Diseases in ME

In Medieval Europe it's possible to catch diseases. Currently three diseases can be caught:

  • Plague

  • Bleeding Wound
  • Tipsiness
  • Drunkenness

How a character can 'catch' a disease?

A character may catch a disease for a game mechanic, or from another character.

How a character can be cured from a disease?

Only a member of a Church can cure a disease, provide that the Church owns the correct Dogma Bonuses.

What happens to a character that is infected with a disease?

Every disease, after some time and until is not cured:
