I haven’t forgotten that I owe a table of NPC motivations. I’m still working on it, which is probably overthinking, but I have to go through that stage with everything first.
Alchemical item mishaps! As many as you can think of.
OK, first of all: nice Animaniacs reference. Now:
I’ve interpreted this to mean this is what happens when you drink a potion is made by a new or feckless alchemist, mage or witch. I can only type in twenty, as the potion I just drank is rather strong.
|Alchemical Item Mishaps|
|1||potion is undrinkably bitter. no effect.|
|2||potion is sweet, attracts 10d100 angry killer bees.|
|3||tastes great, less filling. Has no effect.|
|4||piss fire for 1d6 weeks. (okay, I know what you’re thinking. 1d3 damage short range missile attack thrice per day for male characters. cone attack for females)|
|5||potion works, but rots all your teeth out instantly, no save. (had dreams of this one? me too.)|
|6||potion works, but you are drunk (-8 dex, -3 saves) for 1d6 hours.|
|7||fails. aphrodisiac combined with not-choosey-at-all effect.|
|8||works. crossed eyes for 1d6 days.|
|9||doesn’t work, but 1d6 pixies fall in love with you and will follow you around for a week.|
|10||potion is perfect acid. eats though container, floor, goes to center of the planet when brewed.|
|11||works. flowers grow from every orifice for 1-3 weeks.|
|12||no noticable effect. become addicted to next potion you drink.|
|13||break out with acne everywhere until cure disease. -2 penalty to charisma.|
|14||potion works, but you now think you are some historical or legendary figure (a silly one)|
|15||the potion was harboring an earworm! minus two to anything involving intelligence for the next 1d8 hours.|
|16||a small head grows on the back of our neck and speaks very personal prophecy to anyone who talks to it.|
|17||everything between 15 and 100 feet from you is hit by a level 8 fireball spell|
|18||no one will believe you swallowed a liquid demon, but you are indeed possessed.|
|19||grow four extra arms below your regular ones.|
|20||you have reverse esp for 4 hours. anyone who looks at you knows your every thought. save or reveal any secrets or hidden notivations to any pc or npc that looks at you.|
