Z-sec
:unsure:
(if you dont get it, its a reference to doom3 gun wielding zombies)

whats the story behind gun wielding zombies?
military men effected by zombie virus?
security officers turned deadite?
normal people who had guns, turned into zombies?

It would help with coming up with a name

Technically, if a zombie can wield a gun and fire it, that means the Infection hasn't fully spread, thus it is not techincally "Dead" or "Undead" because the host still has some traits previously used, such as firing a gun.

Most probably "infected", or "Diseased".

It'll be The Faded.
Here's the results:
Half-dead:0
Gunner:0
Shooter:1
The Faded:2
Fallen:1
Z-Sec:1 (that's a mistake, there's 1 for z-sec and 1 for infected/diseased)
Infected/Diseased:1

How about the slightly undead?
the slightly dead?
the unslight dead?
or Unslightly undead?

:p
still think there has to be something better to call them...

And I still think Faded is inaccurate. They are not faded, they are in the process of fading, therefore you should call them The Fading.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

No, they're Faded. They faded as far as they can go. If they were in the process, then after a while to have it make sense, then I would need to take them out and make them regular Shamblers.

Not necessarily. You could make them rarer as time goes by, but they could be people who have spent too long in the presence of the infected and have slowly begun to turn undead, or something. There are numerous possibilities. They could be people who have been spat on by infected, or only cut rather than bitten, or anything really. It's up to you as the chief game designer to come up with potential stories.

Aight, I'll work on background stories. But they're Faded, with partial immunities to the social degeneration, causing them to be 'half-human' in a sense.

I like the font and the background, but it's all fuzzy and small and I could barely read it.

I could read it just fine, and the font's fuzzy cause of the effects. I could make a new one without the blur.

You haven't done anything yet. Nobody cares. All you've done is create a few models and a little banner. You're going to need much more than that if you want to get this hosted, or even remarked upon.
