Motion sickness is caused by riding the swings at the fairgrounds in Escrow.

Effects

  • Similar to eating cabbage, it will upset the stomach in a gaseous manner.
  • Unlike eating cabbage, it will attempt to escape from both ends and cause the afflicted to moan in pain.
  • These involuntary souls will take you out of hiding.
  • Each time you "clutch your stomach in agony and bend over" it causes a stacking -1 to Dex. Its known upper limit is -2.
  • Despite possibly vomiting on yourself repeatedly there is no line added to player descriptions.

Cures

Time is the only known cure. First the symptoms will resolve. Then, about one Disc-hour after, the Dex penalty will begin to quickly wear off one point at a time.
