**********Just for the sake of clarity - the theme for my A to Z posts is gaming with my friends in the 1980's.********
Z is for Zombie
Zombies are, of course, a well known and often used monster during encounters in D&D and other fantasy games. Whenever Zombies are mentioned now I can not help but think of the one time that several of us played D&D with an older brother of one of the group members.
The game session was a last minute pick up game because we could not get everyone together to play. We sat down and started listening to his introduction to the session that included army consisting of "legions of undead" controlled by a necromancer. I assumed that we would be encountering tons of skeletons, zombies, and other undead by the end of the session. We got in a complete session and we discovered just how many zombies are in a legion. I know the anticipation is killing everyone at this point! How many were there?
We made wise cracks about that for years. :-)
