The Pilgrims are an unusual grouping of simple travelers and inveterate explorers of the Zone. It was founded by some stalker who is fond of medieval themes, for which this group received such an unusual, but appropriate name. Members of this group help all residents of the Zone a lot, as they are searching for new trails, exploring previously unexplored places, and also looking for new ways to and from the Zone. Many members of this group also earn extra money with the services of guides, as they can spend their main activities in many interesting places. Due to this and their universal help, the pilgrims are not touched by almost any other groups, giving them the opportunity to calmly explore the impassable places of the Zone. There are also a lot of newcomer stalkers in this group who have recently come to the Zone and are eager for new sensations, discoveries, as well as looking for opportunities to become famous and also earn good money. The base of this group is located somewhere east of the Cordon, and they have some experienced stalker in charge, who has seen a lot. In addition, the pilgrims have several transshipment points closer to the center of the Zone, where some members of this group also constantly stay. The pilgrims also have their own equipment, which is a highly modernized stalker overalls and jackets, as well as special badges and even documents to identify them as pilgrims.
