I’ve been talking about Aruneus, the zombie apocalypse and high fantasy for a while now.  Today marks a big day for this whole project.

The first official Aruneus supplement for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game system is nearing completion!  I’ve gotten the rough art for the zombies from the fantastic Seth Kumpf.  Here’s a sneak peak!

I think that it’s great!  Keep in mind it’s not the finished artwork either.  Seth did a bang up job imagining what the three different types of zombies would look like and then translating that into art.

Other than some formatting and the finalization of the artwork, The World of Aruneus – Contagion Infected Human Zombies is ready to head to the (virtual) printers!  It will be available through our storefront at DriveThruRPG, where we already have a few free products.

The Orcs supplement is about 80% complete, with a new playable race, a new beastie and some other neat stuff.

Lastly, I’m launching the play test of the official campaign tonight.  Once we’ve played it through and I can tweak it some, I’ll have that available as well!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. Looks great. I’m curious, are these little supplements going to be excerpts from the full blown project?

  2. Yes, with some of the free ones being extra material. Keep in mind though, if I don’t get the funding through Kickstarter, these supplements are going to be how I’m going to do it.


  3. Looks incredibly gruesome. I will have to look into Aruneus quite a bit :D

    I’m new to your blog, are there certain posts you can point me to so I can learn more about it?

  4. It’s as much fun as you can have with a horde of undead! is what you want to go to for updated posts. Or go to the wiki and forums at
