Painful to the point where they can't function while wearing them?
It would have to be. Blinding, convulsive, thought shattering pain. Not like "ouch you stabbed me", more like being tased continuously while bear mace was sprayed into your eyes, nose, and mouth, etc. etc.

One might argue it would be better to painlessly turn into a pillar of salt.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Wracu, some argue, are demonic in some respect.
It's possible that wracu relates to ciphrang as sranc relates to cunuroi?

Counterpoint -  Kellhus has two Ciphrang heads on his girdle and they have never been described as Wracu-like.
What is reason, but the blindness of the soul?


if Kellhus was thinking all of this, he's going to freak out when he get's back and Kelmomas is all "i lieks to eatum peeples da"

the whole thing is orchestrated by Kellhus who is wearing a Bashrag as if it were a suit

This question has been asked before and Scott's answer was close to some of the possibilities discussed (thanks Scott).  As for pain being a trade off for sorcerous invulnerability, it's not likely to be that simple.  Pain exists for a reason and not one says "holding onto red hot metal is a price I'm willing to pay for near invulnerability".  A brief exposure to chorae may merely be painful.  Prolonged exposure could be unhealthy.  Really unhealthy.
