Annoyed, Emerald walks over to the door on the other side of the reception area and opens it up, peering inside.

It's a spiral staircase going straight up. Emerald forgot about the tall steeple that he saw from outside. This is probably it right here.

Emerald checks the boxes at the base of the stairs. They are just full of more party supplies, like napkins, utensils, etc.... The vases are empty however, but Emerald assumes they would probably also be used during some sort of event.

Emerald makes his way up the winding staircase until he comes to the top.

Up here is a small room with nothing more than an empty table, a chair, a window, and a cord that looks like it goes up to a bell connected to the top of the steeple.

Oh yeah, and a corpse.

Emerald starts to look around the room to see if there is anything useful and as he does the corpse...

Turns to look at Emerald.

"Huh? Is it time to switch shifts al-"

The corpse starts, but then stops mid-sentence in surprise.

>Dex Check
>Rolled 2, Passed

The corpse seems to be surprised and confused and Emerald's appearance, and Emerald is just shocked and horrified and the dead body now talking to him, however he seems to recover first from the shock.

Emerald asks the undead who he is, and what this place is.

The corpse seems to regain it's senses and says,

"Uh... E-err..."

Your question seems to bring the undead back to his sense. The corpse then grabs the nearby rope and begins tugging on it hard, causing the bell to ring loudly.

"I-Intruder! Lady Elegance, I need help!"

(last of the night.)

Emerald quickly casts a push spell to get the zombie away from the bell. It causes the corpse to keel over backwards.

Emerald doesn't stick around long enough to see what he does when he gets up. The colt sprints down the stairs, only stopping with something when he collides with something near the entrance to the church.

Emerald looks up to see the shriveled face of the creature that was in the tomb below.

"What the- Hey, wait! Stop!" The creature cries as Emerald bolts past him.

In his terror, Emerald runs toward the outpost. As he does the soil around him seems to burst up as hooves claw their way to the surface as creatures of half-skeleton, half-decayed flesh appear.

Emerald quickly climbs up the ladder to the outpost and attempts to unhinge the ladder from it's holdings, but he isn't strong enough. So instead he hides himself the best he can while still staring out over the edge of the building.

The undead seem to be confused, and a few of them form groups and begin to talk, but after a few seconds a mighty roar comes from the tower in the center of the town, and a creature unlike anything Emerald has seen yet bounds out towards the undead.

it's entirely bone, and wearing what looks to be a leather cape of some kind. It has the skull of a pony, but that's where the similarities end. The skull has horns, and the body seems to be that of some giant clawed creature with a stinging tail.

One of the corpses approaches the creatures and says,

"Lady Elegance, what is going on?"

"I was hoping you could tell me that." The creature says, in a surprisingly womanly voice.

The undead from the steeple comes running out of the church and says,

"M'lady! I saw an intruder!"

The monster named Lady Elegance snarls and says, "Search the town, and a few of you fan out into the forest, he couldn't have gone far. Capture him if you can."

Emerald surreptitiously peers over the side of the outpost to see what the zombies end up doing. There is more than a dozen of them, and they break off from each other, a few heading towards the forest, while others wander around the ruins of the town.

Emerald sees a new person enter the pack, and with a shock realizes it's the raisin-like body that was in the basement of the church.

"Fair Lady, what is happening? I was having such a lovely nap when your roar roused me." The corpse says in a raspy voice.

"My apologies for waking you sir, but it seems we have an intruder." The large cloaked undead says, standing a little higher and gazing all around.

"Oh, that would explain why my key is gone." The new body says, holding up the cut chain that Emerald sliced, "As is the holy book."

"An intruder and a thief." The one called Lady Elegance says looking down at the smaller corpse with a slight growl.

"Shall we alert Lord Sepulcher?" The dried up husk of a body says.

"Yes, once we have something to report. I wish not to disturb him now however, he is working."

Emerald decides to wait a little longer and see if a path opens up somewhere else he can hide.

As he watches he sees the zombies shuffle from house to house, watched upon by the giant dragon-chimera-pony skeleton and the raisin-skinned undead. The pair of them never seem to wander far from the center of the town, seemingly circling the tower and watching the progress of the other undead.

Emerald notices that none of the undead that went into the forest seem to have returned. Are they staying nearby, or are they doing a nice thorough search?

Emerald watches as the undead round the tower and go near the farm. He hears one of the zombies say,

"Hey, anyone gone up the outpost yet?"

"No, I don't think so."

"Ugh, I hate climbing that ladder though."

The zombies stop to talk about and Emerald panics and looks around for an escape. There doesn't seem to be any undead nearby.

Emerald thinks that maybe he could jump to the nearby house's roof. It isn't guaranteed to hide him well, but it'd be better to be caught in the outpost.

Or maybe he should stick around? There are certainly less zombies now. Maybe he can fight his way through... Though he doesn't know what to do about the giant skeleton.

Emerald also realizes that he could probably make a straight shot for the forest, or even the tower, since most of the undead are over near the farm right now.

Emerald quickly makes his way down the ladder and bounds into the forest directly away from the tower.

He doesn't go more than a few meters in and already it's dark. Way darker than it was when he was walking around before.

It's just as quiet however.

Emerald looks for any light from the zombies who might be searching the forest. Come to think of it, he didn't see any of them carrying torches or anything. Maybe they can cast light spells too? Or maybe they don't light at all?

Emerald fumbles around blindly, looking for a tree he can climb and get an idea of where he is.

Unfortunately he can't tell how tall or climbable the trees are in the darkness.

Nonetheless, Emerald thinks he might have found a suitable one. It might be kind of dangerous climbing trees in the dark though...

(Last for the night.)

Emerald uses his light spell, and immediately there is an uncomfortable cry behind him. Emerald spins around to see some dark, hairty thing shielding it's eyes. It's got massive, sharp claws and needle-like teeth.

Without even really thinking about it Emerald throws his push spell at it, knocking it over. He then runs wildly away, not even realizing that he charges straight over the side of a hill, tumbling down quite a ways before ramming into a tree stump.

Emerald sits up, rubbing his side where he collided with the wood. It's sore, but he doesn't think he broke anything. His light spell is still active, and though it doesn't seem to reach as far as his light spell normally does. The first thing the colt notices is a slow flowing stream winding it's way through the low areas of the hill. He also sees what appears to be a small outcropping in the hill beside him that makes a cave.
