The Bendrie Files (Historical Compilations of G.S.M and its Members)
My story with this specific group started somewhere around February. On the day I ended up joining, I had made a joke on the discord saying to TheNutMan, "Hey you should like haze me or something." Looking back I cant believe that a little inconsequential joke would lead to so much. remember that day he landed his Anushka in SZ and shouted at me, "lets go dumbfuck." In the plane I was handcuffed and taken to the base know as "The Annex" which was a colossal base that was about 40 x 40 and about eleven floors tall. I was taken into a interrogation room and asked questions, after that I was invited to the group G.S.D (Literally no one knows what this stands for). G.S.D (as far as I know) unionized many prominent players from their smaller 2-3 person groups, such as Robert, Jono, BareWithMe, TheNutMan, Ed, Nakaya, and others. The group also held some more charecters that became more know in the community later on like, myself, Vessucite, and a few others. We were featured in one of Nylex's videos titled "Huge Weapons Deal!" The group was stable for about 2-3 months after I joined but disaster struck after the fire nation attacked many of us were banned for going inside the magic school bus flown by Adovin. We all were banned for about 2 weeks, until Nylex ended up unbaning us. Though unknown to us, someone was stealing stuff during that time we had spent in purgatory. When we came back a lot of the groups loot was missing along with some personal loot. This really put a nail in the coffin for TheNutMan (who was the leader of the group) so he decided to put a stop to it, and this was his brilliant plan; kick all members of the group, salvage the entire base and whoever had hidden or stolen items would not be let back in. This plan being blatantly flawed, caused lots of controversy and was the thing that ultimately killed the group. The leader of the revolution against TheNutMan was Ed, who wanted to leave G.S.D and form his own group, and BareWithMe along with most of the members from G.S.D who started anew. A new group formed dawning the name R.O.C (Republic of Chernogorsk), who (reminiscent of most countries after civil war) were generally poor and had no base. For awhile this group of the server elites were nomads with plans to eventually make a base surrounding Chernogorsk (hence the name R.O.C). I made a base just outside the city that was on the tracks meant to serve as a base for the train I had an obsession over and other vehicles. For awhile this was the base of operations as we set up in the sewers. During this period we took on a few more members and started regaining power. Then more troubles struck as again stuff was vanishing, personally Im still unsure who was actually responsible, though at the time we concluded that it was an insider. I looked into the evidence more and all signs pointed to Sanchez being the naughty boi, and I came to a conclusion based on the information given to me by others in the group, and the fact that a sign left near the entrance was signed by a group named Delta, and guess what? Good ol' Sanchez had Delta in his name (btw it wasn't actually him). Nakaya (the leader at the time) became tyrannic and an awful group leader because instead of letting the group vote, he'd make decisions on his own instead of letting the group have a say. The group almost fell apart and this time I made us a safety net to fall back into, The Sewer Rats. Lucky Nakaya was smart and didn't let history repeat itself and gave up the group to FriendlyShark. A fairly recent wipe had happened and we didn't have a base so plans were in the works to find a good area to build. It was decided that we were going to build underwater, but this time with a new plan to prevent insiders. The plan was to have everyone build near the sunken cargo ship but instead of having one big base, we each made our own bases outside of the group. This worked really well, but Justin had to go and mess it up by doing an event right above our bases. So to fully understand what happened, you'll need to know that there was this cool looking player made boat that was made from the fancy wooden assets that we named the ark, mainly we'd park our heils on it and it was pretty convenient. Apparently this ship caught Justin's eye and he did an event on it expanding it as well. This lead players strait above our base, and a few days after the event we were raided. It being completely Justin's fault we were exposed, we asked him to move our loot to a new location, and blow up our bases and refund us the scrap. The new location was where the old Annex base was, right on top of the huge flat hill in the top left corner. The change in base locations also meant a change in name so we became the shitly iconic named group, G.S.M (Green Star Militia) (stupid fucking name right?). This base was massive bigger even then the Annex, and at its largest I'd say it was a good 100 x 70 and in some parts seven floors tall. This base had two garages separated by seven tank doors, a heli pad that was two heli doors big, and a fairly large area for personal rooms. The base ended up being so big with 50+ vehicles and about ten trillion lockers, that it literally became a force of nature. There was a boarder aptly named "The Lag Boarder" that would immediately crash you and lock you in place if you left or entered the wrong way (it also would crash you if you died and didn't respawn within the lag boarder). Me being the genius I am, toyed with this force of nature and found out that if you went up north and out you wouldn't crash and it wasn't that hard to leave with ground vehicles. That changed when I added a wall and it became much more difficult to get vehicles out. This was a great time for the group, it was peaceful no insiding, it was nice. Then we were raided hard by people who tried to offline but failed because luckily one of our members was online. These people used cheesy strats and one of the main pvpers was supposed to be banned. This ended the base, they took everything and greifed where they could, this was the end of the golden age for G.S.M. In the video above, the base is being wiped because of its size and the time it would have taken to salvage. Dylan was a nice boy and gave us its scrap worth and we went on to build another base returning to the water. This base was hastily built and not the best, it had many issues and was not honeycombed. The base ended up living for a long time and was an ok with no insiding. Nothing really happened for awhile, but I ended up leaving the group because of some unfair strikes given to me (basically there were rules, if you broke the rules you got a strike, three strikes and you're out). Base was fine for a time after I left but eventually it was raided, either by an insider or someone that just wanted to raid it. After all that G.S.M has kinda faded away, its still there but it isn't like what it once was as most members don't play often anymore but vess went off and made a SZ named the community.
And thats it! The story is still ongoing but mostly told in my post. This is all true and did happen. This is a pretty basic telling of the group and may not be fully accurate, please feel free to add on, but please dont add on stuff like "wow I hate (GSM/Member)" as its not helpful or wanted. Also Lenny dont blow up in the comments about stupid shit.
Thanks for reading,
quick bit of history before gsd lol:
VTA merged with Nakayas group under Shelby (or Bvax)s leadership. before that the two groups had been allies. it was here that most members such as barewithme joined. the group then mutineed against shelby being a dumbass and was reformed into gsd/annex/whatever i wasnt here

(if yall have more would b cool lol)
from what i remembered Nutman was crying about us leaving and tried to get me fucked up by the hacker advoin. As well that was de crucial moment that showed the true colors of the group. So it basically went down like this,
We were sick of tired of Nutman's bullshit another member in our group luna was taking shit from people's personal lockers "as a joke". Nutman knew about this but instead of doing anything he was simping over luna , you see luna proclaimed to be a girl but in all reality the dude was a lady hearing about this Nutman being the cuck he is treated him more lenient then the others. Either way Nutman's rude behavior towards us and disrespect was another factor why we left. The idea was combination of most members of the group who were leaving. We were thinking smart since Nutman had "friended" the hacker and most likely was going to use him on us. We decided to take everything that was ours and leave , Nikolai since he did most of the base building took all the honey comb and some sections of the base. I though decided to take the blame for all of this so i mislead Nutman on a blackhawk towards where i was completely south of the base while everyone went east. I after parted with the lads and i formed my group the Mud-Dogs were we only did work for hire. After that was the decline of me actually playing and being part of the series.
I am impressed with how much information you have collected but most of the crucial moments is biased towards the admins and yourself. Either way good recollection and its great to see more stuff like this.
