What's new

shockcore should do a zombie RP server

dead space colony necromorph outbreak rp NOW.
deadass that'd be cool. Though we all know outbreaks dont last long, so it wouldnt make sense for there to be many survivors
Few survivors, focus on surviving / storybuilding and scavenging for supplies to not starve or die of dehydration. Hunt for equipment to keep fighting, etc.

Ohhh lord, another player which came up with an idea of a post-apocalyptic scenario where zombies ERP the fuck out of you. I won't lie.... I got a bad feeling bout this son.

Headcrabs are too easy to cull, imo. It's an animal, not something that can replicate en-masse in large enough numbers, in a short enough time, to generate anything like a mass spread of infected. Its also just... goofy. I dont find hl2 zombies very scary OOC, IC, sure. Ooh darn so nasty- but other than that its just... eh.

Use necromorphs, or just- anything other than headcrabs and standard zeds.
They don't have to be common-place, but would you really shoot a headcrab zombie with the knowledge that the host is fully aware and does not want this to happen and is still alive? while ti is very easy to say yes, you'd essentially be killing a person which psycologically is very fucked up.

Or maybe like a facehugger style zombie, some spindly creature that latches to people's heads and turns them into agressive zombies, something much like the face-hugger, because quite frankly in my books, the face hugger is scarier than any headcrab and could aesthetically make a very cool zombie.

Yes, because if it's trying to kill me, I don't give a fuck what it wants, I'm saving my ass first. It's like asking me if I'd shoot another human being because they break into my house and try to rob me because he/she needs to do it for food, or whatever.

It is not as simple as that, you will have a natural and artificial bias as the situation is fiction so you can act how you like with no consequences, eb they moral or physical.

If there is someone who is very much conscious, scared, not wanting to hurt you and calling out for help, there is easily a moral issue, if you are going to play what would essentially be a robot and just murder everything, that is fine but you miss out on that piece of roleplay. Look at ANY zombie franchise, or almost everyone, someone einevitably gets ehld up or killed because they see a friend begin to turn, and they are hit with the choice of kill or leave, you have the guilt of killing a friend or family member, or you leave them alive, realistically it is a hard call instead of:

"Oh...dey die..boom ded"
