Found in the forgotten corners of abandoned places, it has the texture of warm but slightly gritty honey. Its flavor is that of alcoholic spirits with an aftertaste of ash. No one knows whether it is made by shadowy bees, an undiscovered variety of stirge, wounded imps or something else entirely. Eating a handful will allow a person to see normally in utter darkness for half an hour. Ingesting a second handful will allow a person to travel through shadows as if they were doorways for the same length of time. Continued use blackens teeth and fingers permanently.
