Ran into some questions about Putrid Essence in a game last night.

Since all the stats for this trinket creature are negative, and since his ability is to permanently attach to any adjacent (even wandering) . . . what is supposed to happen when he is a wandering monster himself?

Is he approachable and able to be subdued, hired or killed by a squad, or will he attach to them no matter what? We played it hardcore this way. It was weird. And seemed fitting with the brutal themes at play on our board at the time.

I assume that, if he's in your hand and invokable, that he can be sent out as a squad that can immediately attach to other wandering monsters (as his card indicates) AND even to a creature in an enemy squad.

Or am I totally wrong? Wouldn't be the first time. Happy to be wrong in this great game!

You are absolutely right. He is a disgusting stench.

You can hire and subdue it like any creature. It is attachable in the right moments a little like the blood sloth. It's more of a weapon or curse than creature, But it is alive which is why it has stats and why it is treated like a creature.
