Regarding to Russian/Ukrainian names:

- second name, it ends by -vich as Sidorovich, Leonidovich, etc., as well as first name by itself is used in a friendly manner only. Never used with a rank.

- first and second names together, e.g. Oleksiy Leonidovich, are used in official manner, in military can be used between people with the same rank.

- in military, lower rank must address to a higher rank using word "comrade" in Russia, or "Pun" (the same pronunciation, that means Mr, Sir) in Ukranian with following rank, e.g. Comrade Colonel in Russia, or Mr. Colonel in Ukraine , or by first & second names in more relaxed atmosphere.

- higher rank addresses to lower rank by a rank with following second name, e.g. Soldier Petrov.

- a rank with following first & second names is used in official manner only.

- there are differences in pronunciation of some Russian and Ukrainian names, e.g. Pyotr - Russian, Petro - Ukrainian.

Did I miss anything?

I thought I'd got most of them right (and guessed correctly that Sid was a Russian) - Racemate - once the book is complete I'll need a bit of help making sure its as authentic in background stories and names as I can so any help would be useful. E-mail me any usual name combinations you can - oddly though the site I used for Russian/Ukrainian names doesn't have that many Ukrainian names lost fo Russian ones and Pyotr/Petro was only on the Russian one and I used the name for what it translates as in English

No problem.

Do you need all of the background story's names in both Russian and Ukrainian or just some? Be more specific in what you need, please. There can be, and it's probably more realistic, any combination of Russian and Ukrainian names in the story.

And give me the link to that site, please.

...About five miles north of Outpost12b was a dirty track that headed north east and joined the main road that left the area that was called the Dark Valley. The Dark Valley road curved east then north east and headed towards a bridge over the Prypiat....
---END QUOTATION---



I'm kinda lost there. Is this out of the game maps?

yeah - needed a road going east just south of Dark Valley and there's a long stretch between Cordon and Garbage I thought could have a dirt track.

edit: - just had a look at the SoC map and I mayhave to rewrite that whole section - and send them east before they cross the railway - through the tunnel from Dark Valley

I'm afraid I'm lost again.

From what I remember there's a road which bisects Dark Valley and goes from entrance to Cordon, along the bridge over kinda small swamp, passes near Lab X18, and ends at the Bandits base in Soc, or Freedom base in CS.

Am I wrong?

There's one road in DV which is the one you mentioned - it goes south to the Gate - after that it meets the road coming out of the Cordon - or rather the Cordon road meets it - the road goes south east to the river.

http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/6576/cordondarkvalleyroad.jpg

this is part of the full map of the zone that comes with one of the collectors edition.

you can see its actually a fair way from the DV exit to the Entrance at Cordon and you go by the river
