Shriveling - Is there a cure?


Recommended Posts

Not “forever,” only until they die (or are otherwise obliterated / mutated / spindled, folded and mutilated). It’s Call of Cthulhu, that shouldn’t take long.

NB: If you’re playing Pulp, a bit of protoplasmic weird science / robot limbs / experimental Frankenstein surgery might help. Just putting that out there. I’m sure there won’t be any complications, it’s not as if we’re all telling horror stories here.

There are no definitive means to cure Shrivelling. But, in the vast swathe of Cthulhu Mythos lore, there "could" be a spell:

Blessing of Bast - heals 1D6 HP - perhaps it could also remold skin, at the Keeper's discretion. Perhaps some good service to Bast might grant a direct blessing and curative blessing.

Create Amulet - different versions might cure and/or cover the user in an illusion of health (they appear cured) - but when the amulet is removed, the illusion is removed.

Healing (spell) - a variant might actually heal twisted flesh (although the base spell does not). 

Steal Life - drains another person so you can be cured. 

Body Warping of Gorgoroth

Control Skin

- are also possible means to "cure" the Shirvelling.

Of course, there's no guarantee with any spell....
