Maggoty bread is a kind of food, eaten by Orcs.
Maggoty bread can be crafted on any of the Orc crafting tables with the same recipe as normal bread. It also is a common loot from all types of Orcs. However, because it tends to inflict food poisoning, it should only be eaten by good players if you're really low on food and have nothing else available to eat.
Eating maggoty bread heals four hunger points and has a chance (80% for neutral players) to add the hunger effect, similar to rotten flesh. The higher your alignment with evil factions, the lower the risk of hunger. But even with +50 to all orc factions, there remains a risk of getting sick. Thus, maggoty bread is a viable food for all evil players
Upon eating maggoty bread for the first time, you get the achievement "Three stinking days!"
