If a random stranger asks to enter your home so that they may heal your wounds, would you agree?

What if that person claims "Absolutely Not Poison. Definitely not."?

Said person's name being "Vilified Poisoner"?

This being their profile? http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/profile/Vilified~Poisoner
Replete with subtle touches like a mantelpiece item of Abominable Salts and a scrapbook status of Suspicion. Others say "Not to be trusted."

The sole journal entry:
30, August 1891
"AHAHAHAHA!"

You stir your Abominable Salts into a nourishing broth. Will your victim trust you enough to drink it?


And August 30th of 1891 happens to be the same day this person calls on you to let him into your home in order to nurse you?

...

Yes, I let him in! He's vilified. Perhaps he has perfectly sound and honorable reasons to trade in poisons. Slander is so sad!

...

Yes, he poisoned me, ahahaha. XD

O villainous! Vilified Poisoner (Vilified Poisoner in Fallen London) has poisoned you with Abominable Salts!

If I had rejected, not knowing the intended result would have nagged at me for days. Do I have regrets? None. I really wanted to see if he'd put a twist on expectations and heal me instead.

Personally, I don't think I would have trusted him. I mean, that's like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse.

Heh... I got the same invite, and I don't have any wounds in the first place...

Possibly returned after a long hiatus. Please do not send live rats or tournament requests.

I'd probably go for it. After all, a bit of extra wounds is a relatively minor thing to risk.

Oh ... he doesn't want to poison me. I feel slighted.

Apparently, you need at least 3 Wounds to appear on the dropdown list of qualified patients. Otherwise, he'll never feel compassionate enough to assist you, I guess... :P

It is fearfully tempting to accept his invite, even though I know I shouldn't!

Hubris received one of his invitations. He didn't accept, but sent a box containing one or more mammals as a thank-you present.

For you: Vilified Poisoner wants to help nurse you back to health. (Do you trust them?)

"Oh, sorry, did I poison you? Probably an accident. Here, drink this nourishing broth. It'll help with the ennui, and possibly the paralysis. No promises."

O villainous! Vilified Poisoner (Vilified Poisoner in Fallen London) has poisoned you with Abominable Salts!

"This? Nourishing broth as well, but I poisoned it. Drink it anyway, it'll put hairs on your chest. Or your arms. Or your head. It might turn you into a werewolf! But it is definitely poison."

Vilified Poisoner (Vilified Poisoner in Fallen London) has done things with bandages and tea. You feel rather better.

Wounds is dropping...

"This will not kill you. I promise. Swear on my arsenic-laced jewellery and my poison filled ring."

O villainous! Vilified Poisoner (Vilified Poisoner in Fallen London) has poisoned you with Abominable Salts!

Obviously, this gentleman...is not very good...at keeping track of which bottles are poisonous...! x.x
