^ Nice! I remember back in school there were a few games I was involved in making. None of them ever got close to being finished besides some of the ones I made myself, but even then it was too much work and I had to surrender it to other things.

Hell yeah, I'd enjoy being able to do something more community-involving. I've still got all this time between jobs and I feel like I've sealed myself in a tomb now that the story has an ending. I've still got some editing to do but it's more reading than writing at this point since the first two chapters are the ones that needed the most revision.

I've never been involved in any community-type writing, so any suggestions you have I'll gladly listen to.

No way in hell is that the end!!!! Keep writing its too good to stop, however also too good to spoil. At least give us some hint as to what happens and epilogue of sorts you know a reunion with Enigma and Co.
It is such a good story, great work on these latest parts.

PLEASE

The Zone: Life and Death - Into the Garbage (Day 4 revised)

http://www.thezone.randombs.net/diary/day_4.php

*Whew* this one took FOREVER - I didn't realize how much work it would be to add all these details and restructure things the way I have... Oo

Anyway - "Into the Garbage" or what you knew as "Day 4" if finally finished and posted! I put a TON of work into revising this one and I think you'll enjoy the extra details plus complete reformat I did of certain parts (most noticeably I removed the "story mode" and completely re-wrote it in the standard PDA format present through most of the story).

NOTE: Your eyes are not playing tricks on you - Day 2 has been deleted. Remember that I merged Day 1 and 2 into the same chapter and combined them as "First Entry".

I will not be swayed! You can't have it dammit! YOU CAN'T HAVE IT!!!

But wait... what is this... in my revision I included a prologue but no epilogue? Can it be that I have doomed myself to write an obligatory epilogue to wrap up certain other details that were supposed to be under the radar! MY GOD... WHAT HAVE I DONE!!! NOOOOO!

So I guess I'm writing an epilogue to add at the end of the last entry. The only question remains: what can I write about that won't foreshadow anything on a possible sequel. Any ideas before I get to it?

Okay, dont worry! Screw the epilogue, just start the sequel. ASAP!!!

Pick up where this one left off, and just go back to the stalkers trying to get by in the zone with some new factions perhaps...


Please!!!!!!

Stalking 101 & It's a Wild, Wild World (Day 5 & Entry 2 revised)

http://www.thezone.randombs.net/diary/day_5.php
http://www.thezone.randombs.net/diary/day_5_2.php

Jebus, another long one! After editing the next "chapter" it became very apparent that it was WAAAAYYY too long. So I split it into two parts. Day 5 is now split into two chapters, the first: Stalking 101, and the second: It's a Wild, Wild World.

I hope if you're reading the changes as I make them you're liking them - because it's a fuckton of work. Give me some comments so I know that I'm not epic failing a complete re-write here!

Hehe, I like your style. Tell you what, I'll give you the required epilogue somewhere between editing and give you some news on a possible sequel once I'm done. I'm trying to give myself some time to listen to the community for some ideas before I do ANYTHING else - but it's been pretty quiet around here so I'm not sure what will happen. One thing at time I suppose.

Anyway, thanks again for your input.

A better would to use would have been "editing". I'm not changing the plot at all, just certain elements that didn't fit very well together - plus grammar and spelling as needed. Any major additions/changes I make I'll make note of. I also do have a full backup of the first draft so that it will never be lost (in case I get nostalgic or something ).

I've been looking in to some online sites ti post on. So far WritersCafe has seemed the most interesting so I posted the first two chapters there. Thanks for the link, I appreciate it.

I've only re-read the first entry, personally, i would have left it as it was. Though if your targeting an audience with no knowledge of this game or it's background, i guess re-writing it is the way to go.
