Swamp Reek

Many folk tales tell of angered fey or marsh witches bringing this curse down upon those who offend them.

Type curse; Save Will DC 12; Frequency 1/day


The accursed reeks of the marshes, and is constantly covered in the fetid muck of swamplands. Anyone tracking this individual gains a +5 bonus on Survival checks to do so, except in an actual swamp. The victim takes a –4 penalty on Diplomacy checks, and NPCs that have an attitude of indifferent toward the accursed act as though they had an attitude of unfriendly. (The penalty on Diplomacy checks and effect on NPC attitude don't apply when interacting with natural bog dwellers.)
