Useful Info

Crawling corpses are the sad result of casting the Twisted Resurrection spell with corpses in your line of sight. These husks have no offensive or defensive capabilities, and will generally do nothing but fuse with each other, with macabre masses, or with small abominations. When there is nothing left to fuse with, they will simply follow you around, waiting for you to generate more flesh for fusing.

Tips & Tricks

  • Crawling corpses will happily charge through traps to follow you, and are easy pickings for any monster. Try to convert them up to abominations as quickly as you can, as you'll be wasting them if they fall in battle.
