Winter Fallout: A Starter Survival Game

Suggested Price $0.50

You are just a regular survivor, someone who had no idea about what was happening until that fateful Christmas Eve. Inside your apartment building in downtown Chicago you were simply sitting on the couch in the living room, sipping your favorite hot cocoa, watching It’s A Wonderful Life on some streaming service, and enjoying the singular glow of your illuminated Christmas tree. Through your windows, you could just make out the bustling city lights through the seasonal falling snow. It was a warm reminder of the season and the many people across the city who were celebrating various winter holidays with family or friends. Alone this year, you were making the best of the situation, treating yourself to a happy holiday all your own. However, it wasn’t going to be a happy holiday for anyone. The tree lights flickered, drawing your attention away from the TV. Glancing past the tree and out the window, you saw the snowfall increase. You’d never seen it come down in such heavy waves. The city seemed to blink on and off, and you couldn’t tell if it was just because the storm was blocking the lights or if there was some sort of power outage. You got your answer when It’s A Wonderful Life suddenly stopped streaming, followed by the screen going dark. It was quickly followed by all the lights in the building going dark. You sat there in pitch blackness for a moment, cradling your cup of cocoa and wondering what to do . . . when you started hearing the screaming from other floors of the building. This is how your apocalypse began.

Winter Fallout is a simple and fast horror survival roleplaying game for one player. It uses the Micro Chapbook RPG game system. It is a preview of the upcoming Premium Core Rulebook "The Chill of Death" but is also a complete game on its own.

Question regarding the Infection Level: You have to roll a D20 when your Infection Level is equal or higher than your MAX Willpower, and if said diceroll is higher than that Infection Level or a Nat 20, your Character dies and turns into a zombie. But if you go with the standard Character Creation Rules, the PC will always have more than 20 MAX Willpower, so the only chance of Infection is a Nat 20 roll. Am I missing something here, or do these rules seem a bit redundant?

You are correct. In this starter, the only way to have this is to roll a nat 20. There are additional rules for this in the ucpoming core.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the quick answer. Looking forward to your releases next year.

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.
