In NetHack, dipping items in unholy water causes them to become cursed. Drinking unholy water heals you if you are chaotic, undead, or a demon (2-12 hp); it does a like amount of damage if you are not. To create unholy water, drop one or more potions of water (cursed/blessed status is irrelevant) on a non-co-aligned altar and pray.
