Wise Man’s Ending, by Matthew Frassetti

Arthur ran as fast as he could, scrambling through the forest plagued by rotting trees and skeletal creatures. Bony snakes hissed, the skin rotting from their skulls. Arthur fled through the woods until there was nowhere else left to go.

“Death is almost upon you,” an encroaching zombie wizard shouted. The grand elder council paced forward, surrounding him. Arthur reached for his sword but was grabbed from behind. A sage tore away Arthur’s neck with awful teeth.

“No more heroes,” another mage yelled. “The age of quests is over! The zombie wizard apocalypse has begun. The world has gone dead!”
