Contagion

So there we were, last night. The funny thing was that we had a complete wyvern chess team present at the wake, with assorted others. One man had just got back from WHO Geneva, another had been making trips down to London to provide advice on the new influenza strain, the third was back from Harvard. Lawyers, doctors, and unusual others — including the headmistress of the Green Atlanteans. It was an interesting night.

They expect the worst to hit within the next few months, possibly. Winter in the Northern hemisphere tends to be the time of influenza explosions as people sneeze their little virus-carrying droplets all over the place. If mutations occur, those are more likely in the warm and fecund tropics.

Meanwhile, in Atlantis, for the sake of gold we shall pretend it isn't happening.
