Umbagog Information Navigation

Where you make a character, break 'em, and debate whether to put them back together again (and for how long).

This post-apocalyptic world features zombies, mutant zombies, and basically-dead-inside not-zombies. Join and explore a world of psychology, horror, and hurt as we create a collective universe together centered in northern New Hampshire (renowned for its maple syrup and POTUS primary season! Oh and cold. Brutal horrifying cold).

There's no time limits on challenges. We encourage progress at your own pace with a team of ready and willing art/writing mods to guide you through stages. Talk with, about, and at other members and their characters via our Skype chat (note FablePaint for inclusion) or waffle about on your own like you did when you were a kid playing with action figures. Which was fucking rad.

Where do They All Go?

So What's the Game?

The Rules


Official Umbagog Youtube where we collect playlists and video reference material for you, including videos of the region or just fun gory movies and biology information.
Our Tumblr where we collect any member's Tumblr-based Umbagog art and inspirations. This updates pretty regularly :D
Old Information Archive where Umbagog's previous challenge and structure information is stored

Umbagog Chat Room
Hey, I've gotten a few questions recently about whether or not the group is still active.
The answer is yes, I and our mods regularly check the submissions and give advice to group members about what they're submitting or general tips for improving writing, art, and development. Very rarely does a day go by that I personally am not checking on the group activity.

However as many of our members prefer to put their development work on their personal blogs rather than on DA (preferring to upload only finished pieces instead), we have a Tumblr blog to help inspire and showcase our member work there at

But what about the NPC's? How come I've not been posting as much about them of late?
Well currently, I've been working very hard on converting my original characters' stories into a graphic novel. I've been working on their stories for a while now and though I share that development here too, I'm more often working behind the scenes lately. It's a longterm project that probably won't see the light of day for another year or two, but I'm confident about where it's going. It involves a lot of development and exploration since before this group was even public that I'm excited to see be a singular, complete work distinct from our public space.

So if you're wondering why things are quiet, this is why.

*(note, NO OCs made by members in this group are used in the book. I like making my own characters and respect our members too much to do that).
Please go to our main page to view our new organization and the newly restructed information widget on the upper righthand side of our page.

There will be some minor cleanup here and there later, but for now you may get crackin on the new Challenge System.

Major changes:
  • challenges no longer specific to species
  • character sheets are due after Survival Stage is completed
  • New sheet type: collective sheets. Any characters you create during Society Stage can now be used independently and complete their own challenges.
  • New group type: Mad Bears. Psychotic kill-or-be-killed gang of human survivors without consistent leadership. You're free to assume control of or create a minor gang within them.
  • better organization. rules and challenges are presented more clearly for easier reading
  • Fewer challenges required in order to rank up

Thanks for helping make this happen!

Welp you're still welcome to apply. We just need two examples of your work when you submit a join request which follow the guidelines in our rules (basically, making sure you're able to complete a full composition with backgrounds, colors, lighting, characters, etc)
