Actions

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 1.5 m. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 10 Fortitude saving throw or contract a disease. Until the disease is cured, the target can’t regain health except by magical means, and the target’s maximum health decreases by 3 (1d6) every 24 hours. If the target’s maximum health drops to 0 as a result of this disease, the target dies.
