Cost and availability of poison antidotes


Recommended Posts

O.k. a giant spider just jumped a player character in my campaign.  It was very satisfying; she's played by a 10 year old with a spider phobia, and her character just ran away screaming.

However the poisoned bite was nasty, and the character is barely alive.  And the rest of the party have just twigged that if it had bitten anyone else, they would be very dead.

So I'm anticipating that suddenly they're going to want to get hold of antidotes.

I'm wondering how difficult to make antidotes to get hold of.  Also price. 

I'm thinking of 10L per point, but you pay for all the points up to the POT bought (like the cost of spirit magic spells).  So 3 POT = 30+20+10 = 60L

Also, up to 5 POT, I'd make fairly easy to get, a trip to the local Ernalda temple.  Up to 10, it would be from Chalana Arroy temples in local Cities, and above 10, a special import from the Chalana Arroy temples in Esrolia (requiring Sora, and she'd probably want paying by a favour).

Also I wonder about having antidotes go off.  Perhaps each season roll a POTx5 or lose a point of POT?

Any ideas?

Any Healing Temple will sell antidotes. The more common ones will be everywhere, less common ones will be available at specialist or larger temples.

So, I would say that Ernalda, Chalana Arroy, Lhankor Mhy and Seven Mothers Temples would sell Antidotes, as would many shamans and wise folk.

The forthcoming Book of Doom has prices for various concoctions:

And yes, these prices are relatively high. They are effectively magical items for sale and the price reflects that.

I've asked a similar question already in a different thread, and the answer was

New Jonstown Compendium supplement, containing spot rules for ships, buildings, alchemy, trading and c500 new skills and spells.

So, if the Red Book of Magic doesn't have enough spells for you, the Book of Doom should scratch your itch.

So it's not an offical book ...

It will be an official Jonstown Compendium supplement.

No, but a badly needed one!

Thanks!
