the marching of the Zombified
Army and were staying clear until conditions were a safer?

Yantar was a strange place without any apparent night and day:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/5170/ygb292um6.jpg

I had changed some of my weapons around having my Viper, two AKs
a Chaser 13 and a lot more Ammo. My Bulletproof Cap was at 46%:
http://img361.imageshack.us/img361/4438/ygb293ib1.jpg

I replaced my Soul with a Mama's Beads and raised that to 61%:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/9186/ygb294ub8.jpg

I jumped up on Stalingrad's Cab and looked below at the Zombies closest
to me. I had starting sorting a few weapons but always got interrupted:
http://img361.imageshack.us/img361/1525/ygb295ep2.jpg

If any Loners came around the corner they would probably turn back and run:
http://img361.imageshack.us/img361/7958/ygb296ls0.jpg

But the Zombies kept coming and knew no fear or dread:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/6670/ygb297zk3.jpg

This many Zombies of so many Factions could only mean one thing:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/8867/ygb298vu2.jpg

Looking at my PDA Map I could see the close proximity of Garbage
and the Agroprom with anyone venturing just beyond their range
soon falling victim to the Psi-Transmission location of Yantar with
the Train Tracks in either direction being an easy path to get here:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/9121/ygb299zt3.jpg

As always when I looked at my PDA a Controller seemed to arrive:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/371/ygb300lg0.jpg

Strangely I did not come under direct attack as this one looked
confused at all the fallen Controllers before it. I quickly reloaded:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/6190/ygb301lq0.jpg

I again was reminded that I really needed a PSO-1 Scope in Yantar:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/230/ygb302zp2.jpg

There was one in my Stash at the Loner's Camp in the Wild Territory:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/1448/ygb303sc0.jpg

As expected the Snorks scouted ahead of another wave approaching:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/6002/ygb304bw2.jpg

As I switched over to my Chaser 13 Shotgun they were right upon me:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/3343/ygb305bj1.jpg

I had learned my lesson before as the others would be here shortly:
http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/7296/ygb306rh8.jpg

Two Exoskeleton Zombies coming...three...now four counting a Loner:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 5 )

Another column of the Zombified Army was approaching.
I lined up the iron sights of my AK at the first of the 14:
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/6038/ygb311ez9.jpg

I dropped a few of them and got their number down to 11
as another one of the Zombie fired at me while crouching:
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/7075/ygb312qt1.jpg

8 left and they were now spreading about on both slopes of the Canyon:
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/1892/ygb313sv3.jpg

I reloaded another clip as more of their numbers came back up to 10:
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/665/ygb314dc7.jpg

From this angle I could see some Zombies outside the Mini-Map's 50 meter range:
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/5122/ygb315xi0.jpg

I tossed a Grenade as the Zombified Army kept coming:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6528/ygb316nw8.jpg

Their numbers down to 7 they were getting way too close for comfort:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/2712/ygb317az3.jpg

The Mini-Map said 8 but I quickly counted 10 as one aimed right at me:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/8848/ygb318gq7.jpg

The empty hot cartidges spun in the air as the Zombie and I traded
fire at point blank range with it's bullets smacking into the steel bed
of Stalingrad, as I steadied my aim right into the Zombie's skull:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6231/ygb319oe0.jpg

And the Zombies kept coming without rest so relentless in their task:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5181/ygb320nn0.jpg

I held the line all alone in the cold of winter in this Canyon filled with Death:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/3412/ygb321kf2.jpg

And more came up as their number went back up to 8 and I threw a Grenade:
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/3561/ygb322is6.jpg

And closer each time they got as they would sneak from around the tree:
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/4774/ygb323od3.jpg

Again the Mini-Map showed far less than what I could count and see:
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/6063/ygb324tx9.jpg

Zombie after Zombie I was shooting and ducking for cover seeing the same:
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/2469/ygb325up7.jpg

I had gotten them down to 5 when the Mini-Map went back up to 7:
http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/3620/ygb326hb8.jpg

Then I heard the worst sound a Stalker could ever hear in the Zone
with a click-click-click and to realize you had exhausted your Ammo:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 6 )

I dropped my empty AK and quickly got out my Viper lining up on a target:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/9279/ygb328gy8.jpg

I reloaded and noticed I still had 400 Rounds which is as many as
I had used with the AK. The Viper then got really hot and jammed:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/6883/ygb329ap1.jpg

Two were getting close so I tossed a Grenade right at them:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/6231/ygb330un0.jpg

Which turned out to be a mistake as several fallen Zombies suddenly stood back up:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/7223/ygb331mi5.jpg

6 Zombies left as I continuously kept firing:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/3087/ygb332kw5.jpg

Now 7 Zombies close as things were getting really bad. They were
using the tree as cover as they were getting higher on the slopes:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/3382/ygb333gi3.jpg

My Chaser 13 quickly greeted them but now I had 8 more around the corner:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5772/ygb334kv6.jpg

I glanced at my PDA and saw Veterans, Experts, Experienced and Rookies:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5853/ygb335xm9.jpg

The Viper kept jamming so I got out my Pistol. The UDP Compact
barked loudly in the Canyon, 2 of them dropped and I reloaded:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/5361/ygb336zb0.jpg

2 Exoskeleton Zombies came over the rise at me blasting their Shotguns:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/2636/ygb337wp9.jpg

Two well placed shots and one of the Exoskeleton Zombies dropped:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/9542/ygb338ol2.jpg

I was reloading my UDP when the pain hit me and everything starting going white:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/9284/ygb339ds3.jpg

I fumbled for my now cooled off Viper as I first saw the Controller:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4734/ygb340ub3.jpg

5 Zombies left and down to 300 Rounds:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/9232/ygb341qe4.jpg

4 on the Mini-Map left and I knew it could not detect the Controller:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/442/ygb342pj3.jpg

My Viper continued to be jerked around as I sighted on the Creature:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/7868/ygb343hy7.jpg

A Psychic Wave knocked me down again and I rose to blurry vison:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/1317/ygb344cf5.jpg

I switched to my Shotgun as the Controller got closer:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/9483/ygb345sz4.jpg

It blasted me again as I struggled to see as it had moved back away:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4219/ygb346qm2.jpg

A new PDA Contact suddenly approached and to my surprise it was a Loner:
http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/821/ygb347kt5.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 7 )

Before I could do anything...I watched the Controller turn around to
attack him, I heard a loud shot rang out and even from this distance I
could see the Loner's spray of blood from his throat as he died instantly:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/7294/ygb348ur6.jpg

I opened up with the Viper and reloaded again and again and again
until the Controller dropped and finally all the remaining Zombies.
The smoke rose up from my silenced gun drifting down the Canyon
and away up into the wind. I looked at my Inventory and saw I was
down to just 105 Viper Rounds in reserve with no more Grenades:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/7498/ygb349ub2.jpg

I waited as the seconds became minutes..the minutes became hours.
The cold and wet of winter really seeped from my Suit into my bones:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/1450/ygb350qb4.jpg

I climbed out of the protection of Stalingrad's bed and started looting the dead:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/8739/ygb351ms0.jpg

There were so many bodies piled upon each other that they were beyond counting:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/4432/ygb352ed3.jpg

I came across so many Controllers I had lost track of how many I had killed:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/6606/ygb353az6.jpg

I found Sava Parasite the unlucky Loner and took his PDA Info and Ammo:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/9004/ygb354yl1.jpg

This was the largest concentration I had ever seen of Exoskeletons
in all of the Zone except for all the Freedom & Dutyers up in Pripyat
with both sides up there having been my Friends while this was all Enemy:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/7932/ygb355hv9.jpg

I picked up a little more deadly Radiation as I ventured off the Road looting:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/5759/ygb356kp8.jpg

I looked over the Controllers, Snorks, and the Zombified Army
who had been armed with a huge variety of Ammo and Weapons:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/968/ygb357cu6.jpg

Made up of former Loners, Bandits, Dutyers, Freedomers and Mercenaries
this was the largest Multi-Factional Army that had ever marched forth in the Zone:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/5285/ygb358na0.jpg

I found a dropped IL 86 that had been fired so much it was completely worn out:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/5060/ygb359iu1.jpg

Found another brand new SPSA-14, lots more Shotgun Ammo, and more
standard Pistol Ammo which was really good since I was down to my original
Hydro reserve of 7 rounds remaining with more loot than I could ever carry:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/5397/ygb360pk9.jpg

I stood there silently waiting and waiting letting a few more hours pass
by before I finally realized there were no more of the Zombies coming:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/8800/ygb361tz3.jpg

The Zombified Army had marched to retake Yantar and had been stopped
and defeated right here and they did not get past Captain Ivantsov's Truck
he had named Stalingrad. The irony of the situation did not escape me:
http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/8536/ygb362of9.jpg

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 8 )

The enormity of the battle and the passage of several days fighting
suddenly bore down on me like a heavy weight. I slowly walked away
turning to look back at Stalingrad to make sure I was not being followed:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/1039/ygb363vx0.jpg

It was strange to see after several months of two Dutyer Guards always
standing at the entrance to the Mobile Lab when winter hit they stayed within:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/3844/ygb364mm5.jpg

I turned over the dead Loners's PDA Info to Sakharov. He said there
were no more new reports of any large movements of Zombie Forces.
I had depleted the huge pile of Ammo I had saved in my Yantar Stash.
I grabbed a few Grenades and got back out my SVU with it's meager reserve:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/7674/ygb365bn4.jpg

As I approached the Dutyers my eyes were fixed on the moving Snork on the hill:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/9179/ygb366rk5.jpg

I told the Dutyers I was headed back up to Rostok and for them
to keep a better eye on the road and the Loner's Camp nearby:
http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/1476/ygb367dx5.jpg

Leaving I met Sanyok Witcher who I told that I had added the Fuel
Stabilizer and had charged the Battery for him. The Truck was okay:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/9430/ygb368bu3.jpg

I had almost made it back to the road when my Mini-Map indicated 2
Contacts. I could see the lumbering, swaying walk ahead of a Zombie:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/1619/ygb369bw7.jpg

I tried to sneak up on him but the crunching of icy foliage gave me away:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/4251/ygb370uq3.jpg

It was a Zombified Mercenary who jerkily turned his head to see me:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/4797/ygb371zo3.jpg

We exchanged the usual type of greetings:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/5968/ygb372cr0.jpg

I turned to see another Zombie beyond the range of my Shotgun:
http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/5806/ygb373gf1.jpg

I grabbed the Merc's TRs-301 quickly sighting it and dropped the Zombie with one shot:
http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/1357/ygb374gk5.jpg

The Zombified Bandit and Mercenary had wandered into Yantar all alone:
http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/9819/ygb375rp7.jpg

I approached the Yantar Canyon and looked ahead with my Binoculars.
The Dumptruck was still surrounded with the remains of the destroyed
Zombified Army. I walked past it and over the rise and continued north:
http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/7496/ygb376vu8.jpg

As I came out of the lower Yantar Valley the skies above cleared and I
could tell day from night again. Kilometer after Kilometer I met no one
on the long road I was traveing and soon I arrived at the most southern
hills of western Rostok more commonly known as the "Wild Territory":

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Act II Part 9 )

The Wild Territory was one of the most Mutant infested Areas of
the Zone. I put away the Zombie's AK and got out my SPSA-14:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/7993/ygb378bq2.jpg

There was less than an hour of daylight left and I knew I would be
lucky to be arriving in Rostok before Midnight. If all went well that is:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/9607/ygb379ie4.jpg

I checked my PDA. It was all lit up with so many different people
wanting me to go here and there and do certain things for them:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/1483/ygb380gv9.jpg

I looked at my damaged Suits Stats. I hadn't had a good Suit
Regeneration since I had passed through this way going south:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/8448/ygb381sn1.jpg

I stepped into it and let the Burner Anomaly envelope me completely:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/1230/ygb382lu1.jpg

It felt so good to get my Bulletproof Cap back up to 75%:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/4641/ygb383nc0.jpg

I approached the Loner's Camp and saw my Friend was still alive:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/5218/ygb384yf4.jpg

Arriving at my Stash in the Loner's Camp outside the trailer
I dropped off all the Zombie weapons and made a mental note
to take all my AK Ammo & Scope the next time I went to Yantar:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/416/ygb385yk3.jpg

I continued north and went to the third floor of the unfinished building.
From the high vantage point I could see Mutants swarming everywhere.
Two Snorks spotted me and moved toward the bottom floor stairs as I
leaned over to shoot at them. I lost my balance and fell to the ground
floor where the Snorks and a Pack of Dogs surrounded me. This is
where the SPSA-14 really comes through as I got ripped up so quickly
and badly I actually had to use a few Medkits to keep from dying:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/3610/ygb386dv8.jpg

Met a couple of Bloodsuckers:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/7430/ygb387bn2.jpg

Thank You...I'll be taking that:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/9939/ygb388xr1.jpg

Ran into a few too many Rodents:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/513/ygb389vq3.jpg

Found two Loners dead with the Pseudodog that killed them:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/7558/ygb390lc2.jpg

I really needed to sell all the useless IL 86s that had been piling up:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/4492/ygb391gh5.jpg

Located a Trenchcoat Bandit and two of his Comrades:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/8/ygb392os0.jpg

Now you know what I was saving the last of the SVU Ammo for:
http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/9343/ygb393km0.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/1901/ygb394ru9.jpg

My kind of Loot. An Artifact, some Ammo and a Grenade:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5657/ygb395hr7.jpg

I heard gunfire and as I approached the Gauntlet I ran into a Loner:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4048/ygb396xv1.jpg

Found several Dead Bandits on the other side who foolishly tried to
attack the Duty Detachment. Great...now I had some Vodka & Food:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4585/ygb397wn7.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7883/ygb398jw8.jpg

I stopped by my only major Stash in the entire Zone where I used a Body:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7995/ygb399jt8.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/3448/ygb400mt0.jpg

I finally arrived in Eastern Rostok in the middle of the Night:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/2716/ygb401kl7.jpg

It felt so good to be Home but as expected it was mostly deserted:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7960/ygb402pq4.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9731/ygb403kt1.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/3664/ygb404wo4.jpg

Gave the Bottle of Vodka to Arnie and went to my Ammo & Supplies Stash:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6674/ygb405js8.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/2821/ygb406nl8.jpg

I sold him 2 of my worn out Shotguns. He had nothing I needed or wanted:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/866/ygb407vt9.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/662/ygb408zw3.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4240/ygb409kt0.jpg

"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."

Hey! On my IRL AK-47, the ejectionport and cockinghandle are on the right side of the receiver!
I never noticed they are on the left side of the weapon in the game.
That is pretty inconvenient since the firer will have a constant stream of spent casin flying past his/her face and risk hitting his/her left arm.

Is this a "feature" of the AK-74 or am I missing something?

This has been a thorn in the side of many players (myself included) since the release of Stalker.

It's not a feature, it's just how the guns have been designed.

The Government on purpose shipped all the specially made
Left-Handed Weapons ONLY to the Zone that way they can
easily track any illegal weapons that escape or were stolen.

Because, due to the nature of Tejas Slacker's story threads, posting the story in separate parts makes it easier to read and also bumps the thread up once a new part has been posted. Therefore I'm cool.

I can get to the Truck because my Zone is 40% larger than the
original Game and this is done without the use of any Mods.
Since all the NPCs and Mutants travel beyond the normal
Game Boundaries, I simply found a way to join them.

In my December Game...
There are no more Purple-Icon Stashes to discover...
No more Artifacts to find except for those at Chernobyl...
No more Missions or Jobs to do except those to end the Game...

Besides...the last 3 Stalkers who tried one died of shock at my Red Forest Stash:

Sorry for the slight bump, but...

Why is the bar devoid of loners for you again?

Did the military come through and kill them all?

Also, great story.

I got so immersed that at one point I thought I was actually playing the game, even though there were no sounds x3

The Freedom Base and barrier along with Rostok and all the Loners have
been empty for the past two months. Without any warning right before
Christmas more Freedom Troopers started arriving and the Loners once
again starting pouring back into the Duty HQ and Bar at Eastern Rostok.
The Zone is never what you expect it should be on a daily or weekly basis.

If you look at my 2013 Thread:
https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_id=15553&page=2&sec_id=11
You can see that my Zombified Stalker count went from 360 to 591 from
December 1st, 2012 to January 1st, 2013 mainly due to this Zombie Army.

We will pray the Holy Monolith for their souls to find the True Way to its Greatness .

Stepa l'Aveugle (Stepa Blind) just died 2 days ago. He became a friend in the Bloodsucker village when I handed him a medkit. He then returned to the farm (where Skull and his team once were). Thanks to him I realized that the Loners in there repeatedly assault the village to then return to the farm. Stepa survived 3 such assaults. The fourth one I decided to clean up the village before his arrival. And he died in an electro anomaly .

Thanks for reading all of my story and your kind comments.
SoC is a fantastically fun Game that you can do so much with.
I could get the Unmodded Game to roll over, sit up and bark.
It's hard to believe after playing Clear Sky that I managed to
get by for so long without a Repair Tech to fix my weapons
and have suit repair & upgrades. 2012 was a great year.

Just a reminder that anyone playing Unmodded SoC can recreate the
same conditions to take on a Controller led Zombified Army to fight
as in this Story by going over the radioactive hills to get to the Truck.

Welcome to the GSC Forums!

Actually I lost about 10,000 Screenshots on another website
that were all narrated and told many stories. I still have about
100,000 Screenshots between the 3 Games. All in cold storage.

Glad you enjoyed the Story. Antyone can recreate it in the Unmodded Game.

Unlike CoP where NPCs & Mutants will magically appear right in front of
your face, SoC has most all of them materialize in other levels where
they travel to where they are going. If you learn the places they start
and the paths they travel you can use it to your advantage. That's how
I was able to kill 100 Mercenaries in the Army Warehouses and line up
their bodies on either side of the road where you enter coming from Bar.

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/1901/ygb394ru9.jpg

My kind of Loot. An Artifact, some Ammo and a Grenade:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5657/ygb395hr7.jpg

I heard gunfire and as I approached the Gauntlet I ran into a Loner:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4048/ygb396xv1.jpg

Found several Dead Bandits on the other side who foolishly tried to
attack the Duty Detachment. Great...now I had some Vodka & Food:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4585/ygb397wn7.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7883/ygb398jw8.jpg

I stopped by my only major Stash in the entire Zone where I used a Body:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7995/ygb399jt8.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/3448/ygb400mt0.jpg

I finally arrived in Eastern Rostok in the middle of the Night:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/2716/ygb401kl7.jpg

It felt so good to be Home but as expected it was mostly deserted:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7960/ygb402pq4.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9731/ygb403kt1.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/3664/ygb404wo4.jpg

Gave the Bottle of Vodka to Arnie and went to my Ammo & Supplies Stash:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6674/ygb405js8.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/2821/ygb406nl8.jpg

I sold him 2 of my worn out Shotguns. He had nothing I needed or wanted:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/866/ygb407vt9.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/662/ygb408zw3.jpg

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:
http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4240/ygb409kt0.jpg

"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."
