Starve/stun timer: what should those be set at? stun at about 5 min? and starve...maybe 1 hour?
That is a good stun time, depending on how big the are is you might include some zombie respawn points.
The campus I play on is kinda small, I can walk across it in 10-12 minutes, and we have three zombie respawn points.
A great way to add some thrill and danger to a short game is to put some missions around respawn points. Glob those suck.
kill confirm: what i was thinking was use normal rules, players have I.D. when they get tagged zeds collect them. but maybe to confirm it, zombies would give the I.D. card to a moderator and the mod has a list that has all the codes so he can confirm it and check it off? i dont know, pretty silly idea but yeah. what do you guys think?
For such a small game I don't think player I.D. are necessary, unless you don't trust your players.
This would be a bit of logistical work. Our mods assign squads a team number and then they only have to track like 12 teams instead of 50 or so players. "Looks like team 3 was wiped out." "The survivor from team 3 merged with team 7." "Team 9 has completed 3 missions lists so far." "Team 5 did not make the intermission, looks like they are now zombies." That sort of thing. (A note on merging teams and missions lists, The larger team uses their current mission list and completion list, even if the smaller team only had more done. In the case of a team size tie then they get to pick which list to keep.)
Equipment: well, most of my highschool group people are not that into nerf (as in, dont even own a blaster). so what i was thinking, is me and the leaders could buy some nerf blasters (like a stryfe, roughcut. also like socks, darts and stuff like that. kinda like a pre-made HVZ kit) for players to buy from us with there own money (they would keep the blaster, they bought it) NOT paying to play HVZ, just paying for blaster to keep and use later for games. or should we (leaders and I) buy blasters and players could just rent em? and players pay ($5?) for darts. like i said, there not that into nerf. remember, iam just brain storming here, what do you guys think?
You could recommend everyone get a triad and some socks. If you were really planning on trying to outfit everyone I would just go with socks. If someone wants to use a blaster at HVZ let them buy one, Traids/Firestrikes are not very expensive. Once they see how much fun it is they will likely go get their own blasters for the next time everyone plays.
(Also don't let peeps use stock Stryfes, that is how they get a bad name, there is a tiny piece of plastic that needs to be removed for it to be reliable.)
