So, I was recently (the last 40 hours or so) afflicted with food poisoning. It’s the most sick I’ve been in probably 15 years, and it’s been horrible.
Looking at Cataclysm, food poisoning is really, really tame. So, what I propose is a separate device, something physical, for players to wear. It would use electric muscle stimulation to provide horrible stomach cramping whenever your character is afflicted with food poisoning.
Additionally, there should be some feeding-tube style things that administer small doses of ipecac and laxative, so you get that true-to-life diarrhea and vomiting.
We could also extend this (torture) device to include small amounts of mercury, for simulating radiation poisoning.
It would be marketed as a ‘peripheral’, and we could revolutionize the way modern games are played. For just $49.99.
