The Hunger appears to be a non-magical affliction originally identified amongst the Horseslasher tribe of goblins who made camp in the Howling Caverns near Sandpoint.

It causes an insatiable desire to eat, resulting in a substantially reduced capacity for self preservation and causing hugely swollen bellies as sufferers ate far beyond their natural capacity. Anything edible would be consumed, not just meat – although that seemed preferable to plant matter, for example.

What was once thought to have been a localised incident appears to have spread to other animals around Sandpoint as well as to the village surrounding The Bronze Shield inn.

It may be connected to the presence of Black Dragons, as one appeared to be ruling over the goblins of the Howling Caverns.
