3 things you'd bring with you if zombies invade.
« on: July 30, 2009, 10:22:14 PM »
The title says it all. There's been a topic about where you'd go, but not one about what you'd use, as far as I've seen. So what would you bring along and why? Here's mine:

1. A sword from my collection (I've heard people saying "A crowbar doesn't need reloading".. I say "a crowbar doesn't cut directly through flesh" :-))
2. A bicycle or skateboard (No gas needed. The skateboard is probably best, since you can defend yourself with it in case the sword breaks or some other problem arises. It's slower though)
3. A laptop with internet connection... (To play games when I'm bored... :roll: To keep in contact with potential survivors)

Show me yours!

1. A sword, titanium or some alloy that is durable yet light. Diamond edged, never need to sharpen it.

2. A crossbow, renewable ammo, enough said.
3. An paramedic first aid kit.

1. A machete or mallet - more easily weilded than a sword (for me at least). The upside to a mallet is it doesn't cut into things but crushes them, if the virus is transferred through blood, it would be better if their infected blood wasn't spurting around everywhere. The upside to a machete though is that it's so good as a general tool as well.
2. Dozens of rags of various sizes - can be used for many things. Wiping away blood, bandaging, blanket, shield, temporary mask against 'evils in the air', protects skin, can be used to help start fires, possible fuse.
3. A backpack - so I have somewhere to put everything that I find while scavenging, running, hiding (something I'll be doing a LOT of).

  A large crowbar, unlike a sword it is both a weapon and a tool.  Never needs sharpening and great for prying should the need arise.

  Crossbow.  Like Oni states, you can retrive your ammo if you survive an encounter, but also, it's maintenance is much easier than a rifle would be.  Anyone with a simple understanding of mechanics can fix one.

  Backpack, Large, also for reasons already stated. (mostly food stuff, spare cloths, walki talki.  After all, how long do you think the servers would be available after a zombie epidemic?)

  Edit: After some thought, I think I will replace the crowbar with a firemans axe, still a good tool, but has a longer reach.

Why would you need condoms?

I see the crossbow was a hit. I was under the impression we were talking about items that you couldn't really scavage for.

Full body armor w/chainmail
Protection from any nasty infectious bites, scratches, etc.

Flamethrower
Not practical nor as survival efficient as a crossbow, but I like to watch'em squirm and cook.

Custom pair of large butterfly swords
The only thing better than one sword...is two.
To act human is to give meaning to something meaningless.

Sanity is a matter of perception.

I like your way of thinking *thumbs up*

Ok - other than things I can scavenge for (and find fairly easily)

1. My Boyfriend - I know this sounds pretty stupid, but he would be great for watching my back and kicking zombie ass. Living alone surrounded by zombies = bad idea. Stick in small groups; at least have one person, and that person would be my bf. He taught me all I know about sword fighting. Plus, he would be good company. :)

2. Weapon - here, I would take what I got. sword, crossbow, crowbar, gun, whatever; though I prefer something I don't have to reload. Anything could be used as a weapon though, so I could scavenge for some nice metal bar or something if any of my other weapons proved unsuitable.

3. First Aid - Yes, if the zombie virus is spread by disease, this would be pretty necessary. Entire limbs may need to be cut off at times. Any other time, this wouldn't be quite so necessary, but here...

The other thing to think about is this: Would being a zombie truly be that bad?
