The cheerleader, the criminal, the driver, the guard, the punk girl, the cage fighter and the child. Seven lucky survivors of the first day of the zombie apocalypse. As nightfall approaches, can they find some way to survive until dawn?
Outbreak is a scenario that is for between 3-7 players taking on the role of survivors in the first few hours after a zombie attack. Designed to be played over one or two sessions it has been 6d6's staple demonstration game for the last eighteen months and has been polished into a great introductory adventure for the 6d6 RPG.

The Living Document, What Is That All About?
6d6 believe you should only have to buy a game once and not need to spend more money just because the publisher decides to release a new edition. After buying and registering any 6d6 product, we promise that no matter how many versions, editions and updates of the Outbreak! we do in the future, you will always be able to download the latest version.
Anything Else I Should Know?
6d6 is an open company. All our plans are discussed in public and our financial situation can be read about on our blog. We are building a company for long-term success which means we have to support and reward our writers. Instead of paying them royalties, we pay them one third of the sales price (excluding the reseller's cut). So whatever you pay for this PDF, after RPG Now take their 35% cut, two thirds cover the company's overhead and one third of that goes to the writer.
