Hello, . icanthepowerr here with my Torture Comp Part
II. Since the First one did so well, I decided to check out the
comments and take the suggestions into consideration.
The descriptions for the devices weren' t long enough so
I' m going to add the FULL descriptions for each of them.
Just a fair warning, inba ; , I had people asking for longer
descriptions, so here ya go.
1. The Brazen Bull
Its inventor, Perilous of Athens, proposed to Phalanx a tyrant, the need of a
more painful way to kill criminals. This was done hoping to discode the poor
population from committing any more crimes.
As the story goes, when Perilous finished the brazen bull, Phanaria asked
Periling to try it out by himself. He then ordered him locked inside the brazen
bull and set a fire underneath it. He was very pleased with the results. Being
burned alive was a very exciting act to watch.
When a victim is placed inside the brazen bull, he or she is slowly burned to
death. This device gradually became more sophisticated until the Greek
invented a system of tubes in edema make the victim' s screams
sound like an infuriated ox.
Even though this torture was not used " frequently during the Middle Ages
as it was used earlier by the Greek and Romans, it was still used in Central
Europe. This torture is similarly being boiled alive.
2. The Chair of Torture
Also known as the Judas Chair, the Chair was a terrible device of
the Middle Ages. it was used until the late 1800' s in Europe.
There are many variants of the chair. They all have one thing in common:
spikes coverted back, afforests, seat, legaleses and footprints. The number of
spikes in one of these chairs ranges from to 1, 50th
To avoid movement, the victim' s wrists were tied to the chair or, in one
version, two bars pushed the arms against afforests for the spikes to
penetrate the flesh even further. in some versions, there were holes under
the chairs bottom where the torturer placed coal to cause severe burns while
the victim still remained conscious.
This instrument' s strength lies primarily in the psychological fear caused on
the victims. It was a common practice to extract a confession by forcing the
victim to watch someone else be tortured with this instrument.
The time of death greatly varied ranging from a few hours to a day or more. no
spike penetrated any vital organ and the wound was closed by the spike itself
which delayed blood loss greatly.
it The Pear of Anguish
The Pear of Anguish was used during the Middle Ages " a way to torture
women who conducted a miscarriage, liars, blasphemers and homosexuals.
A heartshaped instrument was inserted into one of the victim' s o _ ices: the
vagina for women, the anus for homosexuals and the mouth for liars and
The instrument consisted leaves that slowly separated from each other
the torturer turned the screw at the tap. It was the maturer' s decision ta
simply (earths skin or expand the "pear" to its maximum and mutilate the
The Pear Languish was usually very adorned to differentiate between the
anal, vaginal and oral pears. They also varied in size accordingly.
This torture very rarely provoked death, but was often followed by other
4. The Street sweepers Daughter
Very possibly called the Street sweepers Daughter afterthe scavengers
England, this device was mostly used in Russia and the Middle
The Street sweepers by compressing the victim' s body; just
like The Rack, but inversely so. The torturer could tighten the device or
loosen it up, depending on the victim' s offense.
This device although not very , was often employed publicly to
humiliate the victim. Those particularly hated individuals were often at the
mercy of an angry crowd that often threw stones and fecal mains to the
The immobilized victim was led to madness, as the torture
period could last for weeks or months.
5. The Head Crusher
The head widely used during most atthe Middle Ages, especially
the Inquisition. With the chin placed overhue bottom bar and the head under
the upper cap, the torturer slowly turned the screw pressing the bar against
This resulted in the head being slowly compressed. First the teeth are
shattered into the jaw; then the victim slowly died with agonizing pain, but not
before his eyes were squealed from his sockets.
This instrument was a formidable way to extract confessions from victims "
the period of pain could be prolonged for many hours if the torturer chose to.
This could be done by repeatedly turning the screw bath ways.
if the torture was stopped midway, the victim often had irreparable damage
done to the brain, iaw or eyes.
Many variants of this instrument existed, some that had small containers in
from of the eyes to receive them " they fell out Ttheir sockets.
And now for the worst of all...
It Lego Torture
Mast commonly used on children or their parents, this method comes into
play after a child finishes playing with his leans, and while picking them up,
When the child or parent is leaving the room, they step on a causing
terrible, agonizing pain. This method is not farms faint hearted.
Sorry I didn' t make a 10 comp, I would have had room to,
but people were asking for longer descriptions. So, sorry.
I' m also still taking suggestions for improvements to this
comp, or ideas for a different comp.
