“Several weeks ago, the dead rose from their graves, hungering for human flesh. Those they infected died within hours—and all deceased victims returned within minutes as new zombies. The city fell to the undead in a matter of days, with the survivors ruthlessly hunted down by shambling hordes.

Those who escaped the initial viral outbreak went into hiding, banding together for safety. But with dwindling resources and no sign of outside help, the city is rapidly becoming a mausoleum. Worse still, there are rumors of new viral strains, zombies that have mutated into even more dangerous forms.

You are a small band of survivors, attempting to escape the city before it’s too late. But the journey is fraught with danger, and the odds are stacked heavily against you…”

Inspired by popular zombie movies and TV shows, Rotten Odds is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.
