This will be a Epic Fantasy buy in at 25 points.
Do not roll money or equipment as the town is equipping you.
Pick skills and feats and the elders will take that into account when providing you with equipment.
All characters receive a +5 bonus (as in called shot) against zombies and lower undead because of experience, so while technically 1st level you are already a leg up.

This is planned to be equal parts roll playing, problem solving, dungeon crawl.

Races:
All races from the core book plus

Llwellen
--1 level adjustment.
Llwellen are tiny winged humanoids around 8" tall (Male = 6" + 2d6 quarter inches, Female = 6" + 2d4 quarter inches)
Weight: M = 1lb + 3d6 ounces F = 1lb + 3d4 ounces ("Mabel your looking fabulous... did you loose an ounce?")
Their wings are translucent and colorful, configured like butterfly wings, otherwise they appear as slender beautiful humans with pointed ears. Their feet are prehensile and slightly elongated. Hair runs from black through white with greys in the middle but rare. They are very hardy and have no modesty taboos but tend to wear some clothing to keep the other races from discomfort. Because of their wing to weight ratio they only move at 20' and slightly erratically like butterflies and more often than not will hitch a ride with another but few ever refuse them a ride because of their innate ability to be good company ( +5 diplomacy, +5 perception, +5 sense motive). Base land speed is 10 but because of agile feet and hands stays the same on rough vertical surfaces. Not being built for speed their Max air speed is 40' and can only maintain that for 2 plus Con modifier before becoming fatigued but bounce back fast and are back to normal in 10 minuets. They have low light vision.
Racial Modifiers :
Strength -6
Dexterity +4
Constitution +4
Charisma +4
They have a +10 verses crushing damage but bludgeoning does normal. You can step on them and they will probably get up and be pissed, but if you hit them with a baseball bat they will probably need some healing.
They also have a +5 to AC because of being naturally agile on the ground and erratic in flight as a dodge bonus.
They receive the tiny AC bonus as well.
Fast healing: Llwellen receive their con bonus in healing every 6 hours
Llwellen are proficient with knives but damage is adjusted for size 1d2 and bows and blowguns both 1d2 and sling 1d2
Llwellen are proficient with light armor but hate it.
They speak sylvan, common. Llwellen with high intelligence can learn Dwarven, Elven, Orcish.

Damon,

Just for clarification, you state "All characters receive a +5 bonus (as in called shot) against zombies and lower undead because of experience, so while technically 1st level you are already a leg up."

I couldn't find a core rule for 'called shot' but I'm assuming it's just a +5 to attack vs. zombies and lower undead. Is that right?

Also, not that it matters for my character with his INT of 7 but is there a similar boost for knowledge checks regarding undead?

Damon,

Also, were you allowing traits and, if so, how many?

You get an alarm clock, and for the first few weeks you have to look where the button to shut it off is. Then comes a day when you reach over and immidiatly shut it off with out looking. Think of it as a familiarity bonus. I think the called shot table is in the APG.

Max hit dice per class plus bonuses as per Core and APG. Con bonuses will play a significant roll in this adventure especially early on.
Saw a poster that said " when the Zombie apocalypse comes I'm heading straight to the the graveyard for the best game of Wack-A-Mole ever!"
Sort of like that at the start.
