Nurgle's Rot, or The Rot, is a strange disease. It seeks to turn its victim into one of Nurgle's Plague Bearing Demons. Unfortunately, the mortal form cannot take this tortuous metamorphosis, and must eventually perish under the strain. Only Champions and Beastmen of Nurgle are immune to its effects, serving only as carriers.
Victims gradually mutate until their characteristics are identical to those of a Plague Bearer, at the rate of 1 or 10 points (as appropriate for the affected characteristic) per month. Select the affected characteristic randomly each game month. The profile for a Plague Bearer is as follows:
As well as the characteristic changes, certain other physical changes take place, as follows:
|After 1 month||Skin turns pale yellow/brown|
|After 2 months||Green blotches appear|
|After 3 months||Skin begins to rot, attracting flies|
|After 4 months||A single horn begins to grow from the forehead|
|After 5 months||Horn fully grown, eyes begin to move together, nose atrophies|
|After 6 months||Eyes merge into single great eye, feet turn to three-clawed hooves|
|After 7 months||Face dissolves in a horror of melting flesh|
|After 8 months||The victim dies|
There is no known cure for this disease. It can only be contracted from a Beast of Nurgle.
