Topic: Better Than Any Man - plague question

So in the adventure "Better Than Any Man" I found the mechanical description of the "plague". But I can't find any name of this disease or description of the symptoms...

Did I miss it? If not - what was this plague like in Your adventures?

Re: Better Than Any Man - plague question

The mentions I see in BTAM are on pages 48 and 72 where it describes its incubation period and then says to look at the Rules & Magic book for diseases. When you look there, it says normal diseases aren't really a part of the game for PCs, but the Referee is free to create them.

I would recommend looking up what the Plague was like during the 30 years war and just creating it yourself. It likely has an impact on constitution and then almost any action PCs take as the infection progresses.
