The Noble Project
“Zombie” Plague was introduced into the town by a wandering survivalist named Jack Adams. He fled his community with the intent ending his life as the virus wracked his mind and body. When it came down to it, he could not bring himself to commit suicide. He eventually stumbled upon the Madras, begging them to kill him. The citizens obliged the stranger’s request.
The townsfolk disposed of his body, unwittingly contracting a biological agent that Jack carried. The origins of this plague are unknown.
The townsfolk called the disease “The Dizzy Spell” as the afflicted first complained of dizziness. The disease usually takes about a week or two to fully take hold and once complete, the victim becomes a mindless shell with no will of its own. They are otherwise healthy, except for sores on their bodies. Although they do not initiate any activities, they will respond to commands and follow simple instructions.
