Apocalypse Hal - Risky Business
Who knew all that business stuff they use at work could be useful in a zombie apocalypse.
So this needs a bit of explaining.
Subjective risks are based on the skills and experience you have while objective risks are those risks in your environment. Let's say you need to cross a zombie infested street. If there are only a couple of zombies, the objective risk is low but if there is a horde of them the objective risk increases dramatically. Now if you are a professionally trained hero your subjective risk is low because you have the skills and experience to deal with such dangerous situations. However if you are a clumsy asthmatic who is constantly getting your tie caught in the paper shredder, then chances are your subjective risk is very high.
You get the picture, skilled hero with just a few zombies to dodge, the overall risk is low. A hungry horde and someone with the speed of a sloth is a disaster waiting to happen.
By the way the "Excels", Reliable" and "Stupid" categories are based on the staff performance ratings we use at work. Okay, okay so we don't really use "Stupid" as a rating. Well, not when there is a chance of being overheard.
Bite off more than you can chew.
