Event Picture

This is a Beach exploration event. It can occur once per playthrough and offers the chance to acquire Orichalcum Bead Orichalcum Bead and Sage Powder Sage Powder.

Inspect[ | ]

Lost in the middle of nowhere, you find one of the most disgusting things you've ever seen. A cooking pot filled with rotting meat. The meat still has some bones attached and bathes in a red gooey substance that overflows from the pot. Circling the extinguished cooking fire are human skulls, stones and a rune.

Examine the Runestone[ | ]

Requires: Wisdom

The stone has been hollowed-out to make a big rune stand out. Well, you assume it's a rune... It's hard to be sure.

Try to remember (Wisdom)

Success: You remember reading a parchment about long lost futhark runes. This is one of them. GYFU? No, that's not it... GIBU? Hmmm... Ah! you remember now: it is *GEBO. You can't recall what it means though...
Failure: You really can't remember what this rune is about... But in some weird way, despite how gross it is, this cooking pot makes you hungry.
+Hunger Hunger

Try to remember (Wisdom)

Success: Yes! *GEBO is the rune of generosity, sharing and gifts. It was also said that a skald used the rune to protect himself from poison: the magic of the rune shattered the cup before he could drink. You look at the rune, then at the cooking pot, then the rune again. You frown. Yeah... a "gift"... more like a poisoned chalice.
Failure: You never saw that rune before. You're starting to doubt the fact that it's a rune. Maybe it's just a cross.
+Depression Depression

Eat from the Pot[ | ]

Requires: Courage, Constitution

Does it even make sense to willingly poison yourself with the horrid stuff from that cursed cooking pot?

Reconsider All things considered, it's probably a pretty bad idea.

Try it (Courage)

Failure: No. Right now, you cannot eat this putrid garbage. No sane person could. What a disgusting idea...
+Depression Depression
Success: Probably not, but neither does this crazy island. You take a deep breath and come closer to the pot.

Take a mouthful

This is the most revolting thing you've ever put in your mouth.

Swallow (Constitution)

Failure: A single bite of this raw and putrid meat is too much for your poor stomach. Way too much.
+Sickness Sickness
Success: Despite the utterly disgusting texture, you chew, and swallow. This wasn't good, but it's no match for your stomach.
+Sickness Sickness
Or that's what you thought. The agonizing bellyache you're feeling right now may prove you wrong...
Swallow (Constitution)
Success: But once again, you resist. It seems very unlikely this meal was supposed to be eaten raw, but it wasn't a problem for you.
-Hunger Hunger
Whatever you ate is now a part of you. You're under the impression that your stomach will now obey you, no matter what you eat or don't eat.
Survivor gains trait: Ascetic (permanent, -10% to hunger increases)
Failure: Doubled up in pain on the ground, lying in your own vomit, you feel like human garbage.
+Depression Depression, +Injury Injury

Add some Raw Ingredient[ | ]

What will you add to the pot?

Raw Vegetable

Given the quantity of putrid meat already in the pot, you don't think any vegetable will be noticeable at all, but at least, you contributed.
-1 Raw Vegetables Raw Vegetable
Before you can step back, the pot gurgles, and a putrid squirt of rotten ooze bursts in your face
+Sickness Sickness

Raw Fish

There was no fish in the pot, but you doubt anyone will be able to tell the difference.
-1 Raw Fish Raw Fish
Before you can step back, the pot gurgles, and a putrid squirt of rotten ooze bursts in your face.
+Sickness Sickness

Raw Meat

It was oddly satisfying to add more meat into the pot. Somehow, you could even say it felt right.
-1 Raw Meat Raw Meat
The content of the pot still looks awful, and yet... you feel hungry. You have very mixed feelings about this.
+Hunger Hunger

Reconsider

After a bit of thought, you don't see the point in wasting any ingredient for this culinary abomination.

Light the Fire[ | ]

Requires: Courage (Requires at least 1 Tinder Tinder)

An acrid black smoke fills your lungs as the fire starts below the pot.

Survivor gains trait: Disease icon Coughing (5 days), -1 Tinder Tinder

The foul liquid is now boiling. The smell is both disgusting and appetizing, which causes you a bizarre distress.

Deal with it (Courage)

Success: It's only one more strange thing among the many others on this island. Nothing to worry about...
Failure: You feel like a filthy beast. You should be repelled by the smell. What's wrong with you?
+Depression Depression

Eat from the Pot (Boiling)[ | ]

Does it even make sense to willingly poison yourself with the horrid stuff from that cursed cooking pot?

Reconsider

All things considered, it's probably a pretty bad idea.

Try it (Courage)

Failure: No. Right now, you cannot eat this putrid garbage. No sane person could. What a disgusting idea...
+Depression Depression
Success: Probably not, but neither does this crazy island. You take a deep breath and come closer to the pot.

Take a mouthful

As you try very hard not to vomit, you can't help but think that something is missing.
Swallow (Constitution)
Success: You still manage to swallow whatever is in your mouth, though you kind of wish you didn't. Minutes pass. Nothing happens, except an uncanny feeling of solitude.
+Depression Depression
Failure: You painfully regurgitate what you just swallowed, not to mention the whole content of your stomach.
+Sickness Sickness

Eat from the Pot (Boiling w/ meat added)[ | ]

Does it even make sense to willingly poison yourself with the horrid stuff from that cursed cooking pot?

Reconsider

All things considered, it's probably a pretty bad idea.

Try it (Courage)

Failure: No. Right now, you cannot eat this putrid garbage. No sane person could. What a disgusting idea...
+Depression Depression
Success: Probably not, but neither does this crazy island. You take a deep breath and come closer to the pot.
Take a mouthful
This tastes... Delicious? You're probably hallucinating.
Swallow (Constitution)
Failure: Even if what you've just eaten tasted better than expected, you're not feeling well at all.
+Sickness Sickness
Success: Maybe this tainted food destroyed your senses of smell and taste. But it seems actually edible, and more than that, tasty.
Success or Failure: You are not alone. There are... other guests around you, sharing the same meal from the pot, eating and dancing and laughing. Or are they just shadows? Something's wrong. Slightly out of place. As if that meal didn't actually exist. And yet, you took a bite...
-Hunger Hunger
You rub your eyes. There's no pot, no meat, nobody around... Nothing but the ashes of a small campfire. There is no trace of what you put into the pot. But in the middle of the ashes, you can see a small metallic sphere.
