About the project:
The Walking Dead has always been about characters facing impossible choices in an unforgiving world. In The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, you enter into the world of the dead and must face these choices head on. You can do this at any point in the timeline – encountering familiar faces and locations, or new ones – but the hardest choice will always be the same: Who are you going to be?
We have seen many stories set in The Walking Dead Universe – now it’s time to see yours.
In The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game you will play the part of individuals struggling to survive in the hostile and unforgiving world known from the TV series. The challenges you face are never trivial, and they can appear from just about anywhere – from the lack of essential supplies, from conflicts brewing within the group, from hidden construction flaws in your safe haven, or from an approaching herd of walkers hungering for your flesh and blood.
There are two ways to play the game – campaign mode and survival mode. In a campaign, the story is not predetermined – your goals and choices, and the result of your efforts while struggling to survive, create the storyline. Survival mode scenarios present you with a pre-determined and often acute problem – they put you right into a dramatic and dangerous situation that needs to be handled immediately. Also, survival mode scenarios often feature locations and characters from the TV series.
The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook features rules designed on the basis of Free League’s award-winning Year Zero Engine. It includes everything you need to create player characters, as well as the challenges those characters will face in the world of the dead.
