Enigmundia: War of Plagues

A quick idea I had after listening to the recent "Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff" Podcast involves the cause of the holocaust in the semi-default post-holocaust fantasy world implied by D&D.

It involves a War of Plagues. Future posts will detail some of those plagues, but the snatches of idea that came to me:

  • mysterious plague doctors appearing at the time of an outbreak
  • plague(s) responsible for decimating or wiping out intelligent, highly advanced races or cultures (like the multitude of elf subraces)
  • plague memory responsible for the isolationist stances of some races and cultures
  • plague zombies are one of the feared plagues
  • caused heal & cure spells becoming so prevalent with clerics 
  • prompted mass potion creation for same spells 
  • returning to civilization still requires a benediction and cleansing by clerics (and a tax / fee)
That's all for now. More to come.
