Hello,


Palladium uses the term "cannibal" in their games (PFRPG and Rifts) to describe creatures, typically humanoids, who devour the flesh of humans.Online dictionaries seem to be unanimous in the view that the term "cannibal" only applies to creatures that eat their own kind, not to non-humans that eat humans.One recent example that has come up in conversation in the forums has been Simvan, with the view that a "cannibalistic" Simvan would be one that eats other Simvan- NOT one that eats other humans.While Palladium makes it clear what they mean when they use the term, the issue here is whether or not their usage is within acceptability- whether or not their usage is in any way correct.Personally, I believe that it IS correct, in the sense that for decades the term has been commonly used to describe any sort of anthropophagite- anything that devours human beings- and that this term has been used in dictionaries in the past (whether or not this is noted online).


Please help.


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
