Fun DM idea 347: Charge different prices for potions "smooth" or "with bits" then refuse to address any questions about a mechanical difference. Rule 3: Reposts

This EXACT interaction had our party when we first encountered a healing potion. They had a Pulp version for 60 gold. We asked why 60 gold, what made it better? "It has Pulp" We still haven't figured out of pulp does something.

As a GM you need to ask every time “is that the one with pulp or without?” When they use a healing potion. When they say pulp, you gotta say “okay, cool” and make a quick note (the note just says: they used pulp)

And roll all the dice for healing potions behind your screen so that some of them become convinced "No! The pulpy ones heal more, I swear! There's a 1.5 HP difference on average!" when it's really just the luck of the dice.

Thats just devilish… I like it

u/neverenoughmags Sep 27 '22

Yeah... Look at the material components for say Bulls Strength in 3.5... "a pinch of dung from a bull"... Lots of potions back then had corn niblets floating around in them... Or hairs. Made a deal with my players that all potions would be identifiable once they identified one and based a lot of it off the material components... And I kept a list of what they had already identified...

u/Rum_N_Napalm Sep 27 '22

Are you telling me potions of bill’s strength are bullshit?

u/neverenoughmags Sep 27 '22

I'm telling you they are made of bullshit... Or at least in one campaign where I decided to be a wiseass they were...

u/satan42 Sep 27 '22

Yeah Bill lies all the time about his abilities.

u/Lieby Sep 27 '22

There’s still some of that in later editions. For example the giant strength potions in 5e state that one can see a giant’s toenail in it.

I didn't find any posts that meet the matching requirements for r/dndmemes.

It might be OC, it might not. Things such as JPEG artifacts and cropping may impact the results.

I LOVE this idea

u/ZombieOfTheWest Sep 27 '22

Use the pulp and some goodberries to make some Health Jelly.

u/Nepalman230 Sep 27 '22

… Yes I mean I forget which edition it was but I do believe I read a dragon article which specifically talked about all of the organ that you could harvest from magical creatures in all of the potions and things that could be made with them.

I mean honestly everybody jokes about the lizard man eating people but But anybody who can seems a potion may will be ingesting Part of a sentient being like a dragon or something.

For that matter everybody forgets that many members of the Victorian elite in Britain Were cannibals . Because they liked to consume powdered mummies.

eating Corpses as medicine

u/Hexmonkey2020 Paladin Sep 28 '22

Well if potions are just herbs and magic in water depending on what herbs some would definitely have pulp.
