There are fourteen known poisons that cannot be easily recovered from without resorting to magic, although most people have access to or own an amulet against poison, and there are antidotes and antivenin for nearly every major poison. Most are things that people are aware of. Additionally, it is said that most people are immune to things that once were poisons – a probably an outcome of the last Skyfall. Poisons known are classified according to how they enter the body.

The known poisons in current use are limited in number but are prized and their formulas kept deeply and utterly secret – Envoys are known to make use of them. The recipes are often convoluted and complex, somewhat alchemical, a bit of physic, relying on all manner of strange and peculiar ingredients.

Bleakfog

This dense smoke like fog, a pale white shot through with grays and even hints of blue, is one of the most terrifying of things one can encounter. It billows out, and even the merest touch of it will immediately cause intense pain, raising white pus filled blisters on any area exposed to it, killing nearly instantly should it be inhaled, and causing intense agony that never lets up.

Yet for all the cruel, malicious evil of the stuff, it has a relatively simple cure: saltwater. Bathing in saltwater or hot springs will cause it to heal wounds as it rubs off.
