They appeared silently, without fanfare or chaos and confusion as one might expect. Unlike the demons who poured through the rifts howling and screeching, the rotting corpses and skeletons rose from the ground silently.

The undead grow in number every day, for every person that dies in the world today rises again in a matter of hours to replenish their ranks.
