Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Mind grubs are today considered a vithrack delicacy, but the mind grub harvests are said to have very pragmatic origins. Mind grubs undergo a prolonged development cycle, starting out as pale, fragile larvae and ultimately undergoing a dramatic metamorphosis into large and highly dangerous adults. Few kith have encountered these creatures in the wild and lived to tell the tale, and the notoriously insular vithrack are not forthcoming with information, but a few more lurid fables suggest that the mind grubs are all that remains of a second, sentient culture that once vied with the vithrack for dominance. In any case, the vithrack are content to devour them in the early stages.

Consuming mind grubs is said to heighten the senses and sharpen the wits, but the grubs themselves are all but indigestible to kith, who tend to come out of the experience with an upset stomach.
