Sickened, Rotting and Over soon…

The party are attacked from all sides by the walking dead, with Brick taking the brunt of the punishment. In short order both he and Thovar have picked up a ton of damage and a nasty case of mummy rot.

But of course the bad guys have reckoned without the mighty munchkin power of Artheon, who soon has the undead horde dancing to his tune. Though the battle is brutal it is also, after some early scares, one-sided; the reanimated corpses fall, disintegrating slowly into dust.
