A Decayer is similar to an animated Skeleton but far more deadly. The Necromancer who raised this fell creature to a state of undead intended it to guard something important by being a living or rather un-living biological weapon. The Decayer emanates a deadly spore that if it infects an unsuspecting victim will strike them down within 10 days with a vile rotting disease.
In order to avoid infection an adventurer must Test their Luck within three meters of a Decayer or else they will develop the deadly symptoms of the rotting disease within the next ten days. Engaging a Decayer in combat will automatically ensure infection. Once bedridden only the expert help of a trained healer can a victim have any hope of survival as their body rots from the inside out they will lose 2 stamina points per hour until death. If their corpse is not properly disposed of then a new Decayer will be animated.
