Does it class as a zombie game per-say?

I would say yes, but more along the lines of Alone in the Dark. The zombies cannot be killed, most of them exhibit extreme psychic/paranormal qualities, and the zombies don't follow normal rules for zombies (EG the zombie that has been shooting a pistol at a wall for close to a year)

Bassui wrote the following letter to one of his disciples who was about to die:

The essence of your mind is not born, so it will never die. It is not an existence, which is perishable. It is not an emptiness, which is a mere void. It has neither color nor form. It enjoys no pleasures and suffers no pains.

"I know you are very ill. Like a good Zen student, you are facing that sickness squarely. You may not know exactly who is suffering, but question yourself: What is the essence of this mind? Think only of this. You will need no more. Covet nothing. Your end which is endless is as a snowflake dissolving in the pure air. Your end, is the beginning, of zombie-hood.

I need help with my plan. I would stock up on food and all those goodies, get my water from the English rain, ect. I would use cinder blocks and cement to block the stairs but my problem is electricity. I think the best plan is solar panels, wind turbines and a stationary bicycle connected to a motor, but how do I get electricity to come out of a battery (the big ones, not AAs or any of that) and into mains plug that would go in my xbox.

>As highlighted by Residential Solar 101, under cloudy and rainy weather conditions, your solar panels drop 40% – 90% depending on how dark and heavy the rain and clouds are.

Rain shouldn't hurt solar panels if that's what your asking.

Shambler 14/06/08(Sun)01:10 No. 5128 ID: 12c1a6

I'd say cover all your bases with a mix of energy producing appliances like you originally intended. The know-how to repair a wind turbine is far more accessible and possible with tools you have. Once a solar panel goes bust there's not much more it can do than look pretty and I've heard they have to be recycled after 10-15 years because they lose their efficacy and it's expensive to do because it contains environmentally damaging material.
The battery setup it turns out is not just a pile of car batteries, it's a damned huge thing like they use on forklifts connected to more of itself with regulators etc for a constant supply of electricity to your home.

Also I'd say having light and warmth is a good priority to have because just being able to survive would SUUUUCK you have to have enough diversion to want to live.

Hi /zom/
I'm doing a webcomic about a zombie apocalypse in Australia. If you're interested in zombies maybe you'd enjoy it.

http://therestlessdead.thecomicseries.com/comics/first/

If you know of any other zombie webcomics that I might like to check out maybe you could comment with them.

Thanks for suggesting this comic. I think there's a bit too much text per page some of the time but I like her character design. The page with the first zombie in the diner is really cool. Her style definitely improves as the comic goes on too.

I didn't draw mine in paint by the way, The style develops quite a bit over the first 20-30 pages, since I've been doing it for a couple of years.

Fir enough if you think it's too simple but I didn't want to spend ages on every page because I'm updating it twice a week.

Compound bow or crossbow? Which weighs more? Which is louder? Which is more accurate?

Shambler 14/05/09(Fri)04:23 No. 5095 ID: c0365a

I love bows; during term-time, I shot every tuesday and saturday for two hours since 13 through to my graduation.

With the luxury of a homestead environment, I would choose the compound. The arrow would be heavier, carry more impact even with comparable penetration. And if things got ugly, I could reload and loose twice as fast and even have the luxury to breathe out.

But in SHTF situation,I would not choose a compound or a crossbow. I would use a takedown recurve (with iron sights) or longbow. I'd hate to think what mud and moisture would do to the moving parts over a the period of a year, a third of which would be raining.

And on the road, with all your kit and supplies, I'd hate to be carrying around a contraption that doesn't change shape, fragile high-performance, precision contraption. If I could, I'd avoid the ironsights till hunting sessions.


Arrows: I've not made my own arrows before, but I've been told then can shatter with the high-performance , high poundage bows of today. Carrying around anything more than 20 arrows for a week on top of your gear would start to annoy me. Archery is really a homesteader's tool.

>ammo will run out eventually
People reload their own ammo all the time. It's not uncommon at all.
>gunshots will attract every zombie in the country
A regular gunshot would for a couple miles at least, yes. That's why you get a suppressor. Yes I realize a suppressor is not a "silencer" that makes your gun dead silent like it does in the movies, but it does keep the sound from carrying as far. On top of that, a suppressed bullet shot past a tree at a distance, for example, would make it sound like it was coming from the tree, not from the shooter. That's the point of a suppressor.

tl;dr a suppressor will make it sound like it's coming from a different direction and won't carry as far.

I reload myself, but the day will come (if the zombies do take over or if Obama & Co. have their way) when there will be no more powder, bullets, or primers. That will be a ways down the road, but if society falls...which the idea of a Zombie Apocalypse kinda demands...the supply of ammo is going to be finite.

That said, as long as the ammo DOES hold out, I will be using a firearm. And I'm totally with you on the use of suppressors. I can't make one myself, but I know guys with the tools, the materials, the skills, and the plans. Those guys will never want for employment once all the ATF cocksuckers are walking corpses shambling around looking for brains to eat.

Growing up on an Iowan farm, I know how to both hunt and grow plants (this will come into play later).
A buddy and I were dicking around on the computers at school during our yearbook class, since we filled our quota of pages that day, and found this island in canada. Since we were talking about zombies, we bot knew that this was a perfect place to go to in case of zombie outbreak. We figured since the lake(?) is about 2 miles wide at it's least wide part, we'd be relatively safe. We decided on it for sure since it was a nature preserve, so it has plenty of meat producing animals on it, and it's in canada which has a rather low population density. We could either harvest the raw materials of the forests to build shelter, or drive 8 hours to the nearest city and scavenge for supplies there. When the time comes, we both go to save a select few of people that we trust with our lives, who are very few in number, but also provide necessary skills such as cooking, scouting, building and fighting/hunting. What do you guys think?

Plants natural grow here, but it don't seem good for an intensive plantation.

Husbandry should work, some sort of extensive agriculture if we find the good plants but in this case, we have to remove trees and that's a lot of work.

Give this man a cookie. Doesn't have any bridges, which is good. Bridges may seem like easy enough to defend, but really, I call bullshit on supply runs.

The happening will not be the same in every place of the world. People will react differently, have different culture etc. I tried to make a list of the country that will have the best chance to survive a zombie invasion.

This is the first time I try to make this list so there is a lot of things to fix in it. If you see some mistakes or things I forgot to mention, please add them.

1) Best Korea
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ guns and heavy arty everywhere
+ bitten people will be shot without hesitation
+ they don't trade with others nation
+ lot of mountain and forest
+ Great Leader

2) Switzerland
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ all citizen have a long rifle and know how to use it

During WWII, putting the royal family on a boat is a bad idea. If the London population try to eat royal brains, with the few survivors knowing there is a lot of food in the palace, it is a good idea.

They will probably stay, I think that with power come some sort of honor and they may prefer to die than to left the place. If they leave, the situation would be far more explicit for the survivors in the commonwealth. If I had to write a fiction, I would make them leave. In "reality" they will probably stay.

What is sure is, if they manage to survive, and they have good chances, they will be in a good position to unite people after the happening.

If we remove the bridge, Venice can be acceded only by sea. They built the city on the sea so it need a naval battle to access the city. With some modern weapons and few good ships, trained troops can protect the city from literally anything except a modern army.

Pity not to see Siberia on the list:
+No population = no zombies.
+No need for bunkers, nobody is coming for you 500 miles over tough terrain to steal three turnips.
+You can grow everything by yourself
-It's hard, and it's cold, but that's life, deal with it.
+-You might end up living alone, but isn't that what you WANT from a zombie apocalypse?

Already mentioned in Russia.
Siberia is in the best part to resist zombies, but take care another Horde isn't going to fuck you again.
There was more people living in Siberia than in Kazakhstan before Genghis Khan. Being alone and far from everything have its drawbacks.
