In game information

Description: The listed price is for a day’s worth of food. This bland food is usually some kind of hard tack, jerky, and dried fruit, though the contents vary from region to region and the race of those creating it. As long as it stays dry, it can go for months without spoiling.


As a special treat for my pathfinder group, i decided to make my own variation of the trail ration. It surely does not provide you a days worth of food, but it is something you can offer in your gaming sessions. I chose spice dried meat to go along with the mild cheese biscuits, enjoy!


Meat Jerky

250 g Lean strips of beef
1 tbs Soy sauce
1/3 tsp Cayanne pepper
0,5 tsp Ground black pepper
0,5 tsp Salt

Cheese biscuits

4 dl White flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1,5 dl Grated mozzarella
1,5 dl Milk
20 g Butter (melted)
1 Egg (beaten)


Meat Jerky

  1. Put the strips of beef into a plastic bag.
  2. Tenderize the meat using a mallet.
  3. Mix soy sauce, salt, cayanne pepper and black pepper in a small bowl.
  4. “Knead” the spice mix into the meat for couple of minutes until it is evenly spread.
  5. Place the meat into a food dehydrator and dry it overnight (about 8 hours)
  6. Store the ready meat jerky strips in a airtight container.

Cheese biscuits

  1. Set the oven to 200°C.
  2. In a bowl, mix well the flour, baking powder, salt and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Add in the melted butter and milk.
  4. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it to a 0,5 cm thick layer.
  5. Fold the dough on itself and roll it again to about 0,5 cm thick layer.
  6. Fold and roll the dough one more time, but this time leave it about 1cm thick.
  7. Cut the biscuits using a small cup or cutter.
  8. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and brush them with a beaten egg.
  9. Bake the biscuits in the oven for 10-15 minutes.


– Do not use too much strenght while tenderizing the meat.
– Meat jerky is ready when it has turned almost black in colour.
– Be sure to dry the meat completely!
