BRIGWELLT (also called Wither Weed)
Description: a dull gray weed that grows in clumps and thickets, choking out everything around it.

Normal: Typically used as a drying agent. It can absorb moisture for up to 3 days after being cut, drying out an3 ft square area completely per bundle. Can be used to jerk or dry out meat and other products.
Rare: Requires Emboldened Herb to use. If activated with 1 APT it will begin drying out an area for the next 40 CF Counts afterward, violently drawing in all moisture within a 15 ft radius.

If it draws out double the BODY or DUR of anything in the area, it will turn to dust. It can be made into an active dust but must be hermetically sealed until used.
