One of the hazards of Xhuul is a Necrophagic Cloud. A remnant of a horrific biological weapon unleashed hundreds of years ago, this black/purplish cloud can turn anyone exposed to it into a undead creature. The undead creature loses all ability to use any mutations. It will attack any living creature it can see to feed upon it. Any creature that survives an attack by a necrophagic zombie will not turn into one.
A Necrophagic Cloud can come in varying degrees of intensity. Anyone caught inside the Cloud must make a Save vs CON. Adjust the saving throw by the intensity of the cloud (1-10). A failed save causes creature to suffer an Energy Drain of 1d2 levels. Creatures reduce to 0 levels becomes an undead creature equivalent to a Zombie. A successful save causes 2d6 damage. Saving throws can be avoided if the creature is equipped in some manner that protects them from exposure (i.e. force field, haz-mat suit, or magic). Saving throws continue each round the creature is inside the cloud.
