Owner InfromationEdit

William Buehler Seabrook was an American Lost Generation occultist, explorer, traveller, cannibal, and journalist, born in Westminster, Maryland. He began his career as a reporter and City Editor of the Augusta Chronicle in Georgia. Seabrook went on a trip to West Africa, living with a tribe known as the Guere. He asked the chief what human meat tasted like, but the chief couldn't describe it to Seabrook's satisfaction.

His account of his travels, Adventures in Arabia: among the Bedouins, Druses, Whirling Dervishes and Yezidee Devil Worshipers was published in 1927; it was sufficiently successful to allow him to travel to Haiti, where he developed an interest in Haitian Vodou and the Culte des Mortes which were described at length in his book The Magic Island. The book is credited with introducting the concept of a zombie to popular culture.

EffectsEdit

Smelling steam from the pot will cause the heart to stop, but maintains some form of primitive conscience. At this point, the victim can be considered dead, as no shred of humanity remains in them. All brain activity becomes devoted to survival, causing the newly formed zombie to seek out and consume human flesh, for which they develop a craving. 

As long as no food is cooked in the pot, it is safe to store with no particular precautions.
