Red Markets by Caleb Stokes

When the tired joke of the zombie apocalypse clawed its way out of our subconscious and into terrifying reality, our cultural obsession killed as many as it saved. After the chaos finally subsided, the apocalypse ended up unevenly distributed...just like everything else.

Humanity survived by leaving a part of itself behind. The world is now divided: haves and have-nots, living and dead, The Recession and The Loss.

In Red Markets, characters play Takers: mercenary entrepreneurs unwilling to accept their abandonment and forced to risk their lives trading between the quarantined zones and the remains of civilization. The game uses the traditional zombie narrative as a tool to tell an all-too-real story of life on the wrong end of capitalism.

Introduction To Red Markets

MODERATORS

Red Markets is a roleplaying game of economic horror set in the post-zombie apocalypse United States. It is the premier release by Hebanon Games and Caleb Stokes. The Blight caught people off guard when it emerged, not because they hadn't been prepared for it by decades of B-movies, but because they dismissed it as click-baity fake news. As a result, the Federal government, still reeling from the economic troubles of the early 21st century, gave up on salvaging the western states of the USA and just cut them off. Eventually some of the survivors in the west, or "The Loss" as it's commonly referred to now, coalesced into Enclaves fortified against the hordes of walking Casualties.

In Red Markets , characters risk their lives trading between the massive quarantine zones containing a zombie outbreak and the remains of civilization. They are Takers : mercenary entrepreneurs unwilling to accept their abandonment. They must hustle, scheme, and scam as hard as they fight if they hope to survive the competing factions and undead hordes the GM throws at them. The dice mechanic uses two sided dice of different colors called Red and Black. At the basic level, a new player need only be able to answer one question: is one number higher than the other?

Red Markets is a tabletop RPG about economic horror, nominated for “Best Game” at the Ennie Awards. In Red Markets, characters risk their lives trading.

Takers that are quick, clever, or brutal enough might live to see retirement in a safe zone, but many discover too late that the cycle of poverty proves harder to escape than the hordes of undead.
