Alembroth, also called “salt of wisdom”, is a crystalline stimulant and disinfectant used by clerics of the Ascendant Church in some of their rituals, notably by The Inquisition in their interrogations and exorcisms. Clerics use it for “celeritas,” to focus on their studies and to perform certain lengthy rituals which require continuous concentration. Alembroth is also used as a treatment for the venereal disease grandgore. The process of creating alembroth is supposedly a secret of the saintly order of The Physician, though the Inquisition itself seems to have developed its own means of creating the salt. Many believe that hydrargyrum is a primary ingredient.
