Ronnie’s undead? I thought he was just resurrected Martian-Style.
Well the prefix un means not…so since he is not dead I don’t think how he was resurrected would matter he would be undead
Undeath is generally considered to be something a bit different from life, which is the lot of zombies and usually vampires. Full, as-if-they-hadn’t-died resurrection is therefore considered to be distinct from reanimation, and from whatever they call the process of becoming a vampire.
One way to see this is by attempting to cast Heal on a being in each state: assuming you are permitted to cast Heal on enemies, you will generally find that it increases the HP of creatures who are alive, but decreases the HP of creatures who are undead.
Nah, just use fire. It’ll get rid of the being in question, and thus, the question no longer matters.
Then yoI’ll just get flaming zombies. And not the Ethan kind of flaming.
Ethan’s flaming? Really? He’s pretty subdued if you ask me.
I prefer “alive again”.
Maybe Ethan doesn’t know how Ronnie was brought back
He isn’t safe anywhere it seems XD
Shouldn’t the proper term be “Living Impaired”, I mean really, ya insensitive bastards.
Have you ever read the “Generation Dead” novels? They’re “zombie” stories, but the zombies in question are just teens that randomly come back as undead, not mindless killing machines, so… actually, it’s a pretty neat little series. Yes, you have the normal YA stuff like love triangles and teen angst, but the concept is really clever and well-executed and they have a fair bit of humor and suspense. The undead in question have to fight for their civil rights since they’re considered legally dead, some people question whether they’re really human or the same person while others try to help them out with special programs, others capitalize on it by creating cosmetics or dance clubs exclusively for them… and yes, religious wackos decide it’s a sign of the End Times. Oh, and the first book features an amusingly accurate description of what CNN would do with an hour-long documentary special on the phenomenon…
This is why I bring this up: not only does the term “living impaired” pop up, the “z-word” becomes a controversial slur, and eventually the polite individuals amongst the cast settle on “differently biotic”. Which of course, is a parody of the term “differently-abled”.
I… I’m sorry, I have to go and check now when the next book comes out. I’m reminded why I’m fond of them.
