ALHIRA, DEMARIA – Medics working recent battle cage matches in the arena on Demaria confirm that a particularly nasty fungus has spread among gladiators who use the same facilities.

The fungus causes intense itchiness, sore throat, and makes fur fall off in patches. It’s not clear how the infection started or where the fungus comes from.

Officials worry that it may have started as an act of terrorism by opponents of the combat sport.
