Cloudflesh appears very much like greyish tofu, lightweight and gelatinous. It is a miraculous substance, and responsible for feeding a great deal of the empire.
A single “finger” of cloudflesh can be boiled in large pot of snowmelt. The result is a thick pasty gruel, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. This gruel is moderately nutritious, and the flesh itself does not spoil and is easy to transport. As a result, cloudflesh has become the staple of the empire.
Known as loomi’sarko by the elves, cloudflesh is farmed from the clouds by the elves of the Great Glacier and traded to the remainder of the Empire. The widespread use of cloudflesh has made vegetables and fruits in small amounts necessary to stave off scurvy and other nutritional deficiencies. Some communities are forced to boil pinecones and needles into their gruel to accomplish this. However, fruits themselves are incredibly valuable when they can be found, selling for up to 50 gp each.
