|Native World:||Volturnus – caverns|
Flitters are small winged mammals that enjoy dark places. They live in the caverns below the Burning Lands, eating insects, small mammals, and carrion. Flitters are generally passive, but loud noises, light, and smoke will cause them to attack.
Each flitter has a 50% chance of carrying a disease that will be transmitted to a bite victim. Eight hours after being bitten, the infected player will begin to suffer from a fever. This will soon be followed by the chills. The fever will continue for three days, during which time the player will be incapable of any action. If the victim is not treated with antibody plus during this time, he will die on the beginning of the fourth day. Even if the victim receives a dose of antibody plus, he must wait 24 hours before he feels healthy enough to do anything but rest.
