Didn't get to see Batman Begins last night as it turns out plans had changed and we saw something random again. Ghostbusters in fact. Then I was a very Happy Man at the Happy Man as they stock red Aftershock. So I had a double of that and amused the students with my many faces of pain as I drank it. Turn out is getting slightly better - we managed at least 7 people this week. I think starting the voting sooner rather than later would improve that too.

Have decided that Urban dead thing is a big fat waste of time. Chances of me finding a tasty human to snack on is very slim. By the time I find someone, I've run out of action points so I can't do much damage to them. When I come back later they've already fled.


but you can't play UrbanDead 24x7. You can only play once every 24 hours by my reckoning. 50 x 1/2 hour = 25 hours - which means that you only get your full quota of AP's once a day.

Well you could return more frequently and make use of whatever APs you have at the time. Playing once every 24 hours does increase the chances that you return to find yourself dead in an unprotected building. Which is pretty much what happened to me.

I only play once every 24 hours. Sure my zombies are usually dead, but once I have anklegrab (one does now) that only means a cost of 1 AP.
My survivor has not yet died.
Metagaming (i.e. joining a group) is the way forward.

I tend to play once every few hours if I'm at a computer. It means that if I have found a poor hapless fool to munch on, that I can get a few hits in before he returns and flees from me.

Whilst I think joining a group is indeed the way forward, I think it's against the whole spirit of the game. Any groupings should be formed within the game itself.

One of the things I've also noticed, is that people keep coming up to me and doing a DNA scan. Clearly they're looking for their friends to revive, but I'd have thought converting all the zombies back to humans would be a good way forward?

I eventually found a revivication syringe but it took me ages to find. If its a one shot wonder (I'm about to find out) then really you can't do that since survivors who want to be zombies can either jump out of a building or stand in the street to get killed. Its a big waste.


Hmm still don't know as it didn't work. I got a message saying:
"Revivification has no effect on the recently dead."
So clearly you have to wait a bit before it will work.

Or maybe that was a person who started as a zombie?

Nope even people who start as zombies can be revivified, there's a zombie skill that you can buy so as not to be revivified....
