This is not a game for superheroes or an "ex-special forces bad ass with an M60". This is not a game for a guy carrying around more ammo than he has body weight and a shotgun strapped to a shotgun because it would be cool. Nope, this is a story about average people surviving in a world where everyone wants to eat your face...
Welcome to Portland.
Known for micro-breweries and hipsters, Portland, Oregon started out as a little slice of Americana in the north-west of the United States. Too bad hipsters are notorious for contracting a zombifying form of rabies since they were zombies before it was cool. Players will be average students at the University of Portland, living their day to day lives as they try to survive the impossible. Players will have to scavenge for food and supplies while dodging the undead hoards that never really seem to thin out. Will the players choose to stay in the city where supplies are plentiful but danger is everywhere? Or will they decide to head to the woods where they will be safer but less likely to find what they need to survive? That's the question I pose to you as a player, amongst others.
To keep track of your supplies that you are carrying, I will have each player use http://innawoods.net/
to form their equipment sheet. I will also be keeping a list of supplies at your camp or in your vehicle if you are lucky enough to find one. You will only be required to keep track of your personal gear yourselves and the camp and vehicle list will be provided if asked. That is the only system I will be using as this is a story of survival, not killing every zombie you see.
If I see enough interest, I will be putting up a character sheet.
