It was invented from asuran piss by a nutty asuran. Perfect roleplay explanation.

Liquid Karma is created when vast amounts of admiration and respect are earned all at once and over wide areas, such as earning relatively significant Achievements. The massive concentrations of Karma congeal in a more physical form (relative to "common" Karma). Like its "lesser" version, Liquid Karma cannot be transferred. Unlike the lesser version, it cannot be exchanged directly for goods or services, but can be shared among groups of adventurers with a certain, special bond (usually referred to as an "Account"). Consuming the potion generates localized Karma, materializing the useful currency around that specific person. Karma, having no form per se and being unable to transfer physically, cannot be distilled back into Liquid Karma, though several labs are currently researching ways to do exactly that.
Granted, my data is woefully incomplete, but these seem the most plausible conclusions based on available information and my research. (Copyright: Firexis Labs, AE 251. As per Asuran law, stealing of unpublished theories will be met with extreme force.)

Consider an adventurer who kills a troll that's been raiding livestock, knocking over barns, scaring people, and generally making a nuisance of themselves. That person would probably find it difficult to pay for drinks for a few days, but if they try to live off the glory for a year, then the gratitude of the town is likely to wear thin - and the length of time that they continue to get free drinks would probably be lessened if the adventurer had already claimed the best sword in the town armoury as a reward. That's what karma essentially represents - sooner or later people feel that you've been rewarded 'enough' for what you've done.
How liquid karma interacts with that is a bit more of an interesting question, but my general feeling is that it basically magically makes people react better to you and be more inclined to give you freebies.
