Red Storm

(WARNING, RED STORM CONTAINS MANY SPOILERS TO BOTH SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL AND CLEAR SKY, IF YOU EITHER HAVE SEEN BOTH ENDINGS OR JUST DON'T CARE FEEL FREE TO READ BUT... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)
(OTHER NOTICE, PLEASE READ FALLEN IN THE RAIN OR YOU WILL BE LOST)
Part 1 - Radiohead
-No one saw it coming, we thought we were stopping it, but instead we unleashed it, a storm like no other, a Red Storm-

A man fiddles with the radio, cycling through channels.
"hello everybody we now go to Vlad with the weather" said a man on the radio
"hello everybody its a rainy day, expect some thunderstorms by the evening, over to you Romanov" said the weather man
"thanks and now to play this mornings song, I think we will go with 'For What It's Worth' by Buffalo Springfield.
{There's something happening here}
{What it is ain't exactly clear}
{There's a man with a gun over there}
{Telling me I got to beware}
{I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound}
{Everybody look what's going down}
{There's battle lines being drawn}
{Nobody's right if everybody's wrong}
{Young people speaking their minds}
{Getting so much resistance from behind}
{I think it's time we stop...}
A man turns off the radio
"hey I was listening to that" shouted Buffalo
"meh the noise was frustrating me" replied Beaver
"can we have some piece and quiet" shouted the Bartender
The Bartender turns on the radio and starts looking for another song to listen to.
"Ah Dirge for the Planet, love this song" said Bartender happily
{Rising up the dust}
{Barren lands are desperate to blossom}
{Dark stars strive to shine}
{I still remember the blue ocean}
{In this dying world}
"Don't you listen to anything else, this is the only song that plays in your bar" said Beaver
"And will you shut up, what do you want me to play Bob Marley?" the Bartender shouted back
{The seas overdumped}
{The rivers are dead}
{All planet’s cities turned a deserted land}
{Annihilation declares its day}
{Life slowly}
{Utters me “remain”}
"we played that in the old Freedom bar" Beaver shouted back
"do you ever SHUT UP" it was Shadow this time, since the blowout hit they were forced to sit in this small shelter with two dutyers and Bartender until radiation levels lower. IT WAS HELL.
"well we would if someone played A GOOD song" Buffalo shouted
"oh man the song is over thanks a lot" said Bartender
{Rise up this mornin',}
{Smiled with the risin' sun,}
{Three little birds}
{Pitch by my doorstep}
{Singin' sweet songs}
{Of melodies pure and true,}
{Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:" }
"YES FINALLY" said Beaver
{Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,}
{Cause every little thing gonna be all right."}
{Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a ...}
"HEY STOP THAT" screamed Beaver
{Ooh, yeah! All right!}
{We're jammin'}
"not a bad choice actually" said beaver
{I wanna jam it wid you.}
{We're jammin', jammin'}
{And I hope you like jammin...}
"OI STOP CHANGING THE MUSIC" screamed Buffalo
"ok how about this guys, why dont we sit... WITHOUT MUSIC" said Shadow, these guys have nothing better to do.
...
Beaver starts clucking his lips, Bartender starts tapping his keyboard, Buffalo starts playing with his moonlight, its glow flickering all around the room.
{There was a Buffalo Soldier in the heart of America}
"BEAVER" screamed Shadow
"fine" said Beaver reluctantly as he turned off the radio
...
{There must be some kind of way out of here}
{Said the joker to the thie..}
"BUFFALO! if I have to stop you guys one last time... Ill stab every last one of you" said Shadow
"FINE, theres just nothing else to do" said Buffalo
"Then go outside and check if the radiation levels are clear" said Shadow
"but then you won't be allowed to let me back in if they aren't" said Buffalo
"EXACTLY" said Shadow
The two Dutyers had fallen asleep a while ago trying to ignore the bickering, at first they tried to stop it but it just got out of hand.
"how about 'I' play whatever must 'I' want because its 'MY' Bar and 'I' own the damn radio" said Bartender
"how about this, 'I' play a song 'I' want because 'I' haven't bothered any of you with terrible music" said Shadow
Shadow fiddles with the radio
{I don't want to set the world on fire}
{I just want to start}
{A flame in your heart}
{In my heart I have but one desire}
{And that one is you}
{No other will do}
Shadow lays back
"see this is called GOOD music" said Shadow
{I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim}
{I just want to be the one you love}
{And with your admission that you feel the same}
{I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of}
"Is that what this is called" said Beaver
{Believe me!}
{I don't want to set the world on fire}
{I just want to start}
{A flame in your heart}
"Screw this I'm going to sleep" said Bartender
"Me too" said Buffalo
"yeah I'm out" said Beaver
As they all drifted asleep Shadow thought to himself... Good now i have the Radio to myself. But it didn't last long and it didn't matter because the computer started to beep, stating radiation levels are back to normal. At least as normal as you can get in the zone.



Please tell me how you liked it, there is more coming.

Red Storm Part 2 - The Zone that Changed

"Hey Beaver are we going the right direction" said a Freedomer, they had been walking for days in the rain.
"Use the PDA it says yes" said Beaver
"Those PDAs don't tell us if theres a bloodsucker in our way, the fog is killing me" said another Freedomer
"They used to" said the fourth Freedomer "I wonder why they don't anymore"
"probably because the MASTER stalkers believe it takes out the thrill of exploring" said Beaver "or the thrill of being killed"
"that is stupid, we payed more money to get a PDA that doesn't tell us if we are about to get ambushed" said a Freedomer
"seriously who runs these factions" said another
"hey its not all bad, look at the other features, like the contact and encyclopedia page" said another
"yeah great so i can find out whats mauling me to death when im getting mauled to death" said Beaver "or so i can find out who isnt giving a fuck while I'm getting mauled near him"

Lukash had sent two teams into the rain storm to go through the secret path to dark valley they recently found and start an alliance with the bandits, they needed this alliance so they can sneak supplies through dark valley instead of finding a harder way of smuggling it into bar.

"well when this is all over we will have half of dark valley for ourselves and the bandits get garbage, and ol' Ganja's bar will open up again and we can listen to the Bob Marley music until our ears explode" said Beaver
"think they will still roll joints" said a Freedomer
"I hope so or this is a waste of time" said Beaver
The Freedomers laughed, Lukash sent two teams because people have been going missing in rain, he would have sent more but he didnt want the bandits to think its an assault.
Snap
"you hea...." said a Freedomer just as the ground beneath him exploded, spraying the area with blood and bones.
"SHIT MINE FIELD" screamed Beaver
the Freedomers panicked and frantically searched for any mine markers, they didnt see this coming... then suddenly they saw flashes ahead of them. They quickly crouched down and waited.
"OH SHIT" said a Freedomer as a large pseudogiant charged through the mines, each exploding as he ran through.

The Freedomers opened fire emptying round after round as the creature charged them. The giant pounded the ground with its fist sending a shockwave out... activating the mines. There was a loud explosion and all went black.
Beaver got up and looked around, he saw another Freedomer, Tilik, get up.
"what happened" said Tilik
"the fucking Pseudogiant blew all the mines" said Beaver as he looked at the craters all around him.
"how are we going to get vehicles over this, the fu..." said Tilik followed by a loud crack, there was a splash of blood and Tilik fell over.
"FUCK" said Beaver, all Freedomers are familiar with the sound of a sniper rifle firing.
Crack
There was intense pain in Beavers chest as he fell over, blood pouring down his suit, he looked around as he saw shadows moving through the fog.
"son of a...." said Beaver as he fell backwards, into someones arms and all went black...

Beaver turned over in his sleep, the memory wasn't his happiest, and he still wondered if the bandits go their message, for all he knew the bandits could have shot the other team, the Bandits were getting jumpy when people entered Dark Valley, a stalker named Marked One showed up and nearly killed Borov, they were barely able to stabilize him, and the Marked One was able to fight his way out of it and escape. The bandits were ashamed of themselves for letting their leader down in the most grievous situation.

Beaver's mind then turned to Bob Marley and Joints and he slowly and happily drifted more into a deeper sleep, until he felt someone hit his shoulder.
"Wha..." said Beaver
"GUYS GUYS WAKE UP" shouted Shadow
The beeping got loud.
"look who's bothering us with his music now" said Buffalo
"NO GUYS THE RADIATION HAS RETURNED TO NORMAL" Shadow screamed
"say what" said Bartender "no shit"
The Bartender ran to his computer, he started looking through data, there was a beep on his computer as a video message was sent.

"hey man, that was one hell of a storm, I'm reading minimum life outside, guess what, the entire zone is morphing, I don't recommend leaving but hell, how else are we gunna make money" Shadow recognized the voice, it was Sidorovich, the fat man in cordon.
"Really thats interesting, what do you mean by morphing exactly" replied Bartender
"like, the zone is changing, new mutants, new artifacts, hell new anomalies, the entire zone is warping, its crazy out there" said Sidorovich
"shit you serious" said Bartender
"Ill ask" said Sidorovich, another video message popped up.
"hello hello, oh hello there Bartender" said an old voice
"Sakharov, is it true what Sid is saying?" said Bartender
"oh yes, its quite remarkable, though isn't helping my case really, Yantar is getting quite radioactive now" said Sakharov
"this is remarkable, though a little disturbing, what do you think caused the change" said Bartender
"well that might have been out fault" said Sidorovich
"You mean Marked One" said Bartender
"yes what ever happened at the Nuclear Power Plant has caused this mess" said Sakharov "and its entirely your fault"
"oh shut up you helped him too" said Bartender
"well... yes... hmm.." said Sakharov "im calling in several teams of scientists, this zone is a walking death trap and we must know all about it"
"you do that and ill see if any stalkers in the north are alive" said bartender
"and ill check the south, ill call up Fanatic and see if him and his boys pulled through" said Sidorovich "ill also call my army contacts, this will be top news inde... OH SHIT"
"what is it" asked Bartender
"Sakharov are you reading this" said Sidorovich
"yes yes I'm... oh dear" said Sakharov "that is not good"
"what is it?" asked Bartender "whats happening"
"well you see" said Sakharov "the zone... has expanded"

Only a Shadow of Chernobyl spoiler in the first two, and its not TOO bad. The only clear sky reference in the first two is they mention the Freedom Bartender, so you can read those two. But after that no, if you want watch finish Clear Sky

Red Storm Part 3 - Desertion

(This is the longest one I made, second being the last)


It was cold and dark, the storm had passed, the radiation was lowering with every step he took, it was a long day full of death and destruction, but what else was a stalker expecting.

---OWL---
The rain was pouring, many stalkers hated the rain, calling it a bad omen, cursing at its every drop, but it wasnt to Owl, to him it was a gift. Owl lived alone, all alone in one of the only fertile patches in the zone, Owl lived on a farm he rebuilt, restocked and fortified all by himself, noone helped him so why should he help them, he hated the people who take this place for granted and the people who loved this place too much, it is what it is, its a new world and a slow death, people should stop calling it extremes and learn to accept that.
He looked over at his crops, he rarely went anywhere near civilization, in this world and the next, he was fine by himself, he fought with others only to get attached to them before they died, but not now, now he had no one, he had nothing but his crops and his trusty Kalashnikov, an old 47, he sat on his porch, his home fortified, complete with barbed wire, turned over trucks, a wall to high to jump and a gate, it was his home.
Inside his home it was well furnished supprisingly, there was food in the fridge, a tv, radio, a comfy couch and a big cushioned bed, it had a record player and a bath tub with working water, it took him a while to figure out how he would get that, but now he was relaxed, the rain watered his crops assuring he always had food to eat, though he always expected that the radiation was helping his crops grow because they grew fast and big.
His crops were of wheat, potatoes and strawberries, all he ever needed, he would cook the potatoes for dinner and have bread with strawberry jam for breakfast and lunch, he had nothing like this luxtury back in Moscow and now he was finally in a place he wanted, he went occasionally to the Bar for supplies, being an ex-duty he was always welcomed, he himself helped them clear out the bar as well as the agroprom research center, the old duty base.
His supplies being vodka, several other foods for when he was sick of his every day meals and other foods, hell Bartender made so much money from selling food he start importing more just for Owl, he even suggested sending stalkers over to deliver. Owl said when hes too old to get it himself he would do that, but at the moment it was a nice thrill exploring the deeper areas of the zone again. Bartender and that old dog Sidorovitch made there deals with the Military so they wouldnt bother his little farm while on patrols, he owed them for that, he bought a PDA like theirs, long range, able to reach most of the zone with its contacts and communication system.
He would look at it and remember fond memories of his stalker life, sometimes he would have fun seeing where stalkers were, laughing at the ones who would be running really fast across his pda, he assumed they were being chased by dogs or a sucker or one of those silly mutants he used to worry about. He however became quite interested when he started seeing stalkers heading north, whatever sent them up there he was curious about, the north was a place where your brain melts, young uns always believed there were increadibly gold mines of artifacts, instead Owl believed there were vicious beasts beyond imagining up there.
The real suprise was when they were popping up in Pripyat and the NPP and even Limansk and the old hospital, he nearly fell of his chair that day, it was a miracle, they found a way to the center of the zone, but that was when it hit. He watched as an interesting little dot labelled Marked One, who became his favorate entertainment, staying up late watching him run from dark valley to yantar and constantly returning to the ol' bar suddenly went straight for the scorcher, and then came out and ran north, he then was seen shooting his way through Pripyat as several dots blinked off the screen, he suddenly lost focus as he saw Limansk was again full of stalkers, there were thousands of little dots disapearing, he stared and stared having trouble finding Marked One again.
Then he saw him, a little dot called Marked One running across the bridge to the NPP, there were little monolith dots and and even military dots fighting up there and he saw Marked One running to the power plant. He quickly called up Bartender.
"Hello? Owl you ol' dog what are you up to?" said the familliar voice of Bartender
"Is what im seeing on my PDA real?" said Owl shaking
"wha.. oh yeah you mean the center, of course" said Bartender "have you seen Marked One by any chance?"
"yeah ive seen him running back and forth for you" said Owl amazed "he just entered the Sarcophagas"
"really wow, i knew he had the stuff" said Bartender "with all this fighting though it looks like business is going to be sour for at least a week"
"yeah I hear you, theres no one at all in wild territories, even garbage, you would think bandits would attempt to take over now everyones distracted, and hell even cordon is empty" said Owl
"yeah but when offered endless riches or even better a wish..." said Bartender
"hmm three dots just appeared in Wild Territories, out of nowhere" said Owl
"yeah that happens, oh and it looks like there coming here, possible customers or there heading north" said Bartender
"well good luck getting rich off those artifacts, its almost time for my supper" said Owl
"good luck in your 'Retirement' see you later" said Bartender
So it was really happening, he hoped he would see it but he was too far away to reach it and decided that supper smelled good. He was barely finished his meal when there was a loud bang. The Geiger counters he placed throughout his home started to tick rapidly and the sky went red.
"SHIT" said the old man as he grabbed whatever food he could as well as ammo for his AK-47 and he ran down into his shelter. It was dark and he nearly broke his neck coming down the stairs, he turned on his flashlight and headed downstairs. He found his old suit, a stalker suit with several upgrades and chainmail protection as well as an trench coat made of leather and mail. It had great protection against anomalies and radiation as well as animals and guns, he put it on, it seemed to fit right despite its weight, he put on his gas mask and attached the oxygen tanks, he didnt turn them on because he always saved them for emergancies. He then attached his PDA to a slot on his wrist and turned on his flashlight, after that he proceeded to go down two more levels, he built his shelter to be strong.
In his shelter there was a cupboard full of medicine and several coolers for storing food, he also had a fireplace that went to the surface, it was opened with a touch of a button, he kept it closed, there was a feather bed and a nice comfy rocking chair, he also had a radio. He turned on the radio and leaned back on his chair, finishing his supper and pulling over a blanket as he went to sleep.


---S/B/B---
The six of them stared at the screen in disbelief, they all raised their guns, even Bartender found a shotgun for the occasion and they opened the vault door carefully, the sweet smell of fresh air and open vodka bottles filled the vault, they slowly walked up the stairs, ever vigilant for a stray mutant or bandit hiding in the bar, it was an odd thing to do in the heart of duty territory but it needed doing, they found themselves in the bar again as the two dutyers went to secure their posts and the doorway.
"Well its safe outside, the place is nice and I thought I heard people, several shouts, Ill resume my post by the door" said the Dutyer
"well I had enough of you three now get out of my sight for a while" said Bartender and with a slight touch 'Dirge for the Planet' turned back on the radio.
The three of them walked outside, Shadow looked at Beaver and saw that most of the mud was washed off, the shock of being free of that bunker probably was the only reason the dutyers didnt notice.
"Beaver your suit" said Shadow
"oh man! this was a new suit" said Beaver
"NO your suit, if the dutyers see that they will shoot you and it would have been a waste of time putting up with your crap" said Shadow
"oh shit" said Beaver "well what do I do?"
"How should we know" said Buffalo
Shadow punched Beaver and he fell into a pile of mud.
"what the fuck was that for" said Beaver
"the dutyers wont bother you now" said Shadow
"you were waiting for the chance to do that werent you" asked Buffalo
"hell yeah" said Shadow with satisfaction
They heard some dutyers talking.
"I know we have to help them but we also have other more important duties to attend to, we are here to stop the zone not save the wounded, the zone is out of control and this is what we prepared for, we cant just wander off on what could be a trap or spend resources arriving too late" said a voice, Vironin, Shadow did business with him.
"But they said they were caught in the explosion and need help, we MUST help them or we're letting the zone take their lives" said another
"we simply do not have the resources or the manpower to do that, that explosion nearly wiped out all our stalkers" said Vironin "dont you forget that Dirov"
"Well im not going to let them die, if Duty wont help them then I will, and whoever else wants to help me can feel free to" said the Dutyer Dirov
"you are my second in command, what kind of example on the men are you making, this is mutiny" shouted Vironin
"well then Duty doesnt need me and I dont need it, if we are going to abandon those who need it than we have falled from our path, I am leaving and anyone who wants to follow may follow" Dirov screamed out not just at Vironin but the gathering crowd, he wandered off some of the crowd following.
"wow" said Beaver "Duty just split in half, we have to report this to Lukash"
"lets get out of here while the crowd is distracted" said Buffalo
The three of them snook past the gathering crowd and headed for the old army warehouse path, they saw the same Dutyers who left duty, led by a tall man in an Exoskeleton, he assumed he was Dirov, walk towards the old Wild Territories path.
It wasnt as evenful after that, they walked through the army warehouse region, taking note that large sections of field were ripped and ravaged, huge crators and ditches were all along the old gentle fields. When they reached the Army Warehouse it was as calm as it ever was, they passed the old farmstead and the path to the Bloodsucker village as well as the old debris pit, they reached the entrance to see another grim sight.
Military, lots and lots of military, the Army was taking control of the warehouses and a large amount of freedomers were leaving the base, it seems that the military spared them if they agreed to abandon their base.
"this isnt good, if the military chokes down on the zone any more than we are going to have a major crisis on our hands" said a Freedomer
"yes but if we dont deal with the fact we are homeless at the moment we will not last the night" said Lukash, another old employer of Shadow
"but we need to act!" said the freedomer
"but as I said earlier we lost our numbers, our bases we have NOTHING" said Lukash "our first order of business should be heading to the dark valley, the bandits are our allies and we can set up their for a while until we get our own base"
"BUT WE CANT LET THEM DO THIS" shouted the freedomer
"CAREFUL WHO YOUR SHOUTING TO MILOV, THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO FIGHT BACK, I MADE MY POINT SO EITHER YOU ACCEPT IT OR YOU GET OUT OF MY FACE" shouted Lukash
"well if you wont do anything about it I will, WHO WANTS TO SHOOT THESE BASTARDS FOLLOW ME IF NOT STAY AND PLAY THE PATHETIC LOSERS AND HOPE TO GOD THE BANDITS LISTEN" said Milov
The crowd dispersed, what was happening, another storm hits and these factions just break apart like they were made of sand. The three of them walked towards the remainder of Freedom.
"yeah what do you want now" said Lukash "wait a minute, Beaver? I thought you died when the minefield blew"
"yeah I thought I did too, only a sniper took me out" said Beaver "I was captured by those Red Flag bastards"
"the Red Flag, where did they take you?" Lukash asked
"Limansk, got busted out by Duty only to be hostages and dragged through a war, we barely got out with our lives" said Beaver "we spent some time in bar, got trapped when that blowout his and just escaped"
"yes i would have asked why you didn't join the fight if the explosion didnt hit, we lost almost everyone" said Lukash grimly "and now the survivors decide to split up and that will solve all our problems"
"more or less good news, the Dutyers also split, because of a distress call and half of them didnt want to go help em" said Beaver
"yeah cant wait to hear who else split, seriously just because we have a third explosion doesnt mean the zone has to change" said Buffalo "well at least not our way of life"
"he has a point but its sadly not the truth" said Lukash "wait a minute, Shadow is that you?"
"yeah, my story is the same as his by the way" said Shadow
"as is mine" said Buffalo
"all captured" said Lukash "never expected you of all people to end up in a cell Shadow"
"yeah lifes been great" said Shadow, who just realised it had been raining the entire time "and what is with this damn rain"
"yeah its been getting stressful" said Lukash "we should get going now"


---Owl---
Owl woke up, hmm he over slept, he walked outside before remembering the blowout, quickly checking the rad level, it was fine so he walked upstairs, his meal was ruined, he checked his fridge and found most of the food had gone bad, even worst his crops took a beating, but they were stubborn little devils and held onto their life, it was raining so he didn't need to water them, sligtly worried about acid rain but decided he had a major dilema now, he needed to restock.

He walked back downstairs and grabbed his AK-47, stocked up on ammo, grabbed an old Revolver, he never remembered the name and walked out, quickly running back in to grab a loaf of bread and some medkits, he had to leave prepared, he took his keys and locked both the door and the gate before setting off to the zone.

The walk was different, he thought he was going senile but then he realized the fields were starting to get warped and he was getting worried, he didn't bother check the size of the blowout, for all he knew it could have warped the entire zone, with that thought he put his hand by his holster. He forgot how much he hated these trips.
He finally reached the dark valley path, an old path he found a few years ago that leads safely to Army Warehouse, he walked through it seeing several holes in the ground, someone blew up the whole minefield, well thats one less problem to worry about. He kept walking until he suddenly stopped, he heard something... he saw a stalker running through the fields to the south, he saw him running and screaming.
"GET AWAY ITS COMING RU...AHHHH" the stalker screamed as a large bird, almost like a vulture or a crow swooped down and carried him up into the air and drop him.
He landed with a painful crunch as his neck, spine and legs were broken, the bird swooped down and start to peck and eat at him, Owl slowly crept away as he saw smaller crows swarm the body. He saw Rostok just ahead and carefully crept beside the ruined buildings and climbed the fence.

He entered the Bar finding less than a quarter of the original population wandering the streets looking grim, most of them had there masks on so you couldnt see their faces, something uncommon, most people want to see other people in this place, not faceless masks that remind them of the horrors outside of the bar. Owl found himself entering the bar.
"I said come in do... Owl what a pleasant surprise" said the greeter "its an unusual time for you to show up"

"I know, the journey was too much for my old bones to handle" said Owl, he saved that kid's life in garbage about a year ago, helped him get to the Bar and even got him a job there.
Owl walked down the steps into a dimly lit bar, it was crowded, but there was no talking at all, everyone seemed to be staring depressingly at their drinks, was that storm THAT bad?

"Owl a pleasant surprise, here for supplies" said Bartender
"yes, that blowout wiped out my stock" said Owl "business catching up?"
"yes, that 'blowout' was so powerful it wiped out half the stalkers in the zone, a lot of friends died, people are drowning their sorrows in vodka" said Bartender
"how big was it?" asked Owl
"it was slightly smaller than the second Chernobyl explosion" said Bartender
"my god" said Owl, it was all he can say
"even worst it not only affected the zone, but the stalkers as well" said Bartender "Duty has split and it is rumored that Freedom and the Bandits have, how can the Bandits split is beyond me"
"this is terrible, and to think we once believed the zone was secured" said Owl
"on better news the scientists are having a field day" said Bartender "the Scientists are the dominant faction in the zone, Sakharov brought in a lot, they are even expanding the Yantar lab, adding two more bunkers and an underground, as well as having two military squads to defend, they refortified"
"well the mutants go stronger, I just saw a very large crow grab a stalker and drop him several feet in the air" said Owl
"yes, stalkers have reported frightening new beasts, they are arguing over naming em" said Bartender "for instance, theres a rumor of a mutant that can cause a persons brain to explode at a mere glance, the stories are incredible but they are probably false.
"I hope" said Owl as he grabbed the supplies from Bartender "good luck, feel free to call me about how this 'Great Depression' is will ya"
"will do, see you later owl and do be careful" said Bartender

---Mikhael---
It was a dark room, it was an office in Kiev, now part of the expanding zone Mikhael looked out the windows of his office, he wore an old soviet officer's uniform, he was once a great and renowned General, now he is something more, his uniform painted red and gold which was fitting, his office had a large Soviet flag as well as a hammer and sickle statue, he was the leader of Red Flag and was in the new headquarters, their position in Limansk and Pripyat had been compromised, and it was only a matter of time until their base in Chernobyl was discovered too.
"you called Comrade Mikhael" said Khalepski, his finest general
"yes comrade Khalepski, the plan went accordingly, we now have complete control of Kiev, the zone will expand and with it our control" said Mikhael
"there was some resistance, and our prisoners escaped" said Khalepski cautiously
"damn, we can find them later, but first we must hunt the elusive... Wendigo... it holds the key to our conquest, we must also find Strelok, find the whereabouts of Ghost and Doc, we must also find Guide, Forester and Owl, of course no need to worry about Fang, our assasination went according to plan, though the assassin didn't make it out alive"
"all resistance in the zone has crippled, our enemies the stalkers had split, the survivors dwindling, the plan is going well" said Khalepski proudly
"remember, the hunter must follow the prey carefully only when it has truly been cornered may the hunter strike, remember that and when the world is taken by the zone, only then may we strike, take out the vital organs and the rest shall follow" Mikhael said before dismissing him
He stared into the pouring rain, thunder clapped, the day was ending, the first successful day in 30 years...

Red Storm Part 4 - Borov is Busy

---Strelok---
He had escaped the zone and discovered the truth, he found himself lying in the old Ukrainian country-side and was relaxing and breathing in the nice clean air, he got up and found the road, as he said to himself earlier, he did not know if what he did was right, but he made it and he figured thats all that mattered, he thought of his friends, sadly he doesn't remember anything about them other than their names and how they died, Ghost and Fang...

He remembered his meeting with Doc and was curious about where he went, he suddenly heard a car. He ran to the car and paid the driver to take him to the nearest airport, he looked in his wallet to find himself staring at a seemingly impossible amount of rubles, but the average man has never been to the zone, they know nothing of riches.

He took the plane out of the Ukraine, it brought terrible memories, he found him self traveling until he bought a nice apartment in Moscow, he relaxed on his couch with a bottle of vodka he drank for drinking sake instead of survival and turned on the TV, it was a horrible site, bright lights over the zone, the zone had expanded and engulfed Kiev and several nearby towns, he dropped his vodka in suprise.. he had not expected this, or maybe he did and was too thrilled at the fact he was free, he quickly picked up the vodka and got a towel to clean up the mess and went to sleep worried, maybe the C-Concious were right and he destroyed the worlds chance of survival... he drifted off asleep.

The next morning was cold, winter was coming, the rain was pouring like it was for a week or so, he was sitting in a cafe wearing a long coat, he was going to get a job, he needed one to take his mind off of bloodsuckers and pseudodogs and all the other freaks of nature he encountered, he got up and grabbed his suit case before heading for the door, he walked half way down the street when the cafe behind him blew up and he dived for cover and pulled out his trusty desert eagle 'Big Ben' and looked around, people on the street were staring at him as he quickly stowed away his pistol, several police officers quickly showed up and dispersed the crowd, he got up and walked down the street, then he saw it... several men in long trench coats were following him, they wore black stereotypical Russian fur hats, they didn't even bother taking their eyes off of him.

He turned into an alley and saw them quickly turn the corner, he turned the corner pulled out his gun and waited. They turned the corner and he right away unloaded two shots, each hit their hearts, he quickly fled the scene. Who the hell were they, he thought he was free but something told him he was wrong, he ran back to his apartment making many detours in case he was followed, he would not sleep easy tonight...

---Owl---
Owl made it home, uneventful compared to last and he loaded his fridge with food, he pulled out a steak, something he hasn't eaten in years and put it on a frying pan, he heard the sizzling and took a deep whiff of it and waited for it cook, he found that Bartender also got him bbq sauce, he decided to pour it over with some sea salt and black pepper, this would taste good.

He thought of that young stalker as he was killed by the bird, maybe he should have done something, maybe he couldn't, but the look in that young man's eyes did frighten him, he was also worried about those birds, he never thought of birds when designing his fortification, he might have to build a big net over his home... but those talons, barbed wire and steel wire Owl thought maybe.

He went downstairs and got his barbed wire and steel wire out and started to make a giant net, covering his entire farmstead, it was hard work but he liked hard work before an afternoon snooze, so he got to work, he finished and was delighted by how well it worked out, and so he got his vodka out and went over to his rocking chair and went to sleep...

---Doc---
Doc was out walking his dog, he was looking at the distant trees across the lake, that storm was incredible, he barely survived it, he decided he will be careful, he brought his dog home and sat down by the lake, he was humming to himself when he felt a gun aimed at his chest.
"Get up" said the voice
He did as he was told.
"Turn Around" said the voice
He did as he was told again. He saw a well armed man holding a deadly looking pistol, a silencer attached, he had a very cold and bloodthirsty look to his eyes and he stared at him almost in disbelief, Doc didnt understand what was so disbelieving about him.
"Your Doc? said the voice
"um yes last time I checked" said Doc, he was quite confused
"you cant be, i was sent all this way for you" said the man "you can die any minute now, why do I have to kill you"
"Kill me? why would anyone have to kill me" said Doc, he was still confused, and worried
"well I guess I gotta do what I'm payed to do" said the Assassin as he raised the pistol into an aim, turned the laser sight on and cocked the pistol. The next thing doc saw was the man throw to the side, a big fluffy shape on top of him.
"good boy, now ill get your food in a minute" Doc added as the dog began to bark at him "first I got to dispose of the body"
Doc hauled the body away and buried him, his dog was a great friend and was always there when he needed him but he figured it would be safer to take the assassin's pistol. The fact anyone wanted to hunt him was worrying, but his thoughts went elsewhere...

---S/B/B/L---
They walked and walked, the rain pouring they wandered until they found a gruesome sight, a body, ripped apart almost surgically, they kept moving along the path destroyed by mines and headed for the dark valley and the area they once called home, they arrived there at nightfall to see the Bandits had heavily fortified the place, but a light in a building across the street caught Beaver's Attention.
"I'm going to check that building out" said Beaver "I'll catch up with you"
"ok don't get killed" said Buffalo as the group continued
They reached the gate and knocked.
"Who goes there" said a bandit
"Lukash of Freedom, we need to see Borov" Said Lukash
"Borov is busy" said the Bandit
"can we wait inside, its awfully cold out here" said Lukash
...
"fine, but if you try anything" said the bandit
"a thousand bandits will shoot us right, we are allies" said Lukash
The gate opened, it was Bar all over again, the place was almost deserted, bandits were more numerous though they were poorly equipped, they walked in grimly.
"you here to see Borov" cried another bandit
"yes" Lukash Replied
"good hes ready to see you" the bandit called to them
The group separated, the Freedomers waited at the bar as Lukash, Shadow and Buffalo proceeded to Borov's Office, it was an old place with barred windows, the door was guarded by two guards and on the inside there were two more guards, Borov had a Spas-12 on his desk in front of him, it seems the rumors were true about him being jumpy.
"Freedomers return to the dark valley in the shittiest of times, what is it your here for" said Borov
"The military took our base and our members are split, we need shelter until we can secure a base" said Lukash
"well you are welcome here if you help us our, our members split as well, the Renegades they now call themselves, reusing an old bandit clan title, they when off to set up in the garbage region" said Borov grimly
"any word of the others, I was told that duty also split" Lukash asked
"yes, the Exiles they call themselves, abandoned their duties quite literally they now aid the weak, the weak die for being weak they don't need saving" said Borov "and your old friends, Insurgents they call themselves, they now just raid military patrols, oh yeah and the Stalkers reformed"
"stalkers reformed?" asked Buffalo
"a year ago the loners formed a faction called the Stalkers, just any stalker could join, they fought us and the military attempting to free the zone for all stalkers, killed a lot of us and forced us out of our old base" said Borov with a tone of anger
"what happened to them? like why did they have to REform?" asked Buffalo
"the bloody zone they fought to free destroyed their base, mutants swarmed the old farm and they were disbanded" said Borov
"well the 'Exiles' have set up in Wild Territories, right next to duty, the Insurgents took the old path to foresters camp in red forest" said Borov "the stalkers are in Agroprom, feel free to stay, just make sure your men carry their own wait and pull through on their end"
"what about that house across the way" asked Shadow
"that old house?, we avoid that" said Borov "Thats bloodsucker territory"
They sat in silence after he said that...

Red Storm Part 5 - Soulsucker

---Mikhael---
It was a cold windy day as the sun was rising, it took some getting used to, staring at the dead city of Kiev, it was only a couple days ago packed with people, now they are dead and their bodies mass buried. Mikhael stared as his plans succeeded, but something was amiss, the door opened behind him as a soldier marched up to him, salutes and then proceeds to give him yesterdays report.
"so anything go as planned" said Mikhael hardly looking at the report
"um... yes and no sir" said the soldier, he was worried
"what does that mean" asked Mikhael
"well... no one has found our base in Chernobyl, and the zone expands, our enemies are fractured and Freedom has just disappeared, we can't find where they relocated, we assume them dead... but... our Assassins we sent after Strelok, have been found dead in Moscow" He swallowed
"well Strelok is a master stalker of course he wont be caught with his pants down, what about the other Assassin we sent? the one after the old man?" asked Mikhael, his eyebrows raised
The soldier hesitated "he... disappeared sir...." he said slowly
"WHAT!" Mikhael screamed "Strelok I understood, but the old, delusional man survived"
Mikhael reached into his desk and pulled out an old Tokarev, the Soldier stared at it in fright.
"WHO HIRED THE ASSASSINS" Mikhael screamed at the soldier
"um... me sir" he wished he didnt say that
"that saves me some trouble" Mikhael said calmly as he unloaded three rounds into the man
He then clicked a button on his desk "theres a mess I need you to clean up" he said and two guards came in, stared at the body for a moment then carried him away, one more body to hide...

---Beaver---
Beaver looked around, the building was dark and empty, like most buildings in the zone, there was also a stairway leading downstairs and upstairs, the light came from upstairs so he decided to go up, he walked up the steps and turned into the room with the light.

"GET AWAY, YOU WONT HAVE MY SOUL YOU WONT" said a voice
The room came into focus, Beaver stared in shock, there was blood and bodies all over the place, the walls and hell even the roof was red and dripping, in the corner there was a man covered in blood, he was holding a shotgun and under all the blood Beaver noticed something, Freedom colors.

"Its me Beaver, I am from Freedom as well, I am investigating the source of the light, if you want me to leave I will" said Beaver
"NO IT WILL KILL YOU, IT WILL KILL ME IF YOU LEAVE" He shouted in fear
"Please don't leave me here" he added in a small voice
Beaver raised his weapon and looked around.
"I already killed them" the man said pointing behind Beaver
Beaver turned around slowly and saw what he was talking about... Bloodsuckers, five bloodsuckers to be exact.
"Holy shit fucking hell" Beaver said, he hated them ever since his encounter in the swamp
Beaver backed into the room next to the other man and crouched down in the corner. Then he heard it. The most horrible noise he had ever hear.
ROOOOARALRAOOOR
"FUCK HES BACK" screamed the man as he raised his shotgun
Beaver raised the Ruger LCP he was given and stared at the door way, preparing for what he was about to see.
What he saw he wasn't prepared for and probably never going to be prepared for. The Beast was slightly larger than a bloodsucker, it had more tentacles and on its hands the claws were larger and it had strange suction devices that Beaver did not want to imagine what they were for.
The thing ran at them with incredible speed and they fired at the thing. It grabbed the man with its hand and it started to pulsate, the man was getting whiter with each pulse. Beaver kicked its head and it turned let go of the man and grabbed him, the claws seemed to retract when it wanted to let go, it clasped his leg with them and threw him by swinging and letting go, he flew into the wall with the bloodsucker corpses, the thing pounced on him.
Cracka-cracka-cracka
The beasts head blew open and it fell on top of Beaver who was swearing under his breath, he turned to look at his saviour, a man in sky blue camouflage and a black vest and mask.
Beaver had seen that uniform before, back at the marsh a year ago, when he left that pipe he hid in and found his friends being guided through the swamp by a man in the same colored armor.
"who are you" he asked
"I am Gregor, Leader of Clear Sky Reborn" said the man

---S/B/L/B---
Borov looked at them, "he is dead then, we have seen many men march to their deaths there, the bloodsuckers there are powerful, he never stood a chance" he told them
"Bull Shit" said Shadow "I don't believe that"
He and Buffalo left Borov's office and walked outside
Lukash was granted his own office, a train car they moved into the camp, he set up and worked like an embassy for freedom in this base, the bar was ok for a bar not owned by freedom, it played polka music all day, not something you would hear in a freedom bar.
"He cant be dead" said Buffalo
"I know, and thats why I'm going to check" said Shadow as he pulled out and loaded his Colt 1911
"Then I'm going with you" said Buffalo pulling out his Taurus PT92
"Fine then you cover the rear" said Shadow
"Why the rear, the first person to die is always at the rear so the group doesn't know they are under attack until its too late" argued Buffalo
"I always thought that it was the person in the front who always dies first to show how dangerous the situation is" replies Shadow
They both stepped outside of the gates, they noticed it was raining again. They raised there weapons and charged the building and burst through the door, they smelt fresh blood.
"SHIT" they both screamed as they ran up the stairs, turned the corner and came through raising their guns.
"Hello" said Beaver happily "nice of you to join us"

---Strelok---
Strelok stepped outside, it was still raining the next day, he walked to the office across the street and went into the elevator, no more cafes he thought to himself as he rode it up to the top, the CEOs office, it would be a nice interview, simple and straightforward he thought, though his background didn't really make him suitable for this kind of work, he would be working a nice job that he hadn't done in a long time. Honest Work.
"hello" said the CEO "you are Mr. Strelok I presume"
"yes, Mr. Vildrid" said Strelok
Mr. Vildrid was the CEO of a major corporation dedicated to the production of armored suits, something Strelok new a lot of, though his work on them had been amateur.
"So let me get straight to the point, you believe you can work for us, in production of the new state of the art survival suits why?" asked Mr. Vildrid
"well I know all work I have ever done on these suits are amateur but I had spent a couple years surviving in these suits" Strelok said, straight to the point indeed
"really, now that is interesting, your one of those stalkers" said the CEO
"Ex-Stalker I prefer despite how hard it is to realise that" Strelok said
"just like old war veterans I see, hard to return to an honest mans work" said the CEO, those lines were well thought of "we are short of testers, honest ones though, the ones we had stole our suits and headed to the zone"
Strelok found that funny, most stalkers come to the zone with barely a shirt on and some smart buggers decided, why do that when you can steal a prototype suit from a major corporation by pretending to work for them... that seemed so familiar... he pushed the thought away.
"well its hard to take your mind off of it yes but it will come to pass" Strelok said "thats where you come in"
"yes work is the best way to take your mind off of the past" said the CEO "welcome aboard, you start officially tomorrow but you may get aquainted to the area today if you wish"
"Thank you sir, I will probably check the place out for a while" said Strelok
Strelok wandered the building and saw many sights in the lower levels, where he would be working, it was like walking into Q's Lab in one of those Bond films, films seemed so long ago... The suits were being hit by everything, men with Groza's, men with Flamethrowers, electrical devices, axes, knives, Strelok even thought he saw an RPG-7 but he decided it was best to keep moving.
He finally found the Beta testing, Alpha testing he assumed was what he just saw, he saw several men walking into a 'LIVE' anomaly, he remembered hearing Lab created anomalies weren't as strong as the real zone anomalies, and they didn't last long, but it was still quite frightening, there was also a lot of paper work.
Strelok thought to himself that honest work and stalker work was hardly any different these days, he walked up and found several artifacts being tested, he decided to investigate.
"what was this one again" said one of the scientists holding up an artifact Strelok recognized, a Mica
"dunno maybe a Jellywig or a..." said the other scientist as Strelok cut him off.
"thats a Mica, handy little devils, stops you from bleeding at the cost of radiation" said Strelok
"and who the hell are you" asked one of the scientists
"I'm Strelok... the new guy in beta testing" Strelok replied
"oh a new guy, who do you think you are, how would you know more about artifacts than us" the other scientist asked
"well anyone who spent more than a day in the zone would know what that is" said Strelok
"oh a stalker, more of them..." The scientists rolled there eyes
"at least I had the balls to explore and see it in the field, instead of sitting in a lab mistaking a Mica for a 'Jellywig' great scientific discoveries you two, keep up with the Nobel Prizes" and with that last remark, Strelok smugly walked back into the elevator, fools he thought, he should be on that research department...

Red Storm Part 6 - Assassin

---Mikhael---
The soldier nervously looked at Mikhael waiting for orders, there was still a cleaner wiping his predecessors blood from the floor.
"I have a job for you soldier, don't disappoint me" said Mikhael "I need you to hire some mercenaries, their objective is no longer to kill but to capture"
"yes sir, at once" said the soldier
"and the search for the Wendigo goes?" asked Mikhael
"it is proving difficult to track, we have three mercenary squads hunting it" said the Soldier
"good, at least its progressing, money is not an option, get the best" said Mikhael
"yes sir at once sir" said the soldier as he was dismissed
Mikhael stared out into the stormy sky above the dead city Kiev, Strelok was in Moscow, he was a dangerous one who took out two assassins before they even moved their hands near their guns, and Doc somehow weaseled out of his assassin, Guide and Forester must not be so lucky.

---Forester and Milov---
Western Red Forest was a maze, it was thick and full of anomalies and mutants ranging from dogs to extraordinary new discoveries, to the north, Forester got up and went outside, he lets stalkers set up outside, helps him feel safe some days, the new group were some men who called themselves the Insurgents, ex-Freedomers and hated the military, Forester neither hated nor loved the military and never really had time for the Anarchists.
"hello" he said merrily to the Insurgents
"hello Forester, thank you for accepting us, we have no where to go to" said the Insurgent Leader, Milov
"no problem, Its nice having company from time to time" said Forester "now I heard an interesting tale from a passing mercenary squad yesterday about a massive beast capable of ripping a person to pieces and could freeze a man's very soul with its fearsome breath, now that would be an interesting beast"
"believe the story?" asked Milov
"well you can never be too sure in the zone, some of the most unrealistic tales end up being true" said Forester as he walked merrily to his tent
Milov watch as a Mercenary walked down the road and towards Forester, he saw them talking for a moment when another mercenary and another came up from behind, Forester fired his hunting rifle at the mercenary as he tried to pull out his pistol. The others aimed.
"NO" screamed Milov as he aimed and fired at them, the other Insurgents turned to see what was happening.
The Mercenaries turned towards Milov giving Forester the time to turn around and fire his hunting rifle taking out another mercenary, the last mercenary turned around and was hit in the head by one of Milov's shots.
Milov hurried over to Forester and kicked a nearby mercenaries body.
"that... was unexpected" said Forester
"yeah, what happened?" Milov replied
"he said that I was to come with him and there was no choice in the matter" said Forester "I said im staying right here and he said that he had no choice but to terminate me"
"shit" said Milov "well looks like he wont be the last, my boys will help protect you"
"I am quite capable but my age is always a problem, thank you" said Forester

---Guide and Fanatic---
Cordon was relatively unchanged, despite the fact that dogs were getting more aggressive and rumors of a vicious creature, a spawn of hell many stalkers called it was leading the dogs, hunting even the most experienced of stalkers.

The small stalker village for this reason was fortified, several of the dwindling loner population just disappeared in the night, it was a nightmare thought Fanatic, Fanatic was left in charge of the rookie village after Wolf died and had to manage it all by himself, it was hard, he never respected Wolf a lot until now, and after all Wolf even lost his brother shortly before he died, that must have been hard.

Guide was in town too, he was a revered stalker, one of the first and he knew the entire zone like the back of his hand, he would tell the rookies tales of great beasts of mythic proportions and epic sites in the north and strange and wonderful artifacts, he helped fanatic a lot, the zone was changing and Guide wanted to explore so he was restocking for a great journey, the rookies morale was always great when Guide was around, if not a little reckless.

"thanks a lot Guide, its been hard without wolf around" said Fanatic
"yeah I know, he was a great stalker, Wolf and Hound deserved better fates" said Guide "you know I have to leave"
"yeah, morale will drop and hell will break lose" said Fanatic grimly "can you live with that"
"don't you try to pull that on me" said Guide half laughing
"MERCENARIES!, THEY ARE COMING!" Screamed a Rookie running down the hill
Rookies everywhere reached for their weapons, Fanatic held up his shortened AK-74 and looked at the others weapons, compared to his and Guides AK-74 with scope, they seemed greatly underpowered.
Then he saw them seven, maybe eight, yes there four shapes on the left and four on the right, the left side were armed with Abakans with grenade launchers while the other side were armed with G36Cs. This didn't look good.
"quick get into cover" said Fanatic "provide us cover fire, keep them pinned"
The battle had started, rookies with Makarovs, Pb1s, MP5s, and various Sawn Off shotguns were firing, the sounds of AKs and G36s were barely audible, the fight was over quickly, several rookies were on the ground bleeding out with others fumbling with med kits, fanatic took the mercenaries weapons and pilled them by the campfire, he offered them to the rookies. They deserved something to help them survive at least a little longer.
"sadly I must go, you handled yourself well, just help them survive and your camp will continue" said Guide as he disappeared over the hill
My camp, Fanatic thought, he then proceeded to help the wounded.

---Vironin and Dirov---
Duty had seen better days, the bar was barely holding, the same propaganda played but very few stalkers inhabited the zone, and those who did were in one of the many factions now inhabiting the zone, too many factions for us stalkers own good, we are too spread out.
Duty didn't want any more lives to be affected by the zone but they needed the help, the military are taking as much as they can to restrict the zone, Vironin respected that decision, but by taking the Freedom base they neglected the barrier, Vironin then realized how much Duty relied on Freedom, Monolith raiders came pouring from the north, it was quite disturbing... he saw several familiar names, names of some of the stalkers that headed north on his PDA, it seems not all of them died, but that was to change, the monolith raided the warehouses and even the bloodsucker village, they began an assault on bar that nearly broke through.
"I am getting sick of this, we need all of our men, call Dirov, we need to sort this out" said Vironin
"yes sir" said a Dutyer as he called Dirov
"this is Dirov" said a voice through the PDA
"Vironin would like to speak to you" said the Dutyer as he passed it to Vironin
"Vironin, to what do I owe the pleasure" said Dirov
"cut the crap Dirov, you know why I call, we cant split like this, neither of us will last like this, we need to work together" said Vironin
"our aims may be similar little Vironin but they are different, our views of the whole thing are wrong, we can work together but we will never be the same whole" said Dirov "shit well Ill have to call you back, sorry"
Click
Son of a bitch, thought Vironin angrily, this wasn't helpful, he sat down and stared into the fireplace, he laid back and tried to think...

Red Storm Part 7 - Bullethole

---S/B/B/G---
"who are you" asked Shadow
"I am Gregor, leader of Clear Sky Reborn" said Gregor, I was just passing by when I heard a bloodsucker roar and saw those lights in the window, it could have been a ruse but I couldn't take that chance.
"Yeah thanks again for that, I don't even know what that was" said Beaver "Its definitely not a bloodsucker"
"yes, it mutated from the bloodsuckers" said Gregor "It is known now by those who see it as the soul sucker, people are believing that they suck out your soul as well as your life, its quite ridiculous but they are deadly all the same, they even are seen leading bloodsuckers"
"really, thats... interesting to know" said Buffalo eying all the blood and gore
"Can I go?" said a small voice under all the bodies
"oh man almost forgot about you after all this fighting, lets get him to the bandit base" said Beaver
"yea we are welcome there" said Buffalo
They left the building and walked across the street.
"what were you doing out here, I thought Clear Sky was based in the Marsh" asked Shadow
"We were until that damn blowout wiped out most of our men" Gregor answered "I was returning from the nuclear power plant, I had just been exploring the place, that Marked One cleared up a nice path. I was coming back to warn my men to prepare for the war.
"War? what war?" asked Buffalo "I never heard of a war!"
"the war I talk about is the war against the zone" Gregor answered
"I thought clear sky were researchers, or something" said Beaver "why are you going to fight what you came to research"
"We were researchers, and after researching we learn t it must be destroyed" said Gregor "I must go now, tell no one about me, we must use stealth or our enemies will discover us before the time is right"
"you mean the zone or the Red Flag?" asked shadow, but when he turned around he was gone "creepy"

---Bullet---
Bullet opened his eyes, it was raining, he looked down to see debris covering his lower body, he couldn't feel his legs, his visor was foggy and cracked, several holes and bloodstains impaired his vision. His exoskeleton was damaged and several areas were torn apart, he coughed, blood spat out.
He looked around painfully, he could barely make out the Pripyat Eye, it was partially collapsed. He saw where he was... he remembered how he got here...
---4 days ago---
"GET DOWN" shouted Bullet as machine gun fire mowed down several of his comrades, the battle for Pripyat was a bloody battle, all around him stalkers were fighting. He watched as his men returned blind fire at the machine gunners position, he was getting worried.
"whats our status" shouted Bullet, his PDA damaged from a sniper round.
"Freedom has entrenched in the eastern buildings, our forces to the west are fortified, our advance is only hampered by the bandits and the monolith" said Radar, a Dutyer
"good, now lets take care of this MG nest, he spun around and fired over his cover. He saw a shot hit the gunner in the shoulder and saw the turret turn towards him, his men got up and fired at the gunner, bullets hitting his shoulder, chest, arm and head, the man fell over, a bloody mess.
"good job, SQUAD ADVANCE" shouted Bullet and they slowly pushed forward "lets get to that Freedom base, requisition some RPGs we might need them, lets join the advance squad"
The Dutyers joined up with three other squads, they were going to rush a large apartment building, almost every window had a sniper or a machine gunner, this was going to be painful.
"FIRE" Bullet roared as the men fired at every window in sight, jumping behind what ever cover they could to reload.
Instantly the Freedomers returned fire, bullets flew in every direction as he saw some of the slower Dutyers take the punishment.
"Shit my gun jammed" Bullet said as his men returned fire "Radar are you hit"
"no sir" replied Radar "and.. I found another way in, we can take a side route, we have to leave the other squads here or it will look suspicious"
"really?" said Bullet "well lets get going, main squad follow me"
There were seven Dutyers in main squad, all in exoskeletons, the seventh Radar however had a SEVA, they also only used Grozas, they ran through the streets, the shooting became distant as they reached their target. It was the end of the building, debris from the building beside it made a form of bridge.
"Inside double time" said Bullet as he headed into the building "prepare for anything"
The Dutyers walked upstairs and entered the doorway.
"what in the hell" said Bullet, quite confused "what do they think they are doing"
There was a large pile of debris, surrounded by monolith... all... bowing as if it were god.
"men, lets show them the same mercy they showed our comrades" said Bullet as all of main squad raised their Grozas and fired, wiping them out without any resistance, they saw the collapsed wall, it formed a perfect bridge.
"lets move, keep quiet till we get close" said Bullet
They slowly crossed the bridge.
"what the hell are they up to" said a Dutyer as several heads turned, seven Dutyers sneaking into the building before them.
"they wont survive in there, continue firing" said the squad leader.
They slowly walked through the building, the place was full of bullet holes, they slowly crept until they saw a Freedom Sniper looking out the window, they carefully crept and...
SNAP
Radar stepped on some debris.
"what.." said the Freedomer before getting shot in the head
"AMBUSH" said a Freedomer below
"shit screw stealth open fire" said Bullet as his team started firing.
Outside the situation was lighting up.
"Look they are firing somewhere else" said a dutyer as he saw flashes but saw no bullets
"GIVE EM HELL, FIRE THE RPGS" said the squad leader
Twelve Dutyers carrying RPG-7s aimed at the building and fired, the shots hit the side of the building blowing several feet in, the levels behind them could barely hold their weight, they lost their support.
"SHIT FUCK" said Bullet as the entire hallway they fought on creaked and slowly angled to the left.
"RUN, DEEPER IN, RUN" said Bullet as the supports gave way, he ran down the hallway, the place was turning quickly, he turned the corner and saw halfway along the hallway, it was tearing lose, he ran as fast as his exoskeleton can let him and he jumped. He barely held on as the rooms behind him collapsed into a heap, into an anomaly and explode.
Bullet pulled himself up and ran along the hallways, he turned the corner and fired at several Freedomers, and then the second barrage, this one was different.
"GET DOWN" yelled the squad leader as he hid behind the cover, a full line of T-90 main battle tanks were driving down the streets, the Freedomers fired at the tanks, causing them to turn and fire their main cannons at the building, the building was torn apart by the damage, it was almost as if someone planted explosives beforehand because the building simply exploded in the lower levels, knowing freedom it was probably a fail safe.
Bullet looked around trembling as every thing was falling, he saw some freedomers and had to make sure that they wouldnt make it, he opened his pouch and pulled out his last five HE grenades and ran at the freedomers, pulling the five pins and dived. The explosion tore up the area around him and the next thing he knew he was falling gently into peaceful oblivion.
The sky went red.
CRASH
And everything went black.
---Present---
Bullet stared, he looked for his arms, one was impaled by a large pipe, the other was free, he noticed a Desert Eagle lying on the ground beside him and reached for it, he held it up and examined the magazine as best he could. Seven shots, he would have to save it...

Red Storm Part 8 - Voices

---Mikhael---
"sir the hunt continues, the elusive Wendigo is proving difficult, the device is almost ready, after its ready we must place it" said the soldier
"excellent, send Khalepski my regards, so the stalkers are eluding us, very well, we will have another attempt, and it seems time is running short, WE MUST HAVE... Him" said Mikhael
"yes sir right away sir" said the soldier as he was dismissed
It seems the world will be within our grasp, thought Mikhael, it seems all we need is the Keeper of the Heart...

---???---
Skies of blood red...
Fires of deep blue...
The end is coming soon...
When shadow sweeps across...
Nothing left but his rule...

---Owl---
Owl woke up with a start, he thought he heard something, as if the zone was calling him, beckoning him for some reason, if that was so he thought to himself, then my retirement plan was a big waste of time, if something needs doing call the young uns. He looked through his fridge, nothing much to snack on, he grabbed some crackers and piled cheese on them, for some reason he was bothered, by the death of that kid? that was days ago, it didn't need to bother him, did it?
"zone is never a nice place..." he said slowly, then he heard it, something was climbing his fence. He ran down stairs and got his AK-47 and some ammo for it and ran back up. Men were climbing over and loading weapons.
"You are not invited, leave or you will be forgotten by the unforgiving zone" said Owl, they fired in return. He ducked down and fired off, they were ruining his nice house.
The first two went down fairly quickly, several bursts at their heads and they were down, the others were not so forgiving, they blind fired, destroying most of his furniture, he saw shapes moving along his fencing, they were surrounding him.
"I'm going to miss this place" said Owl as he ran down into his bunker, he smashed open a glass box and turned a lever, he ran down into the lower levels and sealed off just before hearing the building above him explode. He then turned to the old fireplace, clicked a button and the fireplace moved out of the way, revealing a dimly lit path.
"Rats" he said, walking into the tunnel as the fireplace closed behind him "theres no going back now"

---???---
Life as one..
Death as he...
When claws rend bone...
No real homes...

---S/B/B/B/L---
"what are you saying" said Lukash "you cant leave now"
"I have to, this isn't going well, war is going to start and I must find out more" said Shadow
"yeah.... what he said" said Buffalo
"you men have been north" said Borov "survived their prisons, escaped their wrath, and now you leave us"
"yes, sirs, we have to figure this out, i thin..but we have to try to stop more lives from meeting a purposeless death" said Beaver "i think"
"fine, but where are you going may we ask" said Lukash
"to the swamps" replied Shadow "we leave tonight"...

---Doc---
Doc heard it, he went outside, he thought he heard a voice in his sleep, it was unnerving but he suddenly felt the urge to return to the zone, at least the deeper areas. He questioned it before grabbing the assassin's pistol and calling his dog over, he looked around, winter was coming, and with that thought he walked off into the morning fog.


---Forester and Milov---
"It must be so Milov, you may stay here but I am going north soon" said Forester "but I will wait for a while, the zone doesn't want me to go right now, its hard to explain"
"but Forester, with mercenaries after you, you would need our company" said Milov
"perhaps Milov, but lets not worry about this now, for its morning, and morning is a time for breakfast" Forester replied, he lowered his voice when Milov left "or thoughts of death"


---Guide---
It was cold and dreary but Guide pressed on, his sleep had worried him but he is continuing his exploration of the New Zone, though this sudden urge to go north surprises even him, he didn't think much of it afterwards.
He found a strange new artifact, Fur, it seemed to provide warmth at the sake of radiation, it was quite an asset now that winter was coming, he stuck it to his belt and felt relieved, he walked on north.

---???---
Shadows and Flames...
Ice and Death...
Life and trees...
Mortals in these...

---Sakharov---
Professor Sakharov looked at his research, it was astounding after all this change, the zone expanding was grim news indeed but he continued to look for anything else out of the ordinary, he noticed an abnormally high level of radiation moving quickly through the fields to the north, he was curious, it was like a blowout or an anomaly, but it was highly mobile as if it was alive, it was astounding. He looked around, the new scientists were a real help and the zombies were really subdued, almost as if something wanted them to find this.


---Gregor---
Prepared? how can they prepare for the ever changing zone before them, he readied his men and prepared, in two days they march, and the battle to destroy the zone begins, they know its going to be hard...

Red Storm Part 9 - The Wendigo

---Mikhael---
"What is it" Mikhael asked the soldier, he was sick of these interruptions.
"sir we found it, the Wendigo... well Professor Sakharov found it, he counted it as an unknown source of radiation, it was strong enough to be a blowout but it moved like a living thing" said the soldier
"this is excellent news, send the squads that way to capture it" said Mikhael "and call for Red Squad to get a helicopter and go there, tell them to bring Gauss Rifles"
"you don't think the mercenaries will succeed?" asked the soldier
"no i know they wont succeed, i just want to test it" said Mikhael dismissing the soldier, he predicted in eleven days the plan would succeed, lets hope he was right.

---Mercenary Squad (Audio Recording)---
"Where did it go" said a voice
"shit I don't know, it was big and white" said another
"watch out OH MY GOD" said the first voice
Sound of unidentified screams and ripping noises, the recording ends abruptly.

---Khalepski---
Khalepski was supervising Red Squad and see the Wendigo be taken, he was staring at the freshly butchered corpses of four mercenary squads, they were all setting the Geiger counters off the charts, they kept a distance.
"Looks like one mean mother fucker messed with them" said a soldier
"yes, the Wendigo is a vicious beast, find the thing, keep a distance and use the Gauss rifles" Khalepski replied
It took them over two hours to find the beast but when they did it was something they didn't expect. A big white furry shape leaped into their squad, they ran in all directions firing their Gauss Rifles, missing it completely, the thing had massive five fingered claws that it used to rip its prey to shreds, it also was highly radioactive, as Sakharov had discovered, but its breath was not what they expected, radioactive and the coldest thing they ever felt.
One by one red squad was taken out until it was just Khalepski and the helicopter.
"shit" said Khalepski as he climbed onto the helicopter and aimed the gauss rifle "Pull up"
The helicopter rose a few feet in the air as he saw the Wendigo charging at him, he readied his Gauss Rifle as he saw it leap, flying straight at him. It all seemed like slow motion, he pulled the trigger hearing each heartbeat as the thing raised its claws and...
Woo'oo'oosh
The shot hit it straight in the head, it fell backwards in mid air and crashed on the field below, several men in hazard suits dropped down and tied a rope around the Wendigo.
Mikhael will be please, thought Khalepski

---S/B/B---
"marsh?" asked Beaver again as they walked through the valley. "why the marsh"
"clear sky reborn, their base is there, we have to reach there before the march.
"but... why the marsh" asked Beaver again
"oh come on Beaver, shut up about your Bloodsucker fear" Buffalo said, he was getting annoyed
"well its easy for you, you got a blue glowy thing that makes you run longer" said Beaver
"yeah but he never uses it" Shadow reminded him "he just plays with it, LIKE A GOD DAMN FIVE YEAR OLD
"well go fuck yourself" said Buffalo "your just jealous"
"If i was jealous i would have it already" Shadow said
The walk was long and dreary, they finally reached the path to the marsh in Garbage, the walked through the path, the great swamps before them,
"if anything moves, well you know the drill lets go" said Shadow as they began the crossing.
They heard rustling as if being stalked and whenever they talked to Beaver, he replied in a high pitch voice.
"hurry up Beaver" said Buffalo
"ooOKkk" said Beaver
They walked and walked until they found themselves staring at a long path of bushes and reeds.
"Lets go" said Shadow as he and Buffalo marched in, Beaver stared for a few moments but heard something behind him and ran in screaming.
"SHUT UP BEAVER OR YOUR GOING TO WA..." Shadow was cut off, there were several guns aimed in their face...

Red Storm Part 10 - Call to Arms

(I have added up to part 10 and completed the series, plus epilogue, I will upload the rest of the series later, enjoy)

---???---
In the shadows of life and death, people search for inner meaning...
Death strikes all as swiftly as the night...
But life strikes only the lucky...
Or are they really...

---Khalepski and Mikhael---
He watched as the massive beast was hauled into a tank, the tank was airtight ensuring that the radiation doesn't leak, it was mounted on a truck and was driven to a lab, deep in Kiev.
"its is done" said Khalepski
"excellent, we shall be sitting in office, the world trembling at our feet" said Mikhael, it was ten more days until their plans succeeded.

---Vironin and Dirov---
"This is madness" said Vironin "not only do you betray duty but you are now declaring war on us"
"Vironin, Duty failed its mission a long time ago" said Dirov "Theres only room for the Exiles"
And with that Dirov and his escort return to the Wild Territories.
"I'm sorry Dirov, really" whispered Vironin "GET OUR MEN TOGETHER, THE EXILES HAVE DECLARED WAR"
Duty vs Duty, its a fate he never wanted...


---G/B/S/B---
Gregor looked at them in surprise as they were marched to his tent.
"You followed me?" said Gregor completely surprised
"yes, we did, this is a war we cannot let pass" said Shadow
"yeah... what he said" said Buffalo, they still didn't know what Shadow was doing.
"Good, we need all the help we can get, we will meet you in Garbage in one day" said Gregor "bring as many as you can"
And with that he ordered his soldiers to lead them out of the marsh...


---???---
If life and death cannot combine...
What is between...
Death of death...
Life of life...


---B/B/L---
They were left at garbage and Beaver headed with full speed towards Dark Valley, he reached Dark Valley by nightfall and quickly headed for the bandit base.
Beaver headed to Borov's Office when he found Lukash's empty, he found them negotiating with several mercenaries.
"Ah!, I was wondering when you would return" said Borov
"we were told to come and gather some help" said Shadow "the army marches in garbage and we need all the help we can get"
"Army? you mean the military" asked Lukash
"no, the Clear Sky Reborn" said Beaver
"Clear Sky? I thought they were gone" said one of the mercenaries
"They were, they reformed and are preparing to war with the zone itself and with it I assume the Red Flag who caused all this" said Beaver
"they ruined everything for us, we will prepare, but we must be careful" Said Lukash "where are the others"
"Buffalo went to Agroprom to see the stalkers and Shadow went to gather loners in cordon and search for Sidorovich" said Beaver
"why Sidorovich" asked Borov
"I don't know... he said he had a plan" said Beaver


---Buffalo and Master---
Buffalo found the place all right, it was a large factory, he walked inside and found stalkers gathering, waving happily and as they downed bottles of vodka, it was a nice enough place to be but he had a mission.
He walked up the steps until he found the leader, Master. He had heard of him, he was apparently a master Stalker who had traveled all over the zone.
"hello, here to join the clan?" asked Master
"Im here to ask for your help" said Buffalo
"Very well, what is it you need" asked Master
"I need you to ready your men for war" said Buffalo
"War?" asked Master "which war?"
"The war against the zone" said Buffalo
"every day is a war against the zone" said Master
"but tomorrow we gather and march north, to fight the zone and well whatever the zone throws at us until we reach the powerplant" said Buffalo
"well... the power plant you say, only region I never seen, well I will prepare whoever is willing, where do we meet" asked Master
"Garbage, we gather there" said Buffalo

---Shadow and Fanatic---
He ran through, past the old blockade, ran down the road until he reached the spot he was ambushed, not even a shell casing was left, nothing to show they were there, sure its been days but still, it was quite unnerving.
He ran through the camp until he saw Fanatic.
"where is Wolf?" Shadow was in a hurry
"hes dead, he met his end to the north" said Fanatic, the newcomers face was familiar
"who is in charge of the village" asked Shadow
after a brief pause Fanatic said "I am"
"well we need to move quickly, our forces gather to the north and we need your help" said Shadow
"help with what" asked Fanatic
"we are heading north, we are marching to war" said Shadow
"what war" said Fanatic
"the war against the zone" said Shadow "take whoever is willing"
With that Shadow ran for the familiar steps to see Sidorovich...

---Shadow and Sidorovich---
He ran down the steps, turned the corner and opened the door, Sidorovich was sitting at his usual chair.
"hello... Shadow! i haven't seen you in... days" said Sidorovich "what is it you want"
"you still have contacts with the military?" asked Shadow
"yes why, want to negotiate your execution?" asked Sid laughing
"no I want you to tell them that the zone is expanding and the only way to stop it is to head to the center" said Shadow
"why?" asked Sid
"because an army of stalkers is gathering and heading north, we need to distract the Red Flag and Monolith, we need access to the north" said Shadow
"I will see what I can do" said Sid
"thank you" said Shadow as he got up and left, time to go to garbage, it was almost morning...

Red Storm Part 11 - Battle March

---???---
Death...
Death...
Death...
Death...

---Guide---
It was unlike anything guide had seen, an army of stalkers and bandits and others to the south, and duty against duty to the north, had the world gone mad.
He thought he saw Fanatic to the south, he was probably facing his destiny by now, lets hope he survives this, we need a good leader these days.
Guide headed north to see more of the new zone.

---The Army---
Gregor was looking in Awe, the three of them managed to unite the zone against the zone, or at least the southern zone, the north was a battleground they must pass.
The army marched immediately, no point letting the zone wait, they marched north and had few incident, a rookie walked into a purple pool on the ground and his legs melted, he fell into the liquid and disappeared, a new anomaly it seems, worst that a fruit punch and appears on the surface, the zone was getting more dangerous, the boys called it a Chemy.
They walked through to the gate to bar, it was abandoned and swung ajar, they walked through, they past several bigger and stronger, highly volatile whirligigs, (swhirligigs, the stalkers CREATIVELY called it) and they marched on, there was nothing all the way until.
Dogs barking in the distance, the barking was coming nearer and nearer, from behind.
The stalkers turned around to see a large pack of dogs charging, several pseudos also followed but what was leading scared them the most, a fairly large, three headed dog.
"THE CEREBUS" shouted a rookie, the dog of legend that scared the rookies of cordon.
They let off, there was a good hundred of them and they poured out endless fire from their guns, the dogs had no chance, but they didnt back down, instead they leapt. The dogs were on them before they could finish reloading, people were getting mauled all around and they fired hopelessly until...
BAM
One of the Cerebus's heads was hit
BAM
Another one was hit
BAM
The last one was hit and it fell over dead. The dogs immediately fled leaving a large amount of wounded stalkers behind. They turned to see who fired and saw a lone stalker walking down the hill, an AK-47 at his side and a Mosin-Nagant in his hands. He walked down the hill and approached him, then he cleared his throat.
"My name is Owl, I have come to face my destiny" said Owl "or Die if the zone wills it"

---Guide---
He couldn't believe it, he watched as Owl came down the hill and joined them, Owl was in retirement, he hated other people, so why did he just join an army just like this. It was amazing, guide decided he should watch these men from now on.
He followed them through bar, and thats when the war began. He saw Dutyers and exiles in a great battle, the army just marched right through the city until the two forces saw them, it was quite comical, they all dropped what they were doing and saw a large army just marching through their city, at one time they would have stopped them at the gates but no one was there to report it.

---The Army---
"halt" cried a Dutyer "state your business... stalkers"
"we are passing, either join us, get out of our way or meet your end" said Gregor
The Dutyer ran off, probably to tell Vironin, excellent Gregor said as he saw exiles back way, probably thinking we were reinforcements.
"what the hell is going on" said Vironin as he was led by the Dutyer to the army, Gregor ordered them to continue.
"Who are you" shouted Vironin "you have no business here"
"yes, we have no business here, we have business to the north and this is the quickest route, there are other routes but this is more direct" said Gregor "there is nothing you can do to stop us, you may join us or surrender, we are fighting the zone and we have no business with you"
"fighting the zone" said Vironin in disbelief "Duty, fights the zone"
"No you don't, you fight Exiles, they are not the zone" said Gregor
"but.." Vironin couldn't let someone else fight the zone, he and his followers dedicated their lives to this, it was either call off the fight or be failures "STOP FIGHTING" he screamed
His men lowered there weapons and marched over to him, the exiles did the same.
"surrendering?" asked Dirov as he marched towards him
"this fight is over" said Vironin "this man is leading his troops, he is fighting the zone, we cannot let him fight it without duty's assistance, and I'm sure there will be plenty of weak and wounded during this, this war goes nowhere while this man finds something worth fighting, something we prepared our lives for but never truly did, I am going north"
"really? asked Dirov "then... we will march, the Exiles will not disband Vironin, but our duties require this of us" and with that he marched north, signaling his men to follow.
"I am sorry, we could have dealt with this earlier" said Vironin "we march north, to glory or death"
And with that he marched north, as did Gregor.

Red Storm Part 12 - Calm before the Storm

---The Army---
They did the impossible, not only did they manage to lead Bandits and Stalkers, but they united Freedom and Duty as well as Duty's offspring, the Exiles. They marched north, they would prepare the battle for the zone in the army warehouse, just what they saw, no one but Shadow had expected.
"my god what is happening" asked Gregor
"I asked Sidorovich if he can call his military contacts and 'tip' them off that the only way to destroy the zone was reaching the center, I figured if they fail they can always just clear a nice path for us" said Shadow
"Brilliant now we must plan" said Gregor "Freedom, Bandits and Mercenaries will take the city of Limansk, "Duty, Exiles, Stalkers will rush Pripyat"
"What about you and the loners?" asked Buffalo
"We are heading for Chernobyl, as will the loners and whoever Volunteers" said Gregor
"I will go" said Shadow
"as will I" said Buffalo
"meh, might as well" said Beaver
"I am going" said Owl "my destiny is there"
"And so will I" said a voice behind them.
They turned around and saw Guide walking towards them.
"Guide, your here? I thought you were exploring the zone" said Fanatic
"I am going north because I had the urge to a few days ago, now that hopefully the final battle of the zone is taking place, I want my part" said Guide
Fanatic looked at Gregor "my men are ready, we march to Chernobyl when?"
"Tomorrow, let us camp at the old farmstead, its far too small for all of us but we will need to rest somewhere" said Gregor
"How about the army base? asked Lukash as he pointed to a large force of soldiers leaving it, everyone inside it seems.
"Ill be damned, it looks like destroying the zone is finally more important than sitting in a base all day" said Borov
"after Kiev was taken of course it is" said Beaver "now lets get something to eat before we blow this joint"
They marched to the military base and snook in while the military werent looking, they made camp and waited for tomorrow.

---Mikhael---
"Our enemy have united, and the military press north, the Monolith are swarming the NPP, they are hampering our progress" Said Khalepski
"yes, our plans will go as schedule nonetheless, have you found the Keeper of the Heart?" asked Mikhael
"no but I found the man who does" said Khalepski


---Doc---
Doc walked through the Bar, it was fairly deserted, he walked inside the one hundred rads bar.
"I said come in don't stand there" said a friendly greeter
"hello... Doc is that you, I haven't heard anything about you in years" said Bartender happily
"where is everyone?" asked Doc
"heading north" Bartender Replied
"again?" asked Doc amazed at how stupid people can be, the north was a death trap.
"not for riches, they are fighting the zone, one last desperate bid, if they fail... all the stalkers die, if not the zone dies" said Bartender
"I have to join them" said Doc "you don't mind watching my dog do you?"
"um sure why not" said Bartender
Doc left the dog, couldn't bear losing him, he was in capable hands now, he walked outside and headed to Army Warehouse, he looked at his PDA to see a large group of stalkers in the warehouses, that was his goal, lets hope he wasn't too late.
He made it to the base and found several stalkers keeping watch. He approached them.
"Heading north" asked the stalker
"you?" he replied
"yes why?" the stalker asked
"good, so I'm heading to the right camp" said Doc merrily as the guard let him pass"
He would talk to the leader and help them reach the heart of the zone, he recently uncovered a PDA of a fallen Power Plant worker and had learned an access code to the heart chamber whatever that was.

---Mikhael---
"Sir we have news of Ghost" said Khalepski
"And?" asked Mikhael, ready for more bad news
"he's dead, found him in a lab" Khalepski said proudly
Mikhael sighed, then said "excellent, lets get the troops to the Plant, the monolith are fighting in Pripyat and Limansk, the military are trying to break through their defenses, get the Wendigo to Chernobyl, you will oversee Chernobyl, I shall head for the power plant with the remainder of our troops, take as many as you would need, and make use of our garrison there.
Khalepski sighed as he left the room, he would take two regiments and keep an eye on the Wendigo, he hated the thing already.
"Sir I have the prototype for you" said a soldier holding up a gauss rifle, with two extra gauss barrels.
"Excellent, this should help our victory" said Khalepski as he marched towards the elevator.

Red Storm Part 13 - Three Roads to Hell

---???---
Life, all have...
Little enjoy...
Taken for Granted...
Forgotten in Death...

---The Army---
"LISTEN UP PEOPLE" Gregor shouted "you know the plan, the military had a days head start, the monolith are entrenched, we have to fight through, to you positions people"
The army split into three forces, the Limansk force would head to the old mercenary camp, the path to the Forester's hut, the Pripyat force would head to the abandoned Barrier, the path to the scorcher, and the Chernobyl group would head to the old trail, along the path to dark valley.
The forces marched through their positions and sat, this would be a bloody battle, they had to be prepared.
"GO" shouted Gregor into his PDA and everyone marched, it was the day to remember, the week would go by and we would remember how we stopped the zone, or would not remember at all. I hope for all our sakes we survive, thought Gregor.

---Operation Limansk---
The force marched through the old path towards red forest, the walk was long and when they made it they found a pleasant surprise, the Insurgents all had their guns drawn, the group stared at them.
"I have come to see Milov" said Lukash as he and his men were led down the road to the forester's hut.
"Lukash what brings you here?" asked Milov
"still want to fight the military?" asked Lukash
"we are getting our base back?" Milov asked excitedly
"no, we head to Limansk" said Lukash "the military have a head start and we must reach the center before they or the Red Flag do"
"Limansk, where the others died why" asked Milov
"we are going to destroy the zone, either step aside or aid us but we are not going to loiter" Lukash Replied
"shit, just a second" said Milov as he ran to the Forester's hut, he emerged with an old man and returned to Lukash.
"Forester was wanting to go to the center of the zone a while ago, he has agreed to go with us, he believes the answers are there" said Milov
"okay lets go, Forester, do be careful, your knowledge of the zone shouldn't go to waste" said Lukash
"don't worry about me, worry about yourself" said Forester as they marched through the forest towards the bridge to Limansk.
They found the bridge and crossed it, they had hit their point of no return, there was no going back from here...

---Operation Pripyat---
They marched through the old road to the scorcher, nothing in sight but cars and debris, they marched and marched until they heard something unnerving. Out of the bush a large bear emerged, its fur was matted and some areas it was missing, then he realized it was no ordinary bear.
"Shit a Pseudobear" a stalker screamed
The mutations of the zone had been spreading while Duty fought each other, Vironin thought to himself.
"FIRE" screamed Vironin as his men fired at the bear, it moved with surprising speed and it ran head first through the bullets, it crashed into the center and let off a roar, a piercing, painful roar that seemed to release a shock wave, everyone around the bear was thrown into the air, it turned its head and charged at Vironin.
Vironin inhaled and fired, the shot hit it right in the eye, the bullet pierced the eye and hit the brain killing the beast. Vironin let off a sigh of relief and helped the wounded up and they marched again.
They found the path to Pripyat, after looking around they marched on, they reached their point of no return, there was no going back from here...

---Operation Chernobyl---
The group walked along the old trail, it led them before the city of Chernobyl, they stared at it for a while, not many stalkers gaze upon the cause of this, most refer the cause of all this as the Power Plant, but the Power Plant was there because this city was there, it was too far away so Pripyat was made, and now the zone is here, they each stared for a moment then marched on. Owl lived here at one time, moved away when the plant blew, and now hes back. They walked until they past a small farm, they found a herd of cows, but the cows turned their heads and charged, it was revealed that they were known by stalkers as Auroch, seen in the radioactive farms, they were not too dangerous, a lot like flesh, dangerous when careless but not for the average stalker. The group opened fire as the herd charged at them, the herd was mowed down but one managed to reach them, its horns pierce a stalker's exoskeleton causing him to fall over in pain, the Auroch readied to charge but was stopped by a sudden shotgun blast.
"dangerous little suckers" said Beaver, bringing up the rear, he was carrying a flamethrower, given to him by Gregor, he was having trouble keeping up at times but at least he kept them on their toes with his whining.
"so, how are we going to destroy the zone?" asked Buffalo
"easy, we find the keeper of the heart" Gregor replied "before they do"
They looked as they reached the road, a road that went straight through Chernobyl, they reached their point of no return, there was no going back from here...

---Strelok---
Strelok was working on his suit, he stepped into a purple chemical and felt pain, he pulled out his leg, no damage to the suit, he stepped away and unattached the boot, his foot was fine.
"It hurts like hell but it works" said Strelok
"good, just need to find a way to relieve that pain" said the Scientist, there was a loud bang. The ground shook and Strelok felt his insides grow cold, he knew this feeling. He reattached the boot and ran upstairs.
"Hey you forgot the suit" cried a Scientist
Strelok ran outside to see the sky turn red, his suit's built in Geiger counter ticking.
"RUN ITS A BLOWOUT, EVERYONE GET TO COVER NOW" Strelok screamed to the crowded street, everyone just stared at the lights, HE HATED CIVILIANS, he ran downstairs.
"SHUT DOWN AND SEAL OFF THE LABS, EVACUATE" Said Strelok
"get everyone outside?" said the scientist
"NO GET THEM DOWN HERE, THERES A BLOWOUT, THE ZONE HAS REACHED MOSCOW" screamed Strelok, it was a nightmare, he escaped the zone and now hes part of it again, its following him. Shit he thought, should have built a bunker in Siberia instead, or flee to America, get lost as an Illegal Immigrant. Something was calling him to the Chernobyl NPP, and something told him it wasn't the Monolith...

---???---
Freedom of death comes at a cost...
World will burn with fires of hell...
Come to see the or the sky will burn...
Now comes seven marches, heading for hell...

Nearing the End?

We are nearing the end of the series, there will be three two parters, and a finale that will sum up the story, there will be a very short 'series' called Eye of the Storm which will be a loose and vague mix of advertisements, news events and diary entries that will give you a slight explanation of what happened afterwards. Hope you enjoyed so far... oh and the votes will determine if I create another series based off of this one.

Red Storm Part 14 - Operation Limansk, Part 1

---Operation Limansk---
BOOM
"GET DOWN" cried the commander as several RPGs fired out from the enemy garrison.
"SIR INCOMING" a RPG hit their cover blowing up the commander and his team....

"sir, the monolith are well entrenched" said a Freedomer
"to be expected, we shall head to the west, there are some higher buildings their, we can get snipers ready to provide Borov cover fire, Borov will head straight through with his men and we will have the mercenaries sneak behind them" said Lukash "We must take that bridge"
"yes sir, I will send the message" said the Freedomer

"Hear that boys, they need a nice distraction, CHARGE BOYS AND LET THEM HAVE IT" cried Borov as he signalled the troops to charge, he charged with them seeing the building across the street made him think he was making a mistake, every window had a MG nest.
"Oh shit" he mumbled to himself.

"come on men, they need us to bail them out and thats what we will do, we will swim across the east river, scale the fences and take the side entrance into the Machine Gun emplacement, after that we will signal them and prepare for the next advace" said the Mercenary Leader
"If we do it fast they wont even see us" said a Mercenary as their leader signaled the advance, with that they heard many machine guns firing.

"SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" said Lukash as the snipers fired at the Monolith troops trying to reinforce the bridge, there were a large amount setting up a barricade to slow the bandits movement, the snipers took out a good amount of them.
"RELOAD" Lukash cried as his snipers began to reload.
"SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" He cried again as his snipers unloaded their magazines.
"RELOAD" he repeated, the snipers did as they were told.
"SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" He repeated, the next row of monolith were down.
"RELOAD" he cried again, they reloaded.
"CHANGE TARGETS" he shouted, the snipers aimed their rifles at the side entrance to the MG nest, he saw the mercenaries swimming across the east side of the river.
"SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" Lukash repeated as he watched the little people across the river collapse, he then saw the Mercenaries sneak in the side entrance, there were some flashes in the nest and the signal was lit, a single MG shot to the air.
"PACK IT UP SNIPERS, LETS MOVE OUT" he shouted, they were across the river.

"Sir get the troops ready, the tank column is driving down the main road, they should be here in a few minutes" said the Radio man
"Good Job, LETS MOVE OUT" said the commander

The bandits rushed through, taking the MGs and whatever better gun they could find, they watched as the Freedomers caught up.
"where are the Insurgents?" asked Borov
"right here" said Milov
"this one is a tricky one" said Borov as he pointed to the tank column
"Bandits, you will attack from this building, Mercenaries, sneak from behind, Insurgants, follow the mercenaries but enter the buildings on the other side, provide support fire for the bandits, we will get to the building on the end of the road and provide sniper fire" said Lukash
"you heard em boys, lets let em have it" said Borov and they ran to the upper windows.
"follow me" said the mercenary squad leader as he motioned the Insurgents and Forester to follow "we have to be quick and quiet"
The bandits started firing.
"Better just be quick" said Milov

"SNIPERS, SET UP" Lukash shouted as his men were in position, each one got onto one knee and aimed at the troops meeting the tank column, they saw the bandits begin the attack.
"SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" Lukash cried

"orders Milov?" said an Insurgent
"wait, just wait" said Milov
"but what about our orders" asked the Insurgent
"I said wait" Milov replied

"SHIT WHERES OUR SUPPORT FIRE" Borov shouted as his men sustained casualties.
"fucking bastards" cried a bandit

"why arent they firing" said Lukash as he saw the mercenaries wait for the next diversion

"NOW" shouted Milov, his enemy had fully turned their backs and several men in the tanks rose into the machine gunner seat.

"SHIT" said Lukash "SNIPERS, READY, FIRE" he shouted as his men unloaded their magazines.

"HA TAKE THAT FUCKERS" cried a bandit as he watched the military get hit from almost all sides
"HEY WHY AREN'T YOU GUYS CHEERING" Borov cried
"TAKE THAT MOTHER FUCKERS" His troops started shouting
"GOOD NOW LET EM HAVE IT" Borov shouted as his Machine Gunners on the roof started firing armor piercing rounds.

"NOW" whispered the squad leader, the mercenaries jumped onto the first tank and through a grenade down the open hatch, they rushed through shooting everyone in front of them, throwing grenades in each tank.

The column was gone quickly and they gathered their survivors and headed for the construction site...

Red Storm Part 15 - Operation Limansk, Part 2

---Operation Limansk---
They ran in shooting, they did a full force rush this time up the hill shooting anything that moved, the rush was grueling as the Monolith made some little adjustments to a perfectly muddy hill, they added bear traps, land mines, tacks, even some trip wires that fire guns straight out of the mud. By the time they reached the hill they were muddy and covered in the blood of the unlucky, they then had to run into a potential ambush in pitch black environments.
They ran through shooting as they were bombarded from all sides. They couldn't win this kind of a fight.
"RUN, RUN ON THROUGH IGNORE THE ENEMY" shouted Lukash as his men ran through the sea of bullets to the other side.
"FUCK FUCK FUCK" said Borov as a shot hit him in the foot, he hopped on the other the rest of the way until...
BAM
A shotgun blast hit him square in the back and he slid down the muddy hill.
"Fucking bastards" said Borov
"shit we have to get you out of here" said Lukash
"go, I have surprises for these bastards too, get out of here" said Borov "GO"
Lukash signaled the troops forward. They survived the monolith defense and they ran forward to find the path to the old hospital, one commander short he thought grimly.

The monolith came running down the hill, each one shooting a dead soldier, Borov planned a special device, he clicked the button as a Monolithian aimed his pistol at him.
"FUCK YOU" Borov said as he and his nearby wounded and dying bandits blew up in a large explosion.

"fucking hell" said Lukash as he saw the entire construction yard collapse. The morale of his troops was already dropping, suddenly.
CRACK
"SNIPER" he shouted as he saw one of his troops fall over. A Monolith sniper was up in a tower at the end of the street.
Lukash looked at a bandit beside him carrying an RPG and nodded, the bandits all stood up and the one with the RPG aimed
"FOR BOROV" he screamed firing the RPG at the small tower.
BOOM
The tower collapsed in a echoing explosion, collapsing on the nearby building. They had to move quick or the path to the old hospital would be gone.
"CHARGE" Lukash shouted as his me rushed through the arch it formed just before it crashed onto the ground, tearing the building with it...

They ran down the slope, taking not of the extensive debris, they ran through the entrance, running through an underground tunnel before running up some stairs into another hell, there were several MGs set up and two snipers, the entire path was one long narrow stretch right in front of the MGs, there were troops along the upper walls as well.
He saw debris on the lower level, great cover.
"Bandits, you distract the MGs on the lower level, use the cover" said Lukash
"Mercenaries, you take the right hand path, follow the path to the other side and take out the snipers, my men will distract them and the Insurgents will find the way out of this room" said Lukash
He watched his plan and hoped it worked...

"MOVE MOVE MOVE" said the bandit leader as the they got behind cover taking heavy casualties, the kill button was in his hands now
He and his men started blind firing at the enemies as the mercenaries ran along the path.

"Fire at the snipers men" cried Lukash
He and his men stood up and fired.
Prata Prata Prata
Crack
Prata Prata Prata
Lukash fell over, his chest bleeding, it was painful, he looked at his enemies and saw the nice red and gold colors, bastards he thought as he stared at his wont, scraped the heart, fuck he thought.
"SIR SIR" he heard Milov scream, he could barely hear anything, or see for that matter, he was numb. He looked at Milov, its time to settle differences.
"There is no Freedom and Insurgents, only one... lead em well Milov.... lead em well...."
Everything went black
"yes sir" said Milov "only Freedom" he was covered in blood as he fell over, Forester put his hand on his shoulder.
"He put his fate in your hands, lets make him proud" said Forester "and I found the entrance, its behind the Machine Gunners, and oh look the mercenaries pulled through"
That got Milov's attention, he turned around to see the snipers get mowed down and the machine gunners get killed by several grenades, he signaled the troops together and they headed for the exit.

The next room was smaller and they saw red flag helicopters flying overhead.
"MEN FIRE" shouted Milov "FOR LUKASH AND BOROV, MAKE THEM PROUD"
RPGs were fired at the helicopters, three out of five were destroyed, the other two headed their way.
"EVERYONE OPEN FIRE" Milov roared almost immediately drowned out by the discharges of many different guns
A helicopter was hit and it crashed into a nearby room, the other began firing its machine guns, missiles at this range would be too dangerous.
Then it hit, Milov saw a single shot from a bandits Makarov flew right into the tail rotor, it spun out of control and crashed into the level below them.
"GOOD WORK LETS GO" said Milov pointing to the next door, this one had no floor, just a ramp leading into a dirt pit.
Milov led his forces through the pit and immediately was under fire, AMBUSH, it seemed like endless troops were either firing or jumping down from the two upper levels.
"Fire" Milov shouted "there were the sounds of hundreds of shots firing"
The battle was quick, machine guns and RPGs helped that, well over half of them were dead and there was no one who hasn't suffered a bullet.
Milov looked in horror.
"sorry Milov, I guess I wasn't ready" said Forester, several shots to the chest, he was coughing up blood so badly it was practically pouring out of it.
"nononononono" said Milov as he examined his wound "we will get you out of here"
"you've already done enough, you set me free of the zone and are going to destroy it" said Forester "make me proud he said"
Forester held out an artifact, it was covered in blood an was the strangest artifact he had ever seen, it was blue with several brown bits sticking out.
"take the compass... and.... live... fre..." said Forester, he went limp, dropping the artifact.
Milov walked over and picked up the artifact, and stared at Forester, he put it on his belt and felt as if he had more energy, almost like a caffeine, something he needed, he signaled his troops and led them into a tunnel to the Pripyat Underground...

Red Storm Part 16 - Operation Pripyat, Part 1

---Operation Pripyat---
Bullet stared at the blood all over his visor... it wasn't all his blood....
--2 hours ago--
Vironin pointed ahead at the buildings, Sniper alley.
"Master, your troops take the eastern path, wipe out the squads that will ambush us at each crossroad" said Vironin "Dirov, take the west path, your objective is the same"
"and you?" asked Master in a slow and reassuring voice
"I lead the Dutyers head on" said Vironin
"thats suicide" Master replied
"not if I lead them" said Vironin as he signaled them, the battle had begun.

The Dutyers charged straight through the main road.
"SNIPERS ON THE LEFT" Roared Vironin, his troops aimed to the left, never stopping and fired.
"SNIPERS TO THE RIGHT" he roared again as his troops aimed to the right and fired
"SNIPERS ROOFTOP" he roared as his troops fired at the rooftops
"CROSSROADS, PREPARE FOR AMBUSH" Vironin shouted, he saw both ambushes getting mowed down.
"SNIPERS ROOFTOP" he shouted...

The Exiles charged down the west side, they met the Monolith second ambush, they fired quickly.
"LETS MOVE THE DUTYERS NEED US" shouted Dirov as they headed straight seeing two more ambushes ahead, a block away each...

The stalkers got on their knees and fired short, controlled bursts at the enemies ahead. Master counted each one drop before waving his hand, they ran forward to the next group.
They ran through and shot the next group, they watched the enemies this time turn and fire before they did.
"FIRE" shouted Master, his voice booming

"FIRE" shouted Dirov, his enemies heads turned just in time to see a burst of shotguns and Grozas rip them apart.
"GOOD JOB LETS MOVE" shouted Dirov and with that they charged to the end of the street.

"SNIPERS TO THE RIGHT" roared Vironin as his men took out the snipers. They hit the end of the street and paused.

---1 hour 30 minutes ago---
"we dealt with the snipers good work, this next one is going to be tricky, I see snipers all along the rooftops waiting for us, Master go left, Dirov go right, Ill go straight through" Said Vironin
"another ambush you take head on?" asked Master
"I assume so" Vironin replied
"you are taking all the dangerous missions" said Master as he loaded his gun "I expect you want to have all the fun to yourself" Master, laughing signaled his troops to take the western path...

Dirov realized where he was heading, this lead to a monolith base, he signaled his troops to be on guard.
Dirov turned the corner to see a shocking surprise, the entire building once known as a monolith base was destroyed, completely, a large pile of rubble.
"lets cautiously move in, the debris could be good cover in case of an attack" said Dirov as he lead his troops through the rubble. He looked around an heard a faint cough.

Bullet stared up at the sky, its been several days since the building collapsed and he hasn't had food since, he was hungry but he also didnt want to die, he looked around as he heard footsteps, he coughed by accident, quickly readying the Desert Eagle in the one hand he had free.
He saw someone drop down near him, he aimed at him.
"shit... Bullet? is that you?" said a familliar voice, Dirov, he used to play cards with him.
Bullet looked at him, was his name Bullet? hes been alone here for a while...
"shit it is bullet, GUYS I FOUND A SURVIVOR, NO NOT A MONOLITH, A DUTYER FROM THE LAST FIGHT WE HAD HERE" Dirov was shouting, he saw a large amount of Dutyers, or at least he thought they were Dutyers, there armor was black and blue not black and red, he saw Dirov, taking his gas mask off.
"is that a good idea sir?" asked one of the men
"he has been here with one arm half buried under debris for a couple weeks, he needs food" said Dirov, as he pulled out a large sausage "eat up, we will get you out"
Bullet dropped is gun and grabbed the sausage hungrily as he quickly ate the sausage.
"got anymore?" asked Bullet
"shit I don't think this is Bullet I think we found Hog by mistake" one of them joked
"oh shut up and help me get his mask on" asked another "don't want the dust to choke him to death"
"ok five of you drag while the rest of us lift" said Dirov and they lifted the debris on his arms and legs and pulled him out.
"OW" said Bullet as he was lifted up, his legs broken.
Dirov quickly ran and grabbed a flag from a collapsed flagpole, he had two of his men hold each end and they carefully put Bullet on it, a makeshift stretcher.
"lets go, everyone cover them" said Dirov and they marched forward

---1 hour ago---
Master had taken out the rest of the snipers and signaled his men to advance, they were nearing the end when something jumped out at them, a three headed man... he had to be going insane, it turned one of its heads and picked up a machine gun and fired at them.
"SHIT GET TO COVER" said Master, that was the most human like mutant he had ever seen... it was unnerving.
"FIRE" he said as his men fired, they hit one of his heads with a shotgun blast and it was ripped off, but suddenly it grew back.
"MY GOD" said a stalker just before getting mowed down by the mutant.
"FIRE" said Master "AIM FOR THE HEADS"
Master had heard of an old Greek myth about something like this, a hydra, a giant three headed serpent, its weakness was fire, to stop it from regrowing it had to be burned at the neck, where would he get... thats it, incendiary grenades.
Master stood up and threw the grenade, it exploded right when the heads were shot off, perfect..?
The thing started flailing its arms every where and ran at them before exploding in there faces... interesting...
"LETS MOVE" shouted Master

---30 minutes ago---
Vironin exited the tunnel, his men had taken some hits, he saw master coming around the corner, his men were pretty beaten up.
"what took you so long" said Vironin "snipers pin you down?"
"no a mutant, the most fucked up mutant of them all" said Master
"what was it" Vironin asked
"it was a three headed man, and actual fucking man with three fucking heads, he attacked us with a machine gun" said Master
"that is creepy" said Vironin
"you didn't see it" Master said "If you had you would be scared shitless, not creeped out"

---0 minutes ago---
"There they are" said Vironin "took you long enough, whats that your carrying"
"found a survivor" said Dirov
"monolith?" Vironin asked
"no duty" said Dirov, watching Vironins face change to disbelief "its Bullet sir"
"really" Vironin as he moved to see him.
Bullets legs were ripped apart and mangled, his left arm was bent the wrong way, he looked in pain.
"you alright soldier?" Vironin asked
"hungry sir" he said in a hoarse voice "OI you, you promised me more food"
One of the exiles past him another large sausage, several others helped take his gas mask off.
"you have been here since the blowout?" asked Vironin
"yeah, team killed" said Bullet "last time I requisition RPGs" he said laughing painfully
"We found him in a collapsed building, I heard a cough and thought ambush" said Dirov
"Lucky you" Vironin said getting up
CRACK
Vironin got hit in the neck by a sniper round, he fell over.
"SHIT" Dirov cried as his men aimed their guns and fired at the sniper

In all the excitement, Bullet was left on the ground.
Bullet stared at the blood all over his visor... it wasn't all his blood...

Red Storm Part 17 - Operation Pripyat, Part 2

---Operation Pripyat---
"FIRE" shouted Dirov as the troops took out the next too snipers, it was all happening fast for Bullet, he was being carried again and the city of Pripyat was speeding by, everything was blurry, the troops were charging straight for the Pripyat Eye, they would make a stand there...
"Master, your men will take out the snipers, we will deal with all these military troops" said Dirov
"no point, I will deal with all the snipers, take my men, you will need em" said Master as he aimed his rifle at the nearest sniper and fired
"ok LETS GO" shouted Dirov as he led them through the city, the eye was behind this big building, the troops were in front, they can run through or fight through two more sniper alleys.
"I SEE AN OPENING, MASTER IF WE CHARGE NOW WE CAN IGNORE THE SNIPERS ALL TOGETHER" Dirov Shouted
"NO, THERE ARE SNIPERS HIDING, I WILL DEAL WITH THEM, GO NOW" Master shouted back
"WHAT ABOUT YOU, YOU HAVE TO COME AS WELL" said Dirov
"GO, GET TO THE POWER PLANT, DESTROY THE FUCKING ZONE I WILL STAY HERE AND MAKE SURE YOUR ASSES ARE COVERED" Boomed Master "GO"
Dirov ordered his men to charge full force at the gate, he looked back at Master as he stealthily moved off into a nearby building.

They ripped through the outside defenses and fought their way inside, they ran through until Dirov saw something, he order them to pick up Bullet.
Dirov pushed a wheelchair forward and they put Bullet gentily into the chair, Dirov then ordered one of the rookies to push him.
"LETS GO" Dirov shouted and they headed out the other side to gaze upon the Pripyat Eye.

Bullet watched as they ran straight for the Eye, they looked around and saw a large military force rush through the southern building.
"SHIT" Dirov shouted and they ran straight for the arch, towards the stadium.
They set up at the arch and pushed cover, they would hold here until the troops from Limansk leave the underground entrance behind them.

They fired until their magazines were empty, the enemy ducked behind cover and fired.
"RETURN FIRE" shouted Dirov as his troops got up and fired
"ENEMY RETURN FIRE" Dirov shouted and his men ducked as bullets flew over them.
"RETURN FIRE" He shouted
"ENEMY RETURN FIRE" he repeated
The battle carried on a few minutes until they heard some movement behind them, they ducked down and turned to see several stalkers climb out of the underground entrance and duck as bullets soared over them.
Dirov looked at them.
"Lukash? Borov?" he asked
"dead" Milov replied "Vironin? Master?"
"Dead and Missing" Dirov replied
"shit" said Milov as he examined the scene
"We will deal with this, get going" said the Bandit leader
"what?" asked Dirov
"GO" said the Bandit "we will hold em off, get going"
"you sure?" asked Milov knowing the answer
"yes, now stop wasting time" said the Bandit
Milov patted him on the back and signaled his men to follow, Dirov led his.
They ran down the path hearing shots behind them, they turned to watch.

"DIE MOTHER FU..." said the Bandit leader as he was shot in the gut by the military, they were swarming the arch finishing off each bandit.
"hey soldier, fuck you" said the bandit as he clicked the kill button.

The survivors stared at the arch as it suddenly exploded, the arch collapsed in on its self leaving a large wall of debris.
"lets go" said Milov
"but the bandits?" asked Dirov
"there dead" said Milov
"and Master?" asked Dirov
"he can fend for himself, our mission is more important, we are killing the zone and saving the innocent" said Milov, I sound like a fucking Dutyer, he thought to himself.
"can we just go somewhere safe?" asked Bullet "I'd like to rest"
"why are we trudging a man on a wheel chair" asked Milov
"he survived the third explosion by himself here, we are not leaving him, not after all this" said Dirov "LETS GO"

Red Storm Part 18 - Operation Chernobyl, Part 1

(Ok I managed to redo these parts, they are short... a lil too short it seems but oh well, im finishing up the last part, never was really proud of that one and it looks like I finally have a reason to redo that one)

---Operation Chernobyl---
They were up against a building, ricochets flying everywhere, they peeked around the corner to see soldiers shooting out of windows, all wearing the colors of Red Flag.
"Cover Beaver" shouted Gregor as the force turned the corner and ran for cover, they blind fired as Beaver turned the corner with his flamethrower at hand, he aimed and then fired a stream of flames into a nearby window, the screams of the soldiers could be heard over the constant roaring flames.
The day continued like this as Beaver proceeded to burn each and every window helping the army advance, they then proceeded with caution. It was suddenly quiet.
"Look up there" whispered Owl "Ive seen those birds before, keep quiet"
There were giant crows on the roof, Carrion Reapers as they were called, they didn't seem to notice the long line of stalkers carefully marching past.
CRACK
The sniper shot came out of nowhere and hit a soldier, the birds heard that.
"RUN" shouted Owl as the force ran forward shooting upwards at the birds.
"HAHA BURN SUCKERS BURN" shouted Beaver as he shot a constant stream of flames into the air, the birds didn't stand much of a chance.
"HURRY UP BEAVER" shouted Buffalo
"Ill hold em off, Ill catch up when I'm done with em" said Beaver as he burned the birds.
The force continued marching, Owl looked over his shoulder at Beaver as he fought the birds, then he noticed it.
"BEAVER GET OUT OF THERE" Shouted Owl but it was too late. Beaver's Fuel tank had ruptured and was leaking quite rapidly, then a single spark hit the fuel and it exploded.
"BEAVER!" Shouted Buffalo as he turned to the explosion, there was a large ball of fire, the birds were pecking through the flames.
"DIE" Shouted Owl, it was that kid all over again, he fired several rounds at the bird, the birds noticed the old man shooting them and grabbed Beaver's body before flying away.
They stared at the fire as the rain began to pour, they then looked around.
"we need to get to some form of transportation" said Gregor
"Tanks" said Shadow, everyone had forgotten he was there, he pointed to a parking lot full of tanks.
"Good work Shadow" said Gregor and they marched towards it, the rain was pouring now.
They claimed 5 tanks and climbed inside, Shadow was about to climb in when he turned around, he saw Owl standing alone in the rain.
"Come on Owl, lets get out of this god forsaken town" said Shadow
"No... this is my destiny, my enemy is here, go and face yours, I shall see you on the other side" said Owl and he turned his back on the tanks as they began to drive down the road.
Shadow didn't fight, he then climbed inside his tank as it began to drive. This wasn't going to end well.
Owl watched the tanks move, he looked as he saw several soldiers load up into trucks and tanks, he noticed that there was a jeep left behind, a jeep an officer would drive, he also noticed that there was a large fuel tanker, he stared at it and realized, good his enemy didn't leave.
Time to die you bastard...

Khalepski stared out the window as the two vehicle groups left, he watched as an old man sat down by the side of the road, clearly waiting for him.
Khalepski pressed a button on the wall, lets see what the Wendigo makes of him...

Red Storm Part 19 - Operation Chernobyl, Part 2

---Operation Chernobyl---
The convoy was driving slowly, the mud could be heard sloshing as the rain poured ever on.
Shadow wasn't right, he wasn't feeling good, he just watched someone who he fought and fought for days on end die... and he couldn't stand it.
It was as if Beaver was keeping them going, for all he knew he was, he was dead, and now they sat in silence.
Owl seemed bothered by it, thats probably why he stayed, he might have already died but he was a crafty old man, and was skilled with his weapons.
Shadow prayed for him, something he hasn't done in years, not since his life was destroyed when the Nuclear Power Plant exploded, since the radiation wiped out the area, since he was denied access to his home, to Chernobyl, his family was trapped inside, their screams rang in his head...
He blinked back to the present and thought to himself, I hope we succeed.
Buffalo hadn't said anything since we left, he just stared into his moonlight, he didn't even play with it like he used to.
Shadow felt sorry for him, death of a friend must be hard but he already lost a lot of them earlier, Shadow had lost worse but this was still painful, he longed to see his sister, his wife, his son, his father, his mother, all of them but... they were gone.
Owl would succeed whatever he was planning, that was going to happen, he hoped.
They had been driving along the road to the power plant, to their left was the cooling pond, to their right was the Pripyat River.
Gregor occasionally said something in the radio to help bolster morale but it was as low as it could go.
"okay boys, theres some Red Flag pursuing us, lets man the guns and give em hell" said Gregor
Shadow got up and manned the cannon, he wanted revenge and this was the zone presenting him the chance.
He spun around and aimed.
He fired, the shot hit the drivers seat of the first truck.
There were several other shots, he watched as the first few vehicles were totaled.
He reloaded, fired and repeated.
It went quite well until the helicopters showed up, they fired destroying a few of the helicopters but they nearly destroyed one of their tanks.
Shadow aimed and fired, it hit the propeller and exploded upon impact, he watched as the helicopter fell into the cooling pond.
There was a loud bang as a BMP-3 hit them sending their tank off course.
Shadow fired a shot into the small window on the drivers side.
He watched as the interior of the BMP-3 lit on fire and it crashed, he then saw a man climb out with an RPG.
"TAKE THIS FUCKERS" he shouted.
Shadow fired as quickly as possible.
The shot flew straight at the man, who had just fired his RPG, both shots hit and the explosion blew back into the shooter.
"wow did anyone see that, I just hit the other mans shot" said Shadow, it was an impossible shot.
"oh shut up, thats impossible" said a stalker below.
"damnit" said Shadow as he turned the cannon, he saw the NPP right in front of him.
"Were there" said Gregor "Lets end this"
Finally, it will all be over soon, if only Beaver was here to see it...

Red Storm Part 20 - The Beginning of the End

---Owl---
Owl was getting up when he heard it, the rain was heavy and loud but he could still hear it, a low growl... he was being hunted.
He felt his insides chill as a cold breath blew over his shoulder, a rancid smell of rotten flesh, fuck he thought to himself.

Owl spun around and saw the beast, a big creature with a very thick coat of white fur, it had massive claws and sharp teeth and two piercing. It swung its arms and snapped his Mosin-Nagant clear in half.
"SHIT" said Owl as he ran down the street, the beast on his heels, he turned a corner and pulled up his AK-47 and waited for it to turn the corner. He looked up to see the beast looking down at him from the roof of the building above. Clever bugger.
Owl fired up at it, he emptied his entire clip into its head but the rounds seemed to bounce off of it. This wasn't going well, he thought to himself grimly.

Owl turned and looked, he saw a factory down the street, the doors looked strong. Owl ran for it, hearing the beast roar and the ground shook as it crashed down into the ground.
Owl turned and jumped into a nearby building, he closed the door and ran for the back door, there was none, SHIT, he was cornered.
The beast jumped through the door shattering it, it stared at him.
Owl ran straight at it, then turned, he jumped out the window and ran down the street, he didn't stop until he reached the factory.
He slammed the door shut and locked it, immediately the door started to rock as the beast rammed into it, it was trying to break through.
Owl recognized these tactics, a commander who personally takes care of his enemies, unleashing a beast onto a controlled environment... Khalepski...
"KHALEPSKI" Owl shouted, he turned around to see it. A nuclear missile, this was definitely Khalepski.
"KHALEPSKI" Owl shouted again "I KNOW YOUR HERE, SHOW YOURSELF"
"Hello again Vlad, or is it Owl they call you now" said Khalepski "Its nice to see an old comrade, even if hes a traitor"
"Traitor is it? I thought I retired" said Owl "You are the one betraying our country"
"No, they are the traitors, they surrendered to democracy" said Khalepski "our oaths just forgotten"
"well, now we sit here with a giant beast hammering on the gates, I wonder what will happen when it breaks through" said Owl
"yes, that would be interesting, but right now I have to leave" said Khalepski
"no you wont, I wont let you" said Owl
"how do you expect to do that" Khalepski asked
"well somewhere on the lines of this" Owl replied, aiming his AK-47 at the nuclear missile.
"you don't want to do that comrade" said Khalepski
"how would you know what I want" Owl replied
"well I thought you were no longer fighting, retired, why destroy someone else's plans" said Khalepski "I thought you had no side but your own"
"sadly, your side is crossing my sides path" said Owl
"Very well, I regret this decision but you leave me with no choice" said Khalepski "I am sorry brother"
There was the whooshing sound of three gauss rifles, Owl felt blinding pain, he looked down to see three holes in his chest, he looked up to Khalepski, cradling his three barreled gauss rifle.
Owl heard the doors burst open and watched as Khalepski reloaded his rifle, he saw a big white shape leap past him, Owl felt his trigger finger twitch, he pulled down the trigger.
The recoil of the gun was powerful and almost impossible for him to control, he heard Khalepski scream and the beast let out a deafening howl.
Owl felt a sharp pain, suddenly he was relaxed, everything was going white and he was in perfect oblivion, oblivious to what was happening and perfectly calm, he fell backwards before feeling his body melt around him into the sea of white.
Then... he felt nothing...

---The Army---
The 5 tanks drove down towards the NPP to see a crowd of stalkers in battle against the Monolith, it seems that they are still holding. The tank cannons fired upon the Monolith, quickly forcing them into a retreat.
The forces climbed out of the tank, the stalkers were small, their numbers were depleted, this was a grim scene, not a single uninjured stalker was left.
"where are the others" asked Gregor
"none of them made it" Milov replied "they died heroes"
They sat in silence for a while.
"what about Owl and Beaver" asked Dirov
"Beaver didn't make it" said Buffalo
"but where is Owl" Dirov asked
"he stayed behind" Shadow replied.
They turned towards Chernobyl, there was a bright flash and the entire city just disappeared, they saw the sky turn blood red above it.
They sat in silence once again.
"well, they died like heroes" said Gregor "now lets join them"
With that the stalkers turned towards the NPP and marched towards the hole in the sarcophagus, the one the Monolith fled into. There was no going back, there never was.
Doc stayed behind to tend to Bullet, a handful of stalkers stayed with them.
They split up to find their goals, it was a dark tunnel, the Limansk and Pripyat forces split off, hoping to find answers and the way to end this. The Chernobyl force pressed onwards.
"Anyone hear that" asked Shadow slowly
"I hear it too" Gregor replied
There were scratching noises behind them, they turned around, their flashlights illuminating only part of the hall, somewhere behind the curtain of darkness laid a beast of some sorts, scratching their way towards them.
They sat silently in fear, not knowing what to expect, they didn't expect what they saw.
Hundreds of rodents, climbing on the walls, the roof and the floor where running at them, only they weren't rodents, their teeth and claws were quite large, they also looked slightly bigger. They were rare in the southern parts, a few days ago some stalkers met their ends to these buggers, the survivors called them Rippers, because of how they kill their foes, they never explained that.
"RUN" shouted Gregor and they ran off into the tunnels. They ran for what felt like hours until the scratching noises were gone, only to notice that they were missing some of them.
"Who are we missing" Gregor asked
"Shadow, Guide, Fanatic, Buffalo and Mashko" a Stalker replied
"Let us continue" said Gregor, they would have to do without them.

---???---
Why fight what cannot change...
The truth is out there...
Do not fight with reality...
Come now and face true destiny...

---S/G/F/B/M---
They walked and walked, the man named Mashko was injured, one of the Rippers had grabbed onto his leg.
They walked down tunnel after tunnel, climbed ladder after ladder, they were lost.
"lets find a map" said Buffalo
"oh yeah" said Shadow "lets find one of the thousands of maps that are scattered throughout the sarcophagus for our viewing pleasure"
"shut up" said Fanatic "I cannot listen to you argue all day"
"I think we should take the next right" Guide said "I feel that is the way we must go"
"Oh and how do you know that" Shadow asked
"Don't be a fool boy, I know you can hear those whisperings" Guide replied
They stood silent for a while before hearing it, it was random gibberish, but it seemed to call them...
"agreed" Shadow said "we take the next right"

---Clear Sky---
They found a room, it was collapsed but their was a ladder going up, they saw a glowing light above, this was it.
They climbed up the ladder and over some debris, they were inside the reactor. There was a giant crystal their, the Great Monolith.
"My god its real" said Gregor "its... beautiful"
The Clear Sky Reborn climbed up and surrounded it, staring in awe.
"I am sorry Great Monolith" said Gregor "It must be done if we want to live in a better world"
The stalkers aimed their guns at the Monolith and fired.
The Monolith shattered and the shards sprayed out, Gregor watched as the larger of the shards flew up through the collapsed roof of the sarcophagus, but the rest of the shards ripped through him and his men.
Gregor looked down at the hole in his chest, there was a purple mist exiting it, it floated towards the remains of the monolith, he watched as the monolith exploded in a great purple light and the same purple substance floating up through the roof of the reactor.
Gregor stared as the mist finished exiting his body, there was suddenly nothing, he didn't notice his end, none of them did...

---Duty---
Dirov stared at the room, it was a circular room with some destroyed device in the center. It looked like some sort of holo-projector-thing from some star wars movie, he looked around, he was in some sort of lab, a secret in the heart of the zone.
"Sir what is this place" asked a Dutyer
"something we have looked for, something that would explain the zone" Dirov replied "find any data in this room, we will give it to Sakharov, if we survive this.
"yes sir" the Dutyer replied
Dirov looked around, he noticed an exit, that may prove useful later.

---Freedom---
"My god" said Milov "we must be staring at the greatest secret in the world, the secret of the zone"
"I agree sir, this is... fascinating" a Freedomer replied
They were in a circular room, in the center were several tanks surrounding a computer, each one with a human inside, the tanks were shot up and the humans were all dead, their blood was visible in the green liquid, someone wanted to end this, thats for sure.
"what could have happened here" asked Milov
"didn't a stalker named Marked One reach this place before that explosion" a Freedomer asked "maybe he did this"
"or the Monolith did it" another suggested
"or the Red Flag did" another suggested
"whoever did it, they did a good job, this is completely destroyed, we might be able to salvage some data from it" a Freedomer said
"Gather whatever data we can, we could learn a lot about the birth of the zone, something everyone wants to know" said Milov
He saw an exit, leading to the rooftops, that was where the shooter stood, he noted it as a quick exit route, who knows what could happen...

---S/B/G/F/M---
They were in a long hallway, it was wider than the tunnels. The hallway was dimly lit, a few lights and tv screens were flickering, the walls were lined with bodies.
"This is where the voice is coming from" Guide said cautiously
"This is where the mercenary is too" said Shadow "the one who knows where this Heart Keeper is, according to Gregor"
They walked along the corridor before hearing it
"Death comes swift..."
"Shadows and flames..."
"Heart of the world..."
"Nears its goal..."
They saw the speaker, there was a mercenary laid against the wall, he was talking to himself, it was quite unnerving.
Shadow crouched beside him before he knew what he was doing, he checked the PDA on the guy, the mans name was Scar, a mercenary.
Shadow looked through the PDA, looking in the message log, it went on for days of random words, he then saw the interesting part.
"Take down his Psy Armor" said a man named Lebedev "hes getting away shoot him, yes you did it, now lets wait and see what happens, wait whats happening, we thought the zone would get better, whats happening, AHH MY HEAD FEELS LIKE ITS GOING TO BURST.
Shadow stared at it, the last few moments this man was sane. He looked through his mission logs, he was ordered to stop a man named Strelok, he was to stop him from reaching the sarcophagus in hopes that the zone would correct itself.
Shadow looked up at the mans face, he was looking back at him.
"Of seven marching to hell..."
"five remain..."
"the final two will leave unharmed..."
"I am looking upon the Heart Keeper..."
"reach your goal and meet your destiny..."
They stared at him, Shadow didn't know what to think anymore, it made sense but... it couldn't be true, how can he keep something if he didnt know where it was.
There was a roaring noise behind them, they turned to see an odd mutant slowly marching down the hall.
"Overseer comes to see his patients..."
The thing looked like a controller, except its skull was shaped as if it had two brains, its head was exceptionally big.
Mashko pulled out his pistol and aimed at it.
It looked him in the eyes and they watched as his head exploded.
"FUCK" said Fanatic
"DON'T LOOK IT IN THE EYES" said Buffalo
The rumors were true, the beast that could make your brain explode with a slight glance existed. But for some reason Shadow didn't look away, he stared at it.
Their eyes met but Shadow didn't feel his brain burst, instead they just stared at each other.
They heard a scratching noise as the Rippers had found their scent.
"Goooo...noooow...meeeeet...fateee..." Shadow was taken by surprise, he had never heard a mutant say something he could understand.
The Mindflayer turned around to meet the hundreds of Rippers that were climbing through the door.
"Lets go" said Shadow, they turned to run but Shadow felt something grab his leg, he turned to see Scar holding it, his eyes seemed a bit more focused.
Shadow grabbed Scar and carried him over his shoulder, they ran down to the end of the hall and out the door, they turned the corner before hearing hundreds of popping noises.
"Hurry up" said Shadow as they turned another corner, several shots missed them by inches, the Monolith had found them.
"RUN" shouted Shadow as they reached a hatch on the ground. Shadow opened the hatch, there was a ladder going down to a tunnel below.
"climb down and help me lower Scar" shouted Shadow
There was a shotgun blast and Guide collapsed against the wall.
"GUIDE" shouted Fanatic
"Go, get out of here kid" said Guide "I explored the zone, its fitting I die at its heart, now get going, I will hold em off" he began to fire down the hall.
Fanatic slowly climbed down the ladder, he reached the bottom and caught Scar before helping Buffalo down.
"sure you don't want to come?" asked Shadow
"I'm fine kid don't worry about me" Guide replied as Shadow climbed down the ladder and sealed it behind him.
"WANNA PLAY KIDS, LETS PLAY" shouted Guide as he fired at a pipe along the wall, it ignited and the entire hallway burst into flames.
The ground shook as they stared up at the tunnel above, the lights had all shattered.
"come one were almost there" said Shadow as they reached a crossroad.
"well this is it, the exit is to the left, I am going to the right" said Shadow "go"
"I'm not going just yet" said Buffalo
"I will get Scar to the exit" said Fanatic "take Buffalo, you will need all the help you can get"
"fine, but... fine" said Shadow, he didn't want him to come, he had a feeling this wouldn't turn out well...

---Duty---
Dirov heard it too, someone stepped on some glass outside, someone was coming. The Dutyers looked around, before they knew it their were red and gold shapes surrounding them.
"HEY ASS HOLES FUCK YOU" said Dirov as they opened fire, shooting everything that moved.
Bullets were ricocheting everywhere, the battle ended quickly, almost half the Dutyers were gone, Dirov looked down to see his gut ripped apart, he didn't even feel them hit, he looked around at his fellows.
"I... join our brothers... lets... make them proud..." he said painfully before collapsing on the floor, he felt himself get lifted up, everything went black. He hoped he made Duty and the Exiles proud, he didn't know what fate awaited them...

---The Heart---
"Comrade Mikhael" said the soldier "the heart reactor doors are unlocked, shall I open?"
"yes soldier, what of the city of Chernobyl" Mikhael asked as the heart reactor doors opened.
"According to our scouts, the entire area is gone, just wiped off the earth, there is a giant anomaly that covers the entire area, anyone near it dies of radiation, anything or anyone that manages to enter it just disappears" said the Soldier "Khalepski is gone"
"well all we can do is wait for the heart keeper, he should be hear any second now" said Mikhael just as a loud gunshot echoed in the room, the soldier dropped dead.
"did you have to shoot him, he was ever so loyal" said Mikhael, he quickly turned and fired a concealed Tokarev, the shots hit Shadow in the leg and Buffalo in the shoulder, they both collapsed to the floor.
Buffalo fell against the wall and watched as Shadow fell against the opposite side.
"Mikhael, why don't you just do us all a favor and die" Shadow said as he examined his wounds
"well first you shall, maybe I will die when this is all over" said Mikhael as he raised his Tokarev.
CRACRACRACRACRACRACRACK
Buffalo looked for the gunman. Judging by the shot it was an AK-74 but it was firing way too fast.
The gunman was in an exo-skeleton, he was holding an AK-74 just as Buffalo had expected.
Mikhael had disappeared, probably ran out the door on the opposite side of the room.
"who are you" asked Buffalo
"my name is Strelok" he said "it seems I have arrived just in time"
He looked at Shadow who nodded back.
"Get it over with" said Shadow
"I am sorry for this but you understand" Strelok said as he pulled out a Desert Eagle and shot Shadow right between the eyes.
Buffalo didn't know what was happening, he watched as Strelok pulled out his knife and begin to cut around Shadow's heart, he pulled it out and that confused Buffalo the most, it was not a real heart, it was an artifact.
Strelok then, holding the heart, marched towards the heart reactor...
Crack-a-Crack-a-Crack
Strelok fell backwards, Mikhael emerged from the door across the room holding an AK-107, he then walked over and took the heart from Strelok.
"Strelok, nice of you to join us, I have been searching for you but I have obviously underestimated your skill" said Mikhael
"so you sent them after me, well they weren't very good" said Strelok
"well I must leave, important mission you know, taking over the world" said Mikhael and he stepped into the reactor.
Strelok throw his knife at the computer next to it, the knife hit a button and the reactor door sealed, there was a flash of light and the room began to shake.
Strelok got up and grabbed his gun, he picked up Buffalo and carried him out of the room, Buffalo was staring at Shadow until he passed out of sight.
"Can you run?" asked Strelok
"yes" Buffalo replied as he was set down.
Buffalo attached the Moonlight to his belt and they both ran down the collapsing hallway.

---Fanatic and Scar---
Fanatic was practically carrying Scar down the hallway, he was nearing the exit as the place started to collapse behind him, he was going at an easy pace before but now he was running as fast as he could, he could hear footsteps behind him, he turned to see Buffalo and an unknown stalker in an Exo-skeleton running towards him.
He reached the exit and ran in to a teleport anomaly before he even knew it was their, everything went black...

---Strelok and Buffalo---
They watched as a shape turned and looked at them before continuing.
"WHO WAS THAT" shouted Strelok over the crashing noises behind them.
"THAT WAS PROBABLY FANATIC, HES HELPING SCAR REACH THE EXIT" said Buffalo
"FANATIC? WHATS HE DOING ALL THE WAY UP HERE" Strelok asked, Scar sounded familiar too
"HE WAS LEADING THE LONERS OUT HERE" said Buffalo
They ran out the exit and ran straight into the Teleport anomaly, everything went black...

---The Bar---
Bartender sat in his bar, it was quiet, he wasn't expecting anyone, they were off in their grand crusade, he sat with only the two Dutyers who helped him for company.
He occasionally had a conversation with Sidorovitch or Sakharov, but at the moment he was alone, he heard a bang and a bright flash.
Fanatic and a mercenary crashed into a table, they came out of nowhere. They were closely followed by a man in a wheel chair and an old man he knew as Doc. Then a man in an Exo-skeleton and Buffalo flew into the wall.
After that a large group of Dutyers and Exiles just crashed onto the floor, then next thing he knew a bunch of Freedomers, some mercenaries and a bunch of stalkers just came flying in all directions out of nowhere, he stared at his now totaled but crowded bar.
"SERIOUSLY MEN, WHAT THE HELL" he shouted as they all clambered off the floor.
"Hey Bartender" said Milov "Get as much vodka as you can, we are in need of a good drink after that.
The ground shook and everything went black.
"SHIT BLOWOUT" said the Greeter as they heard a door slam shut and heard footsteps running down stairs, he sealed the second door. "WHERE THE FUCK DID THEY COME FROM"
"I have no fucking clue but lets get out of here" said Bartender "follow me to the shelter, this is seriously going to be a tight fit"
They all managed to fit but they had little stretching room, they looked around.
Bartender passed around some vodka, he decided it might be better to take some down after that last time they had to hide in here.
"so who did we lose" asked Doc
"Lukash" said Milov
"Vironin" said Bullet, Bartender knew he saw that man before.
"Borov" said Milov
"Guide" said Fanatic
"Dirov" said Bullet
"Owl" said Doc
"Forester" said Milov
"Beaver" said Buffalo
"Gregor" said Fanatic
"Master" said Bullet
"Shadow" said Buffalo
They sat in silence, their bottles raised before drinking.
They sat in silence for most of the night, until a beeping woke them up from their silence.
"Radiation is back to norms" said Bartender "lets get out"
They climbed out of the bar and looked outside, they looked around. The Freedomers prepared to leave, they assembled the survivors, Milov was left in charge, he felt like taking Limansk, he would set up a memorial for those who died, he owed it to them.
The Dutyers, also planned on leaving, they were assembling, Bullet had decided that they will take control of Pripyat, and set up a base their, leaving Bar to the stalkers. Fanatic being in charge now after Master disappeared.
Bartender looked as he saw the man in the exo-skeleton leave with Doc, who now had his dog following him. Bartender looked on his contacts screen to see the mans name.
"Hey Marked One, Why didn't you tell me you were alive" said Bartender
He turned around and looked at Bartender "My name is Strelok" he said before leaving with Doc.
Strelok thought to himself, he couldn't escape the zone, so he decided he would live within it, like Doc, he was going to build a little house near him, and relax, lie back in the sun, and finally be free, he liked that idea.
Buffalo stared up into the sky, he thought of Beaver and Shadow... Shadow is dead he said, but Beaver may still be alive, and with that thought he set off into the fields of the zone.
Bartender looked at the mercenary, he saw his name was Scar. Some of the stalkers said his brain was addled.
"Hey mercenary you ok" asked Bartender
"yeah, Im just fine thank you, got a job for me or a bottle of vodka?" he said laughing...


The Zone had changed again, this time it expanded, it decided the Ukraine was too small for it, it set its mind on the world, Mikhael was a fool to think he could use it, it lived on its own but nonetheless his dream came true, the zone covered the world...

The End

Yep, that was the end, they don't really save the world, instead they fuck up big time and screw the world over, they then carry on with their day, how awesome was that
was that really the end? well I have a concept for a sequel in the works, got an entire world to explore but then again, I doubt I can think up a world of new and exciting mutants, anomalies, artifacts etc.
So... if you have any Ideas about what I could add, or characters you want me to add to my next Story, just leave a comment with the concept.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed, I made the ending a lot bigger and more detailed than it was and I'm quite happy with it, please leave nice big positive comments about how kick ass I am and how much you love me or well anything else

In one story on here I said it expands to twice its original size. Yours keeps growing...Scary

Just finished reading your story. Great job, I liked how it unfolded and fell into place. Was the Red Flag faction C-Con in this case?

I guess the Red Flag wasn't then. It just sat there and waited for the right opportunity to take over the world, while C-Con was only interested in the original zone, am I right?

Arghh! Ok, let's just say C-Con and Red Flag were closely connected to one another. They both did something for each other or were part of some common goal.

I read the Red Storm completely and they were up each other's asses so deep that they must be very strongly linked. That's my guess at least. I finished Fallen Rain, and now I'm reading Lakota where they are stranded in the Egyptian desert. The story is amazing so far. Am I gonna find out more about the Red Flag and C-Con there or will I find out all the way in Maelstrom?

you learn a few things in Lakota but the full truth will be explained in Maelstrom.
