Upon opening a crypt there is a chance that the party will find the Grim Reaper inside. His overall attitude to the zombie apocalypse is indifferent.
A member of the party is able to shake hands with the Grim Reaper if they choose. Selecting this will cause the party member to be blasted with "Death Energy". This will reduce their maximum health to 'one', but grant the party member a level and an increased cap on their Shooting, Fitness, and Strength stats.
The Grim Reaper, Avatar of Death Itself, emerges from the crypt.
Grim Reaper looks around at the hordes and the carnage. It looks at [Character]. It shrugs.
Shake hands with Death!
ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU WANT TO SHAKE HANDS WITH DEATH?
This probably isn't the best deal for [Character].
Shake hands! Do it!
The Grim Reaper shakes hands with no hesitation! Making friends is fun.
[Character] gets blasted with tremendous amounts of DEATH ENERGY!
If Vitality > 1 - [Character] is killed! Well, almost. - MAXIMUM HEALTH SET TO 1!
If Vitality = 1 - [Character] feels really smug for some reason. [Character] feels EVEN MORE BERSERK!
MAXIMUM STRENGTH, FITNESS, AND SHOOTING INCREASED!
The Grim Reaper grants a gift!
- It is believed that the Grim Reaper is based on the Greek god Chronos, also known as Father Time. Often depicted as a skeletal figure cloaked in black, flowing robes who hefts a scythe.
