Once you have the Dragon’s Tally board you will have more options available for you. Visit any merchant (like any Memorial Mob merchant) and you will find they now stock infinite Black Gunpowder. A convenient merchant to visit is the Dungeon Memorial Mob since it is right beside the Abandoned Dungeon Entrance Sculptor’s Idol. One Black Gunpowder can be purchased for 150 sen which is a bit expensive, but late game you are able to farm sen more efficiently, so it evens out I guess.
