This is how the world ends. It’s December 21, 2012. You’re sitting in your non-descript office in a cookie cutter building in a city (Pittsburgh, maybe?) that’s probably not New York or Chicago or Las Angeles, no matter how much you wish it were. You’re dreading Christmas and having to spend another night with drunk Uncle Tony and you haven’t bought a single present. Turns out it won’t matter.
You have your radio on, and suddenly there’s a report about rioting downtown in the vicinity of the hospital. No reason is given for the destruction, no cause seems to drive the rioters. The whole thing is so undefined you assume it’s another Occupy Pittsburgh. But then you hear about mass hysteria and that the crazed rioters are biting their victims, and it all clicks into place. The Rising is upon us. Now it’s time to decide who you are going to be.
Starting tonight, I’ll lay out your six choices. These six people will appear in every zombie apocalypse. No question about it. Who you are will determine how likely you are to make it out alive.
