Thump. Thump. The thumping speeds up. A groan whispers its way to your ears and.. you all see, perhaps twenty feet away, a shape reaching towards you through the mist.

You can tell not much more than the general outline of a man..

Thump. He drags one leg, the other thumps down on every step.

Corvin peers intently through the gloom trying to discern who or what approaches. He also casts nervous glances behind them and in the other direction, mindful of the risk of ambush whilst they’re all focussed on the shuffling one approaching.

Increasing the pressure just ever so slightly that his finger has on the trigger, Max keeps the cross bow levelled as he tries to make out details of the shape emerging from the fog.

Without taking his eye of the figure as it approaches he checks that his sword is also easily accessible should it be needed once his first bolt has been released. Not for the first time. He wonders how easy would it be for an artificer to construct a mechanism that would allow a number of bolts to be fired repeatedly without the need for re-loading.

The figure looms into view and you can tell that it isn't friendly. Or alive for that matter.

The frame of what once was a man lurches at you. Time and what you think is like to have been a burial has taken its toll. Though this once was alive, now you can tell that you are faced with the dead walking.

Its jaw falls to the ground as it moves itself toward you. The scent of putrefaction assails your nostrils.

Whatever that thing was, Max didn’t it want it any closer to him than it needed to be. Holding his breath to avoid gagging on the stench he triggers a bolt from the mechanism.

Uncertain if his weapon was capable of dealing damage to such an entity Max has aimed for a knee cap. His logic being that this would at least stand a chance of dropping the being by removing its ability to walk.

Max feels the bolt fly true even before the ‘thunk’ as it impacts on its target. Exchanging the cross bow for his sword Max stands ready for the fight to get up close and personal.

The bolt sinks into the dead thing's leg. It makes no sign that it has noticed save a slowing of its already lumbersome pace. With what is left of its mouth it lets out a gurgle, its black shrunken tongue lolling around, and pushes toward you.

Sten hacks at the creature and it falls. A hush falls upon the dell again as the dead one writhes and slowly grows still.

" Sten Draugrsbane!"

Laila kicked the slab again even as the dead thing grew still, " So? We moving this before more dead men come calling?"
