Bluespit

This bacterial infection thrives in avian and mammalian lungs. The name is derived from the blue-tinged sputum coughed up by victims—at least until they finally keel over.

Type disease, inhaled; Save Fortitude DC 14; Onset 1 hour; Frequency 1/day

Effect

1d6 nonlethal damage and fatigue. The fatigue and nonlethal damage cannot be cured while the disease remains. This fatigue does not stack with itself to produce exhaustion, but does stack with other sources of fatigue. A victim that accumulates sufficient damage to fall unconscious while infected with bluespit begins to suffocate. Despite being unconscious, the victim is considered to be holding its breath rather than immediately progressing to negative hit points and death.

Cure

2 consecutive saves
