They depended on each other, even in death. And the world feared them. A World War II Sourcebook for the All Flesh Must Be Eaten RPG.

What are we doing here

Thanks for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter page.

We are hoping we can raise enough funds to get the Band of Zombies sourcebook for the award winning/critically acclaimed zombie survival role-playing game, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, to print and would like to ask for your pledge!

The books layout is complete and at this point just need to pay for final artwork and then to go to press. This is where you come in. Help us get this book done and to the printer... or the Nazis win!

If you like the zombie survival horror genre and are new to the world of All Flesh Must Be Eaten (or AFMBE for short), we have a pledge just for you where you will get the corebook of the game and help us fund this project. We also have a dozen other sourcebooks and supplements as additional add-ons to help expand your survival chance in the world of All Flesh Must Be Eaten!

What is All Flesh Must Be Eaten?

All Flesh Must Be Eaten is a roleplaying gameset in a world of survival horror.
A world where the dead have come back from their graves.You have no clue as to why they have returned... but one thing is certain...

They crave living flesh!

There's more to a zombie than just a walking corpse. While its busy busting down your front door and scooping out your sister's brains you might not have time to think about that, but later, when you pause to reflect in the basement, hoping that door doesn't give way and wondering how much food you have down here, you might want to consider just where these damn dead guys came from. After all, the dead don't rise up and start consuming the flesh of the living for no reason at all. Behind every good zombie story there's a good (or at least amusing) back story.

In All Flesh Must Be Eaten, the setting is not set. You will be presented with a dozen diffrent campaign settings to start your survival horror campaign. Modern day, post-apocalyptic, and even a setting set during World War II. Each setting details the reasons why the dead walk and how to kill them (if they can be).

All roleplaying games have at their hearts the "What if . . ?" question.

In All Flesh Must Be Eaten, the question is "What if you were faced with a world gone to Hell, where ravenous undead sought living prey?"

What if you had to fight for survival, sometimes against former friends and loved ones?

Would you be curious to find out the cause of the horror?

Would you delve into the heart of the zombie-infested areas to discover the truth?

Would you brave death to end the threat? What if there were no cause, no solution?

Would it be better to simply flee for safety to ensure the survival of the race?

All Flesh Must Be Eaten is a game that combines elements of horror (there are walking dead in this world, and they feed on humans) with survival (characters have the rely on their skills and abilities to live through the night) and conflict (the characters may know the truth; what are they going to do about it?).

"We few, we rotting few, we band of zombies;
For he today that eats his flesh with me 
Shall be a zombie; be he e'er so vile..."

...a grayish blur launched from the shadows. Alexei went down quickly, his throat torn out in one swipe of a black claw. He clawed at the gaping wound in his throat, gurgled, and lay still.Yuri fired a shot, point-blank range, into the thing’s head. It hit the ground and twitched, then lay still. A low growl came from the shadows and three more of the monsters lumbered forth. Movement to Yuri’s left drew his gaze; the creature he’d shot was sitting up, black blood pouring down between its eyes. The four creatures closed in just as the booming roar of a renewed German shelling attack sounded in the distance.

Yuri began to scream.
