Blowfat Syndrome (5e Disease)
From D&D Wiki
Blowfat can be contracted by eating 10-20 food items in 1d2 hours. If you are bitten in the stomach or stabbed in the belly with a poisoned knife, it may also afflict you.
Once afflicted, the disease lies dormant for D4 hours before Stage 1 takes effect.
Stage 1: The afflicted's belly becomes slightly larger. You gain 1+ Constitution points. This will last for 1d3 hours.
Stage 2: The afflicted's muscles begin to grow larger, but softer. Their belly expands once again. You gain 2+ Constitution points, and lose -1 Dexterity points. This will last for 1d2 hours.
Stage 3: The afflicted begin to become tougher and lose Strength as their belly becomes a potbelly and their muscles grow and lose tone. You gain 1.2x weight, gain 4+ Constitution points, and you lose -2 Dexterity points and -1 Strength point. This will last for 1d3 hours.
Stage 4: The afflicted's belly and muscles expand and soften once again as they continue to gain weight. You gain 1.5x weight, +5 Constitution points, -4 Dexterity points, and -2 Strength points. This will last for 1d2 hours.
Stage 5: The disease begins to infect the afflicted's mind, shifting their mindset. Your alignment shifts to Chaotic Neutral, if it wasn't already. You gain 1.8x weight, 7+ Constitution points, -6 Dexterity points, -4 Strength points, and -2 Intelligence points. This lasts for 1d3 hours.
Stage 6: Your muscles and belly grow further, eliminating any muscle tone the user has left. Fat centers towards the belly, making it almost immune to pain. However, your mindset further shifts. You now have an extreme craving for food and mead. You gain 2.3x weight and now have an immunity to piercing damage. You gain 8+ Constitution points, -9 Dexterity points, -5 Strength points, and -3 Intelligence points. This lasts for 1d4 hours.
Stage 7: The afflicted's belly and muscle growth slow down as they begin to enter Stage 8. If the afflicted has wings and/or a tail, they become unusable. You gain 2.6x weight. Fire damage is 1.4x more effective on you. You gain 9+ Constitution points, -11 Dexterity points, -6 Strength points, and -4 Intelligence points. This lasts for 1d2 hours.
Stage 8: Muscle and belly growth stop as the disease begins to enter Permanent Mode. There is a delay of 1 hour until Permanent Mode is entered.
Permanent Mode: The disease makes home in the bloodstream as the belly and muscles enters one last growth spurt before stopping. The disease is now incurable by normal means. The afflicted can no longer wear chest armor. If the afflicted has wings, they become permanently unusable, and if they have a tail, it fattens up and amplifies the weight by 20+ points. Your weight is now 3.5x times more than it was. Fire damage is 2x more effective on you. You now have 11+ Constitution points, -14 Dexterity points, -9 Strength points, and -6 Intelligence points.
Immunity and Treatment
Undead, elementals, constructs, and plants are automatically immune to the disease. Humanoids, dragons, and giants are especially prone to the disease.
Blowfat cannot be cured while it is dormant and Stage 1. At Stage 2 to Stage 5, it can be cured with lesser restoration with a spell slot of 3 or higher. Once Stage 6 is reached, it can be cured with greater restoration with a spell slot of 6 or higher, or a wish. Once the afflicted enters Permanent Mode, it can only be cured by a wish to a greater deity.
