These are from an upcoming adventure I’ve been working on (see post on GIMP directly below). It’s actually nearly 100% done, I just have to do a bit more mapping, etc. Anyway, here are two poisons I’ve developed for the adventure. Your PCs might have the opportunity to be on both sides of these bad boys, if they play their cards right.
Save or collapse on the ground from loss of breath. Target will lose 1 HP each round until dead. A Save is permitted at the beginning of each round to end this effect.
Choking Poison may be applied to a bladed or piercing weapon or consumed.
Save +2 or be -1 to-hit and AC until one hour after the last dose of Crippling Poison was received. This effect stacks if hit by more doses.
Crippling Poison must be applied to a bladed or piercing weapon.
I’ve been coming up with new spells for both clerics and magic-users for use in the City of Nightmares. The dungeon is based on a jailed god, the Waking Dreamer, and a cult of necromancers trying to gain control of the subterranean complex. Clerics gain spells dealing with the realm of sleep, while magic-users can begin the study of necromancy. Two samples:
Cleric, Level 1, Touch
The target of the Dream-Lock must Save -2 or be knocked unconscious. The target will be trapped in a labyrinthine dream for as long as the cleric maintains contact.
Magic-User, Level 2
A magic-user who desires to study necromancy should begin with the ability to Summon Imp. For one hour, the Imp will serve the at the MU’s beck and call, but if the MU does not take three minutes to undo the summoning before the end of the hour, the imp will turn on his master.
I finished the initial “final draft” of floor one of The City of Nightmares. I’m calling it the final, but lord knows I’ll probably go over it a half-dozen more times before it’s finished.
And now, for your viewing pleasure:
Here is the current draft of the first floor of my dungeon, The City of Nightmares
