Nurgle's Rot is a magical disease created by the Chaos God Nurgle, the father of plagues and embodiment of entropy and despair. Those who catch the horrid illness will slowly rot away and die. As their body is engulfed in putrid boils and sores, their soul is claim by father Nurgle and transformed into a Plaguebearer[1a], one of the rank-and-file daemons of Nurgle. Nurgle's Rot is extremely contagious, Nurgle considers it his best work. However devout minions such as Ku'gath Plaguefather continue to try and improve the plagues of Nurgle.[1b]
