macdobhran: Whoop Ass (Zombieland Rule #22)
If you do not live in a two-story house, the attic will be a less comfortable but equally secure substitute. Most can be secured by simply raising the retractable staircase or removing the temporary ladder. Zombies lack the cognitive ability to build a ladder of their own. If you stay quiet, they will not even know that an attic exists. Never use a basement as a shelter. Popular horror flicks have shown that, in a crunch, this subterranean chamber can protect the living from the dead. This is a dangerous fallacy. Burning, suffocating, or simply starving to death in basements have claimed hundreds of lives over the years.

Armor: Chain Mail


If worn from head to toe, this simpler form or armor actually does provide some protection from zombie bites. Teeth will be unable to penetrate its links. Its flexibility allows for greater movement and speed; its lack of a faceplate allows for greater visibility. Unlike solid plates it allows the skin to breathe and thereby cuts down on dehydration and overheating. Unless you have been training with this armor for years, your combat effectiveness is bound to be impaired. Its weight can still increase exhaustion. The pressure of a zombie bite may still be enough to crack bones or tear muscles within the armor. If you choose chain mail, make sure it is battle quality! Much of the the medieval or ancient armor produced today is for decoration or stage performance.
