The most important information when dealing with a bloodfiend infestation is knowledge of their weaknesses. Not all of us are battle-hardened warriors or mages with devastating magic, so to survive we must use our wits!
We tested the popular folklore about silver harming undead with its touch, and we are happy to report the wise women are right for a change! Hitting a bloodfiend with a silver weapon will stun it for a few seconds, which gives you precious time to escape. Stick with silver-plated weapons with a good edge—someone wielding a solid silver blade has more gold than sense.
