These diaries were discovered by Lance Corporal Krishno Alekov after his unit was sent to the state of Chernarus. Nobody really knows what happened, we do know some kind of infection spread like a plague, wiping out half the population within days. What followed is blurry, reports stopped coming, radios went dead and for weeks nobody was seen alive. Eventually the army was sent in to attempt to restore order to Chernarus and hopefully bring back any survivors. Despite the hundreds of soldiers involved in project “DayZ”, only a handful returned and this journal was the only piece of physical evidence collected from Chernarus.
