Scholarblight is a preferred poison for those who target arcane spellcasters for assassination. It causes headaches and impairs a victim’s ability to form or recall memories through mild confusion and dysphoria. More drastically, victims who fail a saving throw against scholarblight lose their ability to read or write for 24 hours, as letters and symbols seem to twist, move, and reorient themselves. This prevents victims from using scrolls and spellbooks, but also protects an afflicted creature from any effect dependent on reading text, such as explosive runes.
