Snail Sickness

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Snail Sickness, as it is known, is a parasitic infection in which the host drinks infected water. Resulting in snail larva infesting the body. As the larva move towards the upper dermal layers, the larvae’s shells grow. Eventually, as the shells increase in size, they make visible and painful bumps on the skin of the victim. The pinnacle of this event are these bumps bursting as the shells grow to their final size, and the snails leaving the corpse to consume it and move on.

It is one of the most common illnesses known to the realms. While it may be highly dangerous with creatures of weaker hide, organisms with strong hides or plating are invulnerable. If the snails do not exit the body in time, they will die.

The parasitic snails that leave the body are considered edible, and some groups have dedicated themselves to harvesting them. Non-affluent entities are often harvested and placed into “Snail-Farms” where they are forced to birth these horrible entities.

Symptoms

The first stage of the infection, days or hours after the parasitic larva are accidentally or intentionally consumed, the host can suffer from throat pains, nosebleeds, and in some cases extreme migraines and abdominal pain.

In the second stage, circular bruises appear around the body, which is the precursor to the shellbumps seen during the third and final stage. In addition, extreme muscle atrophy follows. Along with hemovomiting and projectile diarrhea.

In the third stage, the bruises swell into large boils as the snailshells grow. This results in unfathomable pain, and oftentimes suicidal tendencies. Previous symptoms are exaggerated, which in of itself may result in death.

In the final stage, the blisters burst and the snails emerge. Resulting in almost instant death as the snails begin to feed on the body. Minutes before the blister rupturing, extreme convulsions and exsanguination via the orifices may occur.
