After the very disappointing showing of Scary Stories from you guys last month, Fear needs to take matters into his own hands- and by 'his own hands', we mean that he's summoning some corpses to hobble around and eat you guys, just to prove that eating human flesh can totally be normal.
The zombies will start pouring in on September 14th, with a few scattered here and there. Unlike zombie movies, which have the outbreak gain forces as people die, in this event Fear is just going to shrug and throw more zombies into the mix until he feels like you're all adequately terrified. Therefore, the number of zombies will continue to increase until September 17th, when we have a full-on apocalyptic event on our hands. You might want to scavenge some purell.
On September 20th, Fear will decide that he's had enough and the remaining zombies will shuffle back toward the tunnels, where they will try to feed on the other critters running around in there. That's gonna turn out well.
These zombies are your typical pop culture monsters- they're slow, not incredibly bright, and their strength lies predominately in numbers and the ease of infection. A bite from them is enough to leave you sickened, and within 24 hours, the virus will take its toll until you join the throng of the undead!
If you're bitten and you don't want to zombify, however, there are a few options presented to you. Removal of the limb shortly after the bite takes place will be enough to save you- unless you got bitten somewhere you can't remove, that is. Additionally, characters with Hope's blessing will be able to delay the infection by several days, though they cannot stop it in its entirety- still, if you get bitten late enough in the event, it will be enough to keep you human until the whole thing is over.
To kill a zombie, one must destroy the brain somehow- blunt force trauma works, a bullet to the head works, basically everything works except for running around and screaming, which might be what you'd prefer to do. No judging!
After the event is over, there may still be a few corpses on the street. It's up to you to clean those up- Fear is a little preoccupied.
► Sept 14th: Zombies attack!
► Sept 17th: Zombies are now out in full force and can group up in hordes easily.
► Sept 20th: Fear sends the zombies who can still ambulate away. Let the cleanup duty begin!
