I just noticed something our dear god pasted from wikipedia in the magic guide about the plague that is totally wrong. (otherwise Its nice that you help school the kids Zeta. tss just to think that someone need to ask what the plague is, must been a american)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
pandemic that first struck Europe in the mid-late-14th century (1347–51),"
Just noticed a classical thing about never to trust in Wikipedia.
In Thucydides works about the Athen-Spartan war 431-404 BC it is clearly recorded that during the first 4 years of the war Plague struck Athens.(Thucydides was a Athenian general during the named war and made what is probably the first real historical chronicle.)

Wikipedia can be edited by any anonymous person so some people may like to pretwnd that they know what they're saying and they may write a load of Bull.
When using Wiki, its best to cross-reference the info. ;)

But Brash, the Black Plague is talking about the time period in which those many different illnesses (which you have just informaned me about) happened. It is not refering to a specific illness. It's kind of like the difference between World War I and World War II. They were both all across the world but they are different wars. Or like two different hurricanes (atleast i nthe US idk if they name them elsewhere) they are both catagorized as a hurricane but are two different ones. There was the Plague of Athens and the Black Plague, they are both plagues but they were at two different times and therefore have two different names.
And jsut a thing you might argue back with. You could say they were the same plague and to that i would say that the black plague was several different illnesses, and in your definition of plague it is jsut an epidemic not a specific epidemic

lol. I find it humorous how the original poster talks about americans being stupid and then cant even figure out that the Black Death/Black Plague was just one pandemic episode of many.
