Gray Stag Rot

Gray stag rot, also known as the icicle trots, is an infrequent disease that occurs exclusively in snowy regions of Urndhyn such as Highperch, as well as the arctic tundra near those regions. It occurs when gray stag lichen, which is used as a reagent in alchemy and as an ingredient in cold moss tea, is improperly prepared before use, allowing acids from the algae inside the lichen to burn away at the stomach lining of the imbiber.

Although gray stag rot can easily be treated using alchemical admixtures, regions in which it occurs have very little access to the proper reagents or to merchants who may sell the potions (either raw materials or a completed mixture), leaving those who catch the disease to fall ill. Mortality rates for the disease are low, and the majority of those who die of the disease are children and the elderly.
