Korinthan Gag Jar

By:

In the town of Bin-Erek the Korinthan Thieves employ several alchemists that provide them with special gear. The Gag Jar is an expensive concoction they use in an emergency.

Full Item Description
The "Gag Jars" are pear shaped ceramic jars whose lids have been sealed with beeswax and then strapped tight with thin threads of rope. When a thief smashes this jar against the ground, its contents produce a gagging smell so intense that all who inhale soon double over, feeling they cannot breathe, along with the urge to vomit.

The effect is longer in small rooms, or in places with poor ventilation, and if it is smashed or otherwise opened in a small cell without a window, well, the victims might actually die.

When opened the Gag Jar reveals its contents: a dung like substance with an eerie purplish tinge. Flies seem to favor the mass, which has been made from the dung of several animals, mixed with some potent plants.

History
The Korinthans use the jars against pursuing city guards and private guards that show up at an inopportune time. Seasoned burglars and pickpockets may keep such a jar around to avoid being thrown into the dungeons, or worse.

Selling it: Any Korinthan thief can buy "Gag Jars" from his local guild representative. It takes a couple of days to deliver, up to a week at the most, and it will cost him some silver to buy.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
