i've been cruising around the DayZ forum, and found some interesting stuff

of course, like all games of this nature, people are forming into groups. however, i found these particular groups to be the most interesting and helpful...

a group of roaming medics that will help you out for no charge if you hit them up on Steam. here's their thread:

http://www.dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=4581

a group called the Freeside Trading Co.; a large, organized group of survivors who facilitate trading between players by providing protection. pretty interesting idea, here's their thread:

http://www.dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=4581

and here's their website:

http://www.freesidetrading.co



here are a couple threads that are good reads...

DayZ Stories
http://www.dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=66

just a place where people put their personal stories of survival


DayZ Urban Legends
http://www.dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=26466

urban stories legends from within the game. some are pretty funny, and others are creepy to think about. fun read



one of the funniest things i read was a story about a guy who got killed by an axe wielding bicycle gang

first story from the DayZ Urban Legends thread, pretty good:

How about this one (which may or may not be true - thats the beauty of Urban myths), thanks to DietTaco

There is a story that I saw about a survivor finding a small light in the middle of the woods. It was a dark night and he followed the light until he saw a camp fire. Around it, he saw two bandits carrying hatchets, circling the fire, chanting strange words he could not understand. He watched as they dragged an unlucky sob around the fire, blood spewing out of his neck. As he finally regained conciousness he yelled out into direct chat, "JUST KILL ME DAMNIT!" They hatcheted him again to put him back into unconciousness. He obviously had his legs broken and couldn't escape, but he strangely maintained his life.

The survivor neared, unfortunately with no weapon, and saw the deadly truth: they were blood packing the victim, over and over and over again... At last, for one final time, the victim regained conciousness and killed himself by respawning, the sound of flies emerging at last.

The bandits then turned towards the darkest depths of the woods and said, "you're next."

 The ambush of Cherno

After escaping from elektro with my backpack loaded with medical supplies I decided to head inland and hit some of the smaller towns to keep my profile low. I wanted to get some canned supplies and a hunting knife, I had given mine to Ahren before he got killed. Didn't really matter, I was shot as well so I needed to reup my hunting gear.  I also needed to  find a spot in the woods to load up my tent with so I would have a short run to it if the need arised.

I went northwest along the power lines and headed North to Pusta, which is nothing more than a farm and a small group of buildings in farming country. It would probably have a knife and some animals to kill which is a bonus, plus there is a water well behind one of the buildings to fill my canteen. I decided this would be a good area to make camp.

I used my binoculars and scoped out the town and didn't see any movement besides a few zombies slowly walking around. If they are agitated, it's a good sign that someone else Is around.

I slowly walked in to town and was surprised by a z coming around a corner, I took a hit and started bleeding but I silently took out the undead with my trusty hatchet. Unfortunately a couple of other z's were close by so I couldn't bandage myself, I quietly snuck into a house and stopped the blood flow. I was down to 7000 blood. I don't know what happened but 3 z's got aggroed and rushed me in the house, I backed up in a corner and started chopping, I made it through but I was down to 5000 blood, I needed to find some game and a hunting knife. I made my way out the door and stopped to fill my canteen, there were 3 or 4 z's around me, but they were calm, so I left them alone, besides with my blood level, if I take a swipe, I'm done for. After filling my canteen I headed up to the barn, all I found was a can of beans and a enfield with 2 mags. I was debating taking the enfield, but it's called the dinner bell for a reason. One shot and every Z in town would be after me. I decided to leave it alone. I headed out the back door and looked to my left and saw what I was looking for, a hunting knife! I quickly stowed it and headed up into the woods to scope the surrounding fields for a cow which would givve me 8 steaks and increase my blood by 6400.

As I was sitting there someone came over the side chat. His name was J and he was trapped in the gas station west of cherno with a broken leg. He said he was a newb and needed help. I decided not to respond, I wanted to see how this played out.

Just ahead I could see a pig slowly grazing, it wasn't the cow I was looking for, but it would give me 5 steaks. I figured I could consume them and find another and bring me back up to 12000 and still have a couple steaks left over. I snuck up behind the animal and one swiped him and quickly knelt to gut the animal. I opened my inventory to rearrange some things and for some reason I could only pick up one steak. I started moving things into my backpack and accidently moved my tent in there, oh crap, my tent was gone. (it's one of the glitches in the game, sometimes you lose stuff)

I still couldn't pick up the pig meat, so I went back into the woods and cooked my game and brought up my blood by 800.

J was still calling out for help when a player by the name of S came across the chat and said he was a ways away but he would try and work down to him. I decided to see this. I typed onto the side chat that I had morphine, I would work my way down to after I killed a cow, I wanted to make sure I had full blood before I headed to cherno.

I was scoping out the lower field when I saw what I was looking for, a cow! I started running down to it to make this quick when I noticed off to my right behind some bushes a small shack. I looked around and couldn't see any z's so I continued running down to the animal, just at that moment two z's came rushing me out of the bushes, oh crap. I started backing up swinging my hatchet and got hit several times, I took out the first one and a moment later the other. I was bleeding out, I quickly bandaged myself and looked at my blood, I was at 820, everything was gray and shaking, I needed that cow and I needed it now. I started walking towards the animal and was almost there when I passed out

to be continued

 When I came to about 10 seconds later the cow was still there, I spent the next several minutes walking a few steps, passing out, waking up, walking a few steps, rinse and repeat. I finally made it to the cow, killed and cleaned it. I decided not to risk passing out heading to the woods to cook my food so I pulled out some wood out of my pack ( I keep a stack just for such a emergency) and made a quick fire. After eating my 8 steaks I was just above 7000 blood. i looked around for another animal but couldn't see one.

I could still see S and J talking over chat, trying to locate each other. Since I didn't have my tent anymore I needed to head that way anyways to find one, besides I might be able to see a animal on the way there. I typed into chat that I was just northeast of them and I would head that way. I put out my fire so as not to attract bandits and Z's and started making a run to the coast.

The issue with side chat is everyone else could see it as well, I wanted to see what would happen.

I stayed in the treeline and made my way south and I could see them typing and they had found each other. A few minutes later I was north of them up the hill. I positioned myself under a bush and pulled out my binoculars. I typed into the chat, I am across the street, head up the hill and I will come to you. They responded ok and I started scanning the area looking for enemies. I couldn't see any. I scanned back over to the direction that J and S would be coming from. I saw J running and right along side him S in a ghillie suit and what looked like a cz550. I was shocked that S would risk loosing that suit and gun to help a new player. They were off to my right, when I heard someone call out over chat, I'm almost there, i have some stuff to trade, J and S both dropped to the ground when they heard that. A player named V slowly started walking from left to right towards them, they were squatting next to each other chatting and no one had shot anyone yet, I took another look around to make sure no one else was near. I decided it was now or never. I typed in chat, hold your fire I'm coming down. I stood in a squat and made my way over there and asked if anyone needed meds, S said he needed a morphine to replace the one he used on J, I put one in his backpack. I asked one of them to use a bloodbag on me and V quickly did bringing me back up to 12000 blood. I gave V a blood bag and a epi in return. Suddenly V asked if anyone needed some camo clothes. Sure I said I'll take it, you want anything in return? No he said, I have everything I need. So I quickly changed clothes and we were sitting there chatting deciding what to do next, J said he wanted to head into cherno, he had never been through the town before. S and V said sure let's go and started running down through the trees towards town.

Something didn't feel right, so I said I normally go solo, but I'll tag along for awhile but I will probably take off at some point. They said that's cool and kept running. I hugged the treeline and ran parralel to them as they kept running right into cherno, what the hell.

Just then a player by the name of A called over chat, I'm at the gas station and have a bus, but I need some morphine. V,S, and J responded which one? North or west, we just left the west. North A replied. On our way they said. I was still running north of town and came to the field, the gas station was just ahead of me over a slight hill. I caught movement to my right and saw the V,S and J run out from between the hospital and apartments and start running towrds the gas station, they reached the top of the hill and I could see them crest it and starting running down the other side.

That's when all hell broke loose. The sound of gun fire filled the air as people started screaming over global voice chat. S typed son of a bitch I'm dead, someone watch over my body! J was killed instantly as well. I backed up into the treeline and waited to see how this panned out. V typed over chat don't worry S, I have your body.

V didn't get killed. That's when the accusations started flying, you set us up you SOB! V denied it, but from the sounds of it there were several shooters and somehow V survived and A never called out again asking for morphine or mentioning the bus. I figure they were talking over mumble setting the whole thing up, I had never seen V respond to J's cry for help until he walked right over. I typed into chat, V didn't you give me the camo? A moment later he responded, yes. Why would you give me that I asked? You looked like you needed it, all you had was that axe. Thanks I said, and headed back north with a fresh set of clothes and 12000 blood.

Don't ever use side chat, and don't trust anyone, even someone who gives you camo gear.

 lol, we have had many I told you so moments, it usually works out where one of us gets killed and the other is alive and can make it to meet each other. It's only happened twice when we were both killed at the same time. When the game first came out for the first month I think the average life was 4 hours, now it's down to 30 minutes.
