Knife of Meat-Loving

By:

A well crafted but otherwise ordinary steak knife. It makes the cutting of meat sooooooo easy.

Full Item Description
A well crafted but otherwise ordinary steak knife.

History
It was forged by a bored demon that wondered what would happen if mortals were cursed with the craving his kind have for the bloody flesh of all things.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Anyone who uses this knife to carve up his meat, slowly finds himself obsessed with the different kinds of meat that one can eat.Why stop with boring things like chicken, beef, and fish, the mind of the cursed one will tell him, urging him to try eating the flesh of about every living thing there is. Soon,it will reach a point where that so annoying pet of one’s wife mysteriously vanishes. Two birds killed with one stone,no? No more harpy of a wife to nag you and a delicious dish made from a totally new kind of meat to feed your craving for meat.

Note:Process only begins if the knife is used on flesh. Otherwise,it is just an ordinary knife.

Simple, but fun idea. If I were to use this I think I'd give the knife "intelligence" so it would try to get used. It gets lost (like the ring of power in tolkien) and found so it can make the rounds, killing all pets. Or maybe the user kills his/her spouse and is put in jail. The knife is found by someone else. The PCs come in to town and find a mystery where families keep having their pets killed first and then their family members. Why is this happening? A nice little mystery ... the whole adventure could involve never fighting anyone perhaps.

Fun!

Pets are gone, spouse is gone, finishing up what is left of the neighbor and he eyeballs his own forearm. Hmmmm!? Why have a forearm when you can have a thigh?

I still love this Meat-Loving Knife! A great example of a short, but stimulating sub! A fully formed, original, and harrowing concept.

timed out damn it

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
