Thought I would include my GM Cheat Sheet in-case anyone wants to use it and tweak it for their upcoming games.  Again shout outs to S. John Ross and Risus-verse for the resources.

Pittsburgh Zombie Apocalypse
“The GM Cheat Sheet”

Plotline: Beginning story takes place in the Pittsburgh area where characters must navigate around and choose ultimately what to do to survive.  The entire world does not necessarily have to be swarmed in zombies.  Game sessions can be one shot sessions where characters can die.

Character Creation:  Each player can choose to play as themselves or create a fictional character.  Each player then chooses 3 or 4 starting Cliché (Classes or Abilities).  They assign 10 points to each of these Cliché’s but cannot exceed 4 points in one.  Each Cliché should fit into the following parameters.  Characters are allowed to create their own Cliché’s with proper explanation on how it can work for them.

1 = Basic Level- "I saw it on YouTube"
2 = Advanced Level- "You studied it in High School"
3 = Professional Level – "Yeah I got this."
4 = Passionate Level- "It consumes most of your life"
5 = Psycho Level- "It IS your life"
6 = Ultimate Level- "Are you sure you’re not a god?"

Example Clichés:
Natural Athlete – good at physical challenges
Resourceful- good at making things out of nothing
“I like guns”- good at ranged weapons
English Lit Major- good at understanding books and well spoken
Thief- good at picking locks and pockets, etc
Womanizer- good at talking to women and being liked by women

Skill Checks:  When dice are rolled, each Even-Numbered result is counted as a “Success.” Odd numbers are discarded. In addition, “6”s always “ACE.” That is, each six not only counts as a success, but it is immediately re-rolled, with an even result added to the success total (and continuing to ace as long as a six is rolled—the beloved “exploding dice effect.”)

1) Single-Action Contests: Both sides roll the appropriate number of dice for their respective cliches. The side with the most number of successes wins. Ties can either be re-rolled or go to the side who rolled the fewest (or most!) dice depending on the group’s preference. 

2) Combat: Each round, both sides roll the appropriate number of dice for their respective clichés. The side with the most successes wins, resulting in the loss of one cliché dice (or more, depending on the situation) for the loser. Ties can be handled as above.
The “teaming up” rules can be handled in one of two ways: either all even results count as successes toward the team leader’s total or just sixes, as in the original rules. If just sixes count, allow those sixes to ace as normal. If all evens can contribute, just allow the team leader’s sixes to ace.

(Players should remember that in single-action contests and combat, opponent’s dice can ace, as well…)
If a player is unsuccessful at combat, the outcome of what happens to the player is determined when all other character’s have passed or failed their combat.  If all characters are defeated, the first player to fall dies in some gruesomely awesome way.

3) Target Number Roll: Instead of rolling against a target number, a certain number of successes is required to achieve the desired result using the following difficulty scale:

Easy: 1 / Tricky: 2 / Hard: 3 / Heroic: 4 / Legendary: 5 / Impossible: 6+

The process used to determine the difficulty rating in Risus—by figuring out how hard the task is in the context of the cliché’s relevance—is still used the same way here, as is the idea that the degree of success or failure may affect the overall result. And yes, sixes still ace.

Be careful what you wish for, prescriptivists: The more perfectly you preserve the written form of a language, the more it comes apart from speech in the long run. The latest Johnson column argues for allowing writing to change gradually to keep up with unstoppable changes in speech.

Kate Kavanagh was all set to interview the dashing young business magnate Christian Grey. The soon-to-be-journalism graduate had her questions at the ready, a recorder primed to catch every word and pause. But wouldn't you know it, a virus turned Kate into a walking mass of sniffles and sneezes, and she knows the only interview she'll be doing will be with a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup. 

The interview still has to get done for the college paper. So Kate asks her roomie, Anastasia Steele, if she might fill in. Hey, the girl's an English lit major, right? Close enough to journalism.

Thoughtful roommate that she is, Ana dutifully heads to Christian's oh-so-chic Seattle offices. "Clean," she later describes him—crisp in his gray suit and tie, precise in movement and language, Ken Doll pretty, intimidating. Flustered, she's forgotten a pen. He gives her a pencil. 

What's the secret of his success, she asks. He has a way with people, he says. He can evaluate them quickly and utilize them to fulfill his needs. When she suggests he's something of a control freak, he agrees. "I exercise control in all things, Ms. Steele." What does he like to do in his spare time? "I enjoy various physical pursuits," he says, a hint of a smile playing across his face.

And then he begins asking Ana questions. 

"There's really not much to know about me," Ana says with a blush.

Christian won't believe that. And perhaps in that moment, the young tycoon decides to know Ana in every way possible.
