Bone rot is a disease that can cause bones to become brittle and rot away. It is prevalent in swamp areas containing the dead, particularly graveyards and battlefields.[1]

The disease is contracted through contact and has an incubation time of between one and three days. The devouring of the victim's bones causes a loss of dexterity, and makes bones more likely to shatter, such as if struck by a blunt weapon.[1]
