It is the day after tomorrow, humanity is dying, and the zombie race is taking over the land. You have survived the initial cataclysm and now you must survive with what little skills and talents you have. Your first order of business is to find tools and weapons. But be quick about it, the zombies are approaching, you can hear them in the distance. Then you need to decide what to do next. You can flit from house to house in the neighborhood, hoping to not run into any trouble. You can hit up a library, and read some books to increase your skills. If you are lucky, you may know of a compound nearby where survivors are gathering. If not, you may want to start hiking. But remember, zombies aren't the only things out there. Just be sure to bring provisions.
Also remember to keep your spirits up! If you don't you will never survive. Without good spirits you won't have the gumption to learn or do anything productive at all! After all, what is the point in existing in such a saddened state?
But if you can survive you will become inured to the hardships, and may find exciting things such as bionics, which can give you amazing powers not usually seen in mortal hands. Or if you are really lucky, you may find a radioactive site, decide to chance fate, and gain a mutation. Usually bad, but sometimes very very good. Who knows, the choice is yours.
