Actions

Fists: +5 melee weapon, reach 5 feet, 5 (1d6+2) bludgeoning damage plus 3 (1d6) necrotic damage. The target must also make a CON save vs. DC 11 or be cursed with a leprous disease. The target cannot regain hit points and suffers disadvantage to all Charisma ability checks. The curse can only be removed with a Remove Curse spell.

Worm Infection: +5 melee weapon, reach 5 feet. As a bonus action, worms leap from the son onto an opponent. If an attack succeeds, the target must attempt a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 11 to avoid infection by the worms. A failed save means the target takes 3d6 necrotic damage. If the target dies, worms will spread through the body and bring the corpse back as a son of Kyuss.
