Blue Deception ... Quod ...
Wisp of Pallstone. These are but three of the lethal poisons that grace
the pages of this book. Never again will your characters yawn at the
mention of a poisoned arrow or the sight of a venomous serpent. For instead
of merely being weakened by the kiss of poison, they may find themselves
deafened, unable to cast spells, or thrown into the very depths of fear!
The first in our Complete line of d20 sourcebooks, this tome
contains so much more than a simple recitation of poisons. A free-form
poison creation system means the product of your skill will be limited
only by the breadth of your imagination. The Complete treatment
- Detailed rules for magical poisons, harvesting
raw materials from vanquished foes, and creating antidotes.
More than 40 new feats, including metapoison feats, epic feats, and the
dreaded Toxic Substitution.
- Over 30 poison-related spells,
including the ultimate in retributive magic: Vengeance on Tainted Hands.
An armory-full of new equipment and magic items, like the sinister
Hollow-Blade and the legendary Staff of Serpents.
- Six new
prestige classes, including the Ki Corrupted and Toxomancer.
A menagerie's worth of baneful creatures, featuring the venomous gaze of
the Syrallax and the grim essence of the Toxic Deathlord.
Adventure seeds incorporating all of the new rules for levels 1-20,
including fully statted NPCs.
You might find all of that in a
regular sourcebook. In a Complete sourcebook, that's just the
beginning! Blue Devil Games also gives you: rules on poison decay, the
perils of handling poison, two versions of the poison cleric domain,
three creature templates, a random poison naming table, a detailed
description of all nineteen poison families, a character sheet addendum,
and a Poisoncraft worksheet for creating new poisons. Oh, and did we
mention the Codex Venenorum, with more than 50 poisons!
- Detailed notes for using the
Poisoncraft rules in any Monte Cook's
Arcana Unearthed campaign.
