Draught of Living Death
hp.png Draught of Living Death Mind

This is an extremely powerful sleeping draught that sends the drinker into a death-like slumber, similar to suspended animation. It is a dangerous potion, and its effects can last indefinitely. Only execute with maximum care and precaution.

• Crush the Sopophorous Bean with a silver knife.
• Pour water into beaker and add African sea salt. Set the beaker aside after all the water has been added. Be very careful not to shake or move the beaker now. Leave the water and salt mixture to rest for five minutes.
• Slowly pour mixture into the cauldron.
• With your left hand use a graduated cylinder to obtain 40 fl.oz. of essence of wormwood.
• With your right hand hold the cauldron at a slight angle and pour ten drops (20 fl.oz.) of essence of wormwood.
• Now, with your left hand, hold the cauldron at a slightly different angle and pour another ten drops of wormwood essence.
• Chop three Valerian roots into small, square pieces. After cutting, place in a beaker with water. Leave it to settle for five minutes. Your potion should now be resembling a smooth blackcurrant-coloured liquid.
• Carefully pour the Sopophorous bean's juice into the cauldron.
• Add seven drops of the reduced liquid from the beaker; making sure that there are no traces or fragments of Valerian root.
• Stir the potion ten times clockwise. Your potion should now turn to a light shade of lilac.
• With your right hand stir the potion counterclockwise until the potion turns as clear as water; each stir should take approximately two and a half seconds.
• Slowly put in seven square pieces of Valerian root.
• Stir the potion ten times counterclockwise.
• Add powdered root of asphodel.
• Hold the cauldron with your right hand; with your left hand gently stir the potion ten times counterclockwise and eight times clockwise.
• Leave the potion to settle for two and a half minutes.
• Add one small piece of Valerian root.
• Potion should turn to a pale pink colour. The preparation is now complete.
