The Diseased Ambassadors

“Once great nobles from the neighboring kingdoms of Witton, this wealthy aristocracy struck by disease, flocked to King Tedric’s court when word of a cure reached their ears, negotiating willingly with their enemy in order to preserve their own lives.

Their prayers seemed answered when, by order of the King, the cure was granted to them. After being administered and even several days of healthy recovery, the nobles were found mumbling to themselves, filled with anger and looking terribly ill. Left poorly guarded, the nobles would cease to be human and devolve into macabre deformations of decay and disease, escaping the King’s clutches and into the wild.”
