Goodberry Wine Goodberry wine is created and sold by a small sect of druids in northern Breland. Before the horrific creation and subsequent exploration of the Mournland, goodberry wine was little more than a curiosity for rich nobles. Once it was discovered that goodberry wine retains its potency within the dead grey mists it became highly sought after by mournland explorers and scavengers. A jug of the wine contains five doses, and each dose cures 8 points of damage as well as provides nourishment as if it was a normal meal for a Medium creature. An imbiber benefits from only one dose in a single 8-hour period; drinking additional doses of goodberry wine or eating additional goodberries during this time has no effect.- 250gp
