The world abounds with diseases.  The diseases come in multiple flavours, some are
mostly harmless, while many others are deadly.  Some are even funny (to others).

There are at least two spells that can help with curing diseases. These include,
'detect disease' & 'remove disease'.  There are other stronger magics around the
world that can cure plagues.

Narcolepsy The sufferer falls asleep at the most inopportune times... and any other time, too cast 'remove disease' narcalepsy

Clumsy The fumble-fingered aspect of this spell causes the sufferer to spill their coins everywhere. cast 'remove disease' clumsy
Solstark All the waters of the Great Ocean would not be enough to slake the thirst of someone suffering from Solstark. cast 'remove disease' solstark
Bulemia The sufferer vomits copiously, but retains an endless appetite. cast 'remove disease' bulemia
Slurrrr Speech becomes so twisted that the victim is unable to enunciate clearly enough to cast spells of any variety. Occasionally the massive confusion wrought by this disease gives the victim a seizure. The process of this disease takes some time to develop, while the disease-causing agents incubate in the victim's body. cast 'remove disease' slurrrr
Donkeyitis The victim slowly turns into... a donkey. cast 'remove disease' donkeyitis
Vampirism This horrible disease realizes itself in four ways:a) The victim is no longer interested in normal food. Instead, she must dine o­n the blood of humanoids around them.b) Sunlight burns the victim horribly.c) o­n the bright side (figuratively), those afflicted with those disease regenerate more quickly at night when outdoors.d) Last but not least... if the victims of this disease take too much damage while in battle, they suddenly turn into a bat and flee the scene. cast 'turn undead'
Gold Fever Those afflicted with gold fever become greedy misers, refusing to share in the bounty of anything they find. No known cure, but it eventually wears off. For the sake of those around them, sufferers are kept in isolation cells until the disease abates.
Heebie-Jeebies The victim realizes that she's been right all along. They really have been hunting her. No known cure, but it eventually wears off.
Petrification Much like meeting Medusa, this disease turns the victim to stone... but instead of being instantaneous, it happens over time. cast 'stone to flesh'
Hyperpyrosis The victim undergoes spontaneous human combustion, eventually exploding and spreading their equipment in all directions. No known cure. Those afflicted with this strange disease are moved to a fireproof shelter, as they will eventually explode.
