A place wherein this Dwarven Cleric can share his love of maps, dice, miniatures, and all things involving gaming and general geekery--not to mention the occasional witty non-gaming observations--whilst escaping from the humdrum existence of his routine Terran existence.

Hail and Well Met, fellow traveler! May my Stronghold provide a place for enlightenment and amusement, and somewhere to keep your dice dry. Enter and rest awhile.

[A to Z April] C is for Charred Brimstone Mist (Beverage)

Charred Brimstone Mist

This brew is believed to have first been fermented by a half-elf mage-turned-barkeep named Ji’avan, but no-one knows for sure. When asked about its source, Ji’avan would simply respond with an inscrutable smile and silence. The brew is not common, but can be found across the realm.

The brew itself is a dark brown color with a syrupy texture. It smells vaguely of burning mint and tastes metallic. When imbibed, it will stain the tongue and teeth for several hours. After drinking, it has been known to cause tingling and numbness in one’s extremities. These are side effects; when one drinks from the bottle, one receives the benefit of a resist energy spell (fire) (10) for five minutes.

The typical bottle is brass and multi-faceted with a screw-on lid. The body of the bottle itself is often wrapped in fine cord. These bottles, when new, each contain three doses of the brew, although the effects of multiple drinks will not stack.

**Many thanks to Dyson Logos and his Random Table of Potion Containers, used to create the bottle for this particular brew.

Welcome all and thanks for the kind words, as well as the visit.

And who's to say the drink ain't real, eh? Somewhere...somewhen....

Mmm, sounds good. Saving throw vs. intoxication?
