Head Shot: Made Easy!

  • 7 Minor GMCs, 3 customized zombies, 4 Major GMCs of various weights!
  • 6 Animals, some harmful, some helpful, plus 3 Hazards that model dangerous locations!
  • Optional rules for baiting Survivors into a potential death trap!

Head Shot: Made Easy! is a Game Moderator's dream come true: dozens of pregenerated Game Moderator Characters (GMCs) of all types to populate your zombie apocalypse setting! From custom made zombies, generic minor GMCs, extras, and a few heavy-weight major GMCs that might control legions of fanatical scroungers -- or even voodoo-created zombies! -- this guide has something that can be used in every campaign. Plus, animals and hazardous locations round out the selection, showing you how to model a natural world that is nearly as deadly to the Survivors as a horde of zombies.

Compatible with Cortex Plus and Cortex Prime, you can use these GMCs, animals, and hazards as templates for any action-oriented, Cortex-powered scenario. Modern horror, espionage, and urban fantasy settings can all benefit from the rules and examples contained within.

This expansion could be useful as some kind of bestiary but lacking and the hazards page (yes 1 page) only list 3 example without explaining what a scene trait is or offering advice on how to introduce them. And the "optional bait" seems confusing at best. How does it differ from the usual D4 generates more Jinxes than usual?

Good points! The scene traits are a concept in the upcoming Cortex Prime rules, but is only vaguely mentioned in the Cortex Plus Hacker's Guide by way of Heroic; I think they originally appeared in expanded form in Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.

I'll work on adding some new hazards, explaining the scene traits and how to use them, and offer a lot more detail on the bait idea, as that was half-formed anyway.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'll reply back once the document is updated.

Rule System(s)
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.
