Depends on what happens with the Zombies.

Variant a) All Zombies attack and must therefore be killed -> the town is empty afterwards - no-one's there to trade with …

a.1 : The key to the only shop in town is lost with the killed Zombie
a.2 : The key to the only shop in town can be gathered from the corpse of the dead Zombie -> dice roll of what TDE knows as "fear of the dead", don't know how this could be translated, and/or fear of fiddling a tiny metal key from a really stinking, ugly, rotting corpse -> dice roll for constitution (or something similar) -> if failed -> vomit, if not failed -> taking the key succeeds (plus, maybe, a drama point for that char)
a.3 : The key to the only shop in town is lost, but the lock can be broken or something similar

Variant b) All Zombies must be cured WITHOUT killing them - which means the characters must use stealth and be very, very, veray careful (or simply running away by sheer speed). And then a REAL cure must be found - or even better : Be mixed through the combining of inmgredients which must be collected first …

b.1 : The Zombies must be lured into traps (cages ?) which hold them meanwhile the party is looking for a cure.
b.2 : Same as above, only with a limited time available to find the real cure.


That's what I'd be thinking of that.
And of course I'd grant the Variant b with MORE experience points, personally …
Or/and maybe even with something SPECIAL the party couldn't get if all Zombies were dead …

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
