Pupil’s Friend

This mostly benign, malodorous mold induces temporary illness with no lasting effect, and it can be detected in food or drink with a DC 15 Perception check, unless the food is particularly pungent, in which case the Perception DC increases by up to 5. Named for students wishing to convincingly feign illness, anyone can easily cultivate this mold in dark, moist spaces.


Type poison, ingested; Save Fortitude DC 10; Onset 10 minutes; Frequency 1/minute for 15 minutes; Cure 1 save


Sickened for 1 minute; if the target is affected by a second dose while already under the effects of this poison, the victim is instead nauseated for 1 minute
