It began the way so many disasters happen... Bored scientists. For some reason bored scientists think its a great deal of fun to inject hamsters with all kinds of things and see how radiation effects them. This time it was Ritalin, MSG, and a vein of influenza. The hamster seemed to be unaffected, but when physically examined, he bit the attending scientist. That scientist became the first zombie. For some reason animals seem to be unaffected, but still can be carriers of the disease. It spread like wildfire and soon took the world by storm. If this keeps up, the human race will be doomed...
First you need a CONCEPT. What did your character do before Z-Day? Is it male or female, and about how old? What's his/her name?
Second, you need to decide how important your PRIMARY ATTRIBUTES are. They are:
You will have 20 points to assign between these.
You have 4 SECONDARY ATTRIBUTES that are based on these primary ones. They are as follows:
These i will give you after you send me the basics of your character.
Next are QUALITIES. These are special things about your character that may help or hinder you. Here are some examples:
ACUTE SENSES, ADDICTION, ARTISTIC TALENT, ATTRACTIVENESS, CHARISMA, CONTACTS, FAST REACTION TIME, MULTIPLE IDENTITIES, OBSESSION, PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY, RESOURCES...
You can have up to 7 of these. Remember no one is perfect, so negative qualities are there too. and they can be fun to play. Be creative and flesh out your characters quirks.
Finally, you need to assign points to SKILLS. There are a number of skills to choose from. They are:
ACROBATICS, ACTING, BRAWLING, CHEATING, COMPUTERS, CRAFTING, DANCING, DEMOLITIONS, DISGUISE, DODGE, DRIVING/PILOTING, ELECTRONICS, FIREARMS, FIRST AID, GAMBLING, INTIMIDATION, LANGUAGE, SECURITY, MELEE/MARTIAL ARTS, OCCULT KNOWLEDGE, PICKPOCKET, INSTRUMENT, INVESTIGATION, RIDING, SEDUCTION, STEALTH, STREETWISE, SURVIVAL, TRACKING,UNCONVENTIONAL MEDICINE.
You have 35 points to distribute among these. You certainly don't need to put points in everything. Pick things that fit your concept. If you have other ideas for skills not listed please feel free to contact me. They might be included in another skill, but if not, we may be able to add it.
I will keep track of characters and will assign experience. I will have a random dice roller that will take into consideration your SKILLS and ATTRIBUTES if and when its needed. I hope everyone enjoys this. The game will start when i have some characters. I will announce it ahead of time.
You can send your character concepts to me Joe Deathwalker here at Brain-Donors. You can find my profile here.
Joe I have a quick question. Can we play a Zombie or would you prefer we all start our characters as humans? I can do either, I just figured I would ask. It's your game and as the ZA DM you call the shots!
id prefer starting as survivors, but i do have some plans in the works for postmortem playing! lol. hope you enjoy the game.
Ok count me in. I guess it takes a nerd to know a nerd LMAO!
i'm an old D&D fan. Sounds like fun.
