: "I consider Los Angeles County as my personal demesne."
Rapace - You are actually
considered the number one operative by necra organization how do
you explain this success ?
Mr.Sivart - This is a new world.
with new rules. My success comes from one simple policy : whatever
it takes. i do not tolerate other operatives in my area of
influence (which increases every day) stealing my food. i try to
build my cache as big and as fast as possible. with a finite
number of supplies,
i need enough to last indefinitely. I consider everything in L.A
county as mine, and i do whatever i need to to get it.
- You have
lost more than a few survivors already were all these sacrifices
part of your strategy or just accidents ?
- I have had a few suvivors
bitten, then infected, then dead, but mostly they are sacrifices.
most of my loses are seniors and minors.
I have them stick around the area i find them in until they die,
either by injuries or by starving. I found a nice big green zone
with lots of locations. the green area extends for a long way and
family members usually call for help within a certain distance of
your squads, as radio range in limited. Knowing this, I stayed
around this area so they call from somewhere in the green zone.
The next one also calls from a green zone, so most of the time i
can take the last senior i got to get the next one without
wasting resources on them. Doing this, I've been able to complete
around 70-75 necra missions so far, most of them are these family
missions. i don't waste
food, water, or my skilled survivors' time and energy so they can
continue to grow my caches of supplies.
-What is your
policy about other operatives, you seem rather aggressive, is it
systematic or do you have particular enemies (and allies) ?
- As stated previously, whatever
it takes. I see all the supplies as mine, some of them I just
haven't had time to collect yet. See that unlooted gas station
over there ? Everything in it is mine. I'm just storing it there
for now and will pick up the stuff when I'm ready. if i see
another crew coming near my gas station, or whatever building it
happens to be, dead. every calorie they pick up is a calorie i
cant eat. with a limited amount of supplies in the world,
aggressiveness is the only way to ensure survival.
As far as particular enemies not really. there is the occasional
operative that runs their mouth, so i might teach them a lesson.
however it is very difficult to find specific squads, so I don't
normally go hunting, i have better things to do. its more about
preventing the stealing of my supplies.
And i think its fun. Also, it can be quite funny to me the
messages i get either over the coms or in private messages from
the necra operative commanding the killed survivors. All i can
really say to them is "You failed as a commander. Do better next
There are certain operatives that i will not attack under any
circumstances. not because i fear retaliation, but out of respect.
and other operatives that I have killed, i usually wont kill
again, unless they keep coming back, and sometimes I even offer
compensation for their loss, in the form of allowing them to
safely loot the dead bodies, or even melee weapons or a couple
days supply of water or a first aid kit or something like
- Is there a
region you consider your personal demesne and want to warn other
to avoid ?
- Yes. Los Angeles County. i
consider the entire area that SCUGS satellite covers as mine. If i
see you in my area , i will kill you. please refer to the previous
faction, the Originals, claim to be neutral about killing living
beings but seem to have established an already large net of
safehouses, eventually offering shelter to the well known killers
among their ranks. What would you answer to people seeing some
hypocrisy in this ?
- The Originals aren't a faction
in the traditional sense. its more for gathering and sharing
information. we do not make faction safehouses, or freely share
goods, with the exception of trade. We are neutral not about
killing living beings, but the act of killing living beings, (or
whatever act an individual chooses to make). Some of us like to
engage enemy squads, some of us like to help and share with other
operatives. even i give all sorts of information over the coms.
all of our members are basically factions on their own, as
individuals, and will not receive "discipline" for any action. If
one of our members gets in a "war", they are generally on their
own. the rest of the faction will not automatically come to help,
but will make an individual choice. If you make an enemy, that's
your problem. As far as i know, you can not be kicked from our
faction, and anyone can join-there are no prerequisites. we all
have leader status, and work independently.
survivors have traveled a lot, any information you'd accept to
disclose about map situation (like big red zones, overcrowded or
not areas, etc...) ?
- Well i can't give away
locations, but i can say the forest is tough. There are pockets of
extreme red, with little to no locations to loot. I don't go in
there without a few days worth of supplies. downtown la is heavily
overrun, so not a good place for unskilled survivors. plenty of
great places to set up away from there.
you'd want to add ?
- Not really. Except i am
willing to pay for information leading to landmarks that i have
not been too. If you send me info leading me to one, i will
provide compensation. most other things are pretty well covered I
think. Just have fun ! Oh, and everyone go check out ucla. its

Striker : "We do our best to help every human out there."
Salutations, lieutenant colonel. What decided you to form the
Unity League ?
Striker - With the downfall of civilization,
it became clear to me that as a species we would have to drop our
old ideologies, prejudices, and ways of thinking if we were going
to survive. We would have to unite as a species – not under gang
colors or skin color or a national flag – but under the umbrella
of mankind in general.
- Tell us
more about your ideology, would you define Unity League as a
collectivist faction, or more as an alliance of individualities
just sharing some common interest while their pursue their own
- Unity League is an attempt to pull together
the best and brightest of humanity in order to preserve the
species. Every member brings forth his own personality and traits,
and we allow… no, encourage… individualism within the structure of
the group. Our rules are few and simple: no in-fighting amongst
members, defend yourself from outside attack, and defend your
fellow man as well. Unity League has come to the aid of its own
members a number of times, as well as helped out other survivors
who are not League members.
- You are the
only leader of Unity, does it mean you take the important
decisions, or is unity working more like a council ?
- I come from a military background, and it’s
been my experience than councils and committees bog down in
bureaucracy where a strict hierarchy of command maintains order,
especially in a disorderly environment. I maintain strict
decision-making power in Unity League, but my door is open and my
radio is on at all times. I strongly encourage all members to
participate in discussions about the League’s decisions, mission,
and so forth. But ultimately, the final decision – and
responsibility – would rest with me.
- Will Unity
remain an isolated group, or do you plan to engage in diplomacy
with other factions to form a larger coalition ? Do you already
have allies (or enemies) out of the faction?
- We’re always open to trade agreements and
non-aggression pacts, and we currently have several. We’re not
looking to become one giant coalition. That would mean taking away
some autonomy from others trying to survive as well – an action
contrary to the League’s mission statement. Instead, we’ll gladly
help out others as best we can, so long as they too are trying to
salvage what’s left of humanity.
to your statuts the Unity League seem to be at the same time an
elitist group, and one pursuing noble goals, how do you conciliate
these two aspects ? How do you define the preservation of man, the
preservation of your men, or of a larger part of humanity ?
- I think our goals are noble, yes. But in
order to preserve mankind… no, not just mankind… there are many
men not worth preserving. In order to preserve the best of mankind
in a world of limited resources, someone has to set standards that
dictate who lives and who dies. We do our best to help every human
out there. But make no mistake, if you are roaming the countryside
on a killing spree, wiping out other humans, stealing supplies,
and generally creating a worse nuisance than the zeds, you’ll soon
find yourself our enemy. There is no place in today’s world for
inter-human rivalry; that is clearly not the best of mankind.
- What is
your policy with your own survivors, are you trying to save all of
them or are you ready to make some sacrifices ?
- Oskar Schindler once quoted the Talmud when
he said, ‘Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.’ We
don’t sacrifice anyone. Old, young, it doesn’t matter. In order to
create a new world from the ashes of this one, we’ve got to create
a new paradigm.
- Is there a
region you consider your personal (or faction) demesne and want to
warn other operatives not to enter ?
- Several of our operatives are set up north
of the mountains, around Lancaster and that area. We’ve got
safehouses throughout L.A. as well. We don’t lay claim to any of
the regions. If someone would like to look for supplies right next
to my primary compound, I’d be happy to help. Just don’t knock
down our safehouses, attack our teams, or steal our supplies.
you'd want to add ?
- Only that Unity League is still looking for
more members. If there’s anyone out there reading this that would
like some help, would like to belong to a group working toward a
common goal, would like to help preserve the best of mankind… I
keep a 2m radio turned on all the time and tuned to 144.200 and we
try to monitor the old citizen bands and emergency services freqs.
Give us a call.
