31 Nights of Halloween: Xombie for the Cypher System

Thetarene Xenodyne lost contact with it's West Santiago Research Station 17 months ago.  They chose to abandon it after learning of the full affects of the Phenosh VI or P7 virus that had been unleashed after an avalanche damaged the Station.

P7 was a biological agent that had been developed for weapon's supplier, Omega Apex.  However, a side effect was zombification of those exposed to it.  While Thetarne Xenodyne did send in a team to extract West Santiago's servers and several sensitive projects, they were met with zombies still in their exosuits.  Tough zombies still in their exosuits.

So now West Santiago waits for those brave or foolish enough to enter a tomb full of the restless dead.
