Well certainly you could do that, I think you can shoot diseased cattle from trebuchets already in this game. But I believe he was talking more about diseases in a different way. I think he wasn't talking about anything like that, more like wide-spread diseases that aren't thrown from catapults.
And I said fantasy
. I find it weird to find all this disease talk in a game with magic and elves and orcs.
