Human, but not human; dead, but not dead. Abandoning all civilised behaviour as they descend below the level of animals. The Arabic ghuls, the Wendigo of Algonquian myth, the draugar of Norse legend and, from Haiti, the zombi.

Stories about zombies are stories about humans. We project our fears onto them, fears about how fragile our civilisation might be and what would happen if everything that we love and everything that we think that we need was suddenly taken away.

SotC is a OGL role-playing game written by Evil Hat Productions and based on their FATE system. This supplement contains additional rules to tailor SotC to the zombie survival genre.

As well as the rules, this book also contains a history of the zombie survival genre of fiction (both in film and in literature) and an exploration of the genre's influence on today's society. It asks questions about what it means to be a human being - both as an individual and as part of society. This book should allow you, the GM, to create games where you and your players can explore these issues - and have fun while you're doing it.

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.
