A Moodle is an indicator of what emotional and physical effects your character is currently feeling, similar to status effects in role-playing games.

List of Moodles

Anxiety.gif Stress

The stress moodle will appear when the player is sick, surrounded by zombies or not smoking cigarettes for a while with the Smoker trait. Stress can be treated by smoking cigarettes, reading or writing literature items and creating distance from the zombies. This moodle often accompanies sickness for no smoking characters, indicating the player character's fear of infection or death. Stress reduce the damage done by your weapons (shaking hands...). Being stressed for a while start to increase unhappiness.
Anxious
"On Edge"
Agitated
"Nervous and Jumpy"
Stressed
"Sweaty Palms. Gnawing Fears."
Nervous Wreck
"Terrified"

Moodle bleeding.png Bleeding

The character is losing blood from an open wound, either from a bite or other injury. The severity of the bleeding dictates how quickly the character loses vitality. This moodle can be removed by applying bandages to bleeding body parts, or its have its health drain countered by being fed. Note that zombies can track the scent of blood.
Minor Bleeding
"Bandage required."

Slight bleeding from a minor wound. Slow health loss if left unchecked.

Bleeding
"Strength and speed reduced."

Bleeding from multiple wounds. moderate rate of health loss if left unchecked.

Severe Bleeding
"Strength and speed severely reduced."

Heavy bleeding from multiple serious wounds. serious rate of health loss if left unchecked. Fairly rare.

Massive Blood Loss
"Death imminent"

Massive bleeding that will lead to death unless dealt with immediately.

Moodle bored.png Bored

This moodle indicates that the character is bored from inactivity, and is triggered by standing idle for too long. This moodle can be removed by reading books, newspapers, and magazines; by writing in a journal; by killing zombies; and by spending time being active outdoors. As the moodle's intensity increases, so does the risk of becoming unhappy.
Getting Bored
"Occupy yourself, or seek entertainment"

The character is starting to get bored.

Bored
"In danger of becoming unhappy"

At this stage there's a risk of becoming unhappy, the player must find something to occupy with.

Very Bored
"High chance of becoming unhappy"

Higher chance of becoming unhappy, higher priority of seeking entertainment.

Extremely bored
"Very high chance of becoming unhappy"

The character is extremely bored, and the unhappy moodle is imminent.

Moodle cold.png Cold

The character has remained out in the rain long enough to contract a cold. While suffering from the cold the character will occasionally sneeze. Nearby zombies will come to the location you sneeze at. The sound can be dampened with tissues. To cure a cold, be sure to eat plenty in order to utilize the healing benefit that comes from being well-fed.
Runny nose
"Occasional sneezing"
The sniffles
"Prone to sneezing"
You have a cold
"Sneezing and Coughing. Speed and healing reduced."
You have a nasty cold
"Sneezing and Coughing. Speed and healing severely reduced."


Moodle drunk.png Drunk

The character has drunk alcohol and has become intoxicated. When drunk, the character will struggle to walk in a straight line, and accuracy is also diminished. This moodle will disappear over time, with sleep speeding up the process. With the light drinker perk, the player will immediately become "utterly shit-faced" with only half a bottle of whiskey.
A bit tipsy
"Downed some booze"
Inebriated
"Co-ordination slightly impaired."
Plastered
"Coordination impaired"
Utterly Shit-Faced
"Iss you an' me 'gainst the wurld. I love you. I LOVE YOU."

Moodle endurance.png Endurance

The character is tired from exerting themselves by running or attacking too much. Strength and speed diminish as the player becomes more exhausted. This can be undone by stopping and standing still to rest, by walking instead of running, or by sleeping or resting. Being encumbered, even slightly, can substantially increase the rate at which the player tires. The more exhausted the player is, the longer it will take for them to recover. If the character has the Athletic trait enabled, they will be able to run further without being exerted.
Moderate Exertion
"Take a break."
The character is becoming exhausted.
High Exertion
"Can barely run"
The character is exhausted.
Excessive Exertion
"Can barely walk"
The character is very exhausted. Usually happens after running a very far distance, when the character is very encumbered or when the character has swung his weapon repeatedly.
Exhausted
"Can barely move"
The character is extremely exhausted and will walk very slowly. Usually happens after running a very far distance, when the character is very encumbered or when he has swung his weapon repeatedly.
Note: The character will still be able to swing every weapon except the sledgehammer.

Moodle heavyLoad.png Heavy Load

The character is carrying too many items and is unable to move at their usual speed. This moodle can be removed by dropping items, placing them in containers, consuming food, or otherwise using up items to reduce weight. The total weight assumes you have no other positive or negative factors that affect strength, such as the Strong, Stout or Weak traits. As the moodle increases, the player will be unable to carry out further actions before becoming exhausted. Health loss from back injuries is currently not implemented to the game, however jumping from heights may end up fatal.
(Note: The numbers below are for a default, normal status with no Hunger, Thirsty, Injured or Sick moodle and no other positive/negative effects.)

Moodle hungry.png Hungry

This moodle represents the character's hunger state. A red background dictates that the character needs to eat food. A green background shows that the character is well fed. Being fed boosts strength and healing rate, depending on the amount of food consumed, while being hungry has the opposite effect (reducing strength and healing rate). Depending on your Hunger status, your Carrying Capacity will change.
