||These hideous, rotting undead creatures look like grisly cadavers infested with wiggling Rot Grubs that squirm in and out of their decaying bodies.
They attack with their fists and with each hit there is a 10% chance that the victim will contract a flesh-eating disease.
Potency (equal to the Gaxx's Endurance)
Onset Time: 1 week
Duration: Permanent until cured
Condition: The victim loses 1 CON at the onset, and one additional CON each month thereafter. When CON reaches 0 the victim suffers Death. Antidote/Cure: This disease can be removed with a Cure Disease spell of the appropriate intensity.
Moreover, with each hit Rot Grubs may (25%) burrow into the body of a struck character. Upon contact with a living being, rot grubs will begin to vigorously burrow deep into the body. Fire must be applied to the site of contact at once in order to prevent the rot grubs from burrowing further. This application of flame inflicts 1d6 hit points of damage to the location. If not stopped immediately, within 1d3x10 minutes the rot grubs will find the heart and kill their victim. The spell Cure Disease (of any magnitude) will destroy the rot grubs in a victim's body. If the Rot Grubs kill the character s/he will rise in 1d3 days as a Son or Daughter of Gaxx.
These undead radiate an aura of fear as per the Rank 3 Wizard spell (40 feet). Any living being that enters this aura must resist (Willpower vs. Willpower) or flee.
Sons and Daughters of Gaxx regenerate 1 hit point to each damaged location at the start of every round even after being reduced to zero hit points. They can only be destroyed permanently by holy water, acid, or fire.
