The Order of the Impaled

It has been a full cycle since the Apocalyptic Dawn, and the undead now roam the planet Scythe unchallenged. Society has fallen to the zombies, and more survivors are lost every day. A man who lost his family to the carnage has been driven mad. In his psychosis he has formed a cult that worships the Impaled. These undead worshiping lunatics call themselves the ORDER OF THE IMPALED.

Purge the Wicked. Cleanse the Soul. For it is…the Will of the Gods.
