A Potion by any other name would still smell...

[rolls dice] like goat piss and cinnamon.

I've been planning to do something like this for a while now.  Here's a short list of some alternate 'potions' for D&D.  All follow the normal rules for potions as far as usage and duration and effect.  Only the form has changed.

Xi Wang Mu's Peaches of Immortality/Apples of Idunn: potion of longevity
Egg Shen's Steaming Gourd: potion of heroism
Gummi Berry Juice: potion of giant strength (unless you're a Gummi Bear, then it's a potion of jump)
Black Lotus Flower: potion of poison
Atalanta's Golden Apple: potion of speed
Rapunzel's Tear: potion of cures (or specifically cure blindness)

Got more?  Feel free to add to the list in the comments. 


  1. The Brown Bagged Colt 45: 15 damage reduction and +3 to str and con/ -3 to dex and int. 50/50 chance to a +/- 3 to charisma;)

  2. not quite what you meant, but funny.

  3. That is funny. And I'm a gonzo enough DM to even use it. :D
