Inspect[ | ]

The head of a bull lies on a wooden table. It smells very foul. Worms are playing in the decayed orbits, eating the flesh and revealing the skull of the beast. You look around but find no sign of the rest of the body. No blood smears. Nothing. Just a fully rusted knife and some small bags.

Examine the head x1[ | ]

Relevant Skills: Courage

The absence of any traces of blood is driving you mad. The head couldn't have "magically" landed here, could it?

  • Lift the head.

You grab the head by its horns and lift it. Underneath, you find several flowers, chalk markings. Was this head a blót for the gods? As you ponder that thought, a lump of rotting flesh and maggots from the head falls off on top of the sacrificial area. You fight bile rising in your throat. You do notice something shiny among the filth.

Search the filth ( Courage )

Success:You throw the head away, crouch, take a deep breath and... plunge your hand into the pile of rot and crawlers.The feeling and the smell are both sickening. Once you feel something hard in your hand you remove it from the filth. You clean the tinket -and your hand- with the rest of your water. Hmm... An offering to the gods indeed...
