At some Zombie LARP events, players have the option of playing as a particular type of character, with special rules and items. Character classes are “opt-in” rules, so if you can’t be bothered with it, you can just ignore it all.
The character class system may not be used at every event. Even if character classes are not in use, it’s usually possible to re-create the classes yourself by picking the right items, dressing up, and shouting particular things. Alternatively, if you’ve got your heart set on a particular character concept but it doesn’t seem to be possible with the available rules and items, just ask one of the refs about it. We won’t invent new classes on the spot, but we’ll fudge the item options quite a bit as long as it won’t break the game.
