Focus On: Undead creatures

The undead are humanoids who have died but where later animated by supernatural or spiritual forces. With some rare exceptions, all undead creatures are filled with hate and resentment towards the living.

UNDEAD TRAITS

All undead creatures have darkvision and are immune to mind, morale, fear, compulsion, charm, poison, paralysis, sleep, stunning, disease, bleeding, exhaustion and death effects. They are also immune to critical hits, level drain and polymorphing. Lastly, they are cured by negative energy (inflict wound spells) and damaged by positive energy (cure wound spells).
