This mysterious curse has afflicted all creatures, spreading fear and panic amongst the populace. For informational purposes, the players can be made aware of the following:
• Any creature whose hit point maximum has been reduced to 0 (via life draining or similar effect) will die immediately.
• Permanently reduced hit point maximums cannot be restored.
• The dead cannot be brought back to life by any known means (resurrection, raise dead, etc.).
• Those that have been previously resurrected begin to physically wither and eventually waste away.
