Most prisons ARE layers of chain link fence.

Most, but not all. We've got quite the castle up the road.

Yeah- regular or fast zombies would be bad. Trying to clear an entire prison, and make sure you got EVERY last hunter? That's the stuff nightmares are made of. Let alone rounding a corner in a laundry room and finding a spitter about arm's length from you, or something.

That's what the cannon fodde...er....infected are for!

I just really dislike the flying city. I know there's suposed to be a suspension of disbelief to video games, obviously, but an entire city being flown around on hot air balloons just crosses my own personal "too unrealistic" line.

That said, I'll probably still get it. Tongue

I mostly hope they do something a bit more interesting with the plasmids; either make them a bigger focus in combat or revamp the system.

There's no reason to go with Hot-air either. Gas balloons were used as early as 1783, by 1912 anyone crazy enough to create something like Columbia could have developed a massive hydrogen lifting platform. Poor choice on the designer's part.

Maybe it's just me but I would NOT feel safe in Zombie infested territory even with two chain link fences. I'm suprised they didn't clear a Prison or something.

HAH! She got him back!  Grin

In the FUTURE (without flying cars; you can either have flying cars or zombies in the FUTURE, never both) Katie does seem to be the one who trusts Charlie the most. Though having saved her life may have helped.


Also: the meds Katie received are probably anxiolytics. One side effect of them is disinhibition. In about 1% of case, what the brain is inhibiting is MADNESS (yes, the brain has defenses against itself) and the anxiolytics have an effect exactly opposed to what they're supposed to do. This is called a paradoxical reaction. If it's Katie's case, and she finds out by taking one in a panic situation, she could very well be the one who eats Milo!!!

THAT is intresting. Katie actually gets Milo killed and Charlie gets the blame as he's the 'zombie'.

It's like, what I am trying to portray, is he is trying to force himself into the group as in an 'accept me as your friend!' Thing. And he thinks by asking the crew what they did in the wastelands is going to help, but it's like asking a guy who was in Nam what he did in the war, it's just... you really shouldn't do that, because most really don't want to talk about it cause it just sucked real hard, and there a lot of bad memories and stuff. :/

Think it depends on the Vet but in geneal yeah, most will talk about things they LEARNED; or saw. They will not talk about combat situations they were in if they killed people, but this varies depending on their attitude toward it. One guy in my Japanese class met a South African mercenary who was pretty candid about what he did. War was his trade, he didn't seem to give a shit about killing people.

One guy I knew was in Cambodia, nobody, I mean NOBODY who knew him even seemed to know this, probably because it was A) illegal and B) he was sworn to secrecy about 99% of it. I was kind of suprised he mentioned it, other then him talking about how it sucked when he got back from the Tet Offensive right in time for the race riots of the late sixties.He wouldn't talk about that kind of thing but he would talk about gear till the sun rose and set and anything else mechanical, had a LOT of experiance with all the warsaw pact stuff too. (He was a machinist by trade.) His words to me were. "You've got enough guns, get yourself some damn ammo, put it on stripper clips and pack it on bandoliers, and get yourself a sling, saw the barrel down as short as you can get away with." 

Died of cancer a year or so ago, and going through his effects they found his Uzi had been rather illegally converted to full-auto. He was ready for the Zombies.  Outlaw with an upgrade

I'll never forget the little old man with half an ear who was a demonlitions expert par excellence. He got his first job at 12 when he snuffed out an oil fire with dynamite, used almost every explosive known to man including weird shit like Gun cotton. In Korea he was flown somewhere, he never knew where, planted charges and was flown back. He could have been Sammie's grandfather, easily.  Evil

Boldt Castle. Island AND castle. All I could ask for after that is a Zepplin to raid inland for supplies.

treatment he is accustomed to?  Would that be being strapped down to a lab table or putting on dog and pony shows, or running around with packs of undead hunting, torturing, and eating the living?

Sorry Charlie, no sympathy yet.

Well megan and the Lab rat set are a bit more how shall we say....refined then the THZ crew, which consists of a highly reactive tough chick tomboy, a psychopathic medic/bomber, an spacy slightly creepy navigator/scout/cartographer....Maureen and Milo, who are the only two who seem...less quirky then the rest of the grading curve. They're all quite a bit quirker then Zombie C-3PO is used to dealing with. I don't think Charlie would fair much better in an any EMS/Military setting because folks who deal with death on a regular basis tend to be weird by the standards of so-called 'normal' people. He's definately more the College professor type.

Course the snotty British attitude doesn't help matters much.

How would you react if you woke up with charlie's face at point blank from you?

Or more to the point: how would you react if you survived in a Zombie filled hell-hole for YEARS then had a guy who looks exactly LIKE one wakes you up crouching over you.

Charlie fucked up; unfortunately he kind of wants to forget what he is; Jenny can't, ever not deep down in that part of her that kept her alive when she was being hunted by them on a daily basis.

does Comic!Jenny have some sort of neurosci tied to that remote? or is it just a metaphor for how she needs to be in control?

My thought is PSTD. She was in the wastes a long time. The TV is on to create back ground noise so she doesn't freak at every little sound. Then we've got Charlie, a techical zombie leaning over her reaching for her while she's half concious. Quick, instant reflexive violent reaction; Charlie gets popped one. You see that kind of thing in a lot of vets; it's what kept them alive in combat zones and difficult if not impossible to shut off once you're 'rewired' that way.

...now THAT is a guy who is handy with some tools. When the apocalypse comes about, you want to go find him.

It should be easy, he'll be the guy with electricity, and eleven million channels on TV.

all of which either have static or "OH GOD IT'S EATING MY FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (well, you can watch THAT I suppose.....)

I like that massive wide-screen LCD tv they got there.

Well, given the quarantine bullshit I don't think even Sam's tits are going to help with that one. Just one of the many ways the Infected get the shaft on Arc, TVs from when Solid State was a sales pitch....  Roll Eyes

Jenny totally fooled me. I thought this was after their last mission until Milo showed up.

I actually cringed when I wrote this, but it's in her character so I had to. When people snap at her, she'll snap back twice as hard. She doesn't seem to have the 'you shouldn't say that/do that' filter installed.

Funny how your characters wind up running you isn't it? I've lost track of situations I've been doing creative writing and said 'Shit, I have to write this, It's logical that X would do Y to Z." Even if that outcome is horrible or disturbing.Grin

Note to aspiring story/comic creators. Don't put yourself in your comic. Bad idea. Bad bad idea.

Too late. Spent 10 years undoing that mistake  Tongue It's more common then you think though. Stephen King did it, So did Robert Heinlien, Ian Flemming and several other famous writers. Guess it's 'write what you know' to the nth degree. Only positive thing I can say with it is working with character 'templates' based on folks you know is it gives you a feel for learning how to create characters. It works best IMO when you take traits from several individuals and make a Frankenstein out of them.

And if it's any consolation I still think Comic Jenny Gets owned hard by Comic Sam in the bitch department. Tormenting A half-life with an apple isn't half as evil as stealing a kid's sucker.  >Cheesy

They developed a more efficient power source: Namely 500+ zombies shambling on treadmills. Their walking turns dynamos which in turn works generators and creates electric power. The zombies are motivated into fruitlessly chasing a human in an adjacent room behind a big lexan glass window who is paid to sit there and read a magazine all day. (widely known as the sweetest job on the Arc.) Zombie power is green, biodegradable and zombies who fall apart from the stress are easily replaced by infected who croak of natural causes.  Grin
