Change Zombie Day to Demon Day!

Postby The Stalker » Wed Oct 07, 2020 5:35 pm

With concern over the Zombie event being a virus themed NS event, I thought of this idea.

The mechanics of the event would remain the same, but instead of Zombies, we have it be demons/ghosts instead of Zombies. Instead of populations becoming infected, they become possessed.

Military option would be killing possessed people instead of Zombies.

Cure Option would be priest researching exorcisms to remove the demonic spirit.

Join them option be Satanist summoning demons to possess people faster.

I think would be an elegant solution, all that would be needed is to change and update the text and would also give the event a fresh twist.


Another more elaborate idea I had is what I like to call "Monster Mash"

In this version each nation would start as by random or choice a chosen monster, Demon, Werewolf, Vampire, or Zombie. They then would infect other nations to become there chosen type. And instead of the event being about curing Zombies, it be about one of the monster factions having converted the largest population.

This idea would need a bit more coding and fleshing out, but also would be a pretty cool event twist.


I did mention this idea in Z-Day (Zombie Apocalypse) and COVID-19, but I a lot of different discussions were going on, so I thought i'd flesh out the idea and make a thread for it.

Monster Mash sounds incredibly fun—much more than reskinned Z-Day or the normal Z-Day—I would love to see it.

I agree with the above. Monster Mash sounds like a really fun Halloween event.

I like Monster Mash. It shakes things up in the zombie meta. Kill-Squads are ultimately limited by your population being perma-deathed, while the other two don't really perma-kill the other except through an attrition rate. With Monster Mash, you can have multiple factions within a region that set out to convert the region into their monster of choice.

I like the idea of Demon Day for this year, so it’s less work for them to remake, but I doubly love the idea of the Monster Mash idea for the future. That seems awesome.

I may have not expierenced the first one, but it sounds like less people would get upset over it, full support
If you want to send me any cards, best if you send it to this one, Holland DS6, I just need more bank on this account if I want to upgrade the limit, but I just keep wanting to buy cards worth more, cards I like or cards for a collection that I am working on, I already had a lot of cards in the catagory, so mind as well make it an official collection that I could possibly already complete. I try not to break the rules, so if I do it by accident, please just tell me mods, although it would have to be through the TG only for mods, like Ransium had to due to class region. I didn't really check for spellings, so it may be a little unclear, sorry. :P More in my factbook on card+gifts. Finally getting my own card soon!

Sounds like it could potentially be offensive to people of certain faiths, and also intrude on player autonomy a bit. That’s not to say it’s necessarily a bad idea, just that there may be some details that need to fleshed out.

I like the idea of Monster Mash, but admin has to see it in three weeks.

How are exterminating or exorcising demons offensive to any religion?

It’s generally touchy when made light of in a number of Christian denominations. Considering Stalker proposed a priest option, I’m just recommending tact. There are issues on the subject, so I don’t think the idea itself is taboo.

Demon Day or Monster Mash seem fun ^-^ I'd personally want Monster Mash to still be a regional battle with monster factions instead of the whole world competing for one faction to win (sorry if this was implied >.<). One of my favorite parts about Z-Day is that it's more a regional event as opposed to N-day being an interregional event so wouldn't want to lose that at least.

These Christian denominations find it offensive that the game gives an option of killing of demons? Seems odd. Anyways the game can say they’re Violetist demons or something to avoid such an issue
