The Golden Age of Superheroes has ended, not with a BANG but with a BITE!
The Dead have overrun the world and humanity's protectors are either missing, dead or worse yet, Z'ed! Dismissed as the Poor Man's Super Hero, you are mankind's only hope for survival in this horror-filled world where the greatest threat is not the Living Dead, but the Super Zombies that sit at the top of the food chain looking hungrily down upon you!
Rotted Capes is a cross genre Role-playing Game where the gleaming world of Superheroes crashes headlong into the gritty and horror-filled world of Zombies! Using a streamlined version of the Arcanis RPG system, Rotted Capes is a fast paced game which can be played in which ever style best suits your group - Campy or Horrific seriousness! It's the near future and Z-Day has come and gone. No one knows how or where it started, but when the dead started attacking the living, the populace turned, as usual, to its Super Heroes! But this was a threat unlike any other and the unthinkable happened: their Heroes failed!
As one of the B-listers, men, women (and aliens) who were sidekicks or low powered superheroes or villains, you're all that stands between the ravening hordes of the Unliving and humanity's total extinction. But as if mindless zombies weren't enough to deal with, many of those Heroes everyone looked up to have been Z'ed! Now they too hunger for flesh and with their super powers and inhuman cunning and intelligence, they may be unstoppable!
No one ever said being a Hero was easy!
