You got: You're ready for the Zombie Plague!

You are set to fight off the undead hordes. You know the ins and outs of surviving in a world rife with walking corpses, be it shamblers or the terrifying rage zombies. Grab a melee weapon, because the sound of gunshot draws the attention of both zombies and marauders, and head for a secure area with a small group of trusted friends. Preferably somewhere cold.

You got: You're ready for the Alien Invasion!

You are set to take Earth back from the extraterrestrial threat. Maybe they invaded yesterday or maybe they invaded over a millennia ago. It doesn't matter.

You got: You're ready for Worldwide Technology Failure!

You are set to rediscover how life feels without modern technology. Whether from questionable science or evil wizards, technology is gone and with it cell phones, computers, and cars. While your neighbors flail trying to figure out how to eat without refrigeration and commute without mass transit, you and yours are sorting out your garden, feeding the chickens, and fortifying your position against the soon to be marauding bands.

You got: You're ready for a Natural Disaster!

You are set to dodge tidal waves, meteors, and hot lava. Bring it on, Mother Nature. Armed with topographical maps and a borderline obsessive knowledge of the exact geographic location of the safest hiding places, you and your loved ones will repopulate the Earth. Whether taking the high ground to escape melting glaciers, heading south to flee from the new Ice Age, or emerging from natural caverns after the ash settles from the super volcano, you can take anything Nature will dish out.

You got: You're ready for the Robot Uprising!

You are set to bring that smarmy Skynet down. Who do these robots think they are, violating the Three Laws while thinking they're upholding them? You know you'll need the big guns, literally, and some friends handy at making homemade EMP bombs. Or find a way to hide your bio-signature and rebuild society underground while waiting to the opportune moment to wrest back control of the Earth.
