Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Mucos (as it is spelled in-game) is a misspelling of mucus.
  • Though already a liquid, it cannot be used as a dye until you craft Purple Dye with it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The ancient Phoenicians used murex (a species of snail) to make purple dye, which was often worth its weight in silver.

History[edit | edit source]
