I am running Tomb of Annihilation for a group of players. They all wanted to bring in older characters (levels 9-11) from another campaign we had run a while back.
I did not allow the players to look at the book beforehand, but one of them went online and looked up the death curse. His character had died, so he rolled a new one. He decided to play a Wizard of the School of Necromancy, who has the Inured to Undeath feature starting at level 10:
Beginning at 10th level, you have resistance to necrotic damage, and your hit point maximum can't be reduced. You have spent so much time dealing with undead and the forces that animate them that you have become inured to some of their worst effects.
Does the Inured to Undeath feature prevent him from being affected by the Death Curse? Or does the Curse work because it is a plot device?
Should I allow him to be the only party member who happens to be immune to the curse, or is this a god-level curse, meaning he can't avoid it?
