Vibrant purple grains.
Physical & Chemical Properties
- Chemically Inert
- But changes from a solid to a viscous fluid when absorbing water
- Largely unresponsive to teotl probing attempts.
Used as a filler in many compounds through many disciplines:-
- Potion Making
- Volatile Material Transportation
Geology & Geography
Origin & Source
Found in the inner bark of the grass tree.
History & Usage
Purple salt is thought of as purple gold to leaders in the industry. And so to robbers. There are those who would brave a salt laden caravan, but much more thiefs are made by scrapping chunks off the walls and reselling it.
- Used as a filler in construction materials.
- Shipments are also regularly delivered to the College of Birds, though they are oddly stingy on what they use it for.
Construction IndustryThe material is mixed in with the lime, charcoal and gentler salts of those used in building homes and temples. Experiments in construction techniques have shown that the completed building will last longer, with less maintenance needed, and so reduce the amount of deforestation.
AlchemistryA purple paste can double both as a stabilizing and destabilizing agent depending on the conditions surrounding the decomposition technique(s) being used on a given substance.
The material can be used in its found state, though it would be better if they are dried first.
Manufacturing & Products
Purple salt is commonly compacted into brick forms for ease of transport.
Byproducts & Sideproducts
Purple PasteThe viscous state between being a solid and a liquid, that readily bonds to many substances without altering their chemical properties.
Salt ShellA cheap means by which commoner warriors wear small sacks of purple salt across their torso to hamper the impact from Salt Spells attacks of a salt practitioner.
The greatest concern in getting the salt is in the number of grass tress that have to be cut down and split. The whole of the tree is made use of, but doing so does take away the habitant the animals of the swamp.
Reusability & Recycling
This salt can be used and reused in a myriad of ways since they do not react to anything; and can be retrieved in the same form by which they were originally used.
Trade & Market
Cliff DirectionThe Bad Step's cavern cities and their accompanying Sinks harvest the ever useful grass tress, hoist them up the shear cliff and send them off to various markets and depots on the valley floor.
Stored as compacted bricks inside simple four sided storage rooms.
Law & Regulation
Purple Salt is not a heavily regulated product, given that they are mostly used as filler.
Extracting purple salt is such a simple and common industry in the Sinks, that they are very cheap
Grows in large quantities in areas beyond the valley
