Katamordium, more commonly known by it's street name, Fey Dust is a powerful hallucinogenic made from alchemical refinement of Mercury and pollen from the Monk Cup flower.
History & Usage
Katamordium is mostly used by medics and alchemists to induce euphoria in critically or fatally sick and wounded due to its very distinctive uplifting effect coupled with usually pleasant hallucinations of non-existing colors and smells.
Cultural Significance and Usage
Katamordium is often used as a "party-drug", especially among teenagers and young adults. The material is usually diluted, dried and ground into a powder. The powder is then sold in small metal containers, mostly in packs of 3 grams called a "trove". The common street name for Katamordium is 'fey dust', named after the hallucinogenic effect of the drug. It's relatively cheep price, and the ability to mix it with other powdered materials, make the drug highly trafficked and wildly consumed.
While somewhat beneficial, the withdrawal symptoms of Katamordium usage are quite severe, leaving patients with muscle ache, dizziness and constant exhaustion. These symptoms may last anywhere from 3 days and up to a tenday. Katamordium effects last for a few hours during the first few uses but the body quickly build tolerance to the material, causing the effect to become shorter and shorter the longer the use. Abusive use often leads to serious addictions, that may cause worsening of the withdrawal symptoms with the addition of vivid nightmares and paranoia. Uncontrolled dosage may cause the body to enter a shock, causing a cardiac arrest. Curing of Katamordium addiction is nearly impossible and an immediate stop may also lead to shock in the body, often resulting in death.
