Mummy (Undead) (Guest Monster)
The inhabitants of Aranoch have long practiced the art of preserving the dead. As a reverence
to the deceased, priests fill bodies with preservative fluids, then wrap them in specially-treated
cloth, and bury them in tombs below the desert's surface. This mummification is
believed to provide benefits for the deceased in the afterlife. Physically, a mummified body
maintains its flesh and sinew for hundreds, even thousands of years.
Under Mephisto's manipulation, these honored dead have been summoned and bound with the
spirits of malicious demons to fill the ranks of his undead army. Instilled with eternal
loathing for the living, Mummies are stronger and better suited for combat than the zombies,
who due to their advanced decay, are weak and infirm. Mummies are slow-moving, but can deliver
powerful blows, often with the touch of poison from the chemicals used in their embalming.
Fallen mummies often burst asunder from their wrappings, leaving behind a poisonous cloud that
the living should best avoid.
Tips and Other Additional Information
When killed, Mummies emit a poison cloud that can affect both you and your minions. If you are
particularly weak against poison, you may want to consider carrying Antidotes with you when
Mummies have a chance to deal Poison damage on striking.
