Chronic Endemic Rotting Disorder


A more modern descendent of The Rot emerged in the fifteenth century as an infection that goes through periods of domancy and attacking the body. The symptoms are similar to that of its predecessor but often less severe and non-life threatening. It should be noted, however, that this condidtion is still extremely painful and debilitating.

Transmission & Vectors

CERD is primarily transmitted though conteact with fluids and open sores. The disease will create non-fatal open wounds that begin in the body's muscle tissue and extend out to the surface of the skin. These wounds can leak pus, blood, and tissue which is contaminated with the infecting organism. This leakage can contaminate those who come into contact with it, however, these sores only become contagious when the condition is in its active phase.

The condidtion also speads by increased aggression and irritability that causes the sufferer to physically attack others.


The symptoms of this condition follow a cycle of phases with individual lengths that very depending on the person — often ranging from three weeks to two years.

Phase One:

  • Sudden bursts of energy and restlessness;
  • tics and figity behaviors (usually scratching
  • foul odor of breath;
  • Phase Two:

  • Foul odor of breath;
  • dizziness;
  • shortness of breath;
  • coughing up blood and tissues;
  • sneezing out blood and tissues;
  • vomiting out blood and tissues;
  • crying blood;
  • urinating or deficating blood and tissues;
  • irregular mensturation;
  • hematospermia;
  • depression;
  • and extreme aggression typically accompanied by hitting, bitting and/or scratching of self and/or others.
  • Phase Three:

    The condition remains dormant for a period of time. This dormancy allows the body to heal so that when the parasite flares up again it can continue to feed on the host's body.
