This question is a follow-up to Just How Dangerous Would a Plopup Be? and concerns gaining its enchantment.
You see, when any monster dies, its magical essence is released, enchanting items inside it or around its person (especially the weapon that killed it, mind you), as well as the slayer or anyone alive inside of it at the time of death. (For more on the latter, AKA surviving victims, please see this link.)
The Plopup's death effect (read: enchantment), Sevenfold, is especially valuable. An item with this enchantment will be seven times stronger (and more durable), while striking seven times faster and seven times harder. More specifically, Sevenfold armor will be seven times better at negating force (AKA absorbing force without breaking or transferring it to the wearer) and seven times harder, while a Sevenfold sword will not only strike seven times faster and seven times harder, but will be seven times harder and sharper.
On a human being, the Sevenfold enchantment makes one seven times faster, smarter, stronger, and more durable, as well as greatly enhancing their looks, skill level (for all held skills), and any enchantments they hold. As if that wasn't enough, someone with the Sevenfold enchantment is practically immune to poison and disease while having an intense healing factor, allowing them to survive losing limbs or having large chunks of their body hacked off (like an axolotl, but faster-in terms of days or weeks-, magically fueled, and a bit stronger as well).
This of course makes the Sevenfold enchantment very valuable, but getting it is very difficult. In order for a person to gain a monster's enchantment, they have to kill it with their natural weaponry (read: their body), not a weapon like a sword or even a well-timed falling boulder or be alive inside it when it is killed.
The first is almost impossible (I'm not joking, and I would strongly recommend you click on the link above and seeing exactly what a Plopup is capable of), but the second, while guaranteed to be dangerous, is much easier to accomplish, because Plopup have an unnatural penchant for eating scantily clad attractive women.
My question, therefore, is: What Is The Best Way To Gain The Sevenfold Enchantment?
- I'm looking for methods that will work either for a monster slayer or a cunning maiden, NOT one or the other. By "Best," I mean safest, most efficient, and easiest to accomplish. It should be feasible for people in Europe during the medieval era, which falls between the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Renaissance. The less magic involved the better since this is low-fantasy.
