Well, actually, if you read the Chimera Oil item he linked to, it says just a few drops makes the skin soft as clay. 30 gallons of the stuff into the water system will cause some serious funkiness. *nods* Go to Comment

Question about this one...

How is the party supposed to figure out the cause? Even if they find the "ex-barrel", they aren't going to know that it slowly leaked into the water table, they just don't have enough knowledge to connect the two.

How do they avoid a similar fate?

(plus which, and I know it's fantasy, etc, but one gallon of toxic waste causing this? Sounds like potent stuff) Go to Comment

A logical way to bring Chimeria Oil into play.

How come I've never commented on this? It is a great idea, deserving at least a... BUMP! Go to Comment

When do the effects of the chimera oil wear off? Permantly malliable flesh could be quite troublesome. Imagine walking along and someone opens a door into your face. What does a person eat with teeth made of clay?

In the merging with the chimera oil, does it do anything for the scale of the creatures? The owl taking on mouse qualities, is that just an owl with whiskers and little round ears now or does it have a hairless tail and a toothed beak?

Great idea, just a couple of finer points. Go to Comment

So if a beaver was around, it would transform into a canibalistic beaver-ent?

How does the squirrel/bear/tree scenario work out?

What happens to mosquitoes? (yikes) Go to Comment

The Chimera oil wears off when it dries. It all depends on temp, humidity, and the amount used. (And how annoyed the GM is by the use of the oil... another factor).

The merging, as from the scenario, was the owl eating the mouse and absorbing its parts. In the way of Chimera, it is an owl with whiskers and little round ears, the process that works. If it was the hairless tail and toothed beak it would probably not live long. Go to Comment

It could turn into a plant beaver cross.

The squirrel/ bear/ tree was a terrible running accident at the wrong time. Squirrel and tree were merging and the bear got stuck in that combination and... it is just icky.

Mosquitos... ah my favorite vector for disease and genetic mismashing. How mean do you want to be? They will eventually suck something with a high enough concentration of oil in their body that they will turn into flesh clay and mold themselves to the next thing they try to bite (or even land on). They might actually just die off, as they turn into mangled clay shapes. Go to Comment

Ylorea, that of course is the point of this item. It seems so controllable, yet what happens if the urn cracks at the wrong time, or you accidently smudge some on yourself, or... well the possibilities for mayham and new plot lines is endless.

Yet, there are disguise uses, 12th century plastic surgery, monster creation, and 101 other uses, so you just want to have this stuff around. Go to Comment

This was originally posted so long ago (almost 4 years ago), that you probably voted on it and moved on. That was the order of the day back then, to vote and move on. Go to Comment

Who invented Vasoline? Or who invented the Gas Sock. Or who invented the Philosopher Stone Process? Nobody really knows (except for those esoteric students of subject). It really does not impact anyone (except those that make wikipedia articles).

This isn't a "one time item", this is a liquid that any well stocked alchemist will have at least a dropper full of. (Made by some great alchemist somewhere else).

Any location with a Master Alchemist. Since those tend to be urbane types, it would be something in a large city. The guy who makes this would be the King's Alchemist or Guild Master of the Nations Alchemist Guild. Or he could be a master alchemical scholar who lives out in the sticks away from everyone.

Hmmm, I think you better be extremly carefull when applying this oil. If by accident you get a drop of this stuff on your hands, you can mold your own hands and we get.....

This gives me a great idea... some oil and fifteen soldiers... Smear the oil on their sides and you get like a unbreachable human barier of fifteen man wide. (Make sure you leave their arms untouched, so you have thirty arms on this wall.)

On a more serious note. I like the idea and the possibilities. I also see the drawbacks, so I better not give this item to my players. They would undoubtetly get themselves in trouble. Go to Comment

A nice addition to any set of alchemic tools, a good solid idea which can easily be inserted in any seeting or campaign. Could easily fire of an adventure in itself. Go to Comment

I am a sucker for alchemical and herbalistic stuff. I am a sucker for good ideas. This is both. 4.5/5 rounded up to a 5. I do not think ideas and concepts like this necessarily needs a thorough background as it is not a unique item. Go to Comment

I like it, the best point about it would be getting my players in trouble. It can also be used as an interesting weapon, spray a few drops on a player in the midst of battle. Go to Comment

I think some comments got lost, because everyone in the comments in talking about previous examples that I don't see anywhere. Oh well.

I like the idea, but it seems incomplete. Not much background, and lots of mechanics aren't completely set to me. But the idea is supercool. Go to Comment
