## Long Description

Two feet across and nearly four inches thick, this is a generous slice of a truly prodigious black pudding, large enough for even the Hogfather to use as a breakfast plate and not have to come back for seconds. Some thoughtful soul has attached a pair of straps to the back so that it can be used as a shield.

## Appraises As

The slice of black pudding is about two feet long and about two feet wide. It is black and is made of blood, oats, salt, spices, suet and natural flavourings and looks like it could be held as a shield.

## Notes

It can be repaired by pouring blood on it:

You pour six ounces of blood onto the slice of black pudding.
Your slice of black pudding soaks up the blood, looking glossier and more solid afterwards.
