About the larp

Zombies have taken over the world and you feel like the last survivors. But you all come from different walks of life and one of those people that you collected has started sneezing. Is that a symptom?

And then there’s the radio, is it giving you information or is the broadcast more sinister?

Who can help you and will they even try? Are you trapped or safe?

Content Warnings: Larp may contain character death at the end.
There will be secret information contained within the game.
Mentions of pre game viruses and death of friends and family.
There could be arguments and players will be paranoid.

Ray Hodson: I tend to enjoy writing larps based on myth and legends. I’m an Egyptologist and have widely researched comparative mythology. I’m currently chair for the Consequences convention. I have written lots of 3-4 hour freeform larps and I’m currently writing a large weekend long game.
