This week I decided to ask myself, what is the most uncomfortable thing a guild could turn into a piece of standardized equipment? Some sort of surgically implanted sensory organ? A grimoire bound in the still-living hide of an agonized beast? Weirdly long insects?
The answer wasn't weirdly long insects, but only because they're too fun. Need to fight a Mindflayer? Find yourself a Chittering Mind Worm! And something or someone to feed it. And someone to carry it. They get cold easily, and they *really* like to cuddle. On the plus side, though, once you bond with it, it'll groom your beard for you. They're really quite affectionate.
