I'm just flabbergasted how reliably this topic keeps coming up, and I'm quite happy this isn't really dignified with more than a few "no"s.

So: no.

But big +1 on the burying achievement @ajb1978.

Why would you want to eat someone who might not even be "dead" dead? (Top article; hypothermia during etc.)

The fifth entry in this article is particularly interesting of a man ( Mitsutaka Uchikoshi ) who is reported to have slipped into something similar to hibernation for 24 days...

While apparently possible in fringe medicine, I hardly expect the "dead" to walk again in TLD 😉 Also as you pointed out the definition of dead is rather fluent, but I'm pretty sure that in do or die situation a surprising amount of people would resort to not waiting for someone to be dead.

All of this doesn't change that it would be grossly misplaced in pretty much any game, especially this one.

isn't what I've been trying, but merely making sure my comment is not misread as actually condoning eating people under certain circumstances just because this kind of human behaviour has its roots in human nature, and it is difficult to dispute that. Hence the last line wasn't actually directed at you, who, I think, is very much of the same opinion as I am regarding how "not well" this topic would be suited to be included into TLD or any other game.

I'm sorry if that apparent lack of clarity upset you.

So, if anyone should be apologizing, it should be me.

I guess things get heated easily over such a "cold" topic. Man, I'd hug you if you weren't a frozen corpse, and I sort of get why this topic rattles you a bit more than others :DEverything is good - and I'll make sure nobody nibbles on you.
