    |  Introduction.........................................................03-00  |
    +==============================================================================+
    
            This is, simply, a guide of the various contractable diseases in the
    province of Cyrodiil.  One has a chance of contracting a disease when fighting a
    creature that carries the disease.  Almost all of this is copied from the 
    Construction Set so it should be correct, barring any of my typos.
    
    
    +==============================================================================+
    |  Diseases.............................................................04-00  |
    +==============================================================================+
    
            Now to get started.  Listed in this guide will be the Construction Set 
    ID of the disease, the disease effects, and the animals that carry it.

    Effects: Damage Magicka 15 pts
             Stunted Magicka
             Weakness to Magicka 25%
    Carriers: Dread Zombie
    Notes: This one is particularly annoying if you can't cure it.  Stunted magicka
           means that your magicka never replenishes, so if you need to cure 
           yourself, you also need to take magicka potions.

    Q: How do I get rid of a disease?
    A: You can do one of the following:
         1.) Use a "Cure Disease" spell
         2.) Pray at a Chapel in one of the cities
         3.) Pray at the Shrine of Sithis in Deepscorn Hollow (requires the Vile
             Lair plugin from Bethesda)

    Please have "Diseases Guide" in the first part of the title so it sticks out for
    me.  You probably won't get a reply unless your email incites one, but I will 
    give you credit where it's deserved :)
