Zombies….why’d it have to be zombies?

Let’s be clear: zombies scare the SHIT out of me. I can’t get through a zombie flick unscathed. Every time I watch one, paranoia creeps in and I have to carry a bat around to make myself feel better.

They’re mindless, soulless monsters that can’t be reasoned with or bribed. They’re relentless ghouls that only know basic hunger, and they’ll never be satisfied.

One or two by themselves isn’t a problem. Depending on the type of zombie we’re referring to, they can be outrun (Rule #1: Cardio!), or you may be able to take them down by yourself no problem. But when they gather together in packs, or a horde if you will, then what’s to stop them from overrunning, and tearing your body apart from a hundred different directions at once? What do you do when your friends, your family, or your life partner gets attacked? What happens when you can’t save them? I can imagine fewer ways to die that are as grisly and scary as that.

But…as much as I fear them, I can’t help but love these shambling terrors of the night.

I might not be able to handle certain zombie flicks (I’ve never seen a George Romero product), but I’ve taken a shine to some of the smaller series that have been popping up recently. I just started watching The Walking Dead, and Highschool of the Dead. I’m enjoying both so far, and I LOVED Zombieland. There’s also a manga called Sankarea for those who enjoy a more humane characterization of the zombies themselves.

So naturally I when I first heard about “Horde Magic”, I jumped at the chance to try it out.
