Re: What map of the Zone are you using? How did you start your campaign?

I just started GMing a game, and this was the mapping solution we came up with:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FmFr6 ... sp=sharing

This is a shared MyMaps Google map with notes from the very first session.  The players have access to it and will add information as the game goes on.

Since we all live in this same Brooklyn neighborhood, we're treating "sectors" as something more like "neighborhoods and landmarks", and building encounters off of that.

Will report back as to how it's going, but so far, so good!

I'm about to start a campaign of Mutant: Year Zero. My players liked the idea of a cathedral for an Ark (and I did, too), so we're planning to set the Zone in Paris with Notre Dame de Paris as the Ark.

Our session 0 went well, but didn't have time to actually start playing. Got all of the characters and arc built though.

The PCs consist of: A chronicler that wants to solve the infertility crisis, a gearhead who wants to become indispensable around the Ark by being the best at building things, an enforcer that believes he can become strong enough to fight the Rot itself, and a stalker who is just looking to die on his own terms out in the zone where no one will find the shrine he'll build for himself.

They built the ark underneath a partially collapsed highway overpass using abandoned cars and wreckage. It looks like a jury-rigged scaffolding system, so they built "up" rather than "out".

Established 3 bosses: One is a fat, bulbous man with the Frog Legs mutation that rules by strength and fear. Rather gluttonous. Another is a civil man that enjoys the finer things in life and cherishes his pristine suit and crystal glass that managed to survive the destruction. The third is a populist boss who appeals to the slaves and other low-standing mutants.
Do you have a zone map for/from that game?
