Keif


The name keif refers to both a desert cactus and the narcotic drug made from that plant’s milk. Keif is illegal in most countries, but where legal the quality and price are strictly regulated. A rare few spellcasters use keif as a means to deepen their understanding of magic. Known as sahir-afiyun, a phrase meaning “sorcerer of sleep,” these spellcasters believe that using the drug expands their minds to greater possibilities and thus greater magics. Most sahir-afiyun are arcane spellcasters.
