BLACK LOTUS. Ebon-hued flower from Khitai, an eastern country of the Hyborian Age. Only the priests of the mysterious god Yun who dwelt in that land's jungles could harvest the Lotus. Its scent could induce slumber in even the most ferocious beast, and the priests of Stygia made use of its properties to control the minds of others. The only ones who dared to take the black lotus powder knowingly were the necromancers of the Black Ring, though its use became more prevalent in later times. After the end of the Hyborian Age the flower was taken to the Plateaus of Leng and Sung, where the priests of forgotten religious orders cultivated it. Legend has it that the Black Lotus was the basis of the poison used to kill the Buddha, inspiring his final, suppressed teachings. Its effects became so notorious that the khans of the East attempted to ban its use. It is still grown by the Tcho-tcho people, who consider it vital in the worship of Zhar and Lloigor. Modern cults occasionally use the lotus to create drugs such as Liao which open up the mind to dreams of other dimensions. Dosages, methods of application, and precise effects may vary. Taken improperly, however, it may incite the user to homicidal frenzies or provide them with terrifying and uncontrolled hallucinations. The black lotus itself is sometimes seen in these visions, and it could be that the flower itself exerts a malign influence through them.
