The Man of Hunger

 

 

The Far Gorta, also known as The Man of Hunger, appears in periods of famine, wandering the roads, begging for charity. Even during the coldest nights of winter, he only wears tattered rags that provide no protection from the elements. His face is flayed from the weather, and he appears so emaciated and weak that he barely can raise his beggar’s cup. Those who turn away from his pitiful appearance in disgust or selfishness are punished and cursed, but those who support him despite the famine are rewarded with blessings of prosperity.
