On the undead (Them Deeper Bones, design diary 5)

The dead walk

The Skeleton

Animated by otherworldly energies, skeletons are undead creatures often found near cemeteries, in catacombs and other abandoned places. If created by a magic-user, they follow their creator’s command to the very end. If not, they move on their own volition with a single-minded hate of the living.

The Zombie

Whatever is the cause, the dead walk. They are driven by the need to consume the flesh of intelligent creatures. Zombies spread their condition to those they kill and don’t fully consume, and if not kept in check, a few zombies can quite easily turn into an apocalyptic plague.
