‘Silly Oak’ is a disease that effects a small portion of the populace in the Hiniel Straights. It’s caught by wading through the rivers, a common task by mushroom farmers. The water is thought to be infected by the corpses of defeated tainted further up stream, across the border. However as the prime export of the land is the sweet tasting fungus, many take the risk to farm it and earn a good wage.

Kings and queens from far off lands delight in the fungus which in some courts is nicknamed ‘dead man’s delight’ due to the amount of farmers who die annually.

There are a few remedies however, such as slug wort which has to be brewed for several days over a hot flame, but the price is costly and not many can afford it.
