SPAWN OF THE DEAD
Bill Tanner reporting
After nearly 30 years of little more than minor skirmishes, forces of the undead have risen again in great number. Numerous zombies and their fell kin struck the town of Fenton, whilst splinters of this group caused havoc and panic in the surrounding areas.
The source of this assault is unknown, as is the provocation, though the prominent cleric Simon Haydew (67) suggests that those forces of undeath need nothing more than their innate hatred of life to fuel their hatred. Many perished in the first wave of this incursion, swept up in the surprise and ferocity of this strike.
However, it has been revealed that the attakers faltered in the face of the young adventuring band, The Fellowship of the Ming. These grand heroes, already making a name for themselves, engaged the leader of the beasts of shadow and emerged victorious.
With their master gone, many of the remaining corpse-folk became unfocused and easily dealt with, the foul magic that spawned them being broken.
Several other individuals distinguished themselves in the fight, saving many, not least the Lady British herself. Her presence, on horseback, bow in hand, was apparently a sight of great fortitude for the other militia defenders holding the town. Many heralded the work of her late father in bringing about the peace that we have enjoyed for the past three decades.
