Highlights from the Dungeoneering Medicine Conference


In 5887, the City Medical Society hosted a symposium on unusual maladies seen among delvers and possible treatments. Here are a few of the highlights:

Spectral Encounter-Induced Cataracts: J.H. Shaxwell discussed a series of cases of cataracts resulting from close encounter with incorporeal undead. Shaxwell theorizes this is the result of negative energy exposure.

Care of the Soul-Dislocated Patient: Trelane Cantor described the care provided unfortunates who have had their astral bodies separated via thaumaturgy. Emphasis was placed on environmental safety.

A Case of Amathocosis: A unique pneumoconiosis resulting from inhalation of the particulate matter left after a demilich encounter was described by Nyland Tonsure.

Antibiotic Resistance of Infernal Acquired Venereal Disease: Villard M. Sturm warns that succubi derived sexually transmitted diseases often required potent alchemical intervention.

I hate it when I get a demi lich cough. I heard clerics have this holy water espresso that can knock it out, but they charge more than Starbucks.

Nicely done. Some very appropriate, and pernicious hazards of the adventuring occupation. Goggles, breathing masks, and condoms--don't leave the surface without them.

That's gotta hurt!

Negative energy = gamma rays? Who knew.

Antibiotic Resistance of Infernal Acquired Venereal Disease! Sounds very dodgy!!!

Trey said...

Thanks guys.

@Chris - Indeed. I like to stay abreast of current science.

@Canageek - Welll, a direct link will, of course, require further investigation.
