"Close Combat," Page 219 of the BRP book:
A short weapon-user being kept at bay may have to make a successful Dodge or parry roll to get into close combat with a long-weapon-user. If the attempt succeeds, he or she slips past the guard of the long weaponuser and is able to attack normally. If the Dodge or parry attempt fails, the short weapon-user is kept away from close combat for the remainder of the combat round and cannot attack.
"Zombie," Page 351 of the book:
Zombies never attempt to Dodge or Parry.
And mind you, pg. 219 says, "If the long-weapon-user wishes, he or she can keep one or more short weapon-users at bay."
So I'm envisioning the victory to zombie survival is walking out with a pole into a mob of 100 zombies and just spinning it around and suddenly you're a walking god.
