    Common Diseases

    As the name specifies, they are the most common type of disease to contract. They can also easily be cured however, either by potions or the Resist common disease effect.

    Ataxia – Affects your Strength and Dexterity. It is contracted from the Slaughterfish, Diseases Alits or Plague Bears.

    Brown Rot – Symptoms of this disease are most commonly insomnia and necrosis. It affects your Strength and Personality and is contracted from Bonewalker, Worm Lords or some Wraiths

    Chills – Affects mind and general co-ordination. Drains Intelligence, Agility and Willpower attributes. Contracted from Bonewalkers or skeleton creatures.

    Collywobbles – This disease affects your Strength, Endurance and Speed attributes. It may be contracted from a Shalk.

    Crimson Plague – Drains Fatigue, Acrobatics and Athletics. May be contracted from Infected rats.

    Dampworm – Drains your Speed, mainly. It may be contracted from the nix-hound creature, on repeated attacks and wounds.

    Droops – Mainly a disease which makes you weak. It can be transmitted by all forms of kwama (from workers to warriors).

    Greenspore – Affects the way you behave, including violent outbursts or mind effects. Attribute which suffers is Personality. Transmitted by the Slaughterfish.

    Helljoint – Drains speed and Agility. Contracted from the Cliff racer.

    Rattles – This affects your Willpower and Agility attributes. It is also contracted from some Nix-hounds

    Rockjoint – Similar to Helljoint, drains your Agility attribute. It is contracted from the Guar or Alit.

    Rotbone – Drains your fatigue, but is only a minor disease and quite rare.

    Rust Chancre – Drains your Personality and Speed. It may be contracted from rats which reside in sewage wastes.

    Serpiginous Dementia – Spreads erratic mind and behaviour effects. Attributes affected are Intelligence and Personality and it is contracted from the Bull or Betty Netch.

    Swamp Fever – Drains Strength and Endurace. It is contracted from some diseased Mudcrabs.

    Porphyric Haemophilia – An affect primarily associated with vampirism, and contracted as a result of vampire bites. Try not to get bitten, is my advice. Note that vampires don’t actually bite in game, it is contracted by just fighting one.

    Sanies Lupus – Similarly to Porphyric Haemophilia, this is associated with Werewolves.

    Witbane – Drains your Agility and can be contracted from Diseased rats, generally in the wild.

    Witchwither – An effect which Paralyses you and is contracted by some of the NPC characters.

    Wither – Drains your Strength and Endurance and is transferred by sea creatures such as Dreughs or some dreamers.

    Yellow Tick – A mild common disease, it affects your Strength and Speed. It is contracted from the diseased Kagouti or some wolves.
