Ushanka Security

“We got you covered.” After a pair of near- disastrous jobs, Yuri Bonyev, the Exclusion Zone’s premier tour guide, decided to shift his operation from a one-man outfit to a full blown salvage and security crew. For all its danger, the Zone is a busy place: Scientists, Corporations, Traders, PMCs, Criminals, Cultists, Loners… So many […]

My heartfelt appreciation to every one […]

We’ve got a typical Knight in Armor, an Alchemist, a Fire Wizard, another armored Warrior with an extra pokey spear, and a Ranger/Archer in a heroic pose. A solid, all human Dungeon Crawling party. I really like […]
