Icon Amulet of the gourmand.png
An amulet that allows its wearer to eat fresh raw meat when not hungry, and drastically increases nutrition gained from them. These effects on the wearer's digestion are cumulative over time and are initially small.

An amulet of the gourmand lets you consume meat like a Carnivore without reducing your ability to consume vegetarian fare, but functions fully only after some time has passed. If you eat meat while the amulet is still attuning itself to you, you will only gain partial nutrition from any chunks you eat while above "Hungry" level. The activation time is approximately 400 turns, and you can determine how close you are to fully active by eating a chunk: the more enthusiastic the message you receive, the closer the amulet is to being fully active.

Species-Specific Mechanics

It will not grant the ability to eat meat to spriggans, vampires, mummies, or anyone with three ranks of the Herbivore mutation.

As trolls already have the gourmand mutation, this amulet will do nothing for them. Likewise, ghouls, kobolds, and felids also do not benefit from an amulet of the gourmand in any manner.


  • Prior to 0.16, ghouls benefited from an amulet of the gourmand by treating all chunks as if they were rotten, thus increasing the HP restored when consuming them.
  • Prior to 0.15, wearing an amulet of the gourmand also allowed you to consume contaminated chunks as though they were clean.
