The Chaos Horde (0.0.1)
 Days passed as Morien tirelessly took each body to a pyre composed of the unburned portions of houses. Everyone got a funeral.

 With his task completed, he turned to those who had returned to the living world. "Alright. Now that this is done, what do you say we hunt down the ones that did this and make sure they never do it again?"

The hordes of chaos tend to break apart after being defeated or completing a short term goal.

Wisla looks forward out into the world and sighs, "The sooner we act the less damage these monsters will do. We should make haste." Slinging her pack over her shoulder she looks to the others and awaits someone to take point.

Arashi rose from his meditative trance. He had managed to pluck a few of the hundreds of draws, cuts, and thrusts swirling in the tempest of his mind for the upcoming battle. He centered himself, focused his chi, and when he was finally ready, addressed the "Dreadlord".

"I too, am eager to use this second chance to bring balance to this forsaken world. Point us in the right direction, Morien."

His tone was calm and even, hoping to hide the excitement that was rising up inside him. His fingers itched for his blade and it was only thanks to his lifetime of discipline to keep his feelings in check.

Finally, Erin thought.  If they burned every body they came across, this was going to take forever.  Granted, they had the time now, but there were still those that didn't.

She nodded acknowledgement to the Dreadlord in case he'd meant his comment as some poll requiring a tedious vote from each of them before they moved on.  They'd collected a half dozen or so from the dead.  Erin wasn't sure because some, once raised, just stared off into space.  Whether their soul hadn't yet settled or gotten lost along the way, she wasn't sure.  If they remained rooted or shambled forward would give some clue as to their undead state of mind.

 Morien, having surveyed the city while he was about his work, led the group off toward the east.

 The ground had been trampled by countless feet for several miles, making tracking a simple affair. However, after another day of tracking, the group came to a large abandoned campsite. In the middle were several dead... well, they looked like men at a distance... but, upon closer inspection, it became apparent that they only resembled men at this point.

 Twisted and grotesque mockeries of a human form, with claws, tentacles, and other, less recognizable protuberances. They, unlike the people of the village, were not eaten... and the tracks through the mud split off in several directions here.

"What were these?" Erin asked, prodding one of the tentacles with her longspear.  It had been three hundred years since she'd died and their quarry may have evolved in that time.

Arashi scrunched his nose, unable to disguise his disgust with pity.
"I have never seen such a creature before."

He watched as the angry woman prodded
a creature.

"Are these our foes? Or simply more victims that have crossed their path?

Either way, he mused, These creatures hardly seem friendly.

His eyes scoured the area for anything of note while the others checked the body.

Wisla reaches down to touch one of the deformed bodies to find out what she could about how they died and who they were. Shaking a bit from what she might find out about them.
