Crystaline Corruption is a strange and misunderstood disease, in which the body parts of those who come into prolonged contact with Sabaarian crystals see their skin tissue slowly change into crystal-like material.
DiscoveryThe first case of Crystaline Corruption was reported in 298 I.A, about five years after the town of Sabaar started to exploit the nearbye mines for Sabaarian crystals. A group of miners started to work in a particularly deep tunnel of the Scar and found themselves in contact with a deep purple, almost glowing crystal.
A few days later, the head of the mission noticed the skin around their eyes had grown rough, and on the following day their eyes had been completely overtaken by the growth.

I expected the worst. His screams could be heard from outside his house, the walls shaking in fear. But nothing could have prepared me to the terrible, horrifying beauty of the two blood red crystal eyes.
The miner died two days later, as the corruption slowly descended from his head to overtake the rest of his body. This first case was followed by many more in the following weeks, and caused a complete shutdown of the mines as doctors and merchants alike desperatly attempted to figure out what was at the root of this horrible illness.
