Abrax Jaw Breaker (4e Disease)
From D&D Wiki
Abrax Jaw BreakerLevel 16 Disease
|One of the victim's teeth becomes host to a deadly parasite known as the deinodent abraxas. Left untreated, the abraxas spreads its roots throughout the victim's entire lower head and ultimately causes it to implode. Infected people will find an urge to bite others in futile attempts to relieve their growing pains. Toughing out this disease keeps the abraxas infection merely at bay. The only known way to actually cure this affliction is to remove the abraxas either through surgery or a purification ritual. This disease is known to affect only non-deinodent beasts and humanoids.|
Stage 0: Target cannot be improved past this stage through normal methods. While the target is at this segment of the disease the target only needs to make a DC check for this disease at the end of every 2nd extended rest, at any other stage the target makes checks normally.
|Stage 1: The target's mouth develops distracting pain and an unattractive bulge near the affected area of the mouth. They have a -2 on all Will saves and Charisma skills.|
|Stage 2: The target's entire mouth loses use and is permanently gripped shut through the abraxas tightening its vast roots. They become unable to eat, speak or drink.|
|Stage 3: The target's jaw and maxilla snap and crumble off their face entirely, leaving a massive gaping wound. The target is considered dying and can only be stabilized. They cannot regain any hit points until their wound is fixed.|
Check: At the end of each extended rest, the target makes an Endurance check if it is at stage 1 or 2.
