You reach out as the flower grows brighter. The dust and mists swirl around it, gathering together into an almost physical object as you pluck it.

You found: flower of the dragon

Gather some blood

You reach down to gather some of the blood, getting a fleck on your hand. It spreads in the course of moments, burning until there is nothing but blinding pain. You return to consciousness later, strangely uninjured but with the memories of pain still clinging to you.

The world seems clearer, bereft of the cloud of dust lingering at its edges.

Or, with some condition:

You gather a flask of the pooling blood, thankful that none of the droplets burn through your suit. The fluid sputters and hisses in the flask.

You found: dragon blood

Or, with a containment suit top / heavy containment top and a Myers sampling kit equipped:

You gather a flask of the pooling blood, thankful that none of the droplets burn through your top's weighty gloves. The fluid sputters and hisses in the flask.
