Option to liquidate corpses into negative attribute boosters

Corpse liquidation creates a booster with negative attribute affects and no positive affects; however, consuming one adds to a badge counter (this player badge can be set to public or made private).

Purpose(s):
-Player roleplay (e.g you can only enter this corp after you've consumed 75 corpses).
-Bragging rights on PvP handicaps (i.e. I still beat you even after drinking the blood of my enemies).

Variations:
Stronger variants of negative boosters depend on the meta level of the implants within the corpse. No you cannot harvest those implants. Implant harvesting would be bad for the implant market.

Design:
-From a game 'rating' standpoint, morality does come in to play. For this reason, game developers are discouraged from giving positive benefits to the act human cannibalism. Consuming this "distilled life-force" does not help your character, however, in the context of an open sandbox, people are free to take actions deemed as a social evil in order to fit in with the fringes of society. In comparison to combat games with a Teen rating standard, you'd be doing an act similar to punching an energy 'orb' out of another combatant (with non-visible bloody violence). The liquidation process is inferred but not seen, (similar to the act of recycling a character) there is no blood or gore visible.
-Liquidated corpse container could take the form of a Viking drinking horn. If you have any CCP dev corpses in your hangar...Skál!

Further Discussion:
-Does corpse consumption have a place in New Eden?
-Should players be allowed to consume another player's corpse?
-What are the extent and duration of penalties placed upon a player for participating in this game mechanic roleplay?

Only if it can apply to current stock of corpses as well.

Because over 2000 corpses makes plenty of red Slurpee's.

I would like to see it be retroactive. I'm not sure about CCP's ability to track when those corpses were made (for applying corpse quality from a pod killmail archive).

Let this also generate a list of the corpses you've consumed. Nixon likes his lists.

I sell childrens' organs to zoos.

A list of corpses consumed would also be a nice way of cross checking for users that boost consumption amounts with their own corpses. Frankly, eating yourself out can be fun sometimes. Big smile

A Viking drinking horn would be suitable for this occasion.

I'm open to the option of being able to get naked and drink blood (or corpse smoothies) as advertised in an official event video.

Breaking Bad isn't the only piece of popular media to dispose people/characters with acid.

-The DIP in Who Framed Rodger Rabbit
-Disposing of Marvin in Pulp Fiction
-Dissolving people into red goo in The Matrix

OP, what about instead of 'drinking' a liquefied player, this act of dissolving a player creates a nutrient bath that augments your pod capsule in some way (e.g scan resolution, warp speed, pod structure health, etc). These attributes would be impacted by the strength of the implants in the corpse being liquidated.

I'm still up for having shareable stats for the number of corpse liquidated for nutrient baths.

@Jadek Kin

I like the thought, but you're going to run into issues with people saying there is a power disparity between people who can collect and dissolve "expensive" corpses, compared to those who don't have the ISK or access.

Making corpse consumption only award negative bonuses is probably going to be easier for the community to swallow purely from a balance point of view.
