Years ago, I had this idea and since I am trying to spur on conversation here in the Dead Reign forum, I thought I'd share the basics of that idea.

So, the game would begin as a variant of a Beyond the Supernatural game in a sense. Something weird is going on and the PCs are engaged into finding out what it is. As the PCs investigate, they uncover a plot that could plunge the world into the zombie apocalypse, though what it is they uncover could differ from game to game. Possibilities include a madman using science to either unwittingly or even knowingly create zombies (PCs could end up doing battle with "patient zero", who is not only a zombie but also very strong and fast and retains their intelligence and knowledge!), a company that is doing drug trials that has a huge side-effect of killing people and turning them into the undead, or... well, the possibilities are limitless. From there, the PCs must act, giving them a chance to bring it to an end before the unthinkable happens. However, they can fail and still play, turning the game into a game of Dead Reign.

Comment: Huh! What? There was homework???
I was working on this exact same thing years ago. It seemed like a good progression for the concept.

Hmm, I did a Dead Reign game where a group gathers, finds their way to an island connected by bridges to the mainland after a few games and a bunch of paranoia the team manages to secure the island and then set out to gather supplies. On one of their trips they see these creatures that look like they're made of black metal. Whenever they work up to trying to approach they pass through a reflection of themselves and as their boat is assaulted they pass out they awaken, already fighting but it isn't their hands... or bodies and they're surrounded by weird creatures all fighting the metal creatures. Once they win they again pass out and awaken on their boat the tide and current has taken them back near the island they cam from. They're then contacted and invited to join a group where they are shown they're nightspawn. They come to realize that the zombies they've been fighting was hysteria the group concocted because they found zombies easier to cope with than hunters. As part of the new group they eventually start using the Astral plane to go into Rifts. So the game is a Dead Reign/Nightspawn/Rifts game. But I use all the PB books in my Rifts.

I will point out that DR is a separate game from the rest of the PB games. NNtR

?what do you mean?

Rt is its own
AtB is its own... wait easier this way
AFAIK the only ones really linked are BtS/CE/Rifts
It can be argued that N&S and HU are also parts of that but the rest are seperat from those timeliness and worlds.
