Contracting (if that's the word) Wendigo status
I just had a quick question about cannibalism in the game and turning into a Wendigo. In short, can you get this by eating Dogmen?
If the answer is a simple yes or no great, if not and you would like some context, read on:
I did search the forum and although I found some interesting posts from when the idea of turning into a Wendigo first made it into the game, I could not find precisely what I was looking for. For context, on a recent playthrough, I died due to an encounter then I noticed on the final moments screen that I had progressed to Wendigo stage 2, unbeknownst to me, and apparently ready to go to stage 3. This was perplexing to me because, as far as I know, I never ate any human meat nor did I suffer any negative effects from it. Not even at Zom Zom's. In fact I avoided Zom Zom's altogether until I was ready to meet the Stoat and take the job. I don't know much about cannibalism in the game because I have never done it on any of my playthroughs with the exception of the first few plays, eating at Zom Zom's because I didn't know any better, or getting my meats mixed up if I killed man and animal on the same hex. Since then I've always been very careful because I didn't know what the consequences were but I figured they were negative so why do it? At any rate I'm quite certain that I never ate any human meat on this last playthrough but I have to assume I must have by accident at some point but I really don't see how that is possible. The only other thing I can think of is that I eat quite a few Dogmen and dogs as squirrels and deer are inefficient sport to say the least. It occurs to me though that they are not normal foodstuffs and some of the discussion I read seemed to suggest that turning into a Wendigo is more about the taboo than it is anything else and since we wouldn't normally eat dogs in this country I am wondering if dogs and Dogmen are also taboo?
So thanks in advance for your help and thoughts and reading this post!
