I was on my knees, I stared up at the face of a man I once knew, but that was a long time ago, a gun was now all there was between us. I was tired, I was covered in blood and it was not mine. I lived my life, I had the experience of a hundred stalkers and the knowledge of fifty scientists. Now I am at the mans mercy, it was all for nothing. I am already a dead man but I guess this is it, my life finally reaches its climax.

I was standing on the thin line between life and death...

Now then I seem to be getting ahead of myself, you are all probably wondering how I got into this situation, I guess it starts at the very beginning.

Message to the Readers and a short Teaser

To my very awesome readers (yes you, the stalkers reading this, you know who you are) I am working on the story but spend a lot of time going back and rewriting parts, fixing continuity and the like and can probably say in a totally Peter Molyneux fashion that this story is really good, awesome and totally mind blowing. Now lets take off the Peter Molyneux cap and say the story in my modest mind is pretty decent and you might enjoy it.

The story is about a man who enters the zone, not by his own choice but because he needs to save whats left of his family, who went into the zone to find answers and now struggles to survive and finds himself deciding on whether he crosses the line of becoming a killer, to abandon his past life and become a stalker or to cling on a dream of one day returning to his old life, while doubting whether it is possible. Its about falling into madness, despair and paranoia and attempting to find a way out without falling down and restarting all over again and its about finding out the truth that is trying its hardest to stay hidden, and when it is finally found the question remains on whether or not it is worth it or whether it was better when it was just a lie.

Or maybe I am just pulling your leg, regardless on whether this is an accurate description of the story or not this story gives you a pretty real perspective on life in the zone, specifically on the factions and the way they act and the way they are.

Also the Monolith faction is going into greater detail, instead of the fanatical cult that GSC showed us I am giving it more of an organized, religious like style.

Anyways thats a big and confident description to the story, I can only hope it will be appreciated as much as I think it deserves.

Anyways I will try to get a part out so you can decide what to make of it but I will give you a nice little teaser. The story has had some changes since the first teaser but it is still the same deal.

--------------------------------------/

I slid down the muddy hill, my clothes were soaked and cold, I was tired and wanted nothing more than to close my eyes and rest, but I was being hunted and that would be the end of me. I clambered to my feet, my pantlegs heavy and combersome. I ran down splashing down the muddy slopes but slipped yet again, landing on my ass and sliding over rocks and roots till I slid off a drop off and into the river below.

If I convinced myself that I was freezing before, I was wrong. I was now drifting down the river, the hunter was still after me, I knew this. I swam to the other end of the river and pulled myself out of the water, I saw the hunter, he watched me inquisitively, I assume his prey usually give up by now. I turned and ran as fast as I could but it was no use, the cold weather was wearing me down, it was starting to rain and the sky grew dark, I was running through the lifeless forest and I wasn't feeling right.

I fell to my knees breathing heavily, I heard it creeping up behind me, I was now standing on a thin line between life and death...

Well I will let you read and decide, I will continue preparing the story for release.

Updates?

Well I have been experimenting with writing styles, as this project is my new baby, the characters are good and the story is interesting but I feel I need to rewrite a lot of it and I am having trouble deciding what style I want to choose.

I am trying to get something unique but its going backwards, I am sick of 3rd person so I moved to 1st person, I like this change and on its own its fine but I wanted to do something creative so I toyed around with PDAs and recordings and such, but then it turned out way to similar to Psynexus's story so I have a lot of rewriting to do... plus it was very cluttersome and confusing looking, as if I was dragging the stalker UI into a story so I had to change that as well.

I might not officially launch this story for a while but I am writing and now rewriting every chance I get so I hope I will be able to get more work done this summer, but if not I can always hope for a christmas or even a 2012 new years release...

But preferably I want to release it sooner!
