wax

molten wax is a semi hot, commercially worthless, and sticky liquid. Items containing or covered in wax are waxen or waxy. Drinking it will increase the subject's temperature by 100. It weighs 0.5 lbs per dram.

If a creature in the same phase as the wax steps on it, they must make a strength and agility save of difficulty 10 + drams/100 * 5. If they fail this save, they will become stuck for a maximum of 12 turns with a strength save of 10 * drams/100 every turn to break free.

It is one of the few liquids that can never be required in a cure for any illness or fungal infection.

If a pool of primarily wax is on the ground and the temperature drops below 25°(the base room temperature), the wax will cool into a Wax block.pngwax block if the volume is greater than or equal to 200 drams or a Wax nodule.pngwax nodule if smaller. [1]

Sources of Wax

  • Waxflab.pngwaxflab generates molten wax every few turns
  • Furniture which has candles in it (like Candelabra.pngcandelabras) will generate wax every 50-100 turns in the surrounding squares.
  • The Alchemist.pngalchemist is guaranteed to have one dram of molten wax for sale.
