You touch it with the tip of your finger, and instantly your body freezes! You can't move, and your mind is engulfed into an impenetrable darkness. Everything around you is blurry and dark, like in a nightmare. The forest has disappeared into a mess of moving shades and mist. The world has slowed down, you fell like you were under water. It is as black as coal and freezing. Suddenly, you see yourself sitting in circle with dozen hooded men. They murmur a litany of words you don't understand. And so are you! In front of you, you see a young woman. You KNOW she is to be sacrificed soon.

Fountains of blood come out of the poor woman's belly. And you feel... You have to stand up. You advance toward the sacrificial altar, as all other hooded men do, and.. You plunge your head in her! You were about to eat her internal organs when... You wake up, lying on the ground, at the foot of the pedestal... You feel a terrible HUNGER in your belly. + Hunger + Cannibal Curse (8 day negative trait; +15% to Hunger increases, +5 to +10 Hunger each night)
      • Help her (hidden condition: Can only be used once) You can't let a poor innocent soul be killed like this! You rush toward the Master, holding a dagger above her belly. You punch him in the face. One time. Twice. You can't think straight... The Master isn't moving anymore... You punch again. And again. You look around you... All the apprentices left. You're now alone with the woman. You untie her naked body, mechanically, covered in the blood of the Master. + Savior (permanent positive trait; Courage +10; Charisma +10, +15% to opinion increases) And instead of running away, she stands up in front of you. She's not afraid. She licks the blood on your hands. Then, on your chest. You push her against the sacrificial altar, drop your robes, and kiss her. You dive into a wild embrace for a moment... When... You realize... The woman... Her face... No... No... NOOO! Her face has changed into a grotesque, demonic shape! And you feel her claws' grip on your bleeding hips! She stares at you with an evil smile. She opens her mount and shows a terrible set of point teeth! She's going to try to bite you when...
