Can I cut off my own toe?
« on: May 29, 2011, 02:50:07 am »

My adventurer has an infection in the nail of her "fifth toe, left foot" (also known as, her pinky toe.).

Is there a way to cut off my toe so it doesn't kill me? Or is amputation not an option? If I can, how? Should I do it?

If not, what should I do about my character's infected toe?

Never mind. My left foot just got ripped off my an alligator....

I almost wish I could tell it "Thanks for the save! Next time try not to nearly kill my party members".

Ah, yes, I thought something was amiss. Now I see. There's not enough terrible things in the lakes.

In Dwarf Fortress, Crocodiles are better doctors than the actual people.

I think self mutilation should be an option, mainly for when in a tough situation and using your arm as a weapon, and for cutting off infected parts.

How do you get an infection? My adventurer lived long and painfull life, and never even got close to anything infection-like. I just drop disease resistance to very low when creating a new heroes. Never in my ADV mode life, have i caught an infection.

Yes, I can see how trading in an edged weapon strong enough to sever an arm for said arm could prove advantageous.
Seriously though, self-mutilation would be good. Even better would be an ability to swing your weapon at anything reachable. Mining and wood cutting comes to mind.

I would go into castles, cut off my own body parts, and offer them to the Lady.

I don't know which is worse, that the ramblings in this thread are insane...
... or that I agree completely.
