This is really ONLY about survival, no sudden turns for heroics, finding out what's causing all the crap, doing your job, or killing the giant wahooga. Survival. You're hightailing your way out the fastest and shortest way you know or can find and not stopping to kill the evil bastard turning everyone into mindless zombie slaves, not going to stop the alien overlords from taking over the world, not battling through hordes of monsters to save your loved one or find the truth, not having moral issues on how you will feel afterwards if you leave someone behind (a.k.a. it is pretty damn good idea to leave them behind), and so forth. You're trying to survive, not save the day.

I can't possibly emphasize this enough, it's really simply just about survival.

And yes, this tag is very strict.
