An outbreak has ravaged the inhabitants of gold dwarves of the good Rift. It begins slowly, however the development is devastating. One dwarf has eyes that experience develop into not easy and glassy like marbles; a moment dwarf has epidermis that flakes off in sharp, hardened scales; the skeleton of a 3rd is petrified and fused in position; a fourth wastes away with blood that has became darkish and muddy.
Clerical magic does not aid. Neither do natural treatments, nor spells intended to damage curses. And in all circumstances, demise is usually the same--the center blackens, hardens, and at last stops beating, killing each one sufferer with a center assault and turning the our bodies to stone.
It's referred to as the Stoneplague. it really is terrifying. And it truly is spreading.
