Alright...read it (twice to take it ALL in) and I have voted.
This should NOT reflect, however, on any theory of my mental state or any ideas I might theoretically put into practice based on what I have read here.
Having said that, I must say this Codex, and every scroll in it, is the reason I love this place. The depravity and mental imbalance shown here is a psychiatrist's wet dream!

This one is relatively simple, one simply straps the patient to the operating table and drug the them into immobility then proceeds to take "creative liberties" with a scalpel upon the more fleshy parts of the body. (or if one wishes fore horrific shock factor the genitals)
The key here is to carve shallow wounds the size and diameter of a nickel (about 1/2" across), then place your preferred strain of flesh eating maggot eggs in to the wound.
As long as you set up a mirror to provide the victim with a decent view of the afflicted area, (Cutting off the eye lids may be necessary at this point.) they will likely tell you anything and everything you want to know as soon as they realize what will happen when the eggs hatch into larvae and go to work on their vulnerable body parts.

After the victim is suitably restrained one applies a sand paper covered belaying pin to various parts of the body with a brisk rubbing motion. The damage caused from this abrasion will be relatively minor (at first) but the pain would be excruciating. (Topical application of salt/alcohol to the wounds will speed the interrogation process without causing excessive harm to the victim.
For variation one can change the grade of sand paper to more or less coarse as they desire or substitute a cheese grater or metal/wood file. Go to Comment
Using a heating element attached inside a hollow metal spike of desired length and thickness one then inserts this probe into the subjects delicate bodily orifice of their choice and slowly turns up the heat. Depending on the amount of heat applied the tissue surrounding the probe will cook over a manner of minutes, hours, or perhaps longer inflicting horrible agony and eventual sterility. (providing the victim with a proper view of the process will help speed interrogation along of course along with the scent of their own body slow roasting)
For variety one can also apply electric shock therapy through this probe instead of, or during the cooking process, although this will hasten the heat build up and onset of sterility. Go to Comment
This one can be applied with minimal difficulty after the subject has been subjected to any number of other interrogation techniques. (It works especially well on spies, and other covert operatives)
The subject after being rendered unconsciouses then has their head bandaged (providing their eyes are still intact) and brought into a room made up to be a mockery of a hospital. (A small speaker connecting to a device that beeps regularly and another one that "hisses" for the hospital sounds and a pan of disinfectant on the floor for that "hospital smell." Providing someone to feel their wrist as if checking their pulse adds to this deception.
The subject is then awoken by someone impersonating a doctor and fed the simple story their body was "dumped" in a river or whatever and then found by an innocent passer by who called an ambulance.
From there the victim (if a spy or covert operative) can be "be briefed" by someone posing as a superior and the unwitting person will usually divulge their mission, what they found out, and what, if anything, they told their captors while under the strain of torture.
(one can also interpose a "qualified psychiatrist" during the debriefing to speak the person about their captivity and the effect it had upon them. Provided one can find a actual psychiatrist to conduct these sessions all manner of mental problems can be caused and/or taken advantage of.)
For added deception one can provide the victim with a secure untraceable line to the outside and allow them to call their "family" and let them know their okay and recovering in whatever out of the way medical area the interrogators have provided. (Usually in a third world country to prevent them from readily paying them a visit)
After this technique has been used whether effective or not, and the victim has recovered a modicum of health. The psychological impact of having the bandages removed or otherwise finding out they are still in the confinement of their torturers will usually break all but the strongest willed victims.

A Mafia execution technique was to stick an ice pick inside the ear, much in the same fashion. You'd get a trickle of blood from the ear, the same as you would with a fatal cerebral hemmorhage. Go to Comment
Plus, just seeing that your skin is being peeled of wold shake even the sturdiest minds, the fact that its not hurting adds the fact that once the drug wears off you are going to hurt a LOT. Go to Comment
another idea: bee stingers still have painful chemicals in them even after the bees die. or one could consider tying a victum up, and laying them on a wasps or bees nest that somehow (lol) ended up on the ground. though there are certain bees that live in holes in the ground. Fire ants are another good variation. Go to Comment
