Kipling's Syndrome
Table of Contents


Kipling's Syndrome is the name given to a group of disabling conditions brought on by exposure to the native life of Lotus. It is primarily expressed as a combination of ongoing severe flu-like symptoms, central nervous system problems, and mental incapacitation.

The first signs of it were recognized by New Frontier physicians while treating a team of corporate researchers that had failed to observe proper contact rules. In 2350 Doctor Rudyard Patterson Kipling isolated the single DNA trigger that caused the debilitating effects. He was later able to tailor a virus to alter human physiology, allowing unshielded existence on the planet. No negative effect of a native organism's ambient exposure to humans has ever been documented.


Permanent immunity is now a simple matter. First, the subject is inoculated with kiplingviridae. Supplements are then ingested regularly for 8-10 days. A post-procedure examination is recommended to ensure that the virus has taken root.

Introducing the virus to a patient suffering from Kipling's syndrome halts continued degeneration, but damage to the CNS or brain is almost always permanent.
