Dwarven (Standard) Magic Spells and enchantments are enabled by enslaved extra-dimensional beings called DVLs (devils) who manipulate the trans-spatial energy needed to create magical effects. The Artificial Intelligence that ran the orbital space station XenoTel controlled these enslaved beings, translating the vocalizations and gestures of those on the planet below into commands. Enchanted items gained their power by having DVLs chained to them. Sometimes this system caused DVLs to go insane, with those succumbing to madness being called Daemons (Demons).
Dog Froth Drug sold by the underworld. First encountered in the prior campaign. It is a greenish powder. It was found among the stores of Bogfunk's Mycelian gang in Session 67. The party destroyed it.
