It's October, the leaves are changing color and beginning to fall, that means my favorite holiday is just around the corner. Yes Halloween is only a few short weeks away. So to celebrate I will be posting about various movies, games, books and websites that are well suited for the occasion. For now here is book Palladium is releasing just in time to run a Halloween night game.
"Dead Reign™", an RPG based in a world where zombies have taken over. It is an SDC setting which, naturally, uses the Palladium rules.
According to the Palladium site "Dead Reign™ is a game of survival, rescue and revenge. Player characters are both the hunted and the hunters as they battle the creeping doom that is the living dead and pray for salvation. "
You play as a survivor who tries to make their way in a world full of the dead where the living are hunted and used as cattle.

Art by Nick Bradshaw and Amy L. Ashbaugh.

Sounds like a lot of fun and I will definitely be posting a review when my copy arrives.
Here is a site that might be of interest to anyone who is a fan or horror.
Flames Rising is an e-zine/blog that focuses on fiction and gaming. There are sections for articles, horror news, fiction, previews, reviews and also interviews with authors such as Z. A. Recht, Elaine Cunningham and Jaleigh Johnson. While the whole site isn't strictly about horror, it does make up a large portion of the content. Very good and interesting site to check out.
