Volatile chemicals - Notes on experimental chemistry.
In order to ease the mining Process, my colleagues and I
decided we needed something stronger than picks to delve
under the digsite. As I already had an intermediate knowledge of
herblaw, I experimented on certain chemicals, and invented a
compound of tremendous power, which, if subjected to a spark
would literally explode. We used vials of this compound with
great results, as it enabled us to reach further than ever before.
Here is what I have left of the compound's recipe:
1 measure of ammonium nitrate powder,
1 measure of nitroglycerin,
1 measure of ground charcoal.
1 measure of ?
Unfortunately the last ingredient was not written down, but we
understand that a certain root grows around these parts that
was used to very good effect...
