Right everyone, let’s get into it. We’ve all seen the Apocalypse movies and here’s what we know:
- If you aren’t already dead, lots and lots of people are so there will be no power and no easy to obtain food or water

- If people aren’t dead or a turned into a Zombie they will probably want what you have and try and kill you for it.
- You’ll need weapons, skills and equipment
