Balzac has managed to knock the trumpet away from Turner, who struggles vainly to retrieve it. He is interrupted though by the sight of his former girlfriend scrabbling through the earth of her grave. The sight of her wrinkled, dessicated face, the teeth bared in a ferocious grimace as the skin has been pulled back from her mouth, eyes sunken in their sockets, makes Turner scream in anguish. Marnie groans as she sees her lover, and moves towards him.

Around the companions, six other corpses have also animated. Their screams and groans are almost unbearable, as to their horror they realize their predicament. In what little comprehension they have, they seek to search out the living who have wronged them, wanting vengeance on those who have failed them.

"Oh, right," mutters Ron. "I don't suppose anyone else brought a gun along?"

He looks about him for something that could be used as a makeshift weapon.

Isadora reaches out and tries to grab the trumpet. Then she sets off running into the direction of the cemetery exit.

"We cannot stay! RUN!"

Balzac frantically racks his brain, trying to imagine what point of a decomposing corpse would be weakest, the head, the limbs, the spine?

He gets up and tries to dodge around the moving deceased as best he can, trying to get out.

Spoiler:
Can Balzac make a medicine roll to try to identify what part of a decomposing corpse would be - ah - softest?
(Yick.)

Spoiler:
Poor Alice! I'm going to suggest that she develops an aversion to dead bodies, which might develop into a phobia.
It seems that everyone wants to run away, Isadora taking the trumpet. Is Ron going to stay and fight? There are no weapons available.

OOC:   FIghting corpses bare handed is a bit rash even for Ron, he'll flee.

The heroes turn and flee back to the entrance, Isadora clutching the horn, and Henry supporting the petrified Alice. Turner remains, and the companions can hear his screams as Marnie advances on him.

One of the undead has moved to block the way, however. Can they escape past him?

Spoiler:
Luck rolls please!

Henry's roll was higher, so the undead targets him.
Undead Fellow Grapple 25: Grapple: 1d100 45


With an awful groan, the undead reaches his wizened claw of a hand and tries to grab Henry's jacket. Luckily, he doesn’t get hold of it.

You can make an attack, or keep fleeing.

Benny looks at the companions’ faces as they pile into the cab, and shakes his head.

“I don’t wanna ask” he says. “By God, you people are gonna owe me.”

The cab pulls away, leaving the cemetery behind.
