    We move back towards our 'little bunker'.
    Even here, on our safe haven island, there are still zombies.
    Hoffnug island , 'hope' in the Germanic languages.
    It's early evening now, but the zombies are still around as we move back to our little base.
    Where do they all come from?
    Always, I have more questions, and am concerned for the sanity of myself and the other team members.
    Examining my left arm, it looks better. Frank takes another dose of antibiotics, well we all know you have to take them for a few days to stave off infection. Dave changes his bandages as I keep watch.
    We hold another 'staff meeting'.
    Although food shouldn't be an issue (the snares have given us all fresh meat, and the indoor grow-pots are doing well), we have a problem with powering everything.
    We have to make some serious choices here. The main generator is down to half a tank now. We used the heavy oil to keep the ferry running.
    It doesn't look like any outside help is coming soon.
    What can we do without?

    Liam,

    All I can do is hope this note finds you one day. I don’t have much time. The dead are restless tonight. More than usual. Perhaps it’s the full moon, or the slight chill in the air, or perhaps it’s nothing at all. I don’t have any moves left. I’ve played all my cards. If you are reading this then I am already dead.

    I need you to understand that I didn’t have a choice. I didn’t abandon you. I tried to come back for you but the dead were there at every turn. Mom and Hannah didn’t make it. Please forgive me.

    I love you son. This isn't the life I wanted for you. Stay off the roads. Watch your back. Always keep a bullet in the chamber.

    -Henry

    *non story material* I want to say I think this thread is a brilliant idea and fun way to bring the community together. Too many survival games right now lack a proper back story. I've had a lot of fun reading through what everyone has been coming up with and it is driving my hype levels through the roof!

    I prayed tonight. Figured It’s been awhile since the lord and I had a good talk. I thanked him for all my blessings. I was tired and the lord gave me the sweet lullaby of growling dead to listen too. I was cold and the lord made it snow even harder. I was hungry and the lord gave me a two course meal of piss and shit.

    I told him about Sharon. Pammy. Timothy. Gareth. Angela. The old man who’s name I never bothered to learn. I gave him the nitty and gritty details. I let him know exactly how they all died. Oh but I'm sure they were comforted by the fact that this is all part of his grand plan as they were ripped apart by tooth and nail.

    My little Pammy. I told him about her piercing screams. Screams I hear every night. Screams that will haunt me everyday of this blasted nightmarish hell we live in. Thank you lord. Thank you for destroying everything I’ve ever known.

    For all my jesting I can say the big man above has shown me one kindness. An escape. I found a bullet today. One. Single. Bullet. Our lord is a generous one.

    Oh Drat.
    I'm in a right state just now.
    I don't think it's physical - we're all eating quite well, getting fresh meat, vegetables as well as dried and canned food in to our diets.
    Bringing everything we know in to our situation, it's probably not that either.
    We've even been fishing off the dock this morning with some improvised rods and lines.
    Considering everything, we're not doing that bad.
    But I have nightmares, ones that happen during the day. Memories I can't shut out.
    I'm trying to keep myself occupied, to distract myself. Our little team of three is all I have left now. I'd do anything for Frank and Dave. They are my family, my friends, the only hope I have left.
    I can't keep these waking dreams away.
    When I'm rational enough to think about it clearly, it scares the [insert rude four letter word here] out of me.
    The problem is, I don't think I'm rational that much these days. Well, at least I know I'm losing it.
    The others don't know about my issues. Well, I haven't spoken about them. But they might have spotted something, we are a close team nowadays.
    I need to press on with the daily tasks.
    Dave's indoor grow-pots need watering, the snares need checking and resetting. I'll need to check the transmitter is working and see if the line printer has any new messages.
    Add to that checking the desalination plant and all the electrical equipment, well it's going to be a busy day!
    Busy is good ...

    I haven't felt like writing for a while I was still irritated by what happened with that other group they got us so easily. The guys didn't realise it but I managed to grab a weapon that those kroonys obviously looted from a gun shop. I hid it in the truck on the way back to the island, its only got one mag in it so its only for emergency. I showed the guys when we got back and we've put it in what we've designated the emergency room. The backroom where I got trapped is now our so called 'panic room' I've been working on it for the last few days. I used some of the ply wood sheets so that it's a sealed off room. I've added small peeping holes to the sides. The door is thick steel bars with a good lock. This room isn't really to stop against zombies, it's more about other survivors (hostile survivors). If they get on the island we can lock ourselves in. I've moved all the reserve ammunition, food supplies and a secondary cooker there. So if anyone gets on the island we can lock ourselves in the room fire up the generator and trap the enemies in the base and wait them out. If their trapped in the cell block we can wait them out with our supplies.

    Journal Entries - Damien

    I spotted a group of survivors today. It's been awhile. I guess there just aren't many of us left. The thick forestry has made it easy to follow close behind them without being seen. They look very well off. They even had the luxury of having three separate meals. Breakfast. Lunch. and Dinner. Hell. I am lucky if I get to eat even one of those. Maybe I'll drop in and say hello the next time they stop to eat. They wouldn't mind a guest, would they?

    ---

    Geeks : 44
    Survivors : 7

    This group is very consistent. I like it. They get up at 6 AM every morning. Stop to eat their meals at the same time every day. And make camp for the night at 8 PM sharp. I count eight in their posse. A man, woman, and child that look to be father, mother, and daughter. Two men in uniforms. Possible military background. They are the only ones that carry firearms. An elderly man. And a blonde woman who I must say looks... quite tasty.

    ---

    Geeks : 49
    Survivors : 7

    Aside from the two uniformed men most of the group are amateurs when it comes to taking out geeks. The father was almost bitten by one. He would’ve been if the other group members hadn’t helped him.

    ---

    Geeks : 50
    Survivors : 7

    I learned some names today. The child is Pammy. The blonde woman is Angela. Angela is a doll. I can’t wait to get to know her better.

    ---

    Geeks : 57
    Survivors : 8

    Old man wasn’t able to keep up with the group today. I took the opportunity to gut him. It got a little messier than usual. He saw me coming at the last second. We started fighting and some geeks decided to join in. I hung his body from a tree so he won’t get eaten. Fresh meat is a rare commodity.

    ---

    Geeks : 58
    Survivors : 8

    The group didn’t break camp today. They went searching for the old man. The blonde woman looked particularly worried, must be related. They didn’t split up. Good move, else they would have been easy pickings. Speaking of easy pickings they left everything back at camp. I managed to nab some food, just enough that it won’t be noticed.

    ---

    Geeks : 60
    Survivors : 8

    I have a plan but I’m going to need to double back for the old man.

    ---

    Geeks : 64
    Survivors : 8

    I learned a little bit of biology today. Or anatomy. Whatever you would call mutilating a human and cutting out chunks of meat with a knife.

    ---

    Geeks : 78
    Survivors : 13

    Most people think the geeks are monsters. But not me. They are a tool, weapon, and force of nature. With a lot of fresh meat and a bit of luck I was able amass a large flock and shepherd them into the group's camp. It was the dead of night. They didn’t know what hit them. I snuck through the chaos and introduced myself to Angela. The look in her eyes as I drove my knife into her flesh. The panic of everyone fighting for their lives. The screams of agony as the child was torn apart. It was all so... exhilarating. I believe the father escaped, haven’t found his body among the mess yet. Maybe he’ll turn up. After all there are a lot of bodies.

    @LoneWolf726 - I have no objections to your post myself, but I'd like you to take in to consideration modern day 'PC' thoughts.
    It's sad I even have to mention that, but it is the modern era :(
    There must be more to your story, I'd like to read it ...

    @Dr.J I know what you mean. No worries.

    Totally up to the developers if they want to do something with it. I thought it would be interesting to get the perspective of someone mentally unstable. I had plans to make him even more sick in the head but figured I shouldn't go to over the top.

    I also think there is more to Damien's story. ^_^

    After the disastrous encounter with the other survivors, Dave has set up a safe room down in our little bunker at the docks. Some food, some ammunition, what we might need to defend against hostile people.
    We've been using the pickup truck to ferry supplies up to the old prison, the RV is a bit slow and heavy for quick journeys - we've made it in to as much of an armoured vehicle as we can. It's hard to see where you're going, hard to steer.
    This morning the fan belt failed on the truck. It almost overheated and cooked the engine.
    But we had a spare we found at the garage in Addersfield. It's not exactly the right size, and squeals like mad. But at least the thing still runs.
    The food situation isn't too bad, the snares still give us rabbits, the indoor grow pots are looking good and we still have some dried food. Fishing off the dock with our crafted lines is a bit hit and miss, but worth doing.
    Franks leg is looking better, but he continues to take antibiotics (though not as many painkillers).
    Forgive the pun, but living at the old prison island is driving us 'stir crazy'.
    At least one of us now normally watched the dock area.
    But we still see the occasional zombie.
    There isn't a very good map of this island. Well, it was a prison.
    Perhaps we ought to perform a full sweep of it, to see if we can clear out the zombies?
    There are come things we're running short of that we can't craft.
    Medical supplies in particular.
    We can craft bandages OK, but not anything else.

    i have an explanation for where the zombies came from

    turtle head bay was a dumping ground for chemicals. the chemicals then infected the nearby fish with the zombie virus which was then spread by fishermen selling they're catches to locals of the island who would then eat the fish and be infected by the virus.

    Is chemical dumping the reason for the strange smell at Turtle Head bay?
    That might be an easy explanation ... could there be something more sinister we haven't found yet?

    They are everywhere ... I don't know myself what 'triggered' the outbreak, all I can say is our small team keep getting attacked.
    Zombies or other survivors, well they sort of meld together these days.
    That thought scares me more than trying to survive.
    I'm losing it, I'm going down hill rapidly. I'm living day by day. I do my best to support our little team, but they must have spotted I'm not 100% by now.
    That's more scary than zombies. What if they decide I'm not part of the survival picture?
    We've been through so much together, survived so long.
    The good news is Frank seems to be recovering from his leg injury.
    Fishing and trapping are also going well, as are our crafting skills.
    But we'll need to visit the mainland again soon for the things we can't make.
    There, we might run in to other people, or zombies.
    I'm not sure how I will cope with that.
    I'm scared.
    I'm scared of myself.

    For 17 years my father hosted this show and his father for 23 years and then i became host in they're image and then the outbreak came and i was host for 3 weeks. the military came and broadcast-ed an emergency message and i was terrified i didn't want to believe what i heard it was just so insane that the dead could attack the living they're dead. i cant stay here any longer im going to the docks to catch a boat if you find this note please dont let the station go to waste help those who haven't turned don't waste it with ramblings of conspiracy theories

    There's no new contact with the outside world.
    Perhaps we'll power down the transmitter?
    You would have thought someone would have been in touch by now, it they could.
    I'm scared.
    I don't think I've ever been more scared in my life.
    It's not the zombies that frighten me the most, it's me.
    I hardly manage to sleep anymore [possibly just like the Dev team?]. I worry about everything and anything. Is there any help out there? Can we contain the zombie threat? How can we all "Survive the Nights"?

    Time is slipping away...
    I feel myself becoming... something different.
    I can feel the... change...
    Never did I think I would become the thing I feared the most...
    Never did I believe that this world would become this... disastrous...
    Time is all I have left to hope for...
    Time is... slipping away.
    So am I...

    Run !
    Stay Away !

    Don't trust these people... They will take everything from you.
    They are just tricking you into joining their "Cult".
    We thought they would be nice and friendly, they dressed respectful, spoke with accents, took us in without hesitation...
    We should have known that the nice people would be the most feared...
    We should have known that they were the people stringing others up like live stock and ripping their innards out...
    All along the highway, the bodies, the children... Oh god...
    My husband was taken, now it's just me and my son.
    I don't think that we can go back for him.
    I'm sorry Bill, I hope that you will forgive me... I love you...

    I don't know how long I'll be able to survive. Our little team has accomplished so much. Together, we've been to hell and back, many times. Without Dave and Frank, I wouldn't have made it. I'd have used the pistol.
    I work on the daily stuff. Looking after the plants, the power, checking the transmitter, the snares, the water, every mundane task.
    It's about all I'm capable of now.
    Well, I only have one hand. Oh drat, how long ago was it I implored the others to cut it off after being bitten?
    My memory is not as good as it should be.
    I just hope that together, we can "Survive the Nights"
