Gore powder – conventionally just called “Gore” – is a drug designed for humans by magical drug dealers. Highly addictive, it removes all pain and discomfort, temporarily enhancing physical strength and mental ability far beyond the human’s natural or practiced skills.
It lasts exactly sixty hours from inhaling it, and the moment it fades, leaves the human exhausted to the point of near-coma. Originally developed as a means to make humans better laborers, it became a common street drug until its creators were found and summarily brought to justice.
Rumor has it the spell recipe is still out there somewhere, but it hasn’t been seen since Solomon’s Choice – called Iskinder’s Gamble in the scientific community – made magical gene-splicing possible, eliminating the need to obtain expensive and dangerous drugs to reach magical heights of skill.
