GURPS Zombies - Warehouse 23
Fear of Disease Decay isnt the only horror that infected zombies convey; theres also disease in its own right. People have a healthy fear of infection thats a survival mechanism, arguably a human instinct.
We fear sickness even though we know that normal pathogens incubate for days to weeks two to 21 days for Ebola, two to 12 weeks for rabies , that the deadliest diseases have survivors, and that if we beat the odds, well still be human. But zombie plagues arent so forgiving. They work in hours, minutes, or perhaps seconds.
There are no survivors that the plot doesnt call for. Worst of all, victims who succumb become monsters, and go forth to infect friends and loved ones.
Hows your fear of infection now? The means of infection can vary: a pathogen borne in saliva or blood, a contagious curse, even foul macroscopic creatures that breed inside the body and creep out to crawl into the orifices of the living.

Throw in a little decay to make the disease even scarier. And countless forces, from communist propaganda to capitalist cola ads, say Conform. The threat of facelessness hangs over us all. Zombies are a wonderful symbol for this fear.
Play up their lack of creativity, will, and identity. Make them servants that do what theyre told. Emphasize the huge mobs of the classic apocalypse scenario, and show how people who had names, lives, and loves get sucked into the faceless sea known only as the horde. Or use infection again, but this time to capitalize on our fear of becoming just like everybody else, individuality supplanted by an acquired program.
Fear of Cannibalism When some serial killer chops up and eats his victims, or a drug-crazed maniac chews somebodys face off, it freaks people out. And with good reason humans dont do that.
There, its customarily spelled zombi or zonbi, and can be associated with any of living-but-drugged slaves, animated corpses, or bound spirits that augment the power of a bokor sorcerer.
Details vary by individual tradition and with anthropological mis interpretation. Having been developed by African slaves in the Caribbean, much of Vodous jargon has African origins. Here the trail gets hard to follow, as various Niger-Congo languages offer a bewildering variety of similar terms: ndzumbi, nzambi, nzumbe, nzumbi, zambi, zumbi, etc.
Meanings encompass fetish, god, and cadaver or spirit of a dead person. Vodou practitioners might have borrowed such a name to describe a bound spirit, the fetish in which it was bound, a slave created by such a binding, or a deity worshipped by zombie-makers.
Its safe to say that somebody going for a Vodou feel could use any of these variants. To the typical gamer, theyll sound about the same and send the right message.

Zombie ghouls turn that on its head. They represent the veneer of civility crumbling, exposing us for the opportunists we are. The classic way to strike fear into hearts with cannibalism is to have the zombies eat people. Undead ghouls are scary enough, consuming the living to maintain an unnatural state. Far scarier are ghouls that arent dead yet crazy or infected zombies that evoke all the terror of a psycho killer without the faintest hope that words will be understood or that remorse will grant a reprieve.
