Southern Rising is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of average citizens (businessmen, school teachers, public servants, police officers, and/or soldiers) trying to stop the rising of the confederacy by any means necessary.
Set in 2011 the game allows modern player characters to take on undead soldiers of the Confederacy, making this a mash-up of genres. It is a skill-based table-top RPG which begs the question, “What if the South did rise again - as UNDEAD!
Southern Rising is not the typical skill-based role playing game. It has a unique twist. It is three games in one! You can play the default setting (modern vs. undead with civil war technology), Alternate History (supernatural elements during the civil war) or a strict historical campaign. The rulebook gives information on all three!
