  • Multiattack: The mummy can use its Dreadful Glare and makes one attack with its rotting fist.
  • Rotting Fist: Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 10 (3d6) necrotic damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw or be cursed with mummy rot. The cursed target can’t regain hit points, and its hit point maximum decreases by 10 (3d6) for every 24 hours that elapse. If the curse reduces the target’s hit point maximum to 0, the target dies, and its body turns to dust. The curse lasts until removed by the remove curse spell or other magic.
  • Dreadful Glare: The mummy targets one creature it can see within 60 feet of it. If the target can see the mummy, it must succeed on a DC 11 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or become frightened until the end of the mummy’s next turn. If the target fails the saving throw by 5 or more, it is also paralyzed for the same duration. A target that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to the Dreadful Glare of all mummies (but not mummy lords) for the next 24 hours.

3pp Variant Mummy Rot

Source FGG:CoB

Mummy rot first causes desiccation and then a slow decomposition.

Vision goes early on as the body loses fluids, followed by ever-increasing weakness. Death comes late, well after the victim is completely incapacitated from weakness. When a humanoid is exposed to the disease, either by magical means or through inhaling the dust of a former victim, the creature must make a Constitution saving throw. The DC for the saving throw depends on the power of the curse for magical contagion, and is 14 for breathing grave dust.

Mummy rot typically manifests immediately with a strong level of thirst. The victim must drink at least one gallon of water within a minute of contracting mummy rot or gain one level of exhaustion.

Every 24 hours thereafter, the victim must make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw. Each failure adds one symptom from the table below until death occurs. Two consecutive passes halts the disease but does not remove existing symptoms.

Remove Curse destroys the disease and heals all damage. A single casting of lesser restoration removes the most recent symptom still present.

Symptoms in order of appearance based on number of failed saving throws:

0 Thirst – double water consumption or gain one level of exhaustion
1 Gain one level exhaustion and lose 1d4 points of Charisma*
2 Vision reduced by 30 ft.
3 Gain one level exhaustion and lose 1d4 points of Charisma*
4 Blind
5 Gain one level exhaustion and lose 1d4 points of Charisma*
6 Gain one level exhaustion and Charisma is now 1
7 Lose 2d6 each of Constitution, Dexterity, and Strength*
8 Constitution, Dexterity, and Strength are now 1
9+ Lose 1 hp for each failed save until death *Charisma does not drop below 1. If Constitution, Dexterity, or Strength drop to 0, the victim is dead.


Wrapped from head to toe in ancient strips of moldering linen, this humanoid moves with a shuffling gait.
