The Taint

Darkness has covered the land. The Warlord’s oppressive rule has tainted everything from the landscape to the people. It is an bad time, where evil is rewarded and innocence is being stripped away from all. An illness has began to seep into the very fabric of the country. It’s symptoms are depravity and corruption. Scholars have begun calling this sickness “The Taint.” No creature seems to be immune to the ravages of this disease. People are growing sickly and madness is burrowing it’s way into the thoughts of the creatures of the land. Developing disgusting mutations along the way.

The Taint: Two different symptoms of the taint has manifested itself in creatures of the land. Depravity; the poisoning of ones own mental health, and Corruption; the physical traits that are warped through the taint. Each creature has a depravity threshold and a corruption threshold. These values indicate the maximum level of taint a creature is able to withstand before either going insane (through depravity and becoming an NPC) or dying (through corruption, most likely become an undead after death.)For every 5 points of either corruption or depravity, you gain a corruption symptom or a depravity symptom respectively, and gain additional symptoms per 5 points of corruption or depravity.
