Wicked Ones: Undead Awakening


UNDEAD AWAKENING is an expansion for Wicked Onesan entirely new game built on the original's monstrous foundation. Not tied to a dungeon, you instead take on the role of powerful, rotting undead who raise an undead horde to terrorize the living and spread evil across the land. You play out horror movie moments, leaning into classic tropes as you terrorize your victims and play to find out what's brought your undead scourge against the land.

This game may not be suitable for those under 13 years old.

76 pages | 6×9″ Well-Bookmarked/Hyperlinked PDF (Softcover Coming Soon!) | Color Interior

➤ This is a full-game expansion for WICKED ONES: FREE EDITION or WICKED ONES: DELUXE EDITION, which are required to play this!


● The Undead Conquest: Leave the dungeon behind, waging war against humanity in this new game mode. Raid your enemies in an aggressive 4 - 6 session campaign arc and grow in power along three domains: Corruption, Horde, and Horror.
● Conquest phase: Zoom the game way out and focus on the overall ebb and flow of the war against humanity and the struggles along your domain fronts.
● Conquest moves: Take action as your PC during this zoomed out mode, choosing where you can make the most impact each conquest phase.
● Flexible Campaign Themes: Spread undeath across a broad range of settings that you choose and define, like an isolated fantasy town, a bustling modern metropolis, or a post apocalyptic wasteland. The mechanics flexibly handle these genre shifts. Three sandbox maps, covered below, are included in the new expanded content!
● The Candle: The awakening grows in power with time, but is also a race against it as you slowly rot away. The candle represents this struggle against time. As it finally burns out, the Final Conquest ensues and the fate of humanity is decided.
● 6 Undead callings: New undead archetypes, each with a list of unique abilities that focus on what makes that type of undead truly horrifying and fill the players' inspiration for gory ideas for their PCs.
● 3 Undead Impulses: Unlike normal monsters, the undead share the same impulses - they Hunger for flesh, get caught up in Reverie of their past lives, and can't help but Torment their enemies.
● 2 New Actions: Interaction with the undead in your charge is covered by Command, while Horrify is a measure of how well you can terrorize humanity.
● Anatomy & Secretions: Included alongside Gear & Supply, some undead just don't have items. These give you the choice to fill your gear spots with grotesque body parts and disgusting goo instead.
● Type: Each undead has different magical characteristics and themes apart from their necrotic nature, such as demonic, fungal, or otherworldly. They help theme your undead and give a bit more personality beyond just a bag of rotting meat - I mean, unless that's what you want to be. A PC's type also serves as a magic focus that you can Invoke spells of.
● Resurrection: Death is not the end! If destroyed, return as a simple looking for a brain to munch on to regain your true form or be ritually summoned back to unlife by your allies. Each time you are resurrected, you grow in strength - but more of your physical husk rots away.
● Cross-compatibility with Wicked Ones: Bring undead callings into a Wicked Ones dungeon or a monstrous calling can join the undead horde!
● The Hive (primal monster): An insidious undead amalgamation that inhabits and controls the minds of several different minions. You can jump to new hosts, taking on additional forms, and even combining hosts into a terrifying rampage form.
● Moonlit Kingdom (sandbox map): A Doom campaign pitting the undead hordes against the most typical of fantasy kingdoms - hamlets, villages, castles, and all!
● Anomaly Event (sandbox map): A Corruption campaign theme focusing on a ship illegally tethered to an asteroid, harvesting dangerous materials - and uncovering something ancient, horrible, and best left hidden.
● The Mall of the Future (sandbox map): A Madness campaign theme featuring a typical mall filled with all the stores you'd expect and points of interest in the suburbia around it.

Apologies. I hit some family health issues and the dates got pushed back quite a bit. I didn't want the physical books available here before the Kickstarter books were sent out, so I am waiting on long, grinding process. Check back in January, please.

The softcover POD will be submitted for printing later this week after some final typo corrections are made. I imagine it'll be available in... 3-4 weeks? I'll post here again to remind you when it's up.

This is cool and a fun expansion for Wicked Ones, but I noticed the conquest sheet has the same text for the first 2 horde abilities, but the detailed explanation in the book is different. Specifically Endless Wave and Adaptive Mutation.

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.
