If you’d like to help build an amazing story by adding your own work, just follow the submission guidelines below and we’d be happy to review your work:
1) The origin or the reasons for the zombies, or why the outbreak happened can be discussed in your story, but is never a known fact.
2) The style of zombies within this story are a typical, old school style. They are Romero type zombies. – Zombies move based on their freshness and injuries sustained. (example, A freshly new undead corpse may move quicker than one that is decayed and older. A zombie missing a leg would be much slower and reduce its movement ability compared to a zombie with two legs.)
3) Zombies are not super human and if anything, lack a lot of the abilities that humans have, making humans superior to them. (Example, zombies can’t just bite through skulls or certain bones just as a typical human couldn’t)
4) Zombie’s don’t eat brains. They crave the flesh of the living. Once their dinner becomes deceased, they move on and are no longer interested in it.
5) Head shots or destroying the zombie brain may stop them and kill them, but it is unknown at this point of the story.
6) Becoming a zombie is a transfer of fluids – example, saliva, blood, a bite or scratch.
7) Transformation period – 1 ~ 3 hours after actual death from being infected. It would depend on the injury and how long it would take the person to die as well as the relative health of the individual. These guidelines are in place to maintain continuity throughout the story.
