Hi from Germany,

playing DotZ is always great fun whereas one element is the automatically generated story. Lots of things happen once the trouble for Farmingdale gets underway.

This game system also invites to modify it.
Starting with static elements, like the game board.
Adding more options, like more heroes, more adversaries, more events, more surprises.
It also works to modify the Sequence of Play to get much more activities and actions within a single turn. One way is having primary cases trigger secondary cases, and so on. Furthermore, including more game internal processes linked with each other, creates more challenges and suspense. One example for that is of course the Infection track. The current value influences quite a lot of other processes, mainly the Outbreak, of course.

The following story might provide some impressions what is possible with DotZ when you just go some steps further.

Enjoy.







































Cheers

this session report is totally cool and confusing at the same time.

obviously you found some ideas that enhanced the narrative aspect of the story! Would you mind to elaborate a bit your custom enhancements? What is it with all these hot chicks, firemarkers and path descriptions on the new cards?

Hi,

thanks for the questions.

The square shaped Fire markers are actually Chaos markers. I use the original triangular Chaos counters to indicate Killing Fields. Killing Zeds will - rather sooner than later - start a chain reaction increasing the challenge for the heroes.

Here are the 10 Secret Path cards and the rules how to use them.


Give it a try.


Cheers

Based on the final image, having boobs seems to be a prerequisite for surviving the initial stages of a zombie apocalypse.
