shockcore should do a zombie RP server

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"
Humans are surprisingly capable of killing shit when its a Do-or-die scenario, regardless of the opposing figure being human or animal.

You're not gonna get anyone to feel bad about killing a dude whos body has been warped into a state so agonizing that death is the only outcome, headcrab removed or not.

Then make it so the zombies are slightly mystical, and the changes are only temporary if you have the cure, otherwise death is death. :geek:

oh i know they are, but there are those who would leave people to not want the guilt of killing a helpless person, and while they can justify it with, "they are in a better place", it still lingers in their minds.

i feel like it really isn't hard at all to justify killing a headcrab zombie considering that the person is basically torn apart and barely resemble a human. even if they are still somewhat conscious they'd be in a constant agony so it'd really be mercy if someone ended their life . that's why headcrabs are probably not a good choice if you want the moral ambiguity with zombies

yea i guess.


OR

we could have a secondary virus that mutated people into crazy zombies but were more on the living side, make it mystical.
