From publisher blurb:
Rotted Capes puts you in the spandex and cape of the so-called B-List super hero trying to save what’s left of humanity and the remaining pockets of civilization after all the primary super heroes and villains fell to the emerging zombie horde. These A-Lister are now either all dead, missing or Z’d.
Z'd means that your former allies, partners and mentors have been horribly mutated and turned into super powered versions of the Risen Dead. This has propelled them to the top of the new food chain and they're looking down at you! These Super Zombies would be dangerous enough with just being able to wield their amazing powers, but the change has allowed them to keep a semblance of their intellect, albeit scrubbed of the ability to distinguish between right and wrong. These Super Zombies are cunning and intelligent; with an overwhelming hunger that impels them to commit foul acts that would leave their former selves aghast.
While Rotted Capes will feature a sample setting, the game itself is designed to give you, the Editor-in-Chief, the greatest amount of flexibility and resources to craft a version of the game that fits you and your group’s play style. Whether you prefer the dark and gritty feel of the "Walking Dead," a more tongue in cheek tone or something in between, Rotted Capes gives you the tools necessary to present the game that you and your players want.
Powered by a streamlined and cinematic version of the Origin’s Award winning system used in the Arcanis: World of the Shattered Empires RPG, Rotted Capes is a fast and furious game that allows you to simulate most any action seen in the comics while also introducing a unique player interaction mechanism called Plot Points. Plot Points allow the players to change details in a particular scene to their benefit or detriment, but always with an eye towards making the adventure more exciting.
