Using foods and items already in the game?
Why there is entire lists I’d like seen being offered just using what currently in the game.
Got ash? Water/ice? Plant fibers? Could make a Gladiator’s Drink.
We already have berries and seeds. Why not a trail mix?
We already have plant fibers, berries, Seeds, why not a simple salad?
We have eggs, we have bread, why not some desserts with some berries? Can make a whole variety of desserts.
Can make seeded bread, with breads and seeds.
Can make jam from berries.
Introduction of new food preservations could be added also, using historical references:
Pickling, with alcohol for example. Or jugging.
And with items like planters, burial could be made possible.
Could have a whole variety of foods items being added through pickling, pickled eggs for one. Meats. Different variety.
Jugging would require the use of the earthen pots, (like the ones used for bombs) and sewing the meat. Sometimes with alcohol or even its own blood, (could throw in some demon blood in the mix to make things spicy.)
Burial is another food preservation technique that people used to store food in salty or dry earth. Sometimes frozen earth, so could add some ice or black ice there.
Then you can really go for some really weird drinks, (do yourself a favor And skip the next section if your squeamish.)
A lot of times many of us have pet thralls that die and we harvest their corpses.
Some cultures made drinks, alcoholic ones, from their animals. An infusion of their “essence” to impart on to the drinker, there are variations of this from all over, research “Snake Wine”, or you know - don’t.
One of those, “I will never try that, ever.” Kind of drinks is dung alcohol. Some cultures do it, and a few years ago - there was a trend doing it in a lot of breweries. But hey, we have dung in the game. [/spoiler]
I had to do a lot of research back in the day for my degree into alcohol. It lead to some very weird places.
But personally, I’d love to see that gladiator drink. But I’d also love to see other ideas mentioned here in this thread made into the game also - other people had some great ideas!
