The character determines the range (distance and height) at which the plague ball is to burst. Am opaque bead of ochre gel streaks from the character, and unless it strikes a material body or or solid barrier prior to attaining the prescribed range, blossoms into the spread effect at that point - an early impact results in an early detonation. If the character attempts to send the bead through a narrow passage, such as through an arrow slit, the character must "hit" the opening with a ranged touch attack or else the bead strikes the barrier and detonates prematurely.

When the bead detonates, all those within the area of effect must make a Fortitude saving throw or contract a random disease that strikes without the standard incubation period. Determine the exact disease each individual contracts using the the table to the right.
