‘So we are investigating why your cousin hasn’t gotten mail from here?’ Valance asked.
‘Yes, it has been months and his family hasn’t replied,’ answered Chalk.
Koram squinted into the distance.
‘Probably because they are all zombies here,’ the fighter said.
As they watched a huge piece of flesh fell off of a horse that was pulling a plow for a wizened farmer.
‘That explains it, let’s get out of here until we have a plan,’ Chalk suggested.
‘Fire?’ said Valance.

This odd plant grows in temperate forests. Brackleberry bushes are slow moving and aware of their surroundings. The berries of this plant cause creatures to become zombies, undead under the control of the rather intelligent plant. Zombie animals created by eating this plant become undead, move at 1/3rd their normal rate and are not affected by spells or psionics that alter or manipulate mental attributes. Humanoids eating the berries become standard zombies. These bushes often congregate outside of small hamlets and villages to lure in victims and create small communities of zombies that they manipulate for their own amusement, often having their undead continue to carry on their daily activities to attract more victims.
