Absolutely! And if I was doing a Monster Menu-All Part 8: Eating the Complete Psionics Handbook,
We'd totally have rules that go like:
Flavour: thin, greasy, like wax paper
Notes: though eaters are too tough to chew. They are normally boiled to produce the Soup of Thought or distilled to make the Liquor of Morality
Soup of Thought
1-2: Madness. Gain 1d6 mental afflictions and at least 3 additional personalities. Lasts 1d6 hours. Save. If you fail, permanent.
3-4: Mindfulness. Cure any mental afflictions, including madness, unless the madness was caused by the Soup of Thought
5-7: Delicious! Heal 1 HP, or 1 additional HP.
8. Ear of Thought. You can hear all thoughts within 10', as per the ESP spell. Lasts 1d10 hours.
9. Whisperlicker. As Ear of Thought, except permanent. You must learn 1 new secret (known to only 1 other person, or sufficiently dangerous) per day or take 1d6 damage at sunrise.
10. Brain Escape. Your brain pops out and flies to the ethereal plane. It returns in 1d6 days. Your body will rot in 2 days if not kept cool and dry. You permanently gain +4 Intelligence, but your personality changes in unusual ways.
Liquor of Morality:
But alas, it's not to be. Guess I'll never write one.
