Here’s the approximate set up from Dawn of the Dead.
Year is 1978.
Three weeks after the zombie apocalypse has begun. Society is crumbling and fallen in some places. Some people are trying to keep society together, others have died or have fled from society to try and find their own way. Your group has decided to strike out on their own, taking what they need to do so, whether it be legal or not.
Zombies are slow and their bite will infect & kill anyone within two to four days by infection, antibiotics help counter the effects for while. After death, the victim will then become a zombie with some memories of their past life, still with the goal of eating humans, even friends.
Your team consists of two SWAT members, Roger and Peter & a News station producer and Air Traffic Reporter, Fran & Stephen respectively. All are physically fit and have no severe qualms about killing undead.
Roger & Peter both have SWAT training and are good at it. Roger can hot-wire vehicles & Peter
knows how to cook. Peter & Roger are both level headed and excellent shots, though Roger can go berserk in certain situations.
Fran knows little that is relevant to survival and is one to three months pregnant.
Fran is level headed yet inexperienced with zombies and with fighting.
Stephen knows how to fly and maintain a helicopter, might also know the most basic workings of firearms, but currently is a lousy shot. Stephen is arrogant, and can be greedy with outsiders.
Equipment consists of two hunting rifles, two pistols and two M16s, some ammunition,
helicopter, fuel, cigarettes.
Mall consists of an average mall with hunting/gun store, hardware store, and unfinished executive offices with boxes of emergency food & flares & access to the roof, there are
showroom cars with fuel on the ground floor of the mall, & the building still has power. There is also a construction yard within about ten to twenty minutes driving distance of the mall.
The zombies are spread out about the mall, but are not currently in the unfinished executive office part of the building.
How do you proceed?
