This infection is named for its ultimate result, should it go untreated for long periods of time. A fuzzy reddish-brown fungus grows painlessly between the toes and spreads from there to the top of the foot over the course of a day. If not removed within 24 hours, the character’s movement speed is reduced by 5 feet for every day the infection is left to spread. It is only at this point that the character begins to feel pain as the fungus starts consuming living tissue and nerves, eventually leading to paralysis.
