Whispers from the Darkness
When the Bleak Breath came to the city of Kavapesta in 4249 AR, Pharasmin healers were overwhelmed. Burdrumar Roltz, a butcher turned doctor, joined the city’s few physicians, demanding high prices for outlandish treatments.
For a time, Roltz’s practices proved popular, and numerous healers adopted his dubious precaution of wearing a mask stuffed with herbs and Pharasmin holy symbols.
Although Roltz was later dismissed as an empiric who infected more people than he aided, today his masks are still used throughout Ustalav and beyond by both doctors of dubious skill and cultists of Urgathoa.
