I like the combining of genres and settings to produce something new. They had spies in the Renaissance times, each prince/ household against the others. I could see a campaign of spy vs spy set in Italy in the late 1300s. Go to Comment
I don't think it would skyrocket, as after a while people would realize that nobody comes back. I would think it was quarentined.

Culture: Drumming circles daily around an arena for their bravest brutes to slaughter their accepted foe, the zombie. Feasts of overcooked zombie flesh (to kill all of the zombie virus present). Wooden fortress that make this tribe in the far future look several millennium behind in technology. Instead of becoming a troublesome and unnatural foe that they seek to cure, this tribe has accepted that Zombies will continue to roam their land and, if the undead were to perish (be cured), this tribe would suffer as well.
