Darjiini Baths

A Dorkathi nobleman discusses bathing:

How unsurprising that such a barbarous spot would be unable to provide a full spectrum of civilized bathing, as is available only in the most civilized city in the world - Dorkath! While rightly famous for its public system of wine plumbing and attractive spring festivals, true sybarites know of the Six Blessed Baths and the Four Proper Temperatures which may be combined into the Twenty-three Healthful Baths (and the Twenty-Fourth Final Bath, which is not healthful.)

The Six Blessed Baths:

  • Water
  • Mud
  • Milk
  • Honey
  • Oil
  • Air

That poor exile did manage to get the Four Temperatures correct.

The Twenty-Fourth Final Bath is, of course, the Hot Oil Treatment. After it, you never have to worry about problems with your hair again.
