A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 5

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Turned into a Five Act. What can I say?   Half the lights were out in the stairway. “The radio thing is down there?” Yuri tried to keep the reluctance out of his voice. Iosif switched his flashlight on. “Bottom floor.” The stark purple-white light carved his face in hard shadows, made him look ghoulish. … Continue reading “A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 5”

A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 4

Posted on December 6th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Iosif rummaged through the musty cardboard boxes lining the plywood shelves. “Special Project 57,” he said distractedly. “I was a Junior Researcher.” Yuri swigged from his canteen and nodded like he knew what the hell that meant. He spat tepid water and motioned for Iosif to continue, trying for the ‘strong, silent’ attitude – not … Continue reading “A Prayer to Saint Strelok – Part 4”

A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3

At first Yuri thought Sasha had given him the headache; a clip and a half of her painful chatter followed by his mad dash through the swamp, gulping down bog stench and terror. But that was almost an hour ago and the throb was only getting worse. Every step deeper into the Chernya was like … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok – part 3”

Review: Umarex Legends MP 40 BB Gun

Posted on November 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

  Well it’s not as if I don’t already have a decent selection of BB and Pellet guns but the history geek in me had to pick one of these up when Pyramyd Air had a sale and I had a bit of extra coin. A full metal construction, full auto replica firearm with bolt … Continue reading “Review: Umarex Legends MP 40 BB Gun”

A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2

Posted on November 25th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

  It was worse than he feared, the Wet Valley. Clouds of bugs, calf-deep mud, and the rotten, low tide stink… Gah! It was so rank it burned the hairs in his nose. Yuri pulled his scarf up so as to not puke breakfast. Visibility was crap in the tall grass and the hiss of … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok, Part 2”

A Prayer to St. Strelok. Part 1

Posted on November 20th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

A bit of STALKER fiction: A PRAYER TO ST. STRELOK. The tourists were whining again. Not even fifteen kilometers in and the eggheads are complaining: they are out of breath –  their feet hurt – the packs are heavy – when is the next stop so we can rest? Hadn’t he, Yuri Bonyev, always the … Continue reading “A Prayer to St. Strelok. Part 1”

New Kowloon. 2069 Shenghua Street, District 5. LNK The members of Blue Rose Import/Export were enjoying a meal in the back room of The Osaka Shuffle when a smartly dressed woman approached them. She apologized for interrupting, sat down and explained with great hesitation she needed their help to locate her missing daughter. “It’s been … Continue reading “Missing Persons – Part 1”

Why STALKER?

Posted on November 10th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

As the setting for a skirmish wargame setting? Are you kidding? If you have ever played any of the STALKER PC games, you shouldn’t be asking that question. And if you haven’t played STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, Call of Pripyat, or Clear Sky, you need to get on that. Right now. Dark, brooding, creeping dread … Continue reading “Why STALKER?”

Interface Zero 2.0 @ NK69

Posted on October 26th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

More RPG game prep last Tuesday evening. We finished up Character Creation then read through a bit of game setting fluff on New Hong Kong in 2069. After, we ran through another simple scenario to hammer out the combat mechanics. (It’s taking me a bit to wrap my head around the granularity and pace of … Continue reading “Interface Zero 2.0 @ NK69”

Chechen Wars 28mm Kickstarter

Posted on October 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Kickstarter… Yeah I know. Great idea – not always the best experience. Incessant delays, poor communications, long-winded excuses, sub- par products, partial fulfillment… I’m 50/50 Good to Bad projects over the past five years. And lately, I’ve given up altogether. It’s just not worth the hassle. Sure, nice figs/game/terrain but I’ll wait until they’re available … Continue reading “Chechen Wars 28mm Kickstarter”

Savage Worlds Test Drive

Posted on October 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Gave the Savage Worlds combat system a quick test drive last week. Broke out a couple of my scratch-built interior boards and had a salvage crew escort a technician through an abandoned research facility. Lights were out but of course the automated defenses were still online. Here are some quick shots   There were five … Continue reading “Savage Worlds Test Drive”
