defending was The Cube and the cinema.
However we quickly ruled it because of it
having no stratigical importance and the
fact that it has only a small amount of
supplies. Also we felt it was too far away
from the other locations to defend it and
another location.The Cube/Cinema
The next location we considered was the graffiti underpass. We felt that there was no reason to defend this location though, and that it would be hard to defend because it has two very large entrances.
We all agreed that we wouldn't defend this location and moved on.Graffiti Underpass
A short walk from the graffiti underpass was our next location, the lake. Again we felt that there was no reason to defend this location as there was nothing of value there. The water didn't look drinkable and the lake is pretty isolated from civilisation.
However we felt if we did have to defend this area, that to do it we would create a raft and stay in the middle of the lake, as we presumed the zombies couldn't swim.
But we chose not to defend the lake and moved on.Southampton Common Lake
was Marlands. This shopping centre would
provide plenty of supplies and good
defense against the zombies. We thought
about how we could lower the shutters on
the centre which would provide a good
barrier against the zombies. However we
ruled out Marlands because we decided
that we wanted to defend West Quay and
defending two shopping centres seemed
over the top.Marlands Shopping Centre
This was the last location on our list and we decided to defend it. We felt that it would be an excellent source of supllies including food and weapons. We also thought that it would be easy to defend because of the fact we could lower the shutters on the centre and keep the zombies outside.West Quay
While the town hall wasn't on our list of locations, we felt we should defend it because it is a key location. It houses the local government which would be very important to keep intact during the zombie apocalypse. We also felt that because of its proximity to West Quay that we would be able to defend both locations without too much trouble.Town Hall
To fight and defend against the Thriller zombies we decided that we must wear headphones at all times to block out the noise of the song. We also decided that while we are at risk of being infected from just seeing the zombies, it was more risky to not be able to see where we were going.
For weapons we would gather blunt objects like cricket bats and hockey sticks from a sports shop in West Quay. We would use these to hit the zombies around the head, exploiting their weakness.
If one of our teammates were to get infected, we agreed we would kill him or isolate him if we knew a cure existed.Fighting the Zombies
To travel between West Quay and the town hall, we thought the best idea would be to travel through the sewers. This way we could avoid the large amounts of zombies on the streets.
To protect ourselves in our locations, we felt that we should barricade the doors and play none Michael Jackson music over the intercoms. This would allow us to take our headphones off without the risk of hearing Thriller.Traveling and protection.
