Among these are the Stalkers, assorted groups of mercenaries, poachers and thieves that enter the zone searching for artifacts and anomalous formations that are highly sought after by certain organizations and groups.

You are a Stalker. Entering the zone you hope to make your fortune, but soon you realize that your role is to discover what really happened in Chernobyl all those years ago.
