Everburning oil, also called Greek fire by knowledgable wizards,[2] was a mixture of oil and other substances designed for use in combat. It was easy to ignite but difficult to extinguish, and had a tendency to stick to anything it hit.[1]


Everburning oil was sometimes employed in the defense of cities[3][4] or as armament of ships in so-called Greek fire projectors or flame cannons.[4][5][6]


In Zakhara it went by the name oil of stars[3] or oil of liquid stars.[7] The city of Qudra produced this dangerous substance,[3] while the city of Ravens Bluff banned it in 1370 DR due to the risk it posed.[2]
