Cuts in Wilsmith’s arm reveal growths as black as the darkest night. These tumors pulse and ooze, and appear to almost drink in the light. They appear to grant the druid the ability to discharge necrotic energy and be healed by it. However, these growths get worse with time and over use, slowly growing over his body.
Common healing practices can be used to help stem the growth, but after a certain point, the damage may be irreversible. If this disease is allowed to progress too far, it will result in death, perhaps something much worse.
