As part of my continuing mental exercise to develop my campaign setting I am coming up with the magic systems.  (Note this is using Hero)

I will have a caster system and a system for artificing and ALCHEMY!

 

So I am looking to make a list is potions, oils and salves.  Ideally I'd like about 50-60.  I'll start:

 

1- Healing (a classic for a reason)

2- [insert] vision ( where it is IR UV Xray etc)

3- Strength

4- Agility/Dexterity

5- Running Speed

6- Fire/Ice/Poison breath

7- Darkness (more like a darkness grenade)

8- Water Breathing

9-

Don't forget he classic Love Potion! 2 versions: The specially brewed, "Fall in love with [designated person]" version, and the general "Fall in love with the next person you see" version. Both have endless comical possibilities when the wrong people drink them, or see the wrong person after they do so...

 

(Mind Control has too brief an effect. Go for Transform! Then give the potion Unluck to represent that,as GM, you *will* try to manipulate events to make it go astray. Or possibly this is a weird form of Hunted: Sadistic GM, 14-)

Here is a set I am building for my current campaign. There may be some duplication with above potions, I did not curate the list.

Oil of Sharpness was a name I was going to use for a Oil that grants +1 DC to a treated weapon. It would be used for mainly arrows and bolts since the charge would be used up on the first hit. So you could use it on a dagger but after the first successful hit then the bonus goes away.

 

You could also have this potion add Piercing Points if you use them in your campaign

Applied to somebody else's feet, they fall over a lot.

 

Personally, I wear slippers because they keep me from falling over.

 

What the hell kind of slippers do you wear?
