Welcome to Spustoshenyy

Population: 0 There you are, a veteran crew returning from a five-day mission. Sore backs, sore feet, tired, hungry, half your ammo gone – but still alive. And there’s a payday waiting. Even better.

Skirmish at the Luhansk Bunker

A ZONA ALFA BAT REP Luhansk Bunker. Exclusion Zone Alfa. North Sector: Threat Level 1. Remote, fortified, at the edge of the Luhansk Forest near a swamp, there was little attractive about it. Bugs, mud, vermin… not even decent salvage. Rumor was it had been cleaned out months ago. So why go? Well, the Ministry […]
