Paralyzing Venom is a special ability of Scorpicores. A target surviving a Scorpicore's melee attack has a 20% chance of being paralyzed immediately after. Paralyzed creatures forgo their turn for the remainder of the current combat round and the two combat rounds thereafter, unless they are attacked meanwhile. Paralyzed creatures take full damage from attacks, but retaliate at only a quarter of their strength. The effect can be removed with Cure or Dispel. Paralyzing Venom is negated by the Recanter's Cloak and Cursed Ground, but not by the Orb of Inhibition.
