Knife of Meat-Loving


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.

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.

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?

Interesting, though a little short :)

No problem at all with the shortness. Must have forgotten to vote on this good piece... okay, a bad, bad, bad piece!

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

Tripping over the Golden Bough

       By: Wulfhere

Nearly every primitive culture has had rituals and celebrations to guarantee the proper passage of the seasons and to ensure the fertility of crops and animals. Oversight of these ceremonies was generally the provenance of local kings or priests.

Suppose that the adventurers dispatch one of these fellows. The local peasants may become hysterical, fearing famine and death will stalk the land. Alternatively, they may want one of the new heroes to become king. For a while, this can be a good thing, but the first time that the crops fail, the superstitious locals will want to sacrifice their new leader.
