Curse of the Crimson Throne
The word pesh refers both to the bulbous, vibrant green cacti that flourish in the Katapeshi deserts and to the narcotic distilled from their milk. Nearly every settlement in Katapesh has a pesh field while the poorest farmers may own only two or three cacti in their yard. Pesh is Katapesh’s main export and it can be found for sale in places as far away as Absalom, Cheliax, or Varisia. The drug exists in many forms.
Pesh is hallucinogenic, often these hallucinations cause euphoria, paranoia, and enhanced aggressiveness. These effects last for an hour, followed by a time where the user is in a fatigued state. The flower is used as a food spice.
