  3. Category A – greatest risk to public/security • Diseases that are both infectious and contagious • Diseases that are infectious but not contagious • Toxins • Category B – intermediate risk • Category C – emerging diseases that could be engineered (Green, M.S. / Oxford University Press, 2010) Biological AGENTS

  4. Dissemination through • Aerosolization • Infected organisms • Humans • Food • Water (Green, M.S. / Oxford University Press, 2010) Biological agents

  5. Factors • Incubation period • Diagnosis • Treatment • Isolation • Decontamination (Green, M.S. / Oxford University Press, 2010) Biological agents

  6. Bubonic Plague • Yersiniapestisvia Xenopsyllacheopsis • Swollen lymph nodes • Anthrax • Bacillus anthracis • Toxicity • Botulism • Clostridium botulinum • Paralysis (Green, M.S. / Oxford University Press, 2010) Biological agents

  10. The Union of Arran is a country which has recently come into contact with a microorganism that can cause crippling paralysis by attacking the voluntary motor nerves of the victim. The spread of this sickness is slow, however, since the bacteria spreads via body fluids only.

The Empire of Wolgast and the People’s Alliance of LanLarosh have vowed to stay neutral in the war, but the recent intelligence regarding the Warmasters’ plans for Mortusimmobilus have placed them at the horns of a dilemma.
