Yup, I do that too... but I'm not bugging out in the ZPAW though.mattpytlak wrote:People do it all the time when there isn't a zombie apocalypse happening.Lucretius wrote:Oh, and letting people run around alone in the sorrounding woods, looking for mushrooms (and getting a whooping handful each time!), is stoooopid.
My point was simply that mushroom gathering might be a medium-to-low-priority task, but done that way when the zeds are roaming makes a lousy SOP.... you need a team with at LEAST one dedicated lookout.
I love picking 'shrooms, but it takes some heavy-duty staring at the ground, which is fine under normal circumstances, but kinda silly in the ZPAW. The lone, ground-staring mushroom picker, and the lone, ground-staring emo - both will be killed by the zombie invasion.
The hunter/gatherer team with serious skills and a good SOP will probably thrive, though!
Oh, and I'm building up my stock of dried mushrooms, which lasts for YEARS, so I won't have to take that particular trip into the woods in the ZPAW (or use the trip in the more fun way the characters did in ep2...).
