Porcelain Mask of Fu Leng 2

A Porcelain Mask

Porcelain Masks were imbued with dangerous Tainted kansen. When they were placed on the face of a dead human body, [1] it turned the corpse into a zombie, [2] a tainted undead that retained intelligence. The mask must be placed on the face to be effective. If placed on a living creature the victim became a zombie, retaining his abilities until he died. In this moment the bearer would rise as a normal zombie. [3] These masked zombies could understand more complex instruction than other animated dead, had a self-preservation instinct, and would fight to defend themselves without specific orders. They retained part of the skills from their original body. They remained animated until the death of the controlling shugenja. [4]
