so I decided to create a thread about background stories for rust. Just a quick note : These are just my thoughts. I neither say it is the official story, nor should it become the official story. So basically what I think now is that the island we are living on is a "prison island" and the players are the prisoners, left to their fate, like in the movie " John Carpenter’s Escape from New York " or like England did with Australia, basically the "First Fleet". Well zombies won't fit in that, but they are getting removed ( see Trello ). The prisoners can do whatever they want, build houses or kill each other, because they are scumbags and no one really cares about them. The airdrops should bring some basic supplies to the prisoners. The new patrol helicopter could be there to prevent riots or hunt down "richer" "prisoners" with high tier weapons to keep something like a balance. Maybe someone else has a background story he made up for himself, willing to share it with us ? Note : Just want to get this straigt: This is just my personal story, I'm not going to state this as the official story and I'm not requesting this to become the official story of Rust. It is just my own little background story since there is no official background story right now.
