Return of the Living Dead [Rotworld]

While transporting barrels of Trioxin 49 gas through the arizona desert to lukes base for storage, a military convoy gets caught in a monsoon. The driver isnt experienced in driving through monsoon conditions and ends up driving into a wash. One of the barrels comes loose and falls into the wash, to be washed away into the desert. Days later a old prospector named Cleetus “Cowboy” Wilkins comes across the barrel and decides to use it to make a BBQ which he would be able to sell. Once at his shack, he opens the barrel exposing himself to the trioxin gas and releases the contained animated corpse. The animated corpse attacks and kills cleetus  and shambles off into the night towards the sleepy town of nowhere,arizona.

How to work the characters into this adventure seed :
The pc’s are traveling across the united states on a greyhound bus and Nowhere is a schedualed stop – When the bus pulls into nowhere, the dead have taken over the town and the players have to find a way to escape the endless horde of the living dead.

    Grave Plots – The Thanksgiving edition

    Happy Thanksgiving, the reanimated dead post! Happy turkey day to all and to celebrate this season of the slaughter of tasty birds I would like to take a short journey into ROTWORLD with this week’s offering of zombie goodness (and a large sampling of cranberry jelly )
    House of the dead : a stage one outbreak is reported at the Cuesta campus in arizona  and the players are sent in to find and identify patient zero of the outbreak before the military sends a missile strike to cleanse the area.
    The Crazies :A truck carrying containers of trioxin 43d overturns spilling the contends of the containers into a local water reserve in the town of hamlet, north dakota.Those that drink from the tainted water suffer from trioxin poisoning go insane then die only to reanimate shortly afterwards. The players are a handful of people for whatever reason is immune to the trioxin poisoning or they didn’t drink the local water. They have two tasks
    (1) Survive the Zombie Horde
    (2) Find out the cause of the outbreak.

    It was bound to happen, with the countless slaughter of the innocent turkey that the spirits of the turkeys that were slain in the name of dinner would rise from the unknown looking to spread fear and gain what revenge they can in a short matter of time before they lose interest and move on…
    Weakness – unlike any other zombie, a called shot to the head will bring not down a zombie turkey. In order to kill a zombie turkey, a called shot to the wish bone is needed to bring down this foul creature.

    Grave Plots

    welcome to the first installment of graveplots, a weekly feature where we will post adventure ideas for Cryptworld and Rotworld. These ideas can come movie,tvs,my own warped imagination even a kick ass song can help create a plot for a game. 

    This week being the first installment I decided to go old school and post some of my favorite plots from games long gone.
    1. Suffer the Children – children in the sleepy hamlet of bethpage, NY are vanishing in the middle of the night – the only clue is a toy Doll is found in the bed of the missing child. 
    2. Fanboy – someone is going around committing horrid murders, the throats of the victims are slashed open and there is evidence that some of the blood has been drunk and always found nearby is a puddle of vomit mixed with blood. The murders are being committed by Terrance Joshua, a social outcast who is suffering  from a psychological enbalance – he believes himself to be a vampire 
    3. The Funhouse – The Pc’s are sent to investigate a carnival ride, where riders have claimed to have been attacked by the animatronic characters. The ride was once part of the famous jolly rogers playland located in levittown, NY. Before the closing of the funpark there was a hideous accident when a child who wanted to see what made the characters move left the ridecar he was in and went backstage, there he witnessed the ride attendent rape and murder a young woman. Found out, the attendent grabed the kid and threw him under the track where he got crushed to death by the next ride cart that passed overhim. The “accident” was the final straw, the owners of the park decommissioned the ride and sold it off to the Phelan traveling show, a small mom and pop carnival that traveled the east coast until 2013, where the owner of the carnival was found dead in the funhouse – cause of death was heart attack. Again the funhouse was sold, this time to a private collector named Kenneth Yee – who contacts the pc’s to investigate the funhouse as part of his reality series “Live undead” on the local public access.

    Next week, I will post some of my favorite PC’s from the old school chill days converted to Crypt World.
