edit: yeah, I only ever saw Kaplan as Eddy, and I knew I was missing Jacob and I felt bad but oh well. Then after showing the mods after I finished it Eddy's like "You should put Jacob in as the pilot!" "Who's the pilot? There was a pilot?" "Yeah, when Jacob was wearing his goggles on Thursday. Why else would he be wearing his goggles?" "Because his goggles are cool and he likes wearing them?"
Yeah, so no Jacob and no pilot. Sorry guys. Can't be bothered fixing it.

This seems to me to be selling the mods short by a long way. They clearly put a lot of effort in this game to create an interesting and entertaining storyline, and I for one think that's worth some appreciation.

Ollie was trolling and Mitch bit back. I'm pretty sure he didn't mean it to be unappreciative in any way.

The story (I'm working on a diary of the week by madame mystique but I'll give you a quick run down as her diary is all from her perspective)

Professor Moriartium from the ANU was working on a pill to help people live longer. Sadly a couple of his students got hold of the pill and tried it, washing it down with a popular energy drink - revive. The combination of the two with stomach acid produced a poison that caused the release of certain hormones which triggered rage episodes and dietary intolerances and cravings.

The result of this was zombies. The poison was then produced by the body with the hormone, and anyone bitten by the zombies recieved the poison and became a zombie as well. There are few poisons that the body creates due to ingestion of a similar substance and this was one of them. The scientist, professor Moriartium, felt responsible and initially tried to work on a cure. Having had no previous experience of anything like this he started to wonder if previously reported "zombie cases" did indeed have a basis in chemistry. He contacted a visiting voodoo practitioner as voodoo is most often associated with pharmaceutical zombification.

Voodoo has a long history of using specific combinations of substances to create certain effects and have long used a less potent form of this poison to create zombies. A "voodoo queen" of New Orleans was visiting and believed that the poison might be able to be reduced to the lesser form common to her 'religion' and thus make zombie-hood non-transferable and the horde controllable by her. She met with the scientist multiple times so that they could determine the actual chemicals used to turn the zombies but they were working on different agendas and didn't trust each other so their work was hampered.

Meanwhile, the Kaplin Corporation heard about the outbreak and wanted a share. The kaplin corporation has some small munitions stake, but more importantly, supplies would become of great value to all those in the zone. Kaplin wanted to be the only supplier and believed in the zombie invasion a few extra deaths wouldn't be noticed so took out the small time competition in a very hostile takeover. Kaplin merely wished to maintain the status-quo as they were making a lot of money off the human survivors. Wiping out the zombies would have been negative for him, as that would have meant the quarantine would have been lifted and supplies could be gotten as normal.

In the end, both the zombie queen and the scientist fell victim to the zombies. However they had managed to concoct enough of a vaccine that their mental functions remained fully intact and they continued to work out the poison. The scientist succeeded in isolating it with the help of the voodoo queen's notes, and make an aerosol form of the poison that would infect any who breathed it in. She managed to cover canberra with it, and she and the voodoo queen snuck out disguised as normal humans and proceeded to deliver it to major population centres around the world. The voodoo queen still believes she may be able to control the horde, and will continue to work towards that.

Sadly in the end Kaplin sided with the zombies and was torn apart by them so much so that he did not even revive as a zombie. One of his victims however did emerge as a zombie in the end and in fact led the party that tore him apart as a belated vengeance.

I'm sorry it didn't come through clearer throughout the week.
