Lump of gelee royal ( % )
Item Type Food
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 1
Material Nonmetallic

Lumps of gelee royal are a rare item generated by beehives. When eaten, gelee royal cures both sickness and poison, and may increase Appearance by 1. If the character has scars from the Healing tissue corruption, eating gelee royal also removes 1-2 scars, although it will not undo the attribute reductions caused by scars.


Gelee royal provides a huge amount of satiation, equal to elven bread and surpassed only by (blessed) stomafillia. The fact that it cures sickness and poison means it can save the PC's life in three different ways, although it may not be the best option in the midst of combat, due to the multiple turns required to eat and the speed penalties associated with satiation. The bonus to Appearance helps to delay new corruptions, however a single point is not very significant, and the rarity of gelee royal makes it an ineffective tactic for acquiring a high appearance rating.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Lumps of gelee royal are found exclusively in beehives. They are not guaranteed to be in every hive, but it is possible to find more than one in the same hive. Gelee royal is only generated when the hive is destroyed; beehives cannot be milked by any means.
