This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

[Zombies, Run!] Calling all Runner 5s!
« on: February 03, 2015, 11:45:16 AM »
Just curious if anyone here has been "playing" "Zombies, Run!"?

I started it about a year and a half ago. At first my runs were really more 'jog, walk, try not to puke, repeat..." but I stuck with it and now I'm running up to five miles at a stretch three times a week.

Not only is the storyline engaging, and the base building gameplay is amusing, but it's a damn fine way to get back into shape.

I guess it's sort of like a hybrid Solo LARP/exercise program/solo CRPG/Theater of the Mind's Eye kind of thing.

Also, there have been more than a few shout outs to D&D, the Cthulhu Mythos, and other such geeky offerings (indeed one 'mission' starts out going out to raid shops for batteries, tools, etc. but then your radio contact discovers an RPG shop in town, and sends you off to collect a bunch of "Demons & Darkness" books, miniatures, dice, etc.).

So, as I said up top, just curious if anyone else here is playing it. I just finished Season 2, and have started in on Season 3. Lots and lots of fun.
You people are idiots. I'm out of here.

I've never seen this before. Looks interesting. Once it's no longer freeze your face off cold here, I might give it a go. I could use some encouragement to get off my butt more often, and wrapping a game around that is probably one of the best ways to do it.
