you're just like my one friend, I swear, though if it's not too insulting towards him, you seem incredibly prepared.
anyway, I'm a writer, specifically, I guess you could call be a blogger, though that doesn't do it justice.
I mostly like to bounce ideas as much as possible, so please, if I could pick your brain for a mere twenty five years, that'd be great.
anyway, as for a little question to see if you're really active (I'm a serious skeptic), if you're given your choice of melee, assuming proficeincy and proper gear, what would you pick? I'd pick a crowbar, honestly. opinion?
Crowbars don't make that great of a melee tool, because they're not designed for it. A weapon is a tool like any other. Improvising is possible, sure, but the entire point of a tool is that it's designed and crafted with a specific purpose in mind. A crowbar is designed and crafted with an entirely different purpose in mind than being a fantastic option for cracking skulls. Though it certainly can, the construction of most make them difficult to hold and swing with one or both hands efficiently, and this is double true for making the swing forceful enough. Choking up on one high enough for good control with both hands move a lot of the mass downward, away from the point of impact, which ultimately fucks you on the amount of force you're trying to deliver, and the odd shapes on the end can make the crowbar rebound at odd, unexpected angles on impact. There's also the weight to consider. Any decently sized, sufficiently heavy-duty crowbar tends to weigh as much or more than what you'd recognize as a longsword. Those, mind, are designed to be held and swung with both hands.
Knives are also not exactly a great option for self defense against a human target, or even for attacking one unaware, since they possess practically no capacity for rapidly disabling a human. Even a gunshot to the chest that destroys the heart and both lungs can leave a person alive long enough to kill you if they're armed. Knife wounds, while horrifying, are generally not immediately lethal due to the mechanics of what is actually required to shut a human down quickly. Worse, unless someone is specifically trained to handle a knife properly in hand to hand combat, they're as likely as not to injure themselves with their own weapon. As a means of absolutely last-ditch defense, they're acceptable due to their size and ease of carry, but self defense is done much more safely and magnitudes more effectively with a handgun.
understood. and very well explained. are you sure you're not at least semi-proficient in a English Degree? because seriously, if you applied this much thought to your grammar in every situation, it'd be a minor miracle that you wouldn't be a professor.
and sorry for the derailed conversation, anyway, thanks for the responces, and sorry for the late reply.
do you midn if I bounce some ideas off of you, specifically, and bear with me, the kind that isn't entirely rooted in fact? or is that asking too much?
wow, seriously, I need to proofread this stuff before I send it. anyway, as I was discussing with Xeno Jelly, I'm considering a new idea for a hybrid between the Zombie/Undead types, and the Xenomorph. specifically, this is what I was thnking:
1, a virus infects a human body while it's still living, and then reanimates after killing.
2, the Undead progresses through the usual ideas of killing and being killed, with this distinct difference:
3 when a "Zeke" dies, they leave behind a corpse, filled with special egg sacs that spawn a type of small bug, similar to a mite or the like. this bug then comes off of the body in swarms, looking for a host. they only last a day, but during that time, in populated areas, they can spread up to a good fifty embryos
4, the Embryo matures, growing inside the host until it comes out, usually through the chest, but it can come out of various other sources.
5, this new form, a Larva, then goes about killing and eating, until it matures into a full grown Adult.
6. the Adult is literally a Xenomorph, and can spread as such. this unit will go around creating a Hive, acting as the leader form as it starts kidnapping and creating embryos out of people.
7. once they've gathered enough units, the main virus forcibly kills off all of the Undead in a relavtively large area, going ahead and making more of these little bugs from them.
8, and pardon the expression, "Slaughter them all..."
thats pretty much as far as I've got. if you don't mind, let's start on stage 1, so it's relatively simple and straightforward.
thoughts? opinions? I'm open to the whole Crazy Idea thing, had it before. but I'd love some specifics.
I dont think we should have stopped Anons from editing this wikia, I mean yeah, there were some trolls or vandals but there were still a lot of users who were good. Even I started editing this wiki as a Anon. I think it could help revive this wikia.
If people were so inclined to edit an article, they would create an account. I don't see the reason to let wandering vandals continue trying to ruin whatever they find. Anons mostly did not provide useful additions to the website before, but they quite frequently vandalized it.
Hey there, I figured since because you are an admin, you'd be the best person to go to about whether or not fan stories about Zombie apocalypse are allowed to be written here. If not, do you know any wikis where it would be the best place to do it?
