Now we have to wait six months to find out what effect the dagger will have on Artie and how they will save the world from Sweating Disease. It's an ancient disease, so hopefully a little Ampicillin will do the trick.
It looked pretty magical in nature, so you probably need magic antibiotics . .. .
Yeah, that was kind of a joke. Although maybe some artifact associated with the discovery of antibiotics....
I have a feeling that the only way to stop the plague will be to use the astrolabe again, and figure out some other way to save the Warehouse (not to mention HG, Steve and Mrs Frederic). Since this would turn back time, Leena could theoretically be saved, too.
