The middle of nowhere. After midnight I ate a hot supper, drank some water and went to sleep in an improvised shelter. Campfire was giving me warmth. My horse was resting next to my shelter. Everything was alright. I fell asleep…
Sudden pain woke me up. Zombie bit my leg. It was holding me but I managed to escape from it’s grasp. I fried it in the campfire. There was another zombie. Already badly wounded. It also fried in the fire.
My horse is dead. It means that I may be dead within a week if I will be unlucky. It takes a single wolfpack or a cerbearus.
WTF happened? Are there random zombies in the fields and deep forests? There are two moonshine stills but they are not so close to me. Nothing more.
Why was the second zombie badly wounded?
Is it possible that the campfire attracted those zombies from far away?
I am using Dark Days of Dead. Hordes off. I consider myself a veteran of Cataclysm (I have been playing Cata since 2015) but it was a total surprise for me. Two zombies have never ambushed me at night like that. At least no in the middle of nowhere
