The Zombie Apocalypse
Pockets of slavers exist throughout the countryside, but the largest, most powerful group is run by a man named Cholun. Cholun seeks to enslave all, but has particular ire for non-human races. A slaves status and duties are assigned based on their humanity and cooperation. Those taken with little or no fight, who are human serve as guards or house servants and actually have it better than most surviving on their own. This leads to many willingly giving themselves up to slavery. Non-human races such as elves and a few dwarves are put to work doing the worst jobs and are occasionally sacrificed to keep zombies at bay. Orcs are the most hated because of the Red Sands War and are almost always fed to zombies.
