Not much to show on the hobby front. So now a warning.....This post will contain some of my mad ramblings!!!! MWAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!
So zombies....How about them? What is it with the "original" zombie craving brains? Everytime somebody mimics a zombie they will stretch their arms out and in a deep voice say BRAAAAIIINNNSS!!! ANd yet the movies nowadays you see them crave the flesh of the living, not just the brain part. That....Has got me thinking more than once.
I made a little roleplay oneshot. People should just show up, I had their characters ready and the story. They thought they were fighting another group in the city. Then the zombies came.... I had mine going for warmth. As they were dead, the blood had stopped pumping around their body, thus they cooled down. Cold dead people. They wanted to return to the living on a basic level. So first of they needed to get warm again. And they needed blood in their veins. Nom nom humans! Took some time before my group of gamers realised this fact. Then they made molotov cocktails! Must admit I did not see that one coming, but I allowed it to work as it was damn funny too!
And seeing that most zombies heart does not function, thus no circulation of blood, how do thir brain function? There has to be some sparks going on even for the primitive functions as walking. And why the hel do they use their lungs? Moaning or screaming. Why? They need not air anymore!!!
In some movies they totally ignore animals. In others they go for whatever is moving. And why do they not attack eachother?! How do they tell the difference? Bodyheat? Need to be close for that.
Okay....I know that this is fiction, each storyteller has his angle on what zombies are. From the ones we met in Romero`s early works. The shamblers, the scary ones that just keep on coming and seemingly without number! To fast zeds, zombies that can run! HOLY SHIT! Not to mention the smart zombies when they start using weapons, can open doors....
How to survive them? So many scenarioes but again that really depends on which type of zombie we are dealing with. "I will get on a boat and hide on an island, zombies can not swim!" Okay...Why not? They can walk, when he was alive, he could swim then what should stop him as a zombie? They do not need to breathe so they can walk on the bottom of the ocean untill they reach shallow water. Your island! Or they start to bloat with gasses as they lie in the water, thus they resurface and the currents and winds will send these groups of bloated zombies towards.....Yes...Your island! HAVE FUN! Oh....And if a bird have been picking on a zombie it may have the virus, fly out to your island and shit in your coffee!
Well that took an unpleasant turn..... I did warn you...Sometimes my madness bubbles over. I reaaaally am trying to control myself as I write this. We each have different takes on this. And we should! We are individuals that are able to think, not mindless zombies....YET!
