"They all perished quite dreadfully of Swamp Rot in the first month."

Swamp Rot is a disease that could be contracted in the swamps and marshes of Tamriel. It drains the willpower, strength, and agility of both mer and men[1] before ultimately killing them. It is predominantly contracted in the swamps of Black Marsh[2] and in High Rock around the city of Daggerfall.[1]

Swamp Rot killed many acolytes of Mara who were based at the Temple of Mara in the town of Umpholo in Black Marsh within one month of their arrival.[2]
