Fractal Etch

Circuitry-like traces spread across the scalp of victims of fractal etch, as the nanites behind this affliction scrub away the folds of the brain, causing loss of experience and memory.

Type infestation, nanite, contact or inhaled; Save Fortitude DC 18; Onset 1 week; Frequency 1/day


1 negative level. Such negative levels never become permanent, but as long as the victim remains infested, they cannot be removed. A creature that dies from this sickness cannot rise as undead.


3 consecutive saves


If the target takes 10 or more points of electricity damage from a single effect, she must attempt a Fortitude save against the disease's save DC. If she succeeds, the damage destroys the nanites. If she fails, she is stunned for 1d4 rounds.
