Dread warriors are enhanced undead created immediately after a warrior’s death so that they retain at least minimal intelligence. Only warriors of skill can brought to the undead version of a dread warriror. As former fighters, dread warriors retain their desire to fight and are both strong and skilled. Dread warriors are armed with whatever weapons they carried in life, though they do not have the sophistication to use missile weapons effectively. Dread warriors are capable of following simple orders.
The evil group Red Wizards use dread warriors as guardians and troopers within war.
