The poison is often used to coat blades and arrowheads since it is most dangerous when combined directly with the blood of the victim. It can be fatal if swallowed but the stench is difficult to mask making it hard to get the victim to swallow the poison willingly.

Special Rules: None. Weight: 4 lbs.

39. Vial of Poison

Appearance: A glass vial, stoppered on one end. Inside the vial is about 6 oz. of a clear, thick liquid.

Value: 3,401 gp (1 gp for the vial and 3,400 gp for one dose of Cleric’s Curse).

Special Rules: The poison is original to this book, rules below.

Cleric’s Curse: This thick liquid is usually clear in appearance, like water, though is can be easily dyed and, with work, made to taste like a cheap alcoholic beverage. Cleric’s Curse uses unholy water as its base ingredient to which is added an elf’s tear, a wyvern’s blood, and a witch’s eye. The entire mixture is stirred vigorously until all of the ingredients have blended together creating a black mixture. When left for 12 hours the mixture clears to the previously mentioned clear appearance and the poisoner has successfully created Cleric’s Curse.

The initial damage of the poison is a slight weakening of the victim. It is the secondary effect, that comes five rounds after administration of the poison, that is most dangerous. For a period of 1d6 days any divine healing magic cast on the target causes damage instead of healing. This poison must be ingested for it to affect the target. Evil-aligned characters are immune to the effects of Clerics Curse.
