I like this, it could add some flavor to battle. One of my players loves flame spewing weapons, and given a medieval campaign I can see where the implementation of this would perk up his day. Good submission!

Thanks for the welcome and comments! And I applied the correction.

Gather the components should be easy, it's the magical evocation that'll require a very powerful magician or a joint effort among group of skilled spell casters. I like Valadaar's idea of the duration being dependent on the intensity of the drinker's passion. Still, it could be just a random variable like a 1d4 where a person who holds out the longest releases an even more powerful combustion.

Haha, I love your ideas. I had actually thought about the suicide bomber angle, a tactic often used by rebellious peasants with little resources to fight with. Thank you for the comment, it is very much appreciated. Go to Comment

I used this too with great success. I made Arken a likeable host, well received by his patrons. They even didn't mind the use of the crypt fights, one PC seeing it as enterprising. It's not until the PCs started digging into his past that he began to change his otherwise pleasant demeanor.

Man-Eating Grapes

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes.

The grapes literally eat their victims from the inside out, via cell death, melting and destroying the organs in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, of the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
