I hear that in AZ there are entire towns where everyone is over the age of 70.

I doubt many people will read this. I just felt like doing some creative writing. This is a transcript from the ARC processing department as they evaluate new arrivals.

ARC Processing Transcript

One of our scavenging teams contacted a group of five individuals in the Wasteland last week. After making arrangements with the scavenging team, the group arrived at a rendezvous yesterday for pickup. Each of the five will be interviewed separately, after which they are to be processed.

Applicant Name: Adam Horton
Age: 40
Origin: Sandusky, OH
Occupation: Cook (insists on being called a saucier)
Status: Uninfected

ARC Officer: We want you to understand that this is not an interrogation. We just want to hear your experiences.

Horton: Yeah, I get it.

ARC: Your group is relatively healthy compared to most people who arrive here. Did you prepare for the outbreak?

Horton: Not really. Like most everyone else in the US, I was convinced that the virus was a Third World problem like ebola. I saw the tearjerker human interest stories of decimated villages in Liberia or Bangladesh. The newspapers showed photos but always cut out the more gruesome ones so they'd avoid angry letters to the editor. I just shook my head and turned the page.

ARC: So did your community fortify itself when the outbreak started?

Horton: No. Sandusky pretty much emptied out when the outbreak came to Ohio. We evacuated to Cleveland because it was supposed to be safe.

ARC: Cleveland?

Horton: Yup. And whatever you heard, it was even worse. I was lucky to have a friend there who had a sailboat on the lake. We got out the day before the Air Force dropped fuel-air bombs over the camps.

ARC: And what happened after that?

Horton: We mostly just drifted from island to island, trying to scrounge or fish what we could.

ARC: That sounds like many other stories we get, and those people are usually in terrible shape. What do you think you did differently?

Horton: Police tape.

ARC: What?

Horton: Yellow police tape. Early on, the authorities treated zombie attacks like any violent crime. Witness statements, CSI, blood spatter analysis, the works. Not that it mattered because things went to shit before the first zombie was arraigned. To be fair, it looked like a lot of attacks were domestic situations or burglaries gone horribly wrong. Or maybe someone under the influence of a scary new drug. The cops would show up at a house thinking they were going to tase a wife beater. Instead they found themselves face to face with a zombie, when they didn't even know what a zombie was. They'd try to talk it down, then subdue it by non-lethal means. Pepper spray did jack shit. Tasers slowed them down a little. Eventually the cops wrestled it down and cuffed it, but not before it bit who knows how many of them. If you want to see one of the original zombies, find an abandoned police car and check the back seat. Chances are there's a cuffed zombie that's been stuck there since the first days. As the attacks became more frequent and we finally knew what we were dealing with, the cops stopped caring about a zombie's Miranda rights. Eventually they just shot it, bagged it, and carted it off. No investigation. When things started to get worse and everything broke down, the cops stopped responding to calls. Then the phones went dead and you know the rest.

ARC: So what's the point?

Horton: Oh yeah, the police tape. If we could find a taped building, we went in. Cops guarded crime scenes until the neighborhood evacuated to a "safe zone." The mass looting just didn't happen in policed areas. And since those folks evacuated on the understanding that emergency services would provide food and shelter, they left a lot of necessaries behind. Afterward scavengers mostly targeted the big box stores and shopping malls. Seriously, who tries to hole up in a shopping mall? A single apartment or house was beneath notice. So yeah, it's that magical sweet spot of decent, untapped loot. Aside from the chalk outlines and the old blood smears, it's like there was no outbreak. There's still toothpaste and soap by the sink. There's usually several days' worth of canned food in the pantries. And let me tell you, there's nothing like finding a place that still has clean sheets and charged batteries. Heh, and sometimes we find condoms in the sock drawer. There was this one time-

ARC: We don't need to know that.

Horton: Okay.

ARC: We've heard enough. We will now give you over to another officer who will work out the specifics.

ARC Note - Entry: Granted. Assignment and living quarters to be assigned later.

I live in Arizona, John McCain country. A zombie would be both an improvement and most likely better preserved.

So, which zombies have been elected in your area?

Given the lack of substantive legislation, they may have a plurality.

Only if being delicious, nutritious and habit forming count as defences.

OK, that's a new spin.  Do zombies have an anti-insect defense?

I was watching a NatGeo program on the insect world and was struck by a realization that we may be looking at a 3 to 4 week zombpocalypse at the longest.

The larva of the common house fly consume only decaying organic matter. As your average zombie is 100 percent decaying organic matter, they won't last long against them. In fairly short order there will be nothing left except piles of bones and city sized swarms of insects that know how good we taste.

Screw chainsaws, katanas and baseball bats, I am stocking up on flypaper, mosquito netting and Raid, it kills them dead.

To start with, I am in the zombpocalypse can't happen camp. This would sum up why: http://www.cracked.com/article_18683_7-scientific-reasons-zombie-outbreak-would-fail-quickly.html.

As far as the spirits part, I see it like this; all the stories you hear about spirits usually revolve around the reason or reasons the spirit has to hang out here. Without that emotional tie to our plane or a bioelectric field, I don't believe they have the power to manifest let alone have the substance to be studied.

Also, your Swedish friend has it wrong. That spike in the head thing was actually early attempts at neural/mechanical interfacing. They weren't trying to make better soldiers, they were attempting to make pilots who could operate vehicles on a more instinctive level. All they ended up making were brain damaged test subjects. The human brain has a very low tolerance to foreign objects inside the skull. Especially if they are harder than brain tissue and don't move with it.

Probably you guys have this kind of topic here by now but since I can't find it so I think it's okay to start a new discussion?
So recently I've read a bit about spiritual matter in real life. Basically they classify that there are 3 types of spirit, depends on the spirit's learning level:
1) The low-level spirit - These spirits have little knowledge and experience. Most of them haven't achieved higher learning and they mostly act for their worldly desire. These souls are often "fooled" by shamans and witch doctors. These shamans and witch doctors capture these low level spirits to work for their bidding.
2) The medium-level spirit - These spirits have achieved an amount of knowledge. Imagine they're like us human living on this earthy plain, they understand knowledge, but they're still partly affected by worldly desires like pride or greed. These spirits can still be "fooled" by shamans and witch doctors, though at lower rate.
3) The high-level spirit - These spirits have achieved extremely high knowledge and experience, they're the one closest to god and they're also the one secretly help the humankind in need.
So according to this, it seems zombies can be real in these two scenarios: 1) shamans and witch doctors create them, though I dunno how they can do that, or 2) low-level spirits possess a person body and take control.
(it doesn't sound like zombies we've seen in entertainment industry, though i sense some similar characteristics)

This also remind me when one of my friends (he's Swedish) and he told me that people have succeeded in creating zombies in real life for war, by sticking a spike (or something, sorry I don't clearly remember) on soldier's head. They are not really zombies on entertainment industry but they're like zombies since they can't feel pain and they will always follow orders... and that's true scary story.

Hi, Antonio. I've been here awhile now........ And I think that there are forum rules against discussing what I play with. Well, at least on this forum anyways.

But, I digress. Those of us left welcome you to the forum and Cthullu (pbhn) would like me to mention that there is always room on His team for anyone with a sincere desire to survive the upcoming apocalypse. Not that He's planning to start one or anything....

Seriously I don't want that kind of apocalypse happen in real life... but it's fine in gaming i guess Cheesy.
