2016 Curse of the Mayan Tomb

His name is Balem Yakte. His spirit haunts these ruins, deep in the rain forest. He is the legendary founder of an ancient Mayan city mysteriously abandoned over 1000 years ago. For 400 years Balem Yakte's dynasty of holy lords ruled the kingdom through hallucinogenic visions, ritual warfare, and human sacrifice. If the legend of Balem Yakte is true, then scientists believe he must be buried here within this massive temple pyramid, now a vine strangled ruin. Deep inside, archaeologist Dr. James Callahan has been digging into the crumbling pyramid, searching for the bones of the ancient King. After years of excavating, tunneling, and avoiding traps laid by those long dead, Dr. Callahan has uncovered a hidden chamber. His sacrifice to get this far has been great for many of his team did not survive and those who did are certain the tomb is cursed. In the depths of this sacred monument, he has discovered a disintegrating skeleton. Are these the remains of Balem Yakte? Is there really a curse on this place? Dr. Callahan needs your help to find out.

Attention: all civilians! By order of General Waller we’ve been commanded to round up any and all survivors who still show no signs of the Infection, caused by the Cordyceps Fungus. This is a rapidly spreading fungus that entangles itself in the brain, taking over reasoning and thought-control and severally impairing the motor-cortex. Infected persons cannot control their urges and will exhibit Zombie-like behavior. We are issuing a National Code Red. The whole community is now under extreme lock-down and all un-infected persons are being asked to report to the Maridell fallout shelter. It is no longer safe for you to be in the streets. Drastic measures are being taken to eliminate the spread. Because we have no cure, General Waller has issued an extermination order: we are to shoot any and all hostile civilians showing extreme symptoms of aggression. Please follow me to decontamination and processing.

Creatures of the Lower World

This is a dark place, filled with creatures that shrink from the light; the bat to the ceiling, the spider to his crevice, and the snake to his hole. These you’ve seen and so think you can withstand, but there are other things here as well, things that are not natural; beings that have lived in the dark so long they have mutated into something strange and horrible; creatures with an inhuman power of control over others. Smart too, smart enough to set traps for those unsuspecting victims who wonder into this forsaken place. After all, they must have food for the… oh, I’ve said too much! I warn you, do not go there! Those who look in its eyes never return!
