Hide Yo’ Brains, Hide Yo’ Brainpans! – Book Review of Outbreak: Undead

In June of last year, my players asked me to run a zombie game for them. I adapted the Pathfinder rules to accomodate that kind if game and I was rewarded with three really good sessions of gaming. However, I felt like the game wasn’t sustainable, which is why it only lasted three sessions. What should have happened, had we wanted to continue with a zombie-themed game…

Maybe I’m amazed…

After 31 years of gaming, how am I still surprised by what players do? So as an interlude, and a way of play testing my game system, some of the players in my group agreed to let me teach them my system and run them through a small adventure. Being a little worn out on the fantasy genre, I decided to…

Like Zombies? Heard about Aruneus? The official Aruneus shop is open with T-shirts and a $5 off coupon

Zombies rise. Heroes die. You are what remains. The world was a large place. The four races, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, and Orcs coexisted with an uneasy peace, but at the least, they were able to share the land and survive. Empires were formed, lives created and destroyed, magic flourished and for a brief time, Humanity strove to master the globe. Then the undead scourge broke the world…
