The metallic dyetub can be used on placed cannons to hue them. <h3>Resources:</h3> Most resources are crafted (see table below) however saltpeter is bought from the alchemists at Sea Market, the docks at Moonglow or Britain,  or mined from niter deposits in dungeons or from boats. Only miners with high luck can find these deposits which can occur in 5 different sizes, miners harvesting in Felucca will benefit from a 1000 point luck bonus. Once found the miner must mine the deposit until it is consumed. The niter will decay if not mined when found. <table border="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3559" src="" alt="saltpeter" width="23" height="23" /></a>Saltpeter</td> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3560" src="" alt="niter_small" width="29" height="21" /></a>Small Niter</td> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3561" src="" alt="niter_large" width="34" height="23" /></a>Larger Niter</td> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3562" src="" alt="niter_huge" width="40" height="37" /></a>Huge Niter</td> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3563" src="" alt="niter_massive" width="49" height="39" /></a>Massive Niter</td> <td><a href=""><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-3564" src="" alt="niter_gigantic" width="54" height="52" /></a>Gigantic Niter</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h3>Making Resources:</h3> <strong>Ingredients</strong> – <em>required to make the consumables</em> &nbsp; <table border="1" width="98%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <h4>Item</h4> </td> <td> <h4>Skill</h4> </td> <td> <h4>Sub-Menu</h4> </td> <td> <h4>Resources</h4> </td> <td> <h4>Skill level</h4> </td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>Charcoal </strong></td> <td>Cooking</td> <td>Preparations</td> <td>1 boards/logs(converts the entire stack, an oven is required.)</td> <td>0</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>Potash </strong></td> <td>Alchemy</td> <td>Ingredients</td> <td>1 boards/logs, (converts the entire stack, heat and water sources required)</td> <td>0</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>Black Powder </strong></td> <td>Alchemy</td> <td>Explosive</td> <td>6 saltpeter,1 charcoal, I sulfurous ash</td> <td>65</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <strong>Consumables</strong> - one fuse cord, one powder charge and one missile used on each firing.
