I think bacon is under-powered

    As the finest chef in Beran's Reach, I can say that I have sampled many a delightful food this game has had to offer and enjoy hunting/fishing, cooking and then eating the wild animals of Novia to no end. There are few recipes I have not made, and dream of the day I will be able to craft them all regularly - however, one thing that I feel is more understated than most food benefits is the bonus that comes with eating bacon.

    I think we all agree that bacon is one of nature's most perfect foods. Something that is loved the wold over for its known psychological benefits. Was it not Hernando de Soto who famously said, upon reaching the new world, "Vale, cocinemos el tocino." Therefore, to see such a meager +3 Health per second and +.8 combat health per second for 30 minutes seems almost an injustice!

    I propose the following buff replacement to give bacon its proper due in the game:
    +25 Health
    +1 Combat Health per second

    for 1 minute

    This would give bacon the due it deserves as being something that you can never have enough of and fills you with joy.

    Your humble servant,

    While your "imaginations" regarding de Soto gave me a good chuckle, let's talk about what your buff increase really means.
    It means that you would have to eat every 30 seconds, if you want to keep it.

    Sorry, but for a minute it sounded as if you were actually serious.

    Most respectfully,

    I thought about that and while the idea of eating bacon every 30 second make me smile, I realized it would be impractical. 1 minute is far more reasonable.

    So instead of a conversation, your response is to try to arrogantly make me feel lesser as you claim are privy to some secret knowledge I lack?

    You make me sad, so be it.

    I apologize if it came across as arrogance, and I admit I should have just left it alone.
    Most of it was tongue-in-cheek to be sure.
    I should not have responded at all, and wish you the best....

    Just add optional ingredients that give bonuses and have bacon be one of them. That way you can bacon-wrap all tha things. Bacon Wrapped Boar Ribs, bacon wrapped cole slaw, bacon wrapped sugar cookies, and so forth. ^^

    I think the op has great ideas. Now to get some love to cooking by adding more skills since it only has 1 measly skill such as cooking enhancements to improve recipes and chance of fun cooking flukes like burnt food that makes your character make a groaning and yuk sound for example. Great for role players

    While I agree with all of this, it does not go far enough. Bacon is an ADDITIVE - so it should be able to be added to all buffs and blessings currently in game.
