A handful of berries can be found lying around or during the searching, mostly on the open fields. They come in three colors:

  • white/yellow
  • red
  • black/blue

Red berries can be either edible or poisonous. Black/Blue berries are always safe to eat and white/yellow berries are always poisonous. Consuming the edible ones rises both food and hydration bars while the poisonous ones, obviously, cause character to suffer from Poison status and can lead even to death.

Only characters with Botany skill can discern good from poisonous ones (automatically identifying any berries they find), as they look the same and have the same weight and value regardless of effects they cause.

Berries degrade very slowly at only 0.6% per turn. This makes them a fairly reliable store of nutrition as they last longer than meat. Four handfuls of berries have the nutritional content of one can of soup, while eight handfuls hydrate the same as a drop of water.

One berry provides 1 point (~0.6%) of nutrition and 0.5 (~0.7%) points of hydration.
