Z-LAND Beta 5.0 released!

The new version of the Z-Land beta is now out and on its way to you!

It’s version 5.0 and it is a huge beta release. So much has changed since the wee days of 4.1.

We’ve changed how Opposed Rolls and Damage is done. No longer do you need to work out how far below your skill you rolled. Now as long as you rolled below your skill, whatever it says on the dice is the degree of success. For Opposed Rolls this means whoever rolled highest under their skill wins. Same with damage. If you roll a 30 and that’s under your skill, then you did 30 damage.

We’ve changed how Physical and Mental Grievous Wounds heal. They are no longer a 10 session sentence. Now Grievous Wounds will heal in game time until that limb is usable again. Got a bone fracture? Well then that’s 6-8 weeks of in game time before you’ll lose that -15 penalty. Similar with Grievous Mental Wounds. Now you will have to overcome the terrors in your mind by being exposed to whatever caused your Grievous Mental Wound before you’ll lose it.

We’ve added in damage classes for both melee and ranged weapons and changed the range bands of ranged weapons. Now it will matter whether you are carrying a knife or a wood axe with you in the apocalyptic wastelands.

We also now have an initiative/turn order system so you’re combat encounters will be more streamlined and more ordered without losing any narrative quality.

Exposure is now a thing, so you better make sure you’re never too hot or too cold or else you can get hypo/hyperthermia. That would be a sad way to go in a world of zombies.

Lastly we’ve given some new ways to gain EXP at the end of a session and it’s all through beating death. Avoided infection from a zombie bite? 1 EXP for you? Survived hypo/hyperthermia? Another EXP for you. Same with thirst, hunger and exhaustion. The more you survive the cold hands of death, the more EXP you will get.

Also we got a questionnaire for all of you that have read or played Z-LAND. It’s about the beta and it will help us make the beta even better than it is now. Please take a minute and help us help you help Z-LAND.

Lucky for you, we have three of our products in the sale, so click on one of the banners below to get your hands on them before the sale ends!

The Grand City of Middelburg is a vast metropolis that is home to over a million souls… and one hellish demon. This hellion stalks the shadows to prey on the lives of men and feast on their very terror. This ruin of a man has come into the city like a thief in the night and now seems to rule it through fear, yet noone has ever lain eyes upon it and lived. The string of murders left behind in its wake grows more gruesome and horrific as the days tick by and yet there seems to be no end to what this monstrosity has planned for this once serene city. Can you survive the Ruined Man’s machinations? Can you survive in a city that is tearing itself apart at the seams? Can you survive when all around you the people turn upon one another in paranoia and suspicion? Can you survive in the Ruined City?

Welcome back to the Grand City of Middelburg, a vast metropolis that is home to over a million souls… and one hellish demon. Once the most prosperous and bustling city on the continent’s east coast, it is now the haven of fear, distrust, grief and death. It has been six month since the hellion that stalks the night began its reign of terror, butchering its victims in the most cruel and inhuman ways, and the city bleeds like an injured doe. You have survived thus far in the Ruined City, but as your comrades leave this world through the Ruined Man’s mad machinations, you wonder for how long. The city has now become his and its citizens his fearful vassals. Can you survive the chaos all around you? Can you survive as brother turns upon brother in desperation and paranoia? Can you survive when friends betrays friend and parents murder their children for a scrap of food? Can you survive the Ruined People?

This is Z-Land where humanity is no longer the top of the food chain, where every day could be your last. Hunger, Thirst, Sleep and Exposure all wear down on you in a battle of attrition with the unstoppable Dead. Find the answer to the question “just how long would I survive” as you and your friends attempt to do just that. What makes Z-Land unique is we take the survival aspect of survival-horror very seriously. You will see your character weaken as sleep deprivation, hunger & thirst slowly whittle them down. But that is where the choice comes in, will you just take it? Or will you do anything & everything necessary to survive? How much of yourself can you retain in your battle to survive?
