Gameplay Notes[edit]

This spell can be used to target opponents, or cast on a glove, weapon, or potion consumable. Poisons cast on gloves or weapons appear to last for 3 rounds (or per normal weapon application), while poison cast on potion consumables will apply non-ingested poison effects. Poisons cast on potion consumables will secretly *replace* any effect provided by the potion, unless [Neutralize Poison] is cast on the item (in which case the poison is removed and the potion works normally). Only the most recent poison applied (either by the Poison spell or by Ombra's poison system) will be taken into effect.


The poison provided will have a DC equal to [10 + CL/2 + casting modifier] (max 30), and provided from the following table:

[ DC: Poison name (Actual DC) (Primary effect / Secondary effect) ]

10: Nightshade (DC 10) (1 Dex / 1d2 Con)

11/12: Small Centipede Poison (DC 11) (1d2 Dex / 1d2 Dex)

13: Ettercap Venom (DC 13) (1d6 Dex / 2d4 Dex) [MINIMUM for Druid and Domain Clerics]

14: Medium Spider Venom (DC 14) (1d4 Str / 1d4 Int)
