"For the disease...what class are you? If you can cast spells, you can get "cure disease" at a certain level, or just get antidote potions and such, aside from Aribeth, or whatever healing guy is in the temple." Umm, I dunno what class I am...I'm a human fighter, if that answers your question. I just came across antidote's yesterday (in Port Llast). So, if they were around before I must've missed them.
