Magical Pies: Winkleberry Pie Of Extra Energy

In the Small Folk lands of Bilovia and Cerotania, they grow a very unusual type of berry called a winkleberry. These berries, besides tasting of watermelon, cherries and vanilla, are packed with a form of magical energy. A pocket pie made from these berries will give a person great vigor for up to an hour. Up to three pies can be eaten in a row, one per hour, before the person who has eaten them will collapse and fall into a deep sleep.

Winkleberry Pies of Extra Energy do not keep as long as most other magical pies. Unless coated with a grease or fat of some sort, they will only last about 6 days. The grease coating (butter is a favorite) will double this.

Magical Pies: Banana Cream Pie Of Dreamwalking

The pastrymancers of Banzib-By-The-Bay are generally thought to be the kings & queens of pie making and the Banana Cream Pie Of Dreamwalking is one of their most delicious and powerful pies. They are also very expensive full sized pies that cost around $200.00 each.

These pies are used by groups of exactly eight people to enter the Dreamworld that exists just beside the Real World. While there, they can learn things, travel from one part of the Real World to another very rapidly or even take Dreamworld things back into the Real World. One slice of pie is all it takes to Dreamwalk, but the pie must be eaten within 24 hours of coming out of the oven.

Magical Pies: Steak & Potato Pie Of Duplication

Another great magical pie from the pastrymancers of Banzib-By-The-Bay, these pies are absurdly complicated to make, but have an astounding effect once consumed. Simply put, they cause you to become two exact copies of yourself.

Once you are two, you can communicate telepathically and in most cases, this allows you to seriously kick ass in most endeavors. The effect lasts for several hours and if one of you dies, it’s no big deal.

As you might expect that makes these pies very popular. Unfortunately, the highly specialized ingredients and the complex creation and baking of the pies (taking upwards of two weeks) causes them to be too expensive for most folks at $1,500.00 per pocket pie. Another problem is that in most kingdoms, they are either illegal or highly regulated.

On the plus side, they’ll keep for as long as 90 days.

Magical Pies: Strawberry Pie Of Life Energy

Take a regular strawberry pie, infuse it with life energy taken from the statue of the Green Mother Goddess and you have a Strawberry Pie Of Life Energy. Once wrapped in the leaves of a luluku tree, the pie will stay fresh for a week.

Magical Pies: Cherry Pie Of Love

On Fantasy Earth 24-B, the making of magical potions, which universally tasted terrible and had a very short shelf life, has given way to the baking of little individual pies that not only convey magical effects, they taste great.

The first pie we’ll cover is the Cherry Pie of Love. If two people share this pie, they will find themselves falling deeply in love. The effects last for upwards of a year and if the people were in love to begin with, will last a lifetime.

Should only one person eat a pie, he or she will be filled with love for all his/her fellow sentients. This becomes problematic when that person enters a land inhabited by, say, goblins or orcs or demons.

If two people who hate each other share a pie, they will become tolerant and maybe even casually friendly. This is why diplomats often carry several of these pies on peace talk missions.

The secret to the best Cherry Pies of Love is to use tree ripened cherries from trees older than ten years and to put a bit of honey in each pie. These pies will keep unrefrigerated for up to a month.

Magical Pies: Apple & Pear Pie Of Bravery

Our next magical pie is made with apples and pears that only grow in the mana rich soil of the Daza Mountains and the Uilon Valley. In fact, the apples and pears of this region are only ever used for magical pies.

Although these pies take at least two days to prepare and bake, they will keep for at least two months. The great Dragonslayer, Sir Garnagan of Waladis, once ate an Apple/Pear Pie of Bravery that was four months old. It imbued him with such bravery that he slew the Great & Ancient Wyrm of the South in less than 15 minutes. Of course, he did lose both legs and an eye, but still…

These pies are about 25% smaller than most pocket pies and cost anywhere from $5.00 to $9.00 each.
