Shiny black berry
It looks like this:
This shiny black berry has a slightly dull star pattern at one end, where the calyx has been removed. It is squishy and the inky juice on the inside looks sweet and good to eat.
Eating a berry has the following effects which last in total for around 3.5 minutes:
- Widening the pupils (shows in the description). This results in more light sensitivity, ie daylight is too bright to see anything.
- Nausea and a temporary loss of hit points.
- Seemingly being hot and sweating.
- Temporary decrease of constitution, dexterity and intelligence that gets distributed randomly between these stats, but in the end amounts up to a value of between -6 and -9.
Eating several berries at once is not different from eating only one. Eating a berry before the effects of the previous have worn off extends the period of above effects, and can take the stats down further.
