"My Lord, it appears there is a mass of creatures heading directly towards the fort."
"Ha ha, it's probably just those blasted birds migrating again, my dear adviser."
"No... they appear to be... human."
"Oh god, more archeologists? I thought we left that modern life behind us when we built this fort."
"Wait... Dear God, it can't be! They appear to be... zombies..."
"Alright that's it, I've had enough of your crystal ball mumbo-jumbo. Everyone knows the only REAL magic comes from wands! Guard, kill him."
"With pleasure, my Lord."
The leader of the lookout patrol suddenly shouts down: "My Lord! There are people coming this way! Wait.. they appear to be green!"
"WHAT?!?" Unamused, the great magician stands up and slams the table in front of him. "KILL THEM"
"But they're und-"
"I SAID KILL THEM"
Suddenly on the horizon, a reaper appears with a horde of zombies from the west.
Then to the east, more zombies appear, searching for bodies to devour.
Their polar bear prisoner grows uneasy with the approach of these grotesque creatures, and begins to growl ferociously.
"GOD DAMMIT! Alright, I've put a magic lock on the armory/safe, they'll never get in."
"What are they doing here sir?"
"They're looking for something. An artifact I found before you arrived. The adviser told me it was cursed, but I didn't believe him."
"Well then let's just give it back."
"No, no we can't do that. If they want so badly, it must be powerful. And if they get their hands on its power, who knows what will happen? We must make sure they don't get it."
"How do we do that?"
The Reaper and his Zombie Bitches:
Retrieve the artifact. It is located in one of the chests next to the magician's throne. The other one contains explosives that were kept for just such an emergency. Opening the explosives chest will trigger the explosives.
The Legion of Boys with Bad Hair:
Defend the artifact, keep the zombies from getting their hands on it at all costs.
Objectives will be PM'd.
EDIT: Some notes of the battlefield:
The armory is assumed to have a roof, the fort doesn't have one.
There are 3 barrels on the battlefield. They can be searched through, and each contain 2 items.
I will also get a better shot of the inside of the fort, as there are some useful things in there
