My son and me, arrayed for a glorious night of trick-or-treating that the bards will tell of in tale and song for all the ages.

Blightling Priests are the monstrous leaders of the Blightlings, responsible for feeding the hunger of the loathsome forest gods that the Blightlings serve as well as for perpetuating the Blightling race and the corruption that they spread to wilderness areas. Blightling Priests stand slightly taller than ordinary Blightlings, they dress in voluminous black robes, and they carry long, twisted cold-iron sacrificial daggers that drip with an eerie green poison (save versus poison or die in 1d4 turns).

Blightling Priests are granted magical powers by their gods, and as a result can cast hold person, cause fear and cause light wounds once per day each as a 3rd-level cleric.

Like ordinary Blightlings, Blightling Priests are undead (and thus immune to charm, hold person and sleep) but are generally immune to turning by a cleric, except by clerics that specifically serve deities of nature or nature itself.
