Imagine being the only survivor of a disease that kills every member of your family, that kills lovers, strangers, friends. You are among the lonely few to live and now you must start over in a strange new world where everything that was once safe and familiar is now strange and dangerous.

Survivors is a role playing game set in the UK in the aftermath of a pandemic that killed 99% of the world population. It started as a simply flu but its strength was underestimated and when the government realized the severity of the situation it was too late.

It's been six months since the first fatal case of the disease. Three months ago basic systems went offline, the Prime Minister perished to the flu and the Secretary of State for Health urged the population to trust their neighbors and remain calm. It was the last broadcast on TV.

There's no one in charge now. There's no law, no justice. The survivors are left to fend for themselves. What do you do when you've lost everything? What do you do when you only have today?

This is a game about overcoming difficulties, creating a new future, forgetting yesterday. This is a game about surviving the imaginable and finding hope in the smallest things.

The game is brand new and the basic plots are still being created so this is the perfect time for people to get involved and be part of the creation. Check the website and see the roles avaiable. Suggest one if you think you have an interesting idea and join us for this adventure.

Thanks, Pen Survivors Admin.
