Requires Seasoned
A trap that will afflict a target with a debilitating illness, poison, or malady of some kind when triggered.
Used by Edgar Stokes, Created by Strazhari.
(The trap looks like a sticky fluid coating a surface and can only be discovered as a trap by those with preexisting knowledge of such traps. )

Edgar stores this vile fluid in his throat, which is naturally produced by his body. Those exposed risk degenerative madness, typically involving hallucinations of the dead (see ghosts, dead people call them on the phone) or experience parasitism (maggots or other insects crawling under their skin). The only cure is to eat at least a pound of cadaver flesh, a corpse at least 24 hours old. If confronted with such a corpse they are likely to have an episode, believing it smells (& tastes) like the most delicious food they've ever imagined...at least, until they finish eating it.


Use up this transparent ichor and spend an Action to turn a sticky fluid coating a surface into a trap. This trap lasts until triggered or disarmed. This Effect cannot be used unless skin contact is made. Roll Brawn + Occult at Difficulty 6. Choose one of the following symptoms:

  • Psychotic Episodes: The target’s neural pathways begin to decay. At any time, the GM may call for a Mind roll from the target, with the Difficulty equal to 5 + 1 for each day they have been sick (rounded up). Failure causes them to undergo a break from reality. A botch will also grant a new Trauma.

The trap looks like a sticky fluid coating a surface and can only be discovered as a trap by those with preexisting knowledge of such traps. Anyone who is aware of the trap may intuitively avoid, trigger, or destroy it.

Any Living target within within arm’s reach that uses the trap as a sticky fluid coating a surface will trigger it. Your target may resist by rolling Body at Difficulty 7.

When the trap is triggered, the target is afflicted with a Condition that causes the chosen symptoms. Symptoms begin to appear immediately, and will remain and continue to worsen until the affliction is cured. The affliction is contagious and will spread to new targets. Anyone who comes into direct contact an afflicted individual of the same species must roll Body, Difficulty 8. If they fail, they become afflicted. Otherwise, they are immune to the spread.

The affliction is not treatable by modern medicine. It may be diagnosed by rolling Intellect + Occult at Difficulty 6, and can be cured by consuming at least a pound of flesh from a cadaver more than 24 hours old.

  • Triggering the trap requires an Action from the target, not merely an incidental glance.
  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Successfully diagnosing an affliction also includes information about the treatment method.
  • The chosen method of treatment must be something that you could obtain in a small town given an afternoon.
  • Curing an affliction removes the Condition, but does not automatically heal any Injuries, Battle Scars, or Traumas which may have been caused by that condition.
  • Multiple traps cannot be placed in the exact same location or be triggered by the same single Action. Nor can one trap triggering cause another to trigger.
  • Trap can only be spotted by someone who has witnessed this particular trap before, has been informed, or possesses relevant supernatural abilities.
