>>45084262
make every product of farming and crops wither and die in the 1 mile vicinity to them. make them kill all the villages crops they go to so eventually they get hunted down and killed.
>>
>>45084262
Everywhere your party passes through, the crops wither and fail. You're likely to be harassed and even attacked by mobs of angry peasants if you stay in a single place for more than a day or two.

You can never settle down, you can never call a place home and you can never really get to know anyone, unless you can convince them to join you in your endless wander.
>>
>>45084262
All food harvested from a farm instantly rot when it enters their mouth.
>>
>>45084262
Farm animals attack the players on sight.

Crops die when the players get close. Farmers consequently hate or fear the players.

The players can no longer gain nourishment from food controlled by the goddess.

Other things.
>>
>>45084262
Every time the party stops at a village the crops receive an explosive increase of caterpillars. This of course ruins the crops, but it also has the added side effect of attracting droves of parasitoid wasps and hornets looking for hosts for their eggs/prey for their larvae. Assuming everyone can avoid starving/being stung and bitten to death someone is eventually going to put two and two together and the players are probably going to be run out at best, or sacrificed to appease the goddess at worst. Might seem pretty extreme, but when you piss off a kind deity you'd best be prepared for shit to turn ugly real quick.

>usually benign goddess
If she was the caring motherly god type, would she really throw her faithful people into despair and starvation, just to get even with some impolite murderhobos?

I find the idea with farmed food becoming nonedible better, since it focuses on the individual offenders. How about stuff made out of plant fibres giving out, when least convenient?

>stitching in a backpack tearing right when fleeing from an enemy

I would think that said godess is, even when angered, not the vengeful "death to you all and everyone you ever met" type.

Corn is shit. If she's a Harvest Goddess who's primary symbol is corn, this better be a meso-american themed campaign, because there's at least 10 other crops that are way better than corn in every way.

Even in the modern world corn would be almost irrelevent if American swing states didn't grow corn as their best crops, thus inspiring lots of federal subsidies. It'd be a mexican food thing on the level of, like, Nopales. And Americans wouldn't be half as fat as they are because High Fructose Corn Syrup wouldn't be pretty much fucking free, and thus shoved into goddamn everything.

Fuck Corn, fuck Corn Lovers, and fuck the Corn Goddess. Wheat Goddess better. Potato Goddess a best.
>>
Not only do crops wither and a terrible blight follows them that ruins the parties reputation,

But all methods involved in cultivation mysteriously fail around them, water wheels tear of their axis, flour refuses to grind, bread does not raise and the land becomes unable to be ploughed.

Basically any cultivated means to produce food becomes useless. Including mass fishing!

Gotta go deeper.

You could get away with Potatoes in a medieval setting as much as you could get away with people speaking English, and having a monk in the party. Potatoes are a great crop, and if the place that they're from is on the mainland in your setting there is no reason they shouldn't be a staple up there with wheat.

>>45084765
Name 2 unique uses to a pre-industrial society.

You can't make oil out of it, like olives. You can only make a shitty version of flour that makes disgusting bread. Worse than potatoes for that. You can barely even fucking digest it. Corn whiskey is fucking shit, again worse than potatoes and wheat.

Weight/Food ratio is lower than wheat and potatoes as well. For a huge, heavy stalk you get like, a meal's worth of corn.

She's probably really pissed at the assholes that raze villages and sow their fields with salt.

Adding another thought to the
whole shebang. As far as I can think of pretty much all common alcoholic beverages are derived from crops, right? So play with that.
Only being able to drink water, can be a curse onto itself depending on water quality and availability of cures/medicine.

Also, if any PC has an addiction to alcohol, let him drink it, but not get any buzz out of it.
>>
>>45084860
Not only is that not true, it's also got worse land use/food ratio than wheat, and straw is a useful byproduct. A stalk of corn is huge and has maybe 4 ears on it, which in a pre-genetic engineering society will be smaller than the ones you're used to. Wheat, on the other hand, will be much shorter than you're used to seeing, and can be grown during the winter in all but the harshest climes (where potatoes are king).

The non-food straw is a useful byproduct, especially as an insulator. You can't do shit with corn stalks because they rot.

>Historically, polenta was served as a peasant food in North America and Europe. The reliance on maize, which lacks readily accessible niacin unless cooked with alkali to release it, as a staple caused outbreaks of pellagra throughout the American South and much of Europe until the 20th century.

>>45084677

>>45084509 here, the reason I made the punishment so harsh is BECAUSE the goddess is benign. Do you know how badly you would have had to fuck up to piss off a nice deity? How much you would have to weather down centuries of patience to the point were a being that's usually all about providing for her followers with a bountiful harvest just up and goes "fuck you guys"? There's a reason you don't piss people like that off, let alone deities, and it's because once you get them to that point it's like flipping a switch: They can't filter and aim it properly like people that get angry more regularly can. It just builds up over time until the breaking point before everything is let loose like a dam bursting. Any pent up aggression that was there before you came along is now being let loose to rend you and anything near you asunder.

Alternatively: She's a goddess. Gods are petty. Females are petty. Female Gods are extremely petty.

Anon, the geese were attacking everyone before the party even got there. Geese are horrible vicious little bastards that were created when the goddess of farming and the god of war got drunk during a solstice. To make matters worse neither deity can control the geese. They can only aim them in one direction and hope that the geese hate whatever's presently in that direction more than they do their creators.

If you're a farming goddess then your divinity can be spent steering crops, cultivating plants, determining harvests, the whole bag of chips. Pull as many strings as you like for your domain.

But if some faggot mortals manage to actually draw your ire, why split hairs and try to take out your anger in some appropriate or creative way when you can just appear as a 50 foot tall farm goddess avatar and crush them by stepping on them in no time or effort at all? If a whole army, or a whole city angers you, sure, get all discreet. A handful of adventurers? Fuck em up.

I don't think you comprehend the absurd levels of boredom that gods feel, specially something as specific as a crops god. She "works" 4 times a year deciding how the crops will go and just let magic do whatever she decides. You gotta find something to do in the meantime, and what's better than creating elaborate ways to fuck with people? That's why it's so easy to anger a god, while it could crush any mortal being without a thought, it wouldn't be fun.

Two things to remember:

1) A goddess of crops would also have domain over animals that are used for farming, so dire oxen and other threats are possible.

2) Alcohol. Hops, grain, grapes, imagine never being able to drink booze again. No adventurer will ever dare to disrespect her again.

Nah, that's not how you go about it. That's not devious enough - the party will simply stop drinking anything but water.

Only to have their hopes crushed.

1. Ground opens up and adventurers sink into fuckhuge pool of manure. Stench is unbearable, diseases, bacteria, maggots, all of it poisons them and brings them unconcious. They slowly suffocate and die horrible death 10 meters deep in shit and horrible, horrible things.

2. Goddess of agriculture shapes land. Suddenly the road they travelled on becomes enormous mountain with dozens of terraces full of muddy water and some kind of sharp plants. Massive flocks of birds that blot out the sun gather...

3. Eaten by pigs, nuff said.

4. She lures them to the pen made specifically for each adventurer. She bids them with tools she made, puts harness on them and makes them work the field till exhaustion.

Generally I'd play on the themes of earth shaping, fertilization, breeding fucked-up animal-monster hybrids, domesticating/enslavement and masses of obiedent animals trampling things/devouring everything around.

I mean, if she'll be REALLY pissed off she might do what humans did to wolves with the whole dog thing, but maybe even make them alive through her magic so hundreds years later when some other adventurers will approach goddess they will see monster hybrids guarding doors to her palace. Monster hybrids that were PCs a long time ago.

Make all crops they walk by make sparky passive-aggressive comments at them.

Screwing over everyone around them seems a bit out of character for a harvest goddess.

The crops are now OVERgrown. The countryside is dense with giant crops. The yields themselves are too big, too hard, or just generally unpalletable at their size now. They bury roads and towns under their jungle-like expanse. Plagues of predators sweep over the land, drawn by the abundance. The earth itself is too fertile for normal plant life and any normal plants are burnt at the roots by the acrid soil. The rains come hard and fast. The sun blisters any caught in the open, though the foliage of the mammoth crops easily block out the sun entirely in their depths. The earth grows hard and wet, swollen with its newly necessary nutrients. Like stone, the earth gives no yield to man's tools. The crops live well, man does not.

While there's overlap, most people see farming as nothing more than a food source. The food source that fuels armies.

You know, such deity likely has a massive following in the sense that she'd be popular with every race. I mean, who doesn't like the god of healthy offspring and plentiful food? So make them part of every race's shit list, make their food rot, their loins a place for plentiful vermin to infest, all that they wear that is from your crops and animals slough apart and fray, their rations caught in the wild eaten by locusts or rats, and any spell for food gives nothing but desiccated, inedible husks.

There was this short story I had to read back in high school about a rural widow woman starting her day, and one trait of hers stuck out in my mind:
She had arms strong enough to kill a hog, and a touch soft enough to wipe away her daughter's tears.

The daughter and son were nearing graduation from school, and didn't understand all the hardships their own mother had gone through in order to raise them well, considering how little education and how few resources she had.

Cause their food to rot faster or be ridden with diseases.

Summon earth golems of some kind

Send messages to their priests that the party has insulted them. After all any ordinary citizen that doesn't live in a city would probably worship her and shun the party from their villages. They'll run out of food eventually between trips to cities.

Cause any official with ties to the party to have a bad crop yield and anger the peasantry?

How angry?

If not enough to kill them, she simply makes so they will feel hunger and thirst.

Always. No matter what they eat or drink.

>High Fructose Corn Syrup wouldn't be pretty much fucking free
It's not free, the cost of corn syrup varies, but isn't that much different than sugar. And sugar in the U.S. wouldn't even be as expensive as it is if imports weren't limited in order to keep the price up.

I think bad omen stuff, like they visit a town and the next day all the plants around the inn they're staying at are dead.

Could also have some dramatic corn messages, like open an ear of corn to find it is black.

>this armchair psychology

'Benign' doesn't imply it just bounces from one extreme to the other and back again. At all. That dam- bursting thing is pop psychology at its finest. Kindness and patience are broad tendencies. The best predictor of today's behavior is yesterday's behavior, and it's not because it's going to be the complete opposite. The bait that follows is equally invalid, but if you're telling me the average Chad isn't petty compared to the average Susie I've got news.

In all fairness cornbread is only semi decent on it's own, and dry as fuck if you don't know what you're doing

But add some butter and it's top tier
Even better with honey, instant godtier

Suffering. What's not to love about it? It's a grain, that can be popped like popcorn, and also makes for a lovely ornamental.

Don't forget that it's also great with beans or baked with jalapeƱos

A curse of were-cow. Every full moon, the character turns into a cow until dawn. While in cow form, they feel strong urge to graze.
The worst part is that taste of the grass takes another week to get out of their mouth.

personally I'd go for something a little further than MILF if I really wanted to stick with the fertility thing.

Corn has an abnormal high energy yield per farmed land area. Around one and a half times potato's or three times wheat's, without the massive land preparation rice requires.

Ever wonder what makes the grass grow?

She animates all the dead who have ever nurtured her fertile soil.

Thousands of skeletons, made of rootballs and dirty, gravel and stone.
