The Taint of Evil A Converted 5E Ruleset

One of my favorite distinguishing features of a fantasy horror game from a more typical fantasy campaign is the idea, prominent in the horror genre, that evil can be a corrupting force. Certain locations are suffused with the evil of the acts committed there, and setting foot in one of those places can erode your very will to go on.

These rules are a near complete conversion of the ruleset found in the v. 3.5 core rules Heroes of Horror, updated to work with your 5th Edition game with minimal effort.
