Check out the alchemical flying steed constructed by this advanced kithkin mage. It's part bird, part pottery! The mage's wind-defying power comes from the powders he has stoppered up in all those jars and urns.
The versatile removal power of Oblivion Ring all comes down to a circle of fine particles, shown here trapping a frustrated flamekin in its center.
A circle of powder can have healing properties, too. Below, a Kithkin Healer nurses a young kithkin back to health with an inscribed pattern made from specially-prepared dust.
