So there is generally some disparity between fantasy zombies and pop zombies. A couple that come to mind is that fantasy zombies actually seem to be closer to the "original" in the sense that you have, basically, an undead servant--whether it goes mad or not is up in the air. Frequently, these undead servants are not able to "spread" their zombie-ness. Now, there are other types of undead aplenty that do, for instance ghouls. In fact, I would say that ghouls = pop zombies in general. Also, "ghoul rot" = "zombie fever". Anyway, I've allowed myself to be side-tracked. 1) How do you handle zombies or undead servants in your worlds? I go both ways. I have "tame" zombies, which are basically golems in the sense that they are mindless and do the bidding of their master. But I also have "wild" zombies that live out in the, wait for it...wild. Depending on the nature of the zombies in that region, they are able to spread their disease and it may be more or less virulent. Although magickal healing and sometimes just some TLC can avoid death and subsequent reanimation. One of my favorite treatments of undead servants gone wrong was in The Death Gate Cycle by Weis and Hickman. 2) What are some of your favorite treatments of undead?
