Corpse parts are items which can be cut from various corpses.

If you are holding a knife or dagger, you can cut pieces from corpses with "get <bit> from corpse". Body parts thus gotten can be referred to collectively as "bits".

Soft corpse bits can be eaten, pickled, used for Food of Life, used as the focus for the Sek totem, or burned in the Sek fire pit in Djelibeybi for a slight evil alignment shift. Some soft bits however contain bony bits, which must be removed before the soft bits can be eaten.

Some specific corpse bits are components in spells, rituals, or poisons, while a few have other uses.

Some bits contain other bits--for example, a head contains a skull. You can either get the skull directly from the corpse, or get the head from the corpse and then get the skull from the head.

Cutting heavy bits off of a corpse can make it marginally lighter, and therefore easier to drag. If the bit is too heavy for you to pick up, it will be left on the corpse (but carried instead of attached).

Available corpse bits

Different corpses are composed of different parts. The short description of the bit will indicate the type of corpse it was gotten from, like "a human skin".

There is a category for specific corpse parts.
