To work the magic the characters must bewail the fact that they have no food, and declare that they will make “stone soup” to fill their bellies. At this time the soup stone is placed in the pot full of water, and the fire set below it. Then one after the other each person that will eat of the “stone soup” must “remember” a small horde of food, and add it to the pot (their pinch of food.). An hour after this ceremony is complete, the soup. A thick and tasty mix of what ever little bits of food were added, can be eaten. In spite of the fact that each person contributed but a pinch of food, each will get their fill. One day of food can be stretched to cover a week in this fashion. The stone can be used repeatedly, but never more than once a day.
And just for kicks, when I tried to put this picture:
Into photoshop, it decided to glitch and give me this beauty
I expect this shit from Newt not Adam
