Brrrraaaaaiiiinsss

I think, there should be around a 1 percent chance that instead of getting ghosted by a zombie/mummy, you get turned into a zombie/mummy until you get to a cross!
You'd take on the attributes and skills of a zombie/mummy until you got ressurected, then you become humans and your skills/attributes are restored... or something else, I dunno

Sounds good! But what would happen if you got killed as a mummy?

You'd die forever, remaining on this world, chained to your unholy corpse, as a whisp, a mere shadow of it's past.

But for real, it would be an amusing thing. However, to make it increasingly fun, lets make it so only priests can cure zombification.

I disagree. Zombies are stupid, unthinking and follow their perpetual hunger for blood.
They will not want to change back to normal persons. Beside I don't want to see player-zombie who following any priest and begging him for cure. Better to start from normal disease.

No..
Homepage
Mummies were once members of a secret guild called "The Spirits". They were devoted followers of the goddess Cherga. Not much is known but rumours tell that once in the past they betrayed her and a mighty curse has been spoken upon them letting them return after death not to find eternal peace. With enviousness they look upon the mortals and in their despair attack them when ever they meet them.

im seeing a lot of noobs goin "WHAT THE "!()#¤(""#!(!????" when they all ghoulified after taking on to many zombies in the crypt..but, i actually like the idea:D would be fun to limp around the trollsbane and other places chewing on peoples brains...:Dbuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut the question is what happens when you get clouded by another player? eh..you die and have to go all the way back to the crypt? have a "special" cross just for player zombies to spawn? and then having to seek out a priest..dont know how the noobs are gonna like it though^^ AND when someone gets turned into a zombie how are we supposed to react? not cloud THAT particulare zombie because you know him and awl dat? eh...might get confusing with 20 zombies wandering around..eh dont know..im for it:)

Dragons don't exist and teenagers can't shoot boulders of murderous flames from the tip of their fingers either.

The german language indication is Zombie.
The English is Mummy. (I think..:P)

and if you make a look at the indication is sometimes different to the Name of the NPC

Same with Ogres and Trolls. I think.

No, this is a mummy.

This is a zombie.

(Too soon?)

Just because they look more like zombies now doesn't mean they're zombies. They used to look like mummies.

Do notice that he said about a 1 percent chance. Now that means that about 1 out of every 100 noobs that actually GET killed by zombies become one. In other words, there won't be that many running around (you may be lucky to see one).

EDIT: Back in my first days of playing, they were mummies. Thus shall they always be in my mind.

EDIT 2: But then... they also looked like mummies back then.

People already adopted the term "ghosting" instead of "clouding".

Mummies and the Yellow Cross must stay like this forever! :P

Contact your GM of choice for further reconsiderations?

to TOPIC;
You have contracted: Brain Rot in an early stage.
((warning stage: char gets feeling/constitution emotes;))

Your Brain Rot has advanced towards some disgusting indications.
((char begins to generate autoemotes in growing number and intensity.))
,
Your Brain Rot has developped to an incurable state.
((the autoemotes sign the near "death" of the char. the char is highly contagious now.))

or charemotes only;
Your head feels empty, and somehow everything is so misty.
then
As you awoke today, you had bled from your nose, over night.
,
Somehow you feel hungry, a hunger you can`t define.
,
Everything has turned gray, nothing is moving, you need someone to help you. Right now!

Maryday, I think you need a priest to look at your head.
-
I think this will just end up badly for characters. Once upon a time swish1 and his buddies were turned into ogres. He ended up PKing them because he saw an ogre. (-_-)

I think any mummy who turns up IG will get PKed quickly and/or PK back.

why not make them a ghoul or something, but to help the players out give them a text like "you now have a hunger for blood, death and murder" if you want to get really script happy, script it so characters are slowly pulled towards a character they can see on screen (like to steps controlled forward, 1 forced backwards) then they start attacking, limited only to a list of words, stuff like that.

honestly though, in general i think the chance of being turned into a zombie is cool, but maybe only for older accounts, or something, ones that could be more likely to rp the situation correctly.

Uh Tanistan, what you're basically describing is telling someone to go on a PKing spree... And helping him out in fact.

So if someone decides to roleplay talking to him a bit he'll end up being attacked by the automated script.

Not the nicest for a RP-ing game.

Rping a zombie isn't all about blood, death and brains.

I found it had more to do with being completely invisible until someone needed a power trip.


Anyway, i personally wouldn't like this proposal, it would be too much coding for an obviously rarely used system, i mean, who's going to RP a zombie when they can be killed by anyone walking by, which most people wouldn't even think about.

Plus ghosts are better anyway.
