Do you remember the 1st Ed. rules for mixing potions, either by intermingling or drinking two potions very quickly? It could cause funny effects from permanent effects to actually killing the imbiber.

I was wondering, why was it not converted in to later editions? And are you (playing the 2nd/3.x Ed.) is still using it today anyhow?

So the rules trump the Realms in your campaign? Boooo.



The rules are just what the game goes by - by stickin to zthe core rules the unique atmosphere that is the FR is not necessarily and immediatly stripped away, IMO.

HA! That is just great! Thanks a lot KEJR for this shared information.

Because randomness is hard to 'balance' and takes power away from players.

I never liked the potion miscibility rules. That's probably because I gamed with a couple of "gentlmen" who were very hard nosed about using the rules "exactly as written!!!"

Of course, that meant that using a healing potion of any sort while under the effects of another potion resulted in a roll on the dreaded chart.

I lost several characters to healing potion explosions. It was one of the reasons I started DMing in the first place.

I like it. I think this may well find a way into my games.

That explains it! I knew I'd read those more recently than my last perusal thru the 2E DMG... I just couldn't remember where I'd read them.

Some people are going to be very surprised soon.

I still use them from time to time as well even in current rules. :)

Great to hear that - I loved it when playing 1st Ed. However, we had a group decission on taking the new 3.0 rules as they are/were - with no add ins or changes. that ment also - no potion miscibility.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 03 Dec 2006 : 22:13:58
I'm pretty certain it was in 2E. I think it was chucked out the window for simplicity's sake, in 3E. Though, if I was DM'ing, I'd happily keep those rules in place.
