Powder is any fine-grained loose material, including flour, dye, sugar, sand, and plaster. To be useful, powder must be stored in a bag; powder that has been dumped from a bag is not recoverable. Caravans will often have various powders available for trade, and further quantities can be requested from the outpost liaison.
