Has anyone played this? I just got the core book the other day. I've been reading it over, and it seems like it's got some nifty ideas for a zombie-themed tabletop game, but I'm having some problems understanding some of the specifics.

The problem stems from the fact that it seems to be built around the "Unisystem," which I am not at all familiar with and the core book doesn't do a very good job explaining exactly how things work within said system.

Back to the the point, I can't figure out how to determine if a hit connects in zombie-on-human combat. Formulas are provided for zombie attack damage, and humans are provided with formulas for determining a hit with melee and ranged, but I swear I've flipped through the book a dozen times and I cannot find the formula for a zombie's chance to hit.

If anyone has played this before and can help me out, it would be appreciated.

samurai6966onI guess what I'm asking now, is what is the formula for a basic melee to hit for a zombie? Is it what I outlined above? The books is so vague on this...

I do like the idea of rolling that against the player's dodge, though.

materiaonThese were the stats I used for my zombies:

Str: 4 Dex: 1 Con: 2

Int: -2 Per: 1 Wil: 2

DP: 26 Speed: 2

Strength: Strong Like Bull

Attack: Bite D4 x2 (slashing); Grab D6

Weak Spot: Brain

Skill: Brawling 2, Dodge 2

Getting Around: Slow and Steady; Lunge (+2 Initiative)

Senses: Like the Dead

Sustenance: All Flesh Must Be Eaten

Intelligence: Dumb as Dead Wood

Spreading the Love: Special (Black Water)

Power: 12

Bitten Zombies

Str: 2 Dex: 2 Con: 3

Int: 1 Per: 2 Wil: 2

DP: 40 Speed: 4

Strength: Dead Joe Average

Attack: Bite D4 x2; Body Slam D6 x2

Skill: Climbing 2, Dodging 3

Weak Spot: Heart

Getting Around: Life-Like; Climbing; The Lunge (+2 Initiative)

Senses: Like the Living

Sustenance: Occasionally: All Flesh Must Be Eaten

Intelligence: Tool Use 1

Spreading the Love: Once Bitten

Power: 21

This zombie (Black Water zombie if I'm not mistaken), tried to grab Jack and he just dodged. I did grab and bite on separate turns so the player could get out easier. (Since one bite infected a person.)

samurai6966onYou've been a lot of help.

Thank you!
