What is the nature of this thing we cook? Or of the act itself? > Mayor nuntu.png

Freshwater with Love Latkes

congealed love, vinewafer sheaf

Whenever you drink freshwater, there's a 25% chance you beguile a creature as per Beguiling at level 7-8.
> Somewhat less broken now that drinking water takes a turn and not drinking it if you're going to throw up doesn't proc it anymore, but still a very easy way to permanently beguile a strong creature at a low level.

Creep Knish and Pistol Cheese

congealed skulk, congealed hulk honey

Whenever you perform a critical hit, you have a 50% chance to Dismember or Slam your opponent.
> Goes well with weak spotter. the dismember/slam only works with adjacent opponents, but still powerful.

Roasted Glimmer Increaser

lava, convalessence

Can use Pyrokinesis at level 1-2. If you already have Pyrokinesis, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels.
Can use Cryokinesis at level 1-2. If you already have Cryokinesis, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels.
> Intended to be ingredients that can be easily found, with 2 mental mutations that, if you have a decent ego bonus, can push your glimmer over the threshold to start finding hunters early. Somewhat annoying to properly get even with Carbide Chef's three chances. If you have Spicer, you could also use bananas as a third mental mutation.

Spooky Doughnut and Lag Pastry in Velvety Mazebeard

dried lah petals, mashed lag, mazebeard gland paste

+2 MA.
+4 Willpower.
Can use Confusing Breath at level 5. If you already have Confusing Breath, it's enhanced by 5 levels.
> A boost to Mental Armor and immunity to Confusion makes this recipe very useful for fighting espers.

Lusty Pastry with Fungus Knish and Grilled Bananas

congealed love, pickled mushrooms, sun-dried banana

+4 Ego.
Whenever you eat a mushroom, you identify all artifacts on the local map.
> No more blind purchases! Eating a pickled mushroom will let you identify merchant inventories without telemetry, and if you find something you like, the extra Ego will make sure it is within reach.

Hot Pastry with Moss Knish and Grilled Elder Flamebeard

concentrated flamebeard gland paste, crushed grave moss, cured dawnglider tail

Can use Fire Breath at level 10. If you already have Fire Breath, it's enhanced by 10 levels.
Whenever you deal fire damage, there is a 10% chance you cause plants to spontaneously grow in a nearby area.

Cool Soup in Starapples, Boar Jerky, and Dolma

boar jerky, starapple jam, convalessence

Can use Ice Breath at level 1-2. If you already have Ice Breath, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels. Whenever you drop below 20% HP, you stop bleeding.
