didn't realize that this story was still getting read figured it had sank it to the depths of the forum
100.000$ per year, sounds like a bit to much for a soldiers pay.
I remember having a hard time thanking of a amount of pay that would seem resenable for special forces
I sort of explained how he got to the zone but at the time my writing skill were really really poor ( I thank they have improved in my second story )
Time frames roughly right after clear sky (I dont remember the year of clear sky lol)
I will continue this story after this second one or I may start trying to do both of them at once since apparently this ones still active
Found this while searching for Special Forces Salary:
Clear Sky starts in the Autumn of 2011, about 8 months before SHOC. which starts May 2012.
I like in the story that they get the assignment to go to the Zone, at the end of the Prologue, which would have to be 2009.
You then jump 2 years ahead to 2011 (I guess ), this gives you a good base for a continuing story in 2011, and the possibility to go back in time for some flashbacks & further development of the character.
There can't however, be many Clear Sky members left, Lebedev, and many others got wiped out, or taken by C-Con in the final assault at the end of Clear Sky.
I would reckon that Beanpolev, and a small remnant of Clear Sky members are still at the Swamp. Presumably they stayed behind in the Swamps to guard the Clear Sky HQ.
Since your time line is between Clear Sky and SHOC, you would have a base for quite some action, for your character.
The reason being that the Zone changes a lot in those 8 months:
Freedom relocates from Dark Valley to Army Warehouse.
Duty moves from Agroprom to The Bar/Rostock.
The Loners get more scattered, since their Base in Cordon beyond the bridge gets abandoned. Also the Loner HQ in Agroprom gets more or less abandoned
Bandits move to the Dark Valley, and setup their base there.
Mercs move in and out of the Zone according to their assignments, as they usually do
So there are many stories/event just waiting to get told
If you want, I could try to proof read your work, and try to correct some of the errors.
English is not my native language. However, I use it on a daily basis at work
