We’re all used to seeing zombies in a modern context, but sometimes (always) it’s fun to imagine how societies of the past might respond to the undead menace.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to build a vignette that shows zombies in some sort of historical context. History here means basically anytime that’s not now. If you’d like, you could go back only a few years, or all the way back to the cradle of civilization. Here’s the thing though, the historical context has to be obvious, so if you’re pulling from recent history it needs to be clear when this is taking place. Obviously, the farther back you go, the easier that will be.

First up, you’ll get these two “Keep Portland Weird” custom zombies:
And to sweeten the deal, I’m going to throw in the Gold Crate items, which includes not one, but two gold-plated BrickArms:
Oh, but you don’t get the envelop thing, because I threw that away. Sorry.
Just me baby, just me.
You know what to do.
