Nice idea, but didn't Agar post something like this a while ago?

The idea that it works for anyone or anything seems to be open for abuse by the evil GM, who could certainly convince his characters that any NPC can be fooled by their elixir, before making saving throws for key NPCs. Sooner or later they'll get too cocky and get noticed...

What happens if they murder someone while using this potion? Do they suddenly become noticeable again?

Some things that ephe didn't mention:
Is it the elixer of invisibility or misconception?
Also, could you clean up the spelling and punctuation? It would help us a lot.

It is, however, a good idea. Kind of like a potion for the Mental Invisibility Method.

If one person notices the potion-drinker, and they alert others to the potion-drinker's presence, do said others become aware also?

Actually, I think you're thinking of the Shirt of Unnoticability, and that was drphluid's.

If this is a elixer of mosconception, wouldn't the people notice the person, just have the wrong ideas about them?

"Excuse me, old woman?!"

"I'm not a woman!"

"Sorry. Excuse me old man?"

"I'm not old either!"

And Capt, either the post has been edited, or I can't see the spelling and punctuation errors.

This is an item that can be dangerous in the hands of the wrong people. Imagine an evil invader gives some kobold suicide assassins this stuff, they waltz into the kings chambers and knife him, and maybe even waltz back out if no one saw them doing the deed. If they're smart enough to wait till nature calls, they could get him all alone with no one the wiser.

This stuff is as powerful as your planning goes, and DMs are an evil lot.

Not a bad idea. Definetly needs some tweaking though. It would kind of fun if instead of drinking the potion you had to splash some on the person or people you wanted to disregard you so that you couldent use it to easily. Maybe even decrease the duration of this item to about 2 to 4 hours. Overall it seems like just something else to add to the ever expanding (not to mention completely scattered about)list of fun little items for rouges and theives to use to mess with decent folk. Not that thats a bad thing. Good job. (I just though of this, what if the magic only worked because it gets in the targets eyes and magically blurs thier vision so you look like someone else that they know but have no need to pay attention to.Oh my so much potential.)

Then again, if you get somewhere you should not be at all (or no one should be at all), the magic would not protect you.

"Hey! What the hell are you doing in the king's Treasury!"
"Ehhh... nothing, just cleaning up."
"Get him!"

Same applies to killing and other too noticeable acts.

Changing the duration to only ten minutes per caster level would be a good idea I think.
Then just change it into a spell, so you can make a potion out of it with the brew potion feat would be fun.

I think I will use it this way..... (Yes my remarks make this a D&D item.)

btw Captain... It is very nice that you are american and so american comes as a natural language to you. I would like to remind you one more time that some of us actualy have had to learn this language as our second or third language....

Captin Penguin is just doing his part to help make the submissions better, he's allright. He was polite and courteous in his comment, so that's ok. I still can't see what he's talking about, but that's just me.

... And anyway, who said he was american? He could be from Luxemburg for all I know, but it's not important. We're all just trying to make the submissions good, and if no one mentions bad spelling and/or grammer, then it doesn't get changed, and the submission is not as good as it could be.

If I am to understand the "brew potion" feat correctly, it lets you turn a spell into a consumable drink? I can only imagine the abuse that can get. "Potion of True Strike!"

No, I really am American, though, since I am a penguin, I hail originally from Antarctica. May the golden Penguin Empire of Asmik never end!

If you want to sum up the effects of this potion, just look up the "Arcane" Background trait in Mage: the Ascension - hard to remember, even harder to describe, when unconspicious disregarded as harmless/uninteresting.

This is but a repetition of the classic 'Another Person's Business' phenomenon, and would be more appropriate for a veil, a fan, a mask or clothing than a potion...

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
