    Your one of the many survivor's of the apocalypse, looking for the one route to the safe haven that was not touched by the raining of the radioactive nukes on that one fateful day. Of course, your not the only one looking for something. As you stick your head out the window, you see legions of the undead. They're looking for something too, your head.

    Introduction
    Alright, I still don't know what AAR means but that's not important (ok, a little important). You know, one of those games like Divine Intervention...aaaagh, you know where I'm getting at here. The premise of the game is quite simple. We're on a good size island, theres a city in the center of it, and you get to be your own unit! Oh, and you have to survive hoards of zombies that come at you, of course. Theres also a shop where you buy upgrades and stuff like that. Look below for details. This game is basically: Roll to Dodge + Civilization 4 + Zombies

    Game Rules
    Familiar with the "Roll to Dodge" forum game? If not, I'll explain: basically, each round, you will post with your action for that round (1 action per update). It can be anything from attack zombies over there, build a house, or even grow a forest. 1 action per update. A random number between 1-20 will be selected and will determine how your action turned out and what happened (A zombie spawned next to you? You made a lake?) higher numbers are better. Your goal is for your unit to stay alive (I'm controlling all units so you better give a good action!) and to protect the one city in the center. If the city is captured, it's game over for everybody. You start with 3 lives

    Promotions do not take up an action. And this is where I talk about the shop feature!

    The Shop
    The shop is where you go to buy unit promotion's and upgrades. Killing a zombie will earn you cash which you use to buy yourself an upgrade or some promotions. Think about this when buying promotions and upgrades. Naturally, most promotions and upgrades must be unlocked first (there is no Oromo upgrade in the first round, naturally)

    To Join
    Just say you want to join, and you get a unit that spawns in the city. Max 10 players allowed (including people who died) to keep things fair to those managing to survive. Oh, you can have a custom name if you wish. Late joiner's may not get the full 3 lives

    The Roll to Dodge Chart
    One more note
    Mosher's first post is not allowed to mention about the slow update for Choose your Own Adventure :D

    Alright, that's all. Let's survive. Feel free to ask for clarification on any of the rules.

    I know that thanks to -Ilu-.

    So, are these zombies from a mod or something, or are they just barbs?

    I'm basically using worldbuilder to pull this off since playing normally with 1 city surrounded by barbarians with only 4 units is kind of...hard.

    I put the shop in. It's found on post 3.

    We're not starting yet, maybe wait for a few more people. But here's the current map:


    Might want to try and grow a few forests :p

    Updated :D

    If you want, you can post your action for the next turnset now so when we start, your action will already be there and we won't have to wait for you :D

    For example, my action is to grow a forest 1N of Base Camp

    When the first update starts, a random number will be drawn for each action and will determine if it succeeded or failed.



    And...my action is to grow a forest 1N of Base Camp
