Max_Writer Posted April 27, 2016 Report Share Posted April 27, 2016 I've started a game I named "Deadworld" (not realizing there is a comic by that same name) dealing with a zombie apocalypse (along with triffids and, soon, feral ghouls) using BRP. My players are heading across North Carolina from the mountains to the ocean in the hopes of hiding out on the outer banks. What I need are some casual encounters along the way to give the feel for the quickly degrading society of the United States circa June 2015 as the infrastructure of the country falls apart. The basic premise of the game was a meteor shower that dropped tens of thousands of infected meteorites on the planet. Each one dispersed, in a three-mile radius, an alien airborne pathogen that immediately killed everyone who breathed it in. The airborne disease died very shortly afterwards due to the toxins in the atmosphere, but the bugs in the dead bodies then mutated, bringing them, essentially, back to life. This bloodborne pathogen now tries to spread itself by biting living humans to create more hosts for itself. The thousands of meteors that fell also caused physical damage (knocking out buildings and electricity and the like) further leading to the collapse of ... well just about everything. Any ideas for short encounters - even something that could just be narrated as the players pass by - would be helpful. I'm looking for things to creep them out as they make their way cross country.
