Head Shot! Zombie Apocalypse Action Roleplaying
Posted By Flames On June 16, 2016 @ 10:49 am In Features | No Comments
This Cortex Plus ACTION ROLEPLAYING hack focuses on the Player Characters as a team of survivors, thrown together by circumstance and working together to make it in a world overrun by zombies of many different varieties. There are only three things they have to do: (1) scrounge for resources, (2) avoid antagonistic survivors that want to steal their stuff, and (3) when they inevitably run into a horde of zombies…go for a HEAD SHOT!
HEAD SHOT! is not a standalone game! It uses the ACTION ROLEPLAYING flavor of Cortex Plus, found on pages 116-154 of the Cortex Plus Hacker’s Guide .
In this hack, you’ll find:
– An introduction to the Zombie Apocalypse of your own creation!
– Full details on creating Player Characters (AKA “Survivors”).
– New and variant Attributes, Distinctions, Specialties, Signature Assets, and 37 new or modified Talents.
– New framing devices and mechanics for Missions that force the Survivors to brave the zombie hordes to scrounge up supplies, help other folks out, and otherwise put themselves in danger.
– The Viral Pool, a pool of difficulty dice that also feature mechanisms for generating random encounters and hazards!
– A huge variety of zombies, including 4 main types and 5 variants that you can mix and match, plus all the rules for creating zombies of varying mechanical complexity.
– Voodoo zombies, a completely different take on zombies both mechanically and story-wise.
– An entire chapter of antagonists (gangs, cults, psychopaths, bandits), environmental hazards, and wild animals that may threaten Survivors who are lucky enough to sneak past the zombie hordes.
– Tips for stealing these rules and ideas for other flavors of Cortex Plus, such as Dramatic and Heroic.
Are you ready to brave a world overrun by the walking dead?
