Hsskala ("nearkill" in the Common tongue) was a positoxin that would render an undead creature unconscious.

It was created by the half-fiend yuan-ti Kharantes, who used to in 1375 DR to render the sarrukh lord, King Oreme, incapacitated. Kharantes plan was foiled shortly thereafter by a group of adventurers seeking King Oreme for his council.[1]
