The Bat-leech and Light Allergy plot!
Current Status E10
Bat-Leech: large black wings and usually a head that looks like a huge leech. Pretty gross.
Known sources that hurt: Silver and Void
Known sources that debuff: Light
Can go into darkness to heal itself. Uses a lot of knockback and wounds.
Light Allergy: Currently we have a treatment formula that can be made by alchemists using Truesilver Crystals. Treatments can only be recieved every 6 hours, and the formula we have is equal to a double dose. The treatment delays progression, we do not currently have a way to remove levels of Light Allergy.
Components: The teeth, if found, can be used in weapons and armour. The mucous, if found, is used in alchemy.
Plot: The bat-leech had infected Hestian, and later Mithra and Karim. Expiremental treatments became available to us from a doctor who died trying to save his patient. His kit (phys reps and tags) are kept in the medical tent in the open on the table. We found out recently that the treatment eventually stops working, and the end of Light Allergy that we observed is turning into a bat-leech. The bat-leech hunter (Edith?) told us that killing the bat-leech would cure everyone who had it completely, as well as stop the batleech problem.
E9 we fought a bat-leech only to realize that there are seemingly multiple levels of bat-leech hierarchy. (Bat-leech beta, bat-leech alpha, and a Den Mother).
E10 the hierarchy was made clear, and a team was sent to poison the Den Mother with Truesilver Crystals, so as to poison the hive. Unfortunately, we did not completely poison the hive, and we ended up with someone critical.
Those who went into the hive now also have Light Allergy (listed below) and we are unsure what the next steps going forward are.
