Piece of raw meat is one of the basic types of food in ADOM. Raw meat is very highly satiating for trolls as well as Barbarians and Beastfighters of all races, and provides a bit more satiation than usual for orcs. (Though drakelings are the only other race that actually enjoy eating raw meat, they do not seem to get any bonus satiation from eating it)

Pieces of raw meat can be given to some monsters, including cats, to pacify them. When cooked they become pieces of fresh meat.


For Barbarians, Beastfighters and trolls, they are very efficient sources of satiation, since the satiation value is tripled. Orcs get double value, and orcish beastfighters and barbarians receive 3x satiation. For most races they provide roughly the same amount of satiation as large rations, at a tenth of the weight. They are very susceptible to rotting, however, and should be eaten as soon as found if possible.

Pieces of meat are the only known food items that cave tigers can be given (they refuse rat corpses), making them also useful for safely pacifying these creatures if given in large amounts.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Most trolls start with a piece.
