    In the mes folder you will find gamecurse.mes.

    In gamecurse.mes it says:

    // This is the Curse Message File
    // Each Cursebl starts on a multiple of 10
    // The first line is the log entry. This line is mandatory.
    // The second line is the effect number that should be applied when the Curse activates. This line is mandatory.
    // The third line is the message that appears when the Curse activates. This line is optional.

    Here's an example I made:

    {690}{You have discarded the power of the werebeast but your blood still feels the call of the moon. You are weak and yearn for the Kiss of the Werebeast.}
    {691}{383}
    {692}{You have discarded the Kiss of the Werebeast!}

    So the first line appears under the curse section of your log.
    The second line gives the player effect 383 (from effect.mes in the rules folder).
    The third line is displayed in the display window on screen at the time the curse is received.

    This is curse 69 (690 divided by 10). The next curse must start at line 700.

    I found the effect.mes. It is in the Arcanum3.dat/rules folder. He must have copied it into the one he's working from.

    If you want, I'll send it to you via e-mail. Just drop me a line in my link.

    At the bottom of gamecurse.mes it should say:

    // Messages used by the curse module

    {1000}{You have received a curse!}

    If you have removed this, then just paste it back in.
    You can change the words if you want, just as long as you have it as line 1000.
