    I love this type of stuff, makes for some interesting gaming ideas.

    That is very cool, Mystic! I can't help but see images of Highlander when "kurgan" is mentioned. Wink

    However, I think the archeologists have got part of it wrong.

    "While the human remains had been disturbed by a robbery, which probably occurred in ancient times, and were in a disordered position, the archaeologists found that seven people were buried in the chamber. 'One of them was a chief and others should be the members of his family, sacrificed slaves or servants,' Makharadze told Live Science in an email."

    The obvious truth is that ancient tomb robbers disturbed the undead rest of the chief and his bodyguards who rose to battle the intruders. The modern looters were lucky the undead had been destroyed by previous intruders upon their slumber, or we'd now be reading about the mysterious deaths of an archeologist and his students. Razz
