Pick Your Poison—Or Potion

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

In a couple of weeks, Pathfinder Player Companion: Potions & Poisons will be available in stores worldwide and as a PDF here on paizo.com. If you've got a character that uses poisons, brews potions, or has poisonous racial tendencies, this is the book for you!

Potions & Poisons starts off with a section providing feats and archetypes for gripplis, nagaji, and vishkanyas like the swamp poisoner, venomblade, and disciple of the forked tongue. There's also a scorpion bloodline for those sorcerers who trace their power back to these venomous arachnids.

The book goes on to provide player options for character classes that frequently make use of poisons, such as the alchemist, rogue, witch, and investigator. Some of these new options include the fermenter alchemist, venom siphoner witch, and the rotdrinker rogue, as well as new alchemist discoveries, witch hexes, rogue talents, and investigator tricks.

Deeper into this Player Companion, readers can put poisons away for a bit and read about potions. There are new feats for characters who brew potions, spells that aid in potion brewing, and a table of spells that are viable for potions and oils.

Pathfinder Player Companion: Potions & Poisons continues with a section on interesting elixirs and nonmagical alchemical concoctions usable by everyone. The last part of the book provides 10 new poisons, 12 new drugs, a dozen items frequently used by character who incorporate poison use into combat, and a dozen items used by those who either treat poisons or fight against toxic creatures and characters.

There's plenty in there for everyone! So, take your antitoxin before diving in and watch out for any needles, weird fluids, or strange-smelling gasses.
