|Before (The Donner Party!)|
Last week a party member (the hurly burly Fighter) found and took The Hideous Artefact - even in a bag of Blessed Salt, this Artefact forces the owner to crave flesh and resist the temptation to eat it... What's to come of him?
And I got to thinking - it's one thing to raid the mausoleums and mortuaries for your repast out of preference, another thing entirely to eat the flesh of the dead of necessity (for example in a lengthy siege), still another to be compelled to eat it from a curse... Also, there are many fine gradations. What if someone feeds you Long Pork without your knowledge? Do you still get transformed into gibbering, meeping, hairless grey things if you cannibalize against your will?
The answer, to my mind, ought to be an emphatic 'YES' but maybe if you take pleasure and enjoyment from it, it ought to go faster
I'll take my answer off the air, thanks.
Later this week: my musings on the Pineal Gland, and whipping your mystical third eye into shape for emotional and sexual health! and experience points!
Also: stray spirits for your wandering cleric/wizard/adventurer to bind to his will
Also: the number of unfinished/unposted blog entries is rising to meet the number of posted ones. Gotta do something about this.
