Toxic dead are wights that arise from areas contaminated with toxic chemical, heavy metals, industrial hazards, and/or radioactive waste products. They have all the standard abilities of wights, including energy draining, plus the following abilities.

Acid Splash (Ex): The blood of the toxic dead is highly corrosive and spurts out whenever the creature is struck and damaged. If the damage is inflicted in melee, the person inflicting the damage must make a Reflex save (DC 18) to avoid being splashed with the creatures blood. If the save fails, the attacker takes the same amount of damage as they just inflicted on the toxic dead. If the save succeeds, the attacker takes no damage. Everything worn or carried by the attacker (including the striking weapon) must save (DC 15) or be destroyed. Magic items receive their normal saving throw bonuses.

Noxious Fumes (Ex): The toxic dead are surrounded at all times by a cloud of corrosive and debilitating fumes. Treat as a stinking cloud spell for effects. The cloud is a naturally occurring phenomenon, and cannot be magically dispelled.

Acid Cloud (Ex): When slain, the toxic dead release a cloud of acid. This cloud has the same properties as an acid fog spell cast by a 10th-level mage. All objects caught inside the acid cloud take damage from it normally. Multiple acid clouds from different creatures are cumulative.
