Nutmeg is the name of the fifth episode of “Browsing around the clove”. This ground spice has, like all the other spices, many benefits, but if consumed in excessive amounts, the nutmeg powder may produce allergic reactions, dermatitis, or psychoactive effects.

It is therefore important to be aware of its use. Something like what will happen to Magellan and his fleet during this episode. First, for having incorrectly calculated distances, hunger and consequently scurvy, will take over the crew. And then, once they reach the mainland, on the peaceful island of Guam. The Armada de Molucca will react negatively against its indigenous people (the Chamorros) who will not understand the use of violence, as Stefan Zweig detailed:

Ein paar ihrer Hütten werden niedergebrannt, aber zu einem wirklichen Kampf kann es gar nicht kommen, denn diese armen Naturkinder sind derart unbelehrt in der Tötekunst, daß, als ihnen plötzlich die Pfeile der Spanier im blutenden Körper stecken, sie gar nicht verstehen, wie von der Ferne aus diese spitzen, gefiederten Dinger ihnen tief unter die Haut fahren konnten und jetzt so schrecklich weh tun. Verzweifelt zerren sie und ziehen sie an den Pfeilen und flüchten dann in wildem Tumult vor den abscheulichen weißen Barbaren in die Wälder zurück.
