"Iron Spider"

A deviously simple tool that was used on victims either cold or red-hot. Built somewhat like a huge scissor with four to six curved prongs in lieu of blades. Suspended from the ceiling, the pincers would be used to lift the victim into the air, using the soft flesh of the buttocks, belly or breasts- or the eyes and ears, much like a bowling ball.

"Five Deadly Venoms"

A classic Shaw Brothers Kung-Fu film which featured quite an array of disturbing torture and killing methods.

1- A weakened (from torture) and sleeping victim, is excruciatingly killed by asphixiation, being slowly smothered to death in his cell with several layers of wet paper sheets, placed snuggly on his face. No mess, no fuss. It appears he died from previous injuries.

2- The classic Iron Maiden makes an appearence

3- A breastplate of iron, heated in a fire is forced onto a victim's chest, causing his flesh to burn, bubble and scar permanently.

4- One poor sap, a witness to a killing, is 'silenced' permanently by the murderers, by having his throat ripped out from the inside with a long steel hook inserted through his mouth. The villains killed another chap by jamming a long sewing needle up his nose, and into his brain. A little blood around his nostril was the only evidence of how he died. Go to Comment

I'm definitely not advocating pc's to 'use' these devices and methods necessarily, certainly not 'good' or 'lawful' ones. These are mainly for the many villains of the any given game, but even more specifically as a GM tool for atmosphere and ambience. I guess I'd rather throw a 'brazen bull' in my next dungeon, than yet another 'rack'.

I should also add that as opposed to becoming an index of every torture device ever made by man, I intended for this scroll to include some of the more peculiar or rarer ones, as well as 'made-up' (campaign specific?) items, techniques and methods. Go to Comment

Which brings us to one of my favorite Native American torture techniques. I believe the Iroquois were particularly known for this one. A small hole is drilled into the lower belly of the victim. His or her intestine is pulled out some and nailed to a tree. The victime is then forced to walk around the tree in circles, until the entire intestinal thread is pulled out...slowly. Go to Comment

Is that as painful as testes or testicles? Or did you mean textiles? :D It could happen and it did. Many eunuchs were created by this very same technique in the Ottoman Empire, Ancient China, etc... Go to Comment

From The Leopard, by Jo Nesbo:

Leopold's Apple.

First devised and created in the Belgian Congo. A smooth metallic ball, slightly smaller than a tennis ball in circumference with tiny apertures along its contours. Made of gold, coltan, and steel, the ball is a minor feat of engineering. An additional small opening reveals a looped wire. The ball is placed in the victim's mouth. When the wire is pulled, 24 tiny antenna jut out from the ball, causing it to lodge itself in the mouth. At this point, though not overly painful, the victim cannot remove the ball, nor can another extract it for them. With a second pull of the wire, 24 needles erupt outwards from the extended antennae in 24 directions, causing severe damage to throat, cheek, tongue, palate, nasal cavity, etc....the victim will usually bleed out slowly in excruciating pain. How was this used for torture? It usually involved 2 victims. One who who was forced to swallow the ball, and the second who was forced to watch the effects. That second person would usually begin talking quickly.

Heretic Fork

This two pronged fork was strapped to the victims neck in order to prevent them from sleeping. They would either have their hands tied behind their back or suspended in air. It would also prevent the person from speaking further and was usually used post confession.

Judas Cradle



This device was mostly used in 16th century Spain. The victim would be placed in a harness atop a pyramid-shaped seat with a sharp point. The victim would then be slowly lowered onto the device, which would protrude into their genitals, often ripping them open. Death would occur from tears in muscle tissue that would become infected, or the victim would simply be impaled.

Lead Sprinkler



The Lead Sprinkler was a ball with holes in it attached to a long handle. The punishers would sprinkle the contents of the Lead Sprinkler onto the victim's mouth, anus, vagina or eyes causing intense pain and even death. This device would contain boiling water, hot oil, molten lead, or molten silver.

Crocodile Shears

The crocodile shears were used to punish those attempting to assassinate the king. The device consisted of a tube with spikes at both ends that would be clamped down onto the victim's appendages. The arterial damage that would occur often resulted in agonizing death. Go to Comment
