Blood in the Chocolate is a module for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. The adventure is based around the exploration of a factory akin to the Willy Wonka chocolate factory. It is mostly an excuse for the author to inject his terrible fetishes into the game.

OK, but you've been warned.
The adventure starts with several page of useless background covering a lot of details that won't matter at any point in the game, so let's sum it up: the owner of the factory (a woman named Lucia de Castillo) uses a cursed cacao tree to produce her chocolate. As a result, the chocolate has secondary effects, notably addiction. Also, the pygmy tribe that worshipped the tree now works in the factory.
The adventure starts as some merchants hire the PCs to investigate the factory and find the secret recipe of the chocolate. The factory is not linear, so let's just review the points of interest.
It is worth noting that the chocolate itself is dangerous, as it has a 1/10 chance to cause a negative effect, such as your teeth falling out. How the chocolate is still available on the market in spite of that is left as an exercice to the reader.
The side effects can also immediatly make you gain weight, or bloat your body with gas, which is already a step taken into the author's magical realm. However, the main course is...
I don't really want to write about that, but here you go. The toxins used by the pygmies or within the various trap inside the factory have different effects. This being LotFP, they range from "fuck you" to "might as well reroll a new character immediatly". What is worth mentionning is that two of those toxins make your character inflate either by the accumulation of liquid or gas inside its body. Noticing a pattern here?
