Hopefinder is a Modern Zombie Apocalypse Survival Hack of Pathfinder Second Edition

The world came to an end in October, 2022, when a parasitic plague caused the dead to rise up and consume the living. Within weeks the Z Plague spread to every corner of the globe and within six months the undead outnumbered the living. The year is 2032 and humanity is hanging on by a thread. You are the NARRATOR of this tale, working with the survivors to create a compelling a memorable story.

Hopefinder is a hack of Pathfinder Second Edition.

This game requires the rules of Pathfinder Second Edition and an understanding of that game to play. Hopefinder is designed for short campaigns, telling uplifting stories set against the backdrop of a grim zombie apocalypse. This game uses milestone leveling and gives narrative control to the players through Flashbacks that allow them to explore their past and unlock abilities to help them survive in the future. Hopefinder uses a classless leveling system, allowing you to make a wide variety of survivors!

This packet includes the Hopefinder Narrator's Guide, a 52 page booklet (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") that contains all of the rules needed to create your own campaign set in the ruined world of Hopefinder. It includes story suggestions, narrator advice, a gazetteer of Seattle, over 30 creature stat blocks, and a sample adventure! There are two versions of this PDF included in your purchase (an OGL version and a version compatible with the ORC License). This packet also includes the Hopefinder Maps zip file containing a larger version of the map of Seattle and an untagged version of the Fire Station map from the sample adventure.

The Print on Demand version of this book is compatible with the ORC license only.

Narrator's should be familiar with the Hopefinder Survivor's Guide which contains all the rules for making a survivor and playing the game.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
