Anti-Alcohol

By:

It was meant to be a great help in a city’s battle with booze, but all too often it has merely become another tool in the criminal armoury…

Full Item Description
Anti-alcohol is yellowish-brown and looks and tastes, if drunk by itself, like a pleasent-tasting beer.

History
In her early years as Queen, before like Yocasta before her she turned to the dark side, Queen Amber of Vallermoore was very concerned about the number of drunkards and alcoholics who roamed the streets, shouting, swearing, fighting, committing crimes or themselves getting beaten up, and generally being a nuisance.

So she sent a couple of her court wizards to the Sorcery Springs Geyser Basin to see if a cure could be found.
After trial and error (the errors being those of prisoners forced to imbibe the waters) they came across a small fast flowing geyser and from the water they took from that they were able to create a potion of anti-alcohol. Whilst alcohol made sober people into drunks, this when administered to the drunk made him or her sober, and appeared to have few or no side effects.

However, like most potions of this type it was soon found that there were drawbacks. If someone who was sober took this in a large quantity it could cause a severe depression, but that was relatively uncommon. If someone took this and then took alcohol it would hold off the drunkenness for a while, as if the drinker had consumed Time-Wine, also known as Mathom’s Juice. The biggest problem was that it left the user hypersensitive to alcohol so that when they next drank, one glass of alcohol would be as strong as four glasses.

Thieves, slavers, kidnappers and press gangs were quick to see the advantages of this. As a result, laws were passed to attempt to keep it out of criminal hands, but they have not been very successful, and what was meant to be a quick way to sober up drunks has become another drug for criminals to sleep into people’s drinks.

Magic/Cursed Properties

If used as it is intended to it sobers up the drunkard and lessens his or her hangover to a dull ache. If slipped into someone’s drink it will prevent them getting drunk or even tipsey for a day. Then the nest time he or she drinks alcohol he or she will get totally drunk very quickly, to the point where he or she is helpless to defend himself or herself from robbery, kiddnapping or an even worse fate.

Very interesting... Might be entertaining when snuck into a game's taverns.

"What the hell is the crap you've been giving us? I've drank six of the buggers and I still can't feel anything!"

"You may be right - I've got some new stuff being delivered tomorrow night - that should satisfy you." Evil Grin..

Question: If a sober person drinks it, it holds off the effects of alcohol for a while, but then you say they become hypersensitive. What is the time interval between the resistive and magnification effects? Or does it delay the effects, but when they hit, they are much worse?





It might be more flexible if it were identical to alcohol - clear and and tasteless - so it could be added to hard liquors, wines, etc.

You're right, I will edit it soon.

If a sober person drinks it he/she become hypersensitive after 24 hours, before that, any alcohol drunk will not hurt him/her at all.

This is a great idea, just imagine what the effects will be when the bartender puts this in all of the drinks, and he runs a tavern infamous for drunken brawls, imagine how violent things would get when they realize their still sober after 26 pints.....

One morning, the sun does not rise. It seems that a great darkness has settled across the kingdom - at first, it is merely an inconvenience, but as time passes and plants begin to sicken and die, some action must be taken. As the deluded King plans the sacrifice of fifty tender virgins in the name of the Sun God, rumours spread of an ancient barrow uncovered in the hills...
