Infectious BiteType: Combat
Zombie Cost: N/A
Okay, well, you don't know if it's some kind of bacterial infection, or a virus, or a magical emanation from the negative dimensions, or what, but the fact is: when you bite a dude, sometimes he turns into a zombie. It's handy for when you need more zombies.

|Effect:||Inflicts your opponent with damage over time and has a chance to turn them into a zombie and add them to your horde after combat.|
|You bite your opponent on the <solar plexus>, filling them with terrible zombie venom or bacteria or viruses or negative plane energy or whatever the heck it is that instantly makes them look a bit green around the edges.|
In the current and subsequent rounds of combat:
Your foe is wracked by sudden convulsions, and takes X points of damage.
Your opponent suddenly clutches at their head as a piercing headache does X damage.
Your opponent coughs up X points worth of green-tinged blood.
Your opponent stumbles and shudders as the zombie plague infests their system for X points of damage.
If the monster joins your horde:
With a sickly moan, your fallen opponent slowly gets back on their feet and shambles subserviently to your side. Sweet.
- Deals level × (Y + 1) damage each round, where Y is the number of times you've used Plague Claws (plus the number of Critical hits you've landed, if you have Virulence) since using Infectious Bite. Using Infectious Bite again resets Y to 0.
- Enemies will be turned if they have taken infection damage greater than 50% of their maximum HP by the time you defeat them. Physical immune enemies will only suffer 1 point of infection damage per combat round, but will be turned as if they had taken full damage.
- The following monster types can be turned into members of your zombie horde. These monsters can also drop brains when defeated.
- The following monster types cannot be converted into members of your zombie horde. They do not drop brains. They will still take infection damage.
