Give Your D&D Characters Strange Diseases With This Brand New Supplement!

Keeping track of a character’s health in Dungeons & Dragons has always been important in regard to keeping said character alive. But the real world doesn’t come at you with hit points and healing potions most of the time. You know what your party needs?

Communicable diseases.

Thankfully, a group of medical students who love tabletop gaming thought about this, and decided to cut the world a break. They’ve created a supplement called The Malady Workshop, which will help your Dungeon Master come up any number of horrible ailments for you and your pals to deal with as you battle unicorns and flirt with orcs. From the Dungeon Masters Guild:

Inspired by the vast array of diseases, and the medieval myths that once surrounded them, we embarked on a mission; to enrich other worlds with fantastical diseases.

Enrichment! What a great idea. And there are both mundane and magical symptoms that these colds and plagues can visit unto you as well—how about a case of Fraudulent Nose to liven up your journey? Or a Fire Cough?

Get ready for your games to get a whole lot snottier. Sneezier. Generally grosser. If you want a better peek at The Malady Workshop, head on over for a handy preview.
