        That looks interesting... I kind of did something similar, but
with the corpse's stuff. I reqrote make_corpse a bit and made it so that
it worked like so:

make the obj.
loop for unequip ch and give it to corpse
loop for obj_from_char and give it to corpse
stick corpse in room
loop through all contents of corpse
  5% chance of item falling from corpse to ground with message.
  (This is kinda nasty because some items junk when they hit the ground.)
10% chance that a random amount of coins falls from corpse to ground with

I think that it would be neat to have something like:
A Fido's entrails stain your boots as you disembowel him!
> get entrails
You get the entrails of a Fido.
> eat entrails
You eat the entrails of a Fido.
Oops, it tasted rather strange!

Maybe have the first message change your boots from:
a pair of scruffy boots
a pair of scruffy boots that are stained
