The Scavenger - Chapter 1
Chapter 1 - SCAVENGING JOB
Konochev district, Ore Town, Oslow, Parallel Universe
“What do you mean, I was reassigned?!” Liam Solokov asked his district leader Marik Konochev.
“Like I said, Liam” he said “There was an accident at your mine. Rescues are underway. In the meantime, I looked for a job for you so you could pay up the rent. This was the only one”
“For fuck sake, man” Liam argued “Is there anything better? One that would give me enough pay in one go?”
Marik’s reply went like this. “Sorry. You either take it, or go kill someone and take their job.”
Liam groaned. Scavenger was not something he wanted to be. The wage varied, depending on what was collected. With the addition of the scorching heat of the Oslow desert, and risk of getting ambushed and killed, it was a definite reason why he wanted to avoided most.
But there was no other free slots. And he needed the pay.
“Fine” he took

Literature
The Battalions - The Survivors of Zadrea
Most of Zadrea population are refugees from the USK's domination. They came here and built their homes after their old homes were taken away. Many died to build, but as their motto said: "The snow may kill us, but the city must survive!"
Cities:
There are 3 cities: Frozeberg City, Greenfield, and Refuge Shore
Frozeberg City suffered strong winter. Summer was only three weeks long, and it wasn’t even above -10 Celcius. Rumor had it that Kyurem often passed or even reside near this place. Temperature is always lower than -20 Celcius. It wasn't impossible to live, but it was a harsh place to thrive.
The iconic landmark of this place was the massive heat generator in the middle of the city, heating the city from it and its steam hubs set up around in outer rim of the city. Coal was their abundant resource that seemed to be infinite. This coal was the fuel and the lifeline of the city. Without it, the city died as the heaters dimmed.
Greenfield is hardly to be considered a town

Literature
The Battalion - Oslow Scavenger
They were the militia that guarded the mining operations in Oslow. As the name states, they are also scavengers.
Cities:
Ore Town was the capital and the only city of Oslow. It was once a mining colony. Now populated with various kind of people, it grew into a city.
The city was never built tall. It was built deep. Behind the entrance of the city lies vast pathways leading to different districts of the city. Getting lost is a possibility, but the most dangerous would be the cave ins. Some houses were crushed when it happens
Military:
Oslow Scavengers, while lacked of proper firearms, they are good at improvising it. All scavengers were taught how to craft ammunition and weapons from scraps, although they will need a workshop for that. Some scavengers, especially for those who had been to the northern forested part of Oslow, they knew how to make drugs and stimulants. They only used them to enhanced their performance in battle. Abusing them is punishable from imprisonment

Chapter 1 - SCAVENGING JOB

Konochev district, Ore Town, Oslow, Parallel Universe

“What do you mean, I was reassigned?!” Liam Solokov asked his district leader Marik Konochev.

“Like I said, Liam” he said “There was an accident at your mine. Rescues are underway. In the meantime, I looked for a job for you so you could pay up the rent. This was the only one”

“For fuck sake, man” Liam argued “Is there anything better? One that would give me enough pay in one go?”

Marik’s reply went like this. “Sorry. You either take it, or go kill someone and take their job.”

Liam groaned. Scavenger was not something he wanted to be. The wage varied, depending on what was collected. With the addition of the scorching heat of the Oslow desert, and risk of getting ambushed and killed, it was a definite reason why he wanted to avoided most.

But there was no other free slots. And he needed the pay.

“Fine” he took the job in defeat. “I’ll go” He turned to his Lairon. “Come on, Metall. We’ve got work to do.”

Michael ‘Metall’ Solokov nodded. The two then left for the armory. There, Liam grabbed the HOMELAND SAR20, low-tier semi-automatic rifle with decent durability and average accuracy. He grabbed a few magazines, and a couple bags filled with rations enough for two people to last for a few days. He saddled on Metall’s back, and walked out into the desert.

This was how his life was ever. When he was young, his father, an Aggron, died in a cave in. His mother then fell ill. When he was able to work, he worked hard to get her treatment. But in the end, she died.

It was only him and Metall after that. It was how their lives went by. Work, get paid, pay the rent. An endless cycle of life.

But it was how the Oslow Scavengers were. There was no government left in this damned country after they were driven into this wasteland when they lost a war with the USK. Food became a rarity. Metal scraps and ores became money. Each talks would mostly have the guns do the talking.

And they cannot changed. Mining and warfare were all they had left.

Liam looked around for any signs of metallic surfaces. Here, it worth more than gold. If one was offered a coin, they would melt it into bullets. If a paper bill was giving, it would be used as insulation or burn as fuel. Food and medicine worth even more here, but those consumables were a rarity, and tended to be well-guarded.

And don’t even start on laws and order. It was a very bloody one since there was no government. Everyone was free to do anything, but there would always be those, like the district leaders, to keep them in line. Punishment varied, from fine payment to death.

Others may asked how they can lived like this. They may say it was uncivilized, but this was how Oslow Scavenger lived

-0-

It had been two days since they took the job. Liam and Metall came to a stop at a rusted car. It was clear that this site was picked clean before, so he doubted to find anything of value here.

The sun no longer showed its light. He decided to take a break. Their findings so far were a few heaps of metal scraps and some used shell casings, not enough to pay the fee.

Then he heard a commotion. He grabbed the gun and pointed at the direction. “Ferium!”

“Rust!” Called the shadowed figure that approached him. He dressed in standard Kalash Trooper, and armed with Autofire weapon. Behind him walked a squad in similar dress, and a Sandile.

“Never thought to see you here” he said. “Identify yourself”

“Liam Solokov. Scavenger. Konochev district” Liam spoke “You?”

“Kane Dennis. Kalash Trooper. Tavarik district” said the Kalash Trooper.

“What are you doing here?” Liam asked.

Kane looked around, watching for any eavesdroppers. Seeing the coast cleared of them, he spoke, “Got a report of a suspicious activity out here. Could be USK. The Leader sent us to investigate. Raid if possible.”

At the word raid, Liam and Metall’s ears perked up. Raiding could give them the fund they needed to pay the rent, and perhaps some extras. It would be scavenging if the owner is dead. “Can we come with?” he asked.

“I would say no, but we could use someone to keep an eye out when we are going in” Kane replied. “Here. Take this walkie-talkie and follow us”

-0-

The squad perched on the hill. Down the hill, they could see a camp. After some time observing, they found out it was not a camp.

“It’s a fucking outpost” Kane said, pulling his eyes away from the binoculars. “Light cars and watchtowers… Machine gun emplacement...”

Liam took binoculars and looked at the people below. “I’ve never seen those uniforms before…” he noted. “Definitely not USK”

“They’re trespassers still. We’ll show them what we do with trespassers” Kane looked at his men. “Armed up. We’re going in.” He then turned to the Solokov brothers. “You two. Keep a lookout”

“Will do” Liam replied, keeping his eyes looking through the binoculars.

He looked at the base as the Kalash Troopers snuck towards the entrance. A few unknowns were patrolling, while one were manning the MG. He saw Kane chucking a dynamite at the emplacement.

And as it was, boom went the dynamite.

-0-

The squad cleared the entrance with an element of surprised. They breached into the camp quickly, guns drawn.

But that element was lost real quick. Every single one of the tent’s occupants came out guns drawn. Although Kalash Troopers were well trained to hand a siege, this one was out of there hands already because two had already been killed.

“Fuck! This is no somebody! This is fucking military!” said Kane’s Sandile.

“Pull back! We gotta…” Another Kalash Trooper cried before getting shot in the head.

Now there was only Kane and his Sandile left. Kane saw no way out of this. He called Liam. “Liam! Get out now!”

The two were then blasted away by a rapid gunfire.

-0-

Liam saw it all. A raid went wrong. The moment they entered the camp became their deaths. He saw Kane went down, and was even double tapped.

Then, the guy who double tapped Kane, looked at his direction. He seemed to order something, and the other men then ran to the cars. He knew. He knew where Liam was.

“Shit! Metall! We got to run now!” Liam shouted. He hopped on Metall’s back and strode away quickly.

But even with a headstart, he could hear the sound of wheels kicking the sand and dust up. He knew that a Lairon was not a perfect Pokemon to ride. Sooner or later, those cars will catch up to them. The only way to lose them was to hide.

Then he remembered. Yesterday, he found a ruin of a mine. Its cavern were deep, so deep one could get lost. They could lay low there.

He kept on running, never to hear the sound of wheels braking.

-0-

The Solokov brothers arrived at the abandoned mine. Liam looked back, seeing no cloud of dust and sand trailing anywhere. “Guess they must’ve give up...” he concluded.

Metall collapsed, body sank into the sand.. Running was not something of his best. He panted in exhaustion before drifting away into sleep.
“Yeah, sleep tight” Liam replied “I’ll keep watch tonight” He pulled out the SAR20 rifle and looked into the distance.

Those people at that base. They were not an easy picking. But if they were not the USK army, then who were they? He wandered through the list of possibilities, waiting for the sun to rise up the horizon.

Little did he know, the adventure was just the beginning. They were yet to know that this scavenging job had led them to something more that would change their lives, and the Oslow Scavenger, forever.

Truth is, I've recently gotten into Diablo series.

And also, I planned to write a Diablo fanfic. However, I was in a writer block on it, so I looked to find ideas

It set after Diablo 3, but involved two Soulstones and set in the modern day. A new Black one, and a white one

That's a very optimistic point of view: Sanctuary has a chance of reaching the modern days with all this shit that's going on around it. XDDD

But I like the idea, though :) It sounds like a good take on things, especially with angels and demons in the mix. At least you will have the immortal canon characters to whom the readers can tether themselves among all the new characters and world.

It's called the Eternal Conflict for a reason.

Main concept is after the Reaper of Souls incident, Humanity realized that peace would never be achieve if angels and demons kept raging war on the mortal realm. And since the incident was cause by Malthael, who was an Archangel, fear and terror rose. If there's an angel wanted them dead, who knows how many more angels wanted to do the same.

The Nephalem came up with a plan. Using Cain's book, they gathered as much knowledge as they could to forge the new Black Soulstone. They also made the White Soulstone. The mortals then launched their attacks on to Heaven and Hell. They succeeded and sealed the Archangels into the White Soulstone, and the Lord of Evils into the new Black Soulstone.

To ensure that no one will have a hand on it, the Soulstones are to be sealed inside human vessels. The first were the Nephalem's twin offspring

That's all I had so far
