Chronicles of Zombie Town

In a landmark pact with the U.S. government, Zombie Town's residents have ceased their hunt for humans, opting for an unusual but less satisfying diet of pumpkins. The shift has led to increased discontent among the population, who still yearn for human flesh.

To counter rising tensions and uplift spirits, Ashes The Emperor has initiated the Undead Festival - a vibrant gathering meant to foster unity and joy with pumpkin-inspired dishes, lively music, and themed activities.

As a Zombie Town inhabitant, your attendance is mandatory, plunging you into the center of this extraordinary cultural event. The festival is more than a mere celebration; it's a testament to the community's resilience and willingness to adapt. You will immerse yourself in the festivities, sampling new tastes, embracing different beats, and engaging in unique games while navigating your undead peers' intricate social landscape. The Undead Festival is where your story begins.

Emperor OF Zombie Town

Ashes leads the newly formed Zombie Town as the brave and hard-nosed dictator. During the takeover, Ashes self-appointed the title of Emperor. It is apparent that Ashes has some deep-rooted ego issues. 

Ashes was a former Hollywood movie star before becoming infected with the H5N1 Zombie Virus.  This emperor will get what is requested or throw an angry tirade.  Double-crossing Ashes is unwise.

COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Regal yet tattered clothing. Zombie makeup: scars/skeleton showing and heavy white/black makeup on the face. Optional to have a scepter and an emperor’s robe/crown.


Zombie Town Chief of Police
Coppa is Ashes the Emperor’s right-hand zombie. As the police chief, it’s Coppa’s responsibility to make sure the town runs smoothly and that the zombie citizens lawfully conduct themselves. Coppa has had a difficult time recently with the growing frustrations with the cravings for living human flesh.  Not a crowd favorite, Coppa has wretched manners and is outright rude.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Tattered clothing, zombie makeup, a messy wig with a police hat, and a toy gun/baton as optional props.


Zombie Town Real Estate Agent

Keejack assumed the role of the official Zombie Town Real Estate Agent the day the zombies took over Sunnyville. With no conventional financial system in town, Keejack’s purpose is to solve all disagreements involving property acquisitions.

 Keejack’s a nightmare to work with, as this prior defense attorney is an incessant trash-talker. Keejack is also bluntly honest. If you fear the truth, avoid this undead fiend at all costs! 

COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Tattered clothing. Zombie makeup. A messy wig is an optional prop. Optional to have an assortment of keys to properties around town as a prop.

Zombie Town Repair Shop Owner

In the last three weeks since the zombies took over Sunnyville, Darebait hasn’t made many friends. This zombie is uptight, inflexible, and impersonal, making Darebait unpleasant to be around.

This undead body tailor runs the Zombie Repair Shop where zombies must go to have their body parts reattached. Darebait puts on a front as a real zombitarian but is more of a vigilante, using connections on the streets of Zombie Town to cause havoc with troublemakers.

Zombie Town Bounty Hunter
A perfectionist by heart, Gogeya (for ‘gonna get ya’) is the top bounty hunter in Zombie Town. If a criminal’s on the loose or if a human enters Zombie Town, Gogeya tracks ‘em down by dawn.  Gogeya is arrogant and conceited and believes nobody in town is better looking.  Gogeya regularly admires their undead face in anything with a reflection. 
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Tattered bounty hunter-style clothing, zombie makeup, a messy bleached-blonde ‘mullet’ wig as an optional prop, and an optional handheld mirror.


Zombie Town Joke Shop Owner
Don’t trust the fun-loving party animal and prankster zombie that answers to the name of Harg.

Cemetery Guard
Grave is the mysterious cemetery guard at Sunnyville Memorial Cemetery.  It’s rumored that the H5N1 Zombie Virus can bring the dead back to life and Grave might have dabbled with revival experiments.

Cotour designs all of the fashionable zombie attire in the zombie fashion store The Gauze Shed.

COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Tattered clothing with fashionable gauze accessories (i.e., a scarf and /or headband made out of gauze). Zombie makeup. A messy wig as an optional prop.

Jace’s friends were set to be the soon-to-be-famous backup singers and dancers but also contracted the undead virus. But now, Jace is a zombie without a purpose and deeply envious of the living.

More backstory of your zombie mystery:

A few cute zombies eating pumpkins in a shopping center..jpg

Three weeks after the devastating H5N1 Zombie Virus outbreak, Sunnyville transformed into Zombie Town, quarantined by the CDC as the federal government issued stark warnings. Despite the secrecy, the crisis led to the creation of a vaccine halting further spread, leaving Zombie Town's unique citizens - decomposing yet upstanding - isolated due to their new, unnerving craving for human flesh.

Amidst growing global awareness, the Save a Zombie Alliance advocated for peace, leading to negotiations between Ashes, Zombie Town's leader, and the U.S. President. A tentative truce dictates that zombies stay within town limits while humans wandering into Zombie Town accept the risks.

Despite finding sustenance in pumpkins, the townsfolk's cravings persist, stirring unrest. In response, Ashes organizes the Undead Festival to lift spirits with festivities centered around pumpkin cuisine, music, and games. As a resident, your attendance is expected. This is where your story begins.
