DayZ Storytime is a recurring feature we run, giving the community and our staff a chance to share their favorite stories from the popular ARMA II mod, DayZ. DayZ is about surviving, about building yourself a life and a future from essentially nothing - knowing that every passing minute may be your last and that a single bullet may bring your whole world crashing down, for good.
When you play DayZ, you're creating a story - here is your chance to tell that story.
An Apology to George
As told by agippo
After applying the DayZ mod to ARMA, I sat, waiting with baited breath, the loading screen staring at me for what seemed like hours as I toyed nervously with the mouse.
Suddenly the black screen comes to life, the ticker in the bottom corner of my screen types out the words “three valleys”, then disappears, leaving me alone with a torch, a bandage and a mass of open space.
