Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Adding your wisdom modifier to all unarmed strikes is questionable as in allowing all unarmed strikes to deal necrotic damage as monks only get magical unarmed strikes at 7th level.

The Undying[edit]

The Undying are a nightmarish species that are not born but created from the twisted willpower of those who pass.

Physical Description[edit]

'Vampire' By Gino Acevedo

The Undying have multitudes of needle-like teeth and pointed ears. Their eyes are sunken into their skull so much they are no longer visible and their bald flesh is covered with a thin translucent layer of skin stretched tightly in some places, and drooping in others. Their nose is stretched up, forcing their lipless mouth to remain permanently open. they are a horror to witness and will send anyone who sees them running in terror. As such those who prefer not to incite a panic generally cover up. (based on 'Vampire')

History[edit]

The Undying are a nightmarish species that are not born but created when someone's body dies but their mind refuses to, through sheer force of will they form a new body from the essence of the abyss and return to the plane on which they died. This is where their name originates from; they are the ones that refused to die.

Society[edit]

The Undying do not have a society, as rare as they are; Generally no Undying will ever meet another. They instead keep to the customs of who they were before death.

Undying Names[edit]

Some Undying use names taken from the culture they originate from, but many use Aberration names.
