Diseases will get progressively worse if not removed, and an afflicted character is capable of spreading that Disease to other party members.
Types of Diseases
There are currently three different Diseases in For The King, and each will affect characters in a different way:
|Disease||Stage One Effects||Bonus||Health Penalty|
|Chaos Fever||-2 Armor||+2 Resistance||-7 Max HP|
|Jungle Rot||2 Damage per turn||+5% Evasion||-7 Max HP|
|Stone Skin||-5% Evasion||+2 Armor||-9 Max HP|
Notes: All effects shown are at Stage One. Diseases do not appear to harm characters beyond these effects.
