Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Sliver barb is an aboveground crop that can be brewed into gutter cruor, a low-value alcohol, or milled into black sliver dye, a high-value dye. It only grows in evil areas - since human and elven civilizations never live in these areas, your trading partners won't have seeds for it. To get this plant, your dwarves will need to brave the evil weather and pull it from the earth themselves.

Some dwarves like sliver barbs for their wicked thorns.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Dwarves tend to be surprised at the fact that they appear more gray than silver. This may be due to misreading the name while drunk. The plant is thorny and rhymes with "liver".

There have been reports of dungeon masters mandating an export ban on sliver barbs on multiple occasions due to them apparently being "far too strong for a 1st-level plant", whatever that means. However, these stories are obviously false because dungeon masters can't make mandates.
