Description

This poultice is made with purgative and cleansing herbs and botanicals, along with astringent and bracing saps and pulps. The holder of this poultice can anoint a creature with it, cleansing illness or plague in the creature touched. Remove Disease can be used in one of two ways:
  • Aid a Diseased Creature: The holder can use Remove Disease on an allied or willing creature to attempt to remove any disease currently afflicting it.
  • If used on a creature with the Infected condition (typically caused by a weak disease), Remove Disease immediately ends the condition.
  • If used on a creature with the Diseased condition (typically caused by a moderate disease), Remove Disease grants the target one immediate bonus saving throw against the disease with a +4 Arcane Bonus to the roll. This bonus saving throw is made against the disease's save DC, and does not affect the disease's frequency in any way, nor does it cause the disease's effect to tick if failed. If the saving throw is successful, the disease is cured.
  • If used on a creature with the Plagued condition (typically caused by a highly virulent disease), Remove Disease grants the target one immediate bonus saving throw against the disease. This bonus saving throw is made against the disease's save DC, and does not affect the disease's frequency in any way, nor does it cause the disease's effect to tick if failed. If the saving throw is successful, the disease is neutralized.
All effects already inflicted by the disease linger even after the disease is cured or runs its course. Existing effects must be cured as described in the "ended by" sections of the appropriate intensity for the disease (Infected, Diseased, Plagued).
  • Immunize an Ally: The holder can apply the poultice Remove Disease to any willing creature they touch. If that creature is not already suffering from one of Infected, Diseased, or Plagued, they instead become immune to the next single application of disease made against them, as long as it occurs before the end of the next encounter. Note that this immunity is not against a type of disease, but only a single incident of becoming afflicted with a disease (gaining any of the Infected, Diseased, or Plagued status conditions).
