Like the Undead Need Help Being Evil… Or Do They?

Let’s be honest.  Media and popular culture have kind of ruined the undead for most of us.  Between Zombies vs. Strippers, Dracula 2000, and the whole damn Twilight thing, most of us would laugh at the undead if we saw one on the street.  The same might be said for the undead in roleplaying games; that is, as gamers, we’ve faced so many shambling hordes that we lose interest in fighting them in inverse proportion to their foot speed.  Where’s the fear?  Where’s the dread?  Where’s the brains?  (There’s a t-shirt for you.  Zombie Clara Peller?  Hilarious!)

That’s why those of you who like a good scare might want to consider some tips on putting the bite back into your undead monsters from Ameron over at Dungeon’s Master.  It certainly won’t solve the catastrophe that is ‘vampire Kristen Stewart,’ as apparently they revived her body but not her acting.  It will, however, give you a fresh perspective on how the undead can be fun again.
