General Info and RTJs
Red Markets is a tabletop RPG about economic horror.

In Red Markets, characters risk their lives trading between the massive quarantine zones containing a zombie outbreak and the remains of civilization. They are Takers: mercenary entrepreneurs unwilling to accept their abandonment. Bound together into competing crews, each seeks to profit from mankindís near-extinction before it claims them. They must hustle, scheme, and scam as hard as they fight if they hope to survive the competing factions and undead hordes the GM throws at them.

Takers that are quick, clever, or brutal enough might live to see retirement in a safe zone, but many discover too late that the cycle of poverty proves harder to escape than the hordes of undead.

Red Markets uses the traditional zombie genre to tell a story about surviving on the wrong end of the economy. Itís cut-throat capitalism with its knife on your neck.

In a more direct sense, Red Markets is game that just finished its Kickstarter.  Backer previews are out, though you can play without needing them.

The current game on offer is a FAST run through the convention playtest packet for the game.  This involves the use of pregen characters and a pregen adventure.  Daily posting will be required (with Saturday-Sunday counting as 1 day).


First off, please understand that I am recruiting for something very specific.  You don't need any rules knowledge for this.  Just state your willingness to play, be aware that it's a very fast post rate, and be willing to do a survey at the end.  See the Playtest Links thread for the pregen characters.  You can change the handle, but tell me which one you want to play.
