This potent herb is often smoked by the tribal bards of the Powi. Reputed to give great clarity of thought and increased sharpness of mind,the bards often smoke it heavily,right before they are set to take part in the famous poetry contests that are so beloved by the chiefs of their people. Great will be the honor and pride of the one who succeeds in making up the best poem on the spot about anything at all that the chief chooses to make the subject matter. Thus,the bards are careful to see to it that their minds will be ready for the creative fest they are set to take part in soon. This where the Duvall Baccie comes in.
The Baccie is derived from the tiny scales of the mildy venomous Horank lizard,a reptile that is believed to posses magical propeties. For this reason,the baccie obtained from it's scales is extremely prized,which means that only those of high social status can smoke it.
The tribal herbalist collects the tiny scales and then pounds them into a fine,light dust. The dust then has genarous amounts of Juhal fruit juice extract added to it, The latter catches fire very easily,and thus helps the flames consume the dust rapidly. The Duval baccie is then sold in little leather rolls to the bards who slip it into the folds of their loin cloths. They smoke it using their great wooden pipes.
A word of caution to those who choose to smoke it liberally. Prolonged use of Duvall Baccie ucases severe memory loss and in extreem cases,even dementia. The mild venom present in the scales does not loose it's potency when bruned,and when inhaled into the nostrils,will cause long term damage to the brain,inspite of boosting it's prowess temporarily.
