Gamer friends- would anyone be interested in an online sheeted/dice rpg game (system to be determined) featuring communist zombies invading a 1950s-ish town? Would likely be a weekly or bi-weekly session over IRC, possibly along with a journal or forum to play out things / track things between sessions. Characters would be human townsfolk of various types, everything from WWII vet to beatnik. Game would be cheesy fun in some aspects (Duck and Cover-- does it really work for zombies?), power level normal-ish human. Likely starting after the holidays.

Game blurb:
Welcome to Pleasantdale - A Pleasant Family Community

In the 1950s, in a pleasant little town in a pleasant little state in a pleasant little country, something sinister is lurking. The Red Menace! Communists may be in your community, hiding behind those white picket fences and shuttered windows of such normal looking houses. They could be anywhere.

Fortunately, you are prepared. Children in schools learn that all important skill– Duck and Cover. That will save you from any danger. There is a bomb shelter on practically every corner– and surely Dad's hard at work at one in your own backyard. If Atomic fallout should occur, you'll duck-and-cover with the best of them…. won't you?

But what if the commies have something other than the bomb up their insidious red sleeves? What if they're using that atomic energy to…. REANIMATE THE DEAD! Surely that's just fantasy– the stuff of those B-movies at the Drive-In, or an episode of Captain Mystery's Strange Theater on television.

Still… you can never be too careful. The red undead could be coming for YOU.

This sounds awesome, but I've never played a game like that, with dice and such. How does it work?!

Part of it will be a regular play-by-post game over LJ, and part of it will be a live chat adventure that takes place via IRC. The system we will be using is really easy to learn - we have some newbies to the system so it's not a problem if you haven't played before.

Basically you create a sheet for your character using the rules that gives their statistics in various areas, and strengths and weaknesses. The dice rolls help determine outcomes in combat and adventure type situations.

We'd love to have you with us! We're plotting out the game here in a facebook group - http://www.facebook.com/groups/pleasantdalerpg/ if you want to join us there, and the game information is going up on the wiki listed in my post up there (I'm still writing it, so all the information isn't in there as yet).
