Contained in a specially enchanted small leather or hide sack, deteriorating dust is a potent caustic agent.

Activation [two-actions] Interact

Effect You sprinkle the deteriorating dust over an unattended Medium or smaller object. The dust quickly fades to a transparent color and the object immediately begins to rust, melt, or otherwise fall apart.

For the listed time, the object takes constant damage; if the object has a Hardness, then the dust gradually reduces the object’s Hardness instead. If the deteriorating dust is still active after the object’s Hardness is reduced to 0, it deals damage to the object as previously described. If the object survives, reduced Hardness returns after the dust’s duration expires, but any damage remains.
