Creature Crucible: Mummified Wizard

"Mummies are preserved undead corpses animated through the auspices of dark desert gods best forgotten. They haunt old tombs and lost ruins."

These undead are so fearsome that any being seeing one must succeed in a saving throw versus paralyze or become paralyzed with dread for 1 round. When a mummy successfully strikes a victim, the victim suffers 1d6 hit points of damage and contracts mummy rot. Mummy rot is a powerful curse, not a natural disease. When under the effects of the curse, characters are unable to receive the benefits of any form of magical healing. Characters heal naturally at 1/10th the normal rate. This magical disease may be removed with the spell remove curse. Like other undead, mummies are unaffected by charm, sleep, or hold spells. Further, mummies may only be harmed by magical weapons, spells, and fire- based attacks.
