Zombie RPG / D&D Style Game

For ZSDW: I've been in the zombie hype for awhile, (about a year ago,) and after finishing a couple of Zplans, I decide it would be fun to kill some zombies with dice and statistics. Alas, this is quite the beta, and it generally uses d6's, as well as some skewed grammar and stats. First things first. You are not a specified character. You have no character sheet, you have no special abilites. The following few paragraph will explain a few confusing things, and give hints on how your location will affect your game. Then, there will basic weapon stats. Later, there will be about how zombies affect you, and what kinds of zombies there are, and their health. You will also learn how you can scrounge for stuff from bodies.  Subdivide means to roll for what section it is applicable for. Say your about to go into a room, you would roll for SURVIVOR and ZACH Room check. Say you get a four(4). That means there is something in the room. You would then decide if it was locked. (Unnecessary, but for extra gameplay, most are going to be locked. Hit the lock with something, and roll for it's regular attack. If the attack is successful, you broke the lock. If not, well, you may have to literally blow up the door, or say that you cannot go into the room.) Let's say no lock for times sake. Now, you know something/someone is in there. Subdivide by rolling what it is. Second line of Survivor and Zach Room Check shows this. Luckily, you roll a one(1). That means a Military person is in the room. They can have Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, Rifles with Scoped subclass, And Scatterguns with the Breacher Barrel subclass. You can only find them in Military bases, Start Variable Location:Warzone, or ALERTNESS Yellow or higher. When moving through a house, roll for room encounters. You may roll for how many rooms you must go through,( If I roll 5, I need to go through 5 rooms before getting out, or to destination around/in house) so you must roll for encounters/room searches while in those rooms.(You would roll 5 times in this case for People and Zach Room check rolls.)  In a house, you may roll for RUN, so 1-2 success, and go to the next room. 4-6, unsuccessful, roll for Scratch. (1-3 Scratched, 4-6 safe.)   ALERTNESS is just a guide for what zombies are available to kill. The ALERTNESS bar is unnecessary; however it adds another angle to the game. It is at the back of this guide.  Ideas, Tips and Otherwise: Tanks, APCs, Pickups, convenience stores, Molotov Cocktail, Improvised weapons, have some fun, and add to this game! Make up some weapons, apply variable splash damage, and just make sure you kill some Zach!   Your start variables should be placed on a separate sheet, for reference. Say for location you picked rainforest/jungle, (your geography, weather, and season fits that description.) you will need/want to roll for Scratches more. (For realism, generally, there will be more crawlers, same with Aristriked Urban.) Same for Urban, and Airstriked-Urban, (Broken buildings, rubble, etc.) or Warzone. (More military personnel. Tanks? Have some fun! :)  START VARIABLES (At the top of the game sheet.) Location: Geography: Weather: Season: # Zach's: Zach's Location: Population Density: Specialized Setting: Attack Rolls: Locks (Y/N): Scratch (Y/N): Alertness Level (Y/N): Supplies (Y/N): Leg Break (Y/N): Travel Days (Y/N):   Supplies is a form of food, ammunition, and other necessary items for a single day. Each survivor in your current group takes 1 supply per day. Supplies can be found by subdividing if your preceding ROOM SEARCH roll is 1-2. If Travel Days is active/applicable, your group takes only 4 supplies per day, individual people in your group do not take any supplies, and you cannot be attacked by Z's. Travel Days are good if you have more than 4 people in your group, and have low health, or need to get somewhere. BITES are fatal, you take 3 supplies when bitten, then the following day you become a Z. Your group can take your weapons. SCRATCH'S are non-fatal; you take 2 supplies for 3 days. (7supplies, because of the one you took the day you were bitten, then the 6 you will take for the following days.) For all melee attacks, roll for bone breaks. 1-2 break, 3-5 Scratched, 6 safe. Scratch disables RANGED and FIREARMS attacks. For disabled, or failed melee attacks, 1-2 = arms, or arm, 3-4 =legs, or leg, 5-6 = chest or neck break. A Neck Break Disable turns Zach melee attacks to 2 bitten, 1 and 3 scratched, 4-6 safe. Arms/Legs breaks decreases that zombies fighting ability to 2 bitten, 1 and 3 scratched, 4-5 safe, 6 breaks leg of human.  When a human has a leg broken, he/she takes two supplies per day, and halves the amount of current PTD. (Play Time per Day)   To determine the time a day takes to complete, roll for the PTD, or Play Time per Day. This is found by rolling a 6 sided dice, then multiplying the number on the dice by 3. This is approximately how long a "day" is in the ZRPG, in minutes. You will need a watch or timer to play this game, if you want to apply PTD.  FIREARMS Scattergun(Shotgun) = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss, Melee 1-4 hit, 5-6 disabled. RANGE:3 This affects a maximum of 3 Zs. Roll for 1-2 1 Zach affected, 3-4 2 Zach affected, 5-6 3 Zach affected. Sub-Class: Breacher Barrel, 1-2 hit, instant death upon Z's, breaches locked doors/drywall (Apartments, this happens if you like to shoot stuff, or the lock you just suck at opening wont unlock,). Pistol = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. RANGE: 4 Melee 1-3 hit, 4-6 failed, if failed, roll for scratches, Z is disabled if successful hit. Subdivide for disable type. RANGE: 1 Sub-Class: Laser, 1-5 hit, 6 miss. RANGE: 5 Rifle = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. RANGE: 10 Melee 1-2 hit, instant kill, 3-5 disabled, 6 scratched. RANGE: 2 Sub-Class: Sighting-Laser, 1-4 hit, 5 miss, 6 disable. RANGE: 12.  Bayonet, see knife attack roll. Scope, 1-9 successful on 12 sided die. RANGE: 16 Assault Rifle = 1-4 hit, 5 miss, 6 instant kill or disable, you pick. RANGE: 14 Sub-Class: Grenade Launcher, 1-4, instant 4 Z's kill, when applicable. 5-6 miss Blows open walls/doors, when you fail  assault rifle as a prerequisite to use a grenade launcher. Sub-Machine gun: 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Has a three round burst, you can hit a Z 3 times, or 3 Z’s 1 time each, or any combination thereof. Sub-Class:   BLUNTS Crowbar = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Sub-Class: N/A 2x4 = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Sub-Class: Additional Spike/Nail 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss, roll for instant kill, or instant disable. Sheet Metal Tipped, instant disable 1-4, 5-6 miss. Bat = 2-5 hit, 1 and 6 miss. Sub-Class:Aluminum Bat, 1-3 and 6 hit, 4 bat bends (You cannot use the bat anymore)                                        5 miss, instant disable if hit is successful.                    Steel Bat 2-5 hit, 1 and 6 miss, instant kill if hit is true. Sledgehammer = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss, roll for Scratch if hit is false, insant disable/kill, subdivide for odd/even. You cannot attack next round, but you can use a secondary. Sub-Class: Industrial size, 1-5 hit, 6 miss, instant kill, Scratch if miss. You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again.   SHARPS Axe = 1-2 hit, 3-6 miss, instant kill. You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again. Sub-Class:Double Sided axe, 1-3 hit, kills 2 Z's. You may use this twice on your turn, You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again. Hatchet = Melee, 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss, Thrown, 1-2 hit, 3-6 miss, if hit, roll = 1-3, disabled, 4-6 instant kill Sword = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss.

Sub-Class: Improvised weapon w/ rifle. 1-4 instant kill,  5-6 disable.   RANGED Bow and Arrow =1-3 hit, 5-4 disabled, 6 miss. Sub-Class: Bomb Arrows,1-4 instant death.

Sub-Class:Alcohol Bomb, 1-6 hit, no misses. 2 Alcohol Bombs kill a Z, 2 days. Starts building fire.   Room Search Rolls: WEAPON SEARCH: 1 = FIREARMS, Subdivide for type, pistols and scatters only 2-4 = SHARP, 5 = BLUNT,  6 = RANGED, no Crossbows/Archers Bow. ITEM SEARCH: 1-2 = Supplies, when applicable. This is probably CVS's Walgreens, SURVIVOR and ZACH ROOM CHECK: For a room check, use a d20.  1-4 Z-Encounter, 6-9 survivor, 10-15 nothing, 16-20 supplies. If you roll 16-20, roll a d6. You gain supplies equal to the number on the d6. For a zombie encounter, roll a d6 for number of Z's   AWARENESS LEVELS L. Green = Near None                                   Civilian Known Only Green = Slight                                                  Civilian Known Only, possible Police help. D. Green = LOW                                              Slight Media Coverup,                  L.Yellow = Less than medium                     More Media, Local Police Intervention Yellow = MEDIUM                                         Full Media, Government Denying D.

Normal Zachs, and Fat Zachs are found everywhere.   If you miss while attacking a Z, subdivide if they hit you. If you are hit by a Z, you become one in 1 day.

This one isn't to different except its has a sliding trigger that is a lot more strong than the previous one. I basically made this to get rid of the trigger mech on the top which I think is pretty ugly, anyways hope you enjoy!

Violin tuning issue: Don't know how to tune D string Answered

I know how to tune everything but the D string. I keep going up and down with the fine tuning, but to no avail. Here's what I've got: -Violin is made in China, but it's somehow better and lasted longer than most violins here in the PH (Philippines) -I have a pitch pipe to assist in tuning, but when I hit D, it's somehow muffled (in a way) and I can't hear it clearly, so I can't differentiate between what I'm playing on D at the moment, and the pitch pipe output.

Hey, All! I'm Relocating! :D

A select few of you who stalk me visit my persona often may have noticed that I changed my location. Well, the reason for that is that my family is on the move again.When I joined Instructables in 4th Quarter 2006, I lived in Texas. Soon after that, we moved to Georgia and now we're off to Florida, from whence I hail.The house we'll be moving into is by far the greatest I've yet to live on. It's situated on a canal that leads out to the Atlantic, it has a pool, two stories, a second master bedroom that I get to share with my brother, and it just looks really cool. Built in the 60's, this house has some serious personality.With every move comes a new school. Mom wants to send me to a Catholic school again (ugh). At least this time it's co-ed, but it still doesn't have a marching band, which is the #1 reason why I prefer a public education.Well, guys, don't freak out if I go MIA over the next few weeks; moving's a contact sport and there's a lot involved if you're not familiar with the process (Eric knows what I mean, don't you? ;-) Dad wants to leave by Friday, and we just starting packing yesterday, so wish us luck. See you all later!

Multiple Speaker Building Questions! :D

Hey guys, first post here, so be kind, I suppose. :PI'm building a set of speakers, loosely based off of the super loud, super long lasting speakers instructable (found here https://www.instructables.com/id/super-portable-super-loud-long-lasting-battery-/ ) I wanted to take these, and make them significantly better.First of all, I was going to substitute in car speakers. The upside of that is that I also get bass without having to go out and buy woofers and wire up a crossover. I've been looking around on partsexpress, and it seems like most have an impedence of 4 ohms, and range from 75 to 150 RMS. I'm aware that the general rule of thumb is that you double the RMS for the amplifier. However, I'm not sure about soe of the other parts. Should the speakers be wired in series or parallel? If they're wired in parallel, should I be looking for an amp with 2 ohms of resistance, since it's two speakers at 4 ohms? If not, can speakers be easily wired in series?Next question, batteries. Where in the hell do I get some good LiPo batteries? I know this thing is going to go through electricity like candy, so I want high wattage and high capacity.The wattage brings me to my last question. These speakers are rated for a maximum input of 70 watts or more. I can't get a battery to go anywhere near that capacity. Will the speakers be harmed by a lower wattage supply? Significantly lower, I might add, most probably not more than twelve, even if I array the batteries into my own pack. How will that affect the speakers?Sorry, one last; concerning the rule of thumb in which you should double the voltage of the speakers RMS for your amp, if I can't find an amp that does that exactly, should I have my amp be slightly overpowered, or slightly underpowered?Thanks for all the help on this one :)

My Chemical Romance Update =D

My Chemical Romance will go on a temporary break while they seek inspiration to write a new album."We can't make any more music unless we live. When we get a chance, we're going to get together and do some demos and start rolling. But we're going to take it slow,” frontman Gerard Way said.The band took two years to tour in support of their last album, 2006’s The Black Parade. {Posted from The Star}Things have been a little quiet since My Chemical Romance killed off their alter egos, The Black Parade, back in may at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden venue. However frontman Gerard Way has posted a massssiiiivvvveeee update answering all your questions about the new album, how drummer Bob Bryer is after recent wrist surgery, how guitarist Ray Toro's wedding went, what Frank Iero's been up to with his side-band, Leathermouth, as well as quashing internet rumours that he recently died in a car crash.It reads as follows:"Hey guys, Gerard here... I'm hanging out with Mikey in New Jersey, relaxing, drinking coffee, talking comics, and getting ready to take a drive down south tomorrow. I don't know what states I'm passing through but I know where I'm heading. Don't worry, I've got a the Clockwork Orange audiobook, a Dr. Pepper air-freshener, and a GPS so I don't get lost. We figured by now everyone that's a fan of the band might be wondering what we're up to, what we're planning, so I thought I'd write this letter and fill you all in."We're living, decompressing - The Black Parade took over two years to tour and six months to make so that's a lot of existing in a fictional world, and we're just extremely happy to live in a real one for a while. One thing I can let you know is that we're excited. Genuinely more excited than we have ever been to be in this band, make some new music. And we have ALL been writing new material in our own separate worlds... I started a week after I got home, buying a good rig, an old Jag, and a bunch of pedals- just searching for the next sound."Bob is recovering well from his recent wrist surgery - exceedingly well considering how risky the procedure can be. We're all really happy that when he picks up the sticks again he won't be in the intense pain he was in during the last year of touring. It's going to take him a while to rehabilitate but knowing him, he will most likely be playing the drums before the doctor says it's a good idea. He just loves playing, we all do. Franks on the road with Leathermouth and Reggie and The Full Effect so you should go see them and get spit on. I know Leathermouth doesn't have a record out yet, but Frank gave it to me in Mexico and I can easily say it's my favourite post-hardcore record of the year, so I know you will at least enjoy the songs if you don't know the words."One of the best parts of the last five months was getting to see Ray get married and all of us be a part of the wedding. It was beautiful. I'm not sure where the happy couple is right now but I am sure wherever they are, they are really enjoying it. I have never seen him happier in my life. So we made plans to get together soon and make some demos, see where our heads are at, take it slow. If explosions happen in our heads right away who knows how soon we could have a record out, we aren't in any rush but we get just as anxious as you to find out what the next 'thing' is going to be."So that about wraps it up... I'm glad I could stop by for a chat, I think I will do it more often. I'm writing more comics, writing more music, and missing my wife right now. Oh, and I heard a rumour that I died in a car accident. I didn't."[{Posted from Kerrang!}]

The Instructables Knex Tournament - with Prizes! :D

The Knex TournamentI am NO knexer. At all (I lie, I have a Knex pocket turret I designed sitting next to me right now. Whatever.) I have posted no Knex Instructables, no forum topics besides this, and only have half a blue tub of Knex in my basement. So why the &%! would I post a Knex contest, and offer fabulous prizes (look below)?Recently, for those who don't know, an argument in the Knex section has been going on. Quite a few Knexers, angered by their in-ability to pay for Pro (I need a pro judge! Look below), have left Instructables for a clone known as Knex Innovation, which is a Knex site similar to Instructables, but with higher criteria and no 'Non-Knexers". This gets me down. Instructables is a great site, and a substantial group leaving it makes me angry, esp. as it is over a small issue. However, one of their complaints- that Instructables does not cater to Knex- is completely true. There have been no official contests, and all the user-run ones are small. So here is a contest that I hope will draw those Knexers back to Instructables, while also improving the Knex image. Rules:Your entry MUST be original. No mods on anything existing. Borrowing parts from other builds is allowed with original author's permission. A PM will do.Your Entry must be completely Knex and rubber bands. For a complete list of allowed materials, check below.Your entry must be posted in Instructable format, with complete and readable instructions. For more detail, check "Criteria"Your entry must have good spelling and grammar. Entries without will be disqualified, within reason ( a few mistakes are fine.) If you are foreign, please send me a link to your unpublished 'ible, and i will correct as many mistakes as I find.Criteria for Judging:How well it worksAesthetics (PRETTY!!!)It must be clear and easy to follow, No "follow the pics". You must state, in both word and image format, how to do each step, with piece by piece instructions.GrammarSpellingAny additional rules stated in the roundAllowed Materials:Knex (Duh)Knex motorsRubber bandsTape (in moderation)Please ask if in doubt or if you wish to incorporate other materials.Prizes (Yay!)Grand Prize (1 winner)Either $10 or a tub of Knex.

Prizes can only be shipped within the U.S and Canada, participants from other countries will receive alternatives instead.Judging:Here is how the judging will work. There will be two non-knexer judges (myself and one Pro person, who is willing to provide prize patches) and two knexer. All entries will be up for judging by the people, and any person who wishes (including judges) can post their three votes IN THE THREAD FOR THAT ROUND. Votes posted anywhere else will be ignored. The top fifteen in the first round will advance, then the top ten. The third round is the judgment round. The judges, and only the judges, will vote and discuss over PM or AIM or something until we pick the winners (but largest entry can be from any round). got that?

Years Back in the 80's a friend had a stereo from "Fingerhut" that had spinning l.e.d fans that reacted to the music? Answered

The stereo had two fan like l.e.d. arrays of about 10 each in different colors red green yellow that were on fan like structures inside each of the 12" woofers on his home stereo that he got from "Fingerhut" the l.e.d.s would pulse with the music one side of a blade to the bass and the other with the highs usually ending up making a red & green with yellow pulsating orb inside each speaker that was seen through the black speaker cloth, I have never seen anything like this before or after anywhere but it was a very nice display and could be made with wheels or ceiling fans or any fan I bet, I wish I would have taken electronics in high school instead of CAD but the cad system was cutting edge in 86 and our school had access to them...the only thing I have seen like this is the floating message thingys that use a back and forth l.e.d.s waving in the air. I know if someone builds it it would sell good even for the automotive speaker markets...this was cheap chines junk it could not have cost much to build it but it did look great!!!! I have seen the automotive led wheels that can display pictures and such but this is way simpler than that and the power source and electronics were not spinning withe the leds... trust me build it and you will spend hours watching them while listening to music almost as good as what music videos used to be :) Anybody Seen or Know where they can be bought or can build them?

How Do I make an Alien arm like wikus's in District-9 in time for haloween?

I wanted to see district-9 since May when I saw one of the super creepy propaganda flavored commercials and became rabid with curiosity. I tried to sneak in (twice!). I finally saw it today. I loved it. Now, my heart is set on making an alien arm like Wikus's for Halloween. If I had seen the movie earlier, I would probably build the whole alien costume, but as things are I am a little short on time. I'll have to go for the genetic-recombinant-halfway-through-transformation look. I won't be going as Wikus specifically(I am female, so that wouldn't work anyway), so the arm & claw have to be all the more recognizable as district-9 alien stuff.  (I suppose I could bring a can of cat food along, but that feels like a badly contrived substitute for doing things right.). There are no reference pictures for me or anybody; because of  sony's secretive media campaign there are hardly any pictured of the aliens to be found, and I have yet to find one of Wikus in which his arm is visible. My dad says I should use paper-mache to make the thing, but I've had bad luck with the stuff in the past. I was thinking of using plastic on foam base, but that seems rather inefficient. the only other option that comes to mind is plaster, but I would have to make all the molds myself which would be quite a pain. any suggestions? I sure could use some.

Rockband DLC Review #1 - Metallica Pack

I would like to review the Metallica song pack for Rockband. You can get these songs from your console's store. Please note I play these on EXPERT ...And Justice For AllThis song = SUPER FUN! It can get you a good about 400,000 points if you play good. Okay, first there is a guitar intro, drums come in, another guitar part, then the drums come in... after that part, there is a very annoying beat using ALL of the drums. It's not hard, it just hurts soooo bad.Anyway, I will rate qualities out of 5 stars:Pain Rating : 5/5Fun Rating : 4/5Length Rating 4/5*Difficulty Rating 3/5 (but fun)To be able to get through the painful part, you might want to use a warmup setlist. Try this:Are You Gonna Be My Girl?(Please Don't) Fear the ReaperCherub RockNext to YouBrainpowerRide the LightningThis song is kinda meh/kinda AWESOME. I mean, it's heavy, fun, but some parts a just really fast.During Verse 3, there is a double bass hit... the fastest/hardest double bass hit in the history of Rockband.Pain:2Fun:4Length:5 - not too long not too shortDifficulty: 5 - enough fun partsBlackenedWhen I first tried this I was like "Oh... My... GOD!!!!". But when I went into practice mode I realized it was an easy beat, but played 2 times faster. It is kind of like the main beat of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?", but at least 2.5 times faster. Warmup before this song! =Pain: 5Fun: 5Length: 5Difficulty: 5Is this pack reccomendable? YES!! Get it immediately

Abney Park: (The semi-steampunk/weird genre of music group) :D

Abney Park comes from an era that never was, but one that we wish had been. An era where airships waged war in the skies, and corsets and cummerbunds were proper adventuring attire. They've picked up their bad musical habits, scoundrelous musicians, and anachronistically hybridized instruments from dozens of locations and eras that they have visited in their travels and thrown them into one riotous dervish of a performance. Expect clockwork guitars, belly dancers, flintlock bassists, middleastern percussion, violent violin, and Tesla powered keyboards blazing in a post- apocalyptic, swashbuckling, Steampunk musical mayhem. - quote from they're myspace page Band WebsiteBand Myspace

Any good cheap roleplaying games? Answered

I like D&D 4th Edition, I also play Microlite 20 and Dungeon Squad, both have free rules online, but can anyone give me a game with cheap cost that has advanced miniature warfare. I play these games with four other people, not including me. We use cardboard tokens and printed dungeon grids/maps, and recently clay/wooden figures I make and paint. Axis and Allies, which I currently do not own, is the type of warfare that would be appropriated, or Warhammer 40K (which I also do not own), but these games do not have the adventure to it. No story telling, no heros fighting the ferocious dragon of ungodly and unpronounceable name to save the maiden. What game (supplement rules or characters is nice) has miniature warfare and story-like qualities such as D&D without the cost?

Ok ive been knex'ing for a little bit ive decided that i like pistols the most. my favorite being the M1911 and beretta 92fs but the king of all pistols the desert eagle i have seen every replica of this gun/guns (including the other two) and none of them work like them. if im correct selezonias M1911 looks real but no mag in the handle and no slide. i havent seen a beretta yet. and the desert eagle no one has actually made one that works like the real one (back slide action) the closest gun ive seen is ironman's i forget which one so i want everyone to tell me which one i should build. your vote would be very helpful.
