Created by necromancers to spread a plague of undead, the Plague Bearer looks like any other zombie. But its bite is almost certain to kill, and animate its victim.

Plague Bearers charge straight for the weakest creature within range, bite it once, then go for the next weakest. The only time it will stay to fight a single target is if it is cornered, or no other creature is visible.

Bite of the Plague:
A Plague Bearers primary purpose is to spread its disease as quickly as possible. Anyone bit by the Plague Bearer must make a fortitude save (DC 25), or take 1D8 damage every 2 hours. This continues until the target is dead, or a remove curse is cast.
Any creature killed by this rises up as a zombie in 2D6 minutes. The zombie that rises also has this ability.

I thought I wrote down 2 hours... anyway, I edited it.

Yeah, it is rather similar. But you could say that about most zombie movies, also.

Dexterity 7 is a -2 Modifier.

Seems like Constitution Damage would be a better way of handling this than Hit Point Damage.
