That's pretty messed up. At least the other villagers got the message and probably weren't stupid enough to eat/drink the mushrooms after that....right?
Well, if you use a lower level Poison Mushroom, they all eat it and all get sick, right?
Lol, I just had a funny thought; I bet the Witch Princess's Love Points would skyrocket after an event like that.
Witch Princess: "Wow, Pete...I am SO hot for you right now. Too bad you're dead."
