Mercs vs Zombies. Fancy capturing a zombie-infested island?
Iím thinking of setting up a short, mission-centered game where the PCs are officers and NCOs leading a platoon-strength commando raid to clear a small (80 acre) offshore island with minimal collateral damage. The setting would be England, tomorrow, following the zombie apocalypse.

Iíd be looking for perhaps a half-dozen players who can write paragraphs as well as roll dice, and who are able to post daily for the next few months.

Iíd be using a 'rules lite' system which would be presented in the game, and the game would be rated Mature.

Any interest?

Thanks for your responses, folks. We're a bit short of the 6 players we need to run this. I thought it would have attracted more attention. I'm not sure whether to set something up and hope to get more response from Players Wanted, or whether to go with Plan B, which I would have to Rmail you about, since I'm not allowed to discuss it here. I'll give it another 24 hours.

I'd love to join, this concept sounds like a lot of fun.

If you haven't seen and of the Delta Green stuff out there, give it a look.  It would be a perfect fit for this game concept.  Sure, DG is more Lovecraftian than Zombie-fied, but it will still be worth the look.

Ok, if everyone is still interested that takes us over halfway. Which is probably near enough to set up a game and try to raise the rest of the crew in Wanted.

Iíll put something together over the next few days and, if all goes well, I should be at the RTJ stage by Monday.
