Starvation is the state a player enters into after losing all of its 8 fat reserves or layers. A player gradually loses fat layers by fasting without keeping its food bar above 84% for a period of time. Once all fat layers are used up, the player will no longer be able to fast and the food bar will drop to 0%. To reverse this loss of fat, stay above 84% food bar for a while by eating food such as meals, stews, casseroles, etc.


Fasting usually occurs at 6-8% remaining on the food bar and this message shows in the event window: "Your hunger goes away as you fast.". If player has fat layers then each fast will reduce a player's nutrition by 20% to a minimum of 10% where it cannot drop any lower.

Fat Reserves

As a player is able to feed itself to 100% food, it will become "full", which means the food bar is over 84%. Over time, being "full" generates fat reserves on a player. To find out how much fat reserves you have, open your character (Default C or P), then right click and Examine the dark body picture at the bottom left. Below is a list of what you will see, ranked from lowest to highest.

  • only skin and bones
  • very thin
  • a bit under nourished
  • normal build
  • well defined
  • a bit round
  • extremely well nourished
  • good reserves of fat


  • Players will stop fasting at "a bit under nourished".
  • Being "fat" does not affect your body strength.
  • Starvation itself will not kill a player.
