So it seems The Dauntless Temperence Campaigner is pouring gallons of prisoner's honey down a well. I'm sure nothing bad can come of pouring gallons of dream honey down a spooky well. It's not like there are any connections between wells and dangerous dream based entities. This is fine. Everything is fine.

Does this mean Stoned-Out-Of-His-Mind Mr. Eaten is going to be a thing from now on? Because that would be amazing.

A vote for the DTC is a vote for getting Mr Eaten stoned!

It will be interesting to see what happens. I don't think anyone has ever considered the question of: "What would happen if I poured a ton of honey down a well?"

On a derail I got chills watching the latest Twin Peaks and the distinctly Eaten-esque mantra:

This is the water and this is the well. Drink full and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes and dark within.

...oh, no. Well-water (and Mr. Eaten's blessing) is a vital ingredient in frying traditional Mutton Island rubbery lumps.

I'm going to be so mad if this inshore dumping sweetens the Lumps too much. Or puts snakes in them.

    Leave it to a temperance campaigner to get the lord of horror hunger and nightmares completely stoned out of its mind.

    I didn't know that. What an interesting tidbit! Thank you!


    Honey's really cool that way. The crystallization actually is self-preservation. If you have crystallized honey, all you have to do is heat it up (slowly. Put the jar in warm water and let it heat) and bam, it is now liquid honey once more. Or you can just eat it, it's still honey. It just wouldn't be as good for tea... more like a thing you put on a biscuit.

    In Nemesis, you have a drop of red honey that you take. It was a fragment found in a jar that was re-liquefied. So it seems like special honey acts at least similar to normal honey in that way.

    Prisoners Honey actually decreases your appetite - that's why honey addicts all look so thin and malnourished.

    You also use a few crystallized chips of red honey in Sunless Sea, while raiding the Tomb of the Monkey Emperors.

    This is easily the only moment I've ever come to seriously rethinking my candidate. That is a noble goal; just think, since all the lategame Seekers are slowly becoming akin to Mr. Eaten, does that mean THEY get stoned too?

    Maybe if we give Mr Eaten enough honey, he'll be transported to Parabola and keep the Fingerkings busy. That or his immense appetite will just serve as a bottomless honey trashcan.

    Yeah, I learned too. Cool fact!
    So I guess what we're saying is the honey will crystalize in the bottom of the well, for the inhabitants of the 7th city to dig up and ponder over?

    I'm sure nothing can possibly go wrong here. There are plans for reckonings. Although I'm not sure they cover for idiocy of this level.

    New question to ask in debates: "What is your proposed method of dealing with Mr Eaten?

    The DTC will get him honey-mazed off all the excess honey, though probably unintentionally. The Detective will just arrest him. Feducci would just duel him, I guess. (What bets would be involved, though?)

    Something about giving a certain ravenous well-dwelling entity access to the saccharine fantasies (and minds) of honey-dreamers seems a tad reckless to me.

    Then again, maybe some color will get our delicious friend out of his funk.

    I think it fairly likely that both the Detective and the DTC would assume that Mr. Eaten's manifestations are figments of Certain People's imaginations.

    Feducci would know better, I think, but I also think he'd keep his mouth shut on the subject.
