I've been helping question the prisoner. He's giving us a better picture of the war between the Rapture's Reapers cult & the Cannibal Gangs.

It's a strange combination of hi and lo tech, a style of warfare unlike any conflict the old, pre-zompocalypse America ever fought in...

There are no front lines--not in a traditional sense. The population, down 99% or so since the zombies rose, is too small to cover borders.

Instead, there are scattered forts and outposts here and there along natural barriers, like the Wisconsin River. Patrols run between them.

Most of the combat is skirmishing between patrols, with occasional raids when one side or the other thinks there's something worth taking.

It would all be kind of medieval, with zombies subbing for highwaymen, if not for the inclusion of weapons like long-range deer rifles.

With good camouflage and a strong defensive position, a few good shooters can keep all but large raiding parties at bay. #zompocalypse

The problem for the Cannibal Gangs is this: The Rapture's Reapers macabre use of trucked-in zombies as siege-breakers is grinding them down.

.@LuckySenior Booms in Clintonville? I didn't stick around when I was there last fall. Too many zombies. But noise didn't precede Zs here.
