Moluran Breadfruit

Breadfruit is a staple food source in the Moluran rainforest region and has recently made it's way to the bustling trade hub of Rassal. Apothecaries have been studying the plant and have discovered that the young roots of a Moluran Breadfruit tree can not only cure many poisons but prevent their effects, too.   This discovery lead to the production of a prototype Moluran Salve, which was used by The Elite Rassalian Guard before they went into battle during The war of Rassal's Revenge. They ingested the salve before battle to prevent the paralytic effects of Suluca Poisoning that the Mosattans were known for using in combat.
