flea or from someone with the pneumonic form.
You are suffering from swellings called buboes,
in the lymph nodes of the neck, armpits and
groin. These are going to become very painful

headache is going to get much worse, your
temperature will become unbearable and you will
soon be delirious. Vomiting and diarrhea will
accompany all of this. More bad news is that
there is a 75% mortality rate. The good news
is, if you live, jobs are going to be much more
