The Virus, with unknown origins, which we call the Necroticanimus Virus, lies dormant in its' victims brains until the moment of death. It acts as a re-animator, causing the dead to rise as zombies, hungering for living flesh. Undead abominations. As far as we can tell, everyone in the world is already infected...
Sometimes... the Virus takes effect and activates before death! Rare cases exist where living people display amazing and grotesque abilities beyond human and zombie capability. They have been dubbed "Ghouls" by the media...
But that is a rare case, which even less is known about than the actual undead themselves. The only thing we do know is that you don't want to meet a ghoul face to face and be unprepared to fight!
... So, as some of you may know by now, I have been working on modern day zombie apocalypse based survival horror LARP for some time now. It's not really a "Lost Zombies" game but... Well, the Necroticanimus Virus's initial rulebook is done and play testing has been completed. If anyone is interested in playing let me know. We don't have a web page set up yet, but will be working on it in the future, so for the time being I will email a set of the initial rules to anyone who inquires (Necroticanimus@yahoo.com).
This Larp game is being designed as a book that will eventually be carried and sold in major bookstores everywhere, so this initial rulebook is only maybe 25% of what the final content will contain. The game will be able to be run by anyone who has a copy, and has a few friends to play with them, much like any roleplaying game that is out there nowadays.
The rules are quite simple, to appeal to a large audience, and game play is oriented a lot on combat and PVP, with role play taking a slightly further back seat, and thus character death is a lot more prominent, which is awesome because when your character dies you immediately take on a zombie character until that second character is finally put down.
Combat is heavy with simple boffer weapons (Google that if you don't know what they are), and modded and painted nerf guns.
Game sessions can involve survivor style games (40 people playing, each on a team of 4; 36 zombies versus 4 survivors, each team gets a turn), heavy fire-arms (Think lazer tag or paintball style) game play, mission objective style games or something else such as a campaign for either human or zombie characters.
Regardless, if you've ever seen it in a zombie movie or video game, or read it in a zombie novel (And lots of other things you've never thought of) it can happen here. Shoot me an email if you live in the South East Michigan area and are interested in knowing planned game sessions or just want to check out a copy of the rules...
a good ZPOC MMORPG! Dead Frontier is good and all but the lack of customization,overhead view,and crappy controls turned me off.
Something full character customization, more diversity the better!
Also full weapon customization and wide array of melee weapons!
As well as tons of body armors, clothing, and accessories included!
Free roaming, full customization, as well as parties allowed, as well as seeing the capability to fortify a vehicle or location would be fun!
Medics replace Cleric classes in general MMO's, revive and can heal teammates
Maybe a "Veteran" Class, something of a tank, a ex marine who uses heavy weapons and devices. Heavy body armor and slow but more of HP and physical resistance than other classes. Civilian Sharpshooter, or Sniper class, an average joe who hunts with a scoped bolt action rifle, replace long distance fighting seen in Archers or Rangers. Lightly armoured and relays on Precession and Critical Hits.
Including Clans, as well as maybe a Clan Fortress!!
Maybe a building where players can fortify and customize?!
PvP allowed as well as raids on other Clan Hideouts!!
you know i was thinking about this. on cod4 and mw2 some buddys of mine made a remake of nazi zombies it was fun but the maps were to small so now that red dead redempion is out and the maps are big as hell it would be cool to get a ass load of people together and make a rdr zombies game i play on the ps3 so if anyone is up for it add me and we can start working on the details my psn is COUNTRY_GAMER09
