A healthstone (in SLASH'EM) is a gray stone that modifies a player's heal rate. Blessed or uncursed healthstones increase it, cursed healthstones decrease it. Unfortunately, healthstones are always generated cursed. Unlike luckstones, healthstones are cumulative - two blessed healthstones are better than one. To be precise, you have a health recovery bonus which is 2 for each blessed healthstone in your main inventory, plus 1 for each uncursed healthstone, minus 2 for each cursed healthstone. This bonus is added to your level and constitution when calculating how fast or how much you heal, i.e. if you carry 2 blessed healthstones at level 1 you will regenerate every 7th turn (as at level 5) instead of every 15th, and at level 29 you will regenerate 1d24 HP instead of 1d20 (provided your constitution is 20). Healthstones can be created with a 1 in 2 chance by upgrading flint stones.
