The Poisoner's Handbook

Suggested Price $0.99

 I think we can all agree that the processes of tinkering, crafting, and brewing in Dungeons and Dragons can be convoluted and intricate, dissuading many adventuring parties from engaging in such endeavours. Unless you are participating in an exceptionally lengthy campaign with ample periods of downtime, the likelihood of exploring these aspects is rather slim. Even when you do, the difficulty class' (DCs) associated with these activities vary significantly, and the cost and time required to create even the most basic poison can entail dedicating days of valuable adventuring time to meticulously tending a Bunsen Burner.

But what if the process was simplified, a single difficulty class (DC) remaining consistent across all checks, the survival check to find your raw materials, crafting check to brew your poisons and even saving against the effects. Imagine the possibility of crafting a poison in only an hour instead of enduring an arduous task spanning 25 days. After all, if you possess a poisonous plant as a starting material, why should it demand nearly a month's time and more than 1000 gold pieces to procure a single bottled dosage?

This Supplement adds:

  • A simplified posion crafting system.
  • 11 Foragable flora to add to your game.
  • Advice for posion crafting and foraging in Urban Campaigns.
  • 11 Craftable Poisons with variable effects and delivery methods.
  • A cheeky lil' stat block for an undead wasp, don't say we never gave you anything!
We use AI generation for art purposes only, all other work is performed by our own hands and/or brains.

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.
