Poison

The poisoner's kit

  • Can safely hold up to six vials of poison.
  • With the exception of injury type poisons, the vials hold one dose.
  • Doses for injury poisons are determined during harvesting.

Any additional vials, the player has to make a DC18 Dex save everytime they are knocked prone, anytime someone scores a critical hit against them, or anytime they fail a dex save that results in damage other than psychic or poison damage. Every additional vial subtracts -2 from this check. On a failed throw a random number of vials break and the player has to deal with poisoning themselves.

Harvesting Poisons

  • Poisons can be harvested from any creature that deals poison damage or from a plant (see below)
  • The player must first make a DC 15 Nature/Survival Check to see if they can extract the poison
  • If successful and if the type of poison is injury, the number of doses is 1d4 + Nature/Survival Modifier + Proficiency.


Harvesting from Monsters

  • A monster that deals some type of poison damage can be harvested.
  • The type of poison is based on the monster's write-up.


Harvesting from Nature

  • In any environment that can potentially support vegetation, the player can check the surroundings for poisonous plants.
  • This check takes at least an hour.
  • The player must make a DC Nature/Survival Check to see if they discover any plants. The DC is based on the type of environment starting at 15 for jungle / forest and up to 25 for wasteland.
  • On a successful discovery, the player rolls a 1d100 and finds a plant from the following table. They can then attempt to harvest the poison.

Poison types

Contact. Contact poison can be smeared on an object and remains potent until it is touched or washed off. A creature that touches contact poison with exposed skin suffers its effects.

Ingested. A creature must swallow an entire dose of ingested poison to suffer its effects. The dose can be delivered in food or a liquid.

Inhaled. The poisons are powers or gases that take effect when inhaled. Blowing the powder or releasing the gas subjects creatures in a 5-foot cube to its effect. The resulting cloud dissipates immediately afterward. Holding one's breath is ineffective against inhaled poisons, as they affect nasal membranes, tear ducts, and other parts of the body.

Injury. Injury poison can be applied to weapons, ammunition, trap components, and other objects, that deal piercing or slashing damage and remains potent until delevered through a wound or washed off. A creature that takes piercing or slashing damage from an object coated with the poison is exposed to its effects.
