What effect would the common cold have in ars magica? I’m mostly curious, but it might make a good thought exercise nonetheless.
Much the same as in Real Life[sup][size=85]TM[/size][/sup], runny nose and coughing?
Basically nothing. Heals as a light wound?
In the book Art & Academe there is a section on diseases - Coryza (the common cold) mostly just makes you roll Fatigue more often, but takes at least a week to shift, and can linger for weeks and weeks. In mythic Europe you can really keep the same cold for months.
