An adept alchemist rushes into the scene of a battle, the palace walls dark and stained with blood. Speeding through the halls and listening to the sound of fighting ahead, they steel their nerves and rush forth with determination creating a pulsing thrum in their chest. Left turn here, up the stairs - They run, and hurry, following the clash, before hearing a pained cough to their left; Hooking the bottle of alchemist's fire to their belt and turning with a swiftness, they pull a potion from their belt with a golden ribbon tied around it's neck. The dark elfess who coughed out was missing their hand and leg .. The alchemist resists the bile crawling up their throat, and rapidly feeds the bubbling green potion to the elf. Right before their eyes, the muscle whirls, curls, and threads over itself in a complex lattice. The alchemist speaks lowly - "It's alright, you're going to be okay."

First, some basic terms to shorten explanations:
Minor Wounds - Small cuts and piercings (dagger, knife, spear), minor scrapes (falling, sliding on rough terrain), small bruises (black eye, punches, kicks), fractured bones (small cracks), first degree and superficial (skin layer only) second-degree burns, and dull pain.

Major Wounds - Large cuts and piercings (sword, axe, glaive), major scrapes (ex. those caused by road rash or similar), large bruises (warhammer wounds), broken bones (breakage), second and superficial (skin layer only) third-degree burns, head injuries, and sharp pain.
Mortal Wounds - Impalement, bisection, dismemberment, shattered bones, destroyed extremities (eyes, tongue, hands), severe impacts (falling from immense heights), critical cuts or blows (cut in the throat, stabbed in the heart), third-degree burns, beheading, (or other things that involve the killing of a brain) instant destruction (obliteration, disintegration, incineration, and smashing as examples)

Action - One roleplay emote done by the player who has drank the potion.
Resistance - Taking "significantly less damage than normal" from an attack would be an example of resistance. This can apply to effects as well, such as fear or sleep.
Immunity - Taking "no damage" from an attack would be an example of immunity. This can apply to effects, just as Resistance does.

Disclaimer: A potion takes one action to draw and a second action to drink.

Potion Effects


Anodyne Essence
"A concoction of milk-white liquid that smells of death. Imbibing this mixture causes instant pain relief and stimulates the closure of wounds. Side effects include drowsiness, hallucinations, and profuse sweating. Tastes terrible and burns the throat on the way down."

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Anodyne Essence - The elixir takes action within the action that it is taken; The pain that was felt before is relieved temporarily, acting as a painkiller. The drinker sweats heavily, their vision blurring, and they have a difficulty reacting to attacks for the following 3 Actions, the duration of their painlessness.

The imbibement seals shallow cuts and cures minor abrasions and bruises over the course of 10 Actions, curing nonmagical poisons over the course of the 2 Actions the potion's detoxification requires to take effect. It tastes hot, and burns the tongue and throat.

Greater Anodyne Essence - The elixir takes effect within the action that it is taken, and all pain is relieved, alongside wounds being slowly healed. The drinker heavily sweats and has dizzied, stunned vision; Having difficulty reacting to attacks for the following 3 Actions. The potion instantly seals and scabs over open wounds over the course of 5 Actions but does not cure them any further.

Additionally, it instantly cures nonmagical poisons, and numbs the body against pain for the duration of the potion. It tastes like liquid cinnamon - Horrible and burning.


Vivifying Elixir
"A concoction of aromatic smelling but bitter liquid. Imbibing this mixture cleanses the body of poison, fortifies the body against ailments, and encourages the healing of wounds. "

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Vivifying Elixir -
The elixir's abilities take effect over the course of 1 Year. Although they slow bleeding immediately upon imbibement, the healing of shallow injuries such as cuts, abrasions, minor burns and bruises occur over the course of 24 Hours (1 Day Out of Character).

Then, over the course of the rest of the year, the greater wounds such as larger cuts or injuries (like fractured bones) are aided in healing by the elixir, attempting to cure them over the course of the year. This does not, however, repair shattered bones or misaligned bones, and can heal them incorrectly if not properly set back into place. All wounds cured are denoted by the smooth, flexible scars left behind, unlike normally healed wounds.

Greater Vivifying Elixir - The elixir's abilities take effect over the course of 1 Year. Although they slow bleeding immediately upon imbibement, the healing of Minor Wounds occurs over the course of 1 hour; Scabs rapidly form, sealing shallow injuries like cuts, abrasions, minor burns and small bruises over the course of the time with great agility.

Then, over the course of the rest of the month, the greater wounds such as larger cuts or injuries (like broken bones) are aided in healing by the elixir, attempting to cure them over the course of the year. This does not, however, repair shattered bones or misaligned bones, and can heal them incorrectly if not properly set back into place.

Additionally, unlike its lesser cousin, this potion can be imbibed to regrow lost limbs. This does not, however, regrow lost limbs with completely healed portions of connection, and must be imbibed within 1 Month (1 OOC Day) of losing the limb, otherwise it will not function. It takes one entire year (1 OOC Week) to regrow a limb, the flesh and bone slowly regrowing from the location in which it was lost, a distinctly flexible scar-tissue tinted hue to the flesh regrown.


Potion of Celerity
"A concoction of sweet-smelling milky liquid. Imbibing this mixture will quicken the body, stimulate the muscles, and increase agility. Side effects include jitteriness, high energy, and extreme alertness."

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Potion of Celerity -

Greater Potion of Celerity - Immediately, movement speed (normally 10 blocks per action) is increased by 5 blocks, bringing it to 15 Blocks of movement per combat action for the next 5 Actions. Immediately after those 5 Actions, the drinker has no negative side effects.

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Draught of Vigor -
The elixir takes action within the action that it is taken. For 3 Actions, the person under the effects of the Draught is Resistant to fear inducing effects (a wraith's fear aura, for example). Their strength allows them to inflict wounds one level above their current wounding capabilities. Additionally, the drinker is capable of lifting or pushing an additional 300 pounds (or about 180 kilos) for the duration of the effect. After the effects fade, the person is as weak as a child, and overcome with anger and exhaustion for 2 Actions.

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Philter of Volitancy - The elixir's ability takes effect immediately. Their leaping capability is reflected through mechanical potion effect, but otherwise functions for 2 Actions.

Radiant Brew
"A concoction of black liquid that reeks of rot. Consuming this mixture will make your skin numb to the touch and effect of heat to a degree, and it will provide ample resistance to it. However, good luck stomaching this brew - For it has a hideous taste to accompany it."

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Radiant Brew
- The potion’s ability takes effect 1 Action after consumption, the numbness gradually overtaking the body of the drinker. For 3 Actions, the afflicted person’s body is resistant to mundane flames, but not flowing lava or similarly extremely hot temperatures - like Wildfire. This potion does not provide immunity to magical fires, and only reduces burns by a medium degree - Second degree burns becoming as if first degree.


Wildfire
"A concoction of highly volatile sticky black powder in a clay vessel. Exposure to air causes the mixture to erupt into flames. Inert when wet, but touching the powder still blisters the skin."

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Wildfire
- The clay vessel’s contents - upon shattering - are immediately lit aflame when exposed to air. If or when it strikes a surface or creature, it engulfs the entities within a 1 block radius of the impact point with scalding flames for 3 Actions, inflicting second degree burns if the flames are not extinguished within 3 Actions.


Smoke Bomb
"A concoction of volatile, sticky powder in a clay vessel. Shattering the vessel ignites the powder, which gives off a plethora of smoke that stings the eyes. Inert when wet."

ROLEPLAY EFFECTS

Normal Smoke Bomb
- Upon impact, a 3 by 3 block area centred on the point of impact of the bomb is engulfed in thick and stinging smoke for 2 Actions. Those within the smoke have their eyes greatly irritated by the caustic smoke, and their skin is inflicted with minor, stinging burns. Animals such as horses will refuse to enter the smoke’s area, and will either stall or panic in response to the smoke entering their eyes. Those who exit the smoke are still disoriented for 1 Action, and then the effect fades from their now watery eyes.
