  • Sticky Napalm. You can expend 1 additional catalyst to increase the burning DC by 2 and water and sand don’t extinguish the fire on the target. The effects of your sticky napalm end when the burning level on the target is reduced to 0.

As an action, you can apply this bubbling purple gel that eats through adhesives. It destroys normal adhesives (such as tar, tree sap, or glue) in a 1.5-meter cube in a single round but takes 1d4+1 rounds to deal with more powerful adhesives (tanglefoot bags, spider webbing, and so on).

You decide what change the potion will illicit, including height, weight, facial features, sound of voice, hair length, coloration, and distinguishing characteristics, if any. You can make the creature appear as a member of another species, though none of its statistics change. The creature also can’t appear as a creature of a different size than it, and its basic shape stays the same; if it’s bipedal, it can’t become quadrupedal, for instance.

Augment

You can increase the pool of catalysts by 1 for each additional catalyst expended.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can apply this clear resin that protects a weapon from harmful attacks from oozes, rust monsters, and similar things, rendering the weapon immune for the duration. One pot can coat one single two-handed weapon, two one-handed or light weapons, or 50 ammunition items. Immersing the weapon in water or similar liquid washes it off.

unstable, 1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial full of sticky webs. As an action, a creature can throw this bomb at a creature within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. Writhing strands of webbing wrap up the creature like a mummy. The target must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be restrained for the duration. At the end of each of its turns, the target can make another Reflex saving throw.

On a successful save, it breaks free and the concoction ends on the target.

The cocoon has 10 Defense and 30 Health. When reduced to 0 health, the cocoon is ripped open, which frees the target.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that sounds like a polyglot of languages when the cork is removed. A creature can drink the contents as an action to understand the literal meaning of any spoken language that it hears. The creature also understand any written language that it sees, but it must be touching the surface on which the words are written. It takes about 1 minute to read one page of text.

This effect doesn’t decode secret messages in a text or a glyph, such as an arcane sigil, that isn’t part of a written language.

Augment

Tongues Potion. You can expend 1 additional catalysts so the creature also understands the true meaning of any spoken language it hears. Moreover, when the target speaks, any creature that knows at least one language and can hear the target understands what it says.

As an action, you can create a vial that holds a regular flame that sheds light equivalent in brightness to a torch and lasts until the vial is broken. The flame creates no heat and doesn’t use oxygen.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create this acidic oil. As an action, a creature can coat one weapon with the oil to cause it to corrode creatures it hits. For the duration, the weapon deals an extra 1d4 acid damage when it hits.

Alternatively, you can touch a quiver containing arrows or bolts, granting the ammunition pulled from it the same effect. The oil’s effect ends on a piece of ammunition when it hits or misses.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d4 for each additional catalyst expended and an additional 1d4 for every other additional catalyst expended.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that optically appears bigger or smaller than it actually is. A creature can drink the contents as an action to change its appearance, gaining an illusory appearance.

The effect disguises physical appearance as well as clothing, armor, weapons, and equipment. The creature can choose to seem 30 centimeters shorter or taller and appear thin, fat, or in between. The creature can’t change its body type, so it must choose a form that has the same basic arrangement of limbs. Otherwise, the extent of the illusion is up to the creature. The effect lasts for the duration, unless the creature uses its action to dismiss it sooner.

The changes wrought by this effect fail to hold up to physical inspection. For example, if this effect is used to add a hat to a creature’s outfit, objects pass through the hat, and anyone who touches it would feel nothing or would feel the creature’s head and hair. If this effect is used to appear thinner than the creature is, the hand of someone who reaches out to touch the creature would bump into it while it was seemingly still in midair.

A creature can use its action to inspect a target and make an ability check using Perception (Intelligence) against your alchemical save DC. If it succeeds, it becomes aware that the target is disguised.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create this sealed jar. A creature can open it as an action to release an overwhelmingly antiseptic odor so that it covers other smells for the duration. Creatures within a sphere of the jar have advantage on all saving throws against scent based attacks and effects while the sap’s odor remains, but they have disadvantage on any scent-based Perception checks during that time.

As an action, you can create a packet of dust. A creature can use an action to sprinkle a pinch of it over water. The dust turns a sphere of water into one marble-sized pellet, which floats or rests near where the dust was sprinkled. The pellet’s weight is negligible.

Someone can use an action to smash the pellet against a hard surface, causing the pellet to shatter and release the water the dust absorbed. Doing so ends that pellet’s magic.

An elemental composed mostly of water that is exposed to a pinch of the dust must make a Fortitude saving throw, taking 4d6 necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d6 for each additional catalyst expended.

unstable, 1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of red liquid that continuously contracts to a tiny bead and then expands to color the clear liquid around it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to grow larger or smaller for the duration.

Everything the creature is wearing and carrying changes size with it. Any item dropped by an affected creature returns to normal size at once.

Enlarge. The creature’s size doubles in all dimensions, and its weight is multiplied by eight. This growth increases its size by one category—from Medium to Large, for example. If there isn’t enough room for the creature to double its size, the creature or object attains the maximum possible size in the space available. Until the effect ends, the creature also has advantage on Strength checks. The creature’s weapons also grow to match its new size. While these weapons are enlarged, the creature’s attacks with them deal 1d6 extra damage.

Reduce. The creature’s size is halved in all dimensions, and its weight is reduced to one-eighth of normal. This reduction decreases its size by one category—from Medium to Small, for example. Until the effect ends, the creature also has disadvantage on Strength checks. The creature’s weapons also shrink to match its new size. While these weapons are reduced, the creature’s attacks with them deal 1d6 less damage (this can’t reduce the damage below 1).

Augment

You can expend 1 additional catalyst to enlarge or reduce the creature’s size one additional step.

Enlarge. The creature gains 10 temporary health and its reach increases by 1.5 meters.

Reduce. The creature had advantage on Stealth checks and can move through tight areas.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create this poisonous oil. As an action, a creature can coat one weapon with the oil to cause it inject poison into creatures it hits. For the duration, the weapon deals an extra 1d4 poison damage when it hits.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d4 for each additional catalyst expended and an additional 1d4 for every other additional catalyst expended.

As an action, you can create this bomb. As an action, a creature can throw this bomb at a point within 9 meters, where it explodes on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature takes 2d6 concussion damage and 2d6 fire damage.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage.

Augment

You can increase the fire damage by 1d6 and the concussion damage by 2d6 for each additional catalyst expended.

10 days

As you spend 1 minute to write on parchment, paper, or some other suitable writing material, the ink you use transforms into a potent illusion that lasts for the duration.

To you and any creatures you designate when you create the writing, the writing appears normal, written in your hand, and conveys whatever meaning you intended when you wrote the text. To all others, the writing appears as if it were written in an unknown or magical script that is unintelligible. Alternatively, you can cause the writing to appear to be an entirely different message, written in a different hand and language, though the language must be one you know.

Should the effect be dispelled, the original script and the illusion both disappear.

A creature with truesight can read the hidden message.

unstable, 1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create a container that looks empty but feels as though it holds liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action to become invisible for the duration. Anything the creature is wearing or carrying is invisible as long as it is on its person. The invisibility ends if it attacks, throws a concoction, uses a maneuver, or casts a spell.

This effect ends for a creature if it takes damage or someone uses an action to shake or slap it awake. Additionally, a creature can repeat the saving throw each minute or if it hears an extraordinarily loud noise such as the thunderwave spell, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Undead and creatures immune to being charmed aren’t affected by this spell.

Augment

Sleeping Gas. You can expend 1 additional catalyst to so the potion is in gas form. As an action, a creature can throw this vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make the Fortitude saving throw.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of green liquid that continuously produces a goopy coating on the outside of the vial. A creature can drink the contents as an action. While it isn’t wearing armor its body becomes slick until the effect ends. The creature’s Defense becomes 12 + half its proficiency bonus + its Dexterity (max 4). The effect ends if the creature dons armor or if it dismisses the effect as an action.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create this bomb. As an action, a creature can throw this bomb at a point within 9 meters, where it explodes on impact. Smoke spreads to fill a sphere twice as big as normal for the duration. The smoke spreads around corners. A creature with darkvision can’t see through this smoke. Non-magical light, as well as light created by spells of using equal or less energy, can’t illuminate the area.

5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that releases a quiet howl like a wolf when opened. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain the ability to comprehend and verbally communicate with beasts for the duration. The knowledge and awareness of many beasts is limited by their intelligence, but at a minimum, beasts can give you information about nearby locations and monsters, including whatever they can perceive or have perceived within the past day. You might be able to persuade a beast to perform a small favor for you, at the GM’s discretion.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with a grasshopper’s hind legs suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to increase its speed by 3 meters and have advantage on Athletics checks to jump until the effect ends.

Augment

As an action, you can create a vial of fluid that smells like the smeller’s favorite meal, but tastes like paper. A creature can drink the contents as an action to receive enough sustenance to satisfy its solid and liquid nourishment needs for a day.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create a bag of sticky, adhesive, black tar. As an action, a creature can throw the bag at a point within 9 meters, where it bursts on impact. Sticky, adhesive, tar covers the ground in a sphere centered on the point and turns it into difficult terrain for the duration.

When the tar appears, each creature standing in its area must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be restrained. A creature that enters the area or ends its turn there must also succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be restrained.

A creature restrained by the tar or one that can touch the creature can use its action to make an Acrobatics or Brawn check (its choice) against your alchemical save DC.

On a success, the target is freed.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create this stone. As an action, a creature can throw this stone at a point within 9 meters, where it shatters on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature takes 4d6 concussion damage and is deafened for the duration.

On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and isn’t deafened.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d6 for each additional catalyst expended.

5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid. A creature can inject the serum as an action. The injected creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature can’t speak a deliberate lie for the duration. You know whether the creature succeeds or fails on its saving throw. An affected creature is aware of the effect and can thus avoid answering questions to which it would normally respond with a lie. Such a creature can be evasive in its answers as long as it remains within the boundaries of the truth.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of clear liquid that has wind continuously moving within it. A creature can pour the contents on itself as an action to gain one of the following benefits for the duration:

  • It gains a +2 bonus to Defense
  • Ranged weapon attacks made against it have disadvantage on the attack roll
Augment

You can expend 1 additional catalyst so the concoctions gives both benefits.

As an action, you can create this vial of clear liquid with a constant sparkle. As an action, a creature can throw the vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. All nonmagical liquid within a sphere centered on a point of your choice within 9 meters is purified and rendered free of poison and disease.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of clear liquid that has an air bubble suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to have a bubble of air around their head for the duration. The air allows the creature to breathe and it continuously renews itself.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of foul-tasting, milky tonic. A creature can drink the contents as an action to have advantage on saving throws against diseases.

If it is diseased, one disease is cured. If more than one disease afflicts the target, one disease is cured at random.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with feathers or leather suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to alter their physical form so wings spread out from their back and they gain a flying speed of 18 meters for the duration. The wings can appear feathery or leathery. When this spell’s duration would end, if the creature is still flying, it floats gently to the ground at 18 meters per round.

5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of grey liquid that appears to be out of focus. A creature can drink the contents as an action to become blurred, shifting and wavering to all who can see it. For the duration, any creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against the creature. An attacker is immune to this effect if it doesn’t rely on sight, as with blindsight, or can see through illusions, as with truesight.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid which smells of nature: dirt, trees, caves, and water. A creature can drink the contents as an action to briefly gain a profound sense of the surrounding territory. In the outdoors, the creature can sense details about the land within 10 kilometers of it. In caves and other natural underground settings, the radius is limited to 90 meters. The effect doesn’t function where nature has been replaced by construction, such as in dungeons and towns.

The creature instantly gain knowledge of up to three facts of its choice about any of the following subjects as they relate to the area:

  • terrain and bodies of water
  • prevalent plants, minerals, animals, or peoples
  • powerful celestials, fey, fiends, elementals, or undead
  • influence from other planes of existence
  • buildings

For example, the creature could determine the location of powerful undead in the area, the location of major sources of safe drinking water, and the location of any nearby towns.

unstable, 1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid whose smells momentarily spikes the adrenaline of a creature who smells it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to sense the presence of danger within 36 meters. For the duration, the creature can’t be surprised, attack rolls against it can’t gain advantage, it has advantage on initiative checks, it has advantage on Perception checks to find traps, and it has advantage on Reflex saving throws to avoid traps.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of cold, oily liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain the ability to see in the dark. For the duration, the creature has darkvision out to a range of 18 meters. If it already has darkvision, its range increases by 18 meters.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of black and white liquid that continuously swirls. A creature can drink the contents as an action to be granted a measure of protection from death.

The first time the creature would drop to 0 health as a result of taking damage, the creature instead drops to 1 health, and the effect ends.

If the effect is still in effect when the target is subjected to an effect that would kill it instantaneously without dealing damage, that effect is instead negated against the target, and the effect ends.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional catalyst so the target gains 3d10 temporary health when it drops to 1 health.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of cold, oily liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain the ability to see in bright areas and suppress the effects of any Sunlight Sensitivity species trait for the duration.

unstable, 4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with a forked branch suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to find the shortest, most direct physical route to a specific fixed location that it is familiar with on the same plane of existence. If the destination is on another plane of existence, if the destination moves (such as a mobile fortress), or if the destination isn’t specific (such as “a green dragon’s lair”), the effect fails.

For the duration, as long as the creature is on the same plane of existence as the destination, it knows how far it is and in what direction it lies. While the creature are traveling there, whenever it is presented with a choice of paths along the way, it automatically determines which path is the shortest and most direct route (but not necessarily the safest route) to the destination.

As an action, this 30-centimeter-long wooden tube begins to shake and emit a handful of white sparks, shedding light as a torch. It flies up to 36 meters where it explodes with a dazzling display of colors. Each creature in a sphere must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failed save, a creature takes 3d8 fire damage and is blinded and deafened until the end of its next turn.

On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional catalyst expended.

unstable, 1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid whose liquid is ghostly transparent. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain the ability to see through solid objects to a range of 9 meters. Within that range, the creature has darkvision if it doesn’t already have it. For the duration, the creature perceives objects as ghostly, transparent images.

This vision can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by 30 centimeters of stone, 2 centimeters of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 1 meter of wood or dirt.

unstable, 1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with a cricket that continuously expands suspended in it. The vial can be poured on an insect to transform it into a giant version of its natural form. The insect is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health, when you use another giant insect liquid concoction, or when the concoction ends.

Centipede. A centipede becomes a Giant Centipede.

Spider. A spider becomes a Giant Wolf Spider (+2 damage on bite) or a Giant Spider.

Wasp. A wasp becomes a Giant Wasp.

Other Insects. An insect becomes a Swarm of Insects.

The GM might allow you to choose different targets. For example, if you transform a bee, its giant version might have the same statistics as a giant wasp.

When it attacks, make a melee alchemical attack in place of its attack, but retain the damage and other effects.

As a bonus action on each of your turns, you can verbally command any creature you enlarged with this concoction if the creature is within 90 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what action the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this concoction with the following options, expending catalysts for each option.
  • You can transform one additional creature for every 1 additional catalyst expended.

  • Swarm of Poisonous Snakes. You can expend 1 additional catalyst to transform a snake into a Swarm of Poisonous Snakes. You can transform one additional creature for every 2 additional catalysts expended.

  • Giant Scorpion. You can expend 1 additional catalysts to transform a scorpion into a Giant Scorpion.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial of yellow and pink swirling gas. As an action, a creature can throw the vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw against poison.

On a failed save, a creature takes 3d8 poison damage and is poisoned and confused for the duration.

On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t poisoned and confused.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional catalyst expended.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with a shining gold object suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to brings to its mind a brief summary of the significant lore about a person, place, or object. The lore might consist of current tales, forgotten stories, or even secret lore that has never been widely known. If the thing isn’t of legendary importance, the creature gains no information. The more information the creature already has about the thing, the more precise and detailed the information it receive is.

The information the creature learns is accurate, but might be couched in figurative language. For example, if the creature has a mysterious magic axe on hand, the effect might yield this information: “Woe to the evildoer whose hand touches the axe, for even the haft slices the hand of the evil ones. Only a true Child of Stone, lover and beloved of Moradin, may awaken the true powers of the axe, and only with the sacred word Rudnogg on the lips.”

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of clear liquid that floats at the top of its container and has cloudy white impurities drifting in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to rise vertically, up to 9 meters, and remain suspended there for the duration. The potion can levitate a creature that weighs up to 150 kilos.

The creature can move only by pushing or pulling against a fixed object or surface within reach (such as a wall or a ceiling), which allows it to move as if it were climbing. The creature can change its altitude by up to 9 meters in either direction on its turn as part of its move.

If the creature is still aloft when the effect ends, the creature descends 18 meters per round for 1 minute until it lands, which it does safely. If it can’t land after 1 minute, the creature falls the remaining distance.

Augment

Flying Potion. You can expend 1 additional catalyst so the creature gains a flying speed of 18 meters for the duration instead of levitating.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that shifts from orange to blue and from hot to cold. A creature can drink the contents as an action so their body automatically adapts to hostile environments. The creature can adapt to underwater, extremely hot, extremely cold, or airless environments, allowing it to survive as if it were a creature native to that environment. The creature can breathe and move (though penalties to movement and attacks, if any for a particular environment, remain), and it takes no damage simply from being in that environment. You need not specify what environment the potion is adapting to when you create this concoction; simply activate it, and the creature’s body will instantly adapt to any hostile environment as needed throughout the duration.

The creature can somewhat adapt to extreme environmental features such as acid, lava, fire, and electricity. Any environmental feature that normally directly deals 1 or more dice of damage each round deals the creature only half the usual amount of damage.

As an action, you can create this vial of neon green swirling gas. As an action, a creature can throw the vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw against poison.

On a failed save, a creature is paralyzed until the end of its next turn.

unstable, 1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of purple liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain historical visions of a given location within 18 meters or object the creature touches.

Location. Rooms, streets, tunnels, and other discrete locations accumulate impressions left by powerful emotions experienced in a given area. These impressions offer the creature a picture of the location’s past.

The types of events most likely to leave impressions are those that elicited strong emotions: battles and betrayals, marriages and murders, births and great pain, or any other event where one emotion dominates. Everyday occurrences leave no residue for a caster to detect.

The vision of the event is dreamlike and shadowy. The creature does not gain special knowledge of those involved in the vision, though it might be able to read large banners or other writing if they are in its language.

Beginning with the most recent significant event at a location and working backward in time, the creature can sense one distinct event for every 10 minutes it maintains concentration, if any such events exist to be sensed.

Object. The creature experiences dreamlike and shadowy visions which let it learn about the past owners of an object. The creature learns the owner’s species, gender, age, and how the owner gained and lost the object. Beginning with the most recent owner of an object and working backward in time, the creature can sense one distinct owner for every 10 minutes it maintains concentration, if any such owner exists to be sensed.

Track. The creature can track creatures with an Intelligence of −4 or greater by following the trails of mental energy they leave behind. The creature has advantage on Streetwise and Wilderness checks made to track such creatures.

The impressions can extend 100 years into the past.

Augment

The impressions can be 500 years further in the past for each additional catalyst expended.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that looks, smells, and tastes like a healing potion or other beneficial potion. However, it is actually poison. A detect magic spell reveals its true nature.

A creature can drink the contents as an action. If a creature drinks it, it must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or be poisoned. At the start of each of its turns while it is poisoned in this way, it takes 4d6 poison damage. At the end of each of its turns, it can repeat the saving throw.

On a successful save, the poison damage it takes on its subsequent turns decreases by 1d6. The poison ends when the damage decreases to 0.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 6d6 for each additional catalyst expended.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that appears to have a visible infection in the middle that is continuously washed clean. A creature can drink the contents as an action to remove the blinded, deafened, paralyzed, or poisoned condition.

Augment

Greater Purification Potion. You can expend 1 additional catalysts to instead remove any reductions to one of its abilities, remove one effect that reduces its maximum health, remove one effect that charmed or petrified it, or reduce its exhausted level by one.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of silvery liquid that glows brilliantly. A creature can drink the contents as an action so it can’t become diseased, has resistance to poison damage, and has advantage on saving throws against affects that cause any of the following conditions: blinded, charmed, deafened, frightened, paralysed, poisoned, or stunned.

10 days

As an action, you can spread this oil on a corpse or other remains. For the duration, the target is protected from decay and can’t become undead.

The effect also effectively extends the time limit on raising the target from the dead, since days spent under the influence of this effect don’t count against the time limit of spells such as resurrection.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that sparkles with hints of silver. A creature can drink the contents as an action to remove the blinded, deafened, or paralyzed condition.

Augment

Greater Restoration Potion. You can expend 1 additional catalysts to instead remove any reductions to one of its abilities, remove one effect that reduces its maximum health, remove one effect that charmed or petrified it, or reduce its exhausted level by one.

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with a humanoid shape suspended in it that continuously has its head sewn onto its body. As an action, you can feed this potion to a creature that has died within the last minute. That creature returns to life with 1 health. This effect can’t return to life a creature that has died of old age, nor can it restore any missing body parts.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of goopy yellowish liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action so its senses are almost impossible to foil. For the duration, the creature has advantage on Perception checks and can see things as they truly are out to a range of 36 meters, allowing it to:

  • see invisible creatures and objects
  • see into the Ethereal Plane. Ethereal creatures and objects appear ghostly and translucent.
Augment

True Seeing potion. You can expend 1 additional catalysts so the creature has truesight, allowing it to see the following in addition to those listed above:

  • see in normal and magical darkness
  • automatically detect visual illusions and succeed on saving throws against them
  • perceive the original form of a shapechanger or a creature that is transformed by magic
1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial of sticky black unguent that is thick and heavy in the container, but flows quickly when poured. The oil can cover a Medium or smaller creature, along with the equipment it’s wearing and carrying (one additional vial is required for each size category above Medium). Applying the oil takes 10 minutes. For the duration, the target’s movement is unaffected by difficult terrain, and spells and other magical effects can neither reduce the target’s speed nor cause the target to be paralyzed or restrained.

The target can also spend 1.5 meters of movement to automatically escape from nonmagical restraints, such as manacles or a creature that has it grappled.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial of slowly swirling neon blue gas. As an action, a creature can throw the vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw against poison.

On a failed save, a creature takes 5d6 poison damage and is poisoned and slowed 1 for the duration.

On a successful save, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t poisoned and slowed.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment
You can augment this concoction with the following options, expending catalysts for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 2d6 for each additional catalyst expended.

  • You can increase the slowed level by 1 for each additional catalyst expended.

5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial liquid with rocky pieces suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to turns its flesh as hard as stone. For the duration, the creature has resistance to nonmagical bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

Augment

Ironskin. You can expend 1 additional catalyst so the target has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid that smells and tastes like the inside of a cave. A creature can drink the contents as an action so its skin receives sensory inputs, allowing it to feel light and sound. Its face must be uncovered to use this effect, as the skin of its face acts as the sensory receiver. It gains blindsight out to a range of 9 meters. If it already has blindsight, its range increases by 9 meters.

1 minute/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of viscous crimson liquid that smells and tastes foul. A creature can drink the contents as an action. When the oil is drunk—and at the start each of the creature’s turns thereafter—it regains 3d4 health.

If the creature is able to regenerate, it does not become wounded or incapacitated as a result of regaining health.

If the creature takes acid or fire damage, this healing doesn’t function at the start of the creature’s next turn.

Augment

You can increase the healing by 2d4 for each additional catalyst expended.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of cloudy green fluid that smells of the sea and has a jellyfish-like bubble floating in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to breathe underwater for the duration, but retains its normal breathing pattern.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of blue-green fluid that has lily pads floating on top of the liquid. A creature can drink the contents as an action to move across any liquid surface—such as water, acid, mud, snow, quicksand, or lava—as if it were harmless solid ground (creatures crossing molten lava can still take damage from the heat).

If a submerged creature drinks this potion, the effect carries the target to the surface of the liquid at a rate of 18 meters per round.

unstable, 1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial full of sticky webs. As an action, a creature can throw the vial at a point within 9 meters, shattering it on impact. A mass of thick, sticky webbing expands from that point. The webs fill a sphere twice as big as normal from that point for the duration. The webs are difficult terrain and lightly obscure their area.

If the webs aren’t anchored between two solid masses (such as walls or trees) or layered across a floor, wall, or ceiling, the web collapses on itself, and the concoction ends at the start of your next turn. Webs layered over a flat surface have a depth of 1.5 meters.

Each creature that starts its turn in the webs or that enters them during its turn must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failed save, the creature is restrained as long as it remains in the webs or until it breaks free.

A creature restrained by the webs can use its action to make an Acrobatics or Brawn check (its choice) against your alchemical save DC. If it succeeds, it is no longer restrained.

The webs are flammable. Any 1.5-meter cube of webs exposed to fire burns away in 1 round, dealing 2d4 fire damage to any creature that starts its turn in the fire.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of rainbow liquid with fur suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to transform into a beast companion form that you know, using 2 resources. You can learn a form that you have seen before and that you have detailed knowledge of and you can learn a number of forms equal to your proficiency bonus.

The drinker can revert to its normal form earlier by using a bonus action on its turn. It automatically revert if the concoction ends, if it falls unconscious, if it drops to 0 health, or if it dies.

While the drinker is transformed, the following rules apply:

  • Its game statistics are replaced by the statistics of the chosen companion form, though it retains its personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma. It also retains all of its skill and saving throw proficiencies, in addition to gaining those of the creature. If the creature has the same proficiency as the drinker and the bonus in its stat block is higher than the drinkers, use the creature’s bonus instead of the drinkers.
  • The drinker retains its health and Health Dice. It gains temporary health equal to the companion form’s Constitution multiplied by double the amount of resources used.
  • The drinker’s ability to speak or take any action that requires hands is limited to the capabilities of the beast form.
  • The drinker retains the benefit of any feats and features from your class, species, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so with the following limitations
    • The drinker can’t use any of its special senses, such as darkvision, unless the new form also has that sense.
    • The drinker can’t cast spells. Transforming doesn’t break concentration on a spell the drinker already cast, however, or prevent it from taking actions that are part of a spell, such as call lightning, that it already cast.
    • The drinker retains its mana, mana limit, stamina dice, and dice limit, but does not gain the new form’s mana or stamina dice.
    • The drinker can use any maneuver it knows or a maneuver known by the new form.
    • You can expend catalysts so the form gains 3 stamina dice per catalyst expended, up to your catalyst limit.
  • The drinker chooses whether its equipment falls to the ground in its space, merges into its new form, or is worn by it. Worn equipment functions as normal, but the GM decides whether it is practical for the new form to wear a piece of equipment, based on the creature’s shape. The drinker’s equipment doesn’t change shape to match the new form, and any equipment that the new form can’t wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment that merges with the form has no effect until the drinker leaves the form.
Augment

The potion drinker can use an additional resource for each additional catalyst expended. If you expend 5 or more catalysts and the concoction lasts for the duration, the transformation lasts until it is dispelled.

1 hour/catalyst

As you spend 1 minute, you can create a vial of clear liquid that that has clouds suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to assume a gaseous form for the duration, appearing as wisps of cloud. While in this cloud form, a creature has a flying speed of 90 meters and has resistance to damage from nonmagical attacks. The only actions a creature can take in this form are the Dash action or to revert to its normal form. Reverting takes 1 minute, during which time a creature is incapacitated and can’t move. Until the effect ends, a creature can revert to cloud form, which also requires the 1-minute transformation.

If a creature is in cloud form and flying when the effect ends, the creature descends 18 meters per round for 1 minute until it lands, which it does safely. If it can’t land after 1 minute, the creature falls the remaining distance.

1 hour/catalyst

As an action, you can create this vial with a sugary taste. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain the gift of glibness. When the creature makes a Charisma check, it can replace the number it rolls with a 15. Additionally, no matter what it says, magic that would determine if it is telling the truth indicates that it is being truthful.

unstable, 5 minutes/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of syrupy liquid that looks like liquified iron. A creature can drink the contents as an action to have resistance to all damage for the duration.

Augment

You can expend 2 additional catalysts so the creature is immune to all damage instead of having resistance.

As an action, you can create a packet of coarse yellowish-red powder. As an action, a creature can throw the packet at a point within 9 meters, where it bursts on impact. Each creature in a sphere twice as big as normal centered on that point must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or be affected for 1 minute. An affected creature spends its action sneezing. Creatures that don’t need to breathe automatically succeed on this saving throw.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

As an action, you can create a vial of milky liquid with a strong alcohol smell. A creature can use an action to pour the contents of the tube onto a surface within reach. The liquid instantly dissolves up to 30 centimeters squared of adhesive it touches, including sovereign glue.

4 hours/catalyst

As an action, you can create a vial of liquid with an hourglass suspended in it. A creature can drink the contents as an action to gain a limited ability to see into the immediate future. For the duration, the creature can’t be surprised and have advantage on attack rolls, ability checks, and saving throws. Additionally, other creatures have disadvantage on attack rolls against it for the duration.

This effect immediately ends if the creature uses it again before its duration ends.
