wondering about a slight mechanics glitch with poisons

if we try to dilute a poison with water to make vitae potion it becomes useless unless we have the right alchemical skills, yet to poison someone orally we must add it to water, i know the rule is there to stop people short cuttting but was wondering if we could come up with some better wording, that's all.

I think anyone who says they werent posioned because they are drinking water and you cant posion water should be slapped and will probably be slaped by the ref's for being a numpty..

You can either dilute the poison a little, resulting in a poisoned drink, or you can dilute it too far, and result in unpleasant tasting water. The precision to find that tiny point in the middle where it is viable soul potion requires an alchemist. (Despite the fact there is no in game mechanic to do this... :) )
So then he goes, YOU SHALL NOT PASS, and I say "I've got WINGS? I can FLY?" It was hilarious! The dwarf was tough, but the elf was delicious and they had some men and these four bite-sized guys, too. The wizard was fuming when I flew off.

Soul poison is specifically useable in drinks, so yes.

Any poison listed as being useable via ingestion means you can put it in someone's food or drink. The original 'flavour text' about the basic potions and poisons were basically that the poisons were simply super concentrated doses of the potions, but that merely diluting it does not change a poison into a potion. You can still use poisons in food or drink, where appropriate.

another question, for a different characters needs. can you put a contingency glyph on a scroll that would activate the scroll?

for several different purposes such as:

when in contact with damaged armour. i.e. mend armour scroll
when touched by a specific person. i.e. no one but me can use them/ the person that bought it can use it
when touched by someone other than a specific person i.e. the haran touches it and it activates a pertify scroll =P
when in contact with a person/object under the effects of a specific spell i.e. a de-pet scroll

thanks muchly

The whole point of scrolls is that they are meant to be read. They are not intelligent in any way so cannot activate themselves at a specific time, they must be read.

You could cast contingency on an item (including a scroll) to do any of the things you suggested BUT you would have to re-cast the spell each day as contingency only lasts that long.

Alternatively, speak to a crafter and they may be able to make you an item that activates at a specific time.

To clarify, Contingency cannot be cast on anything / one except yourself. Contingency: Other, however, can.

Contingecy Glyph... on a scroll... no!

Draw a glyph on a static object and cast a spell into it. The glyph will cast the spell under the conditions specified at the time of casting until it has run out of power. The cost of this spell is 12 + the cost of the spell cast into the glyph + the amount of power the glyph has to cast with.



Key words: Static Object

Such as a flagstone, a step etc... not something that is going to get carried around and essentially let you have 2 contingencies

(Synonyms of 'Static' include: 'not moving', 'stationary'', 'motionless', 'fixed')
