Day 1 - Thursday
Zauzad is the Jacksonville Undertaker on Gade Isle. It is a Thursday and Zauzad has been working nights the whole time. He heads into the village for a drink and sees living people for the first time in a week. Somehow he sees all the villager's life auras, something he doesn't understand.
Zauzad thinks this is from stress and tries to relax. He has a 3 drinks in the village pub, the Gator's Claw, but still sees the life auras. He goes out to find a new form of relaxation. Zauzad heads out to find the villages's one female sex worker, Ginger. (Raphael the male sex worker is from out of the village and visits Jacksonville one in a while.)
Ginger walks with Zauzad back to his hut, making small talk along the way. Zauzad pours them both gin when the get inside and they both get comfortable. As they are being intimate, Zauzad accidentally casts Drain Life on Ginger. Ginger screams as her life is drained. Zauzad the falls asleep after absorbing the life energy.
A few hours later at night, Zauzad wakes up and has a drink, and initially assumes Ginger is just asleep, and can't see the aura and relaxes. But then he realises she is dead, and he has a rotting from the chest where the life drain occurred. Zauzad also realises all the superficial cuts and bruises he had are gone.
There is a knock on the front door. Zauzad gets dressed and heads to the front door and sees the Jacksonville Sheriff, Ryan. Ryan says there has been a murder and asks Zauzad to collect the body. Zauzad asks for a moment to collect this things first. Zauzad is pushing Ginger under the bed when Ryan walks in. Zauzad lies and says it is Mrs Wilson from last week. Sheriff Ryan pulls out his baton.
Zauzad steps back as Sheriff Ryan pulls the body out when Zauzad attacks the sheriff from behind with a dagger and casts life drain. Ryan then hits Zauzad with his cudgel. Zauzad plays dead, when Ryan goes to arrest him, Zauzad uses life drain again and murders Ryan.
Zauzad takes the two bodies into the basement, then he butchering the sheriff into pieces.
Day 2 - Friday
It is dawn when he is done cleaning up the mess in his house. Zauzad then heads out to collected the murdered person Sheriff Ryan had been talking about.
Zauzad goes to the Sheriff's office to speak with the Assistant Sheriff Julian. Julian asks about Ryan, but Zauzad says that Ryan ran off into the woods after seeing a fire. They go to the murder scene. An older gentleman, Mr McGuffin, who was stabbed in the back. Zauzad carts the body back to the undertaker's hut. He then leads Ryan towards the forest and points in a direction.
Zauzad returns alone to his hut. He buries the 3 sacks of Sheriff Ryan underneath a grave hole.
Zauzad starts his normal embalming work on Mr McGuffin, when he notices something about the brain of the brain he can interact with. Zauzad finishes his work on Mr McGuffin and delivers the embalmed body for the funeral. He then starts digging Mr McGuffin's grave. During the day Mrs Wilson's funeral takes place.
At nightfall Zauzad is about to goes to bed. He realises what he needs to do. He makes a cut in his hand and draws a magic circle on Ginger's back. He then cuts a hole into Ginger's skull. Suddenly Zauzad drains a year of his own life out and into Ginger's body, and raises her as a zombie. Zauzad flees the room, not understanding what he has done and goes to bed.
Day 3 - Saturday
The next day Zauzad after breakfast heads back down to the basement. He bandages the cut on his had me made last night. The symbols on Ginger's back have disappeared but the hole in the back of her skull is still there. Zauzad tries to get on with his normal work. Assistant Sheriff Julian comes by with Mr McGuffin family to collect Mr McGuffin's body. Julian taks with Zauzad about how the Sheriff is still missing and Mrs McGuffin is missing.
Zauzad returns to his basement and realises that Ginger isn't rotting. Zauzad inspects her and sees more unnatural black corruption of the flesh. The corruption spreads into the inside of the body. There also seems that the nerves of her body has a odd unnatural crimson hue. Zauzad thinks back to his childhood seeing a puppet show the nuns had put on. He then reaches in a touches Ginger's brain.
Zauzad then passes out and is in control of Ginger's body. He panics and tries to wake himself up unsuccessfully, but he finds out that Ginger is now unnaturally strong now. Zauzad concentrates on mentally returning to his own body and does so easily. Zauzad has lost another year of his life.
Zauzad repeats the process and it works again, this time just touching her and not touching the brain. It costs him another year. Then there is a knock on the front door. Zauzad heads back upstairs and it is Assistant Sheriff Julian, saying a witness, Rodney, saw the Sheriff come inside Zauzad's house. Zauzad asks him to wait a moment upstairs so he can get sometime for him, goes back downstairs and takes control of Ginger again. He pilots ginger upstairs and attacks the Assistant Sheriff and snaps his neck.
Zauzad takes control of himself again. He head down the path to vist the witness Rodney. He thanks Rodney with a shake of the hand, and then drains life from Rodney, killing him. Zauzad sets Rodney's place on fire. Zauzad returns into his lair, waits for Rodney's house to get fully on fire, then runs out into the street, calling for help, saying there is a house on fire.
The fire is put out and the villagers are getting worried about all these incidents. Zauzad returns again to his lair and starts preparing in case he needs to flee Jacksonville.
Day 4 - Sunday
Zauzad heads into the village to gets supplies he regularly gets. The talk of Jacksonville is the missing Sheriff and Assistant Sheriff, as well as all the deaths recently. There is eventually at town meeting. Zauzad implants the idea that Ryan and Julian were taken by Lizardfolk from Gator Beach. There is talking of sending someone to Pinespur to get help to deal with the Lizardfolk.
Day 18 - Sunday
It is a quiet 2 weeks and no one suspects Zauzad. Some officials from Pinespur arrive. The investigators conclude it isn't worth sending people into the swamp to deal with the Lizardfolk, but keep 2 guards around to keep an eye on the town, and suggest a new Sheriff be appointed.
