King of Undead All creatures that die within 1000 miles of The Dead Gentleman rise as zombies. All existing undead creatures must make a DC 60 Will Save or become his slaves.
Immortality The Dead Gentleman reincarnates daily, so that if you kill him he reappears the next day ready to kill you. The only way to kill him is trap him in the sunlight, keeping him there for 2 rounds. It must be light from a nuclear reaction so Megaton will do, as will simply grappling him and casting this spell with Earth as a destination, and sticking him in a fission reactor.

Strategies and Tactics[edit]

The Gentleman typically has his minions handle his enemies. If he must fight, he stands back, targeting arcane spellcasters first.

Sample Encounters[edit]

You first see a scamper of movement, then you see a skeletal figure in a white top hat and tails come into the torchlight, carrying a cane. He gestures to the side. The next thing you know, Lirianne and Amiri fall to the floor, and Sajan rips the arm of a zombie. "You were expecting a Lich, maybe," says the skeletal creature.

Ecology[edit]

The Gentleman is a unique creature. He is found in most planes from time to time, as long as The Sun is not strong at that time.

Environment:Anywhere not sunny.

Typical Physical Characteristics: Tall, wearing a White Top hat and a suit with tails most of the time. Generally resembles some sort of dead humanoid walking.

Lore[edit]

Knowledge (History) DC 50 The Gentleman is a sworn enemy of the Explorer's society. All his unlife,he has stopped at nothing to get a soul. Knowledge (History) DC 55 The Gentleman reincarnates every day, but burns in sunlight. DC 60 The Gentleman is not Undead. Rather, he is a outsider like Orcus, except his race is unique. If he had a race, they are long gone from the Great Wheel. DC 65 The Gentleman comes from the space between planes, remaining there until the first explorer Theomithillus came through a gate to a plane of cowfolk, and unwittingly freed The Gentleman.

Sample Lair[edit]

A Zeppelin armed with 50 rows of cannons. It is crewed by 150 zombies.

Typical Treasure[edit]

Top hat and suit with tails(90 gp), a staff with a skull head that pops off to reveal a Rope Dart that has Deeper Darkness cast on it, and 5d6 gp.

Signs[edit]

Unquiet Dead:

Faint:

Strange sounds come from graveyards. At night, 1 or 2 zombies walk about, and gravekeepers keep disappearing.

Moderate:

The air is infested with Gray Rot. Everyone must make a DC 12 fortitude save, or contract Ghoul Fever every hour spent not underground

Strong:

Gray Rot spores now cover the planet. Powerful undead now walk the streets, killing all who get too close. All light is reduced by one step as long as this persists. Only the Underdark offers protection from the Gray Rot, and the DC is raised to 15

Overwhelming:

Now, the Gray Rot chokes the air, and the DC is raised to DC 25 for anywhere but the Underdark, where it is DC 12.
