1. Downers
 [Related Image] A bowl of pills found by Dickon of Team 6 of Series 4. He picked up only one of the pills (Treguard warned the team not to be greedy), but an image of the entire bowl appeared on the status board.

Consuming a Downer caused the dungeoneer to shrink, such that he was able to proceed through a small door. In the next chamber, Dickon found a bowl of Uppers that restored him to his original size. These were rare examples of a dungeoneer physically consuming an edible item, rather than putting it in the knapsack to restore life force.

The Downer pills have been interpreted by some as a drugs reference, but are more likely inspired by the 'DRINK ME'/'EAT ME' moments of Alice in Wonderland.
