Hey Gang, I am new hear and thank you for having me. I am working on a set of WWWII rules and would like to share it's development with you as it gears up for playtesting. I will post an image once I figure out how to do that :)

Escape from Stalingrad Z is a Weird World War II historical fiction game designed for solo and coop game. If the escape from the hell fire of Stalingrad was not enough, now you have zombies to contend with. German and Soviet soldiers team up together to survive the apocalypse.
The game plays out over a set of linked Missions that form a Campaign. Each previous engagement in the Campaign will affect the start of the next. Set in the last months of the Stalingrad conflict, there are many factors to overcome if your troopers are to survive. Low ammunition, wounds, lack of food and the bitter cold are your enemies as much as your opponent. Each of your soldiers is a unique character with attributes and skills as well as a background story. The survival of your troops depends upon your ability to conserve resources and exploit your enemy's weaknesses. You will need to choose your battles wisely; sometimes stealth is more important than firepower.
The action occurs on a battlefield consisting of one or more terrain boards representing the ruined cityscape of Stalingrad. Map boards depict bombed out factories, rubble streets, destroyed homes and more. Each Mission will detail how to lay out the boards and what objectives are necessary to be victorious. The going will be tough and not all will survive.

Thanks for checking it out and all the best

Got you Narratio, I will link from my dropbox page and see how that works. Thanks for the heads up. link

Why does the undead soldier have two helmets? )))

And I also reflect on the activity of zombies in severe frost … A real corpse in the frost will already be an ice sculpture in a couple of hours. And decomposition does not threaten him until spring.
But this, of course, just a silly nit-picking)))
Most importantly – fun.

Hey Cuprum2,

thanks for the questions. I have removed the helmet from the final. This was the last change I made. Regarding the cold and zombification, I have developed how they were created from a scientific viewpoint, instead of supernatural. I am starting to write it down into lore and will release more info on it that will explain some of the things.

cheers.

Here is some lore that is being created. The link is of the letter with the image if you would like to check it out.

THE LOST FILES
of PROJECT RIESE

Characteristics of the
Zombie Infection

Dear TB,

It appears that there was some knowledge of the potential danger of the zombie infection before its surfacing in late 1942. New documents recovered from the Owl Mountains seem to indicate that the origin is not likely terrestrial, however it does appear to be some sort of living being. First thought to be a virus it has become evident, according to these documents recovered from Project Riese, that it is in fact fungal and parasitic in nature.

My train is arriving in Istanbul so I must cut this short but I will write to you soon with the other news I have uncovered.

Find attached a photo of experimentation on the common ant.

Yours truly,

L M Chargell
