So if you can't join us on TFP #1, be sure you hop on to #2!

What the Frak Is It?!
This comes straight from the website at http://www.zf.sovietgaming.net:

Zombie Fortress is a SourceMod plugin for Team Fortress 2. Two teams face each other, the survivors (RED) and the zombies (BLU) who want to eat them. The survivors need to complete their objective, which is usually to survive a certain amount of time before they are all killed. When a survivor is killed, they are convereted into a zombie. When there are no survivors left, the zombies win.

Two distinct teams battle it out. The survivors (soldier, pyro, demo, engineer, medic and sniper) armed with weapons and several class improvements aganist the zombies (scout, heavy and spy) who only have their melee attacks and special abilities. The gameplay is similar enough to Team Fortress 2 that is easy to pick up but different enough to give a unique experiance.

SWEET! What the Fudge Do I Do?!
Since Zombie Fortress is a server mod, alls youse needs to do is install the maps we'll be using. You have two options:

Grab this hefty sac o' maps titled 'ZF_Maps.rar' here:

OR download them individually from the following URLs:

Then stuff those downloaded maps into your \Steam\SteamApps\<username>\team fortress 2\tf\maps folder.
