This collection of potions and poisons has been compiled at great risk over several years by Captain Gothnog, his faithful servant Naboo and the noble Master Jolin. Although it includes information regarding many illegal substances, no important laws were broken in obtaining the information, and they are intended for academic research only. Neither the author nor publisher accept any responsibility for any nefarious activities committed using the knowledge obtained herein.

This book contains 60 magical and non-magical potions and over 120 poisons to enhance your fantasy role playing game. Rather than simply providing mechanical stats, the book provides detailed and evocative descriptions of symptoms, alchemical processes, and component collection.

On top of there, there are related backgrounds, feats, a new wizard school, and even recipes in the appendix to brew your own potions at home... and please remember to drink responsibly.

This material is compatible with the most recent edition of the most popular fantasy role playing game in history.

Check back for more curious additions to the library of Gothnog.

Hi. I was thinking of picking up a physical copy, but noticed in the review section that you're planning on updating this book in 2019. Has this been done yet? If not, I'll hold off on purchasing a physical copy until this has been done.

The entry for Anise Tea seems to be partially duplicated in the entry for Basil Tea, at least in my digital copy.

Awesome compendium of poisons and potions. Great for role-playing, especially with rangers, druids, and other characters that would know a thing or two about plants, herbs, and other ingredients. Great mixture of magical and non-magical items.

Fantastic resource! Over 50 potions and 100 poisons. But unlike other simple lists, this one details every single one; how it's made, the ingredients. A great supplement for adding details to your alchemical needs.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
