What's that smell?

Everyone goes about their busy days, tailoring and smithing and training. Running about and play fighting as the children pretend they're knights. Banters and deals through the market. Though on just as normal as any day, the winds begin to pick up. Dark clouds seen at a distance. A simple rainstorm or thunderstorm, could it be? Though the wind brings in an unpleasant aroma.


Strange storms

Clouds roll in, the rumbling of thunder heard. Lightening stretched across the sky. It wasn't until the clouds were directly over that there was no sprinkling, but straight downpour.  Stray dogs and cats ran about to seek cover. Some villagers letting them in their homes for the time being. Birds covered the skies in swarms to avoid the storm as they moved away from the lands. Instead of that sweet smell of heat and grass as water spewed from the skies, there was only the smell of death. Reeking death.


An awakening

As many take shelter and someone hurries out of the door to the crypts, slamming it shut and slipping in mud. He hurried into the church. White as a ghost as he used all his strength to call out in panic, "One of the dead, it stood! It sat up. It stood!" The priest quickly tried to calm any seeking shelter there and asked one of the young boy's to hurry to the castle to let this be known.


The door is sealed

The guards and citizens are seen running out of the catacombs. One holding the door shut while priests and others help ensure its sealed. Many can be heard conversing at the Church as to what happened during the skirmish. The catacombs are sealed.

News shall arrive of what they have found in due time.

First Skirmish into the Catacombs

After the guards had lit the way toward the Church yard, some cheered at the bravery of the group that lowered down into the catacombs. Though later and they would see a rush of those same guards leaving. Two terribly injured and laying on the ground until they could be carried to the Apothecary.


Second Skirmish into the Catacombs

 A few things have become obvious now. One being that the torches in the catacombs, despite no one allowed down except for skirmishes, seem to be forever lit. The flames burning bright. After the scrolls found in the first skirmish, and more lay dormant. Making it seem like someone or something is placing them in eyesight on purpose. 


Third Skirmish

 Strange flesh creatures are found. Were they created or always lurked in the crypts? Whatever they are, they give stomach turning cries. The sounds of dozens of people begging for mercy in torture. Soon after, a letter reaches the mayor. What is to come of this?
