The mini Hogswatch pudding is a misc weapon that can be lit to create both a light source and a flaming weapon. It can be refueled using brandy.

You can 'whirl' it in a number of patterns.

Long Description

At first glance this looks like a traditional Hogswatch pudding complete with currants and bits of peel and topped with icing and a sprig of mistletoe. Woe betide anyone who attempts to take a bite of this particular pudding, though, as closer examination shows that it has been baked in dwarfish fashion. The result is something as hard (and as heavy) as a rock. The currants and peel stick out like mineral crystals. Even the mistletoe decorating the top seems to have been strengthened to something more closely resembling finely tempered steel.
You get the feeling that you could check the patterns you know and attempt to whirl it in one of those patterns.

Fuel Descriptions

The description changes depending on the amount of remaining fuel.

When full: It glistens with so much alcohol that it's a wonder is doesn't dissolve.

When partially filled: It glistens with a rich sheen of brandy.

When empty: It looks somehow incomplete without the glistening shimmer of brandy.

Appraises As

The lightable mini Hogswatch pudding is roughly a couple of inches long and roughly a couple of inches wide. It is made of steel and stone and could be used as a weapon of type misc.

Notes

When lit, this is a unique weapon in that the flame has a chance to set your opponent's clothing on fire, causing extra damage and damaging the clothing.

As a light source, it produces "a bit of light".

Acquisition

Mini Hogswatch puddings can be obtained from the present dropped by the enraged giant Hogswatch tree.
