Dangers of the zombie apocalypse
The zombie apocalypse has occurred in Aleria. At least now we know who the enemy is and where all the danger is, right? Well, as is common in an apocalypse the instigator is just the first problem, but necessarily the most dangerous.

Don't get me wrong, the zombies are definitely a huge threat. Not only are they attacking and killing every living being they can find. Their attacks are highly contagious. Almost anything killed by them becomes a zombie. Even as little as a scrape from a zombie might infect someone and then they will inevitably turn sooner or later. The zombie tide seems indestructible.

The previous wars in Aleria didn't help, but the zombies have destroyed any semblance of society still left. There are no farms or supply chains still intact. Even much of the wild game has been killed or infected. The food supply has been decimated. You and your people must find enough food so that you don't starve. This will not be easy.

Unfortunately, everyone else is in the same situation as you and they don't want to starve to death any more than you. With everyone fighting over the limited amount of food left, humans and even some of the more intelligent monster races are forming clans to protect themselves. Some of them are gathering together so that they are strong enough to take what they want from others. It is possible to become allies with other clans, but when they are slowly starving to death, will they betray you?

Even within your own clan it isn't safe. Humans living on the edge are even more unstable than usual. Some people are just bad people and will betray your clan for gold, food, or for no discernible reason. Some will have personality conflicts with others that might lead to fights and maybe even killings. Some might not be happy with their share of supplies and get angry. Two men might like the same female and cause problems. You never quite know how different people thrust into a life and death situation will react, especially over time.

And last but not least, Aleria has always been full of monsters. They have survived wars, famines, plagues, disasters, heroes, gods, and many other things that have threatened their existence. A bunch of zombies isn't going to eradicate them either. Their numbers might dwindle, but they are surviving the apocalypse and still causing the usual mayhem: wars, uprisings, attacks, etc.

So what do you think is going to be the biggest danger to you surviving the Zombie Apocalypse in Aleria: the zombies, starvation, other clans, local in-fighting, or the surviving monsters?
