American STALKER

Alright guys, I've had this idea in my head for a long time, but I finally sat down and put it to writing. It took me about a week of on and off writing to get this much, and I'm not much of a writer AT ALL, so... yeah



The chatter of multiple guns resonated throughout the mountains of Northern Pennsylvania, and the roar of a Jeep echoed as it raced and dodged old, mutated trees. A group of STALKERs had been hunting down a group of deer, but over time and radiation-tampered genes, the bucks had gained tremendous bounds in speed, agility, and concealment. Another added bonus to both deer and STALKERs was that the bucks had the ability to hold on to radiation like water in a strainer, which made them an excellent food source for Stalkers. “Come on guys! Shoot those fuckers!” Mack yelled as he swerved the Jeep to dodge a giant oak tree. “At least hit one!” *Clack Clack Clack* went Sharp’s G3, as 7.62x51mm rounds rocketed out of the barrel, hitting a deer right behind the shoulder, and dropping the biggest buck in the group. The animal stopped, but momentum carried it forward into a tree, breaking its massive neck. “Yeah-ha! “ Jay yelled “That’s how it’s done!” Mack brought the Jeep to a screeching halt, narrowly dodging another tree as 5 Stalkers jumped out to haul the massive animal into the Jeep. The bloody carcass was then lifted into the vehicle, the full 700 lbs of muscle dropping the chassis 2 in lower.

It was October 14, 2019. 3 years ago, the Exclusion Zone in Ukraine underwent a massive blowout. Immense amounts of radiation was spread throughout the world and reached every corner of the globe in only a few days. The death toll was numbered in the billions, causing every major government to collapse, allowing the Zone to swallow up the world. Least affected were rural areas in countries at least 1,500Km away from the center of the Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. Very much like what happened in Ukraine, anomalies, artifacts, mutants and STALKERs popped up in this desolate world. Major cities in America were destroyed over night, killing most of the population. The remaining population lingered at around 12,300 people. Since then, what was left of the Military reorganized in the Midwest, and many stalker groups began taking claims in the deserted cities. Afterwards, the black market thrived and many weapons began to flood the market. Bloody faction wars took place as to who would take control of the former capitol of Washington D.C. where a new country would be started under the winners’ ideal government.

Sharp, Mack, Hood, and 8 other stalkers ride on the bumpy, pot hole filled roads which were once major highways, on the way to base camp located in the outskirts of Philadelphia. They were singing merrily, drinking home brewed beer, patting Sharp on the back for the kill. Suddenly their applause came to an abrupt halt when gun fire peppered from one of the collapsed buildings outside of Philadelphia, striking Mack and 2 other stalkers. “AMBUSH!” screamed Hood as 7 stalkers hopped out, while Doc tended to Mack and the other stalkers. The attackers were soon discovered to be a small patrol from the Wolverine faction, who were hostile to all. Sharp and Hood fired, while Scharf took aim through his Remington 700 and began to pick off the hostile stalkers. “That one on the roof has a fucking AT-4, focus on him” Hood barked. The group concentrated their fire onto the man on the roof, striking him as he discharged his weapon, causing the projectile to demolish a nearby building. “Ah, god dammit, we’re losin’ Mack!!” Doc said as he tried to extract a bullet from Mack’s neck. There was no hope, though as the bullet had made its way through his Cartoid Artery, causing massive bleeding. “Fuck!” Doc screamed as he slammed his fists on Mack’s lifeless corpse. Doc sat there as rounds pinged off the asphalt, drilling a hole into Mack’s immobile chest. Then, as if an act of God, the Wolverine stalkers halted their assault and stormed off in every direction inside the city.

I approve. Definitely a nice change from the Russian names I could never pronounce.

Thanks!
Yeah, like I said, I'm not much of a writer, so I'll sit there for a good half hour just thinking of how to make a paragraph beefier.

[qoute]I approve. Definitely a nice change from the Russian names I could never pronounce.

Yeah, I was surprised that there hasn't been stories of different zones

Sweet, I like it, even though you've already managed to kill off my favorite character.

Was this a test or are you planning to right more?

Hehe, people live and die in the zone

I'll probably write another chapter, but I still have yet to think of a definitive plot
