    And just as an aside, I daresay that not many people are going to accept having a nail driven into their crotch, regardless of the benefits.


    I have decided, after some thought, that I don't really feel happy on these forums. I might decide to come back to post. Who knows - but right now, I'm gone.

    So good bye, good luck, and have a nice day.

      So, I'm guessing it still hurts, even if it does no damage. Does giving the guy anesthetic before the procedure give penalties?

        Wow o.O , this is really out there - Spike men huh. It's an interesting concept nonetheless. Like many people have spoken above - It's a really creepy concept that goes beyond just a falsified form of life - the idea of a man being filled with tons of nails and that as the nails get removed; so does their various benefits. I like it - I may use it for a one off NPC antagonist or some sort . Good work Amechra .

        But...But...What are the benefits ...

        Edit:
        Oh god I just saw the benefits. I mean... I think if you were knocked out and you wouldn't feel a thing...maybe it's worth it :P .

          Anaesthetic during the ritual is fine - I leave whether or not it would work on the ongoing pain up to individual groups, It really depends on whether you want them to popping Vicodin like Dr. House or not. I mean, nailing the Liver would probably lead you to be immune to them anyway.

          And who said anything about antagonists? Give them a friend who'd be oh-so-pretty if it weren't for the nails marking a triangle on their face. Or a socialite with a big ol' iron tongue piercing who's really good at convincing people - a useful person to hang out with, I'd think.

            Stupid question, but why would it be chronically painful, exactly? It would be just a big piercing with a metal filling molded to it exactly

              It's a cost of the magic - it's like how Vampires need to drink blood.

              Because the reality is that those nails would ultimately be rejected by the body otherwise - like splinters on a larger scale.

                The reason piercings don't hurt (except for all the times they do) is because the body heals around them. Generally the body doesn't heal good around foreign objects so piercings are designed to irritate the body as little as possible to have the body start healing properly. The only time a large piercing won't fuck your body up is if you've stretched the pierced hole over time.
                Piercings can be relatively pain free, but there's a science behind it and with bad luck even properly taken and maintained piercings can become chronically inflamed and refuse to fully heal unless you remove it.

                    Is it -1 no matter how many nails you have? Or -1 per nail?

                        -1, total.
