Every now and again the pursuers found things that had been dropped or cast away: food-bags, the rinds and crusts of hard grey bread. a torn black cloak, a heavy iron-nailed shoe broken on the stones.

Maggoty bread is a kind of food, eaten by Orcs.


Maggoty bread can be crafted on any of the Orc crafting tables with the same recipe as normal bread. It also is a common loot from all types of Orcs. However, because it tends to inflict food poisoning, it should only be eaten by good players in truly dire situations.

Maggoty Bread


Eating maggoty bread heals four  4  hunger points and has a 40% chance to give players the hunger effect, similar to rotten flesh. Contrary to popular belief, positive Orc faction alignment does not lower the chance of receiving this effect.

In the Renewed version, maggoty bread's hunger chance (now base 80%) decreases with increasing orc/troll alignment, up to complete safety at +250.

Upon eating maggoty bread for the first time, you get the achievement "Three stinking days!"
