Vapors of Djerduth

Steel Realms

When the death gods worst rituals are enacted, and the end result is the creation of an undead such as a vampire or ghoul, such creatures have an effluvium of decay that cannot be countered, no matter the Essence they consume.

When such creatures become feral, their saliva has the power to “infect” the dead bodies they may resort to feeding off of. Such bodies will rise as zombies or skeletons that can be commanded by the undead creature that made them. They usually employ them to try and gain living bodies to feed on or to escape the environs that may have brought on their feral condition.
