The Sixth Age
The Burning Plague is a disease spread by contact. Although generally transmitted by rats and vermin, by virtue of the divine magic of the orc cleric Jakk, it was made to sour the springs feeding the wells of Duvik’s Pass. The Plague has a very short lifespan, generally requiring an individual to be repeatedly exposed to it before causing serious harm. Its symptoms include fever, searing muscular pains, clenching of the throat and possible choking, fatigue and potentially death.
