Special Qualities: Undead

A crypt wight is a corpse given a semblance of life through a fallen spirit's love of violence and hatred. A crypt wight can drain the life energy out of victims by touch or blade, turning them into new wights upon death. Crypt wights may not leave their tombs and sunlight is fatal to them. They may not cross running water or salt. Silver weapons do double damage. A crypt wight appears as a weird and twisted reflection of the form it had in life. Wights are always evil.

Custom Move
When a crypt wight first drains you with its ghost blade or touch, ROLL+CON:

  • On a 10+, it fails and you take no damage
  • On 7-9, choose 1 effect
  • On 6- all 3 take effect as well as anything else GM does
    • All light is extinguished
    • You are ambushed by another corpse or the walls (GM choice)
    • You are shown the horrors of Undeath (GM will describe)
