So, there is a Walking Dead RPG on the way. Do we need specific rules for each IP? YOU KNOW a Last of Us RPG is on the way

Wouldn't one set with "pick your trope" be better? Like, fast or slow, different at night, how you get infected, etc.

It's brand recognition. They are hoping that the name sell copies.

But the answer for me is NO. Actually, I've been long done with the zombie trope…

Need? No. We also don't need another set of rules for X time period, or another manufacturer making Napoleonic French infantry. Commercially viable? That's another question. Apparently someone thinks so.

after the first season or so, it was a VERY dumb show. But it will sell to the numerous fan-persons who continued to think it was genius acting and survival skills. I used ot collect zombie rules as there was always a nice idea to steal, but those days are gone.

Feel a bit of "been there done that". Not sure how well this will go over. I loved Walking Dead but it dragged on and lost to many main characters and I lost interest years ago.

I'll take a pass as well. I believe I made it to about season 5 or so.

I'm more interested in the first year of zombies than the day to day survival after that. I really had high hopes for "Fear the Walking Dead", but was let down there as well.

Perhaps a zombie movie with a feeling like 1945 eastern front. Everyone knows the end is near, but they keep fighting anyway.

Not sure when rule sets were ever about ‘need.' They've always been about want.

I've always rooted for the zombies in the show… ;-)
(And can you play as a zombie character in the RPG…?)

I miss Otis.
