Compendium of Conditions and Diseases


This reference book is a draft: it is unfinished and that should be considered when reading it. Special attention should be paid to text marked DRAFT, EDIT, or TK.

This reference book is part of a larger project, Teraum. Teraum is a tragically funny fantasy world to be implemented as role-playing game resources, stories, and radioplays. Teraum is a fantasy world in early and active drafting stages being created by emsenn. For more information, see

DRAFT Bartleby's Curse

Bartleby's Curse is a magic condition that effects any sapient creature it is directed at. It is applied with the waxy wand.


Bartleby's Curse has very minimal effects on the person its been placed on: the only effect they will notice is that reading, of any sort, will make them far more tired than otherwise.

The main effect is that anything the affected person reads will be "transcribed" by the waxy wand: paper held over its flame will reveal the text being read, overwriting itself from the beginning if the page becomes full.
