100 Rads Bar, where any STALKER can join in on the conversation and post his or her stories about the venture into the zone!
Is that a wooden gun?
errrr No...it's the latest, state of the art, as used by Special Forces, all purpose, megadeath, seen in BF3 and it's called a....em..lemme think here..a Blaster..yeah that's it, a Blaster
Impressive huh ?
Ooooh a Blaster... It's mine! I give you 110.000 RU...c'mon you have to accept...it's a cool price...yeah a cool deal... I need to blast my way in Pripyat so yeah...need some firepower. Okay now, hand over the Blaster! You shall never encounter such an astonishing deal!
I knew you would be impressed! :D
Oh, but of course! I mean, just look at it! Looks like a Plasma Cutter from Dead Space! Now I'd like to dismember those annoying bloodsuckers in STALKER....
Careful what you say about dismembering bloodsuckers, LoNer1 has got a pet one, might be a bit sensitive on this matter, lets say for wiping out Chimera's etc
Oh...hope he didn't hear that...oh well, I said "bloodsuckers" not "bloodsucker babies". And yeah...chimeras are even more annoying... I hated the first time a whole pack of them jumped at me in the Army Warehouses....
Looks totally legit. 100 RU?
100RU!!!! Are you serious, this baby will drop a charging bloodsucker with just one shot! errrr honest
100RU indeed, man you've been hanging around with Sidorovich for too long, his habits are rubbing off on you :D
OK, chill. 110 RU?
OK, had a cold beer and I'm chilled...man it's been a long day, I mean 2 days in the zone with just this to show for my efforts. However I have a plan, we ask LoNer to give it a re-texture job..you know touch up the wood a bit, add a scope and perhaps a silencer and then we sell it too..hmmm..I know we sell it too Duty, complete with a fabulous description of it's death dealing potential and then we disappear for a couple of days, yeah perfect plan?
How about removing the duty faction from this place and replace it with the freedomers? And give the dutiers the military base and the barrier?
But hm, then you wouldn't have a beautiful chill place while travelling back from a exploration trip to Pripyat...
It's not a long journey from here to the Freedom base, no real massive problems getting to it. If we could however, how can I put this..rewire the Duty loudspeaker system so as it has a massive malfunction, then that would help the neighborhood, do it at night, sort of thing.
I offer 120 RU.
Wait...see the fiendishly clever plan I have concocted, it's nearly foolproof
Take it or leave it
Ahhh, just the man, please see above post regarding a re-texture number for this baby, and the foolproof method of disposing of this, I hope I can count you in on this and we share...lemme think here, yes we share 70/30, you in?
Make that 1OO.OOORU and im in
Cool, you do the re texture job on it and I will go and sell it too Duty, best if we make ourselves scarce for a couple of days after we have the cash, they may possibly be a bit annoyed with us if they lose a member to a charging bloodsucker or similar type of unfortunate incident.
They may come at me. I've managed to capture a baby bloodsucker and tame it. It's my pet now! it'll be fully grown in only a couple of weeks!
That's perfect man, really perfect! OK, how about this..train the bloodsucker to play dead at a your command, then we demonstrate the the gun using your pet bloodsucker, plays dead when we pretend to shoot it and viola!! Duty pay us the big money!
Oh by the way..what do you feed it on?
Hm, I can only guess what your pet eats...last time I checked there was one body missing outside the bar area...
Hmmm..I don't wish to sound like some sort of Health and Safety Executive, but I'm not sure that having a "pet" bloodsucker around the Bar is good for business, especially if a certain amount of "disappearing" becomes habitual, suppose you could feed Snitch to it though.
If we can get this son of a b*tch...
Well yes, just tell him someone is asleep outside the Bar with money falling out of his pockets or something like that.
Then after Snitch's little accident, perhaps LoNer1 could put it on a lead just to be safe.
I will offer 50.000 RU. Not 5O.OOO RU...
This plan will work man, it's got profit written all over it :D
What sort of ammo does it fire?
It fires Imagination Bullets, Sites.psu.edu
It fires chocolate bars! So hopefully bloodsuckers would spare ya for that...
With the added bonus that chocolate will rot their teeth, so they can't bit you! :)
Oh....but they still got tentacles!
And claws I guess, yeah I can see now that it ain't going to work
Obviously... Basically you'd get rid of their teeth so they're not gonna go vampire mode... But they can still rip you to pieces with their claws... Or steal your weapon with the tentacles...
OK...it fires uranium tipped kinetic energy penetrators
Sounds cool.... It's mine again!
It's all yours man, just one word of advice...don't leave it too close to any fires...it's a little...how can I put this...emmmm...flammable! :)
What?! So when a Monolither shoots my gun...it'll explode with me as well?!
Well far be it from to encourage profiteering...but, if you sold the gun to the Monolith for a handsome profit or swap it for a Gauss, well that would be good business.
Just a thought but who the hell is supplying the Monolith with all that fancy firepower anyway?
No idea...maybe they do some rituals to invoke it or something?... Oh or maybe the Duty helps them...I wouldn't be surprised if some Monolithers work with the Duty... Although the thing is...you never see a Dutyer carrying a Gauss gun...
Maybe that whole C Consciousness crowd of screwballs got their hands on some useful hardware and passed it onto them, the rest I suppose they just collect from casualties etc.
Nobody else has them Gauss guns though.
Yeah...well, I wouldn't want to see bandits running around with Gauss guns, although they might just point them at themselves then blow themselves up....
The Zone is dangerous enough as it is without every half-wit in creation running around tooled up with Gauss guns, and the very thought of Bandits getting their thieving hands on them doesn't bear thinking about.
Exactly...well, I still wanna get my hands on a Gauss Gun, but most of the Monolithers that use them are on the rooftops of Pripyat, and you can't really get there easily... You might just get killed also..
It would be a two man job getting one of them, 1 to carry it along with it's ammo, the other to cover the guy carrying it.
There is one in the Factory buildings in Dark Valley, see who wants to join in the job of getting it. Once it's here we can store it in the Bar for emergencies.
Yes, and a right bloody menace they are with them as well, sneaking around Pripyat is bad enough without having those fanatics taking pot shots at you from various roofs armed with Gauss guns as well.
Yeah....I almost got killed a time when I came back from CNPP into Pripyat, and met a whole pack of snorks... Yeah, I know...you can dodge these fools easily but the problem was...I was low on ammo. I had to wait entire hours in a deserted building for a Monolith patrol to get the hell out of my way.
Had the same problem coming back from Yantar once, going through the wild territory, had to get up on the overhead crane till the pack of dogs cleared off. Was low on buckshot as I was carrying some Scientific goodies to sell in the Bar.
The dogs aren't the only problem...one time when I was in the Wild Territory, I had to spend a few grenades to kill mercenary squads...
I had managed to avoid the mercs, had left Yantar at about 01:45, and took a wide swing round the building site and then headed for the crashed copter, that's when the dogs got got my scent. made to the overhead crane.
Damn Blind Dogs...they might be weak but if they find you low on ammo and if they're a whole pack, you're done with unless you run. I once saw some Stalker dashing through the whole Wild Territory since he knew where every anomaly was, and he dashed only because he didn't want any unnecessary attention.. And where are the anomalies...there usually aren't any people, at least...living ones. Better to avoid some enemies if you carry valuable loot..
True, didn't fancy bumping into that Merc outfit carrying valuable scientific suits, they carry a good price, but I took a risk, carried only enough ammo, medic kits etc to get me through, ate before I left Yantar, and drank 2 energy drinks just before the Merc outpost. Didn't plan on the pack of Blind Dogs and that was nearly the death of me.
Yeah well...the Zone is unpredictable..who knows? Maybe one day a Pseudogiant will attack the Bar.. Someone would have to bring a rocket launcher if that happens...
There is a rocket launcher in the old factory at Dark Valley, it's a two man job getting it. One to carry the launcher and ammo, the other to cover the guy carrying it, once it's here we can keep it in the Bar for emergencies, ammo is scarce for it, but that can be picked up whenever any is found.
Yeah...better get it ASAP. Who knows?... Maybe mutants actually have minds of their own and they plot against us... So we can't let them decide to attack the Bar... I don't wanna wake up completely drunk in a morning while under attack by hordes of zombies and izloms...
Mutants with minds of their own!! They can plan and arrange tactics, lets hope they don't evolve that fast, wipe them out before they start developing such abilities.
Well, you gotta admit...the Controller must have some "intelligence" since he just boils your brain... And also when he attacks you directly he just looks like Yoda using Force Push...
The controller is strange phenomenon, displaying some human similarities but now appearing happy to walk slowly around the Zone, dangerous at distance and when facing you, but get in close with a knife or behind one with a rifle and he is almost defenseless, very strange.
Yeah...when drunk Stalkers approach a Controller with a knife...the Controller just walks away...pretty weird...
The Controller probably thinks "Oh man that guy is so drunk I can't screw his brain anymore than the vodka has".
Perhaps those Scientists might know more about this.
So you've discovered another benefit the vodka gives...immunity against Controllers!
At least you only have a hangover after vodka, not be a zombie when a Controller has finished with you.
The health giving properties of vodka!
You know the one mutant that I have trouble nailing is the Snork, I don't know what my problem is with them but I can count on one hand the amount of times I have taken one down with one or two rounds not matter what rifle I use, I don't know, them things just get me every time.
As soon as they prepare jumping at you, move aside then shoot them in the head! Damn little things **** me off too. Maybe you remember the time I came back from CNPP to Pripyat with low ammunition and I had to avoid those animals to survive...
That area to the side of the old hotel in Pripyat, yes I remember.
I hope there are some kind of "Snork Hunters" or "Snork stalkers"... These beasts need to be exterminated!
That's one job I won't be applying for, Wild boar hunting, now that's a different story, with added bonus of food. Though you need a few beers to wash that down with!
Well as soon as you find a good sniping spot...you can take down lots of snorks!
It's a good plan but....once you have cleared the area, the next time you return to it Bandits have moved in!
They are the opportunists of the Zone, let someone else do the dangerous work and then they just take over once it's safe.
Yeah exactly...and they are a nuisance mostly when you're low on ammo...but oh well, most of the time a grenade does the job.
