Zombie Cliche Lookout: Playing Nice is Nice and All, but Stealing is Cool Too
As you might recall, beating up the store owner and looting the place wasn’t exactly Plan A here. In point of fact, this is the very thing Murphy didn’t want to happen; he is, after all, a peace officer. But in the zombie apocalypse, you’re often not even remotely in control of the situation. Murphy might have a pie in the sky way of approaching a problem, but underestimating the aggressiveness of others almost cost him his life. Inez, on the other hand, appears to have fewer issues with using violence if it means the survival of her group. Of course, Lou was also saying some pretty creepy stuff before he got hammered, which is something else to consider.
About this Episode:
I tried something a little bit different for the exterior lighting this time around. I don’t think it works as well as what I’ve been using, but I’m curious what you guys think. This time around, I put some blue construction paper in the background with a light hitting it at an angle to try to cut down on the blue color cast. I don’t know that I like it.
Discussion Question: Targeted Looting
This is a really cool one from BrickVoid, so I’ll just quote him directly:
You and your group have been in a zombie apocalypse for some time now, you’ve figured out how to keep zombies off your back, and you’ve settled into a secure area that is safe and you’re now planning to try and bring back some of the luxuries you were used to in a modern high-tech civilized society.
You also know that since a large part of the population was zombified or eaten by zombies, that there’s a lot of modern high-tech gear out there just waiting to be taken by someone who’s got the opportunity and transport to pull it off.
So, which do you choose? Would you try to recreate the high-tech you’re used to from scratch, or would you try to simply raid the existing tech stock, knowing that the tech support for such is probably also a zombie by now?
