Unfortunately, the Cachexy in DE is also pretty underwhelming and falls into the trap of making players pay an XP tax for making their character type playable. Besides, I rather like *not* connecting the Trenchers and Morbus more than they need to be. While there is some overlap between plague-carriers and the poisonous dead, I think their thematics are different enough that such a connection would ultimately be a disservice to both. Making Asphyx a set of Cachexy devotion would have required some overlap between the two that just would not have thematically gelled very well IMO.
