So, /zom/, do you guys have any plans on rebuilding civilization after the zompocalypse?

I always fantasize about having a little community with it's own little militia and having farmers feed our population by farming on the outskirts of town.

And what would be the best way to clear out a, let's say, 25,000 population town of zombies to make it safe? Fortifying it? Protecting from siege and raiders?

Also, kind of straying away from zombies here but, do you think we would ever get back to the point of space travel? I would like to think zombies would just bring upon a second dark age, and we would eventually get back on track with technological development.

>>The best bet is to just fit in a group and slowly take it over from the inside. Why do the hard work when you can take it from somebody else

I doubt you could take over anything that wasn't from McDonalds.

Jokes aside, how exactly would you "take over a group from the inside". I'd love to hear how someone with no talent whos main experience in real life comes down to "sits in front of a computer yelling at mom to bring me cheezy snacks" would go from the position of an outsider, to the head of whatever group they attempted to become a part of.

Thank you for the laugh haven't heard graboids in awhile. Ah the memories.

As for the zombie apocalypse I would call/text all friends and family on day one while phones still work. Tell them where I'm going and what to bring with them. I would go to a local food or furniture warehouses or BJ's "other options acceptable" set up a group to come back to there, then go to the nearest corp dept store that sells guns, knives, bows, ammo, and survival gear. Sorry to take it from the walking dead but newcomers get the three questions. Use friends and family to dominate group and run things. Run a semi democratic community, have council but have it rigged.Build, and scavenge outward from base, collect and burn the redead. I'm a fit guy so I'd run raid parties.

I think there is only 2 possibility for the social organization:

We can have a charismatic and strong leader succeeding at unifying the people and a more-or-less dictatorship will be established.
Given the situation, he will have no other choice than establish a maoist-like policy and use force against all opponents.
While this assure us than we can farm safely from both zombies and looters, it will also result in atrocious living conditions. We will have to hide the food we make and we will be tortured by the police to give it. We basically have the choice of a hard working life, keeping a low profile all the time, and being killed. All rebellions will be solved in a bath of blood and there is a small chance for stalinist purges or Kmer rouge slaughtering.
After decades of this bullshit, situation should be stabilized and we could hope for a better future.

The second possibility is a total decay of civilization and a come back to dark ages. If there is no more guns, small groups of well armed and trained friends will loot farms, do whatever they want where they are and will finish to realize that they can just say they are the lords of a given place. Massive local conflicts and pillages will follow and we will slowly see a medieval hierarchy appear.
After century of farmers being slaughtered by wars, there is a chance that the productivity will be high enough so the strong people will rely on modern institutions rather than pure force to impose themselves in positions of power. Then, society can start again.

In any case, we are fucked.

is 1.1 million points good?

it looks like something just for fun, the important question is whether or not the shotgun is real since that's probably more likely to be used in a real firefight than a long range rifle in urban home invasion if that's what you're talking about


I don't own any guns, but tell me what I've got and what I've missed - also what ammunition they use ;D

back row, right hand side going left

M2, lee enfield No4 MK1? (the only one I know specifically exists), ???? then about center it's a mauser kar? then a really weird one, then an older lee enfield, another mauser kar of some sort

looks like some sort of russian direct knockoff of an MP44 in the back second from left

To kill zombies without reloading ever

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:14 No. 5060 ID: 27464e


a lot on nogun friends.

This is a failed strategy, and you can't survive with "lota guns".

Why? Because the army already tried. You really think that 10 undisciplined manchild can success where the fucking army failed?

You shoot one time and all zombies at 5km walk toward you.

You are 10 in a house, there is no more electricity and water and you just have 3L of water left.

If you plan to get thought zombies by force, you are fucked. What you need is several years of food, a water source and purification filters/pills a well-hidden place and some luck.

Yes, whatever you are doing, you need luck to survive.

Sup /zom/, simple question: what are some good zombie books to read?

I lik the Day by Day Armageddon series for what it was, even if the third book was a little phoned in. There's also the Plague of the Dead, I've only read the first book, but I liked it a little more.

So, has anyone got any good zombie books to add? Oh, besides WWZ.

Shambler 14/02/15(Sat)18:43 No. 5016 ID: 805c53

As far as zombie literature you often need to take a few steps back in order to move forward. A few I have found enjoyable are as follows.
Book of the Dead by John Skipp Craig Spector (collection of short stories)
Wet Work by Philip Nutman (black ops team abroad when outbreak happens)
The Dead by Mark E. Rodgers (standard fare with a demonic twist)
Dead City by Joe Mckinney (1st of the Dead World Series a virus breaks out in Texas after hurricanes)
Down the Road by Bowie V. Ibarra (1st of series set in Texas again survival drama guy travelling the state trying to get home.)
Dying to Live by Kim Paffenroth (1st of series survival drama where the dead are the least of your troubles)
Autum by David Moody (1st of series slow starter heavy on drama less on gore picks up halfway in)
The Rising by Brian Keene (1st of series another demon possession series with a twist beware of animals)
Day By Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne (1st of kinda series, stick with the first one)
Zombies and Shit by Carlton Mellick III (OK this is just a fun read, survival show meets Return of the Living Dead)
The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga (1st of series essentially the governors back story a bit lacklustre unless you are a fan of the series)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a bit repetative but very good as it's written in the exact style of the original.

Anybody else signing up for it this year?

I missed my chance last year but from what my mates have told me it was a pretty awesome evening consisting of a few set-pieces and and a bit of walking/zombie-fleeing between them. Followed by an awesome zombie-themed after party.

a long time ago 7-10 years or myabe moar there were a certain story bout a notebook or RP or
not really sure, one anon find this notebook and write something on it and left it for the next anon write something else, obviously it was in a zombie apocalypse era, and anons wrote their exp bad, good, cheap, noble, etc like some sort of diary who passed along survivors of the zom apocalypse, now my question is simple, is there any place where this story its saved,or thread its alive somewhere? or at least some anon knows bout what im typing?

I recall participating in a thread somewhat like you described back on 711chan but not here. No idea if anyone backed it up though.

Close I can recall here was a history thread that listed past events in sequential order until it caught up with the present then proceeded into the speculated (and turned wacky) future.

has anyone played this zombie game?

Shambler 14/01/26(Sun)23:35 No. 5002 ID: b6494d

It's am urban-dead knockoff with added vampires (that the creators have a fetish/bias for playing as) and a 'donate'-to-win mechanic.

The only other difference to note is a bigger emphasis on combat (that the developers claim is "streamlined") which means more damage/less health and a 2:1 ration of weapons vs every other usable item. The weapons are also grossly unbalanced which makes 90% of them redundant as you work your way up the tiers towards the cookie cutters.

Stick to UrbanDead unless you have a vampire fetish (or go and read twilight).

Roll for survival, /zom/. The dead have risen and are eating the living. The last two digit decides what happens to you.

0-3 "Fuck this." You an heroed once you heard the news
4-6 You ignored the warnings. Your home was invaded. You're hiding in a room and it's only a matter of time until they find you.
>If you roll a 4, 5, or 6 then reroll. 0-4=You try to escape but you tripped over something and alerted the zombies. You're zombie bait.
>5-9= You successfully escaped the zombies in your house and are on your way to a rural piece of property.

7-8 You grabbed a good amount of supplies and made it out with little/no trouble. You're in good shape.

9 God help the poor zombie who finds you and your group of the perfect survivalists. You're well stocked with food and ammunition. You have a good sized team of people who know exactly what to do and how to survive this apocalypse. You've got plenty of stuff to keep you entertained for years to come. Your house is well guarded and you have the resources to maintain it. You'll make it out of this alive.

There may or may not have been a thread about this, but I am asking anyway.

How accurate (this might be) is "The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From The Living Dead" if it might be used in an apocalyptic setting, including those it was ment for.

I own this book, I re-read it sometimes, and I can see some of this accurately working, but I want your opinions as well.

I've also read "World War Z" (Written by the same author) and it also seems plausible.

Yea spear/short sword combo would work well I think. And a .22 is...meh IDK. I hold out hope for it, I really do think it could be effective at really close ranges, but who really knows.

FPOB!!R1ZmxlMzD4 13/08/05(Mon)13:12 No. 4754 ID: f322df

I mean, there's instances where the angle of the bullet entry led to a headshot being non-lethal, but with zombies, their bones would be weaker from lack of calcium which would be evident in anywhere from a week to a month after the initial outbreak (I'm guessing).

I figure .22lr would be a good siege defense weapon, since you could have thousands and thousands of rounds easily stockpiled at a cheap price. But my main reason for asking is that we all know firearms are damn loud, but a suppressed .22 is on the noise level of a air gun from what I've seen. Would be easy to scrounge for supplies and take out small groups of zombies in your way without attracting a horde. .22 rifles tend to be lighter and more compact (Ruger 10/22 takedown) as well and you could carry hundreds of rounds on your person.

Since you could carry so much ammo, you could loose off several rounds into a head without worrying about running out of ammo (.22lr can be found just about anywhere as well).

Max Brooks wrote that book for the average civilian. That means a person who never did outdoors shit, someone who doesnt know shit about firearms and is new to a world where u have to fend for their selves. The history part is BS of course, its for entertainment purposes. Think about, the weapons most people want to use is military weaponry. I would use a M-14. Its 7.62x51 mm or .308 Winchester, ammo is easy to come by and u can put a bayonet on it. Use sum common sense people.
