The Elixir of Everlasting is a scroll containing the formula to the fabled elixir created by Otrava, a high-ranking member of the Sisterhood and its divine healer. It can be obtained by using an old key on the chest on the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US] of church in Slepe.

While the Elixir of Everlasting is able to extend the drinker's life indefinitely, it had the side effect of causing the drinker to sleep for longer periods of time, until they eventually become trapped in an eternal slumber, never to wake up.

Phosani, along with other high-ranking members of The Sisterhood, drank this without knowing of its side effects, and fell into a deep sleep. Realising the consequences of messing with the natural order, the people of modern-day Slepe (its original name currently unknown), in accordance to the laws set by Phosani, moved the sleeping members of the Sisterhood deep into the Sanctuary with all their possessions and hid the formula itself away to prevent others from suffering its side effects.

Despite this, several notes about the elixir remain in the Sisterhood Sanctuary, albeit most of them have been scribbled over the top with hastily written warnings. Daer Krand, who is performing research on the elixir within the Sanctuary, is currently attempting to recreate it.

During Sins of the Father, it is discovered that Kroy, a vampyre herbalist, found the formula and recreated it. Alongside Damien Leucurte, a vampyre noble, the both of them used the elixir on Slepe's townsfolk by mixing it with their local beverage, Bloody Bracer, causing the town's second Sleeper Plague, in order to perform blood tithes on them as the sleeping victims only require a fraction of the blood compared to an awake human.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Elixir of everlasting.
~ Entry 1 ~

After weeks of searching through the scriptures I found during the final campaign, I've finally discovered something that may bear wondrous fruit! By fusing the teachings of haemalchemy with my knowledge as a divine healer, I've managed to create a tincture I call the 'Elixir of Everlasting'. I haven't observed any negative side effects other than a little short-term drowsiness so no major concerns so far.

Now, what is the purpose of such a potion? Simply put, it will negate the aging process if consumed on a regular basis. This is something Mother has wanted addressing for some time now, ever since she realised she couldn't become one of them. She desires eternal life more than anything... and fortunately for her, I now have that power.

~ Entry 2 ~

I have been ingesting the fluid for a full month now and I feel incredible! My old joints are loosening, and my eyesight has improved tenfold. I'm as young and beautiful as I was all those years ago. The scars of war have been removed far beyond the abilities of my divine healing. It's almost as if my body has moved backwards through time. Mother will be most pleased with these results.

There is something to take note of though. Consuming the elixir on the night of a full moon seems to give the potion increased potency. It's likely one of the ingredients is causing this. Perhaps if we increase the wolfsbane extract ever so slightly... Yes, more experimentation will be required.

~ Entry 3 ~

The formulae is complete! The elders of the Sisterhood have been imbibing the elixir for a full year now and the results have been marvellous. With our new lease of life, we've been made great movements in extending the caverns beneath the old church. It's been noticed that a few of the sisters have taken to sleeping a lot more than they usually would. This is to be expected though as they've been working very hard this past year. Long hours, tough work - not for the faint of heart.

With all the notes I've been adding to them, the Senntisten Scriptures are becoming more and more unreadable. As such, I've re-written the recipe for instructions for the elixir below. However, I've purposefully mis-recorded a few of the directions in case this information falls into the wrong hands. This shouldn't cause any internal issues as no one should be trying to create the elixir without my supervision.

First you must prepare by obtaining several buckets of blood. Avoid taking blood from the dead as this will...

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Elixir of Everlasting was released alongside Slepe on 24 May 2018, but because Mod West ran out of time to write the text for the item, it was not made obtainable. However, he decided to keep it in the game's code, and teases its role in potential future content alongside the old key.[1] It was later released with the Darkmeyer update on 4 June 2020.

I kept it in as I knew it'd be found by certain players and enjoyed the idea of them searching for it fruitlessly :P Much like the key, it'll play a part in potential future content."
