Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: What happens if the gem is lost or even the pc doesn't want to immediately use it and hence is stuck with this disease?


You can help D&D Wiki by finishing and/or adding flavor to this page. When the flavor has been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template.

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Diseases need saving throws and shouldn't ruin play for a player which changing alignment does. Diseases also shouldn't provide benefits should as becoming immune to a damage type or gaining a spell. Overall, the mechanics behind how this disease works needs to almost entirely be reworked.


You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.
