This is a great sourcebook for any post-apocalyptic setting, besides just Year of the Zombie.
The subject matter is VERY mature and handled as carefully as it needs to be.
Slavery is an issue often avoided in most campaigns be it fantasy, or Apocalyptic.
All too often people tend to gloss over the bad and horrible parts that were a reality in society where the strong could opress the weak.
I am glad to find a product that finally has the integrity to discuss and work with the very real possibility of slavery and slave communities as it pertains to a Role Playing Game setting.
I also found the information to be useful for fantasy RPGs where the commonality of slavery and slave owning/trading society is more likely.
What the non-humanoids don't kill they catch.
This book gives a good idea what human slave owners might do, but in most cases their so beastial it would not be hard to imagine an Orc or Goblin doing the same or worse to their captives.
In truth some of the groups presented here (the Douglas Farm in particular) are so despicably sickening you really wonder who the monster is between the Risers and the Fleshmongers.
<b>LIKED</b>: Good details and examinations of slave societies and slavery in general.
The flavor text is as usual for Tim Willard, quite frank and enjoyable to read.
I am additionally glad that Tim chose to present slaver groups at different points in the apocalypse to better tailor the encounters to a GM's specific needs as it pertains to his time frame.
The vehicle modifications and information alone is worth the price of the book and for anyone who's ever wanted to run a modern game with armor plated cars and guns, this product will give you definite ideas as to what can be accomplished.
<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Truthfully, I would have loved to see more slave communities, and slaver groups detailed in the book, but the ones presented are quite hideous and more than enough to keep your players busy in YotZ, in between surviving day to day life in the aftermath of the Zombie apocalypse.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
