|Name:||Lore of Contamination|
The Lore of Contamination allows an Earthbound to instill part of its essence into places and beings. All Earthbound may learn this Lore, since forcing their own selves onto others comes naturally to these monsters. As an Earthbound Lore, all Contamination abilities are High-Torment.
- Create Proxy: The Earthbound turns an object into a node that it can then use its perception and powers through. This evocation is extremely useful, because it counteracts an Earthbound's essential immobility.
- Lash of Corruption: The Earthbound instills its energies into a creature, harming and possibly killing it.
- Taint the Land: The Earthbound instills its essence into an area, making it come to life and attack intruders.
- Corrupt Relic: This power is identical to the four-dot evocation of the Lore of the Forge, this evocation allows the Earthbound to create magical artifacts, although they are automatically equivalent to artifacts created through the high-Torment aspect of the Lore of the Forge.
- Unspeakable Servitor: The Earthbound has its minions create a statue that it can use as a temporary host body instead of a living body. This artificial body lasts longer than a mortal body, but eventually it too will be consumed by its possessor's energies.
