Flash Fearsday - Turkey Dreams

Flash Fearsday is a microfiction challenge: write a horror story in 140 characters or less. If you feel that is too limiting, you can try for 140 words. Flash Fearsday was started at Porky's Expanse! but has moved to Lunching on Lamias. What will you create for the challenge?

The forest floor is peace.
To forage moving in grace and beauty.
Interrupt crackling rifle shot.
All is calm.
The heat rises and I sweat.
I am ready to be consumed.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's a bit o'Thanksgiving theme for your game:

Turkey Zombie Variant:
Use the quick zombie variant in the Pathfinder Bestiary with the addition of the dread gobble (SU).  As a standard action the turkey zombie can gobble a deathly blood filled curdle which causes a Will save DC 15 for all that can hear the call. Failure of the roll results in the target Cowering for one turn and then Shaken for 1d4 turns. A successful save means that character does not have to save against the same turkey zombie for 24 hours. Items, spells or abilities that dampen or cancel sound based attacks including the Bardic Performance ability will cancel this affect for the character.

  1. I like the critter, but the length of the fear is a bit much. 1d4 rds fear with an additional 1d4 rds shaken.

    Unless the turkey can't do any damage other than make the scream.
