I think the search probably needs to be higher. That is a pretty powerful ability. I love it!

---------------------------------------
Also, a "Night Club" location board wouldn't be a bad idea.

Meds > Fuel > Survivors > Weapons

Then you can have other characters that go with it (GoGo Dancer, Bartender, Woo Girl)

if you knew Jon like I do, you would have put that search value at a "6", I also think he needs to have "+2" health.

Lol. At first I thought he should have 4 HP but I wasn't sure if it'd make him OP.
Combined with Olivia Brown the Doctor, they'd make a strong duo.

On a bite result, I fall asleep instead of getting bitten, and lose an action die the next round.

I actually have me as a survivor in the expansion stuff I'm tinkering with.

I say

Occupation: Apocalypse Prepper
Ability: When traveling from a location with a zombie can take a wound to lead one zombie to a new location. This can cause a location to be overrun.
-----
Could be helpful as both a normal survivor or as the traitor.

You're new here.

The proper question would be, "is that a hardclaim?"

You'll have to visit the gaping maw of the 27 page thread over there *points*

No, that's not my characters ability, I'm WAYYYYY excited about it, and you guys probably won't guess it!

That's a hardclaim! Because I already know the ability! It'll tie into the new location included with the expansion, The Shipping Port.

Ability: If Kodiak and Colby are both at the Shipping Port, players are unable to search or take cards from it's search deck until the next round. No card effects can over rule this effect.

Crossroads card:

If a character moves during the player's turn without fuel and Jonny's character card is still in the survivor deck

As you sneak from building to building avoiding the zombie horde the ground suddenly gives way. You look around you to see a maze of tunnels. After what seems like hours you find an underground bunker door, and you decide to take a break in its relative safety.

Inside is a group of tired survivors overjoyed to see another human who isn't trying to kill them. After talking for a while the leader of the group JONNY admits they are out of food but he has an idea where some more supplies are:

Option 1)

Tell Jonny and his group about the colony, search the survivor deck for Jonny's card and add it to your following. Add 3 helpless survivors to the colony.

Option 2)

You tell the underground dwellers to be safe out there and Jonny offers you a map of safe routes in the local area to keep the bunkers location a secret from raiders. As you leave the bunker door is bolted closed and you hear the sound of digging as Jonny makes another route out of his safe house.

Remove Jonny from the survivor deck. This card is now an map equipped to the character who moved. The character holding this map gains the ability: Do not roll the exposure dice when moving.

As long as it doesn't involve you being naked. wow

I'm still a little concerned about you hardclaiming an objective of rolling around naked on our games...

It must be a clue!
Jon's ability is that he never lets food spoil or go to waste.

ANYWHERE: Once per round you may take as many food cards as you want that have been removed from the game and immediately play them to add food to the colony or if exiled add to your unused action dice. Food that has been used this way is double-removed from the game and cannot be used this way again.

Man, going through all that effort, you could just do that, and spend a weekend at my house playing the game, with the expansion stuff I am working on...

I applaud your motivation though!

Let's see. How about I give you a little nugget. Definitely a new Location. One mentioned in the base game several times.

Will the new location be compatible with the base game or just for the expansions main objectives/scenarios?

Will there be a maximum of only 6 locations per game or will all 7 (or more) locations be available per scenario?
