But first (since this thing COULD be considered yet another tutorial), the basics about "huskification", THEN the "nice" stuff. I am also going to talk about the curing of it and of what happens upon death of the host.
I differ the process of huskification into three stages:
2. The "Speechless" stage
3. Ovipositor stage
So first to number one: Symptoms
You enter this state the moment you got infected by a husk (In other words, when someone injected Velonaceps Calyx eggs into you), and in this stage, you get common symptoms of huskification (for example, soar throaths, hurting muscles etc.), yet there are no serious issues in this stage.
After a certain amount of time (more of that later), you enter the second stage, the "Speechless" stage:
In this one, you are completely hindered from using your chat, which keeps you from communicating with, infact, anyone.
Again, after a certain amount of time: You enter the third, and last stage, the Ovipositor stage.
In this one, the parasite matured, and is "allowing" you to use the very too´l that may or may not has infected you, to infect others, great!
Yet, while in this stage, your health gradually decreases, killing you after some time (More to that later, again).
HOWEVER, the parasite already adapted your body to the enviroment and you arent in need of Oxygen anymore and Are immune to pressure. Ist has yet to he tested however whether that effect is instant or not.
So, I tested the whole process on a crew, while stopwatching the times of entering the 3 stages. I conducted three tests:
SpoilerDeath: Upon entering the third stage, the host continuosly takes damage, until, he falls unconcious, and dies, allowing the parasite to take over.
It was concluded that, whenever someone is infected, the immediate termination merely leads to the parasite taking control instantaniously, regardless of the stage the host is in at the moment, leading to possibly more infections, or deaths.
Curing: In stage 1, the process can be stopped immediately by injecting Calyxanide.
Upon stage 2, Calxanide will still provide a cure.
If someone entered stage three, Calyxanide proves to be ineffective, ultimately leading to the hosts death, and the parasite taking control.
