Of all the alchemical wonders the High Elves have created, the purple smoke is the most intriguing of them all. It is created by mixing the properties of the Soltu , a flower found only in volcanic soil. The silver-blue hues of the petal bleed together and are hypnotic to behold, while the deep crimson roots thread themselves deep within the soil. When the two are combined , the resulting iridescent purple smoke induces a highly hallucinogenic state. Fatal to all but the High Elves, it causes them to be challenged by certain traits within themselves … their actions … and their world. As such, it has been adopted as a Coming of Age Ceremony. Whether the effects are a gift or a curse… remains to be seen.
