I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Looks like a good idea to give this one a pass, based the reviews of Outbreak: Undead at RPG.net:

    A host of editing and layout errors, and rules that seemed nigh unplayable. I’ve never seen the need to “kickstart” an RPG, other than to get print editions, but, then, why not sell the RPG and grow brand awareness first?

  • That article is an excellent one, and we actually did talk with the guy a bit further about his review. I encourage you to read our response, since many of the issues he presented in the review have been addressed even in the 2nd printing of the book (it’s now in it’s 4th). Also we have learned A LOT since our first publication and are excited to take what we’ve learned and apply it to our new products!
