Bread was available in a number of forms on Toril. Every culture on the planet was known for producing one or more specific types of bread, which resulted in an enormous variety.[6]

History[]

The nomadic Bedine and the Nexalans were known to produce their own varieties of bread.[6]

Bread was often expensive in the nation of Calimshan due to their severe shortages of grain.[7]

Reputation[]

Bread was sometimes considered the staple meal of the gods, as much as wine was considered their nectar.[6]
