Spell descriptionWhat a way to go...... this spell at first causes a person to feel a littlehungry. If this person fails a saving throw, he (no sexism here - 'he' usedfor neutrality) will want to go for a snack. But the person actually feelshungrier after he eats. This spell works by causing someone to feel hungrierthe more he eats. He may grow fatter and all, but he still feels terriblyhungry. This causes death through two possible means: 1) The person eatshimself to death. 2) The person becomes so full of hunger that he tearsat his own flesh, causing him to bleed to death. The spell lasts for 3 daysoriginally, then each day the person makes a Constitution check - he makesit, the spell ends, he fails it, it continues one more day. Spells likeRemove Curse, Dispel Magic, etc can end this spell. As for spells like Goodberry,the victim rolls 1d4:
-1- The spell ends.
-2- Victim feels better. In one day the spell restarts like the old roachthat never dies.
-3- The victim throws up all he has eaten. The spell continues at the startingpoint.
-4- No effect.
The required material component is a ripped-out stomach of a creature ofthe same race as the victim.
