[Drug/Medicine/Poison] Poison Well

Image
Name of Material: Poison Well
Type of Material: Poison (This material is NOT a well, ala Ensorcelling, but more a method of poison delivery)
Gathered or Crafted? Crafted
How to Gather or Craft: Medicine for the knowhow, proper handling, and application. Science/pottery/glassblowing/smithing/textile production or any skill granting knowledge and manipulation of physical properties of base materials. Magic practices and magic domains alone aren't sufficient to craft a poison well.
Skill Requirements: Master Medicine, Expert secondary skill (see crafting information).
Rarity: Rare
Uses: A single poison well can be used to spoil/poison/drug a large well's water supply. Otherwise, a single Poison Well can supply ten doses of highly toxic ingested poison in the short term. It can be converted to different delivery methods with mastery of medicine.
Estimated Price: Wealth tiers 7-9 depending on potency and effect.
Native to: Artificial.
Information: A Poison Well is a catch-all term for a grab bag of various toxins that have been chemically bonded to each other through a process of artificial petrifaction, using a variety of methods not limited to heating in a stove, and crafting a ceramic or another material matrix of the toxic materials with various material bases.
Side effects/complications/weaknesses : Those drinking from a well tainted by a Poison Well will experience stomach upset first. Then their insides will begin to agitate if they fail to procure the services of an expert healer to provide an antidote. The tertiary effects depend upon the exact materials and chemicals used to craft the Poison Well. It could range to anything from hallucinogenic, to fatality inducing. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Poison Wells, more than one toxin is often used to craft them, and as such it's very difficult to know the exact formula. However, activated charcoal has been known to slow the effects long enough so that treatment can be found before its tertiary effects take hold.

A Storm is Coming...


Hello Woe!
Thank you so much for the submission, the poison wells look amazing! I do have a few questions before I can mark this good to go.

1. Does the effects of the poison differ with age? Such as kids or older people feel the effects faster versus someone in the prime of their life?

2. Does weight/lifestyle change the potency of the wells? Would someone fit be affected as quickly as say someone who is more overweight?

3. Is poison well able to be purchased?

4. Is the process to make the poison well an accident? Or would a master poison crafter have to teach someone new how to do so safely?

5. Is it easy to find someone who can make poison wells, or would the goods have to be imported?

Re: [Drug/Medicine/Poison] Poison Well

1. Does the effects of the poison differ with age? Such as kids or older people feel the effects faster versus someone in the prime of their life? It would depend I think on the drug/poison used to formulate the well. This is more a delivery system for toxins or drugs than a specific substance.

2. Does weight/lifestyle change the potency of the wells? Would someone fit be affected as quickly as say someone who is more overweight? I'd guess it'd be down to resistance skill of those involved and see above.

3. Is poison well able to be purchased? They are probably very illegal, so maybe for a high price on the black market. Tier 7-9 depending on the base toxins/drugs/medicines incorporated into the well.

4. Is the process to make the poison well an accident? Or would a master poison crafter have to teach someone new how to do so safely? A master could make one, and teach others to make it the same.

5. Is it easy to find someone who can make poison wells, or would the goods have to be imported? Very difficult to find a master at medicine who's good enough and unethical enough to make them, and also has the knowledge perhaps.

I edited the skill references that were a holdover from before the Skill Scale down.
