Communion is a bitter-tasting powder that causes the user to experience ecstatic union with their god or gods. Usually taken by mixing into tea (generally with a lot of sugar), Communion is particularly popular with the devotees of Karla Sommers living on Al Amarja.
The drug is all-encompassing, affected all five senses. Users often come back from their trips with missions – often vaguely-defined – from their deities. The objective reality of the experience of Communion is a hotly-debated topic in theological and pharmacological circles.
The drug itself is made from the glands of dead glugs, the secretive original species of humans who hide in our midst – although most glugs would be horrified if they knew the drug’s origins, and would almost certainly kill those of their number who are responsible for its creation.
