comment How do I fix this plot hole?
Aliens: Bonus idea - it was tech / virus / disease / nano-bots from the crash site which caused the zombie outbreak in the first place.

comment How to manage character arguments / conflict?
Thanks for your comments everyone. What I've taken from this is that I was looking for a mechanical solution to something which doesn't need it. I have told my players that PvP "arguments" won't be resolved with rolls - the rolls are there for the cases where there isn't another person RP'ing the character! I've encouraged them to RP in character to get what their characters want and be prepared to compromise where it would make sense for their characters (ie: not to become too personally attached / entrenched in a position thier character might be argued out of etc.)

comment How to manage character arguments / conflict?
Thanks for your points, interesting stuff. As a new DM, while I've heard of much of what you talk about, social contracts etc. how to implement them I'm still learning. I also have 2/3 players who are new to ANY RPG, so there is going to be a bit of working-it-out-as-we-go as people grasp what's involved - myself included. Your point about how it serves the narrative is excellent and I guess that should be my focus. Allowing the guys to RP the argument / discussion is fine, railroading them down a Stats / rules based resolution seems restrictive.

comment Traps specifically for Smart characters
Isn't that the point? The illusion is actually the true solution, so the characters who make the "save" are actually then being tricked into taking the dangerous route?
