My game will soon feature a great throng of zombies shambling their way right towards the player characters; rather than spend several sessions making hack and slash rolls, I spewed out these custom moves. I’d love your feedback; are these fun? Are they dangerous enough?
When you fight the zombie horde, roll 2d6+STR
10+ choose 2
7-9 choose 1
You avoid being caught by the zombies
You land a meaningful hit, roll damage against a zombie.
You maintain your position in the face of the zombie horde
You help another person escape the zombies
When you’re caught by zombies, roll 2d6+STR
10+ You escape their grasp
7-9 You aren’t mauled or eviscerated, but they worsen your position – pin you down, take a weapon away, etc.
6- The undead horde tears you to shreds and feasts upon your bits
