Vinegar, refined and purified over the weeks, had made a near perfect acetic
acid. What Psycho had called for was a solution that would not only heal the
most complex and deadly of poisons but also heal the user. Friar Tuck,
Brewmaster of the Radiant Heart had been consulted, as well as the
various alchemical masters of the Keep.
