Doctor Who: Waters of Mars -- A fairly standard base under siege story, it provides useful inspiration if you want to use zombieism as an intelligent (alien) disease with goals rather than uncontrolled wildfire. Also lets you connect zombies to global warming and related environmental mismanagement.

If you're going to loot a place that's occupied, you take care of the occupants first. So you take out Earth's population then you can take all the water you want from the solar system in peace.

As some of you have heard, the 1st episode fo Star Wars Rebels has escaped into the wild. The episode is basically a demonstration of everything wrong with the idea of making a Jedi and his padawan the main characters of the show.

    Note that I'm a Sydneysider who's only spent a day in enemy territory Melbourne. Basically because of what we refer to as the 'Australia Tax', whereby prices are often inflated well above the additional cost of import, virtually everything will be relatively more expensive, but your having  access to savings in pounds which are usually 2:1 to the aussie dollar most times means you're comparatively rich. Also, all your media runs on exactly the same formats -- yay PAL and region 2/4 interchangability.

    It seems to be the product of a social media collective that came together to attempt to crowd source a post-zompocalypse mockumentary, a project that was finally put out to pasture earlier this year. At least they managed to get this book produced.

    A gradual mutation of a virulent strain of super flu gives rise to millions of the undead, who quickly overwhelm treatment facilities and swarm cities around the world, leaving survivors on their own against a legion of the infected. This story is told through the scraps of paper, scrawled signs, and cryptic markers left by survivors as they struggle to stay alive and find those they've lost in a world overrun by zombies. Through these found notes and messages letters to loved ones, journal fragments, confessions, and warnings readers can uncover the story of what went wrong, and come to know the individual voices of those affected by the zombie crisis.

    Quote from: Mark Frauenfelder
    Dead Inside: Do Not Enter
    by Lost Zombies
    2011, 160 pages, 8 x 10 x 0.5 inches

    Some of my favorite things about zombie movies are the details of the changed world. The dead grass, broken windows, toppled telephone poles, abandoned cars with missing wheels and trunks left open, boarded-up buildings, spent ammo shells, and other signs of struggle and desperation serve to create a fascinatingly creepy environment.

    And that’s why I like Dead Inside: Do Not Enter so much. The book consists entirely of letters, hand-written warnings, and pages torn from journal entries that were written during the zombie pandemic. The notes are on matchbooks, napkins, photographs, advertisements, shopping lists, road maps, scraps of cardboard, and gum wrappers. Some of the notes are written with pen and pencil, others are written with lipstick, burnt wood, crayons, and blood.

    The messages of the notes themselves tell the tale of the rise of the zombie pandemic, from tentative, joking questions about a “really bad flu,” escalating to confused panic, and later to grim acceptance of the new reality that the survivors now must live in.

    In the introduction to Dead Inside, we learn that these notes had been found in a Dora the Explorer backpack. The first note presented in the book was written by the man who killed the owner of the backpack, a girl who was about 10 years old and had been bitten by a zombie (but had not yet turned into one). The man wrote “I opened her backpack and found all these notes and letters. This stuff is poisonous. No one in their right mind should read it. Reading this is like looking into the sun.”

    The drawback for being a Strength-based caster of being mute feels far more appropriate to charisma-based casters.

    I'd change the drawback to that currently imposed on the runecaster, and replace that one with the fatigued or sickened conditions.
