Everburn was a thick, viscous paste derived from Hollerbat guano, used by the Grottan Clan as fuel for fire and torches. The dung would be collected in barrels and taken to apothecaries, who would combine it with stabilizing and sterilizing salts, then store the resulting paste in jars. Everburn could be stored like this indefinitely, and was notable for having little odour when burned. Its name came from how the substance could burn for days when mixed with candle tallow.[1]
