Your latest encounter with the BBEG didn’t go as planned. Your Bard went down and failed their death save before the Cleric could help them. You’re in a difficult position. You could accept your loss and move on. Or, you can dabble in some necromancy.
Blight D&D dice are the tools you need for your new task. A little corruption here, some resurrection there, and soon enough the Bard is (mostly) as good as new. Except for the fact that they don’t seem to sleep or eat... and their eyes don’t blink at the same time... and they’re eating that squirrel raw.
They’re fine, right? They’re fine.
