DescriptionOriginally discovered by dwarven alchemists working with adamantine dust, efreeti cord is a viscid length of string approximately 18 inches long and blue-gray in color. It can be purchased in greater lengths by multiplying the price for every 18 inches or fraction thereof. Flexible and sticky, a length of efreeti cord can be carefully shaped into almost any pattern, draped upon an object, or wrapped around a fixture, and will stay in place until activated. Once activated (using an efreeti switch; see below), efreeti cord rapidly heats up, and after 1 round becomes a white-hot cord of fire. In the first round, the cord deals 3d6 points of fire damage to an object. This damage ignores any hardness less than 10, and is not halved for an object. The cord continues to burn for 2 additional rounds, dealing 2d6 points of fire damage the first additional round and 1d6 points the second.
