Cave blights are a species of radioactive underground-dwelling blights.1[citation needed]


A cave blight is pale brown, measuring seven feet in diameter and weighing 600 pounds.1[citation needed]


Cave blights irradiate the rock formations within their underground domain, which glow green and interfere with teleportation effects. They are adept at controlling aberrations to aid them against other intelligent life. Victims that die from a cave blight's sting are transformed into stone.1[citation needed]


Cave blights hate all underground societies, particularly drathnelars,2 due to their ancient link to the First World.1[citation needed]
