This is a story that has been working overtime in my mind for quite some time. The idea was to be a typical zombie apocalypse story. As the concept built itself within my head, I developed an idea of short stories that fell within the created world. As I continued, it transformed itself from short stories to a potential tabletop RPG (D&D type), with the current iteration being the origin of the world being played in.
Now? Why stop with either of those? This particular project is all of the above. It might be too much to handle, but it is the only way to scratch the itch surrounding the idea.
I have even been lucky enough to have had a conversation with the creator of Pathfinder. He was kind enough to open my eyes into the potential length of creation for a tabletop game. In other words, holding your breath is a terrible idea.
