A deadly disease known as Pestis has spread over the rich harbour town of Fontaine. It starts with a light dizziness and a lowered pain-threshold. Soon, even small stimuli start to cause tremendous pain until the victim is driven insane – an empty husk roaming the streets and inflicting violence on anything which threatens to get near it. The city’s chief medical officer, Marten Hoyt, thinks he can create a vaccine, but to this end he must figure out how the disease spread in the first place. He sends your party out into the city with a rudimentary antidote to find the source.
In this one-page adventure, your party has been infected with Pestis. In an act of desperation, you venture into to a city which has fallen into a state of absolute chaos. Can you find the original source of the disease? Can you cope with your progressing illness? Can you trust Hoyt’s antidote? After all, he warned you it would be “No Panacea”.
