    Dunno who set it up, but i removed a lot of the barbed wire at the northern fire station in electro. Couldn't get rid of the ones leading to the tower, i think those ones were either bugged, or someone had a big load of barbed wire.

    I swear I'm the luckiest fucker right now

    Me and my friend haven't gotten very far from the spawn area, and I decided "I'm gonna go on, try finding some supplies, then come back to where we left and disconnect." So I go to search the air strip, find a map, morphine, and a military grade flashlight. Jackpot. I then run to the military camp set near it to find some weapons/ammo. I found an M4, which was convenient because I had a gun that used the exact same ammo for it, 2 extra clips of ammo, and as I go to scavenge one of the posts, I see a zombie infront of one of the posts. I think "No big, I can kill him." He charges out of fucking NOWHERE and BREAKS MY LEGS.
    I kill him and start panicking thinking "Fucking fuck my legs we're fucked again"
    then the morphine comes in. I forgot it, and felt insanely relieved to have it on me. Ran back to where me and my friend disconnected, and overall ended my little search with an M4, Map, Better flash light, ammo for me and my friend, and a pair of almost broken legs.

    god this is addicting.

    I had a hugely lucky night (aside from clementine sniping me). After the server went down I went onto a new one and heard somebody yelling in fear before I could see anything. I had an m1911 in my face when it loaded, and the guy decided not to shoot me. We went our separate ways, and I soon found a CZ 550. After that I moved on to Cherno from Electro and didn't find much, but 2 people went into the Cherno firestation after me. I somehow fell through the wall and passed out, but they didn't notice. I climbed onto the top of the tower and watched as they ran off, and shot one in the torso with the CZ, killing him. The last guy tried to climb up the ladder right next to me and I shot him with my m1911. Now I have an AKM with 5 mags, and an ALICE pack with medical supplies and my CZwith 3 mags.

    It glows red and thus less likely to be detected, and, AFAIK it shows very bright under NVG.

    If 'Hive down' = can't load a single fucking character then yes.

    Although it sounds like a blackhawk down ripoff.

    There's a hospital along with a few military tents in the industrial quarters of Cherno, I'd suggest you look there first.

    Eventually, look for a road to Stary Sobor, which has a fair concentration of military tents. Place is dangerous though, lots of bandits around those parts.

    Another suggestion is to raid the firestations in Elektro - they spawn military grade loot and theres two of them, but it can be as equally dangerous as Stary. Just be sure you have an ALICE and a reliable primary, along with two groups of food/water before heading North.

    I steer clear of that particular area. Besides NWAF, it's the only place I've never gotten alive out of.

    Honestly, having been through much fan-fic I expected worse. Your writing is pretty good for a non-native English speaker and disclosing the background piece by piece is a good idea.
    DayZ currently has no plot and story-line. Feel free to create one.
    Thanks for your reply and criticism.
    I expected people to treat that as "just another fan-fic". Well, I don't think it is since I want to make it into a full scale story and it is only inspired by dayz and is not a description of how I lost my beans.
