Survivor Diary - the last log

Paper is a valuable resource in the Wasteland. Electronics became unreliable, and shopping lists, maps, calendars, friends’ callsigns, diaries with thoughts, observations and theories - everything worth keeping recorded - returned to battered paper notebooks, stashed away in survivors’ cabins. Lately survivors started to find abandoned cars in the desert: no damage, a full tank of gas, valuable stuff in cargo holds, no blood… And no human presence whatsoever. Not a trace in the car or around it. Now all Faction leaders ordered a mandatory search of abandoned cars for any notes and diaries in the hopes to figure out what happened from the diaries’ last logs.  

You are alone in the Wasteland, moving through the Sepulchre of the dead cities, desert valleys and shabby postapocalyptic settlements, nestled among the ruins. Have you seen something strange, inexplicable or scary during your travels? Write a diary entry about it to remember - and maybe get a reward from the Faction leaders? And if your luck runs out - maybe the reward will go to the survivor who finds your notebook under the driver seat in the empty car. 

The task: compose a diary entry about any mysterious, inexplicable event you’ve seen while travelling across the Wastelands. Or, maybe, you’ve met someone strange and scary and this meeting doesn’t come out of your mind?
