Non-Magical Techniques
- [Obstacle 0] eat ridiculously spicy/sour/bitter foods without any outward sign of discomfort
- [Obstacle 0] throw up on command
- [Obstacle 1] swallow and regurgitate inedible objects unharmed (stones, sword, goldfish, etc)

Magical Techniques
- [Obstacle 1] gain some sustenance from eating inedible things
- [Obstacle 1] learn some secret about something you have in your mouth
- [Obstacle 1] launch something in your mouth or stomach out of you with unbelievable force
- [Obstacle 2] gain deep insight into something you have in your mouth
- [Obstacle 2] take on the properties of something you just ate, often by manifesting some Tell or Accessory
- [Obstacle 2] store something in a timeless pocket dimension inside of your stomach OR in a somewhat-fragile stasis prison (bubbles, eggs, gems, etc)
- [Obstacle 2] consume vast quantities of food to repair physical or emotional damage
- [Obstacle 3] absorb all of the knowledge of a thing within you, making them a part of you
- [Obstacle 3] perform internal alchemy, fusing the properties of things you have inside of yourself
- [Obstacle 3] perform conceptual fission inside of your stomach - splitting two combined things (either created through internal alchemy or in some other way) — into their constituent parts

Performing Internal Alchemy has one of two effects. Either, you use it to grant yourself a very short-term ability that can be reasonably described as a combination of the things you've consumed — i.e. if you swallowed a fiddle and Principal Entropy it would make sense for you to gain the power to sing songs that transform birds into Ogres — OR allow you to regurgitate a chimera of the alchemized items — i.e. spitting out First Chair Entropy, a maestro whose viol drips with the black ichor of evil!
