Rotghast is a creature in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Beware the drowned kith. Pity the poor sailors, the fishers, and the Chamelea-clam divers who in a stroke of ill-luck ingest the waterborne rotter - the parasite that takes hold in death.

Known as the rotghasts, these are the corpses that continue to roam, stinking and rotting, skin sloughing from bone while host's own innards flourish an infestation that steadily consumes from the lungs out. The first stage of incubation progresses as a welling of a thousand worms from the guts to the tongue, enabling transmission through regurgitation and watery-discharge.

Later stages of the nesting cycle involve bulging, easily-burst tumors, blackened blood, worms writhing through the skin, and the complete loss of motor functions.

Sadly, there is no known remedy save for the utter destruction of the body.
