Against the Dead Expansion Pack I: Kicking and Screaming

Watermarked PDF

Kicking and Screaming is the first Expansion Pack for Against the Dead, the complete zombie role-playing game set in the modern world using an extensively modified version of the d20 Modern SRD. Kicking and Screaming presents three new character classes, one for each stage of Against the Dead.

In the Emergence Stage, when the dead are first beginning to rise, Kicking and Screaming presents the Starving Artist, a charismatic type who can use his or her artistic talents to develop abilities to survive the zombie menace and fight against it in a unique and creative way.

In the Ascendance Stage, when zombies are beginning to equal humans in numbers and civilization is crumbling, Kicking and Screaming presents a new type of character - the Revenant. Though undead like the zombie hordes that scourge the city streets, the Revenant retains intelligence and some humanity, thus allowing characters to use the strengths of zombies against them while exploring what it means to be human.

Finally, in the Apocalypse Stage, when the world is a zombie-plagued wasteland and civilization is long gone, Kicking and Screaming presents the Endgame Rook, a character that takes defense very seriously and can create fortresses that resist any assault of the undead horror.

In addition to three new classes, Kicking and Screaming presents new feats, equipment, and skill applications. Three new feat paths allow characters to develop ability sets across class lines such as the Combat Medic, who is a master of first aid, and the Wasteland Humanities buff, who can turn useless knowledge into the essence of survival.

For the GM, Kicking and Screaming presents a dozen new zombie threats including the disturbing and mystical Silent Screamer and the industrially produced Scorpion-frame Assault Walker, an undead tank that can overwhelm the defenses of any human survivors.

Use what you like, get inspired by the rest. Kicking and Screaming will help you take your Against the Dead game to the next level.

The dead are out there. Go get 'em!

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.
