Pulsing Puffs

A character who has taken a wound (or even a small scratch) that remains unhealed for any length of time may soon find small blue-white spores sprouting within it. These spores quickly grow into phosphorescent, domed mounds that pulse along with the bearer’s heartbeat. At first, the only effect of the growths is to prevent natural healing of the wound. However, if left untreated for more than a day, the spores take deeper root and begin to damage the character’s Dexterity. Due to the fungus’s beauty, some jungle tribes are known to cultivate it on the bound bodies of their prisoners.
