In-game description "You look somewhat apish."
Message when acquired "You suddenly feel that you are stepping backward in evolution."
Message when removed "You seem to integrate into the evolutionary scheme once more."
Attribute changes -1 Learning, -1 Willpower, -2 Charisma, -3 Appearance, +3 Strength
Other effects Periodically modifies base attributes: +1 St, To and -1 Le, Wi, Dx, Ch, Ap

Apish look is one of the 35 possible corruptions that can be inflicted on the PC. In addition to its attribute modifiers, it grants reoccurring changes to base attribute values.


This corruption periodically increases Strength and Toughness while decreasing every other stat except Perception and Mana. This event is marked by the message "You suddenly remember your ancestors." While the attribute increases can be granted regardless of the attribute level and potential, they seem to be granted only a limited number of times (~9-14). The attribute decreases are not limited in this way.

This corruption is rather good for melee orientated characters, since Willpower can be kept within reasonable values by some use of morgia roots. Spellcasters, however, should remove it as soon as possible.

As of version 1.2.0, Apish look can only be obtained if the PC is 'extremely corrupted', as their 18th corruption [1]. Consequently, a Chaos Knight can never start out with the corruption.
