Uses

Andrea's report divides the cases into three broad groups. She cautions that those with more visible symptoms appear more frequently, which may be caused by bias in testing.

The largest and most visible group experience extreme morphological changes. Many require surgery to remove entirely new limbs, while others' records end abruptly.

(And, if you qualify for Monstrous Form)
You feel as though you've already begun walking this path yourself without ever knowing. As you consider the path, your flesh churns and rearranges itself.

The middle group show some changes, still appearing fundamentally human but different from their previous appearance. Andrea notes most of these changes sound subjectively like improvements.

The third and smallest group is the one she spends the most time on, noting commonalities of abnormal recovery rate and long-term memory loss. None of these individuals possessed valid documentation.

(And, if you qualify for Undying Will)
The wounds they've recovered from make it clear that simple wounds aren't enough to keep you down. As you push yourself, your flesh churns and rearranges itself.

And, if you don't qualify for a skill, the report is not consumed:

Although that certainly sounds familiar, it's hard to guess what lessons might be hiding in here, waiting for you.

And, if you qualify for Monstrous Form:

You've learned a new Skill: Monstrous Form

You regain X hit points!

And, if you qualify for Undying Will:

You've learned a new Skill: Undying Will

You regain X hit points!

Where X is your maximum HP.
