While the world was recovering and rebuilding from the zombie apocalypse, one eccentric genius, Dr. Dieter Schmidt, was turning a Haitian island into a paradise for the wealthy and affluent. Word eventually spread out to the civilized world that Schmidt had mastered the technology of cybernetic control of the undead, turning them into the servants and labourers that keep his island paradise running. Now a team of journalists from Timely Magazine have come to the island to report on the amazing technological advances being made in the tropical paradise to the rest of the world. Unless...something goes wrong...
I figured that an island full of cybernetic zombie servants would need some sort of food source. They cant very well dine on human sacrifices of the scientists or wealthy vacationers, so the next logical step was having easy access to livestock. Since the zombies do all the other work on the island, why not the farm too?
The Island of Dr. Morose
The rising sun illuminated a dusty barnyard, complete with a big red barn. Several patches of dirt were penned off, creating separate barnyard areas for different animals. Cattle wandered about the barn and in some of the fenced areas. Around the barnyard there were a few grassy areas and trees that would be considered strange looking by the island’s populace; non-native species were made possible by the importation of rich topsoil. Like any farm, a large pile of manure sat next to the barn, composting in the open air. There was also a pig pen, where imported swine happily wallowed in the mud, offering some slight relief from the tropical heat. Zombies wandered around the barnyard, doing various farm chores and dumping pig slop into a feeding trough. One zombie wore farmer’s coveralls, leading a cow out of the barn with a rope bridle tied around its head.
