Maggoty bread is a kind of food, eaten by Orcs.
Crafting[edit | edit source]
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.
Use[edit | edit source]
Eating maggoty bread heals four hunger points and has a chance (80% for neutral players) to give players the hunger effect, similar to rotten flesh. The higher the alignment with evil factions, the lower the risk of hunger. But even with +50 to all orc factions, there remains a risk of getting sick. Thus, maggoty bread is only a viable food for evil players.
Upon eating maggoty bread for the first time, you get the achievement "Three stinking days!"
