Salt is a very common liquid found throughout the land in and surrounding Qud. The ground's primary liquid is considered salt, so all liquids that are poured on an empty tile becomes mixed with salt as well. It has no worth, because of how commonly it can be found. If salt is in a liquid, it will be salty or brackish.

Sources of Salt

  • Salt weep.pngsalt weeps and Giant salt weep.pnggiant salt weeps, which can be found in fungal biomes, the Rainbow wood center.pngRainbow Wood, historic sites, or occasionally in other locations.
  • The Alchemist.pngalchemist is guaranteed to have one dram of salt available for purchase.
  • If you want salt for non-recipe cooking, a dillute variant may be used. Made by scooping some salty water from nearby pool, pouring it on ground then gathering it back up.

Uses of Salt

Consuming Salt

When consumed, unless they have Amphibious mutation.pngAmphibious (D), it will return the following message:

Blech, it's salty!

Drinking salt will increase thirst by -100,000 for each dram of salt consumed. For example. if one dram of brackish water is consumed which is 50/50 each salt and water, it will replenish 5,000 thirst (from 0.5 drams water) and lose -50,000 thirst (from 0.5 drams salt). Because of this, salt water will not satiate thirst and is worthless in trade.
