Disapproval Table For The Carnifex
- Meditation: The cleric feels an emptiness where The Carnifex should be, and loses all spellcasting ability until he spends one hour in meditation. After reflection, the cleric realizes that the emptiness is the truth of his own mortal existence. The cleric receives +2 to his next spell check.
- The Pin Prick That Tests The Faith: The Carnifex reminds the cleric that everything accomplished in the mortal realm is done so through suffering. The casting of every spell causes 1 point of damage per spell level. Healing and turning count as first level spells.
- Minor Flesh Wasting Disease: The Carnifex teaches the cleric not to rely on the strength of his own body, which is merely a failed device. The caster suffers one point of strength, agility, and stamina loss, which heal normally.
- True Sight: The Carnifex gives the cleric a wonderful gift, allowing him to see the world as she does. All humanoids appear as walking corpses, swarming with worms and maggots. -4 to any reaction checks.
