Day Z Photo Diary 2 -- Murder Mystery Castle


To be continued

We exchange goodbyes and pose for a final photo, but I liked this candid one better—it captures the way we must've looked when we emerged from woods several times that afternoon, and a small aspect of our teamwork. Our decisions of where to go, to pull the trigger when we maybe shouldn't have, to check out a house, to pick up a weapon—that web of actions shaped our afternoon.

We form a Steam group to commemorate the day and make it easy to play together in the future. “ The Responsible Adventures of Shampoo Holmes ,” named for our strange detective work in the tower. The group description:

  • DIRECTIVE ONE: acquire friendship
  • DIRECTIVE TWO: acquire guns
  • DIRECTIVE THREE: acquire memories
