Does TWD have rules that you don't see in other Zombie series?

I don't know if other zombie series follow the "we are all infected" rule.

What rule is that?

Found this on the TWD trope page.

Quote (selected)
The zombies in the show can be surprisingly smart and agile, depending on their physical state when seen. They can use tools, open doors, and in spite of not being alive seem to occasionally have glimmers of recognizing something from when they were alive.

Discussed in detail between The Governor and the researcher Milton in "Walk With Me". Milton explains that the walkers Michonne was traveling with stopped trying to attack her because she cut off their arms and lower jaws. He later hypothesizes that the walkers retain a slight recollection of who they once were, and that they also starve (albeit slower than living humans).

That is in fact not seen very often, but only if you guys want to use something like this.

If you guys want any help establishing this, and the rules and such of how zombies work, I do know quite a bit about zombies.

I really like that the zombies retain a small recollection of their memories. In TWD, a girl was holding a teddy bear, a mother tried to open the door of her house, and some zombies were sitting in church.

The "we are all infected rule" is that everyone has the zombie disease, but it doesn't activate unless you die or get bitten by a zombie. So even if you die by blood loss from a leg wound, you'd still turn into a zombie even if you weren't bitten. I'm not zombie savvy, so I don't know how many other series  use this.

I'm considering joining, but I'm still up in the air.

That is something I still despise about the show. If I wanted Romeroesque zombies, I'd watch a Romero film. When watching TWD, I'd prefer to see zombies the way they are portrayed in the comic.

I don't need everything to be the same between the show and the source material (in fact I'm loving the changes they've made going back to the beginning of the second season), but it really irks me that they'd mess with the zombies.

Yeah, by saying walking dead I meant we will play by the rules that the world of walking dead sets up. Everyone gets infected and the zombies have medium agility. The memory of zombies could be up to the writer I suppose.

And secrets, I'm so glad we had the same idea. XD

Fenix, would you be interested in writing up a summary of how the specifics of the apocolyptic world is scientifically? We could put it in the planning thread when we started it up. :]

Lol thanks Medorei.

OKAY, so I'm thinking of starting the planning thread today. What do we want to call the RP? Name suggestions anyone?

Those are better than anything I could come up with. x.x

I would just say like

So what kind of route are you going for? Zombie-focused (Resident Evil, Left 4 Dead, etc.), or Character-focused (Walking Dead)?

I was hoping for a character focus. Isn't that how most RPs operate?

How is l4d zombie focused if you don't mind me asking? We'll all be playing survivors if that answers the question.

And awesome fe. When you insist it up ill start a planning thread and we can get this thing rolling. :D

I say we start now. I have a few ideas. I even have a couple characters thought up so I'm all pumped up for this.

Oh and as for whatever title we go with, let's not stick the word "dead" in it. That's used for way too many zombie series. Walking Dead, Dead Rising, Dawn of the Dead, Highschool of the Dead, I could go on.
