The Wendigo Curse Edit
The Wendigo Curse occurs after eating human meat, and gets progressively worse over time. When the player acquires the curse, his nourishment bar drains much faster, and he becomes much more sated by the consumption of human meat.
The ATN will cure the Wendigo Curse for you, but only once, after which they will attack and exile your character due to cannibalistic tendencies.
The Wendigo Curse, once it is fully developed, also seems to weaken the immune system and cause other illnesses. For this reason, it is advisable to avoid eating human meat in order to avoid contracting the curse and becoming ill.
