Black Water


Black water appears as a coal-black, sticky, and viscous liquid smelling strongly of vegetable rot, and is found in the insides of trees and other large plants (where it replaces sap), and in the ground, where it lies just below the topsoil. It is a magical substance that is a side product of qlippoth runestone, and radiates a faint necromantic aura.

Ingesting black water has the drug-like effects, as detailed below.
