All four current members of Chernarus United Traders: Sebastian Michaelis, Ben Chapman, Mike Reynolds and Alexei Vadim met in Eden and became good friends. Then, once Eden got destroyed, they regrouped and wanted to survive together, however they wanted to build a safe-haven in a community of people and to make a trade camp so people can feel safe while trading with other people out in the infested, hell ridden land. So they did, they built up a little place. Inside an abandoned castle. They decided on this location because of the general area and how fortified the castle was even after its abandonment. Allen ripped up his old orange raincoat and made some armbands for his friends so that they could identify each other at a distance. They needed to make up a name for themselves, so they went for an easy name that everyone remember; Chernarus United Traders.
The area claimed by the 'Chernarus United Traders' started small, with only a few people recognising the place as a trading area, or they just wanted to scavenge around the castle, but the people that came must have told others of the location as it soon picked up the pace and more and more people began to come and interact with the traders and they soon became quite popular with the survivors in the center of Chernaurus. Many traveled to the location to trade amongst themselves. It was actually, believe it or not, quite peaceful at that time.
As always when news traveled fast in Chernarus the word of a location filled with traders was heard by those known for banditry and cannibalistic acts. They were attacked constantly by a bandit groups and thus deciding to move away from the castle, they went to the coast as that is a good location for survivors to meet up and trade. They stumbled upon a rusty cargo ship, it had many areas to store their goods safely and would be far easier to defend; this would not be their new home and centre for trading.
People normally traded cans of food for other items, but then they started receiving that ‘one of a kind’ rare item’ usually land mines, bear traps and other such items. One of them, apparently saw an SVD with a few mags being traded for an AKM with drum mag. The man with the SVD quickly traded it but soon regretted it as the SVD’s value is so much compared to the common AKM maybe he was a bad sniper? (Anyway who knows I bet he's a bit pissed off though.)
