Isn't this just a more serious level of Social Stigma - i.e. Social Stigma (not even Valuable)?. It seems like an intermediate level Valuable Property and people being eager to kill you and glad to reward your death (which is Social Stigma (Monster)). Killing you doesn't cause any trouble, but not anybody's actual goal (which would be the case for Enemy), or particularly praiseworthy.

If there's no penalty at all for killing you, and indeed, there's a reward (yum!), that suggests Enemy, not Stigma.

It's closer to Monster. People are rewarded for eating you, they get full and/or have a tasty meal. Problem is, Monster doesn't imply a particular vulnerability. The Disad I've proposed implies the sort of vulnerability present in food (immediate edibility) for the dominant campaign species.

Social Stigma (Monster) means that, regardless of your attractiveness, you are clearly identifiable as something that can and probably should be killed.

Appearance (Monstrous) means that you're so ugly a lot of people might fear you, possibly to the point of trying to preemptively kill you on the assumption you have the former Disadvantage.

It's possible to have one, both, or neither.

Nah, it's just a long-running joke on this board.

A PBM should be able to take a Classic Features (Fresh and Delicious-Smelling) [1] Perk, or even, depending on the nature of its powers, Perfume (Psi -10%) [1] for active control over how it smells.

Also, if it has Telesend, it can beg people not to eat it. That might not stop everybody, but depending on how weird the setting is a lot of people would at least find it very off-putting, even if they doubted the veracity of the experience.

It all starts in a thread that had a typo in its title: Blurberry Template

I think that's close enough, actually. Valuable property, with an extra -5 because you're not even valuable, plus Enemy group: Almost Everyone quite often. Sure they have no active animosity, but folks will attack you without a second thought if they notice you, so close enough.

Keep in mind that the template should work for a giant muffin as well. I imagine one of those "World's Largest" novelties, perhaps a 50000 HP colossus of a muffin. Chief attraction of some hamlet in the American Midwest.

It it was a lemon-poppyseed muffin, I could buy into that Classic Features perk. Using psi to justify Perfume is a fantastic idea though!
