NationStates: Z-Day10: The Tin Ear


Recommended Posts

I knew a zombie once. He was a good guy, a little on the quiet side, prone to chewing his own fingers. "Arg," I would say, because that's what I called him, Arg. "Arg, what is it about you and feasting on human flesh? Is it really all that? Have you tried burgers?"

But Arg would just stare at me with his one good eye and drool. Because he was a zombie. I learned a lot from Arg over the years, but mainly that you can't expect conversation out of a renanimated corpse. They really do just want to eat brains.

This year I'm hearing a lot of talk out of wurld Z-Day Preparedness Center that we have better cures than ever, and there might not even be a zombie apocalypse. Blah blah blah. I've heard it all before. I say, get ready for waves of the undead.

That's just a guess. I'm going on instinct here. But sometime around this, I reckon you may want to look out for shamblers.

Here we are again. The shambling hordes are slowly spreading over most of the wurld, and gradually starting to starve, while some safe enclaves are distributing a cure. We've seen this song and dance before. It usually takes longer though, odd.

Have you looked into the numbers we're seeing? Why, in some nations all of the undead dropped, well, dead-er, at once.

I'm sure it's fine. After all, this is an infection we're talking about. The dead don't rise from their graves or anything...

I'm sure the cure will behave just as consistently as it always has, too. It's not magic, it's science!

Update: I stand corrected. It appears many of the recently-dead have arisen and there has been a wurldwide setback in cure progress. I'm told that the nations most advanced in their research retained the most useful data, but the more advanced they were in their efforts the greater the setback. There are no signs, however, that future research will be negatively affected.

Watching the situation, there is a definite trend. If all continues to, well, continue, it won't be long before we once again see more than twice as many still corpses as shambling ones. The few survivors, meanwhile, seem to be holding steady. Only a massive effort of inter-regional cooperation could change things now.

Our zombie scientists are growing more sluggish and less erratic. I think we can forecast a definite end to this end-of-the-wurld scenario. See you on the other side!

This is an automatically issued notice that the 10th annual NationStates Zombie Apocalypse has come to an end. All biting, researching, exterminating, and tallying is finished. Graphs and statistics remain accessible, and the final tally board is available for your perusal.

There may be a more thoughtful and topical review of this event after someone here wakes up to comment on it.
