    Unfortunately UO Gods are against us being highly carnivorous... and won't allow us to eat things our pets would....

    Like rare steaks... Rare meats, brains.... and guts. Nor do they allow the drinking of blood.... shame really...

    I don't know, but my pet LOVES to eat body parts.... heads, torso's... arms, legs... Brains.....

    Alcohol is poison, peanuts is poison to some people but not others, many medicines and medications are just poisons. Consuming poison sometimes makes sense, and unless faced in a life and death situation, humans consuming raw chicken legs doesn't make sense.

    Always though a player with the necro skill should be allowed to it the raw. And the pally book should of had a create food spell.

    As a role-player I often RP my character as preferring his food to be Raw... he does not like folk to burn the life blood out of it.

    And I still want to be able to "make" bloodwyne with the new distilling...

    Well the main reason is that cure potions do not work on salmonella and other food borne illnesses. So rather than risk having virtual sickness running rampant, we have ensured that raw meat is unconsumable.
     
  8. Nice try. If Healers can resurrect dead players, I am sure they can cure "salmonella and other food borne illnesses."

    And what about raw fish steaks? I LIKE MY SUSHI!

    That's because you humans have weak guts and weak eyes... we Drow are strong! Let us eat our meat as it was intended... fresh and full of life!

    "You eat the raw xxxxxxxx and vomit profusely. You feel weak and can't swing your weapon."

    Lasts 15 minutes.
     
  12. Great idea... I can't wait to see the animation graphics for that one!
     
  13. the difference between medication and poison is in the dose.
