The penance hide is obtained by a defender role after the Penance King vomits it out (after feeding it poisoned meat). Defenders must use them on the lava vent in the eastern side of the cave, making it a fuel sac. Five fuel sacs are necessary to deposit them into the chute to the west. Once all players have deposited five of their roles items, the defender can collect a Defender's flamethrower.
