Roleplaying game The End of the World challenges you to survive the apocalypse as yourself, with your friends, in your hometown.
Chances are that if a zombie apocalypse happened, many of us would be wholly unprepared. Fantasy Flight Games' roleplaying game The End of the World is a set of four different horror situations where players' characters are themselves.
Many roleplaying games involve characters assuming roles such as dwarves or elves, but The End of the World uses your characteristics and skills to build a character based on yourself. Characters have the following characteristics: dexterity, vitality, logic, willpower, charisma, and empathy. Along with positive and negative detailed aspects of yourself, your character and your friends' characters will have to try to survive with the limited gear actually around you.
Survival isn't about shooting zombies in the face. Players will need to deal with scavenging for food, water, and medicine and find shelter, as well as surviving physical and mental traumas.
The End of the World is a set of four books -- Zombie Apocalypse, Wrath of the Gods, Alien Invasion, and Revolt of the Machines -- each with five unique scenarios inside relating to the book's theme.
The Zombie Apocalypse book is here, and the remaining End of the World books will be released at a later date. Fantasy Flight Games promises countless struggles.
Enter the end times with Zombie Apocalypse, the first book in The End of the World roleplaying line! The dead rise and stalk the earth, hungry for the flesh of the living. All that stands between a zombie and your brain are your skills, wits, and talents. Life as you know it is about to end, and one way or another, you’ll experience the apocalypse and make your way through the aftermath… if you can survive that long! If you’ve ever wondered how you’d cope with an endless onslaught of flesh-hungry undead, you can find out in Zombie Apocalypse.
This roleplaying game offers you the chance to play as yourself during the tumult of the apocalypse, using an elegant, narrative ruleset. Zombie Apocalypse contains five unique scenarios, each offering a different take on the rise of the undead. Each scenario also contains an apocalypse and a post-apocalypse, allowing you to survive the initial panic and make your way in life after the world's ending.
