A length of brinestalk wrapped in oil-sodden cloth.

Perfect

The torch is the first light source the player will come across in the game. Unlike many other light sources, torches have unique applications in combat. If something is hit with a torch, be it in a hand or after being thrown, the temperature is increased by 3d203-60 (Avg: 31.5), but the total cannot exceed 400. This is sufficient to burn Web.pngwebs with 1-2 attacks.

Because there is no combat stats attached to it, by default it will use the Cudgel weapon skill and deal ♥1d21-2 (Avg: 1.5) damage with a maximum of 4 PV.

Levels of Fuel

A fresh torch starts with enough light for 5,000 player turns. The torch will have their status appended to their display name according to how many turns are left.

Turns Left Display (lit) Display (unlit)
5000-3501 blazing unburnt
3500-2001 bright half-burnt
2000-501 dim mostly burnt
500-1 smouldering nearly extinguished
