Hydrofluoric Acid

Price 2,500 gp; Weight

ABOUT

The wise alchemist takes careful precautions whenever handling hydrofluoric acid. This corrosive substance—an occasional byproduct of volcanic gases that is used for industrial purposes—dissolves bones and causes tissue damage when even a small amount contacts the skin. The acid dissolves the body of any victim who dies from hydrofluoric acid poisoning unless the acid is neutralized within 1 minute with a successful DC 20 Heal or Craft (alchemy) check. Hydrofluoric acid must be stored in a magically reinforced container, as it dissolves mundane glass and corrodes metal over time.

DETAILS

Type poison, contact; Save Fortitude DC 20; Onset 1 minute; Frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; Cure 2 consecutive saves

EFFECTS

1 Str drain, 1d2 Con damage, and 2d6 acid damage
