Gruesome undead templates are quick, easy options a GM can add to nearly any
undead monster, to create creatures with whole new themes and abilities. A GM can use these as
threats that are less familiar to experienced players, clues or elements for a specific background
story, or to just have new boss undead to be the focus of a climactic final battle.
All the gruesome templates are designed to play into a specific fearsome idea
or fate and provide an extra dose of horror for undead foes. Some of the gruesome templates are
inspired by the ghosts, vampires, and zombies of classic horror fiction, while others are intended
to tie into specific background or environmental themes. Each template includes all the game rules
needed to run it (including a new mechanic, shock value, explained in detail below) and enough
descriptive material and suggestions for use to make it easy for a GM to add them to an ongoing
adventure or build whole new encounters around them.
