A note about Zombies
A few tidbits about Zombies you need to know before you run out and get yourself killed. First off don’t fret, Zombies will not turn you into another Zombie by biting you. Zombies feed off of life energy (P.P.E) and unfortunately for you your PPE doubles at the moment of death. Thats why Zombies kill you, to get as much energy as possible. However they don’t get any unless you die. Sounds all fine and dandy, but just in case you want to go run around a crowd of Zombies thinking you’re fine as long as you don’t die, well you’re wrong.
Zombie bites will not turn you into a Zombie, but they can and often times make you very sick. Infection and disease is incredibly common with bites. They need to be treated, they need medical attention or else they can get inflamed, or at the worst Zombie Rot.
A few things you need to know is that Zombies have, on average, double the strength of a human. If as a human he had a strength of 20, then in Zombie life he will have a strength of 40!
All of these things are bad, but the very worst thing about Zombies is their moan. If a Zombie spots a human there is usually 20-30 seconds before it lets out an ear shattering moan. Now the moan is unnerving, but the worst part is it’s a call out to all the other Zombies. One Zombie can summon all the other Zombies for 3-5 blocks, if 10 start to moan that that’s 10 blocks, 20 Zomb…..well you get the idea. But just imagine how many Zombies are within 10 blocks of a major city. So in just a few minutes you could be surrounding by 2000 Zombies all called by the first one. They may be dumb and slow, but multiply that stupidity and speed by 2000 and you’re outnumbered and up shit creek without a paddle.
One last note. Location rules still apply. Want to kill a Zombie? Destroy the brain. But wait! It’s not that easy. If you cut ones head off it dies, right? Not quite. If the head is reattached, or sometimes just left close to the body, it can grow back and be walking in 24 hours. So, destroy the brain, remove the head, burn it, chop it up, do whatever you need to do, but make sure it’s permanent or you’ll just have the same meat bag following you tomorrow.
Oh and if all you have is a .22 pistol, might as well turn it around and use it as a club. You need something to get past the skull and the .22 just isn’t the tool. Crowbars, machetes, .45’s, big bore weapons things that pack a punch, that’s what you need.
