Combat Behavior: Zombies obey their summoners’ commands and are often used as mindless work slaves. Free undead have a hatred for everything that lives, and usually try to bite and kill targets once they become aware of them.
Escape: Zombies do not flee. They fight to the last “life point” without regard for their own survival.
Magical Lore (Magical Creatures)
- QL 1: Zombies are slow and can be outrun. Zombies fight to the bitter end.
- QL 2: Zombies controlled by a summoner follow their master’s commands mindlessly and literally, and cannot be dissuaded. Cutting off their heads has no real effect.
- QL 3+: Zombies cannot climb or swim (but can walk under water). Sunlight is harmful to them and destroys them within seconds.
*) Disease Carrier: Zombies can transmit wound fever. Roll 1D20 for each full 10 DP they inflict: 1-3 (no disease), 11-20 (wound fever). If a hero is infected, the GM must make a disease check (see the Core Rules, page 343). For more information about wound fever, see page 126}.
Extremely Sensitive to Sunlight: zombies in direct sunlight suffer 2 DP (ignoring PRO) per CR.
Pack: Zombies attacking the same opponent receive +1 AT (no more than +4 AT) per zombie after the first.
Zombie Type: The stats presented here are for an average human zombie. Other types of zombie might possess other stats and abilities.
Undead Rules: Zombies use the general undead rules.
