When choosing to quarantine the hero, the "Too Late" outcome is guaranteed if the hero's natural lifespan was to end in the random 10 to 15 year time period. If this isn't the case, the "Benefits by Disease" is only possible if the Health Vial research was complete at the time the quarantine choice is made. If it isn't, the "Too Late" has a 40% chance of happening instead of 20%.

When choosing to allowing the hero to continue his or her duties, the "Broken Through" outcome is guaranteed if the hero's natural lifespan was the end in the random 5 to 20 year time period.

Start[edit | edit source]

Quarantine!

patient name has contracted a disease that the Capital doctors have never seen before! They're calling it Bumbosis. The symptoms aren't too severe, but they're recommending a quarantine because that could easily change and because it will take at least 10 years of study to figure out a cure. What do you do?

  • Quarantine patient first name immediately! We can't risk it spreading, whatever it is.
  • Let patient first name resume their duties. We can't afford to wait that long and maybe the disease will leave on its own.
  • Put patient first name in the Chalice and see what happens.

Quarantine the hero[edit | edit source]

For Your Health

patient first name is spirited away and placed in a lone house outside of the capital that used to belong to an old historian. This will be a lonely life, but with all of the books at least boredom won't be an issue, and you rest easy knowing that your decision probably saved many lives.

patient name has been placed in quarantine.

The hero will be unavailable for 10 to 15 years, after which one of the following will occur.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are five possible outcomes. How likely each is depends on a couple of factors:

  • If the hero's natural lifespan was to end during the 10 to 15 year period, the "Too Late" outcome is guaranteed to happen at that time. No other outcomes are possible in this case.
  • If the Health Vial research was not complete at the time the quarantine choice was made, the "Benefits by Disease" outcome is not possible. Instead, the odds of the "Too Late" outcome are doubled to 40% while the remaining outcomes have a 20% chance each.
  • If the Health Vial research is complete at the time the choice is made, all outcomes are equally likely.

Fruits and Music Doth the Body Good

patient name is no longer infected! A cure was finally created, the success of which the doctors attributed to a steady supply of apples and string quartets.

Too Late

patient name has passed away from Bumbosis! Unfortunately the doctors were not able to develop a cure in time, but they are adamant that they will find success soon.

patient name has been lost.

Rebound!

patient name is no longer infected! In fact, the cure seems to have worked better than expected! Since the doctors didn't anticipate this, they immediately try to run some tests, but patient first name politely declines. "If you so much as take my temperature one more time I'll kill you!"

patient name has returned and gained the Bumbles Survivor status.

Benefits by Disease

patient name has passed away from Bumbosis! Unfortunately the doctors were not able to develop a cure in time, but during their studies they were able to make several interesting discoveries that they believe will aid you on the battlefield!

patient name has been lost, but Health Potions will now heal heroes for more HP!

This outcome applies a 140% multiplier to the amount healed by health potions.

Passing the Time

patient name is no longer infected! The quarantine worked wonderfully and a cure was successfully created after the 671st attempt. As you welcome the old hero back, it also becomes clear that the books that had been lying around the historian's house were probably read at least twenty times each.

patient name has gained the Bookworm personality.

Have hero continue duties[edit | edit source]

Living Dangerously

Everyone, including patient first name, trusts your decision, but in passing you can't help but notice the occasional worried glance. The number of washbasins in the capital double that night.

patient name has gained The Bumbles trait.

The hero will be suffer from The Bumbles for five to twenty years or until his or her natural lifespan ends. At that point, one of the following will happen.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes. If the hero's natural lifespan ends during this time span, the "Broken Through" outcome is guaranteed to occur at that time. Otherwise, all outcomes are equally likely.

Don't Jinx It

Wonderful news! It seems that when patient name woke up today, the Bumbosis was completely gone and it shows no signs of returning! The doctors are baffled by this and immediatly inquire about prior meals and cleaning habits, but you know better than to look a gift horse in the mouth.

patient name no longer has the Bumbles trait.

Contagion

It seems that patient name's Bumbosis finally won out in the end! Unfortunately, it left more than one casualty. From what the doctors could tell, the disease used patient first name as an incubator to grow stronger and deadlier, and then only when it was ready did it become contagious. Thankfully the outbreak was quickly contained and it looks like nobody else will get infected, but you see the somber mood in the Capital continuing for quite a while.

patient name, second casualty name, and third casualty name have been lost.

The two additional heroes lost can be any other heroes in the retinue.

Broken Through

patient name has passed away from Bumbosis! The doctors have already taken the body for examination and assure you that progress will be made on a cure, but that doesn't lessen the melancholy in the Capital.

Outcomes[edit | edit source]

There are three possible outcomes, all equally likely.

It worked!

patient name has been cured!

Intriguing

patient first name jumps into the Chalice without a moment's hesitation... and never comes back up. As poles are rushed over to help locate the body, the doctors assure you that this result, though unfortunate, is very intriguing.

Monstrous

You know something's wrong when the water turns completely still. Suddenly, a mangled white hand reaches over the edge of the Chalice... patient first name has turned into a Wrinkler! Weapons are quickly drawn and used to great effect, but unfortunately the Pawn was able to cut down two former comrades before the final blow was struck.

patient name, second casualty name, and third casualty name have been lost.
