THE MAGIC

UNDYING

The Undying are cursed humans who are forced to feed on human blood. They look the same, other than a sharp pair of fangs which do not show unless they show their teeth and a brand (an ancient death magic rune) that is placed somewhere on their bodies (an example of which can be found on the right). Their blood does not run, as their heart does not beat, meaning their bodies are kept in some sort of stasis which also causes their appearance not to change throughout the years.

All of the Undying were once mortal humans but turned immortal when they got cursed by another Undying, losing their magic in the process. Their curse is bound to their brand/mark. Their mental state is always a bit unstable but worsens if no blood is consumed. They are faster and stronger than the average human, even more so when just fed. While their existence is shrouded in mystery and most of the people in Avalance believe they only exist in stories, the Undying do not just stick to one area. They are rare but appear all over Avalance. The place most famous for its stories and sightings of the Undying is the Cursed Reach.

STAGES

The Undying do not have to drink water or eat any foods. They can, but it tastes of nothing. They survive on human blood only. If they refuse to drink human blood, they will sink further away into madness, losing more of their humanity and becoming more beast-like. At the final stage, at which they become unplayable, they turn into monsters (take wendigo’s as an example for looks). These monsters have lost all humanity and the person becomes trapped inside, suffering for eternity. These final stage Undying are very aggressive and will attack any humans that get noticed.

CURSING

Only the Undying can curse a mortal to become one of them. The only living being that once managed this was the bone sorcerer that created the first Undying. When they are cursed, they gain the knowledge to pass on that curse. To do so, the brand has to be carved into the flesh of a living person, while speaking the curse. The blood of the Undying is dripped into the brand and the mortal is left to fever dreams for the next day. When they escape from their dreams, the curse is complete, and another Undying is born. It is not uncommon for people to die in the process, mostly being referred to as too weak to become one of them. While the blood of another Undying is used during the cursing ceremony, it has no magical properties whatsoever. It is only in combination with the freshly carved brand and the right words that it starts the creation process of new Undying.

WEAKNESSES

The Undying are immortal, meaning they do not age once they are cursed and they are not vulnerable to most of the things that kill a mortal, like wounds or deceases. There are, however, a few things that can destroy an Undying, even if they have entered the final stage and turned into a monster. Dragons are the most effective killers of Undying. Their fire, frostbreath and venom all affect the bodies of the Undying and will kill them in an instant. Normal fire can work too, while a normal torch will not do the job, burning a house down or strapping one to a big bonfire will.

Undying are not capable of growing back completely severed limbs. As long as there is something holding two parts together, their wounds will heal fast and close the gap. If, for example, a hand is completely cut off, the wound will simply begin to heal in a way that closes the arm and the Undying will have to live without their hand. If a brand is cut off this way, it will appear on another part of the body. Only with the full separation of the head from the body will the Undying pass away. This does not work in the case of Last Stage Undying. They can grow back all limbs and are only to be killed by dragons or by large fires. The growing of limbs is a slow process, however, starting with the bones and building its way up to the skin slowly over the course of months.

Important note: Because the first Undying was made in 726 and he made a second in 803 which started the spread of the curse, Undying on this forum can be a max of 475 years old, hailing from these first groups spreading in 804.
