Weather Conditions
By Steven "Grafix" Gibbs

We made it to the oasis. There was no sign of the undead until we topped that last dune. They rose from the ground and attacked. The air felt funny like some doom approaching. Thatís when I saw the cloud of dust approaching fast. "Dust storm" I shouted to my men. Some heard me some didnít. In a matter of minutes it was upon us. Four of my men were knocked down and I lost one due to the storm. The undead lost quite a few but we still had to retreat.
