So the news spreads that the dead are waking up and consuming the living. You figure your respective god will save you right? So do millions of other people and they will be crowding the churches.
These pews will be packed so tight that the infected that get in will turn right in front of you. Your place of salvation will become nothing more than a slaughterhouse that will just further increase the strength of the undead enemy. If you want to ask for help from your god, don’t go to church. Do it from your safe house as once the infected get in the church and the doors are closed… it is only a matter of time before they start turning and those walls become your tomb.
Has anyone thought about this yet? They carry things like weapons and other goods and probably wouldn't be the first place to be looted during an outbreak.

I’ll team up with a few friends and loot many stores. but first robbing a bank becasue i need lots & lots of cash to really upgrade my armory. with our new found wealth we’ll visit a guy named J and obtain some serious hardware. the cash will be given to J, hopefully he doesn’t know cash is soon to be worthless. as a backup to cash we’ll hit as many pawn shops, jewelery stores, and coin chops for precious metals.
with our vastly improved arsenal of weapons we can go loot stores without any chance of being outgunned. (we can probably rob the police station no problemo) if anyone wants to try us we can turn any parking lot into Baghdad really quick. if i wanted to i can even raid a few gun stores, because we’ll easily outgun the people inside (with our vastly superior weapons) but I’d like to keep them neutral to us, in case i need reloading services or a gunsmith.
we’ll gather food & water first, then survival equipment, fuel, containers, new vehicles, tools, and a generator. then valuables, such as more precious metals.
we’ll make a move for the local mountains, I’ve found a place that would make a pretty decent base. we’ll go up there in stages, as there’s much people & stuff to move. first time there is to check the condition and kick anyone out that’s already there. then we’d secure the place and block up the road in. over time electric power and potable water will be made available, premanufactured housing put in place (not trailer homes), people moved and the home base established.
we’ll salvage the metro area every day, and make trade with whatever local populace that survived and are not our enemies (people we pissed off in the first few days of looting)
Once the initial outbreak has spread and the military responds, what happens? Will they all even show up or run off to help out their own families? Would they know how to contain the problem? Would they even be able to make a difference, at that point? What are your thoughts on this?
