Traditional role-play gaming as pioneered by Kevin Siembieda and Palladium Books is an enduringly popular pastime, even in this era of computerized gaming. Combine the fun of fantasy roleplay with the popularity of zombies and you have "Dead Reign" which has been written and designed by roleplay expert Siembieda with the assistance of Josh Hilden and Joshua Sanford. Civilization has ended as we know it with the emergence of the undead. There is no government, no army, no television or internet. The cities have gone dark and zombies are everywhere. "Dead Reign" players are provided with a complete gaming universe that includes six apocalyptic character classes; sen types of zombies (plus the Half-Living); background information on zombies, 'Death Cults', random tables, a wealth of adventure ideas, all combining to make a complete role-playing game that will provide hours (and even days) of non-repetitious gaming fun. Enhanced with occasional black-and-white illustrations and 'Quick Find Tables', "Dead Reign" is a welcome addition to personal role-play gaming collections. Also very highly recommended from Palladium Books are "Beyond The Supernatural" and "Nightbane" dark fantasy role play games.
