Dwarven Mortar

A fine grey powder that, when mixed with water, becomes a noisome sludge. When mixed with any liquid containing alcohol it turns into a fine mortar that bonds stone to stone immediately and will be as strong as the stone itself. An experienced or patient mason can cross a chasm by building a rock bridge under themselves.

Dwarven mortar is rare and the recipe is lost, except perhaps to dwarves. A one-stone bag will join, roughly, 150 stones and require four wineskins of liquid to mix. Once mixed, unused mortar will set up in a few hours and become unworkable.

  1. Will it bind stone to other objects? What about simply spreading it on armor and letting it set?
