Dysentery (3.5e Disease)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Name: Dysentery (Ex)
Infection DC: 10 (Ingested)
Incubation: 1-4 weeks
Damage: Sickened or nauseated, nonfatal

Dysentery was known by the lovely name of bloody flux (or simply flux) during the Middle Ages, and was a stomach and intestinal disease caused by contaminated food and water. Usually flux was an ongoing process as many villagers ate and drank the same foods, but a temporary illness could be caused by lodging in a "bad" area for a few weeks.

The usual symptoms of flux were diarrhea (occasionally with blood and mucus), and occasional vomiting.

If the PC fails the check by more than 5 points, s/he becomes nauseated instead of sickened.
