(Written in an immaculate version of Eladrin Rellanic)
Dark substance brought to my attention by companions and rescued would-be sacrifices. Intended for ingestion according to Halfling—-Daxon Ur. Appears to be mixture of sorts, including plant, animal and extraplanar components. Black in color. Slightly viscous, but thinner than tar or tree sap. Has slight acrid odor. Note to self—-trace amounts of Halfling spittle are from the would-be victim and likely not an original ingredient.
-Procedure and Preliminary Results:
Dissolved substance into approximately one-half cup water and slowly evaporated part. Used cloth leech test with rest. Substance lost original viscosity, but retained color and odor. Identified the following components on sight/smell alone:
- Id fiend saliva
- Hunter cactus poison
- Floating mantle poison
- Kank nectar (likely used as solvent)
- Rock salt (part of buffering agent)
- Vinegar (part of buffering agent)
Only one item left unidentified. Has extraplanar signature according to Kii’na. Inclined to agree. Hypothesize that substance is from elemental chaos because it appears highly reactive. However, does not identify cleanly with one of the prime elements. Assensing might be useful, but no longer an option. Will consult with Dar when he returns from his place with Daxon. Abyuuk was called back to report to the High Singer, companions have left to investigate the cultists’ temple, so only left with Sky Singer guards and unsure if leaving would be a good idea.
Concluded that substance is same poison applied to Sky Singer victim, Thrak Moonshadow, based on comparison of symptoms with other would-be victim—-human woman, name unknown. Both are in unconscious state that mimics restless sleep—-as if plagued by nightmares. Twitching at same rate and force, so must have received similar dosage. Suspect that developing antidote will require the unknown substance.
Someone at door…wait, why am I writing this down?
