While you’re at it, maybe the local Tavern Owner can show your PCs the Posted Bounties, maybe lead them to the nearest Villain or Evil Wizard who plans on spreading a Fantasy Disease. They can even enlist some Local Heroes or Guildmates to help with that pesky Cursed Item..
Last week we had some fantasy diseases, but never fear, here’s some hope.

“There’s an old wives’ tale that says located in the abandoned city of Sette, deep in the Underdark, a colony of flumphs can be found scavenging. If you can find the heart of one such flumph, a remedy for that rash you have can be made.”

After weeks of research, Alexander discovered Hags’ blood. The blood of Hags from the island in the clouds had restorative properties. There are rumors that creatures that had ingested these hags are still alive, decades beyond their limits. Some rumors suggest the blood cures leprosy. Further rumors claim that a man’s arm regrew.
However, there is an underground society of people who protect these endangered hags at all costs. On top of the restorative property, the ingestion of blood leads to an insatiable desire for more blood.
