Foraging In The WildernessCharacters can gather food and water as the party travels at a normal or slow pace on foot. A foraging character makes a Wisdom (Survival) Check whenever you call for it, with the DC determined by the abundance of food and water in the region.
|Food & Water Availability||DC|
|Abundant food and water sources||10|
|Limited food and water sources||15|
|Very little, if any, food and water sources||20|
Food And WaterCharacters who don't eat or drink suffer the effects of Exhaustion. Exhaustion caused by lack of food or water can't be removed until the character eats and drinks the full required amount.
FoodA character needs one pound of food per day and can make food last longer by subsisting on half rations. Eating half a pound of food in a day counts as half a day without food. A character can go without food for a number of days equal to 3+ his or her Constitution Modifier (minimum 1). At the end of each day beyond that limit, a character automatically suffers one level of Exhaustion. A normal day of eating resets the count of days without food to zero.
WaterA character needs one gallon of water per day, or two gallons per day if the weather is hot. A character who drinks only half that much water must succeed on a DC15 Constitution Saving Throw or suffer one level of Exhaustion at the end of the day. A character with access to even less water automatically suffers one level of Exhaustion at the end of the day. If the character already has one or more levels of Exhaustion, the character takes two levels in either case. Horses and other creatures require different quantities of food and water per day based on their size. Water needs are doubled if the weather is hot.
