These various unguents and ointments are collectively called salves. In Khara Thel the general use of the word salve is in a healing context.

Orc Salve (aka  Black Salve)

A bitter black salve that is grease-like in appearance and texture. It will heal wounds well but leaves dark scars (something orcs take pride in).
Cost: 15 gp for a tub of 10 doses
(Manufacture notes: an above average difficulty recipe, 2 oz. Gauthimilar & 4 oz. of Luminous Vrak & 5 oz. scrap melon juice, prepared through a bronze retort and then an iron alembic)
d20: as Cure Minor Wounds, and a Heal check can add excess to DC as extra hit-points healed. Eg. DM determines DC to be 18. Heal check total is 22, add 4 extra HP healed with the black salve.

White Salve

A smooth white salve that heals quite a bit better than black salve and leaves natural scarring or more often none at all. Looks and feels like refined tallow or lard but smells herbal and a little alkaline.
Cost: 45 gp for a tub of 10 doses
(Manufacture notes: a quite difficult recipe, 4 oz. Mordakress & 6 oz. of Apsusar brew & 1 oz. of Arlan, prepared though a bronze retort and then a steel alembic)
d20: as Cure Light Wounds, 1d8 + 2, and a Heal check can add excess to DC as extra hit-points healed. Eg. DM determines DC to be 18. Heal check total is 22, add 4 extra HP healed with the white salve.

Gold Salve, Great Salve  or Cyclops Salve

A potent healing preparation in great demand: unfortunately the ingredients are rare. It is a golden-amber colour and looks like thick honey but with the consistency of a fine grease. Smells of spice, moss and bitter-herbs.
Cost: 300 gp per tub of 10 doses
(Manufacture notes: very advanced recipe; 4 oz. of Mordakress & 2 oz. of Arlan & 2 oz. of Reglen brew & 1 oz. of Kelventari & 3 oz. of Gauthimilar, prepared through steel retort and then a steel alembic)

d20: as Cure Light Wounds, 1d8 + 6, and a Heal check can add double excess to DC as extra hit-points healed. Eg. DM determines DC to be 18. Heal check total is 22, add 8 extra HP healed with the white salve.
