Enact a new rule, “Remedies”:-

For generations, the people of Zahndorf have used a variety of traditional, locally-sourced Remedies to treat their illnesses, namely:-

  • Leeches
  • Mandrake
  • Nightshade
  • Red cap
  • Silver bark
  • Well water
  • Wolfsbane

Each Remedy may Cure one Disease and/or Cause one Disease, tracked secretly by the Doctor, and each defaults to doing neither. If a Remedy has never been Tested, the Doctor may Test it and announce in a blog post that he has done so: upon doing this, there is a 50% chance that the Remedy now Cures a random Disease, and an additional and separate 50% chance that it now Causes a random Disease. (These random selections are made privately using a method of the Doctor’s choosing.)

Each Villager may carry up to three Remedies, listed in the GNDT, and may carry more than one of the same Remedy. A Villager may give a Remedy they are carrying to another Villager who is Near to them, at any time.

A Villager may take a Remedy they are carrying by removing it from their inventory and making a blog post announcing this. The Doctor may respond to such a post by confirming that the Remedy has taken effect: upon doing so, if that Remedy cures a Disease the Villager has then the Villager loses that Disease; then, if it causes a Disease that the Villager does not have, the Villager catches that Disease.

Give the Doctor three Remedies, each chosen at random, and each other Villager a single random Remedy.
