In the nineteen thirties, Winston Churchill was a voice in the wilderness, speaking out against the rise of Nazi Germany. Today, I am very much like Churchill, warning anyone who crosses my path of the imminent danger faced by America today. Not just America, but the entire human species.

We are threatened by our own dead. You see, sometimes they reanimate. And when they do, they are always hungry for fresh, salty, warm, human brains.

Do not call me insane. I have never been fired by NPR, though I must admit to feeling nervous when a member of the Undead-American community sits near me on an airplane. How can one not notice the bad breath of the open grave in such a closed environment?

Not even Hitler, chowing down on vegetables and farting uncontrollably, could emit such hellish odors.

Thankfully, I am not alone in my convictions that zombies are a threat to be taken quite seriously. Perhaps responding to my earlier posting about zombie phenomena in the insect world, Newsweek is directing its formidable journalistic resources to examining the presence of the undead in our community.

And again, I take full credit when any major institution treats our zombie foes with the attention that they deserve.

I just downloaded it, and in fact all the bonus firefights. Thanks!

For those who simply MUST practice their anti-Zombie tactics, I can suggest no better preparation than with the CONFLICT OF HEROES: STORM OF STEEL and AWAKENING THE BEAR bonus Firefight entitled "All Soul's Day." You can find it as a zipped download here (you may need to create an account at the Academy Games website to access this page). Here's the teaser from the scenario:

"This is a 2 to 4 player firefight that requires both Awakening the Bear and Storms of Steel.
Intro: The heavy morning mists cover the village of Jadrino on the Zusha River. The air is cool and in a few weeks the river will be covered in ice. The Germans are recouperating from heavy fighting in the past weeks, lulled by their warm beds in this peaceful part of the front. The sentries are shivering but alert as strange sounds echo to them from the river and through the alleyways. Shadows move through the mist, ignoring the guard’s challenges. Then the rancid smell of rotting flesh hits them, overwhelming the senses. The guards tense as a primal fear fills them. Something is wrong. Lumbering awkward shadows move towards the sentries from all directions. A panicked youth fires at a bulk coming at him. He fires again and again, then screams. Minutes later he makes his way towards his comrades, lumbering closer and closer."
Average playing time: 1 - 1.5 hours. Designer: Gunter Eickert.

It was actually shambling across the grounds of the cemetery in Evans City. Some guy named Romero took some pictures. But Chilly Billy talked about it.

It must have been heading to Chilly Billy's house?

I am very aware and indeed proud of the fact that modern zombie was discovered outside of Pittsburgh.

Funny but so true. We go the way of Rome and rapidly soon I fear. One only needs to look at the spew our kids are taught in public school to see how they become undead. Either mindless zombies programmed to eat brains, or blood sucking Vampires leeching the blood of the living. Gah~ I think I'll get garlic today!

Van Helsing, call your office please~

Osprey Publishing, who does all those marvelous books on historical armies, battles, and campaigns surely takes this seriously. They have recently published ZOMBIES: A HUNTER'S GUIDE.

Time to take out SPI's 'Dawn of the Dead' and practice those skills...
