Gorging damage is a type of damage that leaves a wound that will continue to do damage to the player gradually over time. It often spells doom for players whom it catches unawares.
Because it is not a status ailment, it cannot be undone with the Mama Mia Pasta Sauce or by sustaining critical damage. Because it is not a curse, it cannot be lifted through balancing karma, a wizard or wizardette, or by mating with a She-Dwarf. It can only be treated with the First-Aid skill, which is not hereditary and can only be learned through the Scroll of First-Aid.
