Curses are similar to diseases, apart from the fact that a curse affects one's Intelligence, Willpower, Personality and Luck. As with all other degenerative attacks, if any of the stats reach zero, death will occur. The good thing about curses is that they seldom have a duration long enough to threaten the life. Still, having an intelligence level at 15 isn't helpful, nor is it safe. If another curse is acquired it could easily kill.
Getting rid of the curseEdit
Curse can be warded off with a spell or potion as well as banished at a temple.
