Lycanthropy

Transmission & Vectors

Transmitted via bite. Some races are heartier than others when the time comes.

Causes

Lycanthropy presents itself in stressful situations. Being threatened or in a fight, in unfamiliar surroundings or just plain scared.

Symptoms

wretching pain followed by body contortions ending with a tall, muscular beast full of claws and teeth.

Treatment

There is no known cure for this curse except death.

Prognosis

A current carrier of lycanthropy can live a normal life as long as it isn't too exciting. Once life gets interesting, the game is on and very dangerous.

Prevention

Don't get bitten.

Epidemiology

Transmitted by bite when a pack of werewolves corner an unlucky soul who then manages to survive. They will live, and probably pass it on to others and the circle continues.

History

The story of the first Lycanthrope has not been revealed.

Cultural Reception

If the condition is in the open, the common reception is a swift death to protect the city.
