Curing Disease


Rules Questions


Hi

sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

Currently I'm DM'ing the temple of the 12 adventure path, and one of the group has become infected by the carrion spores from the Ksarik encounter.

Unfortunately for them they have failed 3 saves and are now on the 'impaired' level.

My query is how they cure the disease, at the end of the session the character made his first save, does this move him back to weakened or does he have to succeed in another save to move to that condition, or does two consecutive saves cure the disease completely?

Thanks for any help

Remove Affliction can completely cure the character of any disease. As for natural healing:

In the case of a disease, the victim must fulfill the conditions in the disease’s Cure entry (usually succeeding at one or more consecutive saving throws). Each time she does so, she moves one step back toward healthy

So, in the case of Carrion Spores, passing two saves moves you back up the track a single step. Failing even one save moves you down one. You only get to make one save per day.

Yeah. Diseases are brutal. Thankfully, the end state of Carrion Spores is not that bad.
Your players are gonna want to take a look at Treat Disease for the Medicine skill. I am unsure if multiple characters can treat a single other character, but the bonus to the saving throw is untyped, so I don't see why not. Each one would need a medkit, though. I would assume that a character can treat itself, too, if they are good at Medicine.

Even if multiple Treat Diseases don't stack ( they probably shouldn't IMO ), there's always Aid Another.
