multi-player based. You can either be competing against fellow human survivors or fighting
as a single group against the undead horde. It is a turn based game, where two sides make alternative moves until the game ends. Each turn is divided into a small number of phases. Certain actions are only performed in certain phases of a turn.

Hi FWR  :D

You're doing a grand job.  I'll add the links to the index  page when you've finished as it's easier  if I make the effort to sit in front of  a proper computer to do that  ;)

Description
A tabletop game played with 28mm miniatures by one or more persons. The rules are not intended to be absolutely definitive but provide a general framework for the game which takes place in a ‘fast zombie’ environment similar to that found in the I Am Legend / 28 Days Later / Quarantine
sub-genre of zombie movies such that, technically speaking, the principal antagonists are ‘infected’ rather than ‘living dead’. Each player adopts the character(s) of individual(s) who thus far have avoided infection and their objective is to complete, and survive, a pre-determined mission, which might be to search for supplies or to search for vehicle keys, etc. The zombies do not require a dedicated player as their simplistic behaviour is determined by the game rules. For the survivors to be successful they need to support each other and balance searching quickly and widely against attracting the attention of zombies thereby drawing them into close contact.

Description
Nobody knows who pushed in the first one, who activated the Big Disaster, the end of a civilization. Some people say that nobody is responsible, that it is the machines which made this decision. Although it is there, it has been near a century since the heirs of this apocalypse tear what stays of the world.
 The American continent is the first place on earth which seems to glimpse the birth of nations. Indeed, although always in disagreement on numerous points, the human beings and the mutants were divided certain territories. Except some confrontations, a fragile cease-fire lasts since a few years. The main reason of such an agreement is that the threat of the infected, called also "zombies", could not be controlled without the coordination of both races.
 Although nobody wants to recognize it, the third nation is born, hidden in the dead lands: that of the machines. Hundreds of military and civil robots indeed migrated to this zone of North America, at first by small groups then by waves of individuals' tens eliminating all those who were on their road. This region infested with zombies is very too dangerous to send it a group of exploration to know what it takes place there, at least at the moment...
 The survivors

The surviving term, covers all the human beings whose DNA was not rather strongly altered to be considered as mutating and who wish to find one life close to that of their ancestors. Grouped in two states, him are not spared by the conflicts. They indeed share their lands with societies of cultistes and sometimes find themselves on the road of  nomads slave traders.

The Cultists

Cultists groups together around a common faith. There is numerous cult of which the size little to vary of a family unit in several hundred individuals. The biggest known cult is the one of Goldoh, The Big Golem. Named Goldoh is in fact a prototype of big Warrior robot of more than ten meters out of order from the earliest days of the Big Disaster.

The mutants

The first mutants were welcomed as a fate, then little by little families felt a certain shame to count these "anomalies" within them. Numerous mutant children were then given up in the desert. Being more resistant , most of these rejected survived and met in tribes. The nation mutants so began to be born. Mutants following generations showed themselves stronger still, this threat gave rise to a great war which came to an end only with the arrival of the infected on the West of the continent.

The slave traders

Been often afraid, rarely chased, the slave drivers think that only the law of the strongest deserves to be applied. They travel the New World in search of weaknesses to be submitted to the authority of those who have the power. Strangely, it is the mutants who reject categorically this practice.

The Robots

Shortly after the first bombs come down on the big cities of the World, the governments left drones and robots on all the fronts. It was a real massacre, servicemen or civilians, no distinction was made. While headquarters fell one after the other, more and more autonomous programs were transferred in his artificial fighters to assure the continuity of the missions. In these programs made hastily, were added computer viruses. Of this soup of bits, orders and of counter orders took out again nothing good for the whole humanity. Out of control, machines seemed to have their own purpose, for which the human beings were an obstacle. Today, they seem to get organized around an unknown entity in the heart of Dead Earth.
