Very Good. I really like the way that has three separate time zones. Immediately during / post outbereak, a few years after and then many years later, with slightly different rules for each.

You would therefore be able to play the entire timeline of WW-Z (the book) or Walking Dead Franchies as easily as Black Summer / Train to Busan. This is a hige convenience and lets you plan long term campaigns or plotlines for your little group of survivors.

The character generation is straightforad and easy to follow while the game mechanics are simple enough to not get in the way of fluid play while still givng the players a feeling that things are not 100% GM driven.

Throughly recommend.

Been a fan of Rycon ever since he uploaded his first videos of Fallout New Vegas and when Z Land popped up I had to watch and and I'm currently on my third viewing. Its inspired me to DM my own game so i ordered a copy and the condition of the book already exceeds my expectations with a wealth of information to apply to any scenario of choosing. The artwork is tasteful and appropriate for inspiration and im 100% satisfied and look forward to more content from Stormforge Productions

I'm a fan. Z-Land is different from most zombie rpgs in a couple of ways 1. It has a very detailed look at the infection and stages of zombies. From the newly infected but still alive are fast moving rage monsters ("28 Days Later") to the dead shambling traditional zombies and then spore producing bloated zombies all the way to the Unborn, mutant children of the newly infected ("The Girl with All the Gifts"). And 2. it has three distinct phases of the zombie apocalypse with detailed timelines of each, character creation for each, and what the survivors/zombies are up to from day one to 10 years, 15 to 100, and then the distant future.

Z-Land is not your typical zombie apocalypse. The infection is not some ambiguous virus left to the reader's imagination, it is a fully fleshed out contagion with a history and explanation of how exactly it takes over it's host in gritty and horifying detail. The sickness will take over your still-living body and force you to charge after and consume the nearest source of flesh, human or animal. The terror does not end when you die, this pathogen will bring back your corpse as shambling, rotting a marionette, and these are only a fraction of the horror that humanity will face in the years and decades after The Longest Night.

Z-Land has three separate eras, the first goes by a million names names: Z-day, the apocalypse, the day the world died. It will rip your character from their normal everyday life and throw them into a nightmare of survival. The second era is a decade and a half after that fatefull night, a time when everyone has given up the pipe-dream of returning the world to the way it was 15 years ago. The cities have been reclaimed, but by the most rutheless and horrific dregs of society who have remade them in their own twisted image. For those who still retain their freedom among the countryside, along the old roads, or even underground, there are pale terrors that haunt the night. The third era is 150 years later when there are none still alive who remember the way the world was. The heinous next stage in human evolution have conqured the broken concrete shells of humanity's cities, the last homo sapiens finding refuge in the forest, underground, or on the oceans. It is a world that none today would recognize, and it is up to you to find out if this is the start of humanity's resurgence, or the last gasp of a dying world.

The game uses the lean and mean Sigil System also used in Stormforge Productions' other game The Runed Age, modified and beefed up to include hunger, thirst, exhaustion, and everything else a post-apocalypse survivor needs to suffer.

What lines would you cross in the name of survival? How far are you willing to go to see the next sunrise? At the end of the day there is only one objective...

...don't get bit...

If you are looking for a system to play a Apocalyptic / Zombie type of world , this is the product you have been looking for. It has stripped down the verbose and confusing aspects of (AFMBE , Dead Reign , End of the World ETC ETC)

I have found running with this rule set has simplified running a game and feedback from players has been nothing but positive. The added bonus is having the content from the YouTube run game to see how it works in actions.

Looking forward to supplements and wish the designers nothing but good luck on this project going forward.
