Hey everyone! I appreciate you sharing your loglines with me.

After reading them, I highly suggest checking out Chris Lockhart’s Stage32 webinar. Besides being the WME story editor, he’s a wonderful teacher and all around nice guy.

Part of the synopsis:

"The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is the most dangerous and mysterious place on Earth. A place where incomprehensible and dangerous phenomena occur in the form of physical anomalies and psy-radiation.

This area is inhabited by monsters and mutants, the law of survival reigns there, and it is easy for a person to die or turn into a zombie, devoid of reason and consciousness. "
