Outbreak: Undead

Watermarked PDF

Awarded "Judges Choice!" at the 2011 ENnies!

When the ZOMBIES attack, will you have A PLAN?

"Outbreak: Undead" is a Zombie Survival Simulation RPG that is not only fun, but an essential step in surviving the Undead. We at Hunters Books have provided the most dramatic, effective, and above all realistic means in which to (safely) simulate the events of a zombie uprising and try your chances at survival!

Included in Outbreak: Undead, players will find:

• A simple and unique percentile based combat system.

• Everyday items that can be used as weapons! You'll soon find that
anything and everything can be used to destroy the undead.

• Endless scenario types, with the ability to form missions from any and all existing zombie lore and fan-fiction.

• Easy-to-use charts that can be used to customize outbreak scenarios for players of all levels of experience.

• Dynamic rule-sets, designed to turn the game into a simulation,
including realistic factors such as "Panic," "Pain," and "Empathy".

• Character templates for all survivor archetypes, such as firemen, military personnel, and civilians. Even the ability to PLAY YOURSELF as a character!

The core rulebook of Outbreak: Undead consists of a player's guide, a game-master's guide, and a zombie guide. Everything you need to play is contained in one place. The convenience of three books in one!

Outbreak:Undead(O:U) is purely wonderful. As a game system, it isn't just for short games, also you can play a whole zombie outbreak, sure if you can survive. You never get so powerful that you don't fear zombies, but you get powerful enough to survive [...]

My sons and I played "Outbreak: Undead" at GenCon2010 and had a great time. I am glad they came out with a pdf version of the rule book. PROS: An interesting rules system that is more a simulation then an RPG. C [...]

Write a review for Outbreak: Undead? Sure, give me 4 hours. Seriously though, this book is huge, and packed with crunch cover to cover. Don't let that scare you off though, because this book contains all of the player information you need, AND the DM [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
