Safe Space You'll want to compact your living space into a manageable and small restricted area. I'd recommend your garage, an upstairs area/attic or basement. If you wife is not to keen on zombie-renovations, I'd select an area away from her daily activities, i.e. if she paints in the garage, secure the attic! As running water is not guaranteed, an area ...

Water and Food: These are easy. Spend \$60 on a Costco membership and you can get a pallet of spring water for \$360. That's enough water for you and your wife for 8 months if you use it for nothing but drinking. Then stock up on non-perishable foods that don't need to be cooked. Beans, canned fish (in oil for extra calories), nut butters, crackers, and ...

$3,000 is plenty of money to purchase concrete. If you have a basement, you could start by hand-pouring a simple "safe room". Any leftover funds could be used to buy non-perishable food. Surviving for 4 months in a bunker will not be fun, but is doable.

You have several concerns and the limiting factor here is money. We'll have to assume you're a handy person and can do your own installations. 1. Security. You want to buy a security screen door for each exterior door of the house (or at least one for the front and one for the rear and you can seal off side doors). These will run you about $300 each, but ...

This isn't a full answer. Just a little zombie-prepper advice which might augment other peoples answers... If your house is in a hurricane-zone then it probably has hurricane shutters or plywood that is ready to shield all its doors and windows. Tell your neighbors you are going out of town for a while and put them up "for security". If your house is ...

Pay some punk kid to break your windows a couple of times in the night. Convince your wife that the only way to deal with this is to get steel grills over windows and doors. Stock up on food and water. Buy a camp stove and plenty of fuel. That's pretty much all you have to do in practice. Your limiting factor is entirely about how much food, water, and ...

While the accepted answer is likely the closest to the truth and the most likely initial scenario as written, it's not going to make for a very exciting story. Or rather, it will make for a different kind of story. Note My initial reference for the countries that will spawn a dungeon will be the List of countries by population from Wikipedia and the OP's ...

I think an important clarification here is the size, class, and toughness of the monsters that can emerge from the dungeons. Separatrix is correct regarding initial containment if the monsters are things like Orcs, Elves, and Faeries, relatively humanoid creatures without much size difference or armor to withstand modern weaponry. If the second or even the ...

It would depend a lot on local policies, I think that the accepted answer works well for places where there is actually a military power that is organized and efficient, otherwise it would be chaos before there is actual containment. Take that one portal appears in 'El alto' for example (it is a city in Bolivia) which has a high density of population, the ...

Oh, we are going to science the heck out of those things! As others have stated, monsters outside are not a problem, just point an A10 Warthog at them. Modern warfare is lethal on a level that no dungeon monster can possibly compete with. In most countries this will happen in a matter of days. Then we will send in some brave men to establish a beach ...

Most of what these people have said is correct, although they assume a lot. Depending on where you put the dungeons and the first invasion, it can go a lot of ways. For example, if that first invasion is enough to cripple the society where it started and it killed a sufficient amount of people, there could be chaos and the time to set up a basic defense for ...

Separatrix's answer above is correct, but here are more details to flesh out the story Military will surround each entrance within days, and it will take about a month to build a proper containment facility. Basically a straight concrete tunnel with dungeon exit on one end, and a large number of guns on the other. Tunnel wall can be made thicker from ...

Assuming these dungeons have appeared in countries with modern military industrial complexes 48 hours to fully contain 72 hours for the first submission for planning to automatically turn anything coming out of the dungeon into food/fuel/other usable resource. See our previous questions on dealing with zombies where half the answers either put them through ...
