Case 001, entry 1
I’m finding lots of info on this Poison called “Gu”, and stories. Since I know I’m no “Expert” on Poisonous Creatures, I feel that Learning form the stories is the Best course of action. lol
Rather than Spill lots of Info I found online. I’ll just share with you what I’ve found that Relates to our Project. First the Process of making “Gu”. After checking different story’s about “Gu”.
It seems that the process for making “Gu” is as the Manga says, but with a little change. Rather then only using insects. it seems that they used poisonous reptiles as well, Such as Snakes and frogs. While I did find other ways to make “Gu”. It seems that the methods only changes if your going to use “Gu” as a kind of Love Potion. Since in the Manga it was being used for Fighting. I don’t see the need to share this.
When looking for the Methods, It seems that most the stories of “Gu” come from China. So I think it’s safe to say that This originated from China. If I’m able to find more info on this I’ll post it up.
One thing I did notice about “Gu” is that it wasn’t made to fight with. Well I was made to kill, but not really to fight. One of the Biggest reason for using this poison was to Acquire Wealth. In the stories it was said that when you used this one someone, when they die. all their wealth would be transferred over to you.
The only thing that I couldn’t find was a solid way to use the Poison. Most of the time all is said was “They would Acquire the Venom and then Administer the Vitcim.” They really didn’t say how.
Well I’ll be looking a little more into the Questions I still have. My Next post for this case shall Conclude this Project.
