Level 7 DiseaseDusanu Rot

This disease starts as an itchy rash, progressing as sickening sallow mold erupts from the victim’s skin.

Stage 0: The target recovers from the disease.
Stage 1: While affected by stage 1, the target loses a healing surge.
Stage 2: While affected by stage 2, the target regains only half the normal hit points from healing effects. In addition, the target gains the plant keyword until cured.
Stage 3: While affected by stage 3, the target regains only half the normal hit points from healing effects. After an extended rest, the target takes 15 poison damage that cannot be healed until the disease is cured. If the condition worsens while the character is at stage 3, the character dies and immediately rises as a dusanu. If already at stage 3 and the target rolls 10 or lower on their Endurance check, the target dies and rises as a dusanu.
Check: At the end of each extended rest, the target makes an Endurance check if it is at stage 1 or 2.
10 or lower: The stage of the disease increases by one.
11-15: No Change
16 or higher: The stage of the disease decreases by one.
