More than likely this will take place in Virginia.
I'm not exactly sure where, but I'm looking into large tracts of land to play around on.
The reasons are that it's a nice climate most of the year, as well as pretty wooded, and cheap land.
Also I happen to be from there. As to my Canadian Friends, your welcome to join us. This isn't a nationalist gathering. It's a friendly game about surviving the Zone.
The biggest question is the Cost, both to the player and to myself. While I'd love to have everyone just show up and go at it, it will take a small fortune to get this started. Aside for the cost of buying the land I'll need to build bases and shelters, that even crude would cost at minimum $10,000-20,000. Not to mention all the little things to make it truly a stalker experience.
So, I'm probably going to charge. 100 per person will be the most I want to, because I really don't want to take away from the experience. Obviously this won't pay for the project, but at least it's a start.
I'll start accepting donations as well as investors when I have the location and budget firmly sqaured away. Eventually I want this to be profitable, just to keep it going.
