Show Notes

When it comes to roleplaying games, there are many factors that can greatly influence the overall experience. One of these often overlooked but crucial elements is food. Whether in-game as a resource or in the real world as sustenance during a gaming session, food can have a significant impact on the gameplay and the enjoyment of players. In this remastered episode of the RPGBOT.Podcast, we discuss food. We discuss how food can define a scene, a setting, and a culture. We explore the starvation rules in DnD 5e and in Pathfinder 2nd edition, discuss what’s so frustrating about them, and propose some ways that you can make starvation a meaningful concept in a game where Goodberry exists.
