Extinction
"I shanked a zombie kid :thup:" –Miz

Everything seemed great just a few days ago. You were alive, you lived your day to day life, planning for the future and remembering the bad and good times in your past, but not anymore. Now you are only concerned about the here, the now, the present. Your running for your life, there is countless things around that can kill you now. Your friends, your family, everyone is nothing but mindless zombies.

There was an outbreak of an infection. People who were infected began to get distorted and change. They would morph, become creatures of nightmare and legend. Your vary sanity was at risk or being torn apart in this new world. Now you’re on the move, you want out of the city. But that’s not easy. Every turn there are new challenges waiting for you. Hopefully you can find more survivors and together you can get out of the city.

Though, not everyone wants to leave the city. There are groups settling in, building bases within the city, and just trying to live. They have supplies, and are reluctant to share, money has no value, if you want something, trade up or work for it.

Remember, nothing is impossible with dice. Just… Improbable.

Concept

I love DnD, its amazingly fun, and I love zombies. Who doesn’t love zombies? I came up with this idea of a game, the future is in ruins, and your survivors with hordes of zombies running around trying to kill you. Some might find things about the game confusing at first, but not be afraid, I am more than happy to help walk you through it, from start to finish! And I guarantee you, after a session or two you will have it all down pact! It becomes simple and amazingly fun!

You have a wide variety of skills, weapons, and defensive equipment to help fight off the zombie hordes, and all the skills are to help you survive! But Life is more than killing zombies, there are skills to help you do things like pick locks, save your ass in tight spots, or even help heal people with medical skills.

One of the more interesting things you will see is a Sanity Stat. Its simple, your sanity goes down if you witness and see lots of horrifying things. For example, if you see a zombie that’s been mutated beyond human recognition or watch someone torn to shreds, your sanity lowers. Once it’s run out your character goes insane. (This does not happen quickly or easily).

There is no ways for characters to be revived in this, when you die its permanent. Though, you should not be dying often, in fact, you will most likely be falling unconscious. (Which only lasts a few minutes usually). As well, when attacking you can aim at different body parts or just the target in general (This would generate a random body part to target) then you roll the dice to see if you hit them. The advantage to this is you can aim to shoot in the head (Which deals extra damage) or limbs (Which can disable that limb from any further use). It has great strategic value when facing opponents who use a dominant hand.

What To Do

Anything you could possibly want. You tell me what you want to try to do; I’ll tell you how to make it happen. The main advantage to having skills and dice rolling is that, just like in real life, you can’t do everything. And even with minimal skill with something, you can still perform amazing things.

Hell, I’m the one telling the story, but you are all the ones who will make it. Everything I tell you about the story, it’s told because you caused it. You looked into that cabinet to find the limbs. Really, you have control over the story more than I do. I’m just the guy sending zombies after you all in an attempt to kill you. That’s all.

If you are unsure if you would like it, just try it! See if you like it and if you want to continue or not. Nothing to loose is there?

What's Included

There is a wide variety of weapons, pistols, rifles, shot guns, heavy weapons (Rocket launchers, flame throwers), grenades/explosives, all types of melee weapons and even bows!

Ammunition is needed, but its not always just bullets! You can get ammunition for different things, hollow point, armor piercing, incendiary, long range, etc...

Armor is here, but you can wear two different gloves, or boots, there is helmets and body armor as well!

Modifications! Change your guns or armor. Add silencers, scopes, flash lights, or add in a chip to add a desired functionality!

Cybernetic Body Modifications! Yes, give your character cybernetic arms, legs, or add in a implant to your brain.

Items Include: Healing items and things to help ignore pain, drugs, cures to the infection, any anything else you could possibly want!

Addiction! You can just take drugs constantly, you will get addicted then have to go through withdrawal. But drugs often give you a boost to your skills!

Zombies! Lots of unique zombies to make things interesting.

Session Start at: TBA

There is only 3 requirements!
  • Have xFire: Through this program I can talk to you, and DM properly. If I did not speak, the game would progress far slower as my job involves lots of descriptions and explaining. Without this we would only get half as far a session (If that).
  • A program to roll dice (hundred of them, some on the web so there is no need to download): Simple. The game involves dice rolling. You roll dice for lots of things. If you want suggestions on good programs just ask me. Hell, if you happen to have the set of seven dice (4 sided, 6 sided, 8 sided, 10 sided x2, 12 sided, 20 sided) Then you can use those!
  • Enjoy it! It’s a game, treat it like one! Just remember if you are not their, you don’t get anything found or anything like that! So the more often you show up the more you get!
Any Questions at all, no matter what, just post or PM me. Or check out the Social Group!

Short Session today, but I enjoyed it. I found two antidotes (Which I needed because I am infected if you remember) and a bunch of other shit as usual.
As I am the only one who always takes risks and hordes everything he finds.

Ran into two zombies/creatures today, and I didn't get to Shank anything in the Head this session :(

    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:

    Pushed out a new Pokemon Walking algorithm build. With a new system in place, I'll probably start tackling triggers and NPCs,
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    Is it fucking hot everywhere?
  • Varine Varine:
    What's a pokemon walking algorithm?
  • jonas jonas:
    it's an engine for pokemon games that closely emulates the walking behavior of pokemon red/blue/yellow
  • jonas jonas:
    basically if you wanted to implement pokemon yellow from scratch, and you'd want it to feel as close as possible to the real thing, you'd start with that
  • Varine Varine:
    Like from the Gameboy games? I'm not at all familiar with Pokemon.
  • jonas jonas:
    yeah
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I only played the Pokemon games on the Gamecube and Wii and such not on the portables my kids had all those games but I never really played on the portables. Now that I think about maybe once sooooo long ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    That's about right. I'm just emulating that old-school RPG feel on the Game Boy system. If I had more free time, I would definitely want to add more things.
  • jonas jonas:
    I guess you folks were too old, but those games were our childhoods:p
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Well, I'm about to hit 30 this year, so I'm now officially old.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hey wait a minute!
  • The Helper The Helper:
