A comment by Alaundo made me think this up. I hope our favorite Head Scribe will enjoy this.

Summon Irritated Moderator
Conjuration (summoning)
Level: Scribe of Candlekeep 0
Components: V
Casting Time: 1 standard action

With this spell, any scribe of Candlekeep can request a visitation by Alaundo, called by some the Irritated Moderator. Alaundo will appear within 1d8 hours, should he feel the request is worthy of his attention. If it is, he always appears with his dreaded staff of the irritated moderator +5, which has been observed to have the ability to cast undefeatable erase and arcane lock enchantments.

Indeed, Bookwyrm. A most useful spell to be sure, however, lets hope it's not cast too often...

The Chosen of Vhaeraun
"Nature is governed by certain immutable rules. By virtue of claw and fang, the lion will always triumph over the goat.Given time, the pounding of the sea will wear away the stone. And when dark elves mingle with the lighter races, the offspring invariably take after the dark parent. It is all much the same. That which is greater shall prevail. Our numbers increase steadily, both through birth and conquest. The dark elves are the dominant race, so ordained by the gods." Ka'Narlist of the Ilythiiri.

You're quite welcome, Alaundo. And I'd thought of saying 1d12, but felt that then you'd say something about not being that old.

While I understand the concept behind the staff of the irritated moderator, I find myself wondering about the origin of such an object. Is this purely a Candlekeep creation, or was it detailed in a parody D&D tome?. Also, whose idea was it?.

I believe Bookwyrm or The Sage came out with it once on these forums, and it just stuck

I know of the Bookwyrm by way of reputation only, but I know the Sage personally and given that fact, I find myself thinking that he was likely responsible for the term .

This is purely a Candlekeep creation I could be wrong but I believe that Bookwyrm was the one who fleshed out both the staff and the spell.

Yes, Wood Elf, you could be wrong.

The first time the staff was mentioned was in this post.

I have some new updates -



Brew of Relief
Preparation: 3 hrs.
DC: 15
Dosage: 2 applications
Duration: Special
Description: Originally, this brew made of different herbs and weeds was created to slow down the effects of poison so as to allow time for a poisoned character to get help. However, the brew has a few side effects that allow more flexibility to the uses that this brew can offer. When drunk, the brew suppresses all effects of poisons and diseases were actually neutralized for 12 hours.

For this brew to work, the imbiber must make a Fort. Save (DC 25). If the save fails, the imbiber must drink another dosage worth and once more try to make the Fort Save (DC 20 this time). After the initial consumption, for every 12 hours that pass, the drinker of this brew needs to make a Fort. Save (DC 25) for the brew to continue working another 12 hours. If that save is not successful, the character must once again consume another dosage and make a Fort Save at DC 20 for it to work again.
Material Cost: 500 gp

I only wish that was what I was actually doing . But as you should know, I was helping a friend capture and catalog several types of rare insect...

Anyway, I have a few other potion additions. They all come direct from the gaming table of DL campaign this evening -

Nutritional Brew
Preparation: 20 min.
DC: 20
Dosage: 1
Duration: 1 day
Description: This mixture of different herbs and weeds that when prepared properly and drunk will give the imbiber the nutritional value of a full day meal and thus preventing the need to eat. This brew is very bitter and tastes bad so it is mostly used when a character has no food to eat. This brew can only be used safely for seven straight days before the drinker’s stomach starts to rebel. For each day of use after the seventh, the character must make a Fort Save (DC 30) or start to sicken and throw up for the entire day (treat character as if strength, constitution and dexterity are at 3). The character can once again safely start using this brew after he/she has waited an equal length of time (e.g., if the character took it for 7 days, then the character must not use this brew for seven more days before he/she can once again safely drink it)
Note: This brew only allows the drinker to survive without food, it does not help the drinker to survive without liquids.
Material Cost: 450 gp

Capture and catalogue rare insects you say? Would any of these insects happen to be magical? hehe I'm just teasing but really why not use some of them for ideas for monster insects? Or if not maybe just as spell components

By the way awesome stuff Any of it come from a particular region? Like Troll Weed might have originated in the Evermoors?

As I said previously, these potions were originally created for my DL campaign, so their origins are tied to the world of Krynn for my gaming purposes. Although, the 'Troll Weed' could I suppose have come from the Evermoors . I have another brew which originally come from the Farsea Marshes, and some incense that came from the jungles of Chult, but since they both haven't seen play-testing I'm hestitant to post them here.

I'll have something by tomorrow...hopefully .

This . . . "numbweed" . . . it wouldn't be made in an incredibly stinky process that can only be done with a particular plant found on a world with Negligable Resources, that otherwise Parallels Earth?
