Hive of Disease. Each time a creature within 5 feet of the skaven to deals slashing or piercing damage to it, that creature is showered in pestilence-ridden blood and takes 5 (1d10) poison damage.
Multiattack. The skaven makes two attacks with its plague censer.
Plague Censer. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d10 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 7 (2d6) poison damage. If the target is a creature it must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute.
Only the most insanely devoted of the skaven plague monks are given the honor of wielding a plague censer, the deadliest weapon in the Clan Pestilens armoury. A plague censer is a hollow spiked metal ball attached to a length of chain. In an unholy ritual, a plague priest reads aloud disturbing and disease-ridden passages from the Book of Woe while a shard of warpstone is placed inside the cruelly-spiked globe. A ladle's worth of vile contagions is added, poured over the warpstone itself. Hellish runes glow as the devil's concoction immediately begins a slow bubble, sending tendrils of greenish vapours wafting out from the many holes in the ornate iron orb. Contact with the haze of noxious fumes emitted from a gently swaying censer will cause flesh to erupt into sores and fluid-filled blisters. When swung in the heat of battle, however, the censer emits vast billowing green clouds. Exposure to this plague fog causes horrific damage as lungs instantly fill with virulent fluid and vital organs putrefy. It would take a creature absolutely devoid of common sense to be anywhere near such a weapon, much less wield it in battle. Enter the plague monk censer-bearers.
