Warning, crazy disease related picture. So I've been sick. Hence the missed day on Wednesday. I wish I could say that was the only thing I missed that Wednesday. On the subject of diseases in D&D and other games, they're relatively rare. While there have been epic quests in fantasy to cure loved ones or other important people the disease related effects on players tend to be minimal. Like ability damage, no one wants to be out of action for long. Especially not the multiple sessions it could require to cure up the disease if the cleric's remove disease isn't going to cut it. More often they player will try to live with any side effects. Which is how you end up with an entire party infected with lycanthropy. But that's another story for another time.
