Profession Herbalist

From Traykon Campaign
Jump to: navigation, search

The herbalist profession allows the character to find and make poisons, salves and general mixtures that provide a varied number of negative effects. These mixtures are created naturally and require no special equipment to prepare. Characters with 5 or more ranks in Alchemy gain a +2 synergy bonus to create herbal mixtures. To create these poisons, a character must make a Herbalist check (DC = herbs fort. save), failure means the material is destroyed. See the Craft skill (page 65 of the Player's Handbook) for creation times and costs. Manufacturing these poisons assume that the Herbalist has the required herbs. Locating the herbs requires a Knowledge (Nature) check (DC = herbs fort save + 5). Please note that although a character may be able to find the herb in question, he needs an herbalist's knowledge to be able to properly refine the herb into its usable form.

NOTE: As long as a poison is active in a person's system, additional doses of the poison do no extra damage. Instead, the duration of the potion is extended by 1/2. Also, a character who is exposed to a poison for a month or longer may develop an immunity. Constitution check (DC of poison) after 1 full month's exposure, success means an immunity, failure means possible long term effects. Characters must then have 1 dose of the poison per month to maintain the immunity. The DM should enforce the damage that the poison does making attempts for immunity extremely dangerous.
