Malus is the opposite of bonus.

So, instead of adding anything (hit bonuses, extra dice, etc.) you lose things.

I treat the word MALUS as meaning PENALTY.

But in this case we mean:
The term bonus-malus (Latin for good-bad) is used for a number of business arrangements which alternately reward (bonus) or penalize (malus). It is used, for example, in the call center and insurance industries.
It is a masculine nominative Latin for bad or evil versus good (Bonus)
