Zombies this Christmas? A free one-shot starter in a dark and nasty setting? Tokens, STLs and character sheets too?
Saril’s Dead Exit – The Warehouse is free to download.
You don’t need the rules, Dead Exit has everything you need to play, and the starter is really the opposite of what the title implies. It’s not about exitting. It’s about getting people into Saril.
The Commune sent your group to find a stash rumoured to be in the warehouse district. It should have been safer with the heavy rainfall, and you did get the stash, but that’s when everything went to hell! There was an explosion. A trap, or maybe just bad luck. The dead poured in and your group scattered. Escaping into the flooded utility tunnels, you splashed your way through the darkness with the echoes of the infected close behind you. Finally, you find a ladder to the surface, and the hatch opens without a fight…”
If you’re new to Saril there’s an intro video and the promise you can learn to play with just one page of rules.
Earlier this year, Saril had a run at Kickstarter, but life got in the way, and the project was cancelled.
Publisher Radiation Burn, Graham Stewart, said at the time;
The important thing for me is that it looks like my family will be fine, and the important thing for you is that despite everything, I’m not giving up, and the project will continue in some form. I clearly need to do some thinking in terms of how I present SARIL to people, because those who have had a chance to play it, love it, but I’ve clearly failed to show people via the Kickstarter what makes it worth their time. I know that is part of it as I’ve had several people saying they simply don’t believe what I’m offering is possible. Obviously it is possible and it’s been tested for 3 years, but getting that message across is something I haven’t managed to do.
