are not very friendly with each other. Expect some violence between them. Freedom and Duty should not ally under any circumstances unless authorized by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R Department lead.
Duty is a highly organized, militaristic faction that is almost a clone of the Ukrainian army. However, more specifically, the 704th God's Hand regiment, D company, is one of the most highly trained units in the entire faction. Lead by a Colonel, this group continues to wreak havoc on all those who oppose the great nation of Ukraine, and Duty itself. Their greatest enemy being the anarchists (Freedom), there's not a single bullet inside of their weapons that wasn't created to take the life of an anarchist, and if you find yourself allied with the anarchists, beware: Your life expectancy isn't very long.
Freedom is a loosely, tied together group full of fanatical anarchists who want to open up the Zone to the world. They despise Duty, as both have completely opposite views, and the two have never been known to get along. See a dead Duty member? Expect the bullet inside to be that of a Freedomer's assault weapon.Monolith
are religious fanatics who worship the mysterious Monolith. The Monolith cultists try to isolate themselves from everybody else, and make frequent attempts at converting loners to their cause.Bloodsuckers
is a name given to a unique type of mutant who has earned it's name sucking the life out of S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs just like you. If you're not careful, and you travel alone, be wary: For there's no where you can hide, and your stamina is limited. Good luck out there alone, and always know you can take comfort in knowing that in large groups, there will always be somebody slower than you.
Bloodsuckers typically stay away from large pockets of humans.The traders
, although they could be anyone in the Zone who sells or buys things from other people, are typically overweight, money hogging rich bastards with access to all of the latest high-tech weaponry and supplies to keep your average loner pumping through the harsh environment of the Zone. These are your drug dealers, your weapon smugglers, your food vendors, your drinking fountains, your information venue, and your opportunity to earn money, and become the richest S.T.A.L.K.E.R in the Zone.The Ukrainian Military
, in a perfect world, controls the entire Zone. However, although they're in fact surrounding the Zone, they have no real control on what goes on inside. The country of Ukraine dispatched their military to control the Zone, and those within it. Typically, if you see a soldier in the Ukrainian military, you should run, because otherwise you'll most likely bite the bullet. Or more precisely: Bullets.The Ecologists
study the Zone, and the unnatural happenings within them. They study artifacts, anomalies, mutants, you name it. Anything to further their, and the country of Ukraine's understanding of the Zone. However, if they snoop around too much, as they often do, they tend to become a threat, or more specifically: A liability. Bandits
are common in the zone, it's a way of life, getting robbed of your possessions is very common, bandits could look like anyone, and be anyone. It's best to stick in groups of two or more to lessen your chances of being confronted by such a band of deviants.Mercenaries
are people who work for money. Doesn't matter what it is, if they're getting paid, they'll most likely do it.
