Hazardous Substance Warning: A Study of Failium Amarite

Postby Trivval » Mon Mar 18, 2013 5:39 am


Failium Amarite is a heavy, fail-bearing ceramic which is evidently rarer that we thought it would be. Failium Amarite is the natural combination of Failium (Fa), (Latin: Fail-bearing element), and Amarium (Ai) (Gibberish: Element producing suspension of disbelief). When the compound is present a great amount of mistakes and general ‘failing’ occurs, sometimes with lethal results.

Structure & Properties

Failium Amarite has been found to have the formula of Fa4Ai9 and forms a continuous crystalline structure similar to that of diamond. The bonds formed are unusually strong and electron rich, ensuring that it is extremely stable once formed. As such, the tight tetrahedral structure means that the substance is both harder than diamond, yet somehow amazingly convenient to form into alloy plates.

Structure of Failium Amarite

This structure is unusually found in some human beings, usually corpses, and has helped the Holy Galilean Society discover the cause of death for several so-called ‘cold cases’. Heavy exposure to Failium Amarite can lead the blood to be poisoned with a few particles of Failium. Just as little as two nanograms can be fatal in the standard human male.

In some places Failium is attracted and groups together in unstable quantities, drawing more and more Failium towards it, and it is only through human interaction can amounts of Amarite be introduced, however this is found to be a natural process between humans and Failium.

The main danger Failium Amarite produces is its incorporation at a nanoscale within materials. Due to it's incredibly unusual electron-rich bonds, Failium is able to produce distortion in the GEIJD-Hataria Field of Plausibility, resulting in local distortions to the laws of physics. As a result, relatively low concentrations (~0.01% present) can produce macroscale effects as diverse as surprising cost-effectiveness (the Ansari Pecuniary Devaluation Effect) and exotic properties such as unusual lightness normally only viewed in Wanktonium alloys.

Whilst some suggest that Wanktonium and Failium Amarite are related, as yet this cannot be proven. To suggest such is to merely feed into the delusional rants of the pseudo-scientist of the General School.


One of the few recorded fatalities

Due to its danger of contaminating scientific instruments, Failium Amarite is most often detected at range via observation of its effects. As such, the recommended instrument is the AMCI Sanity Integrity Compass, which measures the relative speed of light across the material as compared to normal values to determine the degree of Failum Amarite levels. The higher the discrepancy, the greater the presence. Above levels of 0.08%, a built in alarm sounds to leave the area, before contamination becomes dangerous.


Normally, articles contaminated with Fa4Ai9 are condemned as unusable, and aim is to seperate them via locking them out of other areas. However, some studies suggest that introduction of Failium's group neighbour (Komunsensine, sometimes incorrectly labelled as Reelyfite after it’s discoverer, Dr. Reelyf McKindle) can destabilise the Failium Amarite lattice, producing some alleviation of the distortion to local physics. Kohmensens only deadens the radioactive decay of Failium Amarite when forming a black body around a critical Failium Amarite quantity. However, it is not determined how long this lasts.

Monitoring the expansion of Failium Amarite in an area has been made easy by the development of Kyru’s Law of Expansion in 1973 by the Ashazethi Comrade Commissar of Scientific Development.


Simply, the Failium amarite quanity equals the degree of pressure applied multiplied by the limity of infinity in multiplication of the Rob Constant divided by the degree of presence times the quantity of bastardization in an inverse field.

Closing Notes

Failium Amarite is a seriously unstable and hazardous substance. All instances of the substance should be reported to the Holy Galilean Society and local CBRN Response Teams. As a warning to all governments, some groups have attempted, but so far been unsuccessful, in weaponising Failium Amarite. All parties should contact the Holy Galilean Society for assistance in developing protection against Failium Amarite outbreaks.

Holy Republic Hazardous and Toxic Materials Authority

The Holy Republic Hazardous and Toxic Materials Authority will now include failium amarite in its database of Banned Toxic, Hazardous and Chemical Materials
and ban the said chemical entirely.

The HRHTMA will also begin efforts and disseminate news to mass media and to the general public about the dangers of failium amarite.

The HRHMTA will inform the Bureau of Customs to ban all import of failium amarite to the Terra Nova of Scrin.

The studies and warning done by the State of Trivval are praiseworthy and deserved to be thanked.
