So Artyom had this white glowing powder on him and there was so much intrigue around it but any time any of us tried to roll to discover something about it, we failed. It was driving me INSANE for like, 6 sessions. But then Ryybyn managed to pick some up at the Darkwatch outpost and we had some downtime… good a time as any to find out about this stuff the hard way.
Turns out it’s powdered Crystalline Light that the Darkwatch use to keep the abyss within them at a manageable level so they don’t go all monster-y. But since Ryybyn isn’t Darkwatch, they just gave themselves radiation sickness.
