Poisons

The symptoms of poisoning can range from headaches and vomiting, to a painful death. The statistics for the poisons mentioned below are in their pure form, which is very hard to obtain from legal or black market sources.

It is possible to distill or refine common household products (such as cleaners) plants or over-the-counter and prescription drugs to extract poisonous content that can be administered by various different methods. These extracts are significantly less potent than the pure poisons mentioned in the table above and it requires the craft (pharmaceutical) skill and appropriate equipment to obtain.

The toxicity of the distilled/refined extract and the necessary equipment costs and craft DC’s are outlined in the table below:

Fort Save DC Craft DC Time to extract Frequency Effect Cure
10 15 1 hr. 1 round (3) 1 con damage 1 save
15 20 3 hr. 1 round (3) 1 con damage 1 save
20 25 6 hr. 1 round (3) 1 con damage 1 save
