Black Plague

Necromancy School – Level 5 – Forbidden

Type: Normal Spell

Reach: 30 feet

Duration: Instantaneous

Effect: You release a deadly disease that can quickly spread to other creatures.

Choose 1 target within reach. That target must make an Endurance Save, taking 6d8 dark damage on a fail, or half as much on a success. You can also make that target take just 1 dark damage if you want it to survive.

In addition, a target that takes this dark damage becomes Cursed with a disease. While Cursed this way, the target must succeed on an Endurance Save at the start of its turns, or take 1d8 dark damage. If the target dies while Cursed this way, it becomes an Undead with the same Tier that the target had while alive.

If the target succeeds on this Save 3 times in a row, the Curse ends. A creature can also use a Med Kit as an Action to make a Medicine Check (DC is 10 + your Spell Skill), ending the Curse on a success.

In addition, the Curse can also spread to other creatures. A creature that starts or ends its turns within 15 feet of the Cursed target must also succeed on an Endurance Save, or take 1d8 dark damage and gain the same Curse.

You also lose 10 HP every time you cast this spell.

Curse: You are closer to becoming an Undead. If you die, you become an Undead creature with the same Tier that you had. You do not control this Undead, and it just mindlessly Attacks any creature that is not Undead.
