How about drinking a tea of lye (caustic soda)?  Yes, it would need to very weak, and the cure could be as bad as the disease, potentially worse.

Lye is a strong base, which neutralizes acid, so my reasoning is that since the critter is at home in an acid environment, a base environment would be lethal for it.


"In extreme cases, healers have been known to use Lye Tea.  Because of the deadly effects of ingesting lye, the healer must be very skilled in order to get the strength correct.  Too weak, and the Gulletcramp will survive, and the patient not only deals with it, but lye poisoning as well.  Too strong, and the patient will a very painful death at the hands of those who would save them."

I recall that I originally wanted this parasite to be a little bit more deadly, but have since softened my intentions.

Alt, that is an extremely sound suggestion. But I do like what Seagazer proposed as well. Perhaps I can incorporate both of them.

Alright! All fixed up, primed and ready for comments! Thank you. Hopefully the changes made are permissible. Alt, I wanted to use your lye tea and did my best to rewrite it in my own words. If the revision isn't to your liking, please let me know.

Thank you for your time and patience.

Just making that small change, and I am happy with it.   :D

Yeah, this is all good from my perspective.

It's such a wonderful Santharianisation of a Terran idiom, and really adds some of that wonderful depth that makes Santharia so unique.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
