The Walking Dead TV Cast

Once again another Extinction Event Game, around The Walking Dead. You can play an iconic character out of the Walking Dead or make your own, will you survive 5 hours  of  game play in this world.

I choose The Walking Dead world again as I had such fun GMing the last time, so it definitely time explore it again.

Timeframe: You play your character within the first few weeks of the outbreak, the world is already upside down. Government forces, either army or police have now disappeared and we are seeing banditry in it beginning stages, however there is still a lot of people helping out.

Scenario: Your group has been hiking in the wilderness and just emerged into a new world, how will they cope. What path will they follow, are they the good Samaritan or have they already devolved into group first, everyone else must die.

If you not played Extinction Event and want to experience a fast paced, easy to learn system, that really put some grit into roleplaying then this is the perfect opportunity to test it out. Also if your a GM and looking for a new ruleset to get your teeth into and try something other then the typical sword and spells feel free to have some fun. Good news it is a free system as well

 

Except from last game:

A crazy woman runs toward the front of the pickup, Carl is bug eyed sitting on the front bench seat, as the woman raises her shotgun. This was supposed to be an easy rescue mission, roll up in the pick-up as the fire out the back of the property drew the ranchers away from the compound of prisoners. Abraham had been wounded and was out of the fight, Michonne was heading towards the gate supported by Daryl who was providing covering fire. Carl was left to mind the pickup. The trigger was squeezed in slow motion, the sparks of the shotgun ignite against the windshield, and Carl waited  for the hit. The wait turned into an eternity, she missed. How The Hell Did She Miss! Carl raised his revolver and fired one round into the woman head, she dropped dead.

Bookings

Bookings for this event are currently closed. Player bookings will open at 12:00 noon GMT on Friday September 21st.

    Any chance of avoiding an overlap with the other zombie apocalypse game?

    The minimum seats that someone can join with starts at 3. I don’t think you meant for us to find 2 other players before we could join.

    I’m only looking for 1 seat.

    Ack. I hit the booking button and saw it was set to 3 reservations. Yeah, might want to change that. So far it’s 2 of us, not 6. heh
    I’m up for this again. Always love these EE games, Ardem. I will think over some character ideas to see what I can come up with…..or pick a pregen if I draw a blank.
    As Dave mentioned, if this can be pushed off a few hours, not only will it allow you more sleep, but the start time will line up with the end time of Day 1 of All Flesh Must Be Eaten. Then you might find a few extra players hopping in from that?

      Hey guys posted you an email, there was a gap but the other zombie game moved to just in front of me, I believe, not much I can do I can only shift 1-2 hours forwards. But the time frames does not work outside that due to the early time frame for me.

    Maybe he the Flesh must be eaten can change his back one hour and mine forward 2 can that work?

    I tried to join last time, but couldn’t make it. Maybe I can join this time?

    Would love to have you onboard, please book to reserve your place.

    Yes if the AFMBE group can shift 1 hour earlier and you 2 hours later, that would be perfect for anyone wanting to catch both sessions. 🙂

    Of course I’m aiming for the PFS game that starts at 8pm GMT that Friday instead of AFMBE, so unless we can wrap it up in 4 hours, I’ll have to jump ship near the end…which I’m ok with. EE is worth it.

    Does anyone have any issue if I shift this 2 hours forward? If noone has any objections I will do this tommorrow.

    By “forward” you mean moving it 2 hours later from 10pm GMT to 12am?

  10. ardem
    March 23, 2016 at 09:03

    forward as in later.

  11. ardem

    Based on your request above.

    I’m good with whatever works for you and the group. 🙂

    Looks like I will need to drop from this one. The time no longer works for my schedule. 🙁
    Have at them, Skipper and friends, and I’ll catch the party next time around (at CON 9?)
    Ardem, if you’re interested in doing a 2-parter where you and I each GM so the other can have a chance to play, let me know. We can coordinate something for the Fall.

      I actually have a really kewl idea about this. So yeah we can get something hooked up

    Sorry to hear that, I did move it two hours forward as per your request was this not enough or did something else pop up. I could not go any longer as already I was eating into my niece birthday party.

    Not it isn’t that. Moving it had worked for a few reasons including my schedule and aligning it with the previous game of AFMBE so people from there could join.

    My schedule doesn’t work anymore, however, as I have things to attend to here that won’t allow me to pull an all-night game. And I know I can’t stay up all night, knock out RL responsibilities here the next day, and then still be in any shape to help run the PFS multi-table the following evening. Not that young anymore. :p

    From the sign-ups you got, it looks like the time slot works for folks and you’re set to go with a good group. I’ll just have to catch it again next time around. By then I should be back state-side and the time difference will be much more forgiving.

    Right, uhm… So, the thing is tomorrow/today, right? How will we be connecting exactly…? Do you just like, message us or email us or somethin with the connection details or something…? Or am I just blind and missing the really obvious connection details somewhere?

  17. ardem
    April 8, 2016 at 16:26

    Yes it is I had sent a couple of emails to your email account

    deathmaster98@rocketmail.com

    However if you have not received these, we will be starting at 9am AEST or 11pm UTC, as per the event says.

    We will be using Teamspeak and using the Teamspeak FG CON Server, teamspeak.fg-con.com.

    If you are unsure about details I will be on 2 hours before to help people. I will give the connection details tommorrow on the teamspeak server.

      Yeah, uhh… I didn’t get any emails, and also… 9 AM isn’t what it said on my end… I thought it was at 7 PM… ‘._.

      Date: Friday, April 8 2016
      Time: 19:00 – 00:00 (America/New_York) [Normally, 19:00 means 7 PM]

      Uhm… I’m not gonna be able to stay up that long, I’m sorry, but I need sleep… It’s 2:30 AM right now and I won’t be able to sleep and make it to this, and I won’t be able to stay up another 6 and a half hours, not even counting the seven it’ll take to play… The FG-Con website needs to be made to work correctly. ‘._. But that’s a whole other conversation for another time and place. Sorry, but I can’t make that timeslot. The rest of you have fun, I’m sorry.

        11pm UTC/GMT is 7pm New York time. So you were correct in your original thought.

        The game is scheduled for Friday night at 7pm EST which is 11pm UTC/GMT which is 9am Saturday morning Australian time…which is where Ardem is.

          …Oh. I was thinking “AEST… American eastern time”, neeeevermind then, I’m just retarded. I’ll be there. Ignore my previous comment.

            April 8, 2016 at 16:51

            …Also, the thing where it says it was posted at 16:something was throwing me off cause it says:

            “CthulhuHalo
            April 8, 2016 at 16:49”

            and up at the top it said 19, so I had three conflicting pieces of information. X_X

            No worries,

            the 16:48 was my time I sent it. The whole world clock thing is always hard to get your head around.

            Anyway I am sure you well asleep and about to get up in a couple of hours, I will see you tonight (your time)
