Upon inspection, this bone ring appears to confer upon its wearer the abilities of the undead. After donning it, however, it cannot be removed save by a Remove Curse spell. After being worn, for 1d3 days the ring fuses into the wearer's flesh and cannot be removed save with a limited wish or more potent spell effect. Ressurection spells will not work for this purpose, instead they will kill the wearer (Will DC 20 negates).
- The wearer gains the Undead Type. His hair becomes white and his body on the verge of gaunt. His skin becomes pale and his eyes red.
- If the creature is in direct sunlight (regardless of any covering they may be wearing; this includes similar spell effects such as daylight) they gain one negative level for the remainder of their time in the sun. Their vision becomes blurred by the harsh sunlight, giving them -2 penalty on attack rolls, saves, and skill checks requiring vision. They also take 1d3 damage for every round they are in direct sunlight (and will be destroyed should they reach 0 hitpoints).
- Meanwhile, in the day, regardless of whether the wearer is in sunlight or not, they take a -10 penalty to their Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. They are alway counted as fatigued during the day.
- Any time the wearer is dealing with another creature, they take a -5 penalty to charisma, and unfriendly characters within 300 feet get a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls against him.
- At all times, the wearer has vulnerability to fire. This means they take +50% damage to all fire effects.
