"Over 1000 years ago there was a curse set upon the people of Palamecia. They were imbued with immense power, but would forever be disfigured as a cost for their greed. The Afflicted are descendents [sic] of the Palamecians but they no longer want power; they just want to be loved."
Afflicted have +2 DEX, +2 STR and +2 FTH. They start with an Aetherblade.
