This. Most RPG systems I've seen, no matter how crunchy or rules-light, usually hand-wave these sorts of things. Basic hygiene activities are assumed to take place whenever the party gets a chance to rest.

>> No.33464915

Of course it happens offscreen, that's the standard assumption all around. Unless there's specifically a plot point tied to it, there's no need to bring it up any more than your character's toilet visits.

Motherfucker, the Norse of the viking age were among the cleanliest people in that time period. They put high value in personal grooming and hygiene and even had a day in the week set as "washing day" when the whole family would gather and get thoroughly scrubbed.

>> No.33466088

I think its usually assumed to just happen automatically unless my character has been swimming through some sewege or has otherwise been exposed to something filthy.

No, it can only be used to either hold in something inside your anus or to expell it at a greater pressure. However you need to put points into bowel-control as well, or otherwise it might rip open a colon if your muscles aren't strong enough.

Played a homebrew version of Myconids one time. They ate filth and rot and generated a huge plume of reproductive spores when they die. Was bff with paryy Barb as he was the filthiest animal my mushroom dude had ever seen. Eventually the character died whilst party was travelling through a desert. He spat up his big old cloud of spores but sadly none of them grew since deserts are dry, not ideal. Anyway when surviving party members next rejoined civilisation the barb went to have his semi-annual bath. He took off his disgusting boot to notice that a mushroom had sprouted up from the ingrained sweat and deadskin and other awful shit that had accumulated inside there. He gingerly took the boot and found the wettest warmest place he could and for the downtime they spent in the city brought the mushroom filth every day. That mushroom grew to be my next PC, he (it rathrr) called the barbarian Mother.

Once role played my character taking a shit. We had just started rping and were playing our very first game. Deadlands since we all love westerns. There was an out house at this farm we came to and I decided my character had to drop a deuce. Ashhe's taking a dump another PC gets attacked by a Bloodwire (looks like barbedwire, grabs you and bleeds you). Character is understandably freaking the fuck out as it's the first supernatural we've ever seen. Grabbed character and one other are trying to kill it with little success as it's hard to hit and it's kind of attatched to the guy. Other PC comes running to the outhouse in a panic, banging on the door and screaming to be let in. My character responds with dignity and patients in a posh brit accent "Occupied." Eventually cottons on that something is happening, "what in the blazes is all this comotion?" He asked as he pulls his pants up and opens the door. Sees the bloodwire now off the PC but eagerly gunning for another taste, Brit grabs his Colt Patterson and blows it away handly. Pants fall down. Have never roleplayed shitting or bathing or anything like that since, never get caught with your pants down

In 921 the Arabian chronicler Ibn Fadlan said of them, "They are the filthiest of God's creatures. They have no modesty in defecation and urination, nor do they wash after pollution from orgasm, nor do they wash their hands after eating. Thus they are like wild asses. [there's a part here about gang-raping slaves.] Every day they must wash their faces and heads and this they do in the dirtiest and filthiest fashion possible: to wit, every morning a girl servant brings a great basin of water; she offers this to her master and he washes his hands and face and his hair -- he washes it and combs it out with a comb in the water; then he blows his nose and spits into the basin. When he has finished, the servant carries the basin to the next person, who does likewise. She carries the basin thus to all the household in turn, and each blows his nose, spits, and washes his face and hair in it."

Yes, by a simple casting of the Prestidigitation cantrip and using its cleaning option. In a matter of 30 seconds or less he can go from covered in grim and gunk and monster ick to sparkling clean. Truly no adventurer should ever go without a wand of prestidigitation. It cleans, it flavors your hard tack and crappy rations into a feast, it chills your drinks, it can draw on any surface or none at all so that you can plan your get away.
