    As a real life Mailman, I'd be a courier/Messanger. I'd write a letter to Karl Franz, leave town fast as hell, and personalty deliver it! (Deal with it)
    Have money, want skulls. Human, ork, grot, eldar. Cracked or whole. With or without jaws. No helmets!
    PM me for info.

    I'd be the one saying "I told you we should have cremated our dead, but nooooo, you wouldn't believe me. Look at all those forests of timber, but noooo, you still thought burying them was a good idea. "Fire is unnatural" you said! More unnatural than a *******' zombie horde?!"

    I'm not sure I'd be much use during the event. But if might have paid to listen to me beforehand......

    Town watchmen: I'd be used to running the odd werewolf, cultist, mutant or even beastmen/beast child that had been hidden by it's parents, in addition to taking thieves and dealing with drunks and vagabounds. This means I'm used to fairly horrific stuff (mind you, so are most people who reach even teenage years in the old world, so zombies are not that new. I have some fighting experience. I'd be one of the few people in the village with access to weapons and/or armour (depending on wealth of the village) I'd also hopefully have a fair number of hounds/dogs, normally used for dealing with the worse sort of criminal but just as good against, and hopefully I would hear of the first rumors of the zombies.

    It all depends.

    Are you named?
    Do you have a tragic and unique past?
    Is there a special talent which sets you apart from the other guards?

    If you answered yes to 2/3 of those questions, chances are that you will survive the zombie outbreak. Unless of course there is another villager with a similar background, in which case as a guard you will probably die defending him/allowing him to escape.

    If you answered no to 2/3 of those questions chances are that you will be the first to get chomped.

    I'd be the villiage idiot. Inexplicably stupid people always fair well in zombie movies, while rational thinkers end op on the menu. Maybe the zombies know theres no brains up for grabs and leave the 'tards alone?...

    You forgot: "Are you wearing a red tunic?"

    I would imagine that would raise your chance of death/undeath.

    Not in the Old World. Red is expensive and rare, it's the beige and brown shirts that get the privilege of dying for their betters.

    And things that require tactics are BAD. The less tactics involved, the better, and it means less things can go wrong.

    Think towards more of a group survival and having to fight through it type scenario, not (the obvious real outcome) hiding in one's house or the easiest way to kill yourself


    Also try to think of as many as possible. Here is what I / my group / this forum thought of so far:
    1) Huntsman - Bows, Survival in harsh conditions
    2) Militia - More skilled in combat than your average Joe
    3) Engineer - Gun
    4) Blacksmith - Make quality weapons or armor
    5) Duelist - Swift and efficient
    6) Lumberjack - Strong, Access to large Felling Axe
    7) Town Leader - Able to keep everyone together
    8) Alchemist - Access to potions and medicine
    9) Priest of Morr - miracles to take down the undead with and lore about them
    10) Noble - personal guard, good equipment, a riding horse, most likely knowledge of fencing
    11) Battle Wizard - knowledge of Necromancy and great power
    12) Coachman - a coach and horses to draw it
    13) Messenger - riding skills and a fast runner
    14) Barber - Surgeon, medical knowledge
    15) Rat catcher - a small but vicious dog, knowledge of the sewers
    16) Butcher - Knowledge of ... cleaving I suppose
    17) Messanger - Speed

    Denial:
    ) Halfling Fieldwarden - No halflings in our game!
    Does number 5 even exist as a profession? Surely it's just "quarrelsome posh boy". I would also disallow 10 and 11 on the grounds they are not villagers.

    I would be the local gravedigger - I carry a large shovel. For me coping with zombie outbreaks is simply part of my everyday job.

    Yes duelist exist as a profession (unless they changed it), in addition to the random people who fight in duels it is also the name of the champion of Swordsman units.

    The local noble is also a villager, his mansion is placed by the central square (next to the temple), his name is Ehrwig von Lutzen. I hope they get him first.

    While the pricing part is correct it means less than you think, don't for a second believe the red/white Talabeclanders to be wealthier than the disciplined and well equipped all-whiteclad Reiklanders.

    I'd be a retired mercenary, and ultimate survivor...with a twist! A zombie outbreak is, no doubt, a curse but it also opens up possibilities.
    You can take the odd chance to kill off that fat bastard of a rich merchant, whose wife ( and yound dougthers you'd been having affairs with) you've been secretly admiring for years, without too much fuss. Unfortunately, having met the real zombies on the battlefield before, you know they do not eat corpses (folk tales confuse them with ghous), so you know you'd need to kill the slimeball in a suitably gruesome way (a clean stab wound would be too much telling). Then you'd let a few of the creatures break into the house, and step in to quickly and effectively chop them to tiny bits and play mr. white knight, to impress the ladies. Yeah, sounds good. In a group survival mindframe, i'd look for other skilled figthers, especially those not so bright to realise you're, sometimes, sending them to their doom to buy time.
