0004874: Brain "completely impaired" by syndrome, but creature can still move/fight
Syndromes with IMPAIR_FUNCTION that completely impair the brain aren't immediately lethal; the affected creature can still move and fight for a short while (the same effect as having a broken spine) before suffocation.

Create or mod a creature for giving a syndrome impairing the brain like this:

For example modding a Giant Desert Scorpion to have:


    [SYN_NAME:giant desert scorpion sting]





Then test it against a creature in the arena. The brain will be affected quickly, but death will only occur by suffocation.
No tags attached.
