Kryx RPGThemesCreatures
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 attains the maximum possible size in the space available. Until the effect ends, the creature has advantage on Athletics and Brawn checks and any weapon it wields grows to match its new size, dealing 1d8 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 has disadvantage on Athletics and Brawn checks and any weapon it wields shrinks to match its new size, dealing 1d6 less damage (this can’t reduce the damage below 1).

Augment
You can augment this concoction with the following options, expending catalysts for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional catalyst expended.

  • 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 meter.

    Reduce. The creature had advantage on Stealth checks.
