This is actually a very well thought out system, which I will hold onto in case a player decides they want to work on custom poisons.
I do have one suggestion though. I notice that there doesn't seem to be anything related to the save DC to resist the poison, which I think is key to how strong a poison actually is. I think I would add that the cost changes by 1/10 the save DC. For example, save DC of 10 multiply the price by x1, a save DC of 15 alters the price by x1.5, etc. I'm not sure if the base prices would need to be adjusted if this were added, but that might be something to at least consider.
Take this as merely a suggestion, not as diminishing the usefulness of your work. Keep up the good work.

Actually, the save DC is multiplied with the base price and the other multipliers to make the final price :)
The result is that every +1 DC alters the price by +5% (which is the same to what you suggest, as a DC 15 poison costs 1.5 times as much as a DC 10 one).

Thanks for the feedback!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
