Pneumonia (3.5e Disease)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Name: Pneumonia (Ex)
Infection DC: 24 (after long illness only, see description)
Incubation: 1-4 weeks
Damage: Sick or nauseated, exhausted or fatigued, possibly confused or prone, possibly staggered or unconscious

Pneumonia is no laughing matter. It is most definitely fatal in long-term illnesses. Pneumonia is generally a complication of other diseases (though it can be caught by it's lonesome) and causes coughing (with or without blood), chest pain, fever, shaking, chills, headaches, sweaty skin, fatigue, blueish skin, nausea, joint pains and muscle aches.

If the PC fails their check by more than 5 points, s/he becomes nauseated instead of sick, and fatigued instead of exhausted.

If the PC fails by more than 10 points, s/he becomes confused and staggered in addition to nauseated and fatigued.

If the PC rolls a natural 1 or fails by more than 15 points, s/he becomes prone and unconscious (effectively helpless) until some Good Samaritan drags him or her off to be healed.
