Outbreak!  (1st Ed.)

Outbreak! (1st Ed.)


The cheerleader, the criminal, the driver, the guard, the punk girl, the cage fighter and the child. Seven lucky survivors of the first day of the zombie apocalypse. As nightfall approaches, can they find some way to survive until dawn?

Outbreak is a scenario that is for between 3-7 players taking on the role of survivors in the first few hours after a zombie attack. Designed to be played over one or two sessions it has been 6d6's staple demonstration game for the last eighteen months and has been polished into a great introductory adventure for the 6d6 RPG.

What's In The PDF?

The 97 page (A5) PDF contains everything you would expect from an adventure - maps, details of key locations, background and monster stats - plus advice for the first time 6d6 Game Leader. The scenario starts slowly and simply, allowing everyone at the table to get accustomed to the the 6d6 RPG, and includes pointers on how the game mechanics work in each scene. The full text of Outbreak! is on 6d6 Online so you read before you buy.

As well as the scenario, there are 210 cards in PDF form for the characters, the equipment the characters can find and special zombie specific cards for the Game Leader. For ease and speed of printing the cards are formated 10 per A4 page and laid out to fit the Avery C32011 'print-your-own' business card range.

What Else Do I Need

All you need is knowledge of the 6d6 Core whcih can be read online and purchased on RPG Now. You will also need some six sided dice.

The Living Document, What Is That All About?

6d6 believe you should only have to buy a game once and not need to spend more money just because the publisher decides to release a new edition. After buying and registering any 6d6 product, we promise that no matter how many versions, editions and updates of the Outbreak! we do in the future, you will always be able to download the latest version.

Anything Else I Should Know?

6d6 is an open company. All our plans are discussed in public and our financial situation can be read about on our blog. We are building a company for long-term success which means we have to support and reward our writers. Instead of paying them royalties, we pay them one third of the sales price (excluding the reseller's cut). So whatever you pay for this PDF, after RPG Now take their 35% cut, two thirds cover the company's overhead and one third of that goes to the writer.

Any More Questions?

If you have any questions about 6d6, the core rules, Outbreak! or the business, or if you are interested in writing for 6d6, please just ask. We can be found on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

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.
