The Draft of a Book I'd like to publish 'in' Mortal Online:
Actual Title: Eaters Of The Dead ²
Authoress: Lorena To'Biath, Huergar Cook
Inscription: Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc ³
Contents: Cannibalistic recipes for culinary delights made from humanoid flesh (Irminae, Jotuni, etc.).
Such foods already exist in-game in primitive forms, but we must have Awakening before we can produce books, or rename recipes to suit ourselves. Items that might be included:
Primordial Soupie Soup:
Main ingredient may be rare and hard to find.
Nothing personal. I don't even know him.
Thief's Head Sushi:
Already on the menu at a bridge near you.
Braised Veela Cutlets:
(Caution: may contain pieces of Unicorn Hooves)
And, finally, and in keeping with Mortal Online's full-frontal sensibility, dessert, for those brave souls not afraid to touch it:
Thursar sausage grilled in Thursar skin and hidden in a pudding of corn flour; with a garnish of Twig and Firmwood Berries.
¹ Ultimate line of dialogue from the classic "To Serve Man" TV episode of The Twilight Zone (1962)
² Hommage to the novel Eaters Of The Dead: The Manuscript of Ibn Fadlan, Relating His Experiences With The Northmen, A.D. 922, by Michael Crichton; the basis for the movie The 13th Warrior (1999).
³ Mock-Latin motto of The Addams Family: "We gladly feast upon those who would subdue us."
⁴ Alliterative verse, no less, "Kallard"-style.
