Crossroads - Which way?

Not much zombie gaming and modelling this week as an article in a 'Wargame' mag spurred on my other project on the brother site Plastic VCBW. So terrain and another platoon was started for that.

The Christmas Edition. A decent all around read.

However, I have been thinking about my next zed adventure. The original concept of Adventures in North Carolina was to write a diary of a zombie hunter. Bringing into it some hunting, tracking and survivalist theory. However, as I tried to develop some new and entertaining exploits all I ended up doing was going on yet another zed hunt. What to do?



As a result, I think I'll return to Moor City and the cops of St Michael's Precinct. There's more scope for gangers, survivors and even to bring the National  Guard. Also the action will take place in an urban environment as well as the THW rules/scenarios tend to lend themselves more to that theatre.

So thinking cap back on for the next tale of Jack, George and the lads from St Michaels. Any ideas?

Hope you're all staying dry. Thanks for popping in.

  1. Well I am enjoying your "Walton" Zombies! But If you feel you need to go back to town. I am sure you will do that justice as well. As for Ideas, Rescue someone, retrieve something, Search an area for something, maybe supplies or information, reclaim a district (building or area.) from the undead hordes. Escape from some area to a safer area. Set a trap (or ambush) by using a Judus Goat either for another survivor group or a zombie horde. Repair something (possibly defences) while being attacked.

    With luck you can bounce an idea out of those very loose scenario options.
    Whatever you decide, best of luck and I look forward to reading all about it.

    1. I know I liked the concept,but the playing got too samey.

  3. I can well understand your apparent frustration with the zombie hunting thing and I think many others have a similar frustration with many of the very "samey" scenarios of "walk to the nearest building, kill the zombies, search, loot, recruit etc." Once intial enthusiasm has become dented by this repetition, interest quickly wanes. I've read many, many zombie blogs that follow this route and their scenarios are very similiar, but their are some truly inspirational ones out there.
    I'd go for the urban environent and take another look at all the great scenarios others have come up with as well as the ones ATZ which I haven't seen used by many (bloggers at least).

    1. Yep, this is not as lucid as your response, but I agree with you there.

  4. Shall look forward to seeing what happens in the big city. Though I was enjoying the hunting tale. But if it doesn't inspire you then its time for a change of tac :D

  5. Steal scenarios from your favourite books and films then add zombies, win win it's a favourite anyway and there's zombies.

    1. What a good idea! Now where to start.

  6. How about heading back to the city for some significant plot driving reason and then heading back out to 'home' no reason the two can't work together. Like everyone has said, essentiually all you need is a hook and the desire
