My freinds Aaron and Derek and I need some help with a zombie plan.

We have a Lowes in Logan,Utah locked down. We have guns and food. We have two female NPC (one bitten but hasn't changed yet, the other is her twin sister and not bitten), Two male NPC a mechanic and marine.

Zombies are fairly intelligent, and there are some specialized mutant zombies.

So what do you think?

Bring up off-hand during the game that one of the characters has always wanted to go on vacation to Hawaii. Plus, "rumor has it", Hawaii has a large stronghold of survivors, being composed of many, many islands it's naturally harder for large numbers of zombies to swarm.

True or not, your mission is now to find the best tropical shirts available in the supermarket next door and go on vacation, zombies or not.

me and my friend did a dnd group of 3.5 irl at our college the cool thing is that the place comes with a map so we took that and made up some bs reason how some zombies got out somehow. Then it became awesome and we used ourselves as the characters.

>> No.10763503

Go get one of those anti-dog attack suits (I think they're called bearsuits), attract a bunch of zombies into a warehouse, preferably one with lots and lots of power tools/dangerous machinery with working generators. Whenever there's a player dispute or an argument over who gets what (I want the sword we found in Chinatown, bitch), the characters each get dumped into the zombie warehouse, and it becomes a competition of who can kill more zombies in a five-minute period. The referee can watch either from the security room (usually just a locked office in the back), or he can stand up in the rafters with backstock pallets.

Whoever kills more zombies wins.

>> No.10763627

interesting idea, I haven't heard of anything like that. Where would we find a bearsuit

>> No.10763666

It's GURPS, so you can get creative with mechanics.

Instead of earning ambiguous points to spend after each session or whatever, every character can have a flashback once per game. They can also forego flashbacks in order to "save them up" to do bigger flashbacks later on.

Mechanically, each flashback should probably be worth about 5 points, but this will vary somewhat. If that's not enough, 10 points is probably fine too, though that will make character progression much faster. This may be a good thing in a game where lifespans are short and supplies are shorter, though.

So lets say one of our survivors gets shot. All of a sudden, one of the players declares a flashback. "Yeah, I used to be a nurse, so right now I'm remembering this kid I treated when he got rolled into the ICU after a gang shootout. Good thing I had that experience!" Then he gains 5 points in First Aid. Or whatever. Never even had to declare he was a nurse in the game previously.

Or let's say someone has a hotshot lawyer character. Zombies are bearing down on him everywhere. The only thing close to him is a skateboard. Lucky for our lawyer, he makes motherfucking youtube skate videos in his spare time (although he was probably one of the guys who wipes out a lot)! All of a sudden he has 5 points in a skateboarding skill, and he tears shit up as he gets out of there.

Hawaii is isolated, but not self-sufficient. Zombie infection is unlikely to make it here unless it's Romero's "EVERY DEAD PERSON REANIMATES" apocalypse. However, there will be mass starvation on Oahu and Maui (the two most populated islands) which will rapidly spread to the outer islands as sea and air transport becomes an adventure. Eventually there might be enough agriculture to support the survivors, but that is years in the future. Many people will hide up in the mountains because zombies are poor climbers. Others will take to the sea and possibly form a flotilla. Pearl Harbor has numerous nuclear submarines and naval ships (no carriers stationed here). The US Navy will undoubtedly form the core of the flotilla. Ford Island in the middle of Pearl Harbor will be the largest anti-zombie stronghold. If the 25th Infantry Division's Stryker Brigade isn't in Iraq, then a lot of zombies will be run over by their 300 Strykers and supporting uparmored HUMVEES. It is a 5-10 minute drive from the 25th Infantry Division's main motor pool at Schofield Barracks to Ford Island via Kamehameha Highway, longer if there is traffic or combat.

On the other side of Oahu is Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The Marines will hole up forming a strongpoint at the Kaneohe Bay peninsula that MCBH occupies. Between K-Bay and the Mountain Tunnels will be the zombie kill zone. In order to maintain clear fields of fire, all structures within 100-300 yards of the highway linking the fortified mountains and K-Bay will be leveled. The highway is likely to be walled off by earthwork embankments topped with razorwire fences and concrete barricades. Spiked ditches along the embankments will add to the highway's security.

Coincidentally, the current US President grew up in Hawaii and attended Iolani High School here...
