Vial of regenerate and hand with ceremonial marrying tattoo


Pathfinder RPG General Discussion


I've got human male scoundrel type two-weapon fighter character. He was earlier tricked (not knowing the local customs) and then forced (rest of the party un-willing to help or flee with him) in to marriage. He got ceremonial tattoo as a mark of marriage in his right hand. The bride is very relaxed, only asks monetary investments for her luxurious live now and then. She isn't that awful at all, but as a Chaotic Good character, the situation feels like a cage nevertheless.

After dozens of twist and turns in the campaign, he has now found a real elf lover, someone she feels strongly about. He has been seeing himself as a elf wannabe and now happens to have a scroll that it supposed to be able to change his gender to elf (another long story..)!

Couple of sessions ago, GM broke his metal miniature *shakes fist angrily*. During that session my poor lad was petrified. When we finally got a scroll "Stone to Flesh" in to our hands, the result was one handed two-weapon fighter, eeek!

After another session, we managed to get 3 vials of regeneration. One was immediately used to fix the missing hand. Another was given to party's barbarian (he can get messy..). Last bottle was left to my poor lad who in the same second remembered the tattoo in his other, still non-fixed hand!

Should a willing character be able to cut his own hand? How would ye handle this situation as a GM?

PS. yes, this is the reason why I am getting my minis in plastic now on.

If you can't cut off you own hand, Evil Dead can't be recreated at the table.

Yes. There are many survival stories in real life where people had to sever one of their own body parts to get free. Its not something everyone would be able to do whenever they felt like it, buts its certainly possible to do.

I'd want to see it role played out, not many people can easily part with a limb. Even with plenty of alcohol and the assistance of your... enthusiastic barbarian it could be difficult.

Of course, then I'd have the former spouse do everything she could to retain her income stream, including seeking spousal support under the law and possibly hiring thugs/adventurers to "free" you from the grasp of that "hussy".

But thats the lawyer in me.


Why go to such extremes? Wouldn't just removing the tattooed skin be enough? (Which, admittedly, is painful enough.) I don't think you would even need to waste the vial of regeneration on that.
